Recommendations: Jazz Vinyl Stores in Los Angeles

3 posts in this topic

Hey everyone!

It's been a good long time since I last posted. but I know this is still one of the best resources for jazz on the net. I'm visiting Los Angeles and Southern California in a few weeks and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for stores to buy vintage jazz vinyl?

Any insights would be appreciated!

I was just there last week and made the rounds to a number of stores. For jazz vinyl, I found Atomic and Freakbeat to be the best (as I was leaving Atomic I saw someone had just dropped off a majorly heavy free jazz collection, but they yelled at me not to flip through it haha). Amoeba's jazz vinyl selection was nice too, but it's a much bigger store and was a bit diluted.

Though you didn't ask, for the record in terms of jazz CDs, Amoeba was just incredible. Freakbeat had a much smaller section but the quality was high and prices were low. 

I found Pooh Bah and Canterbury (both in Pasadena) to be very poor for jazz in both formats. Jacknife was also not good at all imo.

Record Surplus in Santa Monica is a good spot.
