One of the few albums ever recorded by Red Callender – a player who certainly speaks "low", given that his instrument here is the tuba!

A great bit of 70s electric work from Quincy – and probably his funkiest album ever!

Epic, 1978. Very Good ... $3.99
Some of Bobbi Humphrey's greatest work of the post-Blue Note years – an album that's filled with soulful fusion tunes throughout, all with a great focus on her funky flute! Bobbi also sings a bit on the set, but in a way that's pretty darn great – wonderfully sweet at times, with a bit ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Claus OgermanGate Of Dreams ... LP
Warner, 1977. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A pretty ambitious album from easy arranger Claus Ogerman – a hell of a talent, and the man who provided backings for some of our favorite albums! The album's kind of a "jazz meets orchestra" affair – done in the mode of some of Ogerman's backdrops for artists with a soloist ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry MulliganPresenting The Gerry Mulligan Sextet ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A strong 50s session from Gerry – a bit like some of his work for the Pacific Jazz label, but perhaps a bit more biting and modern. The group's a sextet with Jon Eardley on trumpet, Zoot Sims on tenor, Dave Bailey on drums, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, and Peck Morrison on bass – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittSo Doggone Good ... LP
Prestige, 1973. Very Good- ... $1.99
A standout acoustic set from the great Sonny Stitt – recorded during an early 70s stretch when he was doing a fair bit of work with electric players! The format here is great – and even though the instrumentation hearkens back to the earlier years of Sonny's career, there's a sense of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy BregmanDig Buddy In Hi Fi ... LP
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
Great work by a leader who hardly ever got to record on his own – the always-swinging Buddy Bregman, known best for his late 50s backings for singers on the west coast, but heard here in 2 great sessions cut under his own name! Dig Buddy In Hi Fi – a session that's a bit less jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Louis ArmstrongAmbassador Satch ... LP
Columbia, 1955. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Ambassador Satch is a key statement of Armstrong's global power in the postwar years, a time when the State Department was using his talents to mend fences and open doors after WWII. The material is Armstrong at his best comeback stretch – and most of these recall the classic sound of his ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar PetersonWest Side Story ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good ... $4.99
The West Side Story score – but handled here by the great Oscar Peterson Trio – in ways that really push the tunes past their Broadway roots! The approach is tight, soulful, and filled with strong lines from Peterson on piano – plus bass by Ray Brown and drums from Ed Thigpen ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene KrupaGene Krupa (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, Early 40s. Very Good ... $4.99
A nice little 50s album that compiles Gene's work from the early 40s – his groundbreaking early swing sides, some featuring singer Anita O'Day, others with the great Roy Eldridge on trumpet! Tunes are tight, lively, and feature some killer drum work (natch!) – and titles include "A ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vee Jay, 1961. Very Good ... $3.99
Classy supperclub vocals, with arrangements by Jimmy Jones, and some sweet polished singing from Bill Henderson.

Jerry Goodman & Jan HammerLike Children ... LP
Nemperor, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Despite the innocence of the title and cover image, the grooves here are pretty darn mature – really hard-jamming fusion tracks served up with Jerry Goodman on electric guitars and violin, and Jan Hammer on a wealth of groovy keyboards! Hammer's still a bit restrained at this point – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Manny AlbamManny Albam & His Jazz Greats Play Music From The Broadway Musical West Side Story (Coral) ... LP
Coral, 1958. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the many releases in the surprisingly successful semi-genre of "jazz meets West Side Story" albums that came out in the late 50s and early 60s. Albam actually does a pretty great job of opening up the jazzy changes in Bernstein's score, and it helps that he's got great ensemble ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & JJ JohnsonStan Getz & JJ Johnson Set 1957 (aka Stan Getz & JJ Johnson At The Opera House) ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good ... $3.99
A strange pairing – but that's sometimes what makes these Verve "pro meets pro" sets from the 50s so great. Getz and Johnson are backed by Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, and Connie Kay – and the tracks are longish, with plenty of solo room in the open jam session mode ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ ... $3.99
There's a pretty big space between Nothingness & Eternity – but Mahavishnu Orchestra manage to fill most of it up with their hard-jamming approach! The style here is a bit different than the group's initial albums – as the record's a live one, and features some very long tracks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime electric work from Ramsey Lewis!
