Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
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

Berndt Egerbladh TrioBoy Full Of Thoughts ... CD
Sawano (Japan), 1988. Used ... $11.99
A soaring bit of piano work from Berndt Egerbladh – an artist we mostly know from his funky keyboards and arrangements on the 1970 album by Swedish singer Doris – but who steps out here in a wonderfully intimate set of trio tracks! A good amount of the tunes here are originals by Berndt, played with a freely-flowing style that's got plenty of feeling, but no hoke or over-done emotions. Accompaniment is simple, and sensitive – bass by Bjorn Alke and drums by Sten Oberg – and the record's a tremendous example of the European trio sound at its best – unfettered, but never too free – just set loose to explore a range of tones, colors, and changes in a magnificent post-Bill Evans mode. Titles include "Boy Full Of Thought", "Night Hawk", "A Song For Amy", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Ewa", "Sarek", and "The Blue Road". CD features a few alternate takes, too! CD

Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Plays Hip Hits/Golden Boy ... CD
Mercury, 1963/1964. New Copy ... $8.99 18.98
Classic Quincy Jones from the 60s – a pair of records that really show why his jazz skills were unlike anyone else! Quincy Jones Plays Hip Hits is a very groovy record that was done with a feel that's somewhere in between his Big Band Bossa album and his best 60s soundtrack work! The format is simple – Quincy picks a sweet batch of jazz semi-hits from the early 60s, plays them with a nice mix of soul jazz arrangements, and works with a great ensemble filled with wonderful players – including Roland Kirk, Budd Johnson, Seldon Powell, James Moody, and Jerome Richardson on reeds; Lalo Schifrin and Patti Brown on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Melba Liston on trombone – plus lots of great percussion at the bottom, helping bring some Latin energy to the grooves at points. Tunes are familiar, but all given a great Quincy Jones twist – and titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Jive Samba", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Bossa Nova USA", and "Watermelon Man". Golden Boy is a sweet bridge between Quincy's big band recordings and his groovier soundtrack work of the mid 60s – as the record combines straight jazzy grooving with some of the cooler elements of Quincy's soundtrack scores, like stepping strings, wordless voices, and a breathy mellow groove that floats across the disc in a wonderful way! Aiding Quincy in the album are a host of top-line jazz players – including Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Woods on saxes – plus Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Al Grey on trombone, and Jim Hall on guitar! Although titled after the show Golden Boy, only a few cuts here are from that musical – and the rest include Quincy Jones originals and some cool covers, given the Q twist. Titles include "Seaweed", "The Witching Hour", "Hard Day's Night", "The Sidewinder", and "Theme From Golden Boy", done in 2 versions, both great! CD

Jackie McLeanNature Boy ... CD
Blue Note, 1999. Used ... $10.99
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

Art BlakeyGolden Boy ... CD
EMI/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... About June 29, 2016
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". CD

✨✧ Don CherryHome Boy – Sister Out ... CD
Barclay (France), 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
The connection between the spacey jazz trumpet of Don Cherry, and the later urban funk of his daughter Nenah, always seems a bit weak – until you hear this 1985 effort, which has Cherry working in a strange mix of contemporary rhythms and his older funkier styles. Cherry actually lays down vocals on a number of tracks, in a self conscious bluesy sort of way that's almost in a pomo kitschy style. The effect doesn't always work, but there's more than a few interesting moments on the LP. Titles include "Art Deco", "Call Me", "Rappin Recipie", and "Treat Your Lady Right". CD

