Max Roach Plus FourMoon Faced & Starry Eyed ... LP
Mercury, 1959. Very Good ... $9.99
One of Max's many great records from the late 50's, most of which tend to get overlooked in favor of his more experimental sessions. The group here includes Ray Bryant, Stanley Turrentine, Julian Priester, and Turrentine's great brother Tommy – and they're joined by Abbey Lincoln on vocals on a number of tracks. The set is mostly standards, and titles include "Never Let Me Go", "Namely You", "Speak Low", and "Wild Is The Wind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Vinyl is nice and clean, and cover is great!)

Max Roach Plus FourQuiet As It's Kept ... LP
Mercury, 1960. Very Good ... $29.99
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
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has one small bit of an old sticker.)

Pete Rugolo10 Saxophones & 2 Basses ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
The groovy off-kilter arranger from the Kenton band lays down some cool, but oddly orchestrated stuff in a setting with a big, fat bottom of 10 saxes and 2 basses. Tracks include "2 Funky Basses", "Contrasts", "Saxophobia", "Holiday For Strings", "Guy Meets Freddie Meets Billy", "Four Brothers & Early Autumn" and "Reed Rapture". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo Mercury Perfect Presence Sound pressing.)

Pete Rugolo10 Trumpets & 2 Guitars ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
An extremely groovy session from arranger Pete Rugolo – done in a style that's partly jazz, but which also has lots of dynamic range – in a way that's almost in the style of some of the RCA bachelor pad albums from the time. Rugolo makes the most of the interesting format – using the horns for blasting, brassy waves of sound upfront – then letting the guitars step around in cool little ways – sometimes hitting the percussive tones you'd hear on an Esquivel album, and at others going for a straighter jazz approach. Players include Pete Candolo, Don Fagerquist, Howard Roberts, Larry Bunker, and Al Viola – and titles include "Two Guitars", "Ten Trumpets Have I", "Trumpets At Large", "Guitarsville", "Whispering", and "Echoes Of Harlem". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove.)

Pete RugoloMusic For Hi Fi Bugs ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
The title makes this one sound like a batch of bachelor pad tunes, but the album itself is easily one of Pete Rugolo's best of the 50s – a really tremendous big band outing that's filled with all-star players – all in a groove that breaks Pete very firmly past his Kenton heritage! The tracks are bold and strong voiced – often a bit longer than usual, which allows for even more focus on the album's solos from players who include Larry Bunker, Pete Candoli, Ronny Lang, Russ Freeman, and Dave Pell. There's a wonderful quality to the record – one in which all elements gell together perfectly, but in a way that still makes you aware of the presence of each player in the larger group – and titles include "Fawncy Meeting You Here", "For Hi Fi Bugs", "These Foolish Things", "Dream Of You", "Snowfall", and "Later Team". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original drummer logo pressing with a deep groove. Cover has some discoloration from age and delamination on front.)

Pete RugoloPercussion At Work ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A percussion-heavy batch of tracks that has Pete Rugolo starting from a mode explored heavily in the hi-fi years, but taking the genre into much jazzier territory! With the help of a large group of west coast players – including Don Fagerquist, Larry Bunker, Herbie Harper, Frank Rosolini, Jack Costanzo, and Shelly Manne – Pete really makes things swing nicely, and brings in as much dynamic energy from the horns as he gets from the percussion! Titles include "Bongo Riff", "Drumerama", "Funky Drums", "Interplay For Drums, Bass", "Artistry In Percussion", and "1+4". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Brass ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $2.99
Pete Rugolo was one of the best arrangers of the 50's, and although his work with Stan Kenton and June Christy is well-known, his better albums (like this one) don't really show up that often. Here, he conducts a tight set of orchestral tracks that feature solos by players like Pete Candoli, Don Fagerquist, Andre Previn, Howard Roberts, and Barney Kessel. The tracks have a warm wash of sound from the brass section, and soaring solos by the west coast jazzmen. Titles include "Salute", "Brass At Work", "My Mother's Eyes", and a nice version of George Wallington's "God Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some bubbles in the gloss along the spine.)

Pete Rugolo & His OrchestraAdventure In Sound - Reeds In Hi Fi ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of Pete Rugolo's greatest albums – and some of his most groundbreaking work away from Stan Kenton! The album features Rugolo arranging for a tight group of west coast reed players – including Bud Shank, Dave Pell, and Bob Cooper – and the tracks are angular, complicated, and dosed with that right mixture of modernism and swing that made Kenton's best work from the early 50s so great. Titles include "Theme For Alto", "Igor Beaver", "Impressionism", "Our Waltz", "Polytonal Blues", and "Collaboration". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove, in the cover with Stereo across the top.)

Jimmy SmithIt's Necessary ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $1.99
One of Jimmy's last albums for a major label in the 70s – a real back-to-basics set that was recorded live at the Jimmy Smith Supper Club in LA – the "home of fried cornbread and live jazz", and a venue that we certainly wish we could have visited! Jimmy's working here with an all-star group that almost recalls his Blue Note jam session work – with Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Teddy Edwards and Harold Land on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar – all coming together in gently-grooving numbers that have a classic soul jazz feel. Titles include "It's Necessary", "For Your Love", "Side Mouthin", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "I've Got Love On My Mind", and "Say It Again, Jim". LP, Vinyl record album
