Milt JacksonFor Someone I Love – Milt Jackson & Big Brass ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A surprisingly nice pairing – the vibes of Milt Jackson and some larger horn backings that fall heavy on the trumpet and trombone side of the spectrum! The sound's not nearly as heavy or hokey as you'd expect – thanks to arrangements by Melba Liston – and the horns do a nice job of setting a scene that lets Milt's vibes sneak in and out with effortless ease – coloring things with a great one, and a very rhythmic feel. The album's worth it for one track alone – the really great "Bossa Bags", which grooves with a sound that's everything you'd expect from the title! Other tracks include "Extraordinary Blues", "Save Your Love For Me", "For Someone I Love", "Days Of Wine & Roses", and "Just Waiting". LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label Orpheum pressing. Great heavy glossy cover!)

Charles MingusThree Or Four Shades Of Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
The three or four shades of the blues here are all pretty darn deep – as Charles Mingus is returning to the soulful gospel-influenced mode he swung big in the early 60s! The record's something of a later predecessor of the classics Blues & Roots for Atlantic and Mingus (x5) for Impulse – and the style is slightly less dramatic, but still quite steeped in soulful explorations that feature plenty of notes from the bluer side of the spectrum! Players include George Coleman and Ricky Ford on tenor, Jack Walrath on trumpet, and Larry Coryell on guitar – and titles include new takes on "Better Git Hit In Your Soul" and "Goodbye Porkpie Hat" – plus"Nobody Knows", "Noddin Ya Head Blues", and "Three Or Four Shades Of Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, a few moisture stains, and a small split on the top seam.)

New Steve MarcusCount's Rock Band ... LP
Vortex, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet saxy grooves from reedman Steve Marcus – working here in a psychedelic approach to funky jazz! The album's easily one of Steve's greatest moments – and has Marcus playing both acoustic and electric saxes, in a lineup that also includes funky guitar from Larry Coryell, piano and harpsichord from Mike Nock, bass from Chris Hills, drums from Bob Moses, and even a bit of accordion from Dominic Cortese! The sound is definitely jazz, but there's plenty of influence from the rock side of the spectrum – yet never in a too-jamming rock fusion mode – always with the same sort of soulful, funky feel you'd get on records from the time by Tom Scott. Titles include "C'Est Ca", "Theresa's Blues", "Scarborough Fair", "Ooh Baby", and "Back Street Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

New Big Sam MarowitzSounds In The Night ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album of late night sax and organ numbers – featuring the enigmatic alto player Big Sam Marowitz, paired with arrangements that make some nice use of the thinner end of the Hammond organ spectrum! The instrumentation also has a nice dose of electric guitar and bongos – all moving very very slow, with a moody and dark sort of feel that goes way beyond the simple cliches of other albums of this nature. Sam's tone on the horn is really great too – leading us to wonder if he wasn't another jazz player working under a "nom de date" – and titles include "Sounds In The Night", "Blue Twilight", "Summertime", "Moon Nocturne", "Feelin The Blues", and "Warm Valley". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

New Lee KonitzAn Image – Lee Konitz With Strings ... LP
Verve, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare "with strings" session for altoist Lee Konitz – recorded back in his great years with Verve, set to wonderful arrangements from a young Bill Russo! The style here is a bit darker and more spare than some of the other albums of this type from the time – and Russo brings plenty of somber tones to the record – not in a bad way, but in a style that lets Lee's horn be the most strongly redeeming feature of the session – often stepping forth in relatively unfettered mode, with many of the strings at the lower end of the sound spectrum. Titles include the extended "An Image Of Man", plus "What's New", "Blues For Our Children", "The Daffodil's Sake", and "Music For Alto Saxophone & Strings". LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has a sticker and some tape on the top corner of the spine.)
