Time Out 50th
Time Out Turns 50!
"It's the bonus discs that warrant the attention here. First there's a second audio CD that contains previously unreleased concert recordings from 1961, 1963, and 1964 with the classic quartet of Brubeck... In sum, this package adds tremendously to the value of the original album." -All Music Guide
New 50th Anniversary Sets On Sale!
Miles Davis: Sketches Of Spain
Charles Mingus: Mingus Ah Um
Miles Davis: Kind of Blue

My one and only
Melody Gardot's Latest
"My One and Only Thrill is the spellbinding follow up to Gardot's compelling debut, Worrisome Heart, and eloquently confirms her as a supreme songwriting talent possessed of a truly sublime voice... this is already one of the outstanding albums of 2009. Talents like Melody Gardot come along all too infrequently. Now that she's here, she is to be treasured." -BBC Music
New Releases From Verve
Luciana Souza: Tide
Keith Jarrett: Treasure Island - $8.98
Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers: Soul Finger - $8.98

New on SACD!
"Lee-Way boasts a vivid piano that doesn't exhibit the blurry softness [of] some Rudy Van Gelder recordings, and bass that doesn't go particularly deep but is well defined... Original Blue Note mono LPs are commanding increasingly ridiculous prices, and even the prices of Japanese reissues are creeping upwards... Get them now while you can, or regret it later." -Soundstage
