✨✧ 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! The set's got Dorothy right out front in a trio setting – working with bassist Herman Wright and drummer John Tooley – in a wonderfully jazzy take on the sound of ...

Milt BucknerMighty High ... LP
Argo, 1959. Very Good ... $3.99
Sweet and slow-burning organ from the great Milt Buckner – a really simple session overall, but one with lots of magical touches! Milt plays with a tone that's much lighter than a lot of his contemporaries on the Hammond – not as many tricks as Jimmy Smith, and perhaps more integrated ... (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

✨✧ Kenny BurrellSoulero ... CD
GRP/Argo, 1966/1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great selection of tracks that Kenny recorded for the Argo/Cadet label in the mid 60s – some of his grooviest work from the decade, with a lean sound that has him soloing brilliantly in rhythmic settings that bring out the best of his soulful side! A number of tracks were arranged with ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Art Farmer & Benny Golson JazztetJazztet At Birdhouse (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Argo/Verve, 1961. Used ... $4.99
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

Argo/Chess, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
Landmark work by one of the greatest jazz outfits of the early 60s! Art Farmer and Benny Golson were both known as well-composed players during the 50s – strongly soulful, but often with a fine sense of arrangement that usually tended towards the lyrical side of things.

Herman Foster TrioReady & Willing ... LP
Argo, 1963. Near Mint- ... $49.99
A rare batch of soul jazz piano trio material by Herman Foster – a player who's probably best known to folks for his excellent work with Lou Donaldson during the early 60s. The feel of this material is very similar to Foster's backing of Donaldson – sans horns – with a rolling ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michael GarrickTroppo ... CD
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

✨✧ Bunky GreenTestifyin' Time ... LP
Argo, 1965. Very Good- ... $11.99
A really great little record – and one that goes way past the hokey soul jazz reference you might guess from the title! Bunky Green's definitely "testifyin" on the set – but he's really moving past 60s soul jazz cliches, and never falling into some of the too-gospelly notes ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Al GreyBoss Bone ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good ... $9.99
Soul jazz trombone session, recorded in Chicago, with players like John Young on piano, Leo Blevins on guitar, and Ike Isaacs on bass.

✨✧ Al GreyThinking Man's Trombone ... LP
Argo, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Given that Grey was one of those players who tried for more of a "gutbucket" sound on the trombone, we're not sure that we'd agree with the title's assessment of him as the "thinking man" – but we can say that the album's a pretty darn great batch of soul jazz groovers, ...

Johnny GriffinJohnny Griffin (aka JG) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Argo/Verve (Japan), 1956. Used ... $29.99
Excellent early work by Johnny Griffin – a rare quartet session recorded in Chicago, with the same lineup (Junior Mance & Wilbur Ware) that appeared with on Ware's legendary Chicago Scene album! The tracks are straight-ahead quartet hardbop – short, but with great tenor work by ... (Jazz) read more CD

Argo, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nicely expanded take on the Ahmad Jamal sound of the early 60s – one that adds in guitar from Ray Crawford and violin from Joe Kennedy to Jamal's usual trio grooving!
