ESP (Germany), 1966. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Possibly the first true moment of genius from Paul Bley – a key indie standout after a few years working for bigger American labels!

ESP, 1966. Very Good+ ... 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, 1966. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 LP, Vinyl record album

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!

One of the best showcases we've heard for the tenor sax work of Ivo Perelman in years – an open, blue-tinged performance that seems to open up his horn with a lot more soul than we remember!
