✨✧ Art BlakeyFarewell – Live At Sweet Basil (2CD set) ... CD
King (Japan), 1985. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the most stunning later sets from the great Art Blakey – a record that reminds us that although Blakey had a great talent for picking key younger players to work with during the 80s, he could also still be one hell of a drummer as well! The tracks here are incredibly long and open ... read more CD

Earl BosticEarl Bostic For You ... LP
King, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $11.99
One of Bostic's best – played with a group that includes Stanley Turrentine and John Coltrane, although you'd never know it, because Earl's alto sax is right up front in the mix. There's no problem with that, though – and as you'll hear from his tone, it's more than likely that Trane ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Earl BosticPlays Bossa Nova ... LP
King, Early 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
Well, it's not really bossa nova . . . it's more kind of Latiny backgrounds with a percussive and guitar sound, over which Earl Bostic solos in his beautifully raw style. Who cares about the true bossa-ness, though? We always love Bostic, and his alto sound is impeccable. Titles include "Cha ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ronnie CuberPin Point ... CD
Electric Bird/King (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the strongest fusion sets we've ever heard from baritone saxophonist Ronnie Cuber – cut at a time when he was playing so much great music on other folks' records, but hardly ever got to shine on his own! Cuber's got a lean quality with his instrument that makes it a surprisingly good ... read more CD

Bill DoggettHold It! ... LP
King, Early 60s. Poor ... $1.99
Next to Honky Tonk, this has to be one of the greatest Bill Doggett LPs for King! The set kicks off with Bill's great instrumental "Hold It" – a jaunty little groover that has the band fast vamping, then someone shouting "hold it", which they do, then start again. A ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
