Barry HarrisPreminado ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An album that's as evocative as its title – one that features a young Barry Harris stepping out with the kind of sound that first got him noticed right away! There's a bit of a bop influence in the way he hits the keys on the set, but the overall approach is often more lyrically soulful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used ... $12.99
Wonderful work from a player who never ceases to please us! Even at this early point in his career, Jimmy Heath had a soulful hipness that you'd be hard pressed to find in another musician – working with a vision of soul jazz that most other players wouldn't hip to until the 70s.

A definite thumper from the young Jimmy Heath – proof that he was always one of the hippest cats in his scene, even at the start! The record's ostensibly a blowing session with a handful of like-minded hardboppers from the late 50s – but as usual for Heath, the overall sound is ... read more CD
