Chet BakerChet Baker In New York ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Quite a great session for Chet Baker – one that has him recording in New York, with a hip lineup that includes some incredibly soulful players! The tunes on the set feature Chet in either quartet or quintet formation – working with Johnny Griffin on tenor, Al Haig on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. Tracks are longish, and the sound is much more in the mode of Riverside at the time, than the sound of Chet's earlier Pacific Jazz records – and Chet holds his own nicely in this company, giving a hint of the style to come in a few more years. Titles include "Fair Weather", "Hotel 49", "When Lights Are Low", "Solar", and "Blue Thoughts". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art BlakeyCaravan ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good ... $16.99
One of the best non-Blue Note sessions from Art Blakey in the 60s – a really searing set that features the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers – a group that's filled with legends who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Reggie Workman on bass, and Cedar Walton on piano! The sextet format really pushes the energy of the group – and allows for even more wonderful horn interplay than before – while still allowing for lots of solo space for individual voices. Tracks are long and open, with a bouncing lyrical groove that's more soaring than some of the heavy-hitting earlier albums from Blakey, but no less pleasing – and possibly even a bit more soulful! Titles include "Sweet N Sour", "This Is For Albert", "Skylark", and "Thermo". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ByrdLatin Impressions ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The Latin Impressions here are more Brazilian than Cuban – and maybe a bit Spanish, too – given the strong use of acoustic guitar from Charlie Byrd! The set's got a laidback, open feel – and Byrd's guitar work is mighty deft, yet without all the frills and flowers of some of the more dramatic, emotive players of the time – a great illustration of the huge shift that the early bossa guitar recordings had at a global level. Byrd was one of the first big American proponents of bossa, and you can definitely hear that influence at work here – amidst additional guitar from Gene Byrd, bass from Keter Betts, and drums from Bill Reichenbach. A few tunes feature Charlie on solo guitar with no backing – and titles include "O Pato", "Homage A Villa Lobos", "Bogota", "Vals", "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Amor Flamengo", and "Azul Tiple".

Bill EvansHow My Heart Sings ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good- ... $69.99
Magical music from the very first note – the kind of record you need to hear if you've ever doubted the genius of Bill Evans! The sound here is subtle, and supple – but still often more revolutionary than that of the countless albums it inspired in years to come – and Evans is completely at home on the record, working with bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Paul Motian – both players who helped to re-invent the role of rhythm in the piano combo of the time! Titles include a sublime reading of "How My Heart Sings", plus "Walking Up", "Show Type Tune", "Summertime", "34 Skidoo", and "In Your Own Sweet Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonBig Bags – Milt Jackson Orchestra ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A sweet larger group session from vibist Milt Jackson – proof that he was really trying to stretch his wings, and get into new things during the 60s! The set's got Milt working with some great help from Tadd Dameron and Ernie Wilkins on larger group arrangements – nicely swinging charts that have a nice touch of modern, but lots of straightforward grooving too! Milt's the primary soloist, buoyed by an orchestra built around a rhythm section of Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and either Connie Cay or Philly Joe on drums – plus loads of great horn players like Clark Terry, Nat Adderley, Melba Liston, James Moody and Jimmy Heath among others. Titles include renditions of "Old Devil Moon", "'Round Midnight", "The Dream Is You", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Echoes", "If You Could See Me Now", "Star Eyes", "Namesake", "If I Should Lose You", and "Later Than You Think".

Johnny PaceChet Baker Introduces Johnny Pace ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Given that Chet Baker's a singer himself, it's a bit surprising that he's working here with another vocalist – but that oddity aside, the album's a great little session that's got an intimate feel that's a bit different than Baker's own vocal work! Pace's voice is much fuller and richer than Chet's – with a range that would have been very much at home doing more dramatic pop material of the era, yet which also fits in very comfortably in this laidback small group session. Baker himself plays trumpet on the record, backing Johnny up – and other players include Herbie Mann on flute, Joe Berle on piano, Jimmie Burke on bass, and either Philly Joe Jones or Ed Thigpen on drums. Titles include "All Or Nothing At All", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Yesterdays", "Everything I've Got Belongs To You", "When The Sun Comes Out", and "This Is Always". LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaMongo Soul ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s/1969. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Late 60's issue of some of Mongo's great Latin jazz sides for Riverside from the early 60's. He's playing here with great players like Pat Patrick, Marty Sheller, Bobby Capers, and Chick Corea – and the band runs through classic Mongo material like "Watermelon Man", "Get The Money", "Fatback", "Congo Blue", "Happy Now", and "Don't Bother Me No More". The title's an obvious attempt to cash in on the Latin soul craze of the late 60's, but this is the stuff that inspired it. LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz All StarsModern Jazz All Stars – Jazz ... LP
RCA (Japan), Mid 60s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $28.99
Modern jazz, with plenty of soul – a hip Japanese take on the best US jazz modes of the late 50s, with heavy emphasis on hardbop and soul jazz styles! The group's led by pianist Norio Maeda, who also did the arrangements – and the lineup features trumpet, tenor, and alto sax – a great frontline that takes on some very Riverside-like touches at times – and which gets a bit of guitar assistance at others. Titles are mostly versions of familiar jazz tunes from a few years before, arranged freshly by Maeda – and cuts include "Black March", "Moanin", "Work Song", "Sister Sadie", "Take Five", and "L'Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud".

