John La Porta QuartetMost Minor ... LP
Everest, 1958. Very Good+ ... $28.99
Great work by a player we've always loved – but who rarely gets his due! John LaPorta had one of the sharpest altos of the 50's, but for some reason, his talents were not nearly as recognized as those of similar players like Lee Konitz and Charlie Mariano. His earlier work with Mingus has ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Larkin & the DelegatesDon't Stop ... LP
World Pacific/Liberty, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
Tight funky organ work from Billy Larkin and his hard-swingin Delegates combo! This stuff was the west coast equivalent of New Jersey organ combos – and you can bet your bippy that Billy & Co were blasting loud out of every jukebox on Central Ave during the 60s. This album's still got ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove pressing. Cover has some wear and a half split top seam. Label has some marker.)

Yusef LateefGentle Giant ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the greatest Yusef Lateef albums on Atlantic Records – and that's saying a lot, given the high level of quality he was hitting at the label! The album's a perfect blend of the newly-funky Lateef style with some hipper, more sophisticated touches – a mode that hints at his bigger- ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Yusef LateefLive At Pep's ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... $19.99
One of Yusef Lateef's most fantastic records, and an album that grooves in a way that few of his other ones do. Recorded live in 1964, this material was part of the same session that comprised the classic Club Date LP, which included the track "Brother John" (not on this album). This ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label stereo pressing, with Van Gelder/Stereo stamp. Cover has wear on the top seam.)

Latin Percussion Ventures, 1980. Near Mint- ... $36.99
The Latin Percussion posse hits the Montreux Jazz Festival – in a sweet little set that offers up a live take on the label's hard-hitting sound!

✨✧ Azar LawrenceBridge Into The New Age ... LP
Prestige, 1974. Very Good ... $24.99
A wicked set from reedman Azar Lawrence – one of the few albums issued under his own name, and a great example of the waves he was making on the 70s west coast scene! There's a depth here that goes beyond most of the other Fantasy Records sessions of the time – a sound that would be ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hubert LawsChicago Theme ... LP
CTI, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
One of Hubert Laws' funkiest records for CTI – recorded with a full group funky style that's plenty darn great, and a lot harder-hitting than some of Hubert's more laidback sessions for the label! Arrangements are by Bob James and Laws – working here with a large batch of players who ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hubert LawsLaws Of Jazz ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Massive early work from Hubert Laws – and a set that really shows some more the more Latin and soul sides of his talents! Tracks here have a tight punch throughout – with some great New York 60s rhythms that feature a young Chick (then called "Armando") Corea on piano, then a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green label pressing.)

Hubert LawsMorning Star ... LP
CTI, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
One of the most sublime Hubert Laws albums for CTI – a set that features his incredibly soulful flute work floating over these beautiful large arrangements by Don Sebesky – all ticked by some sweet electric piano from Bob James! The sound is perfect – that balance of soul and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hubert LawsThen There Was Light Vol 1 (aka In The Beginning) ... LP
CTI, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
Moody work from one of the most groundbreaking flute players of the 70s – and a real standout in the legendary catalot of CTI Records!

Ronnie LawsPressure Sensitive ... LP
Blue Note, 1975. Very Good- ... $2.99
Classic bit of 70's fusion, played by Ronnie on tenor and flute, and with a group that includes some excellent keyboard work by Joe Sample. The highlight of the record is the big sample cut "Tidal Wave", but it also includes the great groover "Always There", which was covered a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sam LazarPlayback ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the 3 albums that organist Sam Lazar made for Argo, and the one that's probably his best! The obscure tenor player Miller Brisker is on the session, and he has a really unique approach to playing, with lots of unique twists, that spurs Lazar onto new heights of playing. Lazar wrote most of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Teal label Argo pressing with the deep groove.)

LeadersUnforseen Blessings ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1989. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the strongest albums from the Leaders sextet – an ensemble that features 6 of America's best left-of-center players of the time – all of them leaders of their own groups, putting aside ego to come together beautifully here! The set features Lester Bowie on trumpet, Arthur Blythe ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is lightly stained on the bottom half, with light waviness and a delaminated spot on the opening.)

Peggy Lee & George ShearingBeauty And The Beat (1959 DJ Convention Souvenir) ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A very nice small combo album from Peggy Lee – singing here with live backings by the George Shearing Quintet, in a style that's very different from a lot of her other work for Capitol! The set's got a slight Latin feel, thanks to George's mix of percussion, vibes, piano, and guitar – ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice box – with a photo of Peggy Lee, another of George Shearing, a Capitol promo sheet, and a "letter" from the pair! Box has light surface wear.)

Michel LegrandMichel Legrand Recorded Live At Jimmy's ... LP
RCA, 1975. Sealed ... $4.99
One of a few key efforts done by Michel Legrand for RCA in the 70s – sessions that stand out as some of his best jazz work from the decade, and which present Legrand in unfettered brilliance, both as a player and arranger! This live date still has the original compositions and sense of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap is cracked on the opening, and is mostly torn on back. Cover has a pormo imprint and a name in pen on back.)

Open (France), 1960/Late 80s. Very Good+ (reissue)... $6.99
Excellent reissue of this amazing album by the legendary French vocal group Les Double Six.

Les Jazz ModesLes Jazz Modes ... LP
Dawn, 1956. Near Mint- ... $28.99
A haunting bit of jazz by one of the most unique groups in the business. Charlie Rouse's tenor is great, and sounds quite different than on his recordings with Monk. Gildo Mahones plays piano, and he really hits some nice moody lines that don't ever show up on his records with Lambert, Hendricks, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with obi! Back of obi has a light crinkle, and cover has some very light aging – but this is a great copy overall.)

A cool Nato session from pianist Denis Levaillant – with Tony Coe on saxes, Kenny Wheeler on trumpet, Yves Robert on trombone, Barre Phillips on bass, and Pierre Favre on drums! LP, Vinyl record album
