Jimmy SmithSoftly As A Summer Breeze (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $5.99
Material recorded early in the Blue Note career of Jimmy Smith – but not issued until the mid 60s, and often overlooked at the time! The record's still in the spare trio mode of the early Jimmy Smith years – but is a bit lighter and more lyrical than before – a nice change from ... read more CD

Fumio KarashimaMoon Flower ... LP
Trio (Japan), 1978. Near Mint- ... $33.99
Elvin Jones joins the Fumio Karashima Trio for this great late 70s outing – no surprise, really, given that Karashima played with Jones on some of his Japanese recordings! The tracks here are long and spacious – very much structured by Fumio's gentle touch on the keys, and hardly at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry Mulligan & Ben WebsterGerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... $4.99
Mulligan always sounds great next to a tenor – especially in the Verve series that has him teamed up with players like Johnny Hodges, Paul Desmond, or Stan Getz.

Mike WoffordStrawberry Wine – The Jazz Piano Of Mike Wofford ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Sealed ... $5.99
Excellent early work from pianist Mike Wofford – a player who'd show up more strongly in the 70s, but who's already in great form here in this early 60s session! The album's quite unique – not the mainstream piano trio material that you'd expect from a major label at the time, and more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Another expansive effort from Bill Frisell, finding him integrating a variety of new sounds from other traditions into his new American pastoral framework.

ECM (Germany), 1988. Used ... $9.99
A live performance from pianist Keith Jarrett, recorded at Suntory Hall in Tokyo – but one that's a bit different than some of the solo sets that came earlier in his career, as it's got both a different sound and different style overall!

Checker, Early 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Very nice set of moody mellow late-nite tracks from Chicago tenorist Tab Smith. Although Smith played for years in bands such as those of Basie and Lucky Millinder, this is one of the few records he ever cut under his own name. The session's got Smith fronting solos with uncredited backing by a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
