Columbia NightsIn All Things ... CD
Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99
We waited years for the full length debut of Columbia Nights, and not only was it worth the wait, it's a stunner – a beautiful batch of timeless spacey soul! Essentially the multi-instrumentalist trio of John E Daise, Jason "Brotherspanky" Edwards and Hayling Price, they have really expansive sound – built from bass, synths, keys, percussion that lifts it to cosmic heights – in a perfect mix of atmospheric instrumentals and vocal-led tracks. The sound carries influences from soaring 70s soul jazz, to post millennium electronic soul – which mingle seamlessly, and carry a real depth of genuine soul, however spacey the composition! The guest vocalists are top notch, including Diggs Duke, Aaron "AB" Abernathy, Vaughan Octavia and others, and titles include "Sphere", "Cerulean", "In All Things", "Circle", "Now" with Diggs Duke, "The Rhythm" with Sarai Abdul-Malik, "Coming Home" with Aaron "AB" Abernathy, "Neverend/All For You" feat Siara Shawn, "Ever Between" with B Jamelle and "Glide" with Vaughan Octavia.

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersJazz Messengers (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Good+ ... $19.99
A killer early album by Art Blakey and his first incarnation of The Messengers – recorded before Horace Silver left the group, and a rare non-Blue Note outing done for Columbia Records! The ensemble here features Donald Byrd on trumpet, Hank Mobley on tenor, and Doug Watkins on bass – alongside Silver's piano and Blakey's thundering work on drums – and the album is virtually a blueprint for the sound of hardbop in years to come – focused and intense, but still with plenty of room for individual solo expression! Tracks include a classic reading of "Nica's Dream", plus Horace Silver's great "Ecaroh", and Mobley's own "Infra-Rae" and "Hank's Symphony". LP, Vinyl record album

DionKickin Child – 1965 Columbia Recordings ... LP
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy Gatefold ... $21.99
A pretty amazing little record from Dion DiMucci – especially if you only know his earliest rock and roll hits! Dion was always a cat who was hipper than most of his mainstream contemporaries – as evidence by the surprisingly deep turn he'd take at the end of the 60s – but during his early years with Columbia, he was often improperly assigned to songs and sessions – and never really got to show off the more interesting ideas he had in mind for his music. Enter producer Tom Wilson, who was working with Bob Dylan during the early electric years – and who, on most of these tracks, allowed Dion himself to move in a folk rock direction – mostly on his own compositions, which are really incredible – and have a style that could easily sit next to the mid 60s classics on Columbia by The Byrds or Dylan, even though the label never thought much of the recordings at the time. Instead, some of these tracks were issued as singles, or got much later release – and some never saw the light of day at all – and are finally brought together here in a decades-overdue complete album of this great musical moment. If you dig the deeper strands of the transforming folk generation, you'll find plenty to love here – as a younger, clean-cut artist grows his hair, and really finds himself on titles that include "My Love", "Tomorrow Won't Bring The Rain", "Wake Up Baby", "Kickin Child", "Two Ton Feather", "Knowing I Won't Go Back There", "You Move Me Babe", "So Much Younger", and "Time In My Heart For You". Also includes versions of the Dylan tracks "Farewell", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", and "Baby I'm In The Mood For You". LP, Vinyl record album

JJ Johnson & Kai WindingJay & Kai (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, Early 50s. Very Good ... $2.99
JJ Johnson and Kai Winding at the height of their dual powers – working together here beautifully at a level that both embraces the modern sound of the trombone in larger 50s ensembles, but also offers up the more fluid personality of the instrument in the smaller combo scene! The pair have a great way of coming together at the start, then splitting off to find their own space on the tunes – a wonderful antidote to some of the too-tight trombone lines of the 50s, and a great reminder that there's always a voice behind the horn. The group on the record features Dick Katz on piano and celeste, plus either Bill Crow or Milt Hinton on bass, and Shadow Wilson or Kenny Clarke on drums. Candido plays a bit of percussion on the track "Caribe" – and the pair play tromboniums on the tune "Tromboniums In Motion". Other tracks include "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", "The Song Is You", and "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Early 40s. Very Good ... $9.99
A nice little 50s album that compiles Gene's work from the early 40s – his groundbreaking early swing sides, some featuring singer Anita O'Day, others with the great Roy Eldridge on trumpet! Tunes are tight, lively, and feature some killer drum work (natch!) – and titles include "After You've Gone", "Murder Hey Says", "Tuxedo Junction", "Massachusetts", "Disc Jockey Jump", "Knock Me A Kiss", "Drum Boogie", "Let Me Off Uptown", and "Slow Down".

