✨✧ Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
Oscar Peterson's trio is augmented here by a famous guest – trumpeter Clark Terry, whose horn adds a nice bit of punctuation to the set, and makes the record a strong standout in the 60s catalogs of both players! The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising fame at the time merges nicely with the popularity of the Peterson group – and since both players share a talent for mixing earthy moments with tighter playing, the whole thing comes off pretty darn nicely! Peterson's piano is supported by rhythm work from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and Terry not only plays trumpet and flugelhorn, but also vocalizes a slight bit too – sometimes at the same point he's playing his horn! Titles include "Mumbles", "Mack The Knife", "Jim", "Blues For Smedley", "Brotherhood Of Man", and "Incoherent Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersVirgo Red ... LP
Polydor, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great little album from Roy Ayers – a very funky record that's almost all instrumental all the way through! The sound is a bit in the vein of Roy's Live At Montreux set – but funkier overall, thanks to some very heavy rhythms on the bottom – and an approach to the tunes that's short, tight, and very much on the money! In addition to Roy's great vibes, the set also features Harry Whitaker on electric piano, Jimmy Owens and Cecil Bridgewater on trumpets, Garnett Brown on trombone, and Dennis Davis on drums and percussion – all very hip players who really help Roy find the mix of jazz and funk he was going for at the time. Dee Dee Bridgewater sings a bit of vocals on the record, joining Roy on the sublime spiritual track "Love From The Sun" – but most other tracks on the album have a more instrumental approach. The record includes a great remake of Leroy Hutson's track "Giving Love", sung more famously by Voices of East Harlem, and it's also got a nice funky cover of the hit "Brother Louie" – plus the tracks "The Morning After", "Des Nude Soul", "Virgo Red", "Love From The Sun", and "I Am Your Mind".

Clifford BrownBrownie Speaks – The Blue Note Albums (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note, Early 50s. Used 3CD ... $21.99
Seminal work from one of the greatest trumpeters of the 20th Century – and a musician who helped his instrument find a whole new voice in jazz during his short time on this planet! The set brings together all of Clifford Brown's classic work for Blue Note, but in their original format – the selection of 10" albums that came out in the early 50s, and opened up countless ears to his style on the trumpet – a mode that could be incredibly hard biting at times, but also soulful and sweet as well – balanced beautifully amidst the different settings offered here. Each set of tracks recaptures the original 10" track selection, with alternates or rare tracks added only at the end – and the package features all the material from the 10" albums Jay Jay Johnson With Clifford Brown, New Faces New Sounds, New Star On The Horizon, and all volumes of A Night At Birdland With Art Blakey Quintet. Musicians include Gigi Gryce on alto and flute, Jimmy Heath on tenor, JJ Johnson on trombone, Lou Donaldson on alto, Charlie Rouse on tenor, Horace Silver or Elmo Hope on piano, and Art Blakey, Philly Joe Jones, and Kenny Clarke on drums. 42 tracks, in a hardcover book-style package with lots of images and notes!

Brownout Presents – Brown SabbathBrownout Presents – Brown Sabbath ... CD
Ubiquity, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A funky riff on some of the mightiest slabs in the Black Sabbath oeuvre – done up masterfully by Adrian Quesada and the Brownout collective! Where the Sabbath originals are all lumbering menace and sludgy rhythms, Brownout brings in Latin funk percussion, tripped out keyboard textures and some really great horn arrangements. They move raw slabs like "Iron Man" into surprising, instrumental percussion realms we'd never imagine them, and it's pretty amazing! "The Wizard" and "NIB" feature vocals by Alex Marrero, "Hand Of Doom" features Alex Maas", and "Planet Caravan" has vocals by David Jimenez – and other tracks include "Iron Man", "Black Sabbath" and "Into The Void".

