Johnny LytleHappy Ground! (Jazzland LP – 1961) ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good ... $11.99
A killer set of grooves from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – one of the first and one of the few to ever combine vibes with Hammond organ – in this case, the work of Milt Harris on the keys! The group is a very rhythmic trio, thanks to Harris on the bass pedals, and Penny Hinant on the drums – and titles include the great "Lela", a jazz dance classic if there ever was one – and a precursor to some of Lytle's work to come on the Tuba label. Other tracks include "Secret Love", "Happy Ground", "It's All Right With Me", and "Tag Along". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Riverside pressing, RM 470, with microphone logo and deep groove. Cover has a half split top seam, mostly split bottom seam, and some light stains on back.)

Kenny DorhamKenny Dorham & Friends (blue cover) ... LP
Jazzland, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $39.99
Not to be confused with the Kenny Dorham album of the same name – this set features three tracks from a date with Kenny on trumpet but led by Ernie Henry on alto – "I Should Care", "Active Ingredients", and "Cleo's Chant" – plus four more by a Dorham-led date with Ernie Henry – "I'll Be Seeing You", "Noose Bloos", "Jazz Classic", and "The End Of A Love Affair". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label Jazzland pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split spine, center split bottom seam with staining and a taped top seam. Vinyl plays with a short click on "Noose Bloos".)

Joe HarriottSouthern Horizons ... LP
Jazzland/Down At Dawn (Italy), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Excellent! This record is one of the lost chapters in the career of the great British alto player Joe Harriott. The session was recorded before Joe's experimental "Abstract" release, and way before his "Indo Jazz Fusions" experiments – but it's still an excellent session of off-kilter bop that shows what a keen talent Joe was on the alto. He's playing here in the company of the great Shake Keane on trumpet – another fellow West Indian expatriate who was living in London – along with Coleridge Goode on bass, Harry South on piano, and Bobby Orr on drums – plus some bonus from Frank Holder on a few tracks, which sound mighty nice. The session was probably released in the UK, but this US issue is the only time we ever seem to see it – and it's not a record that shows up often. Tracks include "Liggin", "Caravan", "Senor Blues", "Count Twelve", and "Southern Horizons". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Clifford Jordan & Sonny RedStory Tale ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A brilliant collaboration between Clifford Jordan and Sonny Red! At the time of this recording, Jordan was one of a number of firey young tenor players from Chicago – all of them hard-blowing, with a nice soulful bottom that opened up a bop sound to more moods and emotions – but Jordan stood apart from most of them with an approach that was decidedly more complex and forward-thinking. As you'll hear on the album's tracks, he wasn't content enough to just blow off a riff – but had to twist things up a bit, working a tune for more shades and colors than it might yield with another player, pushing on the proceedings with an edge that works especially well for Red, who opens up here more than he does on some of his other sides from the time. Red's tone is excellent – a sharper one next to Jordan's more supple blowing – and the pair are a perfect team to lead off tunes like "Prints", "Hip Pockets", "A Story Tale", and "Defiance".

Johnny LytleNice & Easy ... LP
Jazzland, 1962. Very Good ... $11.99
An unusual record for vibist Johnny Lytle – one that has him breaking from his usual trio formation, to work in a super-tight lineup that includes some soul jazz heavyweights! The sound's quite different than Lytle's usual mix of organ and vibes, but still pretty darn great – thanks to a group that includes Bobby Timmons on piano, Johnny Griffin on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. Johnny's vibes are out front in the mix – leaping around some really inventive grooves that have a rollicking early 60s soul jazz approach – and titles include "Soul Time", "322-Wow!", "Coroner's Blues", and "That's All". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label Bill Grauer Productions Inc pressing. Cover has some wear and aging.)

✨✧ Tadd DameronClassics Of Modern Jazz Vol 3 – The Tadd Dameron Band ... LP
Jazzland, Late 40s/1962. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very sharp LP issue of some of the legendary late 40's bop recordings that were cut in New York under the leadership of Tadd Dameron! The groups are all pretty darn smoking, and the record features some classic work by Fats Navarro on trumpet, Allan Eager on tenor, Milt Jackson on vibes, and Kenny Clarke on drums. Tracks are longer than the usual 3-minute bop side, and titles include "Wahoo", "Good Bait", "Tiny's Blues", and "Symphonette". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label Jazzland pressing with deep groove. Cover has ring and edge wear, a split top seam, a center split in the bottom seam, and a peeled spot and some remnants from sticker removal on front.)

✨✧ Red GarlandBright & Breezy ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bright, breezy, and plenty darn soulful – a nice little post-Prestige album that almost has Red Garland returning to the piano with the tightest focus of his earlier years! The trio here features Sam Jones on bass and Charlie Persip on drums – both of whom punctuate the groove with the same sense as Red's classic trio – and who seem to inspire him to some even more punched-up lines on the set. The style's a bit like that with which Oscar Peterson was winning the crowds at the time – but Red's still got plenty of that old Garland emotion in the mix as well. Titles include a nice longish take on "Lil Darlin", plus the tracks "On Green Dolphin Street", "Blues In The Closet", "So Sorry Please", and "What's New". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange and black label Jazzland pressing! Cover has light wear and a split spine, vinyl has a small click on one track.)

✨✧ Harold LandWest Coast Blues! ... LP
Jazzland, 1960. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from Harold Land, and a great set that has a hard soul jazz feel – despite the "west coast" in the title. Harold's playing with a great group that includes Barry Harris, Joe Gordon, and Sam Jones – as well as guitarist Wes Montgomery, who's work on the session really gives it a soulful edge! The cover lists the rhythm section as "all-soul", and it's right, as the accompaniment for Harold here is more sensitive, and more swinging than on most of his other records. The set sparkles with brilliance, and with great relaxed soulful playing. Cuts include "Compulsion", "Ursula", "Terrain", "Klactoveedsedstene", and "West Coast Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing, still in the shrink with review sticker.)

✨✧ JJ JohnsonProof Positive ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Positive proof that JJ Johnson's one of the greatest trombone players ever – a sublime quartet session for Impulse Records, and one that features some of his most striking, stripped-down work of the 60s! The focus here is really on Johnson's amazing tone and timing – but the record also benefits greatly by a soulful rhythm trio that includes the mighty Harold Mabern on piano, Arthur Harper on bass, and Frank Gant on drums – all free-thinking cats who are never too stiff with their swing, and really match JJ's fluid sense of energy on the record. The whole thing's brilliant – filled with well-chosen tunes and some sublime performances by all players – and cuts include a 10 minute version of Miles Davis' "Neo", plus "Minor Blues", "Stella By Starlight", "Lullaby Of Jazzland", and "Blues Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo rainbow label pressing. Cover has some bubbles in the gloss.)
