Vi ReddBird Call (United Artists) ... CD
United Artists/EMI (Japan), 1963. Used ... $9.99
An excellent bit of early 60s soulbop – and one of two rare albums ever cut by the obscure female alto player Vi Redd, one of the few women sax players of her generation to get recorded! The album's got an easygoing groove that's mighty nice – a touch of R&B at times, but not nearly as much as you'd hear on Redd's other record for Atlantic – thanks to a sensitive jazz-based presentation by a group that also features a young Roy Ayers on vibes, making his first-ever appearance on record! Other players include Herb Ellis on guitar and Russ Freeman on piano – plus Kansas Lawrence on trumpet, who's clearly a bigger-name player working under another name. Vi sings on the record, in addition to playing alto sax – in this laidback way that's a bit like Trudy Pitts – and although the record's billed as a tribute to Charlie Parker, it's got a lot more going on than that! Tracks include "Summertime", "Old Folks", "Just Friends", "Now's The Time", "Anthropology", and "Cool Blues Perhaps". CD

Benny CarterAspects (aka Jazz Calendar) ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good ... $3.99
A real corker from Benny Carter's revival period at the end of the 50s – a large group session recorded with a very strong horn section, arranged and produced by Benny himself! The album's got a "calendar" gimmick – in that each of the 12 songs feature a month in the name – but you've gotta thank Benny for getting past that simple trick and keeping things real with an unobtrusive title and cover – and some extremely strong arrangements that cook nicely no matter what the tune! Titles include "Swingin In November", "Something For October", "August Moon", "March Wind", and "February Fiesta". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label 60s pressing.)

New John ColtraneColtrane Time ... LP
United Artists, 1958. Near Mint- ... $24.99
This is a repackaged version of an album that was originally issued under Cecil Taylor's name, under the title Hard Drive (and later Stereo Drive, or something like that). The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane – in a group that includes Kenny Dorham, Chuck Israels, and Louis Hayes. The music is a startling mix of styles – as Taylor's heavy piano clashes noisily with Trane's free flowing lines on the tenor. It doesn't always work, but it's well worth a listen, and stands as a critical meeting of two important talents that were both best known on their own. Tracks include "Shifting Down", "Double Clutching", and "Just Friends". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono UA pressing in the textured cover.)

Duke Ellington/Charles Mingus/Max RoachMoney Jungle (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1962. New Copy ... $28.99
Rarely are such "meeting of the minds" sessions worth any fuss at all – but in this case, the masterful talents of the players turn what should be a snoozy "common denominator" session into a modernist classic that still crackles with excitement after all these years! The real success factor here is Ellington, who was hitting a point in his career when he was really beginning to experiment again – as you'll hear in the beautifully angular piano lines that he lays next to Mingus' bass and Roach's lively drums. The set's nearly all originals, and titles include "Money Jungle", "Le Fleurs Africaines", and "Wig Wise". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington/Louis ArmstrongParis Blues – Original Soundtrack ... LP
United Artists, 1961. Very Good ... $9.99
We've always loved Duke Ellington's soundtracks, and this is one of his best! The score is a moody introspective one, written for a 1961 film that starred Paul Newman as a frustrated jazz musician living in Paris. The "Paris Blues" theme is a dark, somber composition that is supposedly Newman's masterpiece as a jazz writer – and it works beautifully with the film's themes of frustration and unfulfilled desire. Ellington's at his best here, and apart from the main theme, the score also has great versions of classics like "Mood Indigo" and "Take The A Train", plus originals like "Nite", "Wild Man Moore", "Guitar Amour", and "Paris Stairs". Also features Louis Armstrong on one track! LP, Vinyl record album

New Bill Evans & Jim HallUndercurrent ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $49.99
A legendary set from the team of guitarist Jim Hall and pianist Bill Evans – both already wonderful players on their own, but really hitting a magical sort of space here together! The record is a classic in understatement – the inevitable meeting of two players who'd both made a career out of saying more with less – and both Evans and Hall manage to make this special sort of sound when working together in such a space – spare, but never short on ideas – filled with color and tone, but never overdone. The tracks are long and dreamy, and the piano/guitar lines seem to float in the air, suspended on naught but idea and imagination. Titles include a very nice version of "Skating In Central Park", plus "Dream Gypsy", "Romain", and "Darn That Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, in textured gatefold cover. Cover has some light edge wear, with some very small stains inside the gatefold, but cover looks nice overall.)

