Stan GetzBig Band Bossa Nova ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
An overlooked gem from the Verve bossa years – a session that features the sweet tenor sax work of Stan Getz, alongside some swinging bossa arrangements from the great Gary McFarland! Given the strength of Gary's own work for Verve at the time, it's no surprise that he's a perfect accompanist for Getz on the session – working with just the right amount of space to let Stan stand out from the pack, and really creating a great blend of Brazilian rhythms and some of the modder 60s styles at Verve. Gary contributed a number of originals to the session too – and titles include "Bim Bom", "Manlancolico", "Balanco No Samba", "Noite Triste", "Chega De Saudade", and "Manha De Carnival".

Stan GetzCaptain Marvel ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A wicked album that's one of Stan Getz's best from the 70s! The record features Stan reunited with Chick Corea, whose warm lyricism was the lynchpin in Getz's landmark Sweet Rain – the stunning session from 1968 that is perhaps our favorite-ever Getz album. Corea plays electric piano here, but with none of the indulgence that he was lapsing into at the time. His blocky chords stake out a stark new territory, into which Getz solos beautifully, into a range yet untapped at that time in his career. Tony Williams augments the group on drums, giving the whole thing a sense of freedom, but also a nice tight swing. Tracks include "La Fiesta", "Five Hundred Miles High", "Times Lie", and "Day Waves".

New Stan GetzDolphin ... LP
Concord, 1981. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of the best later moments from the great Stan Getz – a set we might even place on the same level as his 60s work for Verve – and certainly at the same par as his records in the 70s for Columbia! Yet this set is quite different than that latter batch – as it has Getz really going back to basics – hitting an open, flowing vibe that shows all the best elements he picked up from 60s changes – including bossa, traces of Coltrane, and more – but delivered with a wonderfully understated style throughout. The tracks are long, and have a magnificent flow – and Getz works with a great quartet that includes Lou Levy on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. Titles include a sublime reading of Luiz Eca's "The Dolphin", plus "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", "Joy Spring", "A Time For Love", and "Close Enough For Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzFocus ... LP
Verve, 1961. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
Oft-overlooked album that's actually one of Getz's most far-reaching of the 60s! Recorded in the year before he got caught up in his bossa pop frenzy, the record shows Getz as a darkly toned modernist, weaving out complex solos over the album's extended suite "Focus", written and arranged by the great Eddie Sauter, with whom Stan worked on the Mickey One soundtrack. The album's a surprisingly refreshing one, and shows yet another complex side of Getz's endlessly compelling career. Titles include "Pan", "Her", "Night Rider", and "Once Upon A Time".

Stan GetzGroovin High ... LP
Crown/Modern, Late 40s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Some of the most hard-edged work cut by Stan Getz in the early years – a great reminder that he could really open up with the best of the bop world – and not just lay back and get mellow with an electric guitar! The setting has Stan working with some key west coast talents – including Wardell Gray on tenor, Sonny Criss and Willie Smith on alto, Charlie Shavers and Howard McGhee on trumpets, and Red Norvo on vibes – all players who stretch out with Stan on some longer open-ended tracks that really echo the west coast jam session mode of the time! Titles include "Hot House", "How High The Moon", "I Got Rhythm", and "Groovin High". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzSound – Stan Getz Plays ... LP
Roost, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $36.99
Wonderful stuff – a mid 50s LP that compiles some of Stan Getz's best icy sides for Roost Records – material that has the tenorist blowing in a way that really had folks sit up and take notice! There's some of the warmth of Lester Young in Stan's playing here, but also a crisp, modern edge too – a sign of the new voices coming forth on the tenor in the 50s – of which Stan was first and foremost! The record features material from two different sessions – one a quartet that includes Horace Silver on piano and Walt Bolden on drums; the other a bit later, in Sweden, with Bengt Hallberg on piano. Titles include boppers like "Tootsie Roll" and "Hershey Bar", plus Stan's classic reading of "Dear Old Stockholm" – always a treat! LP, Vinyl record album
(No deep groove – but record and cover are great!)

