FMP (Germany), 1970. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Balls is right – as that's certainly what the powerhouse sax of Peter Brotzmann had on this early session!

Prestige, 1972. Sealed ... $13.99
Sweet electric grooving from Houston Person – an album that features his soulful tenor set in larger arrangements than on his earlier small combo Prestige sessions, in a mode that's a bit like some of the larger jazz sets coming out on CTI and Kudu at the time!

Hip 70s work from Stan Kenton – a set recorded live in the UK in 1972, in the best modern style he was using at the time!
