Mel LewisMel Lewis & Friends ... CD
Horizon/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
An excellent solo set as a leader from drummer Mel Lewis – one that reminds us that he can still cook very strongly away from his big band with trumpeter Thad Jones! The set has Lewis in different groupings with an excellent set of the friends mentioned in the title – a top-shelf ... read more CD

Ramsey LewisSun Goddess (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1974. New Copy ... $11.99 13.98
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s! The album has Ramsey working strongly with Earth Wind & Fire – no surprise, given his close ties to Maurice White, who was the ... read more CD

David LiebmanDoin' It Again ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
An excellent set from reedman Dave Liebman – easily one of his most soulful from the 70s, thanks to some key currents in the group! John Scofield is on the session – playing guitar, but sometimes with this phrasing that almost feels more like a keyboard – especially in the way it ... read more CD

Charles LloydDiscovery! ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful bit of soul jazz – much less trippy than some of Charles Lloyd's later work, and handled with a soulful flair that's a mix of Coltrane spiritualism, with an even larger dose of the sort of post-Trane experiments in jazz that would crop up during the early 70s on smaller ... read more CD

Charles LloydWild Man Dance ... CD
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Charles Lloyd makes a step over to Blue Note Records – and the result is one of his richest, most organic albums in years! The whole thing's a live performance from Poland – done as a suite of longer tracks that feature a core acoustic quartet with Lloyd on tenor, plus added cymbalom ... read more CD

Wilbert LongmireSunny Side Up ... CD
Columbia/Victor (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A standout set from guitarist Wilbert Longmire – one of a few classics cut in the 70s for Bob James' Tappan Zee label, done with some great help from James on production and arrangements too! The vibe is very much in the best spirit of the Kudu Records label at the time – plenty of ... read more CD

Joe Lovano & Dave Douglas SoundprintsLive At Monterey Jazz Festival ... CD
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A really wonderful pairing of trumpeter Dave Douglas and tenorist Joe Lovano – working together here on some of the most adventurous material that either player has cut in years!

✨✧ Lee LovettLee + 3 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Wynne/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few dates ever as a leader from pinaist Lee Lovett – an artist who mostly worked as an arranger, with credits that include stints with the groups of Erskine Hawkins, Cat Anderson, Tab Smith, and Lucky Millinder! Lee's music here has a much more modern feel than some of those ... read more CD

Reggie LucasSurvival Themes ... CD
East Wind (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A very nice set of Japanese fusion tracks cut by guitarist Reggie Lucas, with nice electric backing by Hubert Eaves on keyboard, Michael Henderson on bass, and other acoustic players like Mtume, John Stubblefield, and Clifford Adams. The set was recorded by East Wind in Japan, and the best cuts on ... read more CD

✨✧ Lage LundIdlewild ... CD
Criss Cross (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful showcase for the warm, ringing tones of guitarist Lage Lund – a wonderful player who's only gotten better and better over the years! Lage has this richly chromatic style that's always a treat with a larger group, but it gets an especially strong focus here in an intimate trio ... read more CD

Bobby LyleGenie ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A funky fusion classic – and quite possibly Bobby Lyle's most perfectly realized album! The set was Bobby's first full US outing, and it's filled with soaring, riffing keyboards that stretch out into territory explored a few years before by Johnny Hammond and Lonnie Liston Smith! The real ... read more CD
Also available Genie ... CD 14.99

Johnny LytleLoop/New & Groovy ... CD
BGP (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99
Killer set that combines both of Johnny's rare albums cut for the tiny Tuba label in the mid 60s! The records both have a great funky vibes sound, with lots of tight drumming, and soulful bubbling organ grooves. These are very sought after in their original pressings, and both LPs usually fetch ... read more CD

Milestone/Dusty Groove, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
Two lost smokers from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – back to back on a single CD! The Soulful Rebel is lost early 70s set from Lytle – totally funky, but in a way that's very different than his famous 60s work! The album's got a sweet electric groove that comes not only from Johnny's ... read more CD
(On the Dusty Groove label.)

Harold MabernRight On Time ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2013. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Bold, soulful work from the great Harold Mabern – and a record that really takes us back to his soaring modal groove of the 60s! Mabern's still got some of the lighter lyricism of more recent years here – but he also seems to pack a bit more punch from a rhythmic tip, too – no ... read more CD

Harold Mabern with Gregory Porter & Kurt EllingAfro Blue ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2015. New Copy ... $12.99 17.99
The great Harold Mabern kicks it hard with a key core group – then finds a way to open up with some surprise guest artists as well – including singers Gregory Porter, Kurt Elling, Jane Monheit, and Norah Jones! The core of the album features Mabern's piano rocketing out with rhythm ... read more CD

A pair of 70s classics from this mighty fusion ensemble – back to back in a single collection! First up is Between Nothingness & Eternity – and although there's a pretty big space between nothingness & eternity – but Mahavishnu Orchestra manage to fill most of it up with ... read more CD

Tony Malaby's TubacelloScorpion Eater ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
The group name is perfect for this one – as the quartet features strong work from a tuba and cello, and no bass at all – which leaves both of those instruments to take over some of that role, especially the tuba! Tony Malaby is searing on tenor and soprano sax, and the set also ... read more CD

Russell MaloneLove Looks Good On You ... CD
High Note, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Warm, round, full-toned guitar from Russell Malone – a contemporary player, but one who's upheld a classic vibe for years! We love Russell best in a setting like this – a small combo date that elevates the player to territory that you might have found with Kenny Burrell or Grant Green ... read more CD

Junior ManceHoly Mama ... CD
East Wind (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
A great Junior Mance album from the 70s – one of those dates that was originally only intended for the Japanese market, but eventually got wider release because it sounded so great! Junior's a bit different here than on his Atlantic or Polydor work from a few years before – warm and ... read more CD

Junior ManceJunior ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $13.99
A groovy early album from pianist Junior Mance – one of the first we've ever seen with him as a leader, and a rare date recorded at the end of the 50s for Verve! The style here is a fair bit like some of Junior's work of the early 60s – a definite soul jazz leaning, but also some more ... read more CD
