✨✧ Chris HunterChris Hunter ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A debut solo set from reedman Chris Hunter – a fairly sharp-edged player on the alto saxophone, and one who gives this album a bit more bite than the usual mainstream fusion set from the time! Chris gets lots of strong solos out front – often evoking an older soul-styled mode with his ... read more CD

✨✧ Milt JacksonBags & Flutes ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $12.99
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
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover has two cut corners.)

Milt JacksonBallads & Blues ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $15.99
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!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Milt Jackson & John ColtraneBags & Trane ... CD
Atlantic, 1959. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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 CD

Milt Jackson & John ColtraneJackson & Coltrane (aka Bags & Trane) ... LP
Atlantic (France), 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
(French 60s pressing. Cover has some water staining on the bottom seam, and along an edge – and a small bit of masking tape near the opening.)

✨✧ Milt Jackson & Ray CharlesSoul Brothers ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Original green label stereo pressing. Cover is stained on the bottom 3 inches, with flaking/stuck-on paper on back.)

Illinois Jacquet & His Big BandJacquet's Got It! (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic, 1987/1988. Used ... $7.99
Surprisingly nice later work from this legendary tenorist – with solos by Frank Lacy on trombone, Jon Faddis on trumpet, Marshall Royal on alto, and Richard Wyands on piano. CD

Ahmad JamalDigital Works ... LP
Atlantic, 1985. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
A cheesy cover, but a pretty decent little record – not nearly as electric or dated as you might guess from the image on the front or the title! The premise is simple – as Ahmad's updating a number of the bigger tunes from his book of the 50s – not in terms of instrumentation, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettBirth ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $6.99
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

Jazz ModesJazz Modes ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good- ... $19.99
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 ... $6.99
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

Philly Joe JonesPhilly Joe's Beat/Philly & Elvin Jones Together! ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Early 60s. Used ... $11.99
Stunning! 2 of Philly Joe's best albums on one CD – and both of them are hard as heck to find in any other format! Philly Joe's beat is a beautiful bit of modernist hardbop. Philly Joe pounds away with his usual clarity and groove, but the real treat is an unexpected appearance by the ... read more CD

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

Robin KenyattaStompin' At The Savoy ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A great blend of older jazz styles and the sweet 70s funk of Robin Kenyatta – served up with a hip sort of sparkle overall! There's a few familiar jazz modes in here that definitely live up to the spirit of the title – but most of the record is more open, laidback, and somewhat ... read more CD

✨✧ Barney KesselHair Is Beautiful ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A sweet sweet groover from Barney Kessel – his own hip take on the soundtrack for Hair – all those wonderful songs originally penned by the great Galt MacDermot! Barney's got an extra-trippy feel on some of the best cuts – a wider sound on his guitar, which rings out nicely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rahsaan Roland KirkCase Of The 3 Sided Dream In Audio Color ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $12.99
A great 70s album by Roland Kirk – one that features him working on a lot of short tracks, in a pretty crazy style! A number of the tracks feature Kirk's uniquely quirky reed style in full effect – often processed with added studio techniques, in a very nice way. And along side that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
