✨✧ Art Blakey's Jazz MessengersUgetsu – Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers At Birdland (ABC/Riverside) ... LP
Riverside, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Art Blakey's best non-Blue Note albums of the 60s – a hard-wailing live set that fully exploits the best talents of the six-piece version of the Jazz Messengers! The group here is that tremendous sextet that featured Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Cedar Walton on piano – all working with Blakey to rework the earlier mode from his quintet years – in a way that actually allowed for a bit more lyricism and introspection! Titles include Cedar Walton's original "Ugetsu", Curtis Fuller's "Time Off", and Wayn Shorter's great "One By One", "Ping Pong", and "On the Ginza". LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball AdderleyThings Are Getting Better ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – given the great change and evolution in the style of Cannonball Adderley's music – definitely pointed towards the soul jazz fame to come in the 60s! The group here has Adderley's alto in the company of some all-stars who may not be his regular group, but who definitely help keep the whole thing at a top-shelf level throughout – a quintet that features Milt Jackson on vibes, Wynton Kelly on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Blakey on drums. There's still a few echoes of Cannon's earlier bop recordings, but the sound is also moving towards the new modes to come – especially on the classic title cut "Things Are Getting Better". Other cuts include "Just One Of Those Things", "Sounds For Sid", "Groovin High", "Serves Me Right", and "Blues Oriental". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ByrdIn Greenwich Village (At The Village Vanguard/Byrd At The Gate) ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
Two great jazz sets from Charlie Byrd – both recorded in early 60s New York! First up is At The Village Vanguard – a trio set from Charlie Byrd – with Keter Bets on bass and Butty Deppenschmidt on drums – with titles that include "Fantasia On What Side Are You On", "Just Squeeze Me", and "Why Was I Born". On Byrd At The Gate, Charlie's trio gets some great help here from Clark Terry on trumpet and Seldon Powell on tenor – in tracks that include "More", "Ela Me Deixou", "Broadway", "Some Other Spring", and "Shiny Stockings".

Charlie ByrdOnce More – Charlie Byrd's Bossa Nova ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A lovely little record from the man who helped Stan Getz find his bossa – and a set that's done with just a bit more backing than usual from Byrd for the time! The album makes nice use of additional percussion, vibes, cello, and a bit of flugelhorn to back up Byrd's work on acoustic guitar – never in a way that dominates too strongly, with just enough added sound to color in the grooves with a slightly deeper tone. Titles include "Presente De Natal", "Three Note Samba", "Limehouse Blues", "Cancao De Nimar Para Carol", "Chega De Saudade", and "Anna". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Byrd Trio & WoodwindsByrd In The Wind ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good ... $4.99
A sweet batch of gentle tunes from guitarist Charlie Byrd – one of his first albums as a leader, recorded in his hometown of Washington DC, with backings by a small woodwind group. A few tracks have some strong solos by tenorist Buck Hill – an under-recorded DC player – and a few more feature vocals by Byrd's wife, Ginny Byrd. Titles include "Keter's Dirty Blues", "Love Letters", "Cross Your Heart", "Swing 59", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", and "You're A Sweetheart". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny DorhamJazz Contrasts ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Early work by Kenny Dorham as a leader – a Riverside session recorded in two "contrasting" moods that both perfectly show his young talents on the trumpet! Side one is a bit more in a hardbop mode – with two long lyrical tracks ("Falling In Love With Love" and "I'll Remember April") – recorded with a quintet that features Sonny Rollins on tenor, Hank Jones on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Max Roach on drums – with plenty of space for all players to solo nicely! Side two features the same group, but also adds in some work on harp by Betty Glamman – an unusual player, but one who works well in the setting – and really helps to emphasize the sweeter sounds in Kenny's horn! Titles on that side include "La Villa", "Larue", and "My Old Flame". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Dorham with Cannonball AdderleyBlue Spring ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good ... $49.99
A pretty warm and lyrical set by Kenny – accompanied here by a larger group that includes Cecil Payne, David Amram, and Cannonball Adderley on horns, plus a young Cedar Walton on piano. Dorham wrote 4 of the album's tracks, and they provide a perfect showcase for his polished trumpet style. Titles include "Spring Cannon", "Blue Spring", "Poetic", and "Passion Spring".

