Kenny DorhamAfro-Cuban ... CD
Blue Note/Jazz Heritage, 1955. Used ... $7.99
A completely unique little session – and a record that's every bit as musically striking as you might guess from its title and cover! The date's a rare Latin-tinged one for trumpeter Kenny Dorham – a record that takes his usually smooth sound and sets it up against octet backings with horns from JJ Johnson on trombone, Cecil Payned on baritone sax, and Hank Mobley on tenor – plus piano from Horace Silver, bass from Oscar Pettiford, and drums from Art Blakey – plus added congas from Patato Valdes! The expanded group plays with a great sense of power – really pushing Kenny's sound tremendously – and although the album also features a few tracks by a smaller group with less percussion, these also have a bit of a Latin/exotic tinge too. Titles include "Basheer's Dream", "Lotus Flower", "KD's Motion", "Venita's Dance", "Minor's Holiday", "La Villa", and "Afrodisia". CD features 2 bonus tracks too – "Echo Of Spring (aka KD's Cab Ride)" and "Minor's Holiday (alt take)". CD

Clark Terry/Kenny DorhamTop Trumpets ... LP
Jazzland, Late 50s. Very Good ... $13.99
A strange little album that combines tracks from 2 different earlier Riverside LPs – Serenade To A Bus Set by Clark Terry, and another session that features Kenny Dorham and Ernie Henry, possibly issued under Henry's name as Seven Standards & A Blues. The Terry set features Johnny Griffin, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – on tracks that include "Boomerang", "Digits", and "Donna Lee". The Dorham set features Henry, Wilbur Ware, and GT Hogan – on the tracks "Soon", "Sposin", and "Lotus Blossom". LP, Vinyl record album

New Sonny Criss & Kenny DorhamBopmasters (Sonny Criss At The Crossroads/Kenny Dorham & The Jazz Prophets) ... LP
ABC, 1956/1959. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent set that brings together 2 rare albums from the 50s! Sonny Criss At The Crossroads is an obscure 1959 session recorded by Criss in Chicago, and it's one of the only jazz records ever on the Peacock label, which put out mostly gospel and blues. Criss is joined by Joe Scott on piano, and the Chicago rhythm section of Bob Cranshaw and Walter Perkins, both fresh from the MJT+3. Great tone, warm solos, and a nice vibe throughout. Tracks include "You Don't Know", "Butts Delight", "Softly", and "Sylvia". Kenny Dorham & The Jazz Prophets is a fantastic lost hard bop album, featuring Kenny Dorham leading a tight quintet that stars J.R. Monterose on Tenor. Monterose and Dorham are great, and really open up on the 5 tracks on the album – all of which are long enough to give the players plenty of room to blow. Probably one of the best jazz records ever recorded for ABC, and with the titles "The Prophet", "DX", "Tahitian Suite", and "Blues Elegante". LP, Vinyl record album

New Kenny DorhamJazz Contemporary ... LP
Time, 1960. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from one of the hippest jazz contemporaries of the late 60s – trumpeter Kenny Dorham, a player who was really coming into his own by the time of this album! The record has Kenny with a nice sort of edge – not as boldly experimental as his 60s work for Blue Note, but definitely pushing things forward from the 50s – shaking off the sweet for a bit more bite, and working with a great lineup that includes Steve Kuhn on piano, Charles Davis on baritone sax, and either Jimmy Garrison or Butch Warren on bass. Kuhn and Davis really bring some interesting elements to the record – and titles include "Tonica", "Monk's Mood", "In Your Own Sweet Way", and "Horn Salute". LP, Vinyl record album

New Kenny DorhamKenny Dorham & The Jazz Prophets Vol 1 ... LP
ABC, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic bit of lost hardbop – an obscure ABC album that has Kenny Dorham working with his Jazz Prophets group! The combo's a quintet with a unique lineup that includes Dick Katz on piano, JR Monterose on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and the whole set's got an open-ended sort of approach that's much more like albums of the time on Blue Note or Savoy than it is the usually more staid ABC jazz sides of the 50s! Monterose and Dorham are fantastic, and really open up on the 5 tracks on the album – all of which are long enough to give the players plenty of room to blow. Probably one of the best jazz records ever recorded for ABC – with titles that include "The Prophet", "DX", "Tahitian Suite", and "Blues Elegante". LP, Vinyl record album

