Roy HaynesPeople ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $44.99
One of our favorite records ever by Roy Haynes – a lyrical masterpiece that stands with his best work of the 60s! The set features some wonderful playing by Frank Strozier – who's handling both alto and flute on the set, grooving around like he did on his own great Riverside albums of the period, or on Haynes' excellent Cymbalism set, to which this one is a nice partner. The songs on here are a bit less hip than on that album – as many of them are 60s standards, like "People", "Mr Lucky", "Wives & Lovers", "Invitation", and "What Kind Of Fool Am I" – but they're done with a lot imagination, and a soulful modal groove that really opens them up!

Roy Haynes QuartetLive At The Riverbop ... CD
Blue Marge (France), 1979. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A hip 70s session from Roy Haynes – recorded in Paris, and a fair bit different than some of his few American dates of the time! The group's a very cool one – with alto and flute from Ricardo Strobert, plus guitar, electric bass, and Roy's drums – a groove that's partly electric, but not really in a fusion way – more a semi-spiritual jazz vibe, with almost a Strata East or Black Jazz undercurrent at times! Haynes wrote most of the tunes for the record, and they're some very sharp-edged numbers – never as arch-modern as some of his work in later years, and instead handled with a wicked sense of rhythm – almost a deeper 70s extension of the wonderful groove that Roy brought to his few dates as a leader in the 60s. The whole thing's a key lost chapter in Haynes career – and titles include versions of Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower" and Wayne Shorter's "Foot Prints" – plus the originals "I'm So High", "Bull Fight", "Riverbop Blues", and "True or False".

Roy Haynes/Jimmy JonesRoy Haynes' Modern Group (with Jimmy Jones Trio) ... CD
Swing/Sony (France), 1954. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
A very early date as a leader from drummer Roy Haynes – already showing some very strong ability on the overseas scene – where he works here with some of the cream of the crop of the Paris scene of the 50s! The album's a surprising effort that has Haynes at the helm of some great horn players – the mighty Barney Wilen on tenor, plus Jay Cameron on baritone – as well as Henri Renaud on piano, Jimmy Gourley on guitar, and Joe Benjamin on bass – all coming together under Haynes' leadership in a freshly inventive way! Gourley brings some modern colors to the music, while Roy keeps things swinging – and even at this early age, Wilen is a treat throughout. Titles include "Red Rose", "Laffin & Crying", "Minor Encamp", "Dillon", and "Subscription". The CD also features one of the few albums as a leader from pianist Jimmy Jones – a musician who was best known for his backing work for a few famous singers – but a player who really shines on this rare French session from the 50s! Jimmy's got a really great command of the keys – still that rhythmic vamp that made him nice and soulful when working with a vocalist – but also a really open, lyrical groove on the melody – one that has some surprisingly deep touches at times, this level of sophistication that we might never have expected otherwise. The trio features Joe Benjamin on bass and the great Roy Haynes on drums – and titles include "Lush Life", "Squeeze Me", "Good Heartache", "Easy To Love", and "Little Girl Blue". CD

Roy Haynes/Phineas Newborn/Paul ChambersWe Three (Japanese pressing) ... CD
New Jazz/Victor (Japan), 1958. Used ... $6.99
A key outing from drummer Roy Haynes – a classic trio session that has a lot more energy than the usual set from the time – thanks to equal participation from Paul Chambers on bass and Phineas Newborn on piano! The unified approach hinted at in the title certainly comes through in the grooves – as Chambers bass works way more than rhythm here – and Haynes' drumming is lightly melodic on the best numbers, allowing Newborn to almost handle more of the pace of the tunes himself. Tracks are longish, and titles include "Reflection", "Sugar Ray", "Solitaire", "Our Delight", and "Sneakin Around". CD

✨✧ Hampton Hawes, Cecil McBee, Roy HaynesLive At The Jazz Showcase In Chicago Vol 1 ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hell of a great live set from pianist Hampton Hawes – thanks especially to the other members of the trio! Hawes is at his free, open, 70s best on the piano – but bassist Cecil McBee really takes the record to the next level – spinning out these amazing lines that are as rhythmic as they are melodic – often crafted with that rounded tone that was his important calling card during this stretch! Drummer Roy Haynes is a bundle of energy – bursting out in surprising ways, occasionally in counterpoint to the piano and bass – and the whole thing cooks nicely on a set of extended tracks. Titles include "Stella By Starlight", "Blue Bird", "St Thomas", and "Spanish Mood". CD

