Some of the rawest work we've ever heard from saxophonist Timo Lassy – blowing here with just the drums of Teppo Makynen for accompaniment!

Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A spacious mid 70s set from Yusef Lateef – with some numbers showing his more soaringly spiritual bent – and others hewing towards a more bluesy or loosely funky vein.

A moody set of 70s work from Yusef – proof that he was always trying to push his bag, and a good attempt to bridge his earlier exotic work and his later high concept compositions.
