Paul QuinichetteLike Basie (aka Like Who) ... CD
United Artists/Mighty Quinn, 1959. Used ... $6.99
A long-overdue reissue of a great album from saxophonist Paul Quinichette – originally released with the title Like Who? The "who" in that title is Basie – and this was one of many late 50s outings cut by Basie sidemen, in an attempt to recapture the energy of his hit sound, but in a smaller group format! And like many of those albums, this one's actually a shade more interesting than Basie sides from the 50s – as it gives the players more room to stretch out, and shows that they can groove well together in a more relaxed setting. Quinichette's the leader, and his tenor is excellent in this stretch of his career; Nat Pierce handled the arrangements and plays piano on the album; and other players include Al Grey, Harry Edison, Eddie Jones, Freddie Green, and Jo Jones. Titles include "Big D", "The Holly Man", "PQ", and "Like Who?" – and most tunes are over 5 minutes long. CD

Paul QuinichetteOn The Sunny Side (with bonus track) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... $19.99
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

Paul QuinichetteVice Pres ... CD
Verve, 1951/1952/1954. Used ... $13.99
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 CD combines a huge batch of tracks from the early 50s – including titles from the album The Vice Pres, the 10" LP Sequel, and 6 previously unissued alternate takes. Quinichette's playing in smallish groups with a number of Basie bandmates – including Freddie Green, Buck Clayton, Joe Newman, and Basie himself – but there's also some great twists to the recordings, like organ by Bill Doggett and Marlowe Morris, and some crack arrangements by Ernie Wilkins. Tracks are short, and Quinichette's right on the money with nearly all his solos. Titles include "No Parking", "Crossfire", "Sandstone", "Prevue", "Bot Bot", "Samie", 'Shad Roe", and "Crew Cut". CD

✨✧ Charlie Rouse & Paul QuinichetteChase Is On (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Bethlehem/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1957. New Copy ... 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

Count BasieSwinging Count ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
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, Joe Newman, Buddy Rich, Henry Coker, and Ernie Wilkins – and titles include "Stan Shorthair", "Count's Organ Blues", "KC Organ Blues", "Royal Garden Blues", "Basie Beat", and "Extended Blues".

Stan Getz, Jimmy Raney, Wardelly Gray, & OthersLook At Yesterday (with vocal tracks) ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $13.99
Rare work from the earliest years of bebop – a 60s album that brings together material that was originally issued as 78rpm recordings on the Sittin In With label! These sides are a great complement to better-known material on labels like Prestige and Savoy from the time – as they feature formative performances by artists who'd go on to shape modern jazz in the postwar years – already sounding pretty revolutionary here! The album features early performances by Stan Getz on tenor with Jimmy Raney on guitar and Al Haig on piano – on titles "As I Live In Bop", "Diaper Pin", and "Interlude In Bebop"; Paul Quinichette plays tenor with Freddie Green on guitar and Kenny Drew on piano – on "Sleepy Time Gal" and "Birdland Jump"; Wardell Gray blows tenor with Al Haig on piano, on "Stoned"; and the set even features vocal tracks – Jimmy Raney duetting with Terry Swope on "Talk A Little Bop" and "In A Little Spanish Town" – and a pre-LHR vocal group with Dave Lambert, Buddy Stewart, and Blossom Dearie – on "Hot Halvah" and "In The Merry Land Of Bop". CD features lots of bonus tracks – with a total of 23 tracks in all, including work by John Hardee on tenor, and more by Getz and Wardell Gray! CD

