Dave Brubeck/Paul Desmond/Cal TjaderDave Brubeck Quartet/Paul Desmond Quartet/Cal Tjader ... LP
Crown, Early 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
Rare work from the San Francisco scene of the 50s – issued here on the Crown label, who usually just focused on the sounds of LA! As usual with Crown, the notes are a bit vague – but we can say that the set features some sparkling material that really matches the Fantasy Records 50s ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Red CallenderSwingin' Suite ... LP
Crown, 1955. Very Good ... $2.99
Beautiful bass work from 50s LA player Red Callender – heard here on this classic side recorded for the Modern imprint. Swingin Suite is easily one of Red's tightest sessions – a date that has Callender's basslines strongly leading a nonet of players that includes Harry Jones on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Crown pressing. Cover has clear tape on all seams.)

Buddy Collette/Jim HelmsBossa Nova ... LP
Crown, 1961. Very Good ... $14.99
A really cool bit of bossa jazz from reedman Buddy Collette – an artist who's not as well associated with the genre as Stan Getz or Paul Desmond – but who really cooks nicely here! The setting is relatively lean and groovy – with guitar from Howard Roberts, bass from Mel Pollan, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is in nice shape.)

Wardell GrayWay Out Wardell (Crown) ... LP
Crown, 1948. Very Good ... $5.99
Seminal sounds from the LA scene of the late 40s – one of the most important records to showcase the tenor talents of the legendary Wardell Gray – a key player on the harder side of the west coast for its formative bop years – and one whose career was cut short all too soon! The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with a deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Norio MaedaRock Communication Yagi Bushi (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Crown/Clinck (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Wicked funk from Japanese keyboardist Norio Maeda – also a hell of an arranger, too – as you'll hear on this superb set from the start of the 70s! The record's one of those key albums that took a 60s groovy Japanese sound much further into the future – giving the whole thing a ... read more CD
(Part of the excellent Deep Jazz Reality series!)

Crown/Teichiku (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wicked funk from Japanese keyboardist Norio Maeda – also a hell of an arranger, too – as you'll hear on this superb set from the start of the 70s!

Modern Jazz StarsJazz Masquerade ... LP
Crown, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $4.99
An unusual record that's had folks puzzling for decades – but one that's also kept their interest too, thanks to the quality of the music on the set! The record's got an unusual gimmick – in that it promises to feature all-star players encumbered by record contracts with other labels ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Vido MussoTeen Age Dance Party ... LP
Crown, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Maybe a bit more R&B than some of Vido's earlier work – and with some great tenor! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a half split spine, split bottom seam, and some pen and a peeled spot on front.)

✨✧ Ushio SakaiJam In Yokota (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Crown (Japan), 1973. New Copy 2CD Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little groover from Japan – a double-length, stretched-out set of soul jazz jamming – with killer Hammond, soulful tenor, and lots of trumpet, trombone, and guitar too! The tracks are all nice and long, and the album was recorded live – at a US Air Force base, from the ... read more CD
