Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Very Good ... $7.99
Oscar Peterson's trio is augmented here by a famous guest – trumpeter Clark Terry, whose horn adds a nice bit of punctuation to the set, and makes the record a strong standout in the 60s catalogs of both players! The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising fame at the time merges nicely with the popularity of the Peterson group – and since both players share a talent for mixing earthy moments with tighter playing, the whole thing comes off pretty darn nicely! Peterson's piano is supported by rhythm work from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and Terry not only plays trumpet and flugelhorn, but also vocalizes a slight bit too – sometimes at the same point he's playing his horn! Titles include "Mumbles", "Mack The Knife", "Jim", "Blues For Smedley", "Brotherhood Of Man", and "Incoherent Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label stereo pressing.)

Flip PhillipsFlip Phillips Collates (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, 1947/1951. Good ... $24.99
Flip blows it mean and lean – on a tasty 10" LP that combines a number of late 40s sessions recorded for Norman Granz, and packages the whole thing in a totally cool David Stone Martin cover! Players include Howard McGhee, Benny Green, Hank Jones, and Max Roach – really blowing together in some complicated lines – and titles include "Cake", "Cool", "Cookie", "Znarg Blues", "Cheek To Cheek", and "By The Lazy River". LP, Vinyl record album

Portico QuartetArt In The Age Of Automation ... LP
Gondwana (UK), New Copy ... On September 22, 2017
Spiritual space explorations by the Portico Quartet – a group who are really a duo instead of a four-piece – and who use a lot more electronics than some of their contemporaries on the Gondwana label! In a way, the music almost has the same post-jazz vibe as some of the work on the Tru Thoughts label – such as records by Nostalgia 88 – and like that group, these guys effortlessly mix acoustic elements with additional programming and production, into a blend that's got a very open, spacious sort of feel! The songs are all instrumental, and if there was one instrument we'd have to pick as the lead, it might be keyboards – although the sounds throughout are maybe more abstract, although pretty darn tuneful – on titles that include "Mercury Eyes", "Endless", "Objects To Place In A Tomb", "Rushing", "A Luminous Beam", and "Beyond Dialogue".

Kenny RankinColumbia US Singles 1963 to 1966 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $42.99
A stunning early chapter in the career of singer/songwrtiter Kenny Rankin – an artist who'd later break big with a unique mix of jazz and folk, but who already sounds pretty amazing on these early singles recorded for Columbia Records! We'll be honest, we didn't even know about this part of Kenny's career until this set – we first fell in love with his early albums on Mercury in the late 60s – but the set here is completely revelatory, and shows a whole new side of the Rankin genius that should have been huge! Kenny sings a fair bit of original material on the set – and the songs are already very unique – with echoes of jazz, maybe a bit of bossa, some more mainstream phrasing, and definite currents of folk when Rankin plays acoustic guitar. Most tracks were produced by Robert Mersey, some with a slight uptown soul current – and two were produced by Dion, in his hipper, folksier mode – but it's clear right from the start that Kenny's a star that can shine more than brightly enough on its own. Titles include early versions of "In The Name Of Love" and "Haven't We Met" – plus "Don't Go To Strangers", "Come On & Be My Love", "US Mail", "There'll Be No Other Love For Me", "Baby Goodbye", and "Soft Guitar". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful Japanese pressing! Presented by Pied Piper Days, too.)

Max RoachAward Winning Drummer ... LP
Time, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An obscure set from Max Roach – but right up there with his best work of the late 50s on Mercury and other labels! The album features the "award winning" drummer in a quintet with Booker Little on trumpet, Ray Draper on tuba, George Coleman on tenor, and Art Davis on bass – a cool piano-less group that hits some really unusual notes! Draper's horn provides a deep bottom to the record, mixing with Davis' exotic tones nicely – and the album represents Roach's increasing penchant for experimentation in the post Clifford Brown years – tunes with an offbeat edge that's really great. Titles include "Pies Of Quincy", "Tuba De Nod", "Milano", and "Sadiga". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Max RoachDeeds Not Words (second cover) ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good ... $9.99
A seminal set from Max Roach – the start of his more righteous stretch in jazz, as you might guess from the title of the album! At some level, the record's got a bit of the feel of the post-Clifford Brown Mercury years from Roach – but at another, it's stretching out towards the directions Max would explore fully on the Candid, Impulse, and Fantasy labels in the 60s – an approach to hardbop that often really pushes its limits – not content to simply set up solos for the players, and instead moving with a much more forceful energy overall! Group members include Booker Little on trumpet, George Coleman on tenor, Ray Draper on tuba, and Art Davis on bass – and the lack of a piano makes for a very exciting sound! The album's got 2 great originals by Bill Lee – "Jodie's Cha Cha" and "Deeds Not Words" – plus Draper's classic "Filide", and the groundbreaking "Conversation" – a very cool solo by Roach on the drums! LP, Vinyl record album
(60s ABC/Riverside stereo pressing.)

Max RoachMax Roach + 4 ... LP
EmArcy, 1956. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An excellent album from Roach – who's rising here from the ashes after the death of Clifford Brown, to work with a crack new group that would drive him onto a whole new range of styles. The quintet features an all-star lineup: Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Sonny Rollins on tenor, Ray Bryant on piano, George Morrow on bass, and Roach on drums – and the tunes are a mixture of the hardbop that Roach forged with Brown, plus a growing sense of the spiritual, slyly sneaking in, and workin an agenda that was at once subtle and powerful. Titles include "Dr Freezee", "Mr X", "Woodyn You", and "Body & Soul". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing on Mercury. Cover is stained on the bottom inch, with a cutout notch, and a name in marker on back. Labels have some marker.)

Max Roach & Clifford BrownBest Of Max Roach & Clifford Brown In Concert! ... LP
GNP, 1954. Very Good+ ... $6.99
It's hard to overstate the influence of Max Roach and Clifford Brown on the west coast scene of the 50s – as the two players helped draw out the bop sound of LA that was quickly getting lost in the cool jazz shuffle of the time, and gave it a strength and focus that not only made the group one of the strongest of the time, but which also sparked new life and a hardbop generation on the LA scene! This classic set of live recordings was one of the first great Brown/Roach moments – recorded during 2 different concerts by Gene Norman Presents, and featuring some great tenor work by LA giants Teddy Edwards and Harold Land, plus some piano by the amazing "sideways" player Carl Perkins, as well as Bud Powell's brother Richie – a key factor of the group's studio recordings on Mercury, and a player who would perish in the same accident that took the life of Clifford Brown. Titles include "Parisian Thoroughfare", "I Can't Get Started", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "Jordu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

Max Roach Plus FourQuiet As It's Kept ... LP
Mercury, 1960. Very Good- ... $7.99
Nothing too quiet here – as the album's one of Max Roach's key classics from the Mercury years – recorded with one of the hippest groups he ever led! Players here are all wonderful – Julian Priester on trombone, Stanley Turrentine on tenor, Tommy Turrentine on trumpet, Bob Boswell on bass, and Max on drums – all working together in a very hip groove – no piano at all in the mix, which makes for even more interplay between the horns as they dance around tightly at the heads on each tune, always with sharp modern tones – then break apart beautifully for richly expressive solos! The arrangements are wonderful – proof that Roach was really moving past straight hardbop modes by this point in his career – and titles include "Quiet As It's Kept", "To Lady", "Lotus Blossom", "As Long As You're Living", "Juliano", and "The More I See You". LP, Vinyl record album
