Frederiksberg, 1973. (reissue)
LP ... About October 25, 2019
A hip Swedish jazz set from the early 70s – a set of warmly soulful numbers from the quintet of trombonist Bertil Strandberg – a player with some strong modal sensibilities! The group here features tenor, piano, bass, and drums – in addition to Bertil's trombone – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1962. (reissue)
LP ... On October 25, 2019
A rare one from Grant Green – recorded in 1962, but not issued until this first pressing of the material, in 1985. The set's one of Green's early classics recorded with pianist Sonny Clark – a deeply soulful player who really had the right feel for Green's more lyrical soul jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1958. (reissue)
LP ... On October 25, 2019
A great session that was recorded by under-exposed tenor genius Tina Brooks, but which wasn't actually released until a Japanese issue of the material in the early 80s. The set's a crackling quintet hardbop session – with Lee Morgan on trumpet, Sonny Clark on piano, and Art Blakey on drums. ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA (Japan), 1975.
CD ... About October 30, 2019
The title's compelling – and kind of makes you think that this might be one of the pair's more avant-leaning albums – but the overall groove is heavy big band swing, in the manner that Tabackin and Akiyoshi did best together. The record features 6 longish tracks, all with a strong ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About October 30, 2019
There's a rich array of great solo work on this album by the Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin big band – performances by Gary Foster, Bill Reichenbach, Tom Peterson, Emil Richards, Steven Huffstetter, and Tabackin and Akiyoshi themselves. The album's a set of original tracks by Toshiko, and ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1974.
CD ... About October 30, 2019
An early masterpiece from the team of Toshiko Akiyoshi and Lew Tabackin – big band tracks written and arranged by Toshiko, and played to perfection by a group that includes Bobby Shew, Don Rader, Mike Price, Dick Spencer, and the great Gary Foster. Titles include "Since Perry", ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About October 30, 2019
A great performance from the Akioshi/Tabackin Big Band's performance at Newport in 1977! The sound here is totally great – hard, focused, and flowing with a magical energy that made this group one of the few large jazz bands to flourish strongly in the 70s. There's almost a Clarke Boland ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1974.
CD ... About October 30, 2019
Brilliantly bold work from pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi – an artist who's really coming into her own for the 70s – stepping out in a big band format that would win her a wide new audience on both sides of the Pacific! The album's one of the first to feature the ensemble co-led with husband ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About October 30, 2019
A classic set of modern big band tracks from the group led by pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi and reedman Lew Tabackin – long tracks, all written by Toshiko, and played by the group with a style that's at once dark, lyrical, and swinging. Soloists include Dick Spencer, Gary Foster, and Bill Perkins ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1981.
CD ... About October 30, 2019
One of the lesser-known albums in the great run of big band records cut by Toshiko Akiyoshi and husband Lew Tabackin – an edgey batch of tunes recorded in LA, with players that include Buddy Childers, Bill Byrne, Bob Shepherd, and the great Gary Foster. Tracks are longish, and titles include ... CD
Baystate/RCA (Japan), 1984.
CD ... About October 30, 2019
A hokey title and cover, but a great little record – a lesser-known gem from the Toshiko Akioshi big band, recorded in the mid 80s for Japanese release! Toshiko's still working strongly with reedman Lew Tabackin here – and as always, the sound of the reeds really make the record – ... CD

Mary/Folkways, 1974.
CD ... About November 1, 2019

Red Camp

New Clavichord
Cook, 1957.

Nimbus/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1981. (reissue)
LP ... About November 15, 2019
A surprisingly strong trio session from Horace Tapscott – recorded in Santa Barbara in 1981, with a trio that features Sonship on percussion and the great Roberto Miranda on bass! Miranda's tone is round and warm, and brings out some of the most soulful sides of Tapscott's playing – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nimbus/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1981. (reissue)
LP ... About November 15, 2019
A dream of a record from the LA spiritual underground of the 70s – and one of the only records we've ever seen from reedman Gary Bias! The date's got a soulful depth that makes it one of the most compelling albums on the legendary Nimbus label – a rhythmic pulse that's often modal, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nimbus/Pure Pleasure (UK), Early 80s. (reissue)
LP ... About November 15, 2019
One of our favorite albums ever on the legendary Nimbus label – and the only set we've ever seen from pianist Linda Hill as a leader! The set's got the same open-ended, spiritually-expressive sound as Adele Sebastian's record for the label – and Sebastian's also a key part of the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

LP ... On November 15, 2019
A totally unique record from drummer Makaya McCraven – and a great one too! The set's built around improvised performances recorded over the period of a year – with some of Chicago's best underground jazz talents, including Matt Ulery on bass, Marquis Hill on trumpet, Jeff Parker on ...

Azar Lawrence

Summer Solstice
Prestige/Craft, 1975. (reissue)
LP ... On November 15, 2019
A beautiful album of spiritual soul and Brazilian influenced jazz from Azar Lawrence – and a pretty rare one we're thrilled to have! Lawrence is a stellar sax player with a sound that's a bit like Gary Bartz, which means that he fits in perfectly with the Fantasy-era Prestige Records sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1961. (reissue)
LP ... On November 15, 2019
One of the few live recordings ever done by Horace Silver during his Blue Note years – a real surprise, considering what a crowd pleaser he was at the time! The set catches Horace working with that great quintet that graced most of his best early Blue Notes – with Blue Mitchell on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1970. (reissue)
LP ... On November 15, 2019
A really fantastic album from guitarist Grant Green – a set that's every bit as great as his other Blue Note funk albums from the time – but in a very different way! First off, the group has vibes – played by the more obscure Willie Bivens, sometimes with this hard chromatic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1960. (reissue)
LP ... On November 15, 2019
A crackling live set from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers! The recording is one of a few that Blakey made at Birdland – and it may well be the best, as it features his killer 1960 lineup with Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, and Bobby Timmons all in the group. Tracks are longer than the group's ... LP, Vinyl record album

High Flying
Columbia (Japan), 1976. (reissue)
LP ... About November 15, 2019
Loads of great keyboards here from Hiromasa Suzuki – working in a mode that's somewhere between earlier funky jazz, and the tighter Japanese fusion of the late 70s! The style here is never too smooth, yet Suzuki really manages to blend some great elements together – his own keys, lots ... LP, Vinyl record album

Takeo Moriyama

Smile
Columbia (Japan), 1981. (reissue)
LP ... About November 15, 2019
An album with a sweet title, but a very hard groove – a stone stormer from Japanese drummer Takeo Moriyama – put together with these soaring reed lines that almost make the whole thing feel like an early 70s album from Elvin Jones! There's a very spiritual feel to the music at times ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hiroshi Suzuki

Cat
Sony (Japan), 1975. (reissue)
LP ... About November 15, 2019
A great bit of electric jazz from the Japanese scene of the 70s – an album that easily rivals the best CTI work in the US at the time! Trombonist Hiroshi Suzuki heads up a quintet here – one that's heavy on electric piano and keyboards, played in a stretched-out sort of groove that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Little Tree
Studio Mule (Germany), 1980.
LP ... About November 22, 2019
One of the few rare albums cut by Japanese guitarist Ryo Kawasaki and his groundbreaking Golden Dragon group during the early 80s. The record features a swirling mix of guitar jams, soulful fusion, and mellow instrumentals. Azar Lawrence joins in on a few tracks, and Nana Vasconcelos plays some ... LP, Vinyl record album
