A classic set to feature the Bill Evans Trio with the great Scott Lafaro on bass and Paul Motian on drums! Listening to the set we're reminded of what always brings us back to Evans' playing – a quality that's often described as moody, but which is really is quite spry and lively throughout ...

Fantasy/OJC, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredibly lovely live work from Bill Evans – material done at the Village Vanguard in the mid 70s, and easily one of his standout performance sessions from the time!

One of Bill Evans' landmark sessions with the young bassist Scott LaFaro – a player who made key contributions on every record he touched, then left this earth far too soon in his career!

An essential Art Farmer session from the mid 50s – and a magnificent batch of hardbop tracks that we'd rank with some of our favorite work on Blue Note!

Stormin! Tenorist Frank Foster is best known to the world for his years and years of work with Count Basie, but take it from us – his solo albums from the late 60's are waaaay better than his Basie work, and they're also some of our favorite jazz sides of all time!

A nice, cooking bop side, led by Red Garland and featuring 'Trane at his late 50s best, when he was moving between playing with the top East coast talents of the day, and playing with a ferocity that betrayed the direction he'd later take when he got really out. Donald Byrd's also in the frontline ... (Jazz) read more CD

Soul Junction's a great title for this one – because the album's a great meeting point between 50s hard bop and some of the looser, earthier styles that were beginning to show up in the first years of soul jazz!

A smokin' hard bop side from a sort of amalgamation of players who played in and out of the Jazz Messengers around this time, but Philly Joe's sittin' in the drummers seat, so though the rhythms cook hard, that not quite as bombastic as Bu's.

Hard edged jazz stuff, featuring the great tenorist in a spare (and rare) setting away from Duke Ellington's band.

An excellent – and obscure – session of female vocals from the 50s!

Few people could make a session cook like Johnny Griffin in his early years – and this late 50s sextet date is great proof of that fact!

Stellar early Riverside session put together by Johnny Griffin's friend (and impresario) Babs Gonzales.