Art FarmerBrass Shout/Aztec Suite ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note, 1959. Used ... $4.99
An amazing 2-in-1 CD – filled with sublime work from the mighty Art Farmer! First up is Brass Shout – a great little album by this wonderful trumpeter – and one that we passed up for years because we were afraid of the words "brass" and "shout" in the title! If you're a Farmer fan, though, don't worry about this being some sort of snoozy "bold n brassy" session – because it's a much more subtle record, and features some excellent lead solos by Farmer, set amidst a larger group arranged wonderfully by Benny Golson! Golson brings a great sense of balance to the album – mixing some larger horn passages with soulfully snapping rhythms, all at a level that still allows plenty of space for Farmer to solo sweetly on trumpet. Other players on the record include Lee Morgan on trumpet and Curtis Fuller on trombone, Percy Heath on bass, and either Philly Joe Jones or Elvin Jones on drums – and titles include "Minor Vamp", "Nica's Dream", "Stella By Starlight", "Moanin", "April In Paris", and "Five Spot After Dark". Aztec Suite is a rare Latin outing from trumpeter Art Farmer – one that has him working with the mighty Cuban arranger Chico O'Farrill! The grooves here are hardly "Aztec", as Chico brings a hip postwar vibe to the session – a blend of American jazz and Latin rhythms that's totally great, and played by an all-star array of players conducted by Al Cohn! Side one of the record features the extended "Aztec Suite" – an ambitious number that begins with modern moments that are somewhere in a space between Stan Kenton and Ralph Burns' experiments of this nature, but which always has Farmer's trumpet as the center focus. Side two features tracks that are a bit more conventional Latin jazz – still played by the bigger group, but with an even stronger sense of swing! Titles include "Aztec Suite", "Heat Wave", "Drume Negrita", "Alone Together", "Woody N You", and "Delirio". CD

Art FarmerModern Art ... LP
United Artists, 1958. Good ... $14.99
A seminal session as a leader by the young Art Farmer – recorded for United Artists, and a great set of tight lyrical tunes, played by Farmer in his sparkling style – in a group along with Benny Golson on tenor and Bill Evans on piano. Evans is a special treat here, as the 1958 session was recorded at a time when he was making a fair bit of appearances in various rhythm sections for horn players (like Miles Davis) – and although this role in Evans' career was a short one, it yielded some amazingly beautiful moments, as you'll hear on this album. Art's brother Addison plays bass, and Dave Bailey rounds out the group on drums. Tracks include "Cold Breeze", "Mox Nix", "Jubilation", and "Fair Weather". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original heavy rainbow label pressing with deep groove! Cover has some wear. Vinyl plays with some noise.)

John LewisOdds Against Tomorrow – Original Soundtrack ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Sealed ... $14.99
Proof that the serious compositional intentions of MJQ member John Lewis could more than be fulfilled – and a nice dramatic score that features a few themes that would later be taken up more fully by Lewis' group. The set is mostly orchestral with jazz touches – featuring Lewis at the head of a large group of musicians that includes MJQ members Milt Jackson, Connie Kay, and Percy Heath – plus Jim Hall, Bill Evans, Tom McIntosh, Gunther Schuller, and Joe Wilder. Tracks are relatively short, and titles include "Games", "Social Call", "The Carousel Incident", "Skating In Central Park", "No Happiness For Slater", "How To Frame Pigeons", and "A Cold Wind Is Blowing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed early pressing – nice and heavy!)

