✨✧ Benny GolsonBenny Golson Quartet ... CD
LRC, 1990. Used ... $7.99
Beautiful work from the always-great Benny Golson – a wonderfully understated quartet session that's filled with plenty of long tracks, and sublime solo work from Golson! Benny's performed in many settings over the years – all of which are great – but we're recently quite partial to his more relaxed and open sessions from this period – dates like this which show a newly reborn focus on the sound of his horn and his ability to improvised creatively over an extended period of time. There's a definite Dexter Gordon influence to the impulse – but Benny serves up the music with a fair bit more soul and lyrical imagination – working here with a group that includes Mulgrew Miller on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Tony Reedus on drums. The set list features Golson standards "Up Jumped Spring" and "Stable Mates" – as well as the tracks "Voyage", "Beautiful Love", and "Goodbye". CD

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Sonny StittEddie Lockjaw Davis & Sonny Stitt ... CD
LRC, 1963/1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Obscure 60s material by Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Sonny Stitt – but pretty darn great overall, despite a lack of good notes on the sessions! The tunes here have that lean approach to soul jazz that both players were working in during the mid 60s – Davis on his fine recordings for RCA, and Stitt on some of his best Argo/Cadet sessions – a nicely cleaner, more contemporary approach – but one that still allows both players to showcase their solo talents. The rhythms are great – sometimes with a bit of bossa influence – and backings are listed as being by Milt Bucker on piano, Jimmy Leary on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums. Oddly, though, Davis is the only player credited in the notes, and each tune only has one saxophone making an appearance – so we're not sure if this is all Davis (it sounds raspy enough), or if Stitt's supposed to be on some of these tracks as well. Titles include "Leapin On Lenox", "Body & Soul", "Quiet Nights", "Just Friends", "Mean To Me", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "I Can't Get Started". CD

✨✧ Freddie Hubbard & Benny GolsonJazz Masters – Freddie Hubbard & Benny Golson ... CD
LRC, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure date from trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and tenorist Benny Golson – but some really great work from both players! The format here is relaxed and very open – long tunes that allow both players to really stretch out on their solos with tremendous grace and imagination. And despite the low price and simple packaging of the set, the quality of both the music and recording is easily on a par with the best 80s work by Hubbard and Golson – and is a masterful meeting of both artists! The group's a quintet, with more additional great talent – including Mulgrew Miller on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Marvin Smitty Smith on drums – hitting the kit with a great sense of energy that really drives the session. Titles include a great acoustic reworking of Hubbard's classic "Povo", presented in a way that's still surprisingly funky – plus "Double Bass", "Sad To Say", "Far Away", "Gypsy Jingle Jangle", and "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing".

✨✧ Thad Jones & Mel LewisLive On Tour – Switzerland 1969 ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from the legendary big band of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – a live performance recorded in Switzerland at the same time as the group's classic recordings for the Solid State label! Given that the date was recorded by Solid State producer Sonny Lester, the feel here is quite similar – and the album stands strongly alongside the better-known live dates by the group at the Village Vanguard from the same time. As on those records, there's a tremendous blend of driving energy and lyrical musing going on here – qualities that are very hard to balance this well in such a big band, but which became the trademark sounds of the Jones/Lewis group as they helped redirect large ensemble jazz towards new ends as the 60s drew to a close. Players are all top-shelf – with rhythm by Roland Hanna on piano and Richard Davis on bass, alongside the drums of Lewis – plus saxes from Joe Henderson, Pepper Adams, Jerome Richardson, and Jerry Dodgion; trumpets from Richard Williams, Thad Jones, and Snooky Young; and trombones from Eddie Bert and Jimmy Knepper. Titles include "Second Race", "Don't Ever Leave Me", "Come Sunday", "Don't Get Sassy", "Groove Merchant", "Ahh That's Freedom", "The Waltz You Swang For Me", and "Bible Story". CD

✨✧ Carmen McRaeVelvet Soul (It Takes A Whole Lot Of Human Feeling/Ms Jazz) ... CD
LRC/Denon, 1973/1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This double-length set brings together two albums' worth of work that Carmen McRae recorded for the Groove Merchant label in the early 70s! The style here is strongly jazzy, but with a firm dose of soul too – all in a mode that follows nicely from Carmen's late 60s sessions for Atlantic Records, but with a sound that's almost even more focused and in the pocket. The band is largeish, but the rhythms are tight – and even the mellower tunes seem to have a nice sort of lilt at the bottom, one that goes great with the way that Carmen spaces out her vocals on the set. Players include Joe Pass on guitar, Larry Bunker on vibes, Zoot Sims on tenor, and Dick Shreve on piano – and the CD features 19 tracks that include "Hey John", "Inside A Silent Tear", "The Right To Love", "You & I", "Sunshine Of My Life", "The Good Life", "It Takes A Whole Lot Of Human Feeling", "Livin", "Masquerade", "You're Mine You", and "There Will Come A Time".

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetLonging For The Continent ... CD
LRC, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very cool lost slice of work by the Modern Jazz Quartet – a concert recorded in Paris in 1958, and one that features a guest appearance by the Jazz Group De Paris on a few tracks! The core MJQ work here is especially great – served up with a sound that's a bit looser, and almost with more of an edge than some of their studio sides from the time – especially on Milt Jackson's vibes, which ring out with a boldness that we really love. The Jazz Group De Paris, led by Andre Hodier, make an appearance on the tracks "Ambiquite" and "Sketch 3" – adding in extra horn parts that have a sharp-edged and modern sound that's really great. Other straight quartet numbers include "Midsommer", "Django", "Animal Dance", "England's Carol", and "Bag's Groove".. CD
