Dizzy GillespieGillespiana ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
A great burner from Diz – and one that features a large group, long tracks, and some stellar early work from Lalo Schifrin! Schifrin was in Diz's group at the time, playing piano and contributing fantastic Latin-tinged arrangements that gave the band a whole new life. Other players on this ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dizzy GillespieGreatest Trumpet Of Them All ... LP
Verve, 1960. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the strongest sides to feature Diz's mid 50s format – a larger group than usual, an octet, with a more tightly arranged style that showed that he continued to develop as an artist long after the days of his early bop sides. The album's also noteworthy for demonstrating Dizzy's great ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc Stereophonic pressing with deep groove. Cover has moderate wear, a split top & bottom seam.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dizzy GillespieIt's My Way ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
A weird batch of groovy tracks from Diz – more of a pop soul jazz instrumental set than a straight jazz one, recorded in 1969 with arrangements by Jimmy Mundy, who conducts a group with Paul Griffin, Billy Butler, and Jerome Richardson. As usual, Dizzy rises to any occasion – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieMusical Safari ... LP
Booman, 1961/1980s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Later issue of a crack live set that was recorded in 1961, when Dizzy had a young Lalo Schifrin in his group, playing the piano, and providing these great arrangements that broke Dizzy out of the be bop bag, and into a more Afro Latin groove. Leo Wright's on alto and flute, and the set list ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieNew Continent ... LP
Limelight, 1962. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A wickedly great album from Dizzy Gillespie – one of his most striking sessions of the early 60s, and a perfect blend of his Latin and modern modes! The album features an extended suite – composed and arranged by Lalo Schifrin, who'd just begun working with Dizzy at the time, and who ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove pressing in the extravagant gatefold cover.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dizzy GillespiePortrait Of Jenny ... LP
Perception, 1971. Very Good ... $16.99
A sweet slow and groovy funk LP recorded by Dizzy for the Perception label! The record is similar to his other LPs from the time in that it's got a cool electric feel that you don't really associate with Diz. The whole album has a sly sweet funky sound that's part CTI/part Latin-tinged Dizzy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear and seam splitting.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dizzy GillespieSwing Low, Sweet Cadillac ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $19.99
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz! The record takes off from the soulful/modal mood of the early 60s groups with Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and features a young Mike Longo crafting some fantastic lines on piano, stretched out over tight rhythms on electric bass and drums, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dizzy Gillespie with Sonny Rollins & Sonny StittDuets ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $11.99
One of the greatest jam session records on Verve! Although some of the label's "big horn talent" albums tended to be a bit snoozy, this one crackles with energy, and features three different classes of boppers working together perfectly on long, lively tracks with Ray Bryant on piano, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dizzy Gillespie, Lee Konitz, Dave Lambert, et al3/27/65 – Charlie Parker 10th Memorial Concert ... LP
Limelight, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Way more than the simple Charlie Parker tribute promised in the title! For starters, the set's got two of the best cuts by Gillespie's mid 60s group with James Moody – "Um-Hmmm" and "Groovin High" – both of which have Moody playing in an incredibly unbridled tone ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie/Django ReinhardtJazz From Paris ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $24.99
Some obscure work – and nice! We really dig side one of this LP – as it's got Diz in one of his rare "with strings" sessions, recorded here with backings by the Paris Opera-Comique Orchestra, on tunes that include "Night & Day", "The Man I Love", " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy GiuffreAd Lib ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
A seminal middle period album from Jimmy – one recorded right before he really opened it up, but still with more modern touches than some of his earlier work! The group's a quartet – with the great Lawrence Marable on drums, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Red Mitchell on bass – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear. Vinyl plays with light crackles on start of "The Boy Next Door", but the rest is great!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jimmy GiuffreJimmy Giuffre 3 ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good- ... $9.99
Groundbreaking trio work from the great Jimmy Giuffre – an album that cut loose both the piano and the drums – in a way that took Gerry Mulligan's earlier rhythm-less experiments with jazz, and pushed them one degree further! The group on the session features Giuffre on clarinet, tenor ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover has a half split top seam.)

✨✧ Jimmy GiuffreJimmy Giuffre Clarinet (Atlantic Jazzlore pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Beautiful work from Jimmy Giuffre – and a key album in the development of his spare sound of the late 50s! The record features Jimmy on clarinet – as you'd guess by the title – but this is no hokey set of Benny Goodman or Buddy DeFranco-type tunes. Instead, Giuffre's using the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy GiuffreMusic Man ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $4.99
The Music Man, made different – thanks to very fresh arrangements from Jimmy Giuffre – heard here in one of his few large group sessions for Atlantic Records! The music is all from the score of the famous show, but Giuffre really reworks things with some sharp modern jazz edges – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jimmy GiuffreTangents In Jazz ... LP
Capitol, 1955. Very Good ... $7.99
One of Jimmy Giuffre's excellent early LPs for Capitol, and a nice blend of west coast styles with more modernist experimentation. Here, Giuffre begins his experiments in jazz without a "non-pulsating beat", that is, jazz without snapping cymbal, walking bass, or pounding piano to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label pressing. Cover has pieces of clear tape on the seams.)
