New Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic Volume 11 ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold .... $38.99
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.)

New Gene Krupa & Buddy RichKrupa & Rich ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful meeting of two of the biggest 50s talents on the drums – and a session that's great not only for the expected firey percussion, but also for the horn work by other members on the set! Given the "drum battle" style of the record, the tracks are long and very open – done in a studio mode that recalls some of the Krupa/Rich meetings at JATP, and like the JATP sides, featuring plenty of space for players to take longer solos. Dizzy Gillespie, Illinois Jacquet, Flip Phillips, and Roy Eldridge get in some nice licks on the set – and other players include Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, and Ray Brown. Titles include "Gene's Blues", "Bernie's Tune", "Buddy's Blues", and "I Never Knew". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Clef pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has a split spine, discoloration due to age, and light wear.)

New Dizzy Gillespie, Lee Konitz, Dave Lambert, et al3/27/65 – Charlie Parker 10th Memorial Concert ... LP
Limelight, 1965. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
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 wear and aging.)
