Big StarBest Of Big Star (180 gram 45 rpm pressing) ... LP
Stax, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99 29.99
Not the first ever Best Of Big Star compilation, but perhaps the best of we've seen – put together with the partipation of drummer Jody Stephens – featuring most of the very best tracks from all three Big Star LPs, recordings that have hardly aged a day since the early 70s! The carefully chosen tracklist touches on all the bands most rewarding facets, and short of being all of the classic original LPs, we'd be hard pressed to recommend a better entry point the band's classic ouvre. Includes the single versions of "In The Street", "Don't Lie To Me", "September Gurls", "Jesus Christ" "Watch The Sunrise" and "O, My Soul", plus "Thirteen", "I'm In Love With A Girl", "Feel", "When My Baby's Beside Me", "Take Care", "Life Is White", "The Ballad Of El Goodo", "Nightime", "Back Of A Car" and "Thank You Friends".

Art BlakeyBig Beat (2LP 180gram 45 RPM pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1960. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $49.99
One of the greatest Art Blakey Blue Note sessions of all time – and perhaps one of the greatest to realize the genius of the Jazz Messengers lineup that included Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bobby Timmons on piano! The trio of young talents are at the height of their early soulful powers here – working with Blakey and bassist Jymie Merritt in a set of tunes that are overflowing with expressive solos, unusual timings, and the Blakey genius for mixing bold statements with personally introspective moments. Nearly every track on the record's a classic – and titles include an early version of Bobby Timmons' "Dat Dere", plus Wayne Shorter's beautiful tunes "Lester Left Town", "Chess Players", and "Sakeena's Vision".

Kenny Burrell & John ColtraneKenny Burrell & John Coltrane (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1958. Sealed 2LP ... $79.99
One of our favorite Kenny Burrell albums – and a record with a much deeper feel than lots of his other work! Kenny cut this album with John Coltrane in 1958 – and the session's a real standout in both of their careers at the time – Kenny's, for being a well-crafted, highly-focused effort – and Coltrane's, for being a unique outing with a guitar, but one that's done with the same deep-spirited sound of his best work for Prestige. The group's a quintet, with Tommy Flanagan, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb in the rhythm section – and titles include "Big Paul", "Lyresto", "Why Was I Born?", "I Never Knew", and "Freight Trane".

✨✧ Ornette ColemanFree Jazz (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Atlantic, 1961. Sealed 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $49.99
The title gets it right – as the album's easily the closest thing to free jazz that Ornette Coleman ever recorded – an album-length improvisation played by a "double quartet" that's overflowing with classic players! The style here is a fair bit like John Coltrane's Ascension album for Impulse – and like that one, the session features Ornette and his contemporaries really stretching out – blowing like never heard before on record, and working in a highly unstructured setting! Other players include Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Scott LaFaro on bass – alongside regular group members Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and both Ed Blackwell and Billy Higgins on drums. One long track – just titled "Free Jazz"! LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny ColesLittle Johnny C (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $49.99
A rare session as a leader from trumpeter Johnny Coles – a player who cut some great work in the groups of James Moody and Gil Evans, but who shines even more brightly on this classic Blue Note album! Coles really has an ear for finding the hippest side of his instrument – and he blows with a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – and certainly far from the mellower tones of his previous leader set for Columbia. This album's got a great mix of hardbop and modern ideas – right up there with the best Blue Note had to offer at the time – and the group's filled with equally hip players who include Joe Henderson on tenor, Leo Wright on alto and flute, Duke Pearson on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and either Pete LaRoca or Walter Perkins on drums. Titles include "Heavy Legs", "Hobo Joe", "Jano", and "Little Johnny C". Very hip, very hard, and very swingin! LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson & The 3 SoundsLD + 3 (2 LP 180gram 45 RPM pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1959. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $49.99
A classic meeting between alto giant Lou Donaldson and Blue Note's crack Three Sounds combo – the great piano trio led by the mighty Gene Harris! The formula was one that Blue Note employed on a number of sessions from the time – and it makes a lot of sense, because the Three Sounds are a very tight rhythm group, just waiting for a strong soloist to front their rolling soulful grooves – in ways that really set sessions like this apart from their standard albums for the label. On this one, the Sounds give Lou a nice tight backing, and he repays the favor by laying down some very tight, very in-the-pocket solos with a good soul jazz groove. Tracks include "Jump Up", "Confirmation", "Smooth Groove", and "Blue Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

