Dizzy Gillespie/Freddie Hubbard/Clark TerryTrumpet Summit Meets Oscar Peterson (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Pablo (Japan), 1980. Used Gatefold ... $22.99
The trio of trumpeters meets the Oscar Peterson 4 – in a session of long tracks that have a liveish feel in the best Dizzy Gillespie mode! Most of the work here is in classic hardbop blowing style – with the trumpeters stating the head, then breaking out into well-voiced solos that outdo each other with inspiration – but there's also a bit of the lighter, airier quality that showed up on Dizzy's records of the generation too. The horns are mixed a bit too – so that some trumpets are muted, some are open, and Terry plays a bit of flugelhorn – and Peterson's quartet features Joe Pass on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Bobby Durham on drums. Titles include "Daahoud", "Chicken Wings", "Just Friends", and "The Champ". CD

Clark TerryClark After Dark – The Ballad Artistry Of Clark Terry ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1977. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
A great 70s session from Clark Terry – playing flugelhorn here with backings from Peter Herbholzheimer, and sounding wonderfully sweet throughout! There's a spacious, patient quality to Terry's horn that reminds us a bit of his gentler moments in the 60s with Bob Brookmeyer – and even though Herbholzheimer's normally in a fuller funky mode, his backings here are nicely restrained and quite mature – modern enough to have a 70s feel, but never slick or cloying. There's almost an Art Farmer feel to the record at times – and titles include the great original "Clark After Dark", plus versions of "Emily", "Yesterdays", "Nature Boy", "Girl Talk", and "November Song".

Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $6.99
A surprisingly nice set that brings together Clark Terry and Thelonious Monk! Given Terry's bright approach to jazz, it's a bit hard to imagine him and Monk working well together – but at the time of this session, Clark still had a fair bit of an edge – with roots in a number of modern styles of the 50s, and a flair for crafting a compelling line on his horn. The set's got a number of nice originals – and titles include "In Orbit", "Pea Eye", "Argentina", "One Foot In The Gutter", and "Buck's Business". CD

✨✧ Clark TerryMumbles ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... About December 6, 2017
A surprisingly great little record from Clark Terry – filled with warmth, humor, and some really great grooves! The core of the album is the track "Mumbles", one that's based around Terry kind of slurring a scat vocal to a jazzy 60s groove. The track was a minor hit at the time, and Mainstream recorded a whole album around it – using the arranging talents of Joe Cain, who runs through a lot of elements that really make the set cook – from Latin percussion, to Hammond organ grooving, electric guitar, and an overall sound that's got a hip Verve Records feel. Players include Vinnie Bell, Willie Bobo, Grady Tate, and Jerome Richardson – and Cain really makes the record groove in ways that we've never heard on another Terry session. Titles include "Mumbles", "Rum & Mumbles", "Big Spender", "The Mumbler Strikes Again", "El Blues Latino", and "The Cat From Cadiz". CD

Impulse, 1966. Used ... $5.99
Sweet Latin licks from Clark Terry and Chico O'Farrill – cut in a mode that's very similar to O'Farrill's best Verve work of the 60s! The vibe is kind of a mod take on Afro Cuban sounds – not really Latin soul, but with a playful vibe that mixes together jazz and Latin with equal parts – letting Terry solo over the top with sweet trumpety licks, while Chico sets up a crack ensemble that features lots of horns, Latin percussion, and some tasty guitar! The mix of modes is plenty nice – not authentically Latin, but extremely groovy – and titles include "Joonji", "Que Sera", "Tin Tin Deo", "Spanish Rice", "Angelitos Negros", and "Happiness Is". CD

The core of the album's a lot more relaxed than the usual Pablo date – long, stretched-out tracks that are simply titled "Alternate One", "Alternate Two", and so on – played by a rhythm section that features Oscar Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on bass, Joe Pass on guitar, and Bobby Durham on drums – topped with trumpet and flugelhorn work from Clark Terry, Freddie Hubbard, and Dizzy Gillespie!

Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... About December 6, 2017
Wonderful work from one of Clark Terry's best periods – and the kind of stripped-down swinging 60s set that really let him show his most soulful side! The group features Terry on both trumpet and flugelhorn – working in co-leadership with Bob Brookmeyer on trombone – supported by the rhythm combo of Roger Kellaway, Bill Crow, and Dave Bailey. Bailey's drums are nice and tight – arguably a good reason the best Terry records from this time are so good – and titles include a lot of playful originals like "Dancing On The Grave", "Ode To A Flugelhorn", "Green Stamps", "Hawg Jawz", and "Simple Waltz".

