New Masaru ImadaGreen Caterpillar (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD CD format
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $28.99
A great little record from the Japanese scene of the 70s – a set that not only shows the great blend of acoustic and electric styles that was happening at the time, but which also really illustrates the inventive approach of the Three Blind Mice label at their best! The vibe here is very different than the usual Japanese fusion album of the time – a bit more relaxed and open-ended, and really free to play around with different rhythms and tonal changes – yet all while still moving forward, and avoiding some of the proggy, jamming modes of the European scene. Tracks all push past the ten minute mark – and in addition to both piano and electric piano from Masaru Imada, the set also features guitar from Kazumi Watanabi, bass from Osoo Fukui, drums from Tetsujiro Obara, and percussion from Yuji Imamura. Titles include "A Green Caterpillar", "Straight Flash", "Blue Impulse", and "Spanish Flower". CD

Jon Irabagon's OutrightUnhinged ... CD CD format
Irabbagast, 2012. Used ... $8.99
A great little album from talented tenorist Jon Irabagon – served up with a cover that's sort of a parody of a hip hop record – but delivered with a bold musical sound that's right up there with Jon's work in Mostly Other People Do The Killing! The tenor's really out front in most numbers – carving out a fresh space that changes throughout the set – sometimes spare and improvised, yet other times boldly swinging with lots of angular changes – setting fire to the group's lineup of trumpet, keyboards, bass, and drums. One track features a larger ensemble, and a few others feature guest players too – all integrated wonderfully into Irabagon's bold musical vision. Titles include "Lola Pastillas", "Camp Douglas", "Mourning In America", "Charles Barkley", "Parker Posey", and a nicely offbeat version of "Take Five". CD
(Barcode has a cutout mark.)

New Jazz At The PhilharmonicNorman Granz' Jazz At The Philharmonic Volume 10 (10 inch LP) ... LP LP format
Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $34.99
A hard-wailing jam session from the original JATP series – a blistering recording of the 1947 Midnight Concert at Carnegie Hall, featuring players that include Howard McGhee, Illinois Jacquet, Bill Harris, Flip Philips, Hank Jones, Ray Brown and Jo Jones. 2 tracks, each a side long: "I Surrender, Dear" and "Endido". LP, Vinyl record album
(Clef pressing, with trumpeter logo. Vinyl is clean overall, just some light marks. Cover is nice, but has a mark from an old sticker in one spot.)

Jazz ModesMost Happy Fella ... LP LP format
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $24.99
The groovy combo The Jazz Modes were one of the 50's strangest groups – but their work is always entertaining, and a lot more filled with soul than you'd expect! The band is fronted by French horn player Julius Watkins and saxophonist Charlie Rouse – and Rouse's pre-Monk tenor is nice and gutsy, even at moments when it seems like the group's getting a little too "high concept"! Add to the mix the earthy piano of Gildo Mahones, and the combo's definitely got a groove – even on a set like this, which is comprised of tracks from Frank Loesser's musical A Most Happy Fella – all transformed by the group's approach, and taken as mostly instrumental numbers, save for one that features wordless voice by Eileen Gilber. Titles include "Joey Joey Joey", "Dont' Cry", "Happy To Make Your Acquaintance", "Warm All Over", and the obligatory "Standing On The Corner". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with the Long Playing Unbreakable logo. Cover has moderate wear, a bit of sticker residue, some light stains, and a peeled mark from sticker removal on the back.)

JFK QuintetNew Jazz Frontiers From Washington ... LP LP format
Riverside, 1961. Very Good- ... $29.99
A beautiful little record – and one of the only two records made by the obscure (but wonderful) JFK Quintet! The quintet have a sound that's unlike any other combo we can think of – sharp-edged and modern at one moment, but also warmly soulful the next – all at a level that's years ahead of most other players, and which kind of points the way towards new levels of jazz expression in the early 70s. The group features a very young Andrew White on alto, and his playing is unbelievable – a fantastic mix of modernist ideas and soulful colorings that really comes out better here than on any of his later albums as a leader. Ray Codrington's on trumpet, playing with a skittish sound that further underscores the edgey sound of the record – and the great Walter Booker's on bass, working with drummer Carl Newman in a groove that's always compelling. The group plays some startling original compositions – like "Eugly's Tune", "Aw-ite", "Nairod", and "Cici's Delight" – and the album's a delight through and through! LP, Vinyl record album

Ivan Boogaloo Joe JonesSweetback (original pressing) ... LP LP format
Joka, 1975. Very Good- ... $99.99
A monster set of work by one of the funkiest guitar players ever! Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones recorded a number of sides for Prestige Records during the early 70s – but this rare gem came out after all those, in 1975, on the tiny Joka label, and never really got into proper circulation at the time – making it one of THE indie jazz funk classics of the 70s! The album's actually one of Boogaloo's best – and has a rougher edge than his Prestige albums – heard to great effect on the two standout funky cuts, "Sweetback" and "Confusion" – both of which are stunners that feature Jones really ripping away on the guitar! The whole set's nice, though – and other tracks include "You've Got It Bad Girl", "Trouble In Mind", and "Jamaica Farewell". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker, a promo stamp, some wear, just a bit of seam splitting, and some notes in pen on the back. Label has a peeled mark from sticker removal.)

