Festival/Votary (Australia), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 32.99
One of our favorite records ever from the great Sven Libaek – an artist who's possibly best known for his underwater soundtrack work of the 70s, but who shines equally well here on a late 60s album that has him hitting the top of the waves! The music was written for a surf film in 1968, but ... (Soundtracks, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Athens Of The North (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $24.99
A set that's more electronic than some of the other recent albums from Greg Foat, but a record that still fits nicely inside his style – that understated approach to keyboard-driven jazz – heavy on influences from the past, yet never delivered in a way that's too straightforward at all ...
