Ran BlakeRan Blake Plays Solo Piano ... CD
ESP, 1965. New Copy ... $10.99 12.99
Really amazing early work from pianist Ran Blake – an artist who's continued to blow our minds in more recent years, but who sounds especially outstanding hear in an early session for the ESP label! The album's quite different from some of the freer, bolder music you'd normally associate with ESP – as Ran plays solo here, with a style that's very poetic – although still quite open-ended and free, with a fair bit of improvisation as well. The shift of tones alone is mindblowing – almost beyond anything you might expect to come from the piano, yet without any of the heavier-handed modes of a player like Cecil Taylor. Original material is mixed with very vivid re-workings of jazz standards – and titles include "Vanguard", "Sister Tee", "Eric", "Stratusphunk", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Lonely Woman". CD

Art BlakeyJazz Messengers Play Lerner & Loewe ... CD
Vik/RCA (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
The music of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe – composers usually associated with the Broadway stage, brought into a whole new light here by the late 50s Jazz Messengers! The album's one of Art Blakey's more unusual outings – part of that great 1957 run away from Blue Note – but it cooks strongly with a lineup that includes Jackie McLean on alto, Johnny Griffin on tenor, and Bill Hardman on trumpet – all players who bring an unusual degree of bite to these tunes, while still reflecting the lyrical beauty within! The group sparkles and shines with the sort of brilliance and energy that Blakey's leadership brings to the group, completely transforming tunes that include "I Could Have Danced All Night", "Almost Like Being In Love", "On The Street Where You Live", and "There But For You Go I".

New Horace SilverHorace Silver & The Jazz Messengers ... LP
Blue Note, 1955. Good+ ... $24.99
A record with Horace Silver on the cover, but a set that's really more of a Jazz Messengers date overall – as it features a smoking quintet that not only includes Art Blakey on drums and Doug Watkins on bass – but which also has some great frontline work from Hank Mobley on tenor and Kenny Dorham on trumpet! The group's got the rougher, less-iconic feel of the Messengers at their start – similar to their early live dates – but all the right energy is firmly in place, and maybe given even more direction under Silver's leadership and great ear for a tune! The writing is superb, especially on classics like "Doodlin", "The Preacher", "Hippy", and the amazing "To Whom It May Concern" – one of our all-time favorite tunes in the 50s Blue Note catalog – and the solos are all top-shelf too. A real Blue Note classic! LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd Street pressing with RVG etch. Cover has a split spine, mostly split top seam, half split bottom seam, and a stain on back.)
Also available Horace Silver & The Jazz Messengers (75th anniversary edition) ... LP 16.99

Jimmy SmithJimmy Smith At The Organ Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Good ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderful early stuff from Jimmy Smith! The album is one of two great sessions that capture Smith in all his youthful prime, playing with other Blue Note greats like Art Blakey, Kenny Burrell, and Lou Donaldson – and nicely constructed tracks that take standard tunes and open them up into a whomping good soul jazz groove, thanks to Jimmy's monster organ playing. The solos are pretty free and gosh darn creative – and titles on this volume include "Summertime", "All Day Long", and "Yardbird Suite". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd Street pressing with deep groove, RVG etching, and "ear". Cover is worn with a fully split top seam, aging and stains. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

New Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige, 1951. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key early appearance on record by Sonny Rollins – recorded here with Miles Davis and Jackie McLean in the landmark Dig session! The album's the stuff that 50s bop dreams are made of – a session that has up-and-coming modernists working in the new freedom of the long playing record, in a way that allows them to break past the shorter, more urgent sound of the 78rpm single! Rollins is young, but a surprisingly strong voice on the set – and Jackie McLean's alto is incredibly sharp at this point, with strong hints of the genius to come later in the decade. The rest of the lineup includes Walter Bishop on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and tracks include Miles' classic version of "It's Only A Paper Moon", plus "Denial", "Out Of The Blue", "Dig", and "Bluing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful NYC 50th street pressing – grey tint cover with red text – with RVG stamp and deep groove! Vinyl has one very short click, but the rest is super clean and totally great – and cover is very nice too.)

New Lawrence OkrentChicago From The Sky – A Region Transformed (hardcover) ... Book
Chicago's Books, 2012. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We love our life in the Windy City – and spend most of our free time traversing Chicago's wide streets and many neighborhoods – but we've never got to see the city like this, with a range of oversized views from the air – including a fair bit of historical images as well! The book attempts to show the changing landscape of Chicago – by offering up similar aerial shots of the city, shot at different points in its history – so that you can see the lakefront change, the buildings grow, and the vibrant population find a way to increasingly improve its home. We've seen so much change in Chicago, we sometimes forget how things were – even just a decade ago – and the book is a great reminder of the way things used to be, while also documenting the present with beautiful images too. 247 pages, hardcover, and full color.

New Charlie ParkerOne Night In Birdland ... LP
Columbia, 1950. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare live material from Charlie Parker – recorded in the very familiar territory of the Birdland nightclub, but not issued until an LP release from the 70s! The material originally was broadcast on radio, but through the series of the Rose transcription disc archive – which meant better recording and preservation than most other radio material of the bop years – helping to make this album a real treasure among Bird fans in the years after his death. The lineup is a very tight bop-based one – with Fats Navarro on trumpet, Bud Powell on piano, and Art Blakey on bass. Chubby Newsome adds vocals to "Embraceable You" – and the rest of the set includes "Wahoo", "Round Midnight", "This Time The Dream's On Me", "Dizzy Atmosphere", "A Night In Tunisia", "Move", "The Street Beat", "Out Of Nowhere", "Little Willie Leaps", "Ornithology", "I'll Remember April", and "Cool Blues/52nd St Theme".

New Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect offset to Cannonball's more soulful style. The rest of the group includes Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey – and like John Coltrane's Blue Train, the record's more of an "special session" than the usual Blue Note album, but the strength of the players make it one of the more memorable records of its day! Titles include "Somethin' Else", "One For Daddy-O", and a nice moody take on "Dancing In The Dark". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street pressing. Cover has light wear.)

New Jeanne Lee & Ran BlakeNewest Sound Around ... CD
RCA (France), 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
An eerie album of modern jazz vocals – featuring the haunting voice of Jeanne Lee with the dark piano of Ran Blake. Most tracks feature only the two of them in duet – but a few feature Lee solo, and a few others have George Duvivier backing the pair up on bass. We like this stuff a lot better than much of Lee's later work – as it's still very much in a traditional jazz vocal realm, just pushed off-kilter a few notches or two, and painted with more abstract colors than usual. Lee's voice is nicely restrained, and has a dark Abbey Lincoln quality to it at the best moments. Titles include "Church On Russel Street", "Laura", "Love Isn't Everything", "Lover Man", "Season In The Sun", and "When Sunny Gets Blue". Plus, this CD reissue features 4 bonus cuts – including "Straight Ahead", "Vanguard", and "Left Alone". CD
