New Charlie ByrdLatin Impressions ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $1.99
The Latin Impressions here are more Brazilian than Cuban – and maybe a bit Spanish, too – given the strong use of acoustic guitar from Charlie Byrd! The set's got a laidback, open feel – and Byrd's guitar work is mighty deft, yet without all the frills and flowers of some of the more dramatic, emotive players of the time – a great illustration of the huge shift that the early bossa guitar recordings had at a global level. Byrd was one of the first big American proponents of bossa, and you can definitely hear that influence at work here – amidst additional guitar from Gene Byrd, bass from Keter Betts, and drums from Bill Reichenbach. A few tunes feature Charlie on solo guitar with no backing – and titles include "O Pato", "Homage A Villa Lobos", "Bogota", "Vals", "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Amor Flamengo", and "Azul Tiple".

New Elmo HopeAll Star Sessions (Informal Jazz/Homecoming) ... LP
Prestige/Riverside, 1956/1961. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
2 of the few sessions that pianist Elmo Hope cut as a leader in groups with horn players – back to back in a 2LP set, with great notes! The first disc on the set features material from the album Informal Jazz – a 1956 blowing session with Hope on the keys, and a great group that includes Donald Byrd, John Coltrane, and Hank Mobley – plus Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The 4 tracks from that session are all nice and long, with plenty of solo space – and titles include "Weeja", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "On It", and "Avalon". Next up is material from the album Homecoming – a great little album that Hope made upon his return to the east coast in the early 60s, not too long before he passed away. Half the tunes are cut with a sextet that features Blue Mitchell, Frank Foster, and Jimmy Heath – and the other are cut with a trio that features Hope, Percy Heath, and Philly Joe Jones, who provide the rhythm for the sextet tunes. The mix of settings is about half and half – and titles include "Moe Jr", "La Berthe", "Eyes So Beautiful", and "One Mo Blues". It's great to hear Hope back with horns, after cutting so many trio sides during this point in his life – and his unique style on the keys is still matched nicely with the larger group of players.

New Wynton KellyKelly Blue ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great little session from Wynton Kelly – one that has him breaking out of the lyrical roots of his trio work, and hitting some harder notes as a leader of a larger hardbop group! The album features Kelly working in both trio and sextet format – the latter with players who include Nat Adderley, Bobby Jaspar, and Benny Golson; and the former with Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb (who also play with the sextet). The sextet tracks are the ones that we really love here – as they tend to feature 2 long original numbers by Kelly – much more open than usual, and in a mode that was rarely captured as well on Wynton's albums as a leader. The trio sides are still nice too, though – although a bit more like some of his other sides – and the album features 6 tracks in all, titles that include "Kelly Blue", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "Green Dollphin Street", "Keep It Moving", and "Old Clothes".

Johnny LytleVillage Caller ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good ... $6.99
A funky vibes classic – and a landmark set from Detroit vibist Johnny Lytle! The set's one of the purest examples of Johnny's great early groove – a tightly stepping version of soul jazz that played big in the clubs at the time, and which has forever made Lytle one of the favorites of the mod jazz dance circuit! Lytle mixes his own heavy work on vibes with some great work from his regular trio members Milt Harris on organ and William "Peppy" Hinnant on drums – augmented here by some additional bass from Bob Cranshaw and percussion from Willie Rodriguez. The sound is strong and tight – arguably even more classic than that of Lytle's Tuba recordings – and the title cut "Village Caller" is a wonderfully angular groover that still gets heavy play in Chicago to this day! Other tracks include the modal dancer "Kevin Devin", plus the tracks "Pedro Strodder", "Green Dolphin Street", "Solitude", and "Unhappy Happy Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannSultry Serenade ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Very Good- ... $24.99
An early record by Herbie Mann, and one that offers a nice treat – bass clarinet! Although Herbie made his fame in the 60s with his Latiny flute playing, he was also a darn good bass clarinetist, and he plays both instruments on this rare early session from 1957. The bass clarinet doesn't dominate the whole recording, but when Herbie uses it, he gets an incedible tone – especially next to the baritone of Jack Nimitz, who also plays on the album. Titles include "Professor", "One Morning In May", "Sultry Serenade", and "When The Sun Comes Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Mark MurphyThat's How I Love The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Given what a freewheeling, open-minded, and lyrical jazz singer Mark Murphy is, it's hard to imagine him really loving "the blues" – and fortunately, most of that love is extended in the title, because the album itself is less of the blues effort that you might think. True, the tracks are numbers that often have "blues" in the title – but the arrangements are by Al Cohn, and have a swinging approach that's in keeping with Murphy's other early 50s work. Titles include "Blues You're The Mother Of Sin", "Blues In My Heart", "Fiesta In Blue", "That's How I Love The Blues", "Blues In The Night", and a reading of "Senor Blues" that's worth the price of the record alone!