Johnny GriffinBig Soul (Big Soul Band & White Gardenia) ... LP
Riverside/Milestone, 1960. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
One of those ubiquitous Milestone 70s two-fers combining two nice sides from the little giant. The first set is Big Soul Band, a sweet little album from Johnny – quite different than most of his other sessions at the time, as this one features a big band, as the title says – filled with some strong Chicago and soul jazz players, and featuring killer arrangements by the great Norman Simmons! Simmons' was just bubbling up at the time – and he had a sock soul jazz sound that was part of his time on the Chicago scene, and which, unfortunately, rarely achieved as strong of recorded expression as it did on this album. Griffin's a heck of a great player, even at this age, and the strength of his horn sits nicely in the front of a great ensemble that also includes Pat Patrick, Matthew Gee, Julian Priester, Frank Strozier, Bobby Timmons, Harold Mabern, Vic Sproles, and Charlie Persip. Titles include a number of Simmons originals – like "Meditation", "Panic Room Blues", and "Holla" – plus a great reading of Timmons' "So Tired"! The second LP is Johnny's tribute to Billie Holiday – with Johnny's tenor fronting some larger backing on strings and brass – but hipper than most efforts of this type, thanks to some great arrangements by Melba Liston and Norman Simmons! The record's a nice change from some of Johnny's more full-on bop sessions from the same time – and it's nice to hear that his tenor works equally well on mellow tracks and ballads like "God Bless The Child", "Gloomy Sunday", "Travelin' Light", "Left Alone", and "Detour Ahead".

Johnny GriffinDo Nothing 'Til You Hear From Me ... LP
Riverside, 1963. Very Good- ... $24.99
A moodier session than usual for Griff – but in a nice way – and one that's cut with Buddy Montgomery on vibes and piano, and handled in a laidback soul jazz mode that's a refreshing change from some of his sharper hardbop sides! Highlights include the extended original "Slow Burn", plus renditions of the classics "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me" and "The Midnight Sun Will Never Set". The group's completed by Monk Montgomery on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and in a way, the album sort of feels like one of Monk and Buddy's Mastersounds sessions, with the added touch of a horn player!

Trad revival material by this group that featured Buck Claton on trumpet, Dickie Wells on trombone, Tommy Newson on tenor, Charlie Byrd on guitar, and Gwaltney on alto, clarinet, and vibes. Tracks are short and include some originals, written in a classic 30s KC mode – plus a few older tunes. Titles include "Midnight Mama", "Hello Babe", "Kansas City Ballad", "The Jumping Blues", "Walter Page", and "The New Tulsa Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Ernie HenryLast Chorus ... LP
Riverside, 1956. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A fitting title for a wonderful record – the last album issued under the name of altoist Ernie Henry – an amazing 50s player who recorded famously with Thelonius Monk, but only got to make a handful of his own dates before an untimely early death! The posthumous release brings together some unreleased material cut by Henry for Riverside in a few different styles – a hip octet session with Melba Liston on trombone, Benny Golson on tenor, and Lee Morgan on trumpet; a piano-less quartet date cut with Kenny Dorham on trumpet; a session with Monk on piano and Sonny Rollins on tenor; and a quartet date with Wynton Kelly on piano. Titles include "Melba's Tune", "Cleo's Chant", "Ba Lu Bolivar Ba Lues Are", "Like Someone In Love", "All The Things You Are", and "Beauty & The Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonBig Band Bags (Big Bags/For Someone I Love – Milt Jackson & Big Brass) ... LP
Riverside/Milestone, 1962. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Two excellent early 60s sides from Bags, both casting him in a larger setting than the smaller, tighter ensembles he typically worked in. On Big Bags Jackson takes on a set of 10 standards (mostly) with some help from Tadd Dameron and Ernie Wilkins on larger group arrangements! Milt's the primary soloist, buoyed by an orchestra built around a rhythm section of Hank Jones, Ron Carter 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. Includes 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". The second album of this set is also a surprisingly nice pairing – the vibes of Milt Jackson and some larger horn backings that fall heavy on the trumpet and trombone side of the spectrum! The sound's not nearly as heavy or hokey as you'd expect – thanks to arrangements by Melba Liston – and the horns do a nice job of setting a scene that lets Milt's vibes sneak in and out with effortless ease – coloring things with a great one, and a very rhythmic feel. The album's worth it for one track alone – the really great "Bossa Bags", which grooves with a sound that's everything you'd expect from the title! Other tracks include "Extraordinary Blues", "Save Your Love For Me", "For Someone I Love", "Days Of Wine & Roses", and "Just Waiting". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie JeffersonLetter From Home ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... $11.99
The beginning of a whole new chapter of greatness for singer Eddie Jefferson – a record that took his older style of putting words to jazz solos, and updated it nicely for a new generation in the 60s! Eddie's got a rootsy look on the cover, but the sound here is snappingly hip and sophisticated throughout – a cool soul jazz take on vocalese that's right up there with the best solo work by Jon Hendricks, and sung in a similarly raspy style. The group shifts a bit from track to track – between small combo and larger ensemble arranged by Ernie Wilkins – and players include Clark Terry and Joe Newman on trumpets, Johnny Griffin on tenor, James Moody on alto and flute, Junior Mance and Joe Zawinul on piano, and Barry Galbraith on guitar. Titles include some great original lyrics by Jefferson on the tunes "Soft & Furry", "Keep Walkin", "Things Are Getting Better", and "Back In Town" – and equally great vocals on versions of "Letter From Home", "Billie's Bounce", and "Night In Tunisia".

