Crackling tight work from Roy Haynes – recorded here in a live setting with his mid 80s group that featured the great Ralph Moore on tenor. Moore's angular lines dominate the set – a bit freer than on the albums cut under his own name, driven onward by the drumming of Haynes, into a ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Amazing sounds from Lee Hazlewood – some of his most offbeat, unbridled recordings ever – and that's saying a lot if you've already heard his classics for Mercury, MGM, and Reprise! The package here brings together rare work from Lee's own LHI label – packaged beautifully with a ... (Vocalists) read moreCD
A great later set from The Heath Brothers – proof that the family stayed plenty darn hip into their older years! Although issued by Concord, there's a nicely soulful bent to the record – some slightly angular modern moments, inflected with a lot of warmth on the solos – not just ... (Jazz) read moreCD

So What ... CD Columbia/Eighty Eights, 2002. Used ...
Just Sold Out!
One of the most beautiful Eddie Henderson albums we've heard in years – a richly modal session with lots of classic influences, recorded beautifully, and with a feel that will make it a real standout! The set list includes some killer jazz standards – like Wayne Shorter's "Prince ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A stone killer from the early Blue Note years of tenorist Joe Henderson – a key example of why the label had so much faith in him right from the start, and why Henderson's horn was quite different than so many other players of the 60s! There's a sharp edge here, but there's also a soulful ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A fantastic session of 60s "new thing" jazz – and one of our favorite early records by Joe Henderson! The album features some incredibly hard playing from Joe – with a very dark edge to his solos that's nicely offset by McCoy Tyner's lyrical piano, and the supple rhythms of ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Classic early work by Joe Henderson – very well titled with the use of "mode", given the new sound and new direction Henderson was taking his tenor in the 60s! The album's got Joe working at the head of an all-great lineup that includes Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Cedar Walton, and ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A classic straight session by Joe Henderson – cut during his early years, when he was breaking out of the box with a heck of a lot of fire! Kenny Dorham's subdued lyricism complements Joe's impassioned playing over the angular, yet still-swinging rythm section of Andrew Hill, Eddie Kahn and ... (Jazz) read moreCD
One of Joe Henderson's first true moments of greatness – a landmark session recorded with a quintet that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums! LaRoca's very free on the drum kit, and gives the set a rhythmic looseness that's a ... (Jazz) read moreCD
One of the few records ever cut by this fantastic alto player from the mid 50s! Henry most famously worked with Monk, but his albums as a leader are great – and this one features Kenny Dorham, Kenny Drew, Wilbur Ware, and Art Taylor, all components of a totally solid Riverside lineup. The ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Ernie Henry was a fantastic alto player who only cut a rare few albums before his untimely death. Most folks will know him from his great work on a few Monk sessions – but this album features tracks that were the last the Henry cut as a leader, done in late 1957 shortly before he passed away. ...

Not just a best of the Heptones, but a collection of the music that would provide the template for so many rhythms throughout the history of reggae. Leroy Sibbles and crew lay down sweet harmony soul and some of the finest rhythms around in this collection of early reggae, for a number of ... (Reggae) read moreCD
Broadway tunes, but some very hip ones – thanks to mightily swinging work from the Woody Herman group of the 60s! Many of the numbers here are familiar ones pulled from big shows of the 1950s and early 60s – but Herman and crew change things up wonderfully by using the tunes as lively ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A real stroke of genius from pianist Andrew Hill – and a surprising one too! After an initial legacy of groundbreaking experimental sides for Blue Note, Hill returns to his "grass roots" on this excellent session of straight ahead, fairly funky, soul jazz piano tunes! In the notes ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A great late small combo session by Billie – recorded in Hollywood with a group that includes Harry Edison, Ben Webster, Jimmy Rowles, Barney Kessel, Red Mitchell, and Alvin Stoller. The songs are short and swinging – with Billie at the top of her form on familiar standards like "C ... (Vocalists) read moreCD
