LP 180 gram

LP 180 gram

A fantastic album originally released in 1957 on Bethlehem. 5 great tracks with Jimmy Knepper, Shafi
Hadi, Bill Hardman, Clarence Shaw, Dannie Richmond, Horace Parlan and Bob Hammer. Featuring the
incredible Scenes In The City with the narration about a guy from Harlem and his relationship to jazz
(it shows what jazz can mean to someone whos not a musician but who lives on the music). Liner
notes.

Flutist Herbie Manns first recordings as a leader (seven tracks from 1954 - originally on a 10 - plus four
more cuts dated 1956). Essentially straight-ahead bop. A good example of Herbie Manns early style
(playing melodically and with swing).

LP 180 gram

NUF SAID

Originally released in 1955 on Bethlehem. Winding & Johnson co-led one of the most popular jazz groups
of the mid 50s and this is their classic album. Double trombone improvisations and strong performances
along with Dick Katz (piano), Al Harewood (drums), Milt Hinton (bass) and Wendell Marshall (bass). 10
tracks. Liner notes.

MEL TORM

This is Mel Tormes best album ever. An excellent voice, a great band and pure gold material, do you need
more? Mel, backed by a great 10-piece group, gets a bit more swinging and a bit more up-tempo than
usual (especially on cuts like Lulus Back In Town, The Carioca and Sing For Your Supper). Also
contains fantastic and definitive versions of standards like Lullaby Of Birdland, Fascinating Rhythm
and The Lady Is A Tramp.

THELONIOUS MONK

EARLY ROOTS

PARIS (14 NOVEMBER 1970)

LP 180 gram

Gatefold 2LP 180 gram

The early recordings of one of the most exciting saxophone soloists in jazz history. Roland Kirk was an
immensely creative artist and maybe no improvising saxophonist has ever possessed a more
comprehensive technique (covering every aspect of jazz, from Dixie to free). The music here is mostly
blues and ballads with a touch of R&B thrown in.

Superb and ultra rare double album (originally recorded for the French BYG label but later released by
Affinity) featuring Monk with Charlie Rouse on sax, Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums. Eight
tracks recorded live in Paris on November 14, 1970.

Wiley and Clem De Rosa creating a cool jazz sound. 6 tracks featuring a great take on Stormy Weather.

ERIC DOLPHY

IRON MAN

WHERE FORTUNE SMILES

LP 180 gram

Gatefold LP 180 gram

Eric Dolphy was a true original with his own distinctive styles on alto, flute and bass clarinet and these
are classic recordings in any form and constitute some of the most brilliant work of the early 60s avantgarde. Iron Man is every bit essential and it also clearly anticipates the detailed, abstract sound
paintings of Dolphys masterwork Out to Lunch. In large part the track listing is weighted here toward
Dolphys originals: Iron Man, Burning Spear and the shorter Mandrake all have outside themes, full
of Dolphys trademark wide interval leaps and playful sense of dissonance. Featuring vibraphonist Bobby
Hutcherson, bassist Richard Davis, trumpeter Woody Shaw, flutist Prince Lasha, altoist Sonny Simmons
and soprano sax player Clifford Jordan.

Originally released in March 1971 by the Dawn label. 5 great free jazz improvisation tracks recorded at
Apostolic Studios in New York City during May 1970 with John Surman (sax), Karl Berger (piano), Stu
Martin (drums) and Dave Holland (bass).

ORIENT

CONVERSATIONS

Super rare double album (originally recorded for the French BYG label but later released by Affinity)
showing Don Cherry in two 1971 live trio sets. Orient Part 1 & 2 and Si Ta Ra Ma were recorded in
Carpentras, France on August 11th with the great Dutch drummer Han Bennink and Mocqui Cherry on
tamboura. Eagle Eye Part 1 & 2 and Togetherness were recorded in Paris on April 22nd with the
amazing South African bassist Johnny Dyani and drummer Okay Temiz. Also available on CD (FT 825).

Although, due to his tragically premature death in 1964, his own recording career lasted just four short
years, he is remembered as one of the most pioneering multi-instrumentalists of the period,
collaborating extensively with Coltrane and Mingus. Conversations, recorded in the spring of 1963 under
the supervision of Alan Douglas, is one of the key works of his career.

CECIL TAYLOR

SERENITY

GREAT PARIS CONCERT

LP 180 gram

Gatefold 2LP 180 gram

When pianist Bill Evans arrived on the jazz scene in the late fifties his unusually quiet and introspective
style of playing and mild-mannered demeanor made him an anomaly in his field. In 1958 he became a
member of Miles Davis sextet, playing on the sessions that led to the epoch-making Kind of Blue. Miles
later wrote Bill had this quiet fire that I loved on the piano. The way he approached it, the sound he got
was like crystal notes or sparkling water cascading down from some clear waterfall. Evans eventually
dropped out of the sextet because of the hectic tour schedule and began leading his own trio with Scott
LaFaro and Eddie Gomez. This album is from that later period which continued through the late sixties
and seventies up until his death in 1980.

