Buddy ColletteMan Of Many Parts ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Buddy Collette's definitely a man of many parts here – and many talents too, considering the reedwork on the set! Buddy plays alto, tenor, clarinet, and flute – using the horns with wonderful invention that really showcases his unique style of the time – that mix of modern and playful modes you'd hear in the Chico Hamilton group when Collette was around! The album features a few different groups, too – with players who include Gerald Wilson on trumpet, Ernie Freeman or Gerald Wiggins on piano, Red Callender on bass, and Larry Bunker on drums. Titles include "Ruby", "Cycle", "Cheryl Ann", "Jazz City Blues", "Zan", and "Jungle Pipe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original yellow label mono pressing, with deep groove – a great copy! Cover has some light wear.)

✨✧ Buddy Collette with Irene KralBuddy Collette Quintet Featuring Irene Kral ... CD
Studio West, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from both Buddy Collette and Irene Kral – initially recorded for the Navy Swings radio show in the early 60s, and finally presented here to the public on CD! The tracks all feature Buddy's early 60s quintet with Al Viola on guitar and Jack Wilson on piano – and Buddy himself is very strongly the lead soloist in the set, stepping away from some of the more tightly arranged modes of his albums of the 50s, and hitting some wonderfully spontaneous moments on flute, clarinet, tenor, and alto sax. Wilson's piano is as lovely and lyrical as on his best albums as a leader from the time, and provides perfect accompaniment to Kral on the album's vocal tracks – which comprised 6 of the CD's total 14 numbers. Kral tunes include "The Meaning Of The Blues", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "Detour Ahead", and "It's A Wonderful World" – and instrumental tunes include "A Taste Of Fresh Air", "Hunt & Peck", "Emaline's Theme", "Road Trip", and "Soft Touch".

Buddy RichThis One's For Basie ... LP
Verve, 1956. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A lively little set done strongly in a Basie mode – as you might guess from the title! Buddy's on drums, but the real maestro here is Marty Paich – who handled the arrangements, and most likely brought together the batch of west coast jazzers who inhabit the group – including Pete Condoli on trumpet, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Bob Enevoldsen on valve trombone, Bob Cooper on tenor, Buddy Collette on flute and baritone, and Jimmy Rowles on piano. The set's less Buddy-like than it is Marty-ish – and the grooves here have that very fluid Paich approach throughout – but recast slightly to reflect the strong Basie/Hefti groove of the 50s. Titles include "Shorty George", "Ain't It The Truth", "9:20 Special", "Jump For Me", "Blues For Basie", and "Blue & Sentimental". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Norgran pressing with trumpeter logo & deep groove – in great shape!)

Jack Bongo BurgerEnd On Bongos ... LP
Hi Fi/Modern Harmonic, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... On June 16, 2017
Jack "Bongo" Burger was a west coast percussionist with a very similar style to Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo – and in fact, since they're both named Jack, and have a bongo middle name, we always wonder whether or not they're the same person! Whatever the case, this album's a tasty batch of bongo-heavy tracks – with a style that's similar to some of Costanzo's work on Liberty, although perhaps with slightly less of a Latin bent. The group includes Buddy Collette on flute and sax, plus piano, trumpet, electric bass, and some nice odd percussion. Kind of like a combo of some of Collette's jazz work, and the exotic stuff that was also appearing on the Hi Fi label. Tracks include "Jordu", "China Nights Mambo", "Negre Setin", "Chiu Chiu", and "Mambo Burger". LP, Vinyl record album

Chico HamiltonComplete Black Saint/Soul Note Recordings (Reunion/Arroyo/Trio/My Panamanian Friend/Dancing To A Different Drummer) (5CD box set) ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 5CD ... $29.99 41.98
Great work from a key period in the career of drummer Chico Hamilton – a time when he really went back to his roots after cutting some more mainstream albums in the late 70s – and started to experiment strongly with both his rhythmic approach, and a creative sense of instrumentation! The set features five albums, all pretty compelling – each presented in its own LP-style jacket. Titles include Reunion – which features a reunion of Chico's original 50s grop – with Buddy Collette on reeds, John Pisano on guitar, and Fred Katz on cello. The set also fetures two albums with Chico's Euphoria group – Arroyo and My Panamanian Friend – both with some nice Latin elements. The set also features Trio – a trio album with Cary Denigris and Eric Person – and the solo percussion album, Dancing To A Different Drummer. CD

