Kenny BarronConcentric Circles ... CD
Blue Note, 2018. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
One of the things we really love about a Kenny Barron album with horns – and there's a lot of them – is that when Kenny works with horn players, he always lets their voices ring out as strongly as his in the lead – and maybe even more strongly overall! That's definitely the case here, on a crackling Blue Note set – one that has Barron's piano situated beautifully with the saxophone work of Dayna Stephens and the trumpet and flugelhorn of Mike Rodriguez – the latter of whom really shapes the set with his fluid sense of soul! The rhythm team is great, too – with Kiyoshi Kitagawa on bass and Johnathan Blake on drums – both getting that rolling Barron sense of modal energy just right – on titles that include "In The Dark", "Baile", "DPW", "Concentric Circles", "Blue Waters", and "Short Journey" – plus a version of Caetano Veloso's "Aquele Frevo Axe".

Kenny BarronKenny Barron At The Piano ... CD
Xanadu/Prevue, 1981. Used ... $24.99
One of the best solo albums ever recorded by the great Kenny Barron – a set with so much life, so much cover, you really don't need any other instruments at all! Kenny's at a key point in his career here – really stretching out as an individual talent, and getting plenty of room to work on this beautifully-recorded grand piano – whose tones ring out with this soulful, majestic quality that seems to only amplify the genius that Barron brings to the keys! And while there's certainly been other Kenny Barron solo albums over the years – including some great dates from overseas – there's a power and confidence here that's somewhat missing from the rest – this righteous, commanding style that's almost like Stanley Cowell in a similar setting, but more lyrical too. Titles include "Bud-Like", "Calypso", "Body & Soul", "Enchanted Flower", "Star Crossed Lovers", and "Misterioso". CD

✨✧ Kenny BarronScratch (with bonus track) ... CD
Enja/Solid (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $13.99
A slightly more aggressive trio session than usual for Kenny Barron – still done with that round, warm tone on the keys that we love so much – but hitting the tracks with a stronger punch that's a bit unusual, and which might be the result of using Dave Holland and Daniel Humair as part of the trio! All but one of the tunes on the set are original numbers, and there's a mix of Monkish and modern modes sitting next to some more traditional Barron approaches to the piano. Kenny really takes off at some points – playing fast, free, and with incredible intensity – and titles include "Scratch", "Water Lily", "Quiet Times", "The Third Eye", "And Then Again", and "Song For Abdullah". Includes the bonus track "Jacob's Ladder". CD

Jerry Bergonzi, Bobby Watson, Kenny Barron, et alRed Records All Stars – Together Again For The First Time ... CD
Red (Italy), 1996. Used ... $11.99
Killer work from a group of American players who've all found a strong outlet for their talents on the Red Records label – an Italian company, but one that's really done a great job of keeping the fires going for players who sometimes don't get as much of a chance to record in the US! Every member of the group here is great – Jerry Bergonzi on tenor, Bobby Watson on alto and soprano, Kenny Barron on piano, Victor Lewis on drums, and either Curtis Lundy or David Finck on bass. The tunes are mostly originals by group members, which further makes the set sparkle – giving it a sense of originality that's quite different than the usual standards that seem to come up on other all-star sessions. Watson's horns, as always, are great – and Bergonzi's deeper tones provide a great sense of balance – all warmed up nicely by Barron's piano. Titles include "That's All Folks", "Look At You", "Out House", "De Voyeur A Voyeur", "Those Who Get From Having Not", "Out Of The Frying Pan", and "Free Movement". CD

