Kenny Baker/Bertie King GroupOperation Jam Session/Tribute To Benny Carter/Introducing The Don Harper Quintet ... CD
Nixa/Vocalion (UK), 1955/1956. Used ... $6.99
Great 50s work from British trumpeter Kenny Baker – plus some other surprises too! The first album on the set – Operation Jam Session – has Baker working with his Jazz Today Unit, a group that features work from Joe Harriott and Bertie King on alto saxes, Harry Klein on baritone, Jimmy Skidmore on tenor, and Keith Christie on trombone – all players who get some nice space to solo on the album's two jam session-styled tracks! Side one features a great "Ballad Medley" that has each soloist taking on a familiar standard over a vamp – and side two features "Blues In Threes", which has a great straight solo from Harriott. Next is Tribute To Benny Carter – a 10 minute take on "Symphony In Riffs", also played by the Jazz Today Unit, with Bertie King's alto sax standing in as Carter's horn on the set. The CD then features 6 more tracks from The Bertie King Jazz Group – with Baker on trumpet and Kenny Graham or Jimmy Skidmore on tenor – on titles that include "Lazy Afternoon", "Skip It", "Blue Interlude", and "Blue Lou". The CD closes with 4 more tracks from the Don Harper Quintet – a group that features Harper on violin, George Chisholm on trombone, and Ken Jones on piano – on titles that include "I'm Easy", "Just Rockin", "I May Be Wrong", and "Swinging That Old Grandfather Clock".

Kenny Barron & Buster WilliamsTwo As One ... CD
Red (Italy), 1986. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A wonderful little date from pianist Kenny Barron – one that has him working in drumless duo mode, with only the bass of Buster Williams for accompaniment! The tunes are often quite long, and it's beautiful to hear the way Kenny stretches out on the keys – buoyed up warmly by Williams' trademark tone – basslines that are soft on bite, and round on sound – drenched with soul throughout, and creating a subtle pulse that the presence of a drum would only ruin! Barron has a wonderful way of being pensive at points, while still moving things forward strongly – and titles include "All Of You", "This Time The Dream's On Me", "I Love You", and "My Funny Valentine".

Kenny BurrellBluesin Around ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1961/1962. New Copy ... $13.99
A rare treasure – material that Kenny Burrell recorded for Columbia in the early 60s, but which wasn't ever issued until an early 80s LP! Ostensibly, the sides were recorded around the same time as Kenny's Weaver Of Dreams album for Columbia (an obscure enough session in itself!) – and laid in the can for years, possibly because his use of vocals on that album was a bit of a failure. Fortunately, Kenny's just playing guitar on this album – and doing a mighty fine job, in small group settings that make the material some of his strongest since his late 50s sides for Blue Note. The album features 4 different groups – with players that include Jack McDuff on Hammond, Leo Wright on alto, Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Hank Jones on piano, and either Louis Hayes or Joe Dukes on drums. Titles include "The Switch", "Mambo Twist", "The Squeeze", "Bye & Bye", and "One Mint Julep". CD

Kenny BurrellGuitar Forms (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve, 1965. Used ... $9.99
Surprisingly wonderful work from Kenny! The album has Kenny's guitar set to arrangements by Gil Evans – who gives the session a modern edge that really sets it apart from other Burrell albums of the time. Kenny's freed to do his thing – wonderfully, we might add – and Gil paints these washes of sound, color, and tone with the help of hip players like Johnny Coles, Louis Mucci, Julius Watkins, Steve Lacy, Richie Kamuca, Elvin Jones, and Lee Konitz. Tracks include "Lotus Land", "Downstairs", "Moon & Sand", "Terrace Theme", "Greensleeves", and "Loie". Plus, the CD includes 10 bonus takes of tunes on the set – and comes in a great fold-out cardboard package! CD

