Milt JacksonOpus De Jazz (first cover) ... LP
Savoy, 1955. Very Good- ... $16.99
One of the best-known 50s jazz sessions from the Savoy label – a laidback classic that's a great illustration of the label's shift in modes after the early bop years! The setting here is relatively informal – with Milt Jackson as the ersatz leader, working almost in blowing session ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson & Count BasieBig Band Vol 1 (with bonus track) ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1978. Used ... $7.99
A cool meeting of talents – and one that makes for some of the grooviest Count Basie material of the 70s! The vibes of Milt Jackson are a very welcome addition to the Basie groove here – an instrumental sound that didn't always show up in the Count's work, and which brings an extra ... read more CD

Milt Jackson & Oscar PetersonAin't But A Few Of Us Left ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1982. Used ... $4.99
The title's a bit self-pitying, but the music certainly isn't – and even at this late point in his career, the sound of Milt Jackson is coming across loud and clear – possibly more so, because Milt's firmly shaken off the mellower modes of his years with the MJQ! The record has Jackson ... read more CD

Ronald Shannon JacksonPulse ... LP
Celluloid, 1984. Near Mint- ... $5.99
One of the purest of Shannon Jackson's 80s albums – a record that only features solo drum work, plus some vocal passages that are spoken over the percussive bits. The approach is strangely appealing, with an earnestness that's held up longer than most of Jackson's other work of the period. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Back to basics work from Willis Jackson – a live date recorded in France at the start of the 80s, but one that's done with a soul jazz vibe that recalls his 60s concert sets for Prestige!

The title's righter than you might think – as Willis DOES play with feeling, despite a cheesy-looking cover that might make you think otherwise!

EMI/Outernational (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An album that's every bit as cool as you might expect – a set that's very much in the same Indo-jazz experiments as saxophonist Joe Harriott, but with a slightly different approach overall! Although sitar is part of the instrumentation, there's also a fair bit of conventional jazz phrasing ... (Global Grooves, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
