✨✧ Jesse PowellBlow Man Blow ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hard wailer from tenorist Jesse Powell – a musician who's in the same heavy postwar territory as giants like Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Rusty Bryant, and Willis Jackson – and who, like them, has a nice undercurrent of R&B in his sound! Powell maybe never worked as much in that format as the others, but he's got this rich range on his horn, which is captured here beautifully with a bit of echo on the recording – and set up in a small combo that includes Eddie Williams on trumpet, Oscar Dennard on piano, Peck Morrison on bass, and Wilbur Hogan on drums. The album's got a nice sense of variety, and more depth than just a bunch of tenor-honking cliches – and titles include "Cross On The Green", "Que Paso", "No Tomorrow", "Just Chips", "Love Is Here To Stay", "My Silent Love", "This Is Always", and "Jesse's Theme".

✨✧ Roy Eldridge/Howard McGheeHeat's On ... CD
Esquire/Solid (Japan), 1948/1951. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare work from two American jazz musicians – Roy Eldridge recorded in Sweden, and Howard McGhee recorded in Paris! The Eldridge material is a great showcase for Roy's beautiful sense of tone – and is often recorded with maybe even a bit more edge than some of his American material – with players who include Carl-Henrik Norin on tenor, Charles Norman on piano, and Lennard Sundewall on bass trumpet on most tracks – plus two more with Rolf Berg on guitar and Charles Norman on harpsichord! Roy sings a bit, in that completely charming style of his – and titles include "Schooldays", "Saturday Night Fish Fry", "Echoes Of Harlem", "They Raided The Joint", "Nappin John", "Scottie", and "No Rolling Blues". The Howard McGhee sides are great, and remind us what an important trumpet talent he was in the early years of bop – as he blows both sharply and sweetly, in the company of Jimmy Heath and Jessee Powell on tenor, with Vernon Biddle on piano, Perchy Heath on bass, and Specs Wright on drums. Titles include "Denise", "Nicole", "Punkins", "Etoile", and "Big Will". CD
