Joe NewmanJive At Five (2nd pressing) ... LP
Prestige/Swingville, Early 60s. Very Good+ .... $0.99
Joe blows it strong and mellow – in this spare swinging group that includes Frank Wess on tenor, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Eddie Jones on bass, and Oliver Jackson on drums. Tracks are warm and unpressured, more in a Verve mode than a Prestige one – and titles include "Wednesday's Blues", "Jive At Five", "Taps Miller", and "Cuein The Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Newman/Zoot SimsLocking Horns ... LP
Roulette, Late 50s. Good+ .... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful session from Roulette – a laidback set with Newman and Sims acting as co-leaders, playing with a trio that includes Oscar Pettiford, Adrian Acea, and Osie Johson, all coming together nicely with the feel of a late 50s session for Prestige. Newman's horn has an especially gutbuckety quality to it, and Sims follows suit with some deeply soulful work on his solos. Titles include "Corky", "Mambo For Joe", "Midnite Fantasy", "Tater Pie", "Oh Joe", and "Oh Shaye". LP, Vinyl record album
(Multicolor bar pressing, with deep groove. Vinyl has some marks that click. Cover has some wear, a bit of peeling on the gloss finish, and a small split on the top seam, with an ink stamp and a stain on the back.)

New Joe NewmanAll I Wanna Do Is Swing (The Joe Newman Story) ... LP
RCA, 1955. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
During the mid 50s, RCA virtually had a lock on this sort of classic swing-based jazz session – and this nice groover by Joe Newman is a perfect example of the label's legacy in that field. The session features an octet with Joe, Al Cohn, Ernie Wilkins, Nat Pierce, and Freddie Greene – and it sports arrangements by Wilkins, Cohn, and Manny Albam. Titles are short, with lots of ensemble playing and solos by Joe. With "Soon", "Topsy", "Jack's Wax", "Leonice", and "It's A Thing Of The Past". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label mono pressing, with deep groove. Cover has a split bottom seam, a partially split top seam, and light wear, with a bit of sticker residue and a name in pen on the back.)

Count Basie with Joe WilliamsBreakfast Dance & Barbecue ... LP
Roulette, 1959. Very Good- .... $1.99
Breakfast Dance & Barbecue? Our stomachs are growling already! The album's a great little live set from Basie – recorded at the Americana Hotel in Miami at 2 in the morning – featuring an all-star late 50s Basie group with Freddie Green, Sonny Payne, Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Joe Newman, Thad Jones, and Harry Edison – plus Joe Williams vocalizing on a few of the tunes on the set. The tracks are a bit longer than usual – which is quite nice – and titles include "Let's Have A Taste", "Moten Swing", "Who Me", and "Counter Block". LP, Vinyl record album

Buck ClaytonHow Hi The Fi ... LP
Columbia, 1954. Very Good- Gatefold .... $1.99
A record with a title that sounds like it should be something of a bachelor pad release from the title, but which is instead a good old fashioned, no holds barred, open-ended jazz session from trumpeter Buck Clayton! All tracks are nice and long – way more than usual for big label jazz at the time – and Clayton's trumpet is lineup alongside those of Joe Newman and Joe Thomas, plus other players who include Woody Herman on clarinet, Urbie Green and Benny Powell on trombones, Julian Dash and Al Cohn on tenor, Charlie Fowkes on baritone, Freddie Green on guitar, and Sir Charles Thompson on piano. Titles include "Moten Swing", "Sentimental Journey", "How Hi The Fi", and "Blue Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy original red label pressing. Vinyl has sleeve residue and plays with some surface noise. Cover has a partially split top seam, some discoloration due to aging, a peeled mark from sticker removal on the back, and clear tape on the spine.)

Buck ClaytonHuckle-buck & Robbins' Nest – A Buck Clayton Jam Session ... LP
Columbia, 1953. Very Good- .... $5.99
A heavy classic from trumpeter Buck – two side-long tracks, which was relatively groundbreaking at the time, especially for a studio date! Other players include Joe Newman on trumpet, Urbie Green and Henderson Chambers on trombones, Lem Davis on alto, Julian Dash on tenor, Charlie Fowlkes on baritone, Sir Charles Thompson on piano, and Freddie Green on guitar! Titles include "The Huckle-Buck" and "Robbin's Nest". LP, Vinyl record album

