Jari Haapalainen TrioFusion Machine (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
No fusion here – at least not in the traditional sense – but the album is a really made fusion of drums, electric bass, and tenor saxophone – the last of which is played by the great Per Texas Johansson, with a force that's more than strong enough to match the other two ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie HadenBallad Of The Fallen ... LP
ECM, 1983. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the greatest records that Charlie Haden ever did, and a record that stands as sort of a bookend to his Liberation Music album on Impulse. As with that record, he's got a large group on here, and also like that one, he's playing a batch of tracks that have a definite political bent. Players ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie HadenCloseness ... LP
Horizon/A&M, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
One of Charlie's best albums of the 70s – a beautifully stripped down set of duets with well-matched players that include Alice Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Paul Motian, and Keith Jarrett! The spare format is an extremely wonderful showcase for Haden's expressive bass work – and the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie HadenLiberation Music Orchestra (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Impulse (Germany), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
One of the most beautiful albums that Charlie Haden ever recorded – and if he only ever appeared on one record in his life, we'd still love him tremendously for this one! The album has a feel that's very much in keeping with both the "liberation" and "orchestra" in the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jim HallIt's Nice To Be With You – Jim Hall In Berlin ... LP
MPS, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A wonderful album from guitarist Jim Hall – different than some of his other work, and with a slightly harder edge! The unique session has him playing in an MPS 60s mode – more straight-on than some of his more airy moments – with a sound and tone that still recalls his work with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a mark from sticker removal.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jim HallJazz Impressions Of Japan ... LP
A&M (Japan), 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $44.99
Sharp sounds from guitarist Jim Hall – a record that's filled with all the cool, complicated lines the musician could muster on his instrument – yet a record that also manages to swing a bit too! The sound here is a great evolution from the sound of Hall's music in the 50s – even ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert. Direct cutting pressing!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton Trio ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Very Good ... $14.99
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.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chico HamiltonEl Chico ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $13.99
Amazing, simply amazing – and light years ahead of the staid sounds that Chico Hamilton was cutting in the 50s! Hamilton's one of those players who has an amazing range to his music – almost all of it really incredible, as Chico always shifts things up over time – continually ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Chico HamiltonWith Strings Attached ... LP
Warner, 1959. Very Good ... $8.99
One of the best records that Chico Hamilton cut during the 50s – and one that features Eric Dolphy, who was with Chico's group for a short while! The record's got the quintet (which also includes the excellent Dennis Budimir on guitar) fronting larger string arrangements by Fred Katz (no ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Grey label pressing with deep groove.)

Johnny HammondBreakout ... LP
Kudu, 1971. Very Good ... $7.99
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 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

Johnny HammondGears (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Milestone/BGP (UK), 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99
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! Johnny "Hammond" Smith began his career as a simple soul jazz organist – but by the time of this album, he'd teamed up ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel HamptonAir Mail Special ... LP
Clef, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $11.99
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
(Original black label Clef pressing, with trumpeter logo & deep groove. Cover has split seams held with tape, half split spine, a large stain on the bottom 4 inches, with some stuck-on paper/peeling, and an inspection sticker on the opening.)

Lionel HamptonHamp In Paris ... LP
EmArcy, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $2.99
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lionel HamptonHamp! ... LP
Clef, Mid 50s. Good ... $11.99
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
(Clef pressing with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has a fully split top seam & spine.)

Lionel HamptonLionel Hampton & The Just Jazz All Stars (alternate cover) ... LP
GNP, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the few albums to really get at the genius of the Lionel Hampton group at the height of their powers – their crowd-pleasing antics that were always a big draw for live audiences! This set catches Hamp and a great group at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium – playing on long tracks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
