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 ... $9.99
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

New 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 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".

New Kenny BurrellKenny Burrell At The Five Spot Cafe (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1959. Used ... $14.99
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

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".

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".

Kenny BurrellNight Song ... LP
Verve, 1968. Very Good ... $4.99
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".

Kenny BurrellOde To 52nd Street ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Near Mint- ... $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". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Kenny CoxClap Clap – The Joyful Noise (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Strata/180 Proof, 1974. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Kenny Drew gets a spot of great guest help here – the legendary Toots Thieleman on guitar and harmonica – joining a core trio that also includes Niel Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums! Toots only shows up on two of the album's eight tracks, but really makes them sparkle – adding a sweet dose of color to the already great, well-honed rhythms of the group. Titles include "Journey's End Blues", "Easy Flight", "Take The A Train", "Concierto E Aranjuez", and "Trippin". CD

Kenny Drew TrioJazz Impressions Of Pal Joey ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Very Good- ... $19.99
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

New Jane Fielding with The Kenny Drew QuintetEmbers Glow ... LP
Jazz West, 1956. Very Good- ... $149.99
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
(Original pressing! Vinyl is nice overall – but there is groove damage for a few spins on one track, making crackles – but rest of record is nice, really more of a VG. Cover has just the start of some seam splitting, but is nice overall too.)

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".

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

One of the sharper-edged sessions on the GRP label at the start of the 90s – a self-titled set from keyboardist Kenny Kirkland, who's mostly working here in a stripped-down acoustic mode! The lineup changes a bit from track to track – and in addition to Kenny on keys, the set also features Jeff Tain Watts on drums, Branford Marsalis on tenor and soprano sax, Charnett Moffet on bass, and Don Alias and Jerry Gonzalez on percussion. Some tracks are quite spare – one number is even just a drum solo by Watts – and there's a slightly modern undercurrent at points, as you might find in Marsalis family music of the same point – nothing that's ever too out, but a slightly dark edge that adds a bit more depth than you might expect. Titles include "Celia", "Chance", "Midnight Silence", "El Rey", "Mr JC", "Criss Cross", "Revelations", and "Ana Maria". 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

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". LP, Vinyl record album

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! Burrell's on all numbers, but Bucky Pizzarelli also plays on a few too – and titles include "As Long As I Live", "How Insensitive", "If You Could See Me Now", "More Than You Know", "Meditation", and "Wild Is The Wind".

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".

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

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.

New Kenny Barron & Dave HollandArt Of Conversation ... CD
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

Columbia (Japan), 1961/1962. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

New Hank Mobley with The Kenny Drew TrioBlue Bossa (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A rare live appearance from the great Hank Mobley – a player who wasn't always that present on the European scene, but is heard here in a strong Copenhagen concert with pianist Kenny Drew! 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".

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.

Surprisingly wonderful work from Kenny!

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". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Strata/180 Proof, 1974. New Copy ... 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". CD

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.

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".

There's a "newness" here that continues the inroads Kenny made on his first few sides for Blue Note – a piano style that's respectful of 50s mainstream, but finds its own space without falling into too-boppish modes or easy modern traps. The set features a great reading of Kenny's classic "Weird-O", as well as his great "Blues For Nica" – and other tunes include "Caravan", "Ruby My Dear", "When You Wish Upon A Star", "Taking A Chance On Love", and "Come Rain Or Come Shine".

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!"

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

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

2CD set that brings together all of the material that Zoot Sims and Kenny Drew recorded in Denmark in August of 1978 – previously issued on 2 different albums, and re-arranged here in order of recording! The first part of the material is from Zoot Sims in Copenhagen – a batch of tracks with the same sort of long, free space for solos as other dates done on that scene by American tenor stars! No surprise, Kenny Drew's backing Zoot up with some tremendous rhythm accompaniment – working here with a trio that includes Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – just about the best backing a player like Sims could have hoped for on the date! All the tracks here move well past the 5 minute mark – with most approaching 10 – and Zoot's ability to solo strongly in an extended fashion is very firmly in place. Titles include "Groovin High", "Too Close For Comfort", "Blue Hodge", "Morning Fun", "All The Things You Are", "It's All Right With Me", and "In The Middle Of A Kiss". Flower Waltz is a gem of a record from Zoot Sims and Kenny Drew – one that's recorded in the late 70s, but can easily stand with the classics in both players' catalogs! Zoot's especially great here – blowing with a laidback and easygoing quality that reminds us a fair bit of Stan Getz at times – especially in the way that Sims lets his tone get a bit raspy and almost earthy, quite different than his cleaner sound of earlier years. Rhythm is lightly dancing and sometimes in a bossa-inspired mode – with Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Alex Riel on drums – a familiar and very comfortable rhythm section who come together strongly. Titles include "Flower Waltz", "Groovin High", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "Fred", "I Wonder Where Our Love Has Gone", and "Caravan". 2CD set features 17 tracks in all – over 2 hours of music! CD

New Kenny Burrell with the Jack McDuff QuartetCrash! ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

New Kenny DorhamAfro-Cuban ... LP
Blue Note, 1955. New Copy (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

New MocamboNext Message (Kenny Dope mix, Kenny Dope dub) (green vinyl) ... 7-inch
Kay Dee, 2009. New Copy ... 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 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 BurrellOde To 52nd Street ... CD
Cadet, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(Out of print. Barcode has a cutout hole.)
