Jazz In Paris – Mai 1956

Excellent Parisian work by Lionel Hampton – recorded during a very fruitful year in France, featuring material that was originally issued on a full LP, and a 10" ep. Most of the tracks feature a group that includes Eddie Chamblee on tenor, Ed Mullens on trumpet, Billy Mackel on guitar, and Jean-Claude Pelletier on piano – even though Hamp plays piano too, as well as his standard vibes, and even manages to sing a bit too! Tracks have a long, open-ended groove – similar to his best jamming 50s work from the US – and titles include "Regina's Drag", "Blues For Monique", "Jammin On High Society", and "Lullaby Of Birdland".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Shadow Do
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A key early pairing of saxophonist Gary Bartz and producer Larry Mizell – working here together before their more famous collaboration on Capitol Records, in a sound that's even more freewheeling and open-ended! Bartz still has a bit of an edge in his horn here – the style laid down ... CD

Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy
One of the most hard-wailing albums that Harold Mabern ever cut – a bit of a shift from some of his more lyrical modes, and a soul jazz smoker that's almost in a Prestige jazz funk mode! The combo here is great, and a bit of a shift for Harold – with Lee Morgan on trumpet, Hubert Laws ... CD

Got To Get Your Own
Cadet/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Monster funk from Hammond hero Reuben Wilson – an album of hard-burning, bad-walking tunes that are a fair bit different than most of his other work! Although Wilson recorded some pretty traditional organ jazz for the Blue Note and Groove Merchant labels, this album has him working with his ... CD

Prestige/Universal (Germany), 1961/1962. New Copy
A pair of overlooked gems from trumpeter Clark Terry – back to back on a single CD! On Everything's Mellow, things are mellow indeed – and that fact makes the record one of Terry's greatest from the 60s! The obscure session features Clark blowing in the laidback style of Prestige's ... CD

Seeker
Sunnyside, 2014. New Copy
Tremendous work from Azar Lawrence – part of a great return to form the reedman has had in recent years – and, if anything, a run of music that's maybe even greater than his legendary sides from the 70s! Lawrence is razor-sharp throughout – spinning out bold, soulful lines on ... CD

Tappan Zee/Robinsongs (UK), 1980/1981. New Copy
Early 80s Bob James back to back – two very big albums on a single CD! H has a cover that might be a bit gimmicky – with a giant image of a hot dog – but the album's actually one of the more sensitive outings from keyboardist Bob James at the time – a really refreshing ... CD

Far Away Lands
Blue Note (Japan), 1967. New Copy
A real treasure from the great tenorist Hank Mobley – and a record that shows him really opening up his sound in his later years at Blue Note! The album's got some key rhythmic elements that come both from the drumming of Billy Higgins and piano of Cedar Walton – both players who bring ... CD

Rajah
Blue Note (Japan), 1966. New Copy
One of our favorite albums ever from the legendary trumpeter Lee Morgan – a set that Blue Note recorded in the mid 60s, but didn't show the world until almost two decades later! The album's got Lee as his lyrical best – working almost with a sense of exoticism, especially on the ... CD
