Saturn/Superior Viaduct, 1964. New Copy (reissue)
Landmark work from Sun Ra – a rare 1964 performance that features some very early work from Pharoah Sanders, a good deal of which is appearing here for the first time ever! The material was recorded at Judson Hall – and marks a great large venue performance by the Arkestra on the New ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto

Sweet For K
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2024. New Copy
An album with a really beautiful sound – not just from the core work of the piano trio, but also from the guy who recorded the whole thing too – the legendary engineer for the Three Blind Mice label in Japan, Yoshihiko Kaminari! It's not often that the engineer gets billed on the back ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tenors In Chaos

Chaos
Atak (Japan), 2024. New Copy
A very cool group, and one with a sound that's a lot less chaotic than its name – as the three tenors in the lead have a really wonderful way of coming together! The lineup features tenor work from Yu Kuga, Tomoaki Baba, and Akihiro Nishiguchi – the last of whom also plays soprano sax ... CD

Atak (Takuya Kuroda)

Zazu
Atak (Japan), 2024. New Copy
A very cool large ensemble – one led by trumpeter Takuya Kuroda, and with a sound that's very different than his own work as a leader – as the groove here is a wonderful blend of inspirations from older Afro Funk, inflected with more of a sense of contemporary groove – all served ... CD

Toshiyuki Honda & Soichi Noriki

Hon Nori
Pit Inn (Japan), 2024. New Copy
A beautiful set of duets from these two mature players in Japanese jazz – recorded with a wonderful sense of room that seems to really enhance the quality of both instruments in the lineup! Soichi Noriki plays piano, and Toshiyuki Honda plays alto and soprano – the latter using the ... CD

Lonnie Smith

Funk Reaction
LRC/Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A sweet 70s groover from the great Lonnie Smith – a soulful little session that has the keyboardist really stretching out in some great ways! At the time, Smith fares a lot better than some of his late 60s jazz organ contemporaries – as he's got a great lean style, perfect for the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gordon Beck with Joy Marshall

When Sunny Gets Blue – Spring 1968 Sessions
Turtle (UK), 1968. New Copy
CD...$3.99 14.99
Maybe one of the most soulful records ever cut by British pianist Gordon Beck – even if it appears here for the first time ever! The set's a killer – and has Beck working with vocalist Joy Marshall – a hip female singer who's right up there with the best 60s material by Carmen ... CD

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto

Blues For K Vol 2
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2022. New Copy
Pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto gave us some sublime records in the 70s on the Three Blind Mice label from Japan – and he really continues the spirit of those records here, on a set of tracks that demonstrate that, if anything, his sense of space and timing have gotten even more amazing as the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto

Blues For K Vol 1
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2022. New Copy
Pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto gave us some sublime records in the 70s on the Three Blind Mice label from Japan – and he really continues the spirit of those records here, on a set of tracks that demonstrate that, if anything, his sense of space and timing have gotten even more amazing as the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Doug Carn

Infant Eyes
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy
An undisputed 70s soul jazz classic – and arguably the best album that Doug Carn ever cut for the Black Jazz label! The set is a masterpiece of spiritual jazz – with Carn on keyboards setting up the groove, and wife Jean singing some incredible vocals – very different than her ... CD
Turtle (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD
A treasure trove of unreleased material from one of the coolest pianists on the UK jazz scene in the 60s and 70s – an artist who not only helped the world of British jazz attain the level of sophistication of the US scene, but also opened the door to a lot of modern elements as his music ... CD
El (UK), Late 30s/1940s/1950s. New Copy 3 CDs
A fantastic testament to the genius of guitarist Django Reinhardt – and one that focuses on a special side of his talents – the many songs that he wrote during his too-short career, which went onto have a huge impact on the changing sound of the French scene in the 40s and 50s! The ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3 CDs
Don't take the "keep it light" title too seriously – as the work here is pretty darn heavy overall – a massive look at the way the British jazz scene was rapidly changing with the approach of the 60s – and finally starting to get a voice of its own! The big package ... CD
Deram/Turbo (UK), 1969. New Copy 3 CDs
The brilliant third album from Mike Westbrook – a sharp-edged, two volume set with a scathing anti-war theme! The work is Westbrook's first total-concept album, and it's still one of his best – written with an edge that's free from some of the more whimsical touches that showed up in ... CD
Turtle (UK), 1963. New Copy 2CD
CD...$9.99 24.99
The group's name is a bit hokey, but they've got an excellent lineup that includes a few musicians who'd go on to greater fame in the British jazz scene of the late 60s – working here in a nicely balanced mode of modern styles first forged in the 50s! There's a mix of west coast cool and ... CD
Nederlands Jazz Archief (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A long-lost performance by Sun Ra and the Arkestra – recorded in Amsterdam at the start of the 70s, when the group were brought in by avant saxophonist Hans Dulfer for a special performance! This album marks the first-ever issue of the material, from rediscovered tapes that finally present ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note (Japan), 1962. New Copy
One of the few albums ever made as a leader by tenorist Don Wilkerson – a hell of a talent who was usually working in the background of the Ray Charles band, but got this chance to step out as a leader for Blue Note – in a session that's also one of the rarest on the label! Brother Don ... CD

