Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the great lost ones from Blue Note – hard to find in any pressing, and a killer hardbop session from the days when the label could crank them out with a quality unmatched by other labels!

Steeplechase (Denmark), 1975. Sealed ... $26.99
Excellent work by Jordan – recorded right at the same time as his classic sides for the Strata East label, and with a similar feel!

Pretty darn hip stuff from Clifford – in that righteous soul jazz mode that he was using at Strata East, although perhaps a bit less focused than on those records.

An overlooked bit of piano genius from the 60s – a split LP with great work from both artists!

Cadillac (UK), 1976. Sealed ... $29.99
Strident soulful stuff from this British combo of the mid 70s – with a sound and urgency that sounds more like an album on the Strata East or Muse label than it does a record on the hit-and-miss Cadillac one.

A record that's far more beautiful than you'd guess from the "carcass" in the title – a strong set of vocal work from singer Kimiko Kasai – easily one of the hippest Japanese singers of the 70s!
