A pretty darn great record, and a lot more swinging than you'd expect!

Metrojazz, 1958. Very Good ... $14.99
A strange one, and from this perspective, it seems like a crazy decision to pair modernist tenorist Sonny Rollins with a set of large brassy arrangements.

One of the great albums that Pee Wee Russell recorded for Impulse during the late 60's, when they brought him back for some great comeback LPs in a number of different settings.

Pee Wee Russell QuartetAsk Me Now! ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used ... $8.99
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover! Sure, Pee Wee was a bit of a traditionalist on his instrument – the clarinet – but he's working here in a starkly modern way that almost recalls some of the best 50s work of Jimmy Guiffre, or ... read more CD

441, 2003. Used ... $13.99
Wonderful work from a real up-and-comer – a bright young jazz artist who seems to get better and better with each new record! Philippe Saisse takes his "acoustic" tag here with a grain of salt – as the French keyboardist also plays Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer organ, and vibes on ... read more CD

Wicked jazzy bossa from 60s Brazil – a crackling early classic from pianist Dom Salvador!

Joe Sample's sitting at a grand piano on the cover, and that image is a nice tip-off to the sound within – an approach that has Joe hitting some more sophisticated acoustic passages at points, while still opening up into the soulful groove we'd expect from his legacy as a core member of The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