Berklee, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
A nice little tribute to Boston boy Charlie Mariano – done by the Berklee School Of Music, at a time when the group included John Abercrombie on guitar, Yasuo Arakawa on bass, Alf Clausen on French horn, and Ernie Watts on sax and flute! Herb Pomeroy directs, and titles include "Iberian Waltz", "Miss Blue Eyes", "Little T", "Come Fall", and "Impressions Of Kyoto". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Count BasieCount Basie & The Kansas City Seven ... LP
Impulse, 1962. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Stripped-down Count Basie from the start of the 60s – a great little set that has the Count working with some of the best players from his larger group, in a session of even more intimate small combo material! The sounds here echo the Basie groove of the earlier years, but the overall presentation is a fair bit more modern – nicely syncopated with that sense of space discovered by Basie in the 50s – and perfectly interpreted by players who include Thad Jones on trumpet, Frank Wess on flute, Frank Foster on tenor, Freddie Green on guitar, Eric Dixon on flute, and Basie himself on both piano and organ – the latter of which is quite a treat! Titles include "Secrets", "Count's Place", "I Want A Little Girl", "Tally Ho Mr Basie", "Senator Whitehead", "Whatcha Talkin", and "Shoe Shine Boy". LP, Vinyl record album

Willem Breuker KollektiefA Paris/Summer Music ... LP
Marge (France), 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A great Parisian recording from the legendary Willem Breuker – pulled from the most inventive years of his legendary group of Dutch avant musicians! The set captures the maestro at his best – working with a classic lineup of the Kollektief that includes Leo Cuypers on piano and vocals, Maarten Van Norden on saxes, Boy Raayamkers on trumpet, and some great drum work from Rob Verdurmen – all holding together beautifully with the offbeat mix of modern and traditional elements that Breuker used in his music. The sound of the album is surprisingly strong at times – especially on the straighter tracks, which groove along in a rhythmic mode, then break out for some solos that really go to town – and the whole thing's also handled with a fair degree of wit, as you'd expect from Breuker. Titles include "Condizione Niente", "Summer Music", "Wake Up", and "Parabasis". LP, Vinyl record album

Willem Breuker KollektiefWillem Breuker Kollektief ... LP
About Time, 1984. Near Mint- ... $11.99
American greatness from this seminal Dutch ensemble – a set recorded in the US when the group were really hitting on all burners – linking together rich strains of modern jazz in the course of a single performance! There's a great blend of tight concepts and freer solos going on here – and reedman Breuker is still very might at his most inventive – playing with a rich, feeling sort of tone, and moving through lots of new ideas – and never falling into some of the easier or more gimmicky modes that might normally hamper a project like this. Other musicians include Andre Goudbeek on alto, Maarten Van Norden on tenor, Andy Altenfelder and Boy Raaymakers on trumpet, and Bernard Hunnekink on trombone – and titles include "Women's Voting Rights", "Sylvia's Proposal", "Benares", "Kontrafunkt", "Song Of Mandalay", and "Amsterdam Rhapsody Overture".

Les BrownJazz Song Book ... LP
Coral, 1959. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
A sublime set that's built strongly around solo contributions from players that include Buddy DeFranco, Terry Gibbs, Frank Rosolino, Zoot Sims, Don Fagerquist, and Ronnie Lang – all players who are quite comfortable in a large group setting, but really know how to make the most of their solo space when it comes around! Brown put the album together in a way that shifts the focus between soloists from track to track – and the different voicings really give each number a great sense of mood, even when the tunes themselves are familiar ones. Arrangements are by Bill Holman, and titles include "Pizza Boy", "The Claw", "Love Is Here To Stay", "Chelsea Bridge", "Willow Weep For Me", "King Phillip Stomp", and "Let's Get Away From It All". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label stereo pressing with deep groove. Label has a sticker spot. Cover has a center split on the top seam.)

John ColtraneJohn Coltrane Quartet Plays ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold ... $39.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label A-85 mono pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Vinyl has a small mark that clicks on "Brazilia". Cover has some pen inside the gatefold and a scrape on back.)

