Jimmy RogersChicago Bound ... CD
Chess, 1950s. Used ... $6.99
The title's an apt one here, as Jimmy Rogers was one of the many bluesmen who started out in the south, but headed to Chicago for greater fame – which was a good thing for Chess Records, who managed to come some of these great sides in the 50s! Rogers both sings and plays guitar – the later of which has a sometimes snakey quality that almost echoes a slight bit of jazz – a mode that recalls some of the inventions T Bone Walker was putting down at the time, but a little bit rootsier overall. Players on these sessions include Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Otis Spann, and Willie Dixon – and tracks include "Money Marbles & Chalk", "Ludella", "You're The One", "Back Door Friend", "I Used To Have A Woman", "Sloppy Drunk", "Blues Leave Me Alone", and "Walking By Myself".

Teddy Charles/Shorty RogersCollaboration West (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1953. Used ... $11.99
Great vibes from the legendary Teddy Charles – a set that brings together some of his best early moments for Prestige Records! This full set combines two earlier 10" sessions recorded by Charles – both done in LA in 1953, in small group formations with Shorty Rogers on trumpet, Curtis Counce on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – plus Jimmy Giuffre on tenor on a few added tracks! The tunes have more of a west coast groove than some of Charles later 50s work – but his tone and approach still keeps things nice and edgey – filled with those great tones and colors that made Teddy one of the most inventive players on vibes at the time. The other west coast players definitely rise to the occasion, playing with an modern style that's greater than usual – and titles include "Variations On A Motive By Bud", "Wailing Dervish", "Further Out", "Boabalob 1 & 2", and "Margo". Added to the original album are 4 more tracks from the similar Ezz-thetic album – quartet numbers that feature Charles with Jimmy Raney on guitar, in a wonderfully chromatic mode. Tunes include "Nocturne", "Edging Out", "Composition For Four Pieces", and "Night In Tunisia". CD

✨✧ Shorty RogersWizard Of Oz & Other Harold Arlen Songs ... CD
RCA/DRG, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty darn great record, and a lot more swinging than you'd expect! The basic theme is the Wizard Of Oz – but Shorty makes the tunes groove way way more than they ever did, and thanks to help from hip players like Jimmy Giuffre, Herb Geller, and Bud Shank, the tracks have loads of breakway moments that are nice and jazzy! In way, working in this sort of tightly restricted set was a great way to get Rogers out of his mid 50s slump – when he was writing himself into a corner with the same sort of chamber jazz numbers all the time. In this sort of album, he's already got the basic pattern – and is free to really open up the band and the charts with the sort of creativity that he began his career with. Titles include "The Jitterbug", "Over The Rainbow", "We're Off To See The Wizard", and "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead". CD

✨✧ Jimmy GreeneWhile Looking Up ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We're sure that Jimmy Greene shot that cover photo before the Covid-19 lockdown, but the image has a particularly strong resonance after all of us have faced that situation – which is why the "looking up" title on the album is very well placed! Greene's music has this sense of positivity that's really great – not an easy, blithely optimistic vibe – but this personal spirit that really comes through in his music – a vibe that's uplifting, but never too facile too – this great quality that comes through the interplay of Jimmy's work on tenor and soprano, with guitar from Lage Lund, piano and Fender Rhodes from Aaron Goldberg, bass from Reuben Rogers, and drums from Kendrick Scott – plus some guest vibes from Stefon Harris too. Most tracks are Greene originals – and titles include "Overreaction", "Steadfast", "Simple Prayer", "While Looking Up", and "April 4th". CD

Great Jazz TrioClub New Yorker ... CD
Denon (Japan), 1983. Used ... $9.99
A slightly different setting than usual for the Great Jazz Trio – in that about half of this record features a violin added to the trio lineup, bringing a slight "with strings" quality to a few of the mellower tunes and ballads! The trio here features Hank Jones on piano at the helm, along with bass by Eddie Gomez and drums from Jimmy Cobb – both subtle accompanists who really get into the spirit of the session, which is mostly comprised of Gershwin tunes, plus 2 more from Rogers & Hart. Violin is by Lewis Eley, and titles include "Isn't It Romantic", "S'Wonderful", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "I've Got A Crush On You", "Manhattan", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". CD