✨✧ ChallengersSurfing With The Challengers (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Vault/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Great sounds from The Challengers – one of the coolest, tightest instrumental groups on the Cali scene of the surf years – so instrumentally sharp that all of the individual members get named on the back cover – in the style of a jazz album! Drummer Richard Delvy heads up the group – and the lineup also features mighty great lead guitar from Glenn Gray, plus organ and piano from Jim Roberts, rhythm guitar from Don Landis, tenor from Nick Hefner, and just the right sorf of heavy basslines from Randy Hauert. There's a slight bit of vocals on the record, but most of the set is instrumental – and in addition to an endorsement from LA producer Lloyd Thaxton in the title, the set also features work from surf cinematographer Bruce Brown on the cover too. Titles include a great surf remake of "Comin Home Baby" – plus "Moondawg", "So What", "Satan's Theme", "Tidal Wave", "The Twomp", and "Surfer's Pony". CD features two bonus tracks – "Moon Dawg" and "Out Of Limits". CD

Lou DonaldsonSay It Loud! ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $28.99
One of the greatest Blue Note funky jazz sets of the late 60s – an all-out soul fest headed up by funky Lou Donaldson, and featuring some incredible work on drums from Idris Muhammad – who was still calling himself Leo Morris at this point! Muhammad's work on the drums is fantastic – not just in the snap-funk mode of some of his oft-sampled Blue Note classics, but also hitting these nicely changed-up rhythms that dance along with a free sense of joy, love, and life – one that seems to open Lou up even more than before! Other players on the set are great too – and include a young Charles Earland on organ, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, and Jimmy Ponder on guitar – cooking up some incredible licks that fill in the spaces between the grooves with a wash of soulful colors! Titles include a great version of the James Brown Classic "Say It Loud", plus the originals "Snake Bone" and "Brother Soul" – and surprisingly great takes on "Summertime" and "Caravan"!

Duke EllingtonLove You Madly ... CD
Vee Jay/Collectables, Late 40s/1974. Used ... $1.99
Rare live material from Duke Ellington – first issued back in the 70s, but undoubtedly recorded decades before! The set's got a nicely gritty feel – that Ellington orchestra approach before they'd gotten too sure of themselves, and had lots of sharp edges – as you'll hear in the performance that features work by Shorty Baker and Al Killian on trumpets, Lawrence Brown and Tyree Glenn on trombones, and Jimmy Hamilton, Johnny Hodges, and Ben Webster on reeds! Titles include "The Mooche", "How High The Moon", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "The Hawk Talks", "The Tattooed Bride",a nd "Lover Come Back To Me", with vocals by Billie Holiday! CD

✨✧ Duke Ellington & John ColtraneDuke Ellington & John Coltrane ... CD
Impulse, 1962. Used ... $3.99
A seminal meeting of the old and new generations of jazz – put together in perfect Impulse fashion! At some level, this is actually a Coltrane Quartet album, with Duke sitting in for McCoy Tyner – as that's the lineup on about half of the album, tracks that feature Coltrane, Elvin Jones, and Jimmy Garrison with Ellington on the keys. At another level, it's Trane playing with a Duke-ish trio that has Aaron Bell on bass and Sam Woodyard on drums – but either way, it's a surprisingly successful meeting of the minds. Titles include "Big Nick", "The Feeling Of Jazz", "Take The Coltrane", and "My Little Brown Book". CD

Stan Getz QuintetBirdland Sessions 1952 ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1952. Used ... $4.99
The mighty Stan Getz – recorded in one of his greatest settings of the early 50s! The CD brings together 3 different live performances from the year 1952 – all of them featuring Stan in the company of guitarist Jimmy Raney, a key partner in crime during the time – working in quintet formation with other players that include Horace Silver or Duke Jordan on piano, Charles Mingus or Gene Ramey on bass, and Connie Kay or Phil Brown on drums. The recording quality is pretty good for the time and the liveness of the set, and there's a number of tracks that push past the 5 minute mark, with a more open sound than the Getz/Raney studio recordings. Titles include "Potter's Luck", "Parker 51", "Long Island Sound", "Yesterdays", "Spotlite", "The Song Is You", and "Move". CD

Jimmy GiuffreComplete 1947 to1953 Small Group Sessions – Vol 2 1953 ... CD
Blue Moon (Spain), 1953. Used ... $8.99
A much-needed collection of the early work of Jimmy Guiffre – one of the best sax talents of the west coast 50s scene, and an ever-committed modernist whose work here displays a keen early ear for the fresh and the new! The tunes appear to have been released on a variety of different labels – from RCA to Decca and a number of smaller imprints – and in most cases, Jimmy's blowing with a group led by a slightly more famous LA arranger or leader. The set features work in groups led by Shelly Manne, Shorty Rogers and Boots Brown – and titles include "Bunny", "Mallets", "Fugue", "Breakfast Ball", "Hip Boots", "Morpho", "Diablo's Dance", "The Pesky Serpent", "Powder Puff", and "Afrodesia". 20 tracks in all!

