11,99 €*

However, that unit is often upgraded to a sextet with Glauco Masetti (alto sax) and Gianno Basso (tenor sax).

Sonny Rollins
What's New?
LP | 1962 | EU | Reissue (Wax Love)
12,99 €*
Release:1962 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
While so much attention is paid to his titles on Blue Note, Contemporary, and Prestige, Sonny Rollins' RCA sessions from the early '60s are some of his finest sessions and they don't get nearly the attention they deserve. In 1962 alone he released two classic titles, The Bridge and this album, What's New? Featuring Jim Hall on guitar and Candido on percussion among other heavy hissing session musicians, What's New? is particularly remarkable for the Rollins' originals including the blazing, Latin influenced "Jungoso" which features one of the most forceful solos of his career. A beautiful bossa-inspired bit of early '60s jazz that stands tall among the catalog of one of the true pillars of the tenor saxophone.
Charles Mingus - Right Now: Live At The Jazz Workshop
Charles Mingus
Right Now: Live At The Jazz Workshop
LP | 1966 | EU | Reissue (Wax Love)
12,99 €*
Release:1966 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
With Clifford Jordan on tenor, John Handy on alto, Jane Getz on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums, Charles Mingus went into San Francisco and whipped up a storm. This LP contains two compositions over 23-minutes each: “New Fables” and “Meditation (For A Pair Of Wire Cutters).” “New Fables” features a ten-minute solo from Jordan, some fine ensemble work, and a solo encounter from Handy. Mingus changes the mood as he sees fit, and one would describe these different styles as avant-garde (in 1964), blues, flamenco, and straight-ahead jazz. Handy’s work is stirring, deeply imaginative, technically thrilling, and a harbinger of what was to come the following year at Monterey. In “Meditations” Mingus bowing the bass in the cello range with that certain sad quality, Jane Getz playing loose, free, and exciting, much as she does today, and a moment where Mingus joins Getz for a fourhanded piano romp. The piece is a flowing ballad, but there are constant changes throughout(...) (allaboutjazz)

Genre:Organic Grooves
Mance Lipscomb - born Beau De Glen Lipscomb near Navasota, Texas in 1895, and nicknamed Mance (short for emancipation) by a childhood friend - was an incredible guitarist and blues singers who didn't make a recording until the age of 65. Discovered during the folk and blues revival of the late '50s and early '60s Lipscomb would record regularly until his death in 1976 at the age of 80. A tenant farmer for most of his life, Lipscomb was the son of a former slave father and half-Choctaw Indian mother. He began playing guitar early in his life and spent most of his life performing at "Saturday night suppers" hosted by local friends or, often, by himself and his wife. After his discovery, Lipscomb would go on to perform at the first ever Monterey Folk Festival in 1963 as well as at numerous clubs of the folk-revival, most notable The Ash Grove in Los Angeles. Collected here are his earliest recordings, from 1960, and they are some of the most beautiful and transcendent of Texas folk-blues. Crucial recordings from one of the greatest individual voices of the folk and blues revival.

LP | 1958 | EU | Reissue (Wax Love)
12,99 €*
Release:1958 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
By far one of the most outrageous performers of the early years of rock, prone to emerging from coffins on stage, with a flaming skull named Henry as his constant companion, Screamin' Jay was an insanely theatrical figure long before it was even remotely acceptable. His 1958 debut, At Home, featuring his legendary 'I Put A Spell On You,' along with surreal hits like 'Hong Kong,' 'Take Me Back To The Boot And Saddle,' or his wild-ass reinventions of old standards like 'I Love Paris' and 'Deep Purple' is a carefully arranged yet gritty, Ray Charles-gone-crazy styled, full band rhythm and blues masterpiece, filled with enough howls and groans to send chills down your spine.

All the music is composed by Van Kreidt and the overall sound is very different from the classic Brubeck set up.

Release:1962 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
A bit of an anomaly in the B.B. King catalog, this 1962 LP is all instrumental tracks in the guitar driven pop-blues style of early Freddie King. Originally released on Crown - which was part of the RPM/Modern/Kent umbrella that B.B. King had recorded for since nearly the beginning of his career 10+ years before - this is a collection that was aimed at the burgeoning white market for R&B and blues and is therefore a little more pop-oriented than previous releases but that lends a charm to these recordings not often found on other King releases. Killer R&B/blues instrumentals from one of the greatest guitarists of the 20th Century.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Lift to the Scaffold or, in the original French title, Ascenseur pour l'échafaud, is a brilliant film noir from 1958 that helped to establish the Nouvelle Vague and the New Modern Cinema scenes. No less brilliant is the score, composed by Miles Davis and featuring mostly French musicians, including the great Barney Wilen on tenor saxophone, as well as Kenny Clarke on drums, this is some of the most lonesome and morose music Davis recorded in his career. Perfectly matching the stark, dangerous, and grim moods of the film, this is a truly amazing score by one of the biggest names in jazz music history.

The great Eddie Cochran, an early rock and roll legend rivaled only by the likes of Elvis, and his good friends Buddy, and Richie, was gone before his 22nd birthday, the victim of a taxi cab crash while on tour in England. It's hard to imagine, when listening to Cochran's body of work, that one man could record so much classic material in such a brief period of time. Cochran's first solo release came in 1956, and in less than 5 years he recorded dozens of singles, including 7 chart hits in the USA, and a number more in the UK. This comp includes some of his biggest hits as well as numerous b-side rarities, showcasing the breadth and depth of this legendary early rock and roller.

Though he's been dead for nearly 50 years, Joe Meek remains one of the most fascinating and influential figures in British pop music. A brilliant and prolific producer and songwriter - despite his inability to either play an instrument or read music - Meek also happened to be an occultist, paranoiac, suicidal depressive and, to top it all off, a murderer. Though only 37 at the time of his death Meek left a large body of work rivaled only by his equally inspired/insane competitor across the pond, Phil Spector. This brand new collection on Wax Love bring 18 of Meek's finest early '60s pop productions back to life on vinyl, the format they were made for. Dig in!

Unlike his debut - which took only two days in the studio to record - The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan finally emerged in May 1963 after some 8 sessions at Columbia Records Studio A, over the course of nearly a year. The time and effort paid off in spades, as he emerged from the studio a fully-formed bona fide songwriter with a legitimate hit on his hands. Obviously, the final album left much material on the cutting room floor and Wax Love is pleased to bring some of that rarely heard material back to light. A mix of originals that never made it onto any LP, alternate takes, and cover songs, Freewheelin' Outtakes: The Columbia Sessions, NYC, 1962 captures America's most important living songwriter at a pivotal moment in his career when he emerged from the Greenwich Village folk scene to become the voice of his generation.
