Paul QuinichetteFor Basie ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good- ... $1.99
Smoking tenor sax from Paul Quinichette – heard here in a small group of Basie bandmates, but in a setting that also has all the players stretch out a lot more than usual! Tracks are a bit long, and in addition to Quinichette on tenor, the set also features Shad Collins on trumpet, Nat Pierce on piano, and Freddie Green on guitar! LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label Swingville pressing. Cover has moderate wear, staining, tape along some seams, and some pen on the back. Vinyl plays with some crackles.)

Paul QuinichetteMoods EP ... 7-inch
EmArcy, 1954. Very Good- (pic cover)... $4.99
Perhaps the best-known (and arguably the best) record by Paul Quinchette, and an album that brings his rich tenor solo style into contact with a very tight, very swinging batch of arrangments by a young Quincy Jones. Quincy's got an all-star batch of players backing up Q, including Sam Most, Charles Thompson, Paul Chambers, and Barry Galbraith – plus players like Willie Rodriguez and Manny Oquendo, who bring some added Latin percussion to the session. The tracks are short, but with a very open approach to soloing, and although Quinchette's in the lead, some of the other players get their licks in quite a bit. Titles include "Tropical Intrigue", "Dilemma Diablo", "Shorty George". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Paul QuinichetteVice Pres ... LP
EmArcy, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $9.99
Some of the greatest work as a leader ever cut by tenorist Paul Quinichette – longtime Basie alum, and a key player who was the "Vice Pres" next to Lester Young's "Pres". The record is one of the best full-length albums by Quinichette from the early days, and combines material from a 10" LP and an earlier e.p. into a sparkling set of a dozen tracks that includes "Cross Fire", "The Hook", "Samie", "Shad Roe", "Prevue", "Sandstone", "Bot Bot", and "Paul's Bunion". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul Quinichette, Buck Clayton, Nat Pierce, et alBasie Reunion ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
The title tells the tale on this one – as the session's a studio meeting of players all associated with Count Basie over the years – captured here in a style that's much more laidback and relaxed than the usual Basie set! The album's got the feel of some of Prestige's best work in the Swingville series, but also has an approach that's almost in the blowing session mode – with long tracks on the album that really let each player step out in their own voice. The lineup includes Paul Quinichette on tenor, Buck Clayton and Shad Collins on trumpet, Jack Washington on baritone sax, Nat Pierce on piano, Freddie Greene on guitar, and Jo Jones on drums – and titles include "Blues I Love To Hear", "Love Jumped Out", "John's Idea", and "Baby Don't Tell On Me".

✨✧ Charlie Rouse & Paul QuinichetteChase Is On ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer – and one of the greatest records ever cut on Bethlehem! Charlie Rouse and Paul Quinichette go head to head in a hard-blown session that's very different than most of the work on Bethlehem – grooving in a free-wheeling "chase" mode, as you might guess from the title – with lots of heavy tenor in the lead, cooking at a level that's more like a Prestige or Savoy session from the 50s! The group's as tight as can be – with some killer drum work from Ed Thigpen, and piano by either Wynton Kelly or Hank Jones. Titles include "The Chase Is On", "You're Cheating Yourself", "Knittin", "Tender Trap", and "When The Blues Come On". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red label pressing, with deep groove – nice and clean! Cover is nice, too – save for one small split in a bottom corner.)

✨✧ Paul QuinichetteOn The Sunny Side (with bonus track) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
A perfect example of the great skill that Prestige had for taking a good ensemble player, and putting him into a context that really let him open up in a manner that brought his best points to light! In this case, Quinichette's plucked from Basie's group and put with a tight bunch of soulful players like Sonny Red, John Jenkins, Curtis Fuller, and Mal Waldron – all of whom are very well trained to handle this sort of pickup session well. Tracks are long, and titles include "Cool-Lypso", "Circles", and "Blue Dots". Includes the bonus track "My Funny Valentine". CD

Gene AmmonsBig Sound ... CD
Prestige, Mid 50s. Used ... $7.99
Classic Jug, playing in a laidback open-ended blowing session, with other strong Prestige players – like Coltrane, Jerome Richardson, Paul Quinichette, Art Taylor, and Mal Waldron, who always seems to be the driving force between most Prestige sides like this. The album has only 4 tracks, and they're all long and nice and soulful. The titles are "Blue Hymn", "The Real McCoy", "Cheek To Cheek", and "That's All". CD

LaVern BakerLaVern Baker Sings Bessie Smith ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
Bessie Smith by LaVern Baker – a great blend of modes that really comes off great! Instead of sounding like a throwback blues album, the set comes across with a nice degree of contemporary class – thanks in part to a jazzy presentation that's a bit different than some of Baker's other music of the time – and which sports reeds from Sahib Shihab, tenor from Paul Quinichette, trumpet from Buck Clayton, and trombone from Jimmy Cleveland! Baker's voice is in fine form in this comfortable setting – and really works magic with tracks that include "After You've Gone", "Preaching The Blues", "Empty Bed Blues", "Back Water Blues", and "Gimme A Pigfoot". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has light wear, a bumped corner, some fading along the spine, and a small stain on the back.)

