✨✧ Albert AylerBells (70s red cover pressing) ... LP
ESP, 1965. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal live set by a young Albert Ayler – an unusual one-sided record that featured only 20 minutes of music, performed with an intensity that hardly leaves room for complaints about the shortness of the album! The single track "Bells" was performed at Town Hall by Ayler with a ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

ESP, 1966. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever on the legendary ESP label – a rhythmic, soulful, early session by Marion Brown – recorded before his own albums on Impulse, but with a similar feel to the best new thing sessions of that label at the time!

ESP, 1980s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 8CD ... $68.99
An incredible legacy of jazz – one that's certainly as disconnected as promised by the title, but which stands as a much-needed look at the many-sided talents of tenorist Allen Lowe!

Wonderful solo work from Ellis Marsalis – best known as the father of Wynton and Bradford, but a heck of a great pianist with a sound that's far deeper and more complex than you might guess from his New Orleans roots!
