My Romance ... LP Vee Jay/RVC (Japan), 1960. Near Mint- ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare session from Chicago pianist Chris Anderson – a hell of a player on the ivories, but one who's been woefully under-recorded over the years! This gem was originally cut for Vee Jay in 1960, but not issued until many years later for this Japanese release – and we're extremely ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the true hit jazz albums of the 60s, and a record that's still pretty darn incredible today! Who'd have thought that a jazz recording of the theme to the film "Exodus" could have been such a hit? It was, and the way Eddie handled it forever transformed the face of jazz. Eddie ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing with Audiomatrix stamp. Vinyl is double labeled on Side 1, and has some noisy residue on Side 2. Cover has a Stereo sticker on front, and some notes in pen and name in marker in back.)
Although Exodus to Jazz was probably the biggest album of Eddie's career, we've always been a bit more partial to this excellent LP, a terrific document of Eddie's work from his early days on the Chicago jazz scene. Featuring Eddie's good early group with Willie Pickens on piano, Jo Dorio on ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Summit Meeting ... LP Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good ...
A great assortment of some of the great jazz recorded during the short-lived run of Vee Jay Records – titles that include "Exodus" by Eddie Harris, "Awful Mean" by Paul Chambers, "Wrinkles" by Wynton Kelly, "Bye Bye Blackbird" by Bill Henderson, "Ha ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing, with Bell Sound etch – nice and clean! Cover has a bit of seam splitting, but is nice overall.)
One of Wynton Kelly's greatest albums, and an all-star hardbop session that includes Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. With Philly Joe on drums, and Morgan and Shorter, the LP almost has the feel of a classic Art Blakey session for Blue Note, but Kelly's piano gives ... read moreCD
The complete trio recordings by Wynton Kelly for Vee Jay – pulled from 3 different albums, and also including a host of alternate takes as well! One of the main albums here is Kelly At Midnite – a moody, mellow late nite session – just spare trio material by Wynton, played in a ... read moreCD
Rock-solid work from Wynton Kelly – a standout trio side from the early 60s, and one of his few dates recorded for Vee Jay Records! Kelly seems to have a bit more kick here than in the 50s – and a bit more of a down to earth quality than on his later sides for Verve – really ... read moreCD
The MJT grooves like nobody's business, thanks to a core rhythm group that includes Harold Mabern on piano, Walter Perkins on drums, and Bob Cranshaw on bass. Add to the mix a young Frank Strozier on alto, fresh from Memphis (he made the trip to Chi-town with buddy Harold Mabern), and the smoking ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear near the bottom, and a light stain on the back bottom.)
An insanely wonderful pre-Blue Note session that was recorded by Vee Jay in the early 60's, but was never released at the time. The set features a totally fantastic tight quartet with Art Blakey playing hard hard hard drums, Cedar Walton jamming on piano, and Shorter blowing away in a perfectly ... read moreCD
