Miles DavisQuiet Nights ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Good+ ... $9.99
Moody magic from Miles Davis and Gil Evans – one of the pair's most perfectly poised albums together, and a set with a slight bossa nova undercurrent! Evans' shimmering horn patterns are in fine form here – complicated, but never in cold and too-modern ways – just the right sort of backdrop for Miles' muted solo work – blow with a great sense of space and care throughout! There's almost a soundtrack sort of depth to the record, but the solos still keep the jazz element nicely in focus – and titles include "Summer Night", "Wait Till You See Her", "Aos Pes Da Cruz", "Song #1", "Song #2", "Corcovado", and "Once Upon A Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing, with black text.)

✨✧ Miles DavisIn Person Friday & Saturday Nights At The Blackhawk ... LP
Columbia, 1961. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Legendary early live work from Miles Davis – one of the first examples on record of the way that Davis could really stretch out in a concert setting! The music's a bit more straight ahead than later live dates, but still pretty open and exploratory – and in addition to Davis' sparkling work on trumpet, the album also features some killer tenor lines from Hank Mobley – working here as a key part of Miles' group, and blowing with a hell of a lot of soul. Rhythm is by the rock-solid trio of Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and the double-length set features 12 numbers in all – including "All Of You", "No Blues", "Bye Bye", "Walkin", "Neo", "So What", "Fran Dance", and "Well You Needn't".

✨✧ Raymond ScottReckless Nights & Turkish Twilights – The Music Of Raymond Scott ... CD
Columbia, Late 30s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful batch of instrumentals from the legendary Raymond Scott – and a set that features some of Scott's most wonderful compositions ever! These numbers all date from the 30s, and were originally released as 78s on the Master Records label – but this later Columbia package really brings the sounds together wonderfully, and gives Scott a long-overdue showcase as one of the budding modernists of the pre-war years – a composer who could match swing and whimsy, exoticism and jazz, playfulness and poise – all without every losing his beat! The instrumental is wonderful, the arrangements inventive, and the whole thing's got the same sort of audio appeal as an old Warner Brothers cartoon. Titles include "Twilight In Turkey", "The Penguin", "The Toy Trumpet", "Powerhouse", "New Years Eve In A Haunted House", "War Dance For Wooden Indians", "Peter Tambourine", and "At An Arabian House Party".

✨✧ Don DowningDoctor Boogie (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Roadshow/Octave (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
A killer classic from grooveman Don Downing – the kind of indie disco record that really broke big in the 70s – but which hardly ever got the longer-term fame it deserved! The grooves here are straight and simple – the best early east coast club modes of the mid 70s – more tight funk than commercial disco, especially when topped by some of the deeper soul moments of Don Downing – who can come across like Johnny Taylor on his Columbia cuts in a similar setting! Backings are great – handled by studio giants like Pat Rebillot on keyboards, Bad Bascomb on bass, and Jimmy Maelen on congas – and titles include "Dream World", "Sugar & Spice", "Doctor Boogie", "Love Doctor", and "Half Past Love". CD features bonus tracks – "I'm Not Loving (Tom Moulton disco)", "Lonely Days Lonely Nights (single version)", "Dream World (Tom Moulton disco)", and "Doctor Boogie (original single)". CD

Johnny MathisJohnny Mathis – The Singles (4CD set) ... CD
Columbia, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $39.99 59.98
A very cool package of work from the legendary Johnny Mathis – and one that brings together a fair bit of material that never made it onto his full length LPs! The set's filled with singles that Mathis recorded during his landmark run for Columbia Records – not just well-known a-sides, but also the b-sides too – and a number of lesser-known cuts that were unusual singles, but never scored big at the time – making for a rich range of discovery, even if you think you know Johnny's hits! The early material has that classic Columbia vibe – lush strings with an undercurrent of jazz – and those impeccable Mathis vocals throughout – and later material brings in a bit more soul, especially in the 70s. The 4CD package features 87 tracks in all – plus a booklet that contains notes and release information on each track. Titles include "You Are Beautiful", "Someone", "Story Of Our Love", "You Are Everything To Me", "I Love Her That's Why", "Gina", "Quiet Girl", "This Way Mary", "Christmas In The City Of Angels", "Take Good Care Of Her", "Walking Tall", "Among The First To Know", "Long Winter Nights", and lots more!

✨✧ Dexter GordonNights At The Keystone ... LP
Blue Note, 1978/1979. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Late live recordings from the mighty Dexter Gordon – wonderful material recorded at the Keystone Korner in the late 70s, with an inventively-blown power to match Gordon's earlier live sets from the European scene! The format here is similar – with Dexter out front, laying down incredible lines on tenor sax – and getting support from George Cables on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Eddie Gladden on drums. But in a way, the music here is even stronger than before – as Gordon's got a sharper edge, focused solo approach, and is working with an agility that really leaves us breathless. The tracks are long, but have the energy of Gordon's shorter studio tracks for Columbia at the time – and although we're not always huge fans of the "soloist in unfettered live setting" style of recording, we've gotta admit that we really love these tracks! 7 numbers in all, including "Easy Living", "It's You Or No One", "Antabus", "Sophisticated Lady", "More Than You Know", "Tangerine", and "Come Rain Or Come Shine".

✨✧ Ramsey LewisFunky Serenity ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweet electric funk from Ramsey Lewis! The album's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got Ramsey on Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and other keyboards, grooving away in an open-ended 70s mode that still retains all the heavy soul of his classic work for Chess. Morris Jennings adds in some very nice percussion with his drum work, and Cleveland Eaton's on funky bass, giving the set a strong bottom groove. Features the sublime sample cut "My Love For You", a great version of "Knights In White Satin" that's done with a weird spacey groove, plus the tracks "Kufany Mapenzi (Making Love)", "Serene Funk", "What It Is!", and "Dreams".