New Kenny BurrellHave Yourself A Soulful Little Christmas ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Very Good- ... $9.99
Why thank you – we will! Kenny does too, as he grooves nicely and gently over arrangements by Richard Evans, perfectly crafted in that soul jazz mode of his 60s work for Chess – not Kenny's most challenging format, to be sure, but proof that he often works better in a more structured environment than a freer one. Titles include "Away In A Manger", "My Favorite Things", "Little Drummer Boy", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "Merry Christmas Baby", and "Go Where I Send Thee". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny BurrellKB Blues ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $19.99
A real hard-burner from Kenny Burrell – a set that was recorded for Blue Note in the guitarist's early career, but not issued by the label until the 70s – and even then only in Japan! Kenny's got the sharp edge and strong sense of leadership you'll hear on his classic Midnight Blue – and the lineup features strong tenor work from Hank Mobley, who seems to underscore the best elements in Burrell's tone – plus work from Horace Silver on piano – who plays with lots of soulful undercurrents, alongside Doug Watkins on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums! The record's got some slightly raspy edges, which may be why Blue Note originally held it back – but it's a real treasure for the deeper side of Kenny's tones – and titles include "Out For Blood", "Nica's Dream", "KB Blues", and "DB Blues".

Kenny BurrellLaid Back ... CD
32 Jazz, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $7.99
Obscure work from Kenny Burrell – material originally issued by Muse Records, most of it with a very laidback feel – as you'd guess from the title! The original sides were produced by Helen Keane, who'd done some of Bill Evans' greatest sets – and who had a real ear for the mellower side of the jazz spectrum. And for the record, she's got Kenny playing in a trio format that's very spacious – with only gentle accompaniment on bass and drums, and most of the sound on the set coming from the strings of Kenny's guitar. Following in the gentle spirit of the set, Kenny even plays an acoustic guitar on some numbers – making for a very different sound than usual. Some tracks are quite long, really letting Kenny open up on his solos – and titles include "So Little Time", "All Blues", "In A Mellow Tone", "In The Still Of The Night", "Tenderly", "Listen To The Dawn", and "You & The Night & The Music".

Cadet, 1959. Very Good- ... $7.99
One of Kenny's nicely grooving sides for Chess – recorded live at the Village Vanguard in 1959, with a trio that features Richard Davis on bass and Roy Haynes on drums. Haynes' free touch on the kit really opens up the style of Kenny's playing – free, light, and lyrical, yet still quite soulful and filled with rhythm. Titles include "All Night Long", "Trio", "Will You Still Be Mine", "Soft Winds", and "Well You Needn't". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny BurrellTender Gender ... CD
Cadet/Passion (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
Straight, strong, and soulful sounds from guitarist Kenny Burrell – quite possibly one of his best albums of the 60s, thanks to a really well-focused sound throughout! The groove here is nice and tight – a cooking little rhythm section that features Richard Wyands on piano, Martin Rivera on bass, and Oliver Jackson on drums – snapping away on the kit on some of the best tracks, and really helping Burrell to hit this groove that's mighty nice! Kenny seems to have a bit more bite than usual too – and even the laidback tunes have plenty going on to keep our ears happy. Titles include "La Petite Mambo", "Suzy", "The Tender Gender", "Girl Talk", "Isabella", "If Someone Had Told Me", and "Hot Bossa". CD

New Kenny Burrell with Frank WessMonday Stroll (aka Opus In Swing) ... LP
Savoy, 1957/1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
An expanded version of Opus In Swing – one of the greatest of the 50s Savoy "Opus" albums, and a loosely-done blowing session that's got a really unique feel! Instead of piano, the session features two guitarists – Kenny Burrell in lead and handling solos, and Freddie Greene comping in the background in a nicely rhythmic mode. Frank Wess plays flute throughout, and the mix of flute and two guitars is really wonderful – especially considering that the only other support they get here is from the bass of Eddie Jones and drums of Kenny Clarke. Tracks are all nice and long, and titles include "Wess Side", "East Wind", "Southern Exposure", and "Kansas City Side" – plus added tracks "Monday Stroll" and "Woolafunt's Lament".

