✨✧ Eric AlexanderGentle Ballads (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2004. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

Venus (Japan), 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great installment in this long-running series from tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander – a player who also picks up a bit of alto on the record too! As with the previous volumes, this is way more than just a set of sleepy ballads – as the presentation is way more than "gentle" ... (Jazz) read more CD

Eric AlexanderMy Favorite Things (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Venus (Japan), 2007. New Copy (reissue)... $54.99 59.99
A fitting title for this one – because Eric Alexander is one of our favorite things in jazz – and albums like this are the reason why!

Stanley Cowell TrioDancers In Love ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2001. Used ... $19.99
A surprisingly wonderful recent album from Stanley Cowell – soul jazz piano of the 70s, but sounding equally great here in his later years!

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!

Venus (Japan), 2001. Used Gatefold ... $26.99

If that's the dead princess on the cover, we sure hope they put some clothes on her before the funeral!

Steve KuhnWaltz Red Side ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2002. Used ... $19.99
They had us at "waltz" with this one – because the combination of Steve Kuhn's inherent groove and the loping rhythms of the style always fit beautifully together – kind of a subtle return to the modal elements that first made Kuhn's music so wonderful back in the 60s and 70s! ...
