Claude Bolling Jazz All StarsNuances (aka French Jazz) ... LP
DRG, 1956. Near Mint- ... $7.99
An early batch of tracks from French arranger Claude Bolling – probably best known for his later "jazz meets classical" work, but heard here in a great straight set from the 50s! The album features Bolling at the head of a largeish group that features Parisian players Roger Guerin, Pierre Gossez, Martial Solal, and Pierre Michelot – all working with Bolling in a set of tightly-arranged tracks that have a similarity to the west coast mode of the time. The main difference, though, is Claude's earthier touch on piano – one that, even amidst the clean-edged arrangements, stretches back to earlier eras of expression – and brings forward a few decades of tradition in his touch on the keys! Tracks include "French Beat", "Nuances", "Gee Lee", and "The Jockey". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s issue.)

✨✧ Claude BollingJazz In Paris – Claude Bolling Plays The Original Piano Greats ... CD
Universal (France), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although he's mostly known for his "jazz meets classical" recordings, and to a lesser extent for his soundtrack work, Claude Bolling could also be a pretty great straight jazz pianist when he wanted to. This album has him working in a solo mode, recalling the work of piano greats that run from Horace Silver to Fats Waller to Duke Ellington, Earl Hines, and Errol Garner. Tracks are relatively short, and all done in Bolling's amazingly agile style of playing – and titles include "My Monday Date", "The Preacher", "Rosetta", "Caution Blues", "Misty", "Viper's Drag", and "Echoes Of Spring".

✨✧ Jacques Loussier, Andre Hodier, Andre Previn, & Claude BollingMusique Classique Et Jazz – La Naissance Du Crossover 1958 to 1962 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A well-done look at a style that would break big on the European scene of the mid 60s – the mixture of jazz performance and classical melodies – presented here in a slightly different way by some of the genre's true pioneers! Jacques Loussier recorded famous albums of Bach tunes done ala jazz, Andre Previn recorded often as a classical musician – but the work here is different than both of those modes – as the tracks are mostly jazz numbers, but handled with the kind of technical prowess that you'd hear from a classically-trained pianist – still very swinging, but with piano parts that mix melody and improvisation with some jaw-dropping command of the keyboard. The package features work from four key proponents of the scene – each represented on some less-reissued material. First up is Jacques Loussier, on titles that include "Mon Ami My Friend", "Sarabaya Johnny", "Oh Heart Of Love", "Le Chant Des Canons", and "La Fiancee Du Pirate". Next is Andre Hodier on "The Alphabet", "On A Blues", "Cross Criss", "On A Standard", "Paradoxe II", and "On A Riff". Claude Bolling serves up a few numbers – "Clair De Lune", "Back To Swing", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "Cry Me A River" – followed by Andre Previn, on titles that include "Young Man's Lament", "Blame It On My Youth", "Summertime", "A Year Of Youth", "Young & Tender", and "Love Is For The Very Young".

Dany DorizAnthologie Dany Doriz 1962 to 2021 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99 29.99
French vibist Dany Doriz has been making music for many decades – as you can probably guess from the title of this set – and during that time, he's proven to be one of the most versatile musicians on his scene – able to shift between modern and trad jazz modes, hit some Lionel Hampton swinging styles, and even do some sound library material as well! This 3CD set is the first collection we've ever seen to do justice to Dany's long musical legacy – and it brings together a huge amount of work in a variety of settings – a long list of associates here that includes Claude Bolling on piano, Clark Terry on trumpet, Stephane Grappelli on violin, Manu Dibango on saxes, Sacha Distel on guitar, Rhoda Scott on Hammond, and even Lionel Hampton on vibes. Most of Dany's records never made it to our shores back in the day – and the set features lots of early material on CD 1, which runs up to the 90s – then a remaining three decades on the following two CDs – a total of 55 tracks in all, with notes in French and English!