New Kenny ClarkeBohemia After Dark ... CD
Savoy, 1955. Used ... $4.99
An excellent hardbop session from the glory days of the Savoy label – easily one of the label's key 50s classics! Drummer Kenny Clarke's at the front of the group – but all players are great, and the set features work by Cannonball Adderley on alto, Jerome Richardson on tenor, Donald Byrd on trumpet, Nat Adderley on cornet, Hank Jones or Horace Silver on piano, and Paul Chambers on bass. The Adderley brothers sound especially great – and the young Cannonball has a quality here that's more soulful and sharp-edged than his work on Mercury – much more in a Prestige blowing session style! Titles include "Late Entry", "Chasm", "Bohemia After Dark", and "Hear Me Talkin To Ya". CD

New Kenny CoxClap Clap – The Joyful Noise ... CD
Strata/180 Proof, 1974. New Copy ... $12.99
Amazing lost sounds from Detroit – a previously unissued album from pianist Kenny Cox – best known for his late 60s albums on Blue Note, but working here in a really righteous style, and using a fair bit of Fender Rhodes as well! The album's a lost gem from the Strata label – home to Lyman Woodard's Saturday Night Special album – and there's definitely a side to this record that's shared with that one – a bit more laidback, definitely, but equally soulful, and mixed with spiritual jazz elements that echo the style of Kenny's Tribe Records contemporaries on the Detroit scene. Other players include Charles Moore on flugelhorn, Buzz Jones on soprano sax and flute, Ron English on bass, and Skeets Curry on electric guitar – and in addition to Fender Rhodes, Cox also plays clavinet, mellotron, and Arp as well! The set's got a bit of vocals – from Fito Foster and Nengue Hernandez – but the main focus is instrumental, and the long tracks really have the group spinning out beautifully. Titles include "Clap Clap The Joyful Noise", "Samba De Romance", "Island Song", "Lost My Love", and "Beyond The Dream". CD

New Kenny DorhamRound About Midnight At The Cafe Bohemia Vol 1 ... CD
Blue Note, 1956. Used ... $3.99
One of our favorite albums ever by Kenny Dorham – and a really different session than his usual studio work! The album captures Kenny in a relaxed live setting, with a bit more dirt on his horn than usual – blowing with a tone that's much more open and a bit less poised – in the company of a really great group that features JR Monterose on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Bobby Timmons on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Arthur Edgehill on drums. The album features a really wonderful take on Dorham's boppish "Mexico City", plus other enigmatic compositions like "Monaco" and "Hill's Edge" – and versions of "Round Midnight" and "Autumn In New York".

Kenny DrewUndercurrent (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the greatest albums ever by pianist Kenny Drew – a record that's as noteworthy for the contributions of the sidemen as it is for the efforts of the leader! Drew's a player who often worked mostly in trio formats – but here, he's hitting hard with a righteous Blue Note power – thanks to the presence of Hank Mobley on tenor and Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, both of whom really give the record an edge! Drew's lyrical sensibilities are shifted to darker, more modern moments at times – and the rest of the group features Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. An essential addition to the Blue Note legacy of Mobley and Hubbard – and the set's filled with original tunes by Kenny, including "The Pot's On", "Undercurrent", "Funk-Cosity", and "Lion's Den".

Kenny Drew TrioJazz Impressions Of Pal Joey ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Very Good- ... $14.99
Familiar numbers – but done quite nicely, thanks to the warm early talents of Kenny Drew! The style here is a bit more lyrically evocative than some of the other Riverside piano work of the time – less modern-tinged, but still in a really expressive way that unlocks new corners of these great numbers from the original Rogers & Hart score to the musical Pal Joey! Drew's compadres for the session are Wilbur Ware on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – both of whom help illuminate the tunes with sly, but subtle touches. Titles include "Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered", "Happy Hunting Horn", "What Is A Man?", "Do It The Hard Way", "I Could Write A Book", and "My Funny Valentine". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Garrett with Pharoah SandersSketches Of MD – Live At The Iridium ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2008. Used ... $7.99
One of the most soulful sets we've heard from Kenny Garrett in years – thanks partly to the presence of Pharoah Sanders in his group! The tracks are all long and open, and really let both Garrett and Sanders get in plenty of solo space – often in ways that are a nice change from previous recordings. The lineup's a quintet – with Pharoah on tenor, and Kenny on both alto sax and bass clarinet, plus a bit of organ and synth as well – which makes for some sweet electric funky touches. Other players include Benito Gonzalez on piano and Fender Rhodes, Nat Reeves on bass, and Jamire Williams on drums – and titles include "The Ring", "Intro To Africa", "Wayne's Thang", and "Happy People".

