Nat AdderleyDon't Look Back ... LP
Inner City, 1977. Very Good+ ... $11.99 14.99
Nat plays with a group that's a bit more far-reaching than the classic Cannonball funk ensembles he cut his teeth on. Players include Ken McIntyre, Onaje Allen Gumbs, and John Stubblefield, and the tracks have a bit more of a spiritual quality to them, although they are not without some of the ...

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoCertain Blacks (Inner City) ... LP
America/Inner City, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of our favorite albums ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – a key French session that captures the group at the height of their powers!

Otis BlackwellThese Are My Songs ... LP
Inner City, 1977. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Otis Blackwell takes back his songs – providing his own new versions of tunes that were recorded famously by a host of rock, pop, and R&B artists back in the 50s! The 70s session is definitely done as part of the generation that was "giving back" to the roots of rock and roll ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Andre CeccarelliCeccarelli ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
Funky French fusion from drummer Andre Ceccarelli – quite possibly his only album issued in the US, and a well-remembered set from the 70s! Andrew's working here with a shifting lineup on the sessions, and a fair bit of vocals as well – often in a mode that mixes soul and rock leanings ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eric DolphyStockholm Sessions ... LP
Enja/Inner City, 1961. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Live European work by Eric Dolphy – caught in a setting that was often freer and more creative than his American recordings! The work on the set is pulled from 2 different sessions – one with a group that includes with Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Rune Ofwerman ...

Urszula DudziakFuture Talk ... LP
Inner City, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A wonderful album of hip jazzy vocals from Urszula Dudziak – an amazing singer who was sort of Poland's version of Flora Purim! Like Flora, Urszula had a fierce scatting and riffing style that broke way past the work of earlier female jazz singers – and she always applied this style to ...

Roy EldridgeLittle Jazz (Jazz Legacy) ... LP
Inner City, 1950. Near Mint- ... $4.99
There's nothing little about the talents of Roy Eldridge on the trumpet – as you'll hear in this hip set of tracks from the start of the 50s – material recorded in Paris with help from some great American sidemen! Half the tracks feature Roy's trumpet in a quintet with Zoot Sims on ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Inner City, 1969/1971. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A great record – and on that hardly ever shows up on the radar screen of Gil's career! The session was recorded with a very hip group that includes Billy Harper on tenor and flute, Elvin Jones and Alphonze Mouzon on drums, Joe Beck on electric guitar, and Herb Bushler on Fender bass.

✨✧ Tal FarlowTrilogy ... LP
Inner City, 1981. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really lovely work from guitarist Tal Farlow – recording here long after his famous Verve Records years, but still sounding great! The title refers to the mostly trio format of the date – a session that has Tal on hollow-body electric, Mike Nock on piano, and Lyn Christie on bass ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

David FriesenStar Dance ... LP
Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the more compelling sessions from the left side of the Inner City jazz label of the 70s – work that's partly fusion, but with plenty of aspects that push it far from the mainstream! Leader David Friesen plays acoustic bass on the set, but he's in a group with John Stowell on electric ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David Friesen & John StowellThrough The Listening Glass ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy sounds from the team of David Friesen and John Stowell – mostly acoustic lines from the two string-based players, but with some other odd bits as well – and both soprano and tenor sax from Gary Campbell!

Inner City, 1977. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic stuff – one of pianist Hal Galper's best non-electric sets of the 70s! Galper's working here with a quartet – playing piano in a group that includes Terumasa Hino on trumpet, Cecil McBee on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – all astounding players who really make the ...

Stan GetzStan Getz Gold – Happy 50th Stan – A Celebration Live At Montmartre ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
Fantastic work from Stan Getz! The sound here is wonderful – moody late 70s Getz, with some especially soulful moments on the mellow tracks too – that kind of spun-out blowing that we first started finding in Stan's career right around the Sweet Rain album, and which continued to show ...

Dizzy GillespieHavin' A Good Time In Paris ... CD
Inner City, 1952. Used ... $6.99 9.99
Dizzy Gillespie plays here with the great Don Byas on tenor sax – joining Diz on two different Parisian dates from early 1952, both of them pretty darn sweet! The first session here is quite unusual – in that it features Humberto Cano on congas – bringing in a bit of a Cubop ... (Jazz) read more CD

Johnny GriffinLive In Tokyo ... LP
Inner City, 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the most hard-burning Johnny Griffin records of the 70s – a cooking live se recorded in Tokyo, with energy that's much more freewheeling and open than his studio records of the time! The tracks are all quite long, and move with a quickly-expressive quality that's totally great – ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Abbey LincolnPeople In Me ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
A great session that was recorded in Tokyo in 1973 – featuring Abbey backed by a small group that includes Dave Liebman on sax and flute, Al Foster on drums, and Hiromasa Suzuki on piano.

✨✧ Abbey Lincoln with Archie SheppGolden Lady ... LP
Inner City, 1981. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully moody album from Abbey Lincoln – one that's a bit more laidback than some of her other efforts, but no less soulful! There's kind of a broken, jagged sound to the record – a late nite vibe that's blue and melancholy, and which gets some great support from the tenor sax of ...

✨✧ Charlie MarianoOctober ... LP
Contemp/Inner City, 1977. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost set from Charlie Mariano's years in Europe – very different work than the sound of his early material in the US, and proof that Mariano's globe trotting had really opened up his sound! Charlie blows soprano, alto, flute, and nagaswaram here – in a group that also includes Reiner ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Steeplechase/Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem! During the mid 70s, Jackie McLean cut a few fantastic records that had a very spiritual vibe, and which added in a lot more soul than in previous sessions from the 60s. Part of the strength of these recordings – including this one – is the other musicians in the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Inner City, 1973. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great meeting of two generations of jazz – and one that really blows the top off some of Dexter Gordon's other European sessions of the time!

One of the last sessions Oliver Nelson ever recorded – a genius batch of work recorded for the Japanese East Wind label, and maybe one of his greatest albums ever!

Surprisingly wonderful work by Cybill Shepherd – recorded early in her career, and a very serious attempt to express herself as a jazz vocalist!

Lew Tabackin looks a bit stiff on the cover of this one (who wouldn't, in a tan polyester suit?) – but the record's a surprisingly hip date, and a great chance to hear Lew away from his 70s big band with Toshiko Akioshi!

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!
