United Artists, 1959. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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

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!
