Amina BarakaAmina Baraka & The Red Microphone ... CD
ESP, 2017. Used ... $7.99
Amina Baraka's holding a megaphone on the cover, but she hardly needs it at all – given the righteous power of her voice on this album – still completely amazing after all these years! The album follows in the best tradition of work started by Amiri Baraka back in the 60s – a mixture of spoken knowledge and avant jazz, with backing by a group that includes Ras Moshe Burnett on tenor and flute, Rocco John Iacavone on curved soprano sax and piano, John Pietaro on drums and percussion, and Laurie Towers on bass. The approach is wonderful – and the record really feels like some lost underground relic of the 70s, the sort that the ESP label might have issued back in the day. Titles include "The Fascist", "Time Step", "The Spirit Of Billy BAng", "For Margaret Walker Alexander", and "Afro American Child". CD

Red GarlandHalleloo-y-all ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Red's usual trio bag is given a bit of a soul jazz twist (or perhaps we should say "a bit more of a soul jazz twist" since Red's always pretty darn soulful!) – in this set of tracks that has a slight gospel piano sound to it, and which also features Red playing organ on one track! Red's not the greatest talent on the instrument, but we always like the chance to hear a pianist hitting the Hammond – and with backing by Sam Jones and Art Taylor, he does the job pretty nicely. Titles include "Back Slidin", "Revelation Blues", "I'll Never Be Free", and "Everytime I Feel The Spirit". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has mostly split top & bottom seams. Opening has a long, slim cut that goes down most of the opening.)

Red GarlandRed Garland's Piano ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Good+ ... $24.99
Red Garland's piano was certainly humming strong at the time of this session – as Red's trio were one of the key rhythm components of many Prestige albums of the late 50s, but also a real starring act on their own! The album's got a laidback, almost mellow feel that's a bit different from some of the Garland accompaniment on horn-based sessions – a style that's introspective, but always spirited – sprightly, but never flowery – that magical style that allowed Garland to bridge different worlds of jazz piano in the 50s. Paul Chambers is a perfect accompaniment here on bass, Art Taylor's work on drums is a masterpiece of understatement, and although the titles are all familiar, they're certainly given a special Garland touch! Titles include "The Very Thought Of You", "If I Were A Bell", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "I Know Why", and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has moderate wear & aging, with tape along all seems.)

Allen GinsbergAllen Ginsberg Reads Kaddish – A 20th Century American Ecstatic Narrative Poem (red colored vinyl) ... LP
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99 20.98
The one-and-only entry in the Verbatum series from Atlantic Records – a proposed spoken word offshoot of the label – but one that only ever issued this fantastic 60s reading by Allen Ginsberg! As you might guess from the cover's beautiful photograph by Richard Avedon, Ginsberg is at the height of his hippie years here – and the poem Kaddish is a freewheeling, spiritually-infused work that is quite different than some of the earlier beat material. Ginsberg draws both on his Jewish roots and his increasing conflict with society for the piece – which is presented here in a lively recording done at Brandeis in 1964. Reissue features new notes and Ginsberg items for the package! LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1700 on red vinyl.)

Dexter Gordon, Red Rodney, Von Freeman, et alCharlie Parker Memorial Concert ... LP
Cadet, 1970. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
In Chicago, the cult of Bird fanatics probably lived harder than in other cities – and in the few decades after Charlie Parker's death, the city was host to annual Bird Memorial concerts during the month of August. This obscure 2LP set on Cadet does a good job of documenting the energy and comraderie that went into those sessions – as it captures tunes from four different performances during the series, all recorded at Chicago's North Park Hotel. Players include Dexter Gordon, Howard McGhee, Vi Redd, Lee Konitz, Art Hoyle, Von Freeman, Jodie Christian, Roy Haynes, Muhal Richard Abrams, Eddie Jefferson, and Kenny Dorham – and the set's a great crossection of players – from the bop to the less obvious Parker-philes – in a strong illustration of Bird's still-consistent influence even at the end of the 60s. Titles include "Ornithology", "Yardbird Suite", "Disappointed", "Parker's Mood", "Now's The Time", and "Billie's Bounce". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has a cut corner and some wear.)

✨✧ Sonny RedSonny Red ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. Used ... $8.99
A fantastic album as a leader from Sonny Red – a saxophonist who never got much chance to record under his own name, but always gave us something special when he did! Sonny recorded famously with Donald Byrd and Curtis Fuller in the 60s – but here, he's in an even hipper 70s mode of his own – a bit modal, a bit spiritual – in ways that make the whole album feel like some of the best 70s efforts on the Black Jazz label, with a righteous quality we might never have expected in Red a decade before! Sonny blows tenor, alto, and flute – all of them with a sharp, soulful edge – and he works here in a fantastic quartet that includes Cedar Walton on piano, whose own shadings give the record a lot of depth – plus the great Billy Higgins on drums, and Herbie Lewis on bass. Titles include a great remake of "Mustang", which Red recorded with Donald Byrd – plus "And Then Again", "Love Song", "Tears", and "Rodan". CD

Red RodneyBird Lives ... LP
Muse, 1973. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Charlie Parker may live again in the title of this set – but given the strengths of the group, the album would be great even without a reference to Bird! The setting's a bop one, as you'd guess – but there's also a lot more going on here too, given that some of the tunes are longer and open – and almost show some of the maturation of all the players on the date – especially saxophonist Charles McPherson and pianist Barry Harris, both of whom got their start with boppish ideas, but who were really branching out by the time of this early 70s session. The quintet also features some excellent rhythm from Sam Jones on bass and Roy Brooks on drums – both players who bring plenty of fresh ideas to the table – and Red Rodney's work on trumpet has lots of earthy notes that show a strong sense of personality too. Titles include "Big Foot", "I'll Remember April", "Donna Lee", "Chasing The Bird", "Round Midnight", and "52nd Street Theme". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo.)

