Milt JacksonJust The Way It Had to Be ... LP
Impulse/ABC, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
Way nicer than some of Milt's earlier work – and one of the gems he recorded with bassist Ray Brown during the late 60s. The group's got a tight soul jazz stepping groove – with Monty Alexander on piano, comping along right over Ray's warm basslines in a very tasty way. Teddy Edwards ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonOlinga ... LP
CTI, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
Milt Jackson's third album for CTI – part of a wonderful run that really helped him redefine his sound in the 70s! The album's got the electric approach you'd expect from the label – a great change from the sound of Jackson in the Modern Jazz Quartet, and a surprisingly great setting ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt JacksonOpus De Jazz (Arista) ... LP
Savoy, 1955. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of the best-known 50s jazz sessions from the Savoy label – a laidback classic that's a great illustration of the label's shift in modes after the early bop years! The setting here is relatively informal – with Milt Jackson as the ersatz leader, working almost in blowing session ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt JacksonStatements ... LP
Impulse, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
A great statement from vibist Milt Jackson – one of his key solo sessions in a great 60s run of recordings away from the Modern Jazz Quartet! Like the classics that followed this one, the vibe is much more soulful than any of Milt's records with the MJQ – kind of an extension of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt JacksonSunflower ... LP
CTI, 1972. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Proof that Milt Jackson was easily the hippest member of the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one of the few who could really open up into different sounds away from that combo! This sweet 70s set for CTI is totally great – a whole new chapter for Jackson's vibes, and a real re-setting of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Non-gatefold pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt Jackson & Ray CharlesSoul Brothers ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the great jazz sessions that Ray Charles cut towards the end of his years at Atlantic Records – a surprisingly great little album with vibist Milt Jackson! The set really shows a side of Milt that didn't always surface in the Modern Jazz Quartet – and Charles is surprisingly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt Jackson & Wes MontgomeryBags Meets Wes! ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good- ... $11.99
A beautiful combination we'd like to hear more of – one that comes from the meeting of Milt Jackson's vibes and the guitar of Wes Montgomery – both recorded here in easygoing brilliance! The session's a nice break from the usual sound of both players at the time – and although ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Bill Grauer pressing with microphone logo & deep groove. Cover is stained and flaky at the top, with a split bottom seam held with clear tape.)

Milt Jackson (Modern Jazz Quartet)First Q (aka Modern Jazz Quartet) ... LP
Savoy, 1951/1952. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Some of the earliest material ever recorded by the Modern Jazz Quartet – early 50s sides that were originally issued as 78rpm singles! Some of the material was first released under the name of the Milt Jackson Quartet – but featured the lineup of Jackson on vibes, John Lewis piano, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonBlue Gator ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Good+ ... $5.99
A massive early Prestige set from tenorist Willis Jackson – and just the kind of record that set him firmly in the soul jazz camp for the 60s! By the time of the set, Jackson had already won plenty of fame for his R&B-tinged work – but here, he stretches out a bit more, and really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonBoss Shoutin' ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $24.99
Killer work from Gator! The album was recorded during his prime mid-60s period – when it seemed like he just couldn't miss, and when he was working with a great group that included Carl Wilson on organ and Pat Azzara on guitar. The tracks on this one are long, with a great rolling McDuff-ish ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Willis JacksonCool Grits (aka Please Mr Jackson) ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good- ... $19.99
Smoking tenor work from the legendary Willis Jackson – and a key record in Jackson's transition from 50s R&B to 60s soul jazz! Willis gets some great help on the session from Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – both of whom craft some rootsy grooves that further ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonGood Life ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good ... $33.99
A sweet soul jazz burner from Willis Jackson – one that features his combo with Pat Martino on guitar and Carl Wilson on organ, as well as some great trumpet lines form Frank Robinson – shimmering nicely over the top of the tunes!

Willis JacksonGrease 'N' Gravy ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Very Good ... $29.99
Great work from our favorite period in Willis Jackson's career – really hard-burning material that helped set a new standard for the organ/tenor sound in soul jazz! The combo here is one of Jackson's best – with Carl Wilson on organ and Pat Martino (billed as Azzara) on guitar, really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonIn the Alley ... LP
Muse, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Smooth and mellow 70s funk from Willis Jackson – a record that still has him working with funky stalwarts from earlier years, but which has a more 70s-influenced kind of groove! There's actually a nice dose of older soul jazz lurking underneath a few of the tracks – making for a record ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonJackson's Action ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $12.99
Lots and lots of action here – a stone cooker from tenorist Willis Jackson, who always seems to burn even stronger than usual in concert performance! The group is raw, rough, and plenty swinging – the great Pat Martino on guitar, Carl Wilson on organ, and Joe Hadrick on drums – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Purple label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch & a name in marker on both sides.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Willis JacksonThunderbird ... LP
Prestige, 1962. Very Good ... $24.99
A massive groover – and a set that rumbles as much as you might guess from the title! The album's got Willis Jackson blowing in a very open, loud tenor tone – working with an unusual group that features Freddie Roach on organ, and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – the former a hip, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ahmad JamalAhmad Jamal – The Ahmad Jamal Trio Volume IV ... LP
Argo, 1958. Very Good- ... $3.99
Magical early work from Ahmad Jamal – a scintillating blend of piano, percussion, and bass – with a sound that was incredibly fresh at the time, and which still sounds pretty much so to our ears! The album crackles with imagination and rhythm – really hitting on all burners ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some seam splitting and white paint flecks on front.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ahmad JamalAhmad Jamal '73 ... LP
20th Century, 1973. Very Good ... $19.99
Amazing stuff from Ahmad Jamal – one of his greatest albums ever, and the kind of Fender Rhodes classic that got passed over in the history books, but which is finally getting some appreciation these days! Ahamad's in a very different mode than his Cadet/Argo years – using the mellow ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