Pedro Biker with Kenny Drew & Sahib ShihabSong Is You ... LP
Fontana (Denmark), 1966. Near Mint- ... $48.99
An amazing vocal album from the European scene of the 60s – sung by Pedro Biker with a sound that's a fair bit like Mark Murphy at the time – and which is supported by amazing arrangements from pianist Kenny Drew! The sound here is really bold and strong – often modal and soulfully soaring – with a quality that matches some of the best MPS/Saba vocal sessions of the time, particularly Mark Murphy's classic Midnight Mood. And like that album, there's almost an equal weight here to the soloists in the group – so that Sahib Shihab gets in some great work on alto sax, alongside Allan Botschinsky on flugelhorn and Palle Mikkelborg on trumpet. Drew's arrangements are the real revelation, though – filled with dynamic energy that he wasn't even bringing to his own work this well – and really blending a soulful focus with a freewheeling sense of energy – at a level that reminds us a fair bit of the Clarke Boland Big Band! Titles include "The Song Is You", "Fly Me To The Moon", "Wives & Lovers", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Day In Day Out", "Satin Doll", and "Let's Face The Music & Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny BurrellBlue Lights Vol 2 ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $7.99
Some of Kenny Burrell's best early work! The album catches Kenny in the perfect Blue Note jam session mode of the late 50s – which features a number of the label's star players hitting hard with the main soloist. Players on the two volume set include Duke Jordan or Bobby Timmons piano, Junior Cook and Tina Brooks tenor, Louis Smith trumpet, and Art Blakey on Drums. The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings. Titles on this volume include "Rock Salt", "Chuckin", and "Caravan". CD

Verve/Universal, 1967. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A really sweet little album from guitarist Kenny Burrell – one in which he takes older tunes ("a generation ago"), and updates them with a sweetly compressed Verve 60s groove ("today"!) The record features 2 small groups – one with Ron Carter on bass, Grady Tate on drums, and Phil Woods on some mighty nice alto sax – and another with Carter, Tate, and the great Richard Wyands on piano. The style is light, laidback, and recorded with a warm tone overall – in a mode that's almost a precursor to the CTI sound of the late 60s. Mike Maineri joins on vibes on one track – and titles include "Wholly Cats", "Rose Room", "As Long As I Live", and "A Smooth One". CD

CTI, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A stone classic from Kenny Burrell – a record that brought the guitarist to a whole new audience, with a wonderful sound that's a perfect summation of CTI at its best! The vibe here is perfect – spare, airy guitar lines from Burrell – playing with a freer style than usual, although with all of the deep soul of before – in ways that are a bit like the early Wes Montgomery material for CTI, but taken to the next level with a more sophisticated set of backdrops too! Don Sebesky handled arrangements, Freddie Hubbard solos alongside Kenny, and many track shave some mighty nice electric piano, too. Titles include funky track "Love Is The Answer", and mellower tunes "Child Is Born", "Do What You Gotta Do", and "Be Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note (Japan), 1957. Near Mint- ... $69.99
A real hard-burner from Kenny Burrell – a set that was recorded for Blue Note in the guitarist's early career, but not issued by the label until the 70s – and even then only in Japan! Kenny's got the sharp edge and strong sense of leadership you'll hear on his classic Midnight Blue – and the lineup features strong tenor work from Hank Mobley, who seems to underscore the best elements in Burrell's tone – plus work from Horace Silver on piano – who plays with lots of soulful undercurrents, alongside Doug Watkins on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums! The record's got some slightly raspy edges, which may be why Blue Note originally held it back – but it's a real treasure for the deeper side of Kenny's tones – and titles include "Out For Blood", "Nica's Dream", "KB Blues", and "DB Blues".

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 BurrellMoten Swing! – Columbia Records Instrumental Recordings 1961 to 1962 ... CD
Columbia/Euphoria, Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Some of the rarest work ever recorded by guitarist Kenny Burrell – his early 60s instrumental sides for Columbia Records! Kenny only really cut 2 LPs for Columbia at the time – the instrumental album Blusin Around, and the stranger set Weaver Of Dreams, which actually features Kenny on vocals (one of his few albums of the sort.) The set here resurrects Kenny's Columbia work as a musician – by compiling tracks from the Blusin Around album, plus 9 more titles that have never been issued before, but were recorded at the time! Kenny's playing here in nicely laidback settings – small groups that include players like Hank Jones, Illinois Jacquet, Eddie Bert, Jack McDuff, and Leo Wright – a total of 18 tracks in all that represent a strong body of lost work. Titles include "The Switch", "Mambo Twist", "One Mint Julep", "Funk Junction", "Getting In The Groove", "Bluesin Around", "How Could You", and "Opus 21". CD

