✨✧ Beau Hunks Saxophone SoctetteBeau Hunks Saxophone Soctette ... CD
Basta (Netherlands), Late 30s/1999. Used ... $9.99
A great set of new recordings by this Dutch jazz combo dedicated to reproducing the wilder saxophone sounds of the early swing era! The Beau Hunks group focuses here on a tasty batch of material by Raymond Scott, Irving Berlin, Bix Beiderbecke, and other 30s composers – and the set features 7 rare arrangments done for Paul Whiteman's late 30's Sax Soc-tette. There's a very strong, very cartoony horn sound right up front – and tracks include "Crinoline Days", "What'll I Do?", "In A Mist", "Do Something", and "The Toy Trumpet". Great package, too! CD

XMarsXXMarsX ... CD
Atavistic, 2002. Used ... $5.99
A Chicago avant jazz supergroup – featuring Mars Williams on saxes, Kent Kessler on bass, Greg Suran on guitar, Wayne Kramer on guitar, David Suycott on drums and effects, and Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello. The approach here certainly shows a lot of Williams' sides – fast and frenetic jamming, slower and more soulful playing – with an overall approach that's tightly scripted, and not nearly as free as you might expect. Titles include "Unstuck", "The Finger", "The Worm", "Punch The Monkey", "Floaty", and "Rat Bastard". CD

✨✧ Gene AmmonsNothin' But Soul (Up Front) ... LP
Winley/Up Front, Early 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very nice record, and one of the rarer sides by Gene Ammons. We can't remember the exact story behind this, but we know that the material was recorded by Jug during the early 60's, when he was violating his contractual agreements with a number of labels, and recording sessions for just about everybody. Paul Winley caught him then, and put him in the studio with Howard McGhee and guitarist Jake Fisher, for this cool laidback soul jazz session that's probably one of Jug's most open-ended from the time. The tracks are all long, with a lot of room for solo space, and a round mellow tone. Winley has his name on all of the writing credits, which is probably false (the lying bastard!), and titles include "Housewarmin", "Nothin' But Soul", and "Jug & McGhee". LP, Vinyl record album
