✨✧ Shelly ManneShelly Manne & His Men Vol 2 (2 x 7" EP) ... 7-inch
Contemporary, 1954. Used Gatefold (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
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". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Sleeve has some light wear.)

Muhal Richard Abrams with Cecil McBeeRoots Of Blue ... LP
RPR, 1986. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A wonderful album of spare duets that recalls some of our favorite work by Muhal from the 70s! Abrams solos with a wide range of emotions and colors, working around soulful basslines from Cecil McBee that bring out the warmer side of his playing. All tracks are long, and titles include "Roots Of Blue", "Direflex", "Metamor", and "Time Into Space Into Time". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Clifford Jordan & Sonny RedStory Tale ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A brilliant collaboration between Clifford Jordan and Sonny Red! At the time of this recording, Jordan 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 works especially well for Red, who opens up here more than he does on some of his other sides from the time. 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". LP, Vinyl record album

Erwin LehnColor In Jazz ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1973. Sealed ... $29.99
One of the all-time classic MPS sessions! Erwin Lehn leads a very tight grooving combo that mixes hard big group arrangements (in the style of the Clarke-Boland or Peter Herbholzheimer groups), with some extremely powerful solos and very inventive arrangements. There's lots of wonderful little elements in here – like some hard tenor (from Joki Freund), groovy organ, and a very slinky brass section. The instruments wail in and out of each other, with a sound that mixes rich colors and emotions with quick darting grooves – and the session's a winner all the way through! Titles include "Alfredo", "Atlantic II", "El Cuervo Nuevo", "Lift Up", and "Color". LP, Vinyl record album

Howard McGheeDusty Blue ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the best of the early 60s comeback albums by the legendary bop trumpeter Howard McGhee – and a record that really has the player finding a whole new groove in his music! At this point, Maggie's got a fantastic tone that was missing from his earlier records, filled with pain and raw emotion – but also measured with a maturity that gives his solos an incredible sense of economy that delivers a whole hell of a lot with just a few simple notes – a balance that comes through beautifully here, maybe even more so than on any other record by Howard from the time! He's playing here in a great group that includes Roland Alexander on tenor, Bennie Green on trombone, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Pepper Adams on baritone – and tracks include "Dusty Blue", "Groovin High", "Cottage For Sale", "Flyin Colors", and "With Malice Towards None".

Francis HimeFrancis Hime ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the few full albums ever recorded by Francis Hime – a brilliant Brazilian composer/arranger whose work was instrumental to 70s MPB! Hime's talents place him somewhere between the baroque brilliance of Marcos Valle and the ambitiously soaring early work of Milton Nascimento – a complicated territory shaded with rich emotion, broad colors of sound, and a soulfulness that holds the whole thing together beautifully. The album's a lasting tribute to Hime's genius, and a real landmark in Brazilian music – with titles that include "Requiem", "Valsa Rancho", "Atras Da Porta", "A Meia Luz", "Olivia", and "Sem Mais Adeus".

✨✧ Terry CallierI Just Can't Help Myself ... LP
Cadet, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Clarke Boland Big BandAt Her Majesty's Pleasure ... LP
Black Lion, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest long-form albums from the Clarke Boland Big Band – a sophisticated suite that not only shows off the writing ability of Francy Boland, but also demonstrates the group's ability to swing like a mofo, even when things are serious! The album's a jazz suite written by Boland, and dedicated to the great prisons of England – where Johnny Griffin was once kept "At Her Majesty's Pleasure", due to non-payment of some income tax. The experience of Griffin led Boland to explore the idea of the British penal system with a number of powerful emotional themes, and the result of this writing is one of the CBBB's best albums of the late 60s – filled with rich colors and tones that go far beyond the earlier modes of the group, but without some of the too-complicated elements that sometimes show up in later suites. A good part of the album's success comes from the strength of the soloists – players who include Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, Tony Coe on clarinet, Sahib Shihab on flute and soprano, Kenny Wheeler and Benny Bailey on trumpets, and Ake Persson and Nat Peck on trombones. Titles include "Pentonville", "Wormwood Scrubs", "Doing Time", "Broadmoor", and "Going Straight". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thad JonesMagnificent Thad Jones Vol 3 (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The hardest to find of the great Thad Jones albums for Blue Note! Thad plays in a harder groove than usual, but still with all of his beautiful fragile lyricism – and the album's a masterpiece of control while still opening up in the bold Blue Note mode of the time! The unusual combo here features Benny Powell on trombone, Gigi Gryce on alto, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Elvin Jones on drums – a good mix of modernists and straight ahead players who help color the album strongly with their efforts. Excellent stuff, and although the material is largely hardbop, it opens up with a range of colors and emotions that you don't always get from Blue Note. Titles include "Let's", "Thadrack", and "Slipped Again". CD

✨✧ Charles MingusMingus Ah Um (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
