✨✧ Alvin QueenI Ain't Looking At You ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent organ-heavy session from drummer Alvin Queen – one of the hippest cats working in the soul jazz underground, and a player who never fails to deliver great music over the years! This set's even more of a cooker than some of Queen's other recent albums – and features Mike ... (Jazz) read more CD

Charlie Rouse, Benny Bailey, & OthersUpper Manhattan Jazz Society ... LP
Enja (Germany), 1981. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A great amalgamation of players – and a quintet with powers far beyond their hokey name! The group's working in a polished approach to post-bop – a bit like styles heard on some of the Timeless and Steeplechase sessions of the late 70s, but with a more directive approach that really ...

✨✧ John ScofieldLive (Enja) ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The young John Scofield is a player with an amazing command of chromes – this way of putting forth all these new changes in jazz, and really transforming the role of the guitar in the music with important 70s records like this!

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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!

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $16.99
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!

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $16.99
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 ...

Enja/Blue Moon, 1976. Used ... $9.99
One of Cecil Taylor's most spiritual sessions of the 70s – a live set recorded in Yugoslavia in 1976, and done with this really open sound, but one that comes as much from the horns as it does from Cecil's piano! In fact, we might well say that the horns are the best attraction here – ... (Jazz) read more CD

McCoy Tyner certainly should have no trouble remembering John – given that Coltrane was once his old boss – but apart from that easy reference in the title, the set has plenty more to offer – and is easily one of the most dynamic Tyner trio sessions from the later years of his ...