Pianist / composer Cecil Taylor is still one of the most controversial figures in jazz, and for many, his
work ranks as some of the the most profound art ever produced. This double LP, recorded live in Paris in
1964, feaures Taylor (piano), Jimmy Lyons (alto sax) and Andrew Cyrille (drums) in an unrelenting 110
minute set.

MAX ROACH

LIVE IN PARIS

Gatefold 2LP 180 gram

Gatefold 2LP 180 gram

Three sides of this double LP come from a concert Coltrane played at the Salle Pleyel in Paris on July 28,
1965 (with McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums), but the first side
of the LP was recorded outdoors at the Antibes Jazz Festival (held a day earlier). While the audience
lounged in shorts the quartet sweltered on stage in tuxedos. Tenor saxophonist Coltrane has been
called the most influential musician in modern jazz.

Jazz drummer Max Roach is one of the instruments greatest masters. He revolutionized the way the drum
is used, and his profound impact can still be felt in jazz today. A major voice in the bebop revolution, it
is Roachs drumming that punctuated many of the genre-shaping recordings from the late forties and
early fifties, including Miles Davis historicThe Birth Of The Cool. It was also around this same time that
he and Charles Mingus started up their own label, Debut Records. These live recordings (from 1960-1961)
come from a time when Roach was a vocal advocate of the Civil Rights movement, increasingly mixing
music and politics, perhaps best illustrated on his classic 1960 We Insist! Freedom Now Suite.

ART ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO

NINA SIMONE

LIVE IN PARIS

SINGS BILLIE HOLIDAYS BLUES

Gatefold 2LP 180 gram

LP 180 gram

Recorded in Paris on Oct. 5, 1969, after the Art Ensemble (Roscoe Mitchell, Lester Bowie, Joseph Jarman
and Malachi Favors) headed to Europe to find work and recording opportunities. Regarding the Art
Ensembles trip to France, trumpet player Lester Bowie said, I sold everything that I had and bought the
tickets. We had to leave Chicago to let people know what was happening. You cant stay regional, not if
you have something the world wants to hear

The High Priestess Of Soul pays tribute to the queen herself, Billie Holiday. Despite the decades that
divide the two singers and the fact that Holiday was from the North (Philadelphia) and Simone was from
the South (North Carolina), the two pioneering vocalists are united not only by their music, but also by
the fact that both women put their musical careers on the line to sing about racism and the atrocities
being committed against black Americans. Holidays harrowing Strange Fruit (included here) and Nina
Simones Mississippi Goddamn! are parallel protest songs, although the courageous Lady Day was
singing hers decades before the Civil Rights Movement. These eight amazing Billie Holiday classics are
given the full Nina Simone treatment - a rare opportunity to enjoy two legends in one sitting!

THE NONET - LIVE!

Recorded live at the Salle Pleyel in Paris during the European Jazz Expo 67 tour, the line-up for the
concert ranged from a basic quartet featuring Monk on piano, Charlie Rouse on tenor sax, Larry Gales
on bass and Ben Riley on drums, to a nonet featuring several added horn players. The fact that Monk
rarely played with so large a group makes this concert a rare historical event and this album an
important historical document in understanding a rare side of Monks sound. All of the music heard on
this double LP is original Monk material (some of which was written in the early forties) Includes: We
See, Epistrophy, Oska-T, Evidence, Blue Monk, Epistrophy and the classic Monk ballad
Ruby My Dear.

PLAYS MONK

Recorded on September 23, 1969 and originally released on BYG as Epistrophy, this classic Lacy LP featuring Jean Francois Jenny-Clark (bass), Aldo Romano (drums) and Michel Graillier (piano) - was
Lacys first recording in Paris (his newly adopted city). Here Lacy, a longtime Monk disciple, takes
listeners on a journey through some of Monks most complex compositions, leaving his own inspired and
instantly recognizable thumbprint on these timeless originals.

COLEMAN HAWKINS
AN EVENING AT PAPA JOES

GET BACK JAZZ

LP 180 gram

One of the first great masters of the tenor sax, Coleman Hawkins (1904-1969) began playing sax when
the instrument was still in its infancy and not yet considered a serious musicians instrument. But
Hawkins soon changed all this, permanently bringing the instrument into the jazz musicians realm.
During his four decade prime (1925-1965), he set the pace among tenors and was considered a major
influence on everyone from Ben Webster to Sonny Rollins and Archie Shepp. Following jazz from its humble
beginnings to its heyday Hawkins recorded with Mamie Smith, Ma Rainey, Louis Armstrong, Lionel
Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Max Roach and
Eric Dolphy (to name a few). This album, recorded in NYC in 1958, finds Hawkins in his prime and
features some of his own compositions as well as classic arrangements by Billy Ver Planck.
