LP (Item 3335) Roulette, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

Great stuff! This fantastic lost John Handy album for Roulette, like his others, stands as some of the finest unknown jazz of the 60's. These records are always (unfortunately) passed by in the racks, but don't make the same mistake! Handy's alto is honed to a razor sharp point, fresh from his work with Mingus, and the writing and playing is at a level that he (and few other alto players) ever reached again. A young Walter Bishop plays piano, and the cuts include "No Coast", "Boo's Ups & Downs", and "Quote, Unquote". (Cover has light wear & a promo stamp.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Basie Plays Hefti
Roulette, Late 50s. Very Good
Tremendous work from one of the greatest pairings in 50s jazz – the crack later group of Count Basie and the amazing arranging talents of the great Neal Hefti! Hefti later went onto greater fame as a 60s soundtrack composer, but back in the day him and Basie were an incredible team together ... LP, Vinyl record album

Matadores Meet The Bull
Roulette, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A strange one for Sonny Stitt – but also a real gem! The album has Sonny, who'd been working for the Roost/Roulette label, coming together with other jazz players in the same boat, plus Latin musicians who were recording for the related Tico label. Moishe Levy never made such a good talent ... LP, Vinyl record album
