Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton Special ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Very Good ... $3.99
Chico didn't cut too many sides for Epic – but there was a short period, between his stints with Pacific Jazz and Impulse were he did a few sessions with the label. The quintet here is the group with a cellist, in this case Nate Gershman, plus guitar, bass and Charles Lloyd on flute and alto ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton Trio ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Very Good ... $11.99
An interesting early album from Chico Hamilton – one that has him working in a trio format, quite different than the chamber modern work of his more famous quintet! The style is not dissimilar, though – as the trio lineup is drums, bass, and guitar – with both of the stringed ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy World Pacific black label pressing – with deep groove! Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Chico HamiltonDifferent Journey ... LP
Reprise, 1963. Very Good ... $14.99
Different is right – as this obscure early 60s side shows Chico Hamilton really opening up, moving past the modern chamber style of the late 50s, into the freer modal rhythms that characterized his incredible work of the 60s! The group's the beginning of that sound too – with Charles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico HamiltonSweet Smell Of Success ... LP
Decca, 1957. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful bit of cinematic jazz from the 50s – played by the Chico Hamilton group as part of the soundtrack! The combo was a key part of the LA scene at the time, but are oddly featured as a regular club act in the movie's New York setting – but we'll gladly forgive that geographic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HammondBreakout ... LP
Kudu, 1971. Very Good ... $5.99
A massive groover from the great Johnny Hammond – the famous 60s organist from the soul jazz scene, getting a whole new sound for the 70s here on the CTI label! Johnny was always one of those players who was ready to try something new – and the open, extended format of the label really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HammondForever Taurus ... LP
Milestone, 1976. Good ... $2.99
Johnny recorded this one right after his legendary Gears album, and it features production by Wade Marcus that's very much in the Larry Mizell mode that made Johnny huge in the 70s! As with the Gears record, Johnny's backed by a large ensemble of players – and the overall sound has lots of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HammondGambler's Life ... LP
Salvation, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
An amazing bit of jazz funk from Johnny Hammond – and one of his greatest LPs! This is the first album that Johnny recorded with Larry Mizell, cut right before the pair of them went onto do the landmark Gears album. While this one never became as famous as Gears, it's got some fantastic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of our favorite albums of all time – and a record that just gets better and better the more we listen to it – and we've listened to it for years!

Lionel HamptonAir Mail Special ... LP
Clef, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the standout gems from Lionel Hampton's 50s sessions for Verve – wonderful small combo recordings that let Hamp stretch out in freer solo space than usual! Although the Hampton fame always lay in his popularly-touring bigger band, and all its related pyrotechnics, we've always loved ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel HamptonHamp In Paris ... LP
EmArcy, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $1.99
A bit trad, but still a pretty great session of work from Hamp – recorded in Paris, as you'd expect from the title, a place where he did some of his finest work in the 50s! Players include Mezz Mezzrow, Buddy Banks, Andre Persiany, and Kansas Fields – and tracks include "Elmar The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel HamptonHamp! ... LP
Clef, Mid 50s. Good ... $9.99
One of Hamp's jazz sides for Verve, all of which were a lot different than the hard live sets he was still laying down around the world in the 50's. This one's a nice laid-back bit of jazz, with long tracks that let all the players – Hamp, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel HamptonLionel Hampton Quartet (10 inch LP) ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Good+ ... $9.99
Great Verve material from Lionel Hampton – and like most of his sides for the label, a set that offers small combo grooving in a very stretched out setting!

Brunswick, 1972. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great little set of instrumental tracks from Lionel Hampton – almost more soul than jazz, and set to some hipper than usual Brunswick Records arrangements – by the likes of Eugene Record, Willie Henderson, Sonny Sanders, and Hamilton Bohannon!
