Jazz SabbathJazz Sabbath ... LP
Black Lake (Netherlands), 2020. New Copy ... $28.99
A really great record, and one that's even better than its gimmick – even though that gimmick is pretty darn great! The group pretends to be a British jazz combo from 1970, and works their way through a host of Black Sabbath tunes from the time – but rather than a straighter reworking ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Isradisc/Fortuna (UK), 2014. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An incredibly soulful set from the Israeli scene of the early 70s – a record that's quite spiritual overall, with a vibe that's almost Strata East in its approach! The group is less of a workshop than a tight quartet led by saxophonist Albert Piamenta, and featuring piano, bass, and drums ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic album from Benjamin Jephta – and one that's maybe a bit different than some of his other recent work too! There's a more electric vibe to the set – maybe because Benjamin plays organ and keyboards, in addition to bass – and the music has this wonderful flow that's a ... read more CD

Maria Joao & Aki TakaseLooking For Love ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Germany), 1987. New Copy ... $7.99
Maria Joao is one of the most unique vocal talents in jazz – a singer who's partly inspired by the new freedoms of the more experimental female jazz vocalists of the 70s, but one who also draws a lot from the hippest Brazilian singers too!

The rare second album from Juju – the avant jazz collective who'd later morph into funk band Oneness Of Juju, but who still sound pretty revolutionary here!

Mode/Muzak (Japan), 1957. Used ... $18.99
Pure genius from tenor saxophonist Richie Kamuca – a magical exercise in tone and balance, played by Richie with that warm and raspy style that we love so much in his work!

We love the 70s work of Japanese pianist Fumio Karashima – and this album is one of our favorites from the decade!
