✨✧ Grover Washington JrTime Out Of Mind ... CD
Columbia, 1989. Used ... Out Of Stock
Time Out Of Mind's title track is a cover of the Steely Dan classic, circa Gaucho – and this album finds Grover embracing the 80s a lot more than his previous album for Columbia. A mix of moods, with some electric funky flourishes and fusiony keys and synths. Titles include "Jamaica&quo ... read more CD

Sadao WatanabeSwing Journal Jazz Workshop 2 – Dedicated To Charlie Parker (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1969. Used Gatefold ... $29.99
A great little session from this excellent Japanese alto player – and although the title and track list might make you think that the record's a straight run of classic bop tunes, it's actually got a lot of Watanabe's modal groove and a very nice edgey feel that pushes it way past the regular ... read more CD

Columbia, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked bit of 70s big band jamming – one of a few great sides cut for Columbia by trombonist Bill Watrous, done in a mode that's partially like the funky Maynard Ferguson records for the label at the time, but which also has some of the hipper and more expansive approaches that you'd ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia/Get On Down, 1976. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
A funky fusion classic from guitarist Wah Wah Watson – his only album as a leader, despite countless appearances as a sideman on 70s soul, jazz, and pop sessions!

Weather ReportSweetnighter ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Weather Report – an album that has them picking up a bit more soul than before, and shaking off some of the experimental sounds of their roots – yet all in a way that still makes them one of the most revolutionary fusion combos of the time!

Columbia, 1959. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Pianist Teddy Wilson might well be called one of the founding fathers of modern jazz – an artist who'd already been recording for a few decades by the time of this late 50s set, but one who was still very much at the top of his game!

Although Paul Winter, like Paul Horn, later went on to do some lousy hippy dippy jazz work that verged on nausea, at the early part of his career, also like Horn, he managed to have a very open minded style that let him sample a number of different influences, and weave them into a colorful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
