Paul QuinichetteKid From Denver ... LP
Dawn, 1956. Very Good ... $14.99
Brilliant work from the "Vice Pres" – tenorist Paul Quinichette, stepping out here in one the best of of his all-too-few sessions as a leader! Paul's tone is amazing throughout – very much on a par with that of Ben Webster or Coleman Hawkins, and proof that his admission to the jazz "executive branch" in the 50s was well deserved. The tunes are shortish, but very swinging – and Quinichette's tenor work dominates in a group that also includes Nat Pierce, Henry Coker, Thad Jones, Freddie Green, and Joe Newman. There's a Basie-esque swing overall – but the final result is miles from Basie, and has a very different vibe overall. Titles include "Big Deal", "Happy Feeling", "Pardon The Blues Please", "Start Here", and "The Kid From Denver". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove – nice and clean. Cover has a bit of tape on two seams, but is nice overall.)

Paul QuinichetteMoods ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Perhaps the best-known (and arguably the best) record by Paul Quinchette, and an album that brings his rich tenor solo style into contact with a very tight, very swinging batch of arrangments by a young Quincy Jones. Quincy's got an all-star batch of players backing up Q, including Sam Most, Charles Thompson, Paul Chambers, and Barry Galbraith – plus players like Willie Rodriguez and Manny Oquendo, who bring some added Latin percussion to the session. The tracks are short, but with a very open approach to soloing, and although Quinchette's in the lead, some of the other players get their licks in quite a bit. Titles include "Pablo's Roonie", "Shorty George", "Grasshopper", and "Tropical Intrigue". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing!)

Paul Quinichette, Buck Clayton, Nat Pierce, et alBasie Reunion ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
The title tells the tale on this one – as the session's a studio meeting of players all associated with Count Basie over the years – captured here in a style that's much more laidback and relaxed than the usual Basie set! The album's got the feel of some of Prestige's best work in the Swingville series, but also has an approach that's almost in the blowing session mode – with long tracks on the album that really let each player step out in their own voice. The lineup includes Paul Quinichette on tenor, Buck Clayton and Shad Collins on trumpet, Jack Washington on baritone sax, Nat Pierce on piano, Freddie Greene on guitar, and Jo Jones on drums – and titles include "Blues I Love To Hear", "Love Jumped Out", "John's Idea", and "Baby Don't Tell On Me".

New Charlie Rouse & Paul QuinichetteChase Is On ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer – and one of the greatest records ever cut on Bethlehem! Charlie Rouse and Paul Quinichette go head to head in a hard-blown session that's very different than most of the work on Bethlehem – grooving in a free-wheeling "chase" mode, as you might guess from the title – with lots of heavy tenor in the lead, cooking at a level that's more like a Prestige or Savoy session from the 50s! The group's as tight as can be – with some killer drum work from Ed Thigpen, and piano by either Wynton Kelly or Hank Jones. Titles include "The Chase Is On", "You're Cheating Yourself", "Knittin", "Tender Trap", and "When The Blues Come On". CD

New Stan Getz/Wardell Gray/Zoot Sims/Paul QuinichetteTenors Anyone? (Dawn) ... LP
Dawn, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mixed-player session, but a nice batch of classic 50s tenor work from the players named in the title! Each artist gets to lead 2 tracks apiece, except for Getz, who gets 4 tracks to his own in a nice group that includes Al Haig and Jimmy Raney. Styles are a mix of Lester Young mellow and tighter, more bop-oriented lines – and titles include "Poop Deck", "Ante Room", "In A Pinch", "Skull Buster", and "Blues For The Month Of May". Nice goofy cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Orignal black label pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has numerous marks and plays with some crackling and clicks. Cover has wear, some stains, and a sticker, with splitting and masking tape on the seams.)

Sarah VaughanSarah Vaughan (paper sleeve version) ... CD
EmArcy (Japan), 1955. Used ... $14.99
A jazz vocal masterpiece from Sarah Vaughn – one of her greatest albums ever, and a record that raised the bar for countless vocal sessions in years to come! Sarah's working here in an intimate group arranged by Ernie Wilkins, and featuring some sublime solo work from Clifford Brown, Paul Quinichette, and Herbie Mann – alongside rhythm from the trio of Jimmy Jones, Joe Benjamin, and Max Roach. Sarah's vocals are incredible – curving, turning, and lilting with a tremendous amount of jazz-based inflection – and titles include "Lullaby Of Birdland", "April In Paris", "September Song", "He's My Guy", and "I'm Glad There Is You".

Dinah WashingtonAfter Hours With Miss D ... LP
EmArcy, Early 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Dinah's in a perfect setting here – one that gets more jazz out of her style than other records at the time! The "after hours" setting has Dinah singing with a relaxed jazz combo – one that features Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Paul Quinichette on tenor, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Junior Mance on piano – as well as some other nice touches, like congas from Candido, and a bit of organ work from Jackie Davis! The tunes still have the slightly bluesy feel of Dinah's other work, but are more jazz-based in their phrasing and presentation – and titles include "A Foggy Day", "Bye Bye Blues", "Am I Blue", "Blue Skies", and "Love For Sale". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Mercury pressing, with deep groove. Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track two. Cover has a partially split top seam and a couple of small stains.)

Dinah WashingtonFor Those In Love ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Good+ ... $24.99
Excellent small group jazz work from Dinah – of the sort that's often quite tough to find on vinyl, and which represents some of her best work of all time! The album's got a good group of Mercury jazz players – like Clark Terry, Paul Quinichette, Cecil Payne, Wynton Kelly, and Jimmy Cobb – all playing in a laidback intimate setting which works very nicely for Dinah's soulful vocals. Titles include "Blue Gardenia", "You Don't Know What Love Is", "I Could Write A Book", and "Easy Living". A bit Billie Holiday-ish, sure – but nice! LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label EmArcy pressing, with a drummer logo and a deep groove. Vinyl has some oxidation that causes surface noise. Cover has half-split top & bottom seams, and moderate aging on the back.)

Johnny Smith with Stan GetzMoonlight In Vermont (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1952/1953. New Copy ... Around September 17, 2014
A beautiful document of some of the most laidback jazz ever recorded – the sublime 50s recordings of the Johnny Smith group, done at a time when the lineup included Stan Getz! The tunes on the set feature Johnny's mellow electric guitar setting the pace, alongside wonderfully-blown early solos from Stan, plus some other tenor work from Zoot Sims and Paul Quinichette, who also sit in the tenor chair on a few of these recordings. The tunes are mostly standards, but done in a great style that's not exactly cool jazz, but which has a groundbreakingly easy groove that's simply sublime! CD features a number of bonus and unreleased cuts, with 19 tracks that include "What's New", "Yesterdays", "Vilia", "Ghost Of A Chance", "Jaguar", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Tabu", and "Where Or When".
