After having a huge huge huge hit with "The In Crowd" in the mid 60s, Dobie Gray laid low for quite some time, before coming back big with the title to this one – the spacey "Drift Away", one of the huge AM radio hits of the mid 70s. The style's quite different than Dobie's other work, and the record was produced in Nashville with a strong hit sound. Other titles include "LA Lady", "Eddie's Song", "Caddo Queen", "City Stars", "Lay Back", and "Rockin Chair". LP, Vinyl record album

A rare bit of funk from Clyde McPhatter! "Mixed Up Cup" has a killer break on the intro – nice drums, all tight and spare, with a cool sound of water being poured over the groove! Strings come in, and Clyde's vocals sweeten it up a bit – but the track has a weird groove that's almost rocksteady, which makes for a really unique feel! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Peppermint RainbowWill You Be Staying After Sunday ... LP
Decca, 1969. Very Good- .... $4.99
A wonderful bit of sunshine pop from the very obscure Peppermint Rainbow – a male/female harmony group with a sound that was a lot like the Mamas & Papas – blending folk rock and sweet pop into a really sunny groove! The album's worth it alone for the massive title track – "Will You Be Staying After Sunday", a tune that's got a sad undercurrent that seems to single-handedly dismantle all of the sexual freedom offered by the late 60s with a one sentence confession of the emotionality that was also attached. Other tracks are also nice – and include "Don't Wake Me Up In The Morning Michael", "Run Like The Devil", "I Found Out I Was A Woman", and "Walking In Different Circles" – most of which were written by arranger/producer Paul Leka.

Jeri SouthernYou Better Go Now ... LP
Decca, Early 50s. Very Good- .... $7.99
An early album that compiles material that Jeri Southern recorded in her first few years for Decca Records – tunes done in the dreamy, romantic style that was one of Southern's key calling cards in the 50s! The style is never too sleepy, nor too commercial – and instead, Jeri's got a great way of putting over a moody late nite tune without resorting to common cliches. Backings are by Sy Oliver, Camarata, Sonny Burke, and others – but the album's got a nicely unified feel, thanks to Jeri's strong vocals in the lead. Torchy stuff, but in an uncommon way – and with titles that include "When I Fall In Love", "Give Me Time", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Remind Me", "That Ole Devil Called Love", and "What Good Am I Without You".

Charlie VenturaGene Norman Presents The Charlie Ventura Septet In Concert 1949 ... LP
Decca/MCA, 1949. Very Good+ .... $2.99
From bop to swing – and everything in between! The album's an 80s reissue of a classic performance by Charlie Ventura – recorded in Pasadena in 1949, with his septet that included Benny Green on trombone, Boots Mussuli on alto, and vocalese bits by Jackie & Roy! Ventura was a key link in two jazz traditions of the late 40s, and with help from Green and Mussuli, he really cuts things up on the set. Jackie & Roy sing on "East Of Suez", "Euphoria", and "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" – and other tunes include "If I Had You", "Fine & Dandy", and "How High The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

New John GraasJazzmantics/Coup De Graas ... CD
Mercury/Decca/Lonehill (Spain), 1956/1957. Used .... Just Sold Out!
2 great sessions by one of the most unique talents in jazz – 50s French Horn player John Graas, an amazing soloist, songwriter, and arranger! The first 9 tracks on the set are from the album Jazzmantics – a 1957 Decca session that features Graas working with a nonet that features a shifting cast of members that includes Art Pepper, Conte Candoli, Shelly Manne, Bob Cooper, Jack Montrose, and Jack Sheldon. The album is one of the best examples of the 2nd wave of LA cool jazz from the time – and also one of the most obscure Decca sessions of the 50s. Titles include "Flip Tip", "ID", "Petite Poem", "Jazz Overture", "Jazz Chorale", "Free & Easy", and "Will Success Spoil Rock n Roll?" Next up is the Mercury session Coup De Graas – an equally great batch of west coast chamber jazz, and one that's far better than you'd guess from it's punning name. Art Pepper and Conte Candoli are again key parts of the group – making for a wonderfully sharp horn sound – and titles include "Van Nuys Indeed", "Land Of Broken Toys", "Swing Nicely", "Blues Street", and "Rogersesque". CD also features one more bonus track – "Cordova" – from the album French Horn In Jazz. CD

