Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic In Europe (2LP) ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
2 nice live sets – put together by Norm Granz, as a tour of the JATP all stars in Europe. Originally issued separately, but pretty much under the same title, the first LP brings together the hottest jazz stars of the day, and on this volume it includes Dizzy Gillespie, Cannonball Adderley, JJ Johnson, Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge. There's a great jamming take on "Bernie's Tune" and a sidelong riffing version of "All The Things You Are", plus "Swedish Jam". The second album was issued ostensibly as a Dizzy Gillespie performance, but with like the first features some very strong guest stars! The core of the group is Diz's great one from the early 60s – with Lalo Schifrin on piano and Leo Wright on alto and flute, and they're joined by Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, and Candido for this tasty set of three long tracks: "Kush", "The Mooch" and "Wheatleigh Hall". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ella Fitzgerald & Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic – The Ella Fitzgerald Set ... CD
Verve, 1949/1954. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

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 ... About March 22, 2017
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

Gene Krupa & Buddy RichDrum Battle At JATP ... CD
Verve, 1952. Used ... $0.99
A pretty darn great album – with a wonderful mix of JATP swing and strong-handed drumming by the leaders. The material was recorded at a Jazz At The Philharmonic show at Carnegie Hall in 1952, and although the main focus appears to be Krupa and Rich's drum work, there's actually some fantastic sax playing on the album – from both the alto of Willie Smith and the tenor of Flip Phillips, both of whom are at the height of their powers in this relaxed setting, working amazingly well around the bombastic drum pounding of Krupa and Rich. Tracks are long, and titles include "Idaho", "Flying Home", "Drum Boogie", "Drum Battle", and "Perdido". CD

✨✧ Birdland All StarsBirdland All Stars Live At Carnegie Hall ... CD
Roulette, 1954. Used 2 CDs ... 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.

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

VariousComplete Norman Granz Jam Sessions (5CD Box Set) ... CD
Verve, Early/Mid 50s. Used 5 CDs ... $42.99
An incredible document of a key genre in 50s jazz on record – the jam session tradition, recorded beautifully for Verve records by the legendary Norman Granz! The idea of a jam session was nothing new at the time, of course, but it was mostly a live phenomenon – known to players from concerts and club dates, or presented on vinyl by Granz, in his celebrated Jazz At The Philharmonic sessions. These dates mark a move into the studio by Granz – one that captures the same sort of energy and unique pairings of musicians that went down in the live sessions, with the added benefit of studio technology to make the work sound even clearer, and more intimate. The 5CD set brings together all 9 Jam Session albums – packaged beautifully in a slipcase with original album cover art, and a full 72 page booklet on the musicians, sessions, and titles included. Players include nearly everyone who might have worked for Verve in the 50s – Benny Carter, Charlie Parker, Johnny Hodges, Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Buddy DeFranco, and countless others – and titles include "Jam Blues", "Funky Blues", "Apple Jam", "Blues For The Count", "Jamming For Clef", "Rose Room", "Blue Lou", and "Lullaby In Rhythm" – all in very long versions!

✨✧ VariousEscape In Time – Popular British Television Themes Of The 60s ... CD
El (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just the usual collection of famous British TV themes from the 60s – as this set offers up some great rare nuggets, unusual versions, and some obscure tracks that are all pretty darn fresh to our American years! As you well know if you're a fan of anything pop culture from this generation, British TV was way hipper than most of the American small screen in the 60s – from the stories, to the settings, to the wonderfully cool themes and backing music that supported the show – often a cool hybrid of postwar Soho jazz modes and lots of the best soundtrack/sound library styles that were evolving in the hands of an elite few on the London scene. Some of the best and grooviest of that generation are presented here – in an overstuffed collection that includes "Gurney Slade" by Max Harris, "Danger Man" by Red Price Combo, "The Avenger" by Johnny Dankworth, "Tuesday Rendezvous" by Bert Weedon, "Face To Face" by Frank Chacksfield, "Comedy Playhouse" by Ron Grainer, "What The Papers Say" by London Philharmonic, "Monty Python's Flying Circus" by Eastman Wind Ensemble, "The Saint" by Les Reed, "Fireball" by Don Spencer, "Z Cars" by Johnny Keating, and a number of tracks from The Prisoner too!
