Columbia/BGO (UK), 1986/1988. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of 80s albums from saxophonist Arthur Blythe – back to back in a single set!

Stanley ClarkeSchool Days ... CD
Columbia, 1976. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A massive hit for Stanley Clarke – a record that has him reigning in some of his wilder elements a bit, and going for a groove that's right in the pocket!

✨✧ Miles DavisESP ... CD
Columbia, 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album of dark and subtle beauty – and still one of our favorite Miles Davis albums of all time! The set's not as earth-shattering as some of Davis' other work of the 60s, but that's why we like it so much – because the emerging genius of the group with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, ... read more CD

Miles DavisFilles De Kilimanjaro (bonus track) ... CD
Columbia, 1969. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A dark blend of acoustic and electric modes from Miles Davis – a set that still has him working with elements of the classic 60s quintet, but which also brings in a stronger emphasis on electric piano too!

Columbia/Legacy, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock

Miles DavisMiles In The Sky (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1968. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Miles Davis makes the electric transition – in this groundbreaking set from the late 60s! The classic mid 60s quintet is still in place here – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – but the sound is looser, freer, and ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Miles DavisMiles Smiles ... CD
Columbia, 1966. New Copy ... $4.99 6.98
Miles Smiles, but his grin is a wry one – given the angular energy of the set! The album's a landmark effort from the mid 60s quintet that includes Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – all of whom work without fail to capture Davis' newly emerging approach to ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Miles DavisMilestones (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1958. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of our 50s favorites by Miles Davis – and a record that offers the same twin-sax sound as his classic Kind Of Blue – with both John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley working alongside Miles in the group! Rhythm here is by the Prestige-era trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Miles DavisOn The Corner ... CD
Columbia, 1972. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A sublime bit of Miles Davis electric funk – one of the best-remembered electric sets from the 70s, and for good reason too! The tracks are long, the jams are hard, and the whole thing has a lot more funk than some of the noise you'd get on other Miles albums of the time – thanks to ... read more CD

✨✧ Miles DavisSorcerer ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1967. New Copy ... $4.99 7.99
Another bold new direction for the legendary Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s – a set that has some of the angular styles of earlier albums, but also a bit more of the flowing grace to come in the electric years! A key illustration of this is the leadoff track "Prince Of Darkness" ... read more CD

Miles DavisTribute To Jack Johnson ... CD
Columbia, 1971. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A masterful tribute from one bad cat to another – and easily one of Miles Davis' greatest electric albums ever! The album's got a powerful, epic sort of feel – a renewed focus after the looser style of Bitches Brew, and the 70s live albums – and one that mixes a deeper funky ... read more CD
Also available Tribute To Jack Johnson ... CD 3.99

Miles DavisWater Babies ... CD
Columbia, 1967. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A much different album than you might expect from the cover – hardly the funky 70s set implied by the Big Fun-styled cover – and instead a lost slice of work from his groundbreaking late 60s years! The set was recorded in 1967, but unissued until Miles late 70s time away from the ... read more CD

A great little groover from keyboardist Charles Earland – and an album that definitely lives up to its title! There's plenty of street sounds going on here – lots of modern R&B modes that echo the changing styles of early 80s soul music, especially on the east coast! And as part ... read more CD

Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
An early US session from trumpeter Terumasa Hino – working here in a very long and stretched-out style – very much the most edgy modes of his earliest years! Tracks are all quite long, and really open up with fierce horn work – both from Hino on trumpet and flugelhorn, and from ... read more CD

Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An early hardbop gem from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – quite different than you might think from his more famous work of the 70s – with a rolling, soulful groove that would almost be at home on 60s Blue Note! Given Hino's chosen instrument, we'd probably link this one best to ... read more CD

One of the great ones from the young Terumasa Hino – a beautiful quartet session that really demonstrates his strength as a soloist on the trumpet!
