✨✧ AirAir Time ... LP
Nessa, 1977. Very Good ... $18.99
One of the best albums ever by this legendary Chicago trio – a great example of the way that records on the Nessa label can really get to the heart of artists' intentions! The trio of Henry Threadgill on reeds, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Steve McCall on percussion have never sounded better ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoLes Stances A Sophie ... LP
Nessa/Universal Sound (UK), 1970. Near Mint- (reissue)... $24.99
Probably the greatest album ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – and also one of their rarest! The album was cut for Pathe Marconi in Paris in 1970, and was the soundtrack to a film that was as obscure as the album. The group's never been finer – and plays with a creative tightness ...

✨✧ Bobby Bradford/Frode Gjerstad QuartetSilver Cornet ... CD
Nessa, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The great Bobby Bradford recorded famously for the Nessa label backin the 70s – but here he's heard in the company of some younger players on a contemporary recording – one that shows that his fire hasn't dimmed at all! The group's a quartet – with Frode Gjerstad on alto and ... (Jazz) read more CD

Roscoe Mitchell and the Sound EnsembleSnurdy McGurdy & Her Dancin' Shoes ... CD
Nessa, 1981. Used ... $11.99
A really wonderful album by Roscoe Mitchell and his semi-electric "sound ensemble" – a group that's as devoted to the exploration of sonic space as they are the expression of improvised jazz. The work's got a wonderfully fragile quality – like some of the best Mitchell work ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Roscoe Mitchell Art EnsembleCongliptious ... LP
Nessa, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
We're not sure what "congliptious" means – but to us, it's always been the title of this excellent early session from reedman Roscoe Mitchell! The sessions here were recorded in 1968, at the Ter-Mar (Chess) Studios in Chicago – and they document a key coming-together of ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hal RussellHal Russell NRG Ensemble (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Nessa, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mindblowing moment on the Chicago avant scene of the 80s – a key flowering of the talents of Hal Russell – a musician who'd been working the Windy City since the early 60s, yet who really came into his own in these later years! Hal challenges both the AACM and the European ... (Jazz) read more CD

Nessa, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
Mad music from the legendary NRG Ensemble – a key early force in Chicago's avant jazz scene in the 80s, teamed here with the mighty reedman Charles Tyler! The group itself is already heavy on dynamic reeds – with leader Hal Russell on tenor and Chuck Burdelik on tenor, alto, and ... (Jazz) read more CD

Ira SullivanCircumstantial (plus bonus track) ... CD
Nessa, 1977. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
An overlooked later gem from Chicago trumpeter Ira Sullivan – maybe some of the greatest music he ever recorded, thanks to the freewheeling vibe and strong artist respect of the Nessa label! Sullivan's working here on a variety of horns – trumpet, flugelhorn, flute, and soprano sax ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Charles TylerSaga Of The Outlaws ... CD
Nessa, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous 70s album from Charles Tyler – one recorded with a rich, raw tone that's simply mindblowing! Tyler here has all of the deep soul we first came to love during his ESP years, but also a sound that's a bit more focused too – one that's extremely powerful, and boldly righteous ...
