✨✧ Pepper Adams & Donald ByrdStardust – The Bethlehem Years (aka Motor City Scene) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1960. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most hard-hitting sessions ever recorded for the Bethlehem label – and a rare date for the imprint by the team of trumpeter Donald Byrd and saxophonist Pepper Adams! The style here is similar to work the pair recorded for Riverside and Blue Note at the same time – razor-sharp ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Takes Charge (Landmark) ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A hardbop classic from Cannonball Adderley – and one of his harder to find albums from the Riverside days! The set has Cannon playing without his usual group, in the context of an all-star batch of players that includes Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – who he worked with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyIn The Land Of Hi Fi With Julian Cannonball Adderley (Trip pressing) ... LP
EmArcy, 1956. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The title's a bit of a mouthful, but a good description of the way Cannonball was presented in the years before his soul jazz groove firmly kicked in! The "hi fi" is a bit overstated – as the album's pretty much of a straight jazz record, featuring Cannon blowing lead solos in a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

AirtoIdentity ... LP
Arista, 1975. Very Good ... $5.99
A soaring set of grooves from one of the world's greatest percussionists – a standout set as a leader from Airto, and a key set in his wonderful run of work from the 70s! The album's still got the loose, free feel of Airto's earliest work, and isn't nearly as crossover-oriented as some of ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Monty AlexanderIvory & Steel ... LP
Concord/Picante, 1980. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Monty shows off his Carribean roots on this one – working in a quintet format that includes steel drums by Othello Molineaux! The mixture of soul jazz piano and steel drums is a surprisingly fresh one – making for some grooves that have a sweet west coast sort of feel – a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lorez AlexandriaSings The Songs of Johnny Mercer Vol 1 ... LP
Discovery, 1981. Very Good ... $4.99
While not as funky as some of her other records for Discovery, this tasty session of vocal tracks still has Lorez singing in a beautifully soulful style, of the type that she's finally getting recognition for these days! The lady has always been one of our favorite vocalists, and she's got some ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mose AllisonCreek Bank (Young Man Mose/Creek Bank) ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
Like many other 70s reissues in the Prestige/Milestone/fantasy family, this set compiles 2 early albums by Mose. Unlike a lot of his later material, this set's mostly instrumental, though he does get in some vocals on about a third of the tracks. The album features some great work by Allison's ...

✨✧ Gene AmmonsFree Again ... LP
Prestige, 1973. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Dang! Poor Gene Ammons kept getting stuck with albums that had titles which referenced his prison time! Fortunately, the quality of this one's good enough to live past the stupid name – and the record has Gene blowing with a larger group of west coast soul jazz players, arranged by Bobby ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene AmmonsGene Ammons All Star Sessions (aka Woofin & Tweetin) ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
Nice nice album on Prestige, bringing together Jug's earlier sides in 2 different settings. The first batch has Ammons "battling" Sonny Stitt in a set of stuff that features hard twin tenors in the frontline, with the kind of cutting contests the two of them would perform live all over ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene AmmonsJungle Soul (Ca'Purange) (aka Bad Bossa Nova) (tiger cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $4.99
Bad Bossa Nova is right – as Gene Ammons really hits a great groove here – one that's not exactly bossa, but which has lots of Latin and tropical touches! The session makes great use of 2 guitars at the same time – using that of Kenny Burrell for soulful rhythm, but also adding ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene Ammons & Sonny StittBoss Tenors ... LP
Verve, 1961. Good+ ... $5.99
Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt go head to head in this classic album of tracks that perfectly captures the joy and fury of their live performances from years before! The record was cut in Chicago with a very hard rhythm section that includes John Houston on piano, Charles Williams on bass, and George ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Windham Hill, 1985. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A beautiful little record from this overlooked Windham Hill team – pianist Barbara Higbie and violinist Darrol Anger – working here in an open live setting that really lives up to the best spirit of the label! Both instruments are used in very fresh ways – moving through that new ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brian Auger's Oblivion ExpressLive Oblivion Vol 1 ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Really hard-jamming work from keyboardist Brian Auger – the first of a 2-part live set from the US, and easily some of his greatest work on record! The tracks are all very long and stretched out here – an extrapolation of the territory Auger was already exploring on studio sides, taken ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1974. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
The second smoking Live Oblivion set from Brian Auger and crew – twice as long, and maybe even twice as funky as the first! The tunes on here all really push the ten minute mark – stretching out the original Auger conception on studio sides, and featuring plenty of room for really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieBasie Plays Hefti ... LP
Roulette, Late 50s. Very Good ... $5.99
Tremendous work from one of the greatest pairings in 50s jazz – the crack later group of Count Basie and the amazing arranging talents of the great Neal Hefti! Hefti later went onto greater fame as a 60s soundtrack composer, but back in the day him and Basie were an incredible team together ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieKansas City Suite – The Music Of Benny Carter ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
A great little set – despite our initial fears about the package – and a really wonderful pairing of the talents of Count Basie and Benny Carter! We'll admit that we're the first ones to shy away from anything that says "Kansas City" in the title – as we expect a lot of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
