Gabor SzaboDreams ... CD
Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $19.99
The guitar genius of Gabor Szabo – set to magnificent arrangements by Gary McFarland! The set's one of the most sophisticated albums Szabo ever cut – and has a slow-building style that steps off of his Impulse years with a deeper, broader vision of music. By the time of the set, ... read more CD

Gabor SzaboMizrab ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful work from guitarist Gabor Szabo – a record that really helped to shift his sound and style into the 70s! The groove here is often open and free – taking off from some of the exoticism of Gabor's 60s albums on Impulse and Skye, but with a bit more of the CTI electric groove ... read more CD

Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... CD
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. New Copy ... $8.99 15.98
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in ... read more CD

Masayuki Takayanagi & Kaoru AbeKaitaitekikoukan ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $21.99
Searing sounds from the Japanese scene at the start of the 70s – music that's equal parts noise and equal parts free jazz – served up on some freaky, fuzzy guitar from Masayuki Takayanagi – and a mix of alto sax, harmonica and bass clarinet from Karou Abe! Abe's a lot noisier ... read more CD

Horace TapscottDissent Or Descent ... CD
Nimbus, Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the best trio sessions we've ever heard from Horace Tapscott – warmer and a bit more soulful than some of his other sides of this nature, and played with a well-rounded style that really hits home! The group features great drum work from Ben Riley, and bass by Fred Hopkins – and ... read more CD

Gregory TardyChasing After The Wind ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Gregory Tardy's turned into a reedman with a great ability for complex soundshapes – these beautiful phrasings and passages from his tenor sax – yet always delivered in a way that never fails to swing with soul! On this excellent set, Tardy and his musical associates paint these lovely ... read more CD

Svart (Finland), 1973. New Copy ... $18.99
Two sets of live recordings from the archive of Finnish Broadcasting – issued here for the first time ever! First up is Tasavallan Presidentti – a finnish prog group from the 70s, but one who've got plenty of fusion in their approach, too – given that both tracks here are quite ...

Buddy TateAll Star Jive At Five (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
Buddy Tate on the relatively trad side of the spectrum – but still blowing here with that wonderfully deep tone that we love on his famous tenor! The set features a group named as The Buddy Tate All Starts – a combo that also features Doc Cheatham on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, ... read more CD

Adventure, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 15.98
Nine different Brazilian pianists, each performing a solo selection of their own – in a concert setting that has each musician really rising to the occasion in the others' company! The difference in modes and manners here is strong, but much of the material follows the warmly melodic style ... (Brazil, Jazz) read more CD

Creed Taylor OrchestraShock/Panic – Son Of Shock ... CD
ABC/Righteous (UK), 1958/1959. New Copy ... $3.99
A pair of very unusual albums – back to back on a single CD! The set's a bit out of order – and actually starts with Panic, the sequel to Creed Taylor's previous album for ABC, and like that one, a very weird mix of jazzy backings, odd sound effects, and cool production techniques! ...

Ebo TaylorEbo Tayor & The Pelikans (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Production Dessinee (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
A vintage set from the great Ebo Talyor – an artist who's been recording new music in recent years, but who sounds even better here on one of his classics! Ebo's got a fair bit of jazz mixed in with his sound – a layering of flute, trombone, tenor, guitar, and keyboard parts with a ... (Global Grooves, Jazz) read more CD

John TaylorDecipher ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $23.99
One of the hippest piano trio sessions ever on MPS – a bold little set that features the British pianist John Taylor in a trio with Tony Levin on drums and Chris Lawrence on bass! Taylor's got a style that's quite unique – with bits of early Chick Corea-esque lyricism, and touches of ... read more CD

Jack TeagardenAt The Roundtable ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
We love Jack Teagarden on Roulette Records – as the label's slightly broken-down, booze-drenched approach was perfect for the late life skills of the trombonist – and maybe a better setting for his talents than anywhere else! This fantastic set has Jack at all the height of those aging ... read more CD

Jimi TenorSaxentric ... CD
Herakles (Finland), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
Jimi Tenor looks shrunken in size on the cover, but that certainly hasn't happened to his music – which just seems bigger and more expansive on this wonderful release! The set's still very much in the spiritual jazz mode that Tenor's been touching for the past decade or so – but it ... read more CD

Leon ThomasFull Circle ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $7.99
The last album in Leon Thomas' classic run of albums for the Flying Dutchman label – and one of the most unique as well! There's a tighter feel here than some of Thomas' more free-flowing spiritual jazz sessions – but the sound is hardly commercial at all, either – and still has ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Eddie ThompsonPiano Mood ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $23.99
A wicked little set from British pianist Eddie Thompson – a player who always wasn't as well noticed on this side of the Atlantic, but who will forever be remembered for this classic date for MPS! The set's got a great criss-crossing of styles – a punctuated way of playing the keys ... read more CD

Sonorama (Germany), 1959/1960. New Copy ... $11.99 20.98
Bop, ballads, and lots more too – played by reedman Lucky Thompson at a time when he was really picking up some new ideas on the European scene!

Henry ThreadgillJust The Facts & Pass The Bucket ... CD
About Time, 1983. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Overlooked genius from Henry Threadgill – one of his under-exposed 80s sessions for the About Time label, and work that's every bit as great as his better-known sides for Delmark or Black Saint! The group here has a nice sense of freedom and interplay – almost a quality that hearkens ... read more CD

Henry ThreadgillWhen Was That? ... CD
About Time, 1982. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
One of the most beautiful, lyrical albums we've ever heard from Henry Threadgill – a set that still has all the sharp edges you might know from his other work, but which also comes across with a slightly more sensitive sound as well! The compositions are beautiful – really well-written ... read more CD

East Wind (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
Quite possibly one of the most successful Japanese piano trio recordings of the 70s – a super-session performed by a group that includes Joe Sample on acoustic piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums! Given that Sample's best known during the era for his electric keys with the ... read more CD
