Miroslav Vitous

Guardian Angels
Evidence, 1993. Used
Bassist Miroslav Vitous is in some really great company here – recording in Tokyo, but with a mixed group of Japanese and American players – a fantastically dynamic lineup that includes Kenny Kirkland on Fender Rhodes and piano, John Scofield on guitar, Mabumi Yamagumi on soprano sax, ... CD (Jazz CD)

Horace Silver

Silver's Blue
Epic/Legacy, 1956. Used
Killer early work from Horace Silver – and a rare non-Blue Note session from the 50s! The album's Horace's only date for Columbia, and it's got a feel that's similar to some of the Jazz Messengers' hardbop recordings for the label at the time – cooking with a soulful intensity at the ... CD (Jazz CD)

John Lee Hooker

Endless Boogie
ABC/Universal, 1970. Used
A hip mix of raunchy blues and rootsy rock – all stretched out over a double-length set that's easily one of John Lee Hooker's loosest albums ever! The album has Hooker playing in a number of settings with hip rock and funk players from the California scene – including Steve Miller, ... CD (Blues CD)

Horace Silver

Silver's Serenade
Blue Note, 1963. Used
A bit less well-known than some of the real Horace Silver classics on Blue Note – but an incredible record that shows the Silver Quintet at all its lyrical best! The record is a masterpiece of original voicings from Horace – not just in the unique tunes he penned for the set, but also ... CD (Jazz CD)

Branford Marsalis

Dark Keys
Columbia, 1996. Used
A trio date with Marsalis on tenor and soprano sax, Reginald Veal on bass, and Jeff 'Tain' Watts on drums – plus guest saxophone from Joe Lovano and Kenny Garrett. CD (Jazz CD)
CTI, 1971. Used
A massive groover from the great Johnny Hammond – the famous 60s organist from the soul jazz scene, getting a whole new sound for the 70s here on the CTI label! Johnny was always one of those players who was ready to try something new – and the open, extended format of the label really ... CD (Jazz CD)

Peter Lang

Flying Fish, 1975. Very Good+
(Cover has a cut corner and light wear, but looks great overall.) LP, Vinyl record album (Folk/Country LP)

Mighty Joe Young

Mighty Man
Blind Pig, 1997. Used
(Out of print, punch through barcode.) CD (Blues CD)
Atco, 1976. Used
Life after Peter Gabriel – with Phil Collins doing a surprisingly great job on vocals – free from all the tripe of later years! The group are still very much in the mode of their early prog years, but balance things out with a few catchier tunes – a mode that's a bit like the ... CD (Rock CD)
K7 (Germany), 1999. Used
(Out of print – still sealed!) CD (New Grooves CD)


Sire, 1980. Used
One of the greatest mainstream rock and roll debuts of all time – and a record that still blows away just about any other later work by The Pretenders! The set's got this raw, sneering power that's neither punk, nor new wave – but which seems to be very much of that moment – a ... CD (Rock CD)
RCA, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
Great work from this group who always seemed even better live than in the studio – with Jack Casady on bass, Jorma Kaukonen on guitar and vocals, Will Scarlett on harmonica, Sammy Piazza on drums, and Papa John Creach on violin! LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Hi Infidelity
Epic, 1980. Very Good+

Horace Silver

It's Got To Be Funky
Columbia, 1993. Used
Cool later work from Horace Silver – with some nicely complicated horn parts that remind us of his hip Blue Note projects of the 70s! Features a bit of vocals from Andy Bey – and horn solos from Red Holloway and Eddie Harris! CD (Jazz CD)

Four Tops

Casablanca, 1981. Very Good+
A surprisingly great set from The Four Tops – hardly the throwaway effort you might expect from some of the other Casablanca projects of the time – and instead a really solid effort that follows strongly from the sound of the group's best moments during their ABC Records years! The ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)


BT Puppy, Late 60s. Very Good+
Titles include "I Believe In Nothing", "That Cold Feeling", "Every Year About This Time", "When The Summer Is Through", and "Down Down Down". LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Columbia, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2 CDs
How can we even begin to describe the genius of Lambert Hendricks and Ross? The group was a jazz vocal supergroup that merged three talents that had already made a big name in the bebop vocalese field – Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks, and the lovely Annie Ross – and the project was an ... CD (Vocalists CD)

John Scofield & Pat Metheny

I Can See Your House From Here
Blue Note, 1994. Used
A tremendous pairing of guitarists – both musicians who first helped change the sound of the instrument in jazz during the 70s, and who somehow come together here at a level that not only brings out the best in both, but also seems to evolve the music too! Scofield and Metheny are masters of ... CD (Jazz CD)

Claus Ogerman featuring Jan Akkerman

Jazzman, 1978. Very Good+
Claus Ogerman-listed version of one of the most sensitive 70s albums from guitarist Jan Akkerman – a set recorded with larger backings from Claus, who really helps Jan find a newly mellow side of his sound! Gone are some of the too-jamming, rock-inspired modes of Akkerman's other records ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Roberta Flack

Atlantic, 1994. Used
(Out of print.) CD (Soul CD)

