✨✧ Gene AmmonsJust Jug ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
One of those shady little sessions that Gene Ammons cut for Argo when he wasn't supposed to be recording for anyone but Prestige – and a great album that never got full circulation because of contract difficulties. The group on the album features organist Eddie Buster, who'd backed Jug or ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Grey label Argo pressing, with deep groove. The first two tracks on side two have some crackles, but the rest is OK. Cover is great!)

Gene AmmonsUp Tight! ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... $24.99
A great little session by Jug – cut after the late 50s blowing session years, and with a much tighter sound that's very much in the pocket! The record features two groups – one with Walter Bishop, Art Davis, and Art Taylor; the other with Patti Brown, George Duvivier, and Taylor ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing with deep groove and RVG stamp. Vinyl has a short click in one spot, but is great overall. Cover has some light wear in a corner, but is nice too.)

Gene AmmonsWoofin & Tweetin ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
A classic album from Gene Ammons – one that features the tenor legend at his prime, working in two different settings! The first batch has Ammons "battling" Sonny Stitt in a set of stuff that features hard twin tenors in the frontline, with the kind of cutting contests the two of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons & Sonny StittDig Him (aka We'll Be Together Again) ... LP
Argo, 1961. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Nothing fancy – but some great straight-ahead blowing from Stitt and Jug! The album's a quintet session, with John Houston piano, Buster Williams bass, and George Brown drums providing all the rhythm. But the real focus is on the twin-sax frontline – with Sitt taking up the alto on a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chess, Early 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
A nice little album – featuring some of the sides that Gene Ammons cut "off contract" for Chess/Argo during the early 60s, and ones that feature him paired with Sonny Stitt, his longtime partner in legendary tenor battles from the 50s. The two horns aren't really locked in combat ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1963. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A set that's less a "summit" than a great collection of groovy work for Prestige Records in the 60s – tracks that didn't make it onto other full albums of the time, but which feature material by some of the most soulful talents on the label!

David AmramNo More Walls (RCA) ... LP
RCA, 1971. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
2LP set that focuses on the many different styles of arranger/conductor/horn player David Amram. Some of this stuff's kind of snoozy and symphonic, but there's also some very groovy tracks that mix up "Near Eastern" instrumentation and funkier arrangements, and some other cuts that have ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis AmyMustang! ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A fantastic LP of beautiful modal tracks, played by one of the most underrated reed players ever, during the most fruitful time of his career.

Pacific Jazz, 1962. Very Good ... $24.99
An incredible album by one of the best soul jazz reed players to emerge from the LA scene of the 60s!

One of the more fantastic jazz sides on MPS from the 60s!

Brownswood (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Joe Armon Jones sings and plays lots of cool Wurlitzer electric piano on this gem of an album – but the whole thing is maybe even more of a tribute to the warmly collaborative spirit of the contemporary London scene, as it is to the talents of the man himself!

Probably the greatest album ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – and also one of their rarest!
