Gary Burton, Sonny Rollins, Clark Terry3 In Jazz ... LP
RCA, 1963. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A great record that features work not on any other album! The set's a compilation of sorts – but it's really more of a "showcase", one that features the work of three of RCA's brightest jazz stars at the time. A young Gary Burton plays "Hello Young Lovers", "Gentle Wind & Falling Tear", "Blue Comedy", and "Stella By Starlight" with a group that includes Jack Sheldon on trumpet. Sonny Rollins blows on "You Are My Lucky Star", "I Could Write A Book", and "There Will Never Be Another You" with the great group that included Don Cherry, Henry Grimes, and Billy Higgins. And Clark Terry rounds out the set with "Blues Tonight", "Sounds Of The Night", and "Cielito Lindo". LP, Vinyl record album

Gary McFarland & Clark TerryTijuana Jazz ... LP
Impulse, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
A very groooooovy set! This one has Gary working with his "& Co" ensemble – including here the 2 guitars of Barry Galbraith and Toots Thielemans, the fender bass of Bob Brookmeyer, and the trumpet work of Clark Terry and Joe Newman. The groove is jazzy Mexican – kind of a way hipper take on the Tijuana sound than Herb Albert could ever hope for – and with Gary on organ, vibes, and marimba, the core groove is really great all the way through. Very hip stuff – and with tracks that include "Fantastic, That's You", "South Of The Border", "Tijuana", "Mary Jane", "Granny's Samba", "Soul Bird", and "Ira Schwartz's Golden Dream".

Shirley Scott & Clark TerrySoul Duo ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
A sweet 60s session from the team of Shirley Scott and Clark Terry – musicians who never played together regularly, but who really work wonders on this unique record! Shirley's got that perfect tone on Hammond she hit during her Impulse Records years – a groove that's leaner and cleaner than Prestige sessions of a few years before – and Terry's got that cool mix of muted sounds and soulful undercurrents that really shown during his work with Bob Brookmeyer – a surprisingly great mix here for Scott's organ lines, especially when mixed with the great grooves of the rhythm section! The set features Mickey Roker on drums, and either Bob Cranshaw or George Duvivier on bass – and titles include "Heat Wave", "Taj Mahal", "Clark Bars", "Up A Hair", "Soul Duo", and "Joonji".

Clark TerryCT Meets Monk (aka In Orbit) ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good+ ... $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". (Also issued under the name Clark Terry In Orbit.)

Clark TerryHappy Horns Of Clark Terry ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
A really great little album – one that really gets at the bright, joyous feel that Clark Terry brings to his music! Despite the "happy" in the title – which might make you think this one would be a bit silly – the album's a pretty great record! Terry plays both trumpet and flugelhorn (hence the "horns" in the title) – and he's working with a spare, tight, and surprisingly creative group that includes drummer Walter Perkins, bassist Milt Hinton, pianist Roger Kellaway, and the sax team of Phil Woods and Ben Webster. Tunes are light and playful, but never sloppy – instead quite inventive, and done in a way that's halfway between Terry's own late 50s work as a leader (as on Argo), and some of his work on sessions like Ed Thigpen's magnificent Out Of The Storm. Titles include "Jazz Conversations", "High Towers", "In A Mist", "Rockin In Rhythm", "Return To Swahili", and "Impulsive". LP, Vinyl record album

Clark TerryIncomparable Clark Terry ... CD
Candid (UK), 1960/1961/1992/1993. New Copy ... $9.99 11.98
A compelling collection of work from the late trumpeter Clark Terry – material from two different slices of his career, brought together in a really illuminating way! The first half of the album features tracks from Terry's early 60s sessions for the Candid label – not just work from his own great album with Seldon Powell and Yusef Lateef on tenor and flute, but also an especially great date with Cecil Taylor on piano, Archie Shepp on tenor, Steve Lacy on soprano, and Roswell Rudd on trombone – really showing Clark holding his own amidst these important modernists! The later work is equally nice – but in a very different way – a mature Terry blowing beautifully in a relaxed live setting, with players who include Seldon Powell on tenor, Jesse Davis on alto, and either Barry Harris, Roland Hanna, or Don Friedman on piano. Titles include "Jumpin Punkins", "Hackensack", "Jive At Five", "The Snapper", "Ow", "Flintstones", "Blues For Rebecca", "Rhythm Ride", and "Naystye Blues". CD

Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used ... $5.99
A great early date as a leader from trumpeter Clark Terry – one cut during the stretch when he was keeping company with players like Thelonious Monk and Johnny Griffin! The latter player is a key member of Terry's group here – as Johnny's tenor adds a nice sharp edge to Clark's trumpet – mixing modern and bop inflections wonderfully in a solid quintet setting that also features Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. Titles include "Serenade To A Bus Seat", "That Old Black Magic", "Cruising", "Boardwalk", "Boomerang", and "Digits". CD

Clark Terry & Chico O'FarrillSpanish Rice ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $26.99
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".