New Stan GetzStan Getz (Prestige – early singles/Stan Getz With Cal Tjader) ... LP
Prestige, 1949/1950/1958. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A 2LP set that compiles early recordings made by Getz for Prestige – about half of them titles that were issued on early singles, combined with material from the album Stan Getz With Cal Tjader. The early singles feature a few tunes with the "brothers" style sound – Brew Moore, Allen Eager, Zoot Sims, and Al Cohn on tenor with Stan – plus some other quartet sides. The Cal Tjader album is killer record from the late 50s – and one that hints at all the sides Stan would take in later years: his bossa sides, his vibes quartet with Gary Burton, and the playful lyricism of his recordings with Chick Corea. The set was recorded in San Francisco, when Stan had that great bassist Scott LaFaro in his group, and when he was brought into the studio by Fantasy to meet with local talents like Cal Tjader, Eddie Duran, and Vince Guaraldi. Billy Higgins is also added on drums, giving the set a lively songlike sound that's just great. The group works incredibly well together, and it's a shame they only really gelled for this rare non-Verve session. Titles include "Big Bear", "Crow's Nest", "Lady In Red", "Prezervation", "Five Brothers", "Crazy Chords", "Long Island Sound", "My Buddy", and "Ginza Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzVoices ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
An amazingly seductive album from Stan Getz! The record features Getz's tenor blowing breezily away, amidst sophisticated arrangements with touches of dark easy scoring, post-bossa Brazilian writing, and early CTI production. Claus Ogerman arranged the whole set, and the overall feel is very similar to From The Hot Afternoon, which has Paul Desmond blowing in a similar style to arrangements by Don Sebesky. The core group features some hip players – like Herbie Hancock, Jim Hall, and Ron Carter – and the larger backing has the "voices" you'd guess from the title. Tracks include "Once", "Darling Joe", "Midnight Samba", "Little Rio", "Infinidad", and "Where Flamingo's Fly". LP, Vinyl record album

New Stan GetzWhat The World Needs Now – Stan Getz Plays Bacharach & David ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
Stan Getz meets Burt Bacharach – a heavenly combination that brings together two of our most favorite musical talents of the 60s! And while we're at it, we'd also like to mention a third – Chicago soul arranger Richard Evans, who handles all the backdrops for this set – bringing in a groove that you might not expect for tunes by Burt Bacharach – not exactly Charles Stepney at Cadet, but not far, either – a perfect setting for the sparkling, lyrical tone that Getz was hitting at this point in his career. The tunes are familiar, but the blend of talents really keeps things fresh – and with extra contributions from Herbie Hancock on piano and Jim Hall on guitar, you can bet there's plenty going on here. Titles include "Wives & Lovers", "Windows Of The World", "House Is Not A Home", "Walk On By", and "Trains & Boats & Planes". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan & OthersJazz Giants '58 ... LP
Verve, 1958. Very Good ... $8.99
An all-star session put together by Verve in 1958 – one that features a septet of some of the label's biggest giants in jazz at the time! The format here is a bit open-ended – almost like some of the earlier JATP sessions on Verve – with lots of room for personal interaction between the soloists, especially the horn players in the lead! These include Stan Getz on tenor, Gerry Mulligan on baritone sax, and Harry Edison on trumpet – working alongside Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Bellson on drums. Titles include a beautiful extended "Ballad Medley" – really a great illustration of the freedoms that Verve brought to jazz recording in the 50s – plus the titles"Chocolate Sundae", "When Your Lover Has Gone", and "Candy".

