Woody HermanDouble Exposure ... LP
Chess/Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $0.99
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 HermanHerd At Montreux ... LP
Fantasy, 1974. Near Mint- ... $1.99
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 HermanJazz The Utmost ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
One of Woody's nice ones for Verve – with arrangements by Nat Pierce, Al Cohn, Neal Hefti, and Ralph Burns, and a good 50s updating of Woody's classic sound. A few tracks have vocals, and players include Bill Perkins, Dick Collins, Cy Touff, Urbie Green, and Stu Williamson. Titles include "Beau Jazz", "Moody", "Mess Around", and "Buck Dance". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has a bit of splitting on the top seam and some light stains.)

Woody HermanLight My Fire ... LP
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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
(Orange label pressing. Cover has ringwear, a sticker in one corner and a cutout notch.)

Fantasy, 1972. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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
(Cover has some wear, a promo ink stamp, and a bit of pencil on back.)

Woody HermanWoody ... LP
Cadet, 1970. Very Good ... $0.99
The most obscure of Woody's albums for Cadet – and a bit different than the other two! The album still features one side of upbeat groovy tunes – recorded with Richard Evans in a style that's a mix of big band funk and Cadet Records soul – and which show Woody to be a lot hipper than anyone might have thought at the time – putting together some amazing arrangements of tunes that soar with great power, still very jazzy, but also filled with a youthful energy that's really great. Includes a great version of "How Can I Be Sure", plus cool originals like "Smiling Phases", "A Stone Called Person", and "Saccharine Sally". The difference here, though, is that some of the tunes also have some vocals by Woody – sounding pretty cool, actually, and almost spoken – and that one side of the record is dominated by a long version of "Blues In The Night", with a solo by Tom Harrell.

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.)

Jimmy GiuffreFour Brothers Sound ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good ... $39.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)

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

New 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
(Yellow label pressing with an ink stamp. Cover has light wear and a bit of pen on the back.)

New ChaseChase ... CD
Epic/One Way, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The debut album from Chase – one of the hippest jazz rock combos of the 70s! The self-titled Chase album first burned onto the market in 1971 – and it's a great distillation of a groove that was bubbling around in various other segments at the time – some of the tighter big band rhythms of the late 60s, as you might find in the work of Maynard Ferguson or Woody Herman – mixed with the hipper rhythms from the rockish underground, particularly in the work of Blood Sweat & Tears or Chicago. Chase is a fair bit jazzier than both of those groups – as they often put the horns more upfront than the vocals – although most numbers do have some sort of vocals as well. Instrumentation is heavy on trumpets – which come together in blasting, blaring groove, even despite the smaller size of the combo – and Phil Porter lays down some great keyboard lines that really help some of the best tracks cook nicely. Titles include "Handbags & Gladrags", "Livin In Heat", "Open Up Wide", "Hello Groceries", "Boys & Girls Together", and "Invitation To A River". CD
