Vi ReddBird Call (United Artists) ... LP
United Artists, 1963. Very Good ... $32.99
An excellent bit of early 60s soulbop – and one of two rare albums ever cut by the obscure female alto player Vi Redd, one of the few women sax players of her generation to get recorded! The album's got an easygoing groove that's mighty nice – a touch of R&B at times, but not nearly as much as you'd hear on Redd's other record for Atlantic – thanks to a sensitive jazz-based presentation by a group that also features a young Roy Ayers on vibes, making his first-ever appearance on record! Other players include Herb Ellis on guitar and Russ Freeman on piano – plus Kansas Lawrence on trumpet, who's clearly a bigger-name player working under another name. Vi sings on the record, in addition to playing alto sax – in this laidback way that's a bit like Trudy Pitts – and although the record's billed as a tribute to Charlie Parker, it's got a lot more going on than that! Tracks include "Summertime", "Old Folks", "Just Friends", "Now's The Time", "Anthropology", and "Cool Blues Perhaps". LP, Vinyl record album

Gato BarbieriLast Tango In Paris (2CD expanded edition) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... $25.99
One of the greatest moments ever from saxophonist Gato Barbieri – and that's saying a lot, given that by the time of this recording, he'd already had a great 60s run as an avant jazz musician, and started the 70s with a string of albums that criss-crossed jazz and South American musical styles! Yet Last Tango In Paris may well be Barbieri's crowning achievement – a sublime record that draws on all the richer, more emotive themes of his Latin America projects, but gives them new focus in the arrangements of Oliver Nelson – who ensures that the music is never too cheesy or overdone – quite a feat, given the sexy setting of the film! Gato draws a lot from Argentine tango, but often uses his own sax solos in place of a more familiar bandoneon – in a way that pushes the "new tango" mode of the time even farther – especially when set amidst Nelson's wonderful orchestrations. Titles include many versions of the "Last Tango" theme, plus the tracks "Girl In Black", "Jeanne", "Why Did She Choose You?", "It's Over", and "Fake Ophelia". Fantastic 2CD version – with the full film score recording, plus the original album as well. (Soundtracks, Jazz) CD

Bob Brookmeyer & Bill EvansIvory Hunters – Double Barrelled Piano ... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $13.99
A compelling album of twin-piano lines – one in which Bill Evans and Bob Brookmeyer play head-to-head, in a spiraling modernist style that brings out the best in each player! Although Brookmeyer's best known as a trombonist, he's pretty great here on piano – and the album's a real treasure from his legendary late 50s years – a time when Bob was really opening up tremendously in his music! The album separates out the players via stereo – with Bill Evans in the right channel and Brookmeyer in the left – and the format usually has one player in a rhythm groove while the other solos over the top. The bass of Percy Heath and drums of Connie Kay complete the group – and titles include longish versions of "As Time Goes By", "I Got Rhythm", "The Man I Love", and "The Way You Look Tonight". CD

Benny CarterAspects (aka Jazz Calendar) ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good ... $19.99
A real corker from Benny Carter's revival period at the end of the 50s – a large group session recorded with a very strong horn section, arranged and produced by Benny himself! The album's got a "calendar" gimmick – in that each of the 12 songs feature a month in the name – but you've gotta thank Benny for getting past that simple trick and keeping things real with an unobtrusive title and cover – and some extremely strong arrangements that cook nicely no matter what the tune! Titles include "Swingin In November", "Something For October", "August Moon", "March Wind", and "February Fiesta". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneColtrane Time ... LP
United Artists, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
This is a repackaged version of an album that was originally issued under Cecil Taylor's name, under the title Hard Drive (and later Stereo Drive, or something like that). The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane – in a group that includes Kenny Dorham, Chuck Israels, and Louis Hayes. The music is a startling mix of styles – as Taylor's heavy piano clashes noisily with Trane's free flowing lines on the tenor. It doesn't always work, but it's well worth a listen, and stands as a critical meeting of two important talents that were both best known on their own. Tracks include "Shifting Down", "Double Clutching", and "Just Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington/Charles Mingus/Max RoachMoney Jungle ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note, 1962. Used ... $4.99
Rarely are such "meeting of the minds" sessions worth any fuss at all – but in this case, the masterful talents of the players turn what should be a snoozy "common denominator" session into a modernist classic that still crackles with excitement after all these years! The real success factor here is Ellington, who was hitting a point in his career when he was really beginning to experiment again – as you'll hear in the beautifully angular piano lines that he lays next to Mingus' bass and Roach's lively drums. The set's nearly all originals, and titles include "Money Jungle", "Le Fleurs Africaines", and "Wig Wise". Very nice! CD features bonus tracks! CD

