McCoy Tyner & Jackie McLeanIt's About Time ... LP
Blue Note, 1985. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

✨✧ Teddy EdwardsIt's About Time ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1960. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most easily swinging of Teddy's albums from the time – thanks to backing from the Les McCann trio! The format is simple – one of those "jazz soloist meets the famous piano trio" sessions that were big in the late 50s and early 60s. Teddy gets plenty of room to solo in his solid, deep tone – and Les holds back a bit more than usual, working the trio in a strong accompanist mode. Titles include "Frankly Speaking", "Beve's Cojumulations", "Undecided", "Fools Rush In", and "Lover Come Back To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Pacific Jazz pressing with silver text – in nice shape!)

Henry ThreadgillJust The Facts & Pass The Bucket ... LP
About Time, 1983. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Overlooked genius from Henry Threadgill – one of his under-exposed 80s sessions for the About Time label, and work that's every bit as great as his better-known sides for Delmark or Black Saint! The group here has a nice sense of freedom and interplay – almost a quality that hearkens back to Threadgill's roots in the AACM, thanks to strong contributions from Craig Harris on trombone, Olu Dara on trumpet, Fred Hopkins on bass, Deidre Murray on cello, and both Pheeroan Aklaff and John Betsch on percussion. The tracks are nicely arranged, but never too stiffly – and titles include "Cremation", "Black Blues", "Gateway", and "Just The Facts And Pass The Bucket". LP, Vinyl record album

Gustav BromBrom Stream ... LP
Supraphon (Czech Republic), 1966. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Some of the most modern work we've ever heard from groundbreaking Eastern European bandleader Gustav Brom – a set that's filled with sharp edges and experimental moments – but which also shows some of the usual Brom swing we've come to love over the years! There's a Kenton-esque love of tone colors going on here – a great sense of placement for the horns, so that they shift over each other wonderfully to create new sounds and tensions, which are then relaxed as the players break into freer solos. The "stream" in the title might be a reference to third stream jazz, but Brom's approach is a lot less academic here – and his group on the album features trumpet, tenor, alto, vibes, baritone sax, and piano. Titles include "Suite About Water", "Study For A Quarter Tone Trumpet", "Silver Spider", "Black Tears", "Poseidon", "Conflicts", and "Hallelujah Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy original pressing – in great shape, save for some light wear on the cover.)

✨✧ Paul BryantGroove Time ... LP
Fantasy, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $19.99
Excellent lost organ jazz LP on Fantasy featuring west coast organist Paul Bryant, with a quartet that includes Gene Edwards on guitar, Johnny Kirkwood on drums, and the great Plas Johnson on tenor – in one of his best-ever (and few) straight jazz performances. The set's got a nice stripped down organ groove, and is a hallmark recording of some of the more soulful stuff that Fantasy was doing at the time. Bryant's got a good clear sound, and he plays with a bit more fire than he does on the earlier albums he made with Curtis Amy. Johnson is excellent, and this set's just about the only way you can really hear him wail on tenor – since he made so many other records with strings or other more elaborate instrumentation. Tracks include "Two Minors", "Walrus Whiskers", "Evol", and "Funky Mountain". LP, Vinyl record album

Donald Byrd, Charlie Rouse, Al Cohn, & OthersKnow Your Jazz ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good ... $4.99
An interesting little session from ABC – recorded as sort of an educational record about jazz, directed by Creed Taylor – but also a session that comes off well in the jam session mode of some of the Savoy sets of the same time! Players are a varied lot – and include Donald Byrd, Oscar Pettiford, Gigi Gryce, Mundell Lowe, Tony Scott, Billy Taylor, and Kenny Clarke – all working together in a set of tunes that showcases a different mode of jazz with each track, and which features a different soloist stepping out to take the lead with each new number. Titles include "In A Mellow Tone", "If I Love Again", "There Will Never Be Another You", "Laura", "But Not For Me", "How About You", and "Stella By Starlight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear and a split bottom seam.)

Conte CandoliConte Candoli Quartet ... LP
Mode, 1957. Good ... $11.99
Arguably one of the best records cut for the short-lived Mode label in the late 50s – and easily one of the best from trumpeter Conte Candoli too! For the session, Conte front a quartet with Vince Guaraldi on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Stan Levey on drums – and Guaraldi's piano style's got a heck of a lot more soul than you'd expect, a detail that brings a nice depth to a session that might have been otherwise lightweight – and which comes off with the same strength overall as the pair's outing from the same time for the Crown label. Candoli seems to play about half the tracks with a mute, but still in a style that's more open and fluid than much of his other work from the time – and titles include "Tara Ferma", "Diane", "Mambo Blues", "Mediolistic", and "Walkie Talkie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has wear, a large peeld spot on the back and wide tape along all seams. Vinyl has some pain splatters, but plays through with some surface noise.)

