Eddie CostaEddie Costa Quintet (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mode/VAP (Japan), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An extremely great album from Eddie Costa – one of the best of the all-great Mode sessions 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

Eddie CostaHouse Of Blue Lights ... CD
Dot/MCA (Japan), 1959. Used ... $11.99
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

Eddie Costa/Mat Mathews/Don ElliottEddie Costa Trio With Rolf Kuhn & Dick Johnson/Mat Mathews & Don Elliott At Newport ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the most modern performances from Verve's recording of the 1957 Newport Festival – and one of the most obscure, too! Side one features a hip trio with Eddie Costa on piano, plus Rolf Kuhn on clarinet and Dick Johnson on alto – both unusual horn players to feature with Eddie! Side two features three tracks by the Mat Mathews quartet with Hank Jones on piano – and three more by an unusual group that has Don Elliott on mellophone and vibes, with Bill Evans on piano!

Bill Evans & Eddie CostaComplete Quartet Recordings (Guys & Dolls Love Vibes, plus more) ... CD
Decca/Lonehill (Spain), 1958. Used ... $14.99
An unusual repackaging of the Decca album Guys & Dolls Love Vibes – originally issued under Eddie Costa's name as the leader, and presented here with a bonus track by the same pairing of Costa and Evans! If you're put off by showtune-oriented jazz sessions, forget the theme of this one and just open your ears – because the album's a lot hipper than you'd expect! Sure, it's one of those "jazz meets Broadway" albums (in this case, tunes from Guys & Dolls), but the group's a sharply modern one – and features the vibes of Eddie Costa in a quintet that includes Bill Evans, Wendell Marshall, and Paul Motian. The Evans/Motian axis is especially strong, and frees the tracks from their usual readings – bringing Costa into territory that he rarely hits on record again for years. Titles include "Adelaide", "Guys & Dolls", "If I Were A Bell", "I'll Know", and "Luck Be A Lady". The bonus track is "Django", performed by a group that includes Evans & Costa, from the Michel Legrand Legrand Jazz sessions in 1958. CD

Clark Terry/Coleman HawkinsEddie Costa – Memorial Concert ... CD
Colpix (Japan), 1962. Used ... $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". CD

✨✧ Mike CuozzoMike Cuozzo With The Costa Burke Trio ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... 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". CD

Verve, 1961. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $12.99
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".

Chris ConnorJazz Date With Chris Connor (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1956. Used ... $9.99
They got the "jazz date" right in the title on this one – as Chris Connor works here with some exceptional small combo backing – all in a mode that almost takes her back to the earliest sound of her first few records on Bethlehem! Ralph Sharon's the maestro here – handling all the arrangements for a few small combos with players who include Oscar Pettiford on bass, Sam Most on flute, Eddie Costa on vibes, Joe Puma on guitar, and Lucky Thompson and Al Cohn on tenor – all modern-minded players who turn out to be a really great fit for Connor on the date. A few numbers even feature added Latin percussion from Mongo Santamaria – and titles include "All I Need Is You", "Driftwood", "Fancy Free", "It Only Happens When I Dance With You", and "Lonely Town". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Misty" and "Senor Blues". CD

Coleman HawkinsHawk Swings (Crown pressing) ... LP
Crown, 1960. Sealed ... $14.99
Massive later music from Coleman Hawkins – a date that might be easy to overlook, given the unassuming package – but one that really features that newfound mix of modernism and soul that graced the later years of Hawk! The setting is a bit unusual, but that's part of the charm – as Hawkins' tenor comes into play with the trumpet of Thad Jones, piano and vibes of Eddie Costa, bass of George Duvivier, and drums of Osie Johnson – a group who are mostly easygoing, and really let Coleman take the lead – although Jones gets in a few great moments too! Titles include "Cloudy", "Almost Dawn", "Stake Out", "Cross Town", and "Shadows". LP, Vinyl record album

Mundell LoweBlues For A Stripper (aka Satan In High Heels) ... CD
Charlie Parker/Modern Harmonic, 1962. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
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! CD

Herbie MannFlute Flight ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Good+ ... $11.99
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

