Happy 50th anniversary to these legendary recordings

We’d like to celebrate some recent landmark 50th year recording anniversaries!

May 27, 1963: Steppin' Out (Blue Note)

June 3, 1963: Page One (Blue Note)
This legendary album marked tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson’s first album as a leader with trumpeter Kenny Dorham. We're proud to offer two incredible Kenny Dorham originals from this session:


June 11 & 12, 1963: Roland Kirk Meets The Benny Golson Orchestra (Mercury)
On the first session day, Rahsaan Roland Kirk teamed up with the Benny Golson Orchestra. The next day was a quartet session, with Kirk’s beautiful slow swing ballad April Morning, his swingin’ blues Get In The Basement which is perfect for our Bass Corner, and the three-horn, three-part harmony Between The 4th And 5th Step.

Beat the heat with music!
