✨✧ McCoy Tyner & Jackie McLeanIt's About Time ... LP
Blue Note, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The leaders are sporting some serious 80s fashions on the cover – but the record's got a really solid sort of sound – and an approach that strongly shows the growth in both players since their earlier years at Blue Note! Tyner's a musician who really took off in strides during the 70s – and his free sense of energy and life really seems to set McLean's horn on fire – at least on the tracks that feature Jackie on board. Part of the album just has Tyner's piano in a group with Ron Carter or Marcus Miller on bass, and Al Foster on drums and Steve Thornton on percussion – but other numbers bring in McLean for some soaring lines on alto, plus a bit of trumpet from Jon Faddis too. Titles include "You Taught My Heart To Sing", "Hip Toe", "Spur Of The Moment", "It's About Time", and "No Flowers Please". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny RollinsNewk's Time ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Very Good+ ... $24.99
About as classic as you can get for Sonny Rollins during the 50s – from the cover right down to the incredible solos on the set! The album's got Rollins really stretching out – still not finding the freer trio mode of his Vanguard session, but still bringing in plenty of fresh ideas in both his phrasing and the construction of his tunes – way more than just the roots of his (still excellent) years as a boppish player. The group's nice and loose – with Wynton Kelly on soulful piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all able to snap into a groove when needed, but also letting Rollins really lay back into a solo too. Titles include the sublime "Asiatic Raes", plus "Namely You", "Tune Up", "Wonderful Wonderful", and "Blues For Philly Joe". If you've ever needed a record to convince you how great Rollins is, this might just be the one! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thelonious MonkIt's Monk Time ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Thelonious Monk albums ever – a bare bones, no nonsense session that's filled with great work from tenorist Charlie Rouse! The record's filled with everything that's great about the Monk/Rouse team in these years – an incredible interplay between sax and piano, served up over the sorts of angular tunes that Monk had been putting forth for years, but somehow at a level that's even more perfect, more "Monkish" than before! Other members of the group are Butch Warren on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Lulu's Back In Town", "Memories Of You", "Brake's Sake", "Stuffy Turkey", and "Shuffle Boil". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Quincy JonesThis Is How I Feel About Jazz ... LP
ABC, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic – and an important early album from Quincy Jones! Q's working here in some of his hippest settings of the 50s – scoring longish versions of jazz tunes for groups that include players like Lucky Thompson on tenor, Herbie Mann on flute, Art Farmer on trumpet, Phil Woods and Gene Quill on alto sax, Hank Jones on piano, and even Charles Mingus on bass! As with most Jones albums of the time, Quincy has a way of making a bigger group sound nice and lean – hitting some especially nice edges along with the rhythms, and really showing the way towards a new soulful sound for a bigger band. Titles include a sublime 10 minute version of "Walkin" that kicks off the album with a great soulful groove – plus original tunes "Evening In Paris", "Stockholm Sweetnin", and "Boo's Blues", as well as a version of Cannonball Adderley's "Sermonette".

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoGreat Black Music – Jackson In Your House ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
One of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago's all-time classics! If you've ever bought an Art Ensemble album and said "Hmm, what's all the fuss about?", get this one. It'll change your mind. The band is in perfect form – and hits an incredible blend of free thinking modernism and soulful soloing, peppered with a healthy dose of humor. The tracks are shortish, and very tight – and titles include "Jackson In Your House", "Song For Charles", "The Waltz", and "Get In Line". LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieKansas City Suite – The Music Of Benny Carter ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
A great little set – despite our initial fears about the package – and a really wonderful pairing of the talents of Count Basie and Benny Carter! We'll admit that we're the first ones to shy away from anything that says "Kansas City" in the title – as we expect a lot of hoke – but this album's a surprisingly great batch of tunes, original numbers written by Benny Carter in honor of the KC of days past, but arranged and performed by the Basie group in a swinging style that's got the best touches of their Roulette years, plus a bit of Ellingtonish ambition in the horn charts. Titles include "Katy Do", "Miss Missouri", "Jackson County Jubilee", "Sunset Glow", "Meetin Time", and "The Wiggle Walk". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ornette ColemanSomething Else!!!! ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good ... $14.99
Pre-Atlantic work from Ornette Coleman – one of his first recorded statements in jazz – and one of his boldest! At some level, the complete Coleman sound isn't entirely in place here – as there's a bit of a trace of hardbop in the mix – not entirely, but just a bit. But at another level, the record's still way darn bolder than just about anything coming out of LA at the time – proof that amidst all the cool jazz ruminations of the 50s, there was a second wave of modernism about to explode! The group here features Don Cherry on trumpet, Walter Norris on piano, Don Payne on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and while the core harmelodic rhythmic approach isn't always in place, it's more than made up for by some surprisingly free energy. Titles include "Invisible", "The Blessing", "Alpha", and "The Sphinx". LP, Vinyl record album

