✨✧ Mike CuozzoMike Cuozzo With The Costa Burke Trio ... LP
Jubilee, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the few albums as a leader from Mighty Mike Cuozzo – a tight tenor player with a great sort of 50s swing! The set's the kind of no-nonsense, well-blown effort you might expect from Sonny Stitt or Seldon Powell at the time – tunes that pack in plenty over a relatively short space – really transformed by Mike's deft talents on the tenor, with a surprising degree of soul in the mix as well! Rhythm is by Eddie Costa on piano, Vinnie Burke on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the whole thing's got the solid feel of a lost Roost session. Titles include "Blue Jeans", "Bounce For Mike", "Ten AM", "Lover Man", and "That Old Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneJohn Coltrane In The Winner's Circle ... CD
Bethlehem (Japan), 1957. Used ... $8.99
Rare stuff from John Coltrane! The album features Trane playing tenor on only 4 of the album's 8 tracks – making it kind of surprising that they used his name in the title – but the album is a lesser-known batch of large group recordings that offer an interesting early chapter in his career! The main force behind the album is arranger Harry Tubbs – possibly not a name that's as sexy as John Coltrane, hence the billing – but a worthy leader for the date, given the quality of the music. Many of the other players here are small combo heroes who can also shine brightly in bigger groups – such as Donald Byrd and Art Farmer on trumpets, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Al Cohn on baritone sax, Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, and Oscar Pettiford on bass – plus Rolf Kuhn, making an early American appearance on clarinet. Coltrane gets in some nice, but short moments on the date – but the bigger charm is the full ensemble work – on titles that include "She Didn't Say Yes", "Turtle Walk", "At Home With The Blues", "Seabreeze", and "Love & The Weather".

Gigi GryceDoin The Gigi ... CD
Uptown, 1957/1960/1961. Used ... $12.99
A treasure trove of rare work from reedman Gigi Gryce – one of the most important talents of the 50s, presented here in a range of unissued sides from the best years of his career! The CD's overflowing with amazing material – some live dates, and some unissued studio material as well – all done in that perfect second period style of Gryce's career – the point when he moved past the tighter modernism of early years, and really opened up with this amazingly soulful sound! His alto work is impeccable – unlike anyone else we can think of on the instrument – very focused and crisp, yet wonderfully warm and human as well – with support on most numbers from excellent sidemen Richard Williams on trumpet and Richard Wyands on piano – two players who always seemed to drive Gigi onto new heights! Material includes 4 tracks from a 1961 Birdland broadcast – also with Eddie Costa on on vibes – then 2 more from a 1961 recording session also with Costa. Then there's 6 more cuts from an unissued 1960 session – and all three of these feature Williams and Wyands. The set's rounded out by material from a 1957 Signal Records party – featuring a group with Cecil Payne on baritone sax and Duke Jordan on piano. All cuts have been lovingly remastered, with the usual great sound we love from Uptown – and the set features 70 minutes of music, 18 tracks that include "Blues In Bloom", "Down Home", "A Premonition Of You", "Dancing The Gigi", "I'll Walk Alone", "Sonor", "All The Things You Are", "Man Of Moods", and "Movin".

Coleman HawkinsHawk Swings (United pressing) ... LP
United, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
An obscure session that was nearly lost, because it was issued on a cheapo label – but which features some really great work from Coleman Hawkins! The format is small combo, with long tracks that really open up – and Hawk is blowing in that fantastic mode that he began to use a lot around the end of the 50s. His tone is incredible – at once deep and soulful, but also touched with some raspiness and a bit of a biting reed approach – almost a bit of Sonny Rollins at times, with a sound that really makes us want to listen to more work from this fruitful (and overlooked) time in Hawk's career! Players include Thad Jones on trumpet, Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, George Duvivier on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – and titles include "Bean In Orbit", "Stalking", "Moodsville", and "Hassle".

