Count BasieBand Of Distinction ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Certainly was the band of distinction – especially at this point, when the group featured players like Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Ernie Wilkins, Marshall Royal, Joe Newman, Thad Jones, Bennie Powell, and Freddie Green. And hey, let's not forget Basie himself! Titles include "Two Franks", "Ska Di Didle Dee Bee Doo", "Rails", "Blues Backstage", and "Perdido" – and there's a very strong focus on the best soloists in the group! LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear, aging, a split spine and partially split top seam.)

Count BasieBasie ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $44.99
A beautiful early Verve recording by Basie – one that's packaged here in a great David Stone Martin cover, with a red and blue watercolor of Basie himself. Players include Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Ernie Wilkins, Marshall Royal, Joe Newman, Thad Jones, Bennie Powell, and Freddie Green – plus Basie, of course. Titles include "Two Franks", "Ska Di Didle Dee Bee Doo", "Rails", "Blues Backstage", and "Perdido" – and there's a very strong focus on the best soloists in the group! (Note: this material was also issued under the title The Band Of Distinction – but this is the first version.) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label Clef pressing with a trumpeter logo & deep groove! Cover has wear and aging with a sticker in one corner. Vinyl plays with some clicks & crackles.)

Count BasieBasie In London ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
Basie was getting all over the place during the 50s – and this set's a great little concert recorded in London! The album's classic Basie for Verve – with Joe Williams on vocals on 3 tracks, and a tight group that includes Thad Jones, Joe Newman, Benny Powell, Matthew Gee, and Frank Foster. Titles include "Flute Juice", "Nails", "Blues Backstage", "Corner Pocket", "Roll Em Pete", and "Well All Right Okay You Win". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing with deep groove. Cover has some pen on the front, a split bottom seam, some splitting on the other seams, a piece of tape, some staining the bottom, and two ink stamps on the back. Labels have a bit of pen.)

Ray Bryant TrioRay Bryant Trio/Dancing The Big Twist ... CD
Columbia/Collectables, 1956/1962. Used ... $16.99
2 of Ray's early albums for Columbia – back to back on one CD! Ray Bryant Trio is Ray's first full LP, recorded shortly after his initial session with Betty Carter, which was also issued by Epic. The album's got Ray grooving in a hard early soul jazz mode – working in a trio with either Kenny Clarke or Osie Johnson on drums, and Wyatt Reuther on bass. Candido joins in on congas on 2 of the album's best tracks – a hard grooving take on "Night In Tunisia", plus Ray's classic "Cubano Chant", a dancing Latin groover that went onto become an oft-recorded Latin Jazz standard. Other titles include "Pawn Ticket", "Philadelphia Bound", and "Off Shore". Dancing The Big Twist was recorded as a follow-up to Ray's Madison Time album – one that has Columbia Records letting him loose on another dance craze – the twist! The set has none of the hoke of a Chubby Checker record, though – and instead, it's one of Ray's best soul jazz sides of the 60s, an excellent sextet session that's done with a gutbuckety groove, and which really sparkles thanks to some tight horn work by Joe Newman, Buddy Tate, and Matthew Gee. Ray's heavy left hand grooves really jump the whole set up nicely – and titles include "Big Susie", "Twist On", "Twist City", "Twistin On A Cat's Paw", and "Do That Twist". CD

Buck ClaytonComplete Legendary Jam Sessions Master Takes ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1953/1954. Used 3 CDs ... $19.99
A great document of a really unique slice of 50s jazz – the trad-based jam session recordings led by Buck Clayton in 1953 and 1954! The sessions were originally recorded for Columbia Records by John Hammond – and done in a style that wanted to break from the tighter jam session mode used over at Verve. Clayton was the ostensible leader, but Hammond really directed the sessions – using the famous trumpeter in conjunction with players that included Joe Newman, Urbie Green, Sir Charles Thompson, Joe Thomas, Al Cohn, Jo Jones, and others – all in a mode that had a rougher, more "on the spot" sort of feel. The set brings together 19 tracks on 3CDs – all much longer than usual for the time, especially for Clayton's recordings – and featuring titles that include "Moten Swing", "How Hi The Fi", "Blue Moon", "Lean Baby", "Robbin's Nest", "Undecided", "Blue Lou", and "All The Cats Join In".

