A seminal jazz funk session of the 70s – Herbie Hancock's legendary meeting with The Headhunters, and a killer batch of tunes that really gave the combo their name! Herbie's playing a wide range of keys here – including Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and Arp – but almost even better is the work from the rest of the group – including Bennie Maupin on soprano and tenor sax, Paul Jackson on bass, Harvey Mason on drums, and Bill Summers on percussion! The earthier elements of the rhythm players really keep Herbie on track – bringing him back to the planet from previous trips into space, and helping him hit an all-solid, all-righteous funky groove! Titles include a great remake of "Watermelon Man", the classic original recording of "Chameleon", and the cuts "Vein Melter" and "Sly" – all nice and long! (Original pressing. Cover has some wear and a mark from sticker removal.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Pretty Sound
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good
Don't be too put off by the title – which might make you think that the album's a bunch of flowery instrumentals – because it's actually a pretty strong set of tunes from trumpeter Joe Wilder, recorded with a bit of polish, to be sure, but in a way that lets him take the lead, solo-wise. ...

Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good
Slammin soundtrack to this bio-pic which starred Sal Mineo as Gene Krupa, and which features music by Krupa himself, plus Anita O'Day and Red Nichols. Pretty trad and swing all around – but there's a lot of great drum work by Krupa, particularly the type that often got featured in the live ... LP, Vinyl record album

While My Lady Sleeps
RCA, 1957. Very Good
A rare "with orchestra" outing from pianist Phineas Newborn – one that has his gentle keys out front of larger backings by Dennis Farnon – all cast in the kind of dreamy mode you might expect from the title! Yet while the whole thing's certainly got a late night feel, Newborn' ... LP, Vinyl record album

EmArcy, Mid 40s. Very Good
One of the few full albums issued under the name of alto saxophonist Willie Smith – easily one of our favorite players on the alto of his generation! Willie's got a warmly raspy tone that rarely gets presented this well – in an easygoing, laidback setting with plenty of space – ... LP, Vinyl record album

English Jazz
Bally, 1956. Very Good
Some of the earliest work as a leader from the swinging Johnny Keating – one of England's finest jazz arrangers of the 50s, working here in a looser style than on his classic Keating Sound albums from the 60s! The groove here is more small combo swinging – and Keating's working with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