Mundell LoweBlues For A Stripper (aka Satan In High Heels) ... LP
Charlie Parker/Modern Harmonic, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
Great music from jazz guitarist Mundell Lowe – a set that was originally written as the soundtrack for an early 60s sexploitation film, Satin In High Heels – but which works equally well as a jazz album on its own! Lowe's in a slightly different setting than on some of his earlier records – working with larger arrangements that include a rich array of sounds and tunes from Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, Clark Terry and Joe Newman on trumpets, Al Cohn and Oliver Nelson on tenor, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, and Phil Woods on alto sax – an all-star lineup who make the music sound way better than you might expect! Lowe's guitar gets a lot of center space in the sound – providing the right sort of slinky, crime jazz-styled elements – and titles include "Coffee Coffee", "Lake In the Woods", "Pattern Of Evil", "Blues For A Stripper", and "East Side Drive In". Nice jazzy sound, and a very sexy theme! LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie ParisSings The Lyrics Of Ira Gershwin (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Time (Japan), 1960. Used ... $24.99
Great stuff from Jackie Paris – one of the hipper male vocalists of the 50s, a singer that we'd rank in an elite small group with Mark Murphy or Matt Dennis for cool small combo singing! The album's one of Jackie's best – based around Gershwin tunes, but done with a hip jazzy feel – great small combo backing from players who include Phil Bodner on flute and sax, Joe Wilder on trumpet, Barry Galbraith on guitar, Eddie Costa on vibes, and Roy Haynes on drums – all musicians who keep things cool throughout. Titles include "Girl Of The Moment", "Let's Take A Walk Around The Block", "Sure Thing", "My Ship", "One Life To Live", and "For The Life of Me". CD

Betty RocheTake The A Train ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the few small group sessions from vocalist Betty Roche – a singer who was known for her work with Duke Ellington, but who sounds even better in this setting! Betty's got a style that's warmly raspy – a bit more edge than some of the cooler vocalists on the Bethlehem label at the time, but still backed with a group that's slightly modern – in keeping with other dates on the label. The combo features Eddie Costa on vibes, Donn Trenner on piano, Conte Candoli on trumpet, Whitey Mitchell on bass, and Davey Williams on drums – all grooving gently with Betty on a set of tracks that includes "Take The A Train", "Something To Live For", "All My Life", "All Too Soon", "You Don't Love Me Any More", "Go Away Blues", and "September In The Rain".

✨✧ Tal FarlowSwinging Guitar Of Tal Farlow ... CD
Verve, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Tal's most compelling albums of the 50s – a drummer-less trio session, recorded with Eddie Costa on piano and Vinnie Burke on bass. Tal's tone is as great as always – edgily carving out some rhythms with the trio, swinging more gently than the title might imply, in a mode that might later be taken up by Jim Hall, but which here is all Tal's own! Titles include "Meteor", "Taking A Chance On Love", "Yardbird Suite", "Like Someone In Love", and "I Love You". Plus, the CD features 4 bonus tracks – 2 versions of "Gone With The Wind, and alternate takes of "Yardbird Suite" and "Taking A Chance On Love". Great stuff – with over 60 minutes of music. CD

✨✧ Herbie MannFlute Flight ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Better than you might think – and a nice set of flute-oriented hardbop that has Herbie Mann playing next to Belgian flautist Bobby Jaspar! The pair of them trade off lines in a couple of long tracks that have that Prestige "blowin' session" feel to them, with lots of spare rhythm playing in the back that lets the soloists wander amply in the front – and Jaspar takes over on main flute duties on some other tracks too. Other players include Tommy Flanagan, Joe Puma, Eddie Costa, and Doug Watkins – and tracks include "Bo Do", "Solacium", "Flute Bass Blues", and "Flute Bob". CD

✨✧ VariousBest Of Newport '57 ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The full scope of Verve's massive recordings from the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival – served up in a 2CD set that includes many lesser-known numbers! The set certainly features some of the bigger name acts from Newport who've filled Verve's catalog over the years – Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, and others – but it also features some of the younger, hipper talents that hit the Newport stage that year – as well as some of the older trad players who were being re-exposed to a younger audience at the festival too! 2CD set features 24 tracks in all – some on CD for the first time – including "I Never Knew" by Mat Mathews, "Blue Lou" by Leon Sash, "Love Is Here To Stay" by Carmen McRae, "Blues For Louis" by Bobby Henderson, "Bourbon Street Parade" by George Lewis, "Between Me & Myself" by Toshiko Akioshi, "Love For Sale" by Gigi Gryce & Donald Byrd, "Nona's Blues" by Cecil Taylor, "There Will Never Be Another You" by Eddie Costa, "Lady Sings The Blues" by Billie Holiday, "S Wonderful" by Don Elliott, "I Got Rhythm" by Teddy Wilson, and "Boogie Woogie" by Jimmy Rushing.

