Various

Afrotronic 2
Audiopharm (UK), 2002. Used 2CD
An overstuffed box of tasty grooves – filled with 2CDs worth of recent tracks inspired by a wealth of global grooves! The set list includes a number of hard to find singles and import tracks, plus a few numbers exclusive to the set. The sound here isn't totally in the Fela mode – and ... CD (New Grooves CD)

Collins Kids

Rockin'est
Columbia/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s. Used
A killer collection from one of the coolest rockin acts of the 50s – a pair of younger kids, but who work together with a fire and frenzy that honestly beats most of the bigger rockabilly acts of the time! The Collins Kids are the stuff of legend – the kind of act that could hardly ... CD (Rock CD)
DIW (Japan), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy
The cover looks a bit punk rock, but the music here is all jazz – pulled from the great catalog of DIW Records – the groundbreaking imprint of Japan's Disk Union record stores! Back at the end of the 80s, the company really started to put its money where its heart was – and ... CD (Jazz CD)
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. Used
Funky genius from Lou Donaldson – one of his first funky albums for Blue Note, and a real killer all the way through! The album has a great young group working with Lou – players that include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Lonnie Smith on organ, Leo Morris (aka Idris Muhammed) on drums, ... CD (Jazz CD)
Blue Note (Japan), 1962. Used
One of Stanley Turrentine's best albums ever – but a record that was recorded in 1962, yet only released by Blue Note 20 years later! The set's a great example of the sheer raw power that Stan had in his tone before it got watered down by his pop-jazz recordings of the later 60s – a ... CD (Jazz CD)

Tony Allen

Source
Blue Note, 2017. Used
One of the coolest records in years from the legendary Tony Allen – and that's saying a lot, given that his legacy includes famous work as a drummer with Fela Kuti, and a much more recent run of very experimental recordings! This set has Tony soaring out on Blue Note – and working with ... CD (Global Grooves CD)

Iron Maiden

Iron Maiden
Capitol, 1980. Used
CD (Rock CD)
Bear Family (Germany), 1953/1954. Used

Duke Robillard

Dangerous Place
Pointblank, 1997. Used
CD (Blues CD)

Art Blakey

Caravan
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+
One of the best non-Blue Note sessions from Art Blakey in the 60s – a really searing set that features the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers – a group that's filled with legends who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Reggie Workman ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Columbia/FTG, 1981. Used
A black tie affair, but a set that's still got all the great vocal touches of The Manhattans firmly in place – thanks to careful Chicago production from Leo Graham and arranger James Mack! The set's smooth, but never in a sloppily commercial way – and instead, the pair find a way to ... CD (Soul CD)
Big World, 1980s. Used
CD (Jazz CD)

Dave Holland

Prism
Dare 2, 2013. Used
CD (Jazz CD)

Dave Pike

Manhattan Latin
Verve, 1964. Used
A real lost chapter in the career of vibist Dave Pike – an obscure one-off Latin session recorded for Decca in the mid 60s! The album was done in the years between Pike's first few early jazz sides and his later tripped-out sessions for MPS and Vortex – and features Dave leading a ... CD (Jazz CD)

Taste Of Honey

Beauty & The Boogie
EMI, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
CD (Soul CD)
Spoon/Mute, 1973. Used
The historic album by Can – capping off their classic early 70s trilogy that includes Tago Mago and Ege Bamyasi – and the last one with Damo Suzuki in the line up! While very similar to Ege Bamyasi, Future Days takes a step away from their more experimental sounds and has more of the ... CD (Rock CD)

Gap Band

Testimony
Lalique, 1994. Used
CD (Soul CD)

