✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisUptown ... LP
King, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A nice little set that combines some of Eddie's rare work for King from the mid 50s! Eddie's tenor is in wonderful form here, working with a real sense of economy on the album's short tracks – a sense that you don't always get in some of his more stretched-out sets for Prestige. Backing on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1961. Very Good- ... $79.99
One of a number of Art Blakey albums titled after "Night In Tunisia" – and most likely the best! The tune is a perfect fit for the Blakey Jazz Messengers format – long, rhythmic, really stretching out, yet allowing plenty of space for the horn players to solo. Players ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Strata East, 1976. Near Mint- ... $19.99

RCA, 1957/1962. Sealed ... $36.99
Oh how we love this album – and we think it may well be the best album ever from Charles Mingus! The set was recorded in that magical Mingus year of 1957, but oddly not released until 1962 – missing some of the initial frenzy of his discovery during the Atlantic and Columbia years. ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

The rhythm section on the album features Mal Waldron on piano, Julian Euell on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Howard McGheeReturn Of Howard McGhee ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Good ... $14.99
Easily one of the best albums ever cut by this oft-overlooked bop trumpeter – and a clean, clear, no-nonsense session played with some great modern touches! The session really steps off from McGhee's earlier work nicely – and is noteworthy not only for Howard's great trumpet work, but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ropeadope, 2019. Used ... $6.99

ECM (Germany), 1971. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