Miles DavisMiles Smiles ... LP
Columbia, 1966. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob DoroughExcursion Through Oliver! ... LP
MMO, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A very quirky little record – filled with the kind of offbeat tones we've always loved in the music of Bob Dorough! Bob doesn't sing on this set, but he does a wonderful job as a leader – helping rework tunes from the musical Oliver into creative vehicles for jazz-based expression – really changing them around a lot as instrumentals, and almost unlocking an even more playful side of their grooves. Other players include Clark Terry on trumpet, Tyree Glenn on trombone, Al Schackman on guitar, Ben Tucker on bass, and Bobby Thomas and Paul Motian on drums. Includes a great reading of "Food Glorious Food" – plus "It's a Fine Life", "Where Is Love", "Who Will Buy", "As Long As He Needs Me", "Consider Yourself", "Boy For Sale", and "Pick A Pocket Or Two". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb Ellis & Jimmy GiuffreHerb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... $19.99
Forget every bias you have against Herb Ellis – because this is a heck of a great little record – thanks in no small part to saxophonist Jimmy Giuffre! The style here is in a nice space between Giuffre's earlier work at Capitol and some of the gentler sounds of his later trio sides for Verve and Atlantic – and the lineup features the fuller horn lineup of the post-Four Brothers years, but also makes the instruments step out slowly and spaciously, using Ellis' guitar in a way that's not unlike Jim Hall's sound in Giuffre's later trio. Other players include Bud Shank, Art Pepper, Richie Kamuca, and Jim Hall (on rhythm guitar) – and titles include "A Country Boy", "My Old Flame", "Goose Grease", "You Know", "Remember", and "Patricia".

Bob EnevoldsenSmorgasbord ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the few albums as a leader by Bob Enevoldsen – a tremendously capable player who's working here on trombone, tenor, and bass! Enevoldsen's talents graced a number of key 50s sessions on the LA scene, but his vision here is even more incredible – and really sparkles throughout, thanks to some inventive arrangements played by a combo that includes accordion and piano from Marty Paich, drums and vibes from Larry Bunker, and guitar from a young Howard Roberts. Bunker's vibes are especially great, and often ring out with a colder tone that underscores the modernism of some of the tunes – but which is also offset by some warmer notes from Enevoldsen. The set features a number of great original tunes, and titles include "Mr Know It All", "Ding Dong, The Witch Is Dead", "John's Jumble", "You're In Love", "Bob's Boy", and "Swinger's Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, 1963. Used ... $4.99
A great west coast live date from Bill Evans – one that showed that his magic on the keys was equally at home in LA as it was in New York! The session's especially noteworthy for the presence of drummer Larry Bunker – a great player who worked on countless recordings, both jazz and non-jazz, but who hits a new level here with the Evans Trio – one that almost matches that of Paul Motian for his sensitivity and lyrical interplay with Evans' piano and the bass of Chuck Israels! Titles include "Blues In F", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "The Boy Next Door", "Swedish Pastry", and "Round Midnight" and the bonus track "All The Things You Are". CD

Jazz International, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Fantastic work from Art & Phil – a fantastic team together, who rarely recorded in this format! The album's a quintet session – recorded with Paul Motian, Teddy Kotick, and Eddie Costa – one with a lyrical modern edge that really brings out the best in both players, especially Art, who's a lot more lively here than on some of his more subdued 60s sessions. Tracks are all very well done – with firey solos from Art on most numbers, and some very tight rhythm work. Titles include "Big Ben", "Get Out Of The Road", "Nature Boy", "Stretch In F", and "Blues Plus Eight". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris ForemanNow Is The Time ... CD
Sirens, 2015. Used ... $4.99
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

Jimmy GiuffreAd Lib ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
A seminal middle period album from Jimmy – one recorded right before he really opened it up, but still with more modern touches than some of his earlier work! The group's a quartet – with the great Lawrence Marable on drums, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Red Mitchell on bass – and although this rhythm section-based style is quite different from Jimmy's freer trio work, there's still a magical approach to the music – taking Giuffre's horn to places you really wouldn't expect for the instrument at the time. Recorded with a really loose and easy feel by Bones Howe – and mostly improvised in the studio at the time of recording. Titles include "I Hear Red", "Problems", "Stella By Starlight", and "I Got Those Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear. Vinyl plays with light crackles on start of "The Boy Next Door", but the rest is great!)
