  (Item #: colemornet_1910_2_8) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • A big, bold, KILLER sounding Atlantic pressing with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it throughout

  • With outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound from top to bottom, this copy has a lot going for it - fairly quiet vinyl too

Our Price: $119.99

  • Davis' superb 1971 release finally arrives on the site with outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades or BETTER on all four sides

  • A wonderful double album of both live and studio-recorded music, featuring numerous jazz greats, including Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett and Jack DeJohnette
  • Pitchfork's Ryan Schreiber believed it was "easily the most accessible of Miles Davis' late-'70s electric releases," describing its music as "at once both sexually steamy and unsettling." He said the live recordings "run the gamut from barroom brawl action-funk to sensual bedroom jazz magic, creating two hours of charged eccentricity you'll never forget."

  • A superb sounding copy of Coltrane's brilliant sixth studio album, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish

  • 4 1/2 stars: "The first album to hit the shelves after Giant Steps... While not the groundbreaker that Giant Steps was, Coltrane Jazz was a good consolidation of his gains as he prepared to launch into his peak years of the 1960s."

Cannonball Adderley
Jump For Joy

Our Price: $169.99

  • An incredible sounding copy - this early stereo pressing boasts Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound from start to finish
  • We were knocked out by the Tubey Magical midrange of this killer original, with all the saxophone's breath and bite you would expect to hear on an All Tube affair from 1958
  • This is precisely what is sure to be missing from whatever reissue has been made from the tapes (or, to be clear, a modern digital master copied from who-knows-what-tapes)
  • "Jump for Joy is Adderley's reinterpretation of a Duke Ellington stage musical from 1941... Hearing Adderley's often thrilling, always well-constructed alto sax improvisations over tunes like "I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good" is reason enough for the album to exist..."

  • "Smith bubbles and bounces through all of it at the B-3 while Nelson proceeds to fill every available corner with huge, sweeping orchestral washes and crescendos. The clear highlight, though, is the lead and title track, "Hobo Flats," which moves at a languid but wonderfully funky pace and establishes a groove as wide as the Mississippi River."

He assembled an astonishing septet for the sessions [which] gave him three brass voices to play with, the contrasting luminous flow of Grant Green, with free-swinging Anthony Williams and Chuck Israels at the anchor."

  • Excellent from first note to last - Double Plus sound (A++) on both sides - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Incredibly impressive funky Brazilian jazz sound with HUGE lifelike percussion - thanks RVG!
  • "Produced by Taylor and recorded at Rudy Van Gelder's famous New Jersey studio, this LP demonstrates just how exciting and creative 1970s fusion could be. When Moreira and his colleagues blend jazz with Brazilian music, rock and funk on such cuts as "Wind Chant," "Tombo in 7/4" and "Romance of Death," the results are consistently enriching. Fingers is an album to savor."

Our Price: $169.99

  • Incredible shootout winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close to it from start to finish - relatively quiet vinyl too
  • This All Tube Verve stereo Recording Verve from 1962 is one of the best Basie records from the era that we've played in a very long time
  • Here is the richness the music needs - horns need to be full-bodied if they are to sound like the real thing - but so are speed and clarity, two qualities that insure that all the horns have the proper bite and timbre
  • "A solid and worthwhile album that has been out of print for far too long, this will be a welcome addition to any Basie lover's collection, and comes highly recommended to anyone even mildly interested in excellent large-ensemble mainstream jazz."

  • A near-perfect demonstration of just how good 1958 All Tube Analog sound can be - no modern record can hold a candle to a pressing as good as this one
  • If you like your jazz ballads performed with deep feeling, by a road-tested group of virtuoso players, this record is going to be hard to beat

  • A recent addition to the TAS Super Disc List - these sides are natural and present, with plenty of bass and good space around all of the players
  • 4 1/2 stars: "Pat Metheny's debut studio album is a good one, a trio date that finds him already laying down the distinctively cottony, slightly withdrawn tone and asymmetrical phrasing that would serve him well through most of the swerves in direction ahead. This LP also features one of the earliest recordings of Jaco Pastorius, a fully formed, well-matched contrapuntal force on electric bass, though content to leave the spotlight mostly to Metheny."