Pete Christlieb/Warne MarshApogee ... LP
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A brilliant set of post-post-post Konitz jazz – a late 70s Warne Marsh session, produced by Donald Fagan and Walter Becker of Steely Dan! Despite the smooth jazz feeling of Becker & Fagan's own work, the pair are completely respectful to Marsh and his twin-tenor frontman Pete Christlieb – recording them along with Lou Levy on piano, Jim Hughart on bass, and Nick Ceroli on drums, in a setting that's got a warm, acoustic feel. There's no tricks or electricity on the set – just a tight, angular approach to modern jazz – crafted in the twin-sax mode that Marsh recorded in often during the 50s. Titles include "Magnatism", "317 E 32nd", "Rapunzel", and "Tenors Of The Time". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "Lunarcy", "Love Me", and "How About You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a Special sticker on front.)

Miles DavisDig (Conception/Early Miles) ... LP
Prestige, 1951/1953. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
A 70s 2LP set that brings together some key material from Miles first few years at Prestige – tunes that were mostly issued on the albums Early Miles and Conception. The work is about as classic as you can get from Miles' early years – with players that include Sonny Rollins on tenor, Bennie Green on trombone, Jackie McLean on alto, John Lewis or Walter Bishop on piano, and Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, or Kenny Clarke on drums. Some tracks get quite long for the time, and the set includes the classic "Dig", a great reading of "It's Only A Paper Moon", and the tracks "Denial", "Down", "Morpheus", "Bluing", "Conception", "Willie The Wailer", "Tasty Pudding", "For Adults Only", and "Out Of The Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy DeFrancoCooking The Blues ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great one from Buddy DeFranco – exactly the kind of record that will make you understand why jazz collectors have always prized his Verve Records work so much! Although Buddy's given instrument, the clarinet, was one that was handled by so many others at the time in kind of an outmoded way – DeFranco always managed to keep things fresh and modern, drawing heavily on bop inspiration for a record like this, yet also remaining true to his roots too. Part of the strength of the record is the group, too – given that Sonny Clark is on piano, bringing in a mighty soulful undercurrent to the rhythm section, and even playing a bit of organ too! Tal Farlow brings in some nice guitar – and the group's completed by Gene Wright on bass and Bobby White on drums – on titles that include "Indian Summer", "Cooking The Blues", "Stardust", and "How About You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with insert. Cover has a light stain on the bottom 2 inches, with a bit of stuck-on paper on front.)

✨✧ Joe FarrellPenny Arcade ... LP
CTI, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Killer CTI work from Joe Farrell – with grooves so sharp you could cut your trousers on them! Farrell's angular reed style is in perfect form here – grooving with a small group that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – a combo that's got a harder, tighter feel than most CTI groups – a key reason why Joe's records of this time are so legendary! The album features a fantastic version of Stevie Wonder's "Too High" – one that breaks all over the beginning with these riffs by Farrell, then grooves into a CTI electric funk mode for about 13 minutes. All tracks are long – and other tracks include "Hurricane Jane", "Geo Blue", "Penny Arcade", and "Cloud Cream". LP, Vinyl record album

Lars GullinLars Gullin With The Moretone Singers ... LP
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the more enigmatic of Lars Gullin's mid 50s American albums – a session that features the master baritonist blowing alongside the Moretone Singers – a vocal ensemble who sings in cascading tones that kind of shade and color the background. The approach is different than other jazz vocal group records – in that the singers don't really handle solos or songs – they mostly just come in chorus formation to support the group, in the manner of a string ensemble. The sound's dark and moody, and actually makes a surprisingly wonderful backdrop for Gullin's majestic horn – really setting him free from the rest of the group, not having to worry about swing, just exploring space and sound in a way that's rare for his albums of the time! Titles include "Late Date", "Lover Man", "Merlin", "Late Summer", and "For FJ Fans Only". LP, Vinyl record album
(Drummer logo pressing with deep groove – nice and clean! Cover has a bit of peeling of the laminate, but is decent overall – and this is definitely a nice copy.)

Coleman HawkinsToday & Now ... LP
Impulse, 1962. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $48.99
A beautiful record – but that's no surprise, since most of the later work of Coleman Hawkins tends to be great! The setting is quite laidback – and Hawkins' time-weathered tenor is placed in a perfect setting with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Major Holley on bass, and Eddie Locke on drums. The set list is spare, with simple quartet arrangements – but Hawk's solos are mindblowingly perfect, and with a great edge that you won't find in his earlier recordings. It's hard to describe what we're talking about –but the more and more we listen to his later records, the more we realize what a genius he was! Includes the tracks "Don't' Love Me", "Quintessence", "Go Lil Liza", and "Swingin' Scotch". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original orange and black label mono pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has some wear, an ink stamp and some peeled spots.)

