Taste (Italy), 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the most unusual albums we've ever heard from Italian pianist Enrico Intra – and that's saying a lot, given his legacy of creative sounds from the 70s onward!

A cool meeting of talents – and one that makes for some of the grooviest Count Basie material of the 70s!

Robin KenyattaNomusa ... LP
Muse, 1975. Near Mint- ... $9.99
An early Muse session by Robin Kenyatta – and a record that's probably one of his best of the 70s.

Robin KenyattaStompin' At The Savoy ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Sealed ... $6.99
A great blend of older jazz styles and the sweet 70s funk of Robin Kenyatta – served up with a hip sort of sparkle overall! There's a few familiar jazz modes in here that definitely live up to the spirit of the title – but most of the record is more open, laidback, and somewhat ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Barney KesselWorkin' Out ... LP
Contemporary, 1961. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Much more interesting than some of Barney's earlier records – possibly because he's working with a hip, flexible combo – one that includes Marv Jenkins on piano and flute, Jerry Good on bass, and Stan Popper on drums. The tracks are a mix of groovers and mellow numbers – with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

KieferHappysad ... LP
Stones Throw, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
An impressive blend of jazz and hazy hip hop beatcraft from Kiefer – his best yet! We dug Kiefer's earlier Kickinit Alone a lot, too, but Happysad feels like a next level effort. Jazz piano really stands out as the leading light in the sound here – it's the real thing, too – ... (Hip Hop, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

King CurtisDoing The Dixie Twist ... LP
Tru Sound/Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Quite a groovy early album from King Curtis – one that's got a strange little gimmick, but one that works wonderfully! The "dixie twist" theme means that King's taking older standards associated with the south, and playing them in a fast-crackling, highly rhythmic style that has ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Stunt (Denmark), 2019. New Copy ... $24.99 29.98
Drummer Snorre Kirk has a great musical partner here – tenorist Stephen Riley, who blows with this warm, raspy tone that takes us back to classic Ben Webster in the postwar years! The pace of most tunes is nicely laidback, but never in a way that's too sloppy or loose – as Kirk's combo ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John KlemmerInvolvement ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Beautiful early work from John Klemmer – one of the most under-rated talents of his generation, and a great player who frequently gets overlooked because of his later, smoother work.

John KlemmerMagnificent Madness ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Nothing too mad from reedman John Klemmer – but a set that nicely continues that spacey sound that Klemmer first created at Impulse Records, then moved into some warmer, more soulful territory on records like this!

Steve Lacy had plenty of fantastic moments on the European scene of the 70s – but this unique album may well stand as one of his best!
