Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Sonny StittEddie Lockjaw Davis & Sonny Stitt ... CD
LRC, 1963/1964. Used ... $2.99
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

✨✧ Sarah VaughanEmbraceable You ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1970s. Used ... $3.99
Great 70s live work from Sarah Vaughan – material that easily stands alongside her best for the Pablo label at the same time, but which is far more obscure overall! The notes on the CD aren't much – and obviously help enforce the obscurity of the sessions – but we can say that all the performances are from live dates, and backing appears to be from a trio led by Bob James on acoustic piano on some tracks – and by a larger group with Hank Mobley and Dizzy Gillespie on a few more. Sarah's vocals are simple and straightforward, but have a confidence and poise that's totally great – qualities that have always almost made her a better singer live than in the studio. Titles include "Sassy's Blues", "Scat Blues", "Alfie", "Misty", "I Had A Ball", "The Theme", "Lover Man", "What Now My Love", and "Lover Come Back To Me". CD

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetLonging For The Continent (Japanese pressing) ... CD
LRC/Denon (Japan), 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
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)
