Muse, 1977. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Pretty darn hip stuff from Clifford – in that righteous soul jazz mode that he was using at Strata East, although perhaps a bit less focused than on those records. The record's actually got vocals on a number of tracks – scatting in a kind of hip Bill Lee sort of approach, singing ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Clifford JordanThese Are My Roots – Clifford Jordan Plays Leadbelly (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.99
An odd little album from tenorist Clifford Jordan – but a great one too, given the unique format! As the title implies, Cliff pays tribute to Leadbelly – handling a host of Huddie Ledbetter originals, but in a style that's kind of 60s soul jazz, with a bit of blues as well – one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Duke JordanFlight To Jordan ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1960. Used ... $13.99
Quite possibly the greatest album ever cut by pianist Duke Jordan – a seminal force in bop, both for his writing and playing – but an artist who rarely ever got the chance to work as a leader! This session's a prime bit of lost Blue Note – with an unusual and edgey lineup that ... read more CD

An overlooked bit of piano genius from the 60s – a split LP with great work from both artists! Sadik kicks things off with the "east" side of the record – tunes that have a supposedly exotic feel, but which are mostly soul jazz piano groovers – performed by a quartet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

The rare second album from Juju – the avant jazz collective who'd later morph into funk band Oneness Of Juju, but who still sound pretty revolutionary here!
