Jesse PowellBlow Man Blow ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy ... About February 22, 2017
A great little album of heavy tenor blowing – featuring Jesse Powell as the main soloist, with a group that includes Eddie Williams on trumpet, Oscar Dennard on piano, Peck Morrison on bass, and Wilbur Hogan on drums. The title gives away the game – as Jesse's lusty soulful style is right out front, carving lines of rich sound and texture, in a style that should have made him a bigger player in the heavy tenor game. Titles include "Cross On The Green", "Que Paso", "No Tomorrow", "Just Chips", and "Jesse's Theme". CD

Roy Eldridge/Howard McGheeHeat's On ... CD
Esquire/Solid (Japan), 1948/1951. New Copy ... $15.99
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