New Jazz StudioJazz Studio Vol 3 & 4 – Complete Sessions ... CD
Decca/Lonehill (Spain), 1954/1955. Used .... Just Sold Out!
The 3rd and 4th sessions in Decca's excellent Jazz Studio series – both of them well-crafted chamber jazz sets with a cool swinging mid 50s LA groove! Jazz Studio 3 is a tight set of chamber jazz tracks headed by John Graas – working here with a very strong set of players that includes Charlie Mariano, Jimmy Giuffre, Zoot Sims, Larry Bunker, Gerry Mulligan, Howard Roberts, and Conte Candoli – in groupings that include varying 5, 7, and 9 piece ensembles. Tracks have many of the clever west coast chamber jazz twists and turns – but the sharper-edged horn work of Sims and Mariano keep things moving along with a nice edge, and a surprisingly soulful solo feel – especially on the longer tunes. Titles include "Rogeresque", "6/4 & Even", "Mulliganesque", and "Jazz Sections From Symphony No 1 In F Minor". Jazz Studio 4 is a rare session as a leader by trumpeter Jack Millman – one that's based around his own compositions, and which a large group of west coast players alongside some lesser-known 50s talents! Players include Fred Aguirre, Lin Halliday, Artie Anto, Mike Pacheco, Curtis Counce, Herb Geller, Jimmy Giuffre, Howard Roberts, and Don Friedman – playing arrangements of Millman tunes by Shorty Rogers, Jimmy Giuffre, Jack Montrose, and Pete Rugolo. Tracks are short, but have wonderfully constructed horn passages – as well as some very nice use of Latin percussion – and titles include "Tom & Jerry", "Bolero De Mendez", "Groove Juice", "Pink Lady", "The Turk", and "Bambi".

New Louis ArmstrongSatchmo At Symphony Hall – The Complete Performances ... CD
Decca/Verve, 1947. Used 2CDs .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic live date from Satchmo – and expanded to include the complete performances on that legendary night at Boston's Symphony Hall – for the first time ever! Recorded in November of 1947 and originally released in '51, it's never before been issued with both the first and second sets that night. There's also a number of great tunes here that were released before in edited versions, but fully presented here. It's such wonderful stuff – both as a top-shelf document of this period of American jazz – and as a brilliant example of Satcho's charming stage presence. His trumpet and solo vocals are well captured, and you can here up humming along on the instrumentals, too. The players at this point who are All Stars, indeed, include Jack Teagarden on vocals and trombone, Barney Bigard on clarinet, Dick Cary on piano, Arvell Shaw on bass, and Sid Catlett on drums – plus some great vocals by Velma Middleton. 29 songs on 2CDs – in a hardback package with a great booklet – and featuring "When It's Sleepy Time Down South", "Stars Fell On Alabama", "Body And Soul", "Steak Face", "Back O'Town Blues", "St James Infirmary", "Mop Mop", "Jack Armstrong Blues", "That's My Desire", "C Jam Blues", "Baby Won't You Please Come Home", "Mahogany Hall Stomp" and more – many previously unreleased!

New Chico HamiltonSweet Smell Of Success ... LP
Decca, 1957. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful bit of cinematic jazz from the 50s – played by the Chico Hamilton group as part of the soundtrack! The combo was a key part of the LA scene at the time, but are oddly featured as a regular club act in the movie's New York setting – but we'll gladly forgive that geographic error, given that the music on the set is so great. The quality's a bit like some of the Hamilton Quintet work on World Pacific – but there's a slightly freer, more urgent feel here too – work that's sometimes somewhat driving, and beautifully blended from the guitar of John Pisano, clarinet of Paul Horn, cello of Fred Katz, piano of Carson Smith, and drums from Chico. Side one features a lot of short incidental cuts – like "Susan", "Cheek To Chico", "Jam", and "Night Beat" – and side 2 is an extended "Concerto Of Jazz Themes From The Soundtrack Of Sweet Smell Of Success".

