Art BlakeyGolden Boy ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Very Good ... $6.99
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
(Vinyl and cover are nice and clean! Cover has a small name on the back.)

Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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

✨✧ Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Plays Hip Hits/Golden Boy ... CD
Mercury, 1963/1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

Berklee, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
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

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Live! ... LP
Capitol, 1964. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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 BasieCount Basie & The Kansas City Seven (Impulse) ... CD
Impulse, 1962. Used ... $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". CD

✨✧ George BensonShape Of Things To Come ... LP
CTI/A&M, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
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

Alan CohenRunnin Wild/Black, Brown & Beige ... CD
Argo/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1975. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
Two 70s recordings from Brit leader Alan Cohen – both of which feature traditional jazz played by larger, hipper groups that feature players that include Kenny Wheeler, Michael Gibbs, Brian Priestley, Peter Ind, and Nat Peck. Runnin Wild is an attempt to recreate the sound of the classic Paul Whiteman orchestra – but there's Cohen inflects the work with a dark undercurrent of nostalgia that brings out a surprising edge. Black Brown & Beige is even better – a reading of Duke Ellington's famous suite of tracks, in a performance that features Norma Winstone on the vocal tunes – and which has some extremely strong solo work from Richard Sudhalter, John Davies, Keith Nichols, and Paul Nossiter. Titles on Runnin Wild include "Runnin Wild", "China Boy", "Singin The Blues", and "There Ain't No Sweet Man". Titles on Black Brown & Beige include "West Indian Dance", "Come Sunday", "Work Song", "The Blues", and "In One Movement". CD

John ColtraneJohn Coltrane Quartet Plays ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... $33.99
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

John ColtraneLegacy (4CD set) ... CD
Impulse, Late 50s/1960s. Used 4 CDs ... $13.99
A fantastic set of work by John Coltrane – a 4CD box set that's a lasting tribute to his genius, featuring mostly music from his best years at Impulse Records, plus selected bits from earlier years! The set features tracks selected by Ravi Coltrane, plus bonus material from the Coltrane family, an essay by Amiri Baraka, and some previously unissued material (where do they keep turning up all this stuff, anyway?) The package starts with Trane's more down to earth years, then picks up speed nicely as his music soared to the heavens on spiritual wings. Titles include "Nature Boy (first version)", "Venus", "Compassion", "Stablemates", "A Love Supreme (part 1)", "Offering", "Iris", "After The Rain", "Naima", "Miles Mode", "Liberia", "Village Blues", "Up Gainst The Wall", "Serenity", "Two Bass Hit", "One UP One Down (long version)', and "I Want To Talk About You".

Miles DavisMiles Davis Live In Europe 1967 – The Bootleg Series Vol 1 (3CDs/DVD) ... CD
Columbia, 1967. Used 3CDs/DVD ... $33.99
Amazing live documents of Miles Davis and his incredible mid-to-late 60s quintet – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – complete concert recordings from Antwerp, Copenhagen and Paris on 3CDs seeing release for the first time ever, plus a DVD featuring the only known video footage of this group from the period! CD 1 features material from 10/28/68 in Antwerp, CD 2 on 11/2/67 in Copenhagen and 11/6/67 in Paris, with the latter concert continued on CD 3. This is landmark stuff here – a surprisingly rare opportunity to hear first rate live recordings of legendary material from the ESP, Miles Smiles, Sorcerer and Nefertiti albums – as well as brilliant revisits of vital earlier material. Includes live takes on "Agitation", "Foot Prints", "No Blues", "Gingerbread Boy", "On Green Dolphin Street", "The Theme", "Footprints", "Masqualero", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Walkin'" and more. The DVD starts with five numbers recorded on 11/7/67 in Karlzruhe, Germany: "Agitation", "Footprints", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Gingerbread Boy" and "The Theme". It concludes with material in Stockholm on 10/31/67: "Agitation", "Footprints", "'Round Midnight", "Gingerbread Boy" and "The Theme". CD

Bob DoroughExcursion Through Oliver! ... LP
MMO, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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".

Bob EnevoldsenSmorgasbord ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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".

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". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1954/1955. Very Good ... $11.99
Tremendous guitar work from the great Tal Farlow – easily one of our favorite jazz guitarists ever, and a player with a wonderful sense of tone and timing! This early album has Tal declaring himself loudly and firmly – using a style that's got some slightly raspy edges, and which is a nice change from some of the too-clean modes of other 50s guitarists. The album features a core original 10" album session with a group that includes Oscar Pettiford on bass, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Joe Morello on drums – plus 4 more tracks from a trio with Red Mitchell on bass and Claude Williamson on piano. Titles include "This Is Always", "Tea For Two", "Blues In The Closet", "Gibson Boy", "My Old Flame", "Is There Somebody Lovelier Than You", "Everything I've Got", "You And The Night and Music", "Love Nest", and "When The Wind And The Rain Are In Your Hair".

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

Epic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
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 ... CD
Resonance, 1977. Used 2CD ... $13.99
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!)
