Tony Aless with Seldon PowellTony Aless & His Long Island Suite ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by pianist Tony Aless – an unsung hero of the big band years, especially in the Woody Herman group – and a great arranger too! This set's an all-original outing – a suite of tracks dedicated to Long Island, and played by a very hip group ... (Jazz) read more CD

Dizzy Gillespie & Charlie ParkerDiz N Bird In Concert ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1947/1953. New Copy ... $14.99
Not the famous Verve Records pairing of Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker – but instead a more obscure live date from 1947, but one that really lets you hear the genius that happens when both players take the stage! The tunes have this approach that really hits at the most creative side of ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Johnny HartmanAnd I Thought About You ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
An obscure set from Johnny Hartman – cut in the years before his more famous Impulse recordings, and with a mellower, lusher sound that casts his incredible vocals in a warm romantic setting! The orchestrations are by the little-known Rudy Traylor, and have a full feel that's similar to ... (Vocalists) read more CD

Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenny Sings With Jimmy Jones & The Basie-ites ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $14.99
Bev Kenny sounds surprisingly great in this Basie-styled setting – one that has Jimmy Jones handling the keys instead of the Count – with added support from players who include Joe Newman on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor and flute, and Freddie Green on guitar! Like most of Kenny's ... (Vocalists) read more CD

Beverly KennyBeverly Kenny Sings For Johnny Smith ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $14.99
Sweet and mellow vocal work from Bev Kenny – a sophisticated jazz singer who only cut a few albums back in the 50s and 60s! The set's a strong one – and has Bev singing easily with the Johnny Smith group – nothing fancy, but quite nice, and with a warm and intimate feel that has ... (Vocalists) read more CD

Beverly KennyCome Swing With Me ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $14.99
Early work by singer Beverly Kenny – a great 50s jazz vocalist who never got her due, but who managed to make some pretty fine records at the time! This album's one of them, and features backings from Ralph Burns – not as dark and moody as some of his other work of the 50s, and in a ... (Vocalists) read more CD

Bud PowellBud Powell Trio ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1947/1953. New Copy ... $14.99
Seminal sounds from the great Bud Powell – recorded right at an early moment when the pianist was bursting into Birdland fame – working here with a key trio that features Curley Russell on bass and a young Max Roach on drums! Bud seems to have a bit more color in his keys here than in ... (Jazz) read more CD

Seldon PowellSeldon Powell Plays ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $14.99
Great work from one of our favorite reedmen of the 50s! Seldon Powell is one of the all-time tenor greats, but on most of the recordings he made, he's always buried in the mix, or hidden in the credits behind the name of a famous bandleader. However, on this album, one of the few made under his ... (Jazz) read more CD

Seldon Powell Featuring Jimmy ClevelandSeldon Powell Sextet ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $14.99
An excellent sextet session by the great Seldon Powell – one of the late 20th century's best reed talents, but a player who's so often lost in larger bands – which is why it's especially nice to hear him grooving in a small combo set like this! The sound is incredibly soulful, at a ... (Jazz) read more CD

Gene Quill3 Bones & A Quill ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the few albums ever recorded as a leader by alto saxophonist Gene Quill – and a "with trombones" session, as you might guess from the title! Quill's tone is really wonderful overall – crisp, yet soulful – and with an amazingly fluid feel that reminds us of the ... (Jazz) read more CD

The gentle genius of guitarist Johnny Smith – perfectly captured in this late nite trio session from the 50s!

A Johnny Smith album with a real difference, and that difference is vibes – handled her by a young John Rae, whose tones make a perfect accompaniment to Smith's chromatic style of guitar!

Roost/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
Guitarist Johnny Smith in a sweet, laidback trio setting – just the kind of mode that's perfect for his gentle sense of color and tone – a style he virtually invented for jazz guitar in the 50s!

✨✧ Sonny Stitt37 Minutes & 48 Seconds ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title might sound a bit clinical, but the music within is anything but – and instead is that sort of special, magical work that always makes Sonny Stitt a real cut above most of his contemporaries! The notes try to link Stitt to Charlie Parker – but apart from a postwar sense of ... (Jazz) read more CD

Roost/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
A little bit of Stitt is always a great thing – especially when Sonny's playing this well! The album's a killer from Stitt's Roost years – a time when the player was really stepping ahead of the pack – moving past anyone's easy categorizations of his playing – and into ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Sonny StittSaxophones Of Sonny Stitt ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $14.99
Magical Stitt work on Roost – an album of marked understatement, from the simple title, standard cover, and lack of session details on the back – all of which might make you think "oh yeah, heard this one before." But one drop of the needle opens the album up immediately ... (Jazz) read more CD

Roost/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime work from Stitt! The record has a subtle genius that's impossible to describe with words – as Stitt's tone and economy on the album's solos are the pure stuff that you only find after panning through an endless stream of post-bop LPs by players of his generation. The album's ... (Jazz) read more CD
