✨✧ Monty AlexanderRass! ... LP
MPS, 1974. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Far and away the best album that Monty Alexander cut for MPS – and an amazingly tough record to find!

MPS (Germany), 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $43.99
An excellent MPS big-band session, in a mode that's sort of a mix between the firey hardbop of the Clarke-Boland ensemble, and the more modernist work of George Gruntz.

Francy BolandOut Of The Background ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1967. Very Good+ ... $59.99
Wow! We've always gone on record as liking Mr. Boland as part of his big band with Kenny Clarke, but here on this Saba original, they wail together in a tight trio, with Jimmy Woode on bass, and Fats Sadi on bongos.
