Phil Woods, Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, & OthersDirectly From The Half Note ... CD
Philology (Italy), 1965/1966. Used ... $13.99
Freewheeling live work from the legendary Half Note club in New York – two different dates recorded in the 60s, both with really great sound! First up is a 1966 performance that has Phil Woods on alto, Al Cohn on tenor, Dave Frishberg on piano, and Jimmy Rushing doing a bit of guest vocals on a few tracks. The best moments are the instrumental ones – as Woods gets in some especially great licks on alto, and Cohn's tenor nicely follows suit – on long versions of "Yardbird Suite" and "It's A Wonderful World". Vocal numbers include "Deed I Do", and "I Want A Little Girl". Next is a 1965 session with triple tenors from Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, and Richie Kamuca – starting out with long instrumental numbers that have plenty of room for individual solos – on "Broadway" and "Tickle Toe". Jimmy Rushing comes back on vocals for some shorter numbers – including "Every Day I Have The Blues" and "Sent For You Yesterday". CD

New Four Brothers (Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, etc)Together Again ... LP
Vik, 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Vik pressing, with deep groove. Cover has light wear, a mostly split top seam, a bit of splitting on the spine, and some stains on the back.)

New Stan GetzBrothers ... LP
Prestige, 1949/1952. Very Good ... $6.99
A classic Prestige LP that compiles earlier sides by Getz – four tunes from a 1949 session recorded under Stan Getz & His Four Brothers, with Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Allen Eager, and Brew Moore – all blowing with Getz in a real "brothers-like" sax section sound. The remaining 4 tracks feature Stan and Al Cohn, working in a 1952 session with Geroge Wallington and Kai Winding – on some nice light boppish tracks that have that sweet smooth Getz tone firmly in place. The album's got a great Don Martin cover, and titles include "Battleground", "Five Brothers", "Four & One Moore", "Red Door", and "Zoot Case". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

New Saxes IncSaxes Inc ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A concept album, but one with a really great approach – a heady group of top-shelf saxophonists from the end of the 50s – all coming together in surprisingly tight formation, yet also getting a bit of solo space as well! The project is headed by arranger Bob Prince – who's got a great ear for letting the ensemble step out at the start, then lay back just slightly to let some of the genius talents on the set get a few licks in – a mighty lineup that includes Coleman Hawkins, Herb Geller, Phil Woods, Gene Quill, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Seldon Powell, Hal McKusick, and Georgie Auld. Things are a lot less gimmicky than you'd expect – and the album's a great meeting of older large group modes and some of the best modern inflections of the time. Titles include "Four Brothers", "The Gypsy", "Night In Tunisia", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "Axmobile". CD
