✨✧ Donald Byrd, Charlie Rouse, Al Cohn, & OthersKnow Your Jazz ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An interesting little session from ABC – recorded as sort of an educational record about jazz, directed by Creed Taylor – but also a session that comes off well in the jam session mode of some of the Savoy sets of the same time! Players are a varied lot – and include Donald Byrd, Oscar Pettiford, Gigi Gryce, Mundell Lowe, Tony Scott, Billy Taylor, and Kenny Clarke – all working together in a set of tunes that showcases a different mode of jazz with each track, and which features a different soloist stepping out to take the lead with each new number. Titles include "In A Mellow Tone", "If I Love Again", "There Will Never Be Another You", "Laura", "But Not For Me", "How About You", and "Stella By Starlight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some splitting on the seams.)

Ornette ColemanSkies Of America ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+ ... $39.99
A brilliant large ensemble work from Ornette Coleman – ambitious material recorded with full orchestra, in a haunting sound that's light years from any of his smaller group recordings of the 60s and 70s! There's an incredible feel to the strings used here – played by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by David Measham – all tied up and dark, with swirling sounds that run up beautifully from the bottom, then take off to the skies promised in the title – opening the door for Ornette to come in and solo freely over the top – in a magical mix that easily makes the record a standout in his long and mighty career! Harmolodic theory is definitely a part of Coleman's conception here – but in very different ways than his quartet or quintet recordings. Tracks include "The Men Who Live In The White House", "Sunday In America", "Dreams", "Native Americans", "Silver Screen", and "The Artist In America". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Lou DonaldsonMidnight Creeper (Applause pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Applause, 1968. Very Good ... $9.99
Funky genius from Lou Donaldson – one of his first funky albums for Blue Note, and a real killer all the way through! The album has a great young group working with Lou – players that include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Lonnie Smith on organ, Leo Morris (aka Idris Muhammed) on drums, and George Benson on guitar – grooving with that really soulful early sound of his! The album has that hard Lou Donaldson funky sound that still sounds fantastic today – and titles include "Dapper Dan", "Midnight Creeper", "Bag of Jewels", and "Love Power". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 80s issue. Vinyl appears slightly heated and plays with some crackles on Side Two. Cover has some wear and aging, yellowed tape at the corners, and a name in marker on back.)

Don EllisHaiku (US pressing) ... LP
MPS, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the coolest albums ever cut by trumpeter Don Ellis – quite different from any of his American sessions of the time, and done with a really stretched-out, ambitious sort of feel! The record matches Ellis bold trumpet work with some hip arrangements that feature multiple guitars, keyboards from Milcho Leviev, a bit of harp, and some added strings to round out the sound nicely – a complex approach that gives the record some of the sophistication of the hipper Creed Taylor productions of the early 70s. The strings really bring in some arch-sounding notes at points, then slide into warmer passages at others – and Leviev's keyboards have a rich tone next to the sharper notes of Don's trumpet on some of the best cuts. The whole thing's about as poetic as you'd guess from the title, and from songs like "Dew", "Summer Rain", "Forest", "Cherry Petals", "Water Jewel", "Blossoming", "Mirror Pond Of Stars", and "Parting". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s US pressing.)

✨✧ Maynard FergusonBoy With Lots Of Brass ... LP
Mercury, 1957. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
There's definitely lots of brass here – as you might guess from the title – but never so much so that it gets in the way of individual soloing by Maynard Ferguson! The date features Maynard working with arrangements by Willie Maiden, Al Cohn, Ernie Wilkins, and Bill Holman – all for a largeish group that's wonderfully hip – Bobby Timmons on piano, Anthony Ortega on alto, Jimmy Ford on alto and tenor, Willie Maiden on tenor, Tate Houston on baritone, Richard Evans on bass, and Larry Bunker on drums – plus some added trumpets and trombones! Maynard himself plays both instruments on the date, and the album also feature some surprising guest vocals by Irene Kral on 4 tracks – spicing up the instrumental blend with lyrics on "Moonlight In Vermont", "I Hadn't Anyone Till You", "Imagination", and "The Song Is You". Instrumental tracks include "Jeepers Creepers", "I Never Knew", "A Foggy Day", "Love Me Or Leave Me", and "The Lamp Is Low". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a trace of a price sticker.)

Maynard FergusonIt's My Time ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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 light wear.)

Quincy JonesWalking In Space ... LP
CTI/A&M, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the greatest Quincy Jones albums of all time! The record's a spacey jazz masterpiece – and it combine's Quincy's soulful soundtrack vision with the excellent production talents of Creed Taylor, for a monster album of long drawn out cuts that mix soul jazz with more sophisticated arrangements! Bob James plays electric piano on a number of cuts, and in a way, the record's kind of a blueprint for some of James' later CTI albums. Titles include "Killer Joe", "Dead End", "Walking In Space", and "Love & Peace". LP, Vinyl record album
(Grey label pressing. Cover has some ring and edge wear, small seam splits, a peeled spot from sticker removal, and Gold Record Award sticker.)
