Creed Taylor OrchestraShock – Music In Hi Fi ... LP
ABC, 1958. Very Good ... $16.99
Very cool work from Creed Taylor – material cut when he was still a bandleader, and hadn't yet evolved into the role of super-producer! The session's a long way from the CTI sound of the 70s – and instead has Creed playing some very spooky stuff – compositions by Kenyon Hopkins that have a horror sort of theme – dark little tunes that would be a perfect soundtrack for a haunted house! The core instrumentation is jazz-based, but augmented with some great other touches as well – and there's two female voices that scream, groan, and make other odd noises on the record from time to time. Titles include "The Long Walk", "Jungle Fever", "Heartbeat", "Haunted House", "In Bedlam", "Time Runs Out", and "The Secret". (Now Sound, Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Maynard FergusonIt's My Time ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Maynard kicks off the 80s with another in his run of successful albums for Columbia – blending together funky fusion and disco in a very sweet groove! He's actually got some soulful help on the session – working with Tom Tom 84 on some of the record's best tracks, which come across with a bit less schmaltz than you'd expect – and Nick Lane also brings some nice moments to a few of the album's mellower tracks too. Titles include "An Offering Of Love (part 1)", "It's My Time", "Dance To Your Heart", "Everybody Loves The Blues", "Red Creek", and "You Can Have Me Anytime". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a sticker on the spine.)

✨✧ Henry FranklinSkipper ... LP
Black Jazz, 1972. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest moments ever from west coast bassman Henry Franklin – a set of soaring, spiritual power – and a key demonstration of his rich energy as a leader! Franklin heads a wicked lineup here – playing both Fender and acoustic bass amidst other players who include Bill Henderson on electric piano, Charles Owens on tenor and soprano sax, Oscar Brashear on trumpet, Kenny Climax on guitar, and Michael Carvin on drums – all coming together with a mix of spiritual vibes and soulful undercurrents, in ways that almost give the record a Strata East sort of vibe! The whole thing is certainly one of the most memorable sessions on the Black Jazz label – and titles include "Outbreak", "Little Miss Laurie", "Theme For Jojo", and "Plastic Creek Stomp". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some splitting on the top seam, and one bumped corner.)

✨✧ Herbie MannSurprises ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A record that's full of many surprises – one of which is the sweet lead vocals of Cissy Houston! Houston works here in a style that merges nicely with the jazzy currents of Herbie Mann – at a level that's different than other soul/fusion sets of the time – like work on CTI or Columbia – drawing a lot of freshness from the inventive arrangements of Pat Rebillot! Pat graced other of the best Herbie Mann records from the time – and his keyboards provide just the right sort of slinky bridge between Mann's flute and the vocals – almost a Bob James-ish sensibility that keeps things laidback and open. Titles include "Draw Your Breaks", "Cajun Moon", "Creepin'", "Easter Rising", "Asa Branca", "The Sound Of Windwood", "Cricket Dance", "The Butterfly In A Stone Garden", and "Anata (I Wish You Were Here With Me)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and a cutout notch.)

Bobby ScottCompositions Of Bobby Scott ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good ... $14.99
Really wonderful work from pianist Bobby Scott – a perfect showcase not just for his young talents as a composer and arranger, but also for a host of key solo performers as well! This full album brings together two previous 10" LP sessions – both of them brilliant, and graced by some of the most modern talents Bethlehem Records had to offer – which makes for extremely fresh sounds from Scott's wonderful music – jazz that's at a level that's really hard to peg – neither west coast cool, nor east coast arranged – but a really special space of its own! Even when tunes are short, they're full of feeling – and really make tremendous use of the individual players – who include Hal McKusick on alto, Eddie Bert on trombone, and Ronnie Woellmer on the first session – and the amazing Charlie Mariano on alto for the second, sounding incredible here – alongside Conte Candoli on trumpet, Bill Holman on tenor, Jimmy Giuffre on baritone, and Frank Rosolino on trombone. Titles include "Moon Tan", "Kwan Youen", "Wigwam", "The Creed", "A Parable", "The Wig", "Count Bill", and "Cerebellum". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – red label with deep groove. Cover has split seams and surface wear – mostly on the back.)

VariousFire Into Music ... LP
CTI/Kudu/Salvation, Early 70s. Very Good ... $6.99
A great little collection of tunes on the CTI, Kudu, and Salvation labels – all owned by Creed Taylor during the height of his powers during the mid 70. There's a range of soulful and funky tunes on the album – and titles include "First Light" by Freddie Hubbard, "Supership" by George Benson, "Chicago Theme" by Hubert Laws, "Such A Night" by Esther Philips, "Mister Magic" by Grover Washington, "I Told Jesus" by Stanley Turrentine, and "Feel Like Making Love" by Bob James, LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dave Brubeck & Paul DesmondJazz At The Blackhawk ... LP
Fantasy, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really early work from the team of Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond – cut years before their hit fame at Columbia, when Brubeck was first cooking up his modernist combo, and recording for Fantasy Records on the west coast. This harder to find set shows Brubeck mostly working on turning out new versions of older standards, filtered through his modern take to time structures and phrasing. Titles include "Jeepers Creepers", "Let's Fall In Love", "Blue Moon", "My Heart Stood Still", "Trolley Song", and "I May Be Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing with deep groove. Cover has surface wear and some aging.)

✨✧ Mose AllisonDown Home Piano ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An all-instrumental set from Mose Allison – one that drops out his familiar jazz vocals, and really brings a nice focus to his energy on the keys of the piano! Given that Mose really got his start as a sideman in other combos during the 50s, the selection's no surprise – and if you've only heard Allison's better-known numbers with singing, you'll really be floored here at his skills as an instrumentalist – particularly in the way he manages to play the piano with deep-down roots, yet also hit some stunningly modern tones as well! Accompaniment is by Addison Farmer on bass, plus either Ronnie Free or Nick Stabulas on drums – and titles include "Dinner On The Ground", "Crepuscular Air", "Mule", "Creek Bank", "Town", "Devil In The Cane Field", "The Minstrels", "Moon & Cypress", "Carnival", and "Mojo Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label trident pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has a cutout hole and small center split in the spine.)

✨✧ Steve GrossmanKatonah (180 gram pressing) ... LP
DIW (Japan), 1986. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A bold little set from Steve Grossman – a record that's nicely poised between his frenetic work of the 70s and mellower moments of later years – done in quartet formation, but with plenty of focus on Steve's wonderful tenor, especially on the longer tracks! There's a very nice "bit" in Grossman's reed on most of the numbers here – a sound that's not as screeching as on his 70s dates, but which often hints at that direction, then swings back into a rounder, fuller tone on the horn. Backing is by Takehiro Honda on piano, Masahiro Yoshida on drums, and either Hideo Kawahara or Yasushi Yoneki on bass – on titles that include "Taurus People", "Soultrane", "Katonah", and "Afternoon In Paris". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing)
