Freddy RobinsonBluesology ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Wild funk from guitarist Freddy Robinson – hardly the "bluesology" you'd guess from the title! Sure, Freddie started his career as a blues guitarist on early Chess sessions – but during the early 70s, he cut some monster funky recordings for Stax, recordings that had a bluesy ...

Muse, 1973. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Charlie Parker may live again in the title of this set – but given the strengths of the group, the album would be great even without a reference to Bird! The setting's a bop one, as you'd guess – but there's also a lot more going on here too, given that some of the tunes are longer and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

These guys have a real 70s look on the cover, and they have a strong 70s sound within – a cool contemporary take on older spiritual jazz modes – done by a largeish ensemble who recall the glory days of Impulse Records at its best!

Atlantic, 1955. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Kind of an unusual variation on the Martians Come Back album – done during a time when record labels almost saw their stereo releases as a completely different product! The tracks aren't the same entirely as Martians – although the album does include "Astral Alley" and "C ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $49.99
One of the most free-wheeling Sonny Rollins albums of the 60s – an album that features some very long, extended tracks that really break out from some of the straighter moments of Sonny's mid-60s recordings!

Some of the most compelling work that Sonny Rollins recorded in the 60s – served up here in a helping of his 3 albums for Impulse Records!

Impulse (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $22.99
A tremendous little album from Sonny Rollins – one of his most sharp-edged sessions of the mid 60s, and a bold departure from some of his previous work for RCA!

A classic set that brings the east coast tenor of Sonny Rollins into contact with a west coast rhythm section of Ray Brown and Shelly Manne!

Decca (UK), 1971. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Very groovy 70s work from Annie Ross – an album that's quite different than her vocalese records of the 50s, but equally great in its own sort of way!
