Joe NewmanAll I Wanna Do Is Swing – The Joe Newman Story ... LP
RCA, 1955. Very Good ... $19.99
During the mid 50s, RCA virtually had a lock on this sort of classic swing-based jazz session – and this nice groover by Joe Newman is a perfect example of the label's legacy in that field. The session features an octet with Joe, Al Cohn, Ernie Wilkins, Nat Pierce, and Freddie Greene – and it sports arrangements by Wilkins, Cohn, and Manny Albam. Titles are short, with lots of ensemble playing and solos by Joe. With "Soon", "Topsy", "Jack's Wax", "Leonice", and "It's A Thing Of The Past". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some seam splitting.)

Vanguard, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $24.99
One of the hippest Vanguard jazz sessions of the 50s – with Joe Newman on trumpet, plus Frank Wess on tenor and flute, Matthew Gee on trombone, and Frank Foster on tenor! Long tracks – and titles include "The Sleeper", "Blue For Slim", "Close Quarters", and "Jose Beguines". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Newman/Zoot SimsLocking Horns ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy ... $14.99
We're not sure we've ever heard trumpeter Joe Newman and tenorist Zoot Sims work together on a record – and certainly never as striking a setting as this – a record that really gives both musicians a chance to open up and blow! Despite the title, the players are less "locking horns" here than really working together in the lead – hitting the kind of tight head arrangements that you might hear on some of Sims material with RCA, but getting a grittier groove from both the Roulette Records style of recording, and the efforts of a cool rhythm trio that features Adrian (Johnny?) Acea on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Osie Johnson drums. Newman's horn has an especially gutbuckety quality, and Sims follows suit with some deeply soulful work on his solos – on titles that include "Corky", "Mambo For Joe", "Midnite Fantasy", "Tater Pie", "Oh Joe", and "Oh Shaye".

Tight swing-based material from trumpeter Joe Newman, featuring Frank Foster as a very welcome bandmate in the frontline! The rest of the group includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, plus Eddie Jones on bass and Bill English on drums. The tracks have a nice open-ended quality, with good room for grooving and solos, and lots of nice tenor from Foster. Titles include "To Rigmor", "AM Romp", "Mo Lasses", and "Loop D Loop".

David Newman/Dizzy GillespieWeapon/At Home & Abroad ... CD
Collectables, 1957/1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
2 more lost jazz albums from the Atlantic catalog – one a funky bit of soul jazz, the other a tasty bop groover. David Newman's The Weapon features the funky sax player in a number of different electric combos, with players like Bernard Purdie, Richard Tee, Cornell Dupree, and others. The songs are a mixture of jazzy soloing and 70s soul arrangements, some with backing vocals by the Sweet Inspirations, in a style that Atlantic was using for other albums at the time. Tracks include "Yes We Can Can", "Happy Times", "Seems Like I Gotta Do Wrong", and "Freedom For The Stallion". Diz's album, Home & Abroad, is a much more straight-ahead jam – and features some of Dizzy's best bop playing of the late 50s. He's joined by groovy vocalist Joe Carroll on many numbers, and titles include "Just Blues", "Mrs. Diz", "Cognac Blues", "Blues Chante", and "This Is Happiness". A strange combo, but at this price, either one's a great deal, and together, how can you beat it? CD

Count BasieApril In Paris ... LP
Verve, 1955. Very Good- ... $9.99
One of Basie's biggest albums – but still a work of pure genius! "April In Paris" is one of the darkest jazz standards ever written, and it never sounded better than in this original version, which features that great ending in which Basie and the band stop, then start, then stop – leaving you completely unresolved at the finish. The group's a strong one – with Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Freddie Green, Sonny Payne, Marshall Royal, Henry Coker, Joe Newman, and Thad Jones – and tracks include "Shiny Stockings", "Midgets", "Mambo Inn", "Sweety Cakes", and "Corner Pocket".

