✨✧ Gene AmmonsJust Jug ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Dorothy AshbyDorothy Ashby ... LP
Argo, 1961. Very Good ... $79.99
Although Dorothy Ashby cut a number of funky groovy records for the Cadet/Argo label at the end of the 60s, this was her first early effort for the label – and it's a much straighter album of jazz, although still quite nice. The setting is one of the sparest for Dorothy's early records ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Benny Bailey, Ake Persson, & OthersMusic Of Quincy Jones ... LP
Argo, 1960. Used ... Temporarily 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Argo, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 DonaldsonCole Slaw ... LP
Argo, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
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. Very Good ... $5.99
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

✨✧ Art Farmer & Benny Golson Jazztet & John LewisJazztet & John Lewis ... LP
Argo, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Art Farmer/Benny GolsonMeet The Jazztet ... LP
Argo, 1960. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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. With this group, ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Bunky GreenTestifyin' Time ... LP
Argo, 1965. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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. Used ... Out Of Stock
Soul jazz trombone session, recorded in Chicago, with players like John Young on piano, Leo Blevins on guitar, and Ike Isaacs on bass. The groove is tight and hard, and Grey wrote a lot of catchy originals for the session. Titles include "Tacos & Grits", "Salty Mama", ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Al GreyHaving A Ball ... LP
Argo, 1963. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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

Al GreySnap Your Fingers ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Really wonderful work from trombonist Al Grey – sounding hipper here than at any other point in his career! One of the great reason for Al's sound here is the presence of tenorist Billy Mitchell – a partner with Al in the Basie band, and a great player who gives just about any session ...
