StepsStep By Step ... CD
Better Days/Sony (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $19.99
Wonderful work from Steps – an all-star quintet of American musicians, but one who mostly got recorded exposure overseas in Japan! The mainman here is vibist Mike Mainieri – as he also produced the set – but the album's clearly an evenly-balanced affair, with wonderful ... read more CD

Sonny StittStomp Off Let's Go ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
An unusual late record from the legendary Sonny Stitt – a set that's got some electricity in the group, but at a level that's not entirely funky jazz! Instead, the tracks are long, and feature some well-crafted solos from the leader – and the vibe here is loose at times, a bit like the ... read more CD

Thomas StronenLucus ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Thomas Stronen's a drummer, but he gives plenty of space here to allow for a really strong combination of sounds from all the members of the quintet – a beautiful lineup that mixes piano with three stringed instruments, all given slight focus by the drums! The piano is handled by Ayumi ... read more CD

Sugarman ThreeWhat The World Needs Now ... CD
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The return of the great ones – and quite possibly the funkiest album ever from The Sugarman Three – a crowning achievement for this funky combo that we've loved for years! The core trio is still in place – soaring Hammond, tight tenor, and heavy drums – but they've also ... (Deep Funk, Jazz) read more CD

Sunnyside/Groovin High, 1959. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.98
A much-needed document of a very hip quartet – one that was led by trumpeter Idrees Sulieman, after his initial famous recordings for Prestige – and which also featured pianist Oscar Dennard, an under-recorded genius who left this world at a very early age! The 2CD package presents the ... read more CD

John SurmanInvisible Threads ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Invisible threads of sound from reedman John Surman – heard here in a group that's got an especially great sound – as it features piano from Nelson Ayres and a mixture of vibes and marimba from Rob Waring! Surman's always great, but he's sometimes got an icier edge on ECM – which ... read more CD

✨✧ Swiadectwo DojrzalosciHulaj Dusza ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99
A killer fusion combo from the Polish scene of the 70s – one who seem to take strong inspiration from Weather Report in their sound, and who also feature a very strong bassist in the lead! Wojciech Bruslik is at the helm here on electric bass – often more structured than Jaco Pastorius ... read more CD

Gabor SzaboRambler ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
Lean 70s genius from the great Gabor Szabo – a set that has him electrifying the sort of vibe he created on Impulse Records in the 60s – but all without ever sounding too slick or commercial! The group here is nice and lean – supervised by Bob James, who plays piano and organ, ... read more CD

T-Riot (Pietro Vincenti/Camillo Pace/Francesco LomDifferent Truth (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Albore Jazz (Japan), 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
A rock-solid trio session, with a top-shelf Italian groove pedigree – as the group features two members from Berardi Jazz Connection, and the pianist from Quintetto X! You might remember those two groups from their more club jazz-oriented projects from the previous decade or two – but ... read more CD

Aki Takase/Jan Roder/Oliver SteidleGoldfish ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Pianist Aki Takase has lost none of her fire here – even on some of the album's more poetic moments – which seem to draw equal sonic inspiration from the bass of Jan Roder and drums of Oliver Steidle! Takase has a great way of blocking out sound – creating fast shapes and slower ... read more CD

Tom TallitschGratitude ... CD
Posi tone, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Tenorist Tom Tallitsch has gotten plenty of love from our ears in recent years – and with a record as great as this, he's bound to get plenty more! Tom comes on strong with a really deep tenor sound – a mode that we might put in a range between Hank Mobley and Eric Alexander – ... read more CD

Billy TaylorOne For Fun ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
It might not be the frolic that the title implies, but that's a plus – because this a straight-up solid early album from Taylor – recorded in tight trio format, with that no-nonsense soulful approach that made him a star player from the start! The group features the great (and ... read more CD

MPS (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
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!

John TchicaiCadentia Nova Danica – August 1966 Jazzhus Montmartre ... CD
Storyville (Denmark), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
A set that's different than the studio classic with the same title – and instead an unheard live recording from the great John Tchicai – recorded in Denmark in those very fruitful years when he was first hitting the European scene! The sense of freedom here is amazing – and ... read more CD

Jack TeagardenDixie Sound Of Jack Teagarden ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $9.99
Don't think "dixie" – at least not in any sort of hokey southern way – as the great Jack Teagarden has as much early Chicago jazz in his horn as he does New Orleans – and works here in a great, late small combo setting that really lets him do his thing! There's a boozy ... read more CD

Jimi Tenor & Kabu KabuMystery Of Aether ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2012. New Copy ... $12.99
We've always loved the music of Jimi Tenor – but recently, he seems to get better and better with each new record – hitting a spiritual, soulful depth we never would have expected years ago! This album's one of his best efforts ever – and feels more like some lost 70s ... (Deep Funk, Jazz) read more CD

Buddy TerryAwareness ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A surprisingly soulful session from saxophonist Buddy Terry – a really righteous little record that reminds us a lot of work from the Strata East or Black Jazz labels! Buddy's working here with a relatively large group, but in a way that's really free and spontaneous – not nearly as ... read more CD
Also available Awareness (with bonus download) ... LP 28.99

Buddy TerryLean On Him ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the fullest albums we've ever heard from saxophonist Buddy Terry – a set that has him blowing along with a set of soulful larger backings – sometimes with a bit of gospel overtones as well! The lineup on the album's pretty darn hip – players who include Larry Willis on ... read more CD

Buddy TerryPure Dynamite ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Subtle dynamite from reedman Buddy Terry – easily one of the most righteous players to work for the Mainstream Records label during its early 70s jazz funk years – and an artist who really brings a wider-ranging, Strata East-like sensibility to this set! Buddy plays tenor, soprano sax, ... read more CD
