Don ByasJazz Free & Easy (Regent) ... LP
Regent, Early 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
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.)

✨✧ Art Pepper/Sonny ReddArt Pepper/Sonny Redd – Two Altos ... LP
Regent, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $9.99
2 of our favorite 50s alto talents together on one LP – both players who handle their instrument better than most of their contemporaries, and always with a unique and personal sound! The album offers 4 tracks by Art Pepper – recorded with groups that include Hampton Hawes on piano, Larry Bunker on drums, Jack Montrose on tenor, and either Russ Freeman or Claude Williamson on piano – and 2 tracks by Sonny Redd, recorded with a quintet that includes Pepper Adams on baritone, Doug Watkins on bass, Wynton Kelly on piano, and Elvin Jones on drums – more of a Prestige lineup than a Savoy one, and really remarkable for the set. The Redd tracks – "Watkins Products" and "Redds Head" – are the longer and more enticing numbers on the set – but we should also say that we love Pepper's work for Savoy, and think it's some of his best – and find his tracks pretty darn nice, too. Titles by Pepper include "Deep Purple", "Everything Happens To Me", "These Foolish Things", and "What's New". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label Savoy pressing in a red tinted cover.)

Charlie VenturaEast Of Suez ... LP
Regent, Late 40s. Very Good ... $2.99
A full Regent album of earlier Savoy singles cut by Charlie Ventura – all in that great mix of bop and swing he was known for at the time, with a really cool groove overall! A few of the cuts have vocals by Buddy Stewart – boppish, scatting vocals that really swing nicely – and the rest of the tracks are instrumental, graced with great tenor from Charlie, plus trombone by either Bill Harris or Kai Winding, trumpet from Buck Clayton or Charlie Shavers, and guitar from Bill DeArango. Titles include "Synthesis", "Sooth Me", "Blue Champagne", "Baby Baby All The Time", "Eleven Sixty", "CV Jam", and "Let's Jump For Rita". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label Regent pressing – nice and clean. Cover has a tiny bit of seam splitting and a small bit of pen, but this is a very nice copy overall.)

✨✧ VariousGolden Age Of American Rock & Roll – Doo Wop ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Doo wop recordings played a huge role in the early days of rock and roll – and this wonderful set offers up a huge amount of gems you might have otherwise missed! Like the "normal" volumes of the Golden Age Of Rock & Roll series from Ace Records, the approach here is wonderful – a really full array of sounds from the time that goes way past the hits – in a mode that mixes familiar numbers with lesser-remembered tracks that were definitely important at the time, but might have been lost in the shifting sands of time. The folks at Ace pull together doo wop work from a huge variety of labels – in styles that are both rock and soul, and illustrate the color-blind approach that most group fans had at the time – a love of listening that didn't care where the groups were from, as long as they could make magic with their voices! The notes are great – deeply detailed, on each track within – and titles include "If" by The Paragons, "Runaround" by The Regents, "Don't Take The Stars" by The Mystics, "Little Darlin" by The Diamonds, "What Will I Tell My Heart" by The Harptones, "Once In Awhile" by The Chimes, "Peanuts" by Rick & The Keens, "Wizard Of Love" by The Lydells, "Till Then" by The Classics, "Try The Impossible" by Lee Andrews & The Hearts, "Fools Fall In Love" by The Drifters, "It's Unbelievable" by The Larks, and "The Reason" by The 5 Chanels.