Al CohnAl Cohn & His Charlie's Tavern Ensemble (East Coast West Coast/Mr Music) ... CD
RCA/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1954. Used ... $9.99
An album and a half from Al Cohn – all with his batch of players from the Charlie's Tavern scene! The core material here is from the RCA set Mr Music – a tight little record with a strong focus on Al Cohn's solo work! Al's the lead soloist in a number of largish groups that are often tightly arranged, but which let the leader break out nicely – cutting with an edge on his tenor that's sometimes even sharper than usual. Cohn handled most of the arrangements – but a few are by Johnny Carisi, Ralph Burns, or Manny Albam –a nd players include Joe Newman on trumpet, Billy Byaers and Frank Rehak on trombone, Gene Quill on alto, and Jimmy Raney on guitar. Proceedings are tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "Cabin In The Sky", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "This Reminds Me Of You", "Move", "Cohn My Way", "La Ronde", and "Never Never Land". The remaining three tracks on the record are from Al Cohn's "east" side of the album East Coast West Coast – a batch of material arranged by Al, and featuring Joe Newman on trumpet, Billy Byers and Eddie Bert on trombone, and Hal McKusick and Gene Quill on alto saxes. Titles include "Inside Out", "Autumn Leaves", and "Serenade For Kitty". CD

Freddie GreenMr. Rhythm ... CD
Koch/RCA, 1956. Used ... $15.99
A long overdue classic from Count Basie's excellent 50s guitarist! Freddie was one of the strongest single-line players of the 50s – coming to prominence in the years before Grant Green and Wes Montgomery completely transformed jazz guitar, but never getting as much chance as those greats to record under his own name. This rare 1956 set is one of the few that Freddie ever did on his own, and it's a nicely laidback small group romp, with players that include Al Cohn, Joe Newman, Nat Pierce, and Milt Hinton. Tracks are short, with a focus on Green's guitar on the solos. Titles include "Down For Double", "Free & Easy", "Date With Ray", "Swinging Back", and "Feed Bag". CD

Milt JacksonPlenty, Plenty Soul ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Plenty plenty soul here – as Milt Jackson's moving away from the Modern Jazz Quartet, and working with a great group of players that really expand his sound! The session's a bit like some of Milt's soul jazz work for Riverside and other labels – in that it's got rhythms, timings, and solos that all are much more gutbuckety than you'd expect from the other side of his career – a real nod towards the nascent soul jazz sound in the late 50s, served up with lots of undercurrents from R&B and gospel in the mix. Side one features players that include Ronnie Peters on alto sax, Frank Foster on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone – plus Horace Silver on piano – and Silver makes a return appearance on side two, alongside a group that includes Lucky Thompson on tenor and Joe Newman on trumpet. Titles include "Plenty, Plenty Soul", "Boogity Boogity", "Heartstrings", "Sermonette", "The Spirit Feel", "Ignunt Oil", and "Blues At Twilight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green label pressing. Cover has light wear and a cutout notch.)

Illinois JacquetSoul Explosion (plus bonus track) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1969. Used ... $7.99
A sweet soul explosion from Illinois Jacquet – a record that's quite different than his previous work for Verve, Chess, and Roulette – and one that has him fronting a very hip larger group! The "soul" in the title is well-placed – as there's a strong influence here from 60s music from Memphis and Muscle Shoals, spun out in a more jazz-based way – but not in styles that are as much like other soul jazz of the time. The tunes are much longer than standard soul instrumentals, and feature plenty of well-blown solos – but they also have a nicely gritty feel at the core, which makes for a nice change for Jacquet. Players include Joe Newman on trumpet, Matthew Gee on trombone, Frank Foster on tenor, Cecil Payne on baritone, Milt Buckner on piano and organ, and Wally Richardson on guitar – and titles include "The Soul Explosion", "After Hours", "I'm A Fool To Want You", and "The Eighteenth Hole". CD also features the previously unissued bonus track "Still King". CD