New Kenny DorhamTrompeta Toccata (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully free-thinking set by Kenny Dorham – and a record that really breaks from his earlier work! The album's not exactly experimental, but it features longer tracks with a looser approach than some of Dorham's sweeter shorter work – more in a rhythmically progressive mode that lets the soloists carve out their own space in the set. Joe Henderson joins Kenny on the frontline, and the rest of the group includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Albert Heath on drums. All titles are originals, with some great modernist inflections, especially in the changes – and titles include "The Fox", "Mamacita", "Tropeta Toccata", and "Night Watch". CD

New Kenny DorhamUna Mas (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An excellent groover from Kenny Dorham – possibly one of his best ever albums for Blue Note – a record that shows how much he was pushing past his bop roots in his later years! The tracks are extremely long, and done with a complexity in rhythms that mixes Latin elements with hardbop modes – all set up in a style that really stretches out, and drives Dorham's trumpet with a fire he'd hardly had before. The rest of the group is super-sharp – key young players who really help keep an edge the the whole thing – with Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Henderson on tenor, Butch Warren on bass and Tony Williams drums. Tracks are all long, incredible Dorham originals – "Una Mas" fills up side one, and "Straight Ahead" and "Sao Paulo" cover the flip. Also includes a bonus track, a sweet warm take of "If Ever I Would Leave You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Amazing reissue pressing – done as a 2LP set, with heavy vinyl and cover, and played at 45rpm speed for extra-high fidelity!)

Rocky BoydEase It – Introducing The Rocky Boyd Quintet ... LP
Jazztime, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The only full album ever issued by tenor player Rocky Boyd – but a set so great, it's definitely made a name for him over the years! Boyd's got a wonderful tone on the set – sharp and soulful, with an approach to the tenor that almost reminds us of early 60s Jackie McLean – particularly in the way that Jackie could hit dark corners with raspy, personal tone. The rest of the group's no slouch either – and features Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Walter Bishop Jr on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums – a lineup so great, they give the album a real Blue Note sort of polish – and the album's definitely one that would have been a better-known date, if it hadn't died quickly on the short-lived Jazztime label. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "West 42nd Street", "Avars", "Ease It", "Samba De Orfeu", and "Why Not". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb GellerFire In The West (aka Herb Geller) ... LP
Jubilee, 1957. Very Good ... $9.99
A gem of a record – easily one of Herb Geller's best, and a set that definitely has the "fire" promised in the title! There's a bite to the record we really love – a quality in Geller's tone that really blows us away – and which has had us going back and re-evaluating his career after hearing this set. Part of the strength is the setting – a nicely dark vibe, typical to some of the other Jubilee jazz sessions of the time – played by a lineup that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Harold Land on tenor, Lou Levy on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Lawrence Marable on bass – an ensemble that have a fuller punch than some of Geller's other groups in the 60s. The track's are easily grooving hardbop numbers – nearly all originals, and handled with a style that's much more New York oriented than you'd expect from Geller's west coast roots. Titles include "S'Pacific View", "The Fruit", "Marable Eyes", "Melrose & Sam", and "An Air For The Heir". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe GordonIntroducing Joe Gordon (7 inch ep) ... 7-inch
EmArcy, Early 50s. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $39.99
Amazing work from bop trumpeter Joe Gordon! Gordon was a lost talent who only cut a handful of records before his untimely death in 1963 – but he was a heck of a trumpeter, with a rich talent that we'd rank up there with Lee Morgan and Kenny Dorham. Joe plays here in a group that includes Art Blakey on drums and Charlie Rouse on tenor – and the overall sound is right up there with the best raw bop on Blue Note or Prestige during the same time. Titles include "Toll Bridge" and "Lady Bob"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Andrew HillComplete Blue Note Andrew Hill Sessions 1963 to 1966 (7CD set) ... CD
Mosaic/Blue Note, 1960s. Used 7CD ... $239.99
Remarkable modern jazz, from one of the most unique voices in the genre! Hill's piano work and compositions fall into a category of their own, working outside the limits of predominant bop sound, but not quite falling into the world of free jazz that rules the avant scene. This outstanding Mosaic box collects his seminal 60s recordings, comprising of the LPs Black Fire, Smokestack, Judgment, Point Of Departure, Andrew!, One For One, and Compulsion, plus plenty of alternate takes and some material that was issued under Sam Rivers name on the LP Involution. Sidemen include Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, Kenny Dorham, Eric Dolphy, John Gilmore, Freddie Hubbard, Sam Rivers, Richard Davis, Cecil McBee, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams and Joe Chambers. There's 52 tracks in all, spread out over 7 CDs, with titles that include "Land Of Nod", "Black Fire", "McNeil Island", "Tired Trade",Pumpkin", "Subterfuge", "Smokestack", "Ode To Von", "The Day After", "Verne", "Not So", "Flea Flop", "Siete Ocho", "Yokada, Yokada", "Reconciliation", "New Monastary", "Flight 19", "Spectrum", "Symmetry", "The Griots", "Duplicity", "Le Serpenmt Qui Danse", "Euterpe", "Erato", "Roots 'n Herbs", "Compulsion", "Premonition", "Violence" and "Desire".

