Shelly ManneShelly Manne & His Men Vol 2 (10 inch pressing) ... LP
Contemporary, 1954. Very Good- ... $19.99
One of Shelly Manne's best early sides – a session that features arrangements and tunes by some of the best of the west coast scene – Jimmy Giuffree, Bob Cooper, Shorty Rogers, Jack Montrose, and Marty Paich – played by a group that includes Paich, Manne, Russ Freeman, Shorty Rogers, Don Fagerquist, and Bob Enevoldsen. The tunes have that wonderful tightness of Manne's best 50s work – modern, but not stuffy, cool, but still swinging very very nicely! Titles include "Etude De Concert", "Shapes Motion Colors", "Dimension In Thirds", and "Alternation". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)

Terry CallierI Just Can't Help Myself ... LP
Cadet, 1973. Good+ ... $38.99
One of the best albums that Terry Callier ever recorded – and a masterpiece of the baroque soul crossover style that was going down at the Chess/Cadet label at the time! Terry's own folksy singing and playing would be more than enough to make this record great – but it's given an amazing edge by Richard Evans and Charles Stepney, who create these floating pillows of sound and washes of jazzy colors that fit Terry's moods perfectly, and really expand the emotional intensity of the songs. At the time of this release, the Chess empire was falling apart – but the forces that be put a great last push into the record, and Terry's backed by superb work from Chicago studio giants like Phil Upchurch, Don Myrick, Art Hoyle, Bobby Christian, Cleveland Eaton, Louis Satterfield, and Evans and Stepney themselves! Every track is a wonder, and titles include "Alley-Wind Song" , "Can't Catch the Trane", "Bowlin' Green", and "Until Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear, with a fully split top seam and an ink stamp on the back.)

✨✧ Gil Fuller with James MoodyNight Flight ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
A newly majestic setting for James Moody in the 60s – thanks to the mighty arranging talents of Gil Fuller! The album's similar to one that Fuller did with Dizzy Gillespie at the same time – a blend of large ensemble backings and soulful work by the solo star – which in this case is James Moody on alto, tenor, and flute! Moody's work here is kind of an extension of his 60s recordings with Tom McIntosh – an amazing array of colors, tones, and emotions that would never have been heard in his music a decade or two before – played with sophistication that's simply stunning, and a sense of swing and soul that makes the whole thing move nicely. The ensemble has a great rhythm section that features Mike Wofford on piano, Chuck Berghofer on bass, and Chuck Flores on drums – plus percussion from Francisco Aquabella – and titles include "Latin Lady", "Tin Tin Deo", "Our Man Flint", "A Patch Of Blue", "Night Flight", and "17 Mile Drive". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Pacific Jazz pressing with deep groove.)

Leroy HutsonHutson ... CD
Curtom/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $11.99
An amazing record – quite possibly the best ever by Chicago soul legend Leroy Hutson! The whole thing's a smooth soul masterpiece beyond compare – a stunning blend of great songwriting, sexy vocals, and buttery production that rank it up there with the best work of 70s giants like Marvin Gaye, Leon Ware, or Roy Ayers. Leroy's got a voice that's both warm and mellow, yet incredibly honest at the same time – and the songs on the record show a range of colors and emotions that perfectly fit his unique style. Features mellow "Cool Out", the funky "Lucky Fellow", the sweet "All Because Of You", and the sublime cuts "It's Different" and "Can't Stay Away". The whole thing's great – and is one of the crowning achievements of the Chicago soul scene! CD

Cliff MartinezMy Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn ... CD
Milan, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Compelling work from Cliff Martinez – a contemporary soundtrack composer who's been getting the sort of nods usually reserved for classic artists – thanks to his work in films like Drive and this little gem! The music's heavy on keyboards, and done with a spacious sort of vibe – almost classic horror, but warmer and more ambitious – as Cliff doesn't just let the keys do all the work, and instead brings lots of his own personality and emotion to the music – shading things in around the edges with some colors and tones that are completely sublime. The record works very well away from the film – maybe even too well – and titles include "Pan To Me", "Bring In The Cows", "Breaking The Waves", "Hands", "You Can't Spend Two Hours", and "Shadows".

Charles MingusMingus Ah Um ... CD
Columbia, 1959. Used ... $2.99
One of Charles Mingus' true classics – and an essential album in any jazz collection! This 1959 gem was recorded by Mingus at a key point in his career – when he was rising from the jazz underground into the ranks of America's elite jazzmen, penning some of the most challenging work of his career, and working with incredible younger players that interpreted his work with a great deal of fire! The tracks are a bit more tightly arranged than work on some of Mingus' previous work for labels like Atlantic and Bethlehem, but that also gives them a razor-sharp emotional edge that's carried off perfectly by players who include John Handy and Shafi Hadi on alto saxes, Booker Ervin on tenor, Willie Dennis and Jimmy Knepper on trombones, Horace Parlan on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The album is filled with key Mingus classics – like "Better Git It In Your Soul", "Boogie Stop Shuffle", "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat", and "Fables of Faubus" – plus "Self Portrait In Three Colors", "Open Letter To Duke", and "Bird Call". CD

Claudette SoaresClaudette Soares (1967) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $32.99
Beautiful early work from Claudette Soares – a really lovely album of bossa-styled material, but sung with a slightly deeper edge too! The arrangements are wonderful – uncredited on the cover, but really a masterpiece in understatement – that carefully balanced mix of emotion and sadness with jazzier currents, which graced some of the best Brazilian records of this type from the time! Soares sometimes sings with a fuller feeling, but often keeps things in this well-pitched manner that really suits the careful instrumentation and all of its wonderful dark tones and colors. Titles include "Vim", "A Noite Da Ilusao", "Balada Do Tempo E Da Vida", "Nos", "Rosa Dos Ventos", and "Tao Doce Que E Sal". CD

✨✧ Clifford JordanMosaic – (Starting Time/A Story Tale) ... CD
Milestone, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
"Starting Time" is a great early 60s session by Jordan – who at the time of the recording, was one of a number of firey young tenor players from Chicago – all of them hard-blowing, with a nice soulful bottom that opened up a bop sound to more moods and emotions – but Jordan stood apart from most of them with an approach that was decidedly more complex and forward-thinking. As you'll hear on the album's tracks, he wasn't content enough to just blow off a riff – but had to twist things up a bit, working a tune for more shades and colors than it might yield with another player, pushing on the proceedings with an edge that's very strong. The great Wilbur Ware's on bass, and a young Cedar Walton's playing piano, and with warmth like that, Jordan and trumpeter Kenny Dorham sound great next to each other. Loads of original hard bop lines by Jordan, including "Extempore" and "Quittin' Time", plus "Mosaic" and "One Flight Down" by Cedar Walton. Even better is A Story Tale – a brilliant collaboration between Clifford Jordan and Sonny Red! Red's tone is excellent – a sharper one next to Jordan's more supple blowing – and the pair are a perfect team to lead off tunes like "Prints", "Hip Pockets", "A Story Tale", and "Defiance". CD
