✨✧ Bunky GreenLatinization Of Bunky Green ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Chicago alto player Bunky Green gets "Latinized" – in a very groovy set of soul jazz tunes from the 60s Cadet Records scene! The style isn't entirely straight Latin – more just a soul jazz approach to small combo jazz, supported with great percussion from a trio of added players – but Bunky's alto sax is right out front in the mix, bounding warmly over the top of the grooves with a sound that's a bit like Lou Donaldson or Chicago contemporary Sonny Cox! The Dells bring in a bit of vocals to the record – not much, but just enough to create a nice sense of surprise – and tracks include "Feeling Good", "Do It Like You Feel It", "Fast n Foxy", "A Ting A Ling", and "How's Your Mambo?". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono light blue label pressing – a nice copy.)

✨✧ Sonny Stitt & Bunky GreenSoul In The Night ... CD
Cadet/Universal (Japan), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
A twin-alto session that matches the sax of Sonny Stitt with that of Bunky Green – both set up in a tight little combo that includes some smoking work on Hammond by organist Odell Brown! Brown's fierce approach to the keys creates a really gutbuckety sound on the set – making the album burn like some of the best Prestige soul jazz sides from the mid 60s – but also opening up some of the tunes in the same sort of skittish groove that Brown was using on his own albums of the period! A young Maurice White plays drums – and titles include "Soul In The Night", "One Alone", "The Spies", and "Home Stretch". CD
(Out of print, 1998 Japanese pressing. Obi has some wear and four small tape remants on the back – still an excellent copy!)

✨✧ Red SaundersRed The Bebop Guy 1945 to 1951 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Maybe the first-ever collection to bring together the work of the great Red Saunders – a jazz drummer and a seminal figure on the Chicago music scene of the postwar years – a player who not only helped bridge the worlds of jazz and R&B, but who also was the leader of the house band at the legendary Club DeLisa – also known as the initial launching pad for the Sun Ra Arkestra! Red's music is nothing like Ra's – but it does show a similar Chicago ear for new ideas and musical combinations – as Saunders is working here in modes that are way more than the bebop promised by the title – which might be thought of more as an indicator of the modern sensibilities of Saunders. Performances are from a variety of rare 78s – a format in which most of Red's music was issued – and are filled with overlooked players who include Sonny Cohn on trumpet, Earl Washington and Porter Derico on piano, Leon Washington on tenor, McKinley Easton on baritone, Porter Kilbert and Nat Jones on alto, Ike Perkins on guitar, and John Avant and Harlan Floyd on trombones. There's a bit of vocals on the set – from a young Joe Williams, plus Bunky Redding and Buster Bennett – on titles that include "Red The Bebop Guy", "Memories Of You", "Hallelujah", "Card Playing Blues", "DDD", "Ridin Boogie", "Synthesis", "Jitterbuggin", "Legs Getting Bigger & Bigger", "Week Day Blues", "Hey Bartender", "Boot Em Up", "Sugar Bounce", "Lyin Girl Blues", and "Blow Mr Low Blow" – and a number of tracks were arranged by Sonny "Sun Ra" Blount!
