Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
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 ...

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

✨✧ Stanley ClarkeChildren Of Forever ... CD
Polydor/One Way, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the hippest album that Stanley Clarke ever cut – a stretched-out soulful batch of jazz-tinged tracks – very much in the same spirit as the more righteous soul jazz underground of the time! In a way, the record would be much more at home on a label like Strata East than ... read more CD

Nathan DavisRules Of Freedom (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1967. Used ... $36.99
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

✨✧ Max GregerChristmas Wonderland ... CD
Polydor/Jazzclub (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Christmas magic from German reedman Max Greger – served up in a richly sentimental mode that's just right for the Holiday – yet with a few groovy touches too! Most tracks have the sparkling polish you'd guess from Greger's image on the cover – rooted in jazz, but given lots of ... (Holiday Music, Jazz) read more CD

Max GregerMaximum (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Polydor/Celeste (Japan), 1965. Used ... $4.99
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

Polydor (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest records ever from Akira Ishikawa and his Count Buffalos band – a hip little groover that stands head to head with some of the best funky jazz from the US and Europe of the time! Despite Akira's earthy look on the cover, the record's got a relatively electric feel overall ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

John McLaughlinExtrapolation ... LP
Polydor, 1968. Very Good ... $9.99
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

Polydor, 1977. Very Good ... $19.99
Massive music from bassist Teruo Nakamura – a set that brings a Japanese take to the US fusion scene of the mid 70s – blending Teruo's warm, soulful vision with some great work from players who include Steve Grossman and Carter Jefferson on reeds, Lonnie Smith on keyboards, and Harry ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ NiagaraAfire ... LP
Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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 ... CD
Polydor, 1973. Used ... $3.99
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 CD
