Chick CoreaChick Corea (Blue Note Re-issue Series) ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
A great collection of Chick's work for Blue Note and Solid State – recorded at a key time in his career, one that's almost lost to the history books! The tracks are from the years 1968 to 1970 – a time when Chick was coming off of work in the Latin and soul jazz underground, and before he blew up to big Scientology fame. The overall feel is a mixture of arch-modern piano and some more open-ended spiritual soul jazz – and players include Woody Shaw, Hubert Laws, Roy Haynes, and Benny Maupin, as well as his partners in the group Circle, Dave Holland and Barry Altschul. Titles include "Matrix", "Jamala", "Nefertiti", "Is", "This", and "Now He Sings Now He Sobs". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie McLeanJackie McLean Quintet (Blue Note) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1962. Used ... $11.99
A great little session by Jackie McLean – recorded in 1962 by Blue Note, but not issued until years later, only initially in Japan! The album's one of Jackie's last pure hardbop sides – recorded in the pivotal year of 1962, when he was just beginning to dip his toe into modernist ideas – and inflect his straighter work with some beautiful shifts, twists, and turns that skirted the fringes of modern jazz wonderfully. There's a vibe here that's totally great – one that has McLean breaking away from the pack and working in one of the freshest voices in jazz at the time. Players include Kenny Dorham on trumpet and Sonny Clark on piano – and tracks include "Three Minors", "Marilyn's Dilemma", "Iddy Bitty", and "Blues For Jackie". CD

Lee MorganComplete Blue Note Lee Morgan Fifties Sessions (4CD set) ... CD
Mosaic/Blue Note, 1950s/1995. Used 4CD ... $129.99
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".

Blue Note, 1956. Used ... $6.99
One of Lee Morgan's beautiful early sets for Blue Note – and proof that he was emerging as a youthful lyricist even in his hardbop days! The group on the session is a sextet – with rock-solid Hank Mobley on tenor, Horace Silver on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Charlie Persip on drums – plus the highly obscure Kenny Rodgers on alto – making his only Blue Note appearance ever! As on Morgan's third album for Blue Note, most of the tracks are composed by Benny Golson – perfectly penned numbers that maintain a hardbop swing, but which let Morgan explore things with a bit more depth than on some of his sessions for Savoy! Titles include "Slightly Hep", "D's Fink", "Whisper Not", and "Latin Hangover". CD

QuasimodeMode Of Blue – Quasimode Plays Blue Note ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2009. Used ... $13.99
The Blue Note debut of one of our favorite contemporary combos – a set that has Quasimode taking on a host of classics from the label's catalog of the 60s! Given the already-soulful sound of Quasimode on other records, the setting is a perfect one – tunes that are a perfect showcase for their mix of modal rhythms and sharp-edged solo sounds! The group's expanded a bit on some tracks by the presence of guests – but the core instrumentation features tenor, trumpet, piano, and lots of great percussion – all used to come up with a host of great club jazz-styled rhythms. Valerie Etienne sings guest vocals on a version of "Little B's Poem" – and other titles include "No Room For Squares", "Congalere", "Ghana", "The Loner", "Afrodisia", "On Children", "Night Dreamer", "African Village", "Sayonara Blues", and the group's own "Mode Of Blue".

Lalo SchifrinIns & Outs – Lalo Live At The Blue Note ... CD
Aleph, 1982/2002. Used ... $3.99
The first two tracks are from a live date recorded at the Blue Note in 2002. Ins & Outs is a great return to form for Lalo Schifrin – and a straight album of jazz tunes, recorded after years of late 70s disco work! The album almost returns Schifrin to his 60s years with Dizzy Gillespie (except for the fact that there's no trumpet on the set) – and the tunes have a great mix of jazz, Latin, and soundtrack influences – of the sort that first got Lalo noticed back in the early days! Lalo's playing acoustic piano throughout – and pretty nicely, too we might add – and titles include "Chano", "Ritual","Ins & Outs", "Con Alma", "Manteca", "Paraphrase", "The Fox", and "Love Poem For Donna".

Blue Note (Italy), 1960s. New Copy 11CD ... $49.99
An incredible run of music from the legendary Wayne Shorter – 11 full albums for Blue Note Records, each presented here in a tiny LP-styled sleeve! Shorter on Blue Note is the stuff of legend – already a stellar leader on his first three records for the label – Night Dreamer, Juju, and Speak No Evil – then one who really broke out even further, with a range of experimental modes to follow! Shorter's not just a hell of a musician – his solos here are sublime throughout – but also an extremely inventive writer and arranger, one who brings out tremendous performances from all his many sidemen on the sessions – a lineup that includes Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan on trumpets, Herbie Hancock and McCoy Tyner on piano, James Spaulding on alto and flute, Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones and Tony Williams on drums, and even a bit of guitar from a young John McLaughlin! Box includes the full albums Night Dreamer, Juju, Speak No Evil, The Soothsayer, Etcetera, All Seeing Eye, Adam's Apple, Schizophrenia, Super Nova, Moto Grosso Feio, and Odyssy Of Iska. CD

