Gary Burton, Sonny Rollins, Clark Terry3 In Jazz ... CD
RCA, 1963. Used ... $4.99
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". CD

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".

Mainstream, Early 70s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $2.99
Forget any biases you might have against Clark Terry – this album is a super-hip killer! The arrangements were handled by Joe Cain, a mad mad mad Latin arranger who brings a strange sense of rhythm to the session, and a unique way of inserting instrumental flourishes. There's some nice organ and firey piano, Jerome Richardson plays excellent bits on flute and sax, and Vince Bell and Eric Gale both play guitars. Jose Mangual and Willie Bobo kick it in with percussion, and Terry plays in a tight jaunty style, with occasional mad vocal moments. Titles include "El Blues Latino", "The Cat From Cadiz", "Rum & Mumbles", and "Never". LP, Vinyl record album

Clark TerryClark After Dark – The Ballad Artistry Of Clark Terry ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99 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".

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

A nice fifteen track double LP set that has flugelhorn and trumpet player Clark Terry and his quintet – co-lead by trombonist Bobby Brookmeyer tackling pieces by Herbie Hancock, Thelonius Monk, Count Basie and others, as well as several originals. Bill Crow, Dave Bailey, and Roger Kellaway round out the group – and tracks include "Dancing On The Grave", "The Simple Waltz", "Ode To A Flugelhorn", "Hawg Jawz", "A Gal In Calico", "Green Stamps", "Straight No Chaser", "The King", and "Blindman, Blindman".

Clark Terry & Chico O'FarrillSpanish Rice ... CD
Impulse, 1966. Used ... $18.99
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

A better album than you might think – although it certainly has a few silly moments! The tracks are short and kind of groovy – and there's a pretty good group on the record, one that includes Ronnie Matthews on piano, Victor Sproles on bass, Emmanuel Rahim on percussion, and Ernie Wilkins on tenor and soprano sax. Includes "Samba De Gumz", "Top N Bottom", "Never", "Bobby A", "The Hymn", and a version of "The Flinstones Theme"! CD

Clark Terry/Coleman HawkinsEddie Costa – Memorial Concert ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
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". CD

Pablo, 1980. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

A crowd-pleasing cooker from Clark Terry – a set recorded live before a very appreciative audience, and in a hipper 70s mode than you'd expect! The album's one of those great jazz efforts that was put together by Ed Bland – who seems to bring a nice sense of bounce, soul, and groove to the set – working with arrangements by Jimmy Heath, Phil Woods, Ernie Wilkins, and others who manage to keep Clark out of hoke territory, and into a very tightly swinging 70s big band groove. Other players include Jimmh Heath, Phil Woods, Richard Williams, Charles Davis, and Duke Jordan – and the tunes are lively and soulful throughout! Titles include "Randi", "Cold Tater Stomp", "Sheba", "Mumbles", "Una Mas", and "Nefertiti". CD

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

Candid (Germany), 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent little album that's also one of Clark Terry's hippest! The set was recorded as part of the monumental Candid catalog in the early 60s – and it's got an edgey quality that we don't normally hear in Terry's work. At some level, he's working in a mode picked up from his time with Ellington – painting in wide shades of tone and color – but at another level, he's also using some more modern small group modes, of the sort that Candid was perfect at recording! Other players on the session include Jimmy Knepper, Yusef Lateef, Julius Watkins, and Seldon Powell – all fluidly coming together with Terry's horn to create some tremendously evocative work! Titles include "Chat Qui Peche", "No Problem", "La Rive Gauche", "Blue Waltz", and "Brother Terry". CD

Mainstream/Lonehill (Spain), Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Genius work from one of the most solid groups in 60s jazz – the quintet co-led by trumpeter Clark Terry and trombonist Bob Brookmeyer – a legendary ensemble that drew on the best talents of both players, but grew into something greater! Brookmeyer's playing valve trombone throughout on the tunes – played in a fluid, trumpety way that matches perfectly with Terry's own phrasing – and which almost creates a sense of counterpoint on the head arrangements, yet which never falls into styles that are too academic or modern. There's a fluid easy grace here that's really surprising – with none of Terry's gutbuckety tricks or Brookmeyer's too experimental moments – and overall, the group have a solid, soulful quality that almost reminds us of the Art Farmer-Benny Golson Jazztet, or of some of Farmer's other key recordings of the 60s. Rhythm is by the trio of Roger Kellaway on piano, Bill Crow on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums – and the CD features 3 albums' worth of material on 2CDs – 28 titles that include "Tete A Tete", "Pretty Girl", "Blue China", "The King", "Dancing On The Grave", "Sometime Ago", "Hymn", "Green Stamps", "Hawg Jawz", "Simple Waltz", and "Milo's Other Samba".

Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... LP
fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
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. LP, Vinyl record album

Warner/High Moon, 1972. New Copy ... $23.99 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

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.

