Columbia, 1965. Very Good ... $9.99
An excellent live outing from pianist Denny Zeitlin – recorded at the height of his early powers! The session's got a fresly new conception to piano-based jazz – a style that resonates nicely with the best 60s work of Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett, sharing some of the tenderness of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pianist Denny Zeitlin is sporting a beard on the cover of this fourth album for Columbia Records – and his music here definitely reflects a bit of a change from his earlier cleaner-cut image!

Felicia/DIW (Japan), 1968. Used ... $14.99
A rare jazz nugget from the late 60s – a pretty great trio set by the Joel Zelnik Trio – an American combo, but one with a groove that's every bit as hip as some of the best European piano groups of the time! Zelnik plays the lead instrument, but the album's definitely a strong three-si ... read more CD

A set that has the trombonist hitting a great big band take on bossa nova – one that's surprisingly great overall, with some rich jazz charts penned by Bob Florence, who really helps make the whole thing sparkle!

A pretty darn groovy album of tracks – issued here with a title that says "FM Stereo Programacao Especial", which we think means that it was a promo-only album for radio.