New Modern Jazz QuartetPatterns ... LP
United Artists, 1960. Very Good ... $0.49
Nice moody stuff from the MJQ – featuring a number of longish tracks with kind of a haunting soundtrack quality to them. In fact, most of these cuts (we think) appeared on the soundtrack to the film Odds Against Tomorrow, but are redone here by the band in new versions. Titles include "Skating In Central Park", "A Social Call", "Cold Wind Is Blowing", and "Cue #9". LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry MulliganJazz Combo From I Want To Live! ... LP
United Artists, 1958. Very Good+ ... $6.99
This is the small combo recording of tracks from the legendary jazz score to I Want To Live! Although not featured that prominently in the film, the band of Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, Bud Shank, and others were a pretty tight little group – even though it was strange to see this west coast whitebread group playing in scenes of jazz/crime/evil. The record's a nice one, though, and features some of the livelier playing you'll hear from the players. Tracks are long, and titles include "Black Nightgown", "Night Watch", and the raging "Theme From I Want To Live". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove.)

Jerome RichardsonGoing To The Movies ... CD
United Artists (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $15.99
Wonderful stuff – a rare one from the early 60s that has master reedman Jerome Richardson running through hip versions of hip tracks from hip (and not-so-hip) movies! Includes nice long versions of "Delilah" and "No Problem" (from Les Liasons Dangereuses), plus "Never On Sunday", "Tonight", and "Moon River". Sound's snoozy, but it's not – mostly because the arrangements are sparkling and kind of modern, and because the band is excellent, and plays with unrestrained fire and imagination – not in the usual way you'd expect from a "jazz player meets movies" sort of session! Richardson is on tenor, baritone, and flute – and the group's a quintet with Les Spann on guitar and flute, Richard Wyands on piano, Henry Grimes on bass, and Grady Tate on drums. CD

Kenny DorhamMatador (Douglas pressing) ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A brilliant album from Kenny Dorham – one of his more far-reaching efforts, with the expansive compositional style that he started bringing to some of his Blue Note work of the early 60s. The record features a group with Jackie McLean on alto, Bobby Timmons on piano, Teddy Smith on bass, and JC Moses on drums – all working with Kenny in a slightly Latin tinged mode that features some really shimmering trumpet work! The record features a stunning 3 part reading of McLean's haunting tune "Melanie" (done under his name on the album A Fickle Sonance) – plus the tracks "Prelude", "El Matador", "Smile", and "There Goes My Heart".

An excellent gimmick – and yet another way that United Artists was trying to push its "Bond" catalog in the 60s! Count Basie brings a soulful swing to the work of John Barry – hitting hard on the tracks with his own smoking piano, and an orchestra filled with some of his best players, like Al Grey, Eric Dixon, and Freddie Green – as well as Eddie Lockjaw Davis, an artist who wasn't credited on the session at he time. Arrangements are by Chico O'Farrill and George Williams – and titles include "Thunderball", "From Russia With Love", "007", "Girl Trouble", and "Goldfinger". LP, Vinyl record album

New Earl KlughDream Come True ... LP
United Artists, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warm guitar magic from Earl Klugh – exactly the kind of record that helped cement his fame at the start of the 80s – making Klugh one of the leading guitarists of his time! The style's often a bit mellow, but never in a sleepy way – just a great extension of the mode that Earl first displayed on his debut – a way of doing more with less – leaving more than enough space between the notes to keep things soulful, and offering a nice contrast to some of the too-jamming fusion artists of his generation. There's often some sweet keyboards nestled in with the guitar – and Dave Matthews handled all the arrangements, so you can bet there's a tight, soulful feel to the whole record! Titles include "Spellbound", "Doc", "Amazon", "I Don't Want To Leave You Alone Anymore", and "Message To Michael". LP, Vinyl record album

New Edmond HallPetite Fleur ... CD
United Artists/Mighty Quinn, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
A compelling comeback set for clarinetist Edmond Hall – cut in 1959 when Chris Barber was enjoying a hit with a remake of Sidney Bechet's "Petite Fleur", which provided for a nice opportunity to get Hall back in the studio for a date under the same name! The record's got a lot more freedom than some of Hall's earlier work – with a few key longer tracks that expand upon the trad styles of earlier records, and some exceptional production that brings out the best strengths in all players. Hall's working here with Vic Dickenson, Ellis Larkins, Emmett Berry, Milt Hinton, and Jimmie Crawford – and titles include a great 9 minute "Ellington Medley", an 8 minute original titled "Off The Road", and the tunes "Don't Give Me Sympathy", "Adam & Evie", "Clarinet Marmalade", "Edmond Hall Blues", and "Petite Fleur".

