✨✧ Fred AndersonMissing Link ... LP
Nessa, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A well-titled set, given that Fred Anderson's been a missing link in Chicago jazz for many years – a bold tenorist with qualities that reach back to the heavy sax generation of the 50s, and a creative improvisor who's kept the AACM ideals alive and well in the Windy City for years! The ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoLes Stances A Sophie (Nessa pressing) ... LP
Nessa, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ...

(Original pressing! Cover has light wear and a small mark from sticker removal.)

✨✧ Lester BowieNumbers 1 & 2 ... LP
Nessa, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by Lester Bowie as a leader – and a set that stands in importance right next to the early Delmark AACM sides by Anthony Braxton and Roscoe Mitchell! Plus, the album's almost an early Art Ensemble of Chicago effort, given the lineup – which ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby Bradford with John Stevens & The SpontaneousBobby Bradford With John Stevens & The Spontaneous Music Ensemble – Vol 1 ... LP
Nessa, 1971/1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
An unlikely, but amazing meeting of the avant jazz minds – a classic set that has LA trumpeter Bobby Bradford coming into play with the UK Spontaneous Music Ensemble, led by drummer John Stevens! The material was recorded, almost spontaneously, on a holiday trip Bradford made to London in ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Von FreemanVonski Speaks – Jazzfest Berlin 2002 ... CD
Nessa, 2002. Used ... $9.99
One of the most compelling Von Freeman recordings we've ever heard – and one of the few to actually capture the real performance presence of the legendary Chicago tenorist! The date was recorded in Berlin, but it's got a homegrown feel that takes us right back to Von's famous Tuesday night ... (Jazz) read more CD

Roscoe MitchellL-R-G/The Maze/S II Examples ... CD
Nessa, 1978. Used ... $9.99
A great set of recordings from the 70s that feature Roscoe Mitchell in a number of different settings. "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

Roscoe Mitchell and the Sound EnsembleSnurdy McGurdy & Her Dancin' Shoes ... LP
Nessa, 1981. Near Mint- ... $39.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithProcession Of The Great Ancestry ... CD
Nessa, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith – an early 80s session, but one that we'd rank with some of his most-together work ever! The album's a mixture of spare modes and some surprising group elements – a set that often has Smith blowing beautifully on trumpet or flugelhorn, ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithSpirit Catcher ... CD
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 CD

✨✧ Ira SullivanCircumstantial (plus bonus track) ... CD
Nessa, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
