Don ByasJazz Free & Easy (Regent) ... LP
Regent, Early 50s. Very Good ... $16.99
Nice album that features some great swinging sides by tenorist Byas – a true giant in his own right, but a player who wasn't that often recorded in small group sides like these. The tracks have that nicely rough Savoy feel, with good room for Byas to solo, and a focus on strong straight playing. Titles include "Free & Easy", "Byas A Drink", "Donby", "Candy", and "I Don't Know Why". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label Regent pressing with deep groove – heavy, and nice and clean. Vinyl has a very short click on one cut, but overall is great – more VG+. Cover is nice too.)

Dizzy GillespieSchool Days ... LP
Regent/Savoy, 1951. Very Good ... $14.99
A bebop classic from Dizzy Gillespie – a full album comprised of some famous 78s recorded for the Savoy label at the start of the 50s – the kind of hard-grooving material that made Diz a fan favorite right from the start! There's some nice use of vocals in the mix – not just from Dizzy, but also from Joe Carroll as well – an overlooked vocalese genius from the early days of bebop – not as well-known as Eddie Jefferson or King Pleasure, but working here in a very similar spirit! Diz sings with Joe a bit too, and other players include JJ Johnson on trombone, Milt Jackson on vibes, Bill Graham on alto and baritone sax, and Wynton Kelly on piano. Cuts include "Bopsie's Blues", "School Days", "We Love To Boogie", "Umbrella Man", "I Couldn't Beat The Rap", "Pop's Confession", and "Lady Be Good". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Regent pressing with a deep groove and RVG etching. Cover has small seam splits.)

✨✧ RegentsBarbara Ann ... CD
Gee/Warner (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A legendary set from The Regents – a blue-eyed vocal group who were every bit as important as The Four Seasons and Beach Boys, even though their legacy never lasted as long! The quintet are in top form here – really more soul than rock and pop, with an approach that's extremely faithful to the best New York doo wop acts of the time – and production that really lets the interplay stay upfront, with only a bit of rhythm to get things going on the more upbeat numbers. This approach is heard to best effect on the album's classic title cut – "Barbara Ann" – and also comes through on the ballads as well. Other titles include "Laura My Darling", "A Sunday Kind Of Love", "Just Cry", "Lonesome Boy", "A Fool In Love", "Your Love Captured Me", and "I'm So Lonely". CD
