Posi tone, 2018. Used ... $8.99
Trumpeter Josh Lawrence works here with his Color Theory group – a great name for the combo, given how vivid they can be with their many hues!

Really wonderful work from Hubert Laws – maybe one of his greatest albums for CTI!

Ramsey LewisRamsey Lewis & The Gentlemen Of Jazz Volume 2 ... LP
Argo, 1958. Very Good ... $2.99
Ramsey and the trio are on the front in tuxedoes, top hats, and tails – but the overall sound of the record is much more in keeping with their soul jazz grooves of the late 50s – not necessarily gentlemanly, but with a worldly appreciation for a variety of styles of music, and perhaps a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