Al CohnNatural Seven ... LP
RCA, Late 50s. Very Good .... $11.99
The Natural Seven is Al's septet that features Joe Newman, Frank Rehack, Freddie Green, Milt Hinton, Nat Pierce, and Osie Johnson. The group grooves in the usual tightly arranged Cohn style, with lots of ensemble playing, and some short clipped solos. Titles include "The Natural Thing To Do", "A.C. Meets Osie", "Baby Please", "Pick A Dilly", and "Count Me In". LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King ColeWelcome To The Club ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+ .... $1.99
One of our favorite albums by Nat King Cole – done with a bit more depth and feeling than some of his other Capitol sets of the time – and some great jazzy backings, too! Arrangements are by Dave Cavanaugh, but there's almost a Basie-like quality to the group at times – never too hard-swinging, but definitely that slow-burning quality the Count could hit so well with a singer, especially on the horns! The group is awash with Basie-ites – and saxes are by Marshall Royal, Frank Foster, Billy Mitchell, and Frank Wess; trumpets include Joe Newman and Thad Jones; trombones feature Al Grey, Henry Coker, and Benny Powell; and rhythm features guitar from Freddie Greene, piano from Gerald Wiggins, and drums from Sonny Payne – definitely a swinging lineup. Titles include the great "Welcome To The Club" – plus "Anytime Anyday Anywhere", "The Late Late Show", "Wee Baby Blues", "Avalon", "She's Funny That Way", and "The Blues Don't Care". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has splitting on the top seam & some wear.)

Illinois JacquetKing Jacquet ... LP
RCA, Late 40s. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $3.99
A collection of alter 40s small group work by Illinois – recorded after his initial fame with Lionel Hampton, but before he'd settled into more of a swinging 50s jazz groove. The materail was all recorded in New York, between the years 1947 and 1950 – and players include Russell Jacquet on trumpet (and occasional vocals), JJ Johnson, Joe Newman, Henry Coker, Ray Perry, and Sir Charles Thompson. The set features 16 tracks in all, and titles include "Jet Propulsion", "King Jacquet", "Embryo", "Riffin At 24 Street", "Slow Down Baby", "Hot Rod", and "You Gotta Change". LP, Vinyl record album
(French gatefold pressing, from the mid 80s. Cover has some notes on back.)

Illinois Jacquet & Leo ParkerToronto 1947 ... CD
Uptown, 1947. New Copy .... $14.99 16.98
A rare performance from two 40s giants of the saxophone – tenorist Illinois Jacquet and baritonist Leo Parker – coming together here in a live setting, with tracks that run a lot longer than most studio work from either player at the time! Given that Jacquet's horn is played at a pretty deep, soulful level, he's pretty great match for the sound of the young Leo Parker – already one of the strongest baritone saxophonists of his generation, with a voice that easily bridges the space between bop and swing! Other players on the date include Joe Newman and Russell Jacquet on trumpets, Sir Charles Thompson on piano, Al Lucas on bass, and Shadow Wilson on drums – and the live material has a quality that's a bit like some of the smaller group JATP performances of the period. Tracks include "Mutton Leg", "Home Sweet Home", "Music Hall Beat", "Bottoms Up", and a nice "Ballad Medley". CD

Paul QuinichetteKid From Denver ... LP
Dawn, 1956. Very Good .... $28.99
Brilliant work from the "Vice Pres" – tenorist Paul Quinichette, stepping out here in one the best of of his all-too-few sessions as a leader! Paul's tone is amazing throughout – very much on a par with that of Ben Webster or Coleman Hawkins, and proof that his admission to the jazz "executive branch" in the 50s was well deserved. The tunes are shortish, but very swinging – and Quinichette's tenor work dominates in a group that also includes Nat Pierce, Henry Coker, Thad Jones, Freddie Green, and Joe Newman. There's a Basie-esque swing overall – but the final result is miles from Basie, and has a very different vibe overall. Titles include "Big Deal", "Happy Feeling", "Pardon The Blues Please", "Start Here", and "The Kid From Denver". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove – nice and clean. Cover has a bit of tape on two seams, but is nice overall.)

