Dada – Solo & Duo
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy
A pair of percussionists, working here together wonderfully – in a set that has both musicians using the drum kit and other percussion – and Han Bennink picking up a bit of piano as well! We've always loved Bennink's highly melodic approach – a style that seems to get notes out ... CD

Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy
Trumpeter Choi Sun Bae really blows us away here – working in this very compressed approach to his instrument that makes for some really marvelous sounds – kind of that inside-out style of the trumpet that Don Cherry unveiled on some of his key 60s recordings as a leader – but ...

Solo Duo Trio
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1994. New Copy 2LP
There's a very earthy, organic finish to the alto saxophone shown in the hands of Kang Tae Hwan on the cover – and that appearance is a great illustration of the sound on the record, too – one that builds very slowly, with almost a meditative quality – as the tones are created ...

Bugge & Friends
Jazzland (Norway), 2015. New Copy
Bugge Wessltoft returns to a style that made us first fall in love with him many years back – a hip blend of jazzy instrumentation and more cosmic 21st Century touches – all wrapped up in that sweet style that first put Norway's Jazzland label on the map! Bugge's at the helm on Fender ... CD

Two Chaps – Solo & Duo
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1994. New Copy
Two chaps, both of them great – legendary British improviser Evan Parker on tenor and soprano saxophone, working nicely alongside Yoshizawa Motoharu on bass! Although Parker was a player who first made waves early on the British free jazz scene, his work during this 90s stretch may well be ... CD

Picture Of Heath
Xanadu, 1975. New Copy
A brilliant mid 70s album from Jimmy Heath – recorded at a time when he was making some of his greatest strides on record! The album's got a spare, simple quartet format – but Jimmy's working here in a really expansively soulful sound – one that matches that of Clifford Jordan at ... CD

Brotzmann/Van Hove/Bennink – 1971 (LP sleeve edition)
JG/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Very rare, very obscure material from this important free jazz trio of the German scene in the 70s – a set that features one long performance originally issued on the JG label, despite the FMP-like image on the cover – plus two more tracks from the same year that appear here for the ... CD

Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1996. New Copy
Beautiful solo material from Japanese reedman Mototeru Takagi – tracks that were originally recorded as part of a live concert with saxophonist Asami Mitsuhito, but which feature Takagi himself all the way through! Mototeru plays tenor throughout – in a style that's openly improvised, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bone & Bari
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy
One of the "bottomest" albums you'll ever hear – as trombonist Curtis Fuller meets baritone saxophonist Tate Houston – for a real session of "bone" and "bari" grooving that's one of the most striking Blue Notes of the time! The album features the pair ... CD

Goin' Up
Blue Note (Japan), 1960. New Copy
A real burner from Freddie Hubbard's early years at Blue Note – filled with rich hues, colors, and tones! The group's a quintet – supported by lyrical rhythms from the trio of McCoy Tyner on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – working alongside Freddie's ... CD

Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy
We put the catalog number in the title of this one because it seemed that Blue Note was putting out too many title-less Hank Mobley albums during the late 50s. Who cares, though? This album's a great batch of hardbop tracks that show Mobley at his finest, and which hardly need a title to hang ... CD

AT's Delight
Blue Note (Japan), 1960. New Copy
A real stormer! This was one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by the great hardbop drummer Art Taylor – and it's one of the best from the Blue Note catalog at the time! The band is a heavily smoking one – with Dave Burns on trumpet, Stan Turrentine on tenor, and Wynton Kelly on ... CD

Talkin' About
Blue Note (Japan), 1964. New Copy
One of the great ones! Grant Green meets up with a youthful Larry Young, and the two of them are backed by Elvin Jones on drums, for a free-flowing, modally grooving set of organ/guitar cuts that are among some of the best-ever recorded for Blue Note. The album's a stunning mix of soul jazz and ... CD

New Soil
Blue Note (Japan), 1959. New Copy
If you ever needed a record to re-remind you of the genius of Jackie McLean, this Blue Note classic may well be it! At first glance, the session appears to be the usual sort of date – a quintet outing, with help from Donald Byrd on trumpet, Walter Davis on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and ... CD

Jackie's Bag
Blue Note (Japan), 1959/1960. New Copy
A real classic by Jackie McLean – a record that's pulled from 2 different sessions, but which stands out with a strikingly unified feel! The album was cut during the height of Jackie's bop years for Blue Note – with one 1959 session that featured Donald Byrd and Sonny Clark, and ... CD
