Guido SpannanocchiTerms & Conditions ... LP
Audioguido (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
A really beautiful little album – open and free at times, but also relatively rich in sound – almost in the territory of Sonny Rollins at the start of the 60s, but with a slightly more modern approach! This is maybe the first we've ever heard of alto saxophonist Guido Spannocchi ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Melvin SparksTexas Twister (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Eastbound/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
One of the funkiest albums ever from early 70s guitar wizard Melvin Sparks – his first for the short-lived Eastbound offshoot of Westbound, and done in a style that's even harder and rawer than his work for Prestige! The sound is lean and often a bit rough around the edges – with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

David SpinozzaSpinozza ... LP
A&M, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A soul fusion set from David Spinozza – a player who managed to cross over nicely, but never without losing the depth in his sound! The set features Spinozza in the lead on guitar, working in a soulful setting that's often laidback – rhythms stepping along gently, allowing for some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Heiner StadlerBrains On Fire ... LP
Musical Heritage Society, 1973. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Amazing sounds from Heiner Stadler – an artist who's not just remembered for his own work on piano, but for his great talent for choosing excellent players to work with! In fact, this album may well be best known for the musicians working with Heiner more than for his own talents – a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jeremy SteigEnergy ... LP
Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Excellent funky jazz from Jeremy Steig – the funkiest flute player we can think of!

Jeremy SteigFlute Fever ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
Fantastic early work from flautist Jeremy Steig – a 60s quartet session for Columbia that came several years before the funky style of some of his later work – and a damn great record, with lots of soulful touches! Part of this has to do with the rhythm section of Ben Tucker on bass ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jeremy SteigThis Is Jeremy Steig ... LP
Solid State, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
Pure greatness from Jeremy Steig – an album of funky flute tracks that really opened up whole new possibilities for the instrument!

Jason Stein is one of the few folks who can make a bass clarinet sound like a completely fierce instrument – a horn blown with the kind of frenzy and sonic power that most musicians would bring to a tenor – completely set free here in a fantastic trio with Jason Roebke on bass and Mike ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittNever Can Say Goodbye ... LP
Cadet, 1975. Very Good ... $3.99
Sonny Stitt in a sweet electric funk mode – working here in a style that's almost more CTI/Kudu than the usual Cadet Records groove!

✨✧ Sonny StittNow! ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $79.99
A tight swinger from Sonny Stitt – one of the standout 60s dates he recorded for the Impulse label, a place where he seemed to get even more care and focus in the studio! The record's got all the soulful swing of Stitt's classics for Roost, but also hits a slightly more lyrical groove at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label stereo pressing, with Van Gelder/Stereo stamps, including the Impulse inner sleeve. Cover looks great too, with just some wear on the back panel at the opening.)

Sonny StittOnly The Blues ... LP
Verve, 1957. Good+ ... $24.99
Probably the most classic of Stitt's sides for Verve – and certainly the one that gets rated time and time again by jazz collectors. We think it's pretty darn great – although we always wonder why folks don't give Stitt's other sides for Verve as much of a chance, because they're all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1961. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A classic from Stitt – cut during the underground days of the early 60s, when both he and Gene Ammons seemed to be recording for just about every jazz label around, and when they both seemed to be doing an awful lot of work in Chicago. This album was done in a flurry that Jug and Stitt cut ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittStomp Off Let's Go ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1976. Very Good ... $4.99
An unusual late record from the legendary Sonny Stitt – a set that's got some electricity in the group, but at a level that's not entirely funky jazz! Instead, the tracks are long, and feature some well-crafted solos from the leader – and the vibe here is loose at times, a bit like the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Cadet, 1966. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A twin-alto session that matches the sax of Sonny Stitt with that of Bunky Green – both set up in a tight little combo that includes some smoking work on Hammond by organist Odell Brown!

An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s!

Steeplechase (Denmark), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 35.99
A really sweet groover from obscure guitarist Monette Sudler – one of the few female players of the instrument we recall in 70s jazz! The set's got a freewheeling approach that's a bit spiritual soul jazz, but also has some angular touches that put Sudler in territory of some of the freer ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Philips (Japan), 1976. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Japanese pianist Kunihiko Sugano works here with some strings in the background – but also in a mode that's a lot hipper than you'd expect!

Soaring electric jazz from this hip 70s Polish combo – a group that's heavy on keyboards and soprano sax – both used to really stretch out on a number of long and jamming titles!

A seminal 70s session from British modernist John Surman – a record that exposed him to a much wider audience than the one he'd been getting in the avant jazz underground, and a record that's strongly build upon Surman's amazing ability to improvise in long, spiraling lines!
