Kenny BurrellSpecial Requests – Live At Catalina's ... CD
High Note, 2013. New Copy .... $14.99 16.99
A sweet little live set from the legendary Kenny Burrell – one that not only captures his still-great sounds on guitar, but which also features some Kenny's own words introducing the tunes! The format here is very up-close and personal – specially-selected songs that Burrell plays beautifully – almost always with that single-line style that bristles with great tones and color – backed by a mellow quintet that includes Justo Almario on tenor and flute, Tom Ranier on piano, Tony Dumas on bass, and Clayton Cameron on drums. Kenny introduces many of the cuts on the set – and titles include versions of "Killer Joe", "Little Sunflower", "Make Someone Happy", "Sunset & The Mockingbird", "The Summer Knows", "Lament", and "Chitlins Con Carne".

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

Kenny Burrell & Grover Washington Jr.Togethering (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1985. New Copy .... $22.99
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

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

A stunning collection of rare cuts from the great Kenny Dope – lots of which are from his early years of beatmaking, when he had a definite influence from hip hop and club mixed into his groove! The package presents rare mixes pressed as 7" singles – many here for the first time ever – and the set includes work by Kenny solo, Masters At Work, and Blinko & Mace. Titles include "The Messiah (five four edit)", "Gunshot", "A Madd Cry (dungeon edit mix)", "Supa (KD's b-boy edit)", "Get On Down (orig demo mix)", "Insane (7 inch version)", "Pick It Up (orig 1/4 mix)", and "Blood Vibes (demo mix)". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kenny DorhamAfro-Cuban ... LP
Blue Note, 1955. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A completely unique little session – and a record that's every bit as musically striking as you might guess from its title and cover! The date's a rare Latin-tinged one for trumpeter Kenny Dorham – a record that takes his usually smooth sound and sets it up against octet backings with horns from JJ Johnson on trombone, Cecil Payned on baritone sax, and Hank Mobley on tenor – plus piano from Horace Silver, bass from Oscar Pettiford, and drums from Art Blakey – plus added congas from Patato Valdes! The expanded group plays with a great sense of power – really pushing Kenny's sound tremendously – and although the album also features a few tracks by a smaller group with less percussion, these also have a bit of a Latin/exotic tinge too. Titles include "Basheer's Dream", "Lotus Flower", "KD's Motion", "Venita's Dance", "Minor's Holiday", "La Villa", and "Afrodisia". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny DorhamJazz Contemporary (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Time (Japan), 1960. Used Gatefold .... $15.99
Great work from one of the hippest jazz contemporaries of the late 60s – trumpeter Kenny Dorham, a player who was really coming into his own by the time of this album! The record has Kenny with a nice sort of edge – not as boldly experimental as his 60s work for Blue Note, but definitely pushing things forward from the 50s – shaking off the sweet for a bit more bite, and working with a great lineup that includes Steve Kuhn on piano, Charles Davis on baritone sax, and either Jimmy Garrison or Butch Warren on bass. Kuhn and Davis really bring some interesting elements to the record – and titles include "Tonica", "Monk's Mood", "In Your Own Sweet Way", and "Horn Salute". Plus, the CD features some extra bonus tracks! CD

Kenny DorhamUna Mas (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue).... $49.99
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

Kenny Dorham/Jackie McLeanMatador ... CD

A brilliant album from Kenny Dorham – one of his more far-reaching efforts, with the expansive compositional style that he started bringing to some of his Blue Note work of the early 60s! 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".

Kenny DrewKenny Drew By Request ... CD
Baystate (Japan), 1985. New Copy .... $22.99
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 GarrettPushing The World Away ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2013. New Copy .... $16.99 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

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

Laidback vocal jazz from Kim Parker – working here with some really great backings from the Kenny Drew Trio! The tunes are a bit longer than the usual vocal date of this nature – leaving plenty of room for Drew to bring his own piano into play too – and rhythm is from the great team of Mads Vinding on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums, who've backed Kenny on plenty of other great records over the years! Parker's got a warm way of hitting the tunes – never too traditionally torchy, even though most numbers are standards – and titles include "Havin Myself A Time", "Paris Is A Lonely Town", "A Sleepin Bee", "Everything I Love", "Azure", "Rain Go Away", and "The Underdog".

