Roy HaynesCymbalism ... LP
Prestige, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

Roy HaynesHomecoming ... CD
Evidence, 1992. Used ... $5.99
Strong work from Roy Haynes – working here at the beginning of his big 90s comeback, in a tight young group with the great Craig Handy on tenor! As in most of Haynes' recent work, the tenor is allowed to dominate the session – driving hard with Haynes' increasingly aggressive work on the drum kit, augmented by the piano of Dave Kikosi and the bass of Ed Howard. Tracks are long with exploratory tenor work – and titles include "Green Chimneys", "Equinox", "Bud Powell", and "Star Eyes". CD

Roy HaynesMy Shining Hour ... CD
Storyville (Denmark), 1994. Used ... $8.99
Great drums from the legendary Roy Haynes – a player who was really coming into his own again at the time of this mid 90s set! The recording's a live one, done for Danish Broadcasting with a good sense of clarity – and the group is mostly European, with Tomas Franck on tenor, Thomas Clausen on piano, and Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass. Haynes' touch on the kit is quite heavy at some points, but light and sensitive at others– and the set's got a well-rounded groove that's great proof of Roy's vision as a leader during this time, especially in the way he uses Franck's strong tenor lines. Titles include "All Blues", "My Shining Hour", "Bessie's Blues", "A La Blues", "Bright", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily". CD

Roy HaynesPeople ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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 HaynesSenyah ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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". CD

Free Lance (France), 1986. Used ... $14.99
Crackling tight work from Roy Haynes – recorded here in a live setting with his mid 80s group that featured the great Ralph Moore on tenor. Moore's angular lines dominate the set – a bit freer than on the albums cut under his own name, driven onward by the drumming of Haynes, into a mode that's got a gutsy Sonny Rollins sort of approach. Titles include "Fee Fi Fo Fum", "True Or False", "Bud Powell", "Played Twice", "Big Foot", and "The Everywhere Calypso". CD

Roy HaynesWhen It's Haynes It Roars! ... CD
Dreyfus (France), 1992. Used ... $7.99
A key comeback album for legendary drummer Roy Haynes – a session that brought him back firmly into the limelight of jazz, and established a level of quality that would follow on many great records for years to come! Part of the strength of the set is due to a young Craig Handy – who plays both tenor and soprano sax here with a clean, clear, and unfettered sound – one that's steeped in soulful jazz traditions, but which also has all the fresh energy of youth. Pianist David Kikoski's work on the set is also pretty great too – especially on the more powerful numbers, which really take off on keyboard lines of flight. Titles include "Steps", "Sumemr Nights", "Sippin At Bells", "I Thought About You", "Anniversary", and "Bye Ya". CD

Roy Haynes/Phineas Newborn/Paul ChambersWe Three ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1958. Used ... $9.99
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" and "Sneakin Around". 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

New Jazz/OJC, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal work from the Roy Haynes Trio – one of the hippest groups of its type at the time! Roy's work on the drums is miles ahead of many of his contemporaries – and here, he swings freely with a style that presages a number of modernists who'd emerge in the mid to late 60s – almost melodic at moments, with a style that's open-ended, but still quite swinging – and held down wonderfully with the soulful piano of Richard Wyands and contemplative bass work of Eddie DeHaas. Titles include "Well Now", "Cymbalism", "Con Alma", "As Long As There's Music", and "Sweet & Lovely". CD

Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... 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

Dorothy AshbyHip Harp/On A Minor Groove ... LP
Prestige/Doxy (Russia), Late 50s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
2 of Dorothy Ashby's classic Prestige sessions – back to back on one 2LP set! 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 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

Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
One of Larry Coryell's greatest albums ever! Barefoot Boy is a much more expansive session than some of Coryell's others, fueled in part by the spiritual intensity of the Impulse Records generation. It's got a momentum that's pretty darn exciting throughout – but the compositions are nice and long, which gives the players plenty of space to explore. Personnel includes Steve Marcus on tenor and soprano sax, Mike Mandel on piano, Roy Haynes on drums, and Larry Killian on congas – working with Coryell on long trippy tracks that remind us a bit of 60s work by Chico Hamilton, Charles Lloyd, and Gabor Szabo. Titles include "Call To The Higher Consciousness", "The Great Escape", and "Gypsy Queen". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw Davis Big BandTrane Whistle ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1960. Used ... $13.99
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! CD

