Kenny Baker/Bertie King GroupOperation Jam Session/Tribute To Benny Carter/Introducing The Don Harper Quintet ... CD
Nixa/Vocalion (UK), 1955/1956. Used ... $12.99
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".

Kay Dee, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $2.99
A sweet disco cut from Maynard Parker – a cut that really takes on a whole new life here in Kenny Dope's mix! The track starts with some stark, pounding beats – almost pre-house in construction, and peppered with piano riffs and cowbell bits before giving way to some breathy, sexy vocals! Nice and warm, and plenty darn soulful – and an album's worth of masterpiece packed inside the space of a single! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Kenny BurrellAll Night Long ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good ... $14.99
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

Kenny BurrellBlue Lights Vol 1 & 2 ... CD
Blue Note/Jazz Heritage, 1958. Used 2CD ... $19.99
Some of Kenny's best recordings – especially from the early days! The albums contained on this 2CD set feature Kenny in the company of some of the best late 50's players at Blue Note. Junior Cook and Tina Brooks are on tenor, Duke Jordan or Bobby Timmons play piano, Louis Smith plays trumpet on some tracks, Sam Jones is on bass, and Art Blakey is on drums throughout. The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings. The 2-in-1 combo is a nice idea, too – and it gives you all 9 long tracks from these two rare albums, including "Rock Salt", "Chuckin", "Scotch Blues", and "Phinupi". CD

Verve/MGM, 1965. Used ... $4.99
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". CD

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 ... $8.99
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".

Kenny BurrellNight Song ... LP
Verve, 1968. Very Good ... $6.99
A great title for this one – as the album's got a cool, laidback groove that's very much in a "night song" mode! 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".

Cadet, 1967. Used ... $11.99
Less of the bop tribute that you might think – given the title – and more of a groovy batch of jazz tracks, with arrangements by Richard Evans, in the soulful bouncy style that was his best standard for mid 60s work at Chess! Evans' work is what really makes the record sparkle – and Kenny's soloing here in a Verve-ish mode, floating over the top of a variety of material, both mellow and upbeat. Side one features the extended "Suite For Guitar & Orchestra" – and side two features "I Want My Baby Back", "Soulero", "Con Alma", and "Blues Fuse". CD

New Kenny Burrell with the Jack McDuff QuartetCrash! ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Kenny Burrell joins the quartet of Hammond hero Brother Jack McDuff – in a session that's not only a classic Prestige cooker from the 60s, but also one of Kenny's most hard grooving albums of the decade! Jack's tight group really seem to push Burrell into some great new territory – a different groove than his Blue Note or Verve sides, with a bit more grit overall – although still plenty of those perfectly-chosen notes on his solos. Harold Vick's tenor sax is the main reed element here, although Eric Dixon also plays flute on one track – and remaining players include Joe Dukes on drums and Ray Barreto on congas, a player who didn't often work with Jack, but who's very welcome here. Tracks are longish, with an open-ended soul jazz feel – not really blowing session numbers, given McDuff's tight sense of rhythm, but a nice change from the usual. Titles include "Grease Monkey", "Nica's Dream", "Love Walked In", and "We'll Be Together Again". CD

Kenny ClarkeKenny Clarke Meets The Detroit Jazzmen ... CD
Savoy/Nippon (Japan), 1956. Used ... $13.99
One of the first albums from guitarist Kenny Burrell as a leader – a date that has him working with players from his hometown scene in Detroit – in case you couldn't guess from the title! Kenny's style here is a bit different than on the Blue Note dates of the time – almost a bit more personal, and leaner – which is a surprise, given the usual heavier feel of a Savoy session. Other players include Pepper Adams on baritone, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – and before you complain, we know that not all of these guys are from Detroit – but that's the way they titled the thing, so you'll have to write to the label! Adams is a bit down in the mix, so he never over-dominates Burrell's tone – but he still gets plenty of space to sparkle on his solos, working with those sharp edges that make his Savoy appearances so great. Titles include "Your Host", "Afternoon In Paris", "Apothegh", "Cottontail", and "Tom's Thumb". CD

Savoy, 1955. Used ... $5.99
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 features the bonus track "Caribbean Cutie". CD

