✨✧ Count BasieBasie (aka E=MC2) ... LP
Roulette, 1957. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of THE seminal Basie albums of all time – and a masterful pairing between the Count and arranger Neal Hefti! Hefti has an amazing ear for the Basie groove, and he works here to re-fit the overall sound of the group with a tighter, more fluid approach – one that ensured that they'd ...

Roulette, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most hard-hitting Count Basie albums from the Roulette Records years – and that's saying a lot, given the power of Basie at the time!

Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The genius of Basie meets the genius of Quincy Jones – a 60s pairing that's every bit as great as the 50s pairing of Basie and Neal Hefti! Jones and Basie worked together in a number of settings during the 60s – including a very successful album for Frank Sinatra on Reprise – but ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roulette, Late 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
Tremendous work from one of the greatest pairings in 50s jazz – the crack later group of Count Basie and the amazing arranging talents of the great Neal Hefti!

A great little set – despite our initial fears about the package – and a really wonderful pairing of the talents of Count Basie and Benny Carter!

Roulette, 1958. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great title for this classic Count Basie album – as it really gets at the tight, focused direction that makes Basie so great at this point in his career – his way of singling out each and every instrumentalist, and perfectly timing their performances!

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! In some ways, The Cadillacs were sort of an east coast counterpart to The Coasters – able to sing with as much ... (Soul) read more CD

Roulette/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
Earthy work from Don Crawford – a very unique artist who works in a mix of soul and folk modes – a bit like Terry Callier at points, but with some more unusual touches as well! This album's got a pretty full set of arrangements, which makes for more of a Callier-like quality than some ... (Soul) read more CD

Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
A slightly more serious affair from Brit jazzman Johnny Dankworth – and a set that points towards some of the soundtrack albums he'd cut in the 60s! There's a modern jazz-meets-classical feel here – as Dankworth's larger group of players is augmented by some fuller strings from the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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!

Roulette, 1958. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The only album we've ever seen from Cora Lee Day – a singer with a hell of a voice, and who should have reached far greater fame with work like this!

An overlooked gem from trumpeter Harry Edison – small group material cut for Roulette Records, with a sound that's maybe a bit deeper than some of his earlier albums in the 50s!

Deep-voiced trombone from the great Tyree Glenn – a player with a wonderfully expressive sound that he borrowed from the trad jazz era, but made swing in a more modern setting on records like these!
