Vortex/Nature Sounds, 1970. (reissue)
LP ... On April 20, 2024
Groovily tripped-out work from vibist Dave Pike – and one of the few American albums that matches the experimental sound of his work for MPS! The session's often quite free and open – in a way that not only uses odd instrumental combinations and arrangements, but which also features ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riding Easy, Mid 1970s. (reissue)
LP ... On April 20, 2024
That's Band X, not Brand X – and they're a damn funky jazz combo from the 70s – one whose work is filled with plenty of sharp changes and wonderfully chromatic moments! Rhythms are at the core of the set – lots of choppy drum parts that are mighty nice, bumped along by sweet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1979. (reissue)
LP...$26.99 29.99 ... About March 5, 2024

Cedar Walton

Mobius
RCA/Be With (UK), 1975. (reissue)
LP...$34.99 38.99 ... About April 19, 2024
A real revelation from pianist Cedar Walton – an unusual electric album from the 70s – quite a surprise, given the mostly-acoustic sound of most of Cedar's other records! The album's a killer, though – and has this fresh, full take on funky jazz for the time – not the usual ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vault/Goodtime, Late 1960s.
CD...$13.99 14.99 ... About February 23, 2024
One of 2 rare albums recorded by organist Jimmy Caravan in the 60s – a really great talent on the Hammond, and a player with a really clean, lean, and groovy sound! Jimmy's style here borrows a lot from the Capitol jazz scene of players like Howard Roberts or Henry Cain – an approach ... CD

Contemporary/Craft, 1971. 2LP (reissue)
LP ... About March 1, 2024
A stunning extended set from the great Woody Shaw – a majestic, spiritual album that almost feels more like something that you'd hear on the Strata East label than you might expect from the more straight ahead Contemporary Records imprint! The lineup is as majestic as the music – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio

Misty
Three Blind Mice/Sony (Japan), 1974.
CD ... About February 20, 2024
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

Motohiko Hino Quartet + 1

Ryuhyo – Sailing Ice (with bonus tracks)
Three Blind Mice/Sony (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About February 20, 2024
A record with a really beautiful title – and a sound that definitely lives up to the "Sailing Ice" on the cover! The music is very much in the best post-Coltrane mode – played by a group led by the great Japanese drummer Motohiko Hino, and featuring Mabumi Yamaguchi on tenor ... CD

Nathan Davis

If
Tomorrow International/P-Vine (Japan), 1976.
CD...$18.99 24.99 ... About February 21, 2024
Quite possibly the funkiest album ever recorded by saxophone legend Nathan Davis – a sweet little session with plenty of electric touches! The sound here differs greatly from Davis' 60s work on the European scene – his amazing albums for MPS and Polydor – and the record's awash ... CD

Art Pepper

Smack Up
Contemporary/Craft, 1960. (reissue)
LP...$26.99 28.99 ... On February 23, 2024
A nice straight batch of tracks from Pepper – and a record that we like more than some of the more "classic" ones on Contemporary! The album's got quite a strange title – Smack Up, a very strange choice, given Pepper's well-known experience as a junkie – and features ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1964. (reissue)
LP...$36.99 38.99 ... On February 23, 2024
Excellent 60s work by Stan Getz – tunes recorded in 1964, but not issued at the time, thanks to a flurry of bossa nova craziness! The pairing of Getz and Bill Evans is a wonderful one here – as both players are at their warmest, and working with a wonderful sense of tone throughout ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, Late 50s. (reissue)
LP...$27.99 29.99 ... On February 23, 2024
Beautiful early material from Betty – recorded with large group arrangements by Richard Wess, and a nicely swinging, easily jazzy feel! The record is one of Carter's more obscure sessions, and it's one of the few from the old days to really capture her jazzy vocals well in a large group ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vault/Friday Music, 1966. (reissue)
LP...$37.99 38.99 ... On February 23, 2024
A beautiful set of modal jazz tracks – recorded by the great LA pianist Jack Wilson with a young Roy Ayers! The set is amazing, and features haunting piano and vibes interplay between Ayers and Wilson – in a style that could best be summed up as LA modern modal, but which is also ...

Twospeak & Ronan Perrett

Fictions
No More Records (UK), 2024.
LP...$20.99 24.99 ... About February 23, 2024
Really dynamic work from a group who mix up equal parts jazz and prog, but with a very 21st Century vibe – almost as if they'd been digging the post-Robert Wyatt Soft Machine records of the 70s, then decided to craft something different of their own! The drums alone are fantastic – ... LP, Vinyl record album

O'Donel Levy

Simba
Groove Merchant/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. (reissue)
LP...$25.99 30.99 ... On February 23, 2024
Fantastic sounds throughout – and maybe the best album ever by this legendary 70s guitar player! O'Donel Levy's got this tremendous sound that comes from playing an electric hollow body – in a tone that takes the best bits of Grant Green and Wes Montgomery, and strips them down for a ...

