Small FacesSmall Faces (Decca) (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Decca (UK), 1966. Used 2CD ... $15.99
There's nobody like The Small Faces at their best – as you'll hear from the group's killer 1966 album on Decca! The style here is tight, right, and fully-formed straight from the start – easily one of the best UK 60s hybrids of American influences from R&B, garage rock, and early psych – sorted out perfectly by a quartet of lads who really know what they're doing. And the album's maybe even more focused than the group's later album on Immediate – as here, The Small Faces are all business, and the right kind of gritty – just fantastic stuff that's fresh and exciting even today! Titles include "Shake", "Come On Children", "You Better Believe It", "IT's Too Late", "One Night Stand", "Sorry She's Mine", "Sha La La Lee", and "Own Up Time". 2CD version is filled with great stuff – the full mono mix of the album, plus bonus tracks that include "Patterns", "Grow Your Own", "What's A Matter Baby", and "I've Got Mine" – and then a full bonus CD of 14 more tracks – all strange mixes and alternate versions of album tracks!

New John GraasJazz-Lab 2 ... LP
Decca, 1955. Good+ ... $9.99
A classic session from the second wave of LA cool jazz of the 50s – headed up by French horn player John Graas, a player as important to his instrument as Gerry Mulligan was to the baritone sax! Like Mulligan, Graas was working with an instrument that you might normally think of as clunky – but he managed to swing with an incredibly fluid style – bringing the French horn into jazz with amazing skill, and working with groups of top-shelf LA players in a tightly arranged style that crackled with energy! Graas is working here in a slightly experimental "lab" style – mostly in smaller groups than some of his other recortdings, with a varied cast of characters including Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones, Jack Montrose, Paul Moer, Howard Roberts, Jimmy Giuffre and others. 8 tracks in all, including "Love Me Or Leave Me", "Cluster", "Mood", "Three Line Blues", "Chuggin'", "Trio", "Canon-Friar" and "Be My Guest".

New Wardell Gray & Dexter GordonChase ... CD
Decca/Giants Of Jazz, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $8.99
A classic meeting of two powerful tenors on the west coast – Wardell Gray and Dexter Gordon – locked together beautifully in this seminal recording from an early Gene Norman concert! The format is loose and free – a key bop illustration of what the tenor sax could offer, when set in the hands of giants like this – and each track runs for an entire side of the record, with mighty bold solos from both Gray and Gordon, blowing head to head in the "chase" – plus trumpet from Conte Candoli, piano from Bob Tucker, bass from Don Bagley, and drums from Chico Hamilton. The album only features two long tracks – "The Chase" and "The Steeplechase" – but both of those are more than enough! This CD also includes 11 other tracks from the time period. CD

Lionel HamptonGene Norman Presents Just Jazz (10 inch LP) ... LP
Decca, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
One of the few albums to really get at the genius of the Lionel Hampton group at the height of their powers – their crowd-pleasing antics that were always a big draw for live audiences! This set catches Hamp and a great group at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium – playing on long tracks with plenty of cool flourishes and really strong standout moments – pyrotechnic throughout, even in the mellower moments! Hampton is on piano, vibes, and drums – and other players include Willie Smith on alto, Charlie Shaves on trumpet, and Barney Kessel on guitar.. Tunes include "Star Dust" and "The Man I Love". LP, Vinyl record album

OsibisaOsibisa ... LP
Decca, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
Although Osibisa were one of the most successful of the London-based Afro-funk groups, they were also one of the best. This cool first album is filled with (as the label says) "criss cross rhythms that explode with happiness". Translated, that means that the record's got lots of nice cuts that have African percussion, electric funk rhythm, and a fairly joyous groove. Tracks include "Akwaaba", "Oranges", "The Dawn", "Think About The People", and the groovy "Music For Gong Gong". LP, Vinyl record album