Astralwerks, 1973. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... On August 4, 2017
Some of the darkest and most wonderful rock and roll from the 70s! After leaving Roxy Music, Brian Eno came up with this brilliant little set of glammy tracks – nearly every one a gem, filled with screeching guitars, mad production, and excellent lyrical twists. On top of that, he infused the whole thing with a good dose of humor - a key element, since the songs work best when not taken too seriously. Filled with winners – like "Needles In The Camel's Eye", "Blank Frank", "Some Of Them Are Old", "The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch", and "Baby's On Fire". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bill EvansExplorations (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM pressing) ... LP
Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1961. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $79.99
The Bill Evans trio with Scott LaFaro on bass and Paul Motian on drums – a near-perfect lineup that forever raise the bar for jazz piano expression! The title here is certainly apt – because even though many of the tunes are shortish, Evans has a sense of exploration in the way he's approaching the keys – one that still retains some of the lyrically rhythmic traces of his first few records – but which also glides forth into territory that was virtually untapped on record for the time. The revolution here is so subtle, it's easy to miss from the perspective of our generation – but give it a few listens, and the record will open up beautifully! Titles include "Israel", "Haunted Heart", "Elsa", "Nardis", and "I Wish I Knew". LP, Vinyl record album

A classic Verve set, featuring these two aging masters of the tenor, blowing side by side in a small group setting with rhythm backing by Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, and Alvin Stoller. The best tracks have lots of room – plenty of space so that the tenors aren't "encountering" each other in too close of quarters, with space to express themselves freely. Titles include "Blues For Yolande", "Rosita", "Shine On Harvest Moon", and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia/ORG, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $49.99
One of the last great records by Charles Mingus – a set of extremely compelling original compositions, played by a fresh group of younger players, plus a few older masters! The record's got a fire and sense of emotion that's missing from a number of other 70s Mingus sessions – and it's one of the few later albums we'd easily rank right up there with his late 50s and early 60s classics! Orchestrations were partially arranged and conducted with help from Sy Johnson – and soloists include James Moody and Bobby Jones on tenor, Charles McPherson on alto, Snookie Young and Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Roland Hanna on piano. Titles include "The Shoes Of The Fisherman's Wife Are Some Jive Ass Slippers", "Adagio Ma Non Troppo", "The Chill of Death", and "The I Of Hurricane Sue". LP, Vinyl record album

Very fluid later work from Count Basie – a set that has that nice open-ended Pablo Records approach, but which still comes across with that brilliant Basie groove that first emerged most strongly in the 50s! Players are a mix of young and old, and the group includes Grover Mitchell and Booty Wood on trombones, Sonny Cohn and Jim Crawford on trumpets, John Williams on baritone, Eric Dixon on tenor and flute, Kenny Hing on tenor, Chris Woods on alto and flute, Joe Pass on guitar, and Cleveland Eaton on bass. Tracks are on the long side, and titles include "88 Basie Street", "Bluesville", "The Blues Machine", "Contractor's Blues", "Katy", and "Sunday At The Savoy". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic Miles Davis from that pivotal year of 1954 – featuring work from 2 different sessions, both of them great! The title track on the album is a key reading of "Bag's Groove", presented here in two versions, both recorded by a quintet that includes Milt "Bags" Jackson on vibes, Thelonious Monk on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – carving out the tune in a nicely modern idiom. The rest of the set features work by Miles in a quintet with Sonny Rollins and Horace Silver – again with support from Heath and Clarke – on tunes that include 2 versions of "But Not For Me", plus early recordings of Sonny Rollins' standards "Oleo", "Airegin", and "Doxy".

