Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1960s/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The world of Charlie Byrd is a pretty darn groovy one – as you'll hear on this sweet collection of 60s sides, pulled together for a double-length Columbia compilation!

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Important 70s work from Don Cherry – one of the first albums to bring his overseas experiments to a larger US audience! The set builds nicely off of styles that Don forged earlier in France and Scandinavia – a freer style of music than his work with Ornette Coleman, and a richly ... read more CD

✨✧ Billy CobhamBC (with bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A funky fusion classic from superdrummer Billy Cobham – a set done in collaboration with producer Wayne Henderson, who helps give the whole thing a soulful focus you might not find on Cobham albums from a few years before! The drums are strong, but never too jamming – and instead, they' ... read more CD

✨✧ Billy CobhamCrosswinds ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterful album from Billy Cobham – and maybe the best 70s record to really demonstrate the unique place he found for himself in 70s fusion! The album soars with a sound that really lives up to its cover image – but it's also not the heavy-jamming affair of some of Billy's more ... read more CD

Don EllisTears Of Joy ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1971. Used 2CD ... $14.99
A pretty darn fantastic session that mixes the electric trumpet of Don Ellis with some great large arrangements that have a slightly funky feel! As with much of Ellis' work from the time, this one's driven by a large concept – but the overall sound is nice and fresh, thanks to some great ... read more CD

Joe FarrellUpon This Rock ... CD
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1974. Used ... $9.99
Massive music from funky reedman Joe Farrell – quite possibly our favorite of his legendary 70s run for CTI – and that's saying a lot, given how great those records are! There's a lean, edgey groove to the set that's totally great – a lot more bite than usual for CTI, thanks to ... read more CD

Chico FreemanTangents ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1984. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Surprisingly dark music for a mid 80s major label jazz album – especially one that features guest work from Bobby McFerrin! Chico Freeman's definitely keeping true to his adventurous roots here – blowing some sharply angular lines on a range of reeds, and exploring both older jazz ... read more CD

Rufus HarleyCourage – The Complete Atlantic Recordings ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.98
A treasure trove of music from one of the hippest jazz players ever – the legendary Rufus Harley, a saxophonist by trade, but one who could also play the bagpipes as well! Harley had a really unique way of using the bagpipes as a free-flowing modal soloing instrument – one that's ... read more CD

✨✧ Freddie HubbardBaddest Hubbard ... CD
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Baddest Hubbard or goodest Hubbard – whatever you prefer, the set's a great sampling of Freddie's incredible work for the CTI label during the early 70s! The album only features 4 tracks, but for CTI, Freddie was cutting them so long, that's the only way you could go – as his ... read more CD

Freddie HubbardPolar AC ... CD
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1974. Used ... $6.99
Warm and wonderful work from Freddie Hubbard – a killer of an album recorded for CTI, and one of his most soulful efforts for the label! The album's got a bit more of a human heart than some of the more cosmic sessions Freddie cut at the time – a bit more contemplative and ... read more CD

Robin KenyattaStompin' At The Savoy ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A great blend of older jazz styles and the sweet 70s funk of Robin Kenyatta – served up with a hip sort of sparkle overall! There's a few familiar jazz modes in here that definitely live up to the spirit of the title – but most of the record is more open, laidback, and somewhat ... read more CD

✨✧ Robin KenyattaTerra Nova ... CD
Altantic/Wounded Bird, 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A cool bit of funk from reedman Robin Kenyatta – slightly electric, and often with a bit of an angular groove – almost a South African influence at times, although warmed up with a good dose of American soul as well! Most numbers here have some sort of keyboards – either from Pat ... read more CD

✨✧ Mingo LewisFlight Never Ending ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the hardest-jamming fusion records we've ever heard from mid 70s CBS – a blistering mix of fast guitar, tight drums, and spacey keys – all punctuated by some organic percussion on congas from Mingo Lewis himself! The groove really takes off to the sky – in the manner that ... read more CD

✨✧ Wynton MarsalisMajesty Of The Blues ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1989. Used ... $1.99
A bit more of a high concept album than some of Wynton Marsalis' previous efforts – a set with a few more added horns on side one, and an extended suite on side two! The work definitely shows Wynton's increasing concern with jazz history – his desire to embrace, and sometimes represent ... read more CD

Barry MilesSky Train ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Barry Miles is riding the Sky Train – and at a pretty fast clip too, given the jamming energy of this record! The album's one of Miles' most full-on fusion sets – but it's also one of his most soulful as well, thanks to strong use of horns on most numbers – with players like ... read more CD
