Inner City, 1970. New Copy ... $7.99 16.95
An excellent album of funky electric jazz – and possibly the best one that Phil Woods cut with his European group! The quartet's a very hip group that's way hipper than its clunky name – with Gordon Beck on electric piano and organ, Daniel Humair on percussion and drums, and Henri ... read more CD

Tsuyoshi YamamotoIn Crowd (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $23.99

Denon (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $23.99
One of the most beautiful albums we've ever heard from pianist Yosuke Yamashita – a set that's still as creatively constructed as some of his other records, but one that's also got a very different vibe as well!

Trio/Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $24.99
A drivin' little record from pianist Kazuo Yashiro – a player who cut some more soul jazz-oriented work in the 60s, but who's working here in a more fluid, open style overall!

YellowjacketsMirage A Trois ... CD

A classic early set from The Yellowjackets – just the kind of record that made them a mainstream fusion leader in the 80s! The style here takes off from 70s electric jazz with a bit more polish – not really smooth jazz, but a tight fusion of keyboards and guitars that are nicely ... read more CD

RCA/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $18.99