A great little set that shouldn't work as well as it does! Mulligan's baritone work is cut nicely by Getz's wispy alto – making for a combination of horns that yeilds some wonderful moments that opens both players up more than usual for the time. Titles include "Anything Goes", "Ballad", and "That Old Feeling" – and the rhythm section features Lou Levy, Stan Levey, and Ray Brown. LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzQuartets ... LP
Prestige/OJC, 1949/1950. New Copy (reissue)... Around November 11, 2014
Groundbreaking early work from Stan Getz – a 12" LP that compiles earlier recordings made for Prestige at the end of the 40s – all of which are a perfect exercise in tone, timing, and balance! The setting is simple – quartets with either Al Haig or Tony Aless on piano – but Getz makes magic from the start, flowering the tunes with inventive twists and turns in his horn – not in a simple boppish copycat mode, but in a style that's dripping with soul and feeling all the way through! The record won't hit you over the head as much as some of Stan's later Verve work, but it's almost even better because of that – as even in the simplest of settings, Getz really manages to grab our ear right away, and amaze us with his deft command and personal direction of his instrument! Titles include "Long Island Sound", "Mar-Cia", "Indian Summer", "Crazy Chords", "There's A Small Hotel", "The Lady In Red", "My Old Flame", "What's New", and "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams".

Verve, Early 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Nicely grooving material – with tracks that are a bit shorter than the usual Verve "celebrity meets celebrity" set, but which are no less well-played. Dizzy is always fantastic in this sort of loosely-crafted setting – and Getz's playing here is nicely relaxed, with more open-ended blowing than you might hear in some of his own sets as a leader. The pair play with backing by the Oscar Peterson trio – on titles that include "Siboney", "Impromptu", "Girl Of My Dreams", and "It Don't Mean A Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

New Stan GetzDynasty ... LP
Verve, 1971. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great lost album from Stan Getz! The record features Stan in a totally new setting, playing with some relatively unfamiliar French talents – Eddie Louiss on organ, Rene Thomas on guitar, and Bernard Lubat on drums. Louiss is incredible, and has a free spacey sound that recalls Larry Young – which works perfectly with Getz's post-Coltrane explorations here. The whole album's a triumph, and a tribute to Stan's never-ending quest for new sounds, despite the fact that labels always wanted him to reproduce his bigger hits. Titles include "Our Kind Of Sabi", "Song For Martine", "Invitation", and "Dum Dum". All tracks are long, and the album's a delightful meeting of European jazz and masterful solo talents!

Prestige, 1949/1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 60s album that collects earlier 10" sessions by Stan – one from 1949, and one from 1954! The 1949 sessions have Stan playing in a group with Terry Gibbs, Shorter Rogers, and George Wallington – on tunes that include "Michelle (parts 1 & 2)", "T&S", "Cuddles", and "Terry's Tune". The 1954 sessions are a bit more in the classic "Early Stan" mode – as they feature Getz working in a quintet with Jimmy Raney on guitar and Hall Overton on piano – very much in the Roost mode that first got Stan his fame, with that amazing tone really opening up on numbers that include "Motion", "Lee", "Signal", and "Round Midnight".

Stan Getz '57 – although the material was recorded in 1953 – a key year for Stan's musical development – at a time when he was just beginning to unfurl some of his best new ideas at Verve Records! The album's a crucial session with Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone – also at a great early point in his career, and making some really magical sounds next to Stan's tenor – both of them a mix of lyrical and modern, yet in different ways – and with different tonal ranges that really make the music sparkle. Other players include John Williams on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Frank Isola on drums – and the tracks are nice and long too – titles that include "Fascinating Rhythm", "Minor Blues", "Pot Luck", and "Love & the Weather".

Norgran/Verve, Early 50s. Used 2LP Box ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The rare 2LP version of Stan Getz At The Shrine – a classic west coast recording by Stan – recorded at the Shrine Theater in LA, with a group that includes Bob Brookmeyer on trombone and John Williams on piano! The groove is more similar to Stan's eastern sides of the time, given his bandmates here – but the sound is still quite wonderful, and almost a relaxed Verve answer to the sound of some of the Pacific Jazz dates of the period. Rhythm is by Bill Anthony on bass and either Frank Isola or Art Madigan on drums – and titles include "Flamingo", "Lover Man", "Pernod", "Tasty Pudding", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", "Open Country", "We'll Be Together Again", and "Feather Merchant".