Our Price: $99.99

  • This outstanding copy of Jive At Five boasts solid Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • This Prestige reissue LP is big, spacious, swinging with energy and absolutely jumping out of the speakers
  • 4 stars: "...[this music] is very much in the Count Basie vein. That fact is not too surprising when one considers that the quintet includes three members of Basie's men: trumpeter Joe Newman, tenor saxophonist Frank Wess and bassist Eddie Jones. Joined by the complementary pianist Tommy Flanagan and drummer Oliver Jackson, Newman and his friends swing their way through four vintage standards and a couple of the leader's original blues..."

Miles Davis
Filles de Kilimanjaro

  (Item #: davisfille_2006) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • A superb sounding stereo pressing with Double Plus (A++) sound or close to it on both sides - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • This Columbia 360 Label LP boasts rich, full-bodied, clear sound with the space and three-dimensionality that was difficult to find on the later pressings we played
  • Here is the space, richness, presence, and performance energy compared to others you've heard, and that's especially true if you bought whatever Heavy Vinyl pressing is currently on the market
  • "... this middle ground between the adventurous bop of the mid-'60s and the fusion of the late '60s is rewarding in its own right, since it's possible to hear great musicians find the foundation of a new form. For that alone, Filles de Kilimanjaro is necessary listening." 4 1/2 Stars

Blue Mitchell
Blue's Moods

  (Item #: mitchblues_2006) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A superb copy of Blue Mitchell's 1960 Riverside classic with solid Double Plus (A++) sound - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Yet another remarkable disc from the Golden Age of Vacuum Tube Recording, with the added benefit of mastering using more modern cutting equipment from the '70s and '80s
  • (We are of course here referring to the good modern mastering of 35+ years ago, not the typically opaque, veiled and lifeless mastering of today)
  • "Of trumpeter Blue Mitchell's seven Riverside recordings, only this set -- along with three numbers on Blue Soul -- feature Mitchell as the only horn. Joined by pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Roy Brooks, the trumpeter is typically distinctive, swinging, and inventive within the hard bop genre."

Our Price: $149.99

  • This superb copy of Duke Ellington's 1961 release boasts Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) from top to bottom - just shy of our Shootout Winner
  • The sound is gloriously ANALOG - smooth, relaxed and full-bodied - almost no other copy in our shootout had this kind of exceptionally natural sound
  • Wall to wall, floor to ceiling, room-filling All Tube Radio Recorders Studio sound like nothing you have ever heard
  • One of Ellington's most enjoyable classic collaborations with Billy Strayhorn
  • "All in all, it's one of Ellington's most focussed large-scale efforts... It ends on a swinging Ray Nance solo (on violin, yet!), miles away from the politesse of Grapelli. I've heard only one other violinist (and not a jazz violinist, surprisingly) swing this hard."

Eric Dolphy
Caribé

  (Item #: dolphcarib_1911_6) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • An outstanding copy of Caribe, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last
  • Not knowing much about the album, we were shocked at how well recorded Caribé is - RVG in 1960 is hard to beat for ENERGY and the sense of immediacy you get from being right in the room with these exciting musicians
  • "This record is the equivalent of throwing a stick of dynamite into a sedate, well-ordered dinner party, having the dynamite go off with a bang, and somehow leaving everything in its place. Such is the volatile Eric Dolphy, a serious wailer on the alto sax and even more idiosyncratic and radical on the bass clarinet, who barges into the lair of Juan Amalbert's Latin Jazz Quintet and doesn't perturb them in the least... fascinating without a doubt."

Our Price: $169.99

  • Bola Sete's wonderful 1966 release finally makes its Hot Stamper debut with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound from first note to last
  • This LP was bigger, richer and clearer, with less smear and distortion, and more Tubey Magic, than every other pressing we played
  • We have a devil of a time finding early pressings of this album in audiophile playing condition - the music is so good, but the surfaces of his records almost always have some issues...
  • 4 stars: "With the solid classical technique of Sete leading the way, this is a gently swinging set of mostly low-key Brazilian jazz (with a few livelier exceptions), as played by Sete's New Brazilian Trio."

Turrentine revels in a fine array of medium cookers, three of which came from his own pen. The covers are just as impressive, including a clutch of late-night blues and ballads from the standards canon..."

The Duke and his band accentuate their swinging dance band side, while Basie and company have never sounded as suave and exotic as when playing Billy Strayhorn arrangements. Everyone has a good time, and that joy infuses this album from start to finish."
