A long-overdue collection of work by French soundtrack maestro Antoine Duhamel – most famously known as the composer of the scores to Pierrot Le Fou and Week-End, but also an accomplished talent with lots of other great work from the 60s and 70s. This set pulls together tracks from 12 films, ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
George Duke —
Feel ... CD MPS (Japan), 1974. Used ...
Sweet keyboards and lots of funky grooves – one of the best of George Duke's seminal albums for MPS – and a record that captures him at a key middle point in his growth! The sound here is tighter than the trippier records of before, but also never too smooth or commercial – still ... (Jazz) read moreCD
(K2 HD Pro Mastering pressing! Booklet is slightly wrinkled.)
One of the great ones from Ian Dury – a record that goes way beyond simple quirky rock, and explodes with some wonderful jazzy touches! The sound here is totally great – very much in the sway of Chaz Jankel's musical direction, and filled with great bits on sax, keyboards, and guitar ... (Rock) read moreCD
Johnny Dyani —
Afrika ... CD Steeplechase (Netherlands), 1983. Used ...
One of the more African-styled albums recorded by bassist Johnny Dyani – recorded with a septet that includes extra percussion and steel drums, in a groove that recalls Dyani's best work with British jazz players of the early 70s! The added percussion makes for a much greater emphasis on the ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Dykes' Magic City Trio/Melvin Robinette & Byrd Moo —
Complete Recordings ... CD British Archive Of Country Music (UK), 1927/1929. Used ...
Wonderful late work from Charles Earland – one of the few 70s players who never lost his fire! No matter what the setting, Earland had a command of the organ that came out wonderfully on record – a mean, lean approach to solos that always kept things interesting, and a great ear for ...

A great live set from Cedar Walton's Eastern Rebellion group – still held down by the core team of Walton and drummer Billy Higgins, and featuring some great tenor work from Ralph Moore, plus bass by David Williams. Moore's presence is always a welcome thing on any session – and the ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Eastern Rebellion —
Mosaic ... CD Music Masters, 1990. Used ...
A lost large group recording from bassist Cleveland Eaton – a surprising later entry into his catalog of music! The players here aren't named, but Eaton's clearly working with a large group – running through older soul jazz big band styles of the 60s – as you might hear from ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Amazing work from the early, legendary years of Billy Eckstine – that time when he was fronting one of the hippest backing groups a vocalist could hope to have! Eckstine's voice was already becoming the stuff of legend by the time of these recordings – but thanks to contributions from ... (Vocalists) read moreCD
Harry Edison & His Orchestra —
Sweets ... CD Verve, 1956. Used ...
Easy-going Verve swing at its best – the kind of small group session that let a player like Harry "Sweets" Edison shine in a way that he didn't always get to do in a larger group! For this set, Edison's joined by Ben Webster on tenor sax, Barney Kessel on guitar, Jimmy Rowles on ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Harry Sweets Edison & Eddie Lockjaw Davis —
Jawbreakers ... CD Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ...
Edison and Davis team up for this record that features Edison on trumpet, Davis on tenor sax, Hugh Lawson on piano, Ike Isaac on bass and Clarence Johnston on drums. Tracks include three Edison originals "Oo-ee!", "Jawbreakers", and "Moolah". The album also contains ... (Jazz) read moreCD
One of our favorite albums by Teddy Edwards – and one with some organ in the group! This obscure quartet side has Gerry Wiggins playing a rare bit of Hammond – grooving the group with a lean and open-ended soul jazz approach that really has Edwards blowing at his best! The style sits ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A mid 80s classic from Eek-A-Mouse! The Mouse's creative peak really hit a high point just a couple years in the decade – and it kept going for quite while – including this steller record from '84. It's among Eek-A-Mouse's best albums ever – featuring the masterful backing of ... (Reggae) read moreCD
A great reunion of the team of Kahil El'Zabar and David Murray – a duo who really seem to bring out the best in each other! Murray's got a deep, round tone on his tenor here – a focused, rhythmic approach that falls in line beautifully with El'Zabar's drums and percussion – ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Do not buy this expecting hissy, atonal blip hop – El-Producto is the marquee name here, but this is decisively a late model avant garde jazz record – and a pretty sweet one at that! As with many of the better records in the Blue Series, Matthew Shipp's piano rolls through the center ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Lots of rare work from the great trumpeter – material from the albums Roy & Diz, Roy & Diz Vol 2, Little Jazz, Rockin Chair, Dales Wail, Trumpet Battle, Trumpet Kings, Ralph Burns Among The JATPs, Swing Goes Dixie, That Warm Feeling, The Urbane Jazz Of Roy Eldridge/Benny Carter, ...