✨✧ Philly Joe JonesDrums Around The World ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A wonderfully experimental album from drummer Philly Joe Jones – and one that has just the right sort of "ethnic" feel to earn its "Around The World" title! Mostly, the ethnicity comes through in exotic reed work by Sahib Shihab, Herbie Mann, and Cannonball Adderley – who all play wonderfully on the album – alongside straighter sidemen who include Lee Morgan and Blue Mitchell on trumpets, Benny Golson on tenor, and Curtis Fuller on trombone. There's a bit of the Yusef Lateef late 50s sound on here – mixed with Philly's killer crack sock drum approach – a blend that comes off wonderfully throughout, and really makes the album a standout in Philly Joe's catalog from the time. Titles include "Land Of The Blue Veils", "Blue Gwynn", "El Tambores", and "The Tribal Message", which is a nice drum solo! LP, Vinyl record album

Wynton KellyWynton Kelly Piano ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
A surprisingly wonderful set from Wynton Kelly – really fluid and swinging, and with a unique approach on half the material! The core group of the set features Kenny Burrell on guitar, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but then Jones sits it out on the second side of the record, making for a drum-less approach that's looser and freer than we might expect from Kelly. Not necessarily Ahmad Jamal, but really nice and fresh – and with tracks that include "Action", "Dark Eyes", "Strong Man", "Ill Wind", and "Whisper Not". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thelonious MonkBrilliant Corners ... LP
Riverside, 1956. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A brilliant title for this brilliant album from Thelonious Monk – a set that really has him coming back strongly in the second half of the 50s – with a new talent for arrangements that really goes past his previous work! Monk's piano and compositions are every bit as great as before – but what really makes the album amazing is his ear for horn lines – particularly the alto of Ernie Henry and tenor of Sonny Rollins, both of whom add in an additional angular quality to Monk's groove. Clark Terry replaces Henry on a few numbers – and the rhythm is from the wonderful team of Oscar Pettiford and Max Roach – on classic long takes of "Brilliant Corners", "Ba-Lue Bolivar Blues Are", "Pannonica", and "Bemsha Swing".

Riverside, 1962. Very Good ... $12.99
With grooves this great, the house must have been full – and the album's a gem of an early live date by Wes Montgomery, recorded in Berkeley with a quartet that includes Johnny Griffin on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums! The tunes have a nicely cooking feel throughout – even when they're more gentle ones – and the record's a good reminder that outside of the studio, Wes could sometimes play with a bit more force on the strings – raspily hitting notes that explode off the guitar with tremendous precision and a good deel of feeling. Titles include the Montgomery originals "Full House", "SOS", and "Cariba", plus the tunes"Blue N Boogie" and "Come Rain Or Come Shine". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerSwing Low Sweet Spiritual ... LP
Osmosis (Netherlands), 1964. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Pre-ESP Records work from the legendary Albert Ayler – and a really special set that definitely shows his strong ties to a previous legacy of African-American music! Ayler always clamed blues and other roots in his sound, but didn't always show them as clearly – given his free-thinking, forward-moving approach – yet this set has Albert really reworking an older influence, by taking older songs from gospel and secular sources, and using them as a completely compelling springboard for his new ideas on tenor and soprano sax! The album's the sort that David Murray might have cut in the mid 80s – but conceived by Ayler two decades before – and sadly unissued for years after its recording, possibly because it's a very sensitive, soulful set that's different than the frenetic power of later albums on ESP. A real treasure throughout – with work from Call Cobbs Jr on piano, Henry Grimes on bass, and Sonny Murray on drums – on titles that include "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", "Deep River", "Goin Home", "Ol Man River", "Down By The Riverside", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen".

