(NOTE: CD-R. Barcode has a cutout hole. CD has a white promo label.)
An excellent live set from Jaki Byard – one of his best Prestige albums ever, and a key indication of his growing genius in the mid 60s! The group's a quartet – with the amazing rhythm team of George Tucker on bass and Alan Dawson on drums – and a young Joe Farrell plays both ... (Jazz) read moreCD
It's no secret that Don Byas made some of his best recordings in Europe, not America – and this tasty little CD is great support of that fact! The set features a dozen numbers that Byas cut in Paris at the end of the 40s – working with a mixture of American and Parisian players that ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Tenorist Don Byas is one of those players who always seemed to get more recognition in Europe than the US – or if that's not entirely the case, he at least got more chances to record properly than he ever did over here! This excellent 18 track CD features tunes from 3 early 50s sessions that ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Great small group work from Don Byas – some of his most important American sides of the 40s! Other players include Rudy Williams on alto, Emmett Berry and Benny Harris on trumpet, Jimmy Jones and Clyde Hart on piano, and Slam Stewart on bass. (Jazz) CD
An unreleased treasure from the European scene of the late 50s – material recorded for a soundtrack, and a rare meeting of American trumpeter Donald Byrd and French tenor giant Barney Wilen! Neither the film nor the music were ever issued at the time – and this archival project finally ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Sublime late 50s hardbop – recorded in the best Prestige blowing session mode! The record has an incredibly open-ended feel – as you might probably guess from the track "All Night Long", which runs for all of side one, and gives all the players included plenty of room to work ... (Jazz) read moreCD
One of the most hard-hitting sessions ever recorded for the Bethlehem label – and a rare date for the imprint by the team of trumpeter Donald Byrd and saxophonist Pepper Adams!

Early 70s issue of a record recorded for the Warwick label in the early 60s – mostly led by Curtis Fuller, and under the name Soul Of Jazz Percussion.

A nice little shift in style for saxophonist Don Byron – and a record that really cuts loose from his more academic projects, in a way that's nicely fitting the spirit of Junior Walker that inspired it! Don's take on Walker's music isn't runaway Motown revival, but more of a funky jazz ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Sharp-toned reed work from Don Byron – equally well-played on clarinet, bass clarinet, and tenor sax! The set's got a similar moody and modern feel to Byron's other recent work – touched a bit with a sense of nostalgia, but carrying off the tunes with a fresh modern spirit. Players ...

The historic album by Can – capping off their classic early 70s trilogy that includes Tago Mago and Ege Bamyasi – and the last one with Damo Suzuki in the line up! While very similar to Ege Bamyasi, Future Days takes a step away from their more experimental sounds and has more of the ... (Rock) read moreCD
It's hard to imagine anyone making music for as many years as the legendary Candido – nor anyone who might still sound as great after so many decades in music! This set's definitely well-titled – as the congolero works here with a gorup of Latin jazz musicians, on an album that's one ... (Latin) read moreCD
The dark, innovative, head crushing hip hop album that was entirely produced by the enigmatic El-P of Company Flow infamy for his Def Jux label.

A beautiful early album by Elizete Cardoso – arguably one of the first bossa nova records ever, and a set that features some great early tracks penned by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius De Moraes! The record is a haunting showcase for the genius of Jobim and Vinicius, and it includes early ... (Brazil) read moreCD
A massively soulful album from legendary producer Patrick Adams – and a key transitional set that bridges his earlier work on the east coast harmony scene, and his later club classics for P&P! Caress have a sweetly breaking vocal style that's simply wonderful – as great as any of ... (Soul) read moreCD
Larry Carlton looks a little cheesy on the cover of this one, but the album's a classic set of mainstream fusion from the start of the 80s – exactly the kind of record that made Carlton one of the standouts of the time! Larry actually sings a bit on the set, but the main focus is on his ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Beautiful work from the legendary Hoagy Carmichael – and one of the few albums to feature him singing his own work!

Plenty of spirit, and plenty of soul – a 70s classic from organist Doug Carn, and a record that took his instrument, and jazz in general, to a whole new level for the decade!

Sublime southern soul from one of the greats! James Carr is right up there with the best of the 60s – Otis Redding, Arthur Conley, Joe Tex, and others – but he never made it as big as them because of personal troubles and bad planning on the part of his label and management. ... (Soul) read moreCD
Never-heard work from Vikki Carr – a singer who first came to fame on Liberty Records in the 60s, but who really matured during a 70s stretch at Columbia!
