Four Brothers
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. New Copy
A great recasting of the older four brothers jazz modes – that four horn chorus and solo format first created by Woody Herman with Stan Getz – given a much more modern twist here by a top-shelf lineup of players! The group has the American genius Lucky Thompson on soprano and tenor ... CD

Sonorama (Germany), 1961. New Copy
A cool Swiss combo, very heavy on vibes – and featuring great work from the leader Remo Rau! Rau works here with piano, bass, and drums – but the groove is a lot harder and more swinging than other combos of that nature – such as the MJQ – thanks in part to Rau's very hard, ...

Genie
Capitol (Japan), 1977. New Copy
A funky fusion classic – and quite possibly Bobby Lyle's most perfectly realized album! The set was Bobby's first full US outing, and it's filled with soaring, riffing keyboards that stretch out into territory explored a few years before by Johnny Hammond and Lonnie Liston Smith! The real ... CD

October Wind Vol 1
Ictus, 1976. New Copy
Beautiful trio work from Steve Lacy – very obscure sessions from the mid 70s, done in Milan by percussionist Andre Centazzo – who's also in the trio along with bassist Kent Carter! The format is loose and open, but in a way that's arguably more soulful than some of Lacy's other ... CD

Audiophile/Progressive, 1978. New Copy
A 70s gem from pianist Roland Hanna – a set that's still got all the best lyrical touches of his other music from the decade, but which also has a bit more bite at times too – thanks to strong rhythm work from the team of George Mraz on bass and Ben Riley on drums! Hanna's piano really ... CD

Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1963. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Fantastic – and one of Mingus' greatest albums ever! This one ranks right up with The Clown and Pithecantropus Erectus for sheer raw power and emotion – and Mingus' writing here is incredibly tight, giving soloists like Charlie Mariano, Jaki Byard, Richard Williams, and Jerome ...

Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1963. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A surprisingly enchanting album of piano work from Charles Mingus – one of a few he cut on the instrument, and quite different than his regular work on bass! Unlike the bold, angry role that Mingus would take on as a leader, the approach here is very personal and introspective – long ... LP, Vinyl record album

High Contrast (Japanese pressing)
Verve (Japan), 1970. New Copy
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in ... CD

Les Stances A Sophie
Nessa/Universal Sound (UK), 1970. Near Mint- (reissue)
Probably the greatest album ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – and also one of their rarest! The album was cut for Pathe Marconi in Paris in 1970, and was the soundtrack to a film that was as obscure as the album. The group's never been finer – and plays with a creative tightness ...

Trio/Universal (Japan), 1981. Used
We've never heard from Japanese saxophonist Koichi Matsukaze before, but he's really won us over with this inventive little session – an understated mix of modern moments and lyrical touches, done with some especially nice vibes from Hiroshi Hatsuyama! The group's just a quartet with bass ... CD

Golden Years/Vinyl Lovers, 1984. Near Mint- (reissue)
An excellent live performance from the 80s – recorded during a time when the Arkestra was extremely tight, and really beginning to break big with audiences like the enthusiastic one heard at this festival in Athens! Sun Ra and the group are at the height of their powers here – really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Enigma (10 inch EP)
Blue Note, 1952/1953. Near Mint-
A real enigma from Miles Davis – rare material from the Blue Note vaults, issued here for the first time ever – and done as a totally sweet 10" album! The cover and package are great – and the music is even better – very much in the most sparkling spirit of Davis' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Armageddon
Katalyst/Tizona, 1968. Near Mint- (reissue)
A rare and beautiful treasure from Chicago's Phil Cohran and his legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble – material recorded at the end of the 60s, but only issued here for the first time ever! The sound on the record is amazing – much deeper, and more forceful than anything else we've ... LP, Vinyl record album
