Jazz In Paris – Mai 1956

CD (Item 45030) Universal (France), 1956 — Condition: New Copy

CD


4.50 5

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

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

Child's Dance
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Seminal Art Blakey material from the early 70s – a real change from his 60s vibe on Blue Note, in a style that really opens up to a host of more spiritual touches! The album's a counterpart to the classic Buhania set, also issued on Prestige at the time – and like that record, this one ... 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

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

Sentiments
Storyville/SeriE.WOC (Italy), 1971. New Copy
One of the coolest, most compelling albums we've ever heard from reedman Sahib Shihab – and that's saying a lot, given how much we love all his other music! This rare gem's got a very exotic feel –explained by Shihab in the notes as coming from a Tunisian influence on the leadoff track ... CD

Mal Waldron Trio
Karim/SeriE.WOC (Italy), 1966. New Copy
One of the rarest Mal Waldron albums of the 60s – and one of the best, as well – an obscure trio date recorded in Italy, filled with original compositions, and a great link between Mal's hardbop work of the 50s and his freer sounds to come! There's a nice sense of darkness throughout ... CD
