Zulu/Katalyst, 1968. Used ... $7.99

✨✧ Yusef LateefSounds Of Yusef ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A beautifully haunting set by Yusef that marked his move to Prestige, and a sophistication of the Eastern-tinged jazz style that he developed during his years with Savoy. The tracks on here feature Yusef playing tenor, flute, and argol – with backing by a group of Detroit musicians that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Dutchman, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $299.99
An incredible album – one of the few rare early sides cut by pianist Horace Tapscott, a seminal figure in the LA underground of the 60s and 70s!

An excellent set of groovy Latin-tinged tunes – and one of the rarest records on Prestige from the 60s!

Prestige, 1955. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the nicest moments from Milt Jackson in the 50s – an open-ended blowing session cut with Miles Davis, in a mode that's even better than Jackson's work for Savoy at the time! The style is very much in the key Davis mode on Prestige – with Jackie McLean in the group on alto sax, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1965. Very Good+ ... $39.99
One of Bobby Hutcherson's most important albums ever – and an essential piece of "new thing" jazz that ranks up there with such key Blue note sessions of the genre as Tony Williams' album Life Time, Dolphy's Out To Lunch, and Jackie McLean's One Step Beyond!

Prestige, 1970. Very Good+ ... $59.99
Massive funkiness!

Atlantic, 1967. Very Good+ ... $34.99
One of Elvin Jones' greatest records – a set that's quite different from both his work in the John Coltrane Quartet, and some of the powerhouse jazz sides he'd cut later as a solo act!

Black Jazz, 1972. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Plenty of spirit, and plenty of soul – a 70s classic from organist Doug Carn, and a record that took his instrument, and jazz in general, to a whole new level for the decade!

Straight-ahead trio material from Wynton Kelly – played with Jimmy Cobbs on drums, and either Sam Jones or Paul Chambers on bass.

Blue Note, 1968. Used ... $9.99
The quintessential sound of late 60s Horace Silver – on one hand still very much in the Blue Note soul jazz groove that earned him plenty of jukebox single play, but on the other hand really stretching out with a style that's a bit more righteous than before!

Prestige, 1963. Very Good+ ... $39.99

Prestige, 1962. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Stitt & McDuff in a very tasty set of organ/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 R&B sound, and start to hit a straighter jazz groove.

A warmly melodic session from Blue Note's greatest guitarist!
