✨✧ Hank Jones TrioBluebird ... CD
Savoy/Nippon, 1955. Used ... $11.99
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". CD

✨✧ Paul Desmond with Jim HallEasy Living ... CD
Bluebird/BMG, 1966. Used ... $3.99
Paul Desmond doesn't get any better than this – blowing his icy cool alto next to warm guitar lines from the mighty Jim Hall – a classic RCA Records pairing in jazz, heard to great effect on this classic album! There's a slight bossa groove to some of the rhythms, which is great for Desmond's sound – and the backing is also free of piano, so the guitar and alto hang together wonderfully by themselves – suspended in space, dipping and turning around each other beautifully! The pair get some very light rhythmic accompaniment from Connie Kay on drums, and either Percy Heath or Gene Wright on bass – on titles that include "That Old Feeling", "Easy Living", "Blues For Fun", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", and "When Joanna Loved Me". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "All Through The Night" and "Rude Old Man". CD

Gil EvansGil Evans Orchestra Plays The Music Of Jimi Hendrix ... CD
BMG/Bluebird, 1974. Used ... $6.99
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".

✨✧ Gil EvansThere Comes A Time ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1976. Used ... $9.99
A pretty great 70s album from Gil Evans – a set that's got some great use of electric instrumentation, and a mighty groove on the best cuts! The overall approach is different than the early modernist sound of Gil Evans, but still very striking – a 70s equivalent to Gil's famous 60s work – and as always with Evans, the players in the ensemble are impeccably well-chosen – as the lineup includes Hannibal Marvin Peterson on trumpet, Billy Harper on tenor, Ryo Kawasaki on guitar, and a young Dave Sanborn handling the solos. Includes the odd spacey Tony Williams number "There Comes A Time", plus a cover of Hendrix's "Little Wing" – both of which have vocals by Peterson. Other tracks include "Aftermath Of The Fourth Movement Children Of The Fire", "Anita's Dance", and "Makes Her Move". CD

Carmen McRaeCarmen Sings Monk (First Editions pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bluebird, 1988. Used ... $3.99
Incredible work from Carmen – one of her last great albums! The set was recorded in 1988 – but it's got an "instant classic" feel that makes it one of the best vocal jazz albums of its generation. Carmen's working with a small group that includes Charlie Rouse, Larry Willis, George Mraz, and Clifford Jordan – singing vocal versions of Monk classics like "I Mean You", "Blue Monk", "Well You Needn't", "Ruby My Dear", and "Ugly Beauty" – most of which have lyrics written by Jon Hendricks! This CD makes the original album even better – and throws in some bonus alternate versions of tracks on the album! CD

✨✧ Charles MingusTijuana Moods (US expanded edition) ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1957. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
Oh how we love this album – and we think it may well be the best album ever from Charles Mingus! The set was recorded in that magical Mingus year of 1957, but oddly not released until 1962 – missing some of the initial frenzy of his discovery during the Atlantic and Columbia years. But the album's actually a treasure that predates the better-known latter sides – with a sharpness and intensity that Mingus hardly ever matched again! The group is one of his strongest ever – with Shafi Hadi on alto, Clarence Shaw on trumpet, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and Bill Triglia on piano. There's a slight Latin vibe, as you might expect from the title – but it's very slight overall, and most of the tunes are in that sharply angular, fully expressive style that flowered most strongly for Mingus in the late 50s. There's not a wasted moment of music on the whole album – with tight solos and incredible rhythms that dominate every second of the extended tracks – and titles include "Dizzy Moods", "Flamingo", "Los Mariachis", "Ysabel's Tabel Dance", and "Tijuana Gift Shop". Plus, this 2CD set features a whopping 19 tracks added to the original album – with the bonus "A Colloquial Dream (aka Scenes In The City)", plus many alternates, breakdowns, and partial takes. A fitting tribute to this amazing album! CD