Volker Kriegel

Inside – Missing Link
MPS (Germany), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A double-length set – and one that's got plenty of space for wide-ranging power from guitarist Volker Kriegel! The set builds beautifully off the energy that Volker had in the Dave Pike Set – with a similar blend of funk and psychedelic influences, all filtered down beautifully in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/ARC (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Fantastic stuff, and a record that was virtually the blueprint for spiritual soul jazz in the 70s! Although Max Roach first rose to fame during the bop years, by the time of this set he'd really stretched out a lot – moving past initial righteous projects in the Civil Rights era, to even ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prime Element (Carlos Franzetti)

Alborada
Trova/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy
CD...$7.99 18.99
An early gem from keyboardist Carlos Franzetti – a mid 70s session done with a really ambitious sound, and easily one of Franzetti's most righteous recordings ever! At the time of the set, Carlos was fresh on the New York scene from years in his native Argentina – but he's working here ... CD
Night Dreamer (UK), 2023. New Copy 2LP
A really bold step forward for Chicago tenor genius Isaiah Collier – and maybe the first record to showcase his emergence as a multi-instrumentalist instead of just a spiritual jazz musician! There's clearly a lot of improvisation going on here – not just from the larger ensemble, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hal Singer

Soweto To Harlem
As Shams/Afrodelic (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
One of a handful of very righteous albums that American reedman Hal Singer made overseas – very different material than the more R&B-based tenor material that started out his career! Here, Hal's got this easygoing approach to soul jazz – stretching out on these really long tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio

Misty (SACD DSD)
Three Blind Mice/Sony (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Not "Misty" in an Errol Garner sense – although Tsuyoshi Yamamoto serves up his own version of the tune here – and instead a hip set from the Three Blind Mice scene of the 70s, with a very open, freewheeling approach to piano trio work! Yamamoto's a bit straighter than some ... CD

Isaiah Collier & The Chosen Few

Almighty
Division 81, 2024. New Copy
An album that really lives up to its title – as the record sets out to prove to the world that Isaiah Collier is one of the most almighty talents on the saxophone in recent years! The album has a spiritual majesty that tops even the previous album with the Chosen Few group – as in ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy
One of our favorite Lee Morgan albums, and one of his least known – a set recorded in the crucial last five years of his life, and a sparkling mix of hard bop, soul jazz, and slight bits of modernism – that magical mix that Lee was hitting as he reached farther and farther with his ... CD
Gearbox (UK), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
One of the most striking, most unusual settings for the voice of Leon Thomas we've ever heard – a rare 1970 performance with the Brit group Nucleus – done right at the same time that Thomas was recording his classics with Pharoah Sanders! The initial approach is similar, and the songs ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest albums ever from Blue Note tenor giant Hank Mobley – a set that really explodes in all the new directions Hank was taking in the 60s! Mobley in the 50s was already the stuff of legend – a tremendous soloist on tenor, and every bit his own man – firmly focused ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Cherry

Cherry Jam
Gearbox, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
Never-issued work from Don Cherry – and a really key piece of the puzzle in the career of this legendary trumpeter! The recordings were done for Swedish Radio, with great fidelity – more than just live tracks captured in a club, and instead some really thoughtful material that marks an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Enzo Randisi

Enzo Randisi
PDR/SeriE.WOC (Italy), Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Wicked work on vibes from this fantastic Italian musician – a player who really seems to lean into the more subtle, sensitive qualities of his instrument – to come up with this overlooked set of genius that's filled with great sounds throughout! Enzo's vibes are blended beautifully ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Frisell

Orchestras
Blue Note, 2024. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A stunning setting for the guitar of Bill Frisell – and an album that's maybe even more beautiful than we might have expected! The record features Bill's core trio – with Rudy Royston on drums and Thomas Morgan on bass – but the real genius of the set may well come from the great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Uniteledis/LMLR (France), 1975. New Copy 2LP
One of the last truly outside albums recorded by Archie Shepp in the 70s – a French performance that's very similar to the open-ended, freely-blown recordings he did for the BYG/Actuel label a few years before! The record captures Shepp in territory that's different than some of the more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1968. New Copy
Amazing later work from Booker Ervin – far more modern and far-reaching than you'd guess from the "Texas" title in the set! Although Ervin first came onto the scene as a strong-voiced tenorist from a Texas tradition, through the course of the 60s he'd really expanded his musical ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside/Craft, 1961. New Copy
Beautiful early work from Cannonball Adderley – and a record that's quite different than most of his better known sets from the time! The album's more spare and stripped-down than usual – with Cannon's alto in a quartet alongside Bill Evans on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Connie Kay ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaiah Collier & The Chosen Few

