Ray BryantAlone With The Blues ... LP
New Jazz/Prestige, 1958. Very Good ... $24.99
A very striking album – one of Ray Bryant's most noteworthy of the time! The album features Ray playing solo piano – quite unusual for the period, as most piano jazz records, especially his, were at least cut in a trio format – with additional bass and drums. Yet the approach ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray BryantLittle Susie ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
Hard-hitting trio work from Ray – one of his early albums for Columbia, and the record that gave him a surprisingly big hit! "Little Susie" is one of those early 60s soul jazz standards, the kind of catchy tune that got played all over the place on radio, and which forever put the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray BryantRay Bryant Plays ... LP
Signature, 1959. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the most obscure albums ever by pianist Ray Bryant – a set recorded for the tiny Signature label in the years between his work with Epic and Columbia! The record's every bit as great as Ray's sides for bigger labels at the time – very soulful grooving in a stripped-down and lean ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray BryantSlow Freight ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A killer album by soul jazz pianist Ray Bryant! The title track, "Slow Freight", is an amazing 10 minute groover that moves at a very slow pace (just like a freight train), and which features some very cool ad-lib talking by Paul Serrano – a pretty groovy touch that really adds a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ray BryantSoul ... LP
Sue, 1965. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Ray's going for soul soul soul on this set – working with a stripped-down trio that features brother Tommy Bryant on bass and the great Walter Perkins on drums – both helping Ray to craft a laidback and mellow soul jazz groove, with an organic sound that feels like it sprung right up ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Sue pressing. Cover has a small name in pen on back.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ray BryantTake A Bryant Step ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A great album of jazzy tracks that features the hard left-hand piano of Ray Bryant over sweet soul arrangements by Richard Evans, in the same style that Cadet used for some of Ramsey Lewis' best work from the time! Ray also arranged a few of the cuts, in a mode that's just like Evans' – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ray Bryant TrioCon Alma (Columbia Jazz Masterpieces) ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Pure genius from Ray Bryant – the kind of a record that few other players could ever hope to cut, and a fantastic demonstration of Ray's extremely soulful approach to the trio format! Bryant's working here with Bill Lee on bass and Mickey Roker on drums – in a triple-burning setting ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ray Bryant TrioGotta Travel On ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A stone groover from the great Ray Bryant – one of his brilliant albums for Cadet from the 60s! Ray's soul jazz trio (with Freddie Waits on drums) is augmented by the 2-horn trumpet section he used on some of his other Cadet recordings from the time – trumpet from Snookie Young and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rusty BryantFire Eater ... LP
Prestige, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A monster – and one of the best jazz funk albums ever on Prestige! Rusty Bryant blows his top off on this one – taking his tenor stylings out of the more staid R&B mode of earlier years, working with some younger heavy funk jazz players to craft a brilliant album of long searing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rusty BryantRusty Bryant Plays Jazz ... LP
Dot, 1957. Very Good- ... $6.99
Seems funny that an album title would need to say "Rusty Bryant plays jazz", but at the time this one was cut, Rusty was thought more of as an R&B tenor honker, which to most jazzers was not the same thing. This set offers Rusty in a new light to the listeners of the 50s – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rusty BryantRusty Bryant Returns ... LP
Prestige, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A real smoker of a session – Rusty Bryant's first comeback album of the jazz funk years, done in a mode that virtually set the tone for other Prestige sessions of the time! Rusty's working here on alto sax, in a mode that's clearly inspired by the Lou Donaldson sessions of the time on Blue ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dave BurnsDave Burns ... LP
Vanguard, Early 60s. Near Mint- (reissue)... $7.99
One of the few albums ever cut by trumpeter Dave Burns – an excellent batch of soul jazz numbers with a comfortable easy swing that will make you wonder why he wasn't a much bigger success! Dave played trumpet briefly in the Dizzy Gillespie and Duke Ellington groups – and at the time ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ralph BurnsFree Forms (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, 1951. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A great modern jazz-meets-strings session that follows from Burns' exploratory "Introspection" title for the Jazz Scene collection! Ralph pens some inventive charts that utilize a 15 piece chamber orchestra as backdrops for his own bold lines on piano, as well as some key solo bits from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roy BurnsDrum Set Artistry ... LP
Alfred Music, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $13.99
Drummer Roy Burns leads a funky big band that includes Fender Rhodes, electric bass, and electric guitar – in addition to the usual brace of horns and woodwinds. The tracks are all quite hip – bouncing along in a mode that might have made the folks at MPS proud, or which reminds us of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny BurrellGeneration Ago Today ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A really sweet little album from guitarist Kenny Burrell – one in which he takes older tunes ("a generation ago"), and updates them with a sweetly compressed Verve 60s groove ("today"!) The record features 2 small groups – one with Ron Carter, Grady Tate, and Phil ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $12.99
Surprisingly wonderful work from Kenny! The album has Kenny's guitar set to arrangements by Gil Evans – who gives the session a modern edge that really sets it apart from other Burrell albums of the time. Kenny's freed to do his thing – wonderfully, we might add – and Gil paints ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny BurrellHandcrafted ... LP
Muse, 1978. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An obscure little session from Kenny Burrell – recorded at the end of the 70s, and with a very laidback feel! The set was produced by Helen Keane, who'd done some of Bill Evans' greatest sets – and who had a real ear for the mellower side of the jazz spectrum. And for the record, she's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kenny BurrellJazzmen Detroit ... LP
Savoy, 1956. Very Good- ... $68.99
One of the first albums from guitarist Kenny Burrell as a leader – a date that has him working with players from his hometown scene in Detroit – in case you couldn't guess from the title! Kenny's style here is a bit different than on the Blue Note dates of the time – almost a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1956. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Early genius from Kenny Burrell – a set that features the guitarist sounding beautiful in a variety of settings, all of them great!
