MJT+3Walter Perkins' MJT+3 ... CD
Vee Jay/Koch, 1959. Used ... $7.99
The MJT grooves like nobody's business, thanks to a core rhythm group that includes Harold Mabern on piano, Walter Perkins on drums, and Bob Cranshaw on bass. Add to the mix a young Frank Strozier on alto, fresh from Memphis (he made the trip to Chi-town with buddy Harold Mabern), and the smoking trumpet of Willie Thomas, and you've got one of the tightest combos to never make it in the big time. Who cares, though, because this album is a gem, and it grooves along mightily from top to bottom. Strozier and Mabern are fantastic, and they bring a unique soul jazz approach from their native Memphis into play with the firey Chicago rhythm of Cranshaw and Perkins. Tracks include "Sleepy", "Brother Spike", and "Big Hands". CD
(Out of print. Barcode has a cutout hole.)

Frank StrozierFantastic Frank Strozier (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Vee Jay, 1959. Used ... $13.99
A seminal early recording from one of our favorite reed players ever! In the late 1950s, the young Frank Strozier came up to Chicago from Memphis, along with his longtime friend, pianist Harold Mabern. The two of them both settled nicely in the city's MJT+3 combo, where they proceeded to recorde some incredible hardbop sessions for Vee Jay. During that same time, Strozier began to emerge as a strong soloist and a competent leader in his own right, and Vee Jay gave him a much-needed crack at this debut album. The session's a perfect showcase for Strozier's lyrical beauty, and given the quality of the work, it's a wonder he was never more famous. The group's a quintet, and Strozier's ably teamed with Booker Little, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb. This great CD reissue features a few extra tracks that were not issued on the original album. Titles include "WK Blues", "A Starling's Theme", "Off Shore", "Lucka Duce", and "Tibbit". CD
(Out of print 90s Vee Jay US pressing.)
