✨✧ Roy AyersWest Coast Vibes ... CD
United Artists/Mighty Quinn, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A holy grail of jazz – Roy Ayers' first album as a leader, and a near-lost session that's simply sublime! The record was cut at the same time that Roy was working in LA with pianist Jack Wilson – and it's got an approach that's a bit similar to some of the Wilson/Ayers sessions for ...

Benny CarterAspects (aka Jazz Calendar) ... CD
United Artists/Capitol, 1958. Used ... $9.99
A real corker from Benny Carter's revival period at the end of the 50s – a large group session recorded with a very strong horn section, arranged and produced by Benny himself! The album's got a "calendar" gimmick – in that each of the 12 songs feature a month in the name ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ DaytonDayton ... CD
United Artists/EMI (UK), 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first album by this excellent 80s groove ensemble – and a key part of the Ohio funk scene of the end of the 70ss! Forget the more famous funk acts you may know from Ohio, because Dayton's Dayton (can we say that?) were one of the sweetest, smoothest, tightest funk acts to come out of the ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Duke Ellington/Charles Mingus/Max RoachMoney Jungle ... CD
United Artists, 1962. Used ... $3.99
Rarely are such "meeting of the minds" sessions worth any fuss at all – but in this case, the masterful talents of the players turn what should be a snoozy "common denominator" session into a modernist classic that still crackles with excitement after all these years! The ... (Jazz) read more CD

Edmond HallPetite Fleur ... CD
United Artists/Mighty Quinn, 1959. Used ... $2.99
A compelling comeback set for clarinetist Edmond Hall – cut in 1959 when Chris Barber was enjoying a hit with a remake of Sidney Bechet's "Petite Fleur", which provided for a nice opportunity to get Hall back in the studio for a date under the same name! The record's got a lot more ... (Jazz) read more CD

Lena HorneSoul ... CD
EMI/United Artists, 1966. Used ... $1.99
Groovy Lena Horne from the 60s – an album that's a heck of a lot hipper and more swinging than most of her sets from a decade before! That unmistakable Horne style of singing is still very much in place here – but the backings are often tightly punctuated, with a gently soulful groove ... (Vocalists) read more CD

✨✧ Thad JonesMotor City Scene ... CD
United Artists/EMI (Japan), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare treasure from Thad Jones – a unique one-off session for United Artists, cut right around the same time as his classic 50s dates for Blue Note! The format is very laidback and open-ended – not really a blowing session, but kind of a relaxed studio outing – one that has ... (Jazz) read more CD

King PleasureMoody's Mood For Love ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
The rarest of three albums that King Pleasure ever recorded – and pretty darn hard to find, too. The set was recorded after King's earlier sides for the Prestige and HiFi jazz labels, but it's in a very similar style, with some wonderful vocalese-ing done in Pleasure's landmark style. He's ...

✨✧ Irene KralBand & I ... CD
United Artists/Capitol, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sparkling work from singer Irene Kral – and possibly the best album she ever cut! The backings here are by the Herb Pomeroy group – a slightly modern ensemble that still knows how to swing with a good dose of Boston soul – and the overall feel of the album's a lot more forceful ...

Also available Band & I ... CD 8.99

Garnet MimmsCry Baby – The Best Of Garnet Mimms ... CD
United Artists, Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
Some of the best soul to come out of the early 60s – and also some of the least known! Although Garnet's big hit "Cry Baby" does get its dues from time to time, just about every side he cut was a winner, and they all sparkled with his unusual mix of deep soul vocals and tight ...

✨✧ Paul QuinichetteLike Basie (aka Like Who) ... CD
United Artists/Mighty Quinn, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A long-overdue reissue of a great album from saxophonist Paul Quinichette – originally released with the title Like Who? The "who" in that title is Basie – and this was one of many late 50s outings cut by Basie sidemen, in an attempt to recapture the energy of his hit sound, ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Jerome RichardsonGoing To The Movies ... CD
United Artists (Japan), 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful stuff – a rare one from the early 60s that has master reedman Jerome Richardson running through hip versions of hip tracks from hip (and not-so-hip) movies! Includes nice long versions of "Delilah" and "No Problem" (from Les Liasons Dangereuses), plus "Never ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Phil WoodsJazz Alive – A Night At The Half Note ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note (UK), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Alive, and plenty lively – one of our favorite albums ever to feature the team of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims – and one that has them really stretching out a lot more than usual! The album's got a format that's quite different than the tightly-reigned sound of Sims and Cohn on other dates ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Ike TurnerBlues Roots/Bad Dreams ... CD
United Artists/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two sides of early 70s solo Ike Turner – raw, rootsy bluesy soul on the appropriately titled Blues Roots – and stranger, psych soul sounds on Bad Dreams – together in a single set! The Blues Roots album's not lying with the title – as it's a rootsy album of electric blues ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ WarYoungblood – Original Soundtrack ... CD
United Artists/Avenue, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
War did the music for this funky soundtrack to an early Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs film, and although most of the stuff on here is just typical War stuff, there's one track called "Flying Machine" that's a long funky chase scene-type track that's worth the price of the album alone!

Bobby WomackLookin' For A Love Again ... CD
United Artists (Japan), 1974. Used ... $13.99
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Bobby Womack/JJ JohnsonAcross 110th Street ... CD
United Artists/Charly (UK), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best blacksploitation soundtracks of the early 70's – not only for the great title cut by Bobby Womack, "Across 110th Street", but for the excellent hard-hitting instrumentals by J.J. Johnson, which are perfectly in the groove of the blacksploitation generation! Lots of ... (Soul) read more CD

Expanded version of this great soundtrack – with some extra bits and dialogue dropped in, to make the soundtrack even better! Across 110th Street is one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks of the early 70's – not only for the great title cut by Bobby Womack, "Across 110th ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Young Men From MemphisDown Home Reunion (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
EMI/United Artists (Japan), 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
It's a little-known fact that Memphis had a huge influence on the sound of late 50s/early 60s soul jazz – probably because most of the city's best players had to leave and go either to Chicago or New York to make their name. This set's a great reminder of that fact, as it brings together an ... (Jazz) read more CD
