Sonny GreenwichEvol-ution, Love's Reverse ... LP
PM, 1979. New Copy ... $7.99
One of the few albums ever cut by the great Canadian guitarist Sonny Greenwich – a player who might be best known to American ears for his one recording with Hank Mobley, but who went onto make some great music of his own during the 70s! Greenwich has a style that's loose and sprightly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Al GreyHaving A Ball ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good ... $6.99
Although he's made many snoozy records in his time, the early Al Grey albums for Argo are pretty hard swingin', and have a lot of nice surprises. This one's got a very young Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, and the great Dave Burns on trumpet. Tracks are short, with a hard swingin' groove that's still ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note/Music Matters, 1957. Near Mint- 2LP ... $39.99
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!

Blue Note/Analogue Productions, 1956. Near Mint- 2LP (reissue)... $38.99
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!

Johnny GriffinReturn Of The Griffin ... LP
Galaxy, 1979. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Tremendous work from Johnny Griffin – one of those players whose talents never dimmed at all – and who's blowing here with all the same sharp intensity he first brought to his initial work in the 50s!

Jazzland, 1961. Very Good+ ... $9.99

Johnny Griffin/Wilbur Ware/Junior ManceChicago Cookers (aka The Chicago Sound) ... LP
Jazzland, 1957. Very Good ... $29.99
Slam bang! This is a cracklingly beautiful batch of hardbop tracks that accurately captures the fire and energy of the Chicago scene of the late 50s.

✨✧ Tiny GrimesCallin' The Blues ... LP
Prestige/Swingville, Late 50s. Good ... $9.99
A seminal bit of early soul jazz guitar work from Tiny Grimes – a player better known for his work in an R&B vein, but an excellent jazz-based talent on this tasty session!

✨✧ Steve GrossmanPerspective ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint- ... $5.99
One of the warmer Steve Grossman albums of the 70s – a set that moves away from some of the sharper fusion of his indie label sets, but which still has plenty of fire in Steve's horn! Grossman plays tenor and soprano, and the styles range from soul-fusion groovers, to propulsive jazz jammers ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Grossman joins the Cedar Walton Trio – on a sweet little set that makes for one of Grossman's deepest records of the 80s! Although Steve can really blow with a lot of power when he wants to, he hits a much more lyrical mode here – one that's clearly in line with the warm tones of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gigi GryceReminiscin' ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
A great lost date from the wonderful Gigi Gryce – a set that features the altoist in an sextet, but often swinging with a looser vibe than on some of his better-known albums from the 50s! There's a mix of soulful and modern here that's not unlike the Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Crown, 1960. Very Good ... $19.99
An incredible record – and the kind of rare LA bop session that got totally lost because it was never packaged properly!

Fantasy, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the wonderful 60s collaborations between San Francisco pianist Vince Guaraldi and Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete – a pair who were easily one of America's best contributions to the bossa at the time! Yet the sound here isn't strictly bossa nova overall – thanks to Sete's wider ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
