Lorez AlexandriaFor Swingers Only ... LP
Argo, 1963. Good+ ... $19.99
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

✨✧ Lorez AlexandriaSing No Sad Songs For Me ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing album by Lorez Alexandria – probably our favorite-ever work by her! The record features arrangements by Riley Hampton, the Chicago soul genius who did work for a number of the city's best artists – most notably Walter Jackson – and his mixture of soul, strings, and ...

Gene AmmonsJust Jug ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of those shady little sessions that Gene Ammons cut for Argo when he wasn't supposed to be recording for anyone but Prestige – and a great album that never got full circulation because of contract difficulties. The group on the album features organist Eddie Buster, who'd backed Jug or ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Buck ClarkeBuck Clarke Sound ... LP
Argo, 1961. Near Mint- ... $28.99
Fantastic! This amazing record is one of the best albums ever to be released by Argo in the sixties. The great Buck Clarke leads a soulful group of players from Washington, DC that includes the amazing Charles Hampton, who plays flute, alto, and piano – and who contributed most of the ...

Lou DonaldsonPossum Head ... LP
Argo, 1964. Very Good ... $7.99
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 ...

Richard EvansRichard's Almanac ... LP
Argo, 1959. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A rare early trio session from bassist Richard Evans – known much more famously for his late 60s soul and jazz arrangements at Chess! The set's not only unique for it's exposure of Evans as a jazz artist, but it also marks one of the first appearances of pianist Jack Wilson – still a ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original blue label pressing with deep groove – very nice! Cover appears to have an autograph on back, but we can't say for sure.)

✨✧ Art FarmerArt ... LP
Argo, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful album of understated brilliance – one of Art Farmer's early shifts into the sublime, and an easily-blown batch of trumpet tracks that always takes our breath away! There's a sense of relaxed freedom here that's really tremendous – a difference from some of Farmer's more ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer & Benny Golson Jazztet & John LewisJazztet & John Lewis ... LP
Argo, 1961. Very Good+ ... $5.99
We'll be the first to admit that the piano and compositions of John Lewis can sometimes be a bit stiff and academic – but that's definitely not the case on this great little record! The album features interpretations of Lewis' work by the great Farmer/Golson Jazztet – and is a pretty ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ King Fleming TrioStand By ... LP
Argo, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from Chicago pianist King Fleming – a lost talent that had a key influence on more famous players in the scene, but who rarely got his due because he hardly left the Windy City! The set's got a really incredible feel – partly in the gentle groove of Ahmad Jamal, but ... (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

Michael Garrick with Joe Harriott & Shake KeanePoetry & Jazz In Concert – Record 2 ... LP
Argo (UK), 1964. Very Good ... $49.99
A fantastic album of British jazz! The core of the record is two poetry recitations – one by Jeremy Robson and one by Laurie Lee – but in two separate instances, the Michael Garrick trio plays some fantastic hard bop material with guest appearances by Shake Keane and Joe Harriott!

✨✧ Benny GolsonFree ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good ... $34.99
Without a doubt, Benny Golson is one of the most underrated tenorists of his generation – a player with a tone and conception that's always tremendous – but which comes across especially well on this early 60s session for Argo Records! As you might guess from the title, things aren't ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Benny GolsonTake A Number From 1 to 10 ... LP
Argo, 1961. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A record with a gimmick – but one that's totally great, and really unique for the time! The "1 to 10" in the title is the way that the album spins out – as track 1 features Golson blowing solo tenor, track 2 features him in duet, track 3 a trio – and so on, until track ...

Argo/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1956/1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work all around – two rare sessions for Argo, plus additional material recorded for Emarcy! The core Cookin album is quite possibly the best album that Paul Gonsalves ever cut as a leader in the US! The record was cut during a flurry of recordings for Argo that all featured small ...

Bunky GreenTestifyin' Time ... LP
Argo, 1965. Near Mint- ... $29.99
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

Argo/Chess, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groundbreaking work from the legendary Ahmad Jamal – not just in his own career, but in live jazz in general! The album's a classic recording of Jamal's trio with Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums – captured at the Pershing Lounge on the south side of Chicago, where ...
