Lorez AlexandriaDeep Roots ... LP
Argo, 1962. Good ... $14.99
One of the greatest records ever recorded by vocalist Lorez Alexandria – and a perfect summation of her rich talents as a singer! Backing is by a small Chicago trio that includes John Young on piano, Vernel Fournier on drums, and George Eskridge on bass – but the arrangements of the ...

✨✧ Gene Ammons & Sonny StittDig Him (aka We'll Be Together Again) ... LP
Argo, 1961. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Dorothy AshbyDorothy Ashby (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Argo/Doxy, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most stripped-down albums from legendary jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby – and one of her earliest records too!

✨✧ Benny Bailey, Ake Persson, & OthersMusic Of Quincy Jones ... LP
Argo, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent album that's a perfect document of the strong impact that Quincy Jones had in the transatlantic jazz scene of the late 50s and early 60s. The set was recorded in 1960, and features two players that Quincy would leave behind in Europe to have a huge influence on the scene. Trumpeter ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny BurrellNight At The Vanguard ... CD
Argo/Verve, 1959. Used ... $5.99
A hip live date from Kenny Burrell – recorded with a trio that includes Richard Davis on bass and Roy Haynes on drums – both of whom help Kenny find a groove that's a bit lighter and more fluid than usual! The rhythms here are quite gentle, almost spare at times – and always ... (Jazz) read more CD

Lou DonaldsonCole Slaw ... LP
Argo, 1964. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Poppa Lou in a straight soul jazz format, recorded in the mid 60's, between his two stints for Blue Note. He's playing here with his solid combo that includes Herman Foster on piano, and they're backed up by Ray Baretto on conga, for a nice rolling groove. Tracks include "Soul Gumbo", ...

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonPossum Head ... LP
Argo, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ...

Argo, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A killer by Lou Donaldson – one of his earliest sides for the Argo label, recorded right after his landmark organ jazz sides for Blue Note – Natural Soul and Here 'Tis – and like those, recorded with a lineup that includes Big John Patton on organ!

✨✧ 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

Argo, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 ...

Argo/Vocalion (UK), 1974. New Copy ... 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 GreyAl Grey/Billy Mitchell Sextet ... LP
Argo, 1961. Very Good ... $19.99
Despite what you might think of trombonist Al Grey and his Basie-ist leanings, his albums with tenor player Billy Mitchell are some of the finest that Argo recorded during the early 60s – and this album's one of the best of the bunch! The album was presented by Metronome, and features a live ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Al GreyHaving A Ball ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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

✨✧ Shakey HortonSoul Of Blues Harmonica ... LP
Argo, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
With a record like this, it's clear that Shakey Horton's the soul of blues harmonica – if not the king as well!

✨✧ Illinois JacquetBosses Of The Ballad ... LP
Argo, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Illinois Jacquet's gutsy tenor sound is restrained a bit in this beautiful set of Cole Porter ballads, played with accompaniment by a small orchestra of woodwinds and strings – but the sound is great throughout, thanks to some wonderfully deep tones and great production!
