Lorez AlexandriaDeep Roots ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good ... $24.99
One of the greatest records ever recorded by vocalist Lorez Alexandria – and a perfect summation of her rich talents as a singer! Backing is by a small Chicago trio that includes John Young on piano, Vernel Fournier on drums, and George Eskridge on bass – but the arrangements of the ...

✨✧ Milt BucknerMighty High ... LP
Argo, 1959. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet and slow-burning organ from the great Milt Buckner – a really simple session overall, but one with lots of magical touches! Milt plays with a tone that's much lighter than a lot of his contemporaries on the Hammond – not as many tricks as Jimmy Smith, and perhaps more integrated ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Argo/Universal (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $18.99
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

Argo/Chess, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Landmark work by one of the greatest jazz outfits of the early 60s! Art Farmer and Benny Golson were both known as well-composed players during the 50s – strongly soulful, but often with a fine sense of arrangement that usually tended towards the lyrical side of things. With this group, ... (Jazz) read more CD

Argo, 1960. Very Good- ... $14.99
Moody piano tracks from Chicago's soul jazz underground of the early 60s! King Fleming was one of the city's great underrated pianists, and this 1960 album for Chess/Argo features him playing a nice set of originals and standards, in the style that he would have used in the city's smaller jazz ...

Argo/Universal (Japan), 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

Argo/Universal (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $13.99
Excellent early work by Johnny Griffin – a set that's a bit more obscure than some of his Blue Note classics to come, and which was recorded on the Chicago hometown scene from which he first sprang!

Argo/Universal (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
A hard to find early album by the great Detroit pianist Barry Harris! Barry's playing here in a trio with William Austin on bass and Frank Gant on drums, and the tracks have a definite boppish quality to them – more straight ahead than some of the flowing lines he brought to later work in ...

Al HibblerMelodies By Al Hibbler (Argo) ... LP
Argo, 1956. Very Good ... $13.99
Very obscure work by Al Hibbler – a collection issued in the 50s, but which appears to include work from earlier years, as the style and sound varies a bit from track to track. The set likely brings together material that was issued on singles, at a time when Hibbler's star was really rising ... (Vocalists) read more LP, Vinyl record album

2 killers from Illinois Jacquet – back to back on one CD!