We were never big fans of French rap, because to us, you've got to be able to understand what the rapper's saying, no matter how dope the flow may sound. But it got over big for a while and Urban Species jumped on that. The saving grace here are mixes by Keny Dope and Lil Louie Vega, Kenny's with the fat hip hop style we don't hear him dropping nearly enough anymore and Lil Louie's with a nice uptempo jazzy vibe. Guru's mix and the Lowdown mix both have a mellow, late night feel which we'd dig a lot more if we could have them in instrumentals. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Wright Brothers, 2013. New Copy .... $9.99
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).... $24.99
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".

TCB (Switzerland), 1978/1979. New Copy .... $13.99
Two 70s jazz giants, three different recordings, all of them wonderful! The set's a perfect showcase for both the trumpet of Kenny Wheeler and tenor of Alan Skidmore – as the recordings, done with the Jazz Live Trio of pianist Klaus Koenig, offer plenty of space for each soloist to stretch out and really do their thing – most importantly in the sort of straighter jazz setting that wasn't always recorded at this point in each player's career. Wheeler begins the album on long takes of "Come Sunday" and "A Simple Toon" – then Skidmore really smokes on "Would Jubilee Vit" and "K & A Blues" – and the last tracks feature work by both soloists together, on "Ruby Doo" and "Red Daffodil".

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

A really wonderful little record – one headed up by John Zorn, but actually featuring instrumentation from the trio of Bill Frisell on guitar, Kenny Wollesen on vibes, and Carol Emanuel on harp! The mix of instruments is wonderful – and rings out here with gentle progressions that almost remind us of some Terry Riley projects in the 70s, but a bit more intimate and less minimal too – lots of gentle colors from the vibes and guitar ringing next to some more subtle progressions from the harp – all at a level that's way beyond jazz or familiar compositional music!

Kenny Burrell with the Jack McDuff QuartetCrash! ... CD
1963. New Copy .... Around May 4, 2014
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 BarronWhat If ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1986. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although Kenny Barron's always a heck of a great musician on his own or in a piano trio, we're especially partial to his work in groups with horn players – and this album is a great example of that preference! Kenny first came to fame working with Dizzy Gillespie in the 60s, and since that point, he's always had a tremendous ear for the right tones and shadings from horns needed to augment his own soulful vision on the keys – a way of setting up the other players in the group to build on the well-crafted Barron lines, and take them even further into the stratosphere. This set follows that format, and draws great energy from Wallace Roney on trumpet and John Stubblefield on tenor – both at their younger best, and working alongside Kenny's piano with Cecil McBee on bass and Victor Lewis on drums. The lineup sparkles most on the 4 longer Barron numbers on the album – "Phantoms", "What If", "Voyage", and "Lullabye" – all of which take us back to the brilliance of Kenny's best Muse albums of the 70s. Other tracks feature smaller, more piano-centrist groupings – on tracks that include "Dexterity", "Close To You Alone", and "Trinkle Trinkle". CD

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".

Blue Note, 1963. Used .... Temporarily 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".

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

Riverside/OJC, 1956. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Light and tippling magic from pianist Kenny Drew – working here in trio formation with Philly Joe Jones on drums and Paul Chambers on bass, and getting a nice degree of freedom in this early Riverside session! 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".

Phase 4/Vocalion (UK), 1966. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two big band swingers from the 60s UK scene – back to back on a single CD! First up is Big Band Spectacular from pianist/arranger Sam Fonteyn – a set that's got a full brace of horns on most tracks, blasting hard with the swinging rhythms of the album! Fonteyn's on piano, but buried a bit in the mix, thanks to the horns – and there is some nice bongos, vibes, and guitar that comes into play at times – which helps keep things interesting. Titles include "My Hero", "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", "You Do Something To Me", "So In Love", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", and "It's All Right With Me". Drum Spectacular is an album that definitely earns its name – thanks to heavy work on the kit from Kenny Clare and Ronnie Stephenson – not to mention a great lineup of horn players too! The ensemble is slightly large, but still has a lean feel – a bit like the Clarke Boland Big Band at times, a group that occasionally featured Clare. Players include Tony Coe and Tubby Hayes on tenor, Kenny Baker and Kenny Wheeler on trumpets, Don Lusher and Keith Christie on trombones, and Alan Branscombe on piano – and arrangements are by the great Stan Tracey, Kenny Napper, Ian Hamer, and Tubby Hayes. Titles include "The Hawk Talks", "Drumboogie", "Caravan", "Drum Spectacular", "Portrait Of Elvin", "Afro Charlie", and "Talkin About Drums". CD

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".

