The second great Fugazi album, or first, depending on how ya want to define define "album" and how self-righteous you are in that opinion (don't know about you, but it's difficult for us to think of 13 Songs as a compilation) – but it's great all the same! Loud, angry and punchy in ... (Rock) read moreCD
Not Curtis Fuller in South America, but a record that picks up a very slight Latin vibe in the rhythm – which makes for a nice change from Fuller's sessions for Blue Note! The date was recorded during that great short run of soul jazz cookers on early 60s Epic Records – and is a ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A nice blend of classic funk inspiration and turntable DJ-ism from Funky Destination – the brainchild of Croatian funk head Vladimir Sivc, aka Mr. Louie! This is destination worth finding – a fresh mix of funky beats and rhythms and a richly layered sound – with funky soul guitar ... (Deep Funk) read moreCD
The Funky Knuckles may look a bit goofy on the back cover of this third album, but they really have a serious groove in their music – a way of hitting some key funky jazz modes from the 70s, but in ways that are hardly retro at all! Instead, the sound is very much their own – a ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Future Prospect —
Climb ... CD Ropeadope, 2016. Used ...
These guys really live up to the "future" in their name – and serve up a wonderfully soulful version of funky jazz – one that's brimming over with youthful energy, and a strong vision that should guide the group for years to come! The music is almost a reworked version of old ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Some of the best material Slim Gaillard ever recorded! Although he's best known for his Verve work, and for his early 40s sessions in LA – these 1959 recordings for Dot have Slim hitting a groove that's far tighter than usual, with a better jazz influence, and a much freer approach to ...

(Out of print. CD paper sleeve has a cutout hole.)
Classic work from Slim Gaillard – a vocalist so great, he created his own language! Slim worked in late 30s and early 40s LA – in the years before the city's big post-war R&B boom – and in a mode that would clearly pave the way for Charles Moore, Nat King Cole, and countless ...

Earl Gaines is one of the great under-recognized talents of southern soul – and he's got a wonderful style that mixes bluesy roots with smoother arrangements, in a manner that's slightly similar to the work of Bobby Blue Bland, but which also has it's own unique feel. His recordings are all ... (Soul) read moreCD
Great 20 track compilation that focuses on the pivotal years for Serge Gainsbourg – the time when he was turning his twisted French pop into a sound that would forever be remembered, and become an inspiration for so many of today's musicians. The set's got a few tracks that are on other ... (French) read moreCD
Great compilation that is part of a 3 volume set of work by the fantastic French pop singer Serge Gainsbourg! This volume brings together tracks from Serge's 60's years, and none of the material is on the other full-length CD reissues we stock – as most of it is from older singles and e.p.s ... (French) read moreCD
Fantastic stuff – and a record that may well be the greatest ever from the mighty Serge Gainsbourg – high praise indeed, considering the greatness of Gainsbourg's other music! The album is one long suite built around a spare, electric bass-driven theme – a slow funk riff that's ... (French) read moreCD
Serge Gainsbourg's last studio album – but a record that's still very much in the bad boy mode of earlier years! The sound is quite 80s-oriented – with more electric rhythms and a fair bit of keyboards – but Serge makes the best of the sound by delivering the lyrics in his older ... (French) read moreCD
2 fusion classics from guitarist Eric Gale – back to back on one CD! Ginseng Woman is wonderfully strong effort from Gale – a player who'd done countless studio work on fusion sessions in the 70s, but who never really broke that strongly as a leader until this set! Gale's tone here is ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Live at Museo Emilio Greco in Orvieto Italy Umbria Jazz Winter Festival on December 31 1998, at NDR radio studios in Hamburg Germany on October 29 1998 & at Montreux Jazz Festival Switzerland July 10 1996. (Jazz) CD
If you're looking for a definition of the genius of Red Garland, this album may well be it – because it's a near perfect set from the starting note to the last – all cast in service of that amazing Red Garland sound of the 1950s! Garland's style here is so simple, so "right", ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Red Garland —
Dig It! ... CD Prestige/OJC, Late 50s. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice, cooking bop side, led by Red Garland and featuring 'Trane at his late 50s best, when he was moving between playing with the top East coast talents of the day, and playing with a ferocity that betrayed the direction he'd later take when he got really out. Donald Byrd's also in the frontline ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Simple and soulful elegance from the great Red Garland – prime mid-50s material for Prestige, recorded here with incredible backing from Paul Chambers and Art Taylor! The tightness of the trio is amazing – but never so much so that it gets in the way of Red's warmly introspective modes ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Long tracks and plenty of room to move around – a perfect setting for the classic sound of the Red Garland Trio on Prestige! Despite the title, the album's not so much groovy as it is lyrically beautiful and filled with sensitivity – a key bridge between piano players of the mainstream ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Way more than just a regular trio outing from Red Garland – as the great Leo Wright joins the group on alto for half the tracks – making a rare small group appearance for the time! (Jazz) CD

A later non-trio session with horns – featuring nice work from Harold Land and Ira Sullivan on tenor, and cornet from Nat Adderley! Titles include "Stella By Starlight", "It's Impossible", "Theme For A Tarzan Movie", and "Red Alert". (Jazz) CD
Red Garland's piano was certainly humming strong at the time of this session – as Red's trio were one of the key rhythm components of many Prestige albums of the late 50s, but also a real starring act on their own! The album's got a laidback, almost mellow feel that's a bit different from ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Solar ... CD Jazzland/OJC, 1962. Used ...
An obscure little quartet session from Red Garland – recorded with Les Spann on both guitar and flute, caught at a time when he was just starting to make waves on the New York scene! The presence of Spann gives the record a decidedly different feel than most of Garland's work on Prestige ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Long lyrical piano tracks by Red, with backing by Wendell Marshall on bass and Charlie Persip on drums. Titles include "Baby, Won't You Please Come Home", "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen", and "My Honey's Loving Arms". (Jazz) CD
Gentle genius from Red Garland – working here in classic trio formation with Sam Jones and Art Taylor – on a mellow set of late nite numbers and subtle ballads, all carried off in the best tradition of the Moodsville label! Eddie Lockjaw Davis joins the group on 3 tracks on the set ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Red Garland with Ray Barretto —
Rojo ... CD Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ...
Red Garland's really cooking on this late 50s set – thanks to some added conga work from Ray Barretto on most of the album's tracks – and that great little groove that Barretto's percussion brought to some other soul jazz cookers like this from the time! Garland still gets plenty of ... (Jazz) read moreCD

One of Erroll Garner's best-selling albums ever – a famous live date recorded in the mid 50s – and a record that's as important to his catalog as the classic Misty! Garner's playing before an apparently large audience, but the recording quality is still nice and clear – a strong ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Never-heard music from the legendary Erroll Garner – unissued studio recordings from the end of the 60s and the start of the 70s – brought together here to form one of the most striking albums in his catalog! Garner's perhaps a bit more intimate in these settings, and is certainly more ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A tight recent set from 70s soul jazz legend Carlos Garnett – blowing strong and soulfully, in a series of different groups that includes pianist Carl Holmes, plus work on bass by either Brad Jones and Steve Neil, and drums by Taru Alexander or Shingo Okudaira. Percussionist Neil Clarke ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Two orchestral scores by the Italian composer Giorgio Gaslini to two historic period pieces filmed during the early 70's. The music to Five Days Of Milan is fairly straight, but with some nice off-kilter, atonal moments in which the orchestra seems to be leaning sideways, and playing with a weird ...
