Joshua Abrams QuartetUnknown Known ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
A beautiful date from bassist Josh Abrams – a player who's lent his soulful talents to so many great Chicago sessions over the past decade or two – really coming into his own as a leader! Josh has this deeply spiritual approach to his instrument – a style that, back when he first ... read more CD

AirAir (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $21.99
Not the Chicago group of AACM fame, but a completely different Japanese combo from the 70s – a very cool outfit who are equally avant in their approach – and work together in a very spiritual blend of acoustic and electric sounds! The album features one long track, improvised in a very ... read more CD

David AkeBridges ... CD
Posi tone, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A really well-titled little record – as the sound here is quite unique, and often has the musicians creating these little bridges between each other's space! David Ake wrote all the tunes, and put them together with this angular, blocky sort of feel – lots of sound shapes at the core, ... read more CD

Jan AkkermanJan Akkerman ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
A very different album than usual from Jan Akkerman – but in a really nice way! The album's not nearly as guitar-heavy and rock-leaning as some of Jan's other sets from the 70s – and has a bubbling sort of soul-based finish, one that's arranged by Akkerman with some help from Mike ... read more CD

Jan AkkermanTabernakel ... CD
Atco (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
Guitarist Jan Akkerman bridges many worlds here – deftly stepping between spare acoustic guitar modes and some much more dynamic electric ones – but all with a sense of care and vision that really makes the record come together! The set begins with a few themes from John Dowland, ... read more CD

Linsey AlexanderCome Back Baby ... CD
Delmark, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
Sweet Chicago blues from Linsey Alexander – a relative newcomer to the Delmark label, but a musician who's been working the north side clubs for years – and has really honed his sound into a tight electric groove! The style here is tight, but never too slick – with some slight ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Slim Ali & The Hodi Boys70s Soul ... CD
ARC (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Rare soul from 70s Kenya – music that's quite different than the usual Afro Funk of the period, and which has a sound that's more in the mode of American southern soul! Slim Ali since throughout, mostly in English – and it's clear that he's learned plenty from Tennessee soul of the ... read more CD

AmabisTrabalhos Carnivoros ... CD
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
The best we've heard so far from Gui Amabis – a really wonderful little record that we might put right up there with work by Moreno Veloso and his fellow +2 trio members! Gui's got this slow-paced, raspy style of singing that's really compelling – a mode that grabs us strongly, even ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rodrigo Amado with Peter EvansFreedom Principle ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
The title definitely lives up to the sound of the record – a really loose, free session from a quartet that includes strong work from both trumpeter Peter Evans and tenorist Rodrigo Amado – the latter of whom leads the group! All tracks are long, and build with a nice degree of energy ... read more CD

Gyedu-Blay AmbolleySimigwa ... CD
Academy, 1975. New Copy ... $8.99 17.99
A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover! The set's a really unique one – almost rootsier than most of the better-known Ghanian grooves of the time, but funkier too – with a brilliant blend of raw percussion, quirky basslines, and some ... read more CD
(Limited to 1500 copies. CD comes with a 15 x 15 poster of the cover art.)
Also available Simigwa ... LP 14.99

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Franco AmbrosettiLive At The Blue Note (plus bonus track) ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1992. New Copy ... $9.99
A hell of a trumpeter, with a hell of a group – heard here live at the Blue Note in New York, with a very open, freewheeling vibe! Franco Ambrosetti is a player who can sometimes be very much involved with the concept of a project – so much so that we sometimes forget that at the core, ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gene AmmonsLegends Of Acid Jazz – Black Cat!/You Talk That Talk! (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige, 1970/1971. New Copy ... $6.99
A pair of funky killers from tenorist Gene Ammons! Black Cat is one of the great funky albums that Gene Ammons cut for Prestige at the start of the 70s – quite different than his earlier work for the label, and a very different showcase for his tenor genius! The whole lineup here is amazing ... read more CD

Eremite, 1994. New Copy 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Two great days in April – each featuring some very free improvisation from a group that includes Fred Anderson and Kidd Jordan on tenors, William Parker on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums – a quartet with boundless energy, and a really rich sense of each other's place within the sound! ... read more CD

Dorothy AshbyAfro-Harping ... CD
Cadet/Verve, 1968. New Copy ... $7.99 11.98
One of the grooviest records ever – a sublime blend of African percussion, soulful orchestrations, and Dorothy Ashby's amazing electric harp! By the time of this landmark album, Dorothy had been knocking around the jazz world for a number of years, but it wasn't until she hooked up with ... read more CD

Harold AshbyHarold Ashby Quartet (aka Presenting Harold Ashby) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Progressive, 1978. New Copy ... $7.99 15.98
An excellent solo date from tenorist Harold Ashby – a musician who first rose to fame in the Duke Ellington Orchestra of the 60s, but who also had a rich history of previous work in both jazz and blues as well! Ashby's got a wonderfully deep tone – very much in the Lester Young school, ... read more CD

Albert AylerMy Name Is Albert Ayler ... CD
Debut/Muzak (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $16.99
A key early album by Albert Ayler – a mindblowing record even all these many years later, and a key introduction of Ayler's music to the rest of the world! The set begins with a compelling spoken introduction from Albert – really taking the time to introduce himself and his new ... read more CD

Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
A really special record from a really special group – one of two sublime 70s gems from Azteca – a wicked blend of jazz, funk, Latin, and soul – all put together by a young Coke Escovedo! Coke's ostensibly the leader of the group, but there's also a richly collaborative feel going ... read more CD

Band XBest Of Band X ... CD
BBE (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
That's Band X, not Brand X – and they're a damn funky jazz combo from the 70s – one whose work is filled with plenty of sharp changes and wonderfully chromatic moments! Rhythms are at the core of the set – lots of choppy drum parts that are mighty nice, bumped along by sweet ... read more CD

Ray BarrettoEye Of The Beholder ... CD
Atlantic/Fania (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
A really wonderful album from Ray Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love! The album's a crossover gem that has Ray working with Stix Hooper, Joe Sample, and Wilton Felder of The Crusaders – a trio who produced the record, ... read more CD