Duke's Big 4 here are a quartet of jazz legends – Joe Pass, Ray Brown, and Louie Bellson – all working with Duke himself to serve up unique small combo versions of older Ellington full band classics! The mix of piano, guitar, bass, and drums is a bit unusual for Ellington – and Pass especially has this sharply ringing tone that really brings a different flavor to many of the numbers – a kind of stepping, pulsating quality that's even in contrast to his other work from this period. Duke's piano augments the angularity, and titles include "Love You Madly", "Cottontail", "The Blues", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Everything But You", and "Just Squeeze Me". LP, Vinyl record album

The set's a bit more mellow than some of Hodges' more firey sets for Verve – but in a good way.

✨✧ Hank MobleyWorkout (2LP 45 RPM pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from Blue Note tenor giant Hank Mobley – a set that really explodes in all the new directions Hank was taking in the 60s! Mobley in the 50s was already the stuff of legend – a tremendous soloist on tenor, and every bit his own man – firmly focused forward with a voice that was already tremendous – but which was turned towards a lot of new ideas with records like this! Both Mobley's phrasing and rhythmic construction are different here than a few years before – still every bit as soulful as ever, but able to open up with richer imagination, especially on the strong original tunes on the set. The group's great – a quintet that offers up both guitar from Grant Green and piano from Wynton Kelly – and rhythm is by the mighty team of Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums. Tracks are longish, with plenty of room for solos – and titles include "Smokin", "Greasin Easy", "Workout", and "Uh Huh". LP, Vinyl record album

An interesting little LP that compiles alternate takes from Monk's classic album for Riverside – Monk's Music – the session that featured the unique twin tenor lineup of John Coltrane and Coleman Hawkins. The album features 4 different alternates of tunes from that set – "Nutty", "Epistrophy", "Functional", and "Off Minor" – plus 2 other tunes played by a quartet that features Monk, Coltrane, Wilbur Ware, and Shadow Wilson – on the tunes "Ruby My Dear" and "Trinkle Trinkle".

With grooves this great, the house must have been full – and the album's a gem of an early live date by Wes Montgomery, recorded in Berkeley with a quartet that includes Johnny Griffin on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums! The tunes have a nicely cooking feel throughout – even when they're more gentle ones – and the record's a good reminder that outside of the studio, Wes could sometimes play with a bit more force on the strings – raspily hitting notes that explode off the guitar with tremendous precision and a good deel of feeling. Titles include the Montgomery originals "Full House", "SOS", and "Cariba", plus the tunes"Blue N Boogie" and "Come Rain Or Come Shine". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ValentinesSound Of The Valentines (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early work from a young Bon Scott – heard here years before his fame in AC/DC, as one of two singers in the mighty Valentines – a late 60s Aussie group with a wonderfully groovy sound! At some level, these guys share a lot with the British beat group scene of the period – a love of elements from American soul and R&B, which sometimes means they're even covering songs from the US, but in a more rocking way – but The Valentines also have a cool approach that often has them shifting lead vocal chores between Scott and Vince Lovegrove, but with the other harmonizing along – which gives them a fuller feel, and a mode that almost reminds us of the earliest Bee Gees material from Australia. Scott's already got some of the rawness in his voice that you'll know and love – and titles include "Can't Dance With You", "Every Day I Have To Cry", "She Said", "On My Mind", "Gloria", "Love Makes Sweet Music", "Sooky Sooky", "I Can Hear The Raindrops", and "Why Me".

A great dip into the earliest, headiest years of the Grateful Dead – served up here in a set that brings together cuts from their first three albums, plus a single as well! The mix of modes here is still mindblowing after all these many years – and even after all the later cliches of the group, too – as there's a time-spanning, genre-stepping quality from the young lineup of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and others – moving through tracks that include the long "That's It For The Other One" suite, plus "The Golden Road To Unlimited Devotion", "Cream Puff War", "Morning Dew", "Born Cross-Eyed", "Cosmic Charlie", "China Cat Sunflower", and "St Stephen" – plus the original 45 rpm single mix of "Dark Star" – quite different than all the long-jamming takes from later years.