Lambert, Hendricks & RossHottest New Group In Jazz – The Complete Columbia Recordings ... CD
Columbia, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $5.99
How can we even begin to describe the genius of Lambert Hendricks and Ross? The group was a jazz vocal supergroup that merged three talents that had already made a big name in the bebop vocalese field – Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks, and the lovely Annie Ross – and the project was an attempt to completely work the emerging vocalese style onto a full-blown jazz group. Previously, the singers had only sung vocal solos for one instrument – but with a trio of players, they were suddenly able to take over the solos of all the frontline instruments in a group, such as the piano, trumpet, and tenor solos in their incredible version of "Home Cookin". That track alone is a perfect summation of the group's genius – as it offers a true vocal interplay, with words in place of notes and changes, and opens the already great soul jazz classic into a whole new level of meaning and wonder. It also helps that that track, like most of the ones on this CD, features excellent rhythm backing by Gildo Mahones, Ike Isaacs, and Walt Bolden, plus the occasional alto solo by Pony Poindexter. Their Columbia work's always been their best – and this CD brings together all 3 LPs (Hottest Group In Jazz, Sing Ellington, and the amazing High Flying), plus 7 previously unissued tracks! There's a whopping 39 cuts in all – and the set's one of the best jazz vocal CDs you could ever buy! CD

Michel LeGrandLeGrand Jazz (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, 1959. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The classic meeting of the great French arranger/pianist with American jazz players like Miles Davis, Ben Webster, Milt Hinton, Donald Byrd, Hank Jones, and others. The tracks are a beautiful strident blend of Legrand's best arranging styles, and they show his keen talent for letting the soloist step forth into the spotlight, while complicated orchestrations swirl all around him. The titles are mostly jazz standards, but they're done in a great way, with lots of punch, and lots of great work by all the players. Titles include "Round Midnight", "Night In Tunisia", "Nuages", "In A Mist", and "Django". LP, Vinyl record album

ManhattansI Kinda Miss You – The Anthology – Columbia Records 1973 to 1987 ... CD
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
Beautiful harmony soul from The Manhattans! This excellent 2CD set pulls together a bunch of the greatest songs they recorded for Columbia in the 70s & 80s, with all of their classic singles – hits, comparably overlooked gems, and B-sides alike – plus key album tracks from a nearly 15 year run. Already group soul veterans by the time they began recording for Columbia, The Manhattans are one of those rare groups who managed to get better and better over the years, really hitting their peak in the 70s and riding high for years to come, well into the 1980s! Disc 1 features a perfectly chosen selection of material from the prime years of the 70s, including "There's No Me Without You", "You'd Better Believe It", "Wish That You Were Mine", "Summertime In The City", "Hurt", "Gypsy Man", "Love Talk", "Am I Losing You", "Here Comes The Hurt Again" and many more. Disc 2 focuses on material from their surprisingly wonderful 80s years – carrying classic soul ballad tradition pretty deep into the new decade – a really remarkable achievement given the rapidly changing sounds and styles of that decade! Titles include "Shining Star", "Girl Of My Dream", "Just One Moment Away", "Crazy", "Forever By Your Side", "Where Did We Go Wrong?" with Regina Belle, "All I Need", "Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)" and more. 35 tracks on 2CDs!

✨✧ VariousWhistle Bait – 25 Rockabilly Rave Ups ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Massive sounds from Columbia Records – a smoking set of rockabilly numbers that the legendary label cut during a time when it was making most of its money selling mainstream pop, classical music, and Broadway showtunes albums! Yet beneath all that big-cash production, Columbia found the time to get some amazing records cut in the studio – searing tracks that still bristle with plenty of power and raw energy all these many years later – and which easily match the fire and frenzy of singles you'd hear from some of the more obscure indies that are always prized by collectors of early rock singles! Some artists are Columbia country singers, stepping out for much more gritty action on cuts like these – others are more obscure rock acts that hit the label's roster far from the clean pop of Mitch Miller – and the CD features 25 gems that include "Whistle Bait" by Larry Collins, "Dig Boy Dig" by Freddie Hart, "Big Fool" by Ronnie Self, "I Got A Hole In My Pocket" by Little Jimmy Dickens, "Romp Stompin Boogie" by Jaycee Hill, "Good Rockin Baby" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Mean Mama Blues" by Marty Robbins, "I'm Comin Home" by Johnny Horton, "Ah Poor Little Baby" by Billy Crash Craddock, "Hoy Hoy" by Collins Kids, "Everybody's Rockin" by Werly Fairburn, "Rawhide" by Link Wray, "You're Humbuggin Me" by Lefty Frizzell, and "Ugly & Slouchy" by Maddox Brothers.

Lola AlbrightDreamsville ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good ... $24.99
A really unique session of vocal jazz – and one of the few ever directed by Henry Mancini! Lola was best known for her work on TV in the show Peter Gunn, but despite her cheesecake looks, she's actually a pretty nice singer – with a dusky, late nite sort of sound that's perfect for the Mancini backings on the set. The album features a fair number of original Mancini tunes – all in the moody mellow mode as the more famous "Dreamsville" title track – and Lola burns in a nice smokey tone, on tracks that include "Sorta Blue", "It's Always You", "Soft Sounds", "Slow & Easy", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Two Sleepy People", and "Brief & Breezy".

Leda Annest/Phil MoorePortrait Of Leda ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $1.99
A wonderfully moody session from the late 50s – one that features the eerie vocals of Leda Annest over the orchestrations of Phil Moore! Leda's got a haunting voice that's somewhere in the range of Yma Sumac, but a bit less dramatic – more kind of a wordless instrument, used amidst the orchestrations in broad washes of color and tone. Moore scored the entire piece for Leda's voice – an extended 3 part suite that runs through series of dark, jazz, and playful moods – all featuring some incredible vocals by Leda!
