Gil MellePrimitive Modern/Quadrama ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... $14.99
An incredible record from an incredible group – one of the most unique-sounding combos of the 50s – headed by baritone saxophonist Gil Melle, and featuring a very compelling combination of instruments! Melle's horn is hardly the heavy honker you might expect – and instead he's sometimes as fluid and soulful as a tenor, other times even more spacious and modern than some of his most impressive 50s contemporaries on the instrument – matched here in brilliance by the amazing guitar work of Joe Cinderella – a player who seems to use the instrument more as a way to generate fast ringing tones, than any sort of usual groove! The mix of colors and tones is completely sublime – and sent homeward by the brilliant drumming of a young Ed Thigpen, and the bass of Billy Phillips. All tunes are originals, and mighty compelling – and titles include "Ironworks", "Dominica", "Mark One", and "Dedicatory Piece To The Geophysical Year Of 1957". Coupled with this album is another great quartet album, Quadrama – one that has more of a straight jazz feel, but which is also great. Titles on that one include "Full House", "Quadrama", "Rush Hour In Hong Kong", and "Walter Ego". Great stuff all round! CD

✨✧ Martin DennyExotica 1 & 2 ... CD
Liberty/Scamp, 1957/1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic stuff from the man who brought the Exotica sound to the mainstream! We hardly need to tell you about these albums – as they're virtually the blueprint for countless exotica albums to come, a mixture of 50s easy listening, strange tropical rhythms, and odd little sound effects! Denny's playing with his original combo of Arthur Lyman, Augie Colon, and John Cramer – in a mixture of piano, percussion, vibes, and lots of bird calls! Tracks include "Stone God", "Island Of Dreams", "Escales", "When First I Love", "Bacoa", "Ebb Tide", "Rush Hour In Hong Kong", "Singing Bamboos", "Jungle Flower", "Busy Port", "Lotus Land", and his hit recording of "Quiet Village".
