LP...$27.99 29.99 ... About April 15, 2024
Beautiful sounds from trumpeter Matthew Halsall – just an EP, but one that features material from the same recordings that gave us his Ever Changing View album – two long tracks that almost act like a ".5" to that original record!

Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. 2CD
CD...$12.99 19.99 ... About June 7, 2024
Forget the cheapo look of the cover, as the set's a classic batch of gems from the Trojan Records catalog – 2CDs worth of material, with 55 titles that go way past the obvious hits – served up in a great mix of rocksteady and early reggae modes, and filled with the kind of tunes that ...

Church of Anthrax
Columbia/Esoteric (UK), 1970.
CD...$15.99 19.99 ... About June 7, 2024
One of those landmark meetings of mighty talents that sounds even better on record than it does on paper – as the set somehow finds this really special space that's completely between all the best early 70s modes of both Terry Riley and John Cale!

A pair of later Maze albums – back to back in a single set, and with bonus tracks too! First up is Silky Soul – a late 80s album, but one that has the smooth soul genius very much at the top of his game! Frankie's work from the 70s inspired countless imitators in the next decade ... CD (Soul CD)
TK/Big Break (UK), 1972.
CD...$14.99 18.99 ... About June 7, 2024
A landmark album from Timmy Thomas – one that mixes together electronics and soul in this wonderfully unique mellow groove – a style that's hardly ever been matched again, and which may well put this album at the same level as Shuggie Otis' classic Inspiration Information set!

A masterpiece of east coast vocal group soul – one of the best independent harmony albums of the early 70s!

Gearbox (UK), 2020.

LP...$35.99 44.99 ... About April 15, 2024
A really amazing little record – one that's partly in the "jazz meets Indian" mode of Joe Harriott's experiments of the 60s – but a performance that also brings in a lot more from spiritual jazz, even though most of the instrumentation is more traditional!

The young Roland Kirk at the height of his powers – recording here on the UK scene, long before he added the Rahsaan to his name – and heading up a very cool combo with the legendary Stan Tracey on piano!

Not Dead Yet, 1980. (reissue)
LP...$20.99 28.99 ... About April 15, 2024
A set recorded in both Jamaica and Trinidad, and one that shows a great combination of both locations – with straighter reggae cuts at some points, and some more Caribbean flavored club at others! The music has some of the message that you'd guess from the cover and title, but the overall ... LP, Vinyl record album (Reggae LP)

A warmly crafted album from South African saxophonist McCoy Mrubata – not one that's sleepy, as the lullaby in the title might imply – but just nicely relaxed and mellow, in a way that has the reedman crafting some moody colors on tenor – in a lineup that features lots of great ... CD (Jazz CD)

A live set – one of many fine ones that Jamal recorded for Argo during the early 60s – recorded at his own Alhambra Club in Chicago, with the classic trio that included Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums. Tracks are light and lively – and very Jamal – and ... CD (Jazz CD)
Argo/Universal (Japan), 1961.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About April 17, 2024
Not just a wonderful record for the music, but also for the classic cover image too – a photo of Ahmad Jamal's righteous night club The Alhambra – an Eastern-themed spot on Chicago's Michigan Ave, where Jamal made some incredible music for a few short years! Jamal was one of the few ... CD (Jazz CD)
Argo/Universal (Japan), 1960.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About April 17, 2024
A nicely expanded take on the Ahmad Jamal sound of the early 60s – one that adds in guitar from Ray Crawford and violin from Joe Kennedy to Jamal's usual trio grooving! The main focus here is often still on the core group – which features Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on ... CD (Jazz CD)

Argo/Universal (Japan), 1960.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About April 17, 2024
A sprightly set from the Ahmad Jamal Trio – but also a record that's not as brightly colored as you might guess from the title, thanks to a nice undercurrent of darkness in the mix! Jamal's piano work is often nicely punctuated – perhaps living up to the "happy moods" ... CD (Jazz CD)
Argo/Universal (Japan), 1959.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About April 17, 2024
A compelling title – as the record was recorded at Nola Penthouse Studios in New York, one of the hippest places to lay down tracks at the time – but the cover shows an image of the Playboy building in Chicago, famous from the TV show Playboy's Penthouse, Hugh Hefner's first foray into ... CD (Jazz CD)
Argo (Japan), 1958.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About April 17, 2024
One of Ahmad Jamal's best early albums for Argo – a brilliant set of live recordings, done at the Spotlite Club in Washington DC in 1958 – and with a fluid vibe that's simply incredible – one of the best true statements of Jamal's genius from the early years! The trio is ... CD (Jazz CD)
Argo/Universal (Japan), 1958.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About April 17, 2024
Magical early work from Ahmad Jamal – a scintillating blend of piano, percussion, and bass – with a sound that was incredibly fresh at the time, and which still sounds pretty much so to our ears! The album crackles with imagination and rhythm – really hitting on all burners ... CD (Jazz CD)
Chess/Universal (Japan), 1956.

That's right, count 'em – 88 keys on the piano in all, and Ahmad does a pretty good job of hitting them all in this early album of piano virtuosity! The album's amazing – set the pace for a whole new generation of piano expressiveness, with a cool and earthy approach that also still ... CD (Jazz CD)

Nothing too exotic here, as the album's a soulful romp from Frank Lowe – a set that has a nicely earthy feel overall, with lots of room for Lowe's wonderful sound on the tenor sax! The group here features some especially nice piano from Amina Claudine Myers – who is always a welcome ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Soul Note (Italy), 1984. (reissue)
LP...$25.99 29.99 ... About April 19, 2024
Deeply soulful blowing from tenorist Frank Lowe – working here in a wonderfully hip group that includes Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Grachan Moncur III on trombone, Geri Allen on piano, Charnett Moffett on bass, and Charles Moffett on drums.

LP...$25.99 29.99 ... About April 19, 2024
Seminal work from Billy Harper – one of his few albums to get wider exposure in the 70s, and searing set of righteous power all the way through! By this point in his career, Billy's really got a handle on his sound – and reaches forth here on tenor with a sense of majesty we'd rank ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

A great later moment from the Five Stairsteps – served up by a mature version of the group, who are now all adults at the time of recording – and come together in a great new groove! The album's a modern soul treasure through and through – upbeat and a bit funky at times, but ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

A great bit of jungle exotica from funky sitar player Ananda Shankar – composed as a full piece with an "atmosphere of twilight and the feeling of watching animals at a water hole", but with a sweeping soundtracky feel that makes it more like some lost 70s film gem in the best ...

The cover's a striking one – and it definitely supports the music inside, given that most of these Bo Carter tunes are vintage blues tunes with a decidedly erotic bent! The metaphors are obvious, but they're put together beautifully – without any of the heavy-handed schlock that later ... LP, Vinyl record album (Blues LP)
