CD (Item 585870) Verve (Japan), 1966 — Condition: New Copy
Temporarily Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 5

A great little trad session – one that features laidback and soulful work from the great Johnny Hodges – working here in a quintet that includes Earl "Fatha" Hines on piano and organ, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Richard Davis on bass, and Joe Marshall on drums. The style is nothing fancy, but Hodges' tone on these mid 60s Verve sides is always right on the money – soulful but not overdone, and put forth with just the right amount of economy. Hines' work on organ is pretty darn nice too – and the set's a nice cooker that updates the older swing sound of Verve for the 60s, but still keeps the mellow and spontaneous feel of the 60s. Titles include "Tippin In", "Caution Blues", "Stride Right", "Rosetta", "Fantastic", "Perdido", and "Tale Of The Fox".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

You know, we've never been sure what they mean by "collates" in the title of this one – but we're guessing the title was chosen because of the way Johnny blows sheets and sheets of sweet sound together on alto sax! The recordings are in an Ellington mode, but taken to a small group ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1952. New Copy
Pure genius from Stan Getz – a set that's got an understated brilliance from the cover and title right down to the music in the grooves – and maybe one of the best-ever pairings of the tenor of Getz with the guitar of Jimmy Raney! The pair work here in a hip combo with Duke Jordan on ... CD
Bubble
Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy
A brilliant bubble of sounds from IPA – much more searing than you'd guess from the album's title – served up here in a sharp brace of trumpet, tenor, and vibes! The group's overflowing with that modernist Moserobie label energy we love so much – tight in construction, but still ... CD
