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. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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

✨✧ Buck ClarkeBuck Clarke Sound ... LP
Argo, 1961. Used ... 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 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 ...

Art FarmerArt ... LP
Argo, 1960. Very Good ... $19.99
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 JazztetBig City Sounds ... LP
Argo, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
Massively soulful, massively stepping – and one of the greatest albums ever from the team of Art Farmer and Benny Golson! The record sparkles with an amazing edge – rhythm totally in place from the trio of Cedar Walton, Tommy Williams, and Albert Heath – and horns braced over the ...

✨✧ Art Farmer & Benny Golson JazztetJazztet At Birdhouse ... LP
Argo, 1961. Near Mint- ... $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 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 TrioMisty Night ... LP
Argo, 1960. Used ... Temporarily 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 ...

King Fleming TrioStand By ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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

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

✨✧ 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, ...

✨✧ Illinois JacquetMessage ... LP
Argo, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really hard groover from Illinois Jacquet's later years on Chess – a solidly smoking session that features plenty of organ and guitar! There's a gutbuckety groove here that's a lot like some of Willis Jackson's best work on Prestige at the time – a style that's based around the ... (Jazz) 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. ...

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