Joy Of Flying
Columbia/Reel Music, 1979. New Copy
A key record in the evolution of Tony Williams as a drummer – and kind of a powerful summation of all the changes he'd made in the 70s – before a return to straighter jazz in the next decade! Williams' drumming here is incredibly fierce at points – almost at a Billy Cobham level ... CD

Live At The Half Note
Hi Hat, Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
The cover's got a photo of Horace Silver in the 50s – but the music here is clearly from sometime in the 60s, and features the legendary pianist really stretching out in live performance at the Half Note! The package features two different concerts recorded for radio at the legendary venue ... CD

8:30 Live
Hi Hat, 1980. New Copy
Weather Report at the start of the 80s – really stretching out here in a live performance from a tour in support of their 8:30 album at the time! The style here is sharper and more hard-edged than that album, though – as the live setting shakes off some of the warmer studio elements, ... CD

Live at the Jazz Workshop
Hi Hat (UK), 1975. New Copy
A rare live set from guitarist Larry Coryell – working here with his Eleventh House group, a combo that features Mike Lawrence on trumpet, Mike Mandel on keyboards, John Lee on bass, and Alphonse Mouzon on drums! The set begins with a beautiful acoustic solo from Larry, then builds into a ... CD

Paradise
Atco, 1975. Very Good
A weird bit of avant funk, recorded by Sonny Sharrock and wife Linda, during the mid 70's. The sound is sort of a funky fusion gone mad, and sounds at times like stuff from Larry Young's Arista albums – especially because Linda's singing has this mad shrieking quality to it, that's similar ...

Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good
An excellent package of this seminal work in the development of the American jazz avant garde, and one of the most "out" records that Kenton (or Capitol) ever released! The album is based around a composition by Robert Graettinger – "This Modern World" – with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz Ltd, Early 50s. Very Good
One of the more obscure releases from this small Chicago trad jazz club – featuring work from Miff Mole on trombone and Doc Evans on trumpet! LP, Vinyl record album

Regal, Early 50s. Very Good
One of the hipper albums from this Chicago trad ensemble – featuring work from Sidney Bechet on soprano sax, Doc Evans and Muggsy Spanier on trumpet, and Don Ewell on piano! LP, Vinyl record album

Awful Natural 1940
RCA (France), 1940. Very Good
Great work from these two important bands – both at their peak in 1940! LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
John White
Mainstream, 1971. Very Good+
A bit funky, a bit bluesy – and one of the only 70s albums we've ever seen from guitarist John White – a player with a feel that's a bit more laidback and loose than some of his contemporaries on the Mainstream label! The style here is somewhere between work by David T Walker and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Touch Of Tony Scott
RCA, 1956. Very Good+
Early work from reedman Tony Scott – recorded in the years when he was much more of a regular on the New York scene – before he started working in trippier styles for the 60s! The album features Scott in a host of different settings – from quartet, to tentet, to orchestra ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Contemporary, 1954. Very Good
Tremendous work from Howard Rumsey's early Lighthouse group – and a great example of why they were such a great act at the time! The "solo spotlight" in the title is extremely apt here – as each of the album's tracks features a standout performance by group members who emerge ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
A&M, 1973. Near Mint-
Sweet funky Q for the 70s – easily one of the coolest albums ever from Quincy Jones! The album's got a very heavy electric vibe – one that's kind of a laidback take on the styles that Jones was forging in some of his 70s soundtrack work – served up with massive work on the ...

Americans In Sweden
Metronome/Teichiku (Japan), Early 50s. Near Mint-
An excellent Japanese compilation of rare Swedish recordings by these three American saxophonists! Stan Getz plays on all of side one and part of side two – with Swedish All Stars who include Bengt Hallberg on piano and Gunner Johnson on bass. Lee Konitz plays in a combo with Lars Gullin on ...

Tony Fruscella/Phil Woods Quintet
Stateside (Japan), 1959/1969. Near Mint-
Rare material from this unique pairing – the excellent and overlooked trumpeter Tony Fruscella and alto genius Phil Woods – heard together here in three very long tracks from 1959, and one shorter performance from 1969! LP, Vinyl record album

At Large
Prestige, 1960s. Used
Some killer soul jazz numbers from tenor giant Willis Jackson – including some tasty tracks from hard to find 60s LPs like Shuckin, Swivel Hips, Neapolitan Nights, In My Solitude, and Really Groovin. There's a total of 15 tracks in all – and most of the numbers have Willis playing in a ... CD