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

Grover Washington Jr on Blue Note – but sounding really great here in the company of guitarist Kenny Burrell – very much back to the more basic reed work of his roots, and away from some of the smoother settings of his bigger dates from a few years before! Kenny's well-crafted guitar lines really direct the set – spinning out with energy and soul, and shaping the sound in tones that work especially well with Washington's soprano sax lines. The rest of the group features Ron Carter on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – and titles include "Togethering", "Daydream", "Sails Of Your Soul", "Soulero", and "What Am I Here For".

A surprisingly great meeting between Kenny Burrell and Jimmy Smith – and a set that's one of Jimmy's standout small combo sessions for Verve! The feel here is much more Jimmy Smith at Blue Note than some of the bigger group Verve dates of the 60s – and Kenny Burrell's sensitive guitar lines provide wonderful company for Smith on the date – shading in his Hammond lines with a nice sense of color, in ways that really fit the late nite setting of the record. Other players on the date include either Bill English or Mel Lewis on drums, George Duvivier or Milt Hinton on bass, Vince Gambella on guitar, and Art Marotti on percussion – and titles include "Kenny's Sound", "Blues For Del", "Blue Bash", "Travelin", and "Soft Winds".

An excellent hardbop session from the glory days of the Savoy label – easily one of the label's key 50s classics!

The Adderley brothers sound especially great – and the young Cannonball has a quality here that's more soulful and sharp-edged than his work on Mercury – much more in a Prestige blowing session style!

American jazzmen, playing in Paris – and working in the sort of all-star jam session mode you'd know from the Jazz At The Philharmonic recordings of the 50s! The format here is similar – some key players, in modes that run from swing to bop to more modern jazz – all brought together in an amazing display of spontaneous dexterity and individual imagination! This CD marks the first time this music has ever been issued, and the recording quality is great – really at a level that matches the best of those older Verve concerts – and the group is an unusual septet, with Lee Konitz on alto, JJ Johnson and Kai Winding on trombones, Phineas Newborn and Red Garland on pianos, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. Titles include nice open takes of "Dahoud", "Afternoon In Paris", "Stardust", "This Can't Be Love", "Bernie's Tune", "Bag's Groove", "It's Alright With Me", "Laverne Walk", "Blue Lou", and "Star Eyes".

A fantastic bit of lost hardbop – an obscure ABC album that has Kenny Dorham working with his Jazz Prophets group! The combo's a quintet with a unique lineup that includes Dick Katz on piano, JR Monterose on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and the whole set's got an open-ended sort of approach that's much more like albums of the time on Blue Note or Savoy than it is the usually more staid ABC jazz sides of the 50s! Monterose and Dorham are fantastic, and really open up on the 5 tracks on the album – all of which are long enough to give the players plenty of room to blow. Probably one of the best jazz records ever recorded for ABC – with titles that include "The Prophet", "DX", "Tahitian Suite", and "Blues Elegante". CD

The album's not exactly experimental, but it features longer tracks with a looser approach than some of Dorham's sweeter shorter work – more in a rhythmically progressive mode that lets the soloists carve out their own space in the set. Joe Henderson joins Kenny on the frontline, and the rest of the group includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Albert Heath on drums. All titles are originals, with some great modernist inflections, especially in the changes – and titles include "The Fox", "Mamacita", "Tropeta Toccata", and "Night Watch". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most soulful sets we've heard from Kenny Garrett in years – thanks partly to the presence of Pharoah Sanders in his group! The tracks are all long and open, and really let both Garrett and Sanders get in plenty of solo space – often in ways that are a nice change from previous recordings.

