Bobby BradfordLost In LA ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1983. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Nothing lost about this set, as Bobby Bradford's work is tight and focused throughout – and stands as a hip west coast contrast to early 80s avant jazz material from points east! There's a feel here that's a lot like some of the Nimbus Records albums of the time – material that's definitely towards the left side of the jazz spectrum, but which is usually never too far out – often tied together with a sense of spirit, or a bit of swing – and at the best moments, a nice little groove that really grabs our attention. Even back in the 60s, Bobby always brought a great sense of rhythm to his farther-out work – and that tradition definitely continues here, thanks to help from the Mark Dresser and Roberto Miguel Miranda on bass, and Sherman Ferguson on drums. Bradford plays cornet, James Kousakis plays alto sax, and titles include "You Known", "Dirty Rag", "Ashes", "Ornate", and "Sho Nuff Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Lee KonitzAn Image – Lee Konitz With Strings ... LP
Verve, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
A rare "with strings" session for altoist Lee Konitz – recorded back in his great years with Verve, set to wonderful arrangements from a young Bill Russo! The style here is a bit darker and more spare than some of the other albums of this type from the time – and Russo brings plenty of somber tones to the record – not in a bad way, but in a style that lets Lee's horn be the most strongly redeeming feature of the session – often stepping forth in relatively unfettered mode, with many of the strings at the lower end of the sound spectrum. Titles include the extended "An Image Of Man", plus "What's New", "Blues For Our Children", "The Daffodil's Sake", and "Music For Alto Saxophone & Strings". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing – with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover spine is split, but the rest is nice.)

✨✧ Ray CharlesModern Sounds In Country & Western Music Vol 2 ... LP
ABC, 1962. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The second installment of one of Ray's greatest albums – and a landmark in the genre of country soul! As the title implies, Ray's singing a host of tunes best known from the country side of the spectrum – but he's working here with arrangements by LA jazzers Marty Paich and Gerald Wilson, to completely re-cast the tunes into the "modern sounds" mode promised in the title. The result is wonderful – a style that gave Ray's career a whole new boost, and a genre that was a perfect foil for his rich bluesy mode of singing. Titles include "No Letter Today", "Take These Chains From My Heart", "Teardrops In My Heart", "Making Believe", and "Hang Your Head In Shame". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing.)
