Jimmy ClevelandCleveland Style ... LP
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Quite possibly the best of Cleveland's albums for Mercury during the 50s – a tight hardbop set of tracks recorded with a septet that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Benny Golson on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, and Charlie Persip on drums. Tracks are more open-ended than on some of Cleveland's other albums, with more room for soloing. Titles include "Posterity", "A Jazz Ballad", "Jimmie's Tune", "Long Ago & Far Away", and "Goodbye Ebbets Field". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label EmArcy pressing with drummer logo and deep groove.)

Curtis FullerAll Star Sextets ... LP
Savoy, 1959. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Outstanding early work from Curtis Fuller, leading a smoking small group through bop and hard bop numbers in a modernist mode like some of the best Jazztet sides Art Farmer and Benny Golson would go on to cut a few years later. Golson's featured here alongside Fuller in the front line, with either Lee Morgan or Thad Jones on trumpet, and the group filled out with a batch of top notch sidemen in the rhythm section as the title implies: Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, Charlie Persip, Mcoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Dave Bailey. Some of the best bop sides issued on Savoy, and among the hardest to find, too! Includes "It's All Right With Me", "Arabia", "I'll Walk Alone", "Judy's Dilemma", "Wheatleigh Hall", "Kachin", "Bang Bang", "Imagination", "Blues De Funk" and "Lido Road". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker, a cut corner, a small peeled spot from price sticker removal, and some light wear.)

Benny GolsonBenny Golson's New York Scene ... LP
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good- ... $34.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – yellow label with deep groove. Vinyl is clean, with light marks. Cover is intact, but has light wear and a bit of an old piece of paperback cover taped to the spine.)

Charlie Persip & His Jazz StatesmenDouble Or Nothin ... CD
Liberty (Japan), 1957. Used ... $9.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by crack drummer Charlie Persip – and a great record that you might have missed because Howard Rumsey's name is bigger on the cover than Charlie's! The album's one of Rumsey's "Lighthouse Series" sides of the 50s – but it's a lot harder-driving and more energy-filled than most of the other Lighthouse-related sides coming out of LA at the time. Half the record features Charlie's group – a set of east coasters that includes Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, and Wynton Kelly – and the other part features some of the players from that ensemble mixing it up with drummer Stan Levey and other LA talents that include Frank Rosolino, Conte Candoli, Bob Cooper, and others. In all, the album's a great meeting of east and west coast hardbop styles – with short driving tracks that include "Reggie Of Chester", "Celedia", "Moto", "The Champ", and "Wildwood". CD

✨✧ Benny GolsonBenny Golson Quartets (Free/Turning Point) ... CD
Poll Winners Records, 1962. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Wynton KellyKelly Blue ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Lee MorganComplete Blue Note Lee Morgan Fifties Sessions (4CD set) ... CD
Mosaic/Blue Note, 1950s/1995. Used 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. Morgan's quite young on these sessions, but his voice is fully formed and he plays with fire throughout, as do the sidemen, who include Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, Benny Golson, Gigi Gryce, Bobby Timmons, Philly Joe Jones, Art Taylor, Sonny Clark, Curtis Fuller, and Wynton Kelly. 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". CD

✨✧ Lee MorganLee Morgan Vol 3 (RVG remaster edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Blue MitchellBlue Soul (Keepnews collection with bonus tracks) ... CD
Riverside, 1959. New Copy ... 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
(Please note there is a cutout hole through the case.)
