Thelonious MonkLondon Collection Vol 3 (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
ORG/Black Lion, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Very late work from the legendary Thelonious Monk – but surprisingly great as well! The session was recorded in London – as you might guess from the title – and although Monk's not working with his regular quartet with Charlie Rouse, he does interact wonderfully with a trio that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thelonious MonkThelonious In Action ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A classic cooker from Thelonious Monk – recorded during his legendary run at the Five Spot in the late 50s, and featuring some especially great work on tenor from a young Johnny Griffin! Griffin's filling a role here that would be cemented a bit more firmly in the 60s by Charlie Rouse – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious MonkThelonious Monk Orchestra At Town Hall ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good ... $19.99
A unique large group effort from Thelonious Monk – but one that bristles with all the angular energy of his other great work for Riverside! The group here is a tentet – filled with excellent players who include Donald Byrd, Phil Woods, Pepper Adams, Eddie Bert, Robert Northern, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious MonkThelonious Monk Quartet Plus Two at the Blackhawk ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A stunning pre-Columbia session from Thelonious Monk – a really great live date that has Monk's familiar quartet augmented by west coast players Joe Gordon on trumpet and Harold Land on tenor! Given that Charlie Rouse is already in the group on tenor, the addition of Land's horn makes for a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious MonkUnderground ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the most gimmicky cover images ever used to sell the music of Thelonious Monk (and Monk himself hated the image) – but a key classic from his legendary years at Columbia Records! The album's got an edge that definitely lives up to its title – even if the cover photo is a bad ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk & Gerry MulliganMulligan Meets Monk ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Very Good ... $19.99
An unlikely pair, but a great one here – and the record's one of those few magical moments where bringing together unusual partners actually works! Mulligan's cool hardly seems a match for Monk's angular modernism, but together the players seem to strike a middle ground that resonates with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Marcio MontarroyosMagic Moment ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Very Good ... $2.99
Sweet jazzy funk from Brazilian trumpeter Marcio Montarroyos – a laidback set of electric tunes that feels like some of Freddie Hubbard's best work from the 70s! There's a nice degree of space in the tracks, and Marcio takes things very leisurely – blowing with more than enough space ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

JR MonteroseJR Monterose ... LP
Blue Note, 1956. Near Mint- ... $24.99
The only Blue Note album ever recorded by JR Monterose – one of the more enigmatic figures of the 50s scene! Montrose was a brilliant player, with a tone and a solo conception that were very unique – but he lapsed in relative obscurity, due to the fact that he had a penchant for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Funky LP from Monk, with nice tight electric bass playing, and groovy arrangements by Wayne Henderson, who also produced the LP.

Tracks include "Big ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jack MontroseHorn's Full ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good ... $12.99
A great set, and one of the few obscure sides of west coast jazz from Jack Montrose (not to be confused with east coast player JR Montrose). Shorty Rogers supervised the session, and the album features some open-ended tracks done in quintet format that are similar to some of Shorty's best work for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James MoodyAnother Bag ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Hip, angular, post-bop material from James Moody – the kind of album that made him one of the key soul jazz innovators of the 60s! The session's one of Moody's excellent outings with arranger Tom McIntosh – a young talent who helped re-shape Moody's musical vision with his deeply ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James MoodyFeelin' It Together ... LP
Muse, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
James Moody's definitely feelin it here – stepping back into a straighter hardbop mode after some funkier sets of the early 70s – really sounding great on tenor, alto, and flute – and working with a very hip quartet for the date! Kenny Barron's in the group on both electric and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James MoodyFlute N The Blues ... LP
Argo, 1956. Very Good- ... $12.99
One of James Moody's first albums for Argo – and an album that features him shifting from tenor sax over to flute – and playing in a slyly seductive way that would have great implications for generations of soul jazz musicians for years to come! The sound here is never sleepy – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James MoodyGreat Day ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Way more than just a James Moody album – a true proof of his genius in the 60s! The album was put together under the guidance of Tom McIntosh – a very hip young writer and arranger that Moody had been pushing on other records, and who steps into the limelight here with a wonderful set ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

James MoodyHeritage Hum ... LP
Perception, Early 70s. Very Good ... $2.99
While not as all-out funky as some of the other Perception jazz LPs from the time (including Moody's own The Teachers), this one's got a great slinking groove to it, and features nice playing by Michael Longo, who was also in Dizzy's funky 70s group at the time. Eddie Jefferson sings vocals on a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

The band includes the great Dave Burns on trumpet, Jimmy Boyed on piano, and Eddie Jefferson singing a famous vocal on one track ("I've Got The Blues"). Other titles include "Blues Walk", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl is clean, but has some light surface marks – not bad overall. Cover has light wear, and a bit of clear tape, but is decent too)

A long-overdue tribute to the legendary Moondog – one of the true visionaries of American music in the 20th Century! Moondog got his starts as a blind musician working the streets of New York at the end of the 40s, but he did so (as you'll note on the cover photo) with a range of unusual ...
