Roulette, 1957. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Not as "adult" as you might think – at least given the way the word is used today – but pretty great work by Pearl nonetheless!

Count BasieBasie At Birdland ... LP
Roulette, 1961. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A killer set from Count Basie – recorded during the height of his years at Roulette! The back cover of the record proclaims that "Basie Is Back Home" – clearly a bit by Birdland to lay claim to being the Count's home address, which is a bit of a challenge to his KC roots! ...

One of Joe Williams' standout classics from the 50s – just the sort of record that put him on top of his game at the time! The album's one of Joe's classic outings with Count Basie – one recorded for Roulette with a slightly looser, slightly rawer feel than their work together on Verve. ...

A rare rare jam from Willie Bobo – a lively little set with a really mod groove!

One of the coolest collections of work we've ever seen by The Cadillacs – a set that definitely rocks, but which also presents the group in all their mad and many modes!

Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $24.99
An excellent early session from Candido – and one of his first to move from straighter Latin into a much groovier vein!

Incredible early work from British leader Johnny Dankworth – jazz work that's as fluid and grooving as his best 60s soundtrack sessions, and cut with an early sense of power that's really great!