Blue Note, 1964. Used ... $4.99
A classic "new thing" album recorded with the cream of Blue Note's avant 60s players – like Eric Dolphy, Joe Henderson, and Tony Williams – standing out with Hill as some of the most adventurous players for the label at the time! The album's awash with jagged piano likes from Hill – supported by a modernist 3 horn frontline of Henderson, Dolphy, and Kenny Dorham – skittishly working their way into territory that's never truly free, but wonderfully expressive and exploratory – a clear summation of the sense of "modern" in modern jazz! The set features 5 excellent Andrew Hill compositions, including "New Monastery", "Flight 19", and "Spectrum". CD reissue also features 3 bonus alternate takes of some of these, for a total of 8 tracks in all. CD

Clifford Jordan & OthersComplete Strata East Sessions (In The World/Izipho Zam/Rhythm X/Glass Bead Games/Zodiac/Super Bass) (6CD set) ... CD
Strata East/Mosaic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... $101.99 102.00
A really amazing set of work from tenorist Clifford Jordan – a player who first rose to fame in the hardbop scene of the late 50s, but who moved into tremendous new territory with these Strata East recordings of the late 60s and early 70s! Jordan was a Chicago contemporary of players like Johnny Griffin and Von Freeman, but he was never content to rest on his laurels – and stretched out on these records with a spiritual vibe that he'd never expressed before – and which would go onto inspire countless other musicians in years to come! This set brings together all the Dolphy Series recordings that Jordan recorded – either as an artist or producer – two of which were never issued on record at the time. Jordan's own albums for the label are wonderful enough – the double-length Glass Bead Games, one of our favorite records ever – and the killer In The World, which is great too. But this set also adds in other Strata East albums that really help illustrate the scene in which Jordan was working – including the excellent Pharoah Sanders non-Impulse session, Izipho Zam; the modern music of Charles Brackeen on Rhythm X, with Don Cherry on trumpet and Brackeen on tenor; and the great Cecil Payne album Zodiac, which has some of the last trumpet work ever from Kenny Dorham. Plus, the set also features two extremely rare albums – the never-issued Shades Of Edward Blackwell – led by the drummer, with Don Cherry on trumpet and Luqman Lateef on tenor, plus a bit of log drum from Jordan – and the obscure Super Bass album from Wilbur Ware, which features Jordan on tenor, in a quartet with Ware on bass, Don Cherry on trumpet, and Ed Blackwell on drums! These two albums are worth the price of the package alone – even if you have other Strata East albums in your collection – and the whole thing features the usual sublime Mosaic package and booklet.

Jackie McLeanJackie McLean Quintet (Blue Note) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $18.99
A great little session by Jackie McLean – recorded in 1962 by Blue Note, but not issued until years later, only initially in Japan! The album's one of Jackie's last pure hardbop sides – recorded in the pivotal year of 1962, when he was just beginning to dip his toe into modernist ideas – and inflect his straighter work with some beautiful shifts, twists, and turns that skirted the fringes of modern jazz wonderfully. There's a vibe here that's totally great – one that has McLean breaking away from the pack and working in one of the freshest voices in jazz at the time. Players include Kenny Dorham on trumpet and Sonny Clark on piano – and tracks include "Three Minors", "Marilyn's Dilemma", "Iddy Bitty", and "Blues For Jackie". CD

