Clarke Boland Big Band with Carmen McCraeNovember Girl (Black Lion pressing) ... LP
Black Lion (UK), 1970. Near Mint- ... $18.99
A rare gem from the Clarke Boland Big Band – and one of the group's few vocal sessions ever! The album's a really unique one – recorded in the UK in 1970, and featuring singer Carmen McCrae joining the group for a fresh and unusual batch of tracks – most of them originals written for the session! The CBBB is in fine fine form throughout – hard-swinging with an impossibly tight sound, and featuring solo work by Tony Coe, Sahib Shihab, and Billy Mitchell. But even more surprising is Carmen – really opening up on the record, thanks to the fresh, new material – and hitting dark moods that perfectly fit the November Girl title of the session! Titles include "Just Give Me Time", "A Handful Of Soul", "Dear Death", "My Kinda World", and "November Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thelonious MonkLondon Collection Vol 2 (180 gram clear vinyl) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
ORG/Black Lion, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 29.98
Very late work from the legendary Thelonious Monk – but surprisingly great as well! The session was recorded in London – as you might guess from the title – and although Monk's not working with his regular quartet with Charlie Rouse, he does interact wonderfully with a trio that includes Art Blakey on drums and Al McKibbon on bass! Blakey's drums have this nice crispness that transforms the Monk experience – and some performances stretch out in a nicely inspired way. Titles include "Evidence", "Misterioso", "Crepuscle With Nellie", "I Mean You", "Criss Cross", and "Ruby My Dear". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaCalling Planet Earth ... LP
Black Lion/ORG, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 24.98
Live brilliance from the Sun Ra Arkestra – a set recorded in Tivoli in 1971, with a mix of modes that has the Arkestra swinging from spiritual passages to some very outside moments as well – sometimes with a sense of texture that's extremely powerful! The first half of the set features a number of takes on "Discipline", mixed with "Love In Outer Space", "Satellites Are Spinning", and "Enlightenment" – as percussion seems higher in the mix than most other instruments, but in a very cool way. The second half features longer, more discrete tracks – including a righteous version of "Calling Planet Earth", the very outside "The Outers", and a return to rhythm on "Adventures In Outer Space".

✨✧ Jackie McLeanCapuchin Swing ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Very Good ... $29.99
A tremendous set from Jackie McLean – perfectly poised between his hardbop and modern years, with a set of compositions that are as great as the performances! The lineup on this one's a bit unusual – with Walter Bishop on piano, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – but that mix of players makes for a really unusual sound – as the rhythm section's often straight ahead, Blue Mitchell's notes are bold and sparkling, and Jackie's own solos are reaching for the darker corners of the spectrum! There's a great sense of tension here that heralds the genius of later McLean sides of the 60s – and original titles include "Francisco", "Condition Blue", "On The Lion", and "Capuchin Swing".

Leo ParkerRollin With Leo ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Sealed ... $9.99
One of those great "never was" Blue Note sessions – recorded in the 60s, but never issued until years later – even though the label had assigned it a cover, title, and catalog number! The album was the last session by baritone sax player Leo Parker – a bop and R&B legend who sadly passed along at the young age of 36, but left a really rich legacy of music. Parker has a way with the baritone that's almost as lean as a tenorist – blowing the horn with sharp, well-placed notes that really make this session cook – somewhere in the R&B-influenced territory of Don Wilkerson's work on Blue Note. Other players include the great Dave Burns on trumpet – always a welcome presence on any date – plus Bill Swindell on tenor sax, Johnny Acea on piano, Al Lucas or Stan Conover on bass, and Wilbert Hogan or Purnell Rice on drums. Tracks include "The Lion's Roar", "Rollin With Leo", "Jumpin Leo", "Talkin The Blues", "Mad Lad Returns", and Illinois Jacquet's "Music Hall Beat". LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie RoachDown To Earth ... LP
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $69.99
A tremendous album from organist Freddie Roach – arguably his best record ever for Blue Note, and a really wonderful session! The set's got Freddie opening up in a slightly hipper groove than on some of his more R&B-influenced sides – working with a quartet that includes Percy France on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Clarence Johnston on drums. Tracks are longish, with some really great rhythms – and show Freddie moving past straight Hammond grooving, into a more righteous mode that would emerge even more on his albums for Prestige. 6 tracks in all, and the titles include "De Bug", "Ahm Miz", "Althea Soon", and "Lion Down".

