✨✧ Luis VaronaCommand Performance – Luis Varona Returns To The World Famous Eden Roc ... LP
Exodus/Vee Jay, 1966. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few albums cut by this great Latin pianist – a follow-up to his famous Fiesta Night at Eden Roc, issued earlier on both the Gone and Tico labels, and still one of the all-time Latin rarities on wax! This set has a similar spirit – as Luis' group plays with a hard percussive sound, very well suited to his firey piano work, peppered by some very cool vocalizations, and choppy melodies that really keep things spicey! Titles include "Porto Diablo", "Whistling Cha", "Moods", "Anabacoa", "Toca Un Son", "Cuando Cuando", and "Sabroso Guajira", which has some nice vibes. LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Exodus pressing. Cover has a tiny split on the top seam, but is great overall.)

Four TopsMain Street People ... LP
ABC, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
Really nice work from The Four Tops – proof that they were still going quite quite strong after Motown! The album's got a hip sound that shows the group moving through a wider range of emotions than we ever remember – crafting rich deep harmonies that still stand apart from the big wave of sweet soul quartets of the early 70s, and which sparkle with all the emotion that Levi Stubbs' voice had to offer. Includes their great theme to Shaft In Africa, the track "Are You Man Enough" – plus loads of other great ones like "I Just Can't Get You Out Of My Mind", "It Won't Be The First Time", "Sweet Understanding Love", "Too Little, Too Late", "Peace Of Mind", and "Main Street People".

Johnny GriffinNight Lady ... LP
EmArcy, 1964. Near Mint- ... $34.99
A rare European gem from Johnny Griffin – recorded in quartet formation with backing from the rhythm trio of the Clarke Boland Big Band! Johnny was working with the trio in the bigger group at the time, but he gets plenty of space to state his case here – stretching out on hard-bitten, almost-modern solos that are some of his most adventurous to date on record – supported strongly on the album's longish tracks by Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums! There's a quality to Griffin's tone that's incredible – urgent, edgey, but never too far out – completely in command of itself, and able to run free, but without wasting at note at all – unlike some of his over-stretched European solos of later years. The set features beautiful long readings of Boland's "Night Lady" and "Old Stuff", plus Griffin's "Scrabble", and versions of "Summertime", "All The Things You Are", and "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono grey label pressing with deep groove. Cover has minimal wear and aging.)

Sheila Jordan & Arild AndersenSheila ... LP
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of the hippest albums ever recorded by Sheila Jordan – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of her work! The album's a set of spare duets recorded in Oslo with bassist Arild Andersen – in a setting that recalls some of the initial experimental work she'd done with Roswell Rudd, but with an even more spacious sound overall – one that lets Jordan dominate the tunes strongly with an amazing command of rhythm and timing! The approach is never too self-indulgent, and Andersen's warm tones on bass round out the tunes with a subtle sense of soul. Tunes are a mix of old standards and a few hipper 70s numbers – and include "Song Of Joy", "The Saga Of Harrison Crabfeathers", "On Green Dolphin Street", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "The Lady", and "Better Than Anything". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Abbey LincolnPeople In Me ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $13.99
A great session that was recorded in Tokyo in 1973 – featuring Abbey backed by a small group that includes Dave Liebman on sax and flute, Al Foster on drums, and Hiromasa Suzuki on piano. The record's pretty darn hip – and it's a nice version of Abbey's haunting approach to vocal jazz, touched by some of the new directions vocalists were going at the time, yet firmly rooted in the firm command of voice and emotion heard on Lincoln's best records from the early 60s. Titles include "Africa", "You & Me & Love", "Naturally", "Living Room", and "Natas", which seems to have Abbey singing along with overdubs of her own voice, to very cool effect! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

MoonglowsTheir Greatest Sides ... LP
Chess, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
We couldn't think of a better title for this one – as every track is a winner! The Moonglows are, to us, doo wop at its best – hanging here between the rough styles of earlier years, and the overproduced work of later ones. The group are working near accapella here – with just a bit of rhythmic backing and guitar – in a style that glides with effortless magic that few other groups, no matter how great, could ever hope to match! Titles include "Ten Commandments Of Love", "In My Diary", "Sincerely", "Blue Velvet", "Penny Arcade", "Over & Over Again", and the sublime "Most Of All". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bud PowellBud Powell Trio ... LP
Roost (Japan), 1958. Very Good+ ... $18.99
Seminal sounds from the great Bud Powell – recorded right at an early moment when the pianist was bursting into Birdland fame – working here with a key trio that features Curley Russell on bass and a young Max Roach on drums! Bud seems to have a bit more color in his keys here than in later years – a sense of tone that's balanced by his increasingly deft flights on the keys – that amazing command of imagination and energy that makes a record like this one of the best bold statements of modernism from the bop generation. Many tunes are older standards, but transformed in Bud's hands – partly given a nod to the midtown modes from other players of the postwar years, then completely dismantled once the solos take off. Titles include "Buds Bubble", "Burt Covers Bud", "Off Minor", "I Should Care", "I'll Remember April", and "Everything Happens To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Older Japanese pressing, in a flipback cover. Cover has some light aging on the back, and a small bit of Japanese text in pen.)

Mort Sahl may never have made it to the presidency (his criticism of the Warren Report may have had something to do with that) – but his command of politics was stronger than most in his generation, and his razor-sharp wit was always spot-on! LP, Vinyl record album

Includes "Mashed Potatoes" by Carl Holmes & the Commanders, "Mambo Watusi" by Rene Bloch, "I Want To Hold Your Hand" by The Swallows, "Land Of 1000 Dances" by Crhis Kenner, and "C.C.

✨✧ Johnny SmithJohnny Smith Plus The Trio ... LP
Roost, 1960. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A trio is helping out guitarist Johnny Smith – but, as with all of his other Roost Records of the time, the man himself is very far out in the lead – making real magic on the strings of his guitar, and playing with an effortless command of tone and color! Some moments of the record actually have a bit more of an uptempo swing than other of Johnny's albums of the period – but others are a masterpiece is gentle harmonics – those incredible notes that Smith almost seemed to invent for jazz guitar in the 50s – and which seem to come through even more beautifully in the sparest of settings. The trio features Bob Pancoast on piano, Mousie Alexander on drums, and George Roumanis on bass – and titles include "Hippo", "Out Of Nowhere", "Un Poco Loco", "I Got It Bad", "Let's Fall In Love", "Over The Rainbow", and "I Can't Get Started". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cecil TaylorWorld Of Cecil Taylor ... LP
Candid, 1960. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cecil Taylor's first LP for the Candid label – and a landmark album that really lets him open up for the first time in years at a recording session! The album was cut at Nola's Penthouse in 1960, and the core group is Cecil's trio with Buell Neidlinger on bass and Dennis Charles on drums – but Archie Shepp joins the group on tenor on two tracks, "Air" and "Lazy Afternoon". The remaining three have a sound that's not always heard on other Taylor albums from the 60s – a bit bluesy, with playing that might be called a bit "straight", but which also shows Cecil's command of the jazz idiom in a mode that allows keen comparison with other players of his generation. Titles include "EB", "This Nearly Was Mine", and "Port Of Call". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing,w ith insert. Cover has some light fading near the spine, but is nice overall.)

✨✧ Hank MobleyAnother Workout ... LP
Blue Note, 1961/1985. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A rare second chapter to Mobley's famous Workout album – recorded in the early 60s, but not issued until the mid 80s – and even then, only momentarily on vinyl! The session's a great one – a quartet outing with a structure that's similar to Hank's classic Soul Station record, but which is a bit more fluid and free-thinking overall! The long tracks give Mobley plenty of room to open up on his solos – really commanding the record with his deeply soulful tone and strong sense of timing. Other players include Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums (plus Grant Green on one track) – and titles include "Out Of Joe's Bag", "I Should Care", "Getting & Jettin", "Hank's Other Soul", and "Three Coins In A Fountain". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s DMM pressing, with obi! Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Sonny StittTune-Up! ... LP
Cobblestone, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
By this point in his career, Sonny hardly needed a tune up in his style – but the album's a great one from his post-Prestige years, and a real back-to-basics effort that recalls the genius of his work on Roost! The format is straight and simple – Stitt's tenor and alto fronting a quartet that includes Barry Harris, Sam Jones, and Alan Dawson – all playing in a way that puts Sonny in command on all tracks, blowing with an amazing tone that makes us want to throw away all his funk, organ, and electric outings, and just concentrate on these straight acoustic sides. Stitt has a way of blowing the reed like he's got his whole mouth moving into the sax – an earthy, human, and personal feel that first came out strongly in his work during the late 50s, but which has grown even more by this point – even if you couldn't hear the development on other sets. And given our love of funk and electric sides, we're honestly surprised we find ourselves championing a record like this from the early 70s – but it's a great one, and not to be missed if you remotely dig Stitt! Titles include "Tune Up", "Idaho", "Just Friends", "Groovin High", and "Blues For Prez & Bird". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and some smudges.)
