Teddy WilsonImpeccable Mr Wilson ... LP
Verve, 1956. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The title's certainly right on this one – as Teddy Wilson's approach to the keys is as impeccable as his look on the cover of the record! The tunes are short, but they're filled with plenty of bright notes – a masterful illustration of economy on the keys of the piano – but one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Maybe the greatest album ever from vibist Lem Winchester – an early soulful star on his instrument, but one who was taken from us all too soon!

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!

King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A sweet swinger from this hip Japanese vocalist – one of the groovier talents of that scene in the 70s, and an artist whose name wasn't that well known on our side of the Pacific!

Posi tone, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Drummer Jordan Young has a great quartet here – one that features Brian Charette on Hammond, who shapes the sound as much as Jordan's drums!
