Joe BeckNature Boy ... LP
Verve/Forecast, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A cool little album from Joe Beck – very different than most of his other work! Although Beck's best known for his guitar work on funky 70s jazz records, this early album has him working in a mixture of rock, jazz, and folk styles – all cast in the hipster mode of Verve's Forecast imprint. There's a few funk tunes on here, but the best numbers are stretched out trippy ones that bring together jazz and folk, in a floating "folk funk experience" sound that we totally love, perfect for the generation of Tim Hardin and Nick Drake. Beck sings on some cuts, and others are instrumental. Titles include "Ain't No Use Talkin", "Goodbye LA", "Please Believe Me", "Let Me Go", "Come Back: Visions Without You", and "Spoon's Caress".

Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of Larry Coryell's greatest albums ever! Barefoot Boy is a much more expansive session than some of Coryell's others, fueled in part by the spiritual intensity of the Impulse Records generation. It's got a momentum that's pretty darn exciting throughout – but the compositions are nice and long, which gives the players plenty of space to explore. Personnel includes Steve Marcus on tenor and soprano sax, Mike Mandel on piano, Roy Haynes on drums, and Larry Killian on congas – working with Coryell on long trippy tracks that remind us a bit of 60s work by Chico Hamilton, Charles Lloyd, and Gabor Szabo. Titles include "Call To The Higher Consciousness", "The Great Escape", and "Gypsy Queen". CD

✨✧ Art BlakeyGolden Boy ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure Jazz Messengers session – but a great one! The album is ostensibly a set of jazz versions of tunes from the musical Golden Boy, and the group this time is a larger one than usual – a total of 10 players, led by Blakey – and playing beautifully over arrangements from Wayne Shorter, Curtis Fuller, and Cedar Walton! The style's not any sort of clunky "jazz meets Broadway" mode, though – as the care taken by the artists involved help elevate the tunes, and the performance, to a whole new soulful level – hardly what you'd expect! The group features trumpet work from Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard, tenor from Wayne Shorter, alto from James Spaulding, trombone from Curtis Fuller, baritone from Charles Davis, piano from Cedar Walton, and bass from Reggie Workman – all very hip cats, working here with the same sort of large group textures you might hear on Freddie Hubbard's Body & Soul album from the same time, mixed with some more traditionally Blakey-led moments. Titles include "Yes I Can", "Theme From Golden Boy", "Lorna's Here", "This is The Life", and "There's A Party". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jackie McLeanNature Boy ... CD
Blue Note, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very nice recent album by Jackie, featuring a stripped-down lineup that includes Cedar Walton on piano and Billy Higgins on drums, joining Jackie in a haunting set of mellow ballads. After years of playing, Jackie's tone is impeccable, and it's great to hear him work through a set of standards like the ones on this album – "Star Eyes", "Nature Boy", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", and "You Don't Know What Love Is". Sure, the album's not as groundbreaking as some of Jackie's 60s new thing records, or 70s spiritual sessions, but it's still a nice treat, and has a surprisingly compelling edge to it. CD

✨✧ Vince GuaraldiBoy Named Charlie Brown – Original TV Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fantasy, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Vince Guaraldi's wonderful music for the first-ever cartoon to feature the Peanuts characters in animated form – a sublime batch of jazz instrumentals that forever changed the face of music in shows of this nature! Vince steps out with an amazing sound right from the start – even different than his previous jazz records from the San Francisco scene – with a more careful balance of swing and sadness, lyricism and soul – always played in a subtle, understated way that really makes the music come through with a lasting degree of power. Core sounds are from the trio of Guaraldi on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Colin Bailey on drums – and titles include key early versions of the "Charlie Brown Theme" and "Linus & Lucy" – plus "Oh Good Grief", Pebble Beach", "Schroeder", and "Blue Charlie Brown". CD features two bonus tracks – "Baseball Theme (alt)" and "Fly Me To The Moon". CD

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Live! ... LP
Capitol, 1964. Very Good ... $6.99
Cannonball Adderley with David Axelrod production – a combination that couldn't miss back in the 60s! In keeping with the success of the Mercy Mercy Mercy album done with Axelrod, Capitol did everything they could to catch Cannonball in a live setting – a great move, given the open, soulful energy his group had in the format – crowd-pleasing, but always plenty darn creative too! Added to the mix here is some nice production by David Axelrod, capturing all the right moments in all the right ways – especially when Joe Zawinul steps up to take some sweet solos on the keys – and the great Charles Lloyd serves up some mighty nice work on flute and tenor sax. Other players include Nat Adderley on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and titles include "The Song My Lady Sings", "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Work Song", and "Sweet Georgia Bright".

Count Basie & OthersToo Marvelous For Words ... CD
Vanguard, Late 50s. Used ... $3.99
Plenty marvelous work from Count Basie and a whole host of longtime associates – all pulled from 50s records for the Vanguard label, most of which weren't done under Basie's leadership, but were headed by drummer Jo Jones, trumpeter Buck Clayton, and singer Joe Williams! Other players include Freddie Green on guitar, Lucky Thompson on tenor, Earl Warren on alto sax, Emmett Berry on trumpet, and Marlowe Morris on organ – and oddly, Basie doesn't even appear to be on all the tracks. That's ok with us, though – because often, small group sessions by Basie sidemen could be even more interesting than their bigger band work – as you'll hear on titles that include "Caravan", "Splittin", "Squeeze Me", "Buck Huckles", "Georgia Mae", "Lover Man", and "Shoe Shine Boy".

