✨✧ United FrontPath With A Heart ... LP
RPM, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hip batch of west coast spiritual soul jazz – never too out, and with a groove that's partly modal, and partly in the style of some of the LA freeboppers who were working for Horace Tapscott's Nimbus records around the same time. Instrumentation includes trumpet, alto, bass, and percussion – and titles include "March In Ostinato", "Jazz Piece", "Feel Free", and "Don't Lose Your Soul". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light water staining on two seams.)

✨✧ Art PepperArt Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section (180 gram 2LP pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Contemporary/Analogue Productions, 1957. Sealed 2LP ... $149.99
One of Art Pepper's classic recordings, in which he plays with a spare quartet backing by Miles Davis' rhythm section at the time – Paul Chambers, Red Garland, and Philly Joe Jones. An essential East meets West jazz recording, with Art at the top of his game, playing in a unique setting for the first and only time (it's said that Art didn't even know of the date until the morning of the session). Pepper is one of the few alto players to really establish his own voice on the horn, without aping Bird, and his emotive playing really shines here. A definitive version of "Straight Life" is on this album, along with "Waltz Me Blues", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" and "Star Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Out of print 45 rpm pressing – still sealed!)

Sea DersSea Ders ... LP
Groovie, Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A great record with all the known recordings of the Sea-Ders (or Cedars) – a beat combo from mid-to-late 60s Lebanon – and a pretty much perfect mix of period rock & roll hooks and rhythms with Middle Eastern string buzz in place of a Stratocaster! The vocals are in English and the tunes are as catchy and accessible as can be – with either an electric bouzouki or oud bring the stringed heat – and it's a perfect fit! Includes "For Your Information", "Hide If You Want To Hide". "I Like The Way", "Thanks A Lot", "Better Loved", "Undecidedly", "'Cause I Do Care" and more. 8 tracks in all – and some nice back cover notes by Mike Stax of Ugly Things Magazine.

Cal TjaderHuracan ... LP
Crystal Clear, 1978. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Obscure direct to disc recording that plays at 45 RPM, which means that it's a bit shorter than usual – but the record more than makes up for that defect with its excellent sound and (more importantly) excellent batch of grooves. Cal's vibes are backed by Clare Fischer on electric piano, Willie Bobo on timbales, and a bunch of other good west coast players that include Victor Pantoja, Pancho Sanches, and Gary Foster. Titles include "Funquiado", "Tres Palabras", and "Huracan" – and the album is probably Tjader's best Latin LP of the 70s! LP, Vinyl record album

Jack WhiteLazaretto (180 gram vinyl – with download and 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks) ... LP
Third Man, 2014. New Copy ... $26.99 31.98
The most stylistically sprawling record yet from Jack White! White's trajectory from Detroit garage-blues-punk wunderkind to Nashville record biz provocateur/label magnate is pretty damn impressive – and he really lets his far-reaching impulses fly on Lazzaretto. Unpredictable twists and turns abound, but it's all held together by an undercurrent of pummeling, unpretentious rock and roll, with a rootsy swagger. Ever upping the ante on hella cool vinyl releases, Lazarretto is a 3-speed "Ultra LP" – with a 33 1/3 main track list, and 2 hidden tracks beneath the center labels, one that plays at 45 and one that plays at 78. Oh, and also a hologram visual effect. We're thinking that maybe his next record will summon a genie that grants you 3 wishes. Titles include "Three Women", "Lazaretto", "Temoprary Ground", "Would You Fight For My Love?", "High Ball Stepper", "Just One Drink", "Alone In My Home", That Black Bat Licorice", "Entitlement", "I Think I Found The Culprit" and "Want And Able". LP, Vinyl record album
(A 3-speed "Ultra LP" – with 2 vinyl-only tracks hidden beneath the center labels – one that plays at 78 RPM, and one at 45 RPM! Also includes album download.)

VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts.