Verve, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Stan Getz's greatest records – no fooling! This gem often gets overlooked because it was issued in the years between Stan's bossa recordings and his later pop experiments – but trust us, it's a totally solid jazz album, with a quality level that was hardly ever matched by Getz again! The tracks are all long, sweeping, and very spiritual – and the group's a soulful batch of freer players (Chick Corea on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Grady Tate on drums) – all of whom really open Stan up, and drive him to give out some of the best solos of his careers, with a tone that's completely sublime. All tracks are long, and the album includes an amazing version of Corea's "Litha", plus the cuts "Windows", "Con Alma", and "O Grande Amor". One of our favorite jazz albums ever!

New Stan GetzVoyage ... LP
Blackhawk, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A standout session from Stan Getz – one of the real gems of his later years, and a masterpiece of well-blown and confident tones! Getz here has a near-perfect form – a poise and balance that comes from decades of woodshedding on tenor sax, but which is still deeply personal, and one of the most honest sounds we can think of on his instrument. At a time when other players were often bumping into other too-contemporary modes, Stan lays back and blows in a warm acoustic setting – with Kenny Barron on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums – plus some additional percussion from Babatunde Lea, who works here in a relatively gentle manner. As with most of the Getz/Barron work of the later years, the balance here is beautiful – never too far-out or indulgent, despite the length of some of the tracks – and almost in that Sweet Rain style of playing that Stan first opened up into at the end of the 60s. Titles include "I Wanted To Say", "Yesterdays", "Dreams", "Falling In Love", and "Voyage". LP, Vinyl record album

New Stan Getz & Astrud GilbertoGetz Au Go Go ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible lineup that made for some wonderfully moody sounds! The vibes/tenor approach was a high point in Getz's career – especially as the young Burton could create these beautiful washes of sound that were a perfect counterpoint to Getz's breathy playing. And although Astrud Gilberto is thrown into the mix here to give the album a bit of bossa appeal – vocals on 6 titles that include "Corovado", "Eu E Voce", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "One Note Samba", "Only Trust Your Heart", and "The Telephone Song" – there's also 4 more tracks that are all instrumental, and which show the Getz/Burton union in all of its glory! These tracks include "6 Nix Pix Flix", "The Singing Song", "Here's That Rainy Day", and "Summertime". And for reference, the rest of the group includes Gene Cherico on bass and Joe Hunt on drums – but on 3 tracks, Chuck Israels plays bass instead of Cherico, and on a few others, Helcio Milito plays drums instead of Hunt, and Kenny Burrell joins in on guitar.

Getz and Johnson are backed by Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, and Connie Kay – and the tracks are longish, with plenty of solo room in the open jam session mode of the recording.

Verve, 1963. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with guitarist Joao Gilberto really pushed the format over the top – thanks in part to the vocals of Gilberto's lovely wife Astrud, who'd never sung in the studio before this famous recording! The record created a sound that was copied endlessly, and which catapulted Astrud to unbelievable fame worldwide – even though she was only included in the session at the last minute, because Joao couldn't sing in English – and the mix of Stan's tenor and Joao's guitar is wonderful – and backed throughout by this light, lilting bossa nova rhythms. Titles include the classic recording of "Girl From Ipanema", plus loads of other bossa classics like "Desafinado", "Cocovado", "O Grande Amor", and "Vivo Sonhando". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later Polydor pressing.)

One of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of long tracks, and nice laid-back solos by both Getz and Almeida – who's getting in some of his few jazz licks of the 60s here, working in a groove similar to that of his earlier sides with Bud Shank, but which sounds almost even better in the languid company of Getz. Cuts include "Outra Vez", "Winter Moon", "Maracatu-Too", and "Samba Da Sahra". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

A real standout in the Stan Getz catalog of the 70s – a session of mostly spare duets with pianist Jimmy Rowles, done in a way that really breaks from the format of Stan's other work of the time! Rowles here has a raspy warmth that brings out new voicings in Getz's tenor – an earthiness that comes through especially well on the half of the album that features only Stan and Jimmy playing together alone, but which still shines on the few other tracks that feature the bass of Buster Williams and drums of Elvin Jones expanding the group. 2 short tracks feature only solo piano, and Rowles also sings on a number of the album's tracks, in that breathy mode of his that rarely got captured this well on record – and one other track features Jon Hendricks leading a vocal quartet through a rendition of "The Chess Players". Other titles include "It'll Never Be The Same", "Body & Soul", "What Am I Here For", "The Hour Of Parting", "The Peacocks", "Rose Marie", and "Serenade To Sweden". LP, Vinyl record album