Basie-itesHow High The Moon ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good ... $16.99
A really cooking session from key members of the Count Basie group of the 50s – players that include Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Joe Newman, Freddie Green, Al Grey, and Thad Jones – plus a young Barry Harris on piano, and the great Blue Mitchell on trumpet! There's a nicely crackling energy to this set that gets away from some of the other "Basie players without Basie" records from the time – a relaxed, jamming sort of approach that really has the players opening up in the freedom away from the larger group. Some of the ballads here are actually the nicest numbers, played with a really mellow feel that has a strong focus on the soloists – and titles include a longish take on "How High The Moon", plus the shorter numbers "When I Think About Lovin You", "My Old Flame", "Blue Moon", "Poor Butterfly", and "Stairway To The Stars". LP, Vinyl record album

Ralph BurnsJazz Studio 5 ... LP
Decca, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $11.99
Fantastic work from one of our favorite jazz arrangers ever! As proven by some of his impeccable work crafting larger backings for artists on the Verve and Clef labels, Ralph Burns had an approach that was quite different than most of his contemporaries. He worked in a mode that seemed pretty standard at the outset – with an approach to backdrops that worked in broad colors of sound and tone – but he also had a talent for putting in strange modern twists, little surprises, and other embellishments that never detracted from the soloist, and instead seemed to keep them on their toes, forcing them to really come up with some great stuff during their time at the recording. You'll hear plenty of that kind of action going on here – in one of Burns' rarest sets ever, recorded with a group that includes Billy Byers, Joe Newman, Dave Schildkraut, Herbie Mann, and Milt Hinton. Mann's particularly great, and plays a number of horns with ease – and titles include "Cool Cat On A Hot Tin Roof", "What Am I Here For", "I'll Be Around", "Jazz Club USA", and "South Gonzales Street Parade.

A live set recorded very much in a classic Verve mode – actually produced by Benny himself, and recorded in Tokyo in 1977 with a small group that includes Budd Johnson, Cecil Payne, Cat Anderson, Nat Pierce, and Joe Newman. Tracks are long, and titles include "Them There Eyes", "It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing", and "Squatty Roo". CD

Ray CharlesGreat Ray Charles ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Good+ ... $9.99
As Ray was making the switch to ABC for his vocal-oriented material, Atlantic managed to capture his jazz-oriented talents on a few great sessions like this one – which features Charles' piano in the foreground, set in a nice small group setting with other players from his band, like David Newman, Joe Bridgewater, and Emmott Dennis. The overall sound is mellow and soulful, and titles include "Black Coffee", "The Ray", "Doodlin", and "Sweet Sixteen Bars". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple pinwheel label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a center split on the bottom seam, otherwise looks nice.)

5 hard to get numbers by alto genius Criss from an obscure 1951 date at the Shrine Auditorium – with a slightly largeish group that includes Bennie Green, Joe Newman, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, and Kenny Clarke. Nice lengthy takes in this lost set of include "Intermission Riff", "How High The Moon", "Perdido", "Body & Soul" and "High Jump". CD

Lurlean HunterNight Life ... LP
Vik, 1956. Very Good- ... $9.99
An RCA classic from Lurlean Hunter – a singer who's sadly overlooked these days, but who was a real up-and-comer from the Chicago scene in the 50s! Lurlean's got a style that's surprisingly smooth at times – much richer and more jazz-based than the sometimes-bluesy cover images she was given – a quality that sounds especially great here amidst fuller backings from Manny Albam, an arranger who really helps Hunter cross over strongly for the set. The record's beautifully done – poised, but still filled with soul and feeling – and players on the date include Joe Newman on trumpet, Al Cohn on tenor, and Barry Galbraith on guitar. Titles include some lesser-known numbers like "Moondrift" and "Night Life" – plus "Gentleman Friend", "What A Difference A Day Makes", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Sunday", and "This Time The Dream's On Me".

