Art BlakeyKyoto ... LP
Riverside, 1964. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Quite possibly the best of the non-Blue Note Blakey sides from the early 60s – and an excellent outing from the sextet version of the Jazz Messengers that included Freddie Hubbard, Curtis Fuller, Wayne Shorter, Cedar Walton, and Reggie Workman! The format here is a big tighter than some of Blakey's quintet sessions – with a bit more focus on the arrangements than before – but a change that's more than welcome to our ears, given the strength of the material and Walton's majestic command of the rhythms! Wellington Blakey joins the group on vocals on the track "Wellington's Blues" – but the best aspect of the album is its long Eastern-tinged jam tracks, very much in the mode of some of Horace Silver's work in a similar vein. Titles include Sadao Watanabe's "Nihon Bash", plus "Kyoto", "The High Priest", and "Never Never Land". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Dorham with Cannonball AdderleyBlue Spring ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Good+ ... $14.99
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. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
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 GriffinChange Of Pace ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Good+ ... $14.99
For a guy who played a strange instrument, Julius Watkins sure got around! Case in point is this strangely wonderful album from 1961, in which Johnny Griffin used the talents of Watkins to create a strange album of moody textures and rich waves of sound. Watkins french horn is on about half the tracks on the album – and the others feature Griffin as the main soloist, backed by two string basses (Bill Lee and Larry Gales), plus drums by Ben Riley. The result is a very different, but very compelling album by Griff – and in combination with Watkins (who was well-accquainted with deep tenor sounds from his work with Charlie Rouse in Les Jazz Modes), he opens up a whole new side of his playing. Titles include "Nocturne", "Soft & Furry", "Same To You", "Connie's Bounce", and "Why Not?" LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Bill Grauer Productions pressing, with microphone logo and deep groove. Cover has some wear, with aged tape along all seams. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

Johnny GriffinGrab This! ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good- ... $11.99
A really obscure little session from tenorist Johnny Griffin – and one of his few dates from the time cut with an organist – in this case the up-and-coming LA player Paul Bryant! Bryant's probably best known for his cookers with Curtis Amy, and he hits a similar mode here – by bringing a strong R&B inflection to the album, and offering Griffin a setting that's a bit less hardbop than some of his other Riverside albums of the time! The rest of the group features Joe Pass on guitar, Jimmy Bond on bass, and Doug Sides on drums – and titles include "Cherry Float", "These Foolish Things", "63rd Street Theme", "Grab This", and "Offering Time".

The record's a good 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, stretching out with a deep edge and a wonderful tone. Other players include Clark Terry on trumpet, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Ron Carter on bass – and titles include "God Bless The Child", "Gloomy Sunday", "Travelin' Light", "Left Alone", and "Detour Ahead".

Dick JohnsonMost Likely ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Near Mint- ... $9.99
An incredible and tragically-overlooked album by altoist Dick Johnson – a Boston-based player who was part of a white legacy of Beantown altoists that included Charlie Mariano and Lee Konitz. Johnson plays here with a razor-sharp style that reminds us of the best of Konitz's early work, touched by the soulfulness that Mariano brought to some of his best 50 recordings – offset by a rawly emotional tone that was all his own! The set was recorded with a crack rhythm team that included Wilbur Ware and Philly Joe Jones – and it's one of the great lost releases on the Riverside label. Titles include "Lee Antics", "Folderol", "The Loop", "Me N Dave", and "Aw C'mon Hoss". Great stuff – and the reason why we still collect vinyl! LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese-only reissue – done by Fantasy here, but never issued in the US.)

✨✧ Sam JonesChant ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Good ... $14.99
Early genius from Sam Jones – the kind of record that showed the world that he was way more than just a bass player – even though he was pretty darn great at that! At the time of the set, Sam was already raising plenty of ears with his work in the Cannonball Adderley group, an outfit that helped Jones find a whole new role for the bass in jazz. But here, he's working with a much larger group – a tentet that's filled with all star players that include Melba Liston, Cannonball Adderley, Blue Mitchell, Jimmy Heath, Victor Feldman, Tate Houston, and Les Spann – soaring through lively arrangements by Heath and Feldman that sit in a space between small combo soul jazz and larger group swing – a bit in the mode of some of Quincy Jones' best early 60s work on Mercury! Despite the large group, Sam's bass gets plenty of room to roam in the album – and titles include "The Chant", "Blues On Down", "In Walked Ray", "Blue Bird", "Four", and "Off Color".

