✨✧ Lorez AlexandriaFor Swingers Only ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from Lorez Alexandria – an ultra-hip singer who recorded for Impulse and King, but who sounds especially wonderful on this rare date for Chess Records! The album's got a groove that definitely lives up to its title – a jazzy, bouncy sort of rhythm that's ... (Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Argo pressing. Back cover has a few names in pen, and front has some light wear – but this is a nice clean copy overall.)

Argo, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing album by Lorez Alexandria – probably our favorite-ever work by her!

Benny Bailey, Ake Persson, & OthersMusic Of Quincy Jones ... LP
Argo, 1960. Very Good+ ... $29.99
An excellent album that's a perfect document of the strong impact that Quincy Jones had in the transatlantic jazz scene of the late 50s and early 60s. The set was recorded in 1960, and features two players that Quincy would leave behind in Europe to have a huge influence on the scene. Trumpeter ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kenny BurrellNight At The Vanguard ... CD
Argo/Universal (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... About June 16, 2021
A hip live date from Kenny Burrell – recorded with a trio that includes Richard Davis on bass and Roy Haynes on drums – both of whom help Kenny find a groove that's a bit lighter and more fluid than usual! The rhythms here are quite gentle, almost spare at times – and always ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Jean DuShonMake Way For Jean DuShon ... LP
Argo, 1964. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the few rare albums from Jean DuShon – a very cool 60s jazz singer, working here with hip small combo backings from the Herman Foster Trio! You might know Herman from his work with Lou Donaldson, and his group here really bring a lot to the set – on titles that include "Don' ... (Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

An amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Art Farmer – playing here with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern on piano, in a laidback quartet format that really lets Art open up! Art's playing is fresh and creative throughout – never too over the top, and always blown with ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1961. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best albums ever by this crack soul jazz combo – the mighty Jazztet, an early 60s group led by Art Farmer and Benny Golson! The set was recorded in Chicago, and it features the group hard-grooving through some really well-arranged numbers – lively tunes with a snapping, in-th ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

King Fleming TrioStand By ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good ... $12.99
Incredible work from Chicago pianist King Fleming – a lost talent that had a key influence on more famous players in the scene, but who rarely got his due because he hardly left the Windy City! The set's got a really incredible feel – partly in the gentle groove of Ahmad Jamal, but ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bunky GreenTestifyin' Time ... LP
Argo, 1965. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A really great little record – and one that goes way past the hokey soul jazz reference you might guess from the title! Bunky Green's definitely "testifyin" on the set – but he's really moving past 60s soul jazz cliches, and never falling into some of the too-gospelly notes ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1962. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
One of the few fantastic collaborations between trombonist Al Grey and tenor saxophonist Billy Mitchell – made even better by some work on vibes from a young Bobby Hutcherson!

Argo, 1961. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not just a wonderful record for the music, but also for the classic cover image too – a photo of Ahmad Jamal's righteous night club The Alhambra – an Eastern-themed spot on Chicago's Michigan Ave, where Jamal made some incredible music for a few short years! Jamal was one of the few ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1960. Very Good ... $9.99
A sprightly set from the Ahmad Jamal Trio – but also a record that's not as brightly colored as you might guess from the title, thanks to a nice undercurrent of darkness in the mix! Jamal's piano work is often nicely punctuated – perhaps living up to the "happy moods" ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of Ahmad's best albums ever – a Latin-ized set of tracks done with arrangements by Richard Evans, who really knows how to make the set groove!

One of Ahmad Jamal's best early albums for Argo – a brilliant set of live recordings, done at the Spotlite Club in Washington DC in 1958 – and with a fluid vibe that's simply incredible – one of the best true statements of Jamal's genius from the early years!

Searing stuff – easily one of Etta James' greatest albums!

Queen of Soul is right!

Despite the fact that the title's "Introducing Roland Kirk", it's not actually Kirk's first album – but it is a heck of a smoker with a very unusual sound!

Ramsey and the trio are on the front in tuxedoes, top hats, and tails – but the overall sound of the record is much more in keeping with their soul jazz grooves of the late 50s – not necessarily gentlemanly, but with a worldly appreciation for a variety of styles of music, and perhaps a ...

Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A prime Argo gem from James Moody – and key proof that when he wanted to, he could be one of the hippest cats working in 60s jazz! The approach here is subtle, but amazing – a blend of hardbop with some of the more modern ideas that were coming up in the post-bop generation from the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1959. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Moody's "second phase" – the post-Overbrook time in which he picks up the flute, drops a bit of the bop style, and starts working in a much more complicated style that showed that he had a hell of a lot of room to grow as an artist! This album's Moody's second for ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
