Hank MarrLive At The Club 502 ... LP
King, 1964. Very Good ... $11.99
Some excellent soul jazz organ work from the great Hank Marr! After the myriad of fake live James Brown albums on King, we've come to distrust any liveness the label might promise – but even though the overall sound of this one seems to be studio with clapping dubbed in, the grooves are all ...

Akira MiyazawaRound Midnight ... CD
King (Japan), 1985. Used ... $9.99
One of our favorite Japanese jazz players of all time – still sounding wonderful on this date from the mid 80s! Akira Miyazawa's easily the most soulful tenorist to come out of the Japanese scene of the 60s – and here, he works with a free, open approach to his horn that almost reminds ... (Jazz) read more CD

King (Japan), 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Electric funk, with some mighty nice horns – a mix of saxes from Takeru Muraoka – plus trumpet and flugelhorn from Susumo Kazuhara too! We're not sure, but it almost feels as if Takeru's a bit overdubbed – using alto, tenor, and soprano together at various points to give the ... (Jazz) read more CD

A stone smoker from tenorist Seiichi Nakamura – thanks partly to some great trombone from Shigeharu Mukai!

Kay RobinsonWe Need Time ... LP
King, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $44.99
Obscure bit of soulful gospel produced by James Brown for King. Kay Robinson's got a great voice, and the arrangements are similar to some of James' hard soul albums from the time.

King (Japan), 1958. Used ... $16.99
A late 50s stormer from Japanese drummer Hideo Shiraki – caught here at a great point in his early career! The album's got a bit more of a swing-based feel than some of Shiraki's later sides – a bit more Verve-like energy than Blue Note style – which is a-ok with us, because the ... (Jazz) read more CD

Bossa jazz from 60s Japan – a set recorded right around the same time that Verve first started hitting bossa grooves in the US!

The music of Horace Silver is magically presented here by drummer Hideo Shiraki – grooving nicely in the same exotic approach to soul jazz you'd find on Silver's best Blue Note sides of the late 50s!