Other players include Benito Gonzalez on piano and Fender Rhodes, Nat Reeves on bass, and Jamire Williams on drums – and titles include "The Ring", "Intro To Africa", "Wayne's Thang", and "Happy People".

James Moody with Kenny BarronFly Me To The Moon (Comin' On Strong/Another Bag) ... CD
Cadet/Lonehill (Spain), 1962/1963. Used ... $11.99
Two tremendous early 60s sessions from James Moody – both recorded for Argo Records, and both featuring a young Kenny Barron on piano! First up is Comin On Strong – a prime Argo gem from James Moody – and key proof that when he wanted to, he could be one of the hippest cats working in 60s jazz! The approach here is subtle, but amazing – a blend of hardbop with some of the more modern ideas that were coming up in the post-bop generation from the team of Moody and Dizzy Gillespie. The rhythms are quite complicated at times – very fresh and vibrant, but without any of the easy gimmicks that other 60s artists would fall into – like vamping soul jazz or borrowed bossa lines. Instead, working in a combo with a young Kenny Barron, Moody concentrates on fresh timings and complicated changes – modes that push his own work on alto, tenor, and flute far from expected territory – and which also features Barron on piano and organ, George Eskridge on guitar, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums. Tracks include "Zanzibar", "Dizzy", "Ole", "Sonnymoon For Two", and a nice version of "Fly Me To The Moon". Another Bag is hip, angular, post-bop material from James Moody – the kind of album that made him one of the key soul jazz innovators of the 60s! The session's one of Moody's excellent outings with arranger Tom McIntosh – a young talent who helped re-shape Moody's musical vision with his deeply colorful arrangements – penned here for a smallish group, but still breaking out with deeper tones than Moody had ever expressed before on record! Tunes are a wonderful mix of modal, soul jazz, and more introspective tunes – played by James on both flute and tenor, alongside hip players that include Kenny Barron on piano, Paul Serrano on trumpet, Marshall Thompson on drums, Ernest Outlaw on bass, and John Avant on trombone. Titles include some excellent McIntosh originals – like "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "Minuet In G", and "Ally" – plus equally-fresh tunes "Spastic" and "Pleyel D'Jaime". CD

Kenny RankinColumbia US Singles 1963 to 1966 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia (Japan), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A stunning early chapter in the career of singer/songwrtiter Kenny Rankin – an artist who'd later break big with a unique mix of jazz and folk, but who already sounds pretty amazing on these early singles recorded for Columbia Records! We'll be honest, we didn't even know about this part of Kenny's career until this set – we first fell in love with his early albums on Mercury in the late 60s – but the set here is completely revelatory, and shows a whole new side of the Rankin genius that should have been huge! Kenny sings a fair bit of original material on the set – and the songs are already very unique – with echoes of jazz, maybe a bit of bossa, some more mainstream phrasing, and definite currents of folk when Rankin plays acoustic guitar. Most tracks were produced by Robert Mersey, some with a slight uptown soul current – and two were produced by Dion, in his hipper, folksier mode – but it's clear right from the start that Kenny's a star that can shine more than brightly enough on its own. Titles include early versions of "In The Name Of Love" and "Haven't We Met" – plus "Don't Go To Strangers", "Come On & Be My Love", "US Mail", "There'll Be No Other Love For Me", "Baby Goodbye", and "Soft Guitar".

