✨✧ Art BlakeyArt Blakey & The Jazz Messengers (Impulse) ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer stuff by Art Blakey – one of his few non-Blue Note sessions from the time, and a hard-wailing set that features the Jazz Messengers as a sextet! The format is one that flourished briefly in these early 60s years – and in this case, the already great lineup of Lee Morgan on ... read more CD

CrusadersStreet Life (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
MCA/Culture Factory (France), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99 21.98
One of our favorite albums ever from The Crusaders – a set that really sums up all the tightness they'd forged in the 70s, while still showing a new sense of soul and funk as well – expertly balanced with flawless LA production! The album may well be the group's equivalent of a Steely ... read more CD

✨✧ DeodatoFirst Cuckoo ... LP
MCA, 1975. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Key proof that Deodato kept on making great records after leaving CTI Records – and in a way, the kind of set that allowed him a bit more freedom to grow than some of his contemporaries! The vibe here is a bit tighter than before, but in a way that makes many numbers even funkier – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DeodatoWhirlwinds ... LP
MCA, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet keyboard soul from Deodato – a set that steps off nicely from the strengths of his big hits on CTI, hitting a similarly flowing groove that's really great! The instrumentation here is a bit more expanded than before, but never in a way that buries the keyboards – and Deodato's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Duke Ellington & John ColtraneDuke Ellington & John Coltrane ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
A seminal meeting of the old and new generations of jazz in the 60s – put together in perfect Impulse fashion! At some level, this is actually an early 60s John Coltrane Quartet album – with Duke Ellington sitting in for McCoy Tyner on piano, as that's the lineup on about half of the ... read more CD

Johnny GriffinJG (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Argo/MCA (Japan), Late 50s. Used ... $12.99
Excellent early work by Johnny Griffin – a rare quartet session recorded in Chicago, with the same lineup (Junior Mance & Wilbur Ware) that appeared with on Ware's legendary Chicago Scene album! The tracks are straight-ahead quartet hardbop – short, but with great tenor work by ... read more CD

Johnny HartmanVoice That Is ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1964. Used ... $5.99
At the time of this album, Johnny Hartman definitely was the voice that is – a singer with a new level of maturity for the 60s, and a voice that's far more masculine than the geeky look of the photo on the cover! Hartman's sound here is smooth and warm, but never in a too-commercial way ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Ahmad JamalPoinciana (80s pressing) ... LP
MCA, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The tune "Poinciana" must have been written by Jamal – as the lyrical flowing style of the song is perfect for his deeply soulful piano style. It wasn't, though – although this recording of the tune has made it one of the biggest in Jamal's book from the time, a perpetual ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David LiebmanIf They Only Knew ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1980. Used ... Just Sold Out!
There's a lot of great chromatic elements going on here – thanks to the work of John Scofield on guitar, who's at that key point where he could effortlessly balance melody and tone with these edges that are sharp, but also very spacious – kind of a wide style that really reaches out and ... read more CD

✨✧ Charles MingusMingus Plays Piano – Spontaneous Compositions & Improvisations (Original Master Recording) ... CD
Impulse/MCA/Mobile Fidelity, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly enchanting album of piano work from Charles Mingus – one of a few he cut on the instrument, and quite different than his regular work on bass! Unlike the bold, angry role that Mingus would take on as a leader, the approach here is very personal and introspective – long ... read more CD

Buddy RichBuddy Rich Band ... LP
MCA, 1981. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Slick funky fusion from Buddy – a bit of a change from some of his other work of the 70s, but still pretty nice. The format is still in a big band mode, but the overall production's a bit slicker – so that there's more electric and studio touches next to Buddy's full-on horn section ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny RollinsAlfie ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful soundtrack to the dark British comedy of the same name – starring a young Michael Caine! You might expect it to be a bit schmaltzy, but it's pure jazz all the way through, and features strong inside playing by Rollins over lively orchestrations by Oliver Nelson – filled ... read more CD

✨✧ Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins On Impulse! ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous little album from Sonny Rollins – one of his most sharp-edged sessions of the mid 60s, and a bold departure from some of his previous work for RCA! The album has a crackling sense of energy that more than lives up to the exclamation point in the title – a starker quality ... read more CD

Joe Sample & David T WalkerSwing Street Cafe ... LP
MCA, 1981. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A surprising turn towards the past for these two fusion heavyweights – a set that has both Joe Sample and David T Walker reprising a host of older R&B classics! The album was handled by the Crusaders' production team, and it's still got a few elements of that side of the spectrum – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah SandersBlack Unity ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1971. Used ... $9.99
A righteous cover, a righteous title, and a righteous little session that features one long song that spans the entire length of the album! "Black Unity" may well be Pharoah Sanders' freest expression on record to date – but it's also still got all the hallmarks of his best moments ... read more CD

MCA (Japan), 1972. Used ... $12.99
A classic of spiritual, soulful jazz – and one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums! The set was recorded in New York after a few free and festive years in Paris, and it's an amazing about-face that has Archie stepping into a world of righteous, full-on, political, and funky themes – the ... read more CD

✨✧ Archie SheppWay Ahead ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Definitely the way ahead in jazz – back in the 60s, and well into the 21st Century too! Archie Shepp's in prime form here – working with a sextet that's awash in avant freedoms, but which always shows a great sense of restraint – just the right power gained from the new modes of ... read more CD