New Hank MobleyHank Mobley Quintet Featuring Sonny Clark (unreleased material) ... CD

Don't let the cover fool you – because the album's not the Hank Mobley album with John Jenkins on alto, nor the Blue Note 1550 quintet session – but instead some unreleased material with the great Sonny Clark on piano! The group's a five piece, with Kenny Dorham on trumpet – but Kenny bows out for one track, which lets Mobley hold his soulful own on a great bgallad reading of "Deep In A Dream". Almost all the other tracks are originals, though – driven strongly by Clark's deft work on piano, Jimmy Rowser on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The material was all recorded in that key Hank Mobley year of 1957 – and titles include "Don't Get Too Hip", "The Mobe", "My Reverie", and "On The Bright Side". CD

Prestige (Japan), 1956. Used ... $19.99
A strong second message from the mighty Hank Mobley – easily one of our favorite tenor talents of all time, sounding really wonderful here in a pre-Blue Note session for Prestige Records! The format's a bit looser than some of Hank's more famous dates from the late 50s or early 60s, but already shows the strong command of his tenor in the lead – a rock-solid approach to the instrument that's filled with soulful solo inflections throughout, and which seems to really bring out the best work in the quintet – a group that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Walter Bishop Jr on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Tracks are longish, and Mobley's solos are wonderful – and titles include "Xlento", "Crazeology", "The Latest", and "Message From The Border". CD

Savoy, 1956. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A warmly crafted set that features Cecil Payne at the height of his powers on baritone sax – blowing with a sense of soul and timing that's right up there with some of the hipper tenor players of his generation! Payne's sound on the instrument is amazingly precise and wonderfully fluid – blown beautifully in two different settings for the album – one in a quartet with Duke Jordan on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – the other in the same group, but with Kenny Dorham added in on trumpet! Dorham's tones further emphasize the sweeter sound of Cecil on his chosen instrument – and titles on the set include "Arnetta", "Chessman's Delight", "Bringing Up Father", "Groovin High", "Saucer Eyes", and "Man Of Moods".

A great little album from Max Roach – one that has him finding a whole new voice in jazz! The set was recorded on the heels of Max's time with Clifford Brown – and it's a great little album that has him bouncing back nicely from the loss by moving into a new realm that shows off his more lyrical side! The group on the album features Kenny Dorham, Sonny Rollins, Billy Wallace, and George Morrow – and as you'd guess by the title, most tunes are in a jazz waltz mode, which gives them a nicely dancing quality, soft and a bit exotic – almost modal at times – and a nice change from Roach's more full-on hardbop style of the Clifford Brown years. Titles include "Little Folks", "Lover", "The Most Beautiful Girl In the World", and "Blues Waltz". CD

Like the Barney album, these tracks are fantastic – some of the most open-ended playing that Wilen ever did in the 50s, and proof that his tenor work was some of the best jazz coming out of Europe in the postwar years!

The tracks are longer than on some of Wilen's more tightly-arranged albums – which really gives Barney a chance to show off his tremendous solo talent at this early stage – a soulful depth that easily made him one of the best European jazz artists of the time! As with some of Wilen's other gems from the period, the set also features key work from American players who admired his strengths – including Kenny Dorham on trumpet and Duke Jordan on piano – with rhythm from French players Paul Rovere on bass and Daniel Humair on drums.

A great little set – never issued before, but recorded at the same time as Wilen's classic 1959 album Barney, caught live at the Club St-Germain with a group that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Duke Jordan on piano, Paul Rovere on bass, and Daniel Humair on drums. Like the Barney album, these tracks are fantastic – some of the most open-ended playing that Wilen ever did in the 50s, and proof that his tenor work was some of the best jazz coming out of Europe in the postwar years! All tracks are long – and titles include "Reets & I", "The Best Things In Life Are Free", "All The Things You Are", "Round Midnight", and "Time On My Hands". CD

New Joe HendersonIn N Out ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stone killer from the early Blue Note years of tenorist Joe Henderson – a key example of why the label had so much faith in him right from the start, and why Henderson's horn was quite different than so many other players of the 60s! There's a sharp edge here, but there's also a soulful sense of swing – that balance that Joe had more than most of his contemporaries – and which he only continued to develop as the years went on. Echoes of "new thing" modes lie in the background of the record, but upfront things have a sharp 60s Blue Note punch – thanks in part to a great lineup that also includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Henderson's tone is rough and young – but in a great way, one that's perfect for the exploratory nature of his original tunes on the set, and which matches the mood of Dorham's compositions as well. Tracks include "In N Out", "Short Story", "Brown's Town", and "Punjab". CD

