Willis JacksonBoss Shoutin' ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $19.99
Killer work from Gator! The album was recorded during his prime mid-60s period – when it seemed like he just couldn't miss, and when he was working with a great group that included Carl Wilson on organ and Pat Azzara on guitar. The tracks on this one are long, with a great rolling McDuff-ish ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Willis JacksonShuckin' ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
A sharp groover from Willis Jackson! Tough to find on wax, this early 60's session takes Willis' mean tenor sound, and adds a nice bossa groove to it – in a style that's similar to Ike Quebec's Samba Soul LP. There's lots of extra percussion, thanks to Montego Joe and Juan Amalbert of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonTell It ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of Willis' excellent groovers from the mid 60s – cut with his super-hip group that featured Pat Azzara on guitar and Carl Wilson on organ, augmented by trumpet from Frank Robinson and drums by Joseph Hadrick. The tunes are mostly simple numbers, but Jackson handles them with a tight ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Illinois JacquetGo Power! ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Go Power indeed – as the album's a really stripped down groover, and one that has the tenor of Illinois Jacquet working in spare trio formation with Milt Bucker on Hammond and Alan Dawson on drums! The record's got a sound that's even earthier than some of Jacquet's other work for Argo ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Illinois JacquetMessage ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A really hard groover from Illinois Jacquet's later years on Chess – a solidly smoking session that features plenty of organ and guitar! There's a gutbuckety groove here that's a lot like some of Willis Jackson's best work on Prestige at the time – a style that's based around the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Illinois Jacquet & Ben WebsterKid & The Brute ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
The title's a bit misleading – as a number of the tracks on here were recorded by Jacquet, and Webster only sat in on two longer jamming numbers – "I Wrote This For The Kid" and "The Kid & The Brute". Not that that's a problem – as those long numbers take ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Beautiful work from Jamal's early Chicago years – and a perfectly titled set that really gets at the differences he made in modern jazz! The tunes are wonderfully fluid, soulful, and swinging – but not in the gutbuckety style of other trios of the time, more in a lightly modern style ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ahmad JamalPoinciana ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
The tune "Poinciana" must have been written by Jamal – as the lyrical flowing style of the song is perfect for his deeply soulful piano style. It wasn't, though – although this recording of the tune has made it one of the biggest in Jamal's book from the time, a perpetual ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CTI, 1976. Very Good ... $4.99
Dark genius from keyboardist Bob James – one of his seminal 70s classics for CTI!
