Zoot Sims / Live In Yamagata Vol. 2 [LP]
Continuation of Zoot's 1977 concert featuring Dave McKenna, Bucky Pizzarelli, Major Holley and Jake Hanna. (Other portion was released as Vol. 1) Relaxed, happy and inspired performance by the master of tenor saxophone! Very good stereo sound quality!

Stan Getz / Out Of Nowhere [LP]
Previously unreleased concert performances by Stan Getz! Contains three sessions recorded between 1958 and 1960 in Europe and features stellar sidemen including Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Ed Thigpen, Herb Ellis and Oscar Pettiford! Mono recording is of surprisingly good quality!
J.J. Johnson / In Sweden 1957 [CD]
J.J. Johnson / In Sweden 1957 [LP]
This album is a collection of several different recordings made by the legendary J.J. Johnson Quintet (with Bobby Jasper, Tommy Flanagan, Wilbur Little and Elvin Jones) in 1956 and 1957: A studio session recorded in Stockholm during the European tour, a live club date in New Jersey, and alternate takes from a NY studio recording session. Sound quality is not great, but this is an important item for fans of J.J. Johnson!
Two new released from Venus Records!
Emil Viklicky Trio / Kafka On The Shore - Tribute to Haruki Murakami
The second album by the immensely talented pianist from the Czech republic is a tribute to internationally renowned Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami. Program consists of original compositions inspired by Murakami's literary works and jazz standards. Mysterious, emotionally charged and compelling trio jazz! (Rec. 2011)
Cyrus Chestnut / Trio Moonlight Sonata
Cyrus Chestnut's firs leader album for Venus is a collection of "jazzified" classical melodies (a recurring theme pursued by the label in recent years), but there is nothing soft or pretty that you might imagine when you hear the concept. The approach and spirit here is pure jazz: driving, hard-boiled and dynamic! (Rec. 2011)
