HBDirect April Jazz Sale Ends Tomorrow!

Only One Day Left!
The April Jazz sale at HBDirect will end Tomorrow at Midnight! This is your last chance to save on the complete catalogs of six labels, including new releases from Wynton and Branford Marsalis. You can click on any logo to browse the label's complete catalog.

He and She
Wynton's Best on Blue Note
"He and She is probably Marsalis' strongest release since he has signed with Blue Note. Love or hate his spoken word recitations, his playing remains as strong as ever. His band also performs with verve and his originals sparkle in their inspired hands. As a result, He and She is quite a rewarding release" -Epoch Times
New Releases On Blue Note
Cassandra Wilson: Closer To You: The Pop Side
Eliane Elias: Bossa Nova Stories
The Blue Note 7: Mosaic: A Celebration of Blue Note Records

Branford's Metamorphosen
"The veteran saxophonist's long-running quartet is a prime contender for the title of the tightest and most empathic jazz group around, and with all four players contributing fine compositions to this album, it adds up to a sure-fire winner... There is not even a suspicion of a weak track on this absorbing and inventive exploration of post-bop jazz possibilities." -The Scotsman
From Marsalis Music
Claudia Acuna: En Este Momento
Harry Connick Jr.: Occasion
Miguel Zenon: Jibaro
Branford Marsalis: Eternal
The Marsalis Family: A Jazz Celebration

Jurgen Friedrich
The Jurgen Friedrich Trio
"There's an alluring sense of discovery about the trio... The group, a serendipitous accident, continues its exciting chemistry on this second Pirouet album, which, despite a hard-swinging, cogent opener, Drift, and much that is poetic, spare and reflective, has an authoritatively handled range of mood and colour." -Irish Times
The Newest From Pirouet
Nicolas Thys: Virgo
Marc Copland: New York Trio, Vol. 3
Tim Hagans: Alone Together
