Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
Evocative piano portraits from Phineas Newborn – played in an illustrative style that's mighty nice! Newborn's got a touch on the keys that's like few other players we can think of – rich and full, yet without being too flowery or sentimental – a really nice balance that stands ... read more CD

David NewmanMr Fathead ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1976. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A pretty sweet set from reedman David Newman – a record that has him working with larger instrumental backdrops, in a mode that's almost like the sound going on with Stanley Turrentine over at CTI! William S. Fischer handled all the arrangements – so although things are tight, there's ... read more CD

Joe Newman/Zoot SimsLocking Horns ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy ... $9.99
We're not sure we've ever heard trumpeter Joe Newman and tenorist Zoot Sims work together on a record – and certainly never as striking a setting as this – a record that really gives both musicians a chance to open up and blow! Despite the title, the players are less "locking ... read more CD

Novi SingersNovi In Wonderland ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $23.99
One of the earliest records by the legendary Novi Singers – and a rare MPS set that exposed the group to a larger European audience! Novi hail from Poland, but have a name that's an condensation of the English phrase "new original vocal instruments" – a great summation of the ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Bill O'ConnellMonk's Cha Cha – Live At The Carnegie Farian Room ... CD
Savant, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Warmly lyrical solo work from pianist Bill O'Connell – a set that's got a much mellower feel than you might guess from the Thelonious Monk reference in the title! Bill's definitely got some modern chops, and his command of the piano is breathtaking – but he also rounds things out, ... read more CD

Adam O'FarrillStranger Days ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 16.98
Trumpeter Adam O'Farrill's debut as a leader, and it's a strong one! Adam is the son of Cuban jazz piano great Arturo O'Farrill, but on Stranger Days, he's pretty firmly establishing his own identity in contemporary post-bop – keeping up the family tradition as a top notch player, rather than ... read more CD

Yuji OhnoProof Of The Man (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99
Sweet funky sounds from Japanese keyboardist/arranger Yuji Ohno – one of his lesser-known film scores from the 70s, but also one of his best! The record's got a bit of a cop/crime vibe overall – with lots of warm electric touches, of the sort you might find on an American thriller of ... read more CD

Kunio OhtaMy Back Pages (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $26.99
An overlooked gem from the Three Blind Mice catalog of the 70s – a date that's led by pianist Kunio Ohta, but which features some excellent reed work from Masamiki Takano too! The record's got that open, creative spirit that we love from the label's best work in the decade – almost as ... read more CD

Shingo OkudairaThis Is New ... CD
Pit Inn (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $29.99
Shingo Okudaira might look a bit understated on the cover, but he's a hell of a drummer and a great leader too – one who seems to inherit almost an Art Blakey-like role in his leadership of the Force Quartet! The group's an already-crackling unit – with some especially strong piano ... read more CD

Shunsuke UminoMirage (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $31.99
An album that's every bit as cool and classic as its cover – a really kicking organ/tenor set, and one with a voice that's all its own! Drummer Shunsuke Umino heads up the group, and also wrote a number of the tracks – and he's got an approach that's not content to simply rehash old ... read more CD

✨✧ Open Systems Quartet (Tsahar/Ragin/Kowald/Drake)Open Systems Quartet ... CD
Marge (France), 2001. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
The group name's a bit mysterious, but we can say that these guys definitely have an open approach to their music – one that really allows a lot of flow from the trumpet of Hugh Ragin, and the tenor and bass clarinet of Assif Tsahar! The group come together as a piano-less quartet – ... read more CD

Frankie Ortega & Sy Oliver77 Sunset Strip & Other Selections ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the coolest records ever from pianist Frankie Ortega – a set that has his usual trio backed by a much bigger group – which makes the music pack a lot more punch than usual! Sy Oliver put the band together, and handles the arrangements – which leaves Frankie's piano out ... read more CD

Svart (Finland), 1973/1976. New Copy ... $18.99
A hip quartet of jazz performances – all recorded for Finnish radio in the 70s – presented here with beautiful sound as a stunning look at the under-tapped talent in that scene at the time! First up is a 19 minute track titled "Lydian Feeling" – performed by a quartet ... read more CD

Marty PaichBroadway Bit ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $9.99
Marty Paich takes on a host of Broadway tunes from the 50s – but as always with his best work, the result is something quite far from its roots – an amazing batch of jazzy instrumentals that owes very little to the original conception of the tunes! Paich's got an incredible ear for ... read more CD

Marty PaichMarty Paich Quartet Featuring Art Pepper (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Tampa/Muzak (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $24.99
A fantastic Art Pepper album – from his best period! The album's one of those smaller-label, mid 50s gems that Art cut in LA during some of his "troubled years" – all sessions that are great musically, but which are often overshadowed by some of Pepper's more famous work for ... read more CD

Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $9.99
Sparkling work from arranger Marty Paich – one of our favorite large group talents of the 50s! The album definitely gets a boot out of us – not just for its sexy, shower-situated cover on the front – but also for its great approach to the music, penned here by Paich in ways that ... read more CD

Steeplechase (Denmark), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
Jason Palmer's given us some great concept projects in recent years – including albums based around the music of Minnie Riperton and Janelle Monae – but this time around, the concept is all Palmer's own – and a great one too! As the title might imply, the music here is based ... read more CD