✨✧ Grover Washington JrFeels So Good ... LP
Kudu, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully soulful lines over the top on soprano sax! The album's got some really wonderful funk tracks that feature a mad mix of drums, bass, and lots of that Bob James "space" – including the massive cuts "Hydra" and "Knucklehead" – both of them magic! Other tracks include "Moonstreams", "It Feels So Good", and "The Sea Lion". LP, Vinyl record album

Barney WilenZodiac ... LP
Vogue/Be! (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of the coolest albums ever from French saxophonist Barney Wilen – a set that's legendary not only for its famous cover image, but for all the wonderful music underneath! The record's maybe the strongest to deliver on the modern promise that Wilen exhibited in his music during the 60s – but also has a tightness that makes it quite different from some of his more loopy projects – a way of putting things together that's bold and modern, yet also wonderfully controlled as well! As you might guess from the title, the record's based around the twelve phases of the Zodiac – and each tune has a slightly different sense of energy – all delivered by Wilen on tenor, with Karl Berger on vibes and piano, JF Jenny Clark on bass, and Jacques Thollot on drums – all players who are reaching towards free jazz modes, but often hang slightly inside, which makes for a beautiful balance overall. Titles include "Cancer", "Lion", "Vierge", "Capricorne", "Balance", "Scorpion", and "Poissons". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kenny DrewUndercurrent (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever by pianist Kenny Drew – a record that's as noteworthy for the contributions of the sidemen as it is for the efforts of the leader! Drew's a player who often worked mostly in trio formats – but here, he's hitting hard with a righteous Blue Note power – thanks to the presence of Hank Mobley on tenor and Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, both of whom really give the record an edge! Drew's lyrical sensibilities are shifted to darker, more modern moments at times – and the rest of the group features Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. An essential addition to the Blue Note legacy of Mobley and Hubbard – and the set's filled with original tunes by Kenny, including "The Pot's On", "Undercurrent", "Funk-Cosity", and "Lion's Den".

Jimmy ClevelandIntroducing Jimmy Cleveland & His All Stars ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Sealed ... $9.99
An early leader session for Jimmy Cleveland – one that pulls him out of the Lionel Hampton group, and puts him in the company of a number of different all-stars – top level players that Mercury brought together in three different sessions for the album. Players include Lucky Thompson, Cecil Payne, Barry Galbraith, Wade Legge, Paul Chambers, and Jerome Richardson – and it's the quality of the ensemble grooving that really makes the album swing, a lot more than Cleveland's solos on his own. Titles include "Vixen", "Hear Ye Hear Ye", "See Minor", "Bone Brother", "Count 'Em", and "Little Beaver". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneMy Favorite Things ... LP
Atlantic, 1961. Very Good ... $24.99
Wonderful wonderful wonderful work from the legendary John Coltrane – and even though it's probably one of his best-selling albums of all time, it's still a treasure – and has an essential place in just about any jazz collection! We've heard the original title version of "My Favorite Things" a million times – but it still blows our mind the way Coltrane hits this incredibly soulful modal groove, twisting and turning on soprano sax, always keeping things interesting, so that we're surprised that the cut's 13 minutes have gone by so quickly! The rest of the record's equally great – and the 3 other long cuts are "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Summertime" and "But Not for Me". As great today as when it was cut, and still one of Coltrane's most revelatory albums! With McCoy Tyner on piano, Steve Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny DoddsNew Orleans Clarinet ... LP
Riverside, 1920s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Seminal recordings of the trad clarinetist, recorded in Chicago in a variety of settings, mostly smaller bluesy groups of the sort that were inhabiting the south and west sides of town. Like Louis Armstrong, he supplanted his New Orleans style to Chicago, meshing it with the urban black musics that would become the roots of jazz. A dozen numbers in all, recorded with Jasper Taylor's State Street Boys, Junie Cobb's Hometown Band, Viola Bartlette, Blind Blake, the State Street Rqamblers and Lovie Austin's Blues Serenaders, including "It Must Be The Blues", "State Street Blues", "East Coast Trot", "Chicago Buzz", "Walk Easy 'Cause My Papa's Here", 'Southbound Rag", "Bohunkus Blues", "Buddy Burton's Jazz", "Cootie Stomp", "Weary Way Blues", "Chicago Mess Around" and "Gallion Stomp".

