New Dorothy AshbyJazz Harpist ... LP
Regent, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby has always had one of the most unusual sounds around – and even though it might sound a bit crazy at first, her mix of harp playing with tight jazzy backing is always a winning combination. This early album has Ms Ashby playing with a groovy little combo that includes Frank Wess on flute, Ed Thigpen on drums, and Wendell Marshall on bass. Even at this early age, Dorothy shows her writing skills well with the originals "Aeolian Groove, "Lamentation", and "Spicy" – and she does a nice job with the other standards she chooses to cover. A nice record, with a soulful sound that you wouldn't expect! LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing with deep groove – nice and clean, with some light surface marks on the vinyl from the old inner sleeve. Cover is great!)

New John JenkinsJazz Eyes ... LP
Regent, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little session – an oft-overlooked gem from Savoy's legendary hardbop years of the 50s! Altoist John Jenkins leads the session – which also features Donald Byrd, Curtis Fuller, Tommy Flanagan, Doug Watkins, and Art Taylor – and with a lineup like that, you can hardly miss! The set grooves like one of the best edgey Prestige blowing sessions from the time – long tracks, lots of room for solos, and a surprising coherency that really drives the whole thing. The album's only got 4 long tracks – "Orpheus", "Honeylike", "Rockaway", and "Star Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original green label pressing, with deep groove and RVG stamp. Cover has a bit of light wear, with a small split on the top seam.)

New Annie Ross/Dorothy Dunn/Shelby DavisSingin N Swingin ... LP
Regent, 1951. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare side on Savoy – and a full-length album that compiles earlier bop and jazz vocal sides by the three singers listed above. The most notable aspect of the record is the work by Annie Ross – as it's some of her earliest on record, and done in a style that's slightly different than her sides on Prestige from the early 50s. Annie's backed by a group that includes Milt Jackson, Percy Heath, Kenny Clarke, and Blossom Dearie on piano – and titles include "Everytime", "I'm Beginning To Think You Care", and "The Way You Look Tonight". The other two singers – who we'd never heard of – aren't that bad, and they're also backed by slightly hip jazz groups, on titles like "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "You Turned The Tables On Me", and "How Long Has This Been Going On". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original green label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has light wear on the back, and an inch or two of seam splititng – but is great overall.)

New JJ JohnsonJazz South Pacific ... LP
Regent, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although this looks like it should be a hard bop version of tracks from the hit musical, it's actually just a swinging set of jazz featuring JJ Johnson on trombone, Howard McGhee on trumpet, and Rudy Williams on tenor. Short tracks with tight solos, and mostly swing standards as the song list, including "Perdido", "Man With A Horn","Mood Indigo", "St Louis Blues", "Stormy Weather", "One O'Clock Jump", "Stomping At The Savoy" and more. And the liner notes claim it was recorded in Guam, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original green label pressing, with deep groove. Vinyl has a couple of marks that click. Cover has a split bottom seam, a small split on the top seam, and some wear and pen on the back.)

RegentsBarbara Ann ... CD
Gee/Warner (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
A legendary set from The Regents – a blue-eyed vocal group who were every bit as important as The Four Seasons and Beach Boys, even though their legacy never lasted as long! The quintet are in top form here – really more soul than rock and pop, with an approach that's extremely faithful to the best New York doo wop acts of the time – and production that really lets the interplay stay upfront, with only a bit of rhythm to get things going on the more upbeat numbers. This approach is heard to best effect on the album's classic title cut – "Barbara Ann" – and also comes through on the ballads as well. Other titles include "Laura My Darling", "A Sunday Kind Of Love", "Just Cry", "Lonesome Boy", "A Fool In Love", "Your Love Captured Me", and "I'm So Lonely". CD
