Johnny RichardsSomething Else By Johnny Richards ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good- ... $1.99
Some of the best work ever from one of the most under-acknowledged jazz composers and arrangers of the 50s! Johnny Richards is probably best known for his recordings with Stan Kenton in the early part of the decade – but when he moved out on his own, he developed a tremendous sound that was even richer, even more full of color and tone than Kenton's own – and which was often done without any arch-modern tones, yet still fresh and free of cliche. The album's one of Richards' first as a leader – and features a wonderful lineup filled with top-shelf players – including Charlie Mariano on alto, Richie Kamuca on tenor, Stu Williamson and Pete Candoli on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino and Milt Bernhardt on trombones – all players who really bring a bold sort of energy to Johnny's vibrant arrangements. The sax work alone is tremendous – cutting with a beautiful edge across the larger charts – and titles include "Waltz Anyone", "Turn Aboot", "Band Aide", "Dimples", and "Burrito Borracho". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy mono red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has center splits in the spine and bottom seam, some wear and aging, and bumped corners.)

✨✧ Lew Tabackin & Shelley ManneTrackin' ... LP
Direct Cutting (Japan), 1976. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the Direct Cutting audiophile recordings made during the 70's, pressed up on Japanese vinyl, and pressed so that it needs to be played at 45 rpm for maximum fidelity. Apart from that geeky sort of information, though, the set's a nice quartet session featuring Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, Toshiko Akioshi on piano, Bob Daugherty on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. The set's a rare opportunity to hear Tabackin and Akioshi from the time without their big band, and the group plays nicely on 4 extended tracks. The best of these is a Tabackin original called "Trackin", but there's also a nice rendering of "Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert. Cover has light edge wear and a sticker.)

✨✧ People's ChoiceWe Got The Rhythm ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
People's Choice have the rhythm – as they did right from the very start, when they were first cutting records as a late 60s funk combo in Philly! The style here is more late 70s club, handled with perfection by the team of Gamble & Huff – but the PC approach is still a lot more funk than some of their contemporaries – with lots of sharp, live rhythms at the bottom of the grooves – and plenty of sweet keyboards from leader Frankie Brunson! Brunson sings a bit too, but the group seem to balance out the sound with lots of instrumental moments – and titles include "Here We Go Again", "Jam Jam Jam", "We Got The Rhythm", "Cold Blooded & Downright Funky", and "Opus De Funk". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring wear, edge wear, and a name in marker.)

✨✧ Eddie Costa & Art FarmerEddie Costa Quintet (Interlude pressing) ... LP
Interlude, 1957. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
An extremely great session from Eddie Costa – one of his best sessions recorded for Mode from 1957! In what is an odd meeting of players, especially for the label, Eddie's piano and vibes meet up with Art Farmer's trumpet, the alto of Phil Woods, bass of Teddy Kotick, and drums of Paul Motian – all of whom work together with the fluidity and soulfulness of some of the best Prestige sessions of the time. The horn work is tremendous – and it's hard to remember Woods sounding this great on other albums of the time, really cutting an edge next to Farmer's trumpet – which also has an incredible tone for the album, right up there with his Farmer's Market record. Titles include "Big Ben", "Blues Plus Eight", "Stretch In F", and "Get Out Of The Road". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has 4 inch splits in the seams, with some surface wear and small initials in pen on back.)

✨✧ Herbie HancockQuartet ... LP
CBS, 1982. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Acoustic magic from Herbie Hancock – proof that he wasn't only cutting electro records in the 80s! The set's got a fluid, open feel that's a bit like some of the VSOP Quintet work – although the group here is slightly different, with Hancock on acoustic piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – plus a young Wynton Marsalis on trumpet – stepping in where Wayne Shorter and Freddie Hubbard left off. The tracks are somewhat sharp-edged and modern, but never in a way that's too outside – more just a continuation of the VSOP mode, with some of the Marsalis love of darker colors and tones. The double-length set has plenty of room for long solos – and titles include "Well You Needn't", "Round Midnight", "Clear Ways", "A Quick Sketch", "The Eye Of The Hurricane", "Parade", "The Sorcerer", "Pee Wee", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole.)
