Cornell Dupree / Doin' Alright
Legendary guitarist's last album recorded in Texas two months before his passing. An important memorial album that is funky, bluesy and soulful! (Rec. 2011)

Sadao Watanabe / Come Today
The Japanese alto saxophonist's latest CD reflects his emotional journey through the passing of his wife and the East Japan Earthquake, going through sorrow and sadness and ultimately finding hope and renewal. The result is a wonderful straight ahead jazz album full of vitality, with strong support of talented, young American musicians (Gerald Clayton, Ben Williams and Johnathan Blake). (Rec. 2011)

EMI Japan's hard-to-find, rare reissues - Reasonably priced, limited edition jazz CDs!

Cannonball Adderley / Live!
An exciting live album by the three-horn Cannonball Adderley Sextet that includes his brother Nat Adderley on cornet, Charles Lloyd on flute and tenor sax, Joe Zawinul on piano, Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums! (Rec. 1964)

Cannonball Adderley Quintet / 74 Miles Away
A red hot live recording featuring straight ahead jazz and soulful, gospel-influenced jazz-rock tunes! With Nat Adderley, Joe Zawinul, Victor Gaskin and Roy McCurdy. (Rec. 1967)

Orchestra U.S.A. directed by John Lewis / Debut
The quintessential "Third Stream" album directed by John Lewis and the orchestra conducted by Gunther Schuller, featuring strong jazz musicians such as Eric Dolphy, Phil Woods, Jim Hall, Richard Davis, Connie Kay and Gary McFarland! (Rec. 1963)

Ray Draper featuring John Coltrane / A Tuba Jazz
A unique two-horn quintet recording featuring Ray Draper's tuba and John Coltrane's tenor sax! (Rec. 1958)

Herb Geller / Fire In The West
A very strong East-meets-West album featuring Geller, Kenny Dorham, Harold Land, Lou Levy, Ray Brown and Lawrence Marable! (Rec. 1957)

Kenny Dorham and Jackie McLean / Inta Somethin'
The first recorded history of the legendary Kenny Dorham and Jackie McLean Quintet which lasted only a little more than six months, this exciting live set is full of great hard bop moments! Features Walter Bishop Jr, Leroy Vinnegar and Art Taylor in the rhythm section. (Rec. 1961)

Teddy Edwards / Sunset Eyes
A great one-horn, quartet record by the underrated but great tenor saxophonist who had a unique style with a strong bebop foundation and an R&B flavor. A rare treasure! (Rec. 1959-1960)

Phineas Newborn Jr / Piano Portraits
Phineas Newborn Jr / I Love A Piano
The two great trio albums recorded by the virtuoso pianist for Roulette in 1958 and 1959 showcase his amazing technique and effective ideas, making each performance of well-known standards a unique experience! (Rec. 1958 and 1959)
