The first 12" LP to compile Bud Powell sides for Blue Note – nearly all of which were some of his best work of the 50s!

Prestige/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
A full funky session from master drummer Bernard Purdie – a set that expands out his previous Prestige vibe, and almost goes for a soundtrack scope to match the record's Shaft title!

A sweet funky combo from the Montreal scene of the 70s – working here in a killer set of never-issued material!

Live brilliance from the Sun Ra Arkestra – a set recorded in Tivoli in 1971, with a mix of modes that has the Arkestra swinging from spiritual passages to some very outside moments as well – sometimes with a sense of texture that's extremely powerful!

An amazing side of Sun Ra's mighty talents – the first in a series of albums that focuses on vocal material from Ra, The Arkestra, and certain key guest performers!

RakkaMykorritsan Valtakunta ... LP
Sagittarius, 2013. New Copy ... $19.99
Excellent work from Rakka – a group who make familiar instruments sound very unusual – and who weave together this magical blend of spiritual jazz, global elements, and lots of other very offbeat touches!

Ernest RanglinJazz Jamaica ... LP
Federal/Dub Store (Japan), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99

Sonorama (Germany), 1961. New Copy ... $16.99
A cool Swiss combo, very heavy on vibes – and featuring great work from the leader Remo Rau!

Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99

Candid, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the most righteous albums that Max Roach ever cut – and a monumental jazz release from the heart of the Civil Rights era!

Bjarne Rostvold TrioTricotism ... LP
RCA/Be! (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Not the usual album you might expect from a group with a trio in the name – as there's no piano in the mix, and instead the album features some sparkling trumpet from the great Allan Botschinsky – heard here at the height of his youthful, modern powers! The combo's led by drummer ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Patrice Rushen's second album – and a very sweet batch of keyboard funk! The record has Patrice working in a groove that's almost like that of Herbie Hancock at the time – using lots of electric piano, clavinet, and synth to craft some mighty fine jazz funk grooves. The group's a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
