Stones Throw, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
An impressive blend of jazz and hazy hip hop beatcraft from Kiefer – his best yet! We dug Kiefer's earlier Kickinit Alone a lot, too, but Happysad feels like a next level effort.

Roland Kirk's last album – and a return to traditional forms, as might be hinted at by the title!

WeJazz (Finland), 2015. Sealed Gatefold ... $8.99
One of the straightest jazz projects we've heard in years from Timo Lassy – a set that really gets back to the kind of soulful sounds we first loved in his music – served up here with a wicked 60s vibe, and plenty of organ in the mix!

A soulful late 60s outing for Brother Yusef – one of his first, and one of his best, albums for Atlantic!

Prestige, 1957. Very Good+ ... $26.99

Trip, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An insanely great record – filled with lots of odd twists and turns, and done in a really unusual way! The session is an obscure one that features Pharoah Sanders joining the tight combo, who are working here with a very different sound than usual! Earlier Latin Jazz Quintet albums have the ...
