Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Good+ ... $44.99
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.)

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

Jeanne Lee & Ran BlakeNewest Sound Around ... CD
RCA (France), 1961. Used ... $26.99
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

Lawrence OkrentChicago From The Sky – A Region Transformed (hardcover) ... Book
Chicago's Books, 2012. New Copy ... $15.99 49.50
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 Art BlakeyArt Blakey & The Jazz Messengers (aka Moanin) ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Art Blakey's first true moments of genius! This transitional version of the Jazz Messengers included two parts – Lee Morgan and Bobby Timmons – of the holy Morgan/Shorter/Timmons trilogy, and it's also got the added bonus of Benny Golson on tenor, who was at the height of his power at this point. The record really shines in ways that few Blakey albums shone since his days with Horace Silver – in that it's a forum for fresh new writing, most importantly Golson's landmark compositions "Blues March" and "Along Came Betty", and Timmons' instant classic "Moanin". The whole album's wonderful, though, and Golson's edgey modernism adds a strong dimension to the group's usual soulful romping groove! LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd Street mono pressing, with a deep groove, RVG stamp, and ear! Cover has moderate wear, some aging, a partially split bottom seam, and some pen on the back. Label has some pen. Vinyl has numerous marks that cause noise and clicks.)

New Art BlakeyNight In Tunisia (Blue Note) ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of a number of Art Blakey albums titled after "Night In Tunisia" – and most likely the best! The tune is a perfect fit for the Blakey Jazz Messengers format – long, rhythmic, really stretching out, yet allowing plenty of space for the horn players to solo. Players include Bobby Timmons on piano, Lee Morgan on trumpet, and Wayne Shorter on tenor – a killer lineup that's in really classic form here – driven on nicely by Blakey's drums and bass work by Jymie Merritt. Titles include "Night In Tunisia", with Blakey thundering through impeccably – plus the tracks "Yama", "Kozo's Waltz", and a version of Timmons' great "So Tired". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd Street pressing, with deep groove, RVG stamp, and "ear". Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track one. Cover has discoloration due to age, light wear, and some small stains, with some wear and splitting on part of the top seam.)

New Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins With The Modern Jazz Quartet ... LP
Prestige, 1951/1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early Sonny Rollins work for Prestige – recorded in the years 1951 and 1953, in a variety of settings! 4 tracks on the album features Rollins blowing with the MJQ, one more has him working with a Miles Davis group, and the last 8 feature a quartet with Kenny Drew, Percy Heath, and Art Blakey. The tunes are shorter than you might be used to hearing Rollins, but there's still plenty of power and imagination in the grooves – very economical solos, crafted with a great deal of imagination. Titles include "Scoops", "Shadrack", "Mambo Bounce", "The Stopper", "I Know", and "No Moe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange-tinted cover – 50th street NYC pressing! Vinyl has some light surface marks, but plays well - and is a nice copy overall. Cover is nice too – with just a bit of light wear, and no splitting at all.)

New Art BlakeyJazz Messengers Play Lerner & Loewe ... CD
Vik/RCA (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 Hank MobleyRoll Call ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
A killer set of hardbop from the legendary Hank Mobley – recorded during the initial Mobley run at Blue Note, and a keen document of his amazing power on the tenor sax! The album's got a tightness that's almost impossible to believe – a summation of all the best bop trends of the 50s, rolled into a freewheeling and soulful expression, guided by Mobley's always-sharp ear for a groove. The group's great too – and Art Blakey is on drums, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and a young young Freddie Hubbard plays trumpet. All tracks are nice and long, with a firey hardbop sound, deeply held in place by Mobley's soulful tone on the tenor! Titles include "My Groove Your Move", "Baptist Beat", and "The Breakdown". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street pressing, with RVG stamp and ear – and deep groove on one side. Cover is great – and this is a very nice copy!)

New Charlie ParkerOne Night In Birdland ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1950. New Copy 2 CDs ... 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".
