Paul QuinichetteFor Basie ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good- ... $9.99
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 (Trip) ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good (reissue)... $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 "Pablo's Roonie", "Shorty George", "Grasshopper", and "Tropical Intrigue". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later Trip pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and some wear.)

✨✧ Charlie Rouse & Paul QuinichetteChase Is On (70s pressing) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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
(Cover has some wear and a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Paul QuinichetteFor Basie ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Basie tribute by Basie alum playing tunes from the Count's book, this hard swinging side exemplifies the earlier swing orientation of the Prestige label, before they moved into other realms of soul jazz, bop and avant garde. Long tracks, with strong solos. CD

✨✧ Paul QuinichetteLike Basie (aka Like Who) ... CD
United Artists/Mighty Quinn, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 QuinichetteVice Pres (Trip reissue) ... LP
EmArcy, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Trip pressing, with a cut corner.)

✨✧ Paul Quinichette, Buck Clayton, Nat Pierce, et alBasie Reunion ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

LaVern BakerLaVern Baker Sings Bessie Smith ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good ... $19.99
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.)

Count BasieCount Basie & His Orchestra (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
An early collaboration between Count Basie and Norman Granz – and a real cooker too! Granz shows some great foresight here – grabbing Basie at a time when his group was just getting its groove back, and really learning how to hit a more modern sound! The set includes some great tenor sax work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Paul Quinichette –a nd titles include "Sure Thing", "Jive At Five", "Every Tub", and "New Basie Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Herman & Tito PuenteHerman's Heat & Puente's Beat! ... LP
Everest, 1958. Very Good ... $9.99
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 HolidayLady Sings the Blues ... LP
Verve, 1956. Near Mint- ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing. Cover has peeled patches from tape removal on back.)

Dinah WashingtonFor Those In Love ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Fair ... $3.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Mercury pressing. Cover has some aging, a split bottom seam, a partially split top seam, a name in pen on the front and a stamp on the back.)

Dawn, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
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
(Sundazed pressing.)
