Cleo Laine with the John Dankworth SevenLover & His Lass ... CD
Esquire/Solid (Japan), Early 50s. New Copy ... $15.99
Wonderful early work from Cleo Laine – already one of the hippest singers on the British scene in the postwar years, with a way of phrasing and handling the material that's completely unique!

Mathias LandaeusFrom The Piano ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
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!

A sweetly soulful set from trumpeter Philip Lassiter – a jazz musician at heart, but one who's blowing here with a strong range of contemporary R&B elements!

Yusef LateefIn A Temple Garden ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
An obscure one for Yusef Lateef – and proof that the reedman was always open to new ideas at every single point in his career! Lateef had already recorded for the CTI label on a few great previous albums – but this album is quite late in his run for the label, and has a slightly ... read more CD

There's nothing churchy about the ... (Neo Soul, Jazz) read more CD

Allegra Levy's ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Lou LevyLou Levy Plays Baby Grand Jazz ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Given that a busty babe is leaning into the left side of the piano keyboard on the cover, we'd almost expect Lou Levy to focus mostly on the lighter notes on the right – but instead, he really opens up with some great deep notes on the cover, and takes the album far past anything you might ... read more CD

John Lewis & Sonny StittMusical Conversations ... CD

Kirk LightseyFirst Affairs ... CD
Limetree/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most hard-edged albums we've ever heard from pianist Kirk Lightsey – thanks to the presence of Jerry Gonzalez on congas, which really adds a nice extra bite to the record! The whole lineup is great – and includes Santi Debriano on bass and Eddie Gladden on drums – but ... read more CD
