Creative Arts EnsembleOne Step Out ... LP
Nimbus/Outernational (UK), 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $34.99
A great bit of work from the hip LA scene that centered around the Nimbus label at the end of the 70s – a collective who work together here with the same spiritual jazz modes you'd find on labels like Tribe or Strata East! The group features some bigger names from the scene, including some ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny CrissI'll Catch The Sun ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Excellent material from Sonny Criss' late 60's comeback period! By this point, Criss had a sound, style, and maturity that was unmatched by any of his LA contemporaries – a way of blowing the alto that was neither boppish, nor cliched in R&B modes – and instead burst forth with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue circle logo label stereo pressing. Cover has some sooty residue along the top seam and spine.)

CrusadersFree As The Wind ... LP
MCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The Crusaders are really going strong at this point – in near-hit status, almost acting as the Steely Dan of LA jazz. The sound is certainly slicker than before, but in a way that's actually pretty darn nice – as Joe Sample, Wilton Felder, Stix Hooper, and Larry Carlton come together ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersStreet Life ... LP
MCA, 1979. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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

CrusadersThose Southern Knights ... LP
Blue Thumb/ABC, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
Apart from the title's terrible pun on the Glenn Campbell hit of the mid 70s, this album's a real treat – a very soulful batch of smooth funky jazz tunes by The Crusaders, who by this point have fully emerged to claim the throne of the pop soul jazz genre they virtually invented. The record's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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 CursonTed Curson & Co (aka Blue Piccolo) ... LP
India Navigation, 1976. Sealed ... $39.99
One of the hippest records ever cut by trumpeter Ted Curson – and that's saying a lot, because all his records are pretty darn hip! Curson's working in a quartet with Jim McNeely on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Steve McCall on drums – and the group's a lot tighter than some of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A searing live set from London's Cykada – recorded in that city's hotbed of new jazz activity, the Total Refreshment Centre – which must have been really abuzz on the night of this show!

Hardly a dance band – and instead a quartet with Mike Westbrook on piano, Peter Whyman on saxes and clarinet, Brian Godding on guitar, and Kate Westbrook on voice, piccolo, and tenor horn!

Ujamaa, 2009. New Copy ... $19.99

Eddie DanielsBrief Encounter ... LP
Muse, 1977. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A compelling 70s set from reedman Eddie Daniels – a lot darker than some of his smoother jazz sides to come! There's a feel here that's almost in the CTI camp, but a bit spacier overall – as Daniels' work on flutes, tenor, and clarinet comes into play nicely with Fender Rhodes and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny DankworthFive Steps To Dankworth ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An early gem from Johnny Dankworth – the hard-swinging British arranger who'd release some great work on these shores in the 60s! Five Steps To Jazzis- slightly unusual in that all of the arrangements (and most compositions) are by Dankworth, but half of them are played by the Laurie Monk ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roulette, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Incredible early work from British leader Johnny Dankworth – jazz work that's as fluid and grooving as his best 60s soundtrack sessions, and cut with an early sense of power that's really great!

Sweet smooth electric jazz from Jack Daugherty – a nice little indie set from the Monterey scene, a surprisingly nice setting for California jazz in the 70s!

Searing early work from tenorist Eddie Lockjaw Davis – and a record that really shows the way that Lock was crucial in helping bring the Hammond organ into jazz!

Lockjaw and Johnny Griffin cut a pile of excellent albums together during the early 60s, but this one's one of our favorites!

Classic tenors head-to-head – as Griff & Lock lay out one of their excellent 2 tenor classics from the early 60s!

Don't pass this one up!
