A rare Savoy album that compiles sides cut previously for the label by Pres – all apparently during the late 40s years, with players that include Roy Haynes, Junior Mance, Billy Taylor, Cozy Cole, Harry Edison, Buddy Tate, and others. Tracks are offered in master takes, and alternate ones ... read more CD

Lester YoungPres (Charlie Parker) ... LP
Charlie Parker, Early 50s. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
No real date or personnel on this one, and the album's a live set recorded, most likely, at some time in the 50s. The quality of the recording isn't great, and you hear a heck of a lot of crowd noise – but the work's an interesting document of Pres during the period, as the tunes are all ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

As beautiful an illustration of the genius of Lester Young as you could ever hope to find – tight, short small group numbers recorded with a keen focus on Young's amazing tone – all served up with beautiful sound throughout! The cover bills the set as being by Young and his orchestra, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Young Men From MemphisDown Home Reunion ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good+ ... $39.99
It's a little-known fact that Memphis had a huge influence on the sound of late 50s/early 60s soul jazz – probably because most of the city's best players had to leave and go either to Chicago or New York to make their name. This set's a great reminder of that fact, as it brings together an ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Amazing stuff from bassist Eldee Young and drummer Isaac "Red" Holt! At the time of this release, the pair had already risen to great fame as the rhythm backing for Ramsey Lewis in his first trio – but broke out on their own as a solo act, with a real focus on rhythmic piano ...

Fantastic! Young and Holt lay down a monster set of grooves from Curtis Mayfield's Superfly soundtrack (all the good ones – like "Freddie's Dead", "Give Me Your Love", "Pusher Man", and "Superfly"), and they also get into some funky tracks of their own ...

Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Hard-swinging jazz from the Polish scene of the 60s – not one of the modern jazz combos that we mostly know from the time, but instead more of a trad jazz group – yet one that's definitely got their very own style! The group's led by reedman Janusz Zabieglinski – who plays both ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Denny ZeitlinCathexis ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good ... $9.99
Really magical work from a young Denny Zeitlin – one of a few key players in the second wave of jazz piano talent in the 60s – post-Bill Evans, and equally important as artists like Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett! Zeitlin's got the inventive sensibilities of both of those players at their ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1981. New Copy ... $18.99
A sweet set of flute-based jazz from the Polish scene – recorded in the early 80s by Krzysztof Zgraja, but with this freewheeling, open vibe that's maybe more like the early 70s work of Bjorn Jason Lindh or Chris Hinze, mixed with the strong sense of texture of Hubert Laws on CTI!

Eliot Zigmund has been having a bit of a revival in recent years, and this tight little live set is a illustration of the drummer at his best – as Zigmund can play with a sharp crackle when needed, but also lay back and let the space fill with his bandmates at other moments! That latter ... read more CD

A sweetly soaring trumpeter, with a mighty nice groove – one that seems to make equal use of flowing lines on keyboards as well as it does his own lead sound – served up here in a mode that uses electric elements to make Sefi Zisling's acoustic trumpet really shine!

A groundbreaking album, put together by Zorn and a group of downtown New York hipsters, as a fitting hommage to the genius of Ennio Morricone!
