Les BrownComplete Song Books (Jazz Song Book/Swing Song Book) ... CD
Coral/Lonehill (Spain), 1959. Used ... $8.99
2 great little albums from Les Brown – a real return to greatness at the end of the 50s! Jazz Song Book is a sublime set that's built strongly around solo contributions from players that include Buddy DeFranco, Terry Gibbs, Frank Rosolino, Zoot Sims, Don Fagerquist, and Ronnie Lang – all players who are quite comfortable in a large group setting, but really know how to make the most of their solo space when it comes around! Brown put the album together in a way that shifts the focus between soloists from track to track – and the different voicings really give each number a great sense of mood, even when the tunes themselves are familiar ones. Arrangements are by Bill Holman, and titles include "Pizza Boy", "The Claw", "Love Is Here To Stay", "Chelsea Bridge", "Willow Weep For Me", "King Phillip Stomp", and "Let's Get Away From It All". Swing Song Book offers up some great modern interpretations of jazz numbers from an earlier age – arranged tightly by Billy May, for a set of players that includes Dick Collins, Abe Most, Stumpy Brown, Billy Usselton, and Howard Roberts. The sound is strongly ensemble-based – with beautiful horn parts that are filled with deep tones, yet still manage to swing – a bit like Stan Kenton before he'd gone too modern at the start of the 50s. Titles include "Lean Baby", "Pick Yourself Up", "Early Autumn", "Moten Swing", "Take The A Train", and "I Want To Be Happy". CD
(Note: There seem to be a few very short moments in which the sound is slightly distored – but these are minor, possibly from the master tapes.)

Paul DesmondPaul Desmond Quintet/Quartet (Desmond/Paul Desmond Quartet Featuring Don Elliott) ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, Early 50s. Used ... $5.99
A key look at the early career of alto genius Paul Desmond – work recorded in the 50s away from the company of Dave Brubeck – a real rarity for the time! The first 8 tracks on the set are from the unique Desmond album – a session that features 4 tracks with Paul in a quintet with Dick Collins on trumpet and Dave Van Kriedt on tenor sax – working without a piano, and in a fluid-grooving style that recalls a lot of the Gerry Mulligan style of the time. The other 4 tracks from the set are even more unique – and have Desmond blowing dreamily over a "with voices" chorus – done with the Bill Bates singers in a style that's warmer than similar work by Charlie Parker, and which really points the way towards some of the Desmond solo genius of the 60s. The remaining 8 tracks on the set are from the Paul Desmond Quartet With Don Elliott – and a gem of a set that sounds quite different than even the other two on the set! The group's a quartet, playing again with no piano – and features Don Elliott on trumpet, Norman Bates (Joe from the Brubeck group) on bass, and Joe Chevrolet (aka Joe Doge, also from Brubeck) on drums – all swinging in an airy mode that's kind of a cross between Desmond's work with the Brubeck group, and some of Gerry Mulligan's early 50s recordings. Titles include "A Watchman's Carroll", "Jazzabelle", "Look For The Silver Lining", "Sacre Blues", and "Line For Lyons". CD

Dizzy GillespieSomething Old/Something New ... CD
Verve/Philips, 1963. Used ... $4.99
Beautiful work from one of Dizzy's greatest periods – and an album not to pass up! The set features Diz playing 5 old bop tunes, and 4 new tracks from the pen of the great Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "This Lovely Afternoon", "Good Bait", "Dizzy Atmosphere" and the non-LP cut "Early Mornin' Blues". CD

Sun RaSun Ra & The Year 2000 Myth Science Arkestra Live At The Hackney Empire ... CD
Leo (UK), 1990. Used 2CD ... $19.99
Sun Ra never lived long enough to see the new millenium – but he's working here a decade before with a unique Year 2000 Myth Science Arkestra, heard on a famous London performance presented in its entirety! The lineup here is a bit different than the usual Arkestra – and players include Jothan Collins on trumpet, Tyrone Hill on trombone, Noel Scott on alto sax, Charles Davis on baritone sax, John Gilmore on tenor, India Cooke on violin, Talvin Singh on tabla, and Elson Nascimento on percussion – as well as June Tyson on vocals and Sun Ra on a range of keyboards. The performance has an especially bold, proud feel – no doubt because of the high profile of the concert at the time, done when Ra's work was being discovered and embraced by a whole new generation of critics and listeners in the UK. 2CD set features 17 tracks in all – including "Astro Black", "Planet Earth Day", "Yeah Man", "Skimming & Loping", "Sunset On The Nile", "Frisco Fog", "East Of The Sun", "String Singhs/Discipline 27-11/I'll Wait For You", "Face The Music", "Blue Lou", and "Love In Outer Space".

Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersGeorge Gershwin's Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1956. Used 2CD ... $4.99
One of our favorite recordings ever of George Gershwin's Porgy & Bess – done by Bethlehem Records in the mid 50s, and featuring nearly every one of the label's great talents at the time! The choice of the lead characters is a bit odd – as Mel Torme plays Porgy and Francis Faye plays Bess – but both singers are actually pretty darn great for the set, and really bring a lot out of the tunes. Plus, the other artists on the set really keep things interesting – as the collection features vocal performances by Johnny Hartman, Frank Rosolino, Betty Roche, Bob Dorough, and Sallie Blair. Plus, the whole thing's presented as Gershwin wrote it – complete with narration by Al Jazzbo Collins, and a number of strong instrumental passages. Music is performed by groups led by Russ Garcia, Duke Ellington, Pat Moran, and Stan Levy – and players are an array of the best of both the New York and LA scenes at the time! Plus, this great reissue version features a full 29 minute bonus track – the "Porgy & Bess Suite", which is an extended instrumental performed by Russ Garcia. Also comes with a really great 48 page booklet too! CD
(Tray card and booklet have cutout holes.)

✨✧ Gene O'QuinBoogie Woogie Fever ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A country guitar firebrand in the tradition of Speedy West, Joe Maphis, and the Collins Brothers, with an unmistakable Hank Williams-inspired croon! In the early 50s Gene was a crucial rung on the ladder that lead to rock and roll, and this Bear Family collection of 30 of his tunes is the first of his previously (almost) lost recordings to make it to CD! Tracks include the great "Boogie Woogie Fever", "The Pinball Millionaire", "You Name It (She's Got It)", "Texas Boogie", "I Specialize In Love", "No Parking Here", "I'll Stop Loving You", "It's No Wonder", "Tired", "You Played Around With My Heart", "You're Smiling At Another", "I Searched The Crowd", and lots more. Also included is a nice and thick booklet – a nice historical portrait to connect with the records! CD

✨✧ ParliamentMothership Connection ... CD
Casablanca, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Here's where it all happens – the huge culmination of all the years of heavy funk and psychedelic soul created by George Clinton and the P-Funk empire – fused into an amazingly tight groove that helped win over much bigger audiences than ever before! The album title and cover are very fitting – as George Clinton launches the mothership, forges his classic space-funk image, and blows the P-Funk empire into an arena-filling mega-star act – all with grooves that are still some of the tightest, sharpest funk you'll ever hear – all these many decades later. The instrumentation is razor-sharp – played by giants like Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Bootsy Collins, and Bernie Worrell – and the lyrics still have all the edginess and naughtiness of the earlier years – tied together wonderfully to make a very unified album, and one that's full of classics too! Titles include "Mothership Connection (Star Child)", "Night Of The Thumpasorus Peoples", "P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)", "Handcuffs", "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)", and "Unfunky Ufo".

✨✧ VariousAshford & Simpson Songbook ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ashford & Simpson recorded plenty of great work on their own, but they were also a tremendous pair of songwriters – and had a way of penning can't-miss work that sounded great in just about anyone's hands! This collection is great testament to that fact – as it starts with gems the duo first wrote back in their early Motown days, then quickly moves up to their late 70s fame, and the way they had a major impact on the dancefloor. The tracks here are often quite familiar, but the actual recordings are sometimes obscure – lesser-known takes on some of Ashford & Simpson's best numbers, laid out back to back as proof of their genius talent for a groovy soul tune. Titles include "Top Of The Stairs" by Collins & Collins, "Keep It Coming" by Tata Vega, "Rough Times" by Angela Bofill, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, "Bourgie Bourgie" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Have You Ever Tried It" by The Main Ingredient, "I Wouldn't Change The Man He Is" by Blinky, "It's In There" by Jennifer Holiday, "Clouds" by Chaka Khan, "Over & Over" by Sylvester, "Hit & Run Lover" by The Dynamic Superiors, "The Boss (ext club)" by Diana Ross, "Is It Still Good To Ya" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Keep It Coming" by Tata Vega, and "Keep Away Girls" by Stephanie Mills.

✨✧ VariousOn The Modern Side ... CD
Goldmine (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite compilations ever! This is a stunning set of rare 70's soul cuts with a slightly modern feel (but not too modern). Most of these tracks were rare singles by groups and artists who recorded for the sort of labels that don't really reissue their stuff regularly – labels like Casablanca, 20th Century, and Mercury. The selection's great, and the tracks include "I Don't Do This" by Sidney Joe Qualls, "Too Much Lovemakin" by Gloria Scott, "If You Want A Love Affair" by Jesse James", "He Sent Me You" by Oscar Perry, "Top Of The Stairs" by Collins & Collins, "Once I've Been There" by Norman Connors, and more by Benny Troy, Joe Anderson, Skip Mahoney, Eddie Holman, and Brothers Guiding Light. Fantastic stuff, and one that we just can't stop listening to! CD
