Miles DavisAt Last – Miles Davis & The Lighthouse All Stars ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1953. Used ... $5.99
Quite an unusual moment in west coast jazz history – one tremendous night at the legendary Lighthouse nightclub, that featured performances by both Chet Baker and Miles Davis! Chet and Miles didn't play in the same group, but both graced the same bandstand on the same night – working through a shifting lineup of personnel in what was a "showdown" of sorts – especially since Chet had just beat Miles out in the 1953 Downbeat poll! Most of this issue is actually Miles playing with the Lighthouse group, which includes Bob Cooper, Howard Rumsey, Bud Shank and Max Roach who also gets a moment to shine on his solo "Drum Conversation" – and other titles include "At Last", "Infinity Promenade", "Round Midnight" and "Night In Tunisia".

Gerry Mulligan QuartetOn The Road – Live In California ... CD
Giant Steps (UK), Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
A great assortment of rare live material from Gerry Mulligan's groundbreaking piano-less years – tracks recorded between 1952 and 1954, in groups with either Chet Baker or Jon Eardley on trumpet! Tracks include 5 from a 1952 date at the Blackhawk in San Francisco, 15 more from The Haig in LA in 1953 (including a few with Lee Konitz on alto) – plus even more obscure dates at Stockton High School in 1954 and Hoover High School in San Diego from the same year! Chico Hamilton plays drums on all the high school dates, and the sound is surprisingly good – with the right sort of crispness to make Gerry's unique approach come through perfectly! 2CD set features a whopping 35 tracks that include "Line For Lyons", "Carioca", "Utter Chaos", "Bark For Barksdale", "Lover Man", "Bernie's Tune", "Funhouse", "Ida's Side", "Five Brothers", "Get Happy", "Poinciana", "Blues For Tiny", "Limelite", "Nights At The Turntable", "Ontet", "Soft Shoe", and "Piano Blues".
