Federal/King, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the best R&B you could ever buy! Wynonie Harris was one of the all-time greats – a raw, raunchy, hard-rockin singer who was getting into more trouble with the law, ladies, and booze than most 70s rock groups combined! Wynonie's songs for King are the stuff that kick-started rock ... (Soul) read more CD

King (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet electric fusion from Japanese drummer Motohiko Hino – a set that's got a deeper vibe than some of his other work of the 70s! The set's a live one, and all tracks are quite long – played with an open, exploratory feel by the group – in ways that are almost an extension of ... (Jazz) read more CD

King (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
It could well be argued that in the 70s, the Japanese jazz scene was possibly the greatest place to be a bassist – as players like Yoshi Ikeda really had a chance to stretch out their sound, and try something new with records like this!

Keyboardist Masaru Imada in a really great setting – working alongside a tight trombone lineup with a really bold sound!

The punch here is in the groove – a nice little burst down at the bottom of the rhythms, which makes most of these tunes swing nicely! The set's a bit hard to describe right off the bat – but it's kind of a mix of jazz ensemble swinging with some groovier 60s modes – bits of ... (Jazz) read more CD

Lovely work from Kimiko Kasai – easily one of the best female jazz vocalists on the Japanese scene in the 70s!
