Roy HaynesMy Shining Hour ... CD
Storyville (Denmark), 1994. Used ... $4.99
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 Haynes & Quincy JonesJazz Abroad ... LP
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
Excellent work by both of the players listed as leaders – and the beginning of a huge tradition of American jazzmen in Europe that would culminate in the glory days of the Clarke-Boland Big Band scene! The record features sessions cut by Haynes in Stockholm, with Sahib Shihab on baritone and alto, Ake Persson on trombone, and Bjarne Nerem on tenor – plus sessions cut by Jones earlier in the same city, with Persson on trombone, Arne Domnerus on alto, Lars Gullin on baritone, and Art Farmer on trumpet. The tracks have a tightly arranged, but still swinging style – similar to the best hardbop work on Emarcy from the 50s – and the European soloists more than keep up with their US counterparts! Titles include "Hagnes", "Pogo Stick", "Little Leona", and "Jones' Bones". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Haynes With Booker ErvinCracklin' ... LP
Prestige, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A monster! This is a stellar session that has Booker Ervin's tenor fronting a tight group led by drummer Roy Haynes – all with an amazing sense of rhythm that's made the album a standout for years! Ervin is playing in his best modernist vein, and the rhythm section features the excellent pianist Ronnie Matthews – who's playing here in a very funky modal style that makes for some really wonderful grooves. Haynes is the real star, though, as his lively, lyrical drumming breaks from any tight time constraints – and adds an extra-musical edge to the whole session with some quick changes and an undercurrent of lyrical energy. The group's completed by bassist Larry Ridley, also a key force in the sound – and the set includes the track "Dorian", a massive modal groover, plus the killer "Scoochie" – and the cuts "Under Paris Skies", "Honeydew", "Bad News Blues", and "Sketch Of Melba".

✨✧ Roy HaynesRoy Haynes Hip Ensemble ... CD
Mainstream/Boplicity (UK), 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

✨✧ Hampton Hawes, Cecil McBee, Roy HaynesLive At The Jazz Showcase In Chicago Vol 1 ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... 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)... 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

Kenny BurrellMan At Work ... LP
Cadet, 1959. Very Good ... $8.99
One of Kenny's nicely grooving sides for Chess – recorded live at the Village Vanguard in 1959, with a trio that features Richard Davis on bass and Roy Haynes on drums. Haynes' free touch on the kit really opens up the style of Kenny's playing – free, light, and lyrical, yet still quite soulful and filled with rhythm. Titles include "All Night Long", "Trio", "Will You Still Be Mine", "Soft Winds", and "Well You Needn't". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label stereo pressing. Cover has waviness, staining and a split bottom seam due to moisture with a name in pen on the back.)

Kenny BurrellNight At The Vanguard ... CD
Argo/Verve, 1959. Used ... $6.99
A hip live date from Kenny Burrell – recorded with a trio that includes Richard Davis on bass and Roy Haynes on drums – both of whom help Kenny find a groove that's a bit lighter and more fluid than usual! The rhythms here are quite gentle, almost spare at times – and always touched with Haynes' great sense of lyricism. Kenny's guitar lines are right out front, freely flowing with plenty of warm chromatic hues, and styles that echo a bit more modernism than we've heard in other work of his from the late 50s. Titles include "Well You Needn't", "Trio", "All Night Long", and "Soft Winds". CD