Gene Roland/Hal SerraJazzville Vol 4 ... LP
Dawn, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $48.99
Quite possibly the rarest of the Jazzville series on Dawn Records – and one of the few albums to offer work as a leader from trumpeter Gene Roland! Roland dominates side one of the record – playing in both octet and sextet formation with players who include Paul Quinichette on tenor, Nat Pierce on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Dick Meldonian on alto – all in a groove that has that tightly arranged Dawn sound, but still plenty of nice solo moments! The flipside features work by the lesser-known pianist Hal Serra – working here both in a trio and expanded quartet with trumpet from Bert Collins on 2 numbers. Roland titles include "Minor Scene", "Suitcase", "The Creeper", and "Colonel Hodge" – and Serra titles include "Irma", "Why Was I Born", "Everything I've Got Belongs To You", "The Things I Love", and "Suddenly It's Spring". LP, Vinyl record album

Avenue/Bethlehem, 1957. Used ... $3.99
Classic King R&B material from Vinson, featuring some great backing by a surprising amount of jazz players! The album includes playing by Frank Foster, Joe Newman, Charlie Rouse, Ed Thigpen, Freddie Green, Paul Quinichette, and Nat Pierce – and the sound owes a lot to Joe Turner's work with Basie. Titles include "Cherry Red", "That's The Way To Treat Your Woman", "Kidney Stew", "Hold It Right There", and "Your Baby Ain't Sweet Like Mine". CD

Dinah WashingtonFor Those In Love ... CD
EmArcy, 1955. Used ... $6.99
Excellent small group jazz work from Dinah – of the sort that's often quite tough to find on vinyl, and which represents some of her best work of all time! The album's got a good group of Mercury jazz players – like Clark Terry, Paul Quinichette, Cecil Payne, Wynton Kelly, and Jimmy Cobb – all playing in a laidback intimate setting which works very nicely for Dinah's soulful vocals. Titles include "Blue Gardenia", "You Don't Know What Love Is", "I Could Write A Book", and "Easy Living". A bit Billie Holiday-ish, sure – but nice! CD

VariousJazz For Hi-Fi Lovers ... LP
Dawn, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A great collection of material from sessions cut for Dawn Records in the late 50s – some of the label's best artists, presented here in a special package for "hi fi" lovers! There's a wide range of styles on the set – from swing, to bop, to chamber jazz – and titles include "Loose Wig" by Randy Weston, "Not So Sleepy" by Mat Mathews, "Catch Her" by Les Modes, "Darn That Dream" by Alex Smith, "Bye Ya" by Zoot Sims, "Suitcase" by Gene Roland Octet, "Start Here" by Paul Quinichette, and "If I'm Lucky" by Dick Garcia with Gene Quill. Nice 50s cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original deep groove pressing – in nice shape! Cover has one very light, small stain in a spot on the bottom edge – but the rest is nice, with no splits.)

Bob BrookmeyerKansas City Revisited ... LP
United Artists, Late 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A very unusual session – especially considering Bob Brookmeyer's more modernist modes of the 50s! This album has Bob going back to roots you might not guess that he had – picking up bits of a Kansas City sound that (as he tells in the liner notes) clearly inspired him in the early days, and which is presented here surprisingly well by a septet that includes Bob on valve trombone, Al Cohn and Paul Quinichette on tenor, Nat Pierce on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Addison Farmer on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – all playing long and lean on some real Basie-styled numbers. Quinichette's presence really sets the tone for the record, and seems to pull out earthy qualities in the other players that we didn't even know they had – and on 2 numbers, Big Miller delivers some bluesy vocals as well. Titles include "Jumping At The Woodside", "A Blues", "Blue & Sentimental", and "Moten Swing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original white label promo – with deep groove. Cover is nice.)

