Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1973. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Sweet electric funk from Robin Kenyatta – but a set with some slightly complicated moments too! The album's a bit like some of Yusef Lateef's more electric moments on Atlantic, although probably not as cerebral overall – and Robin plays a range of reeds, including alto, flute, and ... read more 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 KenyattaUntil ... CD
Vortex/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
One of the earliest albums as a leader from reedman Robin Kenyatta – and a set that's also one of his most compelling too! There's a definitely freer sound here than on some of Robin's smoother sets from the 70s – a vibe that's somewhere near the space of Impulse Records in the post-Col ... read more CD

Barney KesselBarney Kessel Plays Carmen ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Sealed ... $9.99
An odd choice for material, but a surprisingly nice record – and just the kind of session needed to break Barney Kessel out of some of his too-familiar trio modes of the 50s! The record here features jazz takes on tunes from the opera Carmen – in case you didn't figure that out from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney KesselBarney Kessel Plays Standards – Barney Kessel Vol 2 ... LP
Contemporary, 1954/1955. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A wonderfully laidback album from Barney Kessel – gentle guitar stepping around familiar standards, but all with a hip sort of west coast 50s flavor!

✨✧ Barney KesselHair Is Beautiful ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A sweet sweet groover from Barney Kessel – his own hip take on the soundtrack for Hair – all those wonderful songs originally penned by the great Galt MacDermot! Barney's got an extra-trippy feel on some of the best cuts – a wider sound on his guitar, which rings out nicely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney KesselKessel's Kit (aka Guitarra) ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Barney Kessel's greatest albums ever – a rare Italian-only session that has a sparkly Brazilian groove! The record was recorded in Rome in 1970, and it's got Kessel's guitar fronting a combo with organ and some very tight percussion – all dancing around in a fast samba mode that' ... read more CD

Barney KesselKessel/Jazz – Contemporary Latin Rhythms ... CD
Reprise (UK), 1961. New Copy ... $8.99
A wonderful wonderful set from Barney Kessel – bossa-inflected jazz, and a wonderful setting for Barney to hit some very groovy lines on electric guitar!

Barney KesselMusic To Listen To Barney Kessel By – Barney Kessel Vol 4 ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $6.99
A classic Kessel album for Contemporary – one that features Barney's guitar in a set of slightly larger backings, all arranged by Barney himself! The approach is a bit different from some of Kessel's more stripped-down albums of the time – as Barney works with instrumentation that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney KesselSome Like It Hot ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1959. Used ... $2.99
A pretty nice jazz tribute to the Billy Wilder film of the same name – and one that reprises a number of tunes from the film, especially popular songs of the 20s – but brings them back in a way that's still got plenty of hip 50s jazz touches! The record's nicely without the hoke that ... read more CD

Barney KesselTo Swing Or Not To Swing – Barney Kessel Vol 3 ... LP
Contemporary, 1955. Very Good ... $11.99
Given Barney's touch on the guitar, you can bet that a record like this hardly could claim "not to swing" – and the session's a tight groover done in a way that clearly marks Kessel as one of the best guitar talents of his generation! The recording quality of the album is wonderful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

No need to be cautious here – as the album's the sort you can jump into right away – thanks to some wicked grooves from legendary guitarist Calvin Keys! Calvin's had a great revival in recent years, but this album's the stuff that first put him on the map – a brilliant early date ... read more CD

A stone classic on the Black Jazz label – and one of the most unique guitar albums ever! We're not sure what the title meant originally – but over the past few decades, it's come to stand for some heavy heavy guitar work from the legendary Calvin Keys – a record that's really ... read more CD