✨✧ Roy HaynesCymbalism ... LP
Prestige, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cracker of an album – as fresh today as it was when it was first released in 1963! Roy Haynes is probably best known to the world for his bop work, but in the early 60s, he was a budding modernist with a real sense for lyrical improvisation. As part of a generation that was working on newly musical ways of using the drums – players that included Andrew Cyrille and Chico Hamilton – Haynes had a way of making the kit talk that's quite different than his roots in 50s jazz. Here, he's playing with a very hip quartet that includes Frank Strozier on alto and flute, Ronnie Matthews on piano, and Larry Ridley on bass – crafting tunes that swing at a lovely level, yet also have far-reaching and exploratory passages. The whole album's a delight – and titles include "Modette", "Go N Git It", "La Palomeinding", and "Hag". LP, Vinyl record album

Eighty Eights/Columbia, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous album from Roy Haynes – simple, understated, and extremely well done! There's no tribute to Charlie Parker here – just sweetly swinging work by a group that features Kenny Barron, Dave Holland, Christian McBride, Joshua Redman, and John Scofield – all of whom come together strongly behind Roy's leadership to craft elegant versions of standard jazz tunes, working in lyrical territory that reminds us a lot of Roy's classic 60s recordings. Titles include "Love Letters", "Que Pasa", "Afro Blue", "The Best Thing For You", "Shades Of Senegal 2", and "How Deep Is The Ocean". CD

Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Drummer Roy Haynes works here with an ensemble that's definitely as hip as the title promises – a really righteous group that makes the album one of Roy's most spiritual records ever! Haynes was always a drummer who was really a cut above, even back at the start – but here, he really steps out strongly with a new musical vision for the 70s – working with a lineup that includes George Adams on tenor and flute and Marvin Hannibal Peterson on trumpet – but players who give the music a really bold feel, right from the start! The rest of the lineup is wonderful, too – as Carl Schroeder plays Fender Rhodes with this flowing vibe that's plenty soulful – alongside bass from Terud Nakamura and Mervin Bronson, conga from Lawrence Kilian, bongo from Elwood Johnson, and more drums from Haynes himself. Titles include a sublime reading of Stanley Cowell's "Equipoise" – plus "Tangiers", "You Name It", and "Satan's Mysterious Feeling". CD

Impulse, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Drummer Roy Haynes always brings something great to the table for any album he does as a leader – and this record is no exception! Here, the "added something" is the presence of Roland Kirk on reeds – offered a key early chance to express his most modern ideas in the freedom of Haynes' group – working alongside Tommy Flanagan on piano and Henry Grimes on bass, in what was easily one of the hippest groups to record for Impulse in the early 60s! The record's filled with wonderful material – and a mix of originals and standards done with a very twisted edge – all with great interplay between Kirk's quirky sax work and Roy Haynes' amazing drumming – often changing up timings and rhythms with ease, and really matching Kirk's quirky energy for the set. Titles include "Moon Ray", "Raoul", "Snap Crackle", and "Long Wharf". CD

Mainstream, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A real standout in the career of drummer Roy Haynes – and a sweet set of spiritual jazz from the 70s, unlike most other albums that Haynes ever cut! The lineup here is totally great – with George Adams on tenor, Marvin Peterson on trumpet, and Roland Prince on guitar – and the set has a slightly electric groove that blends beautifully with the soaring acoustic solo work by the main players – in a style that's strongly reminiscent of the best work on Strata East, Black Jazz, or Muse at the time! This album's definitely one of the few times that Mainstream really got things "right" in the studio – and Haynes is superb at the helm of the group, making things come off with a great sense of exploratory creativity! Tracks are long – and titles include "Full Moon", "Senyah", "Brujeira Con Salsa", and "Little Titan". LP, Vinyl record album

