Buddy ColletteBuddy Collette & His Swinging Shepherds At The Cinema ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Buddy takes his Swinging Shepherds crew to the movies on this one – serving up a set of tunes from 40s and 50s films that all come off perfectly with the group's multi-flute approach! The sound's nicely mellow at times, but still has that tightly arranged west coast modern style that made the group's first record so great. Players include Paul Horn, Bud Shank, and Harry Klee on flutes – plus Jim Hall on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Titles include "The Bad & The Beautiful", "The Shrike", "Invitation", "Ruby", "Swinging On A Star", and "Intermezzo" LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some corner wear.)

✨✧ Buddy ColletteMan Of Many Parts ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(Yellow label pressing, with deep groove – nice and clean! Cover has a split top seam, and both cover and label have a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Buddy CollettePolyhedric ... LP
Jolly (Italy), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A rare European date from reedman Buddy Collette – and arguably one of his hippest albums ever! The set was recorded in Milan in 1961, and features a great lineup not only of Italian players, but which also includes the legendary Dusko Goykovich on trumpet – bringing in a nicely harder sound next to Buddy's work on flute and alto sax! Tracks have a well-arranged feel – the tighter structures of the Italian jazz scene of the time, but with sharper edges than Buddy's 50s work in LA – and given that Collette wrote nearly every number on the set, the album's a great discovery of his deep talents as a writer. In addition to Goykovich on trumpet, other musicians include Renato Sellani on piano, Dino Piana on trombone, Jimmy Pratt on drums, Gianni Basso on tenor, and Franco Cerri on guitar – and Armshed Shobey plays a bit of bongos on a few tracks, adding in a nicely exotic feel. Titles include "Skater For Mater", "Blues", "A Taste Of Fresh Air", "Pickford Street", "Paddy", and "Blues For Nicola". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Buddy Collette & The Poll WinnersPorgy & Bess – Modern Interpretations ... LP
Interlude, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
An obscure Porgy & Bess album – originally issued on the Interlude label, and featuring Buddy Collette and Jim Hall with the organ of Gerald Wilson, the accordion of Pete Jolly, the bass of Red Mitchell, and the drums of Louis Bellson. This unusual lineup really does a great job of reworking the original Gershwin tunes – using the odd instrumentation and playful arrangements to put a bright new face on tracks that include "Bess You Is My Woman", "Where's My Bess", "Summertime", and "There's A Boat That's Leavin For New York". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow vinyl pressing, with deep groove. Cover has a split spine and a few small name stickers on back.)

✨✧ Red Norvo with Buddy ColletteAd Lib ... LP
Liberty, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest Red Norvo records ever – a rare outing for Liberty that features Buddy Collette on reeds, bringing in a new level of color to the Norvo group! Red's work on vibes is precise and nicely chromatic – often coming across in waves of sound on the mellower tracks, and with a poppingly melodic quality on the more upbeat ones. Other players include Dick Shreve on piano, Bill Douglass on drums, and either Curtis Counce or Joe Comfort on bass – and titles include "A Few Days After Xmas", "Tar Pit Blues", "Shreve-Port", "The Brushoff", and "Fifth Column". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Jazz PickersJazz Pickers – For Moderns Only ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
The "pickers" in the group's name refers to the way they play – tight and plucked, in the manner of some of the work of the Chico Hamilton quintet of the late 50s. No surprise, the group features Chico's reedman Buddy Collette on flute, and cellist Harry Babasin on cello (natch!) – as well as drums and vibes by Bob Harrington, additional drums by Bill Douglas, and guitar by Don Overberg. The sound is very Hamilton-esque overall – which is a-ok with us – and titles include "Bebe", "Influtration", "When You Love Someone", "RH Factor", "Easy Pickins", "Rap Scallion", and "Monti Cello". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue and silver Mercury pressing with a deep groove.)

Marvin JenkinsBig City ... LP
Palomar, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A damn great little record – a small label indie side, but a set that had an unusually strong influence on vocal jazz in the 60s – really setting a new standard for the generation to come! Marv swings things with a hip, sophisticated style – shaking off some of the excesses of the Billy Eckstine generation, going for the leaner modes of the Frank Minion set – and coming up with some groovy tunes that really sparkle in his hands! Marvin plays piano and celeste, and the set also features organ from Charles Kynard and Groove Holmes, flute and tenor from Buddy Collette and Clifford Scott, trumpet from Carmell Jones, and guitar from Hank Crawford – about as hip a backing group as you could hope to pull from the LA scene! The set includes the killer "Big City" – penned and sung by Jenkins, but covered by plenty of others – plus "Chicago", "Small Town", "City Blues", "Visit Me Today", and "I'm Always Drunk In San Francisco". LP, Vinyl record album
(In nice shape. Cover has some light wear.)

Barney KesselMusic To Listen To Barney Kessel By – Barney Kessel Vol 4 ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A classic Kessel album for Contemporary – one that features Barney's guitar in a set of slightly larger backings, all arranged by Barney himself! The approach is a bit different from some of Kessel's more stripped-down albums of the time – as Barney works with instrumentation that includes a fair bit of flute and clarinet work by players who include Buddy Collette, Jules Jacob, George Smith, and Ted Nash – all supported by straighter piano, bass, and drum rhythms. The mix of guitar and reeds is quite nice, and makes for a warmly lyrical sound on the set – a sound that Kessel is perfectly suited for – nicely sophisticated without getting too coldly academic. Titles include "Blues For A Playboy", "Cheerful Little Earful", "My Reverie", "Carioca", "Indian Summer", "Fascinating Rhythm", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original yellow label pressing with deep groove.)

Jack Millman All StarsShades Of Things To Come ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A great lost treasure from the LA scene of the 50s – one of the few albums recorded by trumpeter Jack Millman as a leader, working here with a well-named set of "all stars" that includes Jimmy Giuffre, Buddy Collette, Harry Babasin, and Larry Bunker. The set's got a similar feel to other west coast work of the time, but the tracks are tighter, more composed, and a bit more swinging – sort of halfway between swing and the chamber jazz of some of the headier groups. Titles include "The Great Lie", "Along About F", "Butterfingers", "Thinking Of Russ", and "Da Bloosiest Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy blue label pressing.)

✨✧ Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton – Jazz Milestone Series ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1950s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 60s collection that brings together some of Chico's best early work for Pacific Jazz – including his groundbreaking Quintet, a group that completely redefined the sound of jazz on the west coast! The album's filled with playful tracks that feature Chico's unique rhythms next to instrumentation that includes guitar, flute, cello, and alto – with players that include Eric Dolphy, Jim Hall, Paul Horn, and Buddy Collette. Titles include "Soft Winds", "Satin Doll", "Caravan", "Taking A Chance On Love", "Sleep", "Take The A Train", and "Siete Quatro". LP, Vinyl record album
