Cees SlingerLive At The North Sea Jazz Festival ... CD
Limetree/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
A mighty nice set from pianist Cees Slinger – a live performance from a very hip octet – a group who can come on with ensemble fury one minute, then play like a small combo the next! Slinger's choice of musicians is wonderful – and includes Dusko Goykovich on trumpet, Fredinand ... read more CD

Jimmy SmithLa Metamorphose Des Cloportes ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $22.99
An incredible record by Jimmy Smith – unlike anything we've ever heard from him! The session is a rare French soundtrack one – recorded in 1965, in a setting that was quite different than any of Jimmy's American sessions from the same time. According to the notes, Smith was just shown ... read more CD

Leo SmithRastafari ... CD
Sackville/Boxholder, 1983. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Hardly the reggae album you might guess from the title – and instead a captivating set that follows strongly in the best sonic legacy of Wadada Leo Smith's other records from the time!

✨✧ Lonnie Liston SmithLive! ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
The mighty Lonnie Liston Smith live – sounding every bit as great as he did on his famous studio sessions from the 70s – and maybe even more freewheeling too! The feel of the record is really tremendous – extremely soulful, with Lonnie jamming away on keyboards as the band ... read more CD

✨✧ Lonnie Liston SmithLoveland ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful album of smooth mellow jazzy grooves – and one that proves that Lonnie was still always great, even when he was getting the more mainstream production treatment. The record is similar to ones cut by other older jazz funk keyboardists at the time – like Ramsey Lewis or ... read more CD

Lonnie Liston SmithReflections Of A Golden Dream ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $11.99
Lonnie Liston Smith grooves it hard here with his Cosmic Echoes group – mixing in a stronger dose of soul than ever before, yet still giving tracks a righteous feel overall!

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesCosmic Funk ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $11.99
A real gem from Lonnie Liston Smith's early years in the studio – and a record that's perhaps a bit more "cosmic" than it is "funk" – but that's why we like it so much! The session has Lonnie stretching out a bit more than usual – borrowing some of the ... read more CD

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesExpansions ... CD
Flying Dutchman, 1975. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
Quite possibly the most celebrated album ever from keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith – a groove-heavy classic that's burned up many a dancefloor in its day, yet also a record that features some great mellow moments as well! The title track "Expansions" is virtually a blueprint for ... read more CD

Louis SmithSmithville ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
A really hard-edged set from trumpeter Louis Smith – one of his only two albums as a leader from the early years, and a heck of a great little album, thanks to tenor work by Charlie Rouse! Rouse is blowing beautifully here in one of his classic pre-Monk appearances – recorded at a time ... read more CD

Stuff SmithLive At The Montmartre ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99

Wadada Leo SmithRed Chrysanthemums – Live 1977 ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1977. New Copy ... $11.99
An unreleased set of solo performances from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith – one that we'd rank right up there with his most adventurous work of the 70s! Smith comes across wonderfully on the record – full of soul and imagination, and easily as impressive on his solo instruments as ... read more CD

Soil & Pimp SessionsBlack Track ... CD
Victor (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $29.99
Soil & Pimp Sessions have been making music far longer than anyone else might do with such a clunky name – and over the years, they've just gotten better and better, and found rich new ways to express themselves!

Soil & Pimp SessionsNight In Blue South Mountain ... CD
Victor (Japan), 2015. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