Both men are from North Carolina and the recording took place there in 1957. It's a great collection of a total of 18 traditional songs and it includes such tracks as "Old Rattler", "Cackling Hen", "Old Joe Clark", "Wildwood Flower", "Listen To The Mocking Bird", "Foggy Mountain Top", and "Fly Around My Pretty Little Miss".

Sonny RollinsFreedom Suite ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A crucially important record in Sonny Rollins' career – one that had him breaking out of the straight bop sound, and emerging as a major power on the tenor sax – one with limitless creative power! The set features Rollins working with only drum and bass accompaniment – played by Max Roach and Oscar Pettiford, respectively – and the lack of piano or other horns gives Rollins a free space in which to work his magic, doing so incredibly on the album's "Freedom Suite", an extended piece that runs for nearly 20 minutes, and which pushes all conceptions of the tenor's ability to solo freely on record. The other side of the record features shorter tracks – "Shadow Waltz", "Someday I'll Find You", and "Will You Still Be Mine?" – blown with no less creativity. LP, Vinyl record album

A strong early one from Johnny Hammond – one that features him working in a groovy group that includes Thad Jones on trumpet, Seldon Powell on tenor and flute, and Eddie McFadden on guitar. The addition of horns gives the set a bit more punch than some of Johnny's other sides from the time – and Ray Barretto's conga dances along nicely on most tracks. Titles include "Cleopatra", "Cyra", "Open House", and "Blues For DeDe". LP, Vinyl record album

Late 60s issue of a fantastic Coleman Hawkins session from the late 50s – recorded with a septet that included Idrees Sulieman, Hank Jones, JJ Johnson, and Oscar Pettiford – and with an open-ended tone that veers towards the Prestige blowing session mode, but which is also tighter, and touched with traces of the modernism that Hawk had on his late solos at the time. Titles include the long tracks "Juicy Fruit" and "Sanctity" – plus "Chant", "Think Deep", and "Blue Lights". LP, Vinyl record album

New Philly Joe JonesDrums Around The World ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderfully experimental album from drummer Philly Joe Jones – and one that has just the right sort of "ethnic" feel to earn its "Around The World" title! Mostly, the ethnicity comes through in exotic reed work by Sahib Shihab, Herbie Mann, and Cannonball Adderley – who all play wonderfully on the album – alongside straighter sidemen who include Lee Morgan and Blue Mitchell on trumpets, Benny Golson on tenor, and Curtis Fuller on trombone. There's a bit of the Yusef Lateef late 50s sound on here – mixed with Philly's killer crack sock drum approach – a blend that comes off wonderfully throughout, and really makes the album a standout in Philly Joe's catalog from the time. Titles include "Land Of The Blue Veils", "Blue Gwynn", "El Tambores", and "The Tribal Message", which is a nice drum solo! LP, Vinyl record album

New Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley & The Poll Winners ... LP

