✨✧ Eddie AllenRemembrance ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
Eddie Allen was a relatively young trumpeter at the time of this date – but he's got some very solid grounding from a mature trio that features Kenny Barron on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Carl Allen on drums! On another label, like Muse, the set might have a rougher sort of feel – ... (Jazz) read more CD

Joe BeckStrangers In The Night ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1999. Used ... $11.99
Warm later work from guitarist Joe Beck – a sweet trio session that features George Mraz on bass and Billy Hart on drums! Beck's got a great sound on the record – a colorful tone that's quite fitting for the album's tribute to Frank Sinatra – certainly not the same sound as the ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Richie BeirachManhattan Reverie (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2006. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
There's a bit of reverie here, but it's usually the swinging kind instead of the sleepy variety – thanks to a well-formed groove from Richie Beirach on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Billy Hart on drums! The tunes certainly include a few ballads, but Richie usually takes them with a freely ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Francesco CafisoSeven Steps To Heaven ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great work by this youthful alto talent from Italy – a player with a tone that's every bit as classic as you might expect from the album's cover! Cafiso plays with an edge that's sharp, but a tone that's almost as deep as a tenor at times – really opening up on the longer tracks here, ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Bill CrowFrom Birdland To Broadway (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1995. Used ... Out Of Stock
Bassist Bill Crow is perhaps best known for his work in the Gerry Mulligan group of the 50s, but he also had a great revival moment in the 90s – thanks to a well-penned autobiography, and a few great sessions as a leader like this! The album's got the same title as Bill's life story, and it's ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Jack DeJohnetteTime & Space ... CD
Trio/Venus (Japan), 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare early date as a leader for drummer Jack DeJohnette – a set done for the Japanese Trio label, and with a vibe that's similar to Jack's wonderful records for Prestige! DeJohnette is not only one of the most inventive drummers in jazz at this point, he's also a musician who's willing to ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Kenny DorhamArrival Of Kenny Dorham ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Kenny Dorham's best records ever – and one of his rarest too! The set was cut for the short-lived Jaro label, home to a few great jazz sides during its short-lived American tenure – and the set features Kenny grooving at a level that's extremely tight, very much in the best ...

✨✧ Four Levels Of ExistenceFour Levels Of Existence ... CD
Venus/Lion, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Damn, these guys come on strong right from the start – a heady Greek quartet who got their one and only shot in the studio with this record – and who don't pull any punches in delivering the goods! The guitars are nice and raw – hard rock informed by psych, with tremendous solos ... (Rock) read more CD

✨✧ Grant Green JrJungle Strut ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1997. Used ... Out Of Stock
The younger Grant Green grooves in ways that would have made his pops proud – recording here in a sweet old school style that features Hammond from either Reuben Wilson or Michael Torsone, plus alto sax from the legendary Eddie Pazant! There's a warm, fluid groove to most tracks – one ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Al HaigAl Haig Quartet ... CD
Period/Venus (Japan), 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A near-lost session from pianist Al Haig – playing in an unusual (for him) format that features piano, guitar, bass, and drums! Haig's piano is recorded with a style that makes it a bit echoey – using the space of the studio in a way that seems to hang the notes in air a bit more, ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Roland HannaApres Un Reve ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
Shame about the cover, but cheescake nudie image aside, the album's got all the poise, class, and grace you'd expect in some other classics from pianist Roland Hanna – a player who already attained majesty in his music, long before he started adding "Sir" to his name! There's a ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Eddie HarrisFreedom Jazz Dance ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
Late work from Eddie Harris – but a great session too, and one that cooks with raw soulful energy that shows he was still at the top of his game! The date's a quartet session, with that spare, back-to-basics approach Eddie was using in the years after his bigger 70s fame – a great ... (Jazz) read more CD

Eddie HigginsIf Dreams Come True ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2004. Used ... $11.99
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 CD

✨✧ Eddie Higgins & Scott HamiltonSmoke Gets In Your Eyes ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
Scott Hamilton blows some wonderfully smokey tenor here – sounding great in the company of Eddie Higgins' trio! The date's got a really old school tenor sort of sound – echoes of Ben Webster and Lester Young, but updated too – taken to the clear, mature territory of Higgins' ... (Jazz) read more CD

Venus (Japan), 1997. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful trio work from Steve Kuhn – a player who really hit a new stride in his sound on these sessions for the Japanese Venus label!

Jaro/Venus (Japan), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful session cut by the obscure tenor player J.R.

Venus (Japan), 1992. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully majestic album by Pharoah – sort of a follow up to his Welcome To Love album of ballads and standards, but handled with a bit more of the expansive soul of some of his other recordings.

Lovely work from pianist Claude Williamson – a player we like so much more in his later years than we did when he first started out in the 50s!