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaAfro Roots (Mongo/Yambu) ... LP
Fantasy, 1958/1959. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A nice Prestige 2-fer collecting two early sides Mongo cut for Fantasy in the late 50s. The first, released under the title Mongo, is a no-nonsense batch of Latin jazz tracks, arranged by himself and Francisco Aguabella, who's sort of the co-leader of the group on the set! Players include Emil Richards, Paul Horn, Armando Pereza, Carlos Vidal, and Willie Bobo – and as you can imagine by that lineup, there's plenty of heavy duty percussive action! Jose Chombo Silva plays a bit of tenor – and titles include "Chano Pozo", "Mazacote", "Los Conguitos", and "Afro Blue". Yambu, another of Mongo's great early records, is the second LP of the set. It's got a spooky Afro-Cuban sound, and a great assortment of drummers that includes Francisco Aquabella, Carlos Vidal, Willie Bobo, and Modesto Duran. The overall vibe is much more traditional than Mongo's other albums – and there's none of the pop Latin jazz of his years at Columbia records, or his "Watermelon Man" era at Riverside. Cuts include "Mi Guanguanco", "Timbales & Bongo", "Yeye", and "Columbia", and the sound is nice and raw. LP, Vinyl record album

Milestone, Early 60s/1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of those Milestone 70s two-fer sets, filled with Mongo's classic early Latin jazz sides cut for Riverside in the 60s. As you'd expect, there's lots of tight jazzy moments and straight ahead hard jamming, courtesy of an all-star cast that includes Nat Adderley, Ronnie Capers, Paul Serrano and Jimmy Cobb – along with Pat Patrick from Sun Ra's Arkestra. The vibe is hot and heavy, and a totally full-on Latin jamming approach, lots of tight conga by Mongo, and some firey solos on reeds! 19 tracks in all, including "Skins", "Fatback", "Sweet Tater Pie", "Dot, Dot, Dot", "Tacos", "Happy Now", "Tumba Le Le", "African Song", "Carmela", and the long groover "Congo Blue".

Excellent Milestone 2-fer of sides Mongo cut for Battle, then licensed to Riverside, and finally collected here. These sessions are from the early 60s, and feature a gang of the best jazz and Latin sidemen around at the time, including Pat Patrick (of Sun Ra's Arkestra!), Nat Adderley and Bobby Capers and a massive rhythm section with Victor Venagas, Kako, Chihuahua Martinez and Julian Cabrera. There's a hot hard Latin vibe throughout, whether it's the tunes from the first two studio sides, issued as Watermelon Man or the live set captured as Mongo At The Village Gate which makes up the second LP. 22 slammin' tracks including "Yeh, Yeh", "Funny Money", "Go Git It!", "Bayou Roots", "Mongo's Groove", "The Jungle Bit", "Fatback", and "Nothing For Nothing".

✨✧ Cannonball Adderley with Sergio MendesQuiet Nights Of Quiet Stars ... LP
Capitol/Pickwick, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Blue MitchellBring It Home To Me ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – one of his most solid sides as a leader from the 60s, and a well-deserved treasure in the Blue Note catalog! The album's quite different than the straight soul jazz of Blue's early days on Riverside – or the more arranged dates of the late 60s – and it features him moving in a soulful, lyrical, modal style – quite similar to Horace Silver in conception, but with a fresh execution that's mighty nice – and which marks Mitchell as one of the fresher trumpet voices of his generation! The whole group's great, too – and the lineup includes Junior Cook on tenor, Blue's old bandmate from Horace Silver's group – plus Harold Mabern on piano, who really helps shape the sound of the record, Gene Taylor on bass and Billy Higgins on drums. Tracks include gems from Mitchell, Jimmy Heath, and Tom McIntosh – titles that include "Bring It Home To Me", "Blues 3 For 1", "Port Rico Rock", and "Ginger Bread Boy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty pressing, with a Van Gelder stamp. Record has one tiny bump that causes a noise for a few spins (kind of a low thud in the background) – but is otherwise great. Cover has some wear on two corners.)

✨✧ Bud PowellPortrait Of Thelonious ... LP
Columbia, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite an interesting session from Bud Powell – a tribute to Thelonious Monk, recorded in Paris in 1961, but not issued until 1965, shortly before his death. Cannonball Adderley was the producer on the session, and it's got the same sort of groundbreaking approach as some of the other Cannonball-produced albums for Riverside from the same stretch – a bit more farther reaching than the players' work in an ordinary setting. Powell's take on the Monk sound is a very unusual one – a bit more fragile and tentative than Monk's own interpretations of the material, but performed with an equal commitment to a modern sound overall. Backing is from Kenny Clarke on drums and Pierre Michelot on bass – and titles include "No Name Blues", "Ruby My Dear", "Off Minor", "Squatty", and "Thelonious". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins (Blue Note Re-Issue Series) ... LP
Blue Note, 1956/1957. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The rarest of all the Sonny Rollins Blue Note sessions – and possibly the best! The record captures Rollins at a key turning point – emerging from his firey bop years, moving into a much more complicated, introspective tenor style that was a perfect showcase for his developing genius for improvisation. He's playing here in a quintet with Wynton Kelly, Donald Byrd, Gene Ramey, and Max Roach – but as with all Rollins Blue Note sessions, his tenor is the dominant force. Titles include "Bluesnote", "Plain Jane", "How Are Things In Gocca Morra", and "Decision". As classic as it comes for late 50s Blue Note – and a key meeting between Sonny Rollins and Thelonious Monk! The group on the set features Rollins and Monk with JJ Johnson, Paul Chambers, and Art Blakey – all of whom push things more in the direction of Blue Note's sound of the time, then Monk's own recordings of the period for Riverside. But the contrast of modes makes for a really startling sound – one that has Monk "monking" it up next to the straighter rhythm section, and bringing out some more modern tones in Rollins' tenor work, titles include "Why Don't I", "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", "Misterioso", and "Reflections".