Maria Bethania

Philips (Brazil), 1981. Very Good+
Maria Bethania's warmed her sound up a fair bit here from earlier releases – and is hitting the same blend of jazz overtones and larger arrangements used during the same period by Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa – both of whom were maturing at a similar pace! There's still a fair bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil LP)


Suzume Park
Sunshine Enterprises (Austria), 2004. Used
Hi Hat, 1964. Used
Fantastic Stan Getz material from the 60s – a beautiful live set recorded right around the same time as Stan's Getz-A-Go-Go album – and, like that one, also features great vibes from Gary Burton and a bit of guest vocals from Astrud Gilberto! The main focus is on Stan's core sound with ... CD (Jazz CD)

Charles Fold & The Charles Fold Singers

Savoy, 1985. Very Good+ 2LP
LP, Vinyl record album (Gospel LP)

Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+
(Maroon label stereo pressing with deep groove – FR2/FR3. Cover has light wear and a name in marker.) LP, Vinyl record album (Classical LP)
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+
A heck of a great little record – one that shouldn't work so well, but it does! For the set, Sonny Stitt's blowing in front of a larger brass section – and while the prospect of a Sonny Stitt big band record might not sound that great at first, this one really kicks, largely because of ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
F Communications/Chipie, 1997. Used
(Out of print. Digipak has light wear.) CD (New Grooves CD)

Fleetwood Mac

Greatest Hits
Warner, 1970s/1980s. Used

Alligator, 1978. Very Good+
(Green label pressing. Cover has a cut corner.) LP, Vinyl record album (Blues LP)

Joe Jackson

Big World
A&M, 1986. Very Good+ 2LP
A well-recorded set that shows Joe Jackson really grabbing command of his overall sound – initially issued as a 3-sided record to fit all the music in one package! LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Electric Flag

Band Kept Playing
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+
Electric Flag keep on playing – a statement that hardly needs to be made, when you've got a group lineup as strong as this! The album's a bit later in the combo's vintage, but actually seems to have the individual members finding more focus in the company of each other than they might have ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Def Leppard

Mercury, 1983. Used
A huge breakout album for Def Leppard – and a record that maybe set the style for so many other mainstream hard rock acts in the mid 80s – thanks to a mix of crisp drums, searing guitars, and screaming vocals with an anthemic feel that really sends things over the top! And sure, it's ... CD (Rock CD)

Van Morrison

Tupelo Honey
Warner, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
Titles include "Wild Night", "Like A Cannonball", "Old Old Woodstock", "Tupelo Honey", "When That Evening Sun Goes Down", and "Moonshine Whiskey". LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Karla Bonoff

Karla Bonoff
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+
(Cover has a divot on the top seam, but looks great otherwise.) LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Atlantic/Rhino, 1968. Used
It's the late 60s, and Eddie's creating his famous electrified Varitone sound – unique among other soul jazz players in that it actually added a lot to Eddie's work, instead of detracted from it (as with some other boppers who briefly picked up the instrument.) The Varitone's cool flat tone ... CD (Jazz CD)

Kenny G

Arista, 1986. Very Good+
With Alan Glass, Corrado Rustici, and John Raymond on guitar; Joe Plass and Randy Jackson on bass, Gigi Conaway and Kenny McDougald on drums, and Tony Gable on percussion. LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Luaka Bop (Brazil), 2006. Used 2 CDs
The glorious return of Os Mutantes – a recent live performance that marks the group's first new album in many many years! The show was recorded before a very enthusiastic audience in London – at a time when the city was in the throes of a recent new wave of interest in Tropicalia ... CD (Brazil CD)


Compost 50
Compost (Germany), 2000. Used
Tracks by Rainer Truby Trio, A Forest Mighty Black, Fauna Flash, Beanfield, Move D, Taran, and more. CD (New Grooves CD)

Zuco 103

Outro Lado
Six Degrees, 2000. Used
Take two European musicians dreaming of warmer climes, throw in an actual Brazilian singer – and you've got a pretty decent blend of styles that comes off with a pretty soulful finish! The record features loads of keyboards and samples mixed with Brazilian percussion, peppered over the top ... CD (Brazil CD)

Bobby Hutcherson

Kicker (180 gram pressing)
Blue Note, 1963. New Copy Gatefold
One of the greatest lost sessions ever! Legendary vibist Bobby Hutcherson recorded this set of tracks in his early days with Blue Note – but the set's never come out until now, and its release is cause for rejoicing! The material shows Hutcherson playing in a straight-ahead format, tinged ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Robert Cray

Who's Been Talkin
Tomato, 1980. Very Good+
(Original Tomato pressing. Cover has light wear.) LP, Vinyl record album (Blues LP)
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
A sweet little set that definitely aims to stake out its own little territory – with a groove that lives up surprisingly well to the title! The music here is way funkier than you might expect – and comes from a time when many popular singers were working in studios staffed by cats who ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)

Lee Konitz

Real Lee Konitz
Atlantic/32 Jazz, 1957. Used
The title definitely gets it right – as this is the real sound of Lee Konitz – the kind of extra-special approach to alto sax that made Lee one of the true modern giants of the 50s, with an approach that nobody had ever heard before! The album captures Konitz at the height of his ... CD (Jazz CD)