Sultan Stevenson

Faithful One
Whirlwind, 2023.
LP...$36.99 38.99 ... On February 23, 2024
A really beautiful record from London pianist Sultan Stevenson – a set that seems to hearken back to the wonderful 70s territory of McCoy Tyner, especially in the way that Sultan can balance a sense of subtle majesty with an undeniable flow! Half the record features a core trio – with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Kuhn

Steve Kuhn
Buddah/Ascensionale (Italy), 1971. (reissue)
LP...$45.99 49.99 ... About February 25, 2024
An incredibly inventive album from pianist Steve Kuhn – one that takes his earlier modern style, and fuses it with a warmer sort mode for the 70s! The approach is quite unique – in that Kuhn's core trio style is augmented both by additional percussion from Airto, plus occasional string ... LP, Vinyl record album

The sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Three Blind Mice/Sony (Japan), 1970. (reissue)
LP...$43.99 49.99 ... About February 28, 2024
Early work from this tremendous Japanese saxophonist – working here on both alto and soprano sax, in styles that are sharply angular, but also quite warm and soulful! Kosuke Mine's got a quality that's a bit like Joe Henderson at the same time – obviously informed by earlier hardbop, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Common Touch (UHQCD pressing)
Blue Note (UK), 1968.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About February 28, 2024
A really great later Blue Note session from Stanley Turrentine – a small combo set that's almost a return to the format of earlier years! The group's a strong one – and features Shirley Scott on organ, Jimmy Ponder on guitar, and Idris Muhammad on drums – playing in a style that's ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1972.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About February 28, 2024
One of the all-time keyboard classics of the 70s – a completely different album than any other set from pianist Ronnie Foster – done with this laidback, open-ended groove that was years ahead of its time! The album's in some ways a blueprint for some of our favorite jazz-based hip hop ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968.
CD...$18.99 23.99 (LP...$36.99)... About February 28, 2024
A really formative album – not just as part of the key second chapter of alto genius Lou Donaldson, but also as the start of a huge generation of jazz funk grooves to come! The key element here is drummer Idris Muhammad – working in the group of Donaldson, but under his birth name of ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1965.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About February 28, 2024
Lee Morgan on the hippest side of his 60s talents – working here in a style that's really stretching out, and in the same territory as similar unreleased gems from the time – like Tom Cat or Sonic Boom! The group here is very inventive – Jackie McLean on alto, Larry Willis on ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1963.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About February 28, 2024
A rare session as a leader from trumpeter Johnny Coles – a player who cut some great work in the groups of James Moody and Gil Evans, but who shines even more brightly on this classic Blue Note album! Coles really has an ear for finding the hippest side of his instrument – and he blows ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1961.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About February 28, 2024
Heavy soul from Ike Quebec – one of Blue Note's greatest players of the 78 era in the 40s, stepping out here on one of his brilliant comeback sets from the early 60s! The set features Ike blowing in an all soul jazz mode – working with a quartet that includes some great work from ... CD

Grachan Moncur III

Evolution (UHQCD pressing)
Blue Note (Japan), 1963.
CD...$18.99 23.99 (LP...$27.99)... About February 28, 2024
Landmark material from the farther reaches of jazz in the mid 60s – one of two albums that trombonist Grachan Moncur recorded for Blue Note – and a session that ranks as one of the best examples of the "new thing" moment in 60s jazz! Grachan's leading a sextet here that ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1965.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About February 28, 2024
Quite an unusual session for trumpeter Freddie Hubbard – a set done during his early run of albums for Blue Note, but one that's got some much darker, more modern qualities than the rest! The music here almost verges on some of the "new thing" material of the period on the label ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1967.
CD...$18.99 23.99 (LP...$36.99)... About February 28, 2024
One of the hippest sets that Duke Pearson ever recorded – and an all-out Blue Note soul jazz set that's even better than Pearson's classic Sweet Honey Bee! Duke's style is deeper and more farther-reaching here – with echoes of styles used at the time by Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1966.
CD...$18.99 23.99 (LP...$25.99)... About February 28, 2024
One of a rare few albums done by pianist Cecil Taylor for the Blue Note label in the 60s – some of the most outside work recorded for the imprint at the time! The word "structures" here is perhaps a bit misplaced – as the work has a strong sense of freedom with the soloists ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1970.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About February 28, 2024
Genius, pure genius! This album's possibly the most perfectly realized set from the team of Bobby Hutcherson on vibes and Harold Land on reeds – a pair who hit territory that's slightly funky, but which is also still touched by the modal spiritualism of some of their earlier work together! ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968/1980.
CD...$18.99 23.99 ... About February 28, 2024
A wonderful session by Andrew Hill – recorded in 1968, but issued only briefly in 1981 – and out of print for years! The session is a key one in understanding Hill's work – as it's a bridge between the arch modernism of his early Blue Note sides, and the more soul-oriented ... CD