Doobie Brothers

Best Of The Doobies
Warner, 1970s. Used
CD (Rock CD)
Raven (Australia), 1972/1973. Used
Preludes, a million-seller, but also a record that no home should be without – and easily one of THE greatest keyboard albums of the 70s! The album's the one that features Deodato's remake of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" into the funky "2001" – soaring with Fender ... CD (Jazz CD)
Impulse, 1973/1974. Used
Amazing work from Marion Brown – two albums we'd never be without! Geechee Recollections is quite possibly our favorite record ever from reedman Brown – and very different than both his seminal 60s recordings, and his European sides from later years! There's a really earthy feel to ... CD (Jazz CD)
Dagored (Italy), 1965. Used
A very groovy early soundtrack by Morricone! This one's earlier than many of the reissues we've been stocking – and it's got a groovy sound that's made even groovier by some fab vocal work by I Cantori Moderni, a hip vocalese group that's kind of the Italian version of The Swingle Singers. ... CD (Soundtracks CD)
Charlie Parker/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1961. Used
Great music from jazz guitarist Mundell Lowe – a set that was originally written as the soundtrack for an early 60s sexploitation film, Satin In High Heels – but which works equally well as a jazz album on its own! Lowe's in a slightly different setting than on some of his earlier ... CD (Jazz CD)

Von Freeman

Lester Leaps In
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1992. Used
A fitting title, as there's plenty of Lester Young nestled down there deeply in the horn of Von Freeman – yet given that the album was recorded during Von's 70th year on this planet, there's also a hell of a lot of his own sound there too! Freeman's one of those talents that we're especially ... CD (Jazz CD)

Captain Beefheart

Trout Mask Replica
Reprise, 1969. Used
A seminal moment in leftfield music – maybe the crowning achievement of Captain Beefheart, and a landmark collaboration with Frank Zappa as well! Zappa produced, and gave the group plenty of room to stretch out on this double-length set done for his Bizarre Records imprint – which ... CD (Rock CD)

Herbie Hancock

Magic Windows
Columbia (France), 1981. Used
A great little soul album from Herbie Hancock – but one that's often lost in the valleys between his bigger hits of the time! The record was cut in the space right before Herbie's big "Rockit" success – and it's a sweet bit of funky fusion that has a good dose of R&B in ... CD (Jazz CD)

Junior Mance

Junior's Blues
Riverside/OJC, 1963. Used
Trio side with Bob Cranshaw and Mickey Roker. Soul jazz piano stuff, with a few nice originals like "Cracklin" and "Down the Line". CD (Jazz CD)

Jack McDuff

Screamin'
Prestige/OJC, 1962. Used
A real killer from Brother Jack McDuff – one of his first truly great albums, and a record that has him breaking from the sleepier R&B organ sound of the 50s – into the leaner, cleaner mode of the 60s! The album's one of the first to have him playing with the incredible drummer Joe ... CD (Jazz CD)
Prestige, 1972/1973. Used
Late work by Sonny Stitt on Prestige – 2 albums with a really great feel! Going Down Slow has Sonny hitting a groove that's a bit more laidback than some of his funkier albums for Prestige, but one that's still pretty darn great overall! The sound is almost in a Stanley Turrentine mode at ... CD (Jazz CD)

Hank Crawford

Midnight Ramble
Milestone, 1982. Used
With Dr John on organ, Calvin Newborn on guitar, and Bernard Purdie on drums – and Hank even plays a bit of electric piano too! CD (Jazz CD)
Columbia, 1970s/1980s. Used 2 CDs
CD (Rock CD)
Pablo, 1983. Used
CD (Jazz CD)
Blue Note, 1970. Used
A great lost album by John Patton – recorded in 1970, but not ever issued until 1995! The record was most likely held back because it's one of the funky organist's most far-reaching – a stunning batch of modal tracks that moves way past the usual organ sound, and much more into Larry ... CD (Jazz CD)

Michel Petrucciani

Playground
Blue Note, 1991. Used
A sweet mix of electric and acoustic modes – and a set that still has Michel Petrucciani spinning out those long, warm piano lines that brought him to global attention in the 80s! Adam Holzman adds some electric keys alongside Michel's work on Steinway – which rings out with a rich ... CD (Jazz CD)

Budd Johnson

Let's Swing
Prestige/Swingville/OJC, 1960. Used
Let's Swing – and swing Budd does, in that wonderfully easy-going manner of his – a style that seems almost effortless at times, but which always comes across with plenty of soul! Johnson's tenor is a great fit for the style of Prestige's Swingville label – as he has plenty of ... CD (Jazz CD)