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 set of goodies from the young George Benson – one of the early albums from a time when George was really taking off as a solo artist – and setting the world on fire with his new approach to jazz guitar! Arrangements are from the mighty Horace Ott – who also handled a lot of soul sessions in the 60s, and provides George with a strong array of settings in which to groove – maybe a wider mode than on some of his CTI sessions from the same period. George provides an early vocal on one track – his funky remake of "That Lucky Old Sun" – and all other cuts are instrumental, recorded with help from Idris Muhammad (as Leo Morris) on drums, Clark Terry on trumpet, Garnett Brown on trombone, and Paul Griffin on piano. Titles include "Doobie Doobie Blues", "Carnival Joys", "Song For My Father", and "People Get Ready". CD

Joe CainLatin Explosion (aka Latin Au Go Go) ... LP
Time, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the few albums ever issued as a leader by the great Joe Cain – a wonderful Latin arranger with a really mad ear for a groove! Cain's approach is often quite choppy in the rhythms – short, hard, and very very sharp – then topped with sweeter, jazzier lines – played on this set by Clark Terry on trumpet, Jerome Richardson on tenor and flute, and Frank Anderson on piano and some especially nice organ lines! Percussion is super-heavy throughout – played by Jose Mangual, Chocolate, and Marcelino Valdes with a vibe that's just right for the rhythms – and additional support is from Cachao on bass and Herbie Lovelle on drums. The grooves are incredible – quite different than anything else on Mainstream Records at the time, and even different than most of the New York scene – and titles include the amazing "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mambo (parts 1 & 2) (also known elsewhere as "Mambo Au Go Go") – a cut that sounds like some sort of crazy avant garde percussion banging, all made to keep in time to a mambo beat, with jazzy organ solos over the top.

Columbia, 1959. Used ... $4.99
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". Plus, the CD features a huuuuge amount of bonus tracks – including other tunes from the movie, outtakes, and even the original single version of the theme! 26 cuts in all! CD

EmArcy, 1959. Used ... $5.99
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".

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".

A magnificent set from the team of Art Farmer and Jim Hall – one of those rare pairings in jazz that somehow comes off sounding even way better than the sum of its parts – and that's saying a lot, given that the parts here are already pretty darn great! Farmer's flugelhorn and Hall's guitar create these wonderful shapes in sound – softly coming together with a vibe that's very modern, yet also soulful – gently swinging while still experimenting – with a combination that's completely wonderful! Think of Bob Brookmeyer and Clark Terry, or Bill Evans and Jim Hall – and you'll be somewhere in the territory of these magically unique sounds – augmented with some gentle rhythm work by Steve Swallow on bass and Walter Perkins on drums. Titles include "By Myself", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Sometime Ago", and "My Kinda Love". CD features a bonus track too! CD

He's backed by a nice little combo that includes friends and songwriting partners like Horace Parlan, Clark Terry, and Johnny Griffin – and the set includes loads of great numbers like "Dem Jive New York People", "Keep An Ugly Woman", "Be Bop Santa Claus", and "Le Moody Mood Pour Amour". The whole thing's hung together with some great patter, and recorded in a way that shows the warm spirit of all the more famous folks who kept Babs going along during his glory years! CD

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.

Earl HinesOnce Upon A Time ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $1.99
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

✨✧ Eddie JeffersonLetter From Home (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... $10.99
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". CD also features 2 bonus alternate takes of "Keep Walkin" and "Billie's Bounce". CD

Mundell LoweBlues For A Stripper (aka Satan In High Heels) ... LP
Charlie Parker/Modern Harmonic, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
Great music from jazz guitarist Mundell Lowe – a set that was originally written as the soundtrack for an early 60s sexploitation film, Satin In High Heels – but which works equally well as a jazz album on its own! Lowe's in a slightly different setting than on some of his earlier records – working with larger arrangements that include a rich array of sounds and tunes from Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, Clark Terry and Joe Newman on trumpets, Al Cohn and Oliver Nelson on tenor, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, and Phil Woods on alto sax – an all-star lineup who make the music sound way better than you might expect! Lowe's guitar gets a lot of center space in the sound – providing the right sort of slinky, crime jazz-styled elements – and titles include "Coffee Coffee", "Lake In the Woods", "Pattern Of Evil", "Blues For A Stripper", and "East Side Drive In". Nice jazzy sound, and a very sexy theme! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dave PikeBossa Nova Carnival (Japanese pressing) ... CD
New Jazz (Japan), 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the first true moments of genius on record from the legendary vibist Dave Pike – a sublime set of bossa nova numbers, all written by the bossa pianist Joao Donato! Joao doesn't actually play on the record, but his compositions here are enough – as they help Pike find a new sense of space and pulse in his music – rhythms that really unlock his vibes towards their grooviest ends for the first time ever on record. Most numbers are heavily modal – a great mix with the bossa setting – and the album also features key work from Clark Terry on flugelhorn, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Chris White on bass – whose loping lines really help shape the overall sound of the record. Also features lots of nice percussion – and titles include "Ginha", "Samba Lero", "Sono", "Carnival Samba", "Sausalito", and "Melvalita". CD
Also available Bossa Nova Carnival/Limbo Carnival ... CD 10.99

✨✧ Jim HallJazz Impressions Of Japan ... LP
A&M (Japan), 1976. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sharp sounds from guitarist Jim Hall – a record that's filled with all the cool, complicated lines the musician could muster on his instrument – yet a record that also manages to swing a bit too! The sound here is a great evolution from the sound of Hall's music in the 50s – even more modern at most moments, with unique phrasing that shows just how much Jim continued to grow over the decades – delivered at a level that's very fresh, and without a debt to any other guitarist on the planet! Part of the album's unique feel comes from the large amount of original Hall compositions – interpreted by Jim with a trio that also features Don Thompson on piano and bass and Terry Clarke on drums – on titles that include "Kyoto Bells", "Echo", "Without Words", "Light", "Something For Now", and "Two Special People".
