✨✧ Byron Allen TrioByron Allen Trio ... CD
ESP/ZYX (Germany), 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautifully free alto work from Byron Allen – a player who really shines brightly on this rare session for ESP Records – one of the few ever cut under his own name! Allen's got a style that's right up there with the 60s best from Ornette Coleman or Marion Brown – able to move ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Albert AylerComplete Live At Slug's Saloon Recordings ... CD
Lonehill/ESP (Spain), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The complete recordings from Albert Ayler's 1966 ESP set at Slugs Nightclub – located in his home turf of the East Village, a very fervent setting for avant jazz at the time! The material has a feel that's a lot like Ayler's studio recordings for ESP, but the tracks are longer overall, and ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Albert AylerNew York Eye & Ear Control ... CD
ESP, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal ESP work from Albert Ayler – a unique session done as a soundtrack to a short (and weird!) film from experimental director Michael Snow!

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

Gato BarbieriIn Search Of The Mystery ... LP
ESP, 1967. Very Good+ ... $39.99
One of the first albums ever cut as a leader by reedman Gato Barbieri – and a very sharp-edged session that's quite different than his better-known work in the 70s! Barbieri's tenor here has an incredible tone – as deeply soulful as Pharoah Sanders or late John Coltrane, and blown with ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Black & white label pressing. Cover has some light wear, light splitting on the spine, and a small bit of pen – but is nice overall.)

Robbie BashoLive In Forli – Italy 1982 ... LP
ESP, 1982. New Copy ... $23.99
A breathtakingly beautiful recording of the legendary Robbie Basho – and a much-needed addition to his too-small catalog of albums! Make no mistake, Basho has given us some key records over the years – but his genius was so deep, and his life was so short, it always feels like there ...

ESP, 2021. New Copy ... $12.99
Three very inventive improvisers, all coming together in a set of performances inspired by the work of artist/writer Robert Henri – but with sounds that are definitely all their own!

✨✧ Paul BleyBarrage ... CD
ESP, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A blasting barrage of sound from Paul Bley – a fierce session that's right up there with the most dynamic ESP work of the 60s – and quite different from some of Bley's more introspective music! The group here is a quintet – with bold work from Marshall Allen on alto sax and Dewey ... (Jazz) read more CD

Incredible work from Don Cherry – a previously unreleased live date from the 60s, but every bit as great as any of his better-known records from the decade!

ESP, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the most obscure 60s jazz sessions on ESP – a really free outing from pianist Lowell Davidson, working here in a trio that includes Gary Peacock on bass and Milford Graves on drums! Davidson's approach to the keys is quite far out, especially for the time – very much in the mode ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Really well-crafted improvisations from an equally well-matched quartet – Matthew Shipp on piano, Allen Lowe on tenor and alto, Kevin Ray on bass, and Gerald Cleaver on drums – all players who really let loose here, but with this inherent sense of structure that's wonderful – ...

The legendary Joe McPhee makes a great appearance here – pushing the Flow Trio to a level of intensity that makes the album rival some of the mid 60s greats from the early years of the ESP label!

ESP, 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A classic album of avant percussion – even if the title's a bit misleading!

Some of the earliest music ever from The Holy Modal Rounders – a rare live performance from 1965, recorded at the Chess Mate nightclub in Detroit, and featuring only the duo of Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber! The music here is a bit more folksy and a bit less trippy than some of the Rounders' ... (Rock) read more CD

Some of the most tripped-out music ever from The Holy Modal Rounders – and that's saying a lot, given the nature of the group! This unique early album on ESP features two side-long tracks – both of which are mini-suites of sort, and filled with odd sounds, weird themes, and a strange ... (Rock) read more CD

Moody sounds from this reunited trio – Thollem McDonas on piano, William Parker on bass, and Nels Cline on guitar and effects – coming together here in a session that, we think, was recorded at the same time as their previous Gowanus album!

Nicely bracing work from reedman Larry Ochs – a player you might know from his long legacy in Rova Sax Quartet, but who's often even more striking in a stripped-down setting like this!

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 ...
