✨✧ Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Explores The Music Of Henry Mancini ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Quincy Jones meets Henry Mancini – and the result is an album that's as groovy as it is jazzy – every bit as wonderful as you might expect, and with a few surprising touches as well! Given that Mancini's tunes are already pretty darn great on their own – and plenty jazzy too ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Quincy JonesSmackwater Jack ... LP
A&M, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A great bit of 70s electric work from Quincy – and probably his funkiest album ever! Quincy's really stepping out here from the straighter and spacier styles of earlier records – going for more of the dirty grooves he was cutting up for soundtrack albums, and hitting notes that were a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Clifford JordanStarting Time ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Sealed ... $19.99
A great early Clifford Jordan record, and a tight bit of jazz from this great Chicago tenor player. Another Chicago favorite, Wilbur Ware, is on bass, and a young Cedar Walton's playing piano, and with warmth like that, Jordan and trumpeter Kenny Dorham sound great next to each other.

Atlantic/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 44.99
An odd little album from tenorist Clifford Jordan – but a great one too, given the unique format! As the title implies, Cliff pays tribute to Leadbelly – handling a host of Huddie Ledbetter originals, but in a style that's kind of 60s soul jazz, with a bit of blues as well – one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia (Japan), 1974. Very Good+ ... $33.99
A great set from Japanese vocalist Kimiko Kasai – recorded live with spare backing by the Cedar Walton trio, in a mode that's quite different than her better-known 70s electric set with Herbie Hancock!

A hokey title, but a nice little set – one of Stan's under-rated cookers for his own Creative World label from the 70s!
