Herbie Mann & Buddy ColletteFlute Fraternity ... LP
Mode, 1957. Very Good- ... $7.99
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!)

✨✧ Don Ralke with Buddy ColletteBongo Madness ... LP
Crown, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent session of exotica-tinged Latin jazz – put together by pianist Don Ralke, and featuring some great work from flute player Buddy Collette – in a spirit that's very similar to Collette's own classic Jazz Heat Bongo Beat album! The set's also got some great bongo work by Jack "Bongo" Burger – plus congas from Tom Wofford – and although both players aren't the most autentico of Latin percussionists from the west coast scene at the time, they've got a really evocative approach here that makes for a great little set. Colette's flute is wonderful too – really shading in some great tones and colors –a nd titles are all fresh originals that include "Afro Mambo Alegre", "Mgombo", "Pasion Calienta", "Bembe Negro", "Calypso Cubano", and "Afro Bop". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split spine and bottom seams.)

Jack Millman All StarsShades Of Things To Come ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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. Cover has some light staining.)

✨✧ Chico HamiltonEllington Suite ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1958. Used ... Temporarily 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.)

✨✧ Red NorvoRed's Rose Room/Red's Blue Room (10 inch LP) ... LP
X/RCA, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Very hip work from Red Norvo and his sextet – an evocative album that's divided up into "rose" and "blue" cover images on the front and back – but which unfortunately doesn't provide any data on the players! We can say that in addition to sharp vibes from Red, the set also features guitar from Tal Farlow, plus nice reed work from a player who looks like Buddy Collette, although we can't tell for sure. Titles include "Rose Room", "Blue Rose", "Blue Room", "Blue Lou", and "Serenade In Blue". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small sticker.)

✨✧ VariousPoetry & Jazz (aka Jazz Canto) ... LP
World Pacific, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
A crazy collection of poetry and jazz – but one that doesn't come from as much of the sort of hipster/beat angle as one would expect from this sort of project! Instead, the interpreters take the high art road – with John Carradine, Hoagy Carmichael, Ben Wright, Roy Glenn and Bob Dorough all reading selections penned by Walt Whitman, Dylan Thomas, William Carlos Williams, Langston Hughes, Lawrence Lipton, Philip Whalen, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. The music is very progressive and expressionistic for the period – performed by the Chico Hamilton Quintet, the Gerry Mulligan Quartet, the Ralph Pena-Bob Dorough Quintet, or a special group put together for this recording called the Jazz Canto Ensemble – which features Jack Montrose, Larry Bunker, Paul Horn, Buddy Collette and other west coast players from the LA scene. The sound is a bit more serious than some of the Fantasy Records jazz-meets-poetry experiments of the same time – and titles include "Poets To Come", "Tract", "In My Craft Or Sullen Art", "Night Song For The Sleepless", "Lament", "Dog", "Young Sycamore", "Three Songs", and "Big High Song For Somebody". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover features an autograph from Lawrence Lipton!)