✨✧ Gary BurtonDuster ... LP
RCA, 1967. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A really incredible record from the great Gary Burton – a key 60s set that definitely has him finding a musical voice that's all his own – a way of using the vibes that nobody else had ever attempted before! The instrument is a flurry of chromatic beauty – tones and light exploding at each new twist and turn – mixed here with superb work from a quartet that includes Larry Coryell on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums! The names of the players alone might be enough to give you a picture of the sound – but let us go onto say that the overall approach is amazing – angular, jagged, and more rhythmic than melodic – but equally swinging, in sort of a modal way. Tracks include "Ballet", "One Two 1234", "Liturgy", "Response", "General Mojo's Well Laid Plan", and "Sweet Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the straightest Alice Coltrane records for Warner, and a great batch of spiritual jazz tracks with Alice on piano and organ, Reggie Workman on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums. The whole thing was recorded live at UCLA in 1978, but one track, "Prema", features overdubbed strings, in Alice's usual style. Other titles include "Krishnaya", "Leo", "Affinity", and "Transfiguration". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneSelflessness ... LP
Impulse, 1963/1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
A great set of unreleased recordings that was issued after John Coltrane's death, but which stands as an essential chapter in his groundbreaking body of work for Impulse! The album features 2 tracks recorded at the Newport Jazz fest in 1963 – both with Roy Haynes on drums, plus the usual McCoy Tyner/Jimmy Garrison lineup. One of these cuts is a very long reading of "My Favorite Things" – with a sweet loping modal groove, but soloing that is quite a bit more "out" than the famous studio version. The 3rd track on the album – "Selflessness" – was recorded in LA in 1965, and it features Raphael Don Garrett on bass clarinet, adding some nice Dolphy-esque touches. LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneTo The Beat Of A Different Drum – The Mastery Of John Coltrane Vol 2 ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
An excellent set that features rare work from a mid 60s quartet that did not feature the drumming of Elvin Jones – including a number of tracks that had not yet been issued before the time of the LP. All titles are played by a quartet that include Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Roy Haynes – and tracks were recorded in 1963 and 1965 at the Van Gelder Studios, and in 1963 at the Newport Jazz Festival. Titles include "Impressions", "After The Rain", "Deal Lord", "One Down, One Up", "After The Crescent", and "Dear Old Stockholm". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisDig (Conception/Early Miles) ... LP
Prestige, 1951/1953. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
A 70s 2LP set that brings together some key material from Miles first few years at Prestige – tunes that were mostly issued on the albums Early Miles and Conception. The work is about as classic as you can get from Miles' early years – with players that include Sonny Rollins on tenor, Bennie Green on trombone, Jackie McLean on alto, John Lewis or Walter Bishop on piano, and Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, or Kenny Clarke on drums. Some tracks get quite long for the time, and the set includes the classic "Dig", a great reading of "It's Only A Paper Moon", and the tracks "Denial", "Down", "Morpheus", "Bluing", "Conception", "Willie The Wailer", "Tasty Pudding", "For Adults Only", and "Out Of The Blue".

Eric DolphyFar Cry (2nd cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1960. Very Good ... $18.99
Eric Dolphy's first meeting in the studio with trumpeter Booker Little – a brilliant batch of modernism that's easily one of the hippest records Little ever worked on! The Dolphy heard here is Eric at his most inventive – sharp-edged and angular one minute, then spiritually lyrical the next – playing flute, bass clarinet, and alto sax equally well on the record – and somehow managing to get Little to share his inspiration perfectly on every number. Other players include Jaki Byard on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – a rhythm team whose abilities are a big part of the success of the record – and titles include "Far Cry", "Mrs Parker Of KC", "Left Alone", "Ode To Charlie Parker", and "Miss Ann".

Eric DolphyOutward Bound (2LP 180 gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
New Jazz/Analogue Productions, 1960. Sealed 2LP ... $38.99
Eric Dolphy's first album ever as a leader – recorded almost immediately after his arrival on the New York scene! The sound here is already bolder and stronger than the Dolphy experiments on the west coast – sharp-edged and freely exploratory, in a way that pushes the playful lyricism of the Chico Hamilton years aside, and reaches out into the new territory hinted at by the title! The group is a quintet that features Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Jaki Byard on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – and the overall sound is a beautiful mix of modernist hard bop and some of Dolphy's later freer styles. Dolphy plays his usual mix of alto, flute, and bass clarinet – and the tracks include "245", "Miss Toni", "Les", and "GW". LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy FlanaganPositive Intensity ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A unique Japanese-only session from pianist Tommy Flanagan – hardly a one-off, though – as the whole thing's put together with a real sense of care by legendary Columbia jazz producer Teo Macero! Although unissued in the US, the set gives Flanagan one of his greatest showcases of the 70s – a wonderful trio with Ron Carter on bass and Roy Haynes on drums – both players who've got the fluid sensibilities to match Flanagan's bold vision at this point in his career! Tommy's as lyrical as ever, but also has a nice sort of punch, too – one that really takes off as the album moves along – on titles that include "Muffin", "Passion Flower", "Smooth As The Wind", "Verdande", "Ruby My Dear", and "Torment".

✨✧ Stan GetzLong Island Sound ... LP
Prestige/New Jazz, 1949/1950. Good+ ... $24.99
12" LP reissue of material that Getz cut a lot earlier for Prestige – sides that were done in the years 1949 and 1950, featuring groups with Al Haig on piano, Tommy Potter or Gene Ramey on bass, and either Roy Haynes or Stan Levey on drums. The sound is cool and Lester Young-ish, and Stan's tone is great, even at this early stage. Titles include "I've Got You Under My Skin", "Long Island Sound", "Marcia", "Indian Summer", "Crazy Chords", and "What's New". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original purple label New Jazz pressing, with a deep groove and RVG etch. Vinyl is nice and clean, but cover has some water wrinkling on the bottom half – which oddly looks not bad on front, given the water effect and image.)