A compilation of Joe Gordon, Art Mardigan, Paul Gonsalves and Clark Terry each leading their own bands on a couple of tracks. All of the players and songs are too numerous to mention here but, for instance, the record features Art Mardigan on drums and he is joined by such performers as Milt Gold on trombone for a couple of songs which include "I've Found A New Baby". Paul Gonsalves plays tenor sax with Junior Mance on piano and plays such tunes as"It Don't Mean A Thing". Joe Gordon plays trumpet with Charlie Rouse on tenor and they play "Evening Lights", just to name a few of the performers and tracks! LP, Vinyl record album

Clark Terry/Bob BrookmeyerPower Of Positive Swinging ... CD
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Used ... $6.99
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".

Clark Terry/Coleman HawkinsEddie Costa – Memorial Concert ... LP
Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $11.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

Gene Ammons & Sonny Stitt with Jack McDuffSoul Summit – Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Prestige (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $9.99 18.98
The brain trust of soul jazz in the early 60s – led by tenorist Gene Ammons on both albums! Soul Summit Volume one features Ammons and Sonny Stitt on tenor, plus Jack McDuff on Hammond – a definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting plenty of room to do their thing! Both Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt are on tenor in the front, working with the respect and confidence they'd forged together on other co-led sessions from the time – and Jack McDuff's a great addition to the set, playing Hammond with his newly-lean tone, and really helping things move along nicely. Drummer Charlie Persip has a nicely booming style here – one that gets the group out of the box from the get-go, and McDuff's handling all the bass work on the organ, which always makes for a tight rhythmic romp! Most tunes are in that great raw Prestige mode from the old days, as you'd guess by titles like "Tubby", "Dumplin", and "Shuffle Twist" – alongside other numbers that include "Sleeping Susan" and "Out In The Cold Again". Soul Summit Vol 2 is a set that's less a "summit" than a great collection of groovy work for Prestige Records in the 60s – tracks that didn't make it onto other full albums of the time, but which feature material by some of the most soulful talents on the label! Tenorist Gene Ammons is the main star here – stretching out wonderfully on most numbers on the record – although the set also features added tenor work from Red Holloway, George Barrow, and Harold Vick! The mighty Jack McDuff lends his Hammond to a few tunes, Etta Jones sings on three numbers, and the record even features trumpet from Clark Terry, alto from Oliver Nelson, and congas from Ray Barretto too – on cuts that include "Scram", "Cool Cool Daddy", "Ballad For Baby", "If You Are But A Dream", "But Not For Me", and "Love I've Found You".

Sweet trumpet work from one of Duke Ellington's best sidemen – done for Mercury in 1958 with some very tight arrangements by Anderson and Ernie Wilkins – all in a mode that show's a bit of Cat's Ellington association, but which also opens up in some other swinging modes – including a bit of Basie, and even some wider ranging styles. Cat's in the lead on trumpet, getting support from other players on the instrument – including Clark Terry, Ernie Royal, and Ray Copeland – plus Jimmy Cleveland and Frank Rehack on trombone, Earl Warren on alto sax, Jimmy Forrest and Ernie Wilkins on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone. Titles include "Little Man", "Cat's In The Alley", "June Bug", "Adorable D", "Nina", "Birth Of The Blues", and "Blue Jean Beguine". LP, Vinyl record album

Monterey Jazz Festival/Concord, 1972. Used ... $5.99
A rare live date from Art Blakey – recorded right around the same time as his Giants Of Jazz concert album for Atlantic in 1972! Like that set, this one features Blakey working with a group of bigger stars than his usual Jazz Messengers – a compelling assemblage of players that includes Thelonious Monk on piano, Roy Eldridge and Clark Terry on trumpets, Kai Winding on trombone, and Sonny Stitt on both alto and tenor sax! The feel is less Blakey-like than some of Art's other material – and more in a classic bop-styled approach overall – but that's no complaint, given the quality of the work, and the strength of the solo players. Titles include "Blue N Boogie", "Round Midnight", "Stardust", "Lover Man", "Perdido", "The Man I Love", and "Night In Tunisia". CD

Ray BrownRay Brown With The All-Star Big Band ... LP
Verve, 1962. Good+ ... $1.99
A standout session from bassist Ray Brown – one of a few 60s big band sessions recorded for Verve, featuring some searing solo work from Cannonball Adderley! Brown's name as a leader is possibly more as a compadre than the main driving force of the record – as the arrangements here are by Ernie Wilkins, often in the tightly soulful bag he was laying down at the time – and Adderley's presence as the main soloist certainly gives a Cannonball flair to the record. But there's definitely plenty of Brown's warmth guiding the whole session – and other players include Nat Adderley, Clark Terry, Melba Liston, Budd Johnson, and Yusef Lateef. Some tracks have Brown's bass right out front in the arrangements, dipping nicely and adding into the groove – and titles include "Tricotism", "Cannon Built", "Thumbstring", "Two For The Blues", and "Work Song".

