✨✧ Dexter Gordon & Wardell GrayJazz Concert West Coast – Jazz West Coast Live – Hollywood Jazz Vol 1 ... CD
Savoy, 1948. Used ... Out Of Stock
LA bebop jam session material, featuring two long tracks recorded live in the city of angels, probably illegally by Savoy's Herman Lubinsky, who was a noted crook. Who cares, though, as the sides give us a great picture of the kind of lively cutting jam sessions that were ripping through the Central Ave scene of the old days. Players include Dexter Gordon, Sonny Criss, Hampton Hawes, Howard McGhee, and Wardell Gray in the lead – and the two long tracks are "Disorder At The Border" and "The Hunt". CD

Black Lion (Japan), Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Rare LA bop sides from Dexter Gordon and Wardell Gray – two of the heaviest tenors to ever grace the west coast, recorded here in the prime of their late 40s careers. Tracks were recorded during the years 1946, 1947, and 1952 – and 6 tracks (including "The Rubiayat", "My Kinda Love", "Citizen's Bop", and "Man With A Horn") feature Gordon and Gray together in a group with Gerry Wiggins on piano and organ. The remaining 6 tracks feature Gray heading up bop quartets with either Dodo Marmaroso or Errol Garner on piano – and titles include "Dell's Bells", "One For Prez", "Blue Lou", and "Easy Swing".

✨✧ Wardell GrayWardell Gray Memorial Album (2LP set) ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s/1964. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of the best-ever documents of the young genius of tenorist Wardell Gray – exactly the kind of music that shows why he was one of the biggest and best of the bop saxophonists – before he was taken away from us all too soon! The material here was originally issued on 78s or 45s, and comes together as a great full length representation of Gray at his best – and on the set Wardell plays tenor in one group with Al Haig on piano and Roy Haynes on drums – on titles that include "Easy Living", "Twisted", and "Southside". Another combo features Phil Hill on piano – on "Treadin", "Grayhound", and "Blue Gray". And the last combo is Teddy Charles' West Coasters – with Charles on vibes, Frank Morgan on alto, and Sonny Clark on piano – the last two of whom make their debut on the record! On the second half, Wardell works in some bigger groups on great long tracks with a nicely jamming feel! Players include Sonny Criss on alto, Art Farmer and Clark Terry on trumpet, Dexter Gordon on tenor, and Hampton Hawes on piano – and titles include "Move", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Lover", "Farmer's Market", "April Skies", "Jackie", and "Sweet & Lovely".

✨✧ Billy EckstineMister B & The Band – Savoy Sessions ... LP
Savoy, 1945/1946. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
Amazing work from the early, legendary years of Billy Eckstine – that time when he was fronting one of the hippest backing groups a vocalist could hope to have! Eckstine's voice was already becoming the stuff of legend by the time of these recordings – but thanks to contributions from a host of famous boppers, his band was getting equal fame, too – a really legendary lineup that includes such greats as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie,Kenny Dorham, and Fats Navarro on trumpets; Wardell Gray, Dexter Gordon, and Gene Ammons on tenor; Leo Parker on baritone; Art Blakey on drums; and many other huge names too! The band was virtually a school for a whole generation of jazzmen to come – allowing them to play together, get to know each other, and spin off in important small groups – much in the way the Kenton group a few years later allowed so much development on the west coast. And amidst all this great music, Billy's vocals have never sounded better – much bolder and hard-swinging than in later years! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBlack California ... LP
Savoy, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A great compilation – despite the title – one that features west coast recordings made by Savoy, showing the less "cool jazz" side of the LA scene in the late 40s and early 50s! There's some excellent material on here not available elsewhere – especially some great bop groovers in the Central Ave kind of mode. The album's got 3 tracks by Slim Gaillard – "Laguna", "Boogin At Bergs", "Dunkin Bagel. 4 by a large group with Art Farmer, Eric Dolphy, Joe Howard, and Roy Porter – "Pete's Beat", "Sippin With Cisco", "This Is You", and "Gassin The Wig". 4 more by a quartet with Freddie Jackson and Harold Land – "Outlandish", "Swingin On Savoy", "San Diego Bounce", and "I'll Remember April". And more by Sonny Criss and Wardell Gray, Art Pepper and Hampton Hawes, and Helen Humes and Dexter Gordon. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp and light wear.)
