One of Cecil Taylor's most spiritual sessions of the 70s – a live set recorded in Yugoslavia in 1976, and done with this really open sound, but one that comes as much from the horns as it does from Cecil's piano!

Clifford ThorntonKetchaoua ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
An early gem from the great Clifford Thornton – maybe his best-known album over the years, thanks to its placement on the post-68 series of French free jazz releases on the BYG/Actuel label – but a set that's got a much more New York vibe overall, and stands as a key precursor to so ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Teri ThorntonTeri Thornton Sings Somewhere In The Night ... LP
Dauntless, 1963. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Obscure set of sexy vocal numbers, sung by Teri Thornton with some nice backing by Larry Wilcox and his orchestra. Thornton's got a polished style that resembles some of Sarah Vaughan's Mercury recordings of the mid and late 50s, and the backing is lush and dreamy, and works well with her voice. ...

Three SoulsDangerous Dan Express ... LP
Argo, 1964. Very Good- ... $9.99
Great little bit of lost Chicago grooviness. Not only is this a fantastic record by a tight group led by the legendary reedman Sonny Cox, but the cover and title bear reference to the Dan Ryan Expressway, which ripped through the south side like a scar in the early 60's. The cover's got the band ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Three SoundsBlack Orchid ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. Very Good- ... $14.99
Maybe the most evocative title of all the Three Sounds albums of the 60s – and one that really gets at the dark beauty of the entire record!

Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A killer album by the legendary soul jazz genius Bobby Timmons! The record is from one of Timmons' lesser-documented periods, when he was really opening up a lot, and going like mad on the keyboard, in a way that was even more spectacular than his early sessions with Art Blakey! The playing's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cal TjaderAlong Comes Cal ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
Great stuff – and very very groovy! Cal cut this record for Verve during the height of his swinging 60s Latin years – and he's working here with arranger Chico O'Farrill, who at the time, was perfectly suited for Cal's short, jaunty approach to a groove! The album's filled with nice ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A real standout session from Cal Tjader – a straight jazz side from the late 50s, recorded with a hip group that includes Vince Guaraldi on piano, Gene Wright on bass, and Al Torre on drums.

Great live work from Cal Tjader – one of a number of sets but at his home turf of the Blackhawk Nightclub in San Francisco!

Excellent Verve album that Cal recorded with the great Clare Fischer on organ and piano.
