Louis PrimaWildest Show At Tahoe ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
One of Louie Prima's greatest albums ever! The set's a smoking live one, caught at Lake Tahoe, with Keely Smith and Sam Butera very firmly in tow – and the approach works wonderfully for Prima's lively swinging style. Titles include some great medleys – "Angelina/Zooma Zooma", "Don't Worry Bout Me/I'm In The Mood For Love", "On The Sunny Side Of The Street/Exactly Like You", and "Robin Hood/Oh Babe" – plus straighter tunes "A Foggy Day", "I've Got A Right To Sing The Blues", and "Come Back To Sorrento". LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label pressing. Cover has moderate wear, some light stains, a bit of sticker residue, and some tape on the top seam.)

Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Good ... $34.99
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
(63rd street pressing with deep groove, with RVG stamp. Cover has some wear and the back paste-on has some aging.)

Buddy DeFrancoKing Of The Clarinet (10 inch LP) ... LP
MGM, Early 50s. Good+ ... $11.99
We can't say for sure that Buddy's actually the king of the clarinet, but this record is mighty nice work – and a crackling little set that catches DeFranco at a time when he was one of the strongest players on his instrument, and one of the few to equally absorb bop and swing influences. As with other DeFranco standouts from the time, the rhythm section is what really makes the record – and here he's working with Kenny Drew on piano throughout, plus either Art Blakey or Art Taylor on drums, Teddy Kotick or Curley Russell on bass, and a bit of guitar from Jimmy Raney. Titles include "Cairo", "Lover Come Back To Me", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Street Of Dreams", "Gone With The Wind", and "Sophisticated Lady". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some splitting.)

Johnny DoddsNew Orleans Clarinet ... LP
Riverside, 1920s. Very Good- ... $19.99
Seminal recordings of the trad clarinetist, recorded in Chicago in a variety of settings, mostly smaller bluesy groups of the sort that were inhabiting the south and west sides of town. Like Louis Armstrong, he supplanted his New Orleans style to Chicago, meshing it with the urban black musics that would become the roots of jazz. A dozen numbers in all, recorded with Jasper Taylor's State Street Boys, Junie Cobb's Hometown Band, Viola Bartlette, Blind Blake, the State Street Rqamblers and Lovie Austin's Blues Serenaders, including "It Must Be The Blues", "State Street Blues", "East Coast Trot", "Chicago Buzz", "Walk Easy 'Cause My Papa's Here", 'Southbound Rag", "Bohunkus Blues", "Buddy Burton's Jazz", "Cootie Stomp", "Weary Way Blues", "Chicago Mess Around" and "Gallion Stomp". LP, Vinyl record album
(White & blue label Bill Grauer Productions pressing, with microphone logo and deep groove. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on Side 2. Cover has a split top seam and spine, and a peeled spot from sticker removal.)

✨✧ Miles DavisBlue Haze ... LP
Prestige, 1954. Poor ... Just Sold Out!
An early full-length album issued under Miles Davis' name – one that brings together some earlier 10" and single recordings for Prestige! The feel here is quite similar to Davis' work of the time for Blue Note – done with tracks that are short and tight, and very boppish – less of the glistening Davis style of later years, but still quite strongly voiced nonetheless. Players include Horace Silver on piano on most tracks, plus a bit of keys from John Lewis – and one track even features Charles Mingus on piano! Other players on the sessions include Art Blakey, Max Roach, or Kenny Clarke on drums – plus Percy Heath on bass, and a bit of alto from Davey Schildkraut. Titles include "I'll Remember April", "Old Devil Moon", "Tune Up", "Miles Ahead", "Four", and "Smooch". LP, Vinyl record album
(CONDITION NOTE: POOR. NYC 50th street pressing with deep groove and RVG stamp! Cover has moderate wear and aging.)

✨✧ Art BlakeyJazz Messengers Play Lerner & Loewe ... CD
Vik/RCA (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe – composers usually associated with the Broadway stage, brought into a whole new light here by the late 50s Jazz Messengers! The album's one of Art Blakey's more unusual outings – part of that great 1957 run away from Blue Note – but it cooks strongly with a lineup that includes Jackie McLean on alto, Johnny Griffin on tenor, and Bill Hardman on trumpet – all players who bring an unusual degree of bite to these tunes, while still reflecting the lyrical beauty within! The group sparkles and shines with the sort of brilliance and energy that Blakey's leadership brings to the group, completely transforming tunes that include "I Could Have Danced All Night", "Almost Like Being In Love", "On The Street Where You Live", and "There But For You Go I".

✨✧ Ran BlakeRan Blake Plays Solo Piano ... CD
ESP, 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really amazing early work from pianist Ran Blake – an artist who's continued to blow our minds in more recent years, but who sounds especially outstanding hear in an early session for the ESP label! The album's quite different from some of the freer, bolder music you'd normally associate with ESP – as Ran plays solo here, with a style that's very poetic – although still quite open-ended and free, with a fair bit of improvisation as well. The shift of tones alone is mindblowing – almost beyond anything you might expect to come from the piano, yet without any of the heavier-handed modes of a player like Cecil Taylor. Original material is mixed with very vivid re-workings of jazz standards – and titles include "Vanguard", "Sister Tee", "Eric", "Stratusphunk", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Lonely Woman". CD
