Buddy ColletteBuddy Collette & His Swinging Shepherds At The Cinema ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Buddy takes his Swinging Shepherds crew to the movies on this one – serving up a set of tunes from 40s and 50s films that all come off perfectly with the group's multi-flute approach! The sound's nicely mellow at times, but still has that tightly arranged west coast modern style that made the group's first record so great. Players include Paul Horn, Bud Shank, and Harry Klee on flutes – plus Jim Hall on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Titles include "The Bad & The Beautiful", "The Shrike", "Invitation", "Ruby", "Swinging On A Star", and "Intermezzo" LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some light stains on the back.)

Red CallenderLowest – The Music Of Red Callender ... LP
Metro, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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 light marks.)

Red CallenderRed Callender Speaks Low ... LP
Crown, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the few albums ever recorded by Red Callender – a player who certainly speaks "low", given that his instrument here is the tuba! Red's got a rumbling, bassy sound that's surprisingly un-corny – an approach to the tuba that's also informed by Callender's many years playing bass on other jazz dates – and in a way, he uses the instrument almost like a bass on this set – working out lower rhythmic lines that almost remind us of a bowed bass at times! Other players on the date include Buddy Collette on flute and clarinet, Vince De Rosa and Irving Rosenthal on French horns, Bob Bain on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Bill Douglass on drums. The absence of a piano makes for a mighty nice sound – one that's lighter than you might think for a tuba-related date – and which steps along with almost a Chico Hamilton Quintet sort of feel. Titles include "Cris", "A Foggy Day", "Nice Day", "Speak Low", and "Darn That Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam, a Factory Sealed sticker on the opening, and peeled spots from sticker removal.)

Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton – Jazz Milestone Series ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1950s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
A 60s collection that brings together some of Chico's best early work for Pacific Jazz – including his groundbreaking Quintet, a group that completely redefined the sound of jazz on the west coast! The album's filled with playful tracks that feature Chico's unique rhythms next to instrumentation that includes guitar, flute, cello, and alto – with players that include Eric Dolphy, Jim Hall, Paul Horn, and Buddy Collette. Titles include "Soft Winds", "Satin Doll", "Caravan", "Taking A Chance On Love", "Sleep", "Take The A Train", and "Siete Quatro". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz PickersJazz Pickers – For Moderns Only ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The "pickers" in the group's name refers to the way they play – tight and plucked, in the manner of some of the work of the Chico Hamilton quintet of the late 50s. No surprise, the group features Chico's reedman Buddy Collette on flute, and cellist Harry Babasin on cello (natch!) – as well as drums and vibes by Bob Harrington, additional drums by Bill Douglas, and guitar by Don Overberg. The sound is very Hamilton-esque overall – which is a-ok with us – and titles include "Bebe", "Influtration", "When You Love Someone", "RH Factor", "Easy Pickins", "Rap Scallion", and "Monti Cello". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with drummer logo and deep groove. Cover has a split top seam.)

Barney KesselBarney Kessel Plays Carmen ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+ ... $19.99
An odd choice for material, but a surprisingly nice record – and just the kind of session needed to break Barney Kessel out of some of his too-familiar trio modes of the 50s! The record here features jazz takes on tunes from the opera Carmen – in case you didn't figure that out from the title – all adapted by Barney himself, on charts that feature Buddy Collette on flute, Ray Linn on trumpet, Victor Feldman on vibes, and Andre Previn on piano – a lineup that helps keep things creative and playful without sounding too gimmicky. Titles include "Free As A Bird", "If You Dig Me", "A Pad On The Edge Of Town", "The Gypsy's Hip", and "Carmen's Cool". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy mono pressing.)

Barney KesselMusic To Listen To Barney Kessel By – Barney Kessel Vol 4 ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $19.99
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
(Yellow label pressing with a deep groove. Cover has some wear.)

Jack Millman All StarsShades Of Things To Come ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
A great lost treasure from the LA scene of the 50s – one of the few albums recorded by trumpeter Jack Millman as a leader, working here with a well-named set of "all stars" that includes Jimmy Giuffre, Buddy Collette, Harry Babasin, and Larry Bunker. The set's got a similar feel to other west coast work of the time, but the tracks are tighter, more composed, and a bit more swinging – sort of halfway between swing and the chamber jazz of some of the headier groups. Titles include "The Great Lie", "Along About F", "Butterfingers", "Thinking Of Russ", and "Da Bloosiest Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

Buddy RichBig Band Shout (aka This One's For Basie) ... LP
Verve, 1956. Sealed ... $7.99
A lively little set done strongly in a Basie mode – as you might guess from the title! Buddy's on drums, but the real maestro here is Marty Paich – who handled the arrangements, and most likely brought together the batch of west coast jazzers who inhabit the group – including Pete Condoli on trumpet, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Bob Enevoldsen on valve trombone, Bob Cooper on tenor, Buddy Collette on flute and baritone, and Jimmy Rowles on piano. The set's less Buddy-like than it is Marty-ish – and the grooves here have that very fluid Paich approach throughout – but recast slightly to reflect the strong Basie/Hefti groove of the 50s. Titles include "Shorty George", "Ain't It The Truth", "9:20 Special", "Jump For Me", "Blues For Basie", and "Blue & Sentimental". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 60s pressing.)

New Lyle Murphy12 Tone Compositions & Arrangements By Lyle Murphy (aka Gone With The Woodwinds) ... LP
Contemporary, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare bit of mid 50s modernism from composer Lyle Murphy – one of the most angular talents on the west coast scene of the time, but an artist who also manages to swing with a nice little groove! On one hand, Murphy's got some key academic inspiration behind his music – as you might guess from the "12 Tone" title – but on another, he still works with a sense of jazz solo energy, so that he lets the players in his group get enough voice into the tunes to shape them into their own. Members of the group include Buddy Collette, Abe Most, Russ Cheever, Jack Dumon, and Chuck Gentry on reeds – plus rhythm from Andre Previn on piano, Curtis Counce on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Most tunes have complicated reed interplay, supported by more swinging jazz rhythms – and titles include "Poly Doodle", "Perdido", "Triton", "Fourth Dimension", "Seismograph", and "Pemba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear, a small sticker on the back, and splitting on the spine.)

New Three SoundsSoul Symphony ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The mighty Monk Higgins works some amazing magic here with the Three Sounds – taking them way past their standard trio modes of the 60s, into some really funky territory overall! The set's a definite symphony of soul – not just because the first side features a super-extended, suite-like tune – but also because all of the tracks feature fuller backings from Higgins, which really push the piano groove of the group! Drums are mighty heavy at points – thanks to trio member Carl Burnett – and the great Henry Franklin is in the group on bass, already crafting those wicked lines that would show up even more strongly on his albums for Black Jazz. In addition to flute from Buddy Collette, guitar from Freddy Robinson, and Gene Harris' super-heavy piano, there's also a bit of strings, and some slight backing vocals in the symphony from a trio that features Alex Brown, Mamie Galore, and Clydie King. The "Soul Symphony" cut runs for 26 minutes on side one – and other tracks include "Popsicle Pimp", "Repeat After Me", "Black Sugar", and "Upper Four Hundred". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty pressing – in great shape!)