Almighty (colored vinyl pressing)
Division 81 (Italy), 2024. New Copy 2LP
An album that really lives up to its title – as the record sets out to prove to the world that Isaiah Collier is one of the most almighty talents on the saxophone in recent years! The album has a spiritual majesty that tops even the previous album with the Chosen Few group – as in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Enja/BBE (UK), 1982. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A brilliant early album from pianist Aki Takase – already at the top of her game with an amazing command of the keyboard – a reach and sense of imagination that almost opens into the freewheeling territory of Cecil Taylor, but one that's also got a lot of room for gentler, more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Majoie Hajary

La Passion Selon Judas
CBS/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1970. New Copy (reissue)
An incredible bit of global jazz from the French scene at the start of the 70s – one of those really unique records that's beyond easy definition, and which really represents all the cool criss-crossings in styles that were taking place on the Parisian scene at the time! Majole Hajary was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fumio Itabashi

Watarase – River
P-Vine (Japan), 2010s. New Copy
A wonderful collection of later work from this legendary Japanese pianist – a set that's named after his famous Watarase album from years back, but which includes some unusual live recordings and material that we haven't seen elsewhere! Some of the tracks here really break the standard piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Abdul Wadud

By Myself
Bisharra/Gotta Groove, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
A haunting set of solo tracks by cellist Abdul Wadud – an important, and oft-overlooked, figure in the 70s loft jazz scene! Wadud plays cello throughout, but in a style that's extremely inventive – and much more in the vein of bass improvisation by players in a tradition that includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cadet/Verve, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing album by the great guitarist Eddie Fisher – and completely unlike his later funk records! Eddie plays stripped down jazz with a small combo that includes organ by Robert Selby, bass by Paul Jackson, and some rhythm guitar by Phil Westmoreland – and the twin-guitar approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yoni Mayraz

Dybbuk Tse
Astigmatic (Poland), 2023. New Copy
Yoni Mayraz is a pianist, but one who plays keyboards in modes that are much more than conventional jazz – and which instead really reflect the changes in the London scene where he's made his home in recent years! The record bristles with some of the best sort of creative inspirations we'd ... LP, Vinyl record album
Astigmatic (Poland), 2022. New Copy Gatefold
A really great record with a vibe that's all its own – a stunning blend of spiritual jazz, North Indian music, and some slight contemporary touches – all with a sense of deeper energy that really opens up as the album moves on! There's plenty of great keyboards on the record – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Emmeluth's Amoeba

Nonsense
Moserobie (Sweden), 2024. New Copy
Emmeluth is alto saxophonist Signe Emmeluth – a player with a very unusual ear for timing and rhythms, as you'll hear in this completely unique set! The record has a vibe that's very hard to describe in words – maybe partly some of the experimentation of the 80s New York downtown scene ... LP, Vinyl record album

Calvin Keys

Simply Calvin
Life Force Jazz, 2022. New Copy
A set of tracks recorded in the early 90s, unreleased until many years later – and an album that shows a beautifully sensitive side of the music of guitarist Calvin Keys! The title is sometimes very apt – as Calvin is often out front in the lead, crafting these warm lines built from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Masaru Imada

Piko
Full House/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy
A sublime solo set from pianist Masaru Imada – one that really opens up with the kind of warm, spacious approach to jazz that he showcased on his famous albums for the Three Blind Mice label! Imada's got a completely captivating sound here – really bringing us in with a personal ... CD

Ra Washington & Ja Nada

In Search For Our Father's Gardens
Astral Spirits, 2024. New Copy 2LP
You might know pianist Ra Washington from his work in Mourning A BLKstar or Vernacular, and he's even more powerful and righteous here in a collaboration with bassist Jah Nada – as the pair head up a collective that delivers music that's full of music and message throughout! There's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzaggression (Finland), 1973. New Copy
A wonderfully raw keyboard trio session from the Norwegian scene of the early 70s – served up by a group led by Christian Reim, who you may know from more modern jazz-styled material, but who's in a killer funky group here! Reim plays Fender Rhodes and organ next to the guitar of Rickard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Albert Ayler

New Grass
Impulse/Third Man, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
One of the last albums that Albert Ayler ever recorded before his strange and mysterious early death – and one of his most memorable records as well! The record shows Ayler at the crossroads, filled with emotion and meaning, struggling to convey his message to a lager audience. At times, he ... LP, Vinyl record album
P-Vine (Japan), 2010s. New Copy
A wonderful collection of later work from this legendary Japanese pianist – a set that's named after his famous Watarase album from years back, but which includes some unusual live recordings and material that we haven't seen elsewhere! Some of the tracks here really break the standard piano ... CD
Nodlew/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy
One of the most beautiful records to come out of the early 70s – a tremendous indie effort from a young Weldon Irvine! Irvine put this album together as sort of a musical "time capsule" of his generation – an effort to capture the era's thoughts, feelings, and emotions ... CD

Josh Johnson

Unusual Object
Northern Spy, 2024. New Copy
A solo record, but one that's got the sound of more things at once than you might expect – as saxophonist Josh Johnson has this great way of processing the sound from his horns, then layering them with samples and other elements too – but all in a way that's never gimmicky, and really ... LP, Vinyl record album
