A recent session, but a nice one from soul jazz legend Nat Adderley! The set features young lion Vincent Herring on alto, and in a way, the whole thing's got that tight revivalist soul jazz style that graced some of the best young lion sessions of the early 90s. The alto/cornet frontline nicely ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Although the Muse label had a reputation for doing mostly straight ahead sessions, they did manage to come up with some great avant ones, thanks mainly to the production work of Michael Cuscuna. Here, percussionist Barry Altschul is joined by his old Circle bandmate Dave Holland, and free-thinking ... (Jazz) read moreCD
An amazing album! Drummer Roy Brooks leads a crack 70's soul jazz ensemble that includes Woody Shaw, George Coleman, and Cecil McBee – and the group play four long fantastic tracks that are all originals. Titles include "The Free Slave", "Understanding", and "Will ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A sweet bit of funky jazz vocals from Oscar Brown Jr – recorded during his early 70s stay at Atlantic Records, in a style that's very different than his early work! The tracks are all still original numbers by Oscar – penned with that clever bad-rapping approach to the lyrics that ... (Vocalists) 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

Fire ... CD 32 Jazz, Mid 70s. Used ...
A great compilation of tracks from 70's soul jazz reed player Carlos Garnett. Garnett recorded with players like Miles Davis and Norman Connors as a firey sideman, but this set brings together tracks from a number of his different Muse recordings from the 70s – most of which are pretty tough ...

Fantastic material from the late 60's period in which Eddie Harris was using his amazing tone, Atlantic's money, and the deep resources of the Chicago jazz scene to come up with some of the best recordings of his career. The four albums on this CD set – The In Sound, Mean Greens, Tender ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Bar Wars ... CD Muse/32 Jazz, 1977. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's a bit hokey – an obvious play on the Star Wars film that was running in theaters at the time of the record – but the sound is classic Willis Jackson at his finest, recorded in a style that's right up there with his best 60s work for Prestige! The group here is a quintet ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Nothing fancy, but a nice back to basics session from Etta – recorded with backing by a small combo that includes husband Houston Person, and done in the laidback style that always seems to bring out the best in her singing. Other players include Idris Muhammad, Jimmy Ponder, and Sonny ... (Vocalists) read moreCD
Nice reissue of this rare Clifford Jordan session from the mid 70s, recorded for "Dolphy Productions" in Paris, and with a feel and a spirit very similar to his Jordan's Strata East albums from the same time – like Glass Bead Games and In The World! The group is similar to those ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Temporarily Out Of Stock
Martino plays in a 2-guitar quartet – with Bobby Rose backing him up on guitar, plus rhythm accompaniment by Richard Davis and Billy Higgins. The sound's definitely in the trippier, post-hippie style of Martino's work, with a sort of looseness and fluidity that you either love or hate, but a ... (Jazz) read moreCD
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
A smoking little bop set from Sonny Stitt – recorded live at the Keystone in 1981, as sort of a "summit meeting" of horns – one that features Richie Cole and John Handy in the frontline with Sonny! The rhythm section alone is enough to cook this one up nicely – with ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Early 70s magic from Sonny Stitt – two albums recorded in 1972 for the Cobblestone label! First up is Tune Up – a great one from Stitt's post-Prestige years, and a real back-to-basics effort that recalls the genius of his work on Roost! The format is straight and simple – Stitt's ...

A helluva great CD – one that brings together both volumes of the legendary Night At Boomers live dates on Muse Records from the 70s! The core material is a great little session of soul jazz – and very much in a classic mode, but with touches of the Strata East sound of the 70s. ... (Jazz) read moreCD