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeIl Mio Nome E Nessuno (My Name Is Nobody) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
AMS (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Very strange Morricone score to this even stranger western from the early 70s! Sure, the core of the material is 70s spaghetti scoring, but the instrumentation is incredibly weird – and includes "squishy" electric keyboards, rolling vocal choruses, whistles, clock ticking, and more! There's an incredible amount of humor here, and the soundtrack stands as one of Morricone's more mad moments from a time when he was otherwise fairly subtle in his writing. Bruno Nicolai conducted the work, and titles include "Il Mio Nome E Nessuno", "Uno Strano Barbiere", "Piu Delle Valchirie", and "Con I Migliori Auguri". LP, Vinyl record album

Merge, 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The truly beautiful, and increasingly rare record that modern folk guitar instrumental hero William Tyler recorded under the name Paper Hat! It's impeccable work, influenced by the best of the Takoma Records and similarly outsider-inclined, yet still melodic and hypnotic solo guitar records of the late 60s onward, but very much a distinct work of his own. Wonderful and timeless stuff! Includes side-long gem "Man Of Oran", plus "Parliament Of Birds". "The Green Guitar Kept Smiling", "The Sleeping Prophet", "Hermit Kingdom", "Waltz Of The Crassian Beauties" and "Crystal Palace, Sea Of Glass". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ LionsSoul Riot ... LP
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The Lions seem to get deeper and deeper with each new release – moving past their start as a funk band with a focus on Kingston sounds – into a group who've got a really fresh feel of their own! Sure, some cuts here are great reggae numbers – the kind of mellow, head-nodding cuts The Lions have always given us – but there's also some more complicated elements going on too, these little touches of darkness at times, especially on the rhythms, which can break from obvious patterns into something nicely unique. Plenty of guests help flesh out the tunes – including Malik The Freq Moore, Black Shakespeare, Alex Desert, and Myron Glasper – and titles include "My Girl", "Going Nowhere", "Rhythm Rock", "Feels Good", "At A Loss", "Smoke & Mirrors", and "When It Rains".

Water Wing, 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Key work from one of the great groups of the late 70s female punk scene in the UK – the legendary Poison Girls, headed up by the even more legendary Vi Subversa! Vi's got a vocal approach that's different than some of her contemporaries – nastier, but in a more mature way – which really gives the lyrics this biting quality, especially on political themes – kind of a precursor for the Crass sound a few years to come. Titles include "Old Tarts Song", "Bremen Song", "Under The Doctor", "Reality Attack", and "Political Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene AmmonsBoss Tenor (180 gram 2LP pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1960. Near Mint- 2LP ... $39.99
A soul jazz classic from Gene Ammons – the kind of session that easy made him "boss" on tenor – with a tone and conception that few other players could touch! The set is done in a style that's laidback, but never too loose – bouncing along in that "with conga" style of rhythm that was used strongly at the start of the 60s – with Ray Barretto on percussion, alongside Tommy Flanagan on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The style is nice and echoey – a mode that works well not only here, but on most of the 22 other albums that Ammons went onto record during the next 2 years! Titles include "Close Your Eyes", "Canadian Sunset", "Hittin' The Jug", "Confirmation", and "Blue Ammons". LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie with Lester YoungLester Leaps In ... LP
Epic, Late 30s/1955. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some light wear.)

Titles include "Up In Sidney's Flat", "High Society", "Jackass Blues", "Old Stack O'Lee Blues", "St Louis Blues", "Lord Let Me In The Lifeboat", "Pounding Heart Blues", "Changes Made", "Jazz Me Blues" and "Blues For Tommy Ladiner".

✨✧ Dave BrubeckTime Out (200 gram 4LP set – 45rpm vinyl) ... LP
Columbia/Classic, 1959. Sealed 4LPs (reissue)... $99.99
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz! At the time of the set, Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and the rest had already been making plenty of waves with their creative yet swinging approaches to modern jazz – heard on a number of successful albums for Fantasy and Columbia in the 50s. But with this record, they really knocked one out of the park – blending Desmond's cool alto, Brubeck's unusual piano phrasing, Joe Morello's melodic drum work, and Eugene Wright's pulsating bass into a waltzing, almost modal groove that crossed over to many camps at the time! The classics "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo Ala Turk" were both hits on their own – but all titles are great, and include "Kathy's Waltz", "Strange Medow Lark", "Everybody's Jumpin", and "Pick Up Sticks". LP, Vinyl record album
(Amazing audiophile pressing – 4 LPs, each playing at 45rpm!)

