✨✧ Frank WessFlute Of The Loom ... LP
Enterprise, 1973. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Frank Wess tries to join the funky flute crowd of the 70's by joining forces with a Muscle Shoals group of rhythm players to reach a deep Stax-like instrumental sound. It almost works, but not entirely, because the overall sound is pretty soft. The record's nice and cheap, so you can decide for ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Wess, Kenny Burrell, Joe Newman & OthersJazz For Playboys ... LP
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! The album is leader-less in its billing – but only because all the players are so well tuned to each other, and have such a simpatico ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Westlake College QuintetCollege Goes To Jazz ... LP
Decca, 1956. Very Good ... $24.99
A hipper group than you'd expect – especially since they're all college kids! John Graas found these guys playing at Westlake College, and he rightly thought they had a sound that was well worth recording for Decca – not surprising, since these guys have a similar chamber modern groove ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Clarence WheelerNew Chicago Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $8.99
No blues at all – despite the title – and a great set of tracks that showcases the southside Chicago tenor roots of Clarence Wheeler! The album's a bit different than the first two Wheeler albums for Atlantic – in that the group's slightly bigger, and more 70s electric overall ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Steve WhiteJazz Mad – The Unpredictable Steve White ... LP
Liberty, 1955. Very Good ... $3.99
Definitely one of the more compelling Liberty jazz albums from the 50s – a quartet date with tenor and a bit of vocals from Steve White – a really overlooked player on the postwar LA scene! Titles include "Beside A Sea", "Stopped You See", "April Showers", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kuba WiecekMultitasking ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 2019. New Copy ... $19.99
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! Kuba's a hell of a talent on his instrument – and blows with a sharply angular mode that we'r ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bob WilberFor Saxes Only! ... LP
Music Minus One, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the hippest MMO sets ever recorded – one featuring a sax section that includes Hilton Jefferson, Seldon Powell, Bob Wilber, Jerome Richardson, and Danny Bank.

Joe WilderPretty Sound ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Don't be too put off by the title – which might make you think that the album's a bunch of flowery instrumentals – because it's actually a pretty strong set of tunes from trumpeter Joe Wilder, recorded with a bit of polish, to be sure, but in a way that lets him take the lead, solo-wise. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ill Considered (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from this offshoot of the Ill Considered group – a freewheeling trio that features Idris Rahman on saxes and flute, Leon Brichard on bass, and Tom Skinner on drums – a combo that comes together in a very spiritual way! The bass and drums often build up cyclical rhythms ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney WilenJazz Sur Seine ... LP
Philips (France), 1958. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A fantastic early recording from the great French tenor saxophonist Barney Wilen!

Sublime later work from French saxophonist Barney Wilen – working here with pianist Alan Jean-Marie, an artist that we totally love on his own!

Timeless/Pony Canyon (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $49.99
One of the best later albums by French tenor genius Barney Wilen – a true gem that's far better than the title might indicate! The tunes, as you might guess, are all themes from French films – stretching back to the late 50s jazz/new wave days, when Wilen recorded on a few brilliant ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rainbow Blonde, 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 29.99
We first fell in love with Ben Williams as a bassist – but here, he's equally a vocalist – stepping out with a richly soulful vibe we never would have expected a few years back!

EMI (Japan), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $46.99
Finnish soul, by an American singer – not the same Charles Williams that you might know from 70s jazz funk albums – but an even earlier talent, really shining brightly here in a soulful Scandinavian setting!

Joe WilliamsMan Ain't Supposed To Cry ... LP
Roulette, 1957. Very Good ... $4.99
A vocal jazz classic! Joe Williams had come to great fame as the singer with the Basie band during the 50s, but this beautiful album is unlike his usual work with the group – and shows a sophisticated vocal side of Joe that's really amazing. The album was arranged by Jimmy Mundy, with lush ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Williams & Harry Sweets EdisonTogether ... LP
Roulette, 1961. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A gem of a record from this pair of Basie-ites – one that allows Joe Williams to hit some different modes than on his fuller records with the Count – set up here in a nicely relaxed groove with trumpeter Harry Sweets Edison! Arrangements are by Ernie Wilkins, but are more laidback than ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

John WilliamsJohn Williams Trio ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good ... $6.99
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! Although little-known, Williams is a great link between bop and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

The first solo project from Kamaal Williams – and a wonderfully spiritual set that has the keyboardist really blowing us away with his talents!

A great little record from alto saxophonist Norman Williams – also known as The Bishop – and the first record on the mighty Theresa label too!

Startling!
