Impulse/GRP, 1961/1964. Used ... $4.99 8.99
A great statement from vibist Milt Jackson – one of his key solo sessions in a great 60s run of recordings away from the Modern Jazz Quartet! Like the classics that followed this one, the vibe is much more soulful than any of Milt's records with the MJQ – kind of an extension of the ... read more CD

CTI/BGO (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Two CTI label gems from vibist Milt Jackson – back to back on a single CD! Sunflower is proof that Milt Jackson was easily the hippest member of the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one of the few who could really open up into different sounds away from that combo! This sweet 70s set for CTI ... read more CD

Impulse (Japan), 1969. Used ... $19.99 28.99
At the end of the 60s, Milt Jackson and Ray Brown cut some very groovy records together – teamed up in a great pairing of styles that pushed both of them way past the more standard sounds of earlier years! This album's one of the best of the bunch – as it features pianist Monty ... read more CD

Milt Jackson & Ray CharlesSoul Brothers ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Not a vocal session from Ray Charles, but instead a set that showcases his great abilities in jazz – a side of Charles' talents that Atlantic was focusing on a bit more at the end of the 50s! The record's a collaboration with vibist Milt Jackson, who's nicely more loose and gritty here than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonBar Wars ... LP
Muse, 1977. Near Mint- ... $11.99 14.99
The title's a bit hokey – an obvious play on the Star Wars film that was running in theaters at the time of the record – but the sound is classic Willis Jackson at his finest, recorded in a style that's right up there with his best 60s work for Prestige! The group here is a quintet ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis JacksonGrease N Gravy ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Very Good ... $33.99
Great work from our favorite period in Willis Jackson's career – really hard-burning material that helped set a new standard for the organ/tenor sound in soul jazz!

Willis JacksonHeaded & Gutted ... LP
Muse, 1974. Very Good+ ... $6.99 9.99
The date's a bit late, but this is a nice groover from Willis, with a strong jazzy sound, and organ by Mickey Tucker and guitar by Pat Martino.

Willis JacksonIn the Alley ... LP
Muse, 1977. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Smooth and mellow 70s funk from Willis Jackson – a record that still has him working with funky stalwarts from earlier years, but which has a more 70s-influenced kind of groove! There's actually a nice dose of older soul jazz lurking underneath a few of the tracks – making for a record ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Willis JacksonLoose ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Very Good ... $24.99
Willis is anything but loose on this set – as the band and him are grooving in some wonderfully uptight soul jazz lines! The format's a bit more gutbuckety than some of his later work, with Carl Wilson playing chunky Hammond grooves, Frank Robinson punching it up on trumpet, and Bill Jones ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with Van Gelder stamp – nice and clean overall, but vinyl has a click on one track. Cover has a small cutout hole and a small bit of splitting on bottom seam – but is nice on front.)

Willis JacksonWillis Jackson Plays With Feeling ... LP
Cotillion, 1976. Near Mint- ... $6.99 9.99
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! The groove here is tight and smooth 70s jazz funk – very much in the mode of some of the more fully-arranged Kudu and CTI albums of the time, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Willis Jackson & Jack McDuffTogether Again! ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A classic set of soul jazz tracks from Gator Tail and Brother Jack McDuff – recorded in a raw grooving style, very similar to that used on some of their live recordings from the same time.

A cheesy cover, but a pretty decent little record – not nearly as electric or dated as you might guess from the image on the front or the title! The premise is simple – as Ahmad's updating a number of the bigger tunes from his book of the 50s – not in terms of instrumentation, ... read more CD

Ahmad JamalFreeflight ... CD
Impulse, 1972. Used ... $9.99
Brilliant work by Jamal – and one of his first albums to feature electric piano! The mode of the tracks is in that "stretching out" style he was using as the 60s came to a close – a bit inspired by McCoy Tyner, but more an exploration of the lyricism of his earlier work, set ... read more CD