✨✧ Jimmy Giuffre 3Easy Way ... LP
Verve, 1959. Good+ ... $14.99
The Easy Way? Jimmy Giuffre never did anything the easy way – and his classic albums from the late 50s, some of the strongest modern jazz sides of the time, are a great testament to that fact! This album's one of the most obscure – and features Jimmy in his groundbreaking percussion-less trio mode – blowing tenor, clarinet, and baritone in a group with Jim Hall on guitar and Ray Brown on bass. The notes hang magically in air – still quite rhythmic, despite the freedom of the setting, but also stretching forth in an unfettered style that set the stage for countless jazz experiments to come. Titles include "Montage", "Time Enough", "Off Center", "A Dream", "Ray's Time", and "Careful". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Giuffre, Teddy Charles, & OthersHistoric Jazz Concert At Music Inn ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An obscure one – and a rare meeting of modern and trad players, or perhaps we should say modern players with an ability to fit well in a tradish setting. The album features Giuffre playing clarinet and tenor in 2 swing-based groups – one that features Pee Wee Russell, George Wein, Oscar Pettiford, and Connie Kay, the other that features the same, minus Russell, with Rex Stewart on trumpet – on 2 tracks, "Blues In E Flat" and "In A Mellotone". Even better, though, is the 3rd long track on the album – "The Quiet Time", a moody modern number that features Giuffre on clarinet, Teddy Charles on vibes, and Heath and Kay working perfectly behind them in a mode that mixes the airiness of Giuffre's work on Atlantic, some of Charles' own musings from the time, and a bit of MJQ. The last track is a version of "Body & Soul", with Herbie Mann on flute, Dick Katz on piano, Oscar Pettiford on cello, Ray Brown on bass, and Connie Kay on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing, with the "Long Playing Unbreakable" logo and deep groove. Cover is great!)

Beaver Harris & The 360 Degree Music ExperienceFrom Rag Time To No Time ... LP
360 Degrees, 1974. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Hardly any ragtime here – despite the title – and instead, the album's one of the greatest ever from drummer Beaver Harris – cut with his ultra-hip 360 Degree Music Experience group! The title is somewhat accurate in that the record brings together a long history of jazz-based expression – almost a century's worth of music, served up by Harris and the group members with the same fluid sensibility as Jaki Byard in his best work, although Byard was never this ambitious! The ensemble is somewhat large, but really comes together well – with an impressive range of artists who include Doc Cheatham on trumpet, Marshall Brown on trombone, Dave Burrell on piano, Keith Marks on flute, Cecil McBee and Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Maxine Sullivan and Bill Willingham on vocals. The album's sort of a mini-history of jazz, but one that's hardly hokey at all – and which usually veers towards Harris' more righteous modes of the 70s, even when hitting older styles. Sullivan is especially great – singing here as a sophisticated soul jazz diva of the 70s, and hardly the older-styled singer we might expect. A few moments are stripped down and percussive – and other odd instrumentation includes a bit of sitar and steel drums. Titles include "It's Hard To But We Do", "I Wish I Knew", "Can There Be Peace?", "Down In Brazil", "African Drums", and "Round Trip". LP, Vinyl record album

Tripped out bluesy cosmic rock ferocity and great songs, too – firing on all cylinders here on the middle record of their ultra epic three LP series of unimpeachable greatness. Titles include "EXP", "Up From The Skies", "Spanish Castle Magic", "Castles Made Of Sand", "She's So Fine", "One Rainy Wish", "Bold As Love" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimi Hendrix ExperienceElectric Ladyland ... LP
Reprise, 1968. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A true classic by Jimi with the original Experience lineup – the third of three straight up masterpiece LPs to comeout in just over a year's time by the group! You could call the leftfield astral effects in the mix experimental if you had to – innovations in the studio with echo, that hallucinatory backwards sound effect and other stranger bits – but the passionate, naturally expressive playing and singing by Jimi makes it all fell just right, and the Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell still don't get enough credit for being at the heart of such greatness. A massive 2LP effort that include s"Voodoo Chile", "Crosstown Traffic", "Electric Ladyland", "Little Miss Strange", "Moon Turn The Tides", "Still Raining Still Dreaming" and "All Along The Watchtower".

