New Roy Eldridge & Dizzy GillespieTrumpet Kings ... LP
Verve, 1954. Used ... Out Of Stock
Diz and Roy come together in a nice blend of two traditions – blowing in a relaxed mode that's less of the "battle" you might expect from the title – and more of a friendly exchange of solos, recorded in the open and laidback style of Verve at the time. The group features Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Bellson on drums – and Dizzy himself even vocalizes a bit on the set! Tracks are mostly longish, with plenty of solo space, and the the album features 5 tracks that include "Blue Moon", "Limehouse Blues", "Trumpet Blues", "Algo Bueno", and "Pretty Eyed Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has light wear and a very small tear on the opening.)

New Dizzy Gillespie, Lee Konitz, Dave Lambert, et al3/27/65 – Charlie Parker 10th Memorial Concert ... LP
Limelight, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $3.99
Way more than the simple Charlie Parker tribute promised in the title! For starters, the set's got two of the best cuts by Gillespie's mid 60s group with James Moody – "Um-Hmmm" and "Groovin High" – both of which have Moody playing in an incredibly unbridled tone that's just great! Next up are Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge fronting a hip group with Billy Taylor on a long version of "Now's The Time". Taylor also makes an appearance on Dave Lambert's scatted vocal version of "Donna Lee", as well as on a large group medley of the tunes "Bird Watcher" and "Disorder At The Border". Finishing off the set is an amazing Lee Konitz solo version of "Blues For Bird", his own composition, played as a spare solo tune on alto! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing in a gatefold cover. Cover has some wear and smudging.)

Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic Volume 11 ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
To our knowledge, this is the only 2LP set issued under the JATP series – and it's a nicely laid out batch of tracks that actually also features some discreet work by smaller combos, in addition to the usual jam session format. Disc one features "The Blues" – played by a group that includes Flip Phillips, Lester Young, Illinois Jacquet, and Dizzy Gillespie; "The Modern Set", played by Diz and Lester Young, with the Oscar Peterson group, plus Buddy Rich, on rhythm; "The Swing Set", with Illinois Jacquet, Roy Eldridge, and Flip Phillips and the same rhythm combo; and "The Ballad Medley", with Lester Young, Flip Phillips, Jacquet, Diz, and Roy. Disc two features one side by the Oscar Peterson Trio, and another by the Gene Krupa Quartet with Eddie Shu. This side is great – with 2 long tracks, "Sleepy Lagoon" and "Sing Sing Sing". Album also features "Buddy Rich's Explosion". LP, Vinyl record album
(Clef pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove – nice and clean overall, and cover is great, save for one small rip.)
