Zamboni 22

CD (Item 49939) Rearward/Schema (Italy), 1960 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.60 5

Heavily grooving Italian jazz from 1960 – featuring the piano of Amedo Tommasi, and the twin-horn team of Cicci Santucci and Enzo Scoppa! Santucci plays trumpet and Scoppa plays tenor, and together, the pair were one of the tightest front lines working south of the Alps. We've stocked sets that include some of their funky work from the 70s – but this little gem is a rare early appearance in a straight bop mode, grooving nicely all the way through with the soulfulness of a rare side on Blue Note or Prestige from the same time! Titles include "Mulatto", "Zamboni 22", "Ballad For Micheline", "Coltrane", and "Auto Strada Del Sole".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Viaggio Stellare
Schema (Italy), 2013. New Copy
A great little combo with a mighty sharp sound – one that's already topped by very soulful tenor and soprano sax from leader Alessandro Scala – but which also features some great guest trumpet from Fabrizio Bosso as well! The group's got all the sharp changes and strong sense of rhythm ... CD

Rearward (Italy), 1965. New Copy
A brilliant recording by a small combo from the larger big band of drummer Kenny Clarke and pianist Francy Boland – and a great illustration of the driving, soulful sound the group always had at its core! The combo here features some of the most important members of the bigger unit – ... CD

Rearward (Italy), 1967. New Copy
One of the few small group recordings ever cut by pianist Francy Boland – and a set that cooks every bit as much as his work with the larger Clarke Boland Big Band on MPS! The reason for the cooking is clear – Francy's got key rhythmic help from group members Jimmy Woode on bass and ... CD

Off Limits
Rearward (Italy), 1970. New Copy
Easily the hippest of the Clarke-Boland Big Band Records from the classic years – a set of hard grooving tracks that really pushes the envelope of their style! There's a few elements here that are different than usual – such as the presence of electric piano on a few tracks, which ... CD

High Contrast
Verve/Higher Plane, 1970. New Copy
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in ... CD

Dolphin
Concord (Japan), 1981. New Copy
One of the best later moments from the great Stan Getz – a set we might even place on the same level as his 60s work for Verve – and certainly at the same par as his records in the 70s for Columbia! Yet this set is quite different than that latter batch – as it has Getz really ... CD

Telephone
Concord (Japan), 1984. New Copy
Guitarist Jim Hall is a player who's always realized he sounds best in a small, intimate setting – whether in his 50s trio recordings with Jimmy Giuffre, or his 60s classics with Bill Hall, or his 70s experiments with bassist Ron Carter – and this live date for Concord really revives ... CD

Sleepwalk
Warner (Japan), 1982. New Copy
A real gem from guitarist Larry Carlton – a set that's very jazzy, but which also shows the strong focus he'd developed on his rock session work in the 70s – including some famous recordings with Steely Dan! There's a sharpness to Carlton's guitar that cuts through some of the sleepier ... CD

Seven Come Seven
Concord (Japan), 1973. New Copy
The Concord label gave guitarist Herb Ellis some of his greatest moments of the 70s – like this early cooker with guitarist Joe Pass – recorded live at the Concord Jazz Festival that gave the label its name! The 1973 performance has both players really opening up – never ... CD

Jones Brown Smith
Concord (Japan), 1976. New Copy
Not the normal trio set you might expect – because on half the tracks, Hank Jones plays Fender Rhodes – which makes for a very different sound than usual! The record nicely alternates between Jones on acoustic and electric – and Hank manages to give some of the Rhodes tracks this ... CD

Finesse
Concord (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A wonderfully intimate set from pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi – quite different than her bigger band records of the 70s, but equally great in its own way! The album's a great throwback to the earliest days of Akiyoshi on record – as it has the pianist really opening up in a trio setting, ... CD

Reminiscence – Live
Wide Hive, Early 2000s. New Copy
CD...$9.99 13.99
A great title for this one – given that the music here is right up there with the best Phil Ranelin recordings of the 70s! That likeness is no surprise, though – given that the group here is Phil's Tribe Renaissance ensemble – a lineup of players put together to recreate the ... CD
