Michael Gregory JacksonClarity ... LP
Bija, 1976. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An overlooked early session from multi-instrumentalist Michael Gregory Jackson, recording here with a trio of great horn players in a wonderfully sensitive sound! The record's approach is a perfect illustration of the maturity on the New York avant scene in the late 70s – a real change from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonBig Band Bags (Big Bags/For Someone I Love – Milt Jackson & Big Brass) ... LP
Riverside/Milestone, 1962. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
Two excellent early 60s sides from Bags, both casting him in a larger setting than the smaller, tighter ensembles he typically worked in. On Big Bags Jackson takes on a set of 10 standards (mostly) with some help from Tadd Dameron and Ernie Wilkins on larger group arrangements! Milt's the primary ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonMilt Jackson At The Museum Of Modern Art ... LP
Limelight, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
One of the hippest Milt Jackson albums of the 60s – a set that definitely lives up to its Museum Of Modern Art setting! The performance is one of the most famous from that museum's well-remembered series of 60s jazz concerts – and it features Milt Jackson's quintet really stretching ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing in the extravagant gatefold cover, with edge wear, a split top seam, and some pen on back.)

Milt JacksonStatements ... LP
Impulse, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A great statement from vibist Milt Jackson – one of his key solo sessions in a great 60s run of recordings away from the Modern Jazz Quartet! Like the classics that followed this one, the vibe is much more soulful than any of Milt's records with the MJQ – kind of an extension of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label mono pressing. Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt Jackson & Ray BrownThat's The Way It Is ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
At the end of the 60s, Milt Jackson and Ray Brown cut some very groovy records together – teamed up in a great pairing of styles that pushed both of them way past the more standard sounds of earlier years! This album's one of the best of the bunch – as it features pianist Monty ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some gloss bubbles.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt Jackson & Sonny StittLoose Walk ... LP
Palcoscenico (Italy), 1979. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An obscure little live set – recorded at the end of the 70s, at a time that makes it some of Stitt's last work on record. The format is straight and boppish – with some lyrical touches, and a strong open solo mode that goes well with the live setting. Stitt seems to dominate a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Shannon JacksonNasty ... LP
Moers (Germany), 1981. Very Good+ ... $16.99
One of Shannon Jackson's jaunty jazz outings from the early 80's, with a sound that's vaguely similar to some of Ornette's stuff from the same time. The group includes Charles Brackeen, Byard Lancaster, Melvin Gibbs, and Vernon Reid – and has a very Black Rock sound to it. Tracks include ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light creases and a small mark from sticker removal.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonBar Wars ... LP
Muse, 1977. Very Good ... $2.99
The title's a bit hokey – an obvious play on the Star Wars film that was running in theaters at the time of the record – but the sound is classic Willis Jackson at his finest, recorded in a style that's right up there with his best 60s work for Prestige! The group here is a quintet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonCool Gator ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
Well, Jackson's anything but "cool" as a player – and this album sets his hard wailing tenor in great company with Brother Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar. The sound is in that gutbuckety early 60s soul jazz style that was showing up on a number of Prestige ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Illinois JacquetGo Power! ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Very Good ... $5.99
Go Power indeed – as the album's a really stripped down groover, and one that has the tenor of Illinois Jacquet working in spare trio formation with Milt Bucker on Hammond and Alan Dawson on drums! The record's got a sound that's even earthier than some of Jacquet's other work for Argo ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label stereo pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Illinois JacquetJazz Moods ... LP
Clef/Verve, Early 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
One of Jacquet's most fantastic albums for Norman Granz. Nicely swinging numbers alternate with beautifully laid back ballads, with Jacquet's rich tone cutting across the full orchestral backing throughout. Tight crisp playing on mostly shorter cuts, featuring mostly jumping Jacquet originals. 11 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has a split top seam, a sticker on one corner, and some red marker on back.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Allan JaffeSoundscape ... LP
Kromel, 1978. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A surprisingly great record – with work by Gerry Hemmingway and Pheeroan Ak Laff on drums, Anthony Davis on piano, Ray Anderson on trombone, and James Newton on flute. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ahmad JamalAll Of You ... LP
Argo, 1961. Very Good ... $6.99
A live set – one of many fine ones that Jamal recorded for Argo during the early 60s – recorded at his own Alhambra Club in Chicago, with the classic trio that included Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums. Tracks are light and lively – and very Jamal – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Argo pressing. Cover has some wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ahmad JamalHappy Moods ... LP
Argo, 1960. Very Good- ... $3.99
A sprightly set from the Ahmad Jamal Trio – but also a record that's not as brightly colored as you might guess from the title, thanks to a nice undercurrent of darkness in the mix! Jamal's piano work is often nicely punctuated – perhaps living up to the "happy moods" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Argo pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ahmad JamalJamal Plays Jamal ... LP
20th Century, 1974. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Fantastic 70s work by Ahmad Jamal – the kind of record you look for for years, and are always disappointed when you end up buying a more straight-ahead session! The album features Jamal on both Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano – working in a trio format, plus percussion, with some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ahmad JamalPiano Scene Of Ahmad Jamal ... LP
Epic, Late 50s. Very Good ... $7.99
Early work by Jamal, recorded back when he was really turning heads with his sophisticated approach to the piano. The album's all trio material – played in Jamal's piano/bass/guitar drumless format, which leaves the notes just floating in air, swirling around in smoky clouds of imagination. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ahmad JamalRossiter Road ... LP
Atlantic, 1986. Very Good ... $3.99
One of Ahmad Jamal's great mid 80s sets for Atlantic Records – recorded in a spacious acoustic mode that has Jamal crafting beautiful tones on the Steinway, yet never falling into overindulgence! The record's got a surprisingly rhythmic quality – as the drums of Herlin Riley and bass ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Labels have some pen.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ahmad JamalSteppin Out With A Dream ... LP
20th Century, 1976. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Unlike Ahmad's other LPs for 20th Century, this one's a fairly straight set of tracks, with (mostly) acoustic piano (although he does play Fender Rhodes on one track). He's backed by a nice combo that features Calvin Keys on guitar, Frank Gant on drums, John Hurd on bass, and Selden Newton on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
