Milt JacksonFor Someone I Love – Milt Jackson & Big Brass ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A surprisingly nice pairing – the vibes of Milt Jackson and some larger horn backings that fall heavy on the trumpet and trombone side of the spectrum! The sound's not nearly as heavy or hokey as you'd expect – thanks to arrangements by Melba Liston – and the horns do a nice job of setting a scene that lets Milt's vibes sneak in and out with effortless ease – coloring things with a great one, and a very rhythmic feel. The album's worth it for one track alone – the really great "Bossa Bags", which grooves with a sound that's everything you'd expect from the title! Other tracks include "Extraordinary Blues", "Save Your Love For Me", "For Someone I Love", "Days Of Wine & Roses", and "Just Waiting". LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label Orpheum pressing. Great heavy glossy cover!)

Stan KentonAdventures In Blues ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good+ ... $2.99
With Stan at the helm, you can bet that this set is anything but "blues" in the traditional sense – and is instead more one of Kenton's tone poems of color – tuned to the darker hues of the spectrum, and served up perfectly in a batch of beautifully shimmering arrangements! There's still plenty of Kenton's modern touches in the way the album's laid out, but the overall feel is moody and blue-toned – arranged mostly by Gene Roland, who also composed all the original tracks for the set. Titles include "Dragonwyck", "Blue Ghost", "Exit Stage Left", "Aphrodisia", "Fitz", and "The Blues Story". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small sticker on front.)

Lee KonitzAn Image – Lee Konitz With Strings ... LP
Verve, 1958. Very Good ... $22.99
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.)

New Bobby BradfordLost In LA ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Cover has small sticker spots.)