A dub landing of massive proportions – served up here on some classic early 80s work by Scientist, who's really making magic in the studio with the sounds of the Roots Radics Band! The tunes are stark, sharp, and very focused – and at some level, the mixologist is maybe keeping himself a bit more in check – to allow for some rootsy currents to flow through, and give the music a surprisingly soulful vibe from time to time – even when the echo's booted up a bit, and spacey sounds start to filter into the mix. Titles include "Attack", "Beaming", "Invaders", "Landing", "Vulcan", "Black Out", "Time Passage", and "Galaxy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

Gene AmmonsBoss Tenor (180 gram 2LP pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1960. Near Mint- 2LP ... $99.99
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

Twin pianos, recorded in a very easy-going setting – just the kind of record that will help you discover a whole new side of Count Basie, and fall in love with the work of Oscar Peterson all over again! We really dig these more laidback sides from the Pablo label in the 70s – and although this album's got a rhythm section (unlike some of Peterson's other meetings with contemporary jazz giants), the feel is still largely guided by the main soloists – especially given that Basie's style of vamping seems to pull in rhythm players John Heard on bass and Louis Bellson on drums. Tracks include "Soft Winds", "Rent Party", "Indiana", "Hey Raymond", "After You've Gone", and "That's The One". LP, Vinyl record album

Childish Gambino once again transcends anything you might be expecting from an actor/musician – this is not some vain star trip at all, but a worthy, boundary-busting effort – and a pretty sizable step away from idiosyncratic, yet accessible hip hop into spacey pop funk! Strong stuff, following his own path in respectable, highly rewarding fashion.

John ColtraneSoultrane (2LP 180gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1958. Near Mint- 2LP ... $79.99
A bold early statement from a young John Coltrane – and an album that really has him expanding his talents as a tenor soloist! Coltrane's working here in open-ended quartet format – with backing from the Red Garland trio that includes Paul Chambers and Art Taylor – on a set of longer tunes that really let the young Trane stretch out on his solos, unobstructed by any other horns in the lineup. There's a nice mix of hardbop ideals, gentle ballads, and personal soul to the set – and titles include Coltrane's classic reading of Tadd Dameron's "Good Bait", plus "I Want To Talk About You", "Russian Lullaby", and "Theme For Ernie".

Miles DavisCookin' With The Miles Davis Quintet (2LP 180 gram pressing - 45rpm) ... LP
Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1957. Near Mint- 2LP ... $99.99
A seminal session from the team of Miles Davis & John Coltrane – not nearly as "cookin" (at least in a blowing session way) as you might guess from the title, but instead a beautiful example of the lyrically modern explorations the pair created together! Rhythm is by the trio of Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – but the horn work of Davis and Coltrane are clearly the starring attraction on the set! Titles include "Tune Up", "Blues By Five", and "Airegin" – plus the pair's classic reading of "My Funny Valentine". LP, Vinyl record album

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
(Beautiful 180 gram 2LP pressing from 1995 on Classic. Cover has bumped corners.)

Miles DavisSteamin' With The Miles Davis Quintet (2LP 180gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1956. Sealed 2LP ... $79.99
An early pairing of Miles Davis & John Coltrane – one of the duo's mid 50s classics for Prestige, as you might guess from the verb in the title! And although "Steamin" might be a word that's a bit too firey to describe the action going on here, the album's got a tremendous sense of presence throughout – as Davis' cooler trumpet is matched with Trane's earthier solo work – all supported by Red Garland trio backing in a style that's as near-classic as it comes for 50s jazz. Titles include "Diane", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "When I Fall In Love", and "Salt Peanuts". LP, Vinyl record album

