Calvin JacksonJazz Variations On Movie Themes ... LP
Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99

Milt JacksonBags' Opus ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Good+ ... $9.99
One of the greatest Milt Jackson albums ever – thanks to an incredible lineup that features Art Farmer on trumpet and Benny Golson on tenor – both of whom give the record a lot more edge than usual for Jackson! The set's almost a maturation of the earliest modern grooves that Milt ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has moderate wear, with a nearly split bottom seam. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt JacksonInvitation ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A very nice little Milt Jackson album – cut in the mode of some of his excellent soul jazz group sides from the mid 60s. This set pushes Milt past the format of much of his other work – especially that of the MJQ – as it features him in a very soulful sextet, working with Tommy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing. Cover has light wear & a name in marker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt JacksonJust The Way It Had to Be ... LP
Impulse/ABC, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt JacksonMilt Jackson (Blue Note 1509 aka Wizard Of The Vibes) ... LP
Blue Note, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Wicked early work from Milt Jackson – a record that's got a lot more of an edge than some of his later work with the Modern Jazz Quartet – a near-perfect modernist bop sound that's every bit the best side of Blue Note in the early 50s! The package brings together material from a few ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has a cut corner, romr ring & edge wear, and a bit of marker on front.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt JacksonMilt Jackson Live At The Village Gate ... LP
Riverside, 1963. Very Good ... $7.99
A great little set from that time when Milt Jackson was fronting a group that also included Jimmy Heath on tenor – a wonderful pairing of talents that made for some of Milt's most soulful sides of the 60s! Heath's sharp-edged tone is a great contrast to Jackson's smoother touch on the vibes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonOlinga ... LP
CTI, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
Milt Jackson's third album for CTI – part of a wonderful run that really helped him redefine his sound in the 70s! The album's got the electric approach you'd expect from the label – a great change from the sound of Jackson in the Modern Jazz Quartet, and a surprisingly great setting ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a name in marker. Labels have some marker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt JacksonOpus De Jazz (Arista) ... LP
Savoy, 1955. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of the best-known 50s jazz sessions from the Savoy label – a laidback classic that's a great illustration of the label's shift in modes after the early bop years! The setting here is relatively informal – with Milt Jackson as the ersatz leader, working almost in blowing session ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover & labels have a name in marker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt JacksonPlenty, Plenty Soul ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good- ... $11.99
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
(Green & blue label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Milt JacksonSunflower ... LP
CTI, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
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
(Cover is stained and wrinkled on the bottom half, with the inner gatefold mostly peeled.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Milt Jackson & John ColtraneBags & Trane ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good ... $14.99
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 stains and a small cutout hole.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt Jackson & Ray CharlesSoul Brothers ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the great jazz sessions that Ray Charles cut towards the end of his years at Atlantic Records – a surprisingly great little album with vibist Milt Jackson! The set really shows a side of Milt that didn't always surface in the Modern Jazz Quartet – and Charles is surprisingly ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green Rockefeller label pressing. Cover has a split top seam, and some pen and marker on front.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt Jackson & Wes MontgomeryBags Meets Wes! ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good- ... $11.99
A beautiful combination we'd like to hear more of – one that comes from the meeting of Milt Jackson's vibes and the guitar of Wes Montgomery – both recorded here in easygoing brilliance! The session's a nice break from the usual sound of both players at the time – and although ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Bill Grauer pressing with microphone logo & deep groove. Cover is stained and flaky at the top, with a split bottom seam held with clear tape.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt Jackson (Modern Jazz Quartet)First Q (aka Modern Jazz Quartet) ... LP
Savoy, 1951/1952. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Some of the earliest material ever recorded by the Modern Jazz Quartet – early 50s sides that were originally issued as 78rpm singles! Some of the material was first released under the name of the Milt Jackson Quartet – but featured the lineup of Jackson on vibes, John Lewis piano, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonBest Of Willis Jackson With Brother Jack McDuff ... LP
Prestige, 1960s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Willis Jackson and Jack McDuff were one of the greatest tenor and organ duos of the 60s – and this 6 track set pulls together some of their best sides together for Prestige Records, pulled from titles issued under either player's name, but which featured both of them with differing groups. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonBlue Gator ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Good+ ... $5.99
A massive early Prestige set from tenorist Willis Jackson – and just the kind of record that set him firmly in the soul jazz camp for the 60s! By the time of the set, Jackson had already won plenty of fame for his R&B-tinged work – but here, he stretches out a bit more, and really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has moderate surface wear, with some stains on the back.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonCool Grits (aka Please Mr Jackson) ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good- ... $19.99
Smoking tenor work from the legendary Willis Jackson – and a key record in Jackson's transition from 50s R&B to 60s soul jazz! Willis gets some great help on the session from Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – both of whom craft some rootsy grooves that further ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonGrease 'N' Gravy ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Very Good ... $29.99
Great work from our favorite period in Willis Jackson's career – really hard-burning material that helped set a new standard for the organ/tenor sound in soul jazz! The combo here is one of Jackson's best – with Carl Wilson on organ and Pat Martino (billed as Azzara) on guitar, really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