Dorothy AshbyHip Harp/On A Minor Groove ... LP
Prestige/Doxy (Russia), Late 50s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2017 (delayed)
2 of Dorothy Ashby's classic Prestige sessions – back to back on one CD! First up is material from Hip Harp – great stuff by the grooviest artist ever to play a harp! Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments. Ashby was part of the same scene as Yusef Lateef, and like Lateef, she managed to use odd instrumentation in new contexts, to get a very unique jazz sound. This set's got harp and flute in the lead, and features the tracks "Pawky", "Charmaine", "Jollity", and "Back Talk". On In A Minor Groove, Ashby she swings with an other-wordly quality that's simply amazing, quite exotic, and very much in the camp of players like Yusef Lateef or Les Jazz Modes, who were trying similar experiments in jazz. This session features Dorothy in a quartet with the flute of Frank Wess, the bass of Herman Wright, and the drums of Roy Haynes, whose warm lyrical touches provide the perfect melodicism for the group. Titles include "Rascallity", "Bohemia After Dark", "Taboo", "Autumn In Rome", and "It's A Minor Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Nick Brignola featuring Pepper AdamsBaritone Madness ... LP
Beehive, 1977. Sealed ... $5.99
Baritone madness, and a lot more too – a set that's full of surprises, and which may well be one of the most striking records on the Beehive label from Chicago! The date not only features twin terrors on baritone sax – Nick Brignola and Pepper Adams, both blowing at the height of their powers – but it also includes a very unusual group of players alongside them – modern giant Ted Curson on trumpet and flugelhorn, avant bassist Dave Holland, incredible drummer Roy Haynes, and British pianist Derek Smith. The unlikely meeting of players comes off wonderfully here – and most tracks are nice and long, with lots of blowing session room for solos! Tracks include "Billie's Bounce", "Donna Lee", "Marmeduke", "Alone Together", and "Body & Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

Gary BurtonTennessee Firebird ... LP
RCA, 1966. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Quite an unusual session from Gary Burton – recorded in Nashville, with a mix of jazz and country session players – coming together in an open-ended sound that's got lots of complicated touches. Gary's jazz side is represented by Roy Haynes on drums, Steve Swallow on bass, and Steve Marcus on sax – and the Nashville side of things is handled by players that include Buddy Emmons, Ray Edenton, Charlie McCoy, and Chet Atkins, who duets with Burton on two spare tracks. The sound is hard to describe, but quite different from, and equally striking as, Burton's 60s albums for RCA. Titles include "Epilogue", "Alone & Forsaken", "Walter L", "I Want You", "Just Like A Woman", "Gone", "Tennessee Firebird", "Beauty Contest", and "Born To Lose". LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Burton QuartetCountry Roads & Other Places ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good ... $9.99
Hardly the kind of country roads you'd find traveled by other musicians – as Gary Burton's sound here is incredibly fresh – still as groundbreaking now as it was back in the 60s! The title might be a reference to Burton's Nashville roots, and the music does have a slightly pastoral vibe – but the overall execution is extremely modern, and filled with the kind of bold tones and sharp turns that always made Burton so wonderful at the start! The group includes Jerry Hahn on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – all very freewheeling, open players – with an equal balance between rhythm and melody. Burton, Swallow, and Hahn composed a good many of the tracks – and titles include "A Singing Song", "Wichita Breakdown", "Country Roads", "The Green Mountains", "True Or False", and "Gone But Forgotten".

Ted CursonPlays Fire Down Below ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1962. Used ... $5.99
A fierce early album from Ted Curson – one with a slight bit of a Latin touch, and all the fire that the title implies! Ted's working here with a quintet that include Gildo Mahones on piano, George Tucker on bass, Roy Haynes on drums, and Montego Joe on a few tracks on conga. The groove is more straight ahead and soulful than on some of Ted's more modernist work – but no less edgey, as you'd expect from his always-strong work on trumpet. Titles include "Fire Down Below", "The Very Young", "Only Forever", and "Baby Has Gone Bye Bye". CD

Pretty straight work from Ted Curson – recorded in the years 1978, 1979, and 1980 – featuring a number of groups, one of which features added trumpet work by Dizzy Reece! Curson's staying a bit more inside than on some of his other albums from the time – possibly because of the presence of Reece – but he still manages to hold his own, albeit with a bit less fire than before. The combos on the album make up for some interesting combinations that create strong modal grooves on the best tunes – and players include Ryo Kawasaki, Montego Joe, Jim McNeely, Sam Jones, and Roy Haynes. Titles include "Marjo", "Snake Johnson", "Pent Up House", "Walkin", "Lin's Garden", "Bass Conclave", and "All The Things You Are". CD

