✨✧ Kenny Wheeler/Alan SkidmoreSwiss Radio Days Vol 28 – Kenny Wheeler & Alan Skidmore ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1978/1979. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Two 70s jazz giants, three different recordings, all of them wonderful! The set's a perfect showcase for both the trumpet of Kenny Wheeler and tenor of Alan Skidmore – as the recordings, done with the Jazz Live Trio of pianist Klaus Koenig, offer plenty of space for each soloist to stretch ... read more CD

Lenny WhiteBig City (remastered edition) ... CD
Nemperor/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A great little album by Lenny White – nicely restrained in the best moments, with less of the heavy-hitting fusion sound that you'd hear on his other albums – and even done with a strong current of funk, which really sends the whole thing home in a great way! Space jazz maestro Pat ... read more CD

Lenny WhiteVenusian Summer (remastered edition) ... CD
Nemperor/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Drummer Lenny White was one of the strongest talents on the kit to emerge during the 70s fusion years – a player who was every bit as tight and powerful as Billy Cobham, and maybe even more far-reaching in his style – as you might guess from the cosmic image on the cover! The album's ... read more CD

Modern Harmonic, Early 90s/2019. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A really surprising project from long-running Boston soul singer Barrence Whitfield – a set of songs from the Sun Ra side of the universe – delivered with a vibe that's a bit different than some of Whitfield's other material!

Zygmunt WicharyTalizman ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Hard-swinging trad jazz from the Polish scene of the postwar years – in a style that was as revolutionary to the Soviet-controlled culture as its later modern jazz and fusion moments! The group here is led by pianist Zygmunt Wichary, and works with a frenzied spirit that's a lot more intense ... read more CD

Mareike WieningMetropolis Paradise ... CD
Greenleaf, 2019. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Maybe the first album we've ever seen to feature drummer Marieke Wiening as a leader – but a set that fits in very nicely with the overall aesthetic of the Greenleaf label – in the way that the label's releases are always trying to push the further boundaries of jazz expression, but all ... read more CD

Elemental, 1991. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
Marvelous late work from tenorist Barney Wilen – the French reedman who first rose to fame in the late 50s, with crucial recordings with Miles Davis and Art Blakey – then really faded from view for most of the next few decades, before making a fantastic late life comeback, with a sound ... read more CD

Like the Barney album, ... read more CD

The great French tenor player, caught live at Newport in 1959 with backing by Toshiko Akioshi, Tommy Bryant, and Roy Haynes. The set's as boppish as you'd expect, with versions of Charlie Parker's "Passport", Monk's "Round Midnight", and Wilen's own "Barney's Tune". ... read more CD

Blue Note (Japan), 1962. Used ... $24.99
An excellent album by this lusty tenor player – and one of the rarest Blue Notes ever! Brother Don plays lean and mean, in a nice tight group that features Grant Green on guitar, Sonny Clark on piano, and Billy Higgins on drums – all of whom give Wilkerson a freer setting than he ever ... read more CD

EmArcy/Universal (Japan), 1955. Used ... $11.99
Don't get this John Williams confused with the bigger-name soundtrack composer of later years – because this set is pure piano jazz all the way through, played by an artist who shined briefly with Stan Getz in the mid 50s! Although little-known, Williams is a great link between bop and ... read more CD

✨✧ Mary Lou WilliamsMy Mama Pinned A Rose On Me ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1977. Used ... $4.99
Mary Lou Williams is dipping far back into her roots here – working in a very bluesy batch of styles, with only accompaniment from Buster Williams on bass to back her up! The tracks are all relatively shortish, and done in styles that stretch back to older modes of 20s and 30s jazz piano ... read more CD
