Eric AlexanderGentle Ballads (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2004. New Copy (reissue)... $56.99
A long-overdue session of ballads from modern tenor giant Eric Alexander – a player we've always loved for his soaring, leaping lines on soul jazz sets – but who also has just the right tone to carry off an album of mellow tunes and ballads! Alexander's tone reminds us a lot of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eric AlexanderGentle Ballads 6 ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2022. New Copy ... $29.99 34.99
A great installment in this long-running series from tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander – a player who also picks up a bit of alto on the record too! As with the previous volumes, this is way more than just a set of sleepy ballads – as the presentation is way more than "gentle" ... read more CD

Eric AlexanderMy Favorite Things (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2007. New Copy (reissue)... $54.99 59.99
A fitting title for this one – because Eric Alexander is one of our favorite things in jazz – and albums like this are the reason why! Alexander's tenor is in very sharp-edged formation here – working with a familiar quartet of David Hazeltine on piano, John Webber on bass, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Richie BeirachWhat Is This Thing Called Love (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 1999. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Richie Beirach swings nicely on some of this set, but also manages to kick back a bit on a few ballads too – dropping out of the heavier rhythm on the swingers from George Mraz on bass and Billy Hart on drums – to hit some mellower modes that really show off the sensitive side of his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Venus (Japan), 2005. Used ... $14.99
Great work by a relative newcomer – alto saxophonist Franceso Cafiso, recorded here in a wonderful setting with backing by a trio that features David Hazeltine on piano, David Williams on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums!

✨✧ Andrew CyrilleOde To The Living Tree (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 1994. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pure genius from Andrew Cyrille – a record that's got a bit more of a soaring, spiritual vibe than some of his more freely improvised work of the past – a set that marks a key chapter in this stretch of the drummer's career, similar to his album on DIW at the same time! The group is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Four Levels Of ExistenceFour Levels Of Existence ... CD
Venus/Lion, 1976. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A raw and quite excellent batch of fuzzy Greek psychedelic rock from the mid 70s – the rare self-titled set for Four Levels Of Existence! The lyrics are Greek, so we can't speak for the songwriting on the narrative tip, but the sound is excellent – with fuzzed out guitars and some wiry ... read more CD

✨✧ Eddie HigginsBewitched ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great later work from Eddie Higgins – one of the excellent sets he's cut for Venus Records – a label who've really helped elevate him to a great new sound! Higgins was always great back in the day on the Chicago scene, but after the early 60s his work was really sporadic – so the ... read more CD

✨✧ Eddie Higgins TrioHaunted Heart (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 1997. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Part of the late 90s rise to genius from pianist Eddie Higgins – a set of simple, lyrical beauty that really holds up well over the years – one of those classics that were cut away from the age of the classics – the sort of record that Eddie should have been making many decades ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Steve KuhnLove Walked In ... CD
Venus/Sunnyside, 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
There's plenty of love in the tones of Steve Kuhn's piano here – that deeply expressive sound that we first came to love in his earliest years, matured beautifully in the subtle setting of a straight trio date like this – with help from Buster Williams on bass and Bill Stewart on drums! ... read more CD

Wonderful work from Cedar Walton – the kind of simple, soulful set that has us always looking out for his albums again and again over the years!

✨✧ Barney WilenNew York Romance ... CD
Venus/Sunnyside (France), 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful blowing from the great Barney Wilen – an album that's as relaxed as you might guess from the image on the cover, but which has a rock-solid sound all the way through!
