Some of the performances are among the most significant of his life and a lasting gift to music - there isn't a trumpeter since who hasn't marveled at the brilliance of his tone, coherence of his soloing, and perfection of his execution on the 1938 "Struttin' With Some Barbecue." It is, plain and simple, a flawless record.  - Limited Edition: 10000 Copies

Bee Hive
The Complete Bee Hive Sessions (#261)
Jim and Susan Neumann’s passion for bebop and hard bop led to the decision they would start their own label. They chose the name Bee Hive, after a Chicago club that thrived in the 1950s. Their enthusiasm resulted in sixteen LPs, released over a span of seven years. Because they were committed to independent distribution, even though the albums got noticed they were never widely available. And they've never been available on CDs.  - Limited Edition: 5,000 Copies

This set is on backorder and is expected to be available in 2017

James P. Johnson was one of the most important, if not THE most important, stride pianists, a style that developed in New York in the 1920s and the first music that sounds like what we call jazz.

Strata-East began as a collaboration between pianist Stanley Cowell and trumpeter Charles Tolliver, who were forced into “self-publishing” when they couldn’t find a label that would issue and market their “Music Inc.” album. Clifford Jordan liked what he heard and asked the team if they could press and release sessions he had made headlined by Pharoah Sanders, Charles Brackeen, Cecil Payne, Ed Blackwell, Wilbur Ware and himself on dates from 1968 and ‘69.

Gerry Mulligan
Gerry Mulligan: The Emarcy Sextet Recordings (5 LPs - #3008)
The 1955-56 Gerry Mulligan Sextet was an outstanding ensemble on several levels. In Jon Eardley, Bob Brookmeyer and Zoot Sims, Mulligan found soloists with the same high degree of invention and melodic development that he possessed. The light buoyant swing of Peck Morrison and Dave Bailey without the weight of a chordal instrument was inspiring to the soloists and a joy for the listener. But the most compelling characteristic of this sextet was Mulligan’s ability to write brilliant arrangements for a small group that possessed the drive and intricacy of a big band.  - Limited Edition: 3500 Copies
5 LPs (180 gram) - $125.00

Classic Savoy Be-Bop Sessions
Classic Savoy Be-Bop Sessions 1945-49 (#264)
