Forgive Roger Kellaway for all the other snoozy work he's ever done – because this album's a treasure! Kellaway's working with a jazz trio that includes drummer Dave Bailey – and the set's a hip one with a mix of straight soul jazz grooving and some more experimental twists that actually work. Best of these is the cut "Brats", a fantastic little number that's sort of a waltz for "prepared piano", ala John Cage! The cut has a sound that's amazing – eerie, haunting, but also swinging in a very strange way. That track's worth the price of the album alone – but there's other nice numbers like "Organ Morgan", "One Night Stand", "Can't You See It", and "Signa: ON".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Down Home Piano
Prestige/OJC, 1958. New Copy
CD...$3.99 11.98
An all-instrumental set from Mose Allison – one that drops out his familiar jazz vocals, and really brings a nice focus to his energy on the keys of the piano! Given that Mose really got his start as a sideman in other combos during the 50s, the selection's no surprise – and if you've ... CD
Jaws In Orbit
Prestige/OJC, 1959. New Copy
CD...$4.99 11.98
Eddie Lockjaw Davis swings way out here – working in that cool cooking mode from the 50s, with organist Shirley Scott a very important partner on the date! The group's got a larger sound than usual – thanks to the addition of trombonist Steve Pullman – a player we don't know much ... CD
Prestige, 1968/1969. New Copy
CD...$4.99 18.98
Two rare albums from one of the greatest modern pianists ever! Jaki Byard With Strings is a wonderful album – and nothing like any other "with strings" album you've ever heard! Sure, the set does have some stringed instruments in the group – but it's a small combo session ... CD
Brother Red
Prestige, 1964. New Copy
CD...$3.99 11.98
Nice double-length CD that brings together tuff soul jazz tenor tracks culled from some mid 60s sessions that Red Holloway cut with Brother Jack McDuff. Some of the tracks appeared on the albums Cookin' Together and The Dynamic Jack McDuff, and the material is a mix of quartet sides and larger ... CD
Tuba Sounds
Prestige (Japan), 1957. New Copy
Think what you want about the tuba – Ray Draper is an incredible talent, and probably the only individual to make the instrument work in jazz! Draper played with both John Coltrane and Jackie McLean during the late 50s – and this rare album features him leading a group with McLean on ... CD
Two Trumpets
Prestige (Japan), 1956. New Copy
Two trumpets, and plenty of soul – one of those wonderful late 50s Prestige Records blowing sessions that really let individual players have lots of the right sort of space to find their own voice alongside each other! Byrd and Farmer are both young here, and mighty sharp in their sounds ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1954. New Copy
A pretty great live set by Billy Taylor and his early trio with Earl May on bass and Percy Brice on drums – recorded at Town Hall in 1954! Taylor is actually pretty darn amazing on the set – very much the virtuoso, playing with an incredible range and an almost modern approach to the ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1954. New Copy
James Moody here – working with his excellent band of the mid 50s, in a set that really showcases all his great tones and styles! Moody plays both tenor and alto on the set – amidst Quincy Jones arrangements that make the slightly larger group swing with the punch of a small combo ... CD
Back Country Suite
Prestige (Japan), 1957. New Copy
A rare early Mose Allison album – a mostly-instrumental outing that focuses on Allison's wonderful talents on the piano – already honed by this time through participation in a number of key sessions with other leaders! Side one of the album features the beautiful "Back Country ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1957. New Copy
A great early trio session from Ray Bryant – the kind of record that instantly shows why he caught such fire on the scene! There's a simplicity here that's almost invisible – a command of the keys that's strong, but not nearly as show-offy as some of Bryant's contemporaries. And given ... CD
Prestige, Late 50s. New Copy
CD...$4.99 11.98
A nice, cooking bop side, led by Red Garland and featuring 'Trane at his late 50s best, when he was moving between playing with the top East coast talents of the day, and playing with a ferocity that betrayed the direction he'd later take when he got really out. Donald Byrd's also in the frontline ... CD
Prestige, 1972. New Copy
CD...$4.99 18.98
2 sides of sweet electric grooving from Houston Person – records that feature his soulful tenor set in larger arrangements than on his earlier small combo Prestige sessions, in a mode that's a bit like some of the larger jazz sets coming out on CTI and Kudu at the time! Like Stanley ... CD
