✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoEarly Combinations ... CD
Nessa, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An important pre-Art Ensemble Of Chicago moment – one that has most of the group coming together in a pair of rare recordings in the home of Lester Bowie – already sounding amazingly creative as a unit! The sound is almost freer than later work by the group – or certainly at the ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Bobby Bradford/Frode Gjerstad QuartetSilver Cornet ... CD
Nessa, 2014. Used ... 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

Von FreemanHave No Fear (plus bonus track) ... CD
Nessa, 1975. Used ... $11.99
One of the best studio albums ever from the legendary Von Freeman – and a date that really captures some of the careful essence of his live performances in Chicago! Unlike the previous Atlantic album, which tried to fit Von into a more expected bag, this easygoing Nessa session really lets ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Warne MarshAll Music ... CD
Nessa, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful later album from 50s cool jazz saxophonist Warne Marsh – one that really has an incredible focus on his tone! With his combination of a warm full tone and cool post-Tristano phrasing, Marsh has one of the most singular voices on the tenor, and one of our favorites! This mid 70s ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Roscoe MitchellL-R-G/The Maze/S II Examples ... CD
Nessa, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock

"The Maze" has him playing with 8 percussionists (including Braxton, Malachi Favors, Joseph Jarman, and Henry Threadgill) in a 20 minute long moody choppy piece. "L-R-G" is a ... (Jazz) read more CD

Nessa, 1977. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A seminal session from Roscoe Mitchell – beautiful work recorded for the small Nessa label, and a real testament to the fragile beauty of his music! Some of the tracks are solo, and others feature Roscoe in shifting groups with other AACM players – a duet with bassist Malachi Favors, ... (Jazz) read more CD

Roscoe Mitchell and the Sound EnsembleSnurdy McGurdy & Her Dancin' Shoes ... CD
Nessa, 1981. Used ... $9.99
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

✨✧ Leo SmithSpirit Catcher ... LP
Nessa, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really haunting work from Leo Smith – a key 70s session that features some of his sharpest trumpet work on record, plus some unusual instrumentation that really makes the album stand out! Half the tracks feature some wonderful vibes from Bobby Naughton – spare and dark-sounding, very ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ira SullivanCircumstantial (plus bonus track) ... CD
Nessa, 1977. New Copy ... $9.99 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
