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
TUBBY HAYES The Fontana Albums 1961-1969 (2020 UK/EU Deluxe Limited Edition ELEVEN LP set with all album pressed on Optimal 180gram Vinyl remastered from the original tape masters. All sleeves reproduce the original artwork [except LP2 is hybrid of two original artworks] and come complete with an extensive 11.5′ x 11.5′ booklet liner notes with exclusive photos & scans, housed within a sealed & numbered double-walled linen cloth bound edged box. A beautifully produced set which we highly recommend!).
PATRICIA BARBER Cafe Blue (2020 Impex Records 1STEP Process 180g 45RPM 2-LP pressed on VR900-Supreme Vinyl, cut from original Analog Masters by Kevin Gray at CoHearent Audio. Café Blue is the album that best personifies Patricia Barber’s genius. Spare, turbulent, quirky, and slyly humorous, there is no other jazz masterwork quite like it. Strictly limited to 5000 numbered pressings, factory sealed from new inside its cloth-bound slipcase, with picture hype sticker intact. Incredible!).
JOHN COLTRANE Coltrane In Japan (1973 Japanese-only 5-track triple LP box set, featuring an award winning performance recorded live at Kosei Nenkin Hall in Tokyo on 22nd July 1966 by the Coltrane Quintet, featuring Pharoah Sanders on Alto, Tenor & Percussion, Alice Coltrane on Piano, Jimmy Garrison on Bass & Rashied Ali on Drums.
