John Coltrane & Paul QuinichetteCattin' With Coltrane & Quinichette ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A great meeting of tenor sax talents old and young – as the up-and-coming John Coltrane plays alongside Paul "Vice Pres" Quinichette – in a classic Prestige session of well-blown saxophone work! The rhythm section on the album features Mal Waldron on piano, Julian Euell on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums – but the real focus here is on the tenor giants in the title – working together in warm spirit that's surprisingly well matched! Titles include "Sunday", "Cattin", "Anatomy", and "Vodka". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with obi! Obi has some wrinkles, and cover has some light wear.)

Stan Getz/Wardell Gray/Zoot Sims/Paul QuinichetteTenors Anyone? (Biograph) ... LP
Dawn/Biograph, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A mixed-player session, but a nice batch of classic 50s tenor work from the players named in the title! Each artist gets to lead 2 tracks apiece, except for Getz, who gets 4 tracks to his own in a nice group that includes Al Haig and Jimmy Raney. Styles are a mix of Lester Young mellow and tighter, more bop-oriented lines – and titles include "Poop Deck", "Ante Room", "In A Pinch", "Skull Buster", and "Blues For The Month Of May". Nice goofy cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(1980 Biograph pressing.)

Bennie Green/Paul QuinichetteBlow Your Horn! ... LP
Decca, Late 50s. Very Good ... $18.99
Great Decca album that features rare 50's sides by Bennie Green and Paul Quinichette. Side one's got 6 hard blowin' tracks from Bennie, with some of the best material he recorded away from the Prestige label. Tracks include "Blow Your Horn", "I Wanna Blow", "Rhumblues", and "Blues In Lament", and the set features him with orchestra or quintet (which features Billy Root on tenor and Cliff Small on piano). The Quinichette sides are equally great, and have him playing with small – one of which includes Marlowe Morris on organ! Tracks on the Quinichette side include "The Heat's Off", "I Remember Harlem", and "The Heat's On". Great stuff, and a really tough one to find. LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy black label pressing. Cover has wide clear tape holding the seams, with some yellowing.)

Paul QuinichetteLike Who? ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The "who" in the title is Basie – as this was one of many late 50s outings cut by Basie sidemen, in an attempt to recapture the energy of his hit sound. 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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing, with deep groove! Cover has light wear on top seam, but is nice overall.)

Paul QuinichetteMoods ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good ... $18.99
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
(Blue label Mercury pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear, but is nice overall.)

✨✧ Paul QuinichetteVice Pres (10 inch LP) ... LP
EmArcy, Early 50s. Good+ ... $19.99
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 – titles include "The Hook", "Samie", "Shad Roe", "Bot Bot", and "Paul's Bunion". LP, Vinyl record album
(One side has oxidation, causing some surface noise – and both sides have some marks that click. Cover is nice overall.)

✨✧ Paul Quinichette, Buck Clayton, Nat Pierce, et alBasie Reunion (green cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Vinyl is great overall, but has a very short click in one spot.)

✨✧ Paul QuinichetteOn The Sunny Side (with bonus track) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Paul QuinichetteVice Pres ... CD
Verve, 1951/1952/1954. 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 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
(Out of print Verve Elite Edition.)

✨✧ Charlie Rouse & Paul QuinichetteChase Is On ... CD
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". CD

Woody Herman & Tito PuenteHerman's Heat & Puente's Beat! ... LP
Everest, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99
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 seam splitting.)

✨✧ Billie HolidayBanned From New York City – Live 1948 to 1957 ... CD
Uptown, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $20.99 24.98
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.

Sarah VaughanSarah Vaughan ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good- ... $24.99
A jazz vocal masterpiece from Sarah Vaughn – one of her greatest albums ever, and a record that raised the bar for countless vocal sessions in years to come! 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Mercury EmArcy pressing, with deep groove. Cover has mostly split seams.)

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.

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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Billie HolidayLady Sings the Blues ... CD
Verve, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".