✨✧ Tal FarlowTal ... LP
Verve, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tal Farlow was one of the all-time greats of jazz guitar during the 50s, and an album like this captures him at his finest! The set's a no-nonsense batch of tracks that features Tal with a trio that includes Eddie Costa on piano and Vinnie Burke on bass – a wonderfully understated lineup that lets Farlow's guitar take plenty of lead space! Tunes are mostly familiar, but it's Tal's tone that rocks the record – as he's both once raw with the strings, and lightly melodic with his playing. Great stuff, and with the tracks "Yesterdays", "Chuckles", "Anything Goes", "Isn't It Romantic", and "How About You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy trumpeter logo Verve pressing, with deep groove – nice and clean! Cover has some light wear, but is very nice overall.)

✨✧ Stan GetzApasionado ... CD
A&M, 1990. Used ... $4.99
A late record by Stan Getz – one of his last – recorded with Herb Alpert and Eddie Del Barrio arranging – a record with a some surprisingly wonderful sax solos by Stan given the late date – and a surprisingly tight sound given the extended roster of players! The sound is pretty polished as a whole, which doesn't squander Stan's work, and the clean & lean vibe features contributors such as Del Barrio on synth, Kenny Baron on piano, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, Oscar Castro Neves on guitar, a George Bohanon & Reginald Young on trombone, Rick Bapist and others on trumpet, and more. Titles include "Apasionado", "Coba", "Waltz For Stan", "Espanola", "Madrugada", "Amoruous Cat", "Midnight Ride" and "Lonely Lady". CD

✨✧ Blue MitchellSummer Soft ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A later set from Blue Mitchell – but a great one too, and done in a fully-arranged soul fusion style that seems to bring out the best in his playing! The album's got a smoother sound than some of Blue's work for Blue Note or Mainstream – but the groove comes out surprisingly well, without any cliches or cheesiness – and Blue himself turns in some wonderful solo work for the record, blowing in an open-ended mode that's similar to Donald Byrd's style of the time. Other players include Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Cedar Walton on piano, Eddie Harris and Harold Land on tenor, and Paulinho Da Costa on percussion – and arrangements for the set were handled by Phil Wright and Cedar Walton, the latter of whom brings in some of the tight funky feel of his own late 70s fusion sets for Columbia. Titles include "A Day At The Mint", "Summer Soft", "Try Not To Forget", "Love Has Made Me A Dreamer", "Evergreen", and "Funkthesizer". LP, Vinyl record album

TwennynineTwennynine With Lenny White ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1980. Used ... $5.99
One of the best ever records from Twennynine – produced and arranged by Lenny White & Larry Dunn – jazzy modern soul at it's dawn of the decade finest! Twennynine With Lenny White is way at the front of the pack of a lot of the 80s groove elements to follow in its wake – with popping basslines, heavy bass pedals, compressed guitar riffs and a really insistent overall groove! The record's got a pretty straight R&B feel, but thanks to White's nice production, there's a lot of good fusion elements in the mix – which raises the album a step above, and makes it groove nicely. The group features keyboards by Skip Anderson, doing a great job stepping in for Don Blackman, with lead vocals by Tanya Willoughby, synths by Larry Dunn, percussion by Paulinho De Costa, guitar by Eddie Martinez, bass by Barry Johnson and others. Titles include "My Melody", "Kid Stuff", "Fancy Dancer", "Slip Away", "We Had To Break Away", and "Love & Be Loved". CD

✨✧ Jack CostanzoMr Bongo And His Afro Cuban Band ... CD
GNP, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic set of west coast Latin from Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo! The album's one of Jack's best from the early days – a hard-driving set of short and jazzy numbers that are filled with strong percussion and good solos – showing that LA could cut Latin every bit as great as artists on the New York scene! Eddie Cano's playing piano on the set, and tunes include "Goza Negra", "Bongo Festeris" & "Caravan". Plus, the CD's expanded past the original album – and features tracks that include "Viva Tirado", "Guantanamera", and "Chicken & Rice". CD