Red NorvoMusic To Listen To Red Norvo By ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Red Norvo's dragged his vibes out into a field of wildflowers – and while we hate to think what that's done to the sound of his instrument (not to mention his hayfever), we can definitely say that the album's a groovy treat from the decade when Red was turning out some of his finest music ever! The "Music To Listen To" title is a nod towards some of the mood music sets of the time – but that quality is here in title only, as the album's definitely an all-jazz affair – one that expands out the original Norvo trio sound to sextet formation – getting some wonderful sounds from Buddy Collette on flute, Bill Smith on clarinet, Barney Kessell on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – all players who can hit the fresh, modern tones that Norvo's known for, but who also help things swing nicely overall. The flute/clarinet mix is especially sweet – a fluttering, bird-like sort of reed effect – and titles include "Divertimento", "Red Sails", "Poeme", "Rubricity", and "The Red Broom". LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing.)

Horace SilverSilver N Wood ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good ... $4.99
Wonderful work from Horace Silver – part of a great run of late 70s sides for Blue Note that unlock a whole new side of his soulful talents! The vibe here is different than the previous United States trilogy – still very righteous, with an overt message too – but served up in these wonderfully warm tones – with loads of great woodwind passages over these wickedly angular rhythms – grooves that are somewhat like those Silver first started forging on his 27th Man album! The arrangements are sublime – and on some cuts handled by Silver, but orchestrated by Wade Marcus – with players who include Tom Harrell on trumpet, Bob Berg on tenor, Buddy Collette and Fred Jackson on flutes, and Jerome Richardson on soprano sax. The rhythm section is key, too – and features Ron Carter on bass and Al Foster on drums! Side one features "The Tranquilizer Suite" – with passages that icnlude "Keep On Getting Up", "Time & Effort", and "Perseverance & Endurance" – and side two includes the excellent "The Process Of Creation Suite" – with "Motivation", "Activation", and "Assimilation". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Red CallenderSwingin' Suite ... LP
Crown, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful bass work from 50s LA player Red Callender – heard here on this classic side recorded for the Modern imprint. Swingin Suite is easily one of Red's tightest sessions – a date that has Callender's basslines strongly leading a nonet of players that includes Harry Jones on trumpet, John Ewing on trombone, Willie Green on alto sax, and Buddy Collette on flute and tenor. Collette's lines have a nice sharp edge throughout, and soar out beautifully amidst the bigger backings – and although a "suite", the whole session's got a much more relaxed feel than that compositional title might make you think. Tracks include "On Again", "Greenery", "Pastel", "Dancers", "October Blue", "Bihari", "Skyline", and "Outlines". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Crown pressing. Cover has a split top seam, and mostly split spine.)

✨✧ Neal HeftiJazz Pops ... LP
Reprise, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy work from the amazing Neal Hefti – one of the best non-soundtrack albums issued under his own name, and a set that's filled with bouncy, catchy little tunes! The style here takes off nicely from Neal's previous work with Count Basie, but also shows some of his upcoming soundtrack styles as well – especially his great penchant for offbeat instrumental phrasing, and whimsical way of penning a groove. The ensemble's filled with great players who include Plas Johnson and Buddy Collette on flutes, Conte Candoli and Gerald Wilson on trumpets, Emil Richards and Larry Bunker on vibes, Earl Palmer on drums, and Francisco Aquabella on percussion – all in a sound that's quite fresh, and really unique! There's a fair bit of flutes in the mix – even more than the Hefti/Basie use of the instrument – and the tunes have that tightly punctuated Hefti sound throughout, making for plenty of groovers throughout! Titles include "Exodus", "Cute", "Like Young", "Take Five", "Moanin", "Lil Darlin", and "Coral Reef". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico HamiltonEllington Suite ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Forget the Ellington in the title, because this is more a moody album of west coast chamber jazz, in the best tradition of the Chico Hamilton group! This album features the version of Chico's group with Paul Horn on flute and alto sax – plus Jim Hall guitar, Fred Katz cello, and Buddy Collette on tenor and alto sax. The sound differs a bit from the version you may know from the CD reissue – as that one features Dolphy in the group – but it's still great, with titles that include "Azure", "In A Mellotone", "Day Dream", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", and "I'm Just A Lucky So & So". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label World Pacific pressing with deep groove. Vinyl is wonderful – cover has some aging, but no splits or other wear.)