Wynton KellyKelly Blue ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A great little session from Wynton Kelly – one that has him breaking out of the lyrical roots of his trio work, and hitting some harder notes as a leader of a larger hardbop group! The album features Kelly working in both trio and sextet format – the latter with players who include Nat Adderley, Bobby Jaspar, and Benny Golson; and the former with Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb (who also play with the sextet). The sextet tracks are the ones that we really love here – as they tend to feature 2 long original numbers by Kelly – much more open than usual, and in a mode that was rarely captured as well on Wynton's albums as a leader. The trio sides are still nice too, though – although a bit more like some of his other sides – and the album features 6 tracks in all, titles that include "Kelly Blue", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "Green Dollphin Street", "Keep It Moving", and "Old Clothes". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue MitchellBrasses & Strings (aka Smooth As The Wind) (record plays from the INSIDE OUT) ... LP
Fortissimo/Riverside, 1961. Very Good Gatefold ... $59.99
A rare one from Blue Mitchell – issued on the Riverside offshoot label Fortissimo – and a record that plays from the INSIDE OUT – starting at the inner label and playing through to the outer groove – backwards from conventional albums! The re-titled set features music from Blue's Riverside date Smooth As The Wind – a slightly different record than usual for Blue – not as down-n-dirty and funky, but more "smooth as the wind" – with Blue blowing solos over larger arrangements by Tadd Dameron and Benny Golson, a small string group mixed with jazz and horn backings. Given the hipness of the arrangers, the session's still got a nice edge – and the choice of material takes it past the realm of stringy standards, into a more complex mode that shows a very different side of Blue. Titles include "Strollin", "A Blue Time", "For Heaven's Sake", "Peace", and "Smooth As The Wind". As noted above, this record plays opposite from most of the records you own – from the INSIDE OUT. To start play you must drop the needle on what would normally be the runout groove! LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious MonkThelonius Himself ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Good+ ... $24.99
A classic outing of solo piano by Thelonious Monk – a format that wasn't used often, but which always made for some really compelling work! Monk in this mode is often different than the bolder leader of a trio or larger group – and there's a more introspective quality to the record that we really like – a sound that's sometimes tentative, then sometimes pushing forward with strength – almost more human than on some of his other efforts of the late 50s. John Coltrane makes a surprising appearance on the last track – "Monk's Mood" – and other titles include "April In Paris", "Ghost Of A Chance", "Functional", "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You", "I Should Care", "'Round Midnight", and "All Alone".

Little Brother MontgomeryChicago – The Living Legends ... LP

Blues, but with an undercurrent of New Orleans jazz – no surprise, given the Louisiana roots of Eurreal "Little Brother" Montgomery! The album's a classic set recorded in Chicago in the early 60s – featuring both Montgomery in a spare solo setting, and with help from a small backup group that includes Ted Butterman on cornet, Bob Gordon on clarinet, and Mike McKendrick on banjo. Little Brother plays piano on all numbers, and sings on most – and titles include "44 Vicksburg", "Prescriptions Of The Blues", "Sweet Daddy", "Home Again Blues", "Up The Country Blues", "Saturday Night Function", "Michigan Water Blues", and "Oh Daddy".

Wes MontgomeryIncredible Jazz Guitar Of Wes Montgomery ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Good ... $49.99
They're not kidding with the title of this one – because although the record was only Wes Montgomery's second album as a leader, he was already making plenty of waves with the sound of his guitar! The session lines Wes up with the very tight rhythm team of Tommy Flanagan on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Albert Heath on drums – all of whom lay back and mostly let Wes take center stage – sparkling on a number of original tunes that include "West Coast Blues", "Mister Walker", and "D Natural Blues". Other tracks include a great fast take on Sonny Rollins' "Airegin", plus "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "Polka Dots & Moonbeams". LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey & Thelonius MonkArt Blakey's Jazz Messengers With Thelonious Monk ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Angular Monk meets hard-driving Art Blakey – in a session that's quite unique, and which has gone onto become one of the best-remembered Atlantic jazz sessions of the late 50s! The album features Blakey in that key non-Blue Note year of 1957 – a time when he was working with a variety of players, at a variety of labels, and taking some real chances with his music before settling into his more established hit Jazz Messengers sound. The group here is Art's own – with Johnny Griffin on tenor, Bill Hardman on trumpet, and Spanky DeBrest on bass – augmented by the piano of Thelonious Monk – a match that might seem unlikely at first, but not so much so after you consider the great work that Monk and Griffin did together at Riverside during the late 50s. There's a nice match between Johnny's sharp-edged tenor and Monk's imaginative playing – and if anything, the record has Blakey, Hardman, and DeBrest moving dynamically to keep up with the flurry of modern ideas coming from Griffin and Monk! Tracks are almost all originals by Thelonious too – a fact that definitely helps keep up the "Monk-ish" sound of the record – titles that include "Evidence", "Blue Monk", "I Mean You", and "Rhythm A Ning" – alongside Griffin's "Purple Shades".

Mel Rhyne SextetOrgan-izing ... LP
Jazzland, 1960. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An excellent bit of soul jazz – completely rare in the original pressing, and one of the few early albums ever cut by organist Melvin Rhyne! Rhyne first came to prominence as the organist with Wes Montgomery – and he hailed from Montgomery's hometown of Indianapolis, and had the distinction of appearing on an early trio album with Wes. This rare side as a leader has Rhyne heading up an all-star cast that includes Blue Mitchell, Johnny Griffin, Andy Simpkins, and Albert Tootie Heath – plus fellow Indiana resident Gene Harris, who plays piano on the session, which makes for a very unusual combination next to the organ! The tracks are all quite long – and the session's a lot more down-and-dirty than the usual work that was recorded on the Jazzland and Riverside labels, stretching out at an open-ended soul jazz pace that was much more the territory of Prestige Records. Tracks include "Blue Farouq", "Shoo Shoo Baby", and "Barefoot Sunday Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Killer trio work from pianist Bobby Timmons – a set that opens up with a lot more fire and freedom than some of his earlier dates for Riverside! When Timmons made the shift to Prestige, something really clicked in his playing – a new sense of energy, rhythm, and space that's all heard perfectly here! The album's a great little cooker that goes beyond some of the cliches that Bobby was hitting in his earlier days – cliches that weren't really a problem, given his strength as a player and musical vision – but which were a bit more apparent as everyone else was grabbing his bag. Here, he opens up into whole new territory – working with bassist Sam Jones and drummer Ray Lucas – really riding some great waves of sound on tracks that include "Little Barefoot Soul", "Cut Me Loose Charlie", "Walkin Wadin Sittin Ridin", "Ain't Thinkin Bout It", and "Little One".

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.

Cannonball AdderleyJump For Joy ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $9.99
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
(Blue label Mercury pressing with deep groove. Cover has a bit of marker on back.)
