Ella Fitzgerald & Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic – The Ella Fitzgerald Set ... CD
Verve, 1949/1954. Used ... $9.99
Ella Fitzgerald at the height of her powers – heard here on a set of Jazz At The Philharmonic recordings that feature the singer really stretching out in a small group setting! The tracks are all live, and not only feature Fitzgerald charming the crowd with her presence, but also effortlessly hitting the kind of perfect phrasing and timing she always does so well in the studio – maybe even more striking here, given the occasional unbridled energy of the audience. Players include Hank Jones on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich or JC Heard on drums – and the recordings also feature some contributions from Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Charlie Parker on alto, and Lester Young and Flip Phillips on tenor. Tracks come from 1949, 1953, and 1954 JATP performances – and titles include "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Hernando's Hideaway", "Later", "Perdido", "Somebody Loves Me", "Robbin's Nest", "A New Shade Of Blues", "Old Mother Hubbard", "Flying Home", "Oh Lady Be Good", "How High The Moon", "Why Don't You Do Right", and "Bill".

Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic Vol 3 ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good ... $23.99
Ostensibly, this is material recorded at the first JATP concert given by Norman Granz in 1944 – with players that include Illinois Jacquet, JJ Johnson, Nat King Cole, Shorty Sherock, Lee Young, Jack McVea, and Les Paul. The odd lineup makes for a nice change from the usual heavy saxes in front mode – and it's especially nice to hear Cole and Paul in such a setting. Titles include "Body & Soul", "Blues", "Lester Leaps In", and "Rosetta". In a nice David Stone Martin cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy Clef label pressing, with deep groove! Cover has some light wear, but is nice overall – no splits.)

2 hard-wailing jam session numbers from the JATP series – both featuring tremendous tenor work from Illinois Jacquet and Jack McVea, plus trombone from JJ Johnson and a bit of guitar from Les Paul!

Art Blakey/Georges Arvanitas/JATPJazz In Paris – Jazz Et Cinema Vol 2 – Des Femmes Disparaissent/Les Tricheurs/La Bride Sur Le Cou ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1958/1961. New Copy ... $13.99
Three great French jazz soundtracks on one CD! The bulk of the set is taken up with Art Blakey's wornderful score to the film Des Femmes Disparaissent – which features work by Jazz Messengers Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons, and Benny Golson, recorded in Paris in 1958, with a hip swinging hardbop sound. These tracks make up 17 titles on the CD – with songs that include "Mambo Dans La Voiture", "Merlin", "Tom", "Nasol", and "Blues Pour Vava", plus a few solo drum tracks that are really great! 4 more tracks are from the rare ep-only soundtrack to Les Tricheurs – played by a Jazz At The Philharmonic group that includes Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson, Coleman Hawkins, and Roy Eldridge. Tracks on those numbers include "Les Tricheurs", "Phil's Tune", and "Mic's Jump". The last 2 tracks on the CD – "La Bride Sur Le Cou" and "Brigitte Strip Blues" – are by a quintet led by pianist Georges Arvanitas, and featuring trumpet by Bernard Vitet and tenor by Francois Jenneau. Very hip stuff all around – and a real treat for fans of jazz and film alike! CD

✨✧ Charlie Parker, Sarah Vaughan, Count Basie, etcBirdland All Stars At Carnegie Hall ... LP
Roulette, 1954. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A smoking set of all-star performances – recorded at Carnegie Hall in 1954, and with a sense of tremendous talent that may well blow away some of the Jazz At The Philharmonic sets of the time! The material here is heavy on Count Basie performances – excellent material from that period when he was really hitting full power again on Verve – with strong solos from Frank Foster and Frank Wess on reeds, plus work from Joe Newman on trumpet! Lester Young's tenor also joins Basie's group at one point – and Sarah Vaughan sings with the group too – but the set also features some more Verve-like performances – from Charlie Parker on alto, and Billie Holiday on vocals, who gets almost one side of the record to herself. There's a huge amount of material on the double-length set – and titles include "My Funny Valentine", "Cool Blues", and "The Song Is You" by Charlie Parker; "Them There Eyes", "My Man", and "Lover Man" by Billie Holiday; "Saturday", "Time", "That Old Devil Moon", and "Don't Blame Me" by Sarah Vaughan; and "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Sure Thing", "Perdido", "Blues Backstage", and "You For Me" by Count Basie.

