LP (Item 3335) Roulette, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
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.

Interesting sides from Bud Powell – billed on the front as "his first new recordings since 1958", which isn't really the case, since he did cut some work while living in Paris. And even more interesting, the liner notes describe Powell as "back on the US jazz scene, cured of ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Illinois Jacquet Flies Again
Roulette, 1959. Very Good
A really beautiful set, recorded after Jacquet's Verve years, and one that features his tenor blowing easily and soulfully over some larger arrangements with a mellow late night sound. We don't mean to imply that the album's a sleepy one, though – just that it's got this great relaxed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Honky Tonk A-La Mod!
Roulette, 1966. Very Good+
The soulful Hammond of Bill Doggett gets a sweet shift for the 60s – hitting a mod jazz mode that Bill no doubt inspired by his groundbreaking work of the 50s! The groove here is nicely snapping – in a space between soul instrumental work and jazz, with lots of tight guitar from Billy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prelude
Prestige, 1964. Very Good-
Soul jazz organ with big band? It's been done – and never better than on this set – which features Brother Jack's classic quartet – with George Benson, Red Hollway, and Joe Dukes – next to the the screamin' orchestrations of a hip Benny Golson! Golson leads a crack band ... LP, Vinyl record album
