Steve MarcusSometime Other Than Now ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A really sharp-edged set from reedman Steve Marcus – a player who'd already had some pretty tight fusion records under his belt before this overlooked gem! Marcus was a saxophonist who was always experimenting with new ideas at this time – part of a generation raised on rock as much as ... read more CD
(Part of the Flying Dutchman 1000 Master Collection!)

Mike Marshall & Darol AngerChiaroscuro ... CD
Windham Hill/Adventure Music, 1985. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
An overlooked gem from that moment when the acoustic underground of the 70s was sometimes getting lost amidst the new age deluge of the 80s – even though all of the best musicians still their best talents intact! Mike Marshall is one of those musicians – working here on mandolin and ... read more CD
(Great version – with much better mastering than the previous CD issue!)

Terrace MartinVelvet Portraits ... CD
Ropeadope, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A jaw-dropper from Terrace Martin – the kind of record that sneaks on the market under everyone's ears, but will no doubt be one of those sets we'll all go back to again and again over the years! Martin's got a beautifully fresh take on funky jazz – steeped somewhat in the classic ... (Neo Soul, Jazz) read more CD

Luigi Martinale TrioCaruso – Jazzin Italian Standards (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Albore Jazz (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
A very different take on the oft-recorded jazz standard mode – as this time around, the standards are all Italian – which makes most of them pretty unfamiliar to our ears! But even the few that we know take on a new sort of life in the hands of pianist Luigi Martindale – a player ... read more CD

Pat MartinoFormidable ... CD
High Note, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Fantastic work from guitarist Pat Martino – a player who never seems to have lost his groove, and who might well be sounding even better in the past decade than a few years before! This album's got Pat in core trio formation – working with the organ of Pat Bianchi, whose sound ... read more CD
Also available Formidable ... CD 12.99

Masabumi Kikuchi SextetMatrix (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Victor (Japan), 1977. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99
One of the best albums ever from Japanese pianist Masabumi Kikuchi – a set that continues his development as a wonderfully expressive player on his instrument, but one that also opens up with a bit more bite at times, too – thanks to the presence of some sharp-edged contemporaries! The ... read more CD
(SHM-CD pressing! Part of the excellent Deep Jazz Reality series!)

Harvey MasonMarching In The Street ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Easily the greatest album ever by funky drummer Harvey Mason – and quite possibly the only one to live up to the rhythmic complexity that Mason brought to countless other fusion sessions for other groups in the 70s! The tracks are all spacious and snapping with brilliantly funky touches ... (Soul, Jazz) read more CD

David MatthewsShoogie Wanna Boogie ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the slickest of Dave Matthews' funk records from the 70s – but still pretty darn nice! Matthews was the mainman behind the legendary funk group The Grodeck Whipperjenny, and a key arranger in James Brown's sound of the Polydor years – but by this time, he moved into smoother ... read more CD
(Part of the CTI 50th Anniversary Special Collection!)

Rob MazurekChimeric Stoned Horn (with 3D glasses) ... CD
Astral Spirits, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99
One of the trippiest Rob Mazurek albums in years, and one of the most mindblowing too – and that's before you even put on 3D classes to look at the album's cover art! The set was recorded at the experimental studios in the Marfa art colony in Texas – and Rob plays solo throughout, in ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rob MazurekRome ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible solo record from Rob Mazurek – a wonderful change from some of his larger group and collaborative projects – even though we love those a heck of a lot too! This set's a great reminder of the core improvisational genius that Rob's always had, but which sometimes is ... read more CD

Nick Mazzarella & Tomeka ReidSignaling ... CD
Nessa, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Completely sublime duets between alto saxophonist Nick Mazzarella and cellist Tomeka Reid – working here together at a level that seems to both bring a whole new sense of energy to duo improvisation, and also put the record at the level of some of the most exciting work of the 70s! The ... read more CD

Christian McBride Big BandBringin' It ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
Excellent large group material from Christian McBride – an artist who may well be one of the most hard-working men in jazz these days! McBride's big band is always a treat – as the group soars with a soulful energy that matches Christian's smaller group material, but really expands on ... read more CD

Les McCannLes McCann Trio – Live In Paris – 28 Julliet 1961 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1961. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 29.99
A really great live set from the legendary Les McCann – recorded in Paris at the start of the 60s, and with a much grittier feel than some of his studio records of the time! The tracks are often long, and quite freewheeling – and you really get a sense of what a charismatic presence ... read more CD

Donny McCaslinBeyond Now ... CD
Motema, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Reedman Donny McCaslin's been making records for many years now – but he also seems to have gotten a new sort of inspiration from his work with David Bowie on his final recording – at a level that really seems to influence his sound here! The record's still very much a jazz session ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
John McCowenSolo Contra ... CD
International Anthem, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
The "contra" here is a contrabass clarinet, not a stringed contrabass – yet John McCowen manages to play his instrument in a way that greatly resembles the larger wooden source of acoustic sound! The tones are very deep, and very slow-rising – used by McCowen in this ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gary McFarlandSoft Samba ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $18.99
A dream of a record from Gary McFarland – lightly jazzy instrumentals with a warm bossa nova undercurrent! The style is incredible – a sweet blend of vibes, guitar, and even some light whistling – often also featuring wordless jazz vocals – scatting along with the groove in ... read more CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Noel McGhieNoel McGhie Afro-Carribean Project – Re-Masters ... CD
Marge (France), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
We've loved drummer Noel McGhie in many modes over the years – including free jazz and funky fusion – and here, he's working in a very cool hybrid of jazz and Caribbean styles – with some island-styled rhythms inflected by solo work on trumpet, guitar, and alto sax! The sound is ... read more CD

Noel McGhie & Space SpiesTrapeze (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Disques D'Esperance/Production Dessinee (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $24.99
A soulful treasure from 70s France – funky fusion at its best, played by drummer Noel McGhie and his legendary Space Spies combo! The group features some sweet electric piano on all the grooves – really skipping out with a light touch that steps around McGhie's tight drum work nicely ... read more CD

✨✧ Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of BreathProcession – Live At Toulouse (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Amazing music from Chris McGregor and his legendary Brotherhood Of Breath ensemble – easily one of the most exciting forces in British jazz in the 70s, and one fo the few who was still sounding their best in the latter half of the decade! McGregor's got as much bite and burn here as with his ... read more CD

Dave McKennaDave McKenna Quartet Featuring Zoot Sims (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chiaroscuro/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A great date from pianist Dave McKenna – an artist who's frequently caught in a trio set or smaller – which makes this quartet session with Zoot Sims a mighty nice treat! McKenna's got a really timeless approach to piano – one that often spans decades of jazz expression, ... read more CD
