Hank Jones TrioBluebird (80s pressing) ... LP
Savoy, 1955. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of Hank's few non-trio sets as a leader – and a great set of hardbop tunes that features work by Donald Byrd, Jerome Richardson, Herbie Mann, and Kenny Clarke. The horns add in a lot more than you get on the usual Jones album – taking Hank's piano into firey territory that shows he can groove with the best of them! Titles include "Bluebird", "Hank's Pranks", "Alpha", "Wine & Brandy". Plus, the CD features two previously unissued alternate takes! LP, Vinyl record album

Gil EvansGil Evans Orchestra Plays The Music Of Jimi Hendrix ... CD
BMG/Bluebird, 1974. Used ... $4.99
Gil plays Jimi? Sounds like a gimmick, but it comes off pretty darn great – and it helps you forgive him for trying to convince the kids that he's not as old as his grey hair might make you think! As always with Evans, the key to the album is a beautiful balance between the strength of the players and vision of the arrangements – a hip mix of musicians who include Billy Harper on tenor and flute, Marvin Hannibal Peterson on trumpet, and both Ryo Kawasaki and John Abercrombie on guitars! Arrangements are great too – handled by Tom Malone, Warren Smith, and Howard Johnson – all of whom make the album way more than just an instrumental reading of Jimi Hendrix tunes – and instead a great platform for improvisation that uses tunes that include "Up From The Skies", "Foxy Lady", "Gypsy Eyes", "Voodoo Chile", "Angel", "Crosstown Traffic", and "Castles Made of Sand".

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieDizziest ... LP
Bluebird/RCA, Late 40s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great great 2LP set that features some of Dizzy's incredible late 40s work for Bluebird! The set not only includes some killer bop material, of the sort that made Dizzy an instant fave, even with folks who hated Bird – but it also includes some of Dizzy's early cubop recordings, which mixed jazz soloing and Latin rhythms. There's a huge amount of titles here, and nearly all of them are the stuff of legend. Tracks include "Minor Walk", "Cubana Be", "Cubana Bop", "Algo Bueno", "Night In Tunisia", "Ow!", "Two Bass Hit", and "Guarachi Guaro". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/Bluebird, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful record that serves as both a showcase for Ornette's "serious" writing efforts, and his ability to play with a larger ensemble. Side one features Ornette playing trumpet solos with The Philadelphia Woodwind Quintet as they perform his "Forms & Sounds". Side two features recordings of Ornette's "Space Flight" and "Saints & Soldiers" performed by The Chamber Symphony of Philadelphia Quartet, a string ensemble that brings a new light to Ornette's writing. Great stuff, and a hard record to find. CD

Tommy FlanaganFlanagan's Shenanigans ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... $13.99
The title's a bit of a rough pun, but don't hold that against it – as the album's got pianist Tommy Flanagan nicely stretching out – expanding past his familiar trio mode on a few great tracks on the set! Make no mistake, the core trio is great – with help from Jasper Lundgaard on bass and Lewis Nash on drums – but the first three tracks on the set also feature the Jazzpar Windtet – a group of added reeds who bring a nice layer of color to the set, almost making us wish that Flanagan had recorded more in such a mode! Tenorist Jasper Thilo joins the group on one other number – leaving the rest as trio tracks – and titles include "Minor Mishap", "For Lena & Lennie", "Let's", "Tin Tin Deo", "The Balanced Scales", "Eclypso", and "Beyond The Bluebird".

Jimmy Gordon & His Jazznpops BandHog Fat ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
A pretty cool little record – one of those early messed-up albums on the Flying Dutchman label, cut when the company was saying "f this" to concepts of genre, and throwing together a lot of strange elements in the course of a single record. Drummer Gordon leads a group that includes Buddy Childers on trumpet, Tom Scott and Jim Horn on reeds, Mike Melvoin on piano, and Gary Coleman on percussion – all coming together in a groovy mix of styles that's like some of Scott's early work at the time, or some of the best Steve Marcus sides on Vortex. The album's got a great slightly funky take on "Sunny", a trippy vibes based number called "Walter L", and a great Tom Scott groover called "Flying Dutchman". Other tracks include "Bluebird", "Hog Fat", "Need Not Be Lonely", and "The Preacher". CD
(Part of the Flying Dutchman 1000 Master Collection!)

