Elektra/Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Stunning work from the great second chapter of Patrice Rushen – the time when the lady moved over to Elektra Records and really opened up her groove!

Eddie RussFresh Out! ... CD
Jazz Masters/Soul Jazz (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99 22.99
A landmark bit of indie funk from the 70s – one of the few records cut by Detroit keyboardist Eddie Russ, and easily the best! The album features Russ going to town on electric piano – working with a hip combo called The Mixed Bag, which features some wicked work on flute and soprano ... read more CD

George RussellAt Beethoven Hall – Complete Recordings ... CD
MPS/Motor (Germany), 1965. Used ... $24.99
A rare moment in time – documented in this legendary meeting of two American modernists on the European scene of the 60s! The session features a 1965 performance by the George Russell Sextet, but is especially noteworthy for the presence of Don Cherry – making a key guest appearance on ... read more CD

Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... $9.99
Key work from the guy who put the "modern" in modern jazz – the great George Russell, heard here in the company of some younger players who definitely help him seek out some new territory in music! The record's got a wonderful balance between sharp edges and swing – a sound ... read more CD

George Russell SmalltetJazz Workshop ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1957. Used ... $8.99
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe! Russell's trying out some of his new tonal ideas here – and has a group that's very well-chosen for the project – with Art ... read more CD

SadisticsSadistics – The Best ... CD
Victor (Japan), 1980. Used ... $14.99
Forget the name of the group, because these guys are way too warm and smooth to be sadistic at all – and instead come across with all the best soulful qualities of the Japanese fusion scene at the end of the 70s! Most tracks have vocals, but there's also plenty of great work on guitar with a ... read more CD

Johnny's Disk/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $22.99
A tremendous live set from pianist Teru Sakamoto – a session that soars with all of the life, soul, and imagination of McCoy Tyner at his 70s best! The record's got a feel that's quite open – long tracks, with plenty of solo space for Sakamoto on the piano – but the sound is ... read more CD

Warner (Japan), 1976. Used ... $6.99
A damn great early moment from David Sanborn – a record that really shows the reedman at his best – working some tight solos over soulful backings in the same 70s manner as Tom Scott or Wilton Felder! Like both of those players, David's got the chops to step out in front of the ... read more CD

Concord, 2019. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Poncho Sanchez is a genius – one of the leading lights of the west coast Latin scene at the end of the 70s, and a musician who's never failed to give us his best over the decades – so much so, that he may well be one of the few (along with Eddie Palmieri) who've continued to keep the ... read more CD

Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
We loved the Phoenix album by keyboardist Javier Santiago – and although this set bills itself as if it's a relation to that record, it's more of a completely different effort – but one that's equally fantastic as well! Santiago is a tremendous up-and-coming talent – a hell of a ... read more CD

A wonderful continuation of the spirit of the previous collaboration between trumpet and flugelhorn player Susana Santos Silva and bassist Torbjorn Zetterberg – but a record that also adds in a cool extra element with the organ of Hampus Lindwall too! The music has this spacious, open ... read more CD

Kitty/We Want Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $18.99
Funky fusion from late 70s Japan – a set that's got a bit of vocals in the lead on some tracks, but which really opens up with some sweet keyboard-heavy instrumentation! There's almost a sharper, more soul-based groove here than on other Japanese sessions of the time – and the presence ... read more CD