John Robinson Pierce/Max MathewsMusic From Mathematics – Played By IBM 7090 Computer & Digital To Sound Transducer ... LP
Decca, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $34.99
Really wonderful sounds from an early IBM computer – and a set that's quite different from both the academic and popular electronic albums of the 60s! You can really hear the programming at work here – the careful choices as to which sounds come out when, in a sequence that's more prescribed than played – which gives the whole thing an even spookier feel – as if there were no need for humans at all! As you might expect from the time, there's electronic renditions of "classics" like "Frere Jacques", "Joy To The World" and "Bicycle Built For Two", and then a bunch of newer compositions, primarily by scientists at the Bell Telephone Labs. 18 tracks in all, also includes "Variations On Timbre & Attack", "Theme & Variations" and "Noise Study".

George RussellNew York New York & Jazz In The Space Age ... LP
Decca/MCA, Late 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A 70s issue of 2 seminal sides from George Russell, originally recorded in the 50s. The first, New York New York is a wonderful album from George Russell – and a refreshing change from his overly-academic modernist work! The session's an unusual one – a musical portrait of New York City, performed with an all-star cast that includes John Coltrane, Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Phil Woods, Benny Golson, Max Roach, and Hal McKusick – all working together to paint tones on the tunes that George has crafted to set up his scene of New York in the 50s. Most importantly, though, Jon Hendricks acts as the narrator of the album – talking and scatting in hipster mode, laying out a bit of beat rapportage about the Big Apple, all done in a very cool 50s style that's a bit different from his own vocal work. Titles include "Manhattan", "Big City Blues", "Manhattan-Rico", and "A Helluva Town". And don't let the title of the second, Jazz In The Space Age, mislead you into thinking it's a record of bachelor pad musi. The set's one of Russell's finest recordings of the 50s, and it features some wonderful work in odd tones and scales, executed by another awesome cast of players, including Bill Evans, Paul Bley, Hal McKusick, Bob Brookmeyer, and David Young. An essential chapter in Russell's career, and nice to have in any form. Titles include "Chromatic Universe (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Dimensions", "Waltz From Outer Space", and "The Lydiot".

Bacharach and moog – what a combination! The album features moogy versions of Burt's biggest hits of the 60s – played in a weird and moody style by Christopher Scott, and presented with a very good sense of Bacharach's original timing and poise for the tunes. The combination shouldn't work, but it does – and a whole new sound is pulled out of little gems that include "What's New Pussycat?", "April Fools", "I Say A Little Prayer", "Look Of Love", and "Wives & Lovers".

The album includes the vocal tracks "Imitiation Of Life" by Earl Grant and "Soon I Will Be Done With The Trouble Of The World" by Lillian Hayman – and the instrumental tunes "Break Up", "Rejected", "Disappointed", "Lovely", and "Secrets".

WhoLive at Leeds ... LP

A landmark live set from The Who – a record that offers the group with a blistering intensity that blows away all their other studio albums of the time! Although offered during the Who's Tommy-era expansion into broader themes and more complicated instrumentation, the album's a real return to basics – and features a guitar-heavy version of the group performing a number of older rock n roll classics like "Summertime Blues", "Shakin All Over", and "Young Man Blues" – plus really extended jamming takes on their own "My Generation" and "Magic Bus", and a searing 2 minute take on "Substitute" that's probably everything you ever need to know about The Jam!

A classic greatest hits package from The Who – one that had almost as much life as any of their major full length albums, and a set that served to re-introduce new audiences to the group after the success of Tommy and Who's Next! Most of the tracks here predate those albums – pulled from the group's earliest years, and awash in mod rhythms, tight guitars, and lyrics that are quite edgey – even in the format of a two-minute pop tune. Titles include "Boris The Spider", "Happy Jack", "Pictures Of Lily", "My Generation", "The Seeker", "I Can't Explain", "The Kids Are Alright", "Anyway Anyhow Anywhere", "A Legal Matter", "Substitute", "I'm A Boy", and "Pinball Wizard".