✨✧ Sarah VaughanLive At The 1971 Monterey Jazz Festival ... CD
Monterey Jazz Festival/Concord, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A warm, wonderful set by Sarah Vaughan – and a later one, closing the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1971 – released for the first time ever! Sarah is backed for most of the set by the trio of Billy Mays on piano, Bob Magnusson on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums – with Sarah managing to both portray heavy emotion and mood and also an easygoing, playful charm – joking with the audience and obviously having a wonderful time. Very nice! Includes the Norman Granz intro, plus "I Remember You", "The Lamp Is Low", "'Round Midnight", "There Will Never Be Another You", "And I Love Him", "Scattin' The Blues", and "Tenderly" – plus a 14 plus minute jam with the Jazz At The Philharmonic All-Stars – Bill Harris, Roy Eldridge, Clark Terry, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Benny Carter and others!

Bobby Hutcherson with Eugene McDanielsNow! (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1969/1977. Used ... $24.99
Incredibly righteous work from Bobby Hutcherson – a rare Blue Note session that features vocals by Eugene McDaniels! The set was recorded right before McDaniels' groundbreaking Headless Heroes album, but it's got a similar sort of vibe – breaking down genres and musical expectations – and reaching forth with a powerful progressive sound that's beyond compare! All tracks feature lead vocals by Eugene McDaniels, supported by a small chorus of backing singers – in a mode that's a bit like some of the Eddie Gale work on Blue Note at the time – all topped off with some great instrumental work by a core combo that features Hutcherson on vibes, Harold Land on tenor, Wally Richardson on guitar, and Joe Chambers on drums. Imagine the greatness of the Hutcherson/Land group, but with the added bonus of a spiritual soul jazz vocal aspect – and you've really got a key picture of this one! Like the best work on Strata East, but recorded years before – and featuring the titles "Now", "Slow Change", "Black Heroes", "The Creators", and "Hello to the Wind". And, as if that wasn't enough, this CD features 4 bonus tracks from the Blue Note Meets The LA Philharmonic album from 1977 – featuring new recordings of tracks from the album – without vocals, but with some larger orchestral backings that take the tunes just as far! Bonus titles include "Slow Change", "Now", and "Hello To The Wind" – done in versions that really complement the originals nicely! CD

VariousNorman Granz Jam Session – Vol 1 ... LP
Verve, 1952. Fair ... $2.99
The first album to carry the Jazz At The Philharmonic formula into the studio – and a record that virtually coined the term "jam session" for 50s jazz! Norman Granz repeats the style he'd done so well in a live setting – and brings together a host of all-star players in a very relaxed, open environment – one that gives them all plenty of space to open up and hit some nice long solos. Players include Charlie Parker, Johnny Hodges, and Benny Carter in a three-alto frontline, plus Flip Phillips and Ben Webster on tenor, Barney Kessel on guitar, Oscar Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and JC Heard on drums. Side one features the original "Jam Blues", and side two features a "Ballad Medley", with each solo star taking one of the tunes in the set. LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: FAIR CONDITION. Light blue label Mercury pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear & splitting. Vinyl plays with numerous clicks & crackles.)

✨✧ Flip PhillipsYour Place Or Mine ... CD
Jump, 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the few post-Verve albums ever recorded by tenorist Flip Phillips – and also one of his most unique as well! The early 60s date has a very unusual format – just Flip on tenor and a bit of bass clarinet, blowing beautifully alongside the guitar of Dell Staton, who also plays a bass foot organ attachment – creating a very subtle sense of rhythm at times, but mostly letting the sound of the album hang nicely between the tenor and guitar! Given that Flip was often in a much more full-on setting before – he was one of the stars of Verve's Jazz At The Philharmonic recordings – the approach of the album is a really nice change, and lets us hear a whole different side of his tenor talents, without any piano or drums. The bass clarinet work is quite nice too – although only featured on three of the album's thirteen tracks – and titles include "Ja Da", "Summertime", "Nuages", "Gone With The Wind", "With Someone New", and "Come Rain Or Come Shine".

✨✧ BerioSinfonia – Swingle Singers/Berio/NY Philharmonic ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The original recording of Berio's dark vocal piece Sinfonia, and one of the pivotal moments when the Swingle Singers switched from doing jazzy versions of classical tunes to work that was more avant garde. Their high level of talent is apparent in this recording, and they give Berio's work a nice haunting sound, with a feel that's even spookier because you sort of recognize them as a pop group, but one that's gone a little crazy here. Cool stuff, and with a good set of notes. LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a tape along the seams and rips outside and inside the gatefold from the removal of old stickers.)