A great session of 70s bop revival from the team of Sonny Stitt and Red Holloway – working here in the warm and sunny style of the great Catalyst label! The album Forecast has the two hornmen blowing to acoustic accompaniment from a trio that includes Art Hillary on piano, Larry Gales on bass, and Clarence Johnston on drums – jamming in boppish formation on tunes that include "Lester Leaps In", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Forecast: Sonny & Red", and "All God's Chillun".

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 1 (red cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that's virtually the blueprint for the sound of Hammond organ and tenor sax in soul jazz– the first of Eddie Lockjaw Davis' great run of cookbook albums for Prestige! The record features Lockjaw's gutsy tenor in a group alongside Jerome Richardson's lighter flute – both dancing wonderfully together over organ lines from a young Shirley Scott – playing here with a style that's a bit earthier and more bluesy than some of her later work. Rhythm is by George Duviver on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and tracks include the classic 12 minute jammer "In The Kitchen", plus shorter tracks "Three Deuces", "The Chef", and "Have Horn, Will Blow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing, with deep groove & RVG stamp. Cover has a half split spine.)

Groovy session that features this star tenorist of the Jack McDuff group as the leader, but which also has the same group backing him up – including McDuff on organ, George Benson on guitar, and Joe Dukes on drums. The set list has a good batch of originals, with the same sort of groove and strong sense of humor as the best McDuff recordings from the time. Tracks include "Brother Red", "No Tears", "Shout Brother", and "Something Funny". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don Reno & Red Smiley & The Tennessee Cut UpsReno & Smiley – The Early Years – 1951 to 1959 (4CD set) ... CD
King/Gusto, 1950s. New Copy 4CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A long-overdue look at the early recordings by the team of Don Reno and Red Smiley – a pair of King Records artists in the 50s who were as important to the rising sophistication of bluegrass as The Stanley Brothers or Bill Monroe! The pair could harmonize in a way that was every bit as sweet and heavenly as The Louvin Brothers – and Don Reno especially had a great range that really came in handy with the range of material the group covered – styles that are especially strong on spiritual and heartbreaking themes, which the pair did better than most! This package is a treasure trove – the first time that this material has properly been presented – and although handled by the sometimes-cheapo Gusto label, presented here with full liner notes, photos, and lots of details on the vintage King Records sessions – really a Bear Family style of presentation. The 4CD set features 109 tracks in all – and titles include "Mack's Hoedown", "Love Call Waltz", "Mountain Church", "I'm Using My Bible For A Roadmap", "When I Safely Reach That Other Shore", "I Can Hear The Angels Singing", "Mountain Rosa Lee", "She Has Forgotten", "Money Marbles & Chalk", "Dark As A Dungeon", "I Want To Know", "Missle Ride", "Banjo Riff", "Kneel Down", "Cumberland Gap", and lots lots more.

✨✧ Lightnin HopkinsTexas Blues Man (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Arhoolie, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A late 60s recording by Lightning Hopkins – but one of his rootsiest of the decade, thanks to the gritty production of the Arhoolie label! There's a really personal, intimate feel to the record – almost as if the label just set up in Hopkins' living room while he was running through a few songs – which, at some level, is exactly what they did – and which is what makes the record so great! The mode really makes the album a standout in Hopkins' large catalog – and titles include "Slavery", "Take A Walk", "Tom Moore Blues", "Watch My Fingers", and "Love Is Like A Hydrant". LP, Vinyl record album

Vogue/Sony (UK), 1950. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very cool album – the original Vogue Records overseas issue of material that came out in the US on the small Discovery label! The music is erly genius from vibist Red Norvo – the kind of record that really makes you get why he was so popular back in the day! The style here is more "sound" than jazz – a sublime blend of Norvo's airy vibes with the bass of Charles Mingus and guitar of Tal Farlow – both tremendous players who put aside their egos here, and fold beautifully into the other-worldly sound of the record! Titles include "I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me", "I'll Remember April", "Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart", "September Song", "Little White Lies", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "Move".

✨✧ Red CallenderSwingin' Suite ... LP
Crown, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful bass work from 50s LA player Red Callender – heard here on this classic side recorded for the Modern imprint. Swingin Suite is easily one of Red's tightest sessions – a date that has Callender's basslines strongly leading a nonet of players that includes Harry Jones on trumpet, John Ewing on trombone, Willie Green on alto sax, and Buddy Collette on flute and tenor. Collette's lines have a nice sharp edge throughout, and soar out beautifully amidst the bigger backings – and although a "suite", the whole session's got a much more relaxed feel than that compositional title might make you think. Tracks include "On Again", "Greenery", "Pastel", "Dancers", "October Blue", "Bihari", "Skyline", and "Outlines". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Crown pressing. Cover has clear tape on all seams.)