Spare and beautiful duets between saxophonist George Robert and pianist Kenny Barron – done without any additional instrumentation, and in a way that brings out the most lyrical side of Kenny's playing! Robert plays both alto and soprano saxophone here – often with a focused, well-bitten sound that's a sharp contrast to Barron's warmer sound on the keys – and as the tunes progress they both take advantage of the open space to break down the rhythm a bit, and find a good place to interact. Titles include "Peace", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "Soul Eyes", "Round Midnight", "Day In Paris", and "Song For Abdullah". CD

Two Shirley Scott classics – back to back on a single CD! First up is Travelin Light. Kenny Burrell joins the trio of organist Shirley Scott for this sweet little album – a set that seems to burn a bit more than usual for Shirley, probably because of the cool-toned guitar lines from Kenny! The album's got the same laid back feel as other Scott albums of the time, but Burrell really digs in during his solos – adding a bit more bite, and inspiring Shirley to do the same on her own Hammond lines. Bass is by Eddie Khan and drums are by Otis Finch – and titles include "Solar", "The Kerry Dance", "They Call It Stormy Monday", "Nice N Easy", and "Baby It's Cold Outside". Next up is Soul Sister – a record that has Shirley Scott getting some mighty cool help from vibist Lem Winchester – a player whose tones always make a session worth checking out! Lem's got a nicely punctuated feel to his vibes on the record – a tight, short punch that works beautifully alongside Scott's fluid Hammond lines – almost enough on their own, even without the rhythm help of George Duvivier on bass and Art Edgehill on drums. Tracks include "Blues For Tyrone", "The More I See You", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Like Young", and "Sonnymoon For Two". Also includes the bonus track "Now's The Time", recorded at the same session. CD

Frank Wess, Kenny Burrell, Joe Newman & OthersJazz For Playboys (with bonus track) ... CD
Savoy/Atlantic, 1957. Used ... $13.99
One of those classic 50s sessions in which a bunch of Count Basie players split off from the bigger group and do some great small combo work on their own! The album is leader-less in its billing – but only because all the players are so well tuned to each other, and have such a simpatico relationship that there's no need for egos to drive the record. Tracks are longish and more open than any Basie setting – and players include Frank Wess on flute and tenor, Kenny Burrell on solo guitar, Freddie Green on rhythm guitar, and Joe Newman on trumpet. Wess' solos are often out in the lead, but Burrell and Newman also get in some nice licks – and titles include "Pin Up", "Playboy", "Miss Blues", and "Blues For A Playmate". CD also features a great alternate take – a 7 minute version of "Southern Exposure", one of Wess' best tunes! CD

Prestige, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

The record's got an open-ended jam session feel – Kenny listed as the leader, but playing in a laidback setting with Cecil Payne on baritone, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The album's long tracks move along at a soulful pace, letting in a lot of room for solo work – especially from Burrell and Payne, who never sounded better!

One of our favorite albums ever from the great guitarist Kenny Burrell – a smoking live session, and one that's got a bit more of an edge than some of his other records from the time! Kenny's guitar still has that impeccable tone throughout – but it's also matched by some wonderful tenor from the great Tina Brooks – making one of his few key Blue Note appearances here – in a massively cooking group that also features some piano from Bobby Timmons on three of the album's five tracks (Roland Hanna plays on the two others) – plus drums from Art Blakey, and bass from Ben Tucker – a pair wo work together wonderfully to create some really great grooves. Kenny himself seems to pick up great energy in the setting – and titles include "Lady Be Good", "Birk's Works", "36-23-36", and "Hallelujah". CD

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".

The set features material from the albums Jazz Contrasts, Two Horns/Two Rhythms, Blue Spring, and This Is The Moment – plus one track from Abbey Lincoln's album That's Him. The focus is largely on Dorham's sweeter moments, and the set features a host of great original compositions by him, including "Poetic", "Spring Cannon", "La Villa", and "Blue Spring".

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 Shuffle" – plus "Mack The Knife", "My Ideal", "Blue Friday", and "Old Folks". CD

And if you're not bothered by a copycat set, the record's a nice one – and was done with a Memphis sound that's still very firmly in place at the end of the 70s.

