We never tire of the saxophone work of Sonny Criss – and this mid 70s gem is a perfect example of his brilliance! Sonny's sound on alto here is completely his own – raspily, soulful style that's really unique – and which draws strongly from Criss' rich life experience, including ... (Jazz) read moreCD
The legendary meeting of the two biggest Brazilian keyboard talents of the 70s – Joao Donato and Eumir Deodato – coming together in beautifully funky formation! The sound is a great blend of the moody electric work of Donato's classic Quem E Quem album, and some of the fuller, funkier ... (Brazil) read moreCD
Two tenor greats pay tribute to a host of other tenor greats – but with results that are quite different than you might expect! The album's hardly the type that just revisits familiar cliches from tenor giants of years past – and instead, the team of Houston Person and Teddy Edwards ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Despite the stupid name (or perhaps because of it), this is one of the great lost sessions of the 60s! Drummer Pete LaRoca originally cut this set for the tiny Douglas label, and the session's an amazing bit of modernist jazz that features a rare non-Sun Ra appearance by tenorist John Gilmore. ...

Pat's opening up his guitar lines here, and playing in a freer, post-Coltrane way than on his earlier albums. He's backed up here by Eddie Green on electric piano, plus Tyrone Brown on bass and Sherman Ferguson on drums. Tracks include "Impressions", "Consciousness", and " ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Martino plays in a 2-guitar quartet – with Bobby Rose backing him up on guitar, plus rhythm accompaniment by Richard Davis and Billy Higgins.

A little Houston Person on the side – but more than enough to make up a main course too! The set features Person playing tenor on a host of albums he produced for Muse Records in the late 80s and 1990s – mostly dates issued under other players' names, but also featuring a few that ...

An excellent bop side that finds Stitt and his sidemen still at the top of their game, despite the fact that the date was rather late in many of their careers. While others were exploring electric jazz, Stitt, Joe Newman, Duke Jordan, Sam Jones and Roy Brooks, lay out six sides of crisp hard bop: ... (Jazz) read moreCD
