Bill Cosby (aka Badfoot Brown)Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown & The Bunions Bradford Funeral & Marching Band ... LP
Uni, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
A funky masterpiece from Bill Cosby – hardly the sort of record you might expect from all of his years on mainstream TV! This set was cut back when Bill was a much hipper cat on the LA scene – and it was the start of a brief all-instrumental run with his Badfoot Brown ensemble – ...

Jack CostanzoMr Bongo ... LP
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $25.99 29.99
A killer collection of work from percussionist Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo – a cat who's way cooler than you might guess from his gimmicky nickname – not only one of the most powerful forces on the west coast Latin scene in the 50s, but also one of the jazziest too! Jack's ... (Latin, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes a very cool "How To Play Bongos" instructional booklet – replicating one that was included in one of Jack's classic albums!)

Mike Cotton SoundMike Cotton Sound (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Columbia/Wah Wah (Spain), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
One of the coolest combos of the UK 60s scene – and one of the most obscure as well – a very hip instrumental group that was equal parts jazz and soul, with a vibe that was somewhere between Stax Records and mod London at the time! Hammond figures strongly into lots of these songs ... (Rock, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500! Includes a bonus insert, and cover has the cool 60s UK style of spine!)

✨✧ Curtis CounceYou Get More Bounce With Curtis Counce ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $6.99
An album with a sexy cover, but a set that's one of the more soulful from the LA scene of the 50s – thanks to a tight, sharp group working under the leadership of bassist Curtis Counce! Counce didn't cut many albums as a leader, but all of them are pretty darn great – and done with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lol CoxhillFrog Dance ... LP
Impetus (UK), 1986. Near Mint- 2LP ... $24.99
Great collection of some of Lol Coxhill's fantastic jazz experiments from the 70's and early 80's! The album features a lot of tracks that pit Lol's haunting soprano against another singular instrument – like Steven Miller's piano – or against a backdrop of beautiful sounds, like a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hank CrawfordAfter Hours ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good ... $3.99
After Hours is the time when Crawford really hits his stride – playing lean and mellow in that easy soulful way that always seemed to work better than any of his other approaches to jazz. This album's got him blowing alto and even playing a bit of piano, in middle-sized groups that include ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green Rockerfeller label pressing. Cover has light wear and a bit of pen.)

CreationSuper Rock In The Highest Voltage ... LP
EMI (Japan), 1978. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Despite the title of the album, the group's a sharp-edged fusion combo – one that hails from late 70s Japan, and who works here in the best mainstream fusion mode of the time! The tunes are mostly jazz funk with a bit of polish – heavy on guitars from Kazuo Takeda, who also takes off ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny CrissBeat Goes On ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A fantastic album from Sonny Criss! The record is one of his excellent late 60s "comeback" sides for Prestige – and it features incredibly solid, confident, and hard alto solos, blown with a tremendous amount of imagination. Bob Cranshaw and Alan Dawson provide excellent rhythm ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny CrissCriss Cross ... LP
Imperial, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $19.99
An odd one for Sonny Criss – as the record purports, on the back, to be a new recording of tunes, but really appears to be a collection of titles from some of Sonny's different sessions for Imperial, put together under a new title. We can't argue with the quality of the work, though – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny CrissMemorial Album ... LP
Xanadu, 1947/1950/1952/1965. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Very early work from Sonny Criss – cut during his young years in the LA bop scene, featuring a number of different groups all dating from 1947 to 1965. Criss does a fine job, blowing effortlessly in a style that's clearly Bird-inspired, but which has a raspy genius of its own. Players ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny CrissSonny Criss Plays Cole Porter ... LP
Imperial, 1956. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Sonny Criss plays Cole Porter – and the results are way greater than the sum of the parts – even though those parts are already pretty darn great! Criss' alto sax has a superb tone at this time – razor-sharp, and nicely crisp – yet still filled with warmth that sets it ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, on King – with insert – in beautiful shape!)

Sonny CrissSonny's Dream (Birth Of The New Cool) ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good ... $7.99
Fantastic! This is one of Sonny Criss' masterworks, and an amazing tribute to the LA jazz underground of the 60's. Horace Tapscott composed and arranged all of the tracks on here, and they form a beautiful, soulful, suite that gives Criss a perfect backdrop for his meaningful solos. The work is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

R Crumb & The Cheap Suit SerenadersR Crumb & The Cheap Suit Serenaders No 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Goose/Shanachie, 1976. Sealed (reissue)... $14.99
A cool little record with vintage sounds to match its cover image from Robert Crumb – performed here by a combo with Crumb on banjo and vocals, in kind of an offbeat take on early styles from jazz and string band music! The rest of the group plays a number of different instruments – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersChain Reaction (Original Master Recording) ... LP
Mobile Fidelity/Blue Thumb, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
On this one, the Crusaders definitely crossed from jazz into funk – but who cares, because the album's so darn great! The record's got a tight LA groove, with some excellent electric keyboards, sweet sax solos, and tight drumming throughout. True proof that sometimes a lot of money can be ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersCrusaders 1 ... LP
Chisa/Blue Thumb, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
Sweet funky Crusaders – one of the first records the group made after dropping the "Jazz" from their name, and a soulful electric set through and through! The group still have that tightly-crafted soul jazz sound that made their late 60s recordings so great – but they're also ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
