Buddy ColletteBuddy's Best ... LP
Dooto, Late 50s. Good ... $3.99
One of the best albums ever from reedman Buddy Collette – a great small group session with a harder edge than some of Buddy's later records for bigger labels! Collette was always one of the more interesting players from the LA scene of the 50s – and although he had his roots in harder jazz styles, he also played a lot of studio sessions – and had an amazing ability to shift through different modes and settings with effortless ease – and also shift his work on different reed instruments too! This album's a nice mix of both sides of his style – with some cuts that have Collette playing flute or clarinet with a lyrical groove, and some more hard-blowing tracks that feature alto and tenor – in a cool quintet that features Gerald Wilson on trumpet, Al Viola on guitar, Wilfred Middlebrook on bass, and Earl Palmer on drums The session's a darn tough one to find, despite its importance in Collette's career – and titles include "Walkin' Willie", "Changes", "The Cute Monster", and "Orlando Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herbie Mann & Buddy ColletteFlute Fraternity ... LP
Mode, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent little album from the team of Herbie Mann & Buddy Collette – one that has both players using a wide range of reed instruments, and not just flute! Herbie and Buddy are wonderfully paired here – in a way that expands past the usual flute jazz mode by adding in bits of tenor sax, alto, and clarinet – as well as a range of different flutes too – not in a mode that's gimmicky, but which complements the lighter sound of the flute with some heavier notes on tenor at just the right moment – in a style that reminds us of some of Jerome Richardson's best records of the time. Rhythm is by the trio of Mel Lewis on drums, Buddy Clark on bass, and Jimmy Rowles on both piano and a bit of celeste – and tracks are long, with a freshly spontaneous feel that's really great! Titles include "Morning After", "Here's Pete", "Theme From Theme From", "Give A Little Whistle", "Herbie's Buddy", and "Pop Melody". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Mode pressing!)

Heinie BeauMoviesville Jazz ... LP
Coral, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $24.99
An obscure west coast session led by reedman Heinie Beau – a player who mostly recorded with film orchestras of the 50s, but who sounds great here in the company of better-known LA names like Howard Roberts, John Graas, Don Fagerquist, Buddy Collette, and Red Callender! The style here is a bit like some of Graas' albums of the time – especially for Decca – tightly arranged, with lots of bold colors and rhythms – but still plenty of space for breakout solo moments on flute, alto, trumpet, tenor, and other reeds. Beau's conception is really wonderful – filled with modern influences, but always strongly swinging – almost in the jazz soundtrack mode you might expect from the title! Tracks include "The Three Heads Of Adam", "In Your Private Eye", "Scotland Yardbird", "The Cool Tin Roof Story", "Moonset Boulevard", "Gullible Travels", and "The Gina Pastrami Cha Cha Cha". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small spot of tape.)

✨✧ Barney KesselEasy Like – Barney Kessel Vol 1 (full color cover) ... LP
Contemporary, 1953/1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album in a brilliant run of work that Barney Kessel did for Contemporary Records in the 1950s – material that forever went onto shape the sound of jazz guitar, and which stands right up there with some of the best of his generation! In a way, the Kessel heard here is even fresher than in later years – as he's playing in a small group mode that breaks down new territory for his instrument – often with reeds from Bud Shank or Buddy Collette – in styles that have some of the slight spaciousness of the Chico Hamilton group, but a bit more straight swing overall. Other players include Arnold Ross or Claude Williamson on piano, Harry Babasin or Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – and the full length album compiles material from earlier 10" LP releases on Contemporary, plus a few more tracks – to make a full set of 12 songs that include "Easy Like", "Bernardo", "Vicky's Dream", "Salute To Charlie Christian", and "North Of The Border". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has ring & edge wear.)

✨✧ Horace SilverSilver 'N Brass ... LP
Blue Note, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautifully soulful set from Horace Silver – hardly the "with brass" session you might guess from the title, and instead a well-integrated album that really showcases a new level of arranging genius from Horace! The set is heavy on hip horns – with work from Oscar Brashear, Bobby Bryant, and Tom Harrell on trumpets – plus Frank Rosolinon on trombone, Jerome Richardson on alto and soprano sax, Buddy Collette on flute, and Bob Berg on tenor – but these instruments are often wrapped up in this warmly rolling groove driven by the bass of Ron Carter and drums of Al Foster – inherently funky, but much more complicated from a rhythmic perspective – and rolling out beautifully with a really imaginative vibe! Tunes are all originals by Silver – wonderful little numbers filled with passion and life – almost painting in sound, with really rich tones and colors throughout. Titles include "The Sophisticated Hippie", "Dameron's Dance", "Barbara", "Adjustment", "Mysticism", and "Kissin Cousins". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner and a small peeled spot from sticker removal.)