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw Davis Big BandTrane Whistle ... LP
Prestige, 1960. Very Good- ... $19.99
Don't pass this one up! Although lots of other albums by Eddie Lockjaw Davis are laidback quartet and quintet sessions, done in a soul jazz organ/tenor mode – this session features Eddie working with stunning bigger band backings, in a searingly soulful sound that's simply incredible! The leadoff track, "Trane Whistle", has Lockjaw really working new waves of sound into his tenor sax – screaming the horn in a way that you thought you'd never hear, and playing with tones that are a lot darker than usual! The set moves on from there in a nice batch of material that includes "Whole Nelson" and "Stolen Moments", two fantastic originals by Oliver Nelson, who also arranged the album – and takes a great deal of responsibility for the strength of the set. The record shows a whole new side of Davis' talents – one that was barely if ever recorded like this again – and which is made even better by the presence of freshly modern players that include Eric Dolphy, Richard Williams, Melba Liston, and Roy Haynes. Great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Side one features a quartet with Al Haig on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – all giving Stan plenty of room to dominate with tenor on tunes that include "What's New", "There's A Small Hotel", "Too Marvelous For Words", and "I've Got You Under My Skin". Side two features a different larger group – a modern ensemble with plenty of bop touches, and players that include Terry Gibbs on vibes, Shorty Rogers on trumpet, Earl Swope on trombone, and George Wallington on piano.

Stan Getz QuartetStan Getz Quartet In Paris ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare set from one of Stan Getz's hippest groups! The album was recorded in Paris in 1966, during a time in which Stan was working with a groundbreaking quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes, Steve Swallow on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – a combo that unfortunately got a bit overshadowed by Stan's bossa work, which was recorded in earlier years, but still getting issued and played heavily during the time of the Burton quartet's reign. The upshot of that situation was that the combo weren't nearly as exposed, or recorded, as much as they should have been – making the record an essential look at this under-documented side of Stan's career. Getz's tone is fantastic – and he glides freely with the young modernists in a way that you barely ever hear on any of his sides from the 60s, save for, perhaps, the sublime Sweet Rain LP. Titles include the long "The Knight Rides Again" – plus the tracks "Singing Song", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Edelweiss", and "Manha De Carnaval". CD

Atlantic/Collectables, 1983. Used ... $9.99
A definite sweet return from Freddie Hubbard – a record with a cover and title that might appear to be smooth jazz, but one with a sound that's solidly acoustic and soulful all the way through! The album's a great example of Hubbard's amazing work in the early 80s – a time when he was shaking off the larger and electric trappings of the 70s, to return to smaller combo work – but often with a really fluid and warm feel that showed the best lessons learned from the previous decade! Freddie's tone and timing here are impeccable – and the long tracks are especially great, with continually-inventive solo work that holds us rapt with attention. Other players include Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, Joanne Brackeen on piano, Eddie Gomez on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – and titles include "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", "Heidi B", "Sweet Return", "Whistling Away The Dark", and "Calypso Fred".

Roland KirkDomino ... LP
Mercury, 1962. Very Good ... $19.99
A key early album from reedman Roland Kirk – at set that really has him strongly finding his voice in jazz, and transforming most of modern music in the process! The set's a perfect illustration of the way that Roland could swing with soul, yet still reach out with bold new ideas too – mixing up work on tenor sax, manzello, stritch, flute, and even nose flute – instruments often played at the same time, with this amazing multi-reed style that's really mindblowing – and which follows the soaring sheets of sound of the Coltrane generation, yet completely in its own way too! There's a sharp modern edge to most of the rhythms – thanks in part to the presence of Andrew Hill on piano and celeste on a few cuts – alongside from Vernon Martin on bass and Roy Haynes and Henry Duncan on drums – and a bit of additional piano from Wynton Kelly. The whole thing's amazing – one of those records that never fails to delight us – and titles include "3 In 1 Without The Oil", "ED", "Domino", "Meeting On Termini's Corner", and "A Stritch In Time".
