The title might sound a bit clinical, but the music within is anything but – and instead is that sort of special, magical work that always makes Sonny Stitt a real cut above most of his contemporaries!

Beautifully-recorded later work from Sonny Stitt – a record that's got the crispness and poise of his classic work on Roost, with perhaps a bit of the warmer soul he'd picked up in the 70s – yet laid out in a way that's different from some of his American albums too! The set's a ... read more CD

Sonny Stitt's work for Verve was some of his best on record – and this album is a perfect illustration of that bold claim!

Fantastic (and hard to find) session that has Stitt playing the sort of confident, mature, laidback grooves that characterize the bulk of his work from this time for Verve and Roost (most of which has been out of print for years!)

John SurmanWestering Home ... LP
Island, 1972. Near Mint- ... $34.99
One of the most beautifully melodic albums ever from British reedman John Surman – a session that's almost cut in the same mode as Lol Coxhill's early 70s sides for Virgin, with Surman soloing strongly in the lead on a variety of saxes, while sparer sounds and notes echo out in the background! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Isao SuzukiMongolian Chant ... CD
King (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $16.99
A really inventive little record from Japanese bassist Isao Suzuki – and a set that, like most of his best 70s work, really defies any sort of easy categorization! Suzuki's got a wonderfully wide range of ideas running through his music – at one level a really close-up and personal ... read more CD

Isao Suzuki/Tsuyoshi YamamotoSamba Club ... CD
King (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
A wicked wicked set of tracks from Japan – one that blends together jazzy riffing and Brazilian rhythms, all played with a surprisingly soulful bent!

GAD (Poland), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
A killer fusion combo from the Polish scene of the 70s – one who seem to take strong inspiration from Weather Report in their sound, and who also feature a very strong bassist in the lead!

Movietone, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
An obscure album from Sylvia Syms – issued on the short-lived Movietone label at ABC, with backing by the combo of pianist Bernie Leighton! Players aren't named, but there's a strong trumpet and tenor component to the album – with deeper soul that makes Sylvia sound hipper than usual. (Vocalists, Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album

Skye, Late 60s. Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
A wonderful album from Gabor Szabo – one with the same freely grooving, slightly-psychedelic sound that he was using on his best records for the Impulse label!

Impulse, Late 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
An excellent 2LP collection of some of the best work that Gabor Szabo recorded for the Impulse label during the mid and late 60s – tracks that mixed together jazz, Eastern spiritualism, and a hip 60s pop sensibility.

Gabor SzaboMore Sorcery ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A great record that's sort of a follow-up to Gabor's excellent Sorcerer LP – and like that one, features long tracks that have a spiralling modal feel that's much more serious, much more grooving, and a lot less campish than some of his other albums of the time. The album features a two-guita ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