✨✧ Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Oscar Peterson's trio is augmented here by a famous guest – trumpeter Clark Terry, whose horn adds a nice bit of punctuation to the set, and makes the record a strong standout in the 60s catalogs of both players! The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising fame at the time merges nicely with the popularity of the Peterson group – and since both players share a talent for mixing earthy moments with tighter playing, the whole thing comes off pretty darn nicely! Peterson's piano is supported by rhythm work from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and Terry not only plays trumpet and flugelhorn, but also vocalizes a slight bit too – sometimes at the same point he's playing his horn! Titles include "Mumbles", "Mack The Knife", "Jim", "Blues For Smedley", "Brotherhood Of Man", and "Incoherent Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Clark Terry & Bob BrookmeyerTonight ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer combination of talents – and one that made a few excellent records in the 60s! Bob Brookmeyer's got a cool, compressed tone – that great approach he developed on valve trombone in the 50s – and it brings a new level of sophistication to the trumpet of Clark Terry here – at a time when the player was really opening up to new ideas, and effortlessly balancing a fresh modern vibe with a swinging sense of soul! The horns work a special magic together – one that's like a more sophisticated take on the sound that Art Farmer and various trombonists could craft in the Jazztet – and rhythm is from the trio of Roger Kellaway on piano, Bill Crow on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums – the last of whom seems to remember the great energy he brought to his own records on Epic a few years before, which also featured Terry. Titles include "Sometime Ago", "Tete A Tet", "Blue China", "Hymn", "Weep", "Step Right Up", and "Blindman Blindman". CD

Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An interesting tribute to the passing of pianist Eddie Costa – mostly because the overall feel is much more in a soulful hardbop mode, quite different than the modern and chamber sides that Costa cut during the 50s! Side one features work by the Clark Terry quartet – with Terry on trumpet, Dick Hyman on piano, Art Davis on drums, and Osie Johnson on bass – and side two features and even better group led by Coleman Hawkins – with Hawk blowing in that great late solo style of his, alongside players that include Sonny Clark, Roy Haynes, and Chuck Israels. Tracks on the album are all long and intimate – mellow, but soulful, with plenty of interesting solo space. Titles include "The Simple Waltz", "Just You, Just Me", "I'm Confessin", and "Things Ain't What They Used To Be". CD

Terry DolanTerry Dolan (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/High Moon, 1972. New Copy ... $16.99 24.99
A never-issued album, but one that stands with the best creative California work of the early 70s – especially that huge wave of new singer/songwriters that flowed from the studios in Los Angeles and the Bay Area! Terry Dolan hails from the latter, and sounds superb on this set of tracks that was originally intended for release by Warner Brothers in 1972, then scrapped at the last minute – one of those great "why?" moments in the history of a record company, as the set may well have been an instant classic if it was released! Terry's got a bit of a down-home vibe at times, but mixes that quality with some well-balanced production from Nicky Hopkins and Pete Sears – in a way that's never a slavish attempt to copy modes, and maybe more in the Gene Clark territory of really finding something new. Both the lyrics and Dolan's vocals are wonderful – and titles include "Purple An Blonde", "Rainbow", "Inlaws & Outlaws", "See What Your Love Can Do", "Magnolia", and "Burgundy Blues". CD features 6 bonus tracks – all variations and different takes on the album tracks. CD

✨✧ Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... CD
Fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from Terry Allen – one of the key underground Texas talents who were helping transform the style of country music in the 70s – and one of the few who maybe never fully got his due! Terry's from the same scene as David Allen Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, and Guy Clark, but his music is much more underground than theirs – maybe only ever designed to be put forth in an intimate club setting, late in the night – where the very conversational style of Allen's songs almost make them feel like barroom musings of a cat who's seen a heck of a lot of life on this planet, but still very able to peer into the souls of those he comes across. This double-length set is Allen's masterpiece – originally issued on a small pressing back in the 70s, and very much an alt-country relic – but from a time when such a thing didn't even exist. Titles include "Cocktails For Three", "High Plains Jamboree", "Amarillo Highway", "Lubbock Woman", "Rendezvous USA", "The Girl Who Danced Oklahoma", "Truckload Of Art", and "The Pink & Black Song". Great reissue – with corrected sound, and a huge booklet of notes on Allen – with essays by David Byrne and others. CD

We can't fathom why it didn't top the charts at the time, but it's really strong stuff! Between Friends has production on Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on the masterful single "State Of Attraction"– and their on board as musicians on some other tracks, too – with production by Randy Ran, Chuck Howard and Jellybean Johnson.