Drummer Gerry Gibbs has a hell of a trio for this set – and a great batch of guests as well – all of whom help make some real magic on jazz instrumental versions of soul tunes from the 70s! The core trio features Kenny Barron on piano and Ron Carter on bass – both wonderfully sensitive players, without any of the "thrasher" qualities you might guess from the group's name on the cover – and some passages expand things with the addition of Warren Wolf on vibes, Steve Wilson on alto sax, and Larry Goldings on Hammond – all players we really love too. Titles include "Pick Up The Pieces", "Where Is The Love", "What's Going On", "Reasons", "Too High", "Fantasy", "Creepin", and "Brazilian Rhyme". CD

Kenny GrahamSmall World Of Sammy Lee ... CD
Trunk (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $15.99
A wonderful jazz soundtrack from the legendary Kenny Graham – the important postwar Brit bandleader who was known for his seminal Afro-Cubists group – heard here in a much different context! Kenny's still got all that great sense of tone and color he brought to some of his more powerful music – but he uses it here with a sensitivity that's really breathtaking – careful use of woodwind passages, percussion, and other light instrumentation – all used to illustrate the seamier underbelly of London in the early 60s! The tapes were thought lost for years, but have been marvelously reclaimed by the folks at Trunk Records – and although there's no historical record of the musicians on the date, we're guessing that they're the same top-shelf jazzmen who graced Kenny's other groups. Titles include "Patsy Asleep In The Flat", "Salt Beef", "Dash To Bellman's", "Four O'Clock Hop", "Thoughts At Home", "Peepshow Bins", and "Soho At Dawn". CD

SerengetiKenny Dennis III (limited colored vinyl) ... LP
Joyful Noise, 2014. New Copy 2LP ... $14.99
Serengeti is back with another genius showcase for his blue collar Chi alter ego Kenny Dennis – which is by this point, no fooling, one of the greatest character-driven rap projects since Kool Keith turned up as Dr. Octagon. What makes Kenny stick is the way Serengeti transcends schtick. Way back on the underground classic Dennehy, the character appeared as the smartest, sharpest, most dead-on satire of southside and south suburban working class Chicago as we'd heard in a long time, but it's far from a one trick pony. Since the mid 00s he's constructed an increasingly elaborate back story for the dude – with far more broadly-appealing rhymes and abstract storytelling that's a LOT more artful than merely a bunch of funny Chi references. It doesn't hurt that the Odd Nosdam production is timelessly brilliant – with appearances by Anders Holm and others – and titles that include "No Beginner", "Off/On", "Shidoshi", "Win Big", "Perfecto", "On The Road", "@ The Mall", "Buddy God", "Damn DZ", "Mr. Drummond", "Ain't No Joke", "Lose Big", "Parkour", "Need Clarity", "Tickled Pink" and more.

Only the second album as a leader from altoist Kenny Shanker – and already a great leap forward! The record features all original material penned by Shanker – really wonderful tunes that bring a freshness to the album right from the get-go, and which hold up strongly throughout! Instrumentation is from a core quintet – with Mike Eckroth on piano and Daisuke Abe on guitar – but some numbers have added percussion, which helps create a rhythmic complexity that really matches Kenny's fluid colors and tones on the alto! The leadoff track features Peyman Samghabadi on trombone – and titles include "Times Square", "Another Morning", "Action City", "Punch", "Shadow Dance", "Midnight", "Marble Hill", and "Riverbank At Dawn".

A wickedly romping bit of funk – a tune that begins with a tight blast of horns, then lays back into this bumping bassline that sets the track up with a James Brown feel! Kenny takes his time with the lyrics – almost as if he's thinking them up then making a statement – until the female backup singers come into the mix and help him send things home with the chorus. Drums are great, and get a workout on the second part – and the flipside features the sweet "One More Day" – which is almost a mix of funk and deep soul! 7-inch, Vinyl record

The set's got a hip small combo feel – like other great Prestige sides from Syms – and it's much groovier and more swinging that some of her other show-ish sort of records – lean vocal jazz with a very mature 60s approach!

