Gerald WilsonOn Stage (80s pressing) ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1965. Sealed ... $4.99
The title's a weird one, because the album was recorded in the studio and not on stage – but we're hardly going to complain, because the record's so great!

Inner City, 1969. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A rare early gem from Joe Lee Wilson – the singer who's probably best known to the world for his performances on Archie Shepp's late Impulse recordings.
