George Wein's Newport All StarsGeorge Wein's Newport All Stars ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Although the name of George Wein is usually associated with some super un-hip trad jazz projects, this album's actually a pretty cool batch of grooves that matches Wein's older jazz tendencies with some newer styles of playing – and some good electric instrumentation on the best cuts.

Savoy, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of those classic 50s sessions in which a bunch of Count Basie players split off from the bigger group and do some great small combo work on their own!

Deram/Audio Clarity (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
The brilliant 3rd album from Mike Westbrook – a sharp-edged, two volume set with a scathing anti-war theme!

Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 2019. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Kuba Wiecek is definitely multitasking a bit here – adding in some electronics to his own work on alto sax – but never losing the sharp edge that made us like his previous record so much!

Don't get this John Williams confused with the bigger-name soundtrack composer of later years – because this set is pure piano jazz all the way through, played by an artist who shined briefly with Stan Getz in the mid 50s!
