✨✧ Cat AndersonEllingtonia (ALA pressing) ... LP
ALA, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite an obscure date from trumpeter Cat Anderson – done for the tiny Wynne label in 1959, and in a great small group approximation of the Duke Ellington spirit! Anderson's trumpet is set nicely in a very hip little group – with players who include Ray Nance on violin, Quentin Jackson ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black Voices (aka The Watts Prophets)On The Street In Watts ... LP
ALA, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A chilling statement from the west coast scene of the 70s – the first album from The Watts Prophets, the ultra-powerful group who emerged from the LA turmoil of the 60s. Like the Last Poets, the group blends together righteous spoken word passages and some spare rhythms and a touch of jazz ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brothers By ChoiceBrothers By Choice (She Puts The Ease Back Into Easy) (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
ALA/KTI (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best funky soul albums to come from the LA scene of the 70s – a relatively obscure indie set, but one that's shone brightly for years, thanks to attention from a host of global DJs! The style here is partly clubby, partly funk – with lots of jazzy touches that come from the ... (Soul) read more CD

Dizzy Gillespie with Lalo SchifrinLive At The Monterey Jazz Festival ... LP
ALA, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A great little live set from the time that Dizzy had Lalo Schifrin playing piano in his group – and one that we think was recorded much earlier (early 60s?) than the 1979 date on the cover! The tracks are long and Latin-inflected – very much like the studio work the pair did together ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

ALA/Water, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
A rare bit of hardcore poetry by the Watts Prophets – the legendary LA group who were kind of a west coast answer to the Last Poets! The group have a sound that's as striking as the best early work by The Last Poets – a hard-hitting blend of poetry, rhythms, and righteous energy – ... (Soul) read more CD