Dave Bailey SextetGetting' Into Somethin' ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
Heavy duty hardbop – one of three amazing Epic Records sessions cut by drummer Dave Bailey! Dave didn't ever cut many sessions as a leader – but when he did, they really cooked hard – with a quality level and sharpness of vision that easily rivals the best on Blue Note or Prestige Records at the time! In fact, this album would have been right at home on either imprint – a smoking session of soulful hardbop, with very long songs that allow plenty of room for solos by players who include Charlie Rouse on tenor, Clark Terry on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and Horace Parlan on piano – who are all in the group with Dave, alongside bassist Peck Morrison. There's a nicely unbridled feel to the whole set – a real "something extra" that's always made the album a treasure – and titles include the side-long 17 minute "Blues For JP", plus "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", and "Evad Smurd".

A sweet little Count Basie get together – one of those small group sessions from the 70s, which made some of these later years of his career such a delight! The album's nicely relaxed – in the best Pablo Records way – almost an extension of the Verve swing modes of the 50s, when players really got to open up more on their solos – but maybe with a bit more Basie bite in the groove, too! The Count's on piano – and the group features Clark Terry and Harry Edison on trumpets, Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor, Budd Johnson on tenor and baritone, Freddie Green on guitar, John Clayton on bass, and Gus Johnson drums. The Green/Basie sense of rhythm is as impeccable as always – and titles include "Ode To Pres", "Basie's Bag", "Like It Used To be", "Swinging On The Cusp", and "My Main Men". LP, Vinyl record album

A very unusual setting for the legendary Ruth Brown – the singer who first rose to fame singing raw-edged R&B tracks for Atlantic Records in the 50s – but who works here in a much jazzier mode overall! The set features backings from Peter Matz – who often accompanied the classier singers of the time – and Ruth really does a great job of mixing her bold vocals with his jazzy charts – soaring to new heights in a way that swings nicely, and makes for much deeper soul than most of Matz's other projects. Musicians include Hank Jones on piano, Clark Terry on trumpet, Barry Galbraith on guitar, Urbie Green on trombone, and Richard Davis on bass – and there also seem to be some female backup singers in a few spots too. Titles include two from Nellie Lutcher "Hurry On Down" and "He's A Real Gone Guy" and Dick Hyman's "Watch It", "Whispering Grass", "I Know Why", "Here's That Rainy Day", and a very interesting interpretation of "On The Good Ship Lollipop" – which almost makes the whole tune sound like a sad ballad.

As you'd guess from the cover, Duke Ellington's leading the group on the album – and most of the tracks here are older Ellington standards, reworked with bold vocal lines from Clooney – in a way that's right up there with any of the usual singers with Ellington's band! Players include Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, and Harry Carney – and titles include "I'm Checkin Out", "Mood Indigo", "Blue Rose", "Grieving", "Hey Baby", and "Passion Flower".

Criss does a fine job, blowing effortlessly in a style that's clearly Bird-inspired, but which has a raspy genius of its own.

The format is kind of far-reaching, but never too stuffy – and in a way, the album offers a great opportunity to hear some of the Ellington players stepping out in a slightly different vibe than the usual Columbia date from the decade. Duke does a bit of narration himself – and singers include Margaret Tynes, Joya Sherrill, and Ozzie Bailey – who beautifully illustrate the shifting passages of the longer suite. Solos are by Johnny Hodges on alto, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Paul Gonsalves on tenor – and titles include "Congo Square", "Madam Zajj", "Drum is A Woman", "You Better Know It", "Rhythm Pum Te Dum", and "Rhumbop".

The tunes here are older ones, but they're taken to some nicely hip territory – thanks to Duke's strong ear for modern changes, and a line up of players that includes Billy Strayhorn on piano, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Clark Terry and Ray Nance on trumpets, Juan Tizol on trombone, and Louis Bellson on drums. Bellson does a great job on the classic "Skin Deep" – a real showcase for his talents in this recording – and other titles include "The Mooche", "Take The A Train", and "Perdido" – plus "The Controversial Suite".