Bill EvansBest Of Bill Evans ... LP
Verve, 1960s. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
A nice collection of side Evans cut for Verve, featuring the introspective pianist in a variety of settings. "Beautiful Love" and "My Foolish Heart" were recorded live at Town Hall in a trio setting with Chuck Israels and Arnie Wise. "Spartacus Love Theme" and "How About You?" feature Evans accompanying himself on overdubbed pianos from the Conversations With Myself LP, while "Bemsha Swing" is a similar recording that was previously unissued at the time of this collection. "I Believe In You" and "Danny Boy" were recorded with the Monty Budwig and Shelly Manne trio lineup and issued originally on Empathy. "I've Got You Under My Skin" is a duet with Jim Hall off Intermodulation, and "Valse" features the trio of Evans, Chuck Israels and Grady Tate accompanied by a symphony orchestra.

✨✧ Dick GriffinDream For Rahsaan ... LP
Ruby, 1979. Near Mint- ... $59.99
A warm tribute to the great Rahsaan Roland Kirk, and one that features Griffin's trombone in a group with Gary Bartz on alto sax, Stanley Cowell on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and either Billy Hart or Idris Muhammad on drums – all wonderful players who really fit the soulful spirit of the session. The material is hardly a batch of easy covers of Kirk tunes, and instead features some really wonderful numbers penned by Griffin – tunes filled with all the sense of soul and joy that Rahsaan brought to his own music. Titles include "There Is A Time For Love", "Darkness Of Duke", "It's About That Time", "A Dream For Rahsaan", and "Come Dance With Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1966. Very Good- ... $11.99
Another killer from Quincy! Man, he just couldn't miss with these hip 60s soundtracks, and the grooviness of this one is a real testament to his genius. About half the album's straight jazz numbers – played with some wonderful elements like Hammond solos, vibes, electric harpsichord and even some weird sound effects. The other half is orchestral, and the overall style is as cool as any of Quincy's other work from the time, and the album's filled with loads of groovy gems waiting to be rediscovered! Titles include "Psychosis", "Threadbare", "Preludium", "Fox's Sugar", "Big Sir", and "Funny Farm". (Soundtracks, Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album

Stan LeveyStan Levey Plays The Compositions Of Cooper, Holman, & Giuffre (10 inch LP) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1954. Near Mint- ... $29.99
The first album ever from drummer Stan Levey, but a set that already shows his mighty talents as a leader! Stan wisely chose some great songs to work with here – penned by west coast highlights Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper, and Bill Holman – and taken into a small combo mode that really shakes the tunes free of any of the larger Kenton-esque qualities of the composers. Giuffre is on the record – playing baritone in the sextet along with Zoot Sims on tenor, Conte Candoli on trumpet, Claude Williamson on piano, and Max Bennett on bass – about as great of a Bethlehem lineup as you could hope for at the time. Sims brings in a really rich sense of soul tot he record – and titles include "Drum Sticks", "Lightnin' Bug", "Exaktamo", and "Extraversion". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Morgan with Cedar WaltonEasy Living ... LP
Contemporary, 1985. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A great date from the later revival years of altoist Frank Morgan – thanks to a warm performance from the Cedar Walton trio! One of the great things about late Morgan is the way in which he's able to really fit himself into different settings – still holding onto his soulful roots, but also fluidly picking up the best elements of the groups he works with – such as the rich tones and soaring styles that Walton brings to this session! Cedar's piano always sounds great with a horn, and the warmth in Morgan's alto is quite a different match than some of Walton's tenor-driven sessions – and bassist Tony Dumas and drummer Billy Higgins keep things in just the right subtle side of the spectrum to fit the mood. Titles include "The Rubber Man", "Yes & No", "Manha De Carnaval", "Now's The Time", "Three Flowers", and "Third Street Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny SmithPlays The Songbook Of Jimmy Van Heusen ... LP
Roost, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Guitarist Johnny Smith plays the music of Jimmy Van Heusen – a composer whose understated approach is a perfect match for the subtle style of the stringman! The songs are mostly easygoing numbers, in a style that suits Johnny well – and allows him to open up those fluid tones and colors in just the right way. Backing is by a trio that features Bob Panecoast on piano, George Roumanis on bass, and Gerry Segal on drums – working with a vibe that matches the strength of Smith's other Roost sessions from the time – the kind of albums that helped redefine the role of the guitar in jazz during the postwar years. Titles include "Swinging On A Star", "Imagination", "Darn That Dream", "Nancy", "I Thought About You", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", and "But Beautiful". LP, Vinyl record album