Lionel HamptonHallelujah Hamp ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
One of Lionel Hampton's great small combo sides for Verve from the 50s – done mostly with accompaniment from a trio of Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich – plus the addition of guitar from Herb Ellis on a few of the album's shorter tracks. It's the longer ones that are really the best, though – loose takes of "Tenderly", "Hamp's Boogie Woogie", and "Hallelujah" that really get at the inventive power of Hampton during his ever-popular live dates. Shorter tunes are nice too, but a bit less compelling – and titles include "A Foggy Day" and "Honeysuckle Rose". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great reason why Lionel Hampton on Verve is so great – especially on small combo dates like this! The set not only has a wonderful cover – with Hamp dressed up like royalty – but also features his vibes in a very open setting – alongside piano from Oscar Peterson, bass from Ray Brown, and drums from Buddy Rich! The tunes are quite long, and filled with evocative solos from Hamp – really stretched out and creatively constructed – with speed and timing on the vibes that stands out even more here than on some of his more bombastic sessions. Titles include "Don't Be That Way", "S Wonderful", "Always", and "These Foolish Things". LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel HamptonOff Into A Black Thing ... LP
Brunswick, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the hippest albums ever cut by Lionel Hampton – a badass batch of 70s funk tunes, recorded with arrangements from the Chicago powerhouse team at Brunswick Records! Lionel's vibes are mixed with tight drums, sweet bass, and some very soulful arrangements that make even the mellower tracks feel like they've been lifted from some lost blacksploitation soundtrack. Includes great versions of 2 Willie Henderson tunes – "Off Into A Black Thing" and "Funky Chicken", both of which sound even better than the originals with the vibes in place – plus the tracks "Easy", "Shut Your Mouth", "I Found Sunshine", and "One Man Band". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Rich/Lionel HamptonTransition ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
A mixed bag of work from Buddy and Hamp – part straight jazz, and part sweet electric funk! The first two-thirds of the album features Rich and Hampton with Terry Wilson on piano, Zoot Sims on tenor, and George Duvivier on bass – grooving hard in that open-ended way of some of Hampton's small group dates for Verve from the early 50s, on titles that include "Avalon", "Ring Dem Bells", "Ham Hock Blues", and "Air Mail Special". The last third of the album features a larger group – still with Rich and Hampton, but also with some keyboards from Kenny Barron, plus tenor by Sal Nistico and guitar from Jack Wilson. The vibe on these tracks is a bit more 70s-styled – with some of the soaring electric modes you might expect from Groove Merchant! Titles include "EG" and "Fum" – both great funky numbers!

Tommy TurrentineTommy Turrentine ... LP
Time, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the most fantastic hardbop albums of all time! Tommy Turrentine was the less-famous trumpet-playing brother of Stanley Turrentine – but he was a hell of a player in his early days, and he cut some amazing records with his brother during the younger years of his career. This is the only record we've ever seen that features him as a leader – but the session's a monster, with the kind of razor-sharp hardbop playing we'd stack up there with must-have LPs like Art Blakey's Freedom Rider, Hank Mobley's Caddy For Daddy, or the legendary Young Lions session on Vee Jay. The group features a number of players who were working with Max Roach at the time – including Stanley Turrentine on tenor and Julian Priester on trombone – as well as Roach on drums, Horace Parlan on piano, and Bob Boswell on bass. Titles include "Gunga Din", "Too Clean", "Time's Up", "Long As You're Living", "Blues For JP", and "Webb City". LP, Vinyl record album

