70's issue of one of the Donald Byrd/Pepper Adams sessions for the Warwick label, from the early 60's. The groove is nice and hard, with a very tight, very in-the-pocket sort of sound.

✨✧ Duke EllingtonWill Big Bands Ever Come Back? ... LP
Reprise, 1962. Very Good- ... $1.99
The question in the title is almost a moot point – because with the quality of a record like this, we hardly care if other bands come back at all!

Beautifully joyous work from Myra Melford – a set recorded early in the career of the pianist, with her first trio – and abristle with sound that really grabs us right from the start!

Atlantic, 1963. Very Good- ... $1.99

Verve, 1968. Very Good- ... $8.99
Solo work by Bill Evans – recorded in 1968, at a time when he was increasingly exploring gentleness in his work!

Reprise, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
One of Sinatra's greatest records ever – pure genius all the way through! Frank's backed here by the orchestra of Count Basie, with some incredible arrangements by Quincy Jones that really have a jazzy, syncopated kick to them.

Capitol, 1955. Very Good- ... $0.99
A masterpiece – and possibly the greatest record ever by the Four Freshmen!

Embryo, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $0.99
One of Herbie Mann's biggest albums – and one of his funkiest too!

One of the biggest hits ever for Weather Report – thanks to Joe Zawinul's leadoff track "Birdland" – one of those tunes that entered the canon immediately, and saw countless covers pop up over the years – kind of a rare thing for a jazz tune at this point in time!

Cadet, 1972. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the most amazing, expansive albums ever recorded by Brother Jack McDuff – a session that we'd rank right up there with his classic Moon Rappin for Blue Note – and which has an equally stretched out feel!

Judson, 1957. Very Good ... $24.99
One of a number of mid 50s albums that Kenny recorded to showcase the work of assorted 20th century composers – and like all of them, a spare and thoughtful set, recorded with only bass by Wilbur Ware as accompaniment!

Blue Note, 1964. Very Good ... $39.99
An unusual set for both Dexter and Blue Note – first, because the set was recorded in Europe (not at Rudy Van Gelder's), and second because the tracks are all quite long! The album was recorded in Paris – and is cut in an open-ended format that's very much in the mode that Gordon would ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Great work from one of the hippest jazz contemporaries of the late 60s – trumpeter Kenny Dorham, a player who was really coming into his own by the time of this album! The record has Kenny with a nice sort of edge – not as boldly experimental as his 60s work for Blue Note, but ... read more CD