Woody Herman & Tito PuenteHerman's Heat & Puente's Beat! ... LP
Everest, 1958. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A great little meeting of Latin and jazz players – an oft-overlooked album in Puente's catalog of the time! The album features Woody leading a small group of jazz players – including Al Cohn, Paul Quinichette, Billy Byers, and Nick Travis – with extra timbales by Puente and congas by Ray Barretto – and the overall approach is light but tight, with more of a straight jazz component than you'd find on most of Tito's records from the time, but also a wonderfully driven groove that still keeps the rhythms mostly on the Latin end of things! Titles include "Cha Cha Chick", "Tito Meets Woody", "Pillar To Post", "Midnight Sun", "Blue Station", "Mambo Herd", and "Balu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Billie HolidayBanned From New York City – Live 1948 to 1957 ... CD
Uptown, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful live work from the second chapter of Billie Holiday's career – that stretch when she was barred from performing in most New York clubs, due to the loss of her cabaret card – which actually seemed to lead to a wider range of exposure in venues across the country! The overstuffed 2CD set brings together a number of very well-recorded live dates from cities that include Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Boston – plus work from a show in Brussels, and a TV appearance on Steve Allen's early Tonight Show – some material that's only been out partially before, mixed with other tracks that are seeing the light of day for the first time ever. Most numbers have very small combo backing – with players who include Carl Drinkard, Jimmy Rowles, or Bobby Tucker on piano – plus Herbie Harper on trombone, Neal Hefti on trumpet, Red Norvo on vibes, and Paul Quinichette on tenor. But the real star is clearly Billie throughout – and these tracks aren't just "extras" added to her studio work or live sides for Verve – and instead show how Holiday always shone throughout her career, and continued to bring a very personal approach to every performance. 2CD set features a whopping 42 tracks, with lots of notes – and titles include a number of Holiday standards, plus some lesser-known gems too.

✨✧ Johnny Smith with Stan GetzMoonlight In Vermont ... CD
Roulette, 1952/1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful document of some of the most laidback jazz ever recorded – the sublime 50s recordings of the Johnny Smith group, done at a time when the lineup included Stan Getz! The tunes on the set feature Johnny's mellow electric guitar setting the pace, alongside wonderfully-blown early solos from Stan, plus some other tenor work from Zoot Sims and Paul Quinichette, who also sit in the tenor chair on a few of these recordings. The tunes are mostly standards, but done in a great style that's not exactly cool jazz, but which has a groundbreakingly easy groove that's simply sublime! CD features a number of bonus and unreleased cuts, with 19 tracks that include "What's New", "Yesterdays", "Vilia", "Ghost Of A Chance", "Jaguar", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Tabu", and "Where Or When".

✨✧ Dinah WashingtonAfter Hours With Miss D ... LP
EmArcy, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dinah's in a perfect setting here – one that gets more jazz out of her style than other records at the time! The "after hours" setting has Dinah singing with a relaxed jazz combo – one that features Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Paul Quinichette on tenor, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Junior Mance on piano – as well as some other nice touches, like congas from Candido, and a bit of organ work from Jackie Davis! The tunes still have the slightly bluesy feel of Dinah's other work, but are more jazz-based in their phrasing and presentation – and titles include "A Foggy Day", "Bye Bye Blues", "Am I Blue", "Blue Skies", and "Love For Sale". LP, Vinyl record album

Deep, slow grooving, and with lots of nice solos. 4 tracks, and all of them long. Titles include "Wheelin", "Dealin", and "Things Ain't What They Used To Be". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Count BasieCount Basie Sextet (10 inch LP) ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An interesting little album by Basie – most notable in that it features him playing a bit of organ, which is always a treat! Basie's not the greatest talent on the organ, but he is one of the first jazz players to use the instrument in a wider context, and hearing the album's a good way to check out the organ jazz scene and sound before Jimmy Smith got his hands atop the Hammond and shook the whole thing up! Players on the set include Freddie Green, Paul Quinichette, Buddy Rich, and Joe Newman – and titles include "Stan Shorthair", "Count's Organ Blues", "KC Organ Blues", "Royal Garden Blues", and "Basie Beat". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear & some masking tape along the top & bottom seam.)

✨✧ Webster YoungFor Lady ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by trumpeter Webster Young – and a classic Prestige blowing session from the late 50s! Young's billed as the leader of the set, and credited with the overall conception – 6 tracks dedicated to Billie Holiday – but the overall feel and presentation is much more in keeping with the leader-less blowing sides often issued by Prestige at the time. Other players include Paul Quinichette on tenor, Mal Waldron on piano, Joe Puma on guitar, Earl May on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums – all of whom get in plenty of licks on the album's long tracks that include "The Lady", "Don't Explain", "Moanin Low", and "Strange Fruit". LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing. Cover has a cut corner, a radio station sticker, and minor stains on back.)
