David LiebmanWhat It Is ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
Dave Liebman sounds wonderful here in a warmer fusion mode – a set that's a great reminder of what a versatile musician he can be, especially in these earlier years of his career! Liebman had plenty of experience on the farther side of the jazz spectrum, but he also still sounds great here ... read more CD

Life & Other Transient StormsLife & Other Transient Storms ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
The group name's a combination of the two long performances on the album – titled "Life" and "Other Transient Storms" – but that hardly gives you a full picture of their sound – which comes from the work of Susana Santos Silva on trumpet and flugelhorn, Lotte ... read more CD

Clean Feed (Portugal), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
A totally wonderful group, and one with a really unique sound – not just from the music of bassist Chris Lightcap, but also from the tenors of Chris Cheek and Tony Malaby, and the wonderful keyboards of Craig Taborn!

John Lindberg BC3 with Wendell Harrison & Kevin NoBorn In An Urban Ruin ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
Bassist John Lindberg is the leader here – but the record starts with a beautiful solo clarinet piece by reedman Wendell Harrison – who we've loved ever since his Tribe Records work of the 70s! Harrison has played in many formats over the years – some more straight or polished ... read more CD

Charles LloydForest Flower – Charles Lloyd At Monterey ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99
A famous album – and for good reason too! The set's something of a landmark in spiritual jazz from the 60s – and it features a classic live performance from Charles Lloyd, recorded at the Monterey Jazz Festival – almost as a distillation and popularization of ideas that were ... read more CD

Joe LockeLove Is A Pendulum ... CD
Motema, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A really beautiful record from vibist Joe Locke – and maybe his most dynamic album in years!

Didier LockwoodApesantar ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
One of the most experimental albums we've ever heard from Didier Lockwood – a set that goes far beyond his more familiar jazz violin, to a heady, spacious style that really fits the image on the cover!

Julie London with Bobby TroupJulie London In Tokyo 1964 – The Julie London Show ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $22.99
Great 60s material from the lovely Julie London – and a set that's a really nice contrast to the style of her studio work on Liberty Records at the time! The performance is a live one – a setting that Julie hardly ever recorded in – with a very cool small combo at the core, ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

London Experimental Jazz QuartetInvisible Roots (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Scratch/Shout (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $24.99
That's London, Ontario – not London, England – which means that the group have an even more far-flung sound than you might expect! The album's a brilliant and overlooked gem from the Canadian scene of the 70s – really mindblowing music by a group who are equally great at grooving ... read more CD

Danny LongShe's Here At Last (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Hark/Vivid (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
A really cool little record from the little-known Danny Long – a sweet self-released project from the 70s that really gets at the charm of the indie scene at the time! Danny plays lots of Fender Rhodes on the record – in these warm jazzy solos that are a perfect accompaniment for his ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Lionel LouekeGaia ... CD
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
Maybe the most dynamic record we've heard from guitarist Lionel Loueke so far – even though it's only a trio set, with less musicians than some of Lionel's other albums! The approach here is pretty fierce – heavy drums at most times from Ferenc Nemeth, and brooding bass from Massimo ... read more CD

Joe LovanoClassic – Live At Newport ... CD
Blue Note, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A definite classic from the great Joe Lovano – a set recorded a decade before its release, and a rock-solid live performance that has Lovano in tip-top formation! Tracks are long, and very open – and Joe blows tenor with this exploratory, creative energy that's a lot like his Vanguard ... read more CD

Henry LowtherChild Song (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Deram (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $31.99
One of the few albums cut as a leader by trumpeter Henry Lowther – a great player on the British scene of the end of the 60s, but one who mostly labored in the service of other groups at the time! Lowther emerges here as an extremely visionary leader – one with a scope of expression ... read more CD

Killer set that combines both of Johnny's rare albums cut for the tiny Tuba label in the mid 60s!

Edison MachadoEdison Machado e Samba Novo ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Brazil's best jazz sessions of the 60s – and one of those records that shows that although Verve and other US labels could record their own version of bossa nova, the style still always sounded best when coming from Brazil! Drummer Edison Machado really nocks it out of the park here ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more CD
