Miles, Sonny, Bird & More - On Sale At HBDirect!

The HBDirect March Jazz Sale Begins!
This month at HBDirect we're discounting the complete catalogs of five labels and select new releases. You can click the logos below for each label's catalog or click here to scroll through the savings!

A Session With Miles, Sonny & Bird $12.98 $8.98 Davis: Collectors Item
"This set lives up to its title by including such interesting sessions as the 1953 date on which Miles Davis welcomed the two tenors of Sonny Rollins and Charlie Parker; other meetings with Rollins in 1951 and 1956; and a moody 1955 date with bassist Charles Mingus, trombone, vibes, and drums (a young Elvin Jones)... Given the differing personnel and dates, it's fairly remarkable that the resulting CD actually has the arc of coherence to it.” -All Music Guide
New Releases From Fantasy Records - $8.98 Each!
John Coltrane: Standard Coltrane
Sonny Rollins: Worktime
Kenny Burrell/Coleman Hawkins: Bluesy Burrell

Sarah Vaughan: Everything I Have Is Yours $15.99 $11.99SHFT: Vaughan
"Because of the narrow chronological focus, you hear Vaughan working on her craft, developing her vocal sound in different ways, and melting into the band's music like few other vocalists can... The musicianship is always solid, making for a pleasing listening experience." -All Music Guide

New And Not To Be Missed!
Modern Jazz Quartet: Legendary Profile
Monty Alexander: Calypso Blues: The Songs of Nat King Cole
Django Reinhardt: Postwar Recordings 1944-1953

Artie Shaw: The Last Recordings $17.99 $13.99NIM: Artie Shaw
These marvellous performances are culled from Artie Shaw’s final recordings as an instrumentalist and make it crystal clear that he retired at the height of his powers. Throughout these pieces, his playing is a joy to the ear and the mind, and his unique sound on the clarinet has seldom, if ever, been better captured.

Preorder Upcoming Releases From Nimbus!
Freddie Hubbard: MMTC (Monk, Miles, Trane & Cannon)
Vincent Herring: American Herring
Louie Bellson: Hot
