New Kenny Barron & Buster WilliamsTwo As One ... CD CD format
Red (Italy), 1986. Used ... $9.99
A wonderful little date from pianist Kenny Barron – one that has him working in drumless duo mode, with only the bass of Buster Williams for accompaniment! The tunes are often quite long, and it's beautiful to hear the way Kenny stretches out on the keys – buoyed up warmly by Williams' trademark tone – basslines that are soft on bite, and round on sound – drenched with soul throughout, and creating a subtle pulse that the presence of a drum would only ruin! Barron has a wonderful way of being pensive at points, while still moving things forward strongly – and titles include "All Of You", "This Time The Dream's On Me", "I Love You", and "My Funny Valentine".

Kenny Barron & Dave HollandArt Of Conversation ... CD CD format
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A great title for this sublime set of duo material – work that features Kenny Barron on piano and Dave Holland on bass – with no other instrumentation at all! Barron's a player who's always expansive, no matter what the setting – but hearing him in spare formation like this, we really fall in love with his work all over again – his wonderfully rich command of the keyboard, inherent sense of rhythm, and strong ability to paint in musical colors that never fail to delight! Holland's a revelation, too – with well-crafted, yet spare basslines – able to deliver more with less, at a level that's quite different than Dave's earlier work, and really shows so much growth – especially on the mellower moments, where he really shapes the sound of the record. Titles include "The Oracle", "Waltz For Wheeler", "The Only One", "Rain", and "Seascape". CD

New Kenny BurrellIntroducing Kenny Burrell ... CD CD format
Blue Note, 1956. Used 2CD ... $14.99
The entirety of Kenny's first 3 sessions for Blue Note together on one 2 disc set. Arguably some of Kenny Burrell's best work! Unlike some of Kenny's other sessions, which hide his guitar in arrangements that are a bit too complicated – this one's a nicely stripped-down album that sets his hollow electric in a group with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Kenny Clarke on drums, and Candido on conga. The tracks are nicely laidback, and Kenny hits some nice deep grooves on cuts like "Fugue N Blues", "Takeela", and "Delilah". Plus, the album also includes a totally cool percussion-only track – "Rhythmorama", which is a duet between Kenny Clarke and Candido! This CD adds the entire session to include the album issued as Kenny Burrell Volume 2 which featured Frank Foster's tenor on numbers like "Moten Swin", "Cheeta" and Phinupi. K.B. Blues, an early 10" side that included the title track (with an alternate take also included here), "Nica's Dream" and "Out For Blood" with tenor man Hank Mobley, is also included. CD

New Kenny BurrellLaid Back ... CD CD format
Muse/Savoy, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $5.99
Obscure work from Kenny Burrell – material originally issued by Muse Records, most of it with a very laidback feel – as you'd guess from the title! The original sides were produced by Helen Keane, who'd done some of Bill Evans' greatest sets – and who had a real ear for the mellower side of the jazz spectrum. And for the record, she's got Kenny playing in a trio format that's very spacious – with only gentle accompaniment on bass and drums, and most of the sound on the set coming from the strings of Kenny's guitar. Following in the gentle spirit of the set, Kenny even plays an acoustic guitar on some numbers – making for a very different sound than usual. Some tracks are quite long, really letting Kenny open up on his solos – and titles include "So Little Time", "All Blues", "In A Mellow Tone", "In The Still Of The Night", "Tenderly", "Listen To The Dawn", and "You & The Night & The Music".

Kenny BurrellOut Of This World ... LP LP format
Prestige, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great little album by Burrell – one that has Ray Barretto on most cuts, giving the album a similar Latiny feel to his classic Midnight Blue album on Blue Note. The best part, though, is Coleman Hawkins, who plays tenor on 4 of the album's 7 tracks – 2 of which are bossa-tinged ditties, which sound like they're lifted right off of Ike Quebec's Soul Samba album. Rhythm is by Tommy Flanagan, Major Jolley, and Eddie Locke – and titles include "Tres Talbras", "Montono Blues", "Guilty", "No More", and "It's Getting Dark". Also issued as the album Bluesy Burrell.

Kenny BurrellTender Gender ... CD CD format
Cadet/Passion (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
Straight, strong, and soulful sounds from guitarist Kenny Burrell – quite possibly one of his best albums of the 60s, thanks to a really well-focused sound throughout! The groove here is nice and tight – a cooking little rhythm section that features Richard Wyands on piano, Martin Rivera on bass, and Oliver Jackson on drums – snapping away on the kit on some of the best tracks, and really helping Burrell to hit this groove that's mighty nice! Kenny seems to have a bit more bite than usual too – and even the laidback tunes have plenty going on to keep our ears happy. Titles include "La Petite Mambo", "Suzy", "The Tender Gender", "Girl Talk", "Isabella", "If Someone Had Told Me", and "Hot Bossa". CD

