Atlas/Omnivore, 1982. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A mighty meeting of two modern alto giants – a set cut under the leadership of Lee Konitz, but which also features some great work from Art Pepper too!

Art Pepper with Pete JollyWest Coast Sessions Vol 2 – Pete Jolly (Strike Up The Band/bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlas/Omnivore, 1980. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
An overlooked showcase for the late alto genius of Art Pepper – who was the supposed leader of this date issued under the name of pianist Pete Jolly! Jolly's great, too – very much in the sharpest form of his earliest sides from the 50s and 60s – and the pair work here in a tight ... read more CD

Art Pepper with Shelly ManneWest Coast Sessions Vol 6 – Shelly Manne (Hollywood Jam – with bonus track) ... CD
Atlas/Omnivore, 1981. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A swinging small group date led by drummer Shelly Manne – with a wonderful update of the older west coast jazz sound – one that maybe has a bit more bite than back in the 50s! The set's one of the excellent dates done by the Japanese Atlas label – and features Shelly at the head ... read more CD

Jukka Perko TritoneDizzy ... CD
WeJazz (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
Nothing dizzy at all here – as the record's got a confident, forward-moving direction right from the start – a hard-burning saxophone trio, in a manner that you'd usually be used to hearing from a tenor – but featuring the bold alto of Jukka Perko on the lead! Perko works with ... read more CD

Never-heard work from the legendary bassist Oscar Pettiford – recorded at a time when he was making some very big waves on the European scene!

✨✧ Flip PhillipsYour Place Or Mine ... CD
Jump, 1963. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
One of the few post-Verve albums ever recorded by tenorist Flip Phillips – and also one of his most unique as well! The early 60s date has a very unusual format – just Flip on tenor and a bit of bass clarinet, blowing beautifully alongside the guitar of Dell Staton, who also plays a ... read more CD

Enrico Pieranunzi/Mads Vinding/Alex RielYesterdays – Mads Vinding Trio Live In Copenhagen 1997 ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 1997. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
Bassist Mads Vinding really seems to bring out something special in the musicians he works with – and here, his sense of balance and tone is a beautiful accompaniment to the piano of Enrico Pieranunzi – who seems both to have that fantastic flow of his other records, but maybe a bit ... read more CD

John PizzarelliSinatra & Jobim @ 50 ... CD
Concord, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
John Pizzarelli on bossa jazz guitar and surprisingly sublime vocals – especially when dueting with Daniel Jobim – on a sweet little ode to the classic pairing of Frank Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim a half century earlier! One of the most charming aspects of the Sinatra/Jobim work ... read more CD

Specs PowellMovin In ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $9.99
Hard-swinging jazz featuring drummer Specs Powell – and a tight batch of Basie-esque players, grooving along on a number of short lively tracks that are almost in the Count Basie style of the Roulette years! The lineup features alto and baritone sax from Sahib Shihab, tenor and clarinet from ... read more CD

Tadeusz PrejznerSpacer Brzegiem Morza ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
A really dreamy little record from the Polish scene of the early 70s – a record that mixes jazzy solos, light strings, and almost a soundtrack-style of arrangements – all to make music with the kind of glow that would be right at home on late 60s A&M Records, or maybe like the ... read more CD

Billy Preston16 Year Old Soul (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Derby/Real Gone, 1963. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98
Easily one of the coolest, hippest, and most soulful records that Billy Preston ever cut – very different both from his famous work on A&M, and his early sides for Apple and Vee Jay – and done with a raw groove that makes each cut feel like some rare funky 45! The style here is a ... (Soul, Jazz) read more CD

PSIHorizonte ... CD
Bellaphon/GAD (Poland), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
Very cool work from Psi – a hip 70s German group who were partly fusion, partly prog – in that special sort of blend shared by a rare few contemporaries – such as Embryo, Perigeo, or Zzebra! As with all three of those groups, the musicians here are clearly schooled in jazz, but ... read more CD

Sun RaIn The Orbit Of Ra ... CD
Strut (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 16.99
A really wonderfully-done collection of work from the legendary Sun Ra – put together by longtime musical partner Marshall Allen, and way way different than the typical mish-mash of tracks you'd find on some of the budget or public domain titles on the market! First off, the track selection ... read more CD

Sun RaMagic City (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saturn/Cosmic Myth, 1965. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
One of the most important Sun Ra albums from the early years of Saturn Records – a set that got a bit more circulation than some of his other records, and which shows the group really expanding their sonic range in a wonderful way! The title track takes up all of side one – and is this ... read more CD

Saturn/Art Yard, Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A set of varied moods and settings – yet one that really does a wonderful job of fleshing out the Sun Ra aesthetic during these crucial years when Ra dubbed himself the "King Of The Sub Underground"! That humorous title is a reference to the fact that Ra and the Arkestra were still ... read more CD

✨✧ Sun Ra & His Solar ArkestraI Roam The Cosmos (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Art Yard/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $28.99
Fantastic material from Sun Ra – a never-heard 1972 performance at Slugs, and one that captures the group at their most spiritual point! The core of the set is the track "I Roam The Cosmos" – one of the more obscure Ra compositions, and a title that appears here for the first ... read more CD

✨✧ Chico RandallRelax'n With Chico Randall ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
Chico's our kinda singer – a small combo jazz pianist who also vocalizes while playing – in a style that reminds us a bit of Matt Dennis at the time! Chico's got a warm, honest voice – no Sinatra on the pipes, but an easygoing style that we really love – especially as it ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Jimmy RaneyTwo Jims & Zoot ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful work from guitarist Jimmy Raney – easily one of his standout sets of the 60s, and a record that features some great second guitar from Jim Hall! The pairing of guitars makes for a really unique sort of sound – one that's more languidly flowing than some of Raney's previous ... read more CD
