✨✧ Herb Ellis & Jimmy GiuffreHerb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Forget every bias you have against Herb Ellis – because this is a heck of a great little record – thanks in no small part to saxophonist Jimmy Giuffre! The style here is in a nice space between Giuffre's earlier work at Capitol and some of the gentler sounds of his later trio sides for Verve and Atlantic – and the lineup features the fuller horn lineup of the post-Four Brothers years, but also makes the instruments step out slowly and spaciously, using Ellis' guitar in a way that's not unlike Jim Hall's sound in Giuffre's later trio. Other players include Bud Shank, Art Pepper, Richie Kamuca, and Jim Hall (on rhythm guitar) – and titles include "A Country Boy", "My Old Flame", "Goose Grease", "You Know", "Remember", and "Patricia".

✨✧ Herb Ellis & Joe PassSeven Come Seven ... CD
Concord, 1973. Used ... $7.99
The Concord label gave guitarist Herb Ellis some of his greatest moments of the 70s – like this early cooker with guitarist Joe Pass – recorded live at the Concord Jazz Festival that gave the label its name! The 1973 performance has both players really opening up – never overwhelming each other, but driving with energy right from the start, then spacing out their own territory strongly on the solos. Backing is from bassist Ray Brown and drummer Jake Hanna – but the record leaves lots of room for guitar throughout – with tones and moments from both players that are a real surprise. Titles include "Seven Come Eleven", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Perdido", "Easy Living", and "Concord Blues". CD

✨✧ Herb EllisNothing But The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title's a bit of a shocker – in that that we don't normally think of Herb as a bluesy player – but it's pretty darn honest, given the great sound of this set! Herb's playing in a really mellow and laidback style for this session – working with Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Ray Brown, and Stan Levey on a set of bluesy tunes that feature his guitar in the lead, working through some magical solos that are far more expressive than on some of his work on other albums from the time. The record's a genuine surprise, and a real lost Verve treasure – as Ellis steps out with a great tone and some nice rootsy solos on tracks that include "Patti Cake", "Blues For Junior", "Blues For Janet", "Pap's Blues", and "Tin Roof Blues".

✨✧ Oscar PetersonHello Herbie – Oscar Peterson Trio With Herb Ellis ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Herb Ellis is reunited with the Oscar Peterson trio – in a sweet set of mellow grooving tunes that stretches nicely beyond their earlier work for Verve! Rhythm is by the team of Sam Jones and Bobby Durham, and the tracks are mostly standards, played with a light and magical touch and that rare ease that Peterson and Ellis always seemed to have in the studio. There's a warmth here that's evident from the very first note – and Herb and Oscar fit together so well, we find ourselves wondering why they ever parted! Titles include "Blues For HG", "Seven Come Eleven", "Exactly Like You", "Naptown Blues", "Hamp's Blues", and "Day By Day". CD

Buddy DeFrancoBuddy DeFranco & The Oscar Peterson Quartet ... CD
Verve/Definitive (Spain), 1954. Used ... $8.99
The original album of lovely clarinet work by Buddy DeFranco –backed by Oscar Peterson's quartet – plus a mammoth bonus number that runs nearly half an hour! The players includes Ray Brown on bass, Herb Ellis on guitar, and Louis Bellson on guitar. The tracks are open-ended, in that swinging Verve style used on the best mid 50s LPs – and while the Peterson group doesn't work in the same soul style of some of DeFranco's recordings with Sonny Clark, they make up for it with their own light touch that helps DeFranco take some chances on his solos! Titles include "Sweet & Lovely", "Fascinating Rhythm", Pick Yourself Up", "Love For Sale", and "Easy To Love". As a bonus track for this edition you get the 23+ minute "Lullaby In Rhythm" – recorded with the same personel plus all star winds Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, Bill Harris and Flip Phillips – with great soloing throughout!

Stan GetzStan Getz & The Oscar Peterson Trio ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used ... $4.99
A great little session – and a meeting that was one of the best things to happen to the Oscar Peterson trio during the 50s! Stan's tone fits perfectly with the group here – and his playing next to the guitar of Herb Ellis recalls many of the fine strengths of the early 50s Getz sides with Jimmy Raney – although somehow coming across with even more depth and imagination here – probably a result of the more sophisticated approach to productions handled by Verve! Peterson's no slouch, either – but Stan's the man who really makes the session sparkle – as you'll hear on tunes that include "Tour's End", "Bronx Blues", "I Was Doing All Right", and "I'm Glad There's You".

Stan Getz & JJ JohnsonStan Getz & JJ Johnson At The Opera House (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1957. Used Gatefold ... $14.99
A strange pairing – but that's sometimes what makes these Verve "pro meets pro" sets from the 50s so great. Getz and Johnson are backed by Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, and Connie Kay – and the tracks are longish, with plenty of solo room in the open jam session mode of the recording. Titles include "Billie's Bounce", "My Funny Valentine", "Crazy Rhythm", and "Blues In The Closet". CD
(Out of print – and includes obi! Very cool pressing – with a gatefold cover that features both variations of the album's cover!)