Kenny CoxIntroducing Kenny Cox & the Contemporary Jazz Quartet ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good ... $19.99
An overlooked late 60s treasure on Blue Note – one of the few new groups to work on the label at the time, and an up-and-coming modern combo from Detroit! The album's quite unique for a number of reasons – not just because the group was a little-known new signing to the label, but also because the work is quite far-reaching at times – some of the most free-thinking jazz recorded for Blue Note during the time, with a sense of boldness that almost stretches back to Jackie McLean's first few records of the new thing years, or a sense of lyrical invention that's a bit like Wayne Shorter when he made a shift towards the outside. Some numbers are awash in fast colors and changes, while others are a bit more in the pocket, with echoes of soul jazz – but the whole thing's incredibly fresh and free, a wonderful little record that only gets better and better over the years! The group features pianist Kenny Cox as the leader, plus Charles Moore on trumpet, Leon Henderson on tenor, Ron Brooks on bass, and Danny Spencer on drums. Titles include "Mystique", "You", "Trance Dance", "Eclipse", and "Number Four". LP, Vinyl record album

A totally great little package – one that has Kenny Dope going back to the original tapes used in the famous hip hop film Wild Style – then mixing down all the best bits to focus on the breaks! The original grooves were laid down by Fab 5 Fredy and Chris Stein – whose guitar brings a lot of unique funky elements to the music – and Kenny Dope really makes the best of it, and the set's arguably even greater than the original Wild Style record! Titles include "Military Cut", "Subway Beat", "Down By Law", "Crime Cut", "Gangbusters", "Meetings", "Baby Beat", "Yawning Beat", and "Razor Cut". Comes in a very cool 7" book-style package – like the Complete Motown Singles series, but vinyl – with seven individual funky 45s – plus a 28 page book with interviews and photos! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

Baystate (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $15.99
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

One of the greatest albums ever by pianist Kenny Drew – a super-rare Blue Note session from 1960! The album's got a sock-solid soul jazz frontline – with Hank Mobley on tenor and Freddie Hubbard on trumpet – and working here with Drew, the trio of players craft a set of tunes that are surprisingly edgey, especially considering Drew's more staid piano trio work on his own. The backing is great, too – with Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums – and the album's filled with original tunes by Kenny, including "The Pot's On", "Undercurrent", "Funk-Cosity", and "Lion's Den".

Riverside, 1957. Very Good- ... $24.99
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

Mack Avenue, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
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

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

New Shirley Scott with Kenny Burrell & Lem WinchesterSoul Sister – Legends Of Acid Jazz (Travelin Light/Soul Sister) ... CD
Prestige, 1960/1964. Used ... $7.99
Two Shirley Scott classics – back to back on a single CD! First up is Travelin Light. Kenny Burrell joins the trio of organist Shirley Scott for this sweet little album – a set that seems to burn a bit more than usual for Shirley, probably because of the cool-toned guitar lines from Kenny! The album's got the same laid back feel as other Scott albums of the time, but Burrell really digs in during his solos – adding a bit more bite, and inspiring Shirley to do the same on her own Hammond lines. Bass is by Eddie Khan and drums are by Otis Finch – and titles include "Solar", "The Kerry Dance", "They Call It Stormy Monday", "Nice N Easy", and "Baby It's Cold Outside". Next up is Soul Sister – a record that has Shirley Scott getting some mighty cool help from vibist Lem Winchester – a player whose tones always make a session worth checking out! 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

Kenny SmithGo For Yourself (parts 1 & 2)/One More Day ... 7-inch
Soul 7 (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Kenny WesleyReal Thing ... 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

Kenny Wheeler QuintetFlutter By Butterfly (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
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".

Kenny Wheeler/Norma WinstoneMirrors (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 2013. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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

One of the most beautiful groups that John Zorn's been working with in recent years – a heavenly trio that features Bill Frisell on guitar, Kenny Wollesen on vibes, and Carol Emanuel on harp – all working together with a very unique sound! The mix of instruments is wonderful throughout – unlike anything else we've ever heard (save the previous records by the trio) – with the vibes ringing out in bold, chromatic hues – echoed by Frisell's guitar, and then given these gentler plucked undercurrents by the harp – all at a level that's jazzier than some of John Zorn's other compositional projects, but still with a unique style of its own. 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

Kay Dee, 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
A treasure trove of rare funk – all hand-picked by Keb Darge and Kenny Dope, two names we trust more than most when it comes to rare funk! Most of these tracks are of 70s vintage, and a handful are presented here in new edits by Kenny – not remixes, and very much in the spirit of the original 45s – but re-presented in ways that bring up the funkiest bits from the bottom! The sound quality here is great – often much clearer than the original 45s – and the package is even better than the first set – a much-needed dose of the funky Kay Dee sound for the CD market. Titles include Kenny Dope mixes of "Save The Youth" by Mellow Madness, "I Wanna Be Loved By You" by Family Of Eve, "Puddin" by Belle Farms Estate, "Shed A Tear" by Rickey Calloway, "Keep Her Happy" by Phillip Wright, and "Masterpiece" by Clarence Reid – plus the cuts "Latin Freak" by 7 Miles Per Hour Band, "Lay It On Me" by Willie Johnson, "I'm Your Man" by Spade Brigade, "Super Strut" by Kashmere Stage Band, and "What It Takes To Live" by Chosen Few Band.