A pivotal album in the career of Peggy Lee, and one that marked her turning from a singer of pop and swing material, to a sensitive interpreter of jazz material. The album's one of the best-ever by Peggy, and features the kind of material that's not easy to find amidst the bulk of her pop-oriented work – a moving set of ballads and torchy numbers, recorded in small-combo fashion, in a style that's similar to some of Chris Connor's later Bethlehem work. The combo includes Cootie Chesterfield on trumpet, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Max Wayne on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums. A real treasure – with titles like "A Woman Alone With The Blues", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "Easy Living", and "Black Coffee". This reissue features all 12 tracks from the full-length LP. CD

Although Osibisa were one of the most successful of the London-based Afro-funk groups, they were also one of the best.

New Dave PikeManhattan Latin ... LP
Decca, 1964. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real lost chapter in the career of vibist Dave Pike – an obscure one-off Latin session recorded for Decca in the mid 60s! The album was done in the years between Pike's first few early jazz sides and his later tripped-out sessions for MPS and Vortex – and features Dave leading a groovy combo that has a really playful approach to the work. Players include trumpeter Dave Burns, flautist Hubert Laws, guitarist Atilla Zoller, and a young Chick Corea – as well as Latin instrumentalists that include Willie Bobo, Patato Valdez, and Israel Cachao Lopez. The tunes include a number of really strong originals that push the format of such a set – stretching past simple Latinized cover tunes, and displaying the ear for modal and global grooves that would mark some of Pike's best later years! Titles include "Dream Garden", "Latin Blues", "Montuna Orita", "Aphrodite", "Not A Tear", "Mambo Dinero", and "Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

New George RussellNew York New York & Jazz In The Space Age ... LP
Decca/MCA, Late 50s. Used 2LP Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

New WhoTommy ... LP
Decca, 1970. Used 2LP Trifold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Jack Sheldon/John Graas/Westlake College QuintetCollege Goes To Jazz/International Premiere In Jazz/French Horn Jazz ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1953/1956/1958. Used .... $11.99
The naming of this CD's a bit unusual – as it's issued under the name of trumpeter Jack Sheldon, who's only featured on 3 of its 22 tracks – but that's hardly a problem for us, as the bulk of the work features arrangements by the great John Graas! The first 11 tracks on the set from a 1956 Decca session by The Westlake College Quintet, a hipper group than you'd expect – especially since they're all college kids! John Graas found these guys playing at Westlake College, and he rightly thought they had a sound that was well worth recording for Decca – not surprising, since these guys have a similar chamber modern groove to some of Graas' own work for the label. The ensemble features tenor, trombone, bass, drums, and piano, the last of which is played by Dick Grove, probably the only player in the group who went onto become a more famous name. The titles include a lot of Graas originals – including "Ghost Talk", "Westlake Bounce", "Theme", "Mood", and "La Paz". Next up are the Sheldon tracks – 3 titles from the West Coast All Star Ninet album International Premier In Jazz – led by Sheldon, and featuring Graas, Art Pepper, Buddy Collette, Bill Perkins, and Larry Bunker – all working through a 3-part suite entitled "Jazz Chaconne No 1". Last up are 8 tunes from a 1953 album for Kapp – entitled French Horn Jazz – and featuring John Graas alternating between an octet that features Jimmy Giuffre, Shorty Rogers, Shelly Manne and Bud Shank, and a quintet with Jack Montrose, Gerald Wiggins, Walter Clark, and Larry Bunker. Tunes on that set include "Lady Like", "Egypt", "Argyles", "Blue Haze", "Pyramid", "6/4 Trend", "Not Exactly", "Cordova", "Be My Guest", "Frappe", "Bananera", and "Sequence". CD

New John GraasJazz-Lab 1 & 2 ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1956/1957. Used .... Just Sold Out!
Two classic sessions from the second wave of LA cool jazz of the 50s – both 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! Both albums on the set were recorded for Decca – and feature Graas working in a slightly experimental "lab" style – with larger groupings that include well-suited LA soloists like Herb Geller, Bob Enevoldsen, Dave Pell, Herb Geller, Marty Paich, Howard Roberts, Jack Montrose, and Bill Perkins. The set features all 18 tracks from the Jazz Labs 1 & 2 sessions – plus 3 more from the French Horn jazz album for Kapp – a total of 21 titles that include "Canon Ball", "Friar Tuck", "Minor Call", "Le Chasse", "Lady Like", "Trio", "Chuggin", "Mood", "Cluster", "Softly The Horn Blows", and "Jazz Sections From Symphony 1 In F Minor".

