Getz and guitarist Charlie Byrd - who was actually responsible for bringing bossa nova to the U.S. and introducing Getz to the style - have the perfect touch for bossa nova's delicate, airy texture."

  • 5 stars: "What is immedately noticeable upon listening to Miles Davis' classic first -- and only -- album with his original sextet is how deep the blues presence is on it. Though it's true that the album's title cut is rightfully credited with introducing modalism into jazz, and defining Davis' music for years to come, it is the sole selection of its kind on the record. The rest is all blues in any flavor you wish you call your own."

  (Item #: colemsomet_1811_1902) 

Our Price: $49.99

  • With two seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides, this copy was one of the best we played in our recent shootout
  • With its presence, clarity, space and timbral accuracy, this is sure to be one of the best sounding jazz records you've heard
  • Not quite as 'out there' as some others - those of you with a taste for adventurous jazz will still find much to love
  • 4 1/2 stars:"... the most important thing about Something Else! was that, in its angular, almost totally oppositional way, it swung and still does; like a finger-poppin' daddy on a Saturday night, this record swings from the rafters of the human heart with the most unusually gifted, emotional, and lyrical line since Bill Evans first hit the scene."

Herbie Hancock
My Point of View

  (Item #: hancomypoi_1812_1902) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • A superb sounding copy of Hancock's sophomore release from 1963 - this one earned solid Double Plus (A++) grades for sound on both sides
  • Grant Green on guitar and killer horn men (Hank Mobley on tenor, Grachan Moncur III on trombone, and Donald Byrd on trumpet) make this a special date indeed
  • About as quiet a copy as you will ever find- this one plays Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout
  • "Hot on the heels of his debut album Takin’ Off Hancock piled on the punishment with another must-have recording, My Point of View. 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."
