Pete RugoloRugolomania ... LP
Columbia, 1955. Very Good ... $4.99
Pete Rugolo first came into prominence with Stan Kenton's group of the late 40s/early 50s – and he had a penchant for creating arrangements that dipped heavily into modernism, but never forgot to swing.

✨✧ Patrice RushenBefore The Dawn ... LP
Prestige, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Patrice Rushen's second album – and a very sweet batch of keyboard funk!

The group's a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

George RussellStratus Seekers ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good ... $24.99
Key work from the guy who put the "modern" in modern jazz – the great George Russell, heard here in the company of some younger players who definitely help him seek out some new territory in music!

Pee Wee RussellAsk Me Now! ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover! Sure, Pee Wee was a bit of a traditionalist on his instrument – the clarinet – but he's working here in a starkly modern way that almost recalls some of the best 50s work of Jimmy Guiffre, or ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pee Wee RussellNew Groove ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good- ... $2.99
Although Pee Wee Russell had spent most of his career as a trad player, the 1960s showed him becoming something of an ersatz modernist, still playing in the guise of older styles, but adding in approaches that were much more far-reaching than his earlier work, and which showed that, like Coleman ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver SainSo Good (In The Morning) ... LP
HCRC, 1981. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A later album by this legendary soul sax player – and although not funky like his early ones, the record does features some nice smooth sax-based instrumentals, with kind of a pre-smooth jazz sort of feel.

AK SalimAfro Soul Drum Orgy ... LP
Prestige, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible! This is a stunning set of African-inspired jazzy percussion tracks – similar to some of the work done by Art Blakey on his Orgy In Rhythm albums, but with a lot better horn work, and with an overall conception that's much more unified!

✨✧ Sal SalvadorYou Ain't Heard Nothin Yet! ... LP
Dauntless, 1963. Very Good ... $6.99
A pretty great little album from guitarist Sal Salvador – a player who didn't record much, but who was right up there with 50s talents like Tal Farlow and Kenny Burrell!

Columbia (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $42.99
Sammy sings soul – not Sammy Davis Jr, but this ultra-hip Japanese singer from the early 70s – a female vocalist who works here with great backings from the Freedom Unity ensemble!