Milestone, Late 50s/1976. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
Nice 2 LP collection of some of Kenny Dorham's beautiful lyrical trumpet work for the Riverside label from the late 50's. The set features material from the albums Jazz Contrasts, Two Horns/Two Rhythms, Blue Spring, and This Is The Moment – plus one track from Abbey Lincoln's album That's Him. The focus is largely on Dorham's sweeter moments, and the set features a host of great original compositions by him, including "Poetic", "Spring Cannon", "La Villa", and "Blue Spring". There's a good set of notes, too, which were written not too long after Dorham's early death in 1972. LP, Vinyl record album

An odd little LP that combines 2 different earlier sets for Riverside.

The last 3 tracks – "Orient", "Free Flight", and "Gone With The Wind" – are pulled from a more obscure Ernie Henry set, a quintet recording with Dorham, Kenny Drew, Wilbur Ware, and Art Taylor. Dorham's the common element here – but all players cook pretty darn hard! LP, Vinyl record album

Blue MitchellBring It Home To Me ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. Very Good ... $49.99
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

Buddah, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real lost classic from the New York club years of the mid 70s – sweetly soulful tracks recorded at Sigma Sound "North" up in Manhattan – but with the same sweeping, soaring sound as the best Philly work of the time. Willy's a saxophonist, blowing soulfully on a set of tracks arranged by David Van DePitte, Horace Ott, and Willy himself – all kind of in a "disco meets jazz" mode that comes across quite nicely, with a Philly-styled instrumental groove. The leadoff cut "Riverside Drive" is worth the price of the album alone – and other tracks include "So Far Away", "Taking Care of Business", "Flower Grows in Springtime", and "True Love Comes Along".

RCA, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
While Blue cut many of our favorite hard bop sides for Blue Note and Riverside, and made a few funky electric LPs for Mainstream, the couple of records he did later for RCA weren't entirely succesful. The playing is pretty strong on this one, from Blue and side men like Jon Faddis, Harold Land and David T Walker, and the production is smoothed out post-CTI 70s jazz, but there were a couple of bad decisions made somewhere along the line, like doing a version of the disco hit "Love Machine". Still numbers like "Delilah" and "Collaborations" have the rich sultry feel of the best of smooth 70s jazz. LP, Vinyl record album

The album features 4 different alternates of tunes from that set – "Nutty", "Epistrophy", "Functional", and "Off Minor" – plus 2 other tunes played by a quartet that features Monk, Coltrane, Wilbur Ware, and Shadow Wilson – on the tunes "Ruby My Dear" and "Trinkle Trinkle".

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyJump For Joy ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
An interesting early side by Cannonball that captures him before he'd really found his voice – and when the folks at Mercury still didn't really know what to do with him. The record's a tightly arranged set of tracks from Duke Ellington's musical "Jump For Joy" – with arrangements by Bill Russo, and small group playing that includes Emmett Berry, Bill Evans, Barry Gabraith, Jimmy Cobb, and a small string section. The sound's actually quite haunting – and Cannon's alto solos remind us more of some of the best "with strings" soloing heard on Verve in the early 50s than they do his later soul jazz classics on Riverside or Capitol. That's ok with us, though – because the session's still got a lot to offer in that respect, and Cannonball handles the solos wonderfully! Titles include "Bli Blip", "Just Squeeze Me", "Nothin", and "The Tune Of The Hickory Stick". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milt JacksonPlenty, Plenty Soul ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Plenty plenty soul here – as Milt Jackson's moving away from the Modern Jazz Quartet, and working with a great group of players that really expand his sound! The session's a bit like some of Milt's soul jazz work for Riverside and other labels – in that it's got rhythms, timings, and solos that all are much more gutbuckety than you'd expect from the other side of his career – a real nod towards the nascent soul jazz sound in the late 50s, served up with lots of undercurrents from R&B and gospel in the mix. Side one features players that include Ronnie Peters on alto sax, Frank Foster on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone – plus Horace Silver on piano – and Silver makes a return appearance on side two, alongside a group that includes Lucky Thompson on tenor and Joe Newman on trumpet. Titles include "Plenty, Plenty Soul", "Boogity Boogity", "Heartstrings", "Sermonette", "The Spirit Feel", "Ignunt Oil", and "Blues At Twilight". LP, Vinyl record album
