Wynton KellyKelly Blue ... LP
Riverside/OJC, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A great little session from Wynton Kelly – one that has him breaking out of the lyrical roots of his trio work, and hitting some harder notes as a leader of a larger hardbop group! The album features Kelly working in both trio and sextet format – the latter with players who include Nat Adderley, Bobby Jaspar, and Benny Golson; and the former with Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb (who also play with the sextet). The sextet tracks are the ones that we really love here – as they tend to feature 2 long original numbers by Kelly – much more open than usual, and in a mode that was rarely captured as well on Wynton's albums as a leader. The trio sides are still nice too, though – although a bit more like some of his other sides – and the album features 6 tracks in all, titles that include "Kelly Blue", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "Green Dollphin Street", "Keep It Moving", and "Old Clothes".

✨✧ Benny GolsonBenny Golson's New York Scene (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Contemporary (Japan), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album recorded during the height of Benny Golson's powers as an arranger and tenor soloist! Benny leads two groups – a quintet and a nontet – both of which feature players that include Art Farmer, Wynton Kelly, Sahib Shihab, Gigi Gryce, and Paul Chambers – working with arrangements by Golson and Gryce that are very much in the spirit of Benny's classic The Modern Touch album – with a similar blend of tight conception and soulfully confident solo work! Titles include sharp arrangements of many Golson originals – like "Step Lightly", "Whisper Not", "Blues It", and "Just By Myself" – plus a good reading of Gryce's "Capri". CD

✨✧ Benny GolsonBenny Golson Quartets (Turning Point/Free) ... CD
Mercury/Gambit (Spain), 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 LPs of Benny Golson quartet sessions – 1962's Turning Point and Free – back-to-back on CD! First up is Turning Point, a beautiful album showcasing the tenor stylings of Golson in an intimate setting with Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Golson plays two originals, plus standards, and his tone is fantastic throughout! This is one of the few efforts from the period that really shows him in an open-ended jazz vein, without a focus on his arrangements – which are excellent! Titles include "Turning Point", "Stella By Starlight", "Three Little Words", "Alone Together" and "Dear Kathy". Next up is Free – another great one! The material has a beautifully confident tone, with Golson's tenor cutting, changing, and swinging perfectly in lines that are masterfully crafted, yet full of raw emotion. This quartet includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Arthur Taylor on drums – and titles inlcude "Sock Cha-Cha", "Shades Of Stein", "Just By Myself", "My Romance" and "Just In Time". CD also includes the bonus track "Impromptune" – cut in 1960 with Cedar Walton, Tommy Willams and Albert Tootie Heath. CD

Roland KirkRahsaan – Complete Mercury Recordings Of Roland Kirk (11CD set) ... CD
Mercury, 1960s/1990. Used 11CDs ... $199.99
A beautiful box set, and one that's filled with amazing material by one of our favorite players of all time! Roland Kirk's work for Mercury has always been darn tough to come by on wax, and even though a number of titles have been reissued individually over the years, this box set is still the best way to approach his early and mid 60's work for Mercury and related labels. The set's got a whopping 10 CDs in all – plus a bonus CD of unreleased stuff – and it's filled with rare material, live tracks, big band tracks, and just plain ol' great hard-wailing straight ahead material by Roland. Players on the set include Jaki Byard, Benny Golson, Wynton Kelly, Roy Haynes, Andrew Hill, Elvin Jones, and Horace Parlan. Very nice, and one you won't tire of quickly! CD

A box packed with nothing but cracking hard bop! All of Lee Morgan's seminal 50s sides for Blue Note assembled in one package, including the albums Indeed!, Volume Two, Volume Three, City Lights, the Cooker and Candy.

There's 37 tracks in all, spread out over 4 discs, including "Reggie Of Chester", "Little T", "Stand By", "Latin hangover", "D's Fink", "Slightly Hep", "Hasaan's Dream", "I Remember Clifford", "Mesabi Chant", "Domingo", "City Lights", "Kin Folks", "Heavy Dipper", "New-Ma", and "CTA".

Lee MorganLee Morgan Vol 3 ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $44.99
One of the hardest to find of the early Lee Morgan albums on Blue Note – and a very lyrical batch of hardbop tracks, played with a slightly exotic flair! Morgan's group on the date features melodic modernists Benny Golson on tenor and Gigi Gryce on alto sax – both of whom push Morgan past his youthful bop approach into more sensitive areas – especially Golson, who wrote and arranged the tunes on the date with a sublime mix of hardbop and deeper musical ideals! Rhythm is from the trio of Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums – and titles include a great reading of Golson's "I Remember Clifford", plus four other originals by Benny – "Hasaan's Dream", "Domingo", "Mesabi Chant", and "Tip Toeing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ernie HenryLast Chorus ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fitting title for a wonderful record – the last album issued under the name of altoist Ernie Henry – an amazing 50s player who recorded famously with Thelonius Monk, but only got to make a handful of his own dates before an untimely early death! The posthumous release brings together some unreleased material cut by Henry for Riverside in a few different styles – a hip octet session with Melba Liston on trombone, Benny Golson on tenor, and Lee Morgan on trumpet; a piano-less quartet date cut with Kenny Dorham on trumpet; a session with Monk on piano and Sonny Rollins on tenor; and a quartet date with Wynton Kelly on piano. Titles include "Melba's Tune", "Cleo's Chant", "Ba Lu Bolivar Ba Lues Are", "Like Someone In Love", "All The Things You Are", and "Beauty & The Blues". CD

✨✧ Blue MitchellBlue Soul (Keepnews collection with bonus tracks) ... CD
Riverside, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A strong early winner from Blue – recorded with an all-star group that includes Curtis Fuller, Jimmy Heath, Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones. Mitchell's not necessarily the leader – Benny Golson and Jimmy Heath handled the arrangements – but the group overall is great, and the set has a nice mix of lyricality and hard bop groove. 9 numbers in all, including "Minor Vamp", "The Head", "Top Shelf", "Blue Soul", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Park Avenue Petite", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Nica's Dream", and "Waverly Street". Contains 3 bonus tracks; "Mirror Vamp (take one)", "Park Avenue Petite (take one)" and "Blue Soul (take two)". CD