Jeri SouthernBlue Note, Chicago – March 1956 ... CD
Uptown, 1956. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
Great small group work from singer Jeri Southern – a group so small, the set also features the vocalist on piano! If you only know some of Jeri's more fully-produced albums of the 50s and 60s, you'll really be surprised here – as the singer works in a great small club setting with this open, personal approach that rivals the hipper jazz singers of the time – territory that hipper listeners always knew Southern could hit, even though her records of the period didn't get that far! The strength of her piano work is quite a surprise, as is her ability to really open up her vocals – and the package presents a full club performance for the first time ever, with backing from Al Bruno on bass and Dominic Simonetta on drums. Titles include "Every Time", "You Better Go Now", "I'm In Love With The Honorable Mr So & So", "Dancing On The Ceiling", "Scarlet Ribbons", "When I Fall In Love", "September In The Rain", and "Miss Johnson Phoned Again Today".

Blue Note, 1959. Used ... $9.99
Killer work from the classic late 50s years of the Jazz Messengers – and an album that Blue Note didn't choose to release until the end of the 70s! The record's a historic one – as it mark's Wayne Shorter's first session with the group, and the first time that they recorded his great composition "Lester Left Town" – a wonderful tune that sounds a bit different here than on the later Jazz Messengers recording of the composition. Shorter's talent is already burning brightly at this point – as is that of trumpeter Lee Morgan – and other group members include Walter Davis Jr on piano, Jymie Merritt on bass, and Blakey on drums. Titles include "Lester Left Town", "Haina", "The Midget", "Celine", and "Africaine", which has a guest appearance by Dizzy Reece on congas! CD

Art BlakeyBuhaina's Delight ... CD
Blue Note, 1961. Used ... $4.99
A landmark recording by a whole new chapter in Art Blakey's career! During the early 60s, Blakey expanded the Jazz Messengers from a quintet to an incredibly tight sextet – adding in the trombone of Curtis Fuller for an extra-punched up frontline that also included Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Wayne Shorter on tenor, who had returned to the group after a short departure. The band was augmented by the wonderfully lyrical and soulful piano of a young Cedar Walton – who brought a strong degree of sophistication, and who was a perfect interpreter of Shorter's rich writing talents. The whole group performs together perfectly on this wonderful (and oft-overlooked) session – especially on the tracks "Shaky Jake", "Backstage Sally", and "Bu's Delight". This CD has four bonus tracks: alternate takes of "Moon River", "Backstage Sally", "Reincarnation Blues" and "Bu's Delight". CD

Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
Hardly a free for all at all – as the album's a masterpiece of focus and direction, and a classic set from the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers! The album's a real feather in the mid-60s cap of Art Blakey –and features an expanded sound from the quintet era of his group – with a sublime horn lineup that features Wayne Shorter on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Curtis Fuller on trombone – all gliding along these soaring piano lines from Cedar Walton! Reggie Workman works some real magic on bass, too – and the tracks are all very long – with titles that include "Free For All" and "Hammer Head" – both written by Shorter – plus "The Core", by Hubbard, and a beautiful version of Clare Fischer's "Pensativa".

Cedar Walton's on piano, and his lyrical comping brings the band to new soulful heights. Tracks include "The Egyptian", "Sortie", "Calling Miss Khadija", and "Mr. Jin".

One of the greatest Art Blakey albums from the days when the Jazz Messengers lineup included Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, and Bobby Timmons! The whole set's a perfect example of the blend of lyricism and fire that Blakey and this group could craft – from the magical poetry of their interpretation of "Like Someone In Love", to the wealth of original tunes like "Noise In The Attic", "Giantis", "Johnny's Blue", and "Sleeping Dancer Sleep On" – all of which went onto be the blueprint for the sound of the second wave of hardbop at Blue Note!

Blue Note, 1961. Used ... $5.99
A blinding session by Blakey! Truly one of his all-time great ones, and a record we've been putting on the turntable for 20 years, still always with new delight! The session was recorded in 1961 – when Blakey was working with Bobby Timmons, Lee Morgan, and Wayne Shorter (who's especially fantastic here!) For some incredibly odd reason, the session was not issued at the time – and only came out briefly at the end of the 60s. It's amazing, though – and features a set of stunning tracks that will forever restore your faith in jazz, even at your darkest moments. Includes "Ping Pong", "Roots & Herbs", "Master Mind", "Look At the Birdie", and "United". Plus, this CD reissue features 3 bonus cuts – all alternate takes of titles on the album! CD

Blue Note, 1961. Very Good+ ... $39.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – but a set that was unreleased by Blue Note for quite a few years! The set's one of two gems the group recorded in 1961, but which were held back until the end of the 60s – and it features a stellar version of the group with Wayne Shorter on tenor, Lee Morgan on trumpet, and Bobby Timmons on piano – all wonderful players who were really coming into their own at the time, and starting to bring a richness to the Messengers sound that would leave its mark in jazz for many years to come! The group is razor-sharp on the rhythms, but also really able to take new chances with their phrasing and timing – on a host of wonderful tracks that include "Those Who Sit & Wait", "The Witch Doctor", and "A Little Busy" – all real classics from this special group.