BBE (UK), 1998. Used 3CDs .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible! This set is like finding a lost treasure chest filled with prime hip hop tracks from the late 80s and early 90s! Kenny Dope pulled together a huge batch of rare tracks tracks that you can never find on wax, and the folks at BBE packaged the huge 4LP set in a super heavy-duty box that looks very sharp. Despite the "mixed by" in the title, the tracks are all separate, and not mixed together. The set includes such classics as "She Fe MCs" by De La Soul & Tribe Called Quest, (from the Clear Lake Auditorium EP that was only available on promo until now), "Resurrection" by Common Sense (previously available on 12-inch only), "DWYCK" by Gang Starr and Nice & Smooth (up there as one of the best tracks by either group, and that's sayin' somethin'), "Fortified Live" by Mos Def, "Flava Of The Month" by Black Sheep, "Straight Out Of The Jungle" by Jungle Brothers, "The Rhythmologist" by Jamose, "Forsaken" by Breez Evahflowin', "Shining Star" by Sunz Of Man, "Everybody" by Basement Khemists, "You Gots To Chill" by EPMD, "Off The Books" by The Beatnuts & The Punisher, "Hard Rhymes" by The Wascals, "Hardcore Hip Hop" by Rawcotiks, "Uptown Anthem" by Naughty By Nature, and lots lots more! This 4 LP set features all the tracks in straight original mixes – and the 3CD set has the original tracks, plus a full CD of the tracks mixed live by Kenny. Both sets are amazing, and this motherlode of great stuff is Kenny's gift to the hip hop world! Incredible! (We thought we had to say it a second time.) CD

New Kenny BarronKenny Barron & The Brazilian Knights ... CD
Sunnyside, 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Kenny Barron's a man with many modes to love – but he sounds especially great here in a Brazilian jazz setting – thanks to help from his Brazilian Knights combo! The album's got plenty of warm piano lines from Barron – stepping out with a fluid, gentle sort of feel – and a style that gives plenty of space to group members Mauricio Einhorn on harmonica, Idriss Boudrioua on alto sax, Lula Galvao on acoustic guitar, and Claudio Roditi on trumpet and flugelhorn! Yet despite the presence of these strong instrumentalists, Kenny's still very much in the lead – giving the record a soulful depth that takes it way beyond usual efforts of this type – and definitely reminding us that in the best Brazilian sessions of this nature, the strongest grooves are always those rooted the most in American jazz. Titles include "Triste", "Rapaz De Bem", "Ilusao A Toa", "Sao Conrado", "Chorinho Carioca", and "Sonia Braga". CD

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

Blue Note (Japan), 1956. Used .... Out Of Stock
Arguably one of the greatest Kenny Burrell albums ever! Unlike some of Kenny's other sessions, which hide his guitar in arrangements that are a bit too complicated – this one's a nicely stripped-down album that sets his hollow electric in a group with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Kenny Clarke on drums, and Candido on conga. The tracks are nicely laidback, and Kenny hits some nice deep grooves on cuts like "Fugue N Blues", "Takeela", and "Delilah". Plus, the album also includes a totally cool percussion-only track – "Rhythmorama", which is a duet between Kenny Clarke and Candido! CD

A killer Kenny Dope take on this lost club classic! "I Want To Be Loved By You" is a perfect blend of soul, club, and funk – a track that shows that the underground club vibe of the late 70s wasn't always restricted to the east coast scene of P&P and other labels! The track's got a bubbling bassy groove, spacey keyboards in the mix, and some full-on righteous vocals that are totally great – and on this version, Kenny seems to kick up the drums a bit more, bring a bit more hardness to the bass, and really spin the whole thing out with even more cosmic energy than before! There's loads of great keyboards too – a sweet little solo in the middle – and lots of heavy bass on the bass mix too. 12-inch, Vinyl record

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.

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.