VariousR&B & Classic Soul Vol 2 – Lost In Sin – From The Cellar Of Soul 1953 to 1962 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Great gritty grooves from this wonderful series – a sublime set of R&B tracks, but all chosen from the perspective of later soul music too! The tracks are a nice change from the older style R&B compilations – as they all have a great little groove, and plenty of elements that really point the way towards 60s soul – both in the instrumentation and the really great vocals over the top! We totally trust the Outta Sight label for their choices in Northern Soul – and with sets like this, we find we can equally trust their choices in older music too – thanks to a sweet set list that includes "I Really Love You" by Jeanie Allen, "Homework" by Otis Rush, "I'm Shakin" by Little Willie John, "What Have I Done" by Jimmy Rogers, "Just Like You Like It" by Clennt Gant, "What A Mess" by Bobby Adams, "Gonna Catch Me A Rat" by Milt Trenier, "I'll Have To Let You Go" by Sally Stanley, "Crap Shottin Sinner" by Cile Turner, "Keep A Callin" by Paul Perryman, "I Want You Here Beside Me" by Johnnie & Joe, "Oriental Garden" by Ramona King, and "Lost In Sin" by Spirit Of Memphis.

✨✧ Betty Bennett/Lurlean HunterNobody Else But Me/Blue & Sentimental ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1956/1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two rare sides of jazz vocals from Atlantic! Betty Bennett's 1956 album Nobody Else But Me features arrangements by Shorty Rogers and Andre Previn – and a nice icy west coast cool style of singing. The tracks are an interesting batch of slighly-exotic numbers, some from shows, and titles include "Sidewalks Of Cuba", "Island In The West Indies", "Tomorrow Mountain", "This Is The Moment", and "Treat Me Rough". Blue & Sentimental is probably the best-ever album by Lurlean Hunter, an obscure bluesy singer from Chicago! Jimmy Giuffre handled the arrangements, and the record has a bit more polish than some of her other albums. The tracks feature some very nice jazzy arrangements – with Jim Hall on guitar, Jimmy Jones on piano, and Harry Edison on trumpet. Lurlean's voice is deep and rich, with a sound that's a mix of Ella Fitzgerald and some of the icier singers, like Chris Connor or June Christy. Tracks include "Blue Turning Grey Over You", "Just Imagine", "My Kinda Love", "As Long As I Live", and "The Song Is You". CD

✨✧ Teddy CharlesEvolution ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1953/1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A full 12" LP that combines two earlier sessions by Teddy Charles – some of his best early 50s modernist work, proof that he was one of the standout talents of the postwar years on vibes! The first session features two long tracks – "Evolution" and "Free" – played by a west coast quintet that includes Jimmy Giuffre on tenor, Shorty Rogers trumpet, Curtis Counce bass, and Shelly Manne drums. The other tracks on the set feature a group that's even better – the New Directions Quartet with JR Monterose, Charles Mingus, and Gerry Segal – in a sound that's airy, yet bracing – and like nothing else we can think of! Tracks on that set include "Relaxo Abstracto", "Violetta", "Speak Low", and "Jay Walkin". CD