WhoTommy ... CD
Decca/MCA, 1970. Used ... $2.99
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park with this one – and pushed the group way way past the simpler songs the were recording just a year before – into this deeply introspective territory, spun out both in the album's words and music. The Tommy tale's been well told many times over the years – so we won't bother with the full narrative – but just let us say that it's hard to go wrong with this one, an essential item in any collection of adventurous rock – classic or otherwise. Titles include "The Acid Queen", "It's A Boy", "Sally Simpson", "Miracle Cure", "Pinball Wizard", "Do You Think It's Alright", "Cousin Kevin", "Christmas", "Tommy's Holiday Camp", "I'm Free", and "We're Not Gonna Take It".

A nice little 50s album by Heywood – one that brings together a series of late 40s recordings that all showcase Eddie's uniquely rhythmic approach to the keys! Like Garner, another genius of space and timing, Heywood's real magic is not the songs he chooses, but the way he chops them up and lays them out. Most tunes have additional instrumentation added to Eddie's trio – with players that include James Powell on alto, Dick Vance on trumpet, Marshal Royal on alto, and Vic Dickenson on trombone. Titles include "Yesterdays", "Begin The Beguine", "Lover Man", "Pom Pom", and "Who's Sorry Now". LP, Vinyl record album

New Sammy Davis Jr & Carmen McRaeBoy Meets Girl/Porgy & Bess (with bonus track) ... CD
Decca/Verve, 1957/1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The complete Decca recordings of Sammy Davis Jr & Carmen McRae – a duet that's not always that strongly remembered from the time, but who cut two great albums for the label! Given Sammy's great talent for personal interaction on the stage, as heard often on his key Rat Pack recordings, he's a real natural for this sort of duet mode – as he manages to talk and sing his way through the tunes beautifully, really opening up Carmen a heck of a lot, and getting her past the staid, serious mode of most of her 50s albums. The CD features the full track list from the album Boy Meets Girl, an especially nice batch of tunes that has Sammy and Carmen trading lines with ease – plus the tracks from Porgy & Bess, Decca's entry into the market that had many late 50s labels trying to issue their own versions of Gershwin's score to cash in on the film at the time. The Porgy material is a bit straighter, but still nicely done – especially when Sammy's in the lead – and the CD includes a bonus single by the pair, never before issued on LP! The notes are great, and really go into detail on the sessions – and the CD features 23 tracks in all, including "I Go For You", "Summertime", "I Got Plenty O Nuttin", "It Ain't Necessarily So", "Tea For Two", "Happy To Make Your Acquaintance", "Cheek To Cheek", "You're The Top", "People Will Say We're In Love", and "Two Sleepy People".

New Peggy LeeFabulous ... LP
Decca, 1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Peggy's more obscure albums for the Decca label – and one of the greatest ones too! The album nicely breaks the set format of some of Peggy's others for Decca – and offers tunes in a variety of different settings, in a style that shows the full range of Peggy's talents in the post-swing years. Arrangers include Victor Young, Sy Oliver, Dave Barbour, and Joseph Lilley – and one track even features some "heel dancing" by Sammy Davis Jr! The range of work is really great – moving from jazzy and swinging one minute, to lush and boozy the next – and Peggy's vocals, as always, wonderfully adapt to each change with surprising ease and a delightful mix of modes! Titles include "You Let My Love Get Cold", "Johnny Guitar", "Me", "Wrong Joe", "Do I Love You", "Autumn In Rome", "I Belong To You", and "Wrong Wrong Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album

New OsibisaWoyaya ... LP
Decca, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
These early Osibisa records always used to be fairly common years back – perhaps because they were always a bit too hippy dippy and loose for the older funk crowd. But now, in today's blunted groove culture, they seem to have found a new appreciation for their trippy Afro funk style, and their nice laidback groove. This album includes a great version of Roland Kirk's "Spirits Up Above", plus "Beautiful 7", "Move On", "Survival", and "Rabiatu" – all of which have the band's trademark Afro funk groove. Nice Roger Dean gatefold cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

