Don ByasJazz Free & Easy (Regent) ... LP
Regent, Early 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
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 ... $19.99
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.)

✨✧ Dorothy AshbyJazz Harpist ... LP
Regent, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby has always had one of the most unusual sounds around – and even though it might sound a bit crazy at first, her mix of harp playing with tight jazzy backing is always a winning combination. This early album has Ms Ashby playing with a groovy little combo that includes Frank Wess on flute, Ed Thigpen on drums, and Wendell Marshall on bass. Even at this early age, Dorothy shows her writing skills well with the originals "Aeolian Groove, "Lamentation", and "Spicy" – and she does a nice job with the other standards she chooses to cover. A nice record, with a soulful sound that you wouldn't expect! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Billy EckstineDuke, The Blues, Billy Eckstine, & Me! ... LP
Regent, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great set of older material, recorded for Savoy when Mr. B had his classic group of boppers – and issued here during the mid 50s in a very goofy looking cover. If you're looking for material by Billy, this is the great stuff – produced during the time when he was bridging the swing and bop camps with his lively band that included Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Miles Davis. Titles include "Blues For Sale", "Blues", "Oop Bop Sha Bam", "In My Solitude", and "Tell Me Pretty Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy green label Regent pressing, with an address sticker. Cover has small seam splits.)

✨✧ Billy EckstineYou Call It Madness! ... LP
Regent, Late 40s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Mr B – a collection of his earlier Savoy singles, assembled for a wonderful 50s album on the Regent label – and featuring some of the best jazz-based work in the classic Eckstine mode! As is well known, Billy's group of the time featured nothing but top-shelf jazz players – and the nature of the tunes on the set really let the best solo work come to the forefront. There's almost equal parts horn and piano solos as there are Eckstine vocal passages on the album – and titles include "Last Night", "Long Long Journey", "All I Sing Is Blues", "A Cottage For Sale", and "You Call It Madness". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label Regent pressing. Cover has a light stain.)

✨✧ Joe WilliamsJoe Williams Sings Everyday ... LP
Regent, Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Incredible early work from Joe Williams – harder, rawer, and spookier than any of his more famous sides from the late 50s and 1960s! The album's got a style that's almost R&B in parts – and features Joe effortlessly swinging his way through a set list that includes "It's Raining Again", "Detour Ahead", "Every Day", "Blow Mr Low", "Always On The Blue Side", and the incredible "Safe Sane & Single". The recording quality is great, too – looser and rougher than some of Joe's Verve work, with a nice toothy edge! LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy green label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ 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
