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 ... CD
Verve, 1951/1952/1954. Used ... $26.99
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

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".

✨✧ Paul QuinichetteFor Basie ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 masking tape on all seams, wide on top, and some pen on back.)

✨✧ Paul Quinichette, Buck Clayton, Nat Pierce, et alBasie Reunion ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. New Copy ... 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".

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. Poor ... $0.99
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. NOTE – This copy is in POOR condition, with numerous deep marks, most likely with skips. Cover has a half split top seam, corner wear, with discoloration and a torn corner on the back paste-on.)

✨✧ 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 mostly split seams.)

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.

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

Eddie Cleanhead VinsonClean Head's Back In Town (Eddie Vinson Sings) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
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.)

✨✧ Sarah VaughanSarah Vaughan (aka Sarah Vaughan With Clifford Brown) ... CD
EmArcy/Polygram, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD
