Jimmy RogersChicago Bound ... CD
Chess, 1950s. Used ... $6.99
The title's an apt one here, as Jimmy Rogers was one of the many bluesmen who started out in the south, but headed to Chicago for greater fame – which was a good thing for Chess Records, who managed to come some of these great sides in the 50s! Rogers both sings and plays guitar – the later of which has a sometimes snakey quality that almost echoes a slight bit of jazz – a mode that recalls some of the inventions T Bone Walker was putting down at the time, but a little bit rootsier overall. Players on these sessions include Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Otis Spann, and Willie Dixon – and tracks include "Money Marbles & Chalk", "Ludella", "You're The One", "Back Door Friend", "I Used To Have A Woman", "Sloppy Drunk", "Blues Leave Me Alone", and "Walking By Myself".

✨✧ AcesChicago Beat (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from this Chicago group – material recorded in France, but which wails with the best sound of the small blues clubs on the south side at the time! The core group features Louis Myers on guitar and harmonica, Dave Myers on bass, and Fred Below on drums – joined by Eddie Taylor, Mickey Baker, and Jimmy Rogers on guitar at points – plus a bit of piano from the great Willie Mabon! The whole thing's excellent – very true to form, and more Delmark than some of the slicker blues recordings that were starting to show up at the time – on titles that include "Ace's Shuffle", "Tell Me Mama", "Take A Little Walk With Me", "Whole Lot Of Lovin", "Blues For Marcelle", and "Money Marbles & Chalk". CD features lots of bonus tracks – 6 more tracks added to the original album! CD

✨✧ Teddy Charles/Shorty RogersCollaboration West (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great vibes from the legendary Teddy Charles – a set that brings together some of his best early moments for Prestige Records! This full set combines two earlier 10" sessions recorded by Charles – both done in LA in 1953, in small group formations with Shorty Rogers on trumpet, Curtis Counce on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – plus Jimmy Giuffre on tenor on a few added tracks! The tunes have more of a west coast groove than some of Charles later 50s work – but his tone and approach still keeps things nice and edgey – filled with those great tones and colors that made Teddy one of the most inventive players on vibes at the time. The other west coast players definitely rise to the occasion, playing with an modern style that's greater than usual – and titles include "Variations On A Motive By Bud", "Wailing Dervish", "Further Out", "Boabalob 1 & 2", and "Margo". Added to the original album are 4 more tracks from the similar Ezz-thetic album – quartet numbers that feature Charles with Jimmy Raney on guitar, in a wonderfully chromatic mode. Tunes include "Nocturne", "Edging Out", "Composition For Four Pieces", and "Night In Tunisia". CD

Al Cohn & Shorty RogersEast Coast – West Coast Scene ... LP
RCA, 1954. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A classic session in the tried and true marketing style of "East Coast vs West Coast" jazz, with one side of tracks by a group led by Al Cohn, and featuring Gene Quill, Hal McKusick, and Joe Newman. The other side's got Shorty Rogers representin' on the West Coast, with Jimmy Giuffre, Zoot Sims, Bud Shank, and Shelly Manne. The album's a nice batch of tracks, in the tightly arranged style that characterizes many of these mid-50's RCA jazz sessions. However, since Cohn's measured playing could never really be taken for New York Hot, and since his longtime partner Zoot Sims is part of Rogers' West Coast group, it's hard to say that these sides are really any sort of true battle between the coasts. Instead, though, the tracks are nice and long, with more room for solos than usual, and titles that include "Loki", "Cool Sunshine", and "Inside Out". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy GreeneWhile Looking Up ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We're sure that Jimmy Greene shot that cover photo before the Covid-19 lockdown, but the image has a particularly strong resonance after all of us have faced that situation – which is why the "looking up" title on the album is very well placed! Greene's music has this sense of positivity that's really great – not an easy, blithely optimistic vibe – but this personal spirit that really comes through in his music – a vibe that's uplifting, but never too facile too – this great quality that comes through the interplay of Jimmy's work on tenor and soprano, with guitar from Lage Lund, piano and Fender Rhodes from Aaron Goldberg, bass from Reuben Rogers, and drums from Kendrick Scott – plus some guest vibes from Stefon Harris too. Most tracks are Greene originals – and titles include "Overreaction", "Steadfast", "Simple Prayer", "While Looking Up", and "April 4th". CD

Willie MabonShake That Thing ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (France), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
A great date from this legendary Chicago musician – an artist who recorded in the early days for Chess Records, then seemed to find his most welcome recording home overseas on albums like this! The material is from a 1973 session in France, but has all the grit and growl of a Chicago recording – with Willie on vocals, piano, and a bit of harmonica – and some sweet electric lines on guitar from the team of Louis Myers on lead, and Jimmy Rogers on rhythm – alongside Dave Myers on bass and Fred Below on drums. There's almost a slight current of funk at times, which Willie emphasizes with his piano in a great way – and titles include "Got To Have Some", "Shake That Thing", "Poison Ivy", "I'm Mad", "Lover Girl", "I Enjoyed Myself In Pau", "Hungry", and "Hey Girl". CD features a number of unissued tracks – including a few recorded at the same time in The Netherlands with guest vocals on one track by Koko Taylor! CD

Jack MillmanJazz Studio 4 – The Compositions Of Jack Millman ... LP
Decca, 1955. Very Good ... $9.99
A rare session as a leader by trumpeter Jack Millman – one that's based around his own compositions, and which a large group of west coast players alongside some lesser-known 50s talents! Players include Fred Aguirre, Lin Halliday, Artie Anto, Mike Pacheco, Curtis Counce, Herb Geller, Jimmy Giuffre, Howard Roberts, and Don Friedman – playing arrangements of Millman tunes by Shorty Rogers, Jimmy Giuffre, Jack Montrose, and Pete Rugolo. Tracks are short, but have wonderfully constructed horn passages – as well as some very nice use of Latin percussion – and titles include "Tom & Jerry", "Bolero De Mendez", "Groove Juice", "Pink Lady", "The Turk", and "Bambi". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shorty RogersSwinging Mr Rogers ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A standout set from Shorty – tightly arranged numbers performed by a quartet that includes Jimmy Giuffre, Pete Jolly, Curtis Counce, and Shelly Manne – all working with Shorty in perfect west coast form! Despite the length of the tunes, the overall feel is similar to Rogers' excellent Wherever The Five Winds Blow album for RCA – and makes the record a great set, done without any gimmicks or tricks – and enough of the modern touch still left from Rogers' first few years on record. Titles include "Martians Go Home", "Trickleydidlier", "Not Really The Blues", and "Michele's Meditation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMasterpiece Volume 32 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Mid 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great entry in this long-running collection – a series that's really evolved over the years, as you'll hear on this CD! Masterpiece was never about straight disco at the start – it always focused on more obscure post-disco tracks from the early 80s – and by the time of this volume, the label's shifted a lot more towards the second half of the decade – so that you've got a range of very cool 80s groove numbers that fly way below the radar! Most of these are tracks we'd never heard before – much more obscure than the early volumes – and there's a great range of work from varied sources, with titles that include "One & Only" by Cool R, "Jealous Lovers" by Ritsch $, "Come To Me" by Bennie Braxton, "Green Light" by Carmen Bogart, "I Can't Wait To Break" by Billy Jones, "I'll Be There (club mix)" by Demetrius, "Jealousy" by Bora Bora, "A Lover's Passion" by Tammi Holt, "Don't Quit (12" mix)" by Cecile Grier, "Confide In Me (ext radio)" by Jimmy Holland, and "Shifting Sands" by Pete Q with Helen Rogers.
