Jazz At The PhilharmonicIn Tokyo – Live At The Nichigenki Theatre 1953 (3LP Verve set) ... LP
Verve (Japan), 1953. Near Mint- 3LP Box Set ... $11.99
A rare performance in Japan by the Jazz At The Philharmonic! The double-length set is overflowing with goodness, all recorded in the open-ended, warm-hearted style that Norman Granz brought to these classic performances! The album starts with an extended set by the JATP All-Stars – a group that features Roy Eldridge and Charlie Shavers on trumpets, Willie Smith and Benny Carter on alto, Bill Harris on trombone, and Ben Webster and Flip Philips on tenors – with rhythm from the combo of Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and JC Heard on drums. JATP titles include a "Ballad Medley" and "Cotton Tail". The set then features six more tracks by the Oscar Peterson Trio – including "Swingin Till The Girls Come Home" and "Blues" – and another four by the Gene Krupa Trio – including "Don't Be That Way", and "Cocktails For Two". The set then ends with a long set by Ella Fitzgerald with a quartet – on titles that include "Smooth Sailin", "How High The Moon", "Body & Soul", "Lady Be Good", and "My Funny Valentine" – plus a reading of "Perdido" with the whole JATP group. LP, Vinyl record album
(Obi is included, but torn. Box top has split bottom corners, otherwise in nice shape.)

Mark MurphyStart Of Something ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $12.99
Quite possibly the greatest of Mark Murphy's early albums for Capitol – a heavily swinging set that features some great arrangements from Bill Holman, and Mark's classic version of the title tune – which he'd reprise nicely in years to come! The album's got Murphy in great west coast jazz territory – working with players who include Bill Holman and Richie Kamuca on tenors, Conte Candoli and Stu Williamson on trumpets, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bobby Gibbons on guitar, and Mel Lewis on drums – plus a bit of extra conga on half of the set! Side one features great readings of "This Could Be The Start Of Something", "Just In Time", "Falling In Love With Love", and "The Lady Is A Tramp" – and side two features a swinging medley of tracks that include "Lucky In Love", "Cheek To Cheek", "That Old Black Magic", and "For Me & My Gal".

Max Roach & Art BlakeyPercussion Discussion (Tough/Max) ... LP
Chess/Cadet/Argo, 1957/1958. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A 70s issue of 2 late 50s hard bop sides released by Argo and Cadet. Though the title and packaging might lead you to believe Max and Art are performing side by side, it's really just two albums slapped together, and not necessarily inappropriately, in a gatefold sleeve to sell easily. The first set is Blakey's Tough, one of those obscure sessions recorded during the years after the time he and Horace Silver split, with a transitional early lineup of the Jazz Messengers featuring Jackie McLean and Bill Hardman up front with Sam Dockery and Spanky DeBrest filling out the rhythm section. Included are a swinging Gershwin medley and two Duke Jordan tunes "Scotch Blues" and the classic "Flight to Jordu". Max's sides were issued as Max, a killer set of bop tracks recorded by Max with Hank Mobley and Kenny Dorham – plus a guest appearance by Ramsey Lewis on piano, in one of his few non-Chicago, non-trio sides! The record's got that great kind of energy that Roach could hit when he really was kicking his group into gear – and although the overall approach is mostly hard bop, there's plenty going on under the surface. Tracks include "CM", "Four X", "Crackle Hut", and "Speculate". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersTough! ... LP
Cadet, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of those obscure sessions recorded during the years after the time Blakey and Horace Silver broke up, and before he reestablished himself as a key leader on Blue Note during 1958. Features a striking early lineup of the Jazz Messengers featuring Jackie McLean(alto) and Bill Hardman(trumpet) with Sam Dockery and Spanky DeBrest. Included are a swinging Gershwin medley and two Duke Jordan tunes "Scotch Blues" and the classic "Flight to Jordu". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mary Lou Williams & The Trumpet GiantsMary Lou Williams & The Trumpet Giants Featuring Bobby Hackett & Dizzy Gillespie ... CD
Perception/Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nice little live set from the early 70s – originally issued under Gillespie's name for the Perception label, recorded at the Overseas Press Club in New York, and featuring the unlikely meeting of Mary Lou Williams on piano with Dizzy Gillespie and Buddy Hackett on trumpets. The trio are supported by rhythm from the team of George Duvivier on bass and Grady Tate on drums – in a style that's loose, open, and which has some surprisingly strong solo moments – especially from Hackett and Gillespie, who oddly complement each other nicely on the set. Tracks include "Birk's Works", "Love For Sale", "Caravan", and "My Man". CD also features 2 bonus tracks from 1955 – most likely Verve titles – both of them jam session numbers that feature Dizzy with Roy Eldridge, Bill Harris, and Flip Phillips – on a 10 minute "Ballad Medley" and the well-titled "Jam Session".

