New Buddy ColletteModern Jazz Vol 5 (aka Polyhedric) ... LP
Joker (Italy), 1961. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare European date from reedman Buddy Collette – and arguably one of his hippest albums ever! The set was recorded in Milan in 1961, and features a great lineup not only of Italian players, but which also includes the legendary Dusko Goykovich on trumpet – bringing in a nicely harder sound next to Buddy's work on flute and alto sax! Tracks have a well-arranged feel – the tighter structures of the Italian jazz scene of the time, but with sharper edges than Buddy's 50s work in LA – and given that Collette wrote nearly every number on the set, the album's a great discovery of his deep talents as a writer. In addition to Goykovich on trumpet, other musicians include Renato Sellani on piano, Dino Piana on trombone, Jimmy Pratt on drums, Gianni Basso on tenor, and Franco Cerri on guitar – and Armshed Shobey plays a bit of bongos on a few tracks, adding in a nicely exotic feel. Titles include "Skater For Mater", "Blues", "A Taste Of Fresh Air", "Pickford Street", "Paddy", and "Blues For Nicola". LP, Vinyl record album
(1969 pressing.)

New Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton Quintet Featuring Buddy Collette ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An archetypal record from the west coast scene of the 50s – a sublime batch of lightly grooving numbers from Chico Hamilton's famous early Quintet! The power here really comes from a triad of three players – reedman Buddy Collette, mentioned in the title and playing flute, alto, tenor, and clarinet; guitarist Jim Hall, whose spacious use of his instrument set new standards with this record; and cellist Fred Katz, often an unsung hero whose gentle sound shapes really helped bring a sense of tone and color to the group. Also featured is bassist Carson Smith, giving the same great sensitive accompaniment here he did in Gerry Mulligan's early quartet – and Chico himself is on drums, of course, but often playing with unusual timings and touches that really make for a lot more than conventional rhythm! Titles include "Blue Sands", "The Sage", "A Nice Day", "Buddy Boo", and "Spectacular" – as well as "Free Form", which is totally improvised – although in a way that's very different from any 60's track that would have the same sort of name! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Pacific Jazz pressing with deep groove.)

Red CallenderLowest – The Music Of Red Callender ... LP
Metro, Late 50s. Very Good- .... $8.99
Given that Red was one of the few tuba players in jazz, this album certainly was "The Lowest" – at least in terms of tone, as Red spends a lot of time rumbling around in bottom notes! The style's less clunky than you might think, though, as the setting is late 50s LA – with chamber-type arrangements that match Red's tuba with more breezy players like Buddy Collette, Bill Pitman, Gerald Wilson, Gerald Wiggins, and Billy Bean – who work with Red in a mode that's almost like some of the Chico Hamilton albums on Pacific Jazz, a mixture of jazz and whimsical instrumention with a tightly arranged and haunting feel. Tracks include "Of Thee I Sing", "The Lowest", "Pickin Pluckin Whistlin & Walkin", "Another Blues", "Volume Too", and "Five Four Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and seam splitting, with some light stains and some pen on the back.)

New Herbie MannHi Flutin (aka Flute Fraternity) ... LP
Mode/Premier, Late 50s. Very Good .... $2.99
An excellent little album from the team of Herbie Mann & Buddy Collette – one that has both players using a wide range of reed instruments, and not just flute! Herbie and Buddy are wonderfully paired here – in a way that expands past the usual flute jazz mode by adding in bits of tenor sax, alto, and clarinet – as well as a range of different flutes too – not in a mode that's gimmicky, but which complements the lighter sound of the flute with some heavier notes on tenor at just the right moment – in a style that reminds us of some of Jerome Richardson's best records of the time. Rhythm is by the trio of Mel Lewis on drums, Buddy Clark on bass, and Jimmy Rowles on both piano and a bit of celeste – and tracks are long, with a freshly spontaneous feel that's really great! Titles include "Morning After", "Here's Pete", "Theme From Theme From", "Give A Little Whistle", "Herbie's Buddy", and "Pop Melody". This is a 2nd pressing of the Mode album Flute Fraternity – without Buddy Collette as the co-leader on the cover, and with his name listed in the notes as Bobby Collette! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a bit of light wear, some splitting on the spine, and some small stains.)

New Neal HeftiJazz Pops ... LP
Reprise, 1962. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy work from the amazing Neal Hefti – one of the best non-soundtrack albums issued under his own name, and a set that's filled with bouncy, catchy little tunes! The style here takes off nicely from Neal's previous work with Count Basie, but also shows some of his upcoming soundtrack styles as well – especially his great penchant for offbeat instrumental phrasing, and whimsical way of penning a groove. The ensemble's filled with great players who include Plas Johnson and Buddy Collette on flutes, Conte Candoli and Gerald Wilson on trumpets, Emil Richards and Larry Bunker on vibes, Earl Palmer on drums, and Francisco Aquabella on percussion – all in a sound that's quite fresh, and really unique! There's a fair bit of flutes in the mix – even more than the Hefti/Basie use of the instrument – and the tunes have that tightly punctuated Hefti sound throughout, making for plenty of groovers throughout! Titles include "Exodus", "Cute", "Like Young", "Take Five", "Moanin", "Lil Darlin", and "Coral Reef". LP, Vinyl record album

New Barney KesselMusic To Listen To Barney Kessel By – Barney Kessel Vol 4 ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic Kessel album for Contemporary – one that features Barney's guitar in a set of slightly larger backings, all arranged by Barney himself! The approach is a bit different from some of Kessel's more stripped-down albums of the time – as Barney works with instrumentation that includes a fair bit of flute and clarinet work by players who include Buddy Collette, Jules Jacob, George Smith, and Ted Nash – all supported by straighter piano, bass, and drum rhythms. The mix of guitar and reeds is quite nice, and makes for a warmly lyrical sound on the set – a sound that Kessel is perfectly suited for – nicely sophisticated without getting too coldly academic. Titles include "Blues For A Playboy", "Cheerful Little Earful", "My Reverie", "Carioca", "Indian Summer", "Fascinating Rhythm", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album
(60s UK pressing, on Vogue.)
