Count BasieCount Basie & His Orchestra (10-inch) ... LP
Clef/Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
An early collaboration between Count Basie and Norman Granz – and a real cooker too! Granz shows some great foresight here – grabbing Basie at a time when his group was just getting its groove back, and really learning how to hit a more modern sound! The set includes some great tenor ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Buddy ColletteBuddy Collette's Swinging Shepherds ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key album in the development of the flute in jazz – issued under the Swingin Shepherds name to cash in on the fame of that popular hit of the time! The album's a bit more serious and conceptual than you might guess from the title and cover image – and follows strongly on the approach ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art FarmerListen To Art Farmer & The Orchestra ... LP
Mercury, 1962. Very Good ... $9.99
A beautiful set of tracks that features Art Farmer soloing on flugelhorn over larger arrangements by Oliver Nelson. Farmer's work on the instrument was just taking shape at this point in his career, and the soulful backings of Nelson are a really great match for his lyrical tone, and widening ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll GarnerFeeling Is Believing ... CD
Mercury/Mack Avenue, 1970. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
Erroll Garner's first album of the 70s – and a set that's a perfect demonstration of that way he could always groove, but with an edge! The first 30 seconds of the album have this sense of bold freedom that might make you think you've accidentally put on a record by Cecil Taylor – that ... read more CD

✨✧ Erroll GarnerMambo Moves ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great LP of Latin-y piano tracks with Candido sitting on on congas – an element that makes the album groove nicely, with a harder Latin sound than you'd ever expect! Great stuff all around – and we wish he'd recorded more like this! Titles include "Mambo Nights", "Old ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll Garner/Leith StevensNew Kind of Love – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Mercury/Mack Avenue, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
A really unusual album from piano giant Erroll Garner – a jazz album at the core, but one that was also used as the soundtrack for an obscure Paul Newman film of the 60s! We always love Erroll Garner in a fuller setting – something that's not always easy to find on record – and ... read more CD

Rozelle GayleLike, Be My Guest – An Evening With Rozelle Gayle ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Rosie Gayle lays down a set of hipster comedy and music tracks, with a nice "beat" feel, and good jazz backing in parts. His style's a mix of Louis Jordan-type storytelling songs, with comedy that sounds a bit raunchy, and which was probably more so in his live appearances. Tracks ...

✨✧ Herb GellerGellers ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest records ever cut by altoist Herb Geller, and one of the few to document the work of his group that included wife Lorraine Geller on piano! Lorraine's quite nice, and the rhythm by Keith Mitchell and Mel Lewis is good too – but the real wonder is Herb's alto, which cuts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Patrick GleesonBeyond The Sun – An Electronic Portrait Of Holst's The Planets ... CD
Mercury/BSX, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most ambitious records ever made by electronic wizard Patrick Gleeson – a huge talent on the moog and Arp, whose work was featured on key 70s jazz albums by Charles Earland, Joe Henderson, Bennie Maupin, and Herbie Hancock – and that's saying a lot, given that Herbie already ... read more CD

✨✧ Gigi GryceReminiscin' ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great lost date from the wonderful Gigi Gryce – a set that features the altoist in an sextet, but often swinging with a looser vibe than on some of his better-known albums from the 50s! There's a mix of soulful and modern here that's not unlike the Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chico HamiltonCatwalk ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Not classic Chico – but a pretty darn nice album of fusion tracks, very much in the spirit of other Mercury jazz work from the 1976/1977 generation! The tracks have a nice riffing groove to them – with fast tight drums from Chico, souflul sax work by Arthur Blythe and Gary Gordon, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Quincy JonesAround The World (Wing) ... LP
Mercury, 1961. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy big band material, with that very cool 60s Quincy Jones sound!

✨✧ Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Explores The Music Of Henry Mancini ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quincy Jones meets Henry Mancini – and the result is an album that's as groovy as it is jazzy – every bit as wonderful as you might expect, and with a few surprising touches as well! Given that Mancini's tunes are already pretty darn great on their own – and plenty jazzy too ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful box set, and one that's filled with amazing material by one of our favorite players of all time! Roland Kirk's work for Mercury has always been darn tough to come by on wax, and even though a number of titles have been reissued individually over the years, this box set is still the ... read more CD

✨✧ Perry & The HarmonicsIntrigue With Soul ... CD
Mercury/Monkey Dog (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A unique little record – unlike anything else we can think of – one that combines the hippest side of the 60s soul jazz vibe with that decade's popular love of spy culture too! The set's mostly instrumental, but has a few dropped-in vocals that really open things up – and the ... (Soul, Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Oscar Peterson's trio is augmented here by a famous guest – trumpeter Clark Terry, whose horn adds a nice bit of punctuation to the set, and makes the record a strong standout in the 60s catalogs of both players! The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An extremely groovy session from arranger Pete Rugolo – done in a style that's partly jazz, but which also has lots of dynamic range – in a way that's almost in the style of some of the RCA bachelor pad albums from the time. Rugolo makes the most of the interesting format – using ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jon ThomasBig Beat On The Organ ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Although he's best known for his vocal R&B hit "Heartbreak", Jon Thomas was also a darn good organist, and this mid 50s album for Mercury's a nice batch of sides in the same tradition as contemporaneous work by Bill Doggett and Doc Bagby. The tracks are short and lively, and Jon ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of Sarah Vaughan's best albums from the 50s – a swinging live set caught at Chicago's Mister Kelly's night club – and recorded with very small combo backing!