✨✧ Wynder K FrogInto The Fire ... LP
United Artists, 1970. Very Good+ ... $11.99
The second solo album by Wynder K Frog – a groovy Brit organist who's probably best known for his work with Traffic, but who's really opening up here, laying down some wonderfully jazzy and funky instrumentals with a fuzzy Hammond sound that's really great! Although the set was recorded in the UK, the best cuts have a soulful crossover sound that feels like it should have been recorded during one of the Cadet Concept sessions in Chicago at the same time. One cut has vocals, but the best are the instrumentals – like "Into the Fire", "Howl In Wolf's Clothing", "Hot Salt Beef", "Cool Hand Stanley", and "Why Am I Treated So Bad". LP, Vinyl record album

Funky organ tracks by the keyboardist from the group Traffic! The record's got a very heavy Brit beat group sound – with a mix of the Jimmy McGriff Sue organ style that was so popular in the UK. The record's got a bit of rock-sounding tunes, but also some nice funky moments! Cuts include "Green Door", "Bad Eye", "Willie and the Hand Jive", "House that Jack Built", and "Harpsichord Shuffle".

Quincy JonesThey Call Me Mister Tibbs ... LP
United Artists, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $28.99
An excellent Quincy Jones score that stands head and shoulders above the soundtrack to the first film in this series, In The Heat Of The Night. Q is in fine fine form with this material – adding in a lot more funk than before, to fit the uptown theme of the film. There's lots of nice jazzy tracks on the record, and some tight funky ones that made the soundtrack virtually a blueprint for the blacksploitation sound of the 70s! Titles include "Soul Flower", "Call Me Mr. Tibbs", "Black Cherry", "Blues For Mr. Tibbs", and "Fat Poppadaddy". (Soundtracks, Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album

Charles MingusWonderland (aka Jazz Portraits) (Douglas Colletion pressing) ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the great lost sessions in the Mingus canon! Mingus leads a sharp small group here, a quintet featuring Booker Ervin, John Handy, Richard Wyands, and Dannie Richmond, of course. The session was recorded live at the Nonagon Gallery in New York, and has that sort of arch-modernist groove that was Mingus' hallmark in these key late 50's years. Ervin, as always, is amazing, and John Handy, who makes his recording debut here, demonstrates the genius that Mingus had for spotting brilliant young players as he plays with the sort of imagination and intensity that he only ever managed to hit again on one or two of his own records as a leader. The record's got 4 long tracks, including long takes of "Nostalgia In Times Square", "Alice's Wonderland", and "No Private Income Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetMusic From Odds Against Tomorrow ... CD
United Artists, 1959. Used ... $9.99
A brilliant album through and through – not just a standout from the late 50s years of the Modern Jazz Quartet, but also a compelling soundtrack composed entirely by pianist John Lewis! Lewis' writing was always a key part of the group's sound, but here it really comes into its own – shaping out these dark, moody little scenes for the movies – which work equally well as little sound pieces on their own – still jazz, yet often moving towards something deeper and more evocative too! The vibes of Milt Jackson are a masterpiece in economy – ringing out gently and filling up the space with each movement they make – and titles include "Skating In Central Park", "A Social Call", "A Cold Wind Is Blowing", and "Cue #9".

