✨✧ Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival ... LP
Polydor (Japan), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ...

(Japanese reissue pressing from the mid 90s – but long out of print, and even hard to find then!)

Joe Beck & SabicasSabicas-Rock Encounter ... LP
Polydor/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brave New WorldImpressions On Reading Aldous Huxley ... LP
Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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 ...

✨✧ Donald ByrdParisian Thoroughfare ... CD
Polydor (France), 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second volume of work that Donald Byrd recorded live at the Olympia in Paris in 1958 – even harder-hitting in tone than the first! The set features Byrd playing some tight hardbop lines – working in a cool group that also features Bobby Jaspar on tenor, Walter Davis Jr on piano, ... read more CD

✨✧ Chick CoreaFriends ... LP
Polydor, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's Smurfs on the cover of this one, but the album's no cartoony effort – and is instead one of the nicest Chick Corea albums of the 70s! The sound here is nicely restrained from some of Chick's more ambitious records – and is done in a way that almost recalls some of Bob James' ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nathan DavisRules Of Freedom (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1967. Used ... $49.99
One of the greatest records ever recorded by Nathan Davis – an incredibly soulful reed player who's one of our favorite jazz artists ever! This one was cut in Paris in 1967 – a few years after his straighter sides for Saba/MPS, and a few years before his more funky and spiritual albums ... read more CD

Polydor (Japan), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very cool! This CD is a compilation of 2 albums by the groovy Blossom Dearie – one rare, and one not so rare. The rare one's Blossom's 1970 record cut for Fontana UK, entitled That's Just The Way I Want To Be, and featuring some amazing Brit easy arrangements that are right out of the Sound ...

✨✧ Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, & Sonny StittFor Musicians Only (with bonus track) ... CD
Verve/Polydor (Japan), 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous little record – one that's greater even than the sum of its three mighty parts! Although we've always felt that some of the "all star" sets on Verve could sometimes be a bit too "easy", we're always very big fans of the few that feature strong performances ... read more CD

Max GregerMaximum (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Polydor/Celeste (Japan), 1965. Used ... $11.99
German bandleader Max Greger wasn't always the hippest guy in town – but this album is a stunner, and it's filled with some wonderful moments! Greger's band here is almost in a Clarke-Boland Big Band mode – as it's got some top-notch European players in the lineup, and is augmented by ... read more CD

Polydor (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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 ... $22.99
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. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Chris McGregorVery Urgent ... LP
Polydor (UK), 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest British jazz albums ever to feature the Blue Notes – the legendary South African jazz group who left their country in the mid 60s, and took up an expatriot home in London! The session's led by pianist Chris McGregor, but it features a sextet that includes Blue Note ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful original pressing! Top corner of the cover seam is slightly unglued, but the rest is great.)

John McLaughlinExtrapolation ... LP
Polydor, 1968. Very Good ... $11.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album