The most astoundingly creative set of music ever from Kenny Wheeler – an emphatically emotional, bursting mix of freely expressive improvisation, acutely dramatic composed passages and genre-defying grandeur! Guggenheim Fellowship Award winner Werner here mixes jazz and classical, the latter with quite a sweep to it that sinks in deeply. The players include Joe Lovano on tenor and the voice of Judi Silvano, with an army of woodwinds and strings, who provide a soaring effect to say the least. Amazing work! Includes "Death Is Not The Answer", "Loved Ones", "The Gods Of Time", "Astral Journey", "Cry Out", "We Three", "Visitation: Waves of Unborn" and "Coda". CD

Wright Brothers, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99
The first full album we've heard from Kenny Wesley – a singer with a heck of a great vocal range, and a strong sense of personality too! The album's got a depth that goes way past the goofy image on the cover – as Wesley brings a jazz vocal sense of range to his singing, but mixes things with a heavier funk approach too – some bassy bits and tight drums that keep the tunes tight and snapping, but never in a way that's poppy or commercial. Instead, the whole thing bristles with freshness – just the right sort of album to announce Kenny as a bold newcomer, with a vibe that's all his own. Titles include "The Real Thing", "Taffy", "Feels Good", "The Window", "Closer", "Woman", "Tangled", "Sophisticated", and "Missin You". CD

Warmly expressive work from trumpeter Kenny Wheeler – a set that's got the same depth of tone as his work for other labels, but which has a bit of a different feel as well. The record has maybe a bit more bite – not necessarily on Wheeler's trumpet or flugelhorn, the latter of which still retains its wonderfully airy sound – but instead on the overall conception, which makes careful but creative use of other group members – especially John Taylor on piano and Dave Holland on bass, as well as Billy Elgart on drums, and Stan Sulzmann on soprano, tenor, and flute. All tunes are originals by Wheeler, and really lovely ones at that – and titles include "Gigolo", "The Little Fella", "Miold Man", "We Salute The Night", and "Everybody's Song But My Own".

Gearbox (UK), 2013. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A beautiful contemporary project from these two British jazz legends – one that definitely lives up to all their genius from earlier years – while finding a whole new level of expression! The album was done in collaboration with the London Vocal Project – a large group who are used here in a manner that's similar to some of the Donald Byrd "with voices" albums on Blue Note, or some of the Max Roach choral projects of the 60s. Winstone comes forth as the key soloist on some tracks – singing lyrics with this amazing quality that hasn't dimmed at all, with all the darkness we've always loved in her approach – and on other numbers the full chorus rises with the rhythms, propelling things forward alongside Wheeler's lines on flugelhorn – and the work of Mark Lockheart on saxes and Nikki Iles on piano. A stone classic, and a real surprise – with tracks that include "Black March", "The Hat", "The Broken Heart", "Breughel", and "The Lover Mourns". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Wollesen/Jonathon Haffner/Dalius NaujoRasa Rasa ... CD
Tzadik, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Compelling vocal work from Rasa Rasa – a set that has the core group working with a sextet of Lithuanian singers – in a mode that mixes timeless traditions with some unusual contemporary inflections! The singers work in a "round" style that has the vocals flowing together beautifully – in a mode that's vaguely similar to the Bulgarian female vocal style that hit worldwide fame a few decades back – but the approach here is always more intimate, then mixed with lots of instrumental contributions from the group, including some "wollesonics" invented by Kenny Wollesen himself. The album's one of the most interesting global experiments we've heard on Tzadik in years – and titles include "Dobilio", "Liepa", "Miezelis", "Ti Ti Ti", and "Augo Putins". CD

New Kenny BurrellKenny Burrell At The Five Spot Cafe (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1959. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the best Kenny Burrell albums ever! Kenny's in fine form in this rare live set, recorded in 1959 at the Five Spot with a group that includes the legendary Tina Brooks on tenor, plus Bobby Timmons or Roland Hanna on piano, Ben Tucker on bass, and Art Blakey on drums. The band is more firey than some of Kenny's other recordings – and that seems to drive him onto harder solos than usual, as you'll hear on tracks like "Birk's Works", "36-23-36", and "Hallelujah". Nice stuff! CD