One of the greatest albums ever by pianist Kenny Drew – a record that's as noteworthy for the contributions of the sidemen as it is for the efforts of the leader! Drew's a player who often worked mostly in trio formats – but here, he's hitting hard with a righteous Blue Note power – thanks to the presence of Hank Mobley on tenor and Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, both of whom really give the record an edge! Drew's lyrical sensibilities are shifted to darker, more modern moments at times – and the rest of the group features Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. An essential addition to the Blue Note legacy of Mobley and Hubbard – and the set's filled with original tunes by Kenny, including "The Pot's On", "Undercurrent", "Funk-Cosity", and "Lion's Den". CD

The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings.

The album's a classic Prestige Records jam session from the late 50s – one that features Kenny Burrell on guitar, Thad Jones on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor and flute, Mal Waldron on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all players who've got a great ear for material for this, and who really make the session their own when they get a chance! Though Burrell's name got top billing on subsequent issues of this album, and his playing is wonderful, Waldron's the great unsung hero of these sessions, as his playing's consistently remarkable, providing great accompaniment for the horn players.

The group features Dorham at his most modern – those sharp lines and really creative constructions that you'd hear during his best years at Blue Note, on classics like Trompeta Toccata and Whistle Stop – the kind of forward-thinking, groundbreaking records that made Dorham one of the most individual trumpet players of his generation! And while Kenny's conception is key to the album, thanks also goes to the great lineup of players, too – a hip quintet that includes Joe Henderson on tenor, Ronnie Matthews on piano, Steve Davis on bass, and JC Moses on drums.

Monterose and Dorham are fantastic, and really open up on the 5 tracks on the album – all of which are long enough to give the players plenty of room to blow.

SSJ (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare live appearance from the great Hank Mobley – a player who wasn't always that present on the European scene, but is heard here in a strong Copenhagen concert with pianist Kenny Drew! The format's a bit similar to other American tenor dates of the time – especially those of Dexter Gordon – as Drew's trio – with Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Albert Heath on drums – provides a solid rhythmic groove while Mobley really stretches out with long-spun solos on some extended tracks! The format's very different than most other recordings that Hank made in the 60s – especially during these later years – and although the date has a bit of a "broadcast" quality from the way it was recorded, Mobley's tenor shines through on long readings of "Summertime", "Workout", "Blue Bossa", and "Alone Together".

Columbia (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning early chapter in the career of singer/songwrtiter Kenny Rankin – an artist who'd later break big with a unique mix of jazz and folk, but who already sounds pretty amazing on these early singles recorded for Columbia Records! We'll be honest, we didn't even know about this part of Kenny's career until this set – we first fell in love with his early albums on Mercury in the late 60s – but the set here is completely revelatory, and shows a whole new side of the Rankin genius that should have been huge! Kenny sings a fair bit of original material on the set – and the songs are already very unique – with echoes of jazz, maybe a bit of bossa, some more mainstream phrasing, and definite currents of folk when Rankin plays acoustic guitar. Most tracks were produced by Robert Mersey, some with a slight uptown soul current – and two were produced by Dion, in his hipper, folksier mode – but it's clear right from the start that Kenny's a star that can shine more than brightly enough on its own. Titles include early versions of "In The Name Of Love" and "Haven't We Met" – plus "Don't Go To Strangers", "Come On & Be My Love", "US Mail", "There'll Be No Other Love For Me", "Baby Goodbye", and "Soft Guitar".

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".

The set was cut for the short-lived Jaro label, home to a few great jazz sides during its short-lived American tenure – and the set features Kenny grooving at a level that's extremely tight, very much in the best spirit of his work for Blue Note or Prestige – and recorded here with equally top-shelf sound! The record shows Kenny at his lyrical best – working alongside the piano of Tommy Flangan, who really helps enforce this side of his music – and also getting some help from Charles Davis on baritone, who brings in some darker edges to the record. Other players include Butch Warren on bass and Buddy Enlow on drums – on tracks that include the original entitled "Stage West", plus another sweet tune by Davis entitled "Turbo" – as well as the numbers "Butch's Blues", "Six Bits", and "Stella By Starlight".

