Eddie Costa/Vinnie BurkeEddie Costa/Vinnie Burke Trio ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
A spare and sweet little set from the team of Eddie Costa and Vinnie Burke – one of the best of the east coast chamber jazz groups of the mid 50s! The pair's trio has Eddie on piano and vibes, Vinnie on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – all working together to craft light, rhythmic versions of tunes that really change them up rhythmically – working in the most playful mode of the time to freely create over the top of familiar numbers that include "Fascinating Rhythm", "It Could Happen To You", "Sweet & Lovely", "Yesterdays", and "Let's Do It". The set also features two nice originals – "Unison Blues" and "Pile Driver". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

Clark Terry/Coleman HawkinsEddie Costa – Memorial Concert ... LP
Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $11.99
An interesting tribute to the passing of pianist Eddie Costa – mostly because the overall feel is much more in a soulful hardbop mode, quite different than the modern and chamber sides that Costa cut during the 50s! Side one features work by the Clark Terry quartet – with Terry on trumpet, Dick Hyman on piano, Art Davis on drums, and Osie Johnson on bass – and side two features and even better group led by Coleman Hawkins – with Hawk blowing in that great late solo style of his, alongside players that include Sonny Clark, Roy Haynes, and Chuck Israels. Tracks on the album are all long and intimate – mellow, but soulful, with plenty of interesting solo space. Titles include "The Simple Waltz", "Just You Just Me", "I'm Confessin", and "Things Ain't What They Used To Be". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing in the textured cover.)

✨✧ Eddie CostaHouse Of Blue Lights ... CD
Dot/Universal (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked album from pianist Eddie Costa – recorded in the late 50s for Dot Records! The set's a bit different than some of Costa's other material from the time – in that has Eddie playing with a much heavier touch on the left hand – inflecting the keys in a bluesier mode, but also working here with some modern touches from drummer Paul Motian, who's in the trio along with bassist Wendell Marshall. Costa's tone has changed decidedly for the record – and he's often got a loudly flowing approach to the keys that echoes later work by McCoy Tyner, Steve Kuhn, and other key 60s innovators. And even though tracks are again mostly familiar numbers, Costa's really pushing them to new levels – pushing, pausing, and twisting them into unusual time structures and melodic progressions. Titles include "House Of Blue Lights", "Diane", "When I Fall In Love", "My Funny Valentine", "What's To Ya", and "Anabelle". CD

✨✧ Mike CuozzoMike Cuozzo With The Costa Burke Trio ... CD
Jubilee (Japan), 1956. Used ... $11.99
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". CD

Tal FarlowThis Is Tal Farlow ... LP
Verve, 1958. Near Mint- ... $33.99
Guitar jazz genius from the amazing Tal Farlow – working here at the height of his powers on a classic session for Verve – a real standout album from the 50s, and one with some slightly more modern overtones than even other Farlow sessions at the time! Part of the strength of the set is the piano work of Eddie Costa – which dances nicely in between the notes, often creating the same sense of counterpoint and interplay as on Costa's excellent albums with Sal Salvador from the same period. Farlow's tone is amazing throughout – rough and pointed, yet always fluid – and titles include "Lean On Me", "The More I See You", "Stella By Starlight", "Topsy", "All The Things You Are", and "Wonder Why".

Stan GetzApasionado ... CD
A&M, 1990. Used ... $1.99
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

Lenny HambroNature of Things ... LP
Epic, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An excellent album of tunes with a cool Konitz-like sound – featuring the vastly under-discovered reed work of Lenny Hambro, with piano by Eddie Costa, and guitar by either Sal Salvador or Barry Galbraith. The tracks are short and angular – but have a particularly soulful groove in the mix, one that's really surprising, considering that the overall package makes you think the record would be some sleepy over-wrought major label jazz side. Swings like a mofo from a label like Storyville or Bethlehem – and with tracks that include "Comin Thru", "Blue Light", "I Love You Much Too Much", "Libation For Celebration", and "My Future Just Passed".

Coleman HawkinsColeman Hawkins (aka The Hawk Swings) ... LP
Crown, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $5.99
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".

Herbie MannFlute Flight ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $7.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a split spine and bottom seam, and some pen on front.)

Herbie MannYardbird Suite ... LP
Savoy, 1957. Very Good+ ... $34.99
Very early work from Herbie Mann – delivered with a lot more fire than some of his later sides! The album's kind of a blend of bop and the 50s chamber jazz mode from which Mann emerged – played with a strong combo that includes Eddie Costa on vibes, Joe Puma on guitar, and Phil Woods on alto sax – plus rhythm from Wendell Marshall on bass and Bobby Donaldson on drums. The overall feel here is somewhat similar to some of the sides that other players recorded for the Dawn label, but with a bit less precision, and more in the freer blowing mode of mid 50s sessions on Savoy 50s. Herbie plays both tenor and flute on the date – the former of which is a surprising treat, and really adds an edge to the set! Titles include "Yardbird Suite", "Here's That Mann", "One For Tubby", and "Opicana". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover is nice!)

