Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1963. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible, and oft-overlooked album from the great Benny Golson – and one of the few early albums that really point the way to his huge run of work for decades to come! The style here is a bit looser, and more open than some of Golson's previous albums – less of a focus on ... read more CD

A classic Emarcy album that has a good portion of the label's jazz stars – including Clark Terry, Max Roach, Junior Mance, Dinah Washington, and Maynard Ferguson – all playing live in the studio, in a freer, Verve-ish kind of jam session that was not typical of the label's usual work. ... read more CD

Fantastic work by this obscure LA legend!

"New York is now" – a pretty bold statement from saxophonist Ornette Coleman, but one that definitely shows his shift in role – from a major force on the LA underground of the early 60s, to an artist who was helping pave the way for a huge wave of growth on the New York ... read more CD