Blue Note, 1955. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz West, 1956. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Quite a rare vocal jazz session – recorded for the short lived Jazz West label, which was one of the hippest LA imprints of the 50s! Jane Fielding's a pretty decent singer – with kind of a Chris Connor-ish style about her – but the real charm is from Kenny Drew's work as a pianist and arranger, both of which push the session past the usual sleepiness of a Bethlehem or Mode vocal jazz album from the time. Kenny's group features Joe Maini on alto, Ted Efantis on tenor, Lawrence Marable on drums, and either Leroy Vinnegar or Paul Chambers on bass. Titles include "Embers Glow", "Our Waltz", "Right Boy For Me", "Key Largo", "Make The Man Love Me", and "Round Midnight". LP, Vinyl record album

SerengetiKenny Dennis III ... CD
Joyful Noise, 2014. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Serengeti is back with another genius showcase for his blue collar Chi alter ego Kenny Dennis – which is by this point, no fooling, one of the greatest character-driven rap projects since Kool Keith turned up as Dr. Octagon. What makes Kenny stick is the way Serengeti transcends schtick. Way back on the underground classic Dennehy, the character appeared as the smartest, sharpest, most dead-on satire of southside and south suburban working class Chicago as we'd heard in a long time, but it's far from a one trick pony. Since the mid 00s he's constructed an increasingly elaborate back story for the dude – with far more broadly-appealing rhymes and abstract storytelling that's a LOT more artful than merely a bunch of funny Chi references. It doesn't hurt that the Odd Nosdam production is timelessly brilliant – with appearances by Anders Holm and others – and titles that include "No Beginner", "Off/On", "Shidoshi", "Win Big", "Perfecto", "On The Road", "@ The Mall", "Buddy God", "Damn DZ", "Mr. Drummond", "Ain't No Joke", "Lose Big", "Parkour", "Need Clarity", "Tickled Pink" and more.

A guided tour of one of the grooviest club labels ever – all at the hands of the legendary Kenny Dope! The incredibly well-priced package features 2 CDs worth of music – one disc with a 26 track mix of the best and rarest of the P&P Records catalog, and one disc featuring 13 of the label's best cuts, unmixed save for a few special Kenny Dope edits! The core mix is great enough – a mindblowing 76 minutes of music that steps along with that sweet, soulful, and moogy P&P Records groove – crafted way back in the late 70s by the legendary team of Patrick Adams and Peter Brown! And although there's been some other P&P collections over the years, the umixed disc features 4 tracks that have never been reissued before – plus some great lesser-known bits and edits! Titles include "Dance Dance Dance" by Martin Acuna, "African Rock" by Licky, "Dance To The Beat Freakout" by Wayne Ford, "Roller Rink Funk" by Shift, "Got To Get Your Love (Kenny Dope edit)" by Clyde Alexander & Sanction, "Dance Freak" by Chain Reaction, "Feel The Spirit (re-work)" by Foster Jackson Group, "It's So Good To Know" by Best Friend Around, "Game Of Life (re-edit)" by Lavaba & E Mallison, "The Groove I'm In" by Florence Miller, and "Shout At The Disco" by Little Scotty.

Blue Note, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great title for this sublime set of duo material – work that features Kenny Barron on piano and Dave Holland on bass – with no other instrumentation at all! Barron's a player who's always expansive, no matter what the setting – but hearing him in spare formation like this, we really fall in love with his work all over again – his wonderfully rich command of the keyboard, inherent sense of rhythm, and strong ability to paint in musical colors that never fail to delight! Holland's a revelation, too – with well-crafted, yet spare basslines – able to deliver more with less, at a level that's quite different than Dave's earlier work, and really shows so much growth – especially on the mellower moments, where he really shapes the sound of the record. Titles include "The Oracle", "Waltz For Wheeler", "The Only One", "Rain", and "Seascape". CD

Arrangements are by Don Sebesky – in that warm and fluid mode he was bringing to some of his best CTI sides at the time – and they push Kenny a bit more than usual, as he stretches out over the larger arrangements with some really great solo work that dips, turns, and rolls with incredibly warm hues of sound. Kenny plays solo on 2 tracks, and with a smaller quartet on a few more – and titles include "Night Song", "Love You Madly", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Brother Where Are You?", "Nighthawk", and "Teach Me Tonight".