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.

A rare treasure – material that Kenny Burrell recorded for Columbia in the early 60s, but which wasn't ever issued until this 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 dismal 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, Leo Wright, Joe Dukes, Louis Hayes, Hank Jones, and Illinois Jacquet. Titles include "The Switch", "Mambo Twist", "The Squeeze", "Bye & Bye", and "One Mint Julep". CD

The album's got a sock-solid soul jazz frontline – with Hank Mobley on tenor and Freddie Hubbard on trumpet – and working here with Drew, the trio of players craft a set of tunes that are surprisingly edgey, especially considering Drew's more staid piano trio work on his own. The backing is great, too – with Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums – and the album's filled with original tunes by Kenny, including "The Pot's On", "Undercurrent", "Funk-Cosity", and "Lion's Den".

Kenny cut this album with John Coltrane in 1958 – and the session's a real standout in both of their careers at the time – Kenny's, for being a well-crafted, highly-focused effort – and Coltrane's, for being a unique outing with a guitar, but one that's done with the same deep-spirited sound of his best work for Prestige. The group's a quintet, with Tommy Flanagan, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb in the rhythm section – and titles include "Big Paul", "Lyresto", "Why Was I Born?", "I Never Knew", and "Freight Trane".

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

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

Some of Kenny's best recordings – especially from the early days! The albums contained on this 2CD set feature Kenny in the company of some of the best late 50's players at Blue Note. Junior Cook and Tina Brooks are on tenor, Duke Jordan or Bobby Timmons play piano, Louis Smith plays trumpet on some tracks, Sam Jones is on bass, and Art Blakey is on drums throughout. The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings. The 2-in-1 combo is a nice idea, too – and it gives you all 9 long tracks from these two rare albums, including "Rock Salt", "Chuckin", "Scotch Blues", and "Phinupi". CD

Though Burrell's name got top billing on subsequent issues of this album, and his playing is wonderful, Waldron's the great unsung hero of these sessions, as his playing's consistently remarkable, providing great accompaniment for the horn players.

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.

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.

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

New MocamboNext Message (Kenny Dope mix, Kenny Dope dub) (green vinyl) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, 2009. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Mocambo combo gets the Kenny Dope treatment – in a wicked cover of the hip hop classic "The Message"! The tune's an instrumental here, and the groove is played live – but it's got a nice similarity to the Grandmaster Flash original, complete with that vamping bit on the chorus! Drums are nice and hard – mixed up strongly by Kenny – and there's an extended break near the end! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Kenny Burrell & Jimmy SmithBlue Bash ... LP
Verve, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great meeting between Kenny Burrell and Jimmy Smith – and a set that's one of Jimmy's standout small combo sessions for Verve! The feel here is much more Jimmy Smith at Blue Note than some of the bigger group Verve dates of the 60s – and Kenny Burrell's sensitive guitar lines provide wonderful company for Smith on the date – shading in his Hammond lines with a nice sense of color, in ways that really fit the late nite setting of the record. Other players on the date include either Bill English or Mel Lewis on drums, George Duvivier or Milt Hinton on bass, Vince Gambella on guitar, and Art Marotti on percussion – and titles include "Kenny's Sound", "Blues For Del", "Blue Bash", "Travelin", and "Soft Winds".

