Kenny BurrellAll Day Long ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the best blowing sessions on Prestige – and proof that Kenny Burrell could hit a nice groove when he wanted to! The record is a very open-ended set, and players include Burrell, Donald Byrd, Frank Foster, Tommy Flanagan, Doug Watkins, and Art Taylor. Side one features a great long track called "All Day Long", with loads of space and plenty of great soloing – a cut that is quite possibly THE blowing session tune from Prestige – as it's a perfect example of the label's work in that style, and one of the longest ever recorded in that format. Side two features shorter cuts "Slim Jim", "Say Listen", and "AT" – all a bit tighter, and still very nice! LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has wide masking tape on the spine, tape remnants on the seams, and adhesive residue on the front.)

Kenny BurrellGuitar Forms ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
Surprisingly wonderful work from Kenny! The album has Kenny's guitar set to arrangements by Gil Evans – who gives the session a modern edge that really sets it apart from other Burrell albums of the time. Kenny's freed to do his thing – wonderfully, we might add – and Gil paints these washes of sound, color, and tone with the help of hip players like Johnny Coles, Louis Mucci, Julius Watkins, Steve Lacy, Richie Kamuca, Elvin Jones, and Lee Konitz. Tracks include "Lotus Land", "Downstairs", "Moon & Sand", "Terrace Theme", "Greensleeves", and "Loie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kenny BurrellOde To 52nd Street ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Very Good ... $6.99
Less of the bop tribute that you might think – given the title – and more of a groovy batch of jazz tracks, with arrangements by Richard Evans, in the soulful bouncy style that was his best standard for mid 60s work at Chess! Evans' work is what really makes the record sparkle – and Kenny's soloing here in a Verve-ish mode, floating over the top of a variety of material, both mellow and upbeat. Side one features the extended "Suite For Guitar & Orchestra" – and side two features "I Want My Baby Back", "Soulero", "Con Alma", and "Blues Fuse". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Rare material from Gil Evans' short-lived time on Verve Records – recorded in the early 60s, but not issued until this obscure 70s album! The set features Evans at his sharpest and most modern for the time – right up their with his best Impulse Records dates too – and key soloists include Kenny Burrell on guitar, Phil Woods on alto sax, Johnny Coles on trumpet, and Wayne Shorter on tenor!

✨✧ Kenny BurrellEllington Is Forever Vol 2 ... LP
Fantasy, 1975. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A second volume of Duke Ellington material from Kenny Burrell – and like the first, an extremely fresh look at the tunes – given the way things change up throughout the sessions! The presentation here is nicely varied – not just a big band take on the Duke, nor some small combo musings – but instead a mixture of both, all with Burrell's guitar at the center, but also moving the spotlight to a host of other players along the way – including trombonist Quentin Jackson, trumpeters Snooky Young and Thad Jones, organist Jimmy Smith, and tenorists Joe Henderson and Jerome Richardson – all of whom add some surprisingly soulful currents to the set. Titles include "Jeep Is Jumpin", "Solitude", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Azure", "Just Squeeze Me", "Come Sunday", "Prelude To A Kiss", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", and "Orson".

Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great great stuff – and for some folks, THE album by Kenny Burrell! This classic set features the guitarist in a quintet with Stanley Turrentine on tenor, Major Holly on bass, Bill English on drums, and the great Ray Barretto on conga – a really great lineup that sparkles with soulful imagination, and moves with a very rhythmic groove – thanks to Ray's extra percussion contribution on the bottom! Burrell's guitar somehow seems a bit harder and grittier than ever – and titles include the classic groover "Chittlins Con Carne", an early jazz dance classic – plus "Soul Lament", "Wavy Gravy", and "Mule".

✨✧ Kenny BurrellNight Song ... LP
Verve, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great title for this one – as the album's got a cool, laidback groove that's very much in a "night song" mode! Arrangements are by Don Sebesky – in that warm and fluid mode he was bringing to some of his best CTI sides at the time – and they push Kenny a bit more than usual, as he stretches out over the larger arrangements with some really great solo work that dips, turns, and rolls with incredibly warm hues of sound. Kenny plays solo on 2 tracks, and with a smaller quartet on a few more – and titles include "Night Song", "Love You Madly", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Brother Where Are You?", "Nighthawk", and "Teach Me Tonight".

