Milt JacksonOpus De Jazz (Arista) ... LP
Savoy, 1955. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the best-known 50s jazz sessions from the Savoy label – a laidback classic that's a great illustration of the label's shift in modes after the early bop years! The setting here is relatively informal – with Milt Jackson as the ersatz leader, working almost in blowing session ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonStatements ... LP
Impulse, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
A great statement from vibist Milt Jackson – one of his key solo sessions in a great 60s run of recordings away from the Modern Jazz Quartet! Like the classics that followed this one, the vibe is much more soulful than any of Milt's records with the MJQ – kind of an extension of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonVibrations ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
While we have never really gone nuts for much of the MJQ's recorded work, Milt Jackson's recordings as a leader outside the group had a more soulful approach than the colder MJQ albums. This set for Atlantic features players like Jimmy Heath and Tommy Flanagan alongside Milt, and has nice buoyant ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Milt JacksonWizard Of The Vibes (GNP) ... LP
GNP, 1954. Very Good ... $3.99
Milt Jackson and JJ Johnson – working here together on 1954 session cut in New York – but some of which features contributions from the famous French pianist Henri Renaud! At this point in their career, Jackson and Johnson had a very similar modern swing – and the record makes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milt Jackson & Coleman HawkinsBean Bags ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1958. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful little record – a real standout in both the careers of Milt Jackson and Coleman Hawkins! The album captures Hawk during his great later years – that time when his sound was even more soulful and inventive than ever – with lots of odd modern undercurrents that really ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Milt Jackson & John ColtraneBags & Trane ... CD
Atlantic, 1959. Used ... $1.99
An incredible collaboration from John Coltrane and Milt Jackson – and one that gives Milt one of his sharpest records ever! The setting is relatively straight – tenor from Coltrane, vibes from Jackson – plus rhythm from Hank Jones on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Connie Kay ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt Jackson, Kenny Clarke, Herbie Mann, & OthersMany Faces Of The Blues ... LP
Savoy, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Although the title and the cover (with strange emotional black female faces on the front) seem to cast this more as a blues record – the album's actually more a set of soulful bop tracks from the Savoy catalog, many of which are excerpted from longer tracks on other LPs. Players include ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Milt Jackson/Sonny StittIn The Beginning ... CD
Galaxy/OJC, 1948. Used ... $4.99
A bit of a mystery session – clearly recorded in the late 40s, but without as many session details as we might like! Still, the work's great – early Milt Jackson with a nice boppish edge, recording here with Sonny Stitt on alto, Sir Charles Thompson on piano, and Russell Jacquet on ... read more CD

✨✧ Paul JacksonBlack Octopus ... LP
East World, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Rare Japanese-only session by the monster bassist of The Headhunters – a killer set that masterfully toes the line between heavy jazz funk and a looser soul jazz vibe! Paul Jackson leads a group that includes fellow Headhunter Bennie Maupin, and other jazz funk legends like Herbie Hancock, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonAt Large ... CD
Prestige, 1960s. Used ... $3.99
Some killer soul jazz numbers from tenor giant Willis Jackson – including some tasty tracks from hard to find 60s LPs like Shuckin, Swivel Hips, Neapolitan Nights, In My Solitude, and Really Groovin. There's a total of 15 tracks in all – and most of the numbers have Willis playing in a ... read more CD

Willis JacksonBar Wars ... CD
Jazz Heritage, 1977. Used ... $4.99
The title's a bit hokey – an obvious play on the Star Wars film that was running in theaters at the time of the record – but the sound is classic Willis Jackson at his finest, recorded in a style that's right up there with his best 60s work for Prestige! The group here is a quintet ... read more CD

Willis JacksonTell It ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good ... $9.99
One of Willis' excellent groovers from the mid 60s – cut with his super-hip group that featured Pat Azzara on guitar and Carl Wilson on organ, augmented by trumpet from Frank Robinson and drums by Joseph Hadrick. The tunes are mostly simple numbers, but Jackson handles them with a tight ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Illinois JacquetBlues – That's Me! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1970. Used ... $7.99
A late 60s set, but one that recalls the sweet swinging style of Prestige Records' Swingville sessions from the early part of the decade! Illinois Jacquet sounds wonderful here on tenor (and a bit of bassoon on one track!) – blowing with plenty of open space amidst a lineup that includes ... read more CD

Illinois JacquetBottoms Up - Illinois Jacquet On Prestige! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1968. Used ... $5.99
Nice mixture of boppish and swing-based material, and an excellent soulful session that has Illinois Jacquet playing in a stripped-down setting with Ben Tucker on bass, Alan Dawson on drums, and Barry Harris on piano, who adds a nice warm dimension to the set. Jacquet's tone is fantastic as always ... read more CD

✨✧ Illinois JacquetDesert Winds ... LP
Argo, 1964. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An easily-grooving set that features Illinois Jacquet blowing over small combo arrangements with Tommy Flanagan on piano and Kenny Burrell on guitar – plus some added Latin percussion from Willie Rodriguez! The presence of the Latin percussion really adds a nice element to the album – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
