New Louis PrimaWildest Show At Tahoe ... LP LP format
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $9.99
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

Buddy DeFrancoKing Of The Clarinet (10 inch LP) ... LP LP format
MGM, Early 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
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
(Vinyl is nice and clean – and cover is nice too.)

New Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else ... LP LP format
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

New Art BlakeyArt Blakey & The Jazz Messengers (aka Moanin) ... LP LP format
Blue Note, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Art Blakey's first true moments of genius! This transitional version of the Jazz Messengers included two parts – Lee Morgan and Bobby Timmons – of the holy Morgan/Shorter/Timmons trilogy, and it's also got the added bonus of Benny Golson on tenor, who was at the height of his power at this point. The record really shines in ways that few Blakey albums shone since his days with Horace Silver – in that it's a forum for fresh new writing, most importantly Golson's landmark compositions "Blues March" and "Along Came Betty", and Timmons' instant classic "Moanin". The whole album's wonderful, though, and Golson's edgey modernism adds a strong dimension to the group's usual soulful romping groove! LP, Vinyl record album
(New York mono label on one side, and a 63rd Street label on the other side, with RVG stamp. Cover has some wear, a bit of flaking at the opening, and some staining on the back.)

New Art BlakeyJazz Messengers Play Lerner & Loewe ... CD CD format
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".

New Ran BlakeRan Blake Plays Solo Piano ... CD CD format
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
