Sonny CrissMemorial Album ... LP
Xanadu, 1947/1950/1952/1965. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Very early work from Sonny Criss – cut during his young years in the LA bop scene, featuring a number of different groups all dating from 1947 to 1965. Criss does a fine job, blowing effortlessly in a style that's clearly Bird-inspired, but which has a raspy genius of its own. Players ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, light wear, with a small sticker and a bit of pen on back.)

Sonny CrissSonny Criss Plays Cole Porter ... LP
Imperial, 1956. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Sonny Criss plays Cole Porter – and the results are way greater than the sum of the parts – even though those parts are already pretty darn great! Criss' alto sax has a superb tone at this time – razor-sharp, and nicely crisp – yet still filled with warmth that sets it ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(90s Japanese Toshiba-EMI pressing, with obi and insert.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CrusadersCrusaders At Their Best ... LP
Motown, 1973. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A really mixed bag of grooves from the Crusaders – but still an album that's quite tasty if you dig their work on the Chisa label! The record appears to be a greatest hits collection – with the "best" in the title – but it's more a summation of the styles they'd been ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
CrusadersRhapsody & Blues ... LP
MCA, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $3.99
The Crusaders at their late 70s smooth jazz best – completely confident in the sound of their groove, and unabashedly working in a tight studio setting on longer tracks that helped forever change the sound of mainstream funky jazz! And yes, the edges are polished down from the group's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersScratch ... LP
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1974. Very Good ... $1.99
A great Crusaders album – and one that's a perfect bridge between their earlier soul jazz styles, and their tighter funkier electric one. The record was recorded live at the Roxy, and the group is augmented by Larry Carlton on guitar, who gives the tracks a nice razor edge at his best ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersStreet Life ... LP
MCA, 1979. Very Good ... $3.99
One of our favorite albums ever from The Crusaders – a set that really sums up all the tightness they'd forged in the 70s, while still showing a new sense of soul and funk as well – expertly balanced with flawless LA production! The album may well be the group's equivalent of a Steely ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
Also available Street Life ... CD 4.99

CSB JazzWriters Album 1981/1982 – No Clams Allowed ... LP
CSB Jazz, 1982. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A hipper than usual college jazz album – one that hails from Cal State Bakersfield, and features lots of original tunes by all the different members! There's no later-famous players here that we can spot, but the music is all pretty great! LP, Vinyl record album
(Back cover has an inscription in pen.)

Ted CursonI Heard Mingus ... LP
Interplay, 1980. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Of course Ted heard Mingus – he was in the guy's band! But more than most, Ted really did "hear" Mingus – and even though he only spent a short time working with the great bassist, Ted absorbed a heck of a lot of Mingus' best modes of expression – dangling precariously ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ted CursonTears For Dolphy ... LP
Black Lion/Arista Freedom, 1964. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Fantastic work from the team of Ted Curson and Bill Barron – a rare French session from 1964, one that captures all the brilliance of their American work from the early 60s! The set features the pair playing in an extremely fragmented mode – no doubt inspired by the recent loss of Eric ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Festival (Australia), 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
2 LP set featuring some of the best work of this funky Australian big band! Tracks culled from most of their 70's albums, including their version of "Shaft" and the hard swingin' "Col's Dilemma". And we should warn you – the inside of the gatefold cover features the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tadd DameronClassics Of Modern Jazz Vol 3 – The Tadd Dameron Band ... LP
Jazzland, Late 40s/1962. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Very sharp LP issue of some of the legendary late 40's bop recordings that were cut in New York under the leadership of Tadd Dameron! The groups are all pretty darn smoking, and the record features some classic work by Fats Navarro, Allan Eager, and Kenny Clarke. Tracks are longer than the usual ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny DankworthLifeline ... LP
Philips (UK), 1973. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Pretty great jazzy work from Johnny Dankworth – one of the hipper Brit bandleaders of the 60s, working here in a sweet 70s mode that reminds us of some of the larger MPS projects of the same time. The tracks have a bit of an electric glow in the basswork and production, but the main focus is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Danser's Inferno (John Danser)Creation One ... LP
Lirs/Everland (Austria), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
That's "Danser", not "dancer" – as in John Danser, who's also best known for a groovy jazz album under his own name! This sweet little set from the early 70s may well be John's best album ever – a wonderful blend of funky grooves and these wonderful raspy vocals ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
DarjiDarji Meets Hank Jones ... LP
Timeless (Netherlands), 1983. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Darji may not be the best-known player in jazz, but we really love his music on the small handful of records he made like this! The leader plays vibes – often with this full, chromatic tone that takes us back to some of the earlier expressionists on the instrument – yet with more of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jack DaughertyJack Daugherty & The Class Of Nineteen Hundred & Seventy One ... LP
A&M, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
A lost treasure from A&M – a very hip set of big band jazz from LA, played by a group that's stuffed with great underground players. Hal Blaine is on drums, as is Paul Humphrey, and other players include Joe Pass, Dennis Budimir, Don Menza, Larry Carlton, and other likely suspects from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Wolfgang DaunerRischkas Soul ... LP
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99
A fantastic album from German keyboard giant Wolfgang Dauner – and maybe one of the few to perfectly balance both his soul jazz roots and his later trippier style! The music here is very groovy – much more in the mode of MPS Records electric jazz sets of the time than you'd guess from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