A rare set of Billy Strayhorn tracks recorded in Paris by Alan Douglas. The tracks are incredibly haunting, and mostly feature Strayhorn's solo piano with spare backing by Parisian bassist Michel Goudret. There are a a few short moments on the record that add backing voices or strings – but even in those moments, Strayhorn's tender tentative piano is right up front in the mix. The whole thing's a treasure, and a rare peek at the solo talent that made Ellington's band one of the best. Titles include "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing", "Lush Life", "Strange Feeling", and "Chelsea Bridge". LP, Vinyl record album

New EmbryoOpal (180 gram pressing with bonus CD – and bonus track) ... LP
United Artists/Mirumir (Russia), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the great space rock records of the 70s – the sublime debut from Embryo – a group who were a lot more unique than most of their contemporaries! Embryo's almost more of a jazz fusion combo than a progressive rock one – and some of their later efforts have them working with key jazz figures on the European scene, in a mode that's definitely pretty far-reaching overall. This record's maybe a bit more down to earth, with slightly shorter songs and more focus on fuzzy guitars – yet the overall approach still points to the skies with a really well-fused sort of energy, and this strong sense of imagination that really packs a lot into a small amount of space. Titles include "Opal", "You Don't Know What's Happening", "Revolution", "Glockenspiel", "Got No Time", "Call", "End Of Soul", "People From Out Of Space". Includes the bonus track "You Better Have Some Fun". LP, Vinyl record album

A great little record, filled with loads of cross-cultural influences that make for one of the most exotic Herbie Mann albums of the 60s! The group's billed as the Afro-Jazz Sextet– but has a strong Latin vibe as well – a bit of an echo of the experiments Herbie Mann did with Latin jazz previously on labels like Verve and United Artists – but given a bit more of the Atlantic-era punch here as well! The group features some wonderful vibes from John Rae – whose tones ring out beautifully on some of the best numbers – plus a mix of Latin and African-styled percussion from Ray Barretto, Olatunjii, and Ray Mantilla – who really make the record cook. A few tunes feature an added trumpet group, and the rest are mostly just flute and percussion – on titles that include "St Thomas", "Walkin", "Uhuru", "High Life", and "Sawa Sawa De".

A heavy heavy set from the legendary Alphonse Mouzon – one of his drum-heavy funk records for Blue Note! Alphonse has a style that's a bit different than some of his other work here – very direct, with plenty of soul undercurrents – although definitely some of the rockish elements that also made Mouzon a key crossover player in the fusion years! The album was Mouzon's first, and in some ways may be one of his best – and has a strong jazz component, thanks to work from sidemen who include Sonny Fortune and Buddy Terry on reeds, and the great Larry Willis on acoustic and electric piano. Alphonze wrote, arranged, and conducted all the tracks – and titles include "Crying Angels", "Funky Finger", "Spring Water", and "Sunflower". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy's working here in trio formation – shifting between bop and ballad modes with a trio that includes Eddie McFadden on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums (Art Blakey makes an appearance on the kit on one track too!) The sound is chunky, unbridled, and a lot more dangerous than Smith in his later Blue Note recordings – a mode that really shows the raw power of the Hammond at its best!

Great duets between Wadada Leo Smith and Jack DeJohnette – two artists who both share roots in Chicago, united here for one of their most powerful recordings in recent years! DeJohnette's drums are really set free here – as melodic as they are rhythmic, and providing great counterpoint to Smith's well-blown lines on trumpet and flugelhorn – very focused and evocative, with a proud, full sound that really lives up to the title of the record. All tunes are originals by Smith, and titles include "America (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Rabia's Unconditional Love", "Ed Blackwell The Blue Mountain Sun Drummer", "John Brown's Fort", and "Red Trumpet".