Kuhn and Davis really bring some interesting elements to the record – and titles include "Tonica", "Monk's Mood", "In Your Own Sweet Way", and "Horn Salute".

Side two features the same group, but also adds in some work on harp by Betty Glamman – an unusual player, but one who works well in the setting – and really helps to emphasize the sweeter sounds in Kenny's horn!

Kenny comes from a world that might be more blues than soul, but there's definitely a lot of southern soul styles at play on this set – from Kenny's great vocal leads, right down to the sweet combo backing, which even includes some organ and saxes from St Louis legend Oliver Sain! About half the album's got more of a blues vibe than a soul one – but even those sounds are recorded at a level that's more like you'd hear from a 70s indie than a contemporary label – and Rice's own drums help kick lots of the tunes into headier soul territory, and create this wider-ranging vibe that certainly lives up to the house party spirit promised on the cover. Titles include "I Wanna Satisfy You Baby", "Big Blue", "Back Street", "Pink Champagne", "Honky Tonk", "I'm Tore Up", "Oh Yes It's You", and "Hard Working Man" – plus a very cool take on Horace Silver's "Liberated Brother".

Storyville (Denmark), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the jazz drummer Kenny Washington, but a singer with the same name – really stretching out nicely here in a live set recorded in Copenhagen! Kenny's got a warm glow to his style, which gets a nice edge on the long performances here – recorded with an overseas trio that features piano by Jacob Christoffersen – a group with a strong swing that really seems to inspire Washington's vocals, especially when he takes off with a bit of improvisation. Titles include "Moanin", "Sittin On The Dock Of The Bay", "I Got It Bad & That Ain't Good", "What Is This Thing Called Love", and "Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans". CD

✨✧ Kenny WellingtonFree Spirit ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album from trumpeter Kenny Wellington – one that shows us that the 70s spirit of artists like Roy Ayers and the Mizell Brothers is alive and well – as long as you know where to look! The record's contemporary, but has a really classic blend of jazz and soul – one that still allows plenty of space for Kenny's soaring solo work, but also has a wonderful focus on sharp rhythms and a righteous overall sound! The balance is no surprise – given that Kenny's got a legacy that goes back to classic work in the groups Central Line, Light Of The World, and Beggar & Co – but this album's way deeper and more powerful than anything Washington gave us back in the day – and features some especially nice work on vocals, by a quartet that's headed up by Augie Johnson, who brings in a vibe that's similar to his music with Side Effect and the LA Boppers. The whole thing's wonderful – righter than most folks sound when they go for a groove like this – and titles include "Heading Home", "Dreaming Of Futures Bright", "Fat Cherry", "Kings For A Day Masters Of The Night", "You Can Run", "E3 Symphony", and "Miles 2 Go".

John JenkinsJohn Jenkins With Kenny Burrell (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... $16.99
The great John Jenkins was one of the lesser-known sax stars to come out of the Chicago scene of the late 50s – but he was also one of the best! Jenkins played alto impeccably – with boppish agility, and a deep sense of soul that worked great on this one and only Blue Note session as a leader. The group features Kenny Burrell playing some of his best work on record – and the rhythm section features Sonny Clark on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums – playing in a rare non-Mingus appearance! Tracks include "Motif", "Sharon", "Blues For Two", and "Chalumeau" – and the session is a wonderful bit of lost Blue Note – great sharp edges from Jenkins' alto, and some warmer, rounder tones from Burrell on guitar. CD also features 2 bonus alternate takes. CD

