Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Good+ ... $79.99
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.)

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".

Charlie ParkerOne Night In Birdland ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1950. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99
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".

Lawrence OkrentChicago From The Sky – A Region Transformed (hardcover) ... Book
Chicago's Books, 2012. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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 Ran BlakeRan Blake Plays Solo Piano ... CD
ESP, 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".
