Wardell GrayWay Out Wardell ... CD
RPM/Boplicity (UK), 1956. New Copy ... $11.99
Seminal sounds from the LA scene of the late 40s – one of the most important records to showcase the tenor talents of the legendary Wardell Gray – a key player on the harder side of the west coast for its formative bop years – and one whose career was cut short all too soon! The material here really shows that strong LA tradition of fervent jam session work – recorded here with Gray alongside additional tenor from Vido Musso – plus guitar from Barney Kessel and Irving Ashby, trumpet from Ernie Royal and Howard McGhee, trombone from Vic Dickenson, piano from Arnold Ross and Erroll Garner, and bass from Red Callender and Harry Babison. Tracks are nice and long – with plenty of room for Gray to show of his solo talents – and titles include "Tenderly", "Blue Lou", "Just You Just Me", and "One O'Clock Jump". CD

Alberta HunterRemember My Name ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Great later work from vocalist Alberta Hunter – a really well-recorded 70s session that was also done as a soundtrack – but which stands beautifully on its own! Backings here are by a great small combo, led by tenorist Budd Johnson and pianist Gerald Cook – with some nicely bluesy touches from Wally Richardson on guitar, plus trad horn lines from Vic Dickenson on trombone and Doc Cheatham on trumpet. Hunter's vocals are great – raspy enough to underscore her age and experience, yet wonderfully fluid as well – hardly dimmed at all by her advanced years. Titles include "I've Got A Mind To Ramble", "Workin Man", "You Reap Just What You Sow", "The Love I Have For You", "Chirpin The Blues", and "Some Sweet Day". CD

Buddy TateTexas Tenor – Quartet & Quintet/All Star Jive At Five ... CD
Storyville (Denmark), 1975. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.99
Two 70s sessions from Texas tenor Buddy Tate – both recorded overseas, and packaged here together as a single set! First up is Quartet & Quintet – a date that has Buddy working with a strong rhythm section that includes Tete Montoliu on piano, Bo Steif on bass, and Sven Erik Norregaard on drums – plus a bit of guest violin from Finn Ziegler on two tracks. Most numbers are long, and really focus on Tate's bold, classic tone on the tenor – and titles include "Buddy's Blues", "Just You Just Me", "I Surrender Dear", "Broadway", and "In A Mellotone" – done at a long 17 minute run! Next up is Jive At Five – a record cut by the Buddy Tate All Starts – a group that also features Doc Cheatham on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, and Johnny Guarnieri on piano! As you'd guess from the lineup, there's an undercurrent of trad in the session – but all players certainly show off some more contemporary leanings in their solos – on titles that include "Constantly", "Jive At Five", "Sweethearts On Parade", and "I Never Knew". Also features a few bonus alternate takes. CD

Lester YoungJazz Giants '56 (70s pressing) ... LP
Verve, 1956. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
A set with the date of 1956 very firmly planted in the title – but one that's also gone onto become a timeless ensemble session from Verve Records! The feel here is almost in jam session mode, but perhaps a bit tighter – a group of all-star players from the mid-50s, with Lester Young on tenor, Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, Teddy Wilson on piano, and Freddie Green on guitar – a nice mix of generations and styles that really helps open up the sound of the record. Tracks are nice and long, taken in that open, solo-conscious Verve mode – and tunes include "I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan", "This Year's Kisses", "You Can Depend On Me", and "I Didn't Know What Time It Was". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

New Coleman HawkinsColeman Hawkins All Stars ... CD
Prestige/Swingville/OJC, 1960. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the sprawling session you'd usually get from a record with "all stars" in the title, and instead a tight small group record that features Coleman Hawkins at his later best! The setting is an outwardly trad one – recorded for the Swingville label with Joe Thomas on trumpet and Vic Dickenson on trombone – but there's a decidedly modern feel to the way that Hawk opens up the tunes – that undercurrent of darkness in his best later work, accented nicely by a hip rhythm trio that features Tommy Flanagan on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. Titles include "Cool Blue", "Some Stretching", "You Blew Out The Flame In My Heart", and "More Bounce To The Vonce". CD

New Jonah JonesJonah Jones Sextet ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the Jonah Jones of Capitol Records crossover fame – but a different version of the player who's even leaner and meaner overall – set up here in a cool combo for this rare 50s date for Bethlehem Records! Jonah's still got some bright tones in his trumpet, but the whole group really gets down to business right away – shaking up some fresh tones from older New Orleans styles, all with an edgey energy that shows that the 50s revival wasn't just about playing the same on ways. Other players include Vic Dickenson and Urbie Green on trombone, Edmond Hall on clarinet, and George Clark on tenor – and titles include "Beale Street Blues", "JJ Special", "Stars Fell On Alabama", "European Blues", and "You're The Creame In My Coffee".

New Ruby Braff & Ellis LarkinsComplete Duets (Two Part Inventions In Jazz Vols 1 & 2/2x2 – Braff & Larkins Play Rogers & Hart/Ruby Braff Special) ... CD
Vanguard/Definitive (Spain), 1955. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A unique collection of laidback jazz recordings – recorded in a very spare setting that has trumpeter Ruby Braff playing with pianist Ellis Larkins, and no other accompaniment! The setting's quite unusual for the time, and it makes for a relaxed intimate meeting between two strong talents that really differs from the work that either of them were recording elsewhere. But even more incredible is the way that the two players come together without additional support – working beautifully in a format that would have others faltering – always swinging the tunes despite the lack of bass or drums, and clearly very at home here with the extra space that lets both of them open up creatively! 2 CD set features 25 titles that are exclusively Larkins/Braff duets recorded for Vanguard in 1955 – plus an additional 8 numbers from a sextet session that features Braff with Vick Dickenson, Sam Margolis, and Nat Pierce. Titles include "Love For Sale", "Skylark", "Blue Moon", "Blues For Ellis", "Please", "Sailboat In The Moonlight", "Linger Awhile", "I'm In The Market For You", "Where Or When", "I Could Write A Book", "The Girl Friend", "Little Girl Blue", and "Thou Swell".