Pit Inn (Japan), 2016.
CD...$22.99 28.99 ... About March 1, 2024
The cover looks anime, but the music is anything but – and instead offers up some very live-action interplay between drummer Takeo Moriyama and pianist Fumio Itabashi! Itabashi's music is full of beautifully lyrical colors and tones, which get plenty of space to flow and flower on the album ... CD

Fumio Karashima

Summertime
Pit Inn (Japan), 2011.

Neil Ardley, Ian Carr, & Don Rendell

Greek Variations & Other Agean Exercises
EMI/Endless Happiness (UK), 1970. (reissue)
LP...$27.99 29.99 ... About March 1, 2024
A gem of a record from the groundbreaking Landsdowne series of UK jazz recordings at the end of the 70s – an ambitious effort directed by composer Neil Adrley, cut very much in the mode of the best work by the Ian Carr/Don Rendell group of the time! As the title might imply, the tunes are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, Mid 60s. (reissue)
LP...$36.99 38.99 ... On March 1, 2024
A killer "new thing" session from Blue Note's mid 60s glory days – featuring Jackie McLean, and some youthful modernists, like Cecil McBee, Bobby Hutcherson, and Charles Tolliver, all coming together in an incredibly powerful set of tracks! Billy Higgins rounds out the set on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1968.
LP...$36.99 38.99 ... On March 1, 2024
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, 1962. (reissue)
LP...$36.99 38.99 ... On March 1, 2024
One of the best non-Blue Note sessions from Art Blakey in the 60s – a really searing set that features the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers – a group that's filled with legends who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Reggie Workman ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside/Craft, 1961.
LP...$36.99 38.99 ... On March 1, 2024
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

P-Vine (Japan), 1977/1979.
CD...$18.99 24.99 ... About March 1, 2024
A huge musical treasure – a full unreleased album by Weldon Irvine, plus a bonus video as well! The music is from the stage play Young Gifted & Broke – a short-lived production by Weldon, and one that's done with some of the same hip modes he was bringing to his own music of the ... CD
Contemporary/Craft, 1971. 2LP (reissue)
LP ... About March 1, 2024
A stunning extended set from the great Woody Shaw – a majestic, spiritual album that almost feels more like something that you'd hear on the Strata East label than you might expect from the more straight ahead Contemporary Records imprint! The lineup is as majestic as the music – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1979. (reissue)

Fiesta
Teichiku/Lawson (Japan), 1961. (reissue)
LP...$45.99 54.99 ... About March 6, 2024
A brilliant early album from Japanese drummer Hideo Shiraki – a jazz session that bristles with the same intensity as key late 50s work by Benny Golson or Gigi Gryce! Although Hideo's leading the group on drums, his work on the kit is remarkably subtle – done with the snappingly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nio & Pigeon (Niou To Hato) (green vinyl pressing)

Toshiyuki Miyama really makes the New Herd cook with this cool 70s session – a smoker of a large group date, and one with a great mix of funky rhythms and complicated instrumentation! The set's got a feel that's as exotic as its cover, yet comes across with a solid, soulful punch throughout ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sony/Lawson (Japan), 1975. (reissue)
LP...$39.99 48.99 ... About March 6, 2024
Heavy funk from a hip Japanese combo – one that features lots of drums and percussion from leader Akira Ishikawa, plus plenty of guitar, keyboards, and hard-riffing horns! Akira's taking most of his cues here from American funk of the early 70s – work by Incredible Bongo Band, BT ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funky Stuff (pink vinyl pressing)
Columbia/Lawson (Japan), 1974. (reissue)
LP...$39.99 49.99 ... About March 6, 2024
Funky fusion from 70s Japan – a really great set that's heavy both on Fender Rhodes, and on a range of choppy reed lines on tenor, soprano sax, and flute! The set's got a warm glow that's perfect for the CTI generation – with an equally apt sense of space, one that keeps the record ... LP, Vinyl record album
