Early 50s greatness from Charlie Mariano for Prestige – sessions that are mostly done in an octet format – wonderful stuff that we'd rank right up there with some of his best work of the decade! This 10-inch LP is subtitled New Sounds From Boston – which is quite appropriate – as the soulfulness of the solos and the overall arrangements sound a good half-decade ahead of their time! Charlie's solos are terrific, but he's a generous leader – with plenty of space for standout moments by a group that features Joe Gordon on trumpet, Sonny Truitt on trombone, Jim Clark on tenor, George Myers on baritone, Glenn Glennon on drums, Jack Lawlor on bass, and Roy Frazee on piano. Includes 2 sessions masters each of Mariano's own "Boston Uncommon" and "The Wizard" – plus "Tzoris" and "Autumn In New York". Also includes "Mariners" and "Aviary" – the former in a sextet setting and the latter a quintet.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

For The Good Times
Prestige, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of Rusty Bryant's last albums for Prestige – recorded in that more-electric mode that graced the label's albums of the year 1973 – but in a style that's still pretty darn nice! The group's still a small combo – with Rusy on tenor and alto, plus with Hank Jones on electric ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A richly soulful album from tenor giant Rusty Bryant – and a set that mixes his older Prestige Records mode with the larger electric styles of the CTI generation! The group's bigger than on most of Bryant's other records of the time – some larger charts arranged by Horace Ott, who had ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige/OJC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)
Searing live work from Eric Dolphy – part of a series of recordings that set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The record features Dolphy going even farther out than on his studio sides from the time – as the record features very long tracks performed by a crack group that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Groove Street
Prestige, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
A very tight early session by the great organist Larry Young! The album's quite different than Young's later Blue Note work – more in-the-pocket soul jazz, but filled with the expansive sensibility that would later have him take off for the heavens. The biggest example of this tendency is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige/OJC, 1956. New Copy (reissue)
One of the four essential quintet sides Miles Davis cut for Prestige in the mid 50s – all modern jazz classics by anyone's measure, along with Steamin', Relaxin' and Cookin'. These quintet sides established Davis and John Coltrane as a significant force to be reckoned with, and helped set ... LP, Vinyl record album
What It Is
Prestige, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Killer funkiness from Boogaloo Joe Jones! Grover Washington Jr makes an incredible appearance here – sounding much harder and heavier than on some of his Kudu recordings – more of a gritty soul jazz player, working beautifully alongside the sharp guitar of Boogaloo Joe Jones, and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dig
Prestige/OJC, 1951. New Copy (reissue)
A key early appearance on record by Sonny Rollins – recorded here with Miles Davis and Jackie McLean in the landmark Dig session! The album's the stuff that 50s bop dreams are made of – a session that has up-and-coming modernists working in the new freedom of the long playing record, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1965. New Copy
A brilliant statement of modernist jazz from Sam Rivers – one of his groundbreaking early albums for Blue Note, and one of the most challenging sessions issued by the label during the 60s! The record's a real departure from Rivers' already-great Fuscia Swing Song – with tunes that go ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1963. New Copy
A stellar set from one of the most underrated reed players of all time – a brilliant bit of searching soul jazz, cut at a time when Curtis Amy was leaving behind his Texas roots for the new sounds of the Coltrane generation! The album's quite different than the organ and tenor dates that Amy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A fantastic mid 60s album from Grant Green – but one that never got its due originally, because it was unreleased at the time – and didn't come out until a Japanese version in the late 70s! Despite that oddly long gap, Matador is truly one Grant's best ever records – a really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)
A wonderful session by Andrew Hill – recorded in 1968, but issued only briefly in 1981 – and out of print for years! The session is a key one in understanding Hill's work – as it's a bridge between the arch modernism of his early Blue Note sides, and the more soul-oriented ... LP, Vinyl record album
Generation
Vistone/Tramp (Germany), 1994. New Copy
The last album ever recorded by funky drummer Roy Porter – and a really unique set that seeks to combine his older grooves from the 70s with contemporary elements from the 90s hip hp scene! The approach is a lot better than you might expect, and has lots of the best true school elements ... LP, Vinyl record album
