Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival ... LP
Polydor (Japan), 1972. Near Mint- ... $49.99
A beautiful live set from 1972 – and a very unique album from Roy Ayers' Polydor years! The album originally was never issued in the US – clearly done for a hipper European market at the time – and it's got more of a jazz vibe than some of Roy's other work on Polydor, with sounds ...

B & G RhythmB & G Rhythm (double a-side single) ... 12-inch
Polydor, 1978. Very Good (pic cover)... $1.99
The title track from the one and only album by B&G Rhythm – a nicely snapping number with great Wayne Henderson production, and a spacey blend of jazz and funk that would be right at home on Fantasy Records! Lots of nice keyboards in the mix here, but the tune's also got some warmer ... (Soul, Jazz) read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Joe Beck & SabicasSabicas-Rock Encounter ... CD
Polydor/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $18.99
A pretty wild album – and a really wonderful mixture of funky fusion and Spanish guitar, featuring tunes written by flamenco guitarist Sabicas, backed by arrangements handled by funky guitarist Joe Beck! The sound is pretty darn incredible – way better than you might think, and ... read more CD

Brave New WorldImpressions On Reading Aldous Huxley ... LP
Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
Now that we actually live in the future of yesterday, it's hard to imagine the power that the book Brave New World had when writer Aldous Huxley first launched it on the world – a generation-shaping sense of ideas that had plenty of champions and celebrations, including this legendary German ...

Polydor (UK), 1965. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
1965 recordings from Ornette's London concert that featured him performing with a small semi-classical ensemble (which was necessary in order to get him a permit to play in the country according to union regulations). Side one features his composition "Sounds & Forms For Wind Quintet" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chick CoreaMad Hatter ... LP
Polydor, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A goofy cover, and a tribute to Alice In Wonderland, but a nice little record – one that has Chick Corea playing a wide variety of keyboards next to acoustic piano – coming up with a sound that's sometimes cosmic, sometimes spacious, but always a lot more creative than most of his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Peter HerbolzheimerHip Walk – The Complete Polydor Recordings (Soul Condor/Galaxis/Live Im Onkle Po/Hip Walk/Touchdown/I Hear Voices) (4CD set) ... CD
Polydor (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $36.99
A killer collection of work from one of the funkiest European talents of the 70s – bandleader Peter Herbholzheimer, working here at the head of his Rhythm & Brass group, and his Certain Lions & Tigers ensemble! Although Herbolzheimer's got a clunky name, his sound is incredibly fluid ... read more CD

Toshinori KondoTaihen (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Solid (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $28.99
One of those really unique records that trumpeter Toshinori Kondo gave us in the 80s – not really fusion, but not avant either all – yet a very unusual criss-crossing of electric and acoustic impulses, with a vibe that's all its own! Kondo's clearly drawing a bit of inspiration from ... read more CD

Junior ManceJunior Mance Touch ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good+ ... $8.99
One of Junior Mance's best albums – done in a format that really worked best for him: larger arrangements in the back, which leave Junior free to handle the funky soloing in the front! In this case, the arrangements are done by William Fischer – who always manages to come up with some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John McLaughlinExtrapolation ... CD
Polydor, 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Most likely our favorite album by John McLaughlin – and one that features him in a wonderfully spare setting – alongside John Surman on saxes, Brian Odges on bass, and Tony Oxley on drums. The playing has a free and loose quality that McLaughlin would later lose on some his more fusion- ... read more CD

✨✧ Charles MingusCharlie Mingus Sextet (aka East Coasting) ... LP
Bethlehem/Polydor (Germany), 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Charles Mingus' excellent albums for the Bethlehem label – recorded during that magical year of 1957, a real turning point in his career! There's a sharpness here to Mingus' musical vision that hadn't shown up in previous years – a refinement of ideas expressed for Savoy and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice German pressing – on Polydor International! Back cover has some aging, and so does the bottom seam.)

NiagaraAfire ... LP
Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Heavy percussion galore – and one of the seminal early 70s classics from the Niagara combo of German drummer Klaus Weiss! The sound here is far more percussive than even on the group's more famous album for Liberty – and in addition to Weiss' work on the drum kit, the album also ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Return To ForeverHymn Of The Seventh Galaxy ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Somehow it seems to us that the members of Return To Forever always cut better albums under their own names than for RTF, but these sides are still not without their merit. Like everyone else, we're rethinking our distaste for fusion, and this set finds Chick Corea, Lenny White, Stanley Clarke and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hard grooving work from the middle years of the Return To Forever group – featuring the line up with Chick Corea on keys, synths & percussion, Stanley Clarke on bass, organ and more, Lenny White on percussion and Al DiMeola on guitar. As you'd expect from this crew, this is some of the ... read more CD