✨✧ Diana Ross/Jackson 5/Bill CosbyDiana! – Original TV Soundtrack ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great document of a famous 70s TV special from Diana Ross – and a record that also features excellent guest work from Bill Cosby and The Jackson 5 – as well as an odd Motown appearance from Danny Thomas! Ross dominates the set, working with sublime larger arrangements that really showcase her growing power as a solo star – on titles that include "Close To You", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "I Love You", "Remember Me", and "Don't Rain On My Parade". And Bill Cosby steps in for a bit of dialogue with Ross – as they talk together, then lead into a surprising duet on Randy Newman's "Love Story"! The Jackson 5 serve up two nice medley tracks – "I'll Be There/Feelin Alright" and "Mama's Pearl/Walk On By/The Love You Save" – and Danny Thomas does a bit of comedy, but doesn't sing – thankfully.

Grant GreenShades Of Green ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A stellar album from Grant Green – very different than most of his other work for Blue Note, and a sly electric groover recorded with vibist Billy Wooten! The sound here is a bit more spacious than some of Grant's earlier albums, yet no less funky – thanks to a hip undercurrent of soul in the drums, and arrangements from Wade Marcus that keep things fluid throughout. Wooten's vibes are wonderful, a ringing counterpoint to Green's great lines on guitar – and even the more familiar tunes on the record turn out to be really unique readings here – thanks to the arrangements and overall conception. Mellow moments are dripping with plenty of soul, and the funky ones are pretty great too – and titles include a killer medley of James Brown's "I Don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing" and "Cold Sweat", a heavy version of his instrumental groover "In The Middle", and a great original called "California Green" – plus "Never My Love", "Sunrise Sunset", "Got To Be There", and "If You Really Love Me".

Johnny HodgesCreamy ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Swing session with small group backing by Billy Strayhorn, Jimmy Woode, Sonny Greer, and Clark Terry – and which features Johnny's warm tones soloing nicely on comfortable standards. All of side one is a "ballad medley", with a very Creamy sound, and titles that include "But Not For Me", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Whispering", and "Tenderly". The flipside's got a bit more kick, and titles that include "Honey Bunny", "Passion", and "No Use Kicking". LP, Vinyl record album

Diana RossDiana Ross Live At Caesars Palace ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic early demonstration of the solo powers of Diana Ross – a live date from Vegas, and one that has her commanding the stage not just as a singer of soul music, but as a female star ready to rival the talents of any of her contemporaries in the mainstream! Ross shines here with a brilliant brightness right from the start – working with a large ensemble that echoes all her best Motown roots, but which also pushes things out in fuller, more vibrant modes too – as Diana runs through tracks that include old soul favorites, jazz standards, and even some surprising choices from the charts – at a level that's filled with poise, class, and soul throughout. Titles include a great "Supremes Medley", plus "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Corner Of The Sky", "I Love You Porgy", "My Man", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", and a "Lady Sings The Blues Medley" with titles from the Billie Holiday songbook.

✨✧ Sonny Stitt with Booker Ervin & Don PattersonSoul People ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
Twin-saxophone magic from the team of Sonny Stitt and Booker Ervin – playing together here on some great long tracks that get plenty of support from Don Patterson on the Hammond! The set's got a very open, very jamming sort of quality – with Book on tenor, and Stitt on both tenor and alto sax – showing his talents strongly, and bringing a hard-edged confidence to the record that's really great. The quartet's remaining member is Billy James on drums – a frequent partner of Patterson, and a nice loose-edged rhythmic force that really matches the energy of the others. Titles include "Soul People", "Sonny's Book", "C Jam Blues", and a ballad medley of "I Can't Get Started" and "The Masquerade Is Over". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has splitting on the top seam.)