New Jimmy Owens-Kenny Barron QuintetYou Had Better Listen ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
An oft-overlooked and surprisingly soulful session on Atlantic – a sublime pairing of the talents of trumpeter Jimmy Owens and pianist Kenny Barron! The set's got a groove that's pretty unique – not really Blue Note or Prestige – but not like other Atlantic Records jazz as well – almost more like some of the more soulful sides that would emerge in the early 70s! The combo is great – and also features Benny Maupin on reeds and Freddy Waits on drums – and the tracks are all longish, with interwoven modal grooves that show off the best of Barron's rhythmic approach to the piano – nicely punctuated by Owens' fiercely blown solos. The whole thing's incredibly fresh – one of those jazz albums that you'll hear on the radio, and turn it up, thinking "What the heck is that? I must own that record!" Titles include "You Had Better Listen", "Gichi", and "Carolina John". LP, Vinyl record album

New Kenny BurrellMidnight Blue (180 gram gatefold pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Great great stuff – and for some folks, THE album by Kenny Burrell! This classic set features the guitarist in a quintet with Stanley Turrentine on tenor, Major Holly on bass, Bill English on drums, and the great Ray Barretto on conga – a really great lineup that sparkles with soulful imagination, and moves with a very rhythmic groove – thanks to Ray's extra percussion contribution on the bottom! Burrell's guitar somehow seems a bit harder and grittier than ever – and titles include the classic groover "Chittlins Con Carne", an early jazz dance classic – plus "Soul Lament", "Wavy Gravy", and "Mule". LP, Vinyl record album
(Amazing limited edition reissue pressing – with heavy vinyl and gatefold cover!)

New Funky NassauBahama Soul Stew (Kenny Dope edit)/Look At What You Can Get (Kenny Dope edit) (black vinyl) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer Miami soul – re-edited by Kenny Dope! Funky Nassau have a groove here that's very much in Beginning Of The End territory (were they the same group) – a hard-riffing approach to funk that has guitar running up and down with the beats in a super-fast way that's clearly inspired by Caribbean influences, but which also has plenty of good ol' American funk! "Bahama Soul Stew" is simply incredible – a mix of "Funky Nassau" and "Memphis Soul Stew" that has plenty of hard drums and great bass – and "Look What You Can Get" is a wicked party cut that features some great raspy vocals and crowd noises! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Please note: Some of these singles have the labels on the wrong side. "Look At What You Can Get" is the vocal tune.)

New Clarence ReidMasterpiece (Kenny Dope edit, Kenny Dope beats) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest tunes ever from Clarence Reid – served up here with a Kenny Dope edit that kicks up the beats even more! The track does a great job of mixing southern soul with a harder, heavier groove – one that's got a famous vamp on the break – which is taken to extremes on the bonus beats on side two! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Kenny BarronSunset To Dawn ... LP
Muse, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sublime 70s work from Kenny Barron – a record that really has him stretching out strongly from his roots in the 60s, and sounding almost even more inventive than on some of his later material as well! Kenny's playing a fair bit of keyboards on the set – showing a wonderful sensitivity for electric modes, in ways that are quite different than some of his contemporaries – very cool, and often spacey, but in really unique sort of ways! Acoustic piano figures into the mix as well – and is layered beautifully along contributions from group members who include Bob Cranshaw on bass, Freddy Waits on drums, Warren Smith on vibes, and Richard Landrum on percussion – a hornless but very full sounding group. The set includes the great groover "Swamp Demon" and the very well-sampled "Sunset", plus "Al-Kifha", "Delores St SF", and "Dawn". LP, Vinyl record album

New Kenny Burrell & Grover Washington Jr.Togethering (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Grover Washington Jr on Blue Note – but sounding really great here in the company of guitarist Kenny Burrell – very much back to the more basic reed work of his roots, and away from some of the smoother settings of his bigger dates from a few years before! Kenny's well-crafted guitar lines really direct the set – spinning out with energy and soul, and shaping the sound in tones that work especially well with Washington's soprano sax lines. The rest of the group features Ron Carter on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – and titles include "Togethering", "Daydream", "Sails Of Your Soul", "Soulero", and "What Am I Here For". CD features the bonus tracks "Summertime" and "I'm Glad There Is You". CD

New Kenny Clarke, Bud Powell, Jimmy Woode, & OthersAmericans In Europe Vol 1 ... CD
Impulse/GRD, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
If you read these pages often enough, you'll know that we're big fans of recordings made by American expatriot players while living in Europe during the 60's. The European rhythm sections often bring out new elements of their playing, and the interaction with European soloists hits modes that we sometimes don't hear on American recordings by the same artists. This series of live recordings from Germany in 1963 brings together an array of players that includes Kenny Clarke, Bud Powell, Jimmy Woode, Lou Bennett, Jimmy Gourley, Joe Harris, and Herb Geller. The cd's got a nice organ version of Horace Silver's "No Smokin", plus 2 Bill Smith originals ("Freeway" and "Pyramid"), and a haunting version of "Round Midnight" with Bud Powell and trio. 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!)
