Sam RiversColours ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1983. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Colours is right – as the sound here is rich in complicated tones, the sort you might not be likely to hear on other albums by Sam Rivers – played by a very unique all-horn lineup! Although Sam got increasingly free in his smaller group recordings of the late 70s, this early 80s date ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sam RiversCrystals ... LP
Impulse, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
One of Sam Rivers' most striking albums for Impulse, a record that has him leading a fairly large group – working in an "orchestral context", as the notes on the cover say, but not really a jazz orchestra – more of a freewheeling avant ensemble, in the tradition of work by ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear, a cut corner, and small cutout hole.)
Also available Crystals (LP sleeve edition) ... CD 13.99

Sam RiversNew Conception ... LP
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $39.99
A mindblowing moment from the young Sam Rivers – and definitely a set that warrants the "new conception" of the title! Unlike some of Rivers' other material of the time, which often featured original inventive compositions, this set's based around classic standards – but all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty/UA pressing, with Van Gelder stamp.)

✨✧ Sam RiversSizzle ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1976. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A different record for Rivers – especially when you compare it to the rest of his early 70s output! Rivers' own playing is still very similar to other records – in that he's blowing his head off on tenor, soprano, and flute – but the backing's by a pretty fierce rhythm combo that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Freddie RoachMo' Greens Please ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Near Mint- ... $39.99
One of the raunchiest albums ever cut by organist Freddie Roach – not as high-reaching as some of his later work, but with lots of short tracks that groove with a tight jukebox organ/tenor approach! The band is a strong one – with Conrad Lester on tenor, Eddie Wright on guitar ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty/UA pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Max RoachConversation ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
This is a retitled 2nd pressing of the album Deeds Not Words – which is a classic Max Roach session with Booker Little, George Coleman, Art Davis, and Ray Draper. The album's got 2 great originals by Bill Lee – "Jodie's Cha Cha" and "Deeds, Not Words" – plus ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label Orpheum Productions pressing. Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Max RoachDrums Unlimited ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
The drums are certainly unlimited here – and the album's a really unique one, in that it shows Max Roach in 2 different settings – one with a group, and one that's simply solo! One batch of tracks has Max in the company of a tight group of soul jazz players like Freddie Hubbard, Roland ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red and green label Rockerfeller pressing.)
Also available Drums Unlimited ... CD 13.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Max RoachFeaturing The Legendary Hasaan ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good ... $24.99
A very unusual album from Max Roach – and one that continues his great 50s trend of seeking out some of the freshest players in jazz! The set's a rare trio outing for Max – and it features some incredible piano work by a musician named Hasaan – a player we only know from this set ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green Broadway label pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Din-Ka Street". Cover has a cutout notch.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Max RoachLoadstar ... LP
Horo (Italy), Late 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $59.99
An amazing album – one of our favorite records ever from drummer Max Roach, and a set that also features some of the best 70s work by tenorist Billy Harper too! The session's a unique date done for the Horo label – and soars even farther than other Horo classics from the time – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy Japanese pressing!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Max RoachMax Roach Quartet – Live In Tokyo Vol 1 ... LP
Denon (Japan), 1977. Near Mint- ... $33.99
Beautiful sounds from the ultra-hip Max Roach Quartet of the mid 70s – a lineup that features Billy Harper on tenor, Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet, and Reggie Workman on bass! Tracks are long – very much in the Harper style of the time – and titles include "It's Time", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Max RoachMax Roach With The Boston Percussion Ensemble ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $3.99
One of Max's most experimental albums from the 50s – a set of serious compositional works performed in conjunction with the Boston Percussion Ensemble. The feel is very much in the mode of 20th century classical work, such as the recordings in the 60s by the Percussions Of Strasbourg – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Max Roach & Clifford BrownBest Of Max Roach & Clifford Brown In Concert! ... LP
GNP, 1954. Very Good+ ... $19.99
It's hard to overstate the influence of Max Roach and Clifford Brown on the west coast scene of the 50s – as the two players helped draw out the bop sound of LA that was quickly getting lost in the cool jazz shuffle of the time, and gave it a strength and focus that not only made the group ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Max Roach & Clifford BrownDaahoud ... LP
Mainstream, 1956. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
Previously unreleased work from the legendary group of Clifford Brown and Max Roach – recorded back in the 50s, when Mainstream producer Bob Shad was working on the Brown/Roach dates for Mercury – but not issued until this set in the 70s, when Shad had his own label! The music here is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a Roulette sticker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Max Roach & Stan LevyDrummin' The Blues ... LP
Liberty, 1957. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Stan and Max are about as unlikely a pair as you could imagine – both jazz drummers, but one with a cooler, more laidback sound (Levy), the other with a harder, more full-on and bop driven approach (Roach). This set features each drummer alternating track to track – supporting a core ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 60s pressing – with deep groove, and label that is black on one side, and has a rainbow wave of colors on the other. Cover has some light wear and some light scratches too.)

✨✧ Max Roach with Billy HarperLift Every Voice and Sing ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A beautiful blend of jazz, voices, and soul – a landmark record in Max Roach's vocal experimental tradition, and a fitting companion piece to Billy Harper's classic Capra Black album – an equally soulful blend of styles! Like Capra Black, this set features Harper's sharp and soulful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Perry RobinsonFunk Dumpling (80s pressing) ... LP
Savoy, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the excellent sessions of avant garde jazz recorded by Savoy in the 60's, and one of the few chances to hear clarinetist Perry Robinson from the time apart from his classic recording with Henry Grimes' trio on ESP. Grimes is on this album as well, and the rest of the group includes Paul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(80s reissue pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Perry Robinson/Nana Vasconcelos/Badal RoyKundalini ... LP
Improvising Artists Inc, 1978. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of the most interesting albums we've ever heard from clarinetist Perry Robinson – recorded with help from two master percussionists, in a style that makes for a very global groove! The set features Robinson blowing in snakey, almost exotic lines – with backing on tablas from Badal ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Betty RocheTake The A Train (2nd cover) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of the few small group sessions from vocalist Betty Roche – a singer who was known for her work with Duke Ellington, but who sounds even better in this setting! Betty's got a style that's warmly raspy – a bit more edge than some of the cooler vocalists on the Bethlehem label at the ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
