Bill PerkinsJust Friends ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1957. Very Good ... $26.99
A classic west coast session – and one of the few albums cut by tenorist Bill Perkins as a leader – and a date that's every bit as essential as postwar sides by other bigger names of the LA scene! Bill's got a great tone that really deserves to be heard – as lean and cool as ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Pacific Jazz/Universal (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer date from two of the hippest tenors of the west coast scene in the 50s – Bill Perkins and Richie Kamuca – both musicians who worked in the cool school, but could also come across with plenty of soul! The album's got both tenors working head on – hitting counterpoint ... (Jazz) read more CD

Pacific Jazz/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
Fantastic work from the legendary Buddy Rich – one of his Pacific Jazz albums from that stretch when Buddy was opening up his bag, and getting very groovy in his music!

Pacific Jazz/BGO (UK), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy stuff! We'd never say a bad word about Buddy (or else he'd sock us one!), but this album is particularly nice – as it features Rich's swinging late 60s group doing some pop/jazz covers of groovy 60s tunes, plus some very tasty originals! All tracks are pretty short, and the band ... (Jazz) read more CD

Buddy certainly knew how to keep the customer satisfied – as you'll hear on this hip set of big band grooves, recorded by Buddy for Liberty Records in 1970.

Very hard-burning work from Buddy's hip band of the mid 60s – a large ensemble, but one that features searing horn parts that cut through the bigger arrangements with ease!

A tremendous album from Annie Ross – a new recording of songs from the musical Gypsy, done in versions that are far superior to any that you may have previously heard!

A west coast classic – featuring some of Bud Shank's best small group work of the mid 50s!

Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
Back in the 50s, LA reedman Bud Shank was maybe best known for his work on alto sax, and occasionally flute – but this standout album for Pacific Jazz shows that Bud could be equally great on tenor – a quality he'd take up more in later years, as he disappeared into studio work away ...

Wonderful early work from reedman Bud Shank – one of the most lyrically expressive players on the LA scene of the 50s, and one who often disappeared into larger groups in the following decade!

Bud Shank's icy alto has been credited as one of the prime influences on the bossa movement in Brazil (partly because of his early 50's recordings with guitarist Laurindo Almeida), and this beautiful set brings him into play with a trio of Brazilian musicians that includes Joao Donato on piano. ...