Stan GetzStan Getz Quartet (colored vinyl) ... LP
Sony (UK), 1950. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
Wonderful stuff – a French Vogue Records album that compiles some of Stan Getz's best icy sides for Roost Records – material that has the tenorist blowing in a way that really had folks sit up and take notice! There's some of the warmth of Lester Young in Stan's playing here, but also a crisp, modern edge too – a sign of the new voices coming forth on the tenor in the 50s – of which Stan was first and foremost! The record features material from two different sessions – one a quartet that includes Horace Silver on piano and Walt Bolden on drums; the other with Al Haig on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums. Titles include "Sweetie Pie", "Yesterdays", "Hershey Bar", "Gone With The Wind", "Tootsie Roll", "Strike Up The Band", "Imagination" and "For Stompers Only". LP, Vinyl record album

A great lost Verve album that stands as one of Stan Getz's best sessions from the early 60s – a brilliant pairing with Bob Brookmeyer that shows just how much each player had grown in the past decade! There's a strongly modernist feel to the record – more Brookmeyer's influence than Getz's usual bag – with long tracks that move almost airily at times, and which feature some beautiful interplay between tenor and trombone. Rhythm is by a very hip trio of Steve Kuhn on piano, Roy Haynes on drums, and John Neves on bass – and the work's got a great balance between freedom and more focused blowing! Titles include "Minuet Circa 61", "Thump, Thump, Thump", and "Who Could Care". CD

Could anyone ever utter a sexier line than "Don't go to strangers, come to me?" We think not, and it's material like that that makes the album a real killer from Etta Jones – one of her best from the 60s, cut when she was really developing her skills as a vocalist, but still had enough of an edge to be interesting. Backing is by a small group that includes Frank Wess, Roy Haynes, and Richard Wyands – and the album has a relaxed, jazzy quality that easily makes it one of the real standouts in Etta's career!

✨✧ Hank JonesMy Funny Valentine – Greatest Hits Of Standards Vol 3 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Pony Canyon (Japan), Late 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
The third in a series of overlooked albums that pianist Hank Jones recorded for the Japanese market at the end of the 80s – brilliant trio work that shows that Jones was still very much on top of his game at the time! Hank was one of those postwar players who could effortlessly balance rhythm and lyricism – which he does beautifully throughout, but with a mature sense of development that's very much his own voice on the piano – moved nicely far from some of those in his generation who'd gone into a bit more time in the limelight. Jones works here mostly with Mads Vinding on bass and Billy Hart on drums, a really great team – although the final two tracks feature some equally compelling work from George Mraz on bass and Roy Haynes on drums. Titles include "All Of Me", "My Foolish Heart", "Fly Me To The Moon", "Night In Tunisia", "My One & Only Love", "My Funny Valentine", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile". CD

Roland KirkDomino (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mercury (Japan), Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
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".

Thelonious MonkAll Monk – The Riverside Albums (16CD set) ... CD
Concord (Italy), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 16CDs ... $54.99
A full document of the genius of Thelonious Monk on Riverside Records – a late 50s stretch when the composer really came into his own – and delivered even more on the promise of his music than anyone would have expected just a few short years before! By the time of these albums, Monk was already a composer and pianist of some note – with some crucial recordings for Blue Note and Prestige under his belt. Yet at Riverside, he really got the chance to open up in so many different ways – move past the trio material that dominated his earlier years, and try out new modes that really exploded the sound of jazz for the modern generation – helping to bridge paths forward and back, introduce new voices to Monk's sonic spectrum, and lay the groundwork for creativity in the final years of his life. Some tracks are trio, a few are solo, but there's also really important work with horns – including tenor material by John Coltrane, Coleman Hawkins, Johnny Griffin, and Sonny Rollins – as well as the formation of Monk's quartet with Charlie Rouse, which would dominate his Columbia Records material of the 60s. Even the drummers alone are great – a list that includes Art Taylor, Roy Haynes, Max Roach, Kenny Clarke, and Art Blakey – and the set also features some trumpet work by Clark Terry at his hippest, plus Joe Gordon and Thad Jones. All albums come with original artwork, in small little LP-styled covers – and many feature bonus tracks too. Albums include Thelonious Monk Plays Duke Ellington, Unique Thelonious Monk, Brilliant Corners, Thelonious Himself, Monk's Music, Thelonious Monk With John Coltrane, Mulligan Meets Monk, Thelonious In Action, Misterioso, At Town Hall, 5 By Monk By 5, Alone In San Francisco, At The Blackhawk, Monk In France, Thelonious Monk In Italy, and San Francisco Holiday.