Tamiko JonesCloudy ... LP LP format
Atlantis II, 1977. Very Good ... $12.99
Probably the greatest album by Tamiko Jones – and one that does an excellent job of matching arrangements to her sweet seductive vocal style. Tamiko put the whole thing together herself, and the album features lots of nice keyboard work, and some arranging help from Paul Riser and Tommy Stewart. The whole thing's got a nice slinky style to it, with good tight rhythm parts, sweeping strings, and nice choppy instrumentation under Tamiko's sultry vocals. Includes a nice cover of "Creepin", plus the cuts "Make Love To Your Mind", "Feel Like Makin Love", "Cloudy", "Let It Flow", "Reachin Out For Your Love", and "Boy, You're Growin On Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a mark from sticker removal.)

Jones GirlsOn Target (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Post-Philly, and the girls are working here with Fonzi Thornton and Robert Wright – who choose to start off the album with a silly bit of dialogue that has them talking to the singers from the production booth (possibly letting them know that Gamble & Huff are no longer in charge!) Here's a record that we dig a whole lot more than we remember – with a crisp, bright period production vibe that's kind of come full circle after all these years. The girls shoot for that popular 80s mode and they hit the mark – bullseye! Titles include "On Target", "I Can Make A Difference", "Curious", "I'm A Woman Here", "Knockin", and "2 Win U Back". This FTG edition has 3 bonus tracks: "2 Win U Back (12" Version)", "On Target (Instrumental)" and "On Target (12" Version)". CD

Janis JoplinI Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! ... LP LP format
Columbia, 1969. Very Good- ... $7.99
The stellar solo debut of Janis Joplin – fronting her own Kozmic Blues Band after the break from Big Brother! The raw emotion of her voice is as impressive as ever here – and there is more of a rockin' blues vibe here than on her earlier records – thanks the killer horn section in this new band. There's some stripped down numbers, too, giving this record a pretty balanced feel. A classic! Titles include "Try", "Maybe", "As Good As You've Been To This World", "Kozmic Blues", "To Love Somebody", "Little Girl Blue", and "One Good Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has a mark from price sticker removal & some creasing.)

Louis JordanSomebody Up There Digs Me ... LP LP format
Wing/Mercury, 1956. Very Good- ... $1.99
Rough and raw classics from Louis Jordan – served up with a bit more of an R&B tinge than some of his work from the late 40s! There's a searing quality here that really hits hard on the instrumentation – guitar parts and saxophone riffs that clearly mark the space that Jordan helped allow in American music at the time – moved into nicely by the group here on their renditions of classic tracks from the Jordan book! Titles include "Run Joe", "Early In The Morning", "Caldonia", "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby", "Beware, Brother, Beware", and "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split spine and a small stain on one corner.)

New Jurassic 5Feedback ... CD CD format
Interscope, 2006. Used ... $2.99
Jurassic 5 return – minus the mighty Cut Chemist – after 4 years of welcome vinyl reissues and uncharacteristic quiet on the new release front – but still with plenty of timeless skill for us to cherish! DJ Nu Mark is as sharp as ever with the cuts and scratches, but the Jurassic charm has always been in the tried-and-true mic mastery – which remains the main theme! The crew bring in some hit-making ringers to the production booth and vocals for just a few tracks – including Scott Storch, Salaam Remi, and (gasp) Dave Matthews Band – plus production genius-in-training Exile! Tracks include "Back 4 U", "Radio", "Brown Girl" feat Brick & Lace, "Gotta Understand", "In The House", "Baby Please", "Work It Out" feat Dave Matthews Band, "Get It Together", "Red Hot", "Turn It Out", "End Up Like This" and "Canto De Ossanha".

New Jurassic 5Quality Control ... CD CD format
Interscope, 2000. Used ... $2.99
The album that catapulted Jurassic 5 from the underground! Quality Control is one of the great hip hop albums, a record that's filled with great tracks, yet flows along as the ultimate headphones experience. The rhymes by Zaakir, Chali 2na, Akil, and Marc 7even are top notch in group dynamics and the solo shots, and the record has some of the best production Cut Chemist & Nu-Mark ever put down. Tracks include "How We Get Along", "Contact", "Quality Control", "World Of Entertainment (Woe Is Me)", "The Influence", "Monkey Bars", "Quality Control", "Twelve", "Contribution", "The Game", "Improvise", "Swing Set", "Jurass Finish First", and more.

New Evelyn KingI'm In Love (Japanese pressing) ... CD CD format
RCA (Japan), 1981. Used ... $12.99
One of the real standouts in Evelyn King's career – a sharply focused album that's filled with catchy 80s styled tunes – and which benefits from some great help from a young Kashif! Lots of the tracks have that great flair for a catchy hook that mark's Evelyn's best work – an approach that's never too slick or too forced, and which has a comfortable way of sliding into a tune. Titles include "I'm In Love", "What Are You Waiting For", "If You Want My Lovin", "I Can't Take It", "The Best Is Yet To Come", and "The Other Side Of Love". CD
