✨✧ Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... CD
Mercury/Verve, 1964. Used ... $2.99
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". CD

Marion BrownVista ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A strangely wonderful album from Marion Brown – quite different from his other work on Impulse, with a mellow electric edge that gives it a warm and laidback feel! The approach here is much more soulful than before – with finely crafted tunes that weave Brown's work on alto with electric piano by Anthony Davis and Stanley Cowell, percussion by Ed Blackwell and Jimmy Hopps, and bass by Reggie Workman. If you're expecting the angrier Brown from earlier years, you'll be disappointed – but if you're ready to hear a Brown that's gently crafting mellow lines in a soulful setting, then you're in for a treat. Tracks include Cowell's "Maimoun", Stevie Wonder's "Visions", Brown's "Vista", "Moment of Truth", "Bismillah Rrahimani Rrahim", and "Djinji". CD

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 ... $3.99
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

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, 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!)

Jimi Hendrix ExperienceElectric Ladyland ... LP
Reprise, 1968. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Earl HinesOnce Upon A Time ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $13.99
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 ... $7.99
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".

Milt JacksonBallad Artistry Of Milt Jackson/Vibrations ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1959/1964. Used ... $6.99
2 great albums on 1 CD. A sweet set of ballads from vibist Milt Jackson that we dig as much for the silky smooth orchestrations by Quincy Jones as Milt's agile and crisp approach to the vibes. The strings and horns buoy the group nicely, which also features Connie Kay and under recorded guitarist Barry Galbraith on a number of tunes. Ten mellow numbers: "The Cylinder", "Makin Whoopee", "Alone Together", "Tenderly", "Don't Worry Bout Me", "Nuages", "Deep In A Dream", "I'm A Fool To Want You", "The Midnight Will Never Set" and "Tomorrow". Vibrations features players like Jimmy Heath and Tommy Flanagan alongside Milt, and has nice buoyant feel throughout, as they run through some nice bop versions of standards and blues. Includes the title track, plus "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Algo Bueno", "Mallets Towards None" and 4 more. CD

Illinois JacquetSwing's The Thing (Swings The Thing/Cool Rage) ... CD
Verve/Lonehill (Spain), 1956/1958. Used ... $15.99
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

Blue Note, 1953. Near Mint- ... $16.99
First volume of the two LP set that compiled JJ's bop trombone sides for Blue Note. Great stuff, and arguably among some of his best work. The arrangements are tight, and JJ's in the company of great rhythm players like Kenny Clarke, Horace Silver, and Paul Chambers, who make the sessions really swing. Soloists include Clifford Brown and Jimmy Heath, and the tracks include "Turnpike", "Sketch 1", "Capri", "Lover Man", "Get Happy", and "Coffee Pot". LP, Vinyl record album

JJ JohnsonJay Jay Johnson (10 inch LP) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
A stunning little record – and one that really helped rewrite the sound of jazz trombone during the bop generation – thanks to the amazingly tight sound of a young JJ Johnson! JJ's in perfect formation here – working his instrument with the sharpness of a bop trumpet, but a depth that's incredibly soulful – perfectly paired with a young Clifford Brown's trumpet in the album's group – which also features strong tenor from Jimmy Heath, plus piano from John Lewis, bass from Percy Heath, and drums from the great Kenny Clarke! That rhythm trio is three fourths of the original Modern Jazz Quartet – and add some nice modern elements to the record – on titles that include "Turnpike", "Sketch 1", "Capri", "Lover Man", "Get Happy", and "It Could Happen To You". 2014 Blue Note Authorized Dealer pressing – in celebration of Blue Note's 75th Anniversary – and the indie retailers that support them!

Henry ManciniBig Latin Band Of Henry Mancini/Latin Sound Of Henry Mancini ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1965/1968. New Copy ... $16.99
2 great albums of Latiny tunes from Henry Mancini! The Big Latin Band Of Henry Mancini features a very hip lineup of west coast jazzmen – including Bud Shank and Tom Scott on reeds, Buddy Childers and Pete Candoli on trumpets, Ray Brown on acoustic bass, Max Bennett on fender bass, Larry Bunker on percussion, and Shelly Manne on drums. The rhythms have a great mix of Latin influences and Mancini magic, the kind of grooves you'd hear on his 60s soundtracks at the time, and the vibe is nice and relaxed. It's a bit more upbeat than bossa, but not as all-out as other RCA Latin sessions – thanks to Mancini's nice sense of warmth and space in the arrangements. Titles include some pretty darn cool takes on "Mission Impossible", "Fistful Of Dollars", "Magnificent Seven", "Touch Of Evil", and "Springtime For Hitler", from the film The Producers. Other titles include "Patricia", "Zacatecas", and "Las Cruces". The Latin Sound record is a gem from a few years earlier – with some great arrangements by Mancini! The album's less a straight Latin date than it is a new approach to the grooves Henry was laying down on his 60s soundtracks – a mix of bossa and cha cha-inspired themes that sparkle wonderfully with warm jazzy touches from a host of LA players who include Dick Nash on trombone, Harry Klee on flute, Ted Nash on alto and tenor, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Laurindo Almeida on guitar, and Gene Garf on organ – all working beautifully under Mancini's direction, with a sound that's both tight and relaxed at the same time! Lots of tracks have some nice groovy organ, which gives the arrangements a cool lively sound – and titles include "Preciosa", "Baia", "Carnavalito", "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars", "Tico Tico", and the nice "Senor Peter Gunn", a Latin remake of Mancini's big hit!

Jimmy McGriffStump Juice ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
Massively funky – and one of Jimmy McGriff's best albums for the Groove Merchant label! The album's follows strongly on the mode of Jimmy's classic Worm album – also produced by Sonny Lester, issued slightly before on the Solid State label. The set's got that stripped-down, hard-n-funky sound that Jimmy used on his best albums from the time – rhythm crackling at the bottom with a really sharp edge, and a lean, clean keyboards soaring over the top in some really mighty solo work – somewhere between James Brown funk and early 70s soundtracks! The drums are great, the tunes are tasty, and Jimmy plays both keyboards and Hammond – with a groove that's always outta site! Titles include the funky "Stump Juice", plus "TNT", "Stretch Me Out", "Pisces", "Cumayon", and "Purple Onion". LP, Vinyl record album

Looks like a compilation, but a set that features some great material! Side one features Oliver Nelson directing a special group with JJ Johnson on trombone, Nat Adderley and Clark Terry on trumpets, Phil Woods and Jerome Richardson on reeds, and Hank Jones on piano – on titles that include "St Louis Blues", "I Remember Bird", and "John Brown's Blues".

Jimmy RushingCat Meets Chick/Jazz Odyssey Of James Rushing Esq. ... CD
Columbia/Collectables, 1956/1957. Used ... $5.99
2 mid 50s sides cut for Columbia as part of Jimmy Rushing's revival during that decade. Cat Meets Chick is an interesting set – kind of a parody of the Girl Meets Boy album that had been issued a year or two before on Columbia – done with vocals by Jimmy and Ada Moore, and recorded as a "story in jazz" about love, love found, and love lost. Jimmy and Ada sing both separately and together, Buck Clayton plays a few instrumental sides – and titles include "The Blues", "Cool Breeze Woman", "Ain't She Sweet", "If I Could Be With You", and "Pretty Little Baby". Jazz Odyssey also features work by Buck Clayton – and is a record done in a style that Columbia was using on a number of sides in the late 50s and early 60s, Jimmy and Buck do a bit of educatin' – and trace a progression of jazz styles from New Orleans, to Chicago, to Kansas City, and New York. The Odyssey's not really Jimmy's, so much as it is the jazz that was defined by the white liberal tastes that always were the main force between Columbia in the early years – but the set's still a nice one, like all of Jimmy's later work for Columbia, which features some of the best-recorded vocal work of his career. Titles include "New Orleans", "Doctor Blues", "Rosetta", "Piney Brown Blues", "Lullaby Of Broadway", and "Some Of These Days". CD

Jimmy RushingEssential Jimmy Rushing ... CD
Vanguard, 1954/1955. Used ... $7.99
Vocalist Jimmy Rushing first came to fame working with Count Basie in the 30s, but it wasn't until the 50s that he really got the chance to step out on his own and cut a number of great sessions in the studio! This set features one of Jimmy's finest moments of the 50s – material recorded for Vanguard Records in 1954 and 1955, respectively, and featuring Rushing in the company of great small group trad players like Buddy Tate, Pat Jenkins, Emmett Berry, Lawrence Brown, and Freddie Green. The format is laidback and simple on both records – a style that clearly hearkens back to the Kansas City swing of the 30s, but which is delivered here with a more stripped-down approach that lets us focus even more on Rushing's earthy vocal presentation. Titles include the original tracks "Good Morning Blues", "Take Me Back Baby", "Sent For You Yesterday", and "Goin To Chicago" – plus versions of "How Long", "See See Rider", "Evenin". CD
