Billie HolidayBillie Holiday At Jazz At The Philharmonic (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1945/1946. New Copy ... $18.99
Some of the earliest Billie Holiday work for Verve Records – material recorded in a mid 40s Jazz At The Philharmonic session, already showing the great setting the label was able to allow! Billie's voice is wonderful – really coming into its own mature modes – and backing is by a small combo that features the excellent Willie Smith on alto, plus Milt Raskin on piano, and Red Callender on bass. Milt plays solo behind Billie on a classic reading of "Strange Fruit" – and other tracks include "Billie's Blues", "All Of Me", "Body & Soul", and "The Man I Love". CD

Jazz At The PhilharmonicHow High The Moon ... LP
Clef, Late 40s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the first, and most famous, of Norman Granz's landmark JATP sessions – featuring an extended reading of "How High The Moon" that was a bit of jazz history itself! The session was recorded at Syria Mosque Auditorium in Pittsburgh – and featured players that include Buck Clayton, Flip Phillips, Trummy Young, Coleman Hawikins, Kenny Kersey, and Willie Smith. Titles include the extended version of "How High The Moon", and "Bellboy Blues" – as well as 2 titles from another JATP session, "Lady Be Good" and "After You've Gone" – featuring Howard McGhee, Charlie Parker, and Willie Smith.

Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic Volume 11 ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
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.)

Mercury, Early 50s. Good ... $1.99
2 hard-wailing jam session numbers from the JATP series – both featuring tremendous tenor work from Illinois Jacquet and Jack McVea, plus trombone from JJ Johnson and a bit of guitar from Les Paul! Each track runs a side of the record, and titles include "Lester Leaps In" and "Blues". Nice David Stone Martin cover too – ink on a light blue backing and one of his more obscure images.

Jazz At The Philharmonic (Lester Young, etc)Frankfurt 1952 ... CD
Pablo, 1952. Used ... $4.99
A Pablo Records release, but one that features material originally done during the classic Verve Records years of Norman Granz – a previously unreleased live performance by the Jazz At The Philharmonic crew! This time around, the combo's a small one – a really all-star lineup with Lester Young and Flip Phillips on tenor, Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Hank Jones on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Max Roach on drums – all given lots of room to really open up, on the kind of long tracks that allow for plenty of solo voicing – exactly what we've come to expect from the JATP at their best! Titles include "Dre's Blues", "How High The Moon", "Undecided", and a long "Ballad Medley". CD

Early all-jazz work from Nat King Cole – beautiful piano work, in a group with JJ Johnson on trombone, Jack McVea and Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Shorter Sherock on trumpet, and Les Paul on guitar! Tracks are long, and include "Tea For Two", "Bugle Call Rag", "Blues", and "Rosetta". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic In Europe (green cover) ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Part of a 4 volume set, all recorded on one night in Denmark. The set is a Norm Granz JATP transplantation to the European stage, and features the sort of group you'd imagine, with stars like Coleman Hawkins, Don Byas, Benny Carter & Roy Eldridge. Unlike the other volumes in the set, where the group stretches out and riffs over side long takes on standards, this one is more concise, with less jamming (but no less cookin') versions of "These Foolish Things", "The Nearness of You", "You Go To My Head" and 4 more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Jazz At The PhilharmonicNorman Granz' Jazz At The Philharmonic (10 inch LP) ... LP
Stinson, Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really transformative record in modern jazz – the first-ever Jazz At The Philharmonic album, issued by Norman Granz on the tiny Stinson label in the years before starting Clef, Norgran, and Verve! The record kicks off the concept with a real bang – offering up soon-to-be-standard takes on "Lady Be Good" and "How High The Moon" – played in long jam session mode by a group of players that includes Illinois Jacquet, Willie Smith, Charlie Ventura, Howard McGhee, Garland Finney, and Joe Guy – the last 2 of whom are definitely fake names used for the date! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black vinyl pressing. Cover has some wear, aging, and a bit of pen, with tape and a bit of splitting on the seams.)

Art Blakey/Georges Arvanitas/JATPJazz In Paris – Jazz Et Cinema Vol 2 – Des Femmes Disparaissent/Les Tricheurs/La Bride Sur Le Cou ... CD
Universal (France), 1958/1961. New Copy ... $6.99 11.99
Three great French jazz soundtracks on one CD! The bulk of the set is taken up with Art Blakey's wornderful score to the film Des Femmes Disparaissent – which features work by Jazz Messengers Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons, and Benny Golson, recorded in Paris in 1958, with a hip swinging hardbop sound. These tracks make up 17 titles on the CD – with songs that include "Mambo Dans La Voiture", "Merlin", "Tom", "Nasol", and "Blues Pour Vava", plus a few solo drum tracks that are really great! 4 more tracks are from the rare ep-only soundtrack to Les Tricheurs – played by a Jazz At The Philharmonic group that includes Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson, Coleman Hawkins, and Roy Eldridge. Tracks on those numbers include "Les Tricheurs", "Phil's Tune", and "Mic's Jump". The last 2 tracks on the CD – "La Bride Sur Le Cou" and "Brigitte Strip Blues" – are by a quintet led by pianist Georges Arvanitas, and featuring trumpet by Bernard Vitet and tenor by Francois Jenneau. Very hip stuff all around – and a real treat for fans of jazz and film alike! CD

Charlie Parker & OthersNorman Granz Jam Session (Vols 1 & 2) ... LP
Verve, 1952. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
An expanded version of the first album to carry the Jazz At The Philharmonic formula into the studio – and a record that virtually coined the term "jam session" for 50s jazz! Norman Granz repeats the style he'd done so well in a live setting – and brings together a host of all-star players in a very relaxed, open environment – one that gives them all plenty of space to open up and hit some nice long solos. Players include Charlie Parker, Johnny Hodges, and Benny Carter in a three-alto frontline, plus Flip Phillips and Ben Webster on tenor, Barney Kessel on guitar, Oscar Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and JC Heard on drums. Side one features the original "Jam Blues", and side two features a "Ballad Medley", with each solo star taking one of the tunes in the set. Also features the material from vol 2 – "Funky Blues" and "What Is This Thing Called Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Gene Krupa & Buddy RichDrum Battle At JATP ... CD
Verve, 1952. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty darn great album – with a wonderful mix of JATP swing and strong-handed drumming by the leaders. The material was recorded at a Jazz At The Philharmonic show at Carnegie Hall in 1952, and although the main focus appears to be Krupa and Rich's drum work, there's actually some fantastic sax playing on the album – from both the alto of Willie Smith and the tenor of Flip Phillips, both of whom are at the height of their powers in this relaxed setting, working amazingly well around the bombastic drum pounding of Krupa and Rich. Tracks are long, and titles include "Idaho", "Flying Home", "Drum Boogie", "Drum Battle", and "Perdido". CD
