✨✧ Art BlakeyAt The Jazz Corner Of The World Vol 2 ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. Very Good+ ... $79.99
One of the many albums that the Jazz Messengers recorded live at Birdland, and one that features a transitional lineup for the band that has new guard players Lee Morgan on trumpet and Bobby Timmons on piano, and old guard player Hank Mobley on tenor. Everyone grooves in a very hard fashion – and the set's an excellent link between the raw mid 50s version of the Messengers, and the groundbreaking 1960 edition. The set list of this second volume includes "M&M", "Hi Fly", "Art's Revelation", and "Chicken An' Dumplins". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street stereo pressing, with RVG/Stereo stamp. Cover has some edge ewar and notes in ink on back.)

Art BlakeyHoliday For Skins Vol 2 ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Very Good ... $99.99
The rarest of all of Art Blakey's percussion group projects – and quite possibly the best, too! The session features Blakey at the head of a strong mix of jazz and percussion players – with Art Taylor and Philly Joe Jones on the regular drum kit, Donald Byrd on trumpet and Ray Bryant on piano, and a host of assorted percussion work by the likes of Ray Barretto, Sabu Martinez, Victor Gonzalez, Julio Martinez, and others. The resultant sound is incredible – very full, rich, and earthy – and done in a way that interweaves African and Latin percussion styles with straighter American jazz! A few cuts have chanting by Blakey and Sabu – and titles on this second volume include "Otinde", "Swingin Kilts", "Dinga", and "Reflection". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd Street pressing, with RVG stamp – deep groove on one side. Cover has some light wear around the edges.)

Art BlakeyNight At Birdland Vol 1 (original cover) ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Fair ... $24.99
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver – and featuring Clifford Brown on trumpet, just a few months before his early death – plus Lou Donaldson on alto and Curley Russell on bass. The presence of alto instead of tenor makes the sound slightly different than later incarnations of the group – and the overall approach is one that virtually defines the shift from straight bop to hardbop in the 50s – a mode that both Blakey and Silver were key in creating. Tracks include "Split Kick", "Quicksilver", "Mayreh", and "A Night In Tunisia". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street pressing with deep groove & RVG etch – in the blue/green tinted cover. Cover has moderate wear, splitting and stains. Label has wear. Vinyl plays with numerous clicks & crackles.)

✨✧ Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersAt The Cafe Bohemia Volume 2 ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Very Good ... $139.99
Classic early set featuring the Jazz Messengers back when the group still included Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, and Kenny Dorham. Hard hard hard bop, cracklin' with energy, and a great example of the kind of playing that made the group an instant success. Tracks on this second volume include "Sportin Crowd", "Avila & Tequila", "I Waited For You", and "Yesterdays". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street deep groove pressing – with RVG etch, and ear! Cover has a tiny bit of seam splitting, but is great overall.)

Horace SilverSpotlight On Drums: Art Blakey - Sabu ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good ... $89.99
A seminal, yet unusual 50s Blue Note treasure! The album brings together a number of Horace Silver's great trio recordings from the early 50's, most of them with Art Blakey on drums, showing the fluid, rumbling genius that would later make him such a great leader. But the record also includes 2 tracks that don't even have Horace at all – and which feature duets between Art Blakey on drums and Sabu Martinez on conga, on the titles "Message From Kenya" and "Nothing But The Soul" – both tunes that have a highly percussive feel, and which were penned by Blakey. They're nice little percussion jams, and really take the material beyond typical 50s jazz and into beautiful beat-heavy territory – and they side nicely next to classic trio sides that include "Safari", "Ecaroh", and "Opus De Funk". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street pressing – with deep groove, RVG etching, and "ear". Vinyl is clean, but has short clicks on two tracks – and bottom cover seam and most of top is split.)

