Red Garland with John ColtraneSoul Junction ... LP
Prestige/OJC, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... Around August 5, 2014
Soul Junction's a great title for this one – because the album's a great meeting point between 50s hard bop and some of the looser, earthier styles that were beginning to show up in the first years of soul jazz! The title track of this one is worth the price of admission alone – as Red ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Fantasy/OJC, 1958. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A 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 ... (Jazz) read more CD

Dizzy's Big 4 here are a quartet of players that includes Ray Brown on bass, Joe Pass on guitar, and Mickey Roker on drums – all of whom work with Dizzy in a lightly skipping groove that's a nice contrast to some of his other 70s work! The style certainly has some of the spacious qualities ... (Jazz) read more CD

A real heavy-hitter – one of the few albums of hardbop that Gryce cut for Prestige, done in a more relaxed, more soulful, more down-n-dirty style than some of his more arranged work from the 50s.