Blue MitchellSummer Soft ... CD
ABC/Impulse (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
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". CD

Billy Ver Planck with Bill Harris, Phil Woods, etJazz For Playgirls ... LP
Savoy, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
A really smoking little session – the brilliant follow-up to Savoy's well-known Jazz For Playboys album – and arguably a much better record to that one too! Billy's not the best-known leader of the time, but he's working here with a really top-shelf group that includes Bill Harris on trombone, Phil Woods on alto, Seldon Powell on tenor, Eddie Costa on vibes, and Joe Wilder on trumpet – all of whom step out beautifully on the session, and blow with a much freer edge than you'd guess. The tracks are all nicely driving numbers, many of them originals – and Woods and Powell are especially wonderful on the record, and recorded here with a really sublime tone. Includes an excellent version of Horace Silver's "Senor Blues" – plus "Winds", "Du Udah Udah", "Playgirl Stroll", and "Whoo-ee". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam, some splitting on the spine, light wear, and some stains.)

TwennynineTwennynine With Lenny White ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... On July 29, 2015
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

Verve, 1961. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked treat recorded at a time when Verve was briefly exploring the jazz orchestra format in the early 60s – through recordings by Stan Getz, Jimmy Guiffre, and here, Bob Brookmeyer. The record features a set of tracks written and/or arranged by Brookmeyer, with help from contemporaries like Eddie Sauter, Ralph Burns, and Gary McFarland – all of whom were doing similar work for Verve at the time. Players are strong all around – and include Hank Jones, Eddie Costa, Gene Quill, Phil Woods, Nick Travis, Al Cohn, and Phil Bodner – and titles include "Some Of My Best Friends", "Gloomy Sunday", "Where Oh Where", "Days Gone By Oh My", and "Ho Hum".

✨✧ Tal FarlowTal ... LP
Verve, 1956. Used ... Temporarily 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
(True Japanese pressing, not early 80s US import – with insert.)

✨✧ Sal SalvadorShades Of Sal Salvador ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful 50s work from guitarist Sal Salvador – a record that features some great work by Phil Woods on alto sax! Given that Sal often recorded in a small combo mode that usually highlighted his guitar in the lead, the presence of Woods is really a nice surprise here – especially since Phil's at that key early point in his career, when he was playing with a raspy edge that could really add a lot to a session! The players here shift a bit from track to track – and Woods is on 7 of the album's 11 tracks – joined on some of the best by Eddie Bert on trombone and Eddie Costa on vibes. Titles include "Joe & Me", "Carioca", "Delighted", "I've Got A Feelin", "I Hadn't Anyone Til You", and "Took The Spook". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rep pressing – green label with deep groove. Cover is nice, but has a bit of splitting on the top seam.)

✨✧ Sal SalvadorTribute To The Greats ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sal Salvador pays tributes to the jazz greats of his time – Charlie Parker, Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, and others – but also serves things up at a level that's very much his own bag too! The album's got a spare, stripped-down groove that really suits Salvador's guitar well – giving Sal plenty of room to craft these round, warm lines that are full of color and tonal depth – often with a sense of rhythm that makes things groove, even when moving slowly. The group has just the right sort of balance to fit the mood that Sal's going for – with Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, Frank Dallas on bass, and Ronnie Free on drums. Titles include "Manteca", "Ruby My Dear", "Yardbird Suite", "Cool Eyes", "Taps Miller", and "Solos For Guitar". CD

✨✧ Frank SocolowSounds By Socolow ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real lost gem on Bethlehem Records – and one of the few albums to feature this tremendous saxophonist in the lead! Frank Socolow was one of the great unsung reed players of the 50s – and although he lay hidden in some of the larger combos of the early part of the decade, he thankfully got to cut this excellent album as a leader for Bethlehem in the middle part of the decade! The record features a nicely stripped-down combo – with Eddie Bert on trombone, Sal Salvador on guitar, and Eddie Costa on piano – and the overall feel is icy and cool, with distinct touches of Lee Konitz, and a tightly arranged sound which then lets Frank break out strongly against on his solos. Titles include "Miss Finegold", "Little Joe", "Farfel", "Swing Low Sweet Socolow", and "I Love You". One we almost never see on vinyl, either! CD

Verve, 1957. Used 2CD ... 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.
