Hank MobleyHank Mobley Quintet (Blue Note 1550) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An obscure late 50s set from the mighty Hank Mobley – and like all of the tenorist's sides for Blue Note, an essential gem that tops most work by the rest of his contemporaries! The setting here is a really warm and lyrical one – as Mobley's playing with Horace Silver on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, Art Blakey on drums, and the great Art Farmer on trumpet – making one of his rare (and appreciated!) Blue Note appearances on the set! The tracks have a good mixture of hardbop and more lyrical overtones – in a manner that's similar to Silver's work, but with a little more gutbucket soloing on tenor from Mobley. Titles include "Base On Balls", "Fin De L'Affaire", "Funk In Deep Freeze", and "Startin From Scratch". CD

Art BlakeyBuhaina's Delight ... CD
Blue Note, 1961. Used ... $8.99
A landmark recording by a whole new chapter in Art Blakey's career! During the early 60s, Blakey expanded the Jazz Messengers from a quintet to an incredibly tight sextet – adding in the trombone of Curtis Fuller for an extra-punched up frontline that also included Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Wayne Shorter on tenor, who had returned to the group after a short departure. The band was augmented by the wonderfully lyrical and soulful piano of a young Cedar Walton – who brought a strong degree of sophistication, and who was a perfect interpreter of Shorter's rich writing talents. The whole group performs together perfectly on this wonderful (and oft-overlooked) session – especially on the tracks "Shaky Jake", "Backstage Sally", and "Bu's Delight". This CD has four bonus tracks: alternate takes of "Moon River", "Backstage Sally", "Reincarnation Blues" and "Bu's Delight". CD

Art BlakeyIndestructible (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1964. Used ... $9.99
A killer pounding session from Blakey! The record was recorded during Blakey's bright flash of genius in 1964, when the Jazz Messengers were briefly revisited by Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter, with the added horn of Curtis Fuller to add new colors to the group. Cedar Walton's on piano, and his lyrical comping brings the band to new soulful heights. Tracks include "The Egyptian", "Sortie", "Calling Miss Khadija", and "Mr. Jin". CD

Art Blakey QuintetNight At Birdland Vol 3 ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1954. Used ... $22.99
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver – and featuring Clifford Brown on trumpet, just a few months before his early death – plus Lou Donaldson on alto and Curley Russell on bass. The presence of alto instead of tenor makes the sound slightly different than later incarnations of the group – and the overall approach is one that virtually defines the shift from straight bop to hardbop in the 50s – a mode that both Blakey and Silver were key in creating. This unique Japanese-only 3rd volume features alternates and rare tracks not on the original albums – "Wee Dot (alt)", "Blues", "Lou's Blues", and "The Way You Look Tonight". CD

Terence BlanchardMagnetic ... CD
Blue Note, 2013. Used ... $5.99
The continuing evolution of Terence Blanchard – a trumpeter who's had a great sense of restraint in recent recordings – which makes each new musical moment a very nice surprise! This is the first small group set we've heard from Terence in a number of years – and it's got a fresh feel that comes through on the boldness of the very first notes, and on the ever-shifting sense of mood and color that graces the entire set – a style that references Blanchard's work in soundtrack and other large-format settings, but which comes through even more strongly here in the presence of a smaller group! Blanchard's got some great tenor help on the record – mostly from Brice Winston, but also a bit from Ravi Coltrane too – and the other key players on the set are pianist Fabian Almazan on piano, Joshua Crumbly on bass, and Kendrick Scott on drums. The set also features a bit of guest work from Lionel Loueke on guitar and Ron Carter on bass – and titles include "Another Step", "Time To Spare", "Comet", "Hallucinations", "Magnetic", "Don't Run", and "Pet Step Sitter's Theme Song".

