Classic James P. Johnson Sessions (#262)

This set is on backorder and is expected to be available July 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. It was more rhythmically complex than anything before it. More harmonically challenging. More exuberant and crafty. - Limited Edition: 5,000 Copies

The Complete Ahmad Jamal Trio Argo Sessions (#246)

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

Ahmad Jamal's recording as a piano trio leader on Argo, owned by Chicago's Chess recording label, began in 1956. And that's where our new retrospective begins on The Complete Ahmad Jamal Trio Argo Sessions 1956-62. The first definitive collection of his work from this seminal era of his career, it includes all the tunes for which Jamal became renowned, such as “Ahmad's Blues,” “Poinciana,” “But Not For Me,” and “Billy Boy,” a song so often re-done in Jamal's style that his version has almost become the new standard. - Limited Edition: 5,000 Copies
