Argo, 1963. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Groovy little record that has this funky tenor giant playing a bunch of tracks with a Frenchy feel to them.

JJ JohnsonConcepts In Blue ... LP
Pablo, 1981. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A slightly larger group, which gives Johnson a chance to show off his arranging skills – but a set that also leaves plenty of room for solos too!

JJ JohnsonDial J J 5 ... LP
Columbia, 1957. Very Good ... $6.99
One of JJ's best from the late 50s – a tightly crackling hardbop set, recorded very much in the manner of his classic JJ Inc album! The sound here is a bit more compact overall – with some shorter tracks that really allow Johnson to display his keen sense of economy on his horn, while ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

JJ JohnsonJ Is For Jazz ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Nicely sharp sounds from the great JJ Johnson – a set that has the trombonist really honing his edge on a host of tight, short tracks – with a vibe that almost recalls his initial bop recordings on Blue Note and Prestige! The style here is a bit more sophisticated – definitely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing with a deep groove. Cover has a split top seam, mostly split bottom seam, and some pen and highlighter on back.)

JJ JohnsonJazz South Pacific ... LP
Regent, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $11.99
Although this looks like it should be a hard bop version of tracks from the hit musical, it's actually just a swinging set of jazz featuring JJ Johnson on trombone, Howard McGhee on trumpet, and Rudy Williams on tenor. Short tracks with tight solos, and mostly swing standards as the song list, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original green label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some seam splitting.)

JJ JohnsonJJ Inc ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Very Good ... $9.99
JJ Johnson's greatest album – without a doubt! This gem of a session was recorded in 1960 in New York, with an incredibly hip sextet that includes Cedar Walton, Clifford Jordan, and Freddie Hubbard. The tracks are all long, hip, and very much in a Blue Note soul jazz mode – very ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

JJ JohnsonLooking Back ... LP
Prestige, 1949/1954. Very Good- ... $8.99
A 12" album that combines sides that JJ Johnson previously issued on Prestige – some as 78rpm singles, some as 10" LP material – all of it very top-level bop modern work from Johnson's first stretch on the scene! There's a sharpness here that really sets JJ apart from other ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing. Cover has some wear and splitting in the bottom seam.)

Columbia, Early 50s. Very Good ... $12.99

Osie JohnsonHappy Jazz Of Osie Johnson ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good- ... $14.99
Osie Johnson looks a bit blurry on the cover, but the music on the record is razor-sharp – a great demonstration not only of Johnson's skill on the drums, but also his rare talents as a leader! Osie graced countless top-shelf sessions in the 50s, but only got a rare few chances to work up ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A great record by one of our favorite trumpet players – and one of those albums on Prestige that are darn hard to track down!

Elvin JonesGenesis ... LP
Blue Note, 1971. Very Good- ... $6.99
Elvin Jones rose to fame in the company of one of the greatest saxophone players ever – the mighty John Coltrane – and his post-Coltrane work like this really continues a keen respect for the role of the reeds in jazz – and really does a lot to push it forward as well! There's a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin JonesMr Jones ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A overlooked gem in Elvin Jones' Blue Note career – and an album that's virtually the blueprint for the Stone Alliance sound forged later in the decade by bassist Gene Perla and reedman Steve Grossman! Both players are working to full effect on this smoking little set – mixing some of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin JonesPoly-Currents ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The title's a great one for this post-Coltrane cooker from Elvin Jones – as the set really has Elvin exploring some really fresh currents in jazz, with a range of complicated rhythms that really pull the whole session along strongly!

Elvin JonesTime Capsule ... LP
Vanguard, 1977. Very Good+ ... $12.99
A late 70s side from Elvin, and he's still playing with an energy and fluidity that betrays his talent at making complicated polyrhythms sound natural. The band includes the unheralded Chicago alto great Bunky Green, who wrote most of the tunes in the set, as well as Frank Foster, Ryo Kawasaki, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin JonesUltimate Elvin Jones ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
An incredible trio album – not just for the powerful drums of the great Elvin Jones, but also for amazing work on reeds by a young Joe Farrell! Farrell's in his pre-CTI years here, and really lets loose in the space of the album's open setting – a trio that just features Jones on drums ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $59.99
Heavy Sounds, indeed – a beautiful little set of dark-edged soul jazz from the mid 60s – co-led by bassist Richard Davis and drummer Elvin Jones!
