Jim PepperDakota Song ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... About January 27, 2021
One of the few albums ever cut by Native American saxophonist Jim Pepper – a great player whose ethnicity has always ensured him a strong reputation – but whose work on tenor sax should be enough! This outing is a relatively straight jazz session – a quartet date with Kirk ... (Jazz) read more CD

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Germany), 1994. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem on Enja Records – one of the few dates we've ever seen as a leader from pianist Larry Porter, who works here in a warmly swinging groove with lots of lyrical touches!

Prince LashaInside Story ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare treasure from spiritual reedman Prince Lasha – a session recorded in 1965 in New York, but one that wasn't issued until many years later by the Enja label in Germany! The album is a real revelation – and clearly marks Lasha as one of the key artists unlocking the more spiritual ... (Jazz) read more CD

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare set from reed genius Prince Lasha – one that dovetails nicely with the albums on the Birdseye label, and which features Lasha in a very similar setting! (In truth, the records may have some overlap – but we're not entirely sure.) The tracks are very long, and the record really ... (Jazz) read more CD

Japanese pianist Masahiko Sato is in a great trinity here – working with European players Peter Warren on bass and Pierre Favre on drums – on two side-long tracks that bristle with imagination!

A really amazing record from trumpeter Manfred Schoof – and one that's quite different from his better-known recordings on the European scene!

Wonderful guitar work from John Scofield – awash in those warm chromatic tones that make his work from this period so great – set up in a sweet trio with Steve Swallow on electric bass and Adam Nussbaum on drums!

A great little record in the sort of format that always worked well for Archie Shepp during this point in his career – a new take on older modes, and one that balances the tenorist perfectly between his avant jazz roots and that new appreciation of standards that started to take hold in the ...

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1992. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the most striking albums we've ever heard from pianist Aki Takase – a set that not only features work on bass from Nobuyoshi Ino, but also strong contributions from a string quartet!

The album's titled after a jazz standard, but the playing here of Aki Takase is anything but – served up on long, open tracks that aren't entirely free jazz, but which have a very spontaneous sense of creation – on long lines that mix subtle swing with an exploration of the farther ...

One of the most striking albums we've ever heard from pianist Aki Takase – in large part because of some great work from David Murray on tenor sax – and some especially nice bass clarinet!

Hard talk, and lots of heavy sounds from the great Mal Waldron – heard here in a set that may well be one of his greatest moments of the 70s!

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!