Donald ByrdCaricatures ... CD
Blue Note, 1976. Used ... $8.99
Donald Byrd's last Blue Note album with fusion genius Larry Mizell – and a doozy! The record builds off the style of previous Byrd/Mizell outings – like Places & Spaces, Street Lady, and Black Byrd – mixing together a similar blend of heavy rhythms, keyboards, and sweet funky trumpet licks from Donald. The sound here's a bit tighter than on some of the previous records – showing Mizell as an emerging soul genius, soon to click big on some very important R&B outings of the late 70s. Donald's working with a great group – and gets help from the likes of Patrice Rushen, Gary Bartz, David T. Walker, and Alphonze Mouzon – all of whom fit in with the funky program to really kick out some nice grooves! Titles include "Return Of the King", "Dance Band", "Wild Life", "Science Funktion", and "Onward Til Morning". CD

Donald ByrdMustang! ... CD
Blue Note (UK), 1966. Used ... $14.99
One of Donald Byrd's most fantastic records for Blue Note – and one of three gems that he recorded with the great Sonny Red on alto sax! Byrd and Red work magnificently together – and the two of them play with a tightness and funkiness that's missing from a lot of their other records as leaders – this really sharp edge that makes Sonny sound even better than ever, and a slight funkiness in Byrd's trumpet – which really seems to point the way towards his groove of the 70s! Hank Mobley joins the group on tenor, Walter Booker is on bass, McCoy Tyner's on piano, and Freddie Waits is on drums – and the groove is tight and funky, with a mix of hard bop soloing and funkier Blue Note rhythm playing. Red burns throughout, especially on his own "Mustang", and on the cut "Dixie Lee". Other tracks include "Fly Little Bird Fly", "On The Trail", and "I'm So Excited By You". Plus, this CD reissue also includes 2 non-LP bonus cuts! CD

Donald ByrdNew Perspective (non-RVG edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $3.99
A classic album that mixes trumpet and voices in a swirling soulful sound that worked very well for Byrd's career! Byrd's sparkling trumpet fronts a tight septet that includes Hank Mobley, Herbie Hancock, and Kenny Burrell – and which is backed by arrangements by Coleridge Perkinson and Duke Pearson. The sound is beautiful and spiritual, with a sound that mixes Blue Note hardbop with a style that would later show up on labels like Strata East, or in the experiments of Max Roach and Billy Harper. The tracks are long and moody, and the vocal group never gets in the way, but instead backs Byrd in a way that lets him hit new heights, and which gives him a stronger sense of voice. Includes the classic "Christo Redentor", plus "Chant", "The Black Disciple", and "Elijah". CD

Donald Byrd & Doug WatkinsTransition Sessions (Byrd's Eye View/Byrd Blows On Beacon Hill/Watkins At Large) ... CD
Blue Note, 1955/1956. Used 2 CDs ... $32.99
3 rare hardbop sides – issued together as one great 2 CD set! The album features work from 3 records first issued by the short-lived Transition label from Boston – Byrd's Eye View and Byrd Blows On Beacon Hill, both by Donald Byrd (in case you couldn't guess!), and Watkins At Large, one of the few albums ever issued by hardbop bassist Doug Watkins. The feel of the material is great – totally on a par with the Blue Note hardbop work of the late 50s, and featuring many players in common with those recordings – Hank Mobley, Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Duke Jordan, and Art Taylor. The 2CD set features 17 tracks on all, and it's the first time the material's been made available to the US market at an affordable price! Titles include "Return To Paradise", "El Sino", "Doug's Blues", "Crazy Rhythm", "If I Love Again", "What's New", "More Of The Same", and "Phinupi". CD

A sweet trio set from bassist Ron Carter – done with great piano from Kenny Barron and guitar from Herb Ellis – a really sensitive pair who make things swing gently with Carter throughout! Ron's warm basslines really direct the set strongly – and the lean recording style gives his careful notes plenty of space in the spotlight – really underscoring the lyrically brilliance of Barron and Ellis, who deliver a lot more here together than we might expect! Titles include "Blues For DP", "Summertime", "Quiet Times", "For Toddlers Only", "Sweet Lorraine", and "Airegin". CD