Sonny RollinsQuartets Featurig Jim Hall ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1962. Used ... $3.99
A double album collecting Newk's excellent quartet recordings with Jim Hall for RCA. As such it contains work from The Bridge and What's New?, plus a few numbers that got tacked onto the Standard Sonny Rollins. Given Hall's gentleness and spare modernity on the guitar, a fan of Rollins' hard-blowing late 50s sessions might not expect the album to work – but instead, it sets up his playing in a whole new mode that brings out a leaner, more confident, more sophisticated solo mode that shows that his time woodshedding in retirement was well spent. 13 numbers in all, including "John S.", "The Bridge", "You Do Something To Me", "Where Are You", "Without A Song", "If Ever I Would Leave You", "Brownskin Girl", "Don't Swtop The Carnival", "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", "My Ship", "Love Letters", "Long Ago (An Far Away)" and "God Bless the Child".

Beaver & KrauseAll Good Men ... LP
Warner, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A higher concept album than usual for the team of Beaver & Krause – a record that still features plenty of cool moog and electronics by the pair, but which also has them teamed up with arranger Jimmie Haskell in a set of tunes that mixes older themes with original numbers! A fair bit of tracks here have vocals – either by Krause, or by female vocalists Cris Williamson, Adrienne Anderson, or Elisabeth Wilson – plus the "celestial choir" on a few tracks. There's a hearkening back here that's a bit confused at some moments – mixing Scott Joplin with the then-common apology to Native American mode – but things sound best on the original numbers, which have picked up a groove a bit more than before, and even have some nice warmer tones we really like. Titles include the spacey spinner "Between The Sun & The Rain", plus "Loves Of Col Evol", "Sweet Williams", "Bluebird Canyon Stomp", "Looking Back Now", "Child Of Morning Sun", and "All Good Men".

Jimmy Gordon & His Jazznpops BandHog Fat ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... About January 24, 2018
A pretty cool little album – 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

Robin KenyattaEncourage The People ... CD
Wolf/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
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".

Early Hank Jones session for Savoy, that, despite the "trio" tag in the title, is actually a session that augments the core group of Jones, Wendell Marshall, and Kenny Clarke, with added players that include Joe Wilder, Matty Dice, and Donald Byrd on trumpet, Herbie Mann on flute, and Jerome Richardson on flute & tenor. Horns come in in varying combinations from track to track – and titles include "Bluebird", "Little Girl Blue", "Alpha", "Wine & Brandy", and "Hank's Pranks". LP, Vinyl record album

The shift of moods, tones, and sounds are as varied as the choice of celebrities appearing with the group on the cover – and the interplay between Paul, Linda, and Denny Laine has really hit its stride – on titles that include one of our all-time Wings favorites, "Nineteen Hundred Eighty Five" – plus "Band On The Run", "Bluebird", "Jet", "Mrs Vanderbilt", "Let Me Roll It", "Mamunia", "No Words", and "Picasso's Last Words (Drink To Me)".

✨✧ Howard CrockettMany Moods Of The Mysterious Howard Crockett ... CD
Omni (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little collection of work from Howard Crockett – a country singer you may not know by name, but who gave the world the song "Honky Tonk Man", as well as some other classics! Not only is Crockett a pretty obscure singer, the work here is from an even more obscure part of his career – singles issued on the Stop, Charay, and Brownfield labels – plus a full album also issued for the latter – all of which display Crockett as a deep-voice singer with a nicely gritty vibe – much more indie than some of the bigger country acts of the time, who were smoothing out their sound – and perfectly suited to put the right sort of punch in his own tunes, as well as a well-selected batch of other material too. As usual with the Omni label, the whole thing's a fantastic discovery in country music – an artist we might have missed otherwise – presented here with 32 tracks that include "Honky Tonk Man", "Soap & Water", "Gonna Find Me A Bluebird", "I'd Like To Be Everybody For Just One Day", "Man With No Face", "The Law Says", "The Big Cat", "You Can't Get Around To Them All Jack", and "The Times".
