Masterpieces By Ellington (with bonus tracks)
Columbia/Legacy, 1950. Used
True masterpieces from Duke Ellington – some of his greatest compositions, presented here in an early Columbia LP that offers up "uncut concert arrangements" – clearly grooming a new side of Duke for the long-playing audience! The recordings were made in 1950, with players ... CD (Jazz)
RCA (France), 1958. Used 2 CDs
Seminal work from Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers – recorded at a time when that group was really coming together!

Sassy Soul Strut
Blue Note (Japan), 1973. Used
Plenty of sass, and plenty of soul – a great mix of modes from the mighty Lou Donaldson! The set has Lou expanding his sound a bit from the harder funk of Blue Note dates from a few years before – working with arranger George Butler, who gives the record a cool electric vibe – ... CD (Jazz)

Prestige, 1973/1974. Used
Two late Rusty Bryant albums – back to back on one CD! For the Good Times was one of Rusty's last for Prestige – recorded with a lineup that includes Hank Jones on electric piano, and Joe Beck on guitar. The album's not as over the top funky as his earlier ones for the label – ... CD (Jazz)
Whims Of Chambers
Blue Note, 1956. Used
One of the few great records that Paul Chambers made as a leader, and a haunting set of somber hardbop recorded with Horace Silver, Donald Byrd, Kenny Burrell, and John Coltrane. The writing is great, and the group has a nice dark edge that gives the session a slightly different sound than other ... CD (Jazz)