✨✧ Johnny HartmanI Just Dropped By To Say Hello ... LP
Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy Eckstine, taken down to more personal and fluid levels by Hartman – and recorded here with great small group baking that includes Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The vibe is very mellow, but never sloppy or sleepy – and titles include "Charade", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Stairway To the Stars", "Kiss & Run", "Our Time", "Don't You Know I Care", "If I'm Lucky", and "Don't Call It Love".

Milt JacksonBags & Flutes ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $16.99
Excellent late 50s work by Milt Jackson for Atlantic! Bags & Flutes is very much in the style of Milt's classic Savoy sides from the preceding couple of years – mixing together his jazzy vibes with light lilting solos on flute, either by Bobby Jaspar or Frank Wess, Milt's old compatriot from the Savoy sessions. Piano is by Tommy Flanagan or Hank Jones, and Kenny Burrell plays guitar on the whole album. Tracks include "Ghana", "Connie's Blues", "Sandy", "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" and "Bag's New Groove". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing, with deep groove.)

✨✧ Milt Jackson & Coleman HawkinsBean Bags ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good ... $16.99
A wonderful little record – a real standout in both the careers of Milt Jackson and Coleman Hawkins! The album captures Hawk during his great later years – that time when his sound was even more soulful and inventive than ever – with lots of odd modern undercurrents that really work nicely with the album's slight Latin inflections – a bit like those you might hear on some of Hawkins' Impulse Records material from the same generation. Milt Jackson's vibes are great too – chromatic and edgey, and set up with rhythm support from Kenny Burrell on guitar, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Eddie Jones on bass, and Connie Kay on drums. Titles include "Indian Blues", "Don't Take Your Love From Me", "Sandra's Blues", "Stuffy", and "Close Your Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

Budd JohnsonFrench Cookin' ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good ... $3.99
Groovy little record that has this funky tenor giant playing a bunch of tracks with a Frenchy feel to them. Budd's joined by Hank Jones on piano, plus Kenny Burrell on guitar, and a nice Latin rhythm section that includes Joe Venuto on vibes and marimba and Willie Rodriguez on percussion. The groove's even a bit more Latin than French, but you'll recognize some of the tracks as old Parisian standards, like "La Petite Valse", "Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", and "Je T'Aime". Budd wrote two originals, too, and this is a nice tidy little set, and one of his lesser known sessions from the early 60's. LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesBirth Of A Band Vol 2 ... LP
Mercury (Japan), Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
We've never seen an original pressing of "Volume 2" of this LP, so we're assuming this is a Japanese-only vinyl issue of outtakes from those sessions. The original side's a very swingin', very groovy early album from Quincy – a big band recording, but handled with soulful touches that really set it apart from the genre! The band is a great one all the way through, featuring solos by Zoot Sims, Sahib Shihab, Phil Woods, Clark Terry and Kenny Burrell. A number of tracks are in a soul jazz mode, others more straight ahead – 11 tracks in all, including "Moanin", "Daylie Double", "Syncopated Clock", "A Parisian Thoroughfare", "G'Wan Train" and "The Preacher". LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones, Jimmy McGriff, Jeremy Steig, & OthersJazz Wave Ltd On Tour – Volume 1 ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
An overlooked gem from end of 60s Blue Note – and a record that might easily be passed up because it's a collection of work by various artists! Don't, though, because the set's wonderful – and features some smoking live recordings from some of Blue Note's best talents of the 60s, including a few who had already left the label! Highlights include a great version of Edu Lobo's "Reza" – done by Jeremy Steig with a trio that includes Ron Carter and Louis Hayes, and which runs for over 12 minutes! Other nice ones include "Slow But Sure" by Jimmy McGriff, "Greensleeves" by Kenny Burrell, "Don't Get Sassy" by Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, and the "Finale" – which has Steig, Freddie Hubbard, Jimmy McGriff, and Burrell all soloing madly over a side-long number supported by the Jones/Lewis group!