There's a gentleness to the set that's extremely refreshing – a floating quality to the vocals that's a bit like that of Tim Buckley, but never as overdone as in Buckley's work – and which Kenny takes to a whole new level here with a breezy scatting sort of approach. Gary Burton plays some great vibes on some of the album's best tracks, and titles include "Inside", "Lost Up In Lovin You", "Sunday Kind Of Love", "Up From The Skies", "The Feeling", "Marie", "You", and a great cover of "Creepin".

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

The session makes great use of 2 guitars at the same time – using that of Kenny Burrell for soulful rhythm, but also adding in Bucky Pizzarelli for some nice acoustic embellishments – in a mode that's similar to the soul jazz-com-bossa style used on records like Ike Quebec's Soul Samba or Charlie Rouse's Bossa Nova Bacchanal. The overall rhythms are a bit more complicated, and a bit more soul jazz based than those sets – with Hank Jones on piano, Oliver Jackson on percussion, and Al Hayes adding in some sweet extra bongo!

Titles include the classic "Ca'Purange" – plus "Anna", "Yellow Bird", "Cae Cae", and "Moito Mato Grosso". Also issued under the title Bad Bossa Nova. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a bit of light wear.)

BBE/Rapster (UK), 1970s/2006. Used .... $6.99
Rare Roy Ayers, remixed – and an amazing collection that links Roy's older work to a wide variety of current styles! The massively overstuffed package features tracks unearthed in the recent Virgin Ubiquity project – BBE's dip back into Roy's studio vaults from the 70s, a virtual treasure trove of unissued gems that match his classic work for Polydor! Those tracks are presented here in all new versions – remixed by Kenny Dope, Osunlade, Basement Jaxx, Platinum Pied Pipers, Joey Negro, and many others who've inherited soul and inspiration from Roy over the years.

Sidney BechetJazz In Paris – Sidney Bechet et Claude Luter ... CD
Universal (France), 1948/1949. Used .... $3.99
The Paris scene of the postwar years had a real love affair with Sidney Bechet – and it was in Paris that Bechet cut some of his finest recordings of later years! This set brings together material from Bechet's first 2 sessions in France – a 1948 date that features a small orchestra of French players, supporting Bechet's work on soprano sax; and a 1949 session done with a quartet that includes Kenny Clark on drums. Bechet's soprano is recorded beautifully throughout – with a free-swinging sound that's sentimental, but never too much so – and a sense of tone that clearly had a huge influence on many players to come. The CD is completed by an additional 6 tracks from the contemporaneous group of Claude Luter, a French clarinetist who worked in a traditional jazz style that was similar to that of Bechet. All material is originally from 78rpm singles on the Blue Star label, and remastered here for the set – with titles that include "High Society", "On The Sunny Side Of The Street", "It Had To Be You", "Ooh Boogie", "After You've Gone", "Margie", "Gatemout", and "South African Blues".

Andy & The Bey SistersRound Midnight ... LP
Prestige, 1965. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
One of the rare few records recorded by a young Andy Bey and his sisters! The group was an obscure jazz harmony trio formed by Andy in his earlier years – and it features him on piano, joining with the vocals of his two sisters Salome and Geradine Bey – in a soulful, moody style that's unlike anything else we can think of! Their three heavenly voices are backed by Kenny Burrell's guitar, Milt Hinton's bass, and Osie Johnson's drums, and there's lots of room around the arrangments for the Beys to stretch out and sing beautifully. Includes a haunting arrangment of "Round Midnight", plus "God Bless The Child", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Solitude", and the "Love Medley". LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersArt Blakey Et Les Jazz Messengers Au Club St. Germain Vol 3 ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1959. New Copy .... $13.99
Seminal work from Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers – recorded at a time when that group was really coming together! After a slightly wayward year of 1957, when the Messengers had a different lineup away from Blue Note, Art re-forged the group for the end of the 50s with a rock-solid array of players – including a young Lee Morgan on trumpet and Bobby Timmons on piano, plus Benny Golson on tenor, with a sense of arrangement that really helps give the group some focus – while still letting the solos open up in a live setting like this! All tracks are long, and played with lots of fire – and the kind of amazing open-ended solos that the group could cook up whenever they were working in a live environment. Titles on this third volume feature bonus work by Gana M'Bow on bongos and Kenny Clarke on drums on a long version of "Night In Tunisia" – plus the Benny Golson gems "Along Came Manon" and "Out of The Past" – both done very nicely here!