Storyville, 1954. Very Good ... $49.99
A great early session from trombonist Bob Brookmeyer – recorded with a light easy swing that's similar to his mid 50s work with Stan Getz, and in a format that's possibly more relaxed overall! This time around, Bob's working with Al Cohn on tenor – a nice choice for the date, and a player who gives the record a different feel than the more famous Getz/Brookmeyer combination of the time. The rest of the group includes John Williams on piano, Frank Isola on bass, and Bill Anthony on drums – and there's some great interplay between Cohn's tenor and Bob's trombone – the latter of which has that trademark compressed sound throughout! Titles include "Jive At Five", "In The Mode", "Skylark", and "Open Country". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice and clean – and cover is in great shape!)

New Coleman HawkinsDesafinado ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
The Hawk, in prime late form, lays down some beautiful tenor solos over gentle bossa nova accompaniment – working in a mode that's much more satisfying than just a "classic player meets bossa" session, angularly crafting the solos with that dark edge that he had in all of his later work. The groove's similar to a Stan Getz bossa outing, with light acoustic guitar backing him up, but Hawkins' playing is very deep and soulful, and the groove gets very low. With the great cuts "Samba Para Bean" and "Stumpy Bossa Nova". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label 70s pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

Herbie Mann & Joao GilbertoHerbie Mann & Joao Gilberto With Antonio Carlos Jobim ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Although Herbie and Joao are listed together in the artist credits together for the record, they don't really play together on the record – as did Joao and Stan Getz on their album together. Instead, they trade off tracks of bossa nova material, recorded with Jobim in Rio – Joao's by EMI/Odeon, Herbie's by Atlantic. The set includes a host of great light breezy bossa stuff – like "Amor Em Paz", "O Barquinho", "Bim Bom", "Bolinha De Papel", and "Deve Ser Amor". Not totally over the top, but a very nice batch of breezy bossa tracks with lots of light flute and guitar lines floating around! LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue & green label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Modern Jazz Society/John LewisModern Jazz Society Presents A Concert Of Contemporary Music (Verve pressing) ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
A mixture of Verve regulars and early third streamers join together in this one-off session designed as a focus on the writing talents of John Lewis. Most of the material takes off from Lewis' work with the MJQ, and the band includes two of his bandmates from that group, Connie Kay & Percy Heath – as well as soloists Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, Aaron Sachs, and Lucky Thompson. Titles include "Little David's Fugue", "Sun Dance", "Django", and "Midsommer". LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry Mulligan & Ben WebsterGerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster ... LP
Verve, 1959. Very Good ... $16.99
Mulligan always sounds great next to a tenor – especially in the Verve series that has him teamed up with players like Johnny Hodges, Paul Desmond, or Stan Getz. This release, cut with Ben Webster upfront, is one of the best of that series – and features the pair blowing easily and soulfully on some long tracks with rhythm by Jimmy Rowles, Leroy Vinnegar, and Mel Lewis. Titles include "Go Home", "The Cat Walk", "Sunday", "Who's Got Rhythm", and "Tell Me When". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear, seam splitting, and aging.)