Sonny ClarkBlues In The Night ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1958. Used ... $18.99
An overlooked trio session from the great Sonny Clark – and a record that really lives up to its title, with a sweet selection of soulful ballads from the legendary pianist! Given that Sonny always had a slight modern edge, the album's quite different than a record from Oscar Peterson or Red Garland of a similar nature – because even though the tunes are familiar, Sonny really brings in these little inflections and subtle twists that really keep things interesting – as do the rhythm players, who include Paul Chambers on bass and the mysterious Wes Landers on drums. Titles include "Dancing In The Dark", "Blues In the Night", "All Of You", "Can't We Be Friends", and "I Cover the Waterfront". Originally recorded by Blue Note in the late 50s – but only issued many years later! CD

Sonny ClarkMy Conception (plus unissued session) ... CD
Blue Note, 1957/1959. Used ... $14.99
Beautiful hardbop – and one of Sonny Clark's best albums! The My Conception session was originally recorded in 1959, when Clark was at the height of his powers – but it was never issued until 1980, and even then, only in Japan, where it soon went out of print. The set's got Clark at his most lyrical – playing with a lot of hardbop fire, but also some touches of Horace Silver soulfulness, a perfect match for session-mates Donald Byrd and Hank Mobley. Mobley's in particularly fine form at this point, and the whole set's a real winner – even more so since it's paired here with another lost session, one from 1957 that features Clifford Jordan on tenor and Kenny Burrell on guitar. There's a total of 9 brilliantly remastered tracks on the CD – and the set's one of the best bunch of tracks we've ever heard from the great lost piano talent of Sonny Clark. Titles include "Little Sonny", "Junka", "Blues Blue", "Minor Meeting", and "Royal Flush". CD

Johnny ColesLittle Johnny C ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $9.99
A rare session as a leader from trumpeter Johnny Coles – a player who cut some great work in the groups of James Moody and Gil Evans, but who shines even more brightly on this classic Blue Note album! Coles really has an ear for finding the hippest side of his instrument – and he blows with a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – and certainly far from the mellower tones of his previous leader set for Columbia. This album's got a great mix of hardbop and modern ideas – right up there with the best Blue Note had to offer at the time – and the group's filled with equally hip players who include Joe Henderson on tenor, Leo Wright on alto and flute, Duke Pearson on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and either Pete LaRoca or Walter Perkins on drums. Titles include "Heavy Legs", "Hobo Joe", "Jano", and "Little Johnny C". Very hip, very hard, and very swingin! CD

John ColtraneBlue Train (The Ultimate Blue Train edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... $1.99
John Coltrane's classic – and only – recording as a leader for Blue Note! The album's no throwaway date, though – as it stands strongly with both Coltrane's other label work of the time, and with the best of the late 50s Blue Note scene – a time when the label was really cooking at full strength! The groove here is a bit harder, heavier, and hardbop-inflected than some of Trane's late 50s sides with Red Garland – thanks to a lineup that features Lee Morgan on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Kenny Drew on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. There's a crisp modern edge to the record that really holds up beautifully – even after years of play – and titles include "Blue Train, "Locomotion", "Moment's Notice", and "Lazy Bird". This edition includes alternate takes of "Blue Train" and "Lazy Bird"! CD

John ColtraneColtrane Time ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $3.99
This is a repackaged version of an album that was originally issued under Cecil Taylor's name, under the title Hard Drive (and later Stereo Drive) during the late 50s. The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane – in a group that includes Kenny Dorham, Chuck Israels, and Louis Hayes. The music is a startling mix of styles – as Taylor's heavy piano clashes noisily with Trane's free flowing lines on the tenor. It doesn't always work, but it's well worth a listen, and stands as a critical meeting of two important talents that were both best known on their own. Tracks include "Shifting Down", "Double Clutching", and "Just Friends". CD
