Eric AlexanderGentle Ballads (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2004. New Copy (reissue)... $56.99
A long-overdue session of ballads from modern tenor giant Eric Alexander – a player we've always loved for his soaring, leaping lines on soul jazz sets – but who also has just the right tone to carry off an album of mellow tunes and ballads! Alexander's tone reminds us a lot of the ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eric AlexanderGentle Ballads 2 ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2006. Used ... $24.99
The ballads are gentle, but the music is great – played in a strongly classic style on the tenor by the great Eric Alexander, all at a level that's much higher than you'd guess from the cheesy nudie image on the cover! The album's a great follow up to Alexander's first session on this vein ... (Jazz) read more CD

Richie BeirachWhat Is This Thing Called Love (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 1999. New Copy ... $56.99
Richie Beirach swings nicely on some of this set, but also manages to kick back a bit on a few ballads too – dropping out of the heavier rhythm on the swingers from George Mraz on bass and Billy Hart on drums – to hit some mellower modes that really show off the sensitive side of his ...

Venus (Japan), 1998. New Copy (reissue)... $56.99
S'Wonderful music from pianist Bill Charlap – especially considering that he's got the Washington brothers along to help him on rhythm!

✨✧ Andrew CyrilleOde To The Living Tree (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 1994. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure genius from Andrew Cyrille – a record that's got a bit more of a soaring, spiritual vibe than some of his more freely improvised work of the past – a set that marks a key chapter in this stretch of the drummer's career, similar to his album on DIW at the same time! The group is ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Four FreshmanYoung & Foolish – Live In Holland ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
Not the classic vocal quartet – instead a much younger ensemble, but working very much in the same tradition accompanying themselves on guitar, trumpet, trombone, bass, and drums. The core of the album features the quartet on its own, but includes a few larger arrangements with the ... (Vocalists) read more CD

✨✧ Four Levels Of ExistenceFour Levels Of Existence ... CD
Venus/Lion, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A raw and quite excellent batch of fuzzy Greek psychedelic rock from the mid 70s – the rare self-titled set for Four Levels Of Existence! The lyrics are Greek, so we can't speak for the songwriting on the narrative tip, but the sound is excellent – with fuzzed out guitars and some wiry ... (Rock) read more CD

✨✧ Eddie HigginsIf Dreams Come True (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2004. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Warm, late nite work from the Eddie Higgins trio – that great 90s lineup that features Eddie on piano, Jay Leonhart on bass, and Joe Ascione on drums! It's hard to adequately get at the genius of these guys together in words – as their power is somewhat subtle, but damn effective ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Higgins TrioHaunted Heart (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 1997. New Copy (reissue)... $56.99
Part of the late 90s rise to genius from pianist Eddie Higgins – a set of simple, lyrical beauty that really holds up well over the years – one of those classics that were cut away from the age of the classics – the sort of record that Eddie should have been making many decades ...

Venus (Japan), 1998. New Copy (reissue)... $56.99
There's plenty of love in the tones of Steve Kuhn's piano here – that deeply expressive sound that we first came to love in his earliest years, matured beautifully in the subtle setting of a straight trio date like this – with help from Buster Williams on bass and Bill Stewart on drums! ...

Venus (Japan), 1995. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Beautiful hollow body guitar lines from Russell Malone – one of those players who emerged in the 90s to reclaim a traditional approach to jazz guitar! Malone's got a clean, clear tone that's totally great – ringing out in ways that echo some of our favorite jazz guitarists of the 50s ... (Jazz) read more CD

Spiritual work from the great Charles Moffett and his talented family – all of whom have matured nicely by the time of this recording!

George OhtsukaMaracaibo Cornpone ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1978. Used ... $24.99
A cool 70s set from Japanese drummer George Otsuka – much more fusion-based than his work of the 60s, with some great help from an assortment of American and Japanese players! Many tunes have an angular, searching sort of feel – but there's also a nice dose of funk too, choppier ... (Jazz) read more CD

Venus (Japan), 2001. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful ballads from Archie Shepp – one of his later dates for Venus Records, recorded with a soulful, subtle sound that's totally great! The Shepp heard here is hardly the freewheeling player of 60s avant years – and is instead an aging master of the tenor who manages to draw on ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

A great little set from Barney Wilen's late revival period – strong, solid blowing all the way through – with a depth that almost matches his classics from the early days!
