Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury/Polygram (Japan), 1964. Used ... $18.99
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

Clark TerryMumbles ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
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 on guitar, Willie Bobo on percussion, Grady Tate on drums, and Jerome Richardson on reeds – 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

Clark Terry & Bob BrookmeyerGingerbread Men ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... About March 20, 2018
The team of Clark Terry & Bob Brookmeyer shouldn't work so well together – but although Terry's always been an optimist, and Brookmeyer's had a history as a modernist, the pair cut some great records together! This set's one of the best of a short run the Terry/Brookmeyer group cut for Mainstream in the mid 60s – a quintet session with Hank Jones on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums – all players creative enough to match the playful spirit of the leaders, muting their rhythms one minute, and grooving them up the next! The mix of Terry's flugelhorn and Brookmeyer's trombone is especially great – a breathy approach to the horn parts that still swings hard, but with a fluid grace that's more pulsating than punctuating. Titles include a great version of Gary McFarland's "Milo's Other Samba", Jimmy Heath's "Gingerbread Boy", and the titles "Haig & Haig", "My Gal", "Naptown", and "Morning Mist". CD

Clark Terry/Bob BrookmeyerPower Of Positive Swinging ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful work from one of Clark Terry's best periods – and the kind of stripped-down swinging 60s set that really lets 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 on piano, Bill Crow on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums – a trio that swings in a smooth, sophisticated way that really matches the double brass sound in the frontline – lifting things to that special groove that Terry and Brookmeyer crafted together! 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".

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".

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

MPS (Germany), 1977. New Copy ... 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".

Terry AllenLubbock (On Everything) (deluxe edition) ... CD
Fate/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 18.98
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

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. Other titles include "Mongo Mongo Baby", "Papa Bajo", "Que Paso", "Tanga Pa Katanga", and "Chunga A Go Go". LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic stuff, and proof that Rosemary Clooney was always one heck of a great singer – with strengths in jazz that you didn't always hear in her pop work! 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".

Duke Ellington's SpacemenCosmic Scene (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Mosaic, 1958. Used ... $14.99
A lost Duke Ellington gem from the late 50s – a session that has a decidedly different look than some of his other records of the time! We don't know if the Duke was into Sun Ra – but it almost seems like he was copping his thunder with this title and band name – a fair bit more flashy than the usual presentation for the Ellington group! The record's not nearly as trippy as you'd expect – but it's still a prime set of Ellingtonia from those key late 50s years – material played by a smaller group of "Spacemen" than Duke's fuller orchestra – with a bit more room for small group interaction, almost in a Verve mode. Players include Jimmy Hamilton on clarinet, Clark Terry on trumpet, Paul Gonzalves on tenor, Quentin Jackson on trombone, and Jimmy Woode on bass – and titles include "Avalon", "Midnight Sun", "Spacemen", "Bass-ment", "Early Autumn", and "Jones". CD also features 2 bonus alternate takes of "Body & Soul" and "Jones". CD

Wardell GrayWardell Gray Memorial Vol 2 ... LP

One of the best-ever documents of the young genius of tenorist Wardell Gray – exactly the kind of music that shows why he was one of the biggest and best of the bop saxophonists – before he was taken away from us all too soon! 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! Players include Sonny Criss on alto, Art Farmer and Clark Terry on trumpet, Dexter Gordon on tenor, and Hampton Hawes on piano – and titles include "Move", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Lover", "Farmer's Market", "April Skies", "Jackie", and "Sweet & Lovely".

A tribute to Billie Holiday – with Johnny Griffin's tenor fronting some larger backing on strings and brass – but hipper than most efforts of this type, thanks to some great arrangements by Melba Liston and Norman Simmons! 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. Other players include Clark Terry on trumpet, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Ron Carter on bass – and titles include "God Bless The Child", "Gloomy Sunday", "Travelin' Light", "Left Alone", and "Detour Ahead".

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".

Illinois JacquetNice Jazz 1978 ... CD
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

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

Thelonious MonkAll Monk – The Riverside Albums (16CD set) ... CD
Concord (Italy), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 16CDs ... $54.99
A full document of the genius of Thelonious Monk on Riverside Records – a late 50s stretch when the composer really came into his own – and delivered even more on the promise of his music than anyone would have expected just a few short years before! By the time of these albums, Monk was already a composer and pianist of some note – with some crucial recordings for Blue Note and Prestige under his belt. Yet at Riverside, he really got the chance to open up in so many different ways – move past the trio material that dominated his earlier years, and try out new modes that really exploded the sound of jazz for the modern generation – helping to bridge paths forward and back, introduce new voices to Monk's sonic spectrum, and lay the groundwork for creativity in the final years of his life. Some tracks are trio, a few are solo, but there's also really important work with horns – including tenor material by John Coltrane, Coleman Hawkins, Johnny Griffin, and Sonny Rollins – as well as the formation of Monk's quartet with Charlie Rouse, which would dominate his Columbia Records material of the 60s. Even the drummers alone are great – a list that includes Art Taylor, Roy Haynes, Max Roach, Kenny Clarke, and Art Blakey – and the set also features some trumpet work by Clark Terry at his hippest, plus Joe Gordon and Thad Jones. All albums come with original artwork, in small little LP-styled covers – and many feature bonus tracks too. Albums include Thelonious Monk Plays Duke Ellington, Unique Thelonious Monk, Brilliant Corners, Thelonious Himself, Monk's Music, Thelonious Monk With John Coltrane, Mulligan Meets Monk, Thelonious In Action, Misterioso, At Town Hall, 5 By Monk By 5, Alone In San Francisco, At The Blackhawk, Monk In France, Thelonious Monk In Italy, and San Francisco Holiday.

Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A sweet soulful set from drummer Grasella Oliphant – one of two legendary albums cut for Atlantic Records in the 60s – and the one with a very heavy-hitting lineup! The vibe here is somewhere between Blue Note Hammond dates and soul jazz on Prestige Records in the mid 60s – as Grasella leads a totally great group with John Patton on Hammond, Grant Green on guitar, and Harold Ousley on tenor – making a really great appearance here, and having us wish he did more dates like this! Clark Terry's also on the set to punch things up on trumpet and flugelhorn – and titles include a killer break version of "Get Out Of My Life Woman", with some very tasty drums – plus "Cantaloupe Woman, "The Yodel", "The Latter Days", "Rapid Shave", and "Soul Woman".

Cecil PayneStop & Listen To Cecil Payne (The Connection/Cecil Payne Plays Charlie Parker) ... CD
Charlie Parker/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1961/1962. Used ... $14.99
A great reissue that combines Cecil Payne's 2 albums for Charlie Parker Records from the early 60s! The Connection features Cecil's take on the play – not the more famous Freddie Redd tunes written for the play when Redd and Jackie McLean were starring in it, but a new score written by Payne and Kenny Drew. The music has a similar free bop approach to Redd's work – but the group on this set's a sextet, and the overall sound is perhaps a bit more soul-oriented and less frenetically edgey as Redd's score. Players include Clark Terry, Bennie Green, Ron Carter, Duke Jordan, and Charlie Persip – on titles that include "Stop & Listen", "Born Again", "Dear People", "Kenny's One", and "Sister Carol". The second set of tracks on the set are by the same group – minus Bennie Green – and feature Payne performing a series of Charlie Parker standards – including "Bongo Bop", "Cool Blues", "Shawnuff", and "The Hymn" – plus one great original, "Communion". Given the paucity of work by Payne as a leader, this CD really shows a great and under-documented side of his career! CD

Jimmy RaneyTwo Jims & Zoot ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful work from guitarist Jimmy Raney – easily one of his standout sets of the 60s, and a record that features some great second guitar from Jim Hall! The pairing of guitars makes for a really unique sort of sound – one that's more languidly flowing than some of Raney's previous work, in ways that opens up with some tremendous tones and colors throughout – almost a guitar-based version of the sort of groove that Clark Terry and Bob Brookmeyer got with their horns while recording for Mainstream at the time. The presence of Zoot Sims on tenor is also a great factor of the record – and there's almost a gentle bossa nova influence going on here, but one that's touched with more modern elements too – in ways that really transform the sound of Sims' horn. Other players in the group include Steve Swallow on bass and Osie Johnson on drums – and titles include"A Primera Vez", "Presente De Natal", "Este Seu Olhar", "Betaminus", "Move It", "All Across The City", and "Coisa Mais Linda".

PTR (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A set that's maybe more funk than country – but we mean that in the best possible way! The grooves here are hard and heavy – at a level that hardly needs a love of Nashville for admission – as most of the best elements in the grooves are pulled from funk and soul – and include heavy drums, riffing guitar, and super-strong basslines – all played by blue-eyed groups who might have hit some twang in their other material, but who are right on the money here! Some numbers get a bit trippy while sounding funky – and it might be best to think of the package as more in the rock funk mode overall. Titles include "Flower Child" by Bo Jack, "Lorraine" by Terry Clark, "Undying Love" by Bust, "Lucille" by Hope Inc, "All Of My Life" by Jack Kane, "Fast David & The Wolfpack" by The Embers, "Polk Salad Annie" by Manson Manuel Express, "Stone Born Country Boy" by Big Jim Cartwright, "Mississippi Delta" by Steve Kathy & The Sha-onas, and "Mountain Chops" by Cal Collins Trio.

Blue Moon (Spain), 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard to have any feet in the gutter when you sound this great – as the album's a killer batch of hardbop, led by drummer Dave Bailey during his classic short run on Columbia! The lineup here is amazing – a rock-solid sextet with Clark Terry on trumpet, Junior Cook on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Horace Parlan on piano, and Peck Morrison on bass – all hitting with an intensity which rivals the best on Blue Note or Prestige – but which is arguably even better, given that most of the tracks on the set really stretch out! Side two features an extended 20 minute take on "Sandu" – and side one features "One Foot In The Gutter" and "Well You Needn't" – both over 10 minutes long! CD

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".

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".

Sackville, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the last work ever recorded by trombonist Frank Rosolino – really wonderful laidback live material that has Frank blowing in an open, spacious sort of way! The album's a great chance to hear the creativity and soul of Rosolino's trombone at its best – and has a very different feel than most of his early work – which, while great, always had a tighter west coast approach. The group here is a Canadian one – no surprise, as the material was recorded in Toronto – and features great guitar from Ed Bickert, plus Don Thomson on bass, and Terry Clarke on drums. Titles include the group's long, melodic treatment of Monk's "Round Midnight", and other titles including "Sweet And Lovely", "Who Can I Turn To", and "I Thought About You".