Larry WillisNew Kind Of Soul ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy .... $22.99
A really killer set from pianist Larry Willis – way different than any of his later albums as a leader, and from his early work with Jackie McLean in the 60s! Larry's playing here with a sound that's as righteous as his image on the cover, but which is also pretty funky at points too – a small combo mode that's partly in a soul instrumental mode, partly with some of the soaring, more expressive qualities you'd find later on records for labels like Strata East or Black Jazz. The whole combo's wonderful – and includes the mighty Al Foster on drums and Vic Sproles on bass – two super-hip rhythm cats – alongside a tight flugelhorn frontline from the trio of Jimmy Owens, Marvin Stamm, and Joe Newman – and lots of sharp riffing guitar from Al Gava. The funky cuts are wonderful – and include a break version of Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle", and sweet covers of Andre Williams' "Funky Judge" and James Brown's "Lickin' Stick" – but original cuts are nice too, and include "Someday soon" and "Consola Coa".

Marian MontgomeryMarian Montgomery Swings For Winners & Losers ... CD
1963. New Copy .... Mid-December, 2013 (delayed)
We love Marian Montgomery – and she's a heck of a great singer with a really unusual sound! In an early 60s work of sultry vixens, Marian's got a harder-swinging groove that's almost in a Ray Charles mode – clearly inspired by 50s R&B, but done with enough of a jazz flourish to expand out the sound nicely. Plus, she's got a really rhythmic approach to her work, no matter what the tune – which makes for an uncanny ability to turn even a sleeper into a surprising swinger. Here, it also helps that Dick Hyman's handling the arrangements – playing organ and piano himself on the record, and working with a small combo that includes Kenny Burrell, Joe Newman, Milt Hinton, and Willie Rodriguez. The whole thing's plenty great – and titles include "Breezin Along With The Breeze", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "My Buddy", "The Exciting Mister Fitch", "Deed I Do", and "All By Myself". CD

Eddie JeffersonLetter From Home ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Near Mint- .... Just Sold Out!
The beginning of a whole new chapter of greatness for singer Eddie Jefferson – a record that took his older style of putting words to jazz solos, and updated it nicely for a new generation in the 60s! Eddie's got a rootsy look on the cover, but the sound here is snappingly hip and sophisticated throughout – a cool soul jazz take on vocalese that's right up there with the best solo work by Jon Hendricks, and sung in a similarly raspy style. The group shifts a bit from track to track – between small combo and larger ensemble arranged by Ernie Wilkins – and players include Clark Terry and Joe Newman on trumpets, Johnny Griffin on tenor, James Moody on alto and flute, Junior Mance and Joe Zawinul on piano, and Barry Galbraith on guitar. Titles include some great original lyrics by Jefferson on the tunes "Soft & Furry", "Keep Walkin", "Things Are Getting Better", and "Back In Town" – and equally great vocals on versions of "Letter From Home", "Billie's Bounce", and "Night In Tunisia".

Sonny StittChamp ... LP
Muse, 1974. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
An excellent bop side that finds Stitt and his sidemen still at the top of their game, despite the fact that the date was rather late in many of their careers. While others were exploring electric jazz, Stitt, Joe Newman, Duke Jordan, Sam Jones and Roy Brooks, lay out six sides of crisp hard bop: "The Champ", "Sweet & Lovely", "The Midgets", "The Eternal Triangle", "AllThe Things You Are" and "Walkin'".

