It may have been recorded on the French Riviera – but the session's actually a killer batch of Latiny tinged tracks from Dizzy & Co – with with great arrangements by Lalo Schifrin! There's a wonderful 10 minute version of "Chega De Saudade", done as "No More ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Portrait of Jenny is a sweet slow and groovy funk LP recorded by Dizzy for the Perception label. Similar to his other LPs from the time (like Soul & Salvation) in that it's got a cool electric feel that you don't really associate with Diz. But also unique in that it's got these beautiful long ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Dizzy Gillespie —
Live 1957 ... CD Jazz Unlimited (Denmark), 1957. Used ...
A great little blowing session for Verve – one that has Dizzy Gillespie working here with two different "Sonnys" – Sonny Stitt and Sonny Rollins, both of whom play tenor on the set! The tracks here are all quite long and open – more loose vehicles for extended soloing ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Coleman Hawkins, et al —
Sittin In ... CD Verve, 1957. Used ...
A great little jam session from Verve – done in a style that's looser and freer than some of the JATP albums, and with a smaller group overall! Players include Stan Getz, Paul Gonsalves, and Coleman Hawkins on tenor, Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, and Wynton Kelly on piano – plus bass by ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Silky slow jams from Ginuwine meet head to head with Timbaland's post modern hip hop production for a debut LP that would help shift the direction of 90s commercial soul. Includes "Pony", "Holler", "Tell Me Do You Wanna", "Only When Ur Lonely", "Ginuwine ... (Soul) read moreCD
Some of the most sublime modern jazz of the postwar years – material that ended up on the albums Four Brothers, Tangents In Jazz, The Jimmy Giuffre Clarinet, Modern Jazz Quartet At Music Inn, Jimmy Giuffre 3, The Music Man, Travlin Light, Four Brothers Sound, Historic Concert At Music Inn, ...

Groundbreaking trio work from the great Jimmy Giuffre – an album that cut loose both the piano and the drums – in a way that took Gerry Mulligan's earlier rhythm-less experiments with jazz, and pushed them one degree further! The group on the session features Giuffre on clarinet, tenor ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A fantastic album – if only for the cover! The record features a rare cover image that's an obscure painting by Salvador Dali – pretty surreal for Jackie Gleason, who was supposedly a fan of Dali! The music's not as surreal as the image, but it's still got this amazingly baroque ... (Now Sound) read moreCD
Beautiful work from the always-great Benny Golson – a wonderfully understated quartet session that's filled with plenty of long tracks, and sublime solo work from Golson! Benny's performed in many settings over the years – all of which are great – but we're recently quite partial ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Really great stuff from Babs Gonzales – a whole host of rare singles, compiled into one excellent collection! (Vocalists) CD

Gonzalez ... CD Soul Brother/Expansion (UK), 1974. Used ...
Sweet funky jazz from the 70s! Gonzalez were an obscure UK combo – probably known a lot better over in England, but pretty darn hard to find over here in America – and they've got a tight style that reminds us of some of the more well-produced jazz funk coming out on labels like Blue ...

Benny Goodman's famous 1938 live date at Carnegie Hall – with work from Teddy Wilson and Count Basie on piano, Lionel Hampton on vibes, Johnny Hodges on alto, Cootie Williams and Buck Clayton on trumpet, and Lester Young on tenor – plus Gene Krupa on drums, on his famous reading of ...

Progressive jazz with a bit of a post-rock instrumental twist – tunes that are almost in the mode of some of the recent work coming from our hometown of Chicago, but which are performed here by the Projeto Alfa quartet of guitarists Lanny Gordin and Guilherme Held, bassist Fabio Sa, and ...

One of Dexter Gordon's proudest moments of the 50s – a rock-solid session for Bethlehem – easily one of the best-remembered hardbop sides from the label's California years! The album's got a relaxed, free-blown sound that's quite nice – with Dex in the lead on tenor, supported by ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Nice British issue of Dexter Gordon's early bebop material recorded for the Dial label. This excellent package collects some key early work by Gordon – important west coast bop sides cut for the Dial label in the mid 40s! Dex's records of the time were some of the best burning out of LA ... (Jazz) read moreCD
An unusual set for both Dexter and Blue Note – first, because the set was recorded in Europe (not at Rudy Van Gelder's), and second because the tracks are all quite long! The album was recorded in Paris – and is cut in an open-ended format that's very much in the mode that Gordon would ... (Jazz) read moreCD
An overlooked US date from 1970 – a set that Dexter Gordon recorded during a quick stop home from his time abroad – really cooking away in the Prestige studios with a great little rhythm section, in ways that are quite different than his better-known European work of the time! The ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Not the soundtrack to Dexter Gordon's big film appearance in the 80s – but a smoking little live date recorded with trumpeter Benny Bailey in the mid 70s! At the time, both Bailey and Gordon were key players on the European scene – both Americans living abroad, really stretching out ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A rare slice of work from Dexter Gordon – an early 70s live date in Paris, recorded by Jef Gilson, and featuring the George Arvanitas trio as a rhythm section, plus trumpet by the great Sonny Grey! The mix of players is totally great, and makes for a record that's fresher than some of Dex' ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Great old school Hammond jazz – featuring a trio with tenorist Sax Gordon in the lead, and Alberto Marsico playing some mighty nice lines on organ! The group's got Alessandro Minetto on drums as its third member – which creates an open, exploratory vibe that's not unlike some of the ... (Jazz) read moreCD
