✨✧ 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

✨✧ Milt JacksonBig Band Bags (Big Bags/For Someone I Love – Milt Jackson & Big Brass) ... LP
Riverside/Milestone, 1962. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two excellent early 60s sides from Bags, both casting him in a larger setting than the smaller, tighter ensembles he typically worked in. On Big Bags Jackson takes on a set of 10 standards (mostly) with some help from Tadd Dameron and Ernie Wilkins on larger group arrangements! Milt's the primary soloist, buoyed by an orchestra built around a rhythm section of Hank Jones, Ron Carter and either Connie Cay or Philly Joe on drums, plus loads of great horn players like Clark Terry, Nat Adderley, Melba Liston, James Moody and Jimmy Heath among others. Includes renditions of "Old Devil Moon", "'Round Midnight", "The Dream Is You", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Echoes", "If You Could See Me Now", "Star Eyes", "Namesake", "If I Should Lose You", and "Later Than You Think". The second album of this set is also 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
