Billy EckstineYou Call It Madness! ... LP
Regent, Late 40s. Very Good ... $14.99
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
(Green label Regent pressing. Cover has light wear & tiny peeled spot in one corner.)

Dizzy GillespieSchool Days (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Regent/Savoy (Japan), 1951. Used ... $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". CD

✨✧ Joe WilliamsJoe Williams Sings Everyday ... LP
Regent, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $4.99
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
(Red label Savoy pressing. Cover has split seams, stickers, and notes in marker. Labels have stickers and some marker.)