Sadao Watanabe & Charlie MarianoIberian Waltz ... LP
Takt (Japan), Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
A rare recording from Charlie Mariano's "lost" years in Japan – an under-documented period of his career next to earlier American work and later 70s European fusion! At the time of the set, Charlie was living in Japan with (then) wife pianist Toshiko Akioshi – and opening up tremendously from a musical standpoint – exploring new sounds and new modes of expression that really took him a long way beyond the straighter jazz of his roots. This set has Charlie working with Japanese reedman Sadao Watanabe, in a session that features both players on alto sax, but also using folkloric flutes as well – mixing the crisper sax work with earthier, more organic tones that really make the album sound tremendous! This aspect of the record is featured on 2 long tracks – "God Has Mercy" and "Stone Garden Of Ryoanji" – both of which were written by Mariano, and which have a wonderful "jazz meets world" feel – nicely balanced by the more traditional jazz numbers "I Thought About You" and "Iberian Waltz", the latter of which is still a relatively exploratory Mariano number that runs for over 16 minutes!

A cool set of jazz instrumentals – designed as part of the Music Minus One instruction series, but pretty nice on their own! Wilder's playing trumpet, and appears to be the leader on most of the tunes – and other players include Hank Jones, Mundell Lowe, Chuck Wayne, and Dave Bailey. Tracks include "Moonlight Bay", "Pretty Baby", "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone", and "Can't We Talk It Over" – and the sound of the album's like some of Wilder's mellower work of the time.

Tony Williams LifetimeOld Bum's Rush ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A real change for the sound of Tony Williams Lifetime group – but a great one too, as the album's a lot more soulful than some of the group's other albums! There's been a real shift in the lineup here – with keyboardist Webster Lewis taking the place of Larry Young – and bringing in a warmer, more soul-based style – one that fits nicely with the expanded vocal styles of the album. The lovely Tequila Williams makes her debut alongside Tony on some of the album's lyrics, and production of the set is handled by Ben Sidran – in the same sort of mix of jazz and hip rock-era vocals that you'd find in his own work from the time. And best of all, the album's strongest tracks have a mix of modal grooves and funky undercurrents that really stand out – using some great jazzy changes to make for a really fresh set! Titles include "Mystic Knights Of The Sea", "You Make It Easy", "What It's About", and "The Boodang". LP, Vinyl record album

This set features 4 long tracks that were not issued on the original 2LP Plugged Nickel set – including long versions of "Walkin", "Miles", "Stella By Starlight", and "If I Were A Bell", 2 in alternate takes, 2 that were never issued at all.

Atlantic, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great one from Sonny Fortune – done with the fusiony sound he was working so well with at the time, and still filled with a tight conception and an incredible group of musicians who bring depth and deliver some really great solos! The title track is an incredible 10 minute cut that breaks into a beautiful modal groove about 4 minutes into it – and that groove is completely wonderful. It's far from the only high point of a set filled with them. Players include Kenny Barron on Fender Rhodes, Woody Shaw on coronet & flugelhorn, Gary King on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, Sammy Figueroa on congas, Rafael Cruz on percussion, and Sonny doing his thing on flute, piccolo and sax. Other tracks include "Bacchanal", "Never Again Is Such A Long Time", "There's Nothing Smart About Being Stupid" and "The Afro-Americans". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best of Les McCann's 70s Atlantic recordings, and one that captures him with a lot of fire and funkiness – and none of the looser modes of other recordings from the time! Les sings on about half the cuts – but the focus is still quite strongly on his funky jazz, which makes even the vocal numbers work well here – giving them a punch that puts the lyrics in very nice formation. Includes a nice long version of "What's Going On", with backing vocals by The Persuasions; a funky instrumental called "Shamading" that has some excellent clavinet work; and a few other vocal tracks with backup vocals by Eugene McDaniels, like "Let It Lay", "Talk To The People", and Stevie Wonder's "Seems So Long". Also features the funky instrumental "North Carolina" – one of Les' best funky tracks from the 70s, with a really messed up keyboard sound! LP, Vinyl record album

One of the rarest of Howard's excellent sides for Capitol in the 60s – and one of the grooviest too! The format here is a bit different than the others – in that some larger arrangements are added to the core group in the set – making for some added horn flourishes that dip in nicely amongst the riffing on organ and guitar that you normally get on Roberts albums.

