Funky funky Don Ellis – a great set of electric groovers released at the same time that Don scored big with his soundtrack for The French Connection! As you'd guess from the title, the feel here is quite similar – funky electric big band jazz, with a very hip 70s action soundtrack feel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don EllisElectric Bath ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A pretty tasty little album from trumpeter Don Ellis – his first funky outing for Columbia Records, and a groundbreaking batch of funky big band material! The set's quite different from some of Don's earlier recordings – in that it's a bit less academic, and has a focus more on a strong ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Don EllisHaiku (US pressing) ... LP
MPS, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the coolest albums ever cut by trumpeter Don Ellis – quite different from any of his American sessions of the time, and done with a really stretched-out, ambitious sort of feel!

Verve, 1957. Used ... $8.99
The title's a bit of a shocker – in that that we don't normally think of Herb as a bluesy player – but it's pretty darn honest, given the great sound of this set! Herb's playing in a really mellow and laidback style for this session – working with Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Ray ... read more CD

A stunningly beautiful project from JJJJJerome Ellis – one that deals with dysfluency in speech, but delivers the message in a mix of instrumental and vocal modes!

Columbia, 1957. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Although Ray Ellis is probably best known for his sophisticated jazzy backings behind vocalists (most notably on Atlantic albums of the early and mid 60s), he's also a pretty decent jazz-based bandleader on his own – as you'll hear on these whimsical instrumental albums from the late 50s! ...

The first album in many years from German jazz legends Embryo – and a set that hardly has them missing a beat at all from their famous work of the 70s!

One of the great space rock records of the 70s – the sublime debut from Embryo – a group who were a lot more unique than most of their contemporaries!

Columbia/Long Hair (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99 26.99
A German group who really gets the jazz-rock sound down perfectly – in part because they've got the famous trumpeter Dusko Goykovich working here on a number of tracks!