Brian EnoAnother Green World (2LP 45rpm pressing) ... LP
Island/Astralwerks, 1975. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... On August 4, 2017
Eno at the crux of his career – hanging perfectly between the guitar-heavy glam of earlier years, and the spacey electronics of later ones. The album is one of his last to feature real rock songs, and it mixes straighter styles with more complex electronic soundscapes, resulting in some wonderfully cold and abstract material that presages changes that wouldn't hit music for another 10 years. Titles include "Golden Hours", "The Big Ship", "St. Elmos Fire", "Sky Saw", "Spirits Drifting", and "Becalmed". LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor/Astralwerks, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... On August 4, 2017
The four rock LPs Eno cut in the mid to late 70s stand as the perfect of example of art rock that didn't succumb to the excesses of the prog movement, and have thus stood the test of time far better than anything of that generation. This is the last of those 4 lps, recorded before eno dove headlong into "ambience" and laid the template for chillout room music to follow many years later. . . Includes the tracks "No One Receiving", "Kurt's Rejoinder", "King Lead Hat", and "Here He Comes". LP, Vinyl record album

Brian EnoTaking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) (2LP 45rpm pressing) ... LP
Island/Astralwerks, 1974. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... About August 4, 2017
A great set of arty pop, or intellectual rock, or post glam whatever you feel like calling it – a completely unique record all the way through! The set is one of Eno's classics from the 70s, with his wry take on music and lyrics, and a nice dark edge to the proceedings. Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera figures heavily in the band, and the 10 tracks here are about as great as anything you'll find on another record issued that year – including "Burning Airlines Give You So Much More", "Back In Judy's Jungle", "The Fat Lady Of Limbourg", "Mother Whale Eyeless", "The Great Pretender", "Third Uncle", "Put A Straw Under Baby", "The True Wheel", "China My China", and "Taking Tiger Mountain".

Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1963. Near Mint- 2LP ... $49.99
A great west coast live date from Bill Evans – one that showed that his magic on the keys was equally at home in LA as it was in New York! The session's especially noteworthy for the presence of drummer Larry Bunker – a great player who worked on countless recordings, both jazz and non-jazz, but who hits a new level here with the Evans Trio – one that almost matches that of Paul Motian for his sensitivity and lyrical interplay with Evans' piano and the bass of Chuck Israels! Titles include "Blues In F", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "The Boy Next Door", "Swedish Pastry", and "Round Midnight". LP, Vinyl record album

Bill EvansInterplay (2LP 180 gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1962. Near Mint- 2LP ... $49.99
A real standout in the Bill Evans catalog for Riverside – and that's saying a lot, given how important all of his Riverside albums are! The session's a rare quintet outing for Evans – one that breaks the mode of the usual trio format by adding in Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and Jim Hall on guitar – alongside rhythm players Percy Heath on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – already a unique enough match for Evans' talents. In a way, the record's one of those sessions that Riverside would sometimes do – pairing a key new voice as a leader with others in an all-star group – but in another way, it's also a return to the sound that first brought Evans' to a wider audience in the 1957 and 1958 years – when he was working in non-trio groups with more famous players – adding his unique piano stylings to their (then) better-known solo modes. The pairing of Evans and Hall has been beautifully documented on other records – and sounds equally great here – but the real treat is Freddie Hubbard's horn, which often lays back on most of the tracks, then bursts in with a brashness that really ignites some of the tunes! He's playing a bit muted here, trying to go for that Miles/Evans combination from the late 50s – but that's plenty ok with us, as we love those records a lot. Titles include "When You Wish Upon A Star", "You & The Night & The Music", "I'll Never Smile again", "You Go To My Head" and the Evans original, "Interplay". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie McLeanBluesnik (45rpm – 2LP 180gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1960. Near Mint- 2LP (reissue)... $39.99
A crackling date from Jackie McLean – a set that's much more hardbop than some of his other Blue Note work – filled with fire, far from the 50s – and really pointing the way towards his new directions to come! There's a hint of modernism in the mix, mostly on the tone from McLean's alto sax – but most numbers are forward-thinking, and played with a sense of perfection that's pure Blue Note all the way through. Group members include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Kenny Drew on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums – and titles include "Cool Green", "Torchin", "Bluesnik", "Drew's Blues", and "Blues Function".

