Miles Davis/Robert GlasperMiles Ahead – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... CD
Columbia, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
A very cool record that's way more than just a set of songs strung together for a film – and instead a well-done album that mixes older Miles Davis material, both classic and rare, with new tracks handled by the mighty Robert Glasper – and a few bits of dialogue from the film, spoken by ... read more CD

Vee Jay/Charly (UK), 1960. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
One of our top ten jazz albums of all time! Honest! This stunning session from 1960 not only coined the term "young lions" in jazz, but offers up a pack of them that any modern players would be hard-pressed to beat. Trumpeter Lee Morgan, tenorist Wayne Shorter, and pianist Bobby ... read more CD

Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1982. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Not only a great follow-up to the first Echoes Of An Era session, but also a standout 80s performance from Nancy Wilson – quite possibly her best of the decade!

Ruby BraffRuby Braff Goes Girl Crazy ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1959. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
One of the greatest albums ever recorded by trumpeter Ruby Braff – a set that's hipper than some of his other 50s sessions, thanks to some wonderful sidemen! The sound here is still somewhat traditional, but there's also an undercurrent of 50s modern swing too – thanks to work by Jim ... read more CD

Ernie WattsWonder Bag ... CD
Vault/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
An excellent early album from Ernie Watts – one that has him taking on the music of Stevie Wonder with very groovy results! The sound here is quite different than the smoother fusion of Ernie's later years – and instead, there's a rollicking soul jazz groove to most numbers – one ... read more CD

Chico FreemanTangents ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1984. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Surprisingly dark music for a mid 80s major label jazz album – especially one that features guest work from Bobby McFerrin! Chico Freeman's definitely keeping true to his adventurous roots here – blowing some sharply angular lines on a range of reeds, and exploring both older jazz ... read more CD

Sam MostMusically Yours ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $8.99

Russell GarciaWigville ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $8.99
Pure genius from Russ Garcia – one of our favorite arrangers of the 50s, and one of the few who could be modern, swinging, and surprisingly soulful at the same time! The set features Garcia's Wigville Band – a mid 50s ensemble that featured the leading lights of the west coast scene, ... read more CD

Herbie HarperHerbie Harper ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the most inventive albums we've ever heard from trombonist Herbie Harper – and that's saying a lot, given some of his other records! The group's an unusual one – with some key members that are likely – Jimmy Giuffre on tenor and baritone, Charlie Mariano on alto, and Jimmy ... read more CD

Smith-Glamann QuartetPoinciana ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the most unusual groups to ever record for Bethlehem Records in the 50s – a special combo that's led by Betty Glamann on harp and Rufus Smith on bass – and who work here with an airy sound that's pretty darn nice! Glamann beats Dorothy Ashby on the jazz harp by a few years, and ... read more CD

Joe PumaEast Coast Jazz ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the best records ever from guitarist Joe Puma – a player who offered his talents as a sideman on many great sessions of the 50s, but who really shines here as a leader on his own! Puma's got a clean, clear, careful touch on the strings – one that reminds us a lot of Tal Farlow ... read more CD

Frank SocolowSounds By Socolow ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $8.99
A real lost gem on Bethlehem Records – and one of the few albums to feature this tremendous saxophonist in the lead! Frank Socolow was one of the great unsung reed players of the 50s – and although he lay hidden in some of the larger combos of the early part of the decade, he ... read more CD

Dick WetmoreDick Wetmore ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $8.99
One of our favorite albums of violin jazz from the 50s – and one of the only sets we've seen from the obscure Dick Wetmore! Wetmore's got a tone that's a lot more sharp and a lot less sweet than some of his contemporaries – this kind of dark edge that's really unsettling at times, ... read more CD

Charlie MarianoCharlie Mariano Plays ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1953. New Copy ... $8.99
Brilliant early work from Charlie Mariano – key proof of his genius, and one of the main albums we'd recommend by him! The album has Charlie coming of his years in the Boston scene – boppish at some level, but blowing with a raspy soulfulness that really opens up his horn into new ... read more CD

Jerri WintersSomebody Loves Me ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $8.99
Jerri Winters gets some hip backings here – thanks to help from the Al Belletto Sextet, who almost share the star spotlight on the record as much as Jerri! The combo are perhaps best known for their 50s work on Capitol, but they sound equally great here – stepping out with a tight ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Red MitchellHappy Minors ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $8.99
A hell of a cooker from bassist Red Mitchell – a set that's got a sound that's way more mature and modern than you might guess from the image on the cover! Red's at the helm of a hip combo that also features sharp tenor from Zoot Sims and beautiful work on valve trombone from Bob Brookmeyer ... read more CD

Johnny RichardsSomething Else By Johnny Richards ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $8.99
Some of the best work ever from one of the most under-acknowledged jazz composers and arrangers of the 50s! Johnny Richards is probably best known for his recordings with Stan Kenton in the early part of the decade – but when he moved out on his own, he developed a tremendous sound that was ... read more CD

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956/1957/1958. New Copy ... $8.99
Searing early work from tenorist Eddie Lockjaw Davis – and a record that really shows the way that Lock was crucial in helping bring the Hammond organ into jazz! The sides were all cut in the mid 50s, right around the time of Jimmy Smith's rise at Blue Note – and feature Hammond from ... read more CD

Charlie ByrdWorld Of Charlie Byrd ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1960s/1973. New Copy ... $3.99 12.98
