Lorez AlexandriaFor Swingers Only ... LP
Argo, 1963. Good+ ... $24.99
One of the greatest albums ever from Lorez Alexandria – an ultra-hip singer who recorded for Impulse and King, but who sounds especially wonderful on this rare date for Chess Records! The album's got a groove that definitely lives up to its title – a jazzy, bouncy sort of rhythm that's ... (Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene Ammons & Sonny StittDig Him (aka We'll Be Together Again) ... LP
Argo, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nothing fancy – but some great straight-ahead blowing from Stitt and Jug! The album's a quintet session, with John Houston piano, Buster Williams bass, and George Brown drums providing all the rhythm. But the real focus is on the twin-sax frontline – with Sitt taking up the alto on a ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1961. Very Good+ ... $33.99
Fantastic! This amazing record is one of the best albums ever to be released by Argo in the sixties.

Lou DonaldsonPossum Head ... LP
Argo, 1964. Very Good ... $14.99
A real smoker from Lou Donaldson's years at Cadet – and an organ-driven session with Big John Patton on the Hammond! The record's got a slightly lighter groove than the Patton/Donaldson albums for Blue Note – but that's the great thing about the record, as it's kind of a nice bridge ...

✨✧ Jean DuShonMake Way For Jean DuShon ... LP
Argo, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few rare albums cut by Chicago soul jazz singer Jean DuShon, an artist that Chess really tried to push in the mid 60s, but who never really seemed to make it. This one's a nice set of intimate jazz vocal tracks, sung with the Herman Foster trio, and covering a range of material from ... (Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer & Benny Golson JazztetJazztet At Birdhouse (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Argo/Verve, 1961. Used ... $19.99
One of the best albums ever by this crack soul jazz combo – the mighty Jazztet, an early 60s group led by Art Farmer and Benny Golson! The set was recorded in Chicago, and it features the group hard-grooving through some really well-arranged numbers – lively tunes with a snapping, in-th ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ King Fleming TrioMisty Night ... LP
Argo, 1960. Good ... Just Sold Out!
Moody piano tracks from Chicago's soul jazz underground of the early 60s! King Fleming was one of the city's great underrated pianists, and this 1960 album for Chess/Argo features him playing a nice set of originals and standards, in the style that he would have used in the city's smaller jazz ...

✨✧ Frank FosterBasie Is Our Boss ... CD
Argo (Japan), 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Basie may be his boss, but Frank Foster's definitely his own man – especially working here on this hip little session for Chess Records – a small group date with some key members of the Count's ensemble! There's a bit of the Basie sense of arrangement in the tunes – especially in ... (Jazz) read more CD

Argo/Vocalion (UK), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from the legendary late 60s run of British pianist Michael Garrick – and a fascinating session that shows the full depth of his talents!

Argo/Vocalion (UK), 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark in British jazz – one of the first albums of the 60s to really break from an older English jazz style, and set the stage for countless experiments to come!

Argo/Vocalion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album from pianist Michael Garrick – one of the sublime recordings he made with vocalist Norma Winstone in the late 60s and early 70s! Garrick's approach is really unique – a flowing, almost modal approach that spirals out in a joyously dancing groove – not nearly as ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Al GreyHaving A Ball ... LP
Argo, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although he's made many snoozy records in his time, the early Al Grey albums for Argo are pretty hard swingin', and have a lot of nice surprises. This one's got a very young Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, and the great Dave Burns on trumpet. Tracks are short, with a hard swingin' groove that's still ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chubby JacksonChubby's Back ... LP
Argo, 1957. Very Good+ ... $6.99
With a name like Chubby, the set ought to be a snoozer – but it swings nicely, thanks to some strong bass work by Jackson! The group's a Chicago ensemble, featuring lesser-known players of the 50s – like Vito Price, Cy Touff, Don Lamond, and Jimmy Gourley – plus trombone by Bill ...

✨✧ Ahmad JamalAhmad Jamal's Alhambra ... LP
Argo, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not just a wonderful record for the music, but also for the classic cover image too – a photo of Ahmad Jamal's righteous night club The Alhambra – an Eastern-themed spot on Chicago's Michigan Ave, where Jamal made some incredible music for a few short years! Jamal was one of the few ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1958. Good ... $0.99
Groundbreaking work from the legendary Ahmad Jamal – not just in his own career, but in live jazz in general!

✨✧ Etta JamesEtta James (1962) ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Unlike some of her other early recordings, which tend to be raw screamin' R&B, this album's a beautiful set of ballads and weepers with arrangements by Riley Hampton, who also did stunning work like this for Lorez Alexandria and Walter Jackson. You might be tempted to call the album a sell-out ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo/Jackpot, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
Searing stuff – easily one of Etta James' greatest albums! The set is a non-stop jam, recorded live at the New Era Club in Nashville before a small and screaming crowd – a perfect performance all the way through, one that showcases Etta as she rarely sounded on vinyl during the 1960s. ...

Argo, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two of Chess' baaaaadest ladies together on one single! Etta and Sugar Pie do a great duet on "Do I Make Myself Clear" – a fast stepping number that sorts it all out, showing that the ladies will stand for no malarky!

Groovy little record that has this funky tenor giant playing a bunch of tracks with a Frenchy feel to them.