Kenny Burrell with Frank WessMonday Stroll (aka Opus In Swing) ... CD CD format
Savoy, 1957. Used ... $19.99
An expanded version of Opus In Swing – one of the greatest of the 50s Savoy "Opus" albums, and a loosely-done blowing session that's got a really unique feel! Instead of piano, the session features two guitarists – Kenny Burrell in lead and handling solos, and Freddie Greene comping in the background in a nicely rhythmic mode. Frank Wess plays flute throughout, and the mix of flute and two guitars is really wonderful – especially considering that the only other support they get here is from the bass of Eddie Jones and drums of Kenny Clarke. Tracks are all nice and long, and titles include "Wess Side", "East Wind", "Southern Exposure", and "Kansas City Side" – plus added tracks "Monday Stroll" and "Woolafunt's Lament". CD

Kenny Carter/The DynamicsYou'd Better Get Hip Girl/My Life Is No Better ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Kent (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $11.99
A great slow burner from Kenny Carter – a tune that builds up nicely from this blue-tinged bottom, and which has Carter's vocals rising proudly as the track moves on – almost in territory that recalls the best from Jerry Butler or Chuck Jackson! "My Life" is a nice contrast on the flipside – a more upbeat tune from The Dynamics, who offer some wonderful interplay between the lead vocals and harmonies! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A rare gem if you dig the Clarke Boland Big Band – a Czech recording from the late 60s, right during their MPS prime – and from what we can tell, this material wasn't issued on other albums! Soloists include Jimmy Deuchar, Benny Bailey, Idrees Sulieman, and Shake Keane on trumpets; Sahib Shihab on baritone, Ronnie Scott and Johnny Griffin on tenors, and Derek Humble on alto – and titles include "Funiculi Funicula", "Greensleeves", "Sabbath Message", "Old Stuff", "Tarantas Drive", "Sunday At Ten", and "Nights In Warsaw".

Kay Dee, 2014. New Copy 7 x 7 inch & Book ... $69.99
A totally great little package – one that has Kenny Dope going back to the original tapes used in the famous hip hop film Wild Style – then mixing down all the best bits to focus on the breaks! The original grooves were laid down by Fab 5 Fredy and Chris Stein – whose guitar brings a lot of unique funky elements to the music – and Kenny Dope really makes the best of it, and the set's arguably even greater than the original Wild Style record! Titles include "Military Cut", "Subway Beat", "Down By Law", "Crime Cut", "Gangbusters", "Meetings", "Baby Beat", "Yawning Beat", and "Razor Cut". Comes in a very cool 7" book-style package – like the Complete Motown Singles series, but vinyl – with seven individual funky 45s – plus a 28 page book with interviews and photos! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kenny DorhamQuiet Kenny (RVG remaster series) ... CD CD format
Prestige, 1959. Used ... $6.99
Kenny may be quiet, but he's never muted – and the record is far from the sleepy session you might guess from the title! The album's a real standout in the Dorham catalog – a set that let's Kenny's trumpet sparkle beautifully in a quartet that includes piano from Tommy Flanagan, bass from Paul Chambers, and drums from Art Taylor – all bringing their own spirit to the record, but really hanging back in the space to let Dorham's sound dominate the record. Kenny's notes are beautifully shaped throughout – in a mode that has echoes of Clifford Brown's sweetness, but which also speaks with a raspier, earthier tone overall! Titles include 2 key Dorham classics – "Lotus Blossom" and "Blue Spring" – plus "Mack The Knife", "My Ideal", "Blue Friday", and "Old Folks". CD

Geri AllenGeri Allen & Timeline Live ... CD CD format
Motema, 2010. Used ... $5.99
A very cool set from pianist Geri Allen – one of the most forceful, rhythmic albums we've heard from her in years – thanks to some very tight bass and drum work, and a bit of tap percussion too! The core trio grooving is already great – bass from Kenny Davis and drums from Kassa Overall – played with enough force to almost be funk at parts – but adding in the unusual sound of Maurice Chestnut's tap percussion makes for some more skittish moments, really complicating the rhythms in a great way. Titles include "The Western Wall/Soul Eyes", "Four By Five", "Philly Joe", "In Appreciation", "LWB's House", and "Embraceable You/Loverman". CD

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1992. New Copy ... $13.99
A hell of a trumpeter, with a hell of a group – heard here live at the Blue Note in New York, with a very open, freewheeling vibe! Franco Ambrosetti is a player who can sometimes be very much involved with the concept of a project – so much so that we sometimes forget that at the core, he's just a great jazz musician in an old school mode – one who's interacting here wonderfully with a group that includes Seamus Blake on tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, Ira Coleman on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums! The rhythm section is especially great – and really seems to set the right tone for the set – and the tracks are all quite long, and titles include "Phantoms", "Voyage", "Blues N Dues Et Cetera", and "Just Friends". CD features the bonus track "Franco's Delight". CD

