Johnny LytleLoop/New & Groovy ... CD
BGP (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99
Killer set that combines both of Johnny's rare albums cut for the tiny Tuba label in the mid 60s! The records both have a great funky vibes sound, with lots of tight drumming, and soulful bubbling organ grooves. These are very sought after in their original pressings, and both LPs usually fetch ... read more CD

Johnny LytleSoulful Rebel/People & Love ... CD
Milestone/Dusty Groove, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $5.99 12.98
Two lost smokers from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – back to back on a single CD! The Soulful Rebel is lost early 70s set from Lytle – totally funky, but in a way that's very different than his famous 60s work! The album's got a sweet electric groove that comes not only from Johnny's ... read more CD

JMT/Winter & Winter (Germany), Late 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A great overview of the M-Base movement on the New York scene of the late 80s – a group of musicians who worked together to unlock many boundaries in jazz – and really set the music free in a variety of different styles! The sounds here range from more familiar jazz to vocal work, ... read more CD

Harold MabernLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 15.99
One of the best Harold Mabern albums we've heard in years – recorded with a trio of familiar partners, John Webber on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but in a freewheeling live setting that has the group really stretching out over some long, extended tracks! Mabern's sense of ... read more CD

Smoke Sessions, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99

Joe MagnarelliThree On Two ... CD
Posi tone, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
A killer from trumpeter Joe Magnarelli – an artist we've already begun to appreciate a lot for his recent work on the Posi-tone label – but a player who really wins us over with this sweet little set! The record sparkles right from the start with contributions from key labelmates ... read more CD

Mike MainieriWanderlust ... CD
Warner (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $5.99
A real killer from vibesman Mike Mainieri – a set that's got a darker edge than some of his previous work, while still hanging onto all the warm touches of his own instrument in the lead! Backings are full, but never uptight – and there's a loosness to the record that really works well ... read more CD

Junior ManceJunior ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $9.99
A groovy early album from pianist Junior Mance – one of the first we've ever seen with him as a leader, and a rare date recorded at the end of the 50s for Verve! The style here is a fair bit like some of Junior's work of the early 60s – a definite soul jazz leaning, but also some more ... read more CD
Also available Junior ... CD 9.99

Manhattan Jazz OrchestraGet It On ... CD
King (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... $9.99
The Manhattan Jazz Orchestra definitely get it on here – as the album's almost a return to some of the funkier 70s styles of group lead David Matthews! The performance is still all acoustic – in the manner of the gorup's other albums – but Matthews brings back that bounce at the ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz OrchestraLes Liaisons Dangereuses (No Problem) ... CD
King (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... $9.99
A wonderful set from this mighty ensemble – a record that opens up immediately in a range of complex colors and tones, yet all with a quality that still manages to swing throughout! That balance is part of the real strengths of pianist/arranger David Matthews at this point in his career ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz OrchestraMoanin ... CD
King (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $9.99
Pianist David Matthews expands his Manhattan Jazz Quintet to a full orchestra here – a very vibrant large ensemble that includes most of the members from the core combo, but really expands the sound with a flourish of trumpets and trombones! The added brass is never used in a hokey way at ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz OrchestraNight In Tunisia ... CD
King (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... $9.99
Pianist David Matthews first got his start writing arrangements for the James Brown band of the late 60s – but over the years, he turned into a hell of a jazz arranger too – as you'll hear on this smoking large ensemble set from 1993! The record's got a special vibe right from the ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz OrchestraPaint It Black ... CD
King (Japan), 1996. New Copy ... $16.99
The music of the Rolling Stones – taken into completely fresh territory by this big band headed up by 70s funk arranger David Matthews! Almost all tunes here are originals by Jagger & Richards – but Matthews provides new arrangements for them all, which results in this cascading ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz QuintetAutumn In New York ... CD
King (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... $16.99
Way more than just the sleepy set of standards you might guess from the title, and instead a record that has the Manhattan Jazz Quintet really opening up with fresh rhythms from Charnett Moffett on bass and Victor Lewis on drums! Both players bring a fresh twist to the album – working ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz QuintetConcierto De Aranjuez ... CD
King (Japan), 1994. New Copy ... $16.99
A different album than usual for the Manhattan Jazz Quintet – as you might guess from the album's title reference to the famous composition by Rodrigo – which seems to inspire the group into a whole new range of colors and tones! The instrumentation is more varied than before, while ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz QuintetManhattan Blues ... CD
King (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $18.99
The title gets it partly right, as the Manhattan Jazz Quintet have some added help on guitar from John Scofield on a few tracks – whose lines definitely underscore some of the more blues-based colors in the music! Scofield's an open, chromatic master on his instrument – and that ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz QuintetManhattan Jazz Quintet Live At Pit Inn ... CD
King (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $14.99
The Manhattan Jazz Quintet play live at Tokyo's legendary Pit Inn – a great venue for the group, given their strong support from the Japanese market in the 80s! The group's right at home here – working in that wonderfully dynamic style that draws strongly from the bass of Eddie Gomez ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz QuintetOriginal Voice ... CD
King (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... $16.99
The "voice" here is great – a strong assemblage of the trumpet of Lew Soloff, tenor of George Young, piano of David Matthews, bass of Charnett Moffett, and drums of Victor Lewis! Lewis is an especially nice addition to the mix – a fresh Manhattan Jazz Quintet drummer for the ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Manhattan Jazz QuintetSidewinder ... CD
King (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $16.99
The album's titled after a classic song by trumpeter Lee Morgan – a great choice, given that the trumpet of Lew Soloff is such a strong force in the group – blowing bold, bright, and maybe more full of energy than on another setting we think we've heard him in! And the tenor of George ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Herbie MannBird In A Silver Cage ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet funky 70s work from Herbie Mann – one of his best records of the time, and a set that's got a stretched-out and slightly cosmic feel! The album's clearly the brainchild of writer/arranger/producer Sylvester Levay – who also plays keyboards on the session, and creates a groove ... read more CD
Also available Bird In A Silver Cage ... LP 2.99