✨✧ Miles DavisKind Of Blue (180 gram 2 x 45rpm pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Classic, 1959. Near Mint- 2LP ... $99.99
What can we say? This is the ultimate Miles Davis album – the one that includes so many songs that we've heard way too much in Starbucks, in retail stores, or at a friend's house who claims to be a "jazz expert", but is really a yuppie dilettante. Yet somehow, over all the years, and all those playings, the record manages to still sound fantastic – a truly inspirational piece of music that's long deserved all the attention it gets! The legendary group on the album includes John Coltrane on tenor, Cannonball Adderley on alto, Bill Evans on piano, and Paul Chambers on bass – working with Miles in a relatively modal style, with brilliant rhythm changes and a wonderful sense of space. The whole thing's sublime – and titles include "Blue In Green", "All Blues", "So What", and "Freddie Freeloader". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisRelaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet (180 gram 2 x 45rpm pressing) ... LP
Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1956. Near Mint- 2LP ... $69.99
One of the classic early Miles Davis & John Coltrane sessions for Prestige – a well-crafted quintet album that shows Miles finding a stronger voice than ever, and Coltrane beginning to emerge as a key force on his own! Backing is subtle and soulful – handled by the trio of Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – and although the tracks are mostly ballads and standards, they're all nicely given the Davis treatment on the set, turned into beautiful new vehicles for jazz imagination and improvisation! Titles include "If I Were A Bell", "I Could Write A Book", "Oleo", and "Woody'n You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Walter Davis Jr.Davis Cup (180 gram 2LP reissue – 45rpm) ... LP
Blue Note/Analogue Productions, 1959. Near Mint- 2LP (reissue)... $29.99
The only Blue Note album ever cut by pianist Walter Davis Jr – but a heck of a hard-swinging set, and possibly his greatest album ever! Although Davis is more frequently heard in trio formation as a leader, this set brings him back to the mode used during some of his bop sideman dates of some years before – two completely solid horn players in the frontline, Donald Byrd on trumpet and Jackie McLean on alto – both blowing with a tremendous amount of soul and spirit on each track! Jackie's nicely sharp edges helps push Davis strongly – and rhythm work by Sam Jones on bass and Art Taylor on drums also add strongly to the punch of the set as well. Titles are all original compositions by Walter – and tracks include "Smake It", "Rhumba Nhumba", "Minor Mind", and "Millie's Delight". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bill EvansWaltz For Debby (180 gram 2LP pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1961. Near Mint- 2LP ... $79.99
An incredible album from Bill Evans – and maybe THE record you need in your collection if you're trying to understand his contribution to jazz! The album's one of Evan's first sides from the Village Vanguard – and features the legendary trio that included Scott LaFaro on bass and Paul Motian on drums – both players who could shake free from conventional rhythmic roles in a piano trio, yet who also support Evans' lyrically modal playing here beautifully! The tracks are a bit longer than Bill's studio sides from the time, allowing for even more magical interplay on the keys – and titles include "My Foolish Heart", "Waltz For Debby", "Detour Ahead", "My Romance", "Some Other Time", and "Milestones".

✨✧ Herbie HancockMaiden Voyage (200 gram 2LP 45rpm pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Analogue Productions, 1965. Near Mint- 2LP (reissue)... $34.99
A brilliant album – and real turning point for Herbie Hancock! After first coming onto the scene as the soul jazz hero between Blue Note funky classics like "Watermelon Man" or "Blind Man, Blind Man" – Herbie emerges here as a concerned modernist with a strand of spirituality that runs deeper than previously expressed. The key track in this vision is his brilliant modal number "Maiden Voyage" – one of those tunes that sounded totally fresh immediately, and which was picked up by many others as a jazz anthem during the 60s. The rest of the album's equally great – and features George Coleman on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – all making for a very hip lineup that really lets Herbie open up stylistically! Other titles include "Dolphin Dance", "Little One", and an original version of "Survival Of The Fittest". LP, Vinyl record album

A holy grail from the prime years of Blue Note hardbop – and one of the first records ever recorded by Clifford Jordan, then a fresh young tenor talent, just blown in from Chicago! The album has Jordan working with an all-star lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Sonny Clark on piano, and Louis Hayes in drums – blowing with a style that is a bit looser than other Blue Notes from the time, with touches of lyrical expression, brought on by the presence of Farmer and Hayes. Great overall – as tight as a bop side, but with a much deeper soul! Titles include "Confirmation", "Laconia", "Soul-Lo Blues", and "Cliff Craft". LP, Vinyl record album

