Alex Wing & David BoykinVision Without Words ... CD
Alex Wing, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the most unusual albums we've ever heard from David Boykin – a set of spare duets with multi-instrumentalist Alex Wing – done at a level that really pushes Boykin's sounds on both tenor and bass clarinet! The tunes here are all freely improvised, and Wing often plays guitar ... read more CD

Paul WinterJazz Premiere: Washington ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Although Paul Winter, like Paul Horn, later went on to do some lousy hippy dippy jazz work that verged on nausea, at the early part of his career, also like Horn, he managed to have a very open minded style that let him sample a number of different influences, and weave them into a colorful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $33.99
The sound of Ipanema in the 60s – served up here in a great partnership between American jazzman Paul Winter, and bossa composer Carlos Lyra! The album's an excellent bossa jazz session all the way through – with alto from Winter that's some of his sharpest on record in the 60s, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1967. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A much groovier set than usual from vocalist Jimmy Witherspoon – thanks to some great backing from the combo of organist Jack McDuff, which also includes guitar from a young Melvin Sparks! The sound here is definitely in keeping with the "blues" in the title – but McDuff's ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Zbigniew Wodecki with Jerzy MilianSny Podroznika ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
A very cool Polish singer from the 70s – but one who works in styles we'd be much more likely to associate with male vocalists from America in the previous decade! Part of the style might have to do with the backings – which are superbly handled by jazzman Jerzy Milian, who directs the ... (Vocalists, Jazz) read more CD

Mike WoffordStrawberry Wine – The Jazz Piano Of Mike Wofford ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Excellent early work from pianist Mike Wofford – a player who'd show up more strongly in the 70s, but who's already in great form here in this early 60s session! The album's quite unique – not the mainstream piano trio material that you'd expect from a major label at the time, and more ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Raven WolfSpiritual Jazz On South 9th Street ... CD
Pug Dog, 2011. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An album that's got a lot deeper vibe than you might guess from its cover – a contemporary set, but one that's recorded in a nicely stripped-down style that feels more like some lost set from the 70s – as most of the album is just improvised flute and sax over raw percussion! Reedman ... read more CD

Lyman Woodard OrganizationDedicacion ... CD
Corridor/Uuquipleu, 1985. New Copy ... $9.99
A great little set from keyboardist Lyman Woodard – and one that's definitely got some of the Latin flavor promised by the spelling in the title! Woodard's still playing some mighty nice organ and electric piano lines, but the group here also has some added Latin percussion at the bottom ... read more CD

Lyman Woodard OrganizationLyman Woodard Organization Orchestra – Live In Detroit 2010 ... CD
Uuquipleu, 2010. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A recent live set from the legendary Lyman Woodard – and a record that's every bit as great as his killers from the 70s! Woodard's lost none of his funky touch on the organ – and really burns amazingly well throughout – as does his group, which is less of an "orchestra" ... read more CD

Rare work from one of the true powerhouse performers on the Detroit jazz scene – organist Lyman Woodard, famous for a few funk records in the 70s – but a musician who also gigged non-stop for decades in the Motor City!

Late work from Detroit organ legend Lyman Woodard – and sounds that are still very much at the top of his game! The set's a trio date, with drummer Leonard King – who was on the classic Woodard Organization Records – and Lyman's still got that lean, slinky groove on the Hammond ... read more CD

Chris WoodsFrom Here To Eternity (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Norma/Black & Blue (Japan), 1974. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Chris Woods is one of our favorite reed players from the 70's, and, like a lot of our other favorites (Nathan Davis, Sahib Shihab), he spent a great deal of time in Europe, and never acheived the recognition he would have if he'd been playing here. (Or perhaps we should say that he never received ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
Great stuff! Phils Woods plays reeds over a cool crazy band of Greek players who are trying to do a "jazz meets Zorba the Greek" thing here. Sounds crazy, but the record's actually great, and has a mix of styles that comes together in an amazing way. We always used to pass this up, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Audiographic, 2019. New Copy ... $18.99 20.00
Two fantastic side-long improvisations – but we hardly would have expected anything less, given that the proceedings feature Nate Wooley on trumpet, and Ken Vandermark on tenor and soprano clarinet!

Larry Wild WriceWild – The Big Big Sound Of Larry Wild Wrice ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $33.99
The only album we've ever seen from jazz drummer Larry Wrice – a Chicago player who really kicks it in a hard and heavy soul jazz groove! Larry's got an approach to the kit that's quite a lot like that of Joe Dukes – one that's always concerned with pushing the rhythms of the tune very ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Wright TrioFrank Wright Trio ... LP
ESP, 1965. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A freewheeling workout in the classic ESP mode. Wright's hard tenor is set against the bass of Henry Grimes and the drums of Tom Price. (In a way, this is like Grimes' ESP record, with Wright in the place of Perry Robinson.) Three long tracks, with lots of room for Wright to wail. Tracks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

The mighty Frank Wright joins the fantastic trio of pianist Georges Arvanitas – with Jacky Samson on bass and Charles Saudrais on drums! Frank plays tenor and bass clarinet – and tunes are a bit tighter and more swinging than some of his other records – at least at some points. LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A beautiful record, and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by alto player Leo Wright! At the time of the set, Wright was really making some excellent records with Lalo Schifrin and in Dizzy Gillespie's group (where they both were working at the time) – and this set is a perfect ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A charming little 70s session from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – one of the greatest tenor stars of the Polish jazz scene of the 60s and 70s! Jan's got a style that's a bit like Stan Getz during the same time – warmly carved notes that are perfectly at home in easygoing tunes that allow ... read more CD
