Prestige, 1964. Near Mint- ... $14.99
The first album ever cut by George Benson as a leader – a cooker of a soul jazz set, recorded back when George was the guitarist in Jack McDuff's classic 60s quartet!

Karl Berger with Masahiko SatoWith Silence ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
There's nothing silent here – as the album's one of the most biting 70s albums we've heard from vibist Karl Berger – an album that's relatively free overall, and which features some fantastic work by Masahiko Sato on piano!

Killer work from a group of American players who've all found a strong outlet for their talents on the Red Records label – an Italian company, but one that's really done a great job of keeping the fires going for players who sometimes don't get as much of a chance to record in the US!

Groovy boogaloo from late 60s Mexico – an album that's quite different than US sets of this nature!