George BensonShape Of Things To Come ... LP
CTI/A&M, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
Excellent funky George Benson – mellow grooving, never too over the top, but with a fantastic mellow groove that really points the way ahead to the CTI sound of the 70s! We'd dare say that this is Benson's best from the early solo years of the late 60s – and the record's got a groove that's at once complicated and appealingly funky! No wonder too, since he's got Idris Muhammad helping him out, working under his pre-conversion name of Leo Morris, plus Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Richard Davis, Johnny Pacheco and others. Titles include "Footin It", "Face It Boy, It's Over", "Shape Of Things To Come", and "Shape Of Things That Are & Were". LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneJohn Coltrane Quartet Plays ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... $44.99
Modal Coltrane at its finest – a record that almost returns the great one to the territory explored at the end of his years at Atlantic Records, but which still incorporates all of the new ideas learned afterwards! The album's actually one of the straightest that John Coltrane cut after 1964 – and it features 4 long, beautiful tracks that soar with rhythms from McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – topped with searing, searching work on tenor and soprano sax from Coltrane! Titles include one of the greatest readings of "Chim Chim Cheree" we've ever heard – a version that remakes the tune almost as a part 2 of "My Favorite Things" – and other titles include "Song of Praise", the classic "Nature Boy" and "Brazilia".

Henri CrollaJazz In Paris – Begin The Beguine ... CD
Universal (France), 1955. Used ... $4.99
Short swing based tracks recorded by French guitarist Henri Crolla in the mid 50s – originally issued on one LP and 2 45 rpm eps, and lovingly repackaged here with full notes, in a set that includes 16 tracks in all. About half the tracks feature vibes work by George Daly and piano by Georges Arvanitas – and some of the other tracks feature a young Martial Solal on piano, recording under the nom-de-date of Lalos Bing. Titles include "Sonny Boy", "Begin The Beguine", "If I Loved You", "Alembert's", "The Continental", "If I Had You", "Stardust", and "All The Things You Are". CD

Miles DavisBlue Moods ... CD
Debut/OJC, 1955. Used ... $6.99
An odd little session for Miles Davis – playing here with a great group, but one that's made up of musicians who are all uncommon sidemen for him, even at this early point in his career! Britt Woodman (a nom-du-date?) is on trombone, and Charles Mingus and Elvin Jones are in the rhythm section – plus Teddy Charles' vibes where you might expect a piano. As you might guess from the title and instrumentation, the set has more to do with Miles' more contemplative explorations of the time – his "blue moods" – than his more upbeat boppish styles, but that's where Charles' vibes come in and really make the set a great one. The group runs through a nice set of laidback, cool renditions of the tunes "Nature Boy", "Alone Together", "There's No You" and "Easy Living" – all done in nice longer takes! CD

Miles DavisMiles Smiles (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1966. Used ... $9.99
Miles Smiles, but his grin is a wry one – given the angular energy of the set! The album's a landmark effort from the mid 60s quintet that includes Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – all of whom work without fail to capture Davis' newly emerging approach to jazz – a style that's touched with some of the light lyricism of the late 50s, but which has much sharper edges overall – and really approaches some of the best "new thing" modes that were going down at labels like Blue Note or Impulse! Many tunes have a subtly spare quality, but nonetheless work with a tremendous amount of power – and titles include a classic version of "Freedom Jazz Dance", a haunting take on Shorter's "Footprints", and the titles "Orbits", "Circle", "Dolores", and "Gingerbread Boy".

Dragon (Sweden), 1956. Used ... $9.99
Trumpeter Rolf Ericson at the height of his 50s powers – recording here in his homeland of Sweden, but with a great batch of American guests – including the lovely Ernestine Anderson on vocals! The material was recorded in 1956, and all of it is previously unissued – and Ericson plays with two different groups, one that features Cecil Payne on baritone, Duke Jordan on piano, and Art Taylor on drums – and another with Lars Gullin on baritone, Freddie Redd on piano, and Tommy Potter on bass! Anderson sings "You Go To My Head" with the first group, and the numbers "Looking For A Boy", "Lover Man", "A Foggy Day", "I Got It Bad", and "Love For Sale" with the second. Instrumental titles include "Half Nelson", "Night In Tunisia", "Forecast", "Vacker Flicka", "Dig", and "I'll Remember April". CD

Kessel plays in a quartet with another guitar, on the tracks "Crazy Rhythm", "East Of The Sun", "All the Things You Are", and "Heat Wave". Rounding out the set is Moore, who plays in a rootsier sound, with Carl Perkins on piano, on the tracks "Oscar's Blues", "Sonny Boy", "Beautiful Moons Ago", and "A Foggy Day". With a David Stone Martin cover, too. LP, Vinyl record album