A live set recorded very much in a classic Verve mode – actually produced by Benny himself, and recorded in Tokyo in 1977 with a small group that includes Budd Johnson, Cecil Payne, Cat Anderson, Nat Pierce, and Joe Newman. Tracks are long, and titles include "Them There Eyes", "It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing", and "Squatty Roo". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jazz StudioJazz Studio Vol 5 & 6 – Complete Sessions ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1957. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The last 2 sessions in Decca's Jazz Studio series – both of them pretty darn unique! Jazz Studio 5 was put together under the leadership of arranger Ralph Burns – one of our favorite jazz arrangers ever! As proven by some of his impeccable work crafting larger backings for artists on the Verve and Clef labels, Burns had an approach that was quite different than most of his contemporaries. He worked in a mode that seemed pretty standard at the outset – with an approach to backdrops that worked in broad colors of sound and tone – but he also had a talent for putting in strange modern twists, little surprises, and other embellishments that never detracted from the soloist, and instead seemed to keep them on their toes, forcing them to really come up with some great stuff during their time at the recording. You'll hear plenty of that kind of action going on here – in one of Burns' rarest sets ever, recorded with a group that includes Billy Byers, Joe Newman, Dave Schildkraut, Herbie Mann, and Milt Hinton. Mann's particularly great, and plays a number of horns with ease – and titles include "Cool Cat On A Hot Tin Roof", "What Am I Here For", "I'll Be Around", "Jazz Club USA", and "South Gonzales Street Parade. Jazz Studio 6 is an equally enigmatic set of modern jazz – recorded by the Amram-Barrow Quartet – an obscure group led by tenor saxophonist George Barrow and horn player David Amram, the latter of whom would go onto great fame in the 60s and 70s for his groundbreaking arrangements, soundtrack work, and world/jazz experiments! At this point, Amram's a young modernist with some very fresh ideas – and contributes some wonderful original tunes to the session with a moody east coast style that almost has traces of the Mingus camp – particularly the work of Jimmy Knepper and Pepper Adams. George Barrow's tone on the tenor is really tremendous – sharp and soulful, reminding us a bit of the freshness that Hank Mobley brought to some of his early sessions in the 50s, but with less of a hardbop fire. The rhythm in the group is by Arthur Phipps on bass and Al Harewood on drums (Amram plays a bit of piano as well) – and titles include "City Talk", "Someday Morning Will Come", "Somewhere Along The Way", "Phipps Quipps", "Lobo Nocho", and "I Love You".

New Ruth PriceMy Name Is Ruth Price I Sing (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Kapp (Japan), 1955. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ruth's a great little singer with a voice we really love – kind of in the range of late 50s Chris Connor or June Christy, with a sad and boozy tone – quite different than what you'd expect from the somewhat cherry look of the cover! This album's one of the few she ever recorded – a solid and intimate jazz-based effort, with backings arranged by Lou Stein and players that include Joe Newman on trumpet and Frank Wess on tenor – both of whom give things a wonderfully soulful feel! A great one from the years when girl singers really got their due in the recording industry – and titles include "Who Am I", "Gentleman Friend", "My Shining Hour", "Calypso Blues", and "Sleighride In July".

New Shirley ScottBlue Seven ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Used .... Out Of Stock
A standout early session from organist Shirley Scott – noteworthy in that it's a quintet recording, different than Shirley's mostly-trio output from the time! Here, she's working in a group that includes Oliver Nelson on tenor sax and Joe Newman on trumpet – and Nelson's edgey tone adds a lot to the record, as it did on other Prestige sides from the same time – a deeper soul vibe than you might normally get from Shirley alone on the Hammond. The tracks are simple swinging soul jazz numbers – handled in tight format by the group – and other players include George Tucker on bass and Roy Brooks on drums. Tunes include "Blue Seven", "Wagon Wheels", "Nancy", "Don't Worry Bout It Baby Here I Am", and "Give Me The Simple Life". LP, Vinyl record album

New Kenyon Hopkins/Duke Ellington/Alex NorthHustler/Paris Blues/Long Hot Summer ... CD
El (UK), 1961. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Back to back jazz soundtracks – the cream of the crop of the early 60s! First up is The Hustler – a killer jazz score from Kenyon Hopkins – a composer we can almost always trust to turn around a killer jass score! The work is mostly in a jazz ensemble mode – and moves between swinging segments, and sadder ones – those beautifully blue passages that Hopkins did so well in the early 60s – full of emotion, but in a really subtle, mature sort of way that also marked a shift in American cinema too – quite a change from the overblown emotion of a decade before, both in the music and on screen. Players include Phil Woods, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Bodner on reeds; Joe Wilder on trumpet, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, Hank Jones on piano, and Barry Galbraith on guitar – and titles include "Derby Time", "Dining Out", "Fast Buck", "Small Time Charlie", "The Loser", and "Minnesota Fats". Paris Blues is a moody introspective score, written for a 1961 film that starred Paul Newman as a frustrated jazz musician living in Paris. The "Paris Blues" theme is a dark, somber composition that is supposedly Newman's masterpiece as a jazz writer – and it works beautifully with the film's themes of frustration and unfulfilled desire. Ellington's at his best here, and apart from the main theme, the score also has great versions of classics like "Mood Indigo" and "Take The A Train", plus originals like "Nite", "Wild Man Moore", "Guitar Amour", and "Paris Stairs". Also features Louis Armstrong on one track! CD also features 7 more tracks from The Long Hot Summer – a more traditional score penned by Alex North, and featuring a title song by Jimmie Rodgers. CD
