✨✧ Cecil TaylorAir – Featuring Archie Shepp. ... LP
Candid, 1960. Very Good ... $8.99
Cecil Taylor and Archie Shepp – two key modern figures of the 60s, working here together in a seminal session recorded at the start of the decade!

Arista/Freedom, 1975. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Excellent Artista/Freedom reissue that brings together the full set from Cecil's 1962 performance at Cafe Monmartre.

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Creed TaylorPanic - The Son Of Shock ... LP
ABC, 1959. Very Good- ... $16.99
After Shock comes Panic – the sequel to Creed Taylor's previous album for ABC, and like that one, a very weird mix of jazzy backings, odd sound effects, and cool production techniques! The record begins with a familiar core – jazzy instrumentals, of the sort that Taylor was already ... (Now Sound, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Clark TerryColor Changes ... LP
Candid, 1960. Very Good ... $39.99
An excellent little album that's also one of Clark Terry's hippest! The set was recorded as part of the monumental Candid catalog in the early 60s – and it's got an edgey quality that we don't normally hear in Terry's work. At some level, he's working in a mode picked up from his time with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(White label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Clark TerrySwahili (aka Clark Terry) ... LP
EmArcy/Trip, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
A stunner – and one of Clark Terry's finest moments ever! The record has a rawness and groove that you'd hardly expect from his later albums – no surprise, though, considering that it was cut during that really hip time at Emarcy, when the label was working in a mode that was darker ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 70s pressing. Cover has a cut corner and light surface wear.)

Joe ThomasFeelin's From Within ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
The Ebony Godfather is grooving here with a set of fuller backings – sweet clubby funk, arranged and conducted by Brad Baker (of B Baker Chocolate Company fame) – all as a showcase for Joe's sweet work on flute and tenor sax! There's a fair bit of keyboards on the tunes – played ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a DJ sticker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Joe ThomasHere I Come ... LP
LC, 1977. Good Gatefold ... $4.99
One of Joe's sweeter and smoother sessions of the 70s – a record that takes the core horn sound of his Ebony Godfather years, and fuses it with some larger backings directed by Brad Baker (of B Baker Chocolate Company fame!) The sound actually works well for Joe – and has him playing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has moderate wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Leon ThomasBlues & The Soulful Truth ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
Leon Thomas takes his vocals to new heights – moving past the straight spiritual jazz modes of his work with Pharoah Sanders, to embrace a whole host of new styles too! There's a slight trace of the blues promised in the title, but always inflected through a more soulful approach overall ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Don ThompsonCountry Place ... LP
PM, 1976. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A wonderful little record – and one with a sound that's as evocative and lyrical as its title and cover image! Don Thompson's a player we mostly know for piano work on the Canadian scene – but here, he also handles vibes in a really wonderful way – often moving forward with this ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light surface wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lucky ThompsonHappy Days Are Here Again ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good ... $16.99
An overlooked gem from Lucky Thompson's mid 60s years – that wonderful time when he'd returned to the fold even stronger than ever – filled with hip new musical ideas, and a great command for the soprano sax! This set's got Lucky working on both soprano and tenor, both of which are ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a water stain in one bottom corner – worse on back than front.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Lucky ThompsonLucky Thompson Featuring Oscar Pettiford Vol 2 ... LP
ABC, Mid 50s. Good ... $8.99
One of Lucky Thompson's best American albums of the 50s – a killer set that features him and Oscar Pettiford working in both quintet and trio formats! The quintet sides add in Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, Don Abney on piano, and Osie Johnson on bass – all grooving in a tight sort of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Clifford ThorntonKetchaoua ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
An early gem from the great Clifford Thornton – maybe his best-known album over the years, thanks to its placement on the post-68 series of French free jazz releases on the BYG/Actuel label – but a set that's got a much more New York vibe overall, and stands as a key precursor to so ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Vinyl has a small press flaw that clicks a bit on "Speak With Your Echo". Cover has about an inch of fraying on the opening.)
Also available Ketchaoua ... LP 9.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Three SoundsBlack Orchid ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. Good ... $8.99
Maybe the most evocative title of all the Three Sounds albums of the 60s – and one that really gets at the dark beauty of the entire record! By the time of this release (the group's 7th for Blue Note), Gene Harris and the trio had really come into their own – and were moving past ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(New York mono pressing, with Van Gelder Stereo stamps and ear. Vinyl has some heavy marks that click on side 2, tracks 1-3.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Three SoundsBottoms Up! ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. Very Good ... $14.99
The bottom is certainly "up" on this one – as the Three Sounds groove things from the ground up, taking soul jazz piano to the next level with an approach that quickly made them one of the most popular Blue Note acts of the early 60s! Gene Harris leads the group on piano – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty/UA pressing. Cover has a partially split top seam.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Three SoundsColdwater Flat ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
A brilliant pairing of the Three Sounds trio with the larger arrangements of reedman Oliver Nelson – easily one of the most soulful bandleaders of the 60s, and a talent who really helps open up the trio's groove! The piano of Gene Harris is nice and sharp – played with a soulful sock ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty pressing. Cover has some wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art

Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
With a sound like this, these guys have gotta be Feelin Good! The album's one of the first few Blue Notes by Gene Harris and his mighty Three Sounds combo – and is done in the group's very successful blend of soul jazz and piano trio musing – a key shift in styles from the 50s to the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