New Lalo Schifrin & Bob BrookmeyerSamba Para Dos ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
A great lost groover on Verve – recorded during the heyday of the label's bossa years with Stan Getz! The record features Bob Brookmeyer fronting a large group arranged and conducted by Lalo Schifrin – soloing over the top, while Lalo comes up with sparkling bossa-tinged grooves that are in the spirit of his best soundtrack work of the mid 60s. Brookmeyer's playing is great too – very different than his sparer, modernist work on other records – and very much in the tradition of Brazilian trombone players who were a key force in bossa jazz at the time. The set includes one long original, "Samba Para Dos", plus shorter standards like "My Funny Valentine", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You" – all taken in great jazzy bossa versions! LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot SimsNew Beat Bossa Nova Vol 1 ... LP
Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
A great chapter in 60s bossa jazz – Zoot Sims "answer" to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – recorded in a similar jazz-meets-bossa style, with some great guitar work by Jim Hall! Zoot's solos are a bit tighter and not as laidback as Stan's – giving a more jazz-based sound to the work that makes for a nice change – and most of the tunes feature larger backings from Manny Albam and Al Cohn – never too over-arranged, but with enough of a full swinging sound to set things right. Hall's guitar works surprisingly well in the setting – and titles include "Barquinho De Papel", "Ciume", "Recado Bossa Nova (parts 1 & 2)", and "Cano Canoe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing, with deep groove.)

New Billie HolidayBillie Holiday At Storyville (white vinyl) (2014 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Storyville/ORG, 1951/1953. New Copy (reissue)... Around November 28, 2014
Rare live material from Billie Holiday – recorded at the Storyville club in Boston, and featuring some especially hip small combo backing! A good portion of the work appears to have been broadcast on radio – which means that the sound quality is professional, and done for a bigger audience – at a level that easily matches Holiday albums for bigger labels at the time. One set of tracks from October of 1951 feature Stan Getz on tenor and Buster Harding on piano – and another batch from a week later features Harding's trio, without Getz. The last set of tracks is from 1953, with Carl Drinkard leading a trio with Jimmy Woode on bass – and the album features a total of 13 tracks that include "You Go To My Head", "Willow Weep For Me", "I Cover The Waterfront", "He's Funny That Way", "Billie's Blues", "Miss Brown To You", and "Them There Eyes". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Saturday, 11/29/14.

New Stanley Clarke & Chick CoreaGriffith Park Collection ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal set in the rebirth of straight jazz in the early 80s – a wonderful record with a much warmer, more traditional feel than you'd expect from some of the players involved! Bassist Stanley Clarke and pianist Chick Corea really return to their roots here – Stanley with some of the bold acoustic tones of his earliest soul jazz years, Chick with those modern-yet-soulful piano lines he first brought to magical recordings of the 60s – including the Sweet Rain session with Stan Getz. Freddie Hubbard's also in the group – blowing wonderfully with that reborn sound of his early 80s years, still some of the best work he ever did – and the group also features Joe Henderson on tenor, always a treat, and Lenny White on drums, really keeping things focused. The set's a gem through and through – and titles include "L's Bop", "Happy Times", "Remember", "Guernica", "October Ballade", and "Why Wait". LP, Vinyl record album

New Herb EllisNothing But The Blues ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's a bit of a shocker – in that that we don't normally think of Herb as a bluesy player – but it's pretty darn honest, given the great sound of this set! Herb's playing in a really mellow and laidback style for this session – working with Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Ray Brown, and Stan Levey on a set of bluesy tunes that feature his guitar in the lead, working through some magical solos that are far more expressive than on some of his work on other albums from the time. The record's a genuine surprise, and a real lost Verve treasure – as Ellis steps out with a great tone and some nice rootsy solos on tracks that include "Patti Cake", "Blues For Junior", "Blues For Janet", "Pap's Blues", and "Tin Roof Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

New Charlie ByrdBossa Nova Pelos Passaros ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Guitarist Charlie Byrd was one of the first American players to record bossa nova tunes – but although his work with Stan Getz has always been well-documented, some of the titles under his own name can be quite hard to come by. This is one of the best ones that Charlie cut on his own – and it features tight guitar work in a mode that's similar to that used by Baden Powell on his early bossa recordings, augmented by trio rhythms – plus some occasional larger backings by Walter Raim, and some extended group settings that feature Charlie Hampton on alto, Earl Swope on trombone, and Willie Rodriguez on percussion. Tracks include "Ho Ba La La", "Samba Triste", "Yvone", "O Barquinho", "Un Abraco Do Bonfa", and "O Passaro". LP, Vinyl record album