New Horace SilverHorace Silver & The Jazz Messengers ... CD
Blue Note, 1954/1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great great early work by Horace – featuring that hard-hitting blend of styles that characterized his early recordings with Art Blakey. The tracks are short, done with a great mix of lyricism and hard-edged playing – and the writing is superb, especially on classics like "Doodlin", "The Preacher", "Hippy", and the amazing "To Whom It May Concern" – one of our all-time favorite tunes in the 50s Blue Note catalog! Kenny Dorham is on trumpet and Hank Mobley's on tenor – and the record is both soufully funky, and darkly tinged bop. A real classic! CD

New Luca Mannutza Sound SixTributo Al Sestetti Anno 60 ... CD
Albore Jazz (Japan), 2009. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Italian sound of the 60s lives again – in this fresh set of work from pianist Luca Mannutza, and his ultra-hip Sound Six combo! The sextet has a wonderful way of reaching back into the past, grabbing up the best elements of Italian jazz, and moving it forward strongly into the 21st Century – almost a summation of the excellent work heard on other titles on the Albore label, served up to perfection here by a lineup that also includes Andy Gravish on trumpet, Max Ionata on tenor, Paolo Recchia on alto, Renato Gattone on bass, and Andrea Nunzi on drums! There's a fluid feel, solid soul, and modern swing that takes us right back to the classic days of Blue Note – no surprise, given that the set includes versions of Wayne Shorter's "On The Ginza" and "The Big Push", Kenny Dorham's "Short Story", and Duke Pearson's "You Know I Care" – plus great takes on Chick Corea's "Litha" and Mulgrew Miller's "Grew's Tune".

New Hank MobleyHank Mobley's Second Message ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A strong second message from the mighty Hank Mobley – easily one of our favorite tenor talents of all time, sounding really wonderful here in a pre-Blue Note session for Prestige Records! The format's a bit looser than some of Hank's more famous dates from the late 50s or early 60s, but already shows the strong command of his tenor in the lead – a rock-solid approach to the instrument that's filled with soulful solo inflections throughout, and which seems to really bring out the best work in the quintet – a group that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Walter Bishop Jr on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Tracks are longish, and Mobley's solos are wonderful – and titles include "Xlento", "Crazeology", "The Latest", and "Message From The Border". CD

New VariousBlue Bossa – Cool Cuts From The Tropics ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not really sounds from the tropics – but instead a great reworking of bossa and Latin modes – all done by the best 60s artists at Blue Note Records! The rhythms are what really make the set swing – as they have this hard edge that retains all the initial soulful inspiration of the American players – while also picking up some more complicated elements that really open up the groove – and pave the way for great solo work on trumpet, tenor, piano, and Hammond! Additionally, the set's got the pedigree of being one of the early Blue Note comps hand-picked for the hip London scene – and tracks include "Congalere" by Horace Parlan, "Back Down To The Tropics" by Charlie Rouse, "You're Everything" by Carmen McRae, "Afrodisia" by Kenny Dorham, "Sandalia Dela" by Duke Pearson, "Mambo Inn" by Grant Green, and "Latona" by John Patton.

The record features 5 long readings of classic Dameron compositions – like "The Scene Is Clean", "Fontainebleau", and "Delerium" – all played by a great little group that includes Dameron on piano, plus Joe Alexander on tenor, Sahib Shihab on alto, Kenny Dorham on trumpet, and Henry Coker on trombone.

New Joe GordonIntroducing Joe Gordon ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from bop trumpeter Joe Gordon! Gordon was a lost talent who only cut a handful of records before his untimely death in 1963 – but he was a heck of a trumpeter, with a rich talent that we'd rank up there with Lee Morgan and Kenny Dorham. Joe plays here in a group that includes Art Blakey on drums and Charlie Rouse on tenor – and the overall sound is right up there with the best raw bop on Blue Note or Prestige during the same time. Titles include "Toll Bridge", "Lady Bob", "Flash Gordon", "Xochimilco", and "Bus Bier". CD