Hank De ManoHank De Mano Quartet In Concert (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Freeway/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Brilliant work from Hank De Mano – a rare set of live material, recorded in a really stretched-out, open formation that's quite unique for the time! Hank plays flugelhorn throughout the set – blowing in the spacious tones remind us a bit of Art Farmer's handling of the instrument, or of the wonderful work Clark Terry did on the horn when working with Bob Brookmeyer. Like both of those players, Hank's sound here is a wonderful balance of tone and timing – never too rushed, and always taking the time to find the right sort of style and phrasing for each tune. He's working here with a very well-matched group, too – one that features a young Frank Strazzeri on piano, plus Monte Budwig on bass and Nick Martinis on drums. Strazzeri's especially great, and shares a similarly fluid sensibility with De Mano – and titles include long takes on "Summertime", "Delilah", "Long Ago & Far Away", and "Angel Eyes". CD

A beautiful jazzy score by Duke Ellington – and a fitting companion to this classic Otto Preminger film! The record captures Ellington at a perfect moment – right during his Indigos period of increased sophistication, when his band was at an all-time level of perfection – and really shaking free of the too-familiar modes of the past. Ellington's music has a wonderful range of feeling here – even more so than usual, given the shifting scenes of the film – and the players are an all star lineup that includes Clark Terry on trumpet, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Johnny Hodges on alto, and Jimmy Hamilton on clarinet. Titles include "Upper & Outest", "Almost Cried", "Sunswept Sunday", "Happy Anatomy", "Flirtibird", and "Low Key Lightly". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke EllingtonBethlehem Years Vol 1 (aka Historically Speaking) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The album's a bit less "historical" than you might guess from the title – at least at the time it was issued in the mid 50s! The material is from Chicago sessions recorded in 1956 – unusual non-Columbia material for the period, featuring the Ellington group working in a slightly older-styled mode. Much of the material is from the earlier songbook of the orchestra – but it's done here with some slight modern touches that show the 50s impulses of the group firmly in place. Players include Cat Anderson and Clark Terry on trumpet, Johnny Hodges on alto, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, and Harry Carney on baritone sax – and titles include "Midriff", "Ko Ko", "Lonesome Lullaby", "Upper Manhattan Medical Group", "Jack The Bear", "Stompy Jones", and "Creole Love Call".

Duke EllingtonDuke Ellington Live At The Newport Jazz Festival 1959 ... CD
EmArcy, 1959. Used ... $7.99
A rare slice of Duke Ellington at Newport in the 50s – recorded live at the festival in 1959, but unlike other sessions of the time, never issued on record! The set remained unissued until Duke's 90th birthday, and it's a great discovery that easily matches the strength of Ellington's larger live recordings for Columbia at the same time. As is usual for this type of outing, there's a number of shorter tracks that reprise Ellington favorites for the crowd – but those are offset by longer, more serious works that are deeply complex, the highlight of which is "Idiom 59", a great lost composition done especially for the Festival! The full performance runs for over an hour – with players that include Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Harry Carney, and Johnny Hodges – and other tunes include "Cop Out", "Rockin In Rhythm", "Skin Deep", "Jam With Sam", "Perdido", and "Jones".

Massively groovy work from Chico Hamilton – one of his standout swingers for Impulse Records in the 60s, and a set that really showcases all the changes in music he'd made for the decade! The set features some wonderful reed work from Jerome Richardson and Charlie Mariano, plus some especially great guitar from Gabor Szabo – a player who was rising to fame in Hamilton's group, but also stands out here with lots of the breezy grooves he'd bring to his own dates for Impulse. Tracks are short, but in a good way that really keeps them focused – and other players who complete the groove include Clark Terry on trumpet and Ron Carter on bass – both of whom nicely pick up Chico's sense of adventure and humor. Titles include "Monday Monday", "Daydream", "Stella By Starlight", "Evil Eye", "Manila", "That Boy With The Long Hair", and "Monday Monday". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label mono pressing!)

