Eddie JeffersonLetter From Home ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... $11.99
The beginning of a whole new chapter of greatness for singer Eddie Jefferson – a record that took his older style of putting words to jazz solos, and updated it nicely for a new generation in the 60s! Eddie's got a rootsy look on the cover, but the sound here is snappingly hip and ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Bill Grauer pressing with microphone logo. Back cover has a DJ stamp & a name in pen.)

Leroy JenkinsLegend Of Ai Glatson ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1978. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Lots of angular moments here – a relatively free, improvised session led by Leroy Jenkins on violin, and featuring work by Andrew Cyrille on percussion and Anthony Davis on piano! The record explodes with energy from the start – quite different than some of Jenkins' more sonically-orien ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sven-Ake JohanssonSchlingerland/Dynamische Schlingerland (SAJ) ... LP
FMP (Germany), 1972. Near Mint- ... $119.99
A seminal album of solo drum tracks from 1972 – created and performed by Sven-Ake Johansson, a key figure in the European improv scene of the late 60s and early 70s. Johansson plays only a standard drum kit – but his work here is incredible, pushing past earlier work of the same nature ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(2nd pressing on SAJ.)

Budd JohnsonYa Ya (Argo) ... LP
Argo, 1964. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the most soulful sessions ever cut by tenorist Budd Johnson – recorded with a cool combo that features Al Williams on some smoking Hammond – plus bass and drums. Lots of tracks are originals – and titles include the jazz dance groover "Ya Ya" – plus "Ex ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dick JohnsonMusic For Swinging Moderns ... LP
EmArcy, 1956. Very Good- ... $8.99
One of the few albums ever recorded by one of our favorite alto players of the 50s! Dick Johnson is a real lost talent – a sharp-edge player who came from the same Boston scene as Charlie Mariano, and who had a similarly soulful approach! His tone is as sharp as that of Lee Konitz, but he ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Harold Johnson SextetEverybody Loves A Winner ... LP
Revue, 1968. Very Good ... $19.99
A rare gem from the Harold Johnson Sextet – a tight little west coast combo in the mid-sixties, made up of a bunch of young soul jazz players from L.A. who played with a surprising amount of fire and inspiration for their young age! Harold plays piano, and leads the group through some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

JJ JohnsonEminent Jay Jay Johnson Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good+ ... $19.99
First volume of the two LP set that compiled JJ's bop trombone sides for Blue Note. Great stuff, and arguably among some of his best work. The arrangements are tight, and JJ's in the company of great rhythm players like Kenny Clarke, Horace Silver, and Paul Chambers, who make the sessions really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JJ JohnsonTrombone & Voices ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Very Good ... $5.99
A surprisingly wonderful album – one that pits JJ's trombone against a wash of voices conducted by Frank DeVol! The vocal group's a relatively small one, and they sing in a nice breezy jazzy style on most cuts – hipper than usual for DeVol, with a swinging style that mixes male and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Carmell JonesRemarkable Carmell Jones ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Remarkable Carmell Jones, indeed – and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by this up-and-coming force on the LA scene at the start of the 60s! Jones was a player who really showcased something new on the west at the time – a move away from cool jazz, and the start of a deeper, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin JonesUltimate Elvin Jones ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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

✨✧ Jonah JonesAlong Came Jonah ... LP
Motown, 1969. Very Good ... $0.99
The trumpet of Jonah Jones gets a bit of a revival on this late 60s set cut for Motown – one that features Jonah punching it up over the top of some pretty standard Motown arrangements of pop and soul tunes. The record features a nice little funky version of "The End Of Our Road", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
