Riverside, 1961. Very Good+ ... $6.99
These guys are the Mangione Brothers – but don't hold that against them! This album's a great one – with a young Gap and Chuck, joined by Sal Nistico on tenor – all of them playing in an edgey, almost modern mode that's very different than any of their later work.

A killer album! The Harold Johnson Sextet were an incredible little LA soul jazz combo during the late 60s.

Barney KesselKessel/Jazz – Contemporary Latin Rhythms ... LP
Reprise, 1961. Very Good ... $11.99
A wonderful wonderful set from Barney Kessel – bossa-inflected jazz, and a wonderful setting for Barney to hit some very groovy lines on electric guitar! The group on the date is part of the strength of the record – with Conte Candoli on trumpet, Emil Richards on vibes, Paul Horn on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney KesselLet's Cook! ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $6.99
Well, if you've ever heard Barney play guitar, you know that he doesn't always cook – or at least not as hotly as other players – but this album is a nice batch of tracks that goes way beyond Kessel's usual uptight sound. Most of the cuts are very long, and they feature open-ended jam ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney KesselSome Like It Hot ... LP
Contemporary, 1959. Very Good ... $24.99
A pretty nice jazz tribute to the Billy Wilder film of the same name – and one that reprises a number of tunes from the film, especially popular songs of the 20s – but brings them back in a way that's still got plenty of hip 50s jazz touches! The record's nicely without the hoke that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney KesselTo Swing Or Not To Swing – Barney Kessel Vol 3 ... LP
Contemporary, 1955. Good+ ... $5.99
Given Barney's touch on the guitar, you can bet that a record like this hardly could claim "not to swing" – and the session's a tight groover done in a way that clearly marks Kessel as one of the best guitar talents of his generation! The recording quality of the album is wonderful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney Kessel/Shelly Manne/Ray BrownPoll Winners – Straight Ahead ... LP
Contemporary, 1975. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A rare 70s reunion for the Poll Winners trio of Barney Kessel, Ray Brown, and Shelly Manne – one that has them all looking a bit shaggy on the cover, but still plenty darn tight in the grooves of the record! There's a really nice change here from the earlier sound of the group – longer ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Calvin KeysCriss Cross ... LP
Ovation, 1976. Very Good+ ... $39.99
Post-Black Jazz recording by Calvin Keys, but still for the same parent label (Ovation), and still with the same sort of feel. Kirk Lightsey's on piano, Henry Franklin's on bass, and Leon Chancelor's on drums, and Keys' guitar sounds great next to sax solos by Charles Owens. Deep grooves include ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Morgana KingSings The Blues ... LP
Mercury, 1956. Very Good ... $14.99
Early work by Morgana King – much more straightforward than some of her later records, but still done in that incredible vocal style that makes her one of the most unique jazz singers of her generation. The record's got an intimate honesty that's handled with small group backings in that ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Teddi KingNow In Vogue ... LP
Storyville, 1955. Very Good+ ... $43.99
One of a number of great small group sessions done by singer Teddi King for the Storyville label – nicely relaxed, with backing from a septet that features Billy Taylor on piano, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Gene Quill on alto!

Teddi KingTo You From Teddi King ... LP
RCA, 1955. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Sweet 50s vocals from Teddi King – a set that's arranged with a fuller style than her small combo sessions from the time – but which still shows her to be one of the most distinctive singers of her time! Teddi's got a voice that's much richer than you'd guess from her small frame ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
A great 70s album by Roland Kirk – one that features him working on a lot of short tracks, in a pretty crazy style! A number of the tracks feature Kirk's uniquely quirky reed style in full effect – often processed with added studio techniques, in a very nice way.

Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roland KirkWe Free Kings ... LP
Mercury, 1961. Very Good ... $19.99
One of Roland Kirk's classic early recordings for Mercury, and the kind of stuff that has him mixing his wild reed playing with more traditional hardbop structures. Most of the tracks are quartet sides, with piano, bass, and drums backing Kirk up – but the real focus is on Kirks solos, which ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Moe KoffmanCool & Hot Sax ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
An early effort from saxman Moe Koffman – a much straighter jazz record than some of his later funk, flute, and cosmic groove experiments – and a nice one at that! The album features Koffman mostly on tenor, leading a septet of Canadian players in a set of tightly arranged titles that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kama Sutra, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A trippy trippy bit of funk from Moe Koffman – recorded after his big "Swinging Shepherd" instrumental hit of the early 60s – but a few years before his more experimental sessions of the 70s! The style here is mod hippie 60s flute jazz – with Moe blowing in a soul jazz ... (Soul, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Great Konitz work recorded in Italy – definitely in that "cut above" mode you get with the Horo label!

Verve, 1957. Very Good ... $24.99
A slightly different album than usual for Lee Konitz in the 50s – one that's got a bit harder edge, and which has Lee working in a group with a trumpet! The set's performed by a quintet that includes Konitz usual suspects Sal Mosca on piano and Peter Ind on bass, along with Shadow Wilson on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Campi (Italy), 1968. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of two albums that Lee Konitz cut with the trio of Marial Solal in 1968 – originally issued only very briefly in Europe on the small Campi label, and some of Konitz' most groundbreaking work of the 60s!

A great concert recorded in London in 1976, but which has all the classic flavor of the great Konitz/Marsh work of the 50s! In fact, this session may go those sessions even better, as it has the twin tenor giants playing in a piano-less group, with only Peter Ind on bass and Al Levitt on drums. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hat Hut, 1980. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The kind of session you might be more likely to find on the MPS label than the Hat Hut one – with kind of an arch-modernist sound, instead of a totally free one!

Wonderfully fluid work from Polish pianist Mieczyslaw Kosz – an artist who's clearly trained with the proficiency of a classical musician, but who's playing here with an open, swinging, jazz-based mode!

One of the more obscure 60s albums cut by jazz vocalist Irene Kral – and a great little record that shows her to be more of a singer than we expected!

Funky fusion from guitarist Volker Kriegel – working here on a mid 70s session for MPS – not as totally far out as his earlier sessions for the label, but in a way that makes up for the difference with plenty of funk!
