✨✧ Grant GreenGreen Blues ... LP
Muse, 1961/Late 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
A fantastic record from Grant Green's important early years – originally recorded for the Jazztime label in 1961 (and released under Dave Bailey's name), reissued in this form in the 70's by Muse. The record's got an amazingly sharp quintet lineup that features Green, Bailey, Frank Haynes on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grant GreenIdle Moments ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
A warmly melodic session from Blue Note's greatest guitarist! The sound of the set's as evocative as the title – an idle moment of space between the notes, explored by Green's tight single-note work on guitar – and wonderfully supported by a lineup that includes Joe Henderson, Bobby ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Grant GreenRemembering Grant Green ... LP
Blue Note, 1980. Sealed ... $16.99
Holy cow! This is one of those rare albums that was recorded by Blue Note in the classic days, but which only ever came out in Japan! (Although we have a feeling that this may have finally come out, on CD only, in the US recently.) A very young Grant Green heads a trio that features Wilbur Ware ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grant GreenShades Of Green ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
A stellar album from Grant Green – very different than most of his other work for Blue Note, and a sly electric groover recorded with vibist Billy Wooten! The sound here is a bit more spacious than some of Grant's earlier albums, yet no less funky – thanks to a hip undercurrent of soul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(UA pressing. Cover has seam splitting.)

Burton GreeneOn Tour ... LP
ESP, 1966. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Pretty far out work from pianist Burton Greene – working here on recordings pulled from the famous ESP tour of New York in the mid 60s! The performances feature Greene on piano and piano harp – in trio format with Steve Tintweiss on bass and Shelly Rusten on drums – both of whom ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Burton GreeneVariations On A Coffee Machine ... LP
Kharma, 1977. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Moody 70s work by Greene. The record features one side of solo piano – fairly introspective, and fairly well moderated – on tracks that include "Variations On a Raga", "Naima", and "63rd and Cottage Grove". Side two's a bit better, and features duets with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Al GreyBoss Bone ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good ... $9.99
Soul jazz trombone session, recorded in Chicago, with players like John Young on piano, Leo Blevins on guitar, and Ike Isaacs on bass. The groove is tight and hard, and Grey wrote a lot of catchy originals for the session. Titles include "Tacos & Grits", "Salty Mama", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Argo pressing with deep groove.)

Al GreyGrey's Mood (Black & Blue) ... LP
Black & Blue (France), 1975. Very Good ... $3.99
The mood may be gray, but the sound here is plenty blue – those deep-toned lines that make trombonist Al Grey one of the most deeply-voiced players on his instrument! The set has Al in a nicely laidback setting – a relaxed, soulful approach that's almost similar to the Prestige Records ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Al GreySnap Your Fingers ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good ... $5.99
Really wonderful work from trombonist Al Grey – sounding hipper here than at any other point in his career! One of the great reason for Al's sound here is the presence of tenorist Billy Mitchell – a partner with Al in the Basie band, and a great player who gives just about any session ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Gray label Argo pressing with deep groove.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Al Grey & Jesper ThiloAl Grey & Jesper Thilo Quintet ... LP
Storyville (Switzerland), 1987. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The great Al Grey seems greater than ever here – deeply expressive in the company of tenorist Jesper Thilo, and really hitting those classic moments of phrasing on his trombone that we've loved from his older albums on Chess Records! Grey was strongly in the spotlight at the start of the 60s ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny GriffinBig Soul (Big Soul Band & White Gardenia) ... LP
Riverside/Milestone, 1960. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
One of those ubiquitous Milestone 70s two-fers combining two nice sides from the little giant. The first set is Big Soul Band, a sweet little album from Johnny – quite different than most of his other sessions at the time, as this one features a big band, as the title says – filled ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny GriffinCongregation ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An early killer from Johnny Griffin – a stripped-down quartet session for Blue Note, done in a format that really gave him plenty of room to open up! The rhythm section is a powerful trio led by Sonny Clark on piano, and featuring bassist Paul Chambers alongside the obscure drummer Kenny ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny GriffinDo Nothing 'Til You Hear From Me ... LP
Riverside, 1963. Very Good- ... $34.99
A moodier session than usual for Griff – but in a nice way – and one that's cut with Buddy Montgomery on vibes and piano, and handled in a laidback soul jazz mode that's a refreshing change from some of his sharper hardbop sides! Highlights include the extended original "Slow ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny GriffinIntroducing Johnny Griffin ... LP
Blue Note, 1956. Near Mint- ... $11.99
If you've ever needed a definition of hardbop, this is it! The set's a crack quartet session for Blue Note, recorded in the mid 50s by a young Johnny Griffin – fresh in from Chicago, and playing with tons of fire and loads of imagination! Wynton Kelly's on piano and Max Roach is on drums ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny GriffinJazz A Confronto ... LP
Horo (Italy), 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
One of the most obscure 70s sides by Johnny Griffin – a really warm and wonderful set, recorded in Italy with an Italian rhythm section of Franco D'Andrea on piano, Giovanni Tommaso on bass, and Bruno Biriaco on drums. Tracks are all quite long, but never sloppy – and in a way, Griff ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny GriffinJohnny Griffin (aka JG) ... LP
Argo, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Excellent early work by Johnny Griffin – a rare quartet session recorded in Chicago, with the same lineup (Junior Mance & Wilbur Ware) that appeared with him on Ware's legendary Chicago Scene album! The tracks are straight-ahead quartet hardbop – short, but with great tenor work by ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny GriffinLittle Giant ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good ... $19.99
One of Johnny Griffin's hard blowing LPs as a leader for Jazzland – recorded with a crack lineup that includes Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, Wynton Kelly on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Albert Heath on drums! This is the kind of work that the term "hard ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny GriffinWhite Gardenia ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good ... $14.99
A tribute to Billie Holiday – with Johnny Griffin's tenor fronting some larger backing on strings and brass – but hipper than most efforts of this type, thanks to some great arrangements by Melba Liston and Norman Simmons! The record's a good change from some of Johnny's more full-on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
