Albert AylerSpiritual Unity (with bonus track) ... CD
ESP, 1964. New Copy ... $12.99
A landmark recording – Albert Ayler's first album for the ESP label, and a record that hit the jazz world like a bullet! Spiritual Unity sets the stage for a format that would become huge in the European avant scene of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and even today – the sax-driven power-trio, ... (Jazz) read more CD

Ronnie BoykinsWill Come Is Now (aka Ronnie Boykins) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ESP, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... About January 22, 2021
A rare non-Sun Ra session from bassist Ronnie Boykins! Boykins was one of Ra's most long-term players – a key part of the Arkestra for many years – but on this album, he hits a totally different sound –and one that's somewhat spiritual as well! The group's got a great sax-heavy ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Dunmall & Chris CorsanoIdentical Sunsets ... CD
ESP, 2010. Used ... $4.99
A great return to the ESP Records avant jazz tradition – a new recording that features spare duets between tenor saxophonist Paul Dunmall and drummer Chris Corsano! Dunmall actually starts out the record on border pipes – a bagpipe-like instrument that makes for a weird, wild Rufus ... (Jazz) read more CD

FugsFugs First Album (70s pressing) ... LP
ESP, 1965. Sealed ... $29.99
The legendary first album by The Fugs – a set that was first issued on Folkways Records, then later on ESP – and which is maybe a perfect bridge between these different underground worlds in the 60s! Ed Sanders, Tuli Kupferberg, Peter Stampfel, and the others are clearly budding ... (Rock) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Italian Base pressing, from the early 80s. Cover has some light aging, but is nice overall.)

ESP, 1965. Used ... $9.99
One of the only albums as a leader from bassist Henry Grimes – a hell of a great player who'd made his name working with Sonny Rollins, but who steps out here into much freer territory! The group features Grimes at the helm on bass, but also features killer contributions from Perry Robinson ... (Jazz) read more CD

ESP, 2019. Used ... $6.99
It's been many years since we last heard from pianist Peter Lemer – the British musician who gave the world a wonderful album on ESP Records in the late 60s, and who finally returns to the fold to share his music again!

ESP, 1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite records ever from ESP – a set that's got even more soul and spirit than we usually hear from the label! The album's one of the first (and few) from saxophonist Frank Lowe as a leader – and it's a unique date that also features alto and soprano sax from Joseph Jarman ... (Jazz) read more CD

That's Mat Walerian on the cover, looking all nice and spooky – but the group has a very down-to-earth, familiar trio at the core – Matthew Shipp on piano, William Parker on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums and percussion – players who really give the album a lot of well-grounded ...