Orgasmo SonoreOmaggio A Bruno Nicolai Ed Alle Sue Musiche Per Il Cinema Giallo ... LP
Cineploit (Austria), 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
Maybe the coolest record ever from this always-great group – one of the best contemporary acts to really get the sound of vintage soundtracks right – working here in a special package that features unusual vinyl, a great cover, and some amazing music within! The tunes are all from older Italian films of the 70s, all composed by the great Bruno Nicolai – but served up here by Orgasmo Sonore in this sublime blend of keyboards, strings, and other great elements – all with the feel of some vintage Ennio Morricone production! The LP plays at 45rpm, for extra-great fidelity – but it still features a total of six tracks that include "Panic In The Elevator", "Magico Incontro", "Sabba", "La Dama Rossa Uccide Sette Volte", "Gatti Rossi In Un Labirinto Di Vetro", and "La Coda Dello Scorpione".

A nice straight batch of tracks from Pepper – and a record that we like more than some of the more "classic" ones on Contemporary! The album's got quite a strange title – Smack Up, a very strange choice, given Pepper's well-known experience as a junkie – and features some edgey work that really pushes Art away from the sweeter sounds of a few years before. There's some slightly off-kilter tracks on the set that really make it sparkle, including Duane Tatro's "Maybe Next Year", Ornette's "Tears Inside", and Harold Land's "Smack Up" – the irony of which, we're sure, was not lost on Art Pepper! Also includes Pepper's own "Las Cuevas De Mario" – and players include Jack Sheldon, Pete Jolly, Jimmy Bond, and Frank Butler. LP, Vinyl record album

A killer quartet session by Brit trumpeter Dizzy Reece, recorded as one of his three American albums for Blue Note during the late 50s! Unlike the other records, which featured larger groups, this album's done with a quartet – which gives Reece a chance to really take over on his solos – blowing with a sense of warm and lyricism that's not heard as strongly on the other records – really getting some great support from a rhythm trio that includes Walter Bishop Jr on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Quite different from some of Dizzy's London work of the time – and with tracks that include "A Ghost Of A Chance", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Blue Streak", "Eb Pob", and a nice version of "Yesterdays".

Quite possibly THE greatest Sonny Rollins album of the early years – or at least the one that has received the most accolades over the years! The record is a brilliant batch of quartet tracks that reinvents bop through Sonny's complicated, yet seemingly automatic solos – an excellent showcase for his razor-sharp talents for improvisation and invention, played with effortless ease, yet still one of the great bar-setting performances of 50s jazz. The group features Tommy Flanagan, Max Roach, and Doug Watkins – and tunes include an original reading of the perennial Rollins' standard "St. Thomas", plus a great version of "Moritat (Mack The Knife)", and the cuts "Strode Rode" and "Blue 7".

A historic meeting between pianist Art Tatum and tenor sax giant Ben Webster – recorded in 1956, but issued here in a special package by Pablo in the 70s! At some level, it's clear that Tatum's the star of the sessions – as most tracks start out with that introspective and often complicated approach to the keys that marks his trio and solo work – but Webster always slides in just in time to keep the record from being a standard Tatum outing – blowing with a crisp tone that's beautifully recorded here, and hardly concerned at all with the presence of Red Callender on bass and Bill Douglass on drums – who are much lower in the mix. Titles include "Night & Day", "Where Or When", "My Ideal", "Gone With The Wind", and "All The Things You Are". LP, Vinyl record album

Alexis ZoumbasLament For Epirus – 1926 to 1928 (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Angry Mom, Late 20s. New Copy ... $18.99
An amazing violinist from Greece, but one who recorded in New York during the 20s – on a host of rare 78rpm material presented in this lavish set! Alexis Zoumbas has a wonderfully melancholy feel to his instrument – a style that mixes virtuostic passages with these deeper, bluer qualities that are more folkloric – often supported with just a bit of work on acoustic bass for the recordings, or a bit of very cool cymbalom as well! The quality of the package and music reproductions puts this one right up there with collections of ethnic 78s on Tompkins Square or Honest Jons – and titles include "Alimbeis", "Tzamara Arvanitiko", "Syrtos Sta Dyo", "Frasia", and "Epirotiko Mirologi". LP, Vinyl record album
