Beverly KennyBeverly Kenny Sings For Johnny Smith ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... About June 29, 2016
Sweet and mellow vocal work from Bev Kenny – a sophisticated jazz singer who sadly 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 ... (Vocalists) read more CD

Beverly KennyCome Swing With Me ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... About July 27, 2016
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), 1947/1958. New Copy ... About July 27, 2016
Early trio recordings by Bud – cut with a group that features Curley Russell on bass and Max Roach on drums. The album's from later in the 50s – and sports some notes that describe the recordings as having a large influence on modern jazz at the time, and a front cover that features a ...

Seldon Powell Featuring Jimmy ClevelandSeldon Powell Sextet ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... About June 29, 2016
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

Johnny SmithEasy Listening ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy ... About July 27, 2016
The gentle genius of guitarist Johnny Smith – perfectly captured in this late nite trio session from the 50s! There's a lot more jazz here than you might guess from the "easy listening" title – and Johnny's working with drummer Charlie Mastropaolo and bassist George Roumanis, ... (Jazz) read more CD

Sonny Stitt37 Minutes & 48 Seconds ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... About July 27, 2016
Nice one! This is the kind of material that's made Sonny Stitt a favorite for rare jazz vinyl hounds, and it's also the kind of session that's previously been sorely missed in most reissue campaigns of his work. The set's nothing fancy – but its warm soulful grooves show Stitt at his best, ... (Jazz) read more CD

Sonny StittSaxophones Of Sonny Stitt ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... About July 27, 2016
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

Sonny StittSonny Stitt Plays ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy ... About June 29, 2016
One of Sonny Stitt's amazing albums for Roost – a record with a beautifully mature conception of bop soloing, and a totally confident tone throughout! There's an understated brilliance here that's nearly impossible to describe in words – a sense of placement, timing, and phrasing that's ... (Jazz) read more CD

Sonny StittSonny Stitt Plays Arrangements From the Pen Of Quincy Jones (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... About June 29, 2016
Sonny Stitt plus the early genius of Quincy Jones – a really great combination that makes for a standout session on Roost! As you might guess with Quincy handling the arrangements, the gorup here is bigger than usual for Stitt – especially given that the bulk of his Roost sessions were ... (Jazz) read more CD

Sonny StittSonny Stitt With The New Yorkers ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... About June 29, 2016
Beautiful Roost material from Sonny Stitt – solid, mature, and extremely well-placed lines on the alto sax – all caught at a level that's higher than most of his contemporaries were dising out at the time! The boppier side of Stitt's roots is nicely suppressed here – and in its ... (Jazz) read more CD
