Blue Note, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
A killer hardbop session from the early 60s – one of Sonny Clark's later sides for Blue Note, and an album that features a great lineup of players that includes lesser-known Blue Note hornmen Charlie Rouse and Tommy Turrentine! The record crackles with the energy and imagination of Clark's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild Dance
ECM (Germany), 2015. New Copy
Nothing too wild here, as the album's got the full, spacious sort of sound that we've come to expect from Enrico Rava on ECM – that way of capturing his trumpet lines to that they hang easily in space, and really get the chance to open up – especially here in the company of guest ... CD

Blue Note, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)
One of the greatest Donald Byrd albums ever – a smoking live performance spread out over two different records – all with some of the tightest, most grooving work that Byrd ever recorded in his early years on Blue Note! Part of the strength of the set is the group – as Don's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1966. New Copy (reissue)
Pivotal work from Freddie Hubbard – a tight, edgey quintet side with a sound that approaches the Blue Note "new thing" sound, but which stays just this side of the fence to keep in line with Freddie's other soulful work of the 60s! The group features some great work by James ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1999. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Brilliant work from Stefon Harris – one of the boldest voices on vibes of his generation– with a sound that resonates strongly with older work by Bobby Hutcherson and Walt Dickerson! Like both of those players, Harris has a way of approaching the vibes that is freshly modern, yet also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aum Fidelity, 2015. New Copy 3CD
A beautiful box of work from bassist William Parker – and a set that actually features three very different projects, all brought together in a single set! First up is a CD that features a long piece commissioned by The Kitchen – "For Fannie Lou Hamer" – with music by ... CD

Real Thing
High Note, 2015. New Copy
A real high point for tenorist Eric Alexander – whose recordings for High Note to date have all been very impressive – and they just keep getting better and better! He's working here with frequent collaborators Harold Mabern on piano, John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums ... CD

Aum Fidelity, 2015. New Copy
A very unusual album from reedman Darius Jones – a special project dedicated to the legendary French vocalist Brigitte Fontaine, with vocals that definitely recall the singer at some of her most adventurous moments! Fontaine's no stranger to the racks at Dusty Groove – as we've loved ... CD

Guitar In Ernest
RCA/Dub Store (Japan), 1965. New Copy
Excellent early material from guitarist Ernest Ranglin – a player you may know better from his famous reggae and rocksteady session work of the 60s and 70s – but who sounds equally great hear in a straight jazz format too! The album's got a tight small combo approach – with very ... CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1977. New Copy
A sweet little disco set from Herbie Mann – recorded in collaboration with the Fire Island soul vocal trio! The group's got a sound that's kind of compelling – not as sweet or smooth as some of the other disco trios of the time, and with an approach that almost has the voices moving in ... CD

Zebra

Bethlehem (Japan), 1960. Used
A killer of an album from one of the best hardbop trombonists of the 50s! This side's always been wickedly hard to find, and it comes from that later period when the Bethlehem label was cutting records that had a lot more of a soulful groove than earlier years. Bennie's playing with a hip group ... CD

A sweet 10" album collection of early bop material on Savoy – tracks from Budd Johnson, JJ Johnson, Milt Jackson, Leo Parker, Stan Getz, and Fats Navarro! LP, Vinyl record album

Dreamer
Savoy, Late 50s. Very Good
One of Yusef's fantastic LPs for the Savoy label, featuring the great multi-reed player amidst a tight quintet of Detroit players like Terry Pollard on piano, Bernard McKinney on euphonium, Bill Austin on bass, and Frank Gant on drums. Clear evidence that the Detroit spiritual jazz scene stretched ... LP, Vinyl record album

Le Roy Bostic, Early 60s. Very Good
Features alto sax from the leader, trumpet from Wilbur Wilson, and vocals by the whole group! LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1959. Sealed 2LP
One of the greatest Cannonball Adderley albums from the Riverside years – a completely smoking live date recorded in San Francisco, often with long tracks that really let the group open up and do their thing! The lineup here is that classic one that first grabbed attention – the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1959. Sealed 2LP
A great little session from Wynton Kelly – one that has him breaking out of the lyrical roots of his trio work, and hitting some harder notes as a leader of a larger hardbop group! The album features Kelly working in both trio and sextet format – the latter with players who include Nat ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bluesey Burrell (2LP 180 gram pressing – 45rpm)
Moodsville/Analogue Productions, 1962. Sealed 2LP
A great little album from Kenny Burrell – one that has Ray Barretto's congas on most cuts, giving the album a similar Latiny feel to Kenny's classic Midnight Blue album on Blue Note! The Latin undercurrent hits both New York and bossa-styled modes – a great setting for Burrell's thin, ... LP, Vinyl record album

ESP, 1961. Near Mint-
Features Bud Powell on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums! LP, Vinyl record album