The material here was originally issued on 78s or 45s, and comes together as a great full length representation of Gray at his best – and on this second volume, Wardell works in some bigger groups on great long tracks with a nicely jamming feel!

Black & Blue (France), 1978. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Illinois Jacquet is one of those old school tenorists who never let his talents falter, even when he was far from the limelight – as you'll hear here on a great set of performances recorded live in France in the late 70s! The tracks are long, open, and relaxed – and really seem to bring out the best in Jacquet's horn – as he's paired with the tenor of Eddie Lockjaw Davis on three tracks, the tenor of Paul Bascomb on another, and the trumpet of Clark Terry on one more – while working with help from either Hank Jones or Roland Hanna on piano. Our three favorite tracks are the ones with Davis – which almost have a reworked version of the groove that Eddie cut with Johnny Griffin on a number of records – but overall, the material is all pretty great, and is a strong showcase for the Jacquet raspy sound. Titles include "Lean Baby", "Blues From NO", "Mop Mop", "Cotton Tail", "Blues From Louisiana", and "Robbin's Nest". CD

Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The beginning of a whole new chapter of greatness for singer Eddie Jefferson – a record that took his older style of putting words to jazz solos, and updated it nicely for a new generation in the 60s! Eddie's got a rootsy look on the cover, but the sound here is snappingly hip and sophisticated throughout – a cool soul jazz take on vocalese that's right up there with the best solo work by Jon Hendricks, and sung in a similarly raspy style. The group shifts a bit from track to track – between small combo and larger ensemble arranged by Ernie Wilkins – and players include Clark Terry and Joe Newman on trumpets, Johnny Griffin on tenor, James Moody on alto and flute, Junior Mance and Joe Zawinul on piano, and Barry Galbraith on guitar. Titles include some great original lyrics by Jefferson on the tunes "Soft & Furry", "Keep Walkin", "Things Are Getting Better", and "Back In Town" – and equally great vocals on versions of "Letter From Home", "Billie's Bounce", and "Night In Tunisia".

✨✧ Buddy TerryPure Dynamite ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About December 6, 2017
Subtle dynamite from reedman Buddy Terry – easily one of the most righteous players to work for the Mainstream Records label during its early 70s jazz funk years – and an artist who really brings a wider-ranging, Strata East-like sensibility to this set! Buddy plays tenor, soprano sax, and flute on the date – really stretching out on long, extended tracks recorded in the company of some very hip players – including Eddie Henderson and Woody Shaw on trumpets, Kenny Barron and Joanne Brackeen on electric and acoustic piano, Stanley Clarke on bass, Billy Hart and Lenny White on drums, and Airto and Mtume on percussion! Most tracks build up slowly, with a nicely organic sensibility – egged on by long, stretching solos from Buddy – and titles include "Baba Hengates", "Quiet Afternoon", "Miscegenation", and "Paranoia".

Jim HallCommitment ... LP
A&M, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
A really beautiful little album from Jim Hall – a mid 70s gem that has him recasting his style with a wonderful sound! The album features Hall in a variety of groupings – some quite spare, and featuring only accompaniment from piano (Don Thompson or Tommy Flanagan), drums (Terry Clarke), or vocals (Jane Hall) – while a few other tracks feature Hall in a nice larger group with Flanagan on piano and Art Farmer on trumpet – playing in a warm, compressed sound that's incredibly beautiful. The tunes are all quite fresh – even on the few familiar numbers on the session – and the album's a work of subtle genius that shows why Hall was one of the greatest jazz talents on the guitar during his day! Titles inlcude "Down The Line", "Walk Soft", "One Morning In May", "Lament For A Fallen Matador", "Bermuda Bye Bye", and "When I Fall In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Jim HallJim Hall Live ... CD
A&M, 1975. Used ... $4.99
A work of understated brilliance from guitarist Jim Hall – and one of our favorite records by him! The setting is simple – Hall plays live with a trio, on a set of familiar standards – but the results are remarkable, as both Hall and the rhythm section manage to bring a hell of a lot of swing and imagination into such a tiny space! Hall's always had a rhythmic approach to his work, but here, playing with drummer Terry Clarke and bassist Don Thompson, he really opens into a great groove – stretching things past his usual standard, and bringing a lot more soul into the set than you might expect. The tunes are ones you'll recognize – "Angel Eyes", "Round Midnight", and "The Way You Look Tonight" – but the real charm is what Hall and the trio do with them! CD
