A beautiful album by one of the most underrated tenor talents of the 60's!

✨✧ Blue MitchellOut Of The Blue ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $12.99
Nice hardbop from Blue Mitchell! He's heading up a quintet with Benny Golson, and Golson brings a tightness to the session that's missing from some of Blue's other Riverside albums. Art Blakey's on drums, and the bass position's held by either Sam Jones or Paul Chambers, both of which make for a ... read more CD

Blue MitchellStablemates ... CD
Choice (UK), 1977. Used ... $14.99
Brilliant hardbop work from Blue Mitchell – a rare set recorded at a time when Blue was mostly working in an electric mode for other labels, but is caught here in a sharp-edged acoustic date that really takes us back to his sound in the 60s!

Grammofonverket/Dragon (Sweden), 1974. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
Bassist Red Mitchell got his start on the west coast scene in America – but once he moved to Sweden, his creative powers really opened up – to the point where he was not only a hell of a musician on his initial instrument, but also a colorful pianist and a hell of a leader too!
