New Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton Special ... LP
Epic, 1960. Near Mint- ... $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

Jimmy HamiltonIt's About Time ... LP
Swingville, 1961. Very Good ... $33.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Jan HammerFirst Seven Days ... LP
Nemperor/Atlantic, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A surprisingly great early album from Jan Hammer – the keyboardist who went onto do some pretty drecky albums in later years, but who still has a surprising amount of sensitivity at this point! The session's a bit of a concept outing – recorded by Hammer after work in Mahavishnu ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Johnny HammondHigher Ground ... LP
Kudu, 1973. Very Good ... $7.99
Massive work from Johnny Hammond – stretching out here in some totally jamming grooves that really transform his style for the 70s! The sound here is a lot hipper and tighter than some of Hammond's more rough-edged soul jazz of the 60s – a groove that's a great precursor to his more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch. Vinyl plays with a short click on the first track.)

New Lionel HamptonFlying Home ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
If you ask us, Hamp from this time is a lot more exciting than he was in the early days!

New Lionel HamptonHamp's Big Four ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Although Lionel Hampton's always best remembered for his storming swing days in the early 40s, we love him on records like this one – an easy open-ended straight jazz session from the 50s, with lots of room for soloing in a much more jazz-oriented vein than you'll hear on Hamp's early records. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barclay (France), Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An overlooked treasure from Slide Hampton – a late 60s set that's one of his grooviest albums ever – recorded in France, and darn hard to find!
