Sun RaAntique Blacks ... LP
Art Yard/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Amazing work from Sun Ra – record that really features a great range of sounds and styles, and a heck of a lot of soul as well! Ra plays some especially nice rocksichord on the set – that freaky, fuzzy keyboard that comes off sounding like a guitar, even though it's played with keys ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaAstro Black (colored vinyl) ... LP
Impulse/Modern Harmonic, 1973. New Copy ... $24.99 25.99
One of the darkest Sun Ra albums of the early 70s – and a set that's also a bit unusual in his catalog as well! The album was issued during Ra's run with Impulse Records – a period that mostly saw the label reissue previous records from the Saturn catalog – save for a rare few ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Saturn/Modern Harmonic, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
An obscure session from Sun Ra and the Arkestra, and a great one too – a set that's maybe a bit different than some of their other material from the time! The album's from the early 80s, but maybe feels a bit more like the group in the late 50s – when they were in Chicago, and first ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaCosmos ... LP
Inner City, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of the best-remembered Sun Ra albums from the 70s – a really cool little session that features Ra playing the unusual "rocksichord" all the way through! The instrument's a very weird one – kind of like a messed-up electric piano, with lots of cool broken notes and a weird ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Saturn/Modern Harmonic, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.99
A really wonderful album from Sun Ra and the Arkestra – recorded during their early 70s relationship with Impulse Records, but rejected by the label at the time – because the sound was too far ahead of its time! That lack is our gain, though – as the session's gone onto legendary ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A lost slice of work from Sun Ra's early 70s years on Impulse Records – one of the few new recordings created for his association with that label (most of the titles were reissues of earlier Saturn albums) – but one that was never issued at the time!

If this is disco, point us in the direction of Studio 54! The album's one of Ra's greatest from the 70s – recorded in Italy in 1978, and featuring some incredibly otherworldly keyboards that are some of his most enigmatic on record!

A rare live set from the later years of Sun Ra – and one that maybe goes a bit more outside at points than some of the titles of the time that saw wider commercial release!

Incredible work from one of Sun Ra's most enigmatic periods!

A stone classic – and one of the wilder, more electronic albums from Sun Ra – a set that has him playing on "two moog synthesizers" – which both sound as if they're going at the same time! The rest of the group is quite small – with only John Gilmore, Marshall ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Enrique RodriguezLo Que Es (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Extra Lovely, 2019. New Copy ... $14.99 20.00
A really beautiful record by young Chilean pianist Enrique Rodriguez – a set that's got little more going on than piano and keyboards, but which really makes the most of those elements! Rodriguez plays in a style that's not entirely jazz – maybe more moody instrumentals with a slight ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Shorty RogersWizard Of Oz & Other Harold Arlen Songs ... LP
RCA, 1959. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A pretty darn great record, and a lot more swinging than you'd expect!

Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins & The Big Brass ... LP
Metrojazz, 1958. Very Good ... $14.99
A strange one, and from this perspective, it seems like a crazy decision to pair modernist tenorist Sonny Rollins with a set of large brassy arrangements. Oddly, though, the idea works, and works nicely – as Rollins' edgey solos cut through the heavy arrangements with ease, creating some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A tremendous little album from Sonny Rollins – one of his most sharp-edged sessions of the mid 60s, and a bold departure from some of his previous work for RCA!

Larry Rose plays some mighty sweet keyboards on this late 70s set – electric piano, organ, and other keys as well – and also sings a fair bit on the record, in this great blend of jazz, soul, and some tighter modes of the time!
