Woody HermanDouble Exposure ... LP
Chess/Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
Forget everything you know about Woody Herman – and enjoy this amazing record! The album compiles sides that Woody recorded at the end of the 60s, when he was working with the Chess/Cadet team on some fantastic funky big band material. Most of the tracks feature arrangements by Richard Evans, the genius behind many of the best Chess soul recordings – and he gives the tracks a funky sound that you'd never expect from Woody Herman. The whole album's a total delight, and we never tire of listening to it – especially the version of "Ponteio", plus "The Hut", "Sex Machine", "Lancaster Gate", "Light My Fire", and a great early version of Donny Hathaway's "Flying Easy"! Hathaway also plays organ on some tracks, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Woody HermanGiant Steps ... LP
Fantasy, 1973. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Genius 70s work from Woody Herman – funky big band with electric touches, served up on a range of wonderful tunes! Woody's still at the helm of the group on saxes and clarinet – but as with other Fantasy and Cadet albums, the real thanks here goes to arrangers – who include Bill Stapleton, Alan Broadbent, Tony Klatka, and Richard Evans – who's making a brief post-Cadet appearance here to serve up a fierce version of his classic "First Thing I Do" – a jazzy reworking of the Joyce Williams tune, done here with a nice break, wah-wah guitar, and a real badass soundtrack style! Rhythm players include Joe Beck and Ray Barretto – and the whole album's great throughout. Titles include "Think On Me", "A Child Is Born", "Freedom Jazz Dance", "First Thing I Do", "Giant Steps", and a great take on Chick Corea's "La Fiesta", complete with electric piano!

Woody HermanHeavy Exposure ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Excellent stuff – a record that we love it to death, and listen to all the time! Woody Herman's band meets the soulful arrangements of Richard Evans, and the whole thing cooks nicely in the Chess studios in Chicago. The result is a tasty blend of soulful big band tracks, with a strident groove that Woody never duplicated, and with the kind of baroque arrangements that Evans was bringing to some of the best soul work on Cadet at the time. Donny Hathaway plays organ, and the group does a killer version of his own "Flying Easy". Other titles include "The Hut", "Sex Machine", and "It's Your Thing" – but it's all great!

Woody HermanHerd At Montreux ... LP
Fantasy, 1974. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Funky Woody caught live at Montreux – a really wonderful set that follows strongly from his tight grooves of the Cadet years, and which is easily one of his best for Fantasy! Despite the live setting, the group are every bit as tight as they were in the studio during these years – really cracking the rhythms at the bottom of the tunes, so that even unlikely numbers come up sounding nights and groovy. Arrangements are by Richard Evans, Gary Anderson, and Alan Broadbent – and titles include a surprisingly funky version of "Fanfare For The Common Man", the electric piano groover "Montevideo", a funky take on Billy Cobham's "Crosswinds", and versions of "Superstar" and "Can't Get Next To You".

Woody HermanLight My Fire ... LP
Cadet, 1968. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A masterpiece – one of 2 crazy albums in which Woody Herman's late band meets the Cadet arrangements of Richard Evans. You might think the combination wouldn't work – Woody's big band flourishes meeting up with Evans' compressed soulful grooves – but gosh, the record is simply incredible, and it's one that we'd never part with in a million billion years! Worth it alone for the version of Edu Lobo's "Pontieo", but there's lots of other nice stuff – like "I Say A Little Prayer", "Hush", "Keep On Keepin On", and "Light My Fire". LP, Vinyl record album

Hip Woody – recorded right after his years with Cadet, and in a similar funky big band vein! The record's got a very nice version of "Fat Mama", plus one of our all-time favorites, "Alone Again Naturally"! Players include Harold Danko on Fender Rhodes, Pat Martino on guitar, and Al Johnson on bass. Other tunes include "Bill's Blues", "Sandia Chicao", and "It's Too Late". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the hippest albums you could ever find from Woody Herman – hardly a big band outing, and instead a small combo set with Nat Adderley on trumpet, Charlie Byrd on guitar, and Eddie Costa on vibes.

Dick Collins & Runaway HerdHorn of Plenty ... LP
RCA, 1954. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
Trumpeter Dick Collins plays with a "runaway herd" of saxophonists culled from the band of his boss, Woody Herman – a really great lineup that features Al Cohn on tenor, Med Flory on alto, Jack Nimitz on baritone, and Bill Perkins on flute and tenor too! The blend of reeds is totally great – often used tightly to offset Collins' trumpet solos in the lead – well-blown and economical, but allowing for a bit of solo space at points for the reed players too. Rhythm is by Nat Pierce on piano, Red Kelly on bass, and Chuck Flores on drums – and the album's got a surprisingly easygoing feel at times, more so than other RCA dates of this type. Titles include "Angel Eyes", "Why Was I Born", "Tricky Dick", "No Soap", "Very Shifty", and "The Long Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has seam splitting.)

