Favorite Time
Teichiku (Japan), 1976. Near Mint-
A soulful, almost spiritual set at points – with Mukai on trombone, Kazumi Watanabe on guitar, and Fumio Itabashi on piano! Titles include "Impressions", "Afro Blue", "Old Folks", and "Stella By Starlight". LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Lattimore Brown
Sound Stage 7/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. Near Mint-
Sound Stage Seven recordings from Lattimore Brown – a heck of a great southern soul singer from the 60s, but one who almost never gets his due in the history books! Lattimore's got a raspy quality to his voice that's very much in the Bobby Blue Bland camp – but the backings he gets on ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)
European Episode
CAM (Italy), 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
Pretty modern work from Konitz – recorded in Rome in 1968, with a French rhythm section of Martial Solal on piano, Henry Texier on bass, and Daniel Humair on drums. The presence of Solal especially gives the session an edge – as Kontiz drifts into Solal's moody, introspective mode of ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Cymbalism
Prestige, 1963. New Copy (reissue)
A cracker of an album – as fresh today as it was when it was first released in 1963! Roy Haynes is probably best known to the world for his bop work, but in the early 60s, he was a budding modernist with a real sense for lyrical improvisation. As part of a generation that was working on ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Quarteto Em Cy Maior
Elenco (Brazil), 1968. Near Mint-
One of the greatest early albums by this lovely female harmony quartet from Brazil – a sublime blend of bossa rhythms and lightly floating vocals – all handled with the incredible flair of the Elenco label at the time! Oscar Castro Neves arranged the material, and the girls do a great ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil LP)
Jazz Composers Workshop
Savoy, 1954. Near Mint-
A classic session of modernist jazz – and some of Mingus most groundbreaking early work! The album was recorded for Savoy with 2 different groups – one's got Mingus leading John LaPorta on alto, Teo Macero on tenor, and Mal Waldron on piano, and the other group's a quartet with Macero, ...

7-inch, Vinyl record (Funky 45's 7-inch)
Paisley Park/Warner, 1986. Very Good
Classic! Although folks had been saying for years that Prince was funky, "Kiss" was the first tune to really have him going to town on the instruments – in a way that we always expect from a true funk act, but not so much for the pop charts – reason alone to adore this one! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record (Funky 45's 7-inch)
Between 10th & 11th
Situation Two (UK), 1992. Very Good+
LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Collaboration West (ilustrated cover)
Prestige, 1953. Near Mint-
Great vibes from the legendary Teddy Charles – a set that brings together some of his best early moments for Prestige Records!

Mootrey's, 1973. Very Good+
7-inch, Vinyl record (Funky 45's 7-inch)
Vogue (France), 1953. Near Mint-
A beautiful bit of modern jazz from one of the hippest French pianists of the postwar scene – and a set that also features wonderful versions of songs by Gigi Gryce – with a quintet that includes Bobby Jaspar on tenor and Jimmy Gourley on guitar! LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Gold Meyn, 1985. Near Mint-
7-inch, Vinyl record (Funky 45's 7-inch)
Jazz West/Liberty (Japan), 1956. Near Mint-
Given that Pepper was on and off the LA scene a fair bit in the 50s – due to personal trouble and legal battles – this album's not so much "the return", as it is one of Pepper's many strong steps back into the studio, a place in which he demonstrated an uncanny ability to ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
After The Bridge
RCA (Japan), 1964. Near Mint- 2LP
Rare work from the RCA years of Sonny Rollins – all recorded during the time of his groundbreaking albums for the label in the early 60s, but never issued until this much later Japanese package! The title is quite apt – as the whole set really shows the development that Rollins brought ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Secret Wish
Island, 1985. Very Good+
One of the great lost moments in the career of Trevor Horn – and the only real full album from Propaganda! The group have an approach that has bits of the Art of Noise love of sound texture, and which also seems to borrow a bit from the German electronics of the early 80s – but fuses ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Simmons, 1970s. Near Mint-
7-inch, Vinyl record (Funky 45's 7-inch)
Lullaby
Baystate (Japan), 1982. Near Mint-
Nothing sleepy here – and instead, a nice little piano trio session from Kenny Drew – one of his great later dates for the Japanese Baystate label from the 80s! There's a subtle, lyrical groove at play – that well-rounded sound that Drew developed strongly in his later years ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Epic, 1978. Very Good+

Surrealistic Pillow
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
Early genius from these Bay Area stalwarts – one of the greatest rock records of its time!

LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
De Nuevo
Vaya, 1985. Sealed
It's hard to stop the duo of Celiz Cruz and Johnny Pacheco at this point in their careers – as the two Latin legends really seem to have found a perfect way to work together – at a level that makes their albums together some of the high points of their later careers! Johnny's groove is ... LP, Vinyl record album (Latin LP)
Clef, 1950. Very Good (pic cover)
Titles include "Lover", "Stella By Starlight", "Temptation", and "Autumn In New York". 7-inch, Vinyl record (Funky 45's 7-inch)
Presence
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Overlooked genius from Led Zeppelin – an album that was missed by many the first time around, because of it's tight focus and simplicity! For the set, the group step back just a bit from their more stylistically sprawling tendencies – almost as if they got some of the more ambitious ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Royal Garden Blues
CBS, 1986. Very Good+
LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

El Gran Combo 5
EGC, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Not the 5th album from El Gran Combo – they'd actually released way more records than than by this time – but a great 70s cooker from this famous Latin group! Tracks have a nice sense of power throughout – bright horns on the top, and bold rhythms that show the combo were digging ... LP, Vinyl record album (Latin LP)
Fafasifa
CBS (France), Late 60s. Used
Wild stuff! This fantastic LP features the great French modernist piano player Martial Solal playing on a number of cuts that feature straight piano, electric piano, organ, and Clavecin. The sound is fantastic, and is a groovy mix of hard piano tracks, spacey modern ones, and wild avant garde ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Capitol, 1979. Used
Sublime work from Frankie Beverly and Maze – smooth, mellow, and perfectly put together, with a level of care and class that you'd be hard pressed to find in many of the group's contemporaries! The album's not one of the group's most famous, but that makes it even more of a treat, as you'll ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul LP)

Never Let It End
MPS (Germany), 1970. Used Gatefold
Amazing work from the MPS scene of the early 70s – one of the more avant records recorded for the label at the time, thanks to the forward-thinking talents of trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff! Albert's beautifully balanced here – reaching for some of the freedom around him on the German ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Winds Of Barcelona
Sony (Japan), 1969. Used Gatefold
Groovy guitar work from Yoshiaki Masuo – working here in a sweetly chromatic style with hip small combo backing! Yoshiaki's got echoes of 60s work from George Benson or Wes Montgomery – a sound that's clean, but which has great colors billowing out nicely from the edges – a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Arizona
Columbia, 1970. Used
Wonderful solo work from this ex-Raider – an album that's almost to Mark Lindsay's career what Scott Walker's post-Brothers albums were to his! Lindsay really reinvents himself here – stepping out with a mature mix of jazz vocals, pop stylings, and more – all of which take him ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