Billie HolidayClassic Lady Day (Solitude/Recital/Velvet Mood/Lady Sings The Blues/All Or Nothing At All) (5CD set) ... CD
Verve, 1950s. New Copy 5CD ... $34.99 49.99
5 late albums from Billie Holiday – all collected in one sweet set, in tiny LP-styled sleeves, too! First up is Solitude – classic Billie Holiday for Verve – sad, blue-tinged, and recorded with great small combo backing – in a mode that really updates the sound of her initial recordings while still keeping the best elements intact! Players include Oscar Peterson, Alvin Stoller, Barney Kessell, and Ray Brown on the core group – plus bits of added solo work from Flip Phillips on tenor and Charlie Shavers on trumpet. Titles include "Solitude", "Moonglow", "Tenderly", "Everything I Have Is Yours", "East Of The Sun", "You Turned The Tables On Me", and "Easy To Love". Recital is not really a recital in the "live" sense, in that the album's a studio session – but a great batch of classic Verve sides by Billie Holiday! The care and quality of the record definitely demonstrate that the Verve years are some of Holiday's best – and for the session, Norman Granz has backed up Billie with a great batch of musicians – including Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Flip Philips on tenor, Barney Kessel on guitar, and Oscar Peterson on piano. Tracks include "Remember", "Yesterdays", "He's Funny That Way", "Stormy Weather", "My Man", and "Lover Come Back To Me" – and the cover has a portrait of Billie by David Stone Martin! Velvet Mood is a record with a velvet mood, but one with a bit of an edge – as you might expect from Billie Holiday in the 50s, hardly the stuff of a too-soft vocal date! The album's got Holiday working in wonderful small combo mode – getting some key Verve backup from players who include Sweets Edison on trumept, Benny Carter on alto sax, Barney Kessel on guitar, and Jimmy Rowles on piano – a warmly intimate group who really fit the sad-tinged vocals from Billie. Tracks are longish – maybe a bit more so than usual for a Holiday Verve session – and the set list includes beautiful renditions of "What's New", "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "When Your Lover Has Gone". Next is Lady Sings The Blues – possibly one of the most essential Billie Holiday albums for Verve – a set that carries the same title as her famous autobiography, and which also features many key numbers from her songbook at the time! The feel here is quite easygoing and relaxed – with small group backing behind Billie's vocals, which themselves are recorded cleanly and clearly throughout. One side features backing by a combo that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, and Paul Quinichette on tenor – and the other features a group that includes Bobby Tucker on piano, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Barney Kessel on guitar, and the great Willie Smith on alto sax. Titles include plenty of classics – including "God Bless The Child", "Strange Fruit", "Lady Sings The Blues", "No Good Man", "Good Morning Heartache", "I Must Have That Man", and "Trav'lin' Light". All Or Nothing At All is beautiful Billie from the last years of her life. The material was recorded in 1956 and 1957 in Hollywood, featuring Barney Kessel, Ben Wesbster, Harry Edison, and Jimmy Rowles – all grooving nicely in small group formation. The tracks have a wonderfully fragile quality – and although standards, are still some of Billie's nicest work for Verve. Titles include "April In Paris", "All Or Nothing At All", "We'll Be Together Again", and "But Not For Me". Great David Stone Martin cover, too! CD

Sarah's working here in an intimate group arranged by Ernie Wilkins, and featuring some sublime solo work from Clifford Brown, Paul Quinichette, and Herbie Mann – alongside rhythm from the trio of Jimmy Jones, Joe Benjamin, and Max Roach. Sarah's vocals are incredible – curving, turning, and lilting with a tremendous amount of jazz-based inflection – and titles include "Lullaby Of Birdland", "April In Paris", "September Song", "He's My Guy", and "I'm Glad There Is You".

Bethlehem, 1958. Used ... $4.99
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". Plus the CD reissue includes the following bonus tracks in stereo: "Trouble In Mind", "Kidney Stew", and "Hold It Right There". CD

VariousJazz For Hi-Fi Lovers (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dawn/Modern Harmonic, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 24.99
A classic 50s album issued to appeal to the hi-fi crowd, but one that's a lot hipper than most – as the contents here aren't bachelor pad easy listening, and instead feature gems from the legendary modern jazz label, Dawn Records! Dawn always had an ear for unusual settings, formations of players, and unconventional expressions in jazz – modes that always make their music a bit different than work from Blue Note, Prestige, or other bigger 50s labels – even when the same players are involved. 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.
