Don ByasJazz Free & Easy (Regent) ... LP
Regent, Early 50s. Very Good ... $24.99
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.)

Tommy FlanaganIt's Magic (aka Jazz – It's Magic) ... LP
Regent/Savoy, 1957. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The set's got Tommy Flanagan on the cover, but it was originally one of the great dates that Curtis Fuller cut for the Savoy label in the late 50s – material that's much more hard-edged than his Blue Note sessions, and which points the way towards a rich legacy of jazz work in decades to come! The group here has a nicely open, laidback approach – that Savoy style that was almost a blowing session mode, but a bit more controlled – long tracks handled by the group with some of the energy they might bring to a live club performance of the time. The groove is mostly hardbop – with Curtis Fuller's trombone and Sonny Red's alto taking strong solos – in a group that also features Tommy Flanagan on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. Titles include a medley of "It's Magic/My One & Only Love/They Didn't Believe Me" – plus "Two Ton", "Soul Station", "Club Car", and "Upper Berth". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie VenturaEast Of Suez ... LP
Regent, Late 40s. Very Good ... $6.99
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.)

✨✧ JJ JohnsonJazz South Pacific ... LP
Regent, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although this looks like it should be a hard bop version of tracks from the hit musical, it's actually just a swinging set of jazz featuring JJ Johnson on trombone, Howard McGhee on trumpet, and Rudy Williams on tenor. Short tracks with tight solos, and mostly swing standards as the song list, including "Perdido", "Man With A Horn","Mood Indigo", "St Louis Blues", "Stormy Weather", "One O'Clock Jump", "Stomping At The Savoy" and more. And the liner notes claim it was recorded in Guam, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original green label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some seam splitting.)

✨✧ 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.