Richard Groove HolmesThat Healin' Feelin' ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
Great stuff from Groove – a tight, no-nonsense set of hard grooves featuring a quartet that includes Rusty Bryant, Billy Butler, and Herbie Lovelle. There's a strong bottom sound to the session – picking up from the Misty days, when Groove learned that he could take just about any track, and make it groove like a mofo! Because of this, the album's selections – "That Healin Feelin", "Irene Court", "Castle Rock", and "On a Clear Day" – all sound night and tight, as Groove would have delivered the tunes playing before one of his many well-attended audiences at the time! LP, Vinyl record album

Hank Jones & Oliver NelsonHappenings ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
A great little record – very different than anything else that Hank Jones ever recorded! The album features arrangements by Oliver Nelson – done in that mod 60s pop-jazz style that he was using on his best work – and about half the record features Jones playing electric harpsichord, one of those groovy instruments that we can never get enough of! Needless to say, the combination of these two factors pushes the record far away from Jones' usual straight jazz piano trio approach – as does some tight added horn work, and an overall feel that's right up there with the grooviest sounds that Impulse or Verve had to offer in the 60s. Titles include "Broadwalk Samba", "Happenings", "Funky But Blues", "Fugue Time", "Jazztime USA", "Mas Que Nada", and "Cul De Sac". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label mono pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Quincy JonesThis Is How I Feel About Jazz ... LP
ABC, 1956. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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".

Yusef LateefYusef Lateef (aka Yusef Lateef At Cranbrook) ... LP
Cadet, 1958. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A rare treasure from Yusef Lateef – one of his hardest to find albums, recorded right around the same time as his magical work for Savoy! The record has Lateef playing in his local Detroit area – working with Terry Pollard on piano, William Austin on bass, and Frank Gant on a host of percussion instruments. The tracks have that open, percussive, and exotic feel that we love the most in Lateef – soul jazz taken to a very righteous territory, and one of the first powerful flowerings of the Detroit underground. Includes a really long version of "Morning", plus "Let Every Soul Say Amen", "Brazil", and "Woody N You". 60s issue of an album originally titled Yusef Lateef At Cranbrook. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover is peeled and wrinkled on about 4 inches along the spine, with a drillhole through the center.)

Lou LevyMost Musical Fella ... LP
RCA, 1956. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A strong mid 50s trio outing from west coast pianist Lou Levy – recorded under the supervision of Shorty Rogers during his time working with RCA. The set's got a harder-swinging edge than you might expect – and grooves in the manner of some of Levy's other fine mid 50s work – thanks to excellent accompaniment from Max Bennett on bass and Stan Levy on drums. Lou's work on the keys really pushes things nicely – hitting some unexpected gutbuckety tones, and working with a bluesy undercurrent that's a far cry from his west coast roots. Titles include "Apartment 17", "Yesterdays", "Angel Eyes", "Lou's Blues", "How About You", and "Woody N Lou". LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz QuartetQuartet (second cover) ... LP
Savoy, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $11.99
Early and brilliant work by the MJQ – recorded at a time when the combo's idea was quite unique, and when its execution was still filled with a lot of creative energy! The group, of course, features the core duo of Milt Jackson and John Lewis – and bass chores are handled by either Percy Heath, or Ray Brown – the latter of whom dominates the album surprisingly. Drums are mostly by Kenny Clarke, whose harder touch gave the group an edge on a lot more of these early recordings – and on a few numbers, Al Jones sits in instead of Kenny. Titles include "Love Me Pretty Baby", "D&E", "True Blues", "Yesterdays", "Round About Midnight", and "Milt Meets Sid". LP, Vinyl record album

Sam MostEast Coast Jazz 9 – I'm Nuts About The Most – Sam That Is ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Good+ ... $9.99
Sweet flute work from the great Sam Most – a player who really shone brightly during his 50s recordings for Bethlehem Records – of which this is one of the best! Sam's got a mean, lean quality to his solos – a mode that rivals that of Frank Wess on the instrument at the time, and may well beat Herbie Mann – able to step lively on more boppish numbers, but step back into these soulful lines at just the right moments. The rest of the group has a tight feel too – modern, but a bit playful too – with Marty Flax on baritone, Barry Galbraith on guitar, Billy Triglia on piano, and Oscar Pettiford on bass. Titles include "Deed I Do", "Broadway", "Smiles", "Don't Worry Bout Me", "How Deep Is The Ocean", and "Tea For Two". LP, Vinyl record album