✨✧ Shelly Manne2 3 4 ... LP
Impulse, Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A surprisingly great Shelly Manne album from the early 60s – one that follows a format that has Shelly playing in duo format ("2"), trio ("3"), and quartet ("4") – hence the title! The duo track is incredible – a spare duet with Coleman Hawkins called "Me & Some Drums" – improvised between Manne and Hawkins, stretching for 6 minutes, with a sound that's a high point in the career of both players! The trio work features Shelly with Eddie Costa on vibes and piano and George Duvivier on bass – and the quartet sides bring Hawkins back, alongside Hank Jones' piano and more bass by Duvivier. The whole thing's great – as much for Hawkins as it is for Manne – and titles include "The Sicks Of Us", "Slowly", "Take The A Train", "Lean On Me", and "Me & Some Drums". LP, Vinyl record album

How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, a very swingin' instrumental version of the score to this goofy musical, arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland, with a batch of players like Clark Terry, Oliver Nelson, Phil Woods, and Joe Newman – so you know the whole thing's tight and groovy. Includes nice renditions of "Grand Old Ivy", "Happy To Keep His Dinner Warm", and "Paris Original".

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".

Mellow modernism from Joe Puma – one of those guitarists who appeared on countless 50s sessions, then really seemed to disappear from records as the 60s wore on. This album's one of Puma's best – an easily swinging session that flows with warm group interplay, and which never seems to get bogged down in the traps that sometimes plagued sessions of this nature. Side one features a trio with Puma on guitar, Eddie Costa on vibes, and Oscar Pettiford on bass – a very good choice to accompany the other two – and side two features Puma and Pettiford, plus Bill Evans on piano and Paul Motian on drums. Titles include "Mother Of Earl", "Stablemates", "Ubas", and "Blues For Midge". CD

Betty RocheTake The A Train (2nd cover) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... $1.99
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".

GM, 1962/1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the most striking Eric Dolphy work we've ever heard – a set of live performances from the years 1962 and 1963 that feature Dolphy in a free-thinking mode that surpasses even the modernism of his classic studio sides! The recordings feature Dolphy amidst a variety of players – including a number of unlikely suspects like Barry Galbraith, Eddie Costa, and Jim Hall – and although some of the tracks have a moody and introspective third stream quality (3 of the numbers are written by Gunther Schuller), others are quite open, and almost have an ESP-like intensity. One longer title is a jam session take on Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee" – recorded with a lineup that includes Phil Woods, Nick Travis, Benny Golson, Don Ellis, and Lalo Schifrin! Other titles include "Iron Man", "Half Note Triplets", "Densities", and "Night Music". CD

The album was issued in 1975, and features the release of an obscure after-hours set that guitarist Farlow recorded in 1956 with Eddie Costa on piano and Vinnie Burke on bass. The trio grooves along in a wonderful way, very open-ended, which brings out a whole new side of Farlow's soloing style.

Like the first volume, this one's got a wonderfully easy feel – and even though the material wasn't issued until the 70s, it's a key part of Farlow's 50s catalog, as it's got him soloing long and free, really working his magical tone into a frenzy! Tracks are all quite long, and titles include "All The Things You Are", "Let's Do It", and "Yesterdays". LP, Vinyl record album

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". CD

Apart from the tenor of Zoot Sims and alto of Phil Woods, the record also features flute and alto from Jerry Dodgion, trombone from Willie Dennis, trumpets from Markie Markowitz and Jimmy Maxwell, and piano from Eddie Costa – and the set features arrangements from Al Cohn on tracks that hit the 5 minute range – tight at the top, with breakaway solos, as you might hear during some of the Cohn/Sims sides for RCA during the 50s!

The set includes vibes from Eddie Costa, trumpet from Lou Mucci, bass from George Duvivier, guitars from Barry Galbraith and Bucky Pizzarelli, percussion from Phil Kraus, and a whole lot of great reeds from Phil Bodner – on a set of original titles that include "State's Evidence", "Third Degree", "We The Jury", "Prison Break", "Stool Pigeon", and "Bad Day In Brooklyn" CD
