Huge jazz collection just in – look out for killer rare British jazz vinyl, Blue Note originals and much more….

…..we’ve just bought a killer collection of rare jazz – obtained from the private collection of an ex-employee of the legendary London jazz record shop ‘Dobells’. We are currently working through the collection but eagle-eyed jazzers in the office have spied a whole run of rare British jazz from John Surman, Chris Mcgregor, Tubby Hayes, Michael Gibbs, New Jazz Orchestra, Mike Westbrook Concert Band….pheeeww…and if that doesn’t whet your jazz whistle then keep your eye on the jazz store at – there are some very big hitters like 1st issue Blue Notes waiting to be added to the site…

JOHN SURMAN How Man Clouds Can You See? Rip-Roaring British Jazz 1970 UK first press 5-track stereo LP with matrices ending ‘1W’, the highly admired second album by English saxophonist John Surman, also starring Harry Beckett, Alan Skidmore,Barre Phillips & Tony Oxley & released on the collectable Deram label. The front laminated picture sleeve has the stereo/mono indicator hole on the back & comes complete with the original blue-for-stereo inner. The sleeve is Excellent with just a little light edge & ring wear. The vinyl grades VG+ with a number of light paper hairline scuffs & spindle marks which have little to no effect on play, more info here


THE MIKE WESTBROOK CONCERT BAND Marching Song Vol. 1 (Very Rare 1969 UK 6-track MONO LP, a Progressive Brit-Jazz epic with a huge cast including John Surman, Alan Skidmore, Mike Gibbs, Kenny Wheeler, Henry Lowther, Nisar Ahmed Khan & more. This record was pressed in far fewer quantities than the stereo version, which is hard to find in itself!
