Thelonious Monk Monk In France
From 1961, featuring Charlie Rouse... though the stand-out is Just A Gigolo, by Monk solo.



Thelonious Monk Monk
With Art Blakey, Frank Foster and Sonny Rollins in 1953-4. A sublime Smoke Gets In Your Eyes; unmissable stuff like Hackensack. Sleeve artwork by Andy Warhol.



Muddy Waters Down On Stovall's Plantation
His first recordings, from 1941. Alan Lomax came across him running a juke joint in Mississippi. With Henry Sims on violin, Louis Ford on mandolin, and Percy Thomas on guitar.



Gerry Mulligan, Paul Desmond Quartet
Their first together, from August 1957 — a chilled blend of standards, and original compositions like Desmond’s Blues In Time, and Mulligan’s hit Line For Lyons.




Bud Powell The Amazing Bud Powell Volumes 1 And 2
His blazing, Blue Note masterpieces — utterly essential, genius bebop-piano.



Ravi Shankar And Ali Akbar-Kahn The Master Musicians Of India
Two ragas recorded for Prestige — with Ali Akbar-Khan, the world’s best sarod player, plus tabla and tamboura. (The first tamboura is Nodu C. Mullick, who made Shankar’s sitar.)





Django Reinhardt And Stephane Grappelli With The Quintet Of The Hot Club Of France
London recordings, 1938-46, following the group from early years towards disbandment in 1948, and featuring the incredible violin work of Stephane Grappelli.



Django Reinhardt And Stephane Grappelli Parisian Swing
1930s recordings from both Paris and London, including masterpieces like Djangology and Ultrafox.



Otis Rush Cobra
Searing, corner-stone Chicago blues. Double Trouble, f-u-c-k-i-n-g h-e-l-l... with Ike Turner on second guitar. Just listen to it. Otis Rush, barely turned twenty, total genius.



Serge Gainsbourg Du Chant A La Une!
His first two, chansonnier albums, from 1958 and 1959, both originally ten-inches.
