Sadao WatanabeNabesada In Mood ... LP
Toshiba (Japan), 1961. Very Good+ ... $36.99
Great work from a very young Sadao Watanabe – playing alto sax lines against a moody backdrop of late nite orchestrations – a style that's quite different than the sound of his work from later 60s years! Yet even at this early age, Watanabe's clearly a great talent on his instrument – playing familiar tunes, but doing so with a bit of an edge – a "bite" in his tone that creates an oddly unsettling feel, and brings a much moodier sound to music that might otherwise come off with a sweeter style. LP, Vinyl record album
(1970 pressing. Vinyl has a short click in one spot, but is very nice overall.)

VariousKaruizawa Music Inn Modern Jazz Meeting – Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Toshiba/Think (Japan), 1961. Used 2CD ... $24.99
All-star jazz from the Japanese scene of the early 60s – 2 albums' worth of material from some of the greatest players in Japan at the time! The first album in the set is done in a style that almost recalls the Jazz At The Philharmonic mode on Verve – with 2 very long tunes ("Moanin" and "Walkin), each done in side-long takes with plenty of room for solo contributions from players that include Sadao Watanabe, Norio Maeda, Takeashi Inomata, Keitaro Miho, Akira Nakano, and Shungo Sawada – all trading lines with a really spontaneous sense of energy! The second album is tighter and a bit more controlled – with live performances by combos led by Shungo Sawada, Masao Yagi, Norio Maeda, and others – all jamming in hardbop formation on numbers that include "What's Now", "Del Sasser", "Like Someone In Love", "Easy Talking", "Four On Six", and "Alone Together". Together, the records are a great document of the growing energy of the Japanese scene at the time – and beautifully portray the talents of these players in a live setting! CD
(Out of print, includes obi.)

✨✧ Art BlakeyNight At Birdland Vol 2 (original cover) ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver – and featuring Clifford Brown on trumpet, just a few months before his early death – plus Lou Donaldson on alto and Curley Russell on bass. The presence of alto instead of tenor makes the sound slightly different than later incarnations of the group – and the overall approach is one that virtually defines the shift from straight bop to hardbop in the 50s – a mode that both Blakey and Silver were key in creating. Tracks include "Wee Dot", "Quicksilver" (alternate), "Now's The Time", and "Confirmation". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 80s Japanese Toshiba-EMI pressing, BLP 1522. Cover has some light fading near the spine, but is nice overall.)

✨✧ Serge ChaloffBlue Serge ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A real classic in the canon of American postwar jazz – one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by Boston baritone player Serge Chaloff – one of a handful of musicians who really helped move the instrument forward in jazz, and help it take a rightful place next to the expressiveness of the tenor and alto sax! Even though he hardly got a chance to record, Serge was a hell of a player, and one who has both the rich tone of the instrument completely in hand, while also able to move with the fluidity of a much leaner horn – a quality that's augmented here by the fantastic rhythm work from Sonny Clark on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The set's a treasure through and through – from the cool cover image, to the great music within – served up on tunes that include "How About You", "Handful Of Stars", "The Goof & I", "Susie's Blues", and "All The Things You Are". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 80s Japanese Toshiba pressing, ECJ-50051, with obi!)

✨✧ Charlie MarianoMariano (10-inch) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1953. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Incredible early work from Charlie Mariano – a landmark 10" LP that was one of his first explosions onto the scene in 50s jazz! The format is simple – sextet grooving from a standard Bethlehem group that includes Stu Williamson on trumpet, Frank Rosolino on trombone, and Claude Williamson on piano – but somehow Charlie manages to create a level of energy that really blows away any expectations you might have. All players crackle with a level of electricity that's not that common for Bethlehem sides of the time – and Charlie himself steps forth with an incredible tone on the alto – icy, raspy, and with more soul than you'd expect for his young years. Titles include "Chloe", "Green Walls", "Three Little Words", and "S Nice". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 00s Japanese Toshiba-EMI pressing – TOJJ-1022. Includes the insert.)
