A fantastic early recording from the great French tenor saxophonist Barney Wilen! The session's a monster – cut with rhythmic backing by Milt Jackson on piano (!?), Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – and two cuts feature additional percussion by Gana M'Bow, which gives ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Barney WilenMoshi ... CD
Saravah (France), 1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wild and groundbreaking record recorded by the great French tenor player Barney Wilen! Although he got his start as a bebopper in the 50's, Wilen sort of dropped out of sight by the end of the 60's – and only emerged from time to time to cut strangely experimental sides. This record is ... read more CD

Sublime later work from French saxophonist Barney Wilen – working here with pianist Alan Jean-Marie, an artist that we totally love on his own!

Timeless/Pony Canyon (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $49.99
One of the best later albums by French tenor genius Barney Wilen – a true gem that's far better than the title might indicate! The tunes, as you might guess, are all themes from French films – stretching back to the late 50s jazz/new wave days, when Wilen recorded on a few brilliant ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent album by this lusty tenor player – and one of the rarest Blue Notes ever!

One of the rarest albums by this great Texas tenor player – and the kind of album we're very happy to see reissued! This heavy little gem was one of the few sides that Wilkerson cut under his own name – and it was the only one recorded away from Blue Note, as part of Cannonball ... read more CD

Forget the "hard mother blues" of the title – and think "funky big band grooves", because that's what the album's all about! Ernie really steps out on this one – sounding a lot funkier and more soulful than on some of his 60s outings – and working with a mix ... read more CD

Soulful alto work from Charles Williams – a player who sounds a bit like Hank Crawford here, but a fair bit funkier!

An excellent album of vocals by the great Joe Williams! Joe's always been a fine singer, but with Basie, he really gets the backing he needs to do his work the best.