Ernie AndrewsErnie Andrews Sings From The Heart ... LP LP format
Discovery, 1981. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Later work from Ernie Andrews – a singer we mostly know from his early 60s albums on Dot and Capitol – standout west coast jazz sets that marked Ernie as one of the real up-and-comers on that scene. The format here is a bit mellower than those records, but still pretty darn great – and overall, Ernie's singing with a bit more jazz inflection in his voice – really working the notes, especially on the mellower numbers – and getting some gentle backings from a group that includes Red Holloway, Buddy Collette, Harry Edison, and Kenny Burrell. Titles include "Again", "I Cover The Waterfront", "Please Let Me Forget", "There's Nothing Better To Do", and a version of Sam Dees' "One In A Million". LP, Vinyl record album

New BabyfaceLovers ... LP LP format
Solar/Epic, 1986. Very Good ... $1.99
The beginning of an empire! This was the first solo album cut by the now-famous Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds – cut after years of work in the music business that included stints in the groups Manchild and The Deele, and lots of production work for other LA soul acts. The record's kind of a rougher version of the modern R&B style that you'll know from Babyface's big hits of the early 90s – more in the style of some of the Solar Records acts of the early 80s, and some of the other big keyboard/bass pedal bands on the market at the time. The real contribution, though, is Kenny's ability to infuse the whole thing with soul – taking these tinny little tracks and making them come out kind of sweet, not only through his famous production, but through his faltering vocal style, which is about the most honest-sounding aspect of the record. Titles include "Lovers", "Marry Mack", "If We Try", "Take Your Time", and a cover of "You Make Me Feel Brand New". LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy/Denon (Japan), 1961. Used ... $14.99
Groundbreaking work from the modernist jazz team of Bill Barron and Ted Curson! The album's one of a few rare gems that Barron cut for the Savoy label early in his career – a mixture of Mingus-like angular jazz compositions, outfitted with a freer sense of soloing, and a deeply soulful phrasing overall. Barron and Curson are electric together, swapping lines and solos with amazing deftness – driving on tightly with rhythms by Kenny Barron, Jimmy Garrison, and Frankie Dunlop. Titles include "Blast Off", "Ode To An Earth Girl", "Fox Hunt", and "Oriental Impressions". CD

Will BernardJust Like Downtown ... CD CD format
Posi tone, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
The Posi-tone label is turning out to be one of the best sources for old school Hammond sessions these days – and this sweet set from guitarist Will Bernard is great proof of that fact! Bernard plays with a tight sense of line and color that really takes us back to some of our favorites from the 60s – like Grant Green or Kenny Burrell – and he's set up here alongside some excellent Hammond from Brian Charette, who has a great ear for mixing up playful phrasing and a more powerful groove – a bit like Jack McDuff on late 60s Prestige, but very much his own bag too! The group's also got tenor and bass clarinet from John Ellis, and drums from Rudy Royston – and titles include a cover of "Dancing Days", plus "Dime Store Thriller", "Go West", "Sweet Spot", "PM Gone", and "Route 46".

One of the best Eddie Bert albums of the 50s – an excellent set that captures the trombonist in 2 different modes! One half of the set features the cool side of Eddie's work – and has him blowing in quartet with Joe Puma on guitar, Clyde Lombari on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. The other half is harder, and more soulful – and features Eddie playing with JR Monterose on tenor, Hank Jones on piano, and the team of Lombardi and Clarke on rhythm. Tracks include "Conversation", "Crosstown", "Manhattan Suite", "Opicana", and "One For Tubby". CD

Andy & The Bey SistersRound Midnight (original pressing) ... LP LP format
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the rare few records recorded by a young Andy Bey and his sisters! The group was an obscure jazz harmony trio formed by Andy in his earlier years – and it features him on piano, joining with the vocals of his two sisters Salome and Geradine Bey – in a soulful, moody style that's unlike anything else we can think of! Their three heavenly voices are backed by Kenny Burrell's guitar, Milt Hinton's bass, and Osie Johnson's drums, and there's lots of room around the arrangments for the Beys to stretch out and sing beautifully. Includes a haunting arrangment of "Round Midnight", plus "God Bless The Child", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Solitude", and the "Love Medley". LP, Vinyl record album

Cindy BlackmanOracle ... CD CD format
Muse, 1995. New Copy ... $4.99
Cindy Blackman's one of those players who always surprises us with her music – coming across with a lot more to offer than just her unique role as a girl drummer in jazz – sounds so bold, we instantly forget her gender and pretty image on the cover, and always just let ourselves get swept away by the power of her music! This set is possibly one of Blackman's best from the Muse Records years – thanks to a top-shelf quartet that includes Gary Bartz on alto and soprano sax, Kenny Barron on piano, and Ron Carter on bass – a great trio even on their own, but given a nice sense of focus through Blackman's drums. As usual, Blackman penned some great originals for the date – and the setting is an especially nice one for Bartz, who's really given a lot of space for great solo work on the set. Titles include "The Oracle", "AJ", "Beatrice", "Traffic", "Why", "Our Blues", and "Who Needs Forever". CD
