Kenny Baker/Bertie King GroupOperation Jam Session/Tribute To Benny Carter/Introducing The Don Harper Quintet ... CD
Nixa/Vocalion (UK), 1955/1956. Used ... $9.99
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 BurrellAll Night Long ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good ... $11.99
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

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".

Blue Note, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
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".

New Kenny BurrellNight At The Vanguard ... LP
Argo, 1959. Very Good- ... $11.99
A hip live date from Kenny Burrell – recorded with a trio that includes Richard Davis on bass and Roy Haynes on drums – both of whom help Kenny find a groove that's a bit lighter and more fluid than usual! The rhythms here are quite gentle, almost spare at times – and always touched with Haynes' great sense of lyricism. Kenny's guitar lines are right out front, freely flowing with plenty of warm chromatic hues, and styles that echo a bit more modernism than we've heard in other work of his from the late 50s. Titles include "Well You Needn't", "Trio", "All Night Long", and "Soft Winds". LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... $9.99
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

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 Al Cohn, Phil Woods, Kenny Dorham, and othersBirdland Stars On Tour Vol 1 ... LP
RCA, 1956. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A really great little live jazz date from the mid 50s – one that features a unique pairing of east and west coast players, working together as part of a Birdland Stars package tour! The group's an exceptionally balanced one – with players who are all strong enough to work together seamlessly, but who each bring together something different to the date – especially in the blend of west coast cool and east coast hot that comes up during some of the horn passages! Trumpets are by Kenny Dorham and Conte Candoli, tenor by Al Cohn, alto by Phil Woods, piano by Hank Jones, bass by John Simmons, and drums by Kenny Clarke – and with a balance like that, there's probably a bit more "east" than "west" on the set – but that's ok with us! The style is similar to some of the RCA work cut by Cohn or Woods, but a lot more open overall – tracks that are looser and less arranged, with some really great room for solos. Titles include "Phil Er Up", "Roulette", "Last Lap", and "Minorin The Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1969. Very Good ... $14.99
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

Blue Note, 1955. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
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

The record features a group with Jackie McLean on alto, Bobby Timmons on piano, Teddy Smith on bass, and JC Moses on drums – all working with Kenny in a slightly Latin tinged mode that features some really shimmering trumpet work! The record features a stunning 3 part reading of McLean's haunting tune "Melanie" (done under his name on the album A Fickle Sonance) – plus the tracks "Prelude", "El Matador", "Smile", and "There Goes My Heart".

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 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".

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.

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

Criteria/World Record Club (UK), 1960. Very Good+ ... $13.99
An incredible record from a very unlikely source – the Miami scene of the early 60s, home to some vastly under-recognized players! The genius here is arranger Don Vincent – who put together this beautiful batch of larger group tunes with a flair that easily rivals the best LA work of the late 50s, and which has the depth, hues, and breakout solo moments of the best work of west coast talents like Johnny Mandel or Leith Stevens, especially on their soundtrack albums. In fact, there's a richly soundtrack-like quality here – one that uses the slightly longer tracks as a showcase for particularly expressive moments by the soloists – who include pianist Kenny Drew, making an unusual appearance here, as well as some lesser-known but equally great talents on horns that include Lon Norman on trombone, Gene Goe on trumpet, and Jerry Brockman, Gus Mas, Berry Polger, Jimmy Casals, Billy Miller, and Kirby Campbell as members of the album's incredible saxophone section. Titles include the Vincent originals "Black Pits Of Luna", "Off The Grate", "Don's Idea", "Euology", and "Waltz For Stephen". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... $6.99
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!"

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!

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 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".

VariousKenny Dope & Keb Darge Presents Kay Dee Records Vol 2 ... 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.

P&P, Late 70s/2005. Used 2CD ... $6.99
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.

Columbia (Japan), 1961/1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

A really sweet little album from guitarist Kenny Burrell – one in which he takes older tunes ("a generation ago"), and updates them with a sweetly compressed Verve 60s groove ("today"!) The record features 2 small groups – one with Ron Carter, Grady Tate, and Phil Woods; the other with Carter, Tate, and Richard Wyands – and the style is light, laidback, and recorded with a warm tone overall – in a mode that's almost a precursor to the CTI sound of the late 60s. Mike Maineri joins on vibes on one track – and titles include "Wholly Cats", "Rose Room", "As Long As I Live", and "A Smooth One". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

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".

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".

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". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

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!

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

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

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.

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". CD

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

Killer work from a group of American players who've all found a strong outlet for their talents on the Red Records label – an Italian company, but one that's really done a great job of keeping the fires going for players who sometimes don't get as much of a chance to record in the US! Every member of the group here is great – Jerry Bergonzi on tenor, Bobby Watson on alto and soprano, Kenny Barron on piano, Victor Lewis on drums, and either Curtis Lundy or David Finck on bass. The tunes are mostly originals by group members, which further makes the set sparkle – giving it a sense of originality that's quite different than the usual standards that seem to come up on other all-star sessions. Watson's horns, as always, are great – and Bergonzi's deeper tones provide a great sense of balance – all warmed up nicely by Barron's piano.

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

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 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 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 Belle Farms EstatePuddin (Kenny Dope main mix, Kenny Dope inst) ... 12-inch
Kay Dee, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

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!)