Strata/180 Proof, 1974. Used 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing lost sounds from Detroit – a previously unissued album from pianist Kenny Cox – best known for his late 60s albums on Blue Note, but working here in a really righteous style, and using a fair bit of Fender Rhodes as well! The album's a lost gem from the Strata label – home to Lyman Woodard's Saturday Night Special album – and there's definitely a side to this record that's shared with that one – a bit more laidback, definitely, but equally soulful, and mixed with spiritual jazz elements that echo the style of Kenny's Tribe Records contemporaries on the Detroit scene. Other players include Charles Moore on flugelhorn, Buzz Jones on soprano sax and flute, Ron English on bass, and Skeets Curry on electric guitar – and in addition to Fender Rhodes, Cox also plays clavinet, mellotron, and Arp as well! The set's got a bit of vocals – from Fito Foster and Nengue Hernandez – but the main focus is instrumental, and the long tracks really have the group spinning out beautifully. Titles include "Clap Clap The Joyful Noise", "Samba De Romance", "Island Song", "Lost My Love", and "Beyond The Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

Drew's a player who often worked mostly in trio formats – but here, he's hitting hard with a righteous Blue Note power – thanks to the presence of Hank Mobley on tenor and Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, both of whom really give the record an edge! Drew's lyrical sensibilities are shifted to darker, more modern moments at times – and the rest of the group features Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. An essential addition to the Blue Note legacy of Mobley and Hubbard – and the set's filled with original tunes by Kenny, including "The Pot's On", "Undercurrent", "Funk-Cosity", and "Lion's Den". CD

Lem's got a nicely punctuated feel to his vibes on the record – a tight, short punch that works beautifully alongside Scott's fluid Hammond lines – almost enough on their own, even without the rhythm help of George Duvivier on bass and Art Edgehill on drums. Tracks include "Blues For Tyrone", "The More I See You", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Like Young", and "Sonnymoon For Two". Also includes the bonus track "Now's The Time", recorded at the same session. CD

For this album, the group adds in two harpists and one additional musician on bells and vibes – which only makes the sound more incredible – and titles include "Apocryphon", "The Divine Word", "Gnostic Hymn", "Into The Light", "Perfect Mind", and "Providence".

The music draws inspiration from The Song Of Solomon, but only at a very spiritual level – and titles include "Tappuha", "Berotim", "Otyah", "Sammatek", and "Alamot". CD

Maini clocks in one of his best performances ever, matching Drew's firey work on the keys with some tight well-toned solos that pack an incredible punch that reminds us of Sonny Criss – supported strongly by some hard and heavy work from Drew and the rhythm section. Many titles are originals, and tracks include "Talkin-Walkin", "In The Prescribed Manner", "Deadline", "Hidden Channel", and "Walkin-Talkin".

The format's a bit similar to other American tenor dates of the time – especially those of Dexter Gordon – as Drew's trio – with Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Albert Heath on drums – provides a solid rhythmic groove while Mobley really stretches out with long-spun solos on some extended tracks! The format's very different than most other recordings that Hank made in the 60s – especially during these later years – and although the date has a bit of a "broadcast" quality from the way it was recorded, Mobley's tenor shines through on long readings of "Summertime", "Workout", "Blue Bossa", and "Alone Together".

Prestige, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sublime late 50s hardbop – recorded in the best Prestige blowing session mode! The record has an incredibly open-ended feel – as you might probably guess from the track "All Night Long", which runs for all of side one, and gives all the players included plenty of room to work out their best solo moments! Members of the group here include Kenny Burrell on guitar, Hank Mobley on tenor, Jerome Richardson on flute and tenor, Donald Byrd on trumpet, and Mal Waldron on piano – really holding the whole thing together with his dark lines on the keys! The groove is laidback, but never sloppy – and the spaciousness of side one is matched by 3 shorter tracks on side two – "Boo Lu", "Flickers", and "Little Hankie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing in a green cover, with some wear and a cutout hole.)

New Kenny DorhamAfro-Cuban (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1955. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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". 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!)