Impulse, 1961. Very Good- Gatefold ... $33.99
One of the all-time classics of early 60s mainstream jazz – and a beautiful record that showcases writing and arranging talents of Oliver Nelson! Nelson had been bumping around a variety of sessions before this one – as a leader, sideman, and arranger – but it was with this album that his true talents really unfolded – sparkling with a depth of imagination and expression that marked him as one of the greatest artists in 60s American jazz! The group on the set is an all-star sextet – featuring Paul Chambers, Eric Dolphy, Bill Evans, Roy Haynes, and Freddie Hubbard – a disparate group of players who manage to come together with Nelson and find a unique voice that's rarely been duplicated again! The album features 6 fantastic compositions by Nelson, including "Stolen Moments", "Hoe Down", and "Yearnin". A fantastic record – and one that you can't go wrong with! LP, Vinyl record album

A few other tracks include tenor work, and the album features a core group that includes Richard Wyands on piano, George Duvivier on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – plus guest vibes by Lem Winchester on a few tracks.

Sal NisticoNeo/Nistico ... LP
Beehive, 1978. Sealed ... $5.99
Fantastic small group work from tenorist Sal Nistico – and one of the few records that really finds a way to capture his genius! Sal got his start in the Woody Herman band of the 60s – and although a standout there, he really shines even more brightly here in a small group setting – with a sharp edge on his horn that maybe only comes through this well in a handful of his European recordings, especially for the Ego label. In the spirit of that imprint, the great trumpeter Ted Curson is on board – and Sal's tone is also balanced out nicely by some equally great work from Nick Brignola on baritone. The rest of the combo is equally great – with superb rhythm from Ronnie Mathews on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – and titles include "Be My Love", "Blues For KD", "Bambu", "Fee Fi Fo Fum", and "Anthropology".

The album's one of Jackie's best – based around Gershwin tunes, but done with a hip jazzy feel – great small combo backing from players who include Phil Bodner on flute and sax, Joe Wilder on trumpet, Barry Galbraith on guitar, Eddie Costa on vibes, and Roy Haynes on drums – all musicians who keep things cool throughout. Titles include "Girl Of The Moment", "Let's Take A Walk Around The Block", "Sure Thing", "My Ship", "One Life To Live", and "For The Life of Me".

The recording quality of the tracks is surprisingly good, and on the sessions, Bud plays with a range of bassists that include Charles Mingus, Oscar Pettiford, and Franklin Skeets – plus a range of drummers that includes Roy Haynes and Sonny Payne. This CD package features 21 tracks in all, many in the 2 to 3 minute range, but a few more featuring longer takes on Powell's talents.

✨✧ Sonny RollinsVintage Sessions ... LP
Prestige, Mid 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
Early Rollins work for Prestige – recorded between 1951 and 1954, in a variety of settings! Like a lot of the other Milestone 2LP sets issued in the 70s, this album collects tracks from a number of sessions, restoring recordings to the order they were recorded in rather than how they were originally issued, which in this case was mostly as 10" LPs, under a variety of titles including Mambo Jazz, Sonny Rollins, Sonny Rollins With The Modern Jazz Quartet and others. As such the set features five lineups, all smaller groups, mostly quartets and sidemen include Miles Davis, Roy Haynes, Elmo Hope, Kenny Dorham, Thelonius Monk, Kenny Drew, Percy Heath, and Art Blakey. Since most of this was originally issued on 10"s, the tunes are shorter than you might be used to hearing Rollins' LPs, but there's still plenty of power and imagination in the grooves – very economical solos, crafted with a great deal of imagination. 20 tracks in all, with including "Scoops", "Shadrack", "Mambo Bounce", "The Stopper", "I Know", "Movin' Out", "Solid", "Newk's Fadeaway", "Silk'N'Satin", and "No Moe".