✨✧ VariousR&B On Lakewood Boulevard – Rare & Unreleased Rhythm & Blues From Southern California ... CD
Downey/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked source of soul from the west coast scene – rough-edged material recorded by the small Downey family of labels – a company that's mostly known for its bigger hits in rock and roll at the time! Downey had a great flurry of instrumental rock hits in the early 60s – but at the same time, the company was also cutting a bit of the late R&B and early soul material that never got the right sort of exposure on the LA scene – tracks that would have ended up on Chess, Motown, or Atlantic if the artists had been working back east – but which instead had to find an outlet in the busy recording schedule of Downey. A number of these tracks circulated as singles back in the day, but far more were lost to the shifting sands of time – and either appear here for the first time, or saw brief release in later years since their recording – certainly never in a format this well-done. The package features a whopping 26 tracks in all – plus detailed notes on the legendary Downey studios and store, and the unique story of the music as well. Titles include "Midnight Bells Are Ringing", by T-Bone Walker Jr, "She Wobbles When She Walks" and "Jaywalkin'" by Paul Clifton, "Leave My Woman Alone" by Ace Holder, "Too Young" by Boyce Cunningham, "TV Guide" by Jessie Hill, "Stop Fooling Around" by Little Johnny Taylor, "I Hope That It's Me" by Little Caesar & The Ark Angels, "Down The Street" and "TV Guide" by Jessie Hill, "Laura" and "Fare Thee Well" by The Debonaires, and "Night Scene" by Chuck Higgins.

✨✧ Clifford BrownMemorial Album (Blue Note) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good ... $199.99
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with the modernist Gigi Gryce on flute and alto sax – plus Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Lewis on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – a lineup that has a strong sense of soul, balanced with a dose of modernism – on titles that include the classic "Hymn to the Orient" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Easy Living", "Cherokee", "Wail Bait", and "Minor Mood". Side two features an equally sharp group – with Lou Donaldson on some excellent alto, and the great Elmo Hope on piano – on titles that include "Brownie Speaks", "De Dah", "Cookin", "You Go To My Head", and "Carving The Rock". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 63rd Street pressing, with deep groove, RVG & 9M etch, and ear. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Wail Bait". Cover has some edge wear, with a small name in pen and a vintage price sticker on back.)

✨✧ Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins Vol 2 ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
As classic as it comes for late 50s Blue Note – and a key meeting between Sonny Rollins and Thelonious Monk! The group on the set features Rollins and Monk with JJ Johnson, Paul Chambers, and Art Blakey – all of whom push things more in the direction of Blue Note's sound of the time, then Monk's own recordings of the period for Riverside. But the contrast of modes makes for a really startling sound – one that has Monk "monking" it up next to the straighter rhythm section, and bringing out some more modern tones in Rollins' tenor work. Horace Silver plays piano on part of the set as well – but still keeps things strong – and titles include "Why Don't I", "Wail March", "Misterioso", and "Reflections". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street deep groove pressing, with RVG etch and ear. Vinyl has marks – with some clicks – but still plays nice and loud overall. Cover has some wear and a split spine & tape on all seams.)

✨✧ VariousSoul On The Real Side #5 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), 1970s/Early 80s/2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe the best volume so far in this excellent series – a compilation collection that never lets us down, but which really brings something special to the mix this time around! There's a wealth of obscure modern soul tracks here – nicely grooving numbers from the 70s and early 80s, mixed with a few choice cuts from later years, too – but all with a warm glow that's plenty classic all the way through – that special blend of soul that made the 70s mellow groove so great! Many tracks are quite obscure, and haven't been reissued elsewhere – and the set features 20 titles in all, with cuts that include "Give Him Up" by First Generation, "Sha-La Bandit" by Delores Hall, "Love Is A Game" by Harry Ray, "Whisper In Your Ear" by Reggie Griffin, "I've Quit Running The Streets" by Garland Green, "Baby Don't Wake Me" by Del Davis, "No One Can Love You Like I Do" by Flakes, "Just The Way You Like It" by Leon Bryant, "I Wanna Spend My Whole Life With You" by Street People, "Be Real" by Tomorrow's Edition, "Let's Do It Now" by JALN Band, "Rain In My Life" by Prophecy, "Aah Dance" by Fine Quality feat Cuz, and Lisa Stansfield's great version of "A Case Of Too Much Love Making".

Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Good ... $29.99
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect offset to Cannonball's more soulful style. The rest of the group includes Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey – and like John Coltrane's Blue Train, the record's more of an "special session" than the usual Blue Note album, but the strength of the players make it one of the more memorable records of its day! Titles include "Somethin' Else", "One For Daddy-O", and a nice moody take on "Dancing In The Dark". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 63rd Street pressing with deep groove, RVG stamp, 9M etch and ear. Cover has some wear. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)
Also available Somethin' Else (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP 16.99