Francy BolandFrancy Boland Playing With The Trio ... CD
Rearward (Italy), 1967. New Copy .... $18.99
One of the few small group recordings ever cut by pianist Francy Boland – and a set that cooks every bit as much as his work with the larger Clarke Boland Big Band on MPS! The reason for the cooking is clear – Francy's got key rhythmic help from group members Jimmy Woode on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums – players who are way more than just partners with Boland on the session – more musical soulmates, especially from a rhythmic perspective – and able to work at that unique Clarke Boland level that's both lyrical and swinging, soulful and modern! The tunes are played in this way that really shows off Boland's skills on the keys – but never in a style that's flashy, just fresh and filled with surprising tones and twists – backed superbly by Woode and Clarke. Titles include "The Girl & The Turk", "Gamal Sady'N'Em", "Night Lady", "Myriam Doll", "I'm All Smiles", "Lonely Girl", and "Nights In Warsaw". CD

Helmut Brandt ComboBerlin Calling ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy .... $18.99
Bold bass saxophone sounds from the overlooked Helmut Brand – a German player of the postwar years, and one with a sense of tone and texture to rival that of Gerry Mulligan at his west coast best! The work here is all previously unreleased, but shows Brand as one of the key reed innovators of the German scene at the time – right up there with the experiments of Hans Koller, especially in the way that Helmut can work fresh tones in with a strong sense of soul and swing! Many of these cuts feature trumpeter Conny Jackel joining in the frontline – folding his horn in with Brand's to create a cool wash of color – and a few other numbers feature Helmut alone as the lead soloist in a quartet, one with Roland Kovac on piano and Kenny Clarke on drums. Titles include "Bami", "Nordlicht", "Yesterdays", "Salute To Lars Gullin", "Love For Sale", "Berlin Calling", and "Sum". CD

Anthony BraxtonCreative Orchestra Music (Koln) 1978 ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 1978. New Copy 2CDs .... $16.99 26.99
One of Anthony Braxton's first great recordings with a larger group – a really impressive array of sounds and tones that takes his compositional experiments to the next level! Tunes here are all those complicated Braxton formulas from the 70s – carried out by a host of equally-imaginative players who include Dwight Andrews, Vinny Golia, JD Parran, Marty Erlich, and Ned Rothenberg on saxes and reeds; Kenny Wheeler, Leo Smith, and Michael Mossman on trumpets; Ray Anderson, George Lewis, and James King Roosa on trombones; Marilyn Crispell on piano, Bobby Naughton on vibes, James Emery on guitar, Bob Ostertag on synthesizer, Thurman Barker on percussion and marimba, and Braxton himself at the head of the ensemble! The electronics come across with some great tones that really link the freer reed moments – and the sound of the whole album is plenty powerful throughout. CD

Ray BryantRay Bryant Trio (Epic) ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1956. New Copy .... $13.99
The first full album from the great Ray Bryant – recorded shortly after his famous Epic Records session with Betty Carter! The album's got Ray grooving in a hard early soul jazz mode – working in a trio with either Kenny Clarke or Osie Johnson on drums, and Wyatt Reuther on bass – at a level that still shows some influence from other pianists, but already with that unique hard-left style that would make Bryant a big favorite in short years to come. Candido joins in on congas on 2 of the album's best tracks – a hard grooving take on "Night In Tunisia", plus Ray's classic "Cubano Chant", a dancing Latin groover that went onto become an oft-recorded Latin Jazz standard – and other titles include "Pawn Ticket", "Philadelphia Bound", and "Off Shore".

New Hiram BullockFrom All Sides ... LP
Atlantic, 1986. Near Mint- .... $4.99
An 80s classic from guitarist Hiram Bullock – a fusion set with a lot more smooth edges than the gritty surface of Hiram's well-played guitar on the cover! The set's quite polished, but still pretty great – never too overdone, and still based mostly around instrumentation by a core combo on most tunes. Hiram plays guitars, both electric and acoustic, as well as keyboards – and also sings a bit on about half the tracks in the set. Other players include Will Lee on bass, Kenny Kirkland and Cliff Carter on keyboards, and Charley Drayton on drums – and titles include "Funk Broadway", "Say Goodnight Gracie", "Until I Do", "Window Shoppin", "Really Wish I Could Love You", and "Mad Dog Daze". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp, cutout notch, and WGN marker on back.)
