RCA/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1974. (reissue)
LP ... About November 10, 2018
A genius bit of work from the legendary Weldon Irvine – a mightily righteous effort that more than lives up to its heady title and cover! After turning out 2 great albums on his own indie Nodlew label, Weldon really steps into greatness with this set – using the bigger budget of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1977.
CD ... On December 5, 2018
The Village Vanguard seemed to be one of the greatest settings for the Great Jazz Trio of Hank Jones, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – as the venue really let them stretch out in the kind of loose, open lines that made their 70s albums so great! This set's the 3rd that the trio recorded at ... CD
Moreover
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1980.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
A slightly different lineup than usual for the Great Jazz Trio – but a great one too, and proof that the group had way more to offer than just familiar trio grooving! This time around, Eddie Gomez is on bass – making for a wonderfully full, rich sound in the rhythms – a perfect ... CD
Chapter II
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1980.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
The second part of a great Japanese-only session recorded in 1980 – one that features a later edition of the Great Jazz Trio – with Eddie Gomez on bass and Al Foster on drums, next to piano by usual group member Hank Jones! The set's got a hipper feel than usual for the group – ... CD
Direct From LA
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1978.
CD ... On December 5, 2018
The Great Jazz Trio really stretch out here – taking each of the album's four songs at a mighty relaxed pace – which allows even more room than ever for the creative expression of Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! The cover's got a slick look that ... CD
Pentagon
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
A really wonderful album that's sometimes overlooked because of it's relatively oblique cover and name – which both hide the wonderful talents within! In truth, the set might be billed as a Cedar Walton session – or maybe almost an Eastern Rebellion one – as the vibe here is very ... CD
Three
East Wind (Japan), 1975.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
Quite possibly one of the most successful Japanese piano trio recordings of the 70s – a super-session performed by a group that includes Joe Sample on acoustic piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums! Given that Sample's best known during the era for his electric keys with the ... CD
Crystal Green
East Wind (Japan), 1976.
CD ... On December 5, 2018
A buttery smooth set of Japanese fusion from the 70s – featuring all-star American players like Eric Gale, Steve Gadd, Ralph MacDonald, Cornell Dupree, Michael Brecker, and keyboardist Will Boulware. The strength of the set lies on the interplay between Boulware's work on Fender Rhodes and ... CD
Great Tokyo Meeting
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
A great Tokyo meeting from this wonderful trio – and a great little record that even stands out from most of their others from the time! The set's got a surprising amount of original material by the members of the group – as each player contributes at least one title – and these ... CD
Milestones
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
One of a number of late 70s milestones from the Great Jazz Trio – that sublime grouping of Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! Like the rest of their gems from the time, the album's got this simple, subtle brilliance – a way of approaching piano trio ... CD
Going Home
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
Wonderful work from this really unique west coast combo of the 70s – a quartet that draws plenty from key contributions of each of its members – but which also has a very special sound in the acoustic guitar of Laurindo Almeida! Almeida's a player who'd already been working in LA for ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
A beautiful group, and one with a very unique sound – a style that draws from the early 50s experiments in Brazilian jazz by Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida – but which also moves the approach into even more sophisticated 70s territory! The quartet features Almeida on acoustic guitar ... CD
New Wine In Old Bottles
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1978.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
A very apt title – as Jackie McLean sits in for a soulful session with the Great Jazz Trio of Hank Jones, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – all "old bottles" at this point in their career, but working together beautifully to brew some very mellow "new wine"! The album' ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1977.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
The title's a wonderful one – given the warmth and great spirit of this legendary trio – a near-perfect assemblage of the talents of Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! Both Carter and Williams help Hank to hit the hipper side of his talents for the 70s ... CD

Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1970.
CD ... About October 24, 2018
An early US session from trumpeter Terumasa Hino – working here in a very long and stretched-out style – very much the most edgy modes of his earliest years! Tracks are all quite long, and really open up with fierce horn work – both from Hino on trumpet and flugelhorn, and from ... CD
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1970.
CD ... About October 24, 2018
One of our favorite albums ever by this inventive Japanese trumpeter – and a really that really lives up to its title! Terumasa's entering his spacey period here – but not too spacey – and he's playing in a stretched out style that takes his trumpet into warm soulful lines that ... CD
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1969.
CD ... About October 24, 2018
A pivotal recording from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – done in a crackling electric mode that's a real departure from his earlier work! Terumasa's probably gotten a bit of inspiration here from Bitches Brew (as you might guess from one of the titles, "Like Miles") – but ... CD
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1968.
CD ... About October 24, 2018
An early showcase for the talents of Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – a smoking set that showcases his talents in two different settings! The album begins with a quintet that features Hino with Takeru Muraoka on tenor and Hiromasa Suzuki on piano – working through a great open-ended ... CD
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1967.
CD ... About October 24, 2018
An incredible session of Japanese hard bop from the 60s – recorded by the crack quintet of trumpeter Terumasa Hino and pianist Masabumi Kikuchi! The feel here is very much in that Blue Note modern mode of the late 60s – with drawn-out tracks that hit a slightly modal groove that ... CD
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1968.
CD ... About October 24, 2018
An early hardbop gem from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – quite different than you might think from his more famous work of the 70s – with a rolling, soulful groove that would almost be at home on 60s Blue Note! Given Hino's chosen instrument, we'd probably link this one best to ... CD
Takt/Columbia (Japan), 1967.
CD ... About October 24, 2018
One of the great ones from the young Terumasa Hino – a beautiful quartet session that really demonstrates his strength as a soloist on the trumpet! As you might guess from the title, there's a nice sense of melancholy to the record – a blueness that's carried off wonderfully by Hino on ... CD

Some great funky jazz by one of Poland's greatest musicians! Zbigniew Namyslowski cut his teeth playing modernist alto sax in the group of Krzystof Komeda, but on this mid 70s set, he's grooving hard in a tight set of choppy fusion tracks with that hard European approach on the downbeat! The ... CD

A fantastic project that links together two legends in Polish jazz – saxophonist Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski, whose tenor has been blowing our minds for decades – and the late jazz/soundtrack composer Krzysztof Komeda, whose music is featured in the set! The album's based around a longer ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic funky flute from Ronald Snijders – a European player of the 70s, but one whose work really reminds us a lot of the soulful groove of Bobbi Humphrey at the same time!

A classic album from French pianist Maurice Vander – easily one of the liveliest talents on the keys in postwar Paris, and a player who'd soaked up plenty of influence from Bud Powell's days in France! Maurice is heard here in a tight trio that features Kenny Clarke on drums and Pierre ... CD
Bop-Be
Impulse (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
No bebop here, despite what you might guess from the title – and instead an album of much freer lines and wider musical vision, captured with Keith Jarrett's famous group of the 70s! Jarrett plays a bit of soprano sax alongside his piano, and the rest of the quartet features Dewey Redman on ... CD
Byablue
Impulse (Japan), 1976.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
There's a nicely warming vibe on this album from Keith Jarrett – a sound that's sometimes a bit more laidback and personal, but which is still carried off with familiar associates Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums! Most of the tunes are shorter ... CD
Shades
ABC/Impulse (Japan), 1975.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
A lost gem from Keith's "with horns" period – a quintet session from the mid 70s, recorded with a group that features Dewey Redman on tenor, plus Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums and percussion, and Guilherme Franco on additional percussion. The feel is a bit straighter ... CD
Mysteries
Impulse (Japan), 1975.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
Dark and moody work from Keith Jarrett – a record that builds strongly off his ensemble feeling of the Impulse years, but which also seems to carry a bit more of the introspective vibe he was building up in some of his more stripped down solo recordings! The group's still a great one here ... CD
Back Hand
ABC/Impulse (Japan), 1974.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
Prime Keith Jarrett on Impulse Records – and a still-wonderful session that features work by Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, and Paul Motian! The sound here is a bit more focused than on some of Jarrett's earlier Impulse sides – but still has that rich and organic sound overall – ... CD
Dot/Universal (Japan), 1954.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by pianist Lorraine Geller – a player who's probably best remembered for her work with saxophonist (and husband) Herb Geller, but who also really swings nicely on her own! The album has Lorraine working with an LA trio that features Leroy Vinnegar ... CD
Al & Zoot
Coral/Universal (Japan), 1957.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
Tremendous horn interplay from the team of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims – and a record that may well be one of the best illustrations of their famous magic together in the 50s! The record's got a way of focusing energy, yet letting each player state themselves clearly and cleanly – almost a ... CD
Guys And Dolls Like Vibes
Decca (Japan), 1958.
CD ... About December 5, 2018
Forget the theme of this one – because the album's a lot hipper than you'd expect! Sure, it's one of those "jazz meets showtunes" albums – in this case, tunes from Guys & Dolls – but the group's a sharply modern one, and features the vibes of Eddie Costa in a ... CD