Cannon's left his usual soul jazz combo for this album – and he's recording on the west coast with an all-star group that includes Wes Montgomery on guitar, Victor Feldman on vibes and piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. The sound's a bit different than usual – with a strong focus on the solos of the big stars, and less on the tight grooving of the group – but that doesn't stop it from being a great set, and Cannon blows in a way that reminds us of his classic Mercury sides. Titles include "The Chant", "Azule Serape", "Never Will I Marry", and "Au Prive". LP, Vinyl record album

New James ClayDouble Dose Of Soul ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most revelatory albums ever cut by reedman James Clay – a player who's often lumped into the "hard blowing" camp because of his Texas roots, but one who emerges here with a great deal of sensitivity and imagination! The record features Clay playing both tenor and flute – clearly a "double dose of soul" – and on the latter instrument, he's got a really wonderful style that's a bit like Yusef Lateef, still hardbop and swinging, but touched with a sense of exoticism that really makes for a unique sound to the record. And even on tenor, Clay's got a looser, more introspective sound here – one that catches the mood set by the rest of the group – with Victor Feldman on vibes, Gene Harris on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – plus a bit of extra cornet from Nat Adderley on a few tracks. The album has a good modal feel in parts, and a stronger soul jazz groove in others – and it's one of the great sets put together as part of the "Cannonball Presents" series for Riverside in the early 60s. Tracks include "Lost Tears", "Pockets", "New Delhi", and "Linda Serene". LP, Vinyl record album

New Johnny DoddsNew Orleans Clarinet ... LP
Riverside, 1920s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal recordings of the trad clarinetist, recorded in Chicago in a variety of settings, mostly smaller bluesy groups of the sort that were inhabiting the south and west sides of town. Like Louis Armstrong, he supplanted his New Orleans style to Chicago, meshing it with the urban black musics that would become the roots of jazz. A dozen numbers in all, recorded with Jasper Taylor's State Street Boys, Junie Cobb's Hometown Band, Viola Bartlette, Blind Blake, the State Street Rqamblers and Lovie Austin's Blues Serenaders, including "It Must Be The Blues", "State Street Blues", "East Coast Trot", "Chicago Buzz", "Walk Easy 'Cause My Papa's Here", 'Southbound Rag", "Bohunkus Blues", "Buddy Burton's Jazz", "Cootie Stomp", "Weary Way Blues", "Chicago Mess Around" and "Gallion Stomp".

New Bill EvansTime Remembered (2LP Bill Evans Trio At Shelly's Manne-Hole) ... LP
Riverside/Milestone, 1963. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great west coast live date from Bill Evans – one that showed that his magic on the keys was equally at home in LA as it was in New York! The session's especially noteworthy for the presence of drummer Larry Bunker – a great player who worked on countless recordings, both jazz and non-jazz, but who hits a new level here with the Evans Trio – one that almost matches that of Paul Motian for his sensitivity and lyrical interplay with Evans' piano and the bass of Chuck Israels! This later pressing features a full LP of previously unreleased muci from the concert, and titles include "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "The Boy Next Door", "Swedish Pastry", "Who Cares", "Everything Happens To Me", "Time Remembered", "Lover Man", "Blues In F/Five" and "Round Midnight".

New Johnny GriffinBig Soul Band ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet little album from Johnny – quite different than most of his other sessions at the time, as this one features a big band – a "Big Soul Band", as the title says – filled with some strong Chicago and soul jazz players, and featuring killer arrangements by the great Norman Simmons! Simmons' was just bubbling up at the time – and he had a sock soul jazz sound that was part of his time on the Chicago scene, and which, unfortunately, rarely achieved as strong of recorded expression as it did on this album. Griffin's a heck of a great player, even at this age, and the strength of his horn sits nicely in the front of a great ensemble that also includes Pat Patrick, Matthew Gee, Julian Priester, Frank Strozier, Bobby Timmons, Harold Mabern, Vic Sproles, and Charlie Persip. Titles include a number of Simmons originals – like "Meditation", "Panic Room Blues", and "Holla" – plus a great reading of Timmons' "So Tired", and traditionals like "Deep River", "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen" and "Wade In The Water" and Junior Mance's "Jubilation".