NirvanaIncesticide (180 gram pressing – 2 x 45rpm LP) ... LP
Geffen, 1992. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $43.99 49.98
Nirvana's riveting Incesticide – which at the time, looked like a mere placeholder for Geffen to sate the suddenly massive new fanbase of the band, between proper albums – but it turned out to be nearly as essential as anything they'd ever put out! A great batch of songs that are as fresh as ever, thanks to them getting comparatively little air time, as opposed to the Nevermind and In Utero hits. Titles include "Sliver" (our pick for the greatest Nirvana song ever – and their most classic punk rock-styled song), "Stain", "Been A Son", "Son Of A Gun", "Molly's Lips", "Beeswax", "Downer", "Aero Zeppelin", and "Big Long Now".

Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins & The Contemporary Leaders (2LP 180 gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Contemporary/Analogue Productions, 1958. Near Mint- 2LP ... $34.99
One of Sonny's brilliant west coast sessions for Contemporary – records that shouldn't sparkle as much as they do, but which actually stand with his best work of the 50s! Sonny's blowing in front of a session of "leaders" that includes Hampton Hawes, Barney Kessel, Leroy Vinnegar, Shelly Manne, and Victor Feldman, who plays vibes on one track. Sonny's the real leader here, though – as his bold, proud tenor tone really takes front seat, carving lines that never get tired, bringing a sparkle into tunes like "You", "How High The Moon", "I've Found A New Baby", "The Song Is You", and "I've Told Ev'ry Little Star". Heck, even with songs like those, the album should be weak – but there's an undeniable magic that really makes it great! LP, Vinyl record album

Ben WebsterBen Webster At The Renaissance (2LP 180 gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Contemporary/Analogue Productions, 1960. Near Mint- 2LP ... $99.99
A previously unreleased live date from late in the career of Ben Webster – recorded at The Renaissance in Hollywood in 1960, but unissued until nearly 25 years later! The group features Jim Hall on guitar, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Frank Butler on drums – and tracks are all longish, and live-feeling – with that sense of fragility that marked some of Webster's later recordings in this mode, and even further deepened the humanity in his tone. And while the recording quality is definitely "live" at times, Ben's tone comes through loud and clear – different than on some of the tighter Verve recordings of a few years before, but in a way that's really great. Titles include "Georgia On My Mind, "Caravan", "Stardust", and "Ole Miss Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Pablo/Analogue Productions, 1975. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Count Basie trio set – the second meeting of the Kansas City Three, a combo that features Ray Brown on bass an Louis Bellson on drums! Basie's really great here – out front, and moving with modes that are quite different than his fuller group sessions – surprisingly sensitive at points, even though still imbued with all of his trademark swing! Bellson's touch on the kit really helps – punctuating things, while never going too far at all – a nice punch, right when needed – and Ray Brown proves once again that he's just the right fit for just about any combo. Titles include "Racehorse", "Blues For Eric", "Draw", "Sandman", "If I Could Be With You For One Hour Tonight", and "I Surrender Dear". LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1958. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Everybody Digs Bill Evans – or at least it certainly seems that way from the cover endorsements by Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, and Ahmad Jamal – but the real proof is in the record, and the set is a great one from Bill's classic years on Riverside! Evans is at the peak of his early powers here – working with a straightforward rhythm combo that features Sam Jones on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but still hitting those beautifully fluid, beautifully spacious lines that set his playing apart from most who'd come before him. Tracks include 3 solo numbers – "Lucky To Be Me", "Peace Piece", and the very short "Epilogue" – plus trio tracks "Night & Day", "Minority", "Tenderly", and "Oleo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Un-numbered edition.)
