A lost little gem from Chet Baker – recorded with a gentle, homey feel that we really like!

LP...$29.99 34.99 ... About October 29, 2021
Fiercely progressive jazz from one of England's best! A great bit of funky fusion with some amazing keyboards, and more than a few slow, stretched out drum parts – making the album one of Carr's greatest sets for the beathead crowd!

Impulse, 1963. Gatefold (reissue)
LP...$31.99 35.99 ... On October 29, 2021
The title's exploding with Mingus, and the album is too – a completely classic effort for Impulse Records that's easily one of Charles' best of the 60s! Things are reigned in somewhat from the Mingus years at Atlantic or Candid, but the sound is still great – almost more focused than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hasaan Ibn Ali (Hasaan)

Metaphysics – The Lost Atlantic Album
Atlantic/Omnivore, 1965.
LP ... About November 1, 2021
A lost jazz treasure from one of the most enigmatic pianists of the 60s – the legendary Hasaan, who recorded famously with Max Roach on Atlantic Records, but who also left behind this rare session that's never seen the light of day until now!

Hank Mobley

Peckin' Time
Blue Note/LMLR, 1958. (reissue)
LP ... About November 1, 2021
One of the first great pairings of Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan – a trumpet/tenor team that was always a treasure, no matter what the setting! This one's a pretty open-ended blowing date – one that gives both horn players plenty of room to stretch out, in a setting that's filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Clark

Sonny's Crib
Blue Note/LMLR, 1957. (reissue)
LP ... About November 1, 2021
Hard-slamming genius from pianist Sonny Clark – one of his greatest albums for Blue Note, and a real cooker that's served up with an all-star group!

Muriel Grossmann

Natural Time
Dreamland (Austria), 2016.
LP...$34.99 ... About November 2, 2021
A real step forward for saxophonist Muriel Grossmann – as the set seems to have a new sort of fire that wasn't there on her debut – as Grossmann and quartet open up to embrace the world of modal rhythms!

A very groovy session from Japanese singer Miko – recording here in the US with hip grooves from the Billy Taylor Trio!

Island/Universal (Japan), 1996. (reissue)
LP ... On November 3, 2021
An excellent "comeback" LP for Ernest Ranglin, though astute observers realize he never really went away in the first place!

Governor's State University/P-Vine (Japan), 1974. (reissue)
LP...$34.99 ... About November 3, 2021

Impulse, 2021.
LP ... On November 5, 2021
Nice stuff – a much richer album than you might guess from the cover and title!

An incredible performance from the great Don Cherry – one that's maybe the most perfect summation we've ever heard of his ability to embrace a globe's worth of influences and make them his own!

Verve, 1964. Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On November 19, 2021
A key example of the popularity of the Oscar Peterson Trio in the mid 60s – an album of tracks that listeners wanted to hear done in the group's familiar style! The tunes are simple ones, mostly standards and 60s covers – but they're done by Oscar, Ray Brown, and Ed Thigpen in a mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1962. Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On November 19, 2021
One of Oscar Peterson's biggest records ever – one of those albums we turn up time and time again when digging through classic jazz collections – and for good reason too, given the lasting power of the set! The album's got a rock-solid sound that's filled with soul – almost a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1964. Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On November 19, 2021
Sharp-edged John Coltrane at his best – a record that we'd rank right up there with Love Supreme, and which is a key transition point in Coltrane's musical ideas! There's a very strong edge to Coltrane's tone here – and even on the mellower ballads, he plays with a sound not always ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1961. Gatefold (reissue)
LP ... On November 19, 2021
Sublimely spiritual work from the great John Coltrane – a live album, but one that's easily one of his most important contributions to music in the early 60s – and a set that we'd rank right up there with his best studio sides for Impulse or Atlantic Records at the time! The group here ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963. Gatefold (reissue)
LP...$31.99 35.99 ... On November 19, 2021
Fantastic – and one of Mingus' greatest albums ever!

Brutkasten/Long Hair (France), 1978. (reissue)
LP ... About November 20, 2021
An all-instrumental album from this lost German group of the late 70s – a combo who are definitely rock, but who play with some of the freer, more open modes of a jazz group too – maybe working here in a style that could be called prog fusion, or fusion prog! The lineup features work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ian Carr Double Quintet

Solar Sessions (10 inch EP)
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1970.
LP...$24.99 ... About November 20, 2021
The group's listed here as the Double Quintet of trumpeter Ian Carr, but the sound is right next to the best work of his Nucleus group for Vertigo Records – a groundbreaking blend of jazz and electric elements, served up in a style that's very different from American work of the time!

Beverly Hills/Liberation Hall, 1973. (reissue)
LP ... On November 26, 2021
A lost little gem from Chet Baker – recorded with a gentle, homey feel that we really like!

Saturn/Modern Harmonic, 1979. (reissue)

A smaller than usual version of the Arkestra – with a wonderfully spiritual groove!