Side one of the album features the beautiful "Back Country Suite" – an extended piece of shorter numbers, composed by Allison with a wonderfully evocative feel. The depth of the work is wonderful, and shows that even at an early point, Allison was forging a unique voice in jazz that went far beyond simple work on piano as an accompanist. Other players on the set include bassist Taylor La Fargue and drummer Frank Isola – and side two features the tunes "Blueberry Hill", "I Thought About You", "In Salah", and "One Room Country Shack".

Full-on fusion from the great Billy Cobham – at his most pyrotechnic here, with drum lines that just about none of his contemporaries could ever hope to touch! Some moments have Cobham really taking off into the skies, right from the start of a track – but other moments are nicely spaced out, creating that sense of balance that's always made these late 70s Atlantic albums such standouts – not just in Billy's career, but in jazz fusion in general. John Scofield plays guitar throughout, and the record's got some great keyboards from Dawilli Gonga too – on titles that include "29", "Life & Times", "Siesta", "Earthlings", and "Song For A Friend".

Killer work from Oscar Peterson – one of his seminal late 60s sides for the MPS label – recorded in a loose, open-ended style that even tops the greatness of his previous work for Verve! The production is wonderful – a very relaxed setting created by MPS producer Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer – and Oscar's working with Sam Jones on bass, and Bob Durham on drums – recording at Brunner-Schwer's home, which is about as informal as you can get for a date like this! Titles are mostly classics, but opened up in the Peterson way – and tunes include "In A Mellotone", "Nica's Dream", "Green Dolphin Street", "Summertime", "Sometimes I'm Happy", and "Who Can I Turn To".

A pretty unique record by Gibbs – a set of Jewish tunes set to jazz, played by a group that includes vibes, piano, trombone, and clarinet. The clarinet's the main influence here on the sound – as it's used in a snakey way that instantly invokes Klezmer music, yet still retains the fluidity you'd expect from a jazz album. About half the tunes on the album will be instantly familiar – as they're numbers with popularity that brought them out of the Jewish market into the mainstream in years past – and titles include "Bei Mir Bist Du Schon", "S & S", "Nyah Shere", "And The Angels Sing", "My Yiddishe Momme", and "Papirossen (Cigarettes)".

Hibbler's one of our favorite vocalists from the early 50s, but mixing him with Kirk is a strange approach. Oddly, though, the set works – thanks mostly to Hibbler's insistence on keeping things straight. Titles include "Something About Believing", "Daybreak", and "Carney & Begarnd Place". Plus, the album also features one track – "Dream" – which has Leon Thomas on vocals instead of Hibbler. LP, Vinyl record album

What's great about this is that doesn't feel in the least a hokey revisit the old days kinda thing, as if we should have expected something so crass from such wonderful players. They play some evergreen jazz standards some numbers that made waves in the 60s and later, the group includes Jamil Nasser on bass, Frank Gand on drums, plus guitar by Doug Raney on "You Came To Me From Out Of Nowhere".

With a name like "Nark", Vaughn must have gotten teased a lot in school – but he probably more than made up for that by coming back with a strong little indie jazz set like this! Vaughn plays trumpet, and the rest of the lineup includes sax/flute, bass, drums, and piano – the last of which is sometimes electric, bringing a sweeter, warmer sound to some of the best cuts. The album's mostly straight – with little funk or groove elements – but it's a well-played batch of work from some players we know little about. Titles include the originals "Alone" and "Cutting Through" – plus "Counting Down", "Blues In The Guts", "Somewhere In The Sun", and "Runaway". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobbi HumphreyDig This! ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone killer from funky flute player Bobbi Humphrey – one of her early albums for Blue Note Records, and a set that's a perfect summation of the best sides of her talents! The album's got a slightly different feel than Bobbi's work with Larry Mizell – yet still sports a similar approach that blends her amazingly spiritual flute lines with rich larger backings – in this case arranged by Horace Ott, Alphonse Mouzon, and Wade Marcus, in a sublime blend of electric jazz and soaring strings – all with a feel that's almost like some lost blacksploitation soundtrack! Given the lady's strength on her instrument, and her sharp sound on her solos, the record's got a focus and righteousness that takes it way past most contemporary efforts of this nature – a bold testament to the qualities that have made Bobbi one of our favorite players on flute for many many years. The set also features some wonderful Fender Rhodes – played both by Harry Whitaker and Paul Griffin – plus bass from Wilbur Bascomb, and heavy drums from Alphonse Mouzon. Titles include "Love Theme From Fuzz", "Nubian Lady", "Lonely Town Lonely Street", "Smiling Faces Sometimes", Is This All", "I Love Every Little Thing About You", "El Mundo De Maravilas", and a great version of Mouzon's "Virtue".
