Marge (France), 2009. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
The reeds of Veronique Magdelenat are at the center of this trio set – not only some relatively free alto sax, but also very unique sounds from a curved soprano sax as well!

Marge (France), 2007. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A great trio, and a really great live performance – one that's right up there with work you'd expect from the players involved a few decades before – showing all of them to still be very much at the height of their creative powers! Oliver Lake's alto sax is especially great here – ... read more CD

East West (Japan), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Rare material from the great Lennie Tristano – a host of tracks that sit perfectly with his two landmark albums for Atlantic Records – and which maybe even push the envelope a bit more as well! The material is all from the 50s and early 60s – and is pulled together here in an ... read more CD

Piero UmilianiDa Roma A New York ... CD
RCA/Rearward (Italy), 1957. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the first great moments from Italian composer Piero Umiliani – an artist who later did a huge amount of soundtracks in the 60s, but really got his start in jazz!

Louis Van DykeLouis Van Dyke Plays Lennon & McCartney ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredibly groovy session of Beatles tunes – one played by Dutch pianist Louis Van Dyke on a church organ, with no other instrumentation for accompaniment! Louis wisely chooses tracks from the later years of the Fab Four's career – some of the more introspective ones that have ... read more CD

Louis Van DykeLouis Van Dyke Trio/Quartet ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
The earliest album we've ever seen from pianist Louis Van Dyke – a bit more swinging than some of his later work, but a set that's already got his great sense of space very firmly in place!

Louis Van DykePavane ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the mellowest pianists in the world – heard here on an album that may well be his best! Louis Van Dyke has a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a way of advancing notes on the piano with a subtle sound that's clearly part of the Bill Evans generation, but which ... read more CD

George Van EpsOnce In Awhile ... CD
Jump, 1946/1949. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Great jazz guitar work from George Van Eps – a player who could nicely sit on the fence between two different generations – bringing in some modern elements, while also retaining a bit of the rhythmic pulse of older swing! The sessions have a nicely intimate feel, and the CD features a ... read more CD

VelkroDon't Wait For The Revolution ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
A compelling mix of tenor, guitar, and drums – all very familiar instruments, but used with a rich range of textures by the Velkro trio!

Sunao WadaCoco's Blues (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $23.99
A cooking little record from Japanese guitarist Sunao Wada – one with plenty of offbeat touches! Like many of the albums on the Three Blind Mice label from the time, this one's a bit hard to peg – because the moods and styles shift a bit from track to track, and there's an openly ... read more CD

Mal WaldronImpressions ... CD
New Jazz/Universal (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $22.99
Incredible early work from Mal Waldron – a trio session, but one with a lot of dark edges! The group features Addison Farmer on bass and Al Heath on drums – and the tracks are played with lots of shades of blue – and a nicely restrained modern edge that still has plenty of the ... read more CD

Mal WaldronLeft Alone ... CD
Bethlehem, 1959. New Copy ... $6.99 9.99
A beautiful album by Mal Waldron – recorded in 1960, after the passing of Billie Holiday, and a very loving tribute by Waldron, who was her accompanist for a number of years. The set moves way past the usual "Holiday songbook" mode, and features instead a dark batch of tracks, two ... read more CD

David T WalkerWith A Smile ... CD
Baked Potato/Warner (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99
David T Walker brings it in with a smile – working with his Warm Heart group that features keyboards from Jerry Peters and drums from James Gadson! The sound's a bit smoother than Walker's work of the 70s, but still plenty darn nice – thanks to that sly, subtle rasp that David always ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
David T WalkerY-Ence ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $13.99
Laidback 80s work from guitarist David T Walker – a set that's a bit more moody than some of Walker's smoother albums from the 70s – and which is produced with an unusually sensitive touch! Many numbers begin with long, introspective passages from David on the guitar – slowly ... read more CD

Columbia/Expansion (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy ... $16.99
A long-overdue reissue – both of Cedar Walton's fusion albums for Columbia – back to back on a single CD! Animation is one of Cedar Walton's mid 70s funky jazz efforts – acoustic keys often traded for electric piano, grooving with a funky bigger band, almost in a Ramsey Lewis ... read more CD