New Johnny GriffinKerry Dancers ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really unique album in the career of Johnny Griffin – and one of the few entries in the short-lived "jazz meets folk" genre of the 60s! The record features Griffin blowing through versions of older folk numbers – mostly traditional tunes, re-arranged by Johnny here with a swinging vibe that's a bit soul jazz, but also slightly more exotic and lyrical – in keeping with the timeless themes of the compositions. The rest of the group includes Barry Harris on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Ben Riley on drums – a trio who seem well-suited to match the sensitive spirit of some of the tunes! And while you might have reservations about a record like this, don't – because Griffin's tone and phrasing are great, and really keep things away from the gimmicky side of the spectrum! Titles include "The Kerry Dancers", "Green Grow The Rushes", "Black is The Color of My True Love's Hair", "25 1/2 Daze", and "The Londonderry Air" – plus the Griffin original "Oh Now I See".

Wonderful work from a player who never ceases to please us! Even at this early point in his career, Jimmy Heath had a soulful hipness that you'd be hard pressed to find in another musician – working with a vision of soul jazz that most other players wouldn't hip to until the 70s. Jimmy wrote most of the tracks on the set, and arranged the album with a style that's as strikingly modern as it is in the pocket and grooving – played superbly by a combo that include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Julius Watkins on French Horn, Cedar Walton on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Albert Heath on drums. Tracks include "Funny Time", "Down Shift", "The Quota", and "Bells & Horns". LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful combination we'd like to hear more of – one that comes from the meeting of Milt Jackson's vibes and the guitar of Wes Montgomery – both recorded here in easygoing brilliance! The session's a nice break from the usual sound of both players at the time – and although Wes played a bit with vibes when working in The Montgomery Brothers, the Jackson approach here is a bit different – more soulful, and a bit more driven on by the rhythm section of Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones.

These four came together often during the late 50s on some sessions, but the addition of Elvin opens things up nicely, and creates a rhythm sound that's a bit freer than some of those old Savoy sessions or Prestige blowing sides.

Clay plays mostly flute on the record, but does so with a hard edge that reminds us of Frank Wess' work from the same stretch – really bringing a raspy edge to the record, and seeming to bring out the same in Wes' guitar work.

A killer early album by Mongo Santamaria – almost an equal blend of jazz and Latin rhythms, and a great illustration of the unique contribution that he was making to both types of music back in the 60s! Mongo's group here is filled with some really great horn players – Nat Adderley on cornet, Marty Sheller on trumpet, Ronnie Capers on alto sax, and Pat Patrick on baritone – really hitting a hard-edged groove that's as filled with soul jazz solo inflections as it is with Mongo's great work on percussion! The reeds bring a sharp edge to the record that keeps on going throughout – pushing the set with a lot more soul than other Latin sides from the time, particularly those in the charanga mode. Most tracks are short and feisty, and titles include "Skins", "Fatback", "Dot Dot Dot", "Corn Bread Guajira", "Para Ti", "Sweet Tater Pie", and "Tacos". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's one of Evan's first sides from the Village Vanguard – and features the legendary trio that included Scott LaFaro on bass and Paul Motian on drums – both players who could shake free from conventional rhythmic roles in a piano trio, yet who also support Evans' lyrically modal playing here beautifully! The tracks are a bit longer than Bill's studio sides from the time, allowing for even more magical interplay on the keys – and titles include "My Foolish Heart", "Waltz For Debby", "Detour Ahead", "My Romance", "Some Other Time", and "Milestones".

Budd Johnson was one of those players from the old days who was continually drawing praise from younger and hipper musicians – crediting Budd with a tone and talent that was forever an inspiration to them. Case in point is this 1960 session, issued as part of the hip Cannonball Adderley Presents series on Riverside – one in which Budd is given free reign to arrange the albums tracks, coming up with a nice batch of originals and interesting tunes that show him to be a much more complex player than might be expected. The players include a four piece trumpet section with Nat Adderley, Clark Terry, Harry Edison, and Ray Nance – and rhythm is by Tommy Flanagan, Joe Benjamin, and Herb Lovelle. Tracks include "Blues For Lester", "All My Love", "Trinity River Bottom", and "Driftwood". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy blue label Riverside pressing with a deep groove. Cover has a half split top seam and some splitting on the bottom seam.)

New Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley & The Bossa Rio Sextet With Sergio Mendes ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good ... $7.99
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a mostly split top seam, wide masking tape on the bottom seam, and some stained spots on back.)

New Cannonball AdderleyJump For Joy ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Good ... $4.99
An interesting early side by Cannonball that captures him before he'd really found his voice – and when the folks at Mercury still didn't really know what to do with him. The record's a tightly arranged set of tracks from Duke Ellington's musical "Jump For Joy" – with arrangements by Bill Russo, and small group playing that includes Emmett Berry, Bill Evans, Barry Gabraith, Jimmy Cobb, and a small string section. The sound's actually quite haunting – and Cannon's alto solos remind us more of some of the best "with strings" soloing heard on Verve in the early 50s than they do his later soul jazz classics on Riverside or Capitol. That's ok with us, though – because the session's still got a lot to offer in that respect, and Cannonball handles the solos wonderfully! Titles include "Bli Blip", "Just Squeeze Me", "Nothin", and "The Tune Of The Hickory Stick". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Mercury pressing with deep groove. Cover has smoke discoloration around the edges.)

Albert AylerSwing Low Sweet Spiritual ... LP
Osmosis (Netherlands), 1964. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Pre-ESP Records work from the legendary Albert Ayler – and a really special set that definitely shows his strong ties to a previous legacy of African-American music! Ayler always clamed blues and other roots in his sound, but didn't always show them as clearly – given his free-thinking, forward-moving approach – yet this set has Albert really reworking an older influence, by taking older songs from gospel and secular sources, and using them as a completely compelling springboard for his new ideas on tenor and soprano sax! The album's the sort that David Murray might have cut in the mid 80s – but conceived by Ayler two decades before – and sadly unissued for years after its recording, possibly because it's a very sensitive, soulful set that's different than the frenetic power of later albums on ESP. A real treasure throughout – with work from Call Cobbs Jr on piano, Henry Grimes on bass, and Sonny Murray on drums – on titles that include "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", "Deep River", "Goin Home", "Ol Man River", "Down By The Riverside", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen".

John Jenkins, Clifford Jordan, & Bobby TimmonsJenkins, Jordan, & Timmons ... LP
New Jazz, 1957. Near Mint- ... $11.99
About as hip as you can get for a hardbop session – a real cooker from the left end of the spectrum, filled with great work from all three players in the title! The pairing of Clifford Jordan's tenor and John Jenkins' alto is especially nice – as Jordan seems to bring out a bit of a deeper groove than Jenkins' gets on other records. And we're always big fans of Bobby Timmons' work on piano in just about any group setting – and here he's working with unique rhythm backing by Wilbur Ware on bass and Dannie Richmond on drums – making a rare non-Mingus appearance on the set!. The tracks are long, but extremely tight – in the manner that you'd expect from some of those modernist soul jazz sets on Riverside/Jazzland, particularly the work of Johnny Griffin and Wilbur Ware – with titles that include "Cliff's Edge", "Tenderly", "Princess", and "Soft Talk".

Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
Not our usual bag, but some nice later material from George Lewis, performed with a sextet that includes Jim Robinson, Alvin Acorn, Alcide Pavageau, Joe Robichaux, and Joe Watkins. Titles include "Riverside Blues", "Streets Of The City", "Weary Blues", and "Runnin Wild". David Stone Martin cover, too. LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith & Wes MontgomeryJimmy & Wes – The Dynamic Duo ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
Excellent meeting between 2 mighty talents who rarely recorded together! Oliver Nelson did the arrangements and leads a big band, but the real focus is on Jimmy and Wes' solos, which are given a lot of room to roam in long tracks like "James & Wes", "Night Train", and "Down By The Riverside". Nice hard playing from Jimmy, with that great tone that he was getting in the mid 60's, and lots of very clean Hammond lines on his solos. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, some pen, and small stains across the back.)