Milt JacksonPlenty, Plenty Soul (Atlantic Jazzlore pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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

Illinois JacquetSoul Explosion (plus bonus track) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1969. Used ... $6.99
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

Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenny Sings With Jimmy Jones & The Basie-ites ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $14.99
Bev Kenny sounds surprisingly great in this Basie-styled setting – one that has Jimmy Jones handling the keys instead of the Count – with added support from players who include Joe Newman on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor and flute, and Freddie Green on guitar! Like most of Kenny's sessions of the 50s, there's a quality here that really goes beyond standard vocal jazz – a real feel for the material, and a relaxed command of the small combo setting that must have made Beverly a hell of an act to catch in the clubs. Her natural sweetness is a nice contrast to the deeper tones of the Basie players – and titles include "I Never Has Seen Snow", "The More I See You", "The Charm Of You", "My Kind Of Love", "Who Cares What People Say", and "Can't Get Out Of This Mood".

✨✧ Jack McDuffChange Is Gonna Come/Double Barrelled Soul ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1966/1968. Used ... $4.99
2 of Brother Jack's best albums for Atlantic on one CD! Both records have a groovy 60's soul jazz organ sound, and the kind of amazing arrangements that make Jack's albums way better than most of his contemporaries. Change Is Gonna Come has lots of short soulful instrumentals, Joe Dukes or Pretty Purdie on drums, and titles like "Down In The Valley", "Same Old, Same Old", "No Tears", "Minha Saudade", and "Hotcha". Double Barrelled Soul has David Fathead Newman as a special guest, and features some nice early guitar playing by Melvin Sparks. That one includes a great version of "Sunny", plus the cuts "Esperanto", "Duffin' Round", and "More Head". Nice stuff, and over 70 minutes of funky organ grooves! CD

Jimmy SmithGot My Mojo Workin'/Hoochie Cooche Man ... CD
Verve/Jazz Heritage, 1965. Used ... $9.99
Although he was the consummate high-class hipster at the start of his career, for some reason Jimmy Smith seemed to hit a forced sort of rootsy style about halfway through his years at Verve. The style worked well for him, even if it sometimes languished in bluesy tones that seemed a bit forced – and on this album, his basic trio of Grady Tate and Kenny Burrell are augmented by arrangements by Oliver Nelson. Nelson keeps things from getting too hokey, and Jimmy's organ lines are free and sharp on the best cuts. Titles include "Mustard Greens", "Hobson's Hop", "Got My Mojo Workin", and "High Heel Sneakers". Jimmy pays tribute to an earlier generation of R&B – in a hard-wailing set of soul jazz, done with backings from the legendary Oliver Nelson! A few tracks feature vocals by Jimmy, in a rough bluesy style, and others have some harmonica by Buddy Lucas – in a raspy, hard-wailing mode that still fits in nicely with the jazzier style of the album. Jimmy's organ is right up front on most numbers – recorded with that full, dynamic sound that makes so many of his Verve albums a treasure – and the best numbers have a more contemporary 60s groove alongside the older bluesy roots. Grady Tate plays drums – surprisingly funky at times – and other players include Melba Liston and Tom McIntosh on trombones, Billy Butler on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on Fender bass, and Joe Newman on trumpet. Titles include "Hi Heel Sneakers", "TNT", "Boom Boom", "Ain't That Just Like A Woman", and "One Mint Julep". CD

Sonny StittKaleidoscope ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $5.99
A seminal set of Sonny Stitt recordings for Prestige – material that was originally issued on singles and 10" LPs, pulled together to make one classic album! The material here was recorded in 1951 and 1952, and shows Stitt at all of his prime youthful power – blowing beautifully with a razor-sharp tone, and a sense of improvisational imagination that few others could match! Sonny plays alto, tenor, and baritone – and other players include Joe Newman on trumpet, Kenny Drew or Junior Mance on piano, and Art Blakey on drums. Titles include "Cherokee", "Imagination", "Can't We Be Friends", "Liza", "Cool Mambo", "Sonny Sounds", and "Blue Mambo". LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah VaughanNo Count Sarah (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1958. Used ... $15.99
The title's a bit of a joke – because the record features a batch sidemen from the Count Basie band – Thad Jones, Joe Newman, Freddy Green, Billy Mitchell, Frank Foster, and others – all working with Sarah, but the Count's name is missing, due to contractual obligations! Despite that lack, though, the grooves are very much in the best Basie mode – full of soul and searing horn lines – at a level that makes the album one of Sarah's liveliest from the time! Players include Thad Jones and Joe Newman on trumpet, Al Grey on trombone, Frank Foster and Frank Wess on tenor, and Freddie Green on guitar – and Ronnell Bright handles the piano, instead of Basie. Titles include "Darn That Dream", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "Doodlin", "Just One Of Those Things", "No Count Blues", and "Missing You". CD

