✨✧ Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival ... LP
Polydor (Japan), 1972. Used ... 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!)

✨✧ B & G RhythmB & G Rhythm (double a-side single) ... 12-inch
Polydor, 1978. Used (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
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

Polydor/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $18.99

✨✧ 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 ...

✨✧ Don ByasAlrededor De Medianoche (aka Amoureusement Votre) ... LP
Polydor (Venezuela), 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful ballads from the mighty Don Byas – working here in a rare Paris session with backings from arranger Jacques Denjean! Denjean really brings a great spirit to the set – subtle strings that flow nicely in the background, in a manner that's similar to some of the best Verve " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stanley CowellBlues For The Viet Cong (UK pressing) ... LP
Polydor (UK), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from the young Stanley Cowell – one of his first albums ever, but already a step ahead of most of his contemporaries! The set's a trio date, unlike some of Cowell's later albums for Strata East – and it's got a wonderful blend of soaring piano lines and more complicated ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, & Sonny StittFor Musicians Only (with bonus track) ... CD
Verve/Polydor (Japan), 1957. Used ... $5.99
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 ... $14.99
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 ... $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

✨✧ Steve LacySortie ... LP
GTA/Polydor (Germany), Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Quite a rare Italian album from Steve Lacy – featuring a quartet with Enrico Rava on trumpet, Kent Carter on bass, and Aldo Romano on drums – the same group on Lacy's Disposability album, but with the excellent addition of trumpet – which gives the music an even more powerful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

✨✧ John McLaughlinExtrapolation ... LP
Polydor, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
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

Teruo NakamuraManhattan Special (aka Song Of The Birds) ... LP
Polydor, 1977. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Seminal work from bassist Teruo Nakamura – one of the few Japanese fusion players of the 70s to make a bit of a splash over on this side of the Pacific, thanks to wickedly soulful work like this! Teruo's getting some great help here from a handful of American players – including the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