Motherhood (Paul Nero)Feel So Free ... CD
United Artists/Zeitgeist (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
A record that looks like a psychedelic rock set from the cover, but which comes across as a groovy bit of jazz – all with lots of sweet saxophone lines from a young Klaus Doldinger! The album credits all the original tracks to Paul Nero – and the set's got the same mix of funk and soul instrumentals we love on Nero's classic albums under his own name – kind of a tripped-out German take on the styles of Stax and Motown in the 60s, but with much wilder instrumentation overall – including some great solos on electric guitar and tenor sax! The rhythms are really romping – pretty darn funky throughout – and the whole thing is wonderful – with titles that include "Back In The Dark", "Cleopatho", "Last Beer", "Yackedy Soul", "Slurpin", "Soul Tiger", and "Soul Town".

Bill PottsJazz Soul Of Porgy & Bess ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good- Gatefold ... $1.99
A stone cooker – and one of the best versions of Porgy & Bess recorded in a jazz format! It's a slightly-forgotten fact that at the time of the big late 50s film version of Porgy & Bess, there was a bit of trouble with the soundtrack – so the market was flooded with other versions of Gershwin's score in a hope to fill the void. This is one of the best of that bunch – a very well-done set of tunes arranged and conducted by Bill Potts, recorded with a strong set of soloists that include Al Cohn, Gene Quill, Zoot Sims, Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Charlie Shavers, Bob Brookmeyer, and Harry Edison. Tracks are the usual batch of Porgy & Bess numbers – "I Loves You Porgy", "It Ain't Necessarily So", "My Man's Gone Now", "A Woman Is A Sometimes Thing", "Summertime" – all woven together wonderfully in a rich tapestry of sound, with some particularly evocative solos.

Paul QuinichetteLike Who? ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The "who" in the title is Basie – as this was one of many late 50s outings cut by Basie sidemen, in an attempt to recapture the energy of his hit sound. And like many of those albums, this one's actually a shade more interesting than Basie sides from the 50s – as it gives the players more room to stretch out, and shows that they can groove well together in a more relaxed setting. Quinichette's the leader, and his tenor is excellent in this stretch of his career; Nat Pierce handled the arrangements and plays piano on the album; and other players include Al Grey, Harry Edison, Eddie Jones, Freddie Green, and Jo Jones. Titles include "Big D", "The Holly Man", "PQ", and "Like Who?" – and most tunes are over 5 minutes long. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing, with deep groove! Cover has light wear on top seam, but is nice overall.)

Jerome RichardsonGoing To The Movies ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Very Good+ (reissue)... $6.99
Wonderful stuff – a rare LP from the early 60's that has master reedman Jerome Richardson running through hip versions of hip tracks from hip (and not-so-hip) movies! Includes nice long versions of "Delilah" and "No Problem" (from Les Liasons Dangereuses), plus "Never On Sunday", "Tonight", and "Moon River". Sound's snoozy, but it's not – mostly because the arrangements are sparkling and kind of modern, and because the band is excellent, and plays with unrestrained fire and imagination – not in the usual way you'd expect from a "jazz player meets movies" sort of session! Richardson is on tenor, baritone, and flute – and the group's a quintet with Les Spann on guitar and flute, Richard Wyands on piano, Henry Grimes on bass, and Grady Tate on drums.

Zoot SimsZoot Sims In Paris ... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $9.99
A rare gem from Zoot Sims – a slightly obscure session issued in the early 60s by United Artists! Producer Alan Douglas put together the record – and as with most of the Douglas-produced albums of the period, the set's got that little "something extra" that makes it stand apart from a lot of other albums by the artist from the time. The whole package isn't too complicated, and just features Zoot blowing easy with a laidback (unnamed) quartet in what seems to be a live session. The solos come fast and free, and with a strong uncluttered sensibility that you don't often hear on other Sims records from the same period. Titles include "Zoot's Blues", "On the Alamo", "A Flat Blues", and "You Go To My Head". CD

Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $3.99
A seminal session as a leader by the young Art Farmer – recorded for United Artists, and a great set of tight lyrical tunes, played by Farmer in his sparkling style – in a group along with Benny Golson on tenor and Bill Evans on piano. Evans is a special treat here, as the 1958 session was recorded at a time when he was making a fair bit of appearances in various rhythm sections for horn players (like Miles Davis) – and although this role in Evans' career was a short one, it yielded some amazingly beautiful moments, as you'll hear on this album. Art's brother Addison plays bass, and Dave Bailey rounds out the group on drums. Tracks include "Cold Breeze", "Mox Nix", "Jubilation", and "Fair Weather". Originally recorded for United Artists, but reissued here by Blue Note. CD

An obscure Howard McGhee session, but a great one! The 1961 session was recorded during Maggie's great comeback years – at a time when he was doing some great work for labels that included Bethlehem, Contemporary, and United Artists. The spirit of this set is similar to those – sort of an easy-going blend of light bop with some of the gentler swinging tones that McGhee was putting into his horn at the time. The quintet on the set features George Coleman on tenor, Junior Mance on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and the whole thing's got an easygoing mellow feel that we really like a lot.

✨✧ Cecil TaylorIn Transition (Jazz Advance/Love For Sale) ... LP
Blue Note, 1955/1959. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
This is the great Blue Note two-fer from the 70's that combines two rare Cecil Taylor albums from the 50's – one recorded for the Transition label, one for United Artists. First up is Jazz Advance – one of the best pre-1960 sessions by Cecil Taylor, recorded in Boston in 1956, and originally issued on the totally rare Transition label in a very small pressing! Taylor's playing here with the great bassist Buell Neidlinger, one of his prime compaitriots in the early days, and the trio (with Dennis Charles) is joined by Steve Lacy on a few tracks. The session's a great way to hear Taylor's development at the beginning, as it includes a number of jazz standards – like "Azure", "Sweet & Lovely", and "Bemsha Swing" – all given an off-kilter twist by Taylor and group. This is probably best heard on one of the album's highlights – a 9 minute solo reading of Cole Porter's "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To"! Next is Love For Sale – a stunner of an album from Cecil Taylor's early days – a set that features three early trio tracks – which let you hear Cecil developing his freer approach on strange takes on Cole Porter's "Get Out of Town", "I Love Paris", and "Love For Sale". The other three tracks are originals by Taylor, and expand the group to a quintet with the amaaaaazing frontline talents of Ted Curson on trumpet and Bill Barron on tenor, always one of our favorite pair of modernists, and players that add richness to any session they grace.

The record's a key bridge between these two chapters of Ray's career – and shows that he was an early player in the change of the Latin sound of the 60s – hitting hard with a tight, young jazzy group on this excellent set!

Don't mistake the album for the similarly-titled Town Hall album on United Artists, because this session's a lot more open-ended – with longer tracks, and a real focus on freely creative solos from players that include Dolphy, Clifford Jordan, Johnny Coles, and Jaki Byard. The album features only 2 long tracks – both titled after Dolphy's passing, with appropriate names "Praying With Eric" and "So Long Eric". And as an added bonus, the back cover features a great Mingus rant against the record industry! LP, Vinyl record album

Genius material from the team of tenorist Stan Getz and Brazilian bossa legend Joao Gilberto – reunited here in a brief mid 70s period, after their famous Verve recordings of the early 60s – and in a way that shows all the changes both artists had gone through over the years! Stan and Joao would go onto produce the sublime Best Of Two Worlds studio record during this same stretch – but this never-issued live date is arguably even deeper and darker than that record – as Stan blows with the stronger current of melancholy he seemed to unlock in period of his Sweet Rain record and onward – and Joao himself does all the singing here, without help from any female vocalist – with that bluer, more personal vibe he hit on his incredible record from 1973. The maturity and emotion of both musicians comes through right away – and support is from the trio of Joanne Brackeen on piano, Clint Houston on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – all wonderful musicians who also know just the right moment to step back and let the two giants dominate when needed. Titles include "Eu Vim Da Bahia", "E Preciso Perdoar", "Doralice", "Morena Boca De Ouro", "Joao Marcelo", "Aguas De Marco", "Samba De Minha Terra", and "Retrato Em Branco E Preto". CD