Earl HinesOnce Upon A Time ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
One of our favorite records by Earl Hines – a hip little comeback set, recorded in the mid 60s with an Ellingtonish lineup that includes Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Ray Nance, Lawrence Brown, Jimmy Hamilton, and Johnny Hodges. Hines' piano is certainly a strong force in the record, but even more delightful is the solid feel of the players overall – working with that complete coherence found in the best 60s sides by Duke, but touched here with some of Hines' sprightly approach to the melody. Titles include "Once Upon A Time", "Black & Tan Fantasy", "You Can Depend On Me", "Hash Brown", and "Fantastic That's You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label mono pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Johnny HodgesBig Sound ... LP
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $18.99
Hodges leads a large group of Ellington players that includes Willie Cook, Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Jimmy Hamilton, Harry Carney, Ray Nance, and Jimmy Woode. The overall sound has that Ellington-minus-Ellington, plus-Hoges feel of similar Verve sessions like these – with lots of nice strong Hodges tenor work in the foreground. Titles include "Digits", "Viscount", "Segdoh", "An Ordinary Thing", and "Little Rabbit Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc stereo pressing, with deep groove. Cover is nice!)

Milt JacksonBig Bags – Milt Jackson Orchestra ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A sweet larger group session from vibist Milt Jackson – proof that he was really trying to stretch his wings, and get into new things during the 60s! The set's got Milt working with some great help from Tadd Dameron and Ernie Wilkins on larger group arrangements – nicely swinging charts that have a nice touch of modern, but lots of straightforward grooving too! Milt's the primary soloist, buoyed by an orchestra built around a rhythm section of Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and either Connie Cay or Philly Joe on drums – plus loads of great horn players like Clark Terry, Nat Adderley, Melba Liston, James Moody and Jimmy Heath among others. Titles include renditions of "Old Devil Moon", "'Round Midnight", "The Dream Is You", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Echoes", "If You Could See Me Now", "Star Eyes", "Namesake", "If I Should Lose You", and "Later Than You Think". CD features 2 bonus tracks! CD

✨✧ Ed BickertEd Bickert At Last ... LP
PM, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99
A sweet little set from Candian guitarist Ed Bickert – a record that's filled with amazing tones and colors, and which sparkles brightly from the very first note! The date's a trio outing – with Don Thompson on bass and Terry Clarke on drums – but Bickert's playing gives the whole thing a quality that's very different than any sort of traditional jazz guitar set like this – thanks to a style that shows a knowledge of 70s innovators like Pat Martino and John Abercrombie, but a sense of soul that keeps the whole thing nice and solid – in a very classic way. The set's got an airy feel, but is deeply grounded too – and at times, Bickert almost seems to echo the unique phrasing of his Canadian contemporary Sonny Greenwich. Titles include "Where Are You", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "It Might As Well Be Spring", and "Manha De Carnaval". LP, Vinyl record album

Barry MilesMiles Of Genius ... LP
Charlie Parker, 1961. Very Good+ ... $0.99
Early work by Barry Miles – a drummer who would go onto cut some very hip sides in the 70s, and who here was only 14 at the time of the session! The "young genius" approach need not be stated on the cover or the notes, as Miles' drumming is great no matter how old he is – and once you realize that he wrote all the tracks on the set, you'll be even more impressed at his writing skills! The group's a soulfully grooving one that plays a mixture of modern hardbop styles – and which features Duke Jordan on piano, Bob Miller on alto, John Grazel on trumpet, and George Clarke on tenor. The last three aren't well known – but they've all got an easy tone and a good swing, and Jordan's piano gives the whole set the same darkly grooving sound of his best work from the time. Titles include "Tuchentine", "Timetable", "Deez Weet", and "Terry". LP, Vinyl record album

A very special, very limited set – one that includes seven Chess Records 45s – all pressed up here as special versions for the package, so that every track's a winner!

Bernie SenenskyFree Spirit ... CD
PM, 1981. New Copy ... About March 1, 2016
One of the few records ever cut by the great keyboardist Bernie Senesky – a player who did some of his finest work ever for the ultra-hip PM Records label! This set's got Bernie on both acoustic and electric piano – and the artist handles the keys with this sensitivity that's really appreciated – an ability to move fast and really take flight, but never in a way that's too jamming, or show-offy at all – and still very much with the lyrical qualities that have always made him such a great surprise. The group's a quartet – with added percussion from Don Alias to complicate the rhythms nicely – alongside bass from David Piltch and drums from Terry Clarke. Titles include "Homeland", "Adam", "No More Tears", "Silver Trane", "Free Spirit", and "Reunion". CD