Red (Italy), 1985. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A great summation of all the growth, talent, and creativity that Cedar Walton had hit by the 80s – a record that draws on both his trio work and his larger projects like the Eastern Rebellion quartet – done with a vibe that's somewhere in the best space of both! The group here is a quintet – with old Jazz Messenger-mate Curtis Fuller on trombone and Bob Berg on tenor – as well as the rhythm team of David Williams on bass and Billy Higgins on drums. The range of players, ideas, and voices gives the record a really rich finish – but one that's till quite open and spontaneous, given the live setting of the recording. Titles include "Cedar's Blues", "Over The Rainbow", "Ugetsu", "Fiesta Espanola", and "Insight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

Cedar Walton with Abbey LincolnMaestro ... LP
Muse, 1980. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A very unusual set for Cedar – one that has him working with vocalist Abbey Lincoln, in a session that marks a high point for both of them at the time! Cedar's group on the set is in a very Eastern Rebellion mode – with Bob Berg on tenor, Billy Higgins on drums, and David Williams on bass – and Abbey joins the group on 4 of the album's 8 tracks – the best of which are original numbers that feature a freshly inventive vocal style that really makes the album something special. Abbey sings some great lyrics to her originals "Castles" and "Not In Love" – as well as Cedar's excellent "The Maestro", a tune dedicated to the late Ellington. And the band grooves nicely on versions of Jobim's "Sabia", plus "Blue Monk" and "On The Trail". LP, Vinyl record album

Yipes! This one made everyone a bucket of money – especially Quincy Jones, whose new Qwest imprint the record was one of the first to grace. George has come a long way from his roots with Jack McDuff here – but in a way that kind of has us impressed, as he's grooving away slickly on guitar, laying down some smooth vocals that we never would have imagined from his mid 60s recordings. Includes the massive hit "Give Me The Night", a cover of "Moody's Mood", and the tracks "Star Of A Story (X)", "Midnight Love Affair", "What's On Your Mind", and "Dinorah, Dinorah". The sound of a million supermarkets and elevators during the 80s! LP, Vinyl record album

The groove ranges from mellow funk to gentle soul – and the album's title track is an excellent version of "It's A Funky Thing To Do", with Pee Wee Ellis joining the group on electric piano! Other tracks include "Hills Of Love", "You're The One", "Sophisticated Soul", "Kingsize Man", and "Parker's Mood". LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album of tight little instrumentals – one that features the combination of Lionel Hampton's vibes with the groovy Chicago soul production of Brunswick Records! The tracks bounce along nicely, as if they were soul instrumental 45s for Brunswick – almost more along the line of the label's work with Young Holt Unlimited, but with vibes instead of piano – and Hampton maybe sounds better here than he had in years on previous recordings! The approach is very hip – a great blend of soul, jazz, and funk – and titles include "Stop, I Don't Need No Sympathy", "I Wish It Was Me", "It's Time For Peace", "You Wouldn't Believe", and "Turn Back The Hands Of Time".

EMI/Vocalion (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most compelling albums ever recorded by British alto genius Joe Harriott – a very unusual record that has him working with guitarist Amanico D'Silva, in a style that's got some wonderful modal undertones! The feel here is a bit like Harriott's work with Michael Garrick – minus piano, of course – as he and D'Silva work through some tunes that are long, filled with complicated rhythms, yet still have a magically dancing sound. The mood shifts a bit from track to track – as Norma Winstone comes in for wordless vocals on two numbers, and Ian Carr blows a bit on one tune – and there's one short track on the record that only features Harriott's alto next to a bit of drums. Great stuff all around – with titles that include "NNNT", "Hum Donon", "Jaipur", "Stephano's Dance", and "Ballad For Goa". LP, Vinyl record album

The focus here is on long drawn-out bluesy material, with the sort of relaxed swinging style that Verve handled so well. Other players include Ben Webster, Lionel Hampton, Oscar Peterson, and Roy Eldridge – and titles include "Cool Your Motor", "Jam Blues", "Blues A Plenty", and "Honey Hill".
