Long, lean live energy from Art Blakey and a well-remembered version of The Jazz Messengers – a group that includes both Branford Marsalis on alto and Wynton Marsalis on trumpet – plus great tenor from Bill Pierce as well! The vibe is nicely different than the 60s years of the group ... read moreCD

A great trio here – with Cecil McBee on bass and Al Foster on drums! CD
A laidback quintet date from Gary Burton – one that almost returns us to the warm hues of his best early work in the 60s! The record's awash in Burton's famous tone on the vibes – a very color-sensitive approach to the instrument that resonates nicely amidst a setting that includes ... read moreCD

Miles Davis and his Quartet doing their thing at the 1963 Monterey Jazz Fest – a previously unreleased set that finds Miles & Co in peak live form!

Heat Wave ... LP Concord, 1982. Near Mint- ...
In our opinion, Carmen always sounds best when she's singing with a small jazz combo backing her up – which is why we dig this tasty set from the early 80s, recorded with a great group led by Cal! The album's got some nice Latin touches – thanks to piano by Mark Levin, and conga work ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
The title's a bit of a joke, given the image of money on the cover – but the album's a tight little set from this classic Basie tenorist, recorded with a largeish group that would have made his old boss proud!