New Kenny DrewKenny Drew By Request ... CD
Baystate (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The album's got kind of a goofy cover image – one that's hardly representative of Kenny Drew's audience in the 1980s – but despite that flaw, it's a really great album of straight ahead tracks – and one in which Kenny follows an old approach to record from Oscar Peterson, by playing versions of tunes for which he often gets the most requests! Drew's in a mode that's sometimes contemplative, sometimes leaping forward boldly – not unlike his later European recordings – and the trio here features Ed Thigpen on drums and Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass. Titles include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "My Funny Valentine", "Round Midnight", "Fly Me To The Moon", and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To". CD

New Kenny GarrettPushing The World Away ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bold, soulful sounds from altoist Kenny Garrett – a player who've loved for many years, and one who can still hold our ears after so many recordings! Garrett's had plenty of fame, but he's also held onto the roots that made him so great in the first place – a spiritual undercurrent that's really come back to his music, in ways that are a bit similar to the later turns taken by Gary Bartz in the 90s! In other words, Kenny can blow smooth when he wants to, but impresses us the most when he's really taking off – which he does often and with great spirit in this set that also features piano from Vernell Brown and Benito Gonzalez, bass from Corcoran Holt, and drums from Marcus Baylor and Mark Whitefield Jr. Garrett plays piano on one track – and other guests include Rudy Bird on percussion, McClenty Hunter on vocals and drums, and Ravi Best on trumpet. Titles include "That's It", "Lincoln Center", "A Side Order Of Hijiki", "Hey Chick", and "Pushing The World Away". CD

New Kenny GrahamSmall World Of Sammy Lee ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful jazz soundtrack from the legendary Kenny Graham – the important postwar Brit bandleader who was known for his seminal Afro-Cubists group – heard here in a much different context! Kenny's still got all that great sense of tone and color he brought to some of his more powerful music – but he uses it here with a sensitivity that's really breathtaking – careful use of woodwind passages, percussion, and other light instrumentation – all used to illustrate the seamier underbelly of London in the early 60s! The tapes were thought lost for years, but have been marvelously reclaimed by the folks at Trunk Records – and although there's no historical record of the musicians on the date, we're guessing that they're the same top-shelf jazzmen who graced Kenny's other groups. Titles include "Patsy Asleep In The Flat", "Salt Beef", "Dash To Bellman's", "Four O'Clock Hop", "Thoughts At Home", "Peepshow Bins", and "Soho At Dawn". LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball & Nat AdderleySummer Of 1955 (Bohemia After Dark/Spontaneous Combustion/That's Nat) ... CD
Savoy, 1955. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 24.98
A triple-header of hardbop albums – a great package that features 3 Savoy Records classics from 1955, with bonus tracks and great notes too! First up is Bohemia After Dark – an excellent hardbop session from the glory days of the Savoy label – easily one of the label's key 50s classics! Drummer Kenny Clarke's at the front of the group – but all players are great, and the set features work by Cannonball Adderley on alto, Jerome Richardson on tenor, Donald Byrd on trumpet, Nat Adderley on cornet, Hank Jones or Horace Silver on piano, and Paul Chambers on bass. The Adderley brothers sound especially great – and the young Cannonball has a quality here that's more soulful and sharp-edged than his work on Mercury – much more in a Prestige blowing session style! Titles include "Late Entry", "Chasm", "Bohemia After Dark", and "Hear Me Talkin To Ya". Next is more material from the same stretch, originally issued under the title Spontaneous Combustion under Cannonball's name. Adderley and his alto sax are joined by Donald Byrd on trumpet, Nat Adderley on cornet, Jerome Richardson on tenor sax and flute, Horace Silver on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums. The tracks include "Spontaneous Combustion", "Caribbean Cutie", "A Little Taste", "We'll Be Together Again", "Still Talkin To Ya", and "Flamingo". Last up is the album That's Nat – a real smoker from a young Nat Adderley – a session that has the leader on cornet, working in a tight hardbop combo with Jerome Richardson on tenor and flute, Hank Jones on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums! The tracks are all nicely sharp-edge – that soulful Savoy sound of the mid 50s – and Richardson is especially nice, really getting a great sound from both his tenor and flute. Tracks are somewhat long, with good room for solos – and titles include "Porky", "I Married An Angel", "Kuzzin's Buzzin's", and "You Better Go Now". CD