Stan Getz/Bob BrookmeyerStan Getz/Bob Brookmeyer – Recorded Fall 1961 ... LP
Verve, 1961. Very Good- ... $7.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Andrew HillBlack Fire ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good+ ... $34.99
Insanely wonderful music from Andrew Hill – a lean, stripped-down session that has Hill working at his firey best – in a space that's somewhere between the "new thing" recordings of Jackie McLean, and the brooding brilliance of Andrew's later Smokestack session! The group here has some key figures fleshing out the sound – a young Joe Henderson, blowing tenor with a very edgey quality – the very versatile Richard Davis on bass – and the great Roy Haynes on drums, very much at his most fluid interpretation of rhythm! The whole set's pretty darn great – one of the more mindblowing Blue Notes you'll ever hope to buy – and tracks include "Pumpkin", "Subterfuge", "Cantarnos", and "McNeil Island".

Etta JonesDon't Go To Strangers ... LP
Prestige, 1960. Very Good- ... $4.99
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! Titles include "All The Way", "Where Or When", "Yes Sir, That's My Baby", "If I Had You", "Something To Remember You By", and "Don't Go To Strangers". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve LacyStraight Horn Of Steve Lacy ... CD
Candid/King (Japan), 1960. Used ... $16.99
The only thing "straight" about Steve Lacy's horn is its shape – as the soprano sax here is used in some extremely inventive and modern ways, especially for the date of the session! We don't think we're going out on a limb to say Lacy is one of the foremost melodic improvisors of his time, and easily one of the most talented soprano players too – and his early date as a leader shows both his forward looking involvement with the avant garde (he'd played with Cecil Taylor just before this date and does a couple of his compositions here) and a career-long fascination with Thelonious Monk. Although the group here is piano-less – with Charles Davis on baritone sax, John Ore on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – there's a definite Monk-like edge to many of the numbers, carried off especially by the sharp turns in Lacy's horn! Titles include "Criss Cross", "Air", "Donna Lee", "Louise", "Played Twice", and "Inrospection". CD

Charles LloydDiscovery! ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful bit of soul jazz – much less trippy than some of Charles Lloyd's later work, and handled with a soulful flair that's a mix of Coltrane spiritualism, with an even larger dose of the sort of post-Trane experiments in jazz that would crop up during the early 70s on smaller independent labels – a scene that Lloyd really influenced with albums like this! The record's quite advanced for its time – and features Charles' tenor and flute next to piano by Don Friedman, bass by either Richard Davis or Eddie Khan, and drums by Roy Haynes or JC Moses – on titles that include Lloyd's classic "Forest Flower", plus "Little Peace", "Love Song to A Baby", "Sweet Georgia Bright", and "Bizarre".

✨✧ Thelonious MonkThelonious In Action (2LP 180 gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Riverside/Analogue Productions, 1958. Near Mint- 2LP ... $34.99
A classic cooker from Thelonious Monk – recorded during his legendary run at the Five Spot in the late 50s, and featuring some especially great work on tenor from a young Johnny Griffin! Griffin's filling a role here that would be cemented a bit more firmly in the 60s by Charlie Rouse – but what we like about his playing here is that it's not as clearly codified "Monkish" as some of Rouse's work (even though that's all pretty darn great) – sometimes a bit more open, although still filled with angular tones and changes on this set of all-original compositions by Monk. Rhythm is by Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass and Roy Haynes on drums – and titles include "Evidence", "Epistrophy", "Blue Monk", "Rhythm-a-ning", "Light Blue", and "Coming on the Hudson". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited, numbered pressing!)

Thelonious MonkThelonious Monk Quartet With John Coltrane – Live At The Five Spot Discovery! ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... $4.99
A rare glimpse of the Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane – recorded in Monk's home turf of The Five Spot by Coltrane's wife at the time! The recording was done on a portable tape recorder, but the overall quality is surprisingly strong – not in stereo, but with more than enough depth to capture the interplay between Monk and Coltrane in the more relaxed, open setting of the club. 3 of the tracks on the set are quite long – "Trinkle Trinkle", "In Walked Bud", and "I Mean You" – and they're complemented by 2 shorter tunes – "Epistrophy" and "Crepuscule With Nellie". Group features Roy Haynes on drums and Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass. CD

✨✧ Oliver NelsonBlues & The Abstract Truth ... CD
Impulse, 1961. Used ... $4.99
One of the all-time classics of early 60's 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! CD