Another of Mulligan's large Concert Jazz Band sides, with a large section of brass and reeds, mostly featuring Mulligan and trombonist Bob Brookmyer in the soloist's seat. The thing we've always dug about this group is that they move with the fluidity of a smaller ensemble, but like a middleweight fighter they still pack a heavy punch when the time comes. Six tunes: "All About Rosie", "Weep", "I Know, Don't Know How", 'Chuggin", "Summer's Over" and "Israel". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul Serrano QuintetBlues Holiday ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Very Good ... $14.99
Although you may recognize Paul Serrano's name from the production credits on countless Chicago soul LPs (on just about every label), this LP's one of the few albums that the trumpeter ever cut in the straight jazz vein. It was put together as part of the "Cannonball Adderley Presents" series for Riverside, in which Cannonball dug up obscure artists from local scenes around the US – and it was recorded in Chicago, with Bunky Green on alto, Jodie Christian on piano, Don Garrett on bass, and Pete La Roca on drums. The set grooves with a classic Chicago hard bop sound, and is a brilliant example of the kind of crossover in styles and groupings that was happening in the city around the time. Titles include Muhal Richard Abrams' "Dream Of Igor", plus "Blues Holiday", "Me Too", and "Little Niles". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Bill Grauer Productions pressing, with microphone logo and deep groove. Cover has a light crease on one corner.)

Ray Brown/Milt JacksonMuch In Common ... LP
Verve, 1964. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the first albums in what was to become a very successful pairing – the bass of Ray Brown and the vibes of Milt Jackson, working here in a down-homier setting that was miles away from his work with the MJQ! The set's got a light jazzy backing on most tracks – with some guitar from Kenny Burrell, some piano by Hank Jones, and some organ by Wild Bill Davis – and about half the tracks on the set feature vocals by gospel singer Marion Williams, singing here in a jazz/gospel style that comes across with a lot less of the hoke than you'd expect. Titles include "What Kind Of Fool Am I", "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child", "Nancy", "Much In Common", and "Gravy Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy CobhamLife & Times ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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".

Bobbi HumphreyDig This! ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Very Good- ... $19.99
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".

Verve, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Although he was the consummate high-class hipster at the start of his career, for some reason Jimmy Smith seemed to hit a forced sort of rootsy style about halfway through his years at Verve. The style worked well for him, even if it sometimes languished in bluesy tones that seemed a bit forced – and on this album, his basic trio of Grady Tate and Kenny Burrell are augmented by arrangements by Oliver Nelson. Nelson keeps things from getting too hokey, and Jimmy's organ lines are free and sharp on the best cuts. Titles include "Mustard Greens", "Hobson's Hop", "Got My Mojo Workin", and "High Heel Sneakers". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George BensonOther Side Of Abbey Road ... LP
CTI/A&M, 1969. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderfully wicked album – one that sold so many copies that it's sometimes hard to remember how great it is! George takes on all of Abbey Road – or just about all of it – as he runs through some of the most beautiful tracks The Beatles ever wrote, like "Golden Slumbers", "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", "The End", "Because", and "You Never Give Me Your Money". The whole thing's set to some great baroque jazzy arrangements by Don Sebesky, and George digs the whole thing so much that he even sings a bit – vocalizing in a cool chromatic way that really works well with his guitar playing, and which would soon transform into a very popular style on his records of the 70s. Keyboards are by Bob James and Herbie Hancock – and there's plenty of other great jazz players in the mix! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thelonious MonkThelonious In Action (2LP 180 gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1958. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic cooker from Thelonious Monk – recorded during his legendary run at the Five Spot in the late 50s, and featuring some especially great work on tenor from a young Johnny Griffin! Griffin's filling a role here that would be cemented a bit more firmly in the 60s by Charlie Rouse – but what we like about his playing here is that it's not as clearly codified "Monkish" as some of Rouse's work (even though that's all pretty darn great) – sometimes a bit more open, although still filled with angular tones and changes on this set of all-original compositions by Monk. Rhythm is by Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass and Roy Haynes on drums – and titles include "Evidence", "Epistrophy", "Blue Monk", "Rhythm-a-ning", "Light Blue", and "Coming on the Hudson".

One of the coolest albums ever from Herbie Mann – and a set that's definitely got the vibrant sound you'd expect from its title and cover! The set's a live one, and pretty open at times – and the great Rufus Harley joins Mann's group for one track – in a really mad mix of sounds that also includes lots of other exotic instrumentation too! Roy Ayers plays vibes on about half the set – and other instrumentation includes oud, dumbek, and zither – set over modal rhythms that have a very strong Eastern vibe! Titles include "Wailing Dervishes", "Flute Bag", "In the Medina", and "Armenian Lullaby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue & green label pressing.)