✨✧ VariousL'Anthologie Caveau De La Huchette 1965 to 2017 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A tribute to a legendary Parisian jazz club that's been making music from the late 40s onward – a venue that supposedly inspired the famous Cavern of Beatles/Liverpool fame – and one that's still going strong well into the 21st Century! The collection features the kind of jazz that's played often at Caveau De La Huchette – tracks recorded from the mid 60s onward, as you'd guess from the title – but done in styles that are much earlier overall – small combo swing, mid century jazz, boogie woogie, and even some bluesier modes – all brought together in the strong Fremeaux mode, with a huge amount of tracks on 3CDs, and detailed notes as well. The package features 53 tracks in all – and titles include "Hello Dolly" by Nancy Holloway, "Indiana" by Wild Bill Davis and Kenny Clarke, "Cette Sacre Tele" by Mac Kac and Dany Doriz, "Magic Swing" by Steamboat Band, "You Rascal You"b y Maurey Richards and Sweet Screamin Jones, "Dans Les Rues D'Antibes" by Manu Dibango, "Un Scotch Un Bourbon Un Biere" by Zanini, "Memories Of You" by Bob Wilber and Georges Arvanitas, "Shake Rattle & Roll" by Memphis Slim and Michel Denis, "It's A Low Down Dirty Shame" by Drew Davies, and "Shut Up" by Philippe Petite and Friends.

✨✧ VariousMemphis Rockabillies, Hillbillies, & Honky Tonkers Vol 6 ... CD
Stomper Time (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Memphis sounds that go way past the usual – not some of the oft-reissued rockabilly of the late 50s, but instead some really rare work from the following decade – when a host of small indie labels were still going strong, and turning out a huge array of Tennessee talent! The groove here is maybe that post-rockabilly moment when some artists when back to hillibilly styles – the kind of harder-edge cuts that weren't hitting the charts as much as the lush production of big label country tunes – but which showed that the honky tonk spirit was still alive and well! There's definitely more of a country vibe here than previous volumes in this series – but one that really feels more like mid 50s pre-rock material than you'd guess from the time these tracks were recorded. 40 titles in all – with great notes too – and titles include "Too Many Bubbles" by Jay Chevalier, "Everytime I See You" by Sylvia Mobley, "Gonna Be No 1" by Kenny Owens, "Take Me Back To Memphis" by Slim Rhodes, "Midnight Blues" by Charlie Fritts, "You're The Most Hard To Please Woman" by John Temple, "Troy's Boogie" by Troy Collier, and "Where Were You" by Amos Wren.

Expansion (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Lots of killer contemporary soul tracks – but served up with the kind of classic warmth we've always loved in the Soul Togetherness series! The set's got a great selection of well-chosen cuts that are mostly from the current underground – some by artists who've gotten a shot at fame, others who are waiting to be discovered – all brought together in a great array of grooves that have as much going on in the rhythms as they do in the wonderful vocals over the top! Tracks include "Back To You" by Paul Craver, "Kissing You" by Wipe The Needle with Lifford, "History" by Los Charly's Orchestra with Omar, "Love On Hold" by Aeroplane with Tawatha Agee, "When I Love" by Mike City with Faith Evans, "It's All Divine (boogie back ext mix)" by James Day with Trina Broussard, "Good Kinda Lovin" by James King, "Doublin Down" by The Jack Moves, "Keepin Love New (club mix)" by Wez, "Love X Love" by Thames River Soul with Kenny Thomas, "There 4 U" by Leela James, "One For The Money (gold digger rmx)" by The Groove Association with Georgie B, and "Flowered Tears (Michele Chiavarini & DJ Spen ext flower mix)" by SEL.

Franco AmbrosettiLive At The Blue Note ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1993. Used ... $11.99
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".

Gene AmmonsGoodbye ... LP
Prestige, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
Gene Ammons' last session – not as funky as earlier work for Prestige, but pretty nice at that! The group's got Gary Bartz on alto, Kenny Drew on piano, Sam Jones on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and Nat Adderley on cornet – and they groove together well, in the kind of soul jazz/modal mode that you'd find on some of the better mid 70s sides for the Muse label. The album includes a nice remake of Duke Pearson's "Jeanine", plus the tracks "Out In The Sticks", "Alone Again Naturally", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "Geru's Blues".
