New Gerry Mulligan/Shorty RogersModern Sounds/Gerry Mulligan & His Ten-Tette ... CD
Capitol/DRG, 1951/1953. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great double-length CD that features 2 key west coast jazz sessions from Capitol Records! First up is Shorty Rogers' Modern Sounds – seminal west coast work from the start of the 50s! The group here is Rogers at his hippest – before a bigger rise to 50s fame, and right at the start of a great run as a leader and arranger on his own. The Giants combo here features Art Pepper on alto, Jimmy Giuffre on tenor, John Graas on French horn, and Hampton Hawes on piano – all playing with a style that's tight, yet still has plenty of swing, and a lot more room for individual group voices than other later arrangers who tried to cop Shorty's style! All tracks are extremely playful, but without sounding gimmicky – and tunes include "Four Mothers", "Didi", "Sam & The Lady", "Over The Rainbow", "Apropos" and "Popo". Next is Gerry Mulligan & His Ten-Tette – an early cooker from Mulligan, who's working with a real birth of the cool-styled group that includes Chet Baker and Pete Candoli on trumpets, Bud Shank on alto, John Graas on French horn, Bob Enevoldsen on trombone, and Chico Hamilton on drums – a really wonderful group that has a swing that's might lighter than you might guess from its size! The set is nicely arranged throughout – an early example of Gerry's powers in this respect – with plenty of thought in each tune, yet never so much so that the proceedings get too academic. Titles include "Rocker", "Walking Shoes", "Simbah", "Ontet", "Westwood Walk", "A Ballad", "Taking A Chance On Love", and "Flash". CD

New Chet BakerOn The Road – Live In LA & Boston '54 ... CD
Giant Steps (UK), 1954. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the best collections of live Chet Baker material we've seen in a long time – a 2CD package that offers up tracks in relatively straight concert performance – one performance from the Tiffany Club in LA, the other from Storyville in Boston! Both sets date from 1954, and feature the same group – Chet on trumpet, Russ Freeman on piano, Carson Smith on bass, and Bob Neel on drums – all working with that tight sense of economy that made the Baker group one of the most striking in jazz at the time. Collection features 16 titles from the LA date and 19 from Boston – a whopping 35 tracks in all, with titles that include "Line For Lyons", "Lady Bird", "No Ties", "Out Of Nowhere", "A Dandy Line", "Frenesi", "Carson City Stage", "Maid In Mexico", "Band Aid", "Long Ago & Far Away", "Happy Little Sunbeam", and "Time After Time".
