✨✧ Jimmy SmithBack At The Chicken Shack ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Very Good ... $5.99
A partner album of sorts to Jimmy Smith's classic Midnight Special album – recorded during the same sessions as that one, and also featuring Stanley Turrentine on tenor and Kenny Burrell on guitar! The sound here is almost even more open and stretched out – with only 4 long tracks on the album, 2 on each side – all offering up plenty of room for Jimmy to hit the Hammond with that keenly imaginative approach to a solo he was showing at this time – a style that proved that the instrument could do a lot more than just make weird noises or pump up the rhythm. Turrentine's tenor more than matches Jimmy's solos for imagination – and titles include "When I Grow Too Old To Dream", "Messy Bessie", "Minor Chant", and "Back At The Chicken Shack". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover & labels have a name in marker.)

✨✧ Eric AlexanderJust One Of Those Things ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful setting for the tenor genius of Eric Alexander – a freewheeling trio, which is a format we're not sure we've ever heard him in before – really stretching out in an amazing way, with the sense of of imagination that we've always loved in his music, but with a depth that takes him farther than most of his usual recordings too! We're not sure what happened, but there's a new sort of edge in Eric's horn – one that might well come from the sublime work of Dezron Douglas on bass and Neal Smith on drums – but which might just be Alexander deciding to take off and really blow us away – which he does throughout the set, with a sense of spirituality that we haven't heard from him before. The whole thing's amazing – and titles include "Wise One", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "You Say You Care", "Beautiful Love", "Bessie's Blues", "Russian Lullaby", and "We've Only Just Begun".

✨✧ James P JohnsonClassic James P Johnson Sessions 1921 to 1943 (6CD set) ... CD
Mosaic, 1920s/1930s/Early 40s. New Copy 6 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An incredible journey in music – one that documents the importance of pianist James P Johnson in a variety of different settings – from the earliest years of jazz, right on up through the boogie woogie and swing generations as well! The set is exactly the sort that Mosaic Records can do best – as it brings together material from a variety of different labels, almost all of which was originally released on the 78rpm format – which makes the process far more of an historical achievement than just a collection of previously-issued albums! Instead, the music here comes from over 50 different sessions – some which feature Johnson on solo piano, some with vocalists such as Rosa Henderson, Martha Copeland, Roy Evans, Ethel Waters, Clarence Williams, Lavinia Turner, Bessie Smith, and others – and still more with a variety of important ensembles of the 20s and 30s – whose music Johnson certainly helped inform. The package also features key performances with Williams' group – and as is standard with Mosaic, the notes and session details alone are worth the price of admission. The 6CD set features a whopping 158 titles in all – all beautifully remastered, and presented with far more than you'll ever find in one of those shoddy public domain sets. A true testament to the range of Johnson's music in these years – and long overdue! CD
