Gary Burton, Sonny Rollins, Clark Terry3 In Jazz ... CD
RCA, 1963. Used ... $6.99
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

Dizzy Gillespie/Freddie Hubbard/Clark TerryTrumpet Summit Meets Oscar Peterson ... LP
Pablo, 1980. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
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". 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".

Clark TerryAngyumaluma Bongliddleany Nannyany Awhan Yi! ... LP
Mainstream, Early 70s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
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 TerryColor Changes ... LP
Candid, 1960. Very Good ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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 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

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

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

✨✧ Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... CD
Mercury/Verve, 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". CD

MPS (Germany), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Universal/EmArcy, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunner – and one of Clark Terry's finest moments ever! The record has a rawness and groove that you'd hardly expect from his later albums – no surprise, though, considering that it was cut during that really hip time at Emarcy, when the label was working in a mode that was darker and more challenging than many of the smaller labels at the time. Credit is also due to arranger Quincy Jones – who pulls together a group that includes Horace Silver, Jimmy Cleveland, Cecil Payne, and Art Blakey, all into a fiercely grooving sound that recalls some of his most adventurous work of the 50s. The album kicks off with the stunning "Swahili", a tune that will instantly make you happy you bought the record – and other tracks include "Coop", "Chuckles", "Tuma", "Kitten", and "The Countess".

Vanguard/Universe (Italy), 1977. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's a right one, as Terry was one of the world's biggest-selling jazz acts at the time – playing a variety of settings during the 70s, and making a lot more penny than some of his contemporaries. Fortunately, that fame didn't mean that he sold out his talent – because he still sounds quite strong here, working with a group that includes Vic Sproles, Ronnie Mathews, and Ernie Wilkins – plus some guest work by Roland Prince and Walter Bishop Jr. Tracks are swinging and sometimes playful – with a lot more strident soul than you might expect, given the cover. Titles include "Zip Co-Ed", "Globetrotter", "Autumn Leaves", and a reprise of the old Dave Bailey-recorded tune "One Foot In The Gutter". CD

✨✧ Clark TerryIt's What's Happenin' – The Varitone Sound Of Clark Terry ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very groovy record – one of the most unique from trumpeter Clark Terry! At the end of the 60s, many soul jazz sax players – like Eddie Harris and Lou Donaldson – turned towards the new electric technology of the Varitone company in an attempt to keep up with the electric guitar-driven pop music that was beating them out in record sales. While that trend worked large for the sax players, Clark Terry's one of the few trumpeters we can think of who gave the Varitone a try – and surprisingly, it was a great way to capture the playful style that Terry had been developing during the mid 60s. The album's nothing fancy, but the Varitone gives Terry a nice tone that works well with the easy trio backing led by pianist Don Friedman, and featuring Dave Bailey on drums and George Duvivier on bass. The album includes an extended jazzy reading of Grofe's "Grand Canyon Suite", plus "Electric Mumbles", "Take Me Back To Elkhart", and "Tee Pee Time". CD

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".

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

Dave BaileyComplete 1 & 2 Feet In The Gutter Sessions (Getting Into Something/One Foot In The Gutter/Two Feet In The Gutter) ... CD
Columbia/Lonehill (Spain), 1960/1961. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
Some of the most soulful jazz ever recorded for Columbia Records – 3 albums worth of material from the combo of drummer Dave Bailey! Bailey's probably best known for his work in the Gerry Mulligan group, but for a brief time at the start of the 60s he stepped out as a leader – working with a focus and intensity that easily matched the best hard boppers on Blue Note or Prestige! These 3 records for Columbia are all amazing sets that we'd rank with some of our favorite jazz from the time – razor-sharp records that have a really earthy finish, and which bring out some of the best hardbop work on record from horn soloists Curtis Fuller, Clark Terry, Junior Cook, Charlie Rouse, and Bill Hardman – all of whom really catch fire under Bailey's guidance! But even above the great horn work on the albums, we really have to note the piano – as Horace Parlan plays on 2 of the albums, easily matching his Blue Note classics, and Billy Gardner follows up on the last set – working with a low low bottom that we love from his sides with Lou Donaldson. Bassists are Peck Morrison and Ben Tucker – and titles include "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", "Blues For JP", "One Foot In The Gutter", "Sandu", "Two Feet In The Gutter", "Lady Iris B", "Coffee Walk", and "Brownie Speaks". And if 3 albums' worth of material isn't enough, the CD also features 3 more tunes from Bailey's rare Jazztime session with Grant Green and Frank Hayes – "Reaching Out", "Our Miss Brooks", and "One For Elena". 16 tracks in all – most of them quite long!

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

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.

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

The record's a good change from some of Johnny's more full-on bop sessions from the same time – and it's nice to hear that his tenor works equally well on mellow tracks and ballads, stretching out with a deep edge and a wonderful tone.

