✨✧ George CablesCables' Vision ... LP
Contemporary, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
We'd sure like to have Cables' Vision – because by the end of the 70s, he was one of the hippest cats on the California scene! This wonderfully easygoing album from 1979 features Cables on both acoustic and electric – soaring to the sky on some numbers, kicking back on the keys on ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis CounceCurtis Counce Group Vol 2 – Counceltation ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Curtis Counce is one of the few bassists who made a great leader too, and we've always sought out the albums under his name – and this collection of rare 50s material is excellent! Players include Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Harold Land on tenor, Carl Perkins on piano, and Frank Butler on drums ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Teddy EdwardsTeddy's Ready! ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1960. Used ... $13.99
Excellent set of LA hardbop tracks by the great tenor player Teddy Edwards, with a group that includes Joe Castro, Leroy Vinnegar, and Billy Higgins. Edwards' tone is fantastic, and the tracks give him a chance to show off his soloing talent in a way that he didn't always reach on other recordings. ... (Jazz) read more CD

Art FarmerPortrait Of Art Farmer ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good ... $29.99
A beautiful set from Art – stripped-down and elegant, cut right at that time when his tone on trumpet was evolving into something sublime. The group's a perfect one for Farmer at this point – Hank Jones, Addison Farmer, and Roy Haynes, all lyrically-minded players with just the right ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing with deep groove! Vinyl has two short clicks, but is nice and clean overall. Cover has light wear, and a light bit of wear on the spine – but is nice and heavy!)

✨✧ Art FarmerSomething To Live For ... LP
Contemporary, 1987. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unexpected treasure – like so many of Art Farmer's later albums! The record is ostensibly a tribute to the music of Billy Strayhorn – which might make us expect some soporific Ellington cliches – but the session's really just a small group one, played by Art with a quintet ...

Hampton HawesAll Night Session Vol 2 ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A noteworthy session from pianist Hampton Hawes – a rare quartet session from the 50s (at a time when Hawes was mostly working in trios) – and also a three volume set of releases, all recorded in the space of a single night! The album is truly an All Night Session – as the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mel HenkeNow Spin This! ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Mel's second album for Contemporary – and every bit as great as the first! The album features Mel on piano, working in quartet format with guitar, bass, and drums – playing lively and playful arrangements of familiar tunes, in a mode that was similar to the live performance style that ...

Shelly ManneMy Fair Lady (Contemporary) ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A key early entry in the "jazz meets Broadway" genre – and a record that was so successful, it went onto inspire countless imitations! Shelly Manne's working here in a lightly playful trio setting – alongside Andre Previn on piano and Leroy Vinnegar on bass, in a reading of ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shelly ManneShelly Manne & His Men Vol 1 – The West Coast Sound ... LP
Contemporary, Early 50s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A pretty darn great record – the first full length LP cut by Shelly, issued by Contemporary in the mid 50s, and pulling together side from sessions in 1953, some of which were issued previously, others of which appear for the first time here. The tracks are short and playful – very ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly ManneSwinging Sounds – Shelly Manne & His Men Vol 4 ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1956. Used ... $11.99
Charlie Mariano was one of the best things to ever happen to Shelly Manne – as the young altoist's icy talent was a perfect match for Manne's west coast cool, but his Boston soul really added a lot more emotional depth than had ever been previously recorded on some of Manne's sessions. This ... (Jazz) read more CD

Contemporary, 1964. Very Good+ ... $24.99
The Newborn Touch is always a great one, but it sounds especially nice on this record – a set that seems to go even farther than any of Phineas' earlier trio sessions! There's an almost-ambitious sound to the record that we really like a lot – one that possibly comes from Newborn's ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Phineas NewbornWorld Of Piano (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Contemporary (Japan), 1961. Used ... $14.99
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The ... (Jazz) read more CD

Art's blowing with a quiet intensity here – not as far out as you might expect from the title, but with that crisp genius that still graced all of his records from the time!

✨✧ Sonny RollinsWay Out West ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic set that brings the east coast tenor of Sonny Rollins into contact with a west coast rhythm section of Ray Brown and Shelly Manne! Despite Rollins' silly look on the cover, and the album's overall "western" theme, the session's a brilliant one – right up there with Sonny's ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tremendous work from Howard Rumsey's early Lighthouse group – and a great example of why they were such a great act at the time! The "solo spotlight" in the title is extremely apt here – as each of the album's tracks features a standout performance by group members who emerge ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary, 1985. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
The title and cover are an homage to the Pacific Jazz label live dates from LA in the 50s – and the music here does a good job of following suit as well! Altoist Bud Shank and trumpeter Shorty Rogers are reunited beautifully in an open-ended live setting – the kind of date that really ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
