Abdullah IbrahimEkaya (Home) ... LP
Ekapa, 1983. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A strong soul jazz session – one in which South African pianist Ibrahim meets up with some New York players like Carlos Ward, Ricky Ford, Charles Davis, Cecil McBee, and Ben Riley. The result is a warm batch of melodic tunes that have the strong spiritual sound of some of the best work on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ IfDouble Diamond ... LP
Metromedia, 1973. Very Good- ... $9.99
One of the best of the funky Brit jazz rock combos from the early 70s – with some super-heavy drumming that's just great, and more than a few funky flute riffs to keep the grooves nice and tasty! Sure, plenty of the album's in a rocking vein – but there's also some great groovers that ... (Rock, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

IfIf 2 ... LP
Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
The sweet second album from If – a Brit jazz-rock combo with a really great sound! The album was produced by Lew Futterman, the talent behind some of Jack McDuff's large-arrangement albums for Blue Note – and Lew seems to bring in a similar ambitious feel to the set that really brings ...

✨✧ Solomon Ilori & His Afro Drum EnsembleAfrican High Life ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good ... $98.99
One of the most roosty albums on Blue Note – and a fairly straight session of African percussion tracks by Solomon Ilori and his Afro Drum Ensemble. Unlike similar albums by Art Blakey, this one lacks any strong sort of jazz component – and really just features fairly straight African ... (Global Grooves, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(New York stereo pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Record has some oxidation on one side, but plays well overall – maybe just some light background on the quieter spots on that side.)

✨✧ IrakereIrakere ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade! The sound here is a lot more focused than on the group's Cuban sessions from previous years – not commercial ... (Latin, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

IrakereIrakere – Seleccion De Exitos Vol 2 1973-1979 ... LP
Areito (Cuba), Mid 70s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Great stuff from this legendary Cuban jazz group – live material, and arguably better than even their studio LPs from the time! All the material in the set was recorded live at different points during the mid 70s – and it's all got a great style that mixes up Latin jazz with electric ...

✨✧ Weldon IrvineWeldon & The Kats ... LP
Luv N' Haight, 1968/1980s/1992. Very Good+ (reissue)... $29.99
Rare work from Weldon Irvine – a selection of tracks recorded as private studio outings, reissued briefly by Luv N Haight in the early 90s, and then only on vinyl! The style here is much more jazz-based than some of Irvine's soul recordings – a mode that's often all instrumental, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(1992 Luv N Haight reissue – long out of print!)

Milt JacksonBe Bop ... LP
Atlantic/East West, 1988. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A surprisingly great record from Milt Jackson – and we're saying that after being plenty darn suspicious about a record titled Be Bop recorded in the late 80s! The set has Jackson returning to the sound of his earliest roots – the boppish material he first cut for Blue Note as a leader ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Be Bop ... CD 9.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Milt JacksonJust The Way It Had to Be ... LP
Impulse/ABC, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
Way nicer than some of Milt's earlier work – and one of the gems he recorded with bassist Ray Brown during the late 60s. The group's got a tight soul jazz stepping groove – with Monty Alexander on piano, comping along right over Ray's warm basslines in a very tasty way. Teddy Edwards ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milt JacksonPlenty, Plenty Soul ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+ ... $26.99
Plenty plenty soul here – as Milt Jackson's moving away from the Modern Jazz Quartet, and working with a great group of players that really expand his sound! The session's a bit like some of Milt's soul jazz work for Riverside and other labels – in that it's got rhythms, timings, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – black label with deep groove – in great shape! Cover is nice, too.)
Also available Plenty, Plenty Soul ... CD 4.99

✨✧ Milt JacksonStatements ... LP
Impulse, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
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
(Green label 70s pressing in a gatefold mono cover, with some surface wear and gloss separation.)

✨✧ Milt JacksonSunflower ... LP
CTI, 1972. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Proof that Milt Jackson was easily the hippest member of the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one of the few who could really open up into different sounds away from that combo! This sweet 70s set for CTI is totally great – a whole new chapter for Jackson's vibes, and a real re-setting of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Non-gatefold pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Milt Jackson & John ColtraneBags & Trane ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Good+ ... $9.99
An incredible collaboration from John Coltrane and Milt Jackson – and one that gives Milt one of his sharpest records ever! The setting is relatively straight – tenor from Coltrane, vibes from Jackson – plus rhythm from Hank Jones on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Connie Kay ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover has some wear. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

Willis JacksonSmoking With Willis ... LP
Cadet, 1965. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great album from Willis Jackson – a real sleeper, and with a very groovy feel! Willis smokes with an organ combo that has Butch Cornell at the keys, and which also features Vince Corrao on guitar and Franklyn Robinson on trumpet. The tracks are a mix of originals and Beatles covers ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label stereo pressing.)

Willis JacksonSoul Grabber ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of our favorite albums ever by Willis Jackson – and in fact one of our favorite soul jazz sides of the 60s! There's a mad groove here that's quite different than any of Jackson's earlier work – freer, looser, and more experimental – handled with a sound that's almost fuller ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has a cutout mark.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonWay We Were ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The soulful sax of Willis Jackson meets the Philly Soul mecca of Sigma Sound – and the result is a surprisingly wonderful album! Willis blows in the lead on all tracks, supported by legendary Sigma players – and the sound is a lush and sweetly soulful one, almost an instrumental ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

Illinois JacquetIllinois Jacquet & His Tenor Sax ... LP
Aladdin, Late 40s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
An excellent LP collection of Jacquet's early work for the Aladdin label – hard-grooving numbers cut on the heels of his fame with the Lionel Hampton group, a mixture of swing, bop, and a bit of R&B. Titles include "Sahara Heat", "Illinois Blows The Blues", "Goofi ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(French pressing, from 1983. Cover has a chewed corner and a lightly stained and wavy corner.)

✨✧ Illinois JacquetIllinois Jacquet Flies Again ... LP
Roulette, 1959. Good ... $5.99
A really beautiful set, recorded after Jacquet's Verve years, and one that features his tenor blowing easily and soulfully over some larger arrangements with a mellow late night sound. We don't mean to imply that the album's a sleepy one, though – just that it's got this great relaxed ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original deep groove pressing, with colored bars on label. Cover has some wear & a split top seam. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

Ahmad JamalOne ... LP
20th Century, 1978. Very Good ... $8.99
A great little set from Ahmad – laidback, mellow, with a slowly spiralling groove that's slyly funky at times. Ahmad's playing acoustic piano and clavinet on the record – and arrangements are by Bones Howe, Richard Evans, Ahmad, and Mike Melvoin. A few tracks feature a larger group ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
