✨✧ Bud PowellStrictly Powell ... CD
RCA (UK), 1956. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Strictly Bud Powell, in the best sense of the word – as the album's a sharp batch of trio tracks recorded for RCA in the 50s, and a great showcase for Bud's firey talents on the piano! The rhythm combo features bold work on drums from Art Taylor, alongside the bass of George Duvivier – ... (Jazz) read more CD

Ernest RanglinGuitar In Ernest ... CD
RCA/Dub Store (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $16.99 22.99
Excellent early material from guitarist Ernest Ranglin – a player you may know better from his famous reggae and rocksteady session work of the 60s and 70s – but who sounds equally great hear in a straight jazz format too! The album's got a tight small combo approach – with very ... (Jazz) read more CD

Henri ReneMusic For Bachelors ... CD
RCA/Rev-Ola (UK), 1956. New Copy ... $3.99
A classic album of 50s mood music – partially for its famous cover image of Jayne Mansfield on the telephone! But the music's pretty great too – less of the swinging, dynamic sounds you might guess from the "bachelor" in the title – and more in the mellower, romantic ... (Now Sound) read more CD

Buddy RichBuddy Rich Plays & Plays & Plays ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A surprisingly great one from Buddy – full of live, liveliness, and energy – but also coming across with a depth that goes beyond simple Rich big band sounds. The album was handled by producer Norman Schwartz, and looks like it was originally recorded for his Gryphon label, but ... (Jazz) read more CD

Buddy RichRich In London – Live At Ronnie Scott's ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
Crackling live energy from Buddy Rich – recorded at Ronnie Scott's nightclub in London, and with a sound that recalls some of Buddy's best from the 60s! The group is plenty great – and the attraction here goes way beyond just Buddy's famous work as a leader. As with other Rich albums ... (Jazz) read more CD

RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock

✨✧ Bjarne Rostvold TrioTricotism ... CD
RCA/Be! (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the usual album you might expect from a group with a trio in the name – as there's no piano in the mix, and instead the album features some sparkling trumpet from the great Allan Botschinsky – heard here at the height of his youthful, modern powers! The combo's led by drummer ... (Jazz) read more CD

George RussellJazz Workshop (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA (UK), 1956. New Copy ... $8.99
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe! Russell's trying out some of his new tonal ideas here – and has a group that's very well-chosen for the project – with Art ... (Jazz) read more CD

RCA/Be! (Germany), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Landmark work from the Finnish scene of the 60s – one of those ultra-rare European jazz records that collectors have dug for decades!

Gil Scott-HeronRevolution Will Not Be Televised ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
An 80s collection, but one that's filled with gems from Gil Scott-Heron's legendary early years at Flying Dutchman – a time when he was recording some of his most impressively righteous material ever!

Nina SimoneHere Comes The Sun ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
Classic RCA work from the great Nina Simone – and an album that definitely shows Nina hitting more of the soul spectrum than some of her folk and jazz work of the 60s! The set's got these wonderful arrangements from Harold Wheeler – a bit electric, and done in a way that takes familiar ... (Vocalists) read more CD

The mighty Lonnie Liston Smith – sounding just as great live as in the studio!

The whole thing's wonderful – with loads of ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ SpringSpring (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Not the obscure Brian Wilson project of the same name, but an obscure UK group who may well even be cooler overall! Spring only ever cut this one debut album for RCA in the early 70s, but it's a gem from the time – not just for the band's sense of singing and songwriting, but also for it's ... (Rock) read more CD

Amii StewartAmii Stewart ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $8.99 13.98
A surprisingly obscure album from 70s disco diva Amii Stewart – a set that was recorded for RCA in the early 80s, but never issued in the US at the time!

RCA (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About July 6, 2016
A sublime 70s groover from the great Tamba Trio! This one works off of the expanded sound that the bossa jazz combo were forging on their late 60s work for CTI – adding in some more complicated arrangements by Luiz Eca to the regular piano/bass/percussion groove, pushing the sound into a ...

✨✧ Tamba TrioTamba Trio (1975) ... CD
RCA (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... About July 6, 2016
A mid 70s gem from the Tamba Trio! The record takes their core 60s sound of piano trio grooving and bossa harmony vocals, and gives it a strong 70s twist – with mellow production that flanges the style out a bit more, and arrangements that add in some extra instrumentation from the likes of ...

RCA/Fever Dream, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An obscure chapter in Johnnie Taylor's career – recorded between work at Stax and Columbia, with production and arrangements by Don Davis, who was a seminal force in guiding Johnnie's career.