Chris ForemanNow Is The Time ... CD
Sirens, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
The first-ever album from organist Chris Foreman as a leader – a Hammond hero who's been making great music for a number of years, and really steps out strongly here on his debut! The album's got a fresh approach from the usual organ jazz outing – in that Foreman plays solo on a number of tracks, but really stuns us with the simultaneous deftness of both his work on the pedals and the keys of the Hammond, and throws us a nice curve ball when he also plays a bit of piano alongside the organ too. Andy Brown joins in on guitar for four of the album's eight tracks – and the last number features alto sax from Diane Ellis. Titles include "Lil Darlin", "Shake A Hand", "Lonely Avenue", "Doggone", "Cotton Boy Blues", and "The Peeper". CD

Gutsy tenor work from Jimmy Forrest – a player who was poised to rival Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons at the start of the 60s, and who could have easily done so, given the strength of his work for Prestige! The record's one of a few that the St Louis player got to cut for the label – and it's a tightly-crafted combo effort that features Hugh Lawson on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Clarendon Johnson on drums – plus a bit of added conga from Ray Barretto, bringing in that extra "kick" that pushed off other great soul jazz sessions from the time! Tracks are short, and have a good focus on Forrest's wonderful tone – and titles include "Sonny Boy", "Annie Laurie", "I Love You", "Most Much", "Soft Winds", "Matilda", and "Autumn Leaves". CD

Epic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An album of drum-heavy tracks recorded by drummer Panama Francis – who at this point could boast a long career working with jazz luminaries like Duke Ellington, Lucky Millinder, and Cab Calloway. The set's got Francis using his drums to cook up a rock-like beat on a set of instrumentals. Most of the cuts have a honking sax or other instrument up front to create that "rock and roll" groove – but the best numbers feature Francis' drums in a more unfettered setting. Titles include "Exploding Drums", "Hit The Road Jack", "Panama The Drummer Boy", and "Sticks & Stones". LP, Vinyl record album

Red GarlandSwingin On The Korner – Live At Keystone Korner (3LP set) ... LP
Resonance, 1977. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $36.99 38.99
Never-heard music from pianist Red Garland – working here with a unique trio that features Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – a lineup that only existed for this one set of performances from 1977! The material is great – maybe better than most Garland albums issued at the time – and the tracks were recorded with great care at the Keystone Korner club in San Francisco – at a level that's similar to the best Fantasy Records live dates from the venue, which were often like this album – a great chance for the artist to really stretch out and do something new! Garland still has that fluid, lyrical sensibility we love in his famous 50s sides – but there's also a much richer, more sophisticated approach to the piano as well – an even deeper sense of tonal color that comes through on the album's long tracks. Jones is great too – increasingly complex during these years, as you'd hear on his own recordings – and a great accompaniment to Red's new modes of expression. The whole thing presents 150 minutes of unreleased music, plus some great notes and photos too – and titles include "Love For Sale", "Billy Boy", "Blues In Bebop", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Bag's Groove", "On A Clear Day", "Straight No Chaser", "Autumn Leaves", and even a version of "The Christmas Song" (since the material was recorded a few weeks before Christmas!)

An incredibly haunting session that has Stan's edgey alto fronting some of Russ Garcia's arch-modernist string arrangements – similar to those that he contributed to other Verve albums of the same style. Getz maintains a wonderfully breathy tone that floats above the orchestrations, and the album's a real winner that shows a side of Stan that wasn't always captured by Verve. Titles include "Round Midnight", "Nature Boy", "It Never Entered My Mind", and "Early Autumn". LP, Vinyl record album

Chico HamiltonFurther Adventures Of El Chico ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
Massively groovy work from Chico Hamilton – one of his standout swingers for Impulse Records in the 60s, and a set that really showcases all the changes in music he'd made for the decade! The set features some wonderful reed work from Jerome Richardson and Charlie Mariano, plus some especially great guitar from Gabor Szabo – a player who was rising to fame in Hamilton's group, but also stands out here with lots of the breezy grooves he'd bring to his own dates for Impulse. Tracks are short, but in a good way that really keeps them focused – and other players who complete the groove include Clark Terry on trumpet and Ron Carter on bass – both of whom nicely pick up Chico's sense of adventure and humor. Titles include "Monday Monday", "Daydream", "Stella By Starlight", "Evil Eye", "Manila", "That Boy With The Long Hair", and "Monday Monday". LP, Vinyl record album

Tubby HayesSyndicate – Live At The Hopbine 1968 Vol 1 (180 gram pressing – with bonus download code) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $26.99
A very very cool live set from the great tenorist Tubby Hayes – one that has him working in an unusual quartet with Louis Stewart on guitar – a setting that makes a really nice change for Hayes! The track are all very long and open – three of the four are past the ten minute mark – and Stewart's guitar often provides this rhythmic comping while Tubby solos – creating blocks of chromatic sound that make for a wonderful counterpart to the sharper, soulful lines from Hayes as he creates with the sort of non-stop energy we love in his live performances. The rest of the group includes Kenny Baldock on bass and Spike Wells on drums – and titles include "The Syndicate", "Gingerbread Boy", "The Inner Splurge", and "The Gentle Rain".
