Jazzland/OJC, 1962. Used ... $11.99
The soulful tenor of Eddie Lockjaw Davis meets the modernist bop sounds of Johnny Griffin in another one of their fierce two-tenor sides from the early 60s! The group on here includes the always-amazing Horace Parlan on piano, plus some lively drumming from the oft-overlooked Ben Riley. This one's ... (Jazz) read more CD

Prestige, Late 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A seminal bit of early soul jazz guitar work from Tiny Grimes – a player better known for his work in an R&B vein, but an excellent jazz-based talent on this tasty session! Tiny's working here with a group that includes Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor and Ray Bryant on piano, in a mode that ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

An unlikely meeting of talents – but a fantastic one too – and easily one of the most striking dates in the catalogs of both players! Given the bluesy, gritty sounds usually heard from Tiny Grimes guitar, we'd hardly expect him to share a record date with tenorist Coleman Hawkins ... (Jazz) read more CD

Hard to find Riverside LP of this group led by Gigi Gryce running down nice hard bop numbers. There's no dry academic performances here, not that you'd guess that from the line-up, but the title kind of leads you in that direction. Donald Byrd and Gryce are playing nice and hard up front, with ... (Jazz) read more CD

Maybe the title's a bit overly-optimistic – but with a record like this, you can certainly imagine a world in which everybody does like Hampton Hawes! The record's the third in a legendary early run for the Contemporary label – trio material that broke Hawes out of the box and firmly ... (Jazz) read more CD

One of Hampton Hawes' last sessions for Contemporary Records – a wonderful little date that's filled with the bright tones and bold confidence that marked Hamp's piano work in later years!

Brilliant work from that hip 60s period when Hampton Hawes was really stretching out his sound – building on his already-great style of the 50s, by adding in more complex lines and unusual tones – creating far more depth in his music than ever before! In a way, there's a bit of a Bill ... (Jazz) read more CD

Bobby Hutcherson breaks it down in two different ways – solo on the first half of the record, and in a quartet on the rest!

Hard to imagine Etta Jones being lonely and blue – especially when she sounds as great as this!

Although bassist Sam Jones graced some of the best hard bop and soul jazz sessions of the early 60's, he made darn few records as a leader, which is a shame, because he's got a real talent for making a group groove, and for bringing his funky bass out front in a session.
