Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
A killer little set from bassist Chubby Jackson – a great example of why his groups were always some of the tuffest in large combo jazz at the time!

Impulse/ABC, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
Way nicer than some of Milt's earlier work – and one of the gems he recorded with bassist Ray Brown during the late 60s.

Metronome (Denmark), 1979. Very Good+ ... $6.99

One of the few albums ever recorded by one of our favorite alto players of the 50s!

Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good ... $18.99
One of the hippest, hardest albums that trombonist JJ Johnson ever cut for Columbia – a session we'd rank right up there with his amazing JJ Inc record, and like that one a really cooking hardbop record that maybe even rivals the best on Blue Note and Prestige at the time!

One of the few albums ever cut by reedman Rudolph Johnson – a hell of a saxophonist, and one with a great ability to combine the spiritual with the searing – a bit like Joe Farrell at his CTI best, but not as freewheeling – nicely focused, and a little bit funky in all the right ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great little record – partly for the piano work of Ed Kelly, but also for some killer sax work by Pharoah Sanders, who's the "friend" listed in the title!

An overlooked gem from west coast vibist Ricky Kelly – a player who only cut a small number of records, but who was kind of an 80s equivalent to some of the hippest Bobby Hutcherson work of the 70s!

One of the best of Stan's mid 70s albums – a very hip set of big band tracks that swings with a fluid and soulful approach that you wouldn't normally associate with the Kenton groove!
