Steve KuhnAt This Time ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Wonderful work from jazz piano great Steve Kuhn! This set came to fruition after an extended engagement with his trio at NYC's Birdland, which makes a lot sense – as the interplay is so finely-honed that it feels like it must've been live-tested – in a way that's still urgent and ... read more CD

Janne KullhammarResolut Jazz ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2011. New Copy ... $9.99
A pretty great little set from drummer Janne Kullhammar – father of tenor genius Jonas Kullhammar, and a heck of a great leader in his own right! The style here is old school soul jazz, with maybe a slight contemporary vibe – played by a combo that features Claes Asekelof on guitar, ... read more CD

LA 4Going Home ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful work from this really unique west coast combo of the 70s – a quartet that draws plenty from key contributions of each of its members – but which also has a very special sound in the acoustic guitar of Laurindo Almeida! Almeida's a player who'd already been working in LA for ... read more CD

LA 4Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful group, and one with a very unique sound – a style that draws from the early 50s experiments in Brazilian jazz by Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida – but which also moves the approach into even more sophisticated 70s territory! The quartet features Almeida on acoustic guitar ... read more CD

Benny Lackner TrioSiskiyou ... CD
Unit (Switzerland), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 24.99
Pianist Benny Lackner hits a groove here that's really unique – funky, but not jazz funk at all – and instead kind of a spacious, flowing sound on his keyboard that carves out its own special feel through careful timing and well-defined sense of attack! The drums and bass in the group ... read more CD

Steve LacySteve Lacy Quintet – Last Tour ... CD
Emanem (UK), 2004. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
A fantastic performance from the final tour of the late Steve Lacy – one that features the reedman working with some of his best associates, and in a set that's a summation of everything great that he'd been doing in the previous few decades! Steve not only plays soprano sax, but also brings ... read more CD

Guy Lafitte, Wild Bill Davis & Alvin QueenDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Three Men On A Boat ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1983. New Copy ... $11.99
If we had to pick three men to spend time on a boat with, we'd be hard-pressed to come up with a better trio – the soulful sax of Guy Lafitte, the burning Hammond of Wild Bill Davis, and the jet-propelled drums of Alvin Queen! Davis is working here late in his career, but still sounding ... read more CD

Rick Laird with Joe HendersonSoft Focus ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
An album led by guitarist Rick Laird, but a set that's probably equally noteworthy for the presence of tenorist Joe Henderson on a few tracks – who really shines here in an overlooked late 70s session! The core group is great enough – as Laird has these round, classic jazz guitar tones ... read more CD

Harold LandChoma (Burn) ... CD
Mainstream/Boplicity (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the hippest albums ever from the team of Harold Land and Bobby Hutcherson – and a set that's even more open than some of their other records on Blue Note or Chess! This set's a bit more electric than some of the other records from the pair – with these drawn-out Fender Rhodes ... read more CD

Mathias LandaeusFrom The Piano ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
The title and cover really get to the heart of the matter here – as the album's definitely from the piano, but not just the keys – as pianist Mathias Landeaus has a way of playing that can really open up the whole instrument! Some numbers are beautifully lyrical and poetic, but others ... read more CD
Also available From The Piano ... LP 24.99

Neil LarsenHigh Gear ... CD
A&M/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $19.99
Great work from Neil Larsen – a keyboardist who doesn't always get his due in the hipper sides of the jazz spectrum, but who sounds mighty nice on this solo album for A&M! The set's got Neil's keyboards very firmly in the lead, and also features lots of fuzzy guitar from Buzz Feiten ... read more CD

Neil LarsenJungle Fever ... CD
A&M/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99
A standout set from keyboardist Neil Larsen – a record that crossed over big back in the 70s, and which still sounds pretty darn great in the 21st Century! Larsen's keys here are kind of a more mainstream take on territory Bob James was exploring a few years before – arguably hipper at ... read more CD

Prince Lasha EnsembleInsight ... CD
Columbia/Dusty Groove, 1966. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
Tremendous work from the legendary Prince Lasha – a rare UK-only date from 1966 – and one that has the reedman working away from more familiar contemporaries like Sonny Simmons and Eric Dolphy! The approach on this session is very unique – as Lasha includes harp with the ... read more CD

Timo LassyLove Bullet ... CD
MustHaveJazz/Membran (Finland), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99
One of the straightest jazz projects we've heard in years from Timo Lassy – a set that really gets back to the kind of soulful sounds we first loved in his music – served up here with a wicked 60s vibe, and plenty of organ in the mix! The group's a quintet, with added percussion ... (New Grooves, Jazz) read more CD

A pair of Impulse Records sessions from the 60s – back to back on a single CD! First up is 1984 – really moody magic from the great Yusef Lateef – an artist who was definitely using his time on the Impulse label to open up some new territory in his music! This set might well be ... read more CD

Yusef LateefVoice Prints ... CD
Arawak, 2014. New Copy ... $13.99
Some of the most spiritual work we've heard from Yusef Lateef in years – a set cut with AACM legends Roscoe Mitchell and Douglas Ewart, and done with a sound that takes us back to the legendary sounds of both players in the 70s! Adam Rudolph also joins the quartet, bringing in some great ... read more CD

Saravah/Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1968. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Bossa jazz from the French scene of the 60s – an ultra-hip album issued on the legendary Saravah Records label – and one that's one of the best illustrations of the label's way of blending together jazz and other global styles! The group here is a trio, with Fernando Martins on some ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more CD

Limetree/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99

Michel LegrandBonjour Paris (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/El (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $13.99
Dreamy sounds from the legendary Michel Legrand – working here in a mode that's maybe a bit more lush and romantic than some of his later soundtrack work – yet at a level that's still head and shoulders above most of his 50s instrumental contemporaries! The set's got a melancholy vibe ... read more CD

String-heavy early genius from a young Michel Legrand – tracks from some of his best travelogue albums for Columbia from the 50s!