Sonny Stitt & Jack McDuff

Stitt Meets Brother Jack
Prestige/OJC, 1962. Used
An album that was more famously issued under the title Nuther Fu'ther – and which features Stitt & McDuff in a very tasty set of ortan/tenor grooves, played with that style that Prestige was finally beginning to perfect in the early 60s, as it let these organ combos shake off their 50's ... CD (Jazz CD)
De-Lite/Mercury, 1978. Used
Way more than "top hits" from Kool & The Gang – as the classic package focuses on material from their funkiest years – that great early De-Lite period of the early and mid 70s! There's a lot more funk here than hits – and the titles show Kool & The Gang evolving ... CD (Soul CD)
Flying Dutchman/Bluebird, 1973. Used
One of Lonnie Liston Smith's most spiritual sessions, and the record that most clearly shows his roots with Pharoah Sanders! The vibe here is much more jazz-based than on some of Lonnie's other records for Flying Dutchman – with Smith playing as much acoustic piano as he does electric, using ... CD (Jazz CD)

Terry Gibbs Dream Band

Flying Home Vol 3
Contemporary, 1959. Used
CD (Jazz CD)
Columbia, 1957/1963. Used
CD (Jazz CD)

Yusef Lateef

Psychicemotus
Impulse/Verve, 1965. Used
A very unusual album for Yusef Lateef – and that's saying quite a lot, given how quirky most of his work can be! The session has Lateef exploring both rootsy and modern modes – working in a unique quartet that features George Arvanitas on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and legendary ... CD (Jazz CD)

Brownmark

Good Feeling
Motown, 1989. Used
CD (Soul CD)

Aretha Franklin

Queen Of Soul (4CD set)
Atlantic/Rhino, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 4 CDs
A legendary legacy of soul – served up by a singer who definitely earns the title of "Queen" stated on the cover! The music here comes from a period that just about everyone deems as Aretha Franklin's best – her seminal years at Atlantic Records, where she made an important ... CD (Soul CD)

Albert Mangelsdorff

Tension
CBS/Bellaphon (Germany), 1963. Used
Incredible early work from one of Germany's greatest modernists – one of the key records that showed the world that German jazz was way more than just a rehashing of American modes in the postwar years! This rare 1963 recording features the quintet of trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff – a ... CD (Jazz CD)

Mal Waldron

Quadrologue At Utopia
Tutu (Germany), 1989. Used
CD (Jazz CD)

Max Roach

Jazz In 3/4 Time
EmArcy/Verve, 1956. Used
A great little album from Max Roach – one that has him finding a whole new voice in jazz! The set was recorded on the heels of Max's time with Clifford Brown – and it's a great little album that has him bouncing back nicely from the loss by moving into a new realm that shows off his ... CD (Jazz CD)
Soul Note (Italy), 1979. Used 2 CDs
Historic Concerts indeed – as the meeting of Max and Cecil Taylor must have been quite an event! As he did on other late 70s sessions – particularly those with Archie Shepp and Anthony Braxton – Max proves that he's quite willing to experiment, and works beautifully in the spare, ... CD (Jazz CD)

Joe McPhee Po Music

Topology
Hat Art, 1981. Used
One of the classic Hat Art sets from the early 80s, and a great recording by McPhee with a group that boasts Radu Malfatti, Irene Schweizer, Raymond Boni, Pierre Favre, and Andre Jaume. The set includes a great remake of Mingus' "Pithecanthropus Erectus", plus the extended title cut, and ... CD (Jazz CD)
Plaza, 1970s/Early 80s. Used
Slamming funky club from the 70s – as Kenny Dope re-presents some of the best tracks ever by Randy Muller – the creative genius behind BT Express, Brass Construction, and Skyy! Back in the day, Randy had a way of laying the horns alongside the bassline that was totally unique – ... CD (Funky Compilations CD)
Blue Note, 1960. Used
Simply astounding! Soul Station is a deceptively simple album that has tenor giant Hank Mobley playing standards and originals in a quartet with Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Blakey on drums– a spare and simple group, but one with a direct energy that's really amazing ... CD (Jazz CD)