Terence BlanchardBreathless ... CD
Blue Note, 2015. Used ... $7.99
Terence Blanchard in all his many moods – some funky, some somber, and some quite serious! The album begins with a remake of "Compared To What" – done with vocals from PJ Morton, and fueled by rhythm samples from the original Les McCann and Eddie Harris version – but the music then shifts into work that recalls the sophistication of Blanchard's soundtrack material – some great mellower cuts that have Terence's trumpet gliding out spaciously over guitar from Charles Altra and piano and keyboards from Fabian Almazan. Morton makes a few more returns on the record – bringing things up to more soul-based territory at points – and Dr Cornel West appears on one track too, as a way of furthering the righteous quality of the record. Titles include "Everglades", "See Me As I Am", "Talk To Me", "Tom & Jerry", "I Ain't Got Nothin But Time", "Cosmic Warrior", "Soldiers", "Compared To What", and "Shutting Down". CD

Blue Note, 1964. Very Good+ ... $99.99
A masterpiece from George Braith – one of the most unique sax players of the 60s! The album's a Blue Note classic in the Larry Young vein – with lots of free spiralling modal lines, and heavenly solos on organ, guitar, and reeds – the former of which are played by Billy Gardner and Grant Green. Braith's playing is incredible – slightly exotic, but also quite soulful – in a vein that recalls Yusef Lateef and Roland Kirk, but which also has a strong voice of its own. Braith plays tenor, soprano, and alto sax on the set – and the album is filled with groovy modal tracks like "Nut City", "Sweetville", and "Extension". Very very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note/Mosaic, 1950s. Used 3CD ... $49.99
An incredible collection of work from Bob Brookmeyer – tracing the development of his sound in the 50s through a variety of different settings! The package begins with material from an original 10" LP session in 1954 – featuring Brookmeyer on trombone with backing by the John Williams trio. The set then expands to feature tracks recorded by Brookmeyer, Jim Hall, and Jimmy Giuffre as material that was originally issued on the album Traditionalism Revisited, but which also features tracks from that session that came out on other more obscure sources, including a Playboy jazz album and a Brookmeyer LP on Crown. The set then follows with a beautiful guitar/trombone session that features Jim Hall, Jimy Raney, and Brookmeyer – originally issued as The Street Swingers. Next up is material from a bluesy 1958 set, recorded with vocalist Big Miller, as well as Paul Quinichette, Al Cohn, and Jim Hall – for the album Kansas City Revisited. The set's completed by material from the beautiful UA album Stretching Out – which featured Zoot Sims, Harry Edison, and Al Cohn – and the whole thing's packaged with a great booklet that gives notes on the material. 37 tracks in all – in a limited, numbered set!

One of those rare Blue Note sessions from tenorist Tina Brooks – originally recorded for the label in 1960, but never issued at the time – yet easily on a par with their more famous work of the period! Brooks' horn has a nice hard edge here – that sharp-edged modernism you'd hear with Jackie McLean, who makes a key appearance here on the album's famous "Street Singer" track. Jackie's not on the rest of the record, but that's fine with us – because other players are all equally great, and include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Kenny Drew on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Apart from "Street Singer", other titles include "The Ruby & The Pearl", "Back To The Tracks", "For Heaven's Sake", and "The Blues & I". CD

A great little live set – not just for the always-great guitar of Kenny Burrell, still sounding wonderful here on his 75th birthday – but also for the big band arrangements of Gerald Wilson, which back Kenny up on half of the album! Wilson's in great form here – stepping along with the full-yet-spacious sound that he first crafted back in the 60s – an approach that set a whole new standard for big band work at the time, and which provides a wonderful surprise here – making the album truly the sort of special event hinted at by the title! Some of the later tracks on the album feature Kenny playing in smaller group modes – a few trio tracks, one with Joey DeFrancesco on organ, one with Hubert Laws on flute – and a pair of septet numbers with Laws, DeFrancesco, and Herman Riley on tenor sax. Titles include "Viva Tirado", "Love You Madly", "Romance", "Night In Tunisia", "Lament", "All Blues", "Take The A Train", "Footprints", and "Stormy Monday/Blues For The Count". CD