Earl HinesOnce Upon A Time ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
One of our favorite records by Earl Hines – a hip little comeback set, recorded in the mid 60s with an Ellingtonish lineup that includes Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Ray Nance, Lawrence Brown, Jimmy Hamilton, and Johnny Hodges. Hines' piano is certainly a strong force in the record, but even more delightful is the solid feel of the players overall – working with that complete coherence found in the best 60s sides by Duke, but touched here with some of Hines' sprightly approach to the melody. Titles include "Once Upon A Time", "Black & Tan Fantasy", "You Can Depend On Me", "Hash Brown", and "Fantastic That's You". LP, Vinyl record album

King/Sundazed, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
Guitar-heavy genius from one of the most important labels of the postwar years – the legendary King Records, home to James Brown and a heck of a lot of other great musicians too! This package focuses on the contributions that King made towards revolutionizing the sound of the electric guitar in the 50s – and chooses an ultra-hip batch of tracks that range from blues to R&B, and really come across with a hell of a lot of fire all these many years later! A few cuts have vocals, the rest are all instrumentals – and the tracks either feature a key guitarist as a leader, or groups that have a crucial electric player in the lineup. Titles include "San Ho Zay" by Freddie King, "Let's Rock" by Johnny Otis with Johnny Guitar Watson, "Dyna Flow" by Albert King, "Steam Roller" by Mickey Baker, "Louisiana Hop" by Pete Guitar Lewis, "After Hours" by Jimmy Nolen, "Stomp Boogie" by Texas Slim, "Space Guitar" by Young John Watson, "Floyd's Guitar Blues" by Bill Doggett, "Gainesville" by Roy Gaines, and "The Big Push" by Cal Green.

Chuck IsraelsNational Jazz Ensemble 1975/76 ... CD
Chiaroscuro, 1975/1976. Used ... $5.99
Quite an unusual little record – one that appears conventional at the start, but which has a relatively modern feel overall! The group's directed by Chuck Israels – who's really stepping out from his older roles here – working almost in Mingus-like formation, as he pushes the group through a wonderful range of tones and sounds – some modern, some older – but always with a freshness and a real sense of surprise! There's a leaping, soaring energy to many tracks – kind of a later Mingus groove – and players include Arnie Lawrence and Joe Romano on saxes, Rod Levitt and Jimmy Knepper on trombones, Tom Harrell and Mike Lawrence on trumpets, Steve Brown on guitar, and Ben Aronov on piano. A soprano, Margot Hanson, sings a bit on the record – and titles include "Very Early", "Transbluency", "Every Tub", "Understanding Depression", "Blues For OP", "I Mean You", "Lady Of The Lavender Mist", and "His Master's Voice".

Illinois JacquetSwing's The Thing (Swings The Thing/Cool Rage) ... CD
Verve/Lonehill (Spain), 1956/1958. Used ... $13.99
Great 50s Verve work from saxophonist Illinois Jacquet – 2 albums back to back on one CD! First up is Swing's The Thing", one of the greatest of the small-group sessions by Jacquet for Verve – and one of the hardest to find! The album is unique in that the songs are longer than usual for Jacquet, and that the band is quite small – really only a sextet, with Jimmy Jones on piano, Ray Brown on bass, Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Herb Ellis on guitar, and Jo Jones on drums. Tracks include "Las Vegas Blues", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", and "Achtung". After this, the CD features 4 more numbers that were recorded in 1958 for Verve, but never appeared until much later on the collection Cool Rage – a really unique quartet date that has Jacquet working with Wild Bill Davis on organ, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Johnny Williams on drums – in a mode that almost points the way towards later work by Illinois on Argo. Titles include "No Sweat", "Flying Home", "The Fluke", and "Nite Out" – and the CD also features a bonus take of "Robbin's Nest" from another album. CD
