Vogue/We Are Busy Bodies (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
One of the coolest albums ever from French saxophonist Barney Wilen – a set that's legendary not only for its famous cover image, but for all the wonderful music underneath!

Timeless/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1989. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $34.99 38.99
One of the best later albums by French tenor genius Barney Wilen – a true gem that's far better than the title might indicate!

Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1954. Used ... $9.99
A beautiful little concept for a beautiful little album – a "duologue" in which Lee Wiley sings one track, then Ellis Larkins plays the next, and so on – making for a split LP, but one with a lot of variety along the way!

A long-overdue reissue of the three Blue Note albums recorded by tenor sax giant Don Wilkerson! Wilkerson's one of the lesser-known artists to record for the label – a deep-throated Texas tenorman with a style that's a bit more R&B influenced than other Blue Note artists.

Blue Note, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 28.99
One of the few albums ever made as a leader by tenorist Don Wilkerson – a hell of a talent who was usually working in the background of the Ray Charles band, but got this chance to step out as a leader for Blue Note – in a session that's also one of the rarest on the label!

Concord, 2011. Used ... $4.99

✨✧ Bishop Norman WilliamsOne For Bird ... LP
Theresa, 1979. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A nice set of tunes – one that goes way past the Charlie Parker reference in the title!

Muse, 1979. Very Good+ ... $18.99
Warm mellow acoustic jazz from Buster – not as breakout funky as some of his other albums on Muse, and with some wonderful intimate playing with a trio that includes Kenny Barron and Ben Riley.

Soulful alto work from Charles Williams – a player who sounds a bit like Hank Crawford here, but a fair bit funkier!

Finnish soul by an American singer – not the same Charles Williams that you might know from 70s jazz funk albums – but an even earlier talent, really shining brightly here in a soulful Scandinavian setting!

A cool session from Cootie Williams – working here as a vocalist as much as a trumpeter, often in the company of female singer Wini Brown!

An excellent album of vocals by the great Joe Williams! Joe's always been a fine singer, but with Basie, he really gets the backing he needs to do his work the best.