Wynton KellyIt's All Right! ... LP
Verve, 1964. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A tight little groover from Wynton Kelly – one of a few mid 60s gems done for Verve in a style that's harder-hitting and more focused than some of Kelly's other work! The record's got an approach that's a bit pop, but plenty darn soulful too – a style that focuses the already-great Kelly approach to the keys, and brings it into territory explored by Ramsey Lewis and Ray Bryant – kicking up the rhythms with lots of playful touches, including extra guitar by Kenny Burrell and conga from Candido, and even an added steel band on one number! The record's got a few mellower ballads that recall the lyrical Kelly mode of the past – but most is upbeat and very grooving – with titles that include "South Seas", "Not A Tear", "It's All Right", "Kelly Roll", "Moving Up", and "Escapade".

✨✧ Della ReeseOne Of A Kind ... LP
Jazz A La Carte, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
An unusual set from Della Reese – an indie side from the late 70s, but also one of her hippest albums of the decade! The set's produced by Terry Gibbs, who really allows a relaxed feeling for the record – a laidback live approach that hits the same soulful vibe as Della's live work for ABC in the previous decade, but a bit looser overall. Players are all strong – and include Kenny Burrell on guitar, Bob Cooper on tenor, and Lou Levy on piano – who also handled the arrangements too. There's congas on most numbers, which gives the tunes a rolling, soulful kick – and titles include "Close To You", "Everybody's Blues", "I'm Old Fashioned", "Get Out Of Town", "Make Someone Happy", and "The Best Thing For You Is Me".

Jimmy SmithBack At The Chicken Shack ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Sealed ... $24.99
A partner album of sorts to Jimmy Smith's classic Midnight Special album – recorded during the same sessions as that one, and also featuring Stanley Turrentine on tenor and Kenny Burrell on guitar! The sound here is almost even more open and stretched out – with only 4 long tracks on the album, 2 on each side – all offering up plenty of room for Jimmy to hit the Hammond with that keenly imaginative approach to a solo he was showing at this time – a style that proved that the instrument could do a lot more than just make weird noises or pump up the rhythm. Turrentine's tenor more than matches Jimmy's solos for imagination – and titles include "When I Grow Too Old To Dream", "Messy Bessie", "Minor Chant", and "Back At The Chicken Shack". LP, Vinyl record album

Prime Jimmy Smith material from his earliest years at Blue Note – hidden here under some more modern 70s cover art! The work here is very much in the best long-blown, open-ended style of Smith's jam session sides for the label – and the album features Jimmy's Hammond in the company of two different groups – one with George Coleman on tenor, Lee Morgan on trumpet, and Curtis Fuller on trombone – the other with Lou Donaldson on alto, Tina Brooks on tenor, and Morgan on trumpet! Kenny Burrell plays guitar, and all tracks are nice and long, with plenty of room for solos! Titles include "Cherokee", "What Is This Thing Called Love", and "Confirmation". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithMidnight Special ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A perennial favorite in the Jimmy Smith catalog for Blue Note – and a smoking little set that has Jimmy's Hammond grooving nicely alongside tenor from Stanley Turrentine and guitar from Kenny Burrell! Only Donald Bailey's drums remain from Jimmy's regular trio, but that shift is fine, given the strength of the other players here – especially Turrentine, whose sharp-edged tenor is always a welcome sound on any date at this point in his career! The tunes are a fair bit more focused than some of Jimmy's Blue Note work of a few years before, but that focus is what makes it a classic – and the tracks are still nice and long, with titles that include "A Subtle One", "Jumpin The Blues", "Midnight Special", "One O'Clock Jump", and "Why Was I Born".

✨✧ Jimmy SmithSoftly As A Summer Breeze ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
Material recorded early in the Blue Note career of Jimmy Smith – but not issued until the mid 60s, and often overlooked at the time! The record's still in the spare trio mode of the early Jimmy Smith years – but is a bit lighter and more lyrical than before – a nice change from the harder tones of Jimmy's early trio records, and a hint and the expansive lines he'd take on later recordings! The lineup features mostly Kenny Burrell on guitar and Philly Joe Jones on drums – plus a few additional tracks that use Eddie McFadden on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums – and titles include "These Foolish Things", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "One For Philly Joe", and a nice version of Monk's "Hackensack".

