Herbie MannRight Now ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good ... $2.99

Steve MarcusLord's Prayer ... LP
Vortex, 1969. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A wonderfully mixed-up, messed-up batch of jazzy tracks from the great Steve Marcus – working here at the height of his late 60s powers on Atlantic's ultra-cool Vortex label! As with other Marcus albums of the time, there's kind of a long haired, freewheeling energy to the set – jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mariachi Brass with Chet BakerDouble Shot ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A very strange chapter in Chet Baker's career – one that has him blowing the lead trumpet in World Pacific's Mariachi Brass – a group that was clearly designed as a Herb Alpert ripoff! The album's actually pretty nice, thanks to arrangements by George Tipton that sway and swing – ... (Now Sound, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bethlehem, 1955. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Brilliant early work from Charlie Mariano – key proof of his genius, and one of the main albums we'd recommend by him!

Imperial, 1951. Near Mint- ... $11.99
An aptly titled early side by Charlie Mariano – one of his first sets as a leader!

Nessa, 1976. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A wonderful later album from 50s cool jazz saxophonist Warne Marsh – one that really has an incredible focus on his tone!

One of the slickest of Dave Matthews' funk records from the 70s – but still pretty darn nice!

Atlantic, 1970. Very Good ... $1.99
A very hip record of vocal tracks – done in the same sort of spiritual soul style that Les introduced on Roberta Flack's first album, and which was also showing up on some of Donny Hathaway's work for Atlantic.

Prestige, Early 60s. Good+ ... $19.99
One of the records that put a young Brother Jack McDuff on the map – and a perfect example of the rougher R&B roots that first emerged in his early work on the Hammond! The session's got a much more down-n-dirty feel than some of McDuff's tighter 60s quartet work – and offers a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A killer, and one of three live sides McDuff cut for Prestige during the 60s – a monster session of stretched-out jazzy grooves, with many fine little dancers, and a raw soulful feel throughout!
