Milt JacksonBags & Flutes ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $16.99
Excellent late 50s work by Milt Jackson for Atlantic! Bags & Flutes is very much in the style of Milt's classic Savoy sides from the preceding couple of years – mixing together his jazzy vibes with light lilting solos on flute, either by Bobby Jaspar or Frank Wess, Milt's old compatriot ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing, with deep groove.)

Milt JacksonBallads & Blues ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
The title says it all with this one – as Milt Jackson plays a set of ballads, and a set of blues – but both in ways that really make the best of his warmly chromatic approach to the vibes! The players here vary on different tracks, but apart from MJQ regular John Lewis, the album also ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with obi!)

Milt JacksonBe Bop ... LP
Atlantic/East West, 1988. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A surprisingly great record from Milt Jackson – and we're saying that after being plenty darn suspicious about a record titled Be Bop recorded in the late 80s! The set has Jackson returning to the sound of his earliest roots – the boppish material he first cut for Blue Note as a leader ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonPlenty, Plenty Soul ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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

✨✧ Milt Jackson & Coleman HawkinsBean Bags ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good ... $16.99
A wonderful little record – a real standout in both the careers of Milt Jackson and Coleman Hawkins! The album captures Hawk during his great later years – that time when his sound was even more soulful and inventive than ever – with lots of odd modern undercurrents that really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milt Jackson & John ColtraneBags & Trane ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Near Mint- ... $18.99
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

Illinois Jacquet & His Big BandJacquet's Got It! (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic, 1987/1988. Used ... $5.99

Ahmad JamalLive At The Montreal Jazz Festival 1985 ... LP
Atlantic, 1985. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A stretched out performance from Ahmad Jamal – recorded with stunning acoustic brilliance at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 1985, in a performance that alternates between long solo lines on the piano, and bolder passages with bass, drums, and percussion! There's a strength here that's easily ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Keith JarrettBirth ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A generous 1971 effort from Keith Jarrett – backed up by his incredible, multi-instrumentalist co-horts Dewey Redman (tenor sax, clarinet, bells, percussion and more), Charlie Haden (bass, congas, clappers, steel drum) and Paul Motion (drums and percussion). The pieces cover a pretty far ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Keith JarrettMourning Of A Star ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Keith Jarrett's really pushing himself here – playing piano with some of the freewheeling qualities that would make him a huge new talent in the 70s, and also picking up some other instruments as well! Although the set's billed to a trio – Jarrett with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Keith JarrettSomewhere Before (Jazzlore pressing) ... LP
Vortex/Atlantic, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful illustration of the inherent sense of beauty in Keith Jarrett's early work – an approach to piano that was simple, straightforward, and marked by a ringing sense of tone that's evident in the very first note of the set! Jarrett here isn't trying to break any rules in jazz piano, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz ModesJazz Modes ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good- ... $11.99
One of the rarest albums by this fantastic combo from the late 50s! The band features the very strange mix of French horn, tenor, and soulful piano – played by Julius Watkins, Charlie Rouse, and Gildo Mahones, respectively. The sound shouldn't work, but it does, and beautifully – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing, with deep groove. Vinyl has a click on one track, but is clean overall.)

Jazz ModesMost Happy Fella (Koch pressing) ... CD
Koch/Atlantic, 1957. Used ... $4.99
The groovy combo The Jazz Modes were one of the 50's strangest groups – but their work is always entertaining, and a lot more filled with soul than you'd expect! The band is fronted by French horn player Julius Watkins and saxophonist Charlie Rouse – and Rouse's pre-Monk tenor is nice ... read more CD

✨✧ Elvin JonesMidnight Walk ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Elvin Jones' greatest records – a set that's quite different from both his work in the John Coltrane Quartet, and some of the powerhouse jazz sides he'd cut later as a solo act! The vibe here is a bit hard to describe, but it somehow comes together in the "midnight walk" of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hank Jones TrioBluebird ... CD
Savoy/Atlantic, 1955. Used ... $11.99
One of Hank's few non-trio sets as a leader – and a great set of hardbop tunes that features work by Donald Byrd, Jerome Richardson, Herbie Mann, and Kenny Clarke. The horns add in a lot more than you get on the usual Jones album – taking Hank's piano into firey territory that shows he ... read more CD

Fred KazEastern Exposure ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good ... $4.99
An unusual little record – a set that's a bit "fake" in its pedigree, but which still comes across with some wonderfully vivid results! Fred Kaz is a Chicago pianist, but he works here on a set of original compositions based on his readings on Near Eastern cultures – dubbed ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light stains.)

Robin KenyattaGypsy Man ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1973. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Sweet electric funk from Robin Kenyatta – but a set with some slightly complicated moments too! The album's a bit like some of Yusef Lateef's more electric moments on Atlantic, although probably not as cerebral overall – and Robin plays a range of reeds, including alto, flute, and ... read more CD