Sonny StittTurn It On! ... LP
Prestige, 1971. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Stitt's in the funky Prestige sound of the early 70s – complete with Idris Muhammad on drums, organ by Leon Spencer, guitar by Melvin Sparks, and trumpet by Virgil Jones. After years of noodling around on the Varitone, never quite hitting his right moment, Stitt breaks out nicely in the company of these hot young funky players. The record's got a few mellow moments that point towards his older ballad style, but the funky numbers are the best. Titles include "Turn It On", "The BBQ Man", and "Miss Riverside". LP, Vinyl record album

Clark Terry/Kenny DorhamTop Trumpets ... LP
Jazzland, Late 50s. Very Good ... $16.99
A strange little album that combines tracks from 2 different earlier Riverside LPs – Serenade To A Bus Set by Clark Terry, and another session that features Kenny Dorham and Ernie Henry, possibly issued under Henry's name as Seven Standards & A Blues. The Terry set features Johnny Griffin, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – on tracks that include "Boomerang", "Digits", and "Donna Lee". The Dorham set features Henry, Wilbur Ware, and GT Hogan – on the tracks "Soon", "Sposin", and "Lotus Blossom". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny LytleHappy Ground! (Jazzland LP – 1961) ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of Johnny Lytle's monster vibes 'n organ LPs from the early 60's. Released on the Jazzland subsidiary of Riverside, and a tough one to find! The album comes complete with the great original track "Lela", a jazz dance classic if there ever was one, and other nice tracks like "Happy Ground" and "Tag Along". Milt Harris plays organ, and Peppy Hinnant's on drums, giving the session the same great jumpy feel that he adds to all of Lytle's work. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Orphem pressing. Side 2 has a mark that clicks a bit on track four. Cover has light wear, a bumped corner, and a sticker on the back.)

New Gichy Dan's Beachwood #9Gichy Dan's Beachwood #9 ... LP
RCA, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Did August Darnell ever stop working in the late 70s? He had Kid Creole, Dr Buzzard's Savannah Band, Don Armando, Elbow Bones, Cristina, and countless other projects all getting his magical retro disco touch – including Gichy Dan's Beachwood #9, a group who only recorded one album, but who have a sound that's prime Darnell all the way. Take the Kid Creole groove, and mix it up with a bit more Latin and exotic influences, and you're pretty close to the sound of Gichy Dan. Darnell wrote and produced, and played with the group – and the overall feel isn't as disco as other projects – in a good way. Titles include "Splendor In The Grass", "Laissez Faire", "Young Hearts", "Lady From The Caribbean", and "Winter On Riverside Drive". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, some seam splitting, tape and a rip on the bottom seam, the remnants of a sticker, and a few small stains.)

New Sun RaHeliocentric Worlds Of Sun Ra Vol 1 ... LP
ESP, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal set from Sun Ra – even if it's one of his few 60s albums not on the Saturn label! The set was done for ESP during the glory days of that avant powerhouse – a perfect match, given the Arkestra's relocation to New York, and the label's ability to reach out to big new audiences for exciting music – a fact that certainly made this album one of the most widely-circulated Ra albums for many years to come. The group here works in formation that holds up strongly with the Saturn sides – John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on alto, Teddy Nance on trombone, Chris Capers on trumpet, Danny Davis on flute and alto, and Ra on piano, bass marimba, and some especially nice electronic celeste! Things get quite out at points – freer almost than other Arkestra sides of the time – and titles include "Outer Nothingness", "Other Worlds", "Nebulae", "Dancing In the Sun", "The Cosmos", and "Of Heavenly Things". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label pressing with brown text in a black & white cover with Riverside Drive address.)