New Walter Raim ConceptEndless Possibilities ... LP
MTA/Decca, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavenly work from The Walter Raim Concept – a warmly-tinged vocal group with a sound that's somewhere between Spanky & Our Gang and Singers Unlimited! A few years earlier, and the group might have just been a stock "chorus vocals" sort of ensemble – but here, at the dawn of the 70s, they're recording with a style that has a fair bit of Sunshine Pop touches too – a mode that reminds us a lot of the Alan Copeland Singers album on A&M, thanks to a nice undercurrent of groove in the mix! Singers are both male and female – coming together with a sweet style that's a bit like The Free Design, but a bit more grown up too – and the titles include some originals by Raim, plus a few other well-chosen tunes. Tracks include "Endless Possibilities", "It's Always Somewhere Else", "A Woman Looking For Love", "City Of Grey", "Those Beautiful People", "Nice Lady", "I'll Never Fall In Love Again", and "I Hear Bells".

New George RussellNew York, New York ... LP
Decca, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from George Russell – and a refreshing change from his overly-academic modernist work! The session's an unusual one – a musical portrait of New York City, performed with an all-star cast that includes John Coltrane, Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Phil Woods, Benny Golson, Max Roach, and Hal McKusick – all working together to paint tones on the tunes that George has crafted to set up his scene of New York in the 50s. Most importantly, though, Jon Hendricks acts as the narrator of the album – talking and scatting in hipster mode, laying out a bit of beat rapportage about the Big Apple, all done in a very cool 50s style that's a bit different from his own vocal work. Titles include "Manhattan", "Big City Blues", "Manhattan-Rico", and "A Helluva Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has light marks, but plays well – and cover is nice.)

New Jimmy ScottEverybody's Somebody's Fool ... CD
Decca/Verve, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from a young Jimmy Scott – a great collection that brings together rare singles for Decca, Coral, and Brunswick – plus a few tracks that were never issued at the time! Although Jimmy's work has become famous in recent years – thanks to much-needed support towards the later stretch of his life – he seems to sound even more compelling on these early sides – hanging in a sublime space between male and female vocal traditions, and often backed by groups that bring a bit of a modern flavor to the music. We'd almost say that we dig these sides more than Jimmy's better-known work for Savoy in the 50s – and backings are by the groups of Lionel Hampton, Billy Taylor, and Lucky Thompson – all artists who really keep jazz at the forefront. Titles include "Wheel Of Fortune", "I Wish I Knew", "I've Been A Fool", "Come What May", "They Say You Cry", "Alone With A Memory", "When You Surrender", "Why Was I Born", and "The Bluest Blues". CD

New Leith Stevens/Shorty RogersJazz Themes From Two Great Movies (Wild One/Private Hell 36) ... CD
Decca/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1953/1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from one the the most overlooked soundtrack composers of his generation – and 2 very jazzy scores, reissued beautifully back to back on one CD! Although The Wild One was Marlon Brando's famous film of biker violence in rural California, Stevens gave the movie a wickedly jazzy score – one that might have been more at home in a crime or detective film at the time, but which also seems to pick up a real sense of "drive" from all the biking scenes as well! Music is both by a Shorty Rogers group with John Graas, Jimmy Knepper, Bob Shank, Bill Perkins, Jimmy Giuffre, and Herb Geller – and by the Leith Stevens All Stars, which features many of the same players under Stevens' leadership. The CD features a total of 16 numbers from the film – way more than we've seen on any other issue of the material – with titles that include "Chino", "Windswept", "Hot Blood", "Scramble", "Hotshoe", and "Beetle". Added to this are 9 more numbers from the film Private Hell 36 – a mid 50s vehicle for Ida Lupino, directed by a young Don Siegel, and also featuring Lupino herself on piano and vocals on one track! The style and the group here is very similar – led by Stevens, and featuring Shorty Rogers, Pete Candoli, John Graas, Bob Enevoldsen, Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper, Lennie Niehaus, and Bud Shank. Lupino sings on the moody "Didn't You Know" – and other tracks include "Daddy Long Legs", "Easy Mood", "Havana Interlude", and "Dance Of The Lilliputian". CD