Chubby JacksonChubby Takes Over ... CD
Everest/Empire, 1958. Used ... $7.99
Don't hold Chubby's name against him – because this is a really great little set, leaner and meaner than you might expect! The album has Chubby taking over from Woody Herman – with whom he'd worked for many years, and from whom he got most of the players for this session. The album's got that tight ensemble feel of Woody's best 50s work – extremely powerful and hard-swinging, but with searing breakout room for the soloists – who include Al Cohn, Frank Rehack, Sam Most, and Sam Markowitz. Titles include "Tradition", "A Ballad For Jai", "Oh Look At Me Now", "Mt Everest", and "Yes Indeed". CD

Chubby JacksonOoh What An Outfit – New York 1949 ... CD
Uptown, 1949. New Copy 2 CDs ... $20.99 24.98
A marvelous document of the power of bassist Chubby Jackson at his best – served up here in a double-length package of rare recordings from the end of the 40s! Chubby has a really unique place in jazz – a special space between bop and swing, where he was able to work with some of the best players of his generation – and help forge an audience for the modern tones of the newer music by bringing in some of the more powerful elements of the old! This quality really comes through in the initial batch of big band recordings in the package, which take up most of CD1 – tunes that echo some of the work Jackson had done with Woody Herman's group in the late 40s, but arguably even more hard-biting and boppish – with strong work from Frank Socolow on alto, Teddy Charles on vibes, Ray Turner and Al Young on tenor, and the trio of Norman Faye, Al Porcino, and Charlie Walp on trumpets. Arrangements are by drummer Tiny Khan for the big band sides – and the set also features smaller ensemble work with Gene Roland's Boppers, led by trumpeter Gene Roland – plus work by the quintet of vibist Joe Roland with singer Paula Castle. The set also features a very cool combo recorded in Sweden – Chubby Jackson's Fifth Dimensional Jazz Group – with Conte Candoli on trumpet, Terry Gibbs on vibes, Lou Levy on piano, and Frank Socolow on tenor. The whopping package features 2CDs, 37 tracks – and mixes together live tracks, radio broadcasts, and some rare recording sessions too. CD

Jimmy WitherspoonJimmy Witherspoon At Monterey (Jimmy Witherspoon At The Monterey Jazz Festival) ... LP
Hi Fi, 1959. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Arguably one of the greatest albums ever cut by Jimmy Witherspoon – recorded live at an early Monterey Jazz Festival, and done in a style that shows the strong link between jazz and blues in Jimmy's work! The group on the set includes Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, Coleman Hawkins, and Woody Herman – and the longish tracks on the set give them all more than enough room to solo alongside Jimmy's bluesy vocals. The album's also one of the first to be produced by a young David Axelrod – and shows a clear respect for both the singer and the musicians, in a combination that would come out even more strongly on Axe's later productions for Capitol. Titles include "No Rollin Blues", "Big Fine Girl", "Good Rockin Tonight", "Ain't Nobody's Business", and "When I Been Drinkin". LP, Vinyl record album

New Four Brothers (Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, etc)Together Again ... CD
RCA/BMG (Germany), 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
How many different iterations of the "Four Brothers" were there? We don't know, but as near as we can tell, this grouping might most resemble the "original", with four West coast heavies joining forces for a swinging side. Originally making up the sax section of Woody Herman's Thundering Herd, Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Herbie Steward and Serge Chaloff are the brothers, and they're joined by fellow Herman alum Buddy Jones, plus Elliot Lawrence and Don Lamond in the rhythm section on this side for Vik. As you'd expect, the numbers are all West coast gems, by the likes of Cohn, Sims, Jimmy Giuffre, Gerry Mulligan and Manny Albam amongst others, and featuring the brothers blowing in a remarkably spry manner for such a heavyweight lineup. 10 tracks in all: "Four And One More", "So Blue", "The Swinging Door", 'Four In Hand", "A Quick One", 'Four Brothers", "Ten Years Later", "The Pretty One", "Aged In Wood" and "Here We Go Again".

New Jimmy GiuffreFour Brothers Sound ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing record by Jimmy Giuffre – one that he uses to replicate the "4 Brothers Sound" of the years when he played with Woody Herman as one of a group of four saxophonists blowing together – but done here by Jimmy himself on all 4 horns, using early overdubbing techniques that let him play four tenor sax parts at once! The sound is wonderful – filled with complex colors, tones, and changes you won't find on Giuffre's other albums of the time – and Jimmy's backed by usual trio-mates Brookmeyer and Jim Hall – with Brookmeyer on piano, swinging things a bit more than usual next to Hall's guitar. The 4-tenor frontline is wonderful, and titles include "Four Brothers", "Ode To Switzerland", "Space", "Blues In The Barn", and "Memphis In June". CD