✨✧ VariousMasterpiece Volume 32 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Mid 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great entry in this long-running collection – a series that's really evolved over the years, as you'll hear on this CD! Masterpiece was never about straight disco at the start – it always focused on more obscure post-disco tracks from the early 80s – and by the time of this volume, the label's shifted a lot more towards the second half of the decade – so that you've got a range of very cool 80s groove numbers that fly way below the radar! Most of these are tracks we'd never heard before – much more obscure than the early volumes – and there's a great range of work from varied sources, with titles that include "One & Only" by Cool R, "Jealous Lovers" by Ritsch $, "Come To Me" by Bennie Braxton, "Green Light" by Carmen Bogart, "I Can't Wait To Break" by Billy Jones, "I'll Be There (club mix)" by Demetrius, "Jealousy" by Bora Bora, "A Lover's Passion" by Tammi Holt, "Don't Quit (12" mix)" by Cecile Grier, "Confide In Me (ext radio)" by Jimmy Holland, and "Shifting Sands" by Pete Q with Helen Rogers.

✨✧ AcesChicago Beat (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from this Chicago group – material recorded in France, but which wails with the best sound of the small blues clubs on the south side at the time! The core group features Louis Myers on guitar and harmonica, Dave Myers on bass, and Fred Below on drums – joined by Eddie Taylor, Mickey Baker, and Jimmy Rogers on guitar at points – plus a bit of piano from the great Willie Mabon! The whole thing's excellent – very true to form, and more Delmark than some of the slicker blues recordings that were starting to show up at the time – on titles that include "Ace's Shuffle", "Tell Me Mama", "Take A Little Walk With Me", "Whole Lot Of Lovin", "Blues For Marcelle", and "Money Marbles & Chalk". CD features lots of bonus tracks – 6 more tracks added to the original album! CD

✨✧ Willie MabonShake That Thing ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (France), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great date from this legendary Chicago musician – an artist who recorded in the early days for Chess Records, then seemed to find his most welcome recording home overseas on albums like this! The material is from a 1973 session in France, but has all the grit and growl of a Chicago recording – with Willie on vocals, piano, and a bit of harmonica – and some sweet electric lines on guitar from the team of Louis Myers on lead, and Jimmy Rogers on rhythm – alongside Dave Myers on bass and Fred Below on drums. There's almost a slight current of funk at times, which Willie emphasizes with his piano in a great way – and titles include "Got To Have Some", "Shake That Thing", "Poison Ivy", "I'm Mad", "Lover Girl", "I Enjoyed Myself In Pau", "Hungry", and "Hey Girl". CD features a number of unissued tracks – including a few recorded at the same time in The Netherlands with guest vocals on one track by Koko Taylor! CD

✨✧ Leon BryantMighty Body (Hotsy Totsy)/Finders Keepers (with bonus track) ... CD
De-Lite/Solid (Japan), 1981/1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of great records from Leon Bryant – both from the late De-Lite Records years, and offered up here back to back! First up is Mighty Body – a set also known as the self-titled Leon Bryant album – overlooked genius from Leon – a singer with a hell of a voice, and a range that can go from very low to super-soaring at the drop of a hat! And fortunately, that style works great here for the later De-Lite Records approach – funky club at its best, with grooves that are already great before Bryant steps into the mix – then find a special sort of magic, thanks to Leon's voice! There's also a good mix of balance, here – as the upbeat groovers are blended with some nice midtempo cuts, and one great stepper too. Titles include "Something More", "Come & Get It", "Just The Way You Like It", and "You Can Depend On Me". Next up is Finders Keepers, a record that would have been huge, had it gotten the kind of mainstream placement it deserved – which would have let the world hear what a great singer Leon Bryant could be! The set's got some top-shelf arrangements from Jimmy Mack and Sonny Sanders – both of whom are sliding perfectly into an 80s soul groove here, but still with all the hipper indie touches of the early years – which means that the whole thing perfectly avoids cliche or commercialism, while also giving Bryant the right sort of sophisticated vibe that works well with the depth of his voice. The range is almost one that we'd rank right up there with DJ Rogers – although with less of the spiritual vibe – and titles include "Are You Ready", "Honey", "Finders Keepers", "Your Kind Of Lovin", and "I Can See Me Loving You". CD also features the bonus track "Mighty Body (original 12" version)". CD
