MastersoundsBallads & Blues (handmade cover) ... LP
World Pacific, 1959. Very Good+ ... $18.99
The Mastersounds seem to take a page from the book of the MJQ – especially with a title like this – but as usual, the end results are a fair bit hipper! The album features the classic lineup with Buddy Montgomery on vibes, Monk Montgomery on electric bass, Richie Crabtree on piano, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(A very unusual copy – the original vinyl, in a beautiful handmade cover that's much nicer than the original!)

MastersoundsDate With The Mastersounds ... LP
Fantasy, 1960. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A great album by the bscure and groovy group that featured Wes Montgomery's brothers (Buddy and Monk) on vibes and bass, plus Richie Crabtree on piano and Benny Barth on drums. The group had a piano/vibes sound that was clearly inspired by 50s work of the George Shearing Quintet or the MJQ – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MastersoundsJazz Showcase – Introducing The Mastersounds ... LP
World Pacific, 1957. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A wonderful record – the first of only a few from this unique group that featured Buddy Montgomery on vibes, Monk Montgomery on electric bass, Richie Crabtree on piano, and Benny Barth on drums! The lineup's a bit like that of the Modern Jazz Quartet in the 50s, but the sound is something ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Two albums back to back – both by this obscure and groovy group that featured Wes Montgomery's brothers (Buddy and Monk) on vibes and bass, plus Richie Crabtree on piano and Benny Barth on drums.

World Pacific, Late 50s. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
The last session that The Mastersounds ever cut as a group – and a strangely compelling montage of tracks from the musical Kismet.

Beehive, 1980. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of the excellent albums cut by the short-lived Bee Hive label – an imprint formed at the end of the 70s, with a strong dedication to recording in the classic soul jazz style of the 60s!

Hidehiko MatsumotoThis Is Blues ... LP
Columbia (Japan), Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $64.99
A classic cooker from Hidehiko "Sleepy" Matsumoto – one of Japan's greatest reedmen of the 60s!

Sleepy MatsumotoSamba De Sun (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $26.99
Hidehiko "Sleepy" Matsumoto is a reedman who grabbed us strongly the first time we ever heard him play – on one of the first big band albums by Toshiko Akioshi in the 60s – and he's also one who continued to grow and refine his craft in the 70s, with an amazingly personal ... read more CD

Motema, 2013. Used ... $6.99
Maybe the greatest album we've ever heard from bassist Nilson Matta – a set that mixes Brazilian jazz modes with a much more complex approach – all in a style that offers up a really rich reworking of the famous soundtrack to the film Black Orpheus!

David MatthewsDune ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the coolest, grooviest albums we've ever heard from arranger David Matthews – a set that draws inspiration from Frank Herbert's Dune, and sends Dave out into space with a whole bunch of sci fi-tinged funky numbers!

David MatthewsGrand Connection ... CD
Electric Bird/King (Japan), 1983. Used ... $6.99
A grand connection from David Matthews – one of the keyboardist's fusion sets for the Japanese Electric Bird label, who gave Matthews a great showcase for his electric grooves in the 80s!

One of the slickest of Dave Matthews' funk records from the 70s – but still pretty darn nice!
