Jazz has played a vital part in the history of music since it began, and even if you don’t know it, it has probably influenced the music you listen to today. From the greats such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Dizzy Gillespie to the underrated genius of Duke Pearson and Sam Rivers, we pride ourselves on having a fine selection of jazz records for our customers.
We’ve selected a few highlights and latest arrivals below, and the full catalogue can be found at eil.com
THELONIOUS MONK The Riverside Tenor Sessions (Fantastic 1998 US limited edition audiophile SEVEN LP boxed set with each album in its own reproduction of the original sleeve artwork, complete with insert & amazing 24-page full size illustrated booklet which is individually hand numbered 1950 inside the back, all housed in a high quality silver embossed lettering textured picture box. The box shows negligible shelf wear and the contents are immaculate – an outstanding ‘near as new’ example APJ037)
GALLIARD Strange Pleasure (Extremely rare 1970 first UK issue 10-track stereo vinyl LP on the orange & silver Deram Nova label, a wonderful progressive rock / jazz effort by this obscure British group that is now highly regarded by collectors. The front laminated picture sleeve has the pinched spine and mono / stereo hole indicator on the back with blue-for-stereo company inner featuring a couple of rare press clippings attached. This is a one previous owner copy from an archive collection of late sixties, early seventies rarities. The sleeve is tape reinforced along the bottom but there is no split. The condition is otherwise astonishing. The sleeve is near mint and the vinyl looks barely touched SDN4).
LEE MORGAN The Complete Live At The Lighthouse (Long-awaited & highly anticipated limited edition expansive 12 x LP Box Set, and all-analogue production mixed by Steve Genewick at Capitol Studios from the original tapes, mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and pressed at RTI on 180-gram vinyl. With more than four hours of unreleased music The Complete Live At The Lighthouse presents, for the first time, all 12 sets of the legendary trumpeter Lee Morgan and his quintet during their historic engagement at the Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach, CA, from July 10-12, 1970. Housed inside a deluxe box with 28-page large format booklet insert. Individually hand-numbered first edition limited to just 2000 copies, brand new & factory sealed).
