Hi Hat (UK), 1976. New Copy
One of the strongest live performances we've heard from Cecil Taylor in the 70s – a set that doesn't just focus on Taylor's freewheeling piano lines, but seems to draw equally from all the members of the group! That quality is extremely important, given that the group is such a great one ... CD

Impulse, 1964. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)
A hugely expanded version of this classic – with full recordings from the session! The core record is maybe one of the greatest jazz albums of all time – a real breakthrough moment for the legendary John Coltrane, and the blueprint for generations of jazz records to come! Trane was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Into The Silence
ECM (Germany), 2016. New Copy
No silence here – and instead just a warm flow of sound from the trumpet of Avishai Cohen, and his well-matched group – a quintet that also features Bill McHenry on tenor, Yonathan Avishai on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Nasheet Waits on drums – all players who hit the same sort ... CD

Distance
ECM (Germany), 2016. New Copy
Bassist Michael Formanek works here with his Ensemble Kolossus – a group that's maybe not as big as their name, but who manage to bring a very full sound to the album overall! The lineup features trumpets from Ralph Alessi and Dave Ballou, cornet from Kirk Knuffke, baritone from Tim Berne, ... CD

Transatlantic (UK), 1969. Near Mint-
A landmark set from the freer side of the British jazz scene at the end of the 60s – a relatively open-ended session cut by alto saxophonist Trevor Watts with his Amalgam trio – a great group that features John Stevens on drums and Jeff Clyne on bass (although Barry Guy also sits in on ...

Music Gallery, Mid 70s. Very Good+ 2LP
70s avant jazz from Canada – by a group that includes work from filmmaker Michael Snow! LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BYG (France), 1969. Very Good+ 2LP
2 classics by the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – back to back on one 2LP set! At the time they were taking Paris by storm, the Art Ensemble recorded these brilliant albums – both of which are some of their strongest early work, far more well-formed than any of their individual expressions ...

ESP, 1965. Near Mint-
A seminal live set by a young Albert Ayler – an unusual one-sided record that featured only 20 minutes of music, performed with an intensity that hardly leaves room for complaints about the shortness of the album! The single track "Bells" was performed at Town Hall by Ayler with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, Mid 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint- 18LP Box Set
The complete Riverside recordings! Complete! That's 18 LPs worth of Bill Evans, documenting some of the finest performances he ever recorded. As you'd expect, there's quite a lot of trio sides presented here, including the great group featuring Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian, but there's also a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Takt (Japan), 1969. Very Good+
A great little session from this excellent Japanese alto player – and although the title and track list might make you think that the record's a straight run of classic bop tunes, it's actually got a lot of Watanabe's modal groove and a very nice edgey feel that pushes it way past the regular ...

On The Air
US Air Force, 1976. Very Good+
These guys were a group made up of members of the US Air Force during the 70s – and like similar bands of their type, they do a pretty good job of faking some of the funk and soul numbers of their day, transforming the tunes a bit to fit their big band style, but also hanging a lot of work on ...

Marathon 75 – Vol 5
Andrew's Music, 1975. Near Mint-
Incredible work from one of the unsung geniuses of American jazz – the great saxophonist Andrew White, an amazingly soulful talent with a really deep range of expression! This amazing package documents most of a 12 hour "marathon" played by White in the mid 70s – a concert ... LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse/ORG, 1962. Near Mint- 2LP
A perennial favorite in the John Coltrane catalog – a beautiful set of standards, handled in a warm laidback style – one that shows that Trane's groundbreaking group with Jimmy Garrison on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and McCoy Tyner on piano could still express themselves with even more ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Pablo/Analogue Productions, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP
An all-star jam session from Montreux in 1973 – recorded in true Verve style by the great Norman Granz, Count Basie at the head of a group that includes Louie Bellson, Ray Brown, JJ Johnson, Harry Edison, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, and Zoot Sims! Tracks are nice lengthy rakes of Basie classics, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1957. Near Mint- 2LP
A landmark album from Sonny Rollins – a record that really lives up to its title, as it shows the maturing tenorist really finding his own voice in jazz – a sound that's unlike any other! Rollins' Riverside work sometimes seems to get overlooked sometimes in light of his freer late 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album

De Prepo
Whatmusic (UK), 1972. Near Mint- (reissue)
Heavy fusion from Argentina – an experimental album from the early 70s, played by a very hip group! The quintet features a lineup that includes some great Fender Rhodes by Fernando Gelbard, plus bass, drums, and soprano sax – all coming together in a style that's partially influenced ...

Watermelon Man
Epic, 1963. Very Good
A killer lost groover! Frank Hunter & The Huntsmen were an obscure little combo who were probably just a loose collective of studio musicians – but man, do they know how to rock! The group's got a hard wailing tenor sound, mixed with some very heavy rhythm playing – and the result ... LP, Vinyl record album