Johnnie TaylorLive At The Summit Club ... CD
Stax, 1972. Used ... $4.99
A previously-unreleased live show from the legendary Johnnie Taylor – recorded during his huge early 70s years for Stax Records, and easily one of his grittiest performances from the time! The tracks here show Taylor really stretching out at the club – extending his hits and bringing in a lot more to the songs – bits of patter with both the band and audience, plus his raps on a number of topics – all backed up by some live instrumentation that has a lot more edge than Johnnie was getting on some of his studio records! The sound quality is still quite good – with great recording of Johnnie's vocals especially – and although a few of these cuts appeared in edited form on Wattstax 2, the CD is the first time any of the work has been presented in its full, extended, entirety! Titles include "Take Care Of Your Homework", "Steal Away", "Little Bluebird", "I Don't Wanna Lose You", "Who's Making Love", "Hello Sundown", "Stop Doggin Me", and "Jody's Got Your Girl & Gone". CD

✨✧ SouliveCinematics Vol 1 (with bonus download) ... LP
Soulive, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The cover here is a bit different than usual for a Soulive release, and the sound is a bit different too – as the trio definitely explore some of the cinematic funk modes promised in the title! The drums are heavy and the keyboards are warm, but there's also modes here that go back farther than their usual 70s-styled groove – as the keyboards of Neal Evans and drums of Alan Evans mix with these flowing, chromatic lines from the guitar of Eric Krasno. The set's just an EP, but all the songs are great – and titles include "Kings March", "Bluebird", "Waves", "Millers Last Stand", and "Sidekick". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMemphis Rent Party – The Blues, Rock, & Soul In Music's Hometown ... LP
Fat Possum, 2018. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A pretty great little collection – put together by Memphis music expert Robert Gordon in support of his book of the same name! The sounds here aren't overdone Memphis cliches – no Elvis hits or Stax Records standards – and instead, the record showcases those criss-crossing modes that have always been the most interesting thing about the city – rural bluesmen going urban, country singers going rock, and even rockers picking up all the earlier elements to craft something very different and personal. The tracks are pulled from recordings that span the early 60s to the present, and many of them are previously unreleased and provided to Gordon by the artists themselves – making the whole thing a completely essential set, even if you already love some of these performers. Titles include "Chevrolet" by Luther Dickinson & Sharde Thomas, All Night Long" by Junior Kimbrough, "Desperados Waiting For A Train" by Jerry McGill, "Johnny Too Bad" by Alex Chilton, Harbor Lights" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Little Bluebird" by The Fieldstones, "Same Thing On My Mind" by Mose Vinson, "Defrost Your Heart" by Charlie Feathers, "I'd Love To Be A Hippie" by Jim Dickinson, "Frame For The Blues" by Calvin Newborn, "Why Don't You Come Home Blues" by Furry Lewis, and "Drop Your Mask" by The Panther Burns.

✨✧ Robin KenyattaEncourage The People ... CD
Wolf/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Post-Atlantic work from Robin Kenyatta – but an album that follows in a very similar mode! This date was done for the Wolf subsidiary of TK Records, but it's got a very hip New York groove – one that's almost even more righteous than some of Robin's earlier work, with some excellent arrangements from Arthur Jenkins – who's managed to fill the set with a great sense of soul! Kenyatta's alto and soprano sax are set up with keyboards from Jenkins and Richard Tee, plus bass, guitar, percussion, and some great backing vocals at points – used sparingly, but in ways that almost remind us of Oneness Of Juju at some of their smoother moments. Kenyatta's reeds have a Plunky-like feel too – more inside than the Juju work of the mid 70s, but pointing towards Plunky's smoother sounds to come. Given that the vocal group features Gwen Guthrie, Vivian Cherry, and Patti Austin, you can bet they sound pretty sweet – and titles on the set include "Love Me", "Oh Oh Oh", "You", "Bluebird", and "Of Life & Love".

✨✧ Beach BoysBeach Boys 69 – Live In London ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Beach Boys live in London at the end of the 60s – working here without Brian Wilson in tow – as indicated by a postcard addressed to him back home, displayed prominently on the front cover! Despite Brian's absence, the group's still in fine form – harmonically tight, and returning to a number of earlier themes in their songs – singing in front of what must clearly be a hugely enthusiastic crowd, if we're to judge by the applause. The concert was something of a reminder to the group that they had plenty to offer, even through Brian's ups and downs – and in a way, it really set the stage for the reputation and touring the group would do strongly in the 70s. Titles include "Bluebirds Over The Mountain", "God Only Knows", "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring", "Aren't You Glad", "Do It Again", "Wake The World", "Darlin", and "Wouldn't It Be Nice". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing.)