Larry WillisNew Kind Of Soul ... LP
LLP, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really killer set from pianist Larry Willis – way different than any of his later albums as a leader, and from his early work with Jackie McLean in the 60s! Larry's playing here with a sound that's as righteous as his image on the cover, but which is also pretty funky at points too – a small combo mode that's partly in a soul instrumental mode, partly with some of the soaring, more expressive qualities you'd find later on records for labels like Strata East or Black Jazz. The whole combo's wonderful – and includes the mighty Al Foster on drums and Vic Sproles on bass – two super-hip rhythm cats – alongside a tight flugelhorn frontline from the trio of Jimmy Owens, Marvin Stamm, and Joe Newman – and lots of sharp riffing guitar from Al Gava. The funky cuts are wonderful – and include a break version of Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle", and sweet covers of Andre Williams' "Funky Judge" and James Brown's "Lickin' Stick" – but original cuts are nice too, and include "Someday soon" and "Consola Coa".

✨✧ Al Cohn & Shorty RogersEast Coast – West Coast Scene ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic session in the tried and true marketing style of "East Coast vs West Coast" jazz, with one side of tracks by a group led by Al Cohn, and featuring Gene Quill, Hal McKusick, and Joe Newman. The other side's got Shorty Rogers representin' on the West Coast, with Jimmy Giuffre, Zoot Sims, Bud Shank, and Shelly Manne. The album's a nice batch of tracks, in the tightly arranged style that characterizes many of these mid-50's RCA jazz sessions. However, since Cohn's measured playing could never really be taken for New York Hot, and since his longtime partner Zoot Sims is part of Rogers' West Coast group, it's hard to say that these sides are really any sort of true battle between the coasts. Instead, though, the tracks are nice and long, with more room for solos than usual, and titles that include "Loki", "Cool Sunshine", and "Inside Out". CD

✨✧ Nat King ColeWelcome To The Club ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums by Nat King Cole – done with a bit more depth and feeling than some of his other Capitol sets of the time – and some great jazzy backings, too! Arrangements are by Dave Cavanaugh, but there's almost a Basie-like quality to the group at times – never too hard-swinging, but definitely that slow-burning quality the Count could hit so well with a singer, especially on the horns! The group is awash with Basie-ites – and saxes are by Marshall Royal, Frank Foster, Billy Mitchell, and Frank Wess; trumpets include Joe Newman and Thad Jones; trombones feature Al Grey, Henry Coker, and Benny Powell; and rhythm features guitar from Freddie Greene, piano from Gerald Wiggins, and drums from Sonny Payne – definitely a swinging lineup. Titles include the great "Welcome To The Club" – plus "Anytime Anyday Anywhere", "The Late Late Show", "Wee Baby Blues", "Avalon", "She's Funny That Way", and "The Blues Don't Care".

✨✧ Etta JonesEtta Jones Sings (Roulette) ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from jazz singer Etta Jones – an effort cut around the same time as her better-known records for Prestige, but one that's maybe done with an even hipper sound overall! Etta's nicely laidback, and hits that soulful, singing mood that makes her so great right from the start – a bit offbeat, but in the best way possible – as Jones brings older bluesy inflections into play with more contemporary ideas – all set to wonderful instrumentation from a cool group that features Junior Mance on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Joe Newman on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor, and Mike Manieri on vibes. The song choices are great – and the balance between steppers and mellow cuts is perfect – on titles that include "Swinging Shepherd Blues", "All Right OK You Win", "Moon Man", "Did I Remember", "Lonely Crowd", and "I Was Telling Him About You".
