Pee Wee Russell QuartetAsk Me Now! ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used ... $8.99
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover!

Impulse/GRP, 1965. Used ... $16.99
One of the best Shepp records ever, and one of his most successful blends of the disparate influences that comprised his style.
