✨✧ Cecil Taylor & Italian Instabile OrchestraOwner Of The River Bank ... CD
Enja/Justin Time, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most complex Cecil Taylor records we've heard in years – and that's saying a lot, given the usual complexity of his music! Taylor plays piano and vocalizes a bit – but he's also tied strongly here to the Italian Instabile Orchestra – a large lineup of varied horn, ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Frank TusaFather Time ... LP
Enja, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the only albums we've ever seen from bassist Frank Tusa – a strangely organic studio session that's filled with lots of space and sound textures! Players on the album include Dave Liebman on saxes, Richie Beirach on piano, and Badal Roy on tabla – and the best tracks have a ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mal WaldronMal Waldron Plays The Blues – Live At The Domicile ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mal Waldron plays the blues, but in a way that's hardly blue at all – given that the record is one from a time when the pianist was really setting a strong modern fire on the European scene in the 70s! The group's an unusual one – with bassist Jimmy Woode, of the Clark Boland Big Band, ... (Jazz) read more CD

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About July 29, 2020
Mal Waldron on Enja – sounding wonderful here in the company of bassist Jimmy Woode and drummer Allen Blairman! The title track takes up all of side two – and the other two tracks are long too! (Jazz) CD

✨✧ Mal WaldronUp Popped The Devil ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Searing work from Mal Waldron – recorded in the early 70s with an excellent trio that features Billy Higgins on drums and Reggie Workman on bass! The group's got a lot more fire and energy than some of Waldron's other assemblages of the 70s – and the tracks are long and exploratory, ... (Jazz) read more CD

Bennie WallaceBig Jim's Tango ... LP
Enja (Germany), 1982. Very Good+ ... $5.99
With Bennie Wallace on tenor, Dave Holland on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Tracks are nice and long – and Wallace hits some of the tenor heavy lines you'd hear on a Jones trio set! (Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bennie WallaceFourteen Bar Blues ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great early work from tenorist Bennie Wallace – a set that's got a really nice edge, and which is a nice contrast to some of Bennie's smoother work in years to come! The format's a trio – ala the important Sonny Rollins mode – with Eddie Gomez on bass and Eddie Moore on drums ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Bennie WallaceFree Will ... LP
Enja/Inner City, 1980. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early set as a leader from tenorist Bennie Wallace – and one of his most heartfelt albums ever! Wallace has a tone that hearkens back to the warm raspiness of the Ben Webster/Lester Young generation – yet he also blows with a freer, more open quality that's quite contemporary too ...

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
A beautiful live album from a time when saxophonist Bennie Wallace had a mighty nice edge – this raw, raspy quality that really shines through here – thanks to a stripped-down trio setting that features Eddie Gomez on bass and Dannie Richmond on drums! The album's a lot freer at times ... (Jazz) read more CD

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Sublime solo piano from Randy Weston – just the sort of record to remind us why his skills in such a setting can always be so great! The tunes are filled with energy and rhythm right from the start – spun out in those long African-inspired lines that Randy first forged in the 50s, but ... (Jazz) read more CD

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great record – one we're surprised that we like so much! On the surface, the album appears to be an inconsequential 80s session by three older giants of their instrument – Woods on alto, Flanagan on piano, and Mitchell on bass. But Woods' tone here, although played straightly ... (Jazz) read more CD

Fantastic solo work from this revolutionary Japanese pianist – a set that maybe has Yosuke Yamashita sounding a bit warmer and more intimate than some of his Japanese albums of the time – really reveling in a range of different numbers that show of a more sensitive, personal side of his ...

Mindblowing trio work from Japanese pianist Yosuke Yamashita – in a group that's equally noteworthy for its incredible reed performances from the mighty Akira Sakata! The pairing of Sakata and Yamashita was one of the greatest things in Japanese jazz in the 70s, and certainly one of that ... (Jazz) read more CD

Four solo improvisations by Attilla Zoller – all done in that airy style that made Zoller one of the most distinctive guitarists of his generation!