✨✧ Chico HamiltonEl Chico/Further Adventures Of El Chico ... CD
Impulse, 1966. Used ... $9.99
Amazing sounds throughout – 2 killers from Chico Hamilton! El Chico is light years ahead of the staid sounds that Chico Hamilton was cutting in the 50s! Hamilton's one of those players who has an amazing range to his music – almost all of it really incredible, as Chico always shifts things up over time – continually trying new things, and new modes of expression – even though, given his popularity, he could have just kept recording the same things year after year. This album is true testament to that propensity for growth in Hamilton's music – a wonderfully unbridled set that's filled with unusual rhythms, odd instrumentation, and even some of the first touches of psychedelic jazz to appear in the 60s! Players include Sadao Watanabe on alto and flute, Gabor Szabo on guitar, Jimmy Cheatham on trombone, and Willie Bobo and Victor Pantoja on percussion – all working together in a really wonderful range of modes from track to track – always groovy, but also pretty far-reaching and exploratory too! Titles include "El Moors", "Helena", "Strange", "Marcheta", "El Chico", and "Conquistadores". Further Adventures is 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". CD

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". CD

Earl HinesOnce Upon A Time ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
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

Lambert, Hendricks & BavanLive At Newport '63 ... CD
RCA/BMG, 1963. Used ... $4.99
The Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross tradition lives on – in a smoking live set that features Indian singer Yolanda Bavan joining the group in place of recently-departed Ross! Bavan's ability to groove and improvise is every bit as great as that of Annie Ross – and she fits in nicely next to the warm lyrics of John Hendricks, and the sweetly crackling bop vocals of Dave Lambert. Plus, the live setting seems to open the whole group up even more – as they're working with a great combo that features Coleman Hawkins and Clark Terry sitting in with the Gildo Mahones trio that includes George Tucker on bass and Jimmie Smith on drums. The tunes are all very soulful and swinging – and the album easily sits with the best Columbia work by the older version of the group! Titles include "Watermelon Man", "Sack o Woe", "Deedle-Lee Deedle-Lum", and "Walkin", taken in a nice long stretch1 CD

✨✧ Michel LegrandMichel Legrand Big Band Plays Richard Rodgers ... LP
Philips, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A pretty wonderful album by Michel Legrand – way better than you'd guess from the title! Sure, the tunes are mostly numbers by Richard Rodgers, but Legrand handles them here with the best of his soundtrack skills – really opening them up with some amazingly deft arrangements, and working with a stellar set of American jazz players to give the tunes a sound that's as jazzy as possible – and swinging them with the inherent lyricism that always makes us love his music! Players are a great lineup – with Clark Terry and Ernie Royal on trumpets, Urbie Green and Bob Brookmeyer on trombones, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Jerry Dodgion and Phil Woods on alto, Julious Watkins on French horn, Gary Burton on vibes, and Tommy Flanagan and Hank Jones on piano. Titles include "This Can't Be Love", "Falling In Love With Love", "Bali Hai", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "There's A Small Hotel", and "The Lady Is A Tramp". LP, Vinyl record album

Mundell LoweBlues For A Stripper (aka Satan In High Heels) ... CD
Charlie Parker/Modern Harmonic, 1961. New Copy ... On May 12, 2017
Mundell Lowe's wonderful tawdry and groovy jazz soundtrack to the obscure film Satan In High Heels! The film has kind of a Russ Meyer Supervixens bent to it (although it arrived a number of years before Russ's heyday), and which deals with the dark side of sexuality! Mundell Lowe's score is mostly jazzy, with lots of orchestrations by players like Al Cohn, Phil Woods, Clark Terry, and Joe Newman – and lots of solo guitar parts by Mundell himself. Originally released as a straight up soundtrack to the sleazy early 60s flick, it was later released as a stand-alone Mundell Lowe album, Blues For A Stripper. 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! CD

Gerry MulliganGerry Mulligan 63 – The Concert Jazz Band ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good ... $1.99
The sound of Gerry Mulligan in the early 60s – and one of the best records by his larger than usual Concert Jazz Band! Given Gerry's piano-less experiments of the 50s, it's surprising to actually have him as the pianist on this session – hitting the keys with a nice light touch, so that the larger horn section can take over most of the tunes – a beautifully-arranged ensemble who have a feel that's lighter than some of the groups of the 50s – such as the Kenton ensemble – yet one that's equally modern at times! The lineup is wonderful – with Clark Terry and Nick Travis on trumpets, Willie Dennis and Bob Brookmeyer on trombones, and Gene Quill, Gene Allen, and Eddie Caine on saxes – plus guitar from Jim Hall, bass from Bill Crow, and drums from Gus Johnson. Titles include "Big City Life", "Bridgehampton South", "My Kind Of Love", "Pretty Gypsy", "Bridgehampton Strut", and "Big City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Jim HallJazz Impressions Of Japan ... LP
A&M (Japan), 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $44.99
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".

✨✧ Jim HallLive In Tokyo ... CD
King (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare 70s set from guitarist Jim Hall – one that's got a cover that recalls Blue Note artwork used for Kenny Burrell, and recorded with a strong sound to match! The record's got maybe a bit more bite than some of Jim's airier sessions from the 70s – a strong power with Hall in the lead not just as a sound-shaper, but also as a more pronounced force in the trio – with some surprisingly edgey moments that really make the album stand out from the pack! There's some wonderfully deft passages here that really remind us how great Hall can be in the right setting – and the setting here features Don Thompson on bass and Terry Clarke on drums – on titles that include "Twister", "St Thomas", "Concierto De Aranjuez", "Secret Love", and "Chelsea Bridge".