New Billie HolidayBillie Holiday – Ultimate Collection (2CD & DVD Set) ... CD
Verve, Late 30s/1940s/1950s. Used 2CD & DVD .... Just Sold Out!
Way way more than a greatest hits collection from Billie Holiday – an overstuffed package that features lots and lots of extra bits too! The first 2 CDs in the set feature 42 tracks pulled from Billie's complete recording career – not just bits from Decca and Verve, but also Columbia, Commodore, and other labels. But let's be honest – you can usually track down Billie's hits in a variety of other, cheaper packages on the market. The real charm of this one is the bonus DVD, which features 10 classic performances by Billie taken from TV and film – of tunes that include "Saddest Tale", "The Blues Are Brewin", "Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans", "St Louis Blues", "What A Little Moonlight Can Do", "Fine & Mellow", and "Billie's Blues". Plus, that DVD also features bonus audio performances of 5 more tracks, a 1955 audio rehearsal, a 1956 interview with Mike Wallace on Night Beat, and audio interviews with a number of players who worked with Billie in the 50s. Added to that is a complete recording history of Billie on record, and a timeline with hundreds of images and interactive features! So think of this as a DVD with loads of bonus bits – and one that just happens to include a 42 track, 2CD set of Billie's work on CD! CD

New Jazz StudioJazz Studio Vol 5 & 6 – Complete Sessions ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1957. Used .... Just Sold Out!
The last 2 sessions in Decca's Jazz Studio series – both of them pretty darn unique! Jazz Studio 5 was put together under the leadership of arranger Ralph Burns – one of our favorite jazz arrangers ever! As proven by some of his impeccable work crafting larger backings for artists on the Verve and Clef labels, Burns had an approach that was quite different than most of his contemporaries. He worked in a mode that seemed pretty standard at the outset – with an approach to backdrops that worked in broad colors of sound and tone – but he also had a talent for putting in strange modern twists, little surprises, and other embellishments that never detracted from the soloist, and instead seemed to keep them on their toes, forcing them to really come up with some great stuff during their time at the recording. You'll hear plenty of that kind of action going on here – in one of Burns' rarest sets ever, recorded with a group that includes Billy Byers, Joe Newman, Dave Schildkraut, Herbie Mann, and Milt Hinton. Mann's particularly great, and plays a number of horns with ease – and titles include "Cool Cat On A Hot Tin Roof", "What Am I Here For", "I'll Be Around", "Jazz Club USA", and "South Gonzales Street Parade. Jazz Studio 6 is an equally enigmatic set of modern jazz – recorded by the Amram-Barrow Quartet – an obscure group led by tenor saxophonist George Barrow and horn player David Amram, the latter of whom would go onto great fame in the 60s and 70s for his groundbreaking arrangements, soundtrack work, and world/jazz experiments! At this point, Amram's a young modernist with some very fresh ideas – and contributes some wonderful original tunes to the session with a moody east coast style that almost has traces of the Mingus camp – particularly the work of Jimmy Knepper and Pepper Adams. George Barrow's tone on the tenor is really tremendous – sharp and soulful, reminding us a bit of the freshness that Hank Mobley brought to some of his early sessions in the 50s, but with less of a hardbop fire. The rhythm in the group is by Arthur Phipps on bass and Al Harewood on drums (Amram plays a bit of piano as well) – and titles include "City Talk", "Someday Morning Will Come", "Somewhere Along The Way", "Phipps Quipps", "Lobo Nocho", and "I Love You".

New Mark MurphyRah ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Used .... Out Of Stock
Great early work by Mark Murphy – a set that's different than the cool breeziness of his 70s work, and done with an approach that's a lot hipper than most of his 60s contemporaries! Ernie Wilkins handles the arrangements, and there's a rollicking soul jazz groove here that's a bit unusual for Murphy – but which makes for a nice change from his earlier work for Decca or Capitol. As with most of Mark's records, the tunes are very well-chosen, and go way past the obvious – a set list that includes Fran Landesman's great "Stoppin The Clock", Jon Hendricks' lyrics to Horace Silver's "Doodlin", Annie Ross' famous vocalese version of "Twisted", and hip takes on jazz standards "Green Dolphin Street", "Milestones", and "Out Of This World". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Bill Grauer Productions pressing, with microphone logo. Cover is worn, with staining, an ink stamp, a bit of sticker residue, and tape on the seams.)