Jazz Interactions OrchestraJazzhattan Suite ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
Hard swinging orchestral session that's basically an Oliver Nelson project – and it's one of his best, we might add! The "Jazzhattan Suite" is a suite of tracks written as a tribute to New York. Titles of passages include "The East Side/The West Side", "125th & 7th Ave", and "Penthouse Dawn" – if that gives you any hint. Nelson's writing is impeccable, as always, and although the group is fairly large, he gets them to swing in the way that he did on his best work with folks like Jimmy Smith or Lou Donaldson. Players include Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, Ron Carter, Patti Brown, and Joe Newman (who also did a bit of the conducting). Groovy stuff, and like finding a hip jazzy soundtrack! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie JeffersonThings Are Getting Better ... LP
Muse, 1974. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the weirdest, wildest albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – a real standout classic that shows him retooling his sound for the 70s! After years of writing lyrics to James Moody and Charlie Parker tunes, Eddie lays out some crazy lyrics for modern jazz standards like "Freedom Jazz Dance" and "Bitches Brew", as well as "Night In Tunisia", which he'd never done before – and also offers up a great take on Cannonball's "Things Are Getting Better", not to mention Sly Stone's "Thank You Fallentinme Be Mice Elf Again"! There's a few more standard bop number in the mix too – like "Billie's Bounce" and "I Just Got Back In Town – and support is from a great group that includes Billy Mitchell on tenor, Joe Newman on trumpet, Sam Jones on bass, and Mickey Tucker on keyboards. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is peeled along the opening on both sides, with some splitting on the top seam, and ink stamps on back.)

Verve, 1961. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Very swingin' instrumental version of the score to this goofy musical, arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland, with a batch of players like Clark Terry, Oliver Nelson, Phil Woods, and Joe Newman – so you know the whole thing's tight and groovy. Includes nice renditions of "Grand Old Ivy", "Happy To Keep His Dinner Warm", and "Paris Original". LP, Vinyl record album

Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
Don't be put off by the "blues" in the title – as this is a great album from Jimmy, with a complicated jazzy feel! The set was arranged, composed, and conducted by Manny Albam – who sets Jimmy's organ in a suite of tracks that have a far-reaching sound that you won't find on Jimmy's other albums from the time. Jerome Richardson plays some incredible work on saxes, and the rest of the group includes Joe Newman, Richard Davis, and Mel Lewis. Titles include "Better Late Than Never", "Slim Jim", "Time Waltzes On", "The Deacon's Peekin", and "Friday Nite's Rite". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetPlastic Dreams ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1971. Used ... $7.99
One of the groovier albums the Modern Jazz Quartet ever recorded – as you might expect, given the cover and title! In addition to the group's usual cool sound from Milt Jackson's vibes, the set also features John Lewis playing a bit of harpsichord in addition to his usual piano – and the group's also augmented on a few tracks with some great horns from Snookie Young and Joe Newman on trumpets, Garnett Brown on trombone, Jim Buffington on French horn, and Don Butterfield on tuba – a change that really gives the record a nicely different flavor from other MJQ albums. John Lewis composed all of the tracks – and titles include "Walkin Stomp", "Dancing", "Plastic Dreams", "Variations On A Christmas Theme", "Travlin", "Piazza Novona", and "England's Carol". CD

Marian MontgomeryMarian Montgomery Swings For Winners & Losers ... LP
Capitol, 1963. Very Good+ ... $1.99
We love Marian Montgomery – and she's a heck of a great singer with a really unusual sound! In an early 60s work of sultry vixens, Marian's got a harder-swinging groove that's almost in a Ray Charles mode – clearly inspired by 50s R&B, but done with enough of a jazz flourish to expand out the sound nicely. Plus, she's got a really rhythmic approach to her work, no matter what the tune – which makes for an uncanny ability to turn even a sleeper into a surprising swinger. Here, it also helps that Dick Hyman's handling the arrangements – playing organ and piano himself on the record, and working with a small combo that includes Kenny Burrell, Joe Newman, Milt Hinton, and Willie Rodriguez. The whole thing's plenty great – and titles include "Breezin Along With The Breeze", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "My Buddy", "The Exciting Mister Fitch", "Deed I Do", and "All By Myself".

A serious piece of jazz orchestral work – directed by John Lewis, conducted by Harold Farberman, and featuring solos by Jerome Richardson, Joe Newman, Dick Katz, and Richard Davis. The work's perhaps Lewis' most seriously avant garde on record – taking off even further from previous experiments, and featuring compositions written by Jimmy Giuffre, Hall Overton, and Teo Macero. Titles include "Sonorities For Orchestra", "Pressure", "Hex", and "The Spiritual". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent bop side that finds Stitt and his sidemen still at the top of their game, despite the fact that the date was rather late in many of their careers. While others were exploring electric jazz, Stitt, Joe Newman, Duke Jordan, Sam Jones and Roy Brooks, lay out six sides of crisp hard bop: "The Champ", "Sweet & Lovely", "The Midgets", "The Eternal Triangle", "AllThe Things You Are" and "Walkin'".