Barney KesselBarney Kessel – Hoboken, NJ 1980 ... CD
Hi Hat, 1980. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare live performance by guitar great Barney Kessel – recorded for radio at the start of the 80s, and a nicely open sort of performance, with a good contrast to some of Barney's studio work of the time! Kessel mostly works in a trio with Bob Magnuson on bass and Sherman Ferguson on drums – although Herb Ellis joins on guitar for one track – and the tunes are nice and long, often shifting the melody in the middle – with these long runs by Kessel in a mix of raspy plucked passages and warmer chromatic hues! Titles include "Wave/I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face", "Brazil/Manha De Carnival", and "Body & Soul" – the last of which also features Herb Ellis on guitar. CD

✨✧ Oscar PetersonOn The Town With The Oscar Peterson Trio (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Piano, guitar, and bass – all moving along at an almost effortless pace – and a perfect model of the fluid Oscar Peterson sound of the mid 50s! There's a lightly grooving, almost-singing quality to most of the tunes on the set – that ringing Peterson piano sound meeting up with the guitar of Herb Ellis and the warmer bass of Ray Brown – all moving perfectly together in an exploration of a number of familiar tunes. At times, some bluesier modes come into play – but never in a way that's too forced or hokey – and titles include "The Champ", "Easy Listenin' Blues", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Should I", and "When Lights Are Low".

✨✧ Oscar PetersonWith Respect To Nat (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Limelight/Universal (Japan), 1965. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Oscar Peterson pays tribute to the late Nat King Cole – not only on piano, but also with a bit of vocals as well! Given how rarely Oscar sings on record, the album's a real treat – especially as his vocals capture the spirit of Cole surprisingly well – not exactly like Nat, but with the same mix of soul, swing, and class! Half the album features Peterson in trio formation – with Herb Ellis on guitar and Ray Brown on bass – in a way that recreates the King Cole Trio sound. Other tracks feature fuller backings from Manny Albam – nice and jazzy, in the style that Nat used during the 50s at Capitol! Titles are all Cole favorites – and include "Little Girl", "Unforgettable", "What Can I Say After I Say I'm Sorry", "Easy Listening Blues", "Walkin My Baby Back Home", and "It's Only A Paper Moon". CD
(Out of print, 2008 SHM-CD pressing. Includes obi and a great gatefold cover – done just like the original Limelight album, with a textured cover and special booklet inside!)

✨✧ Herbie Mann & Chick CoreaComplete Latin Band Sessions (Monday Night At The Village Gate/Standing Ovation At Newport/Latin Mann/Roar Of The Greaspaint) ... CD
Atlantic/Gambit (Spain), 1965. Used 2CD ... $16.99
Pure genius from Herbie Mann's mid 60s years – a set that features mostly Latin grooves overall, and some great early piano from a young Chick Corea! First up is Monday Night At The Village Gate – an album that has a hard Latin feel throughout, thanks to an ultra-hip group that includes Chick Corea on piano, Dave Pike on vibes, Mark Weinstein on trombone, and Bruno Carr on drums – plus some crackling work on congas from the legendary Carlos Patato Valdes! Tracks are long, and awash in great solos, especially from Herbie, who seems to play harder here than ever. Titles include "You're Gonna Make It With Me", "Away From The Crowd", "In Escambrun", and "The Young Turks". Next is Standing Ovation At Newport – one of the few to feature Mann in the company of pianist Chick Corea – who steps out here with some hard, soulful, Latin-inflected energy that's totally great – and which really makes the group cook. Other players include Dave Pike on vibes and Patato Valdes on congas – and the great Ben Tucker joins the group on an extremely popular 10 minute version of his composition "Comin Home Baby", one of Herbie's all-time hits. Other tracks are equally long and jazzy – and titles include "Mushi Mushi" and "Patato". After that is Latin Mann, a rare Columbia Records outing from Herbie – but it's easily one of his greatest of the 60s, thanks to some really smoking arrangements from Oliver Nelson – plus an all-star cast of players that includes Carmell Jones, Dave Pike, Jimmy Heath, Patato Valdez, Willie Bobo, Charlie Palmieri, and a young Chick Corea on piano! Tracks are short, tight, and very rhythmic – grooving in a snapping approach to Latin that's filled with plenty of soul, but which also features plenty of jazzy touches as well. A few tunes here are familiar, but they're given wonderful new treatment by Herbie and Nelson – and the record easily beats most Verve or Impulse sessions of this type at their own game! Tracks include "Bijou", "Ave Maria Morena", "Watermelon Man", "Interlude", "Let's Boom Chitty Boom", "Senor Blues", "Jungle Fantasy", and "Jive Samba". The CD's completed with 7 more tracks from the album The Roar Of The Greasepaint – a surprisingly great album from Herbie Mann – especially considering that it's based around a Broadway score! Don't let that aspect fool you, though, because the groove's all Latin all the way through – as most numbers feature Chick Corea on piano, stepping out nice and hard in a lineup that also includes Mark Weinstein on trombone and Dave Pike on vibes. Tracks are arranged by Ray Ellis, but with a much freer groove than usual – much more Mann-styled overall – and titles include "The Joker", "Who Can I Turn To", "Look At That Face", and "Feeling Good".