Tommy Wolf/Fran LandesmanNervous Set ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A pretty darn great musical – even if you hate musicals! The Nervous Set was the work of songwriter Tommy Wolf and lyricist Fran Landesman – a team that's best known for their very hip 50s and 60s compositions, a number of which were sung by Jackie & Roy, Bob Dorough, and other underground intellectual jazz singers of the time. This musical's one of their greatest works together – a bit dated, sure, but also done with a freedom that lets them get wittier and more whimsical than on some of their straighter songs. Singers include Larry Hagman, Del Close, and Tani Seitz – and numbers include "Laught I Thought I'd Die", "Fun Life", "Party Song", "Night People", "How Do You Like Your Love", and "The Ballad Of The Sad Young Men". Jazz group on the set includes Kenny Burrell! LP, Vinyl record album

Leo WrightSuddenly The Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good ... $11.99
A record of incredible beauty from the great Leo Wright – and one that we'd never part with at all! Wright's one of those excellent players from the 60s who never really gets his due – largely because he was always hiding behind larger groups, and because he left the US in the decade for an extended stint in Europe. Still he cut some fantastic early work with both Dizzy Gillespie and Lalo Schifrin – and this album captures him right during the peak of that early period! The record features light lively backing from a quartet that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and some tracks have a beautifully groovy sound that's slightly bossa, slightly soul jazz. One of the best of these is Wright's great cover of "A Felicidade", but the record contains many other great moments, like "The Wiggler", "Tali", "Sassy Lady", and "Dionysis". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMod Jazz ... LP
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
One of our favorite compilations of all time – a smoking batch of soulful jazz from the 60s, with a slight bit of funk and blues thrown in as well! The set's exactly what's promised in the title – jazz cuts, but with an ultra-cool mod vibe – the kind of soulful sounds that played big with the younger London crowd digging American music in the mid 60s – and also the kind of music you'd be likely to find blasting out of a backroom jukebox on the west side of Chicago! There's loads of rare single mixes of LP tracks on the set, and a number of smoking 45s from artists you might know better from more mainstream work – really hitting hard here, alongside a few special numbers from the indie underground too. Tracks are cool enough for old school hipsters – but appealing enough to bring in a new listener too – and as proof of that, we've given this one away for many years as a Christmas present. The collection features 25 tracks in all – non-stop pleasure throughout – with titles that include "Soul Shoutin" by Shirley Scott, "Tengo Tango" by Cannonball Adderley Sextet, "Whip It On Me" by Billy Hawks, "Yeh Yeh" by Mongo Santamaria, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, "I'm Ready" by Otis Spann, "Mama Rufus" by Merced Blue Notes, "Theme From NYPD" by Johnny Hammond, "Step Out & Get It" by The Nomos, "Why Don't You Do Right" by Mark Murphy, "Collard Greens" by Freddie McCoy, "Theme From The Carpetbaggers" by Jack McDuff, "Filthy McNasty" by Eddie Jefferson, "Evil Ways" by Cal Tjader, "Kenny's Theme" by Kenny Burrell, and "Games" by Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones.

✨✧ Ed ThigpenOut Of The Storm ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of THE greatest Verve albums of the 60s – an incredible set that's one of the few older records made as a leader by drummer Ed Thigpen! The sound here is incredibly hard to describe – a light mix of guitar from Kenny Burrell, piano from Herbie Hancock, and trumpet from Clark Terry – all dancing along in a spare, breezy, and highly rhythmical way – while Thigpen himself works the drum kit in this breezy, lyrical, and almost melody-driven way! The album's strongly modern in thinking, but also still nicely swinging, and with a warmth that grabs the listener right away. Titles include "Heritage", "Elbow & Mouth", "Struttin With Some Barbecue", "Cielito Lindo", and "Out Of The Storm". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chet BakerChet – Stereo – The Lyrical Trumpet Of Chet Baker ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of a handful of late 50s albums that Chet Baker recorded for Riverside – all of which are some of his last great 50s work in the studio, before a shift in the 60s to a wider-ranging approach to his music! The style here is definitely in the "classic" Baker mode set down for Pacific Jazz – but a bit more fleshed out by the other players in the set – who seem to push a bit more personality into the tunes, and not just let Chet's trumpet dominate. The sound is soft and gentle – as you'd expect from the title – and other players include Bill Evans, Pepper Adams, Kenny Burrell, Paul Chambers, Connie Kay and Philly Joe Jones – all bringing a bit of a New York undercurrent to the west coast Baker solo style. Titles include "How High the Moon", "It Never Entered My Mind", "If You Could See Me Now", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Time On My Hands", and "You And The Night And Music". LP, Vinyl record album
