✨✧ Sal SalvadorColors In Sound Big Band – You Ain't Heard Nothin Yet! ... CD
Dauntless (Spain), 1963. Used ... $14.99
A pretty great little album from guitarist Sal Salvador – a player who didn't record much, but who was right up there with 50s talents like Tal Farlow and Kenny Burrell! Salvador's got a sweet and clean single-line style that works magically with the rich arrangements on the set by Larry Wilcox's big band – a very hip ensemble that features players that include Joe Farrell, Charlie Mariano, Eddie Bert, and Dave Frishberg. A couple of tracks feature vocals by Sheryl Easly – and titles include "Space Walk", "Blues March", "The Old Gnu", "Colors In Sound", "Love You Are Here", "Ambulating", and "Boato". CD

Sal SalvadorMusic To Stop Smoking By ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $9.99
Well, this one's not really the kind of album that will make you throw away your Marlboros – but it is a great set of jazz tracks by Sal Salvador, despite a goofy cover and title! The album was issued by Roulette during the time of its "how to strip" and "how to bellydance" classics – but it's honestly just a straight batch of jazz tunes played by Sal on guitar, with small combo backing that includes Ray Starling on piano, John Beal on bass, and Lennie McBrowne on drums. Sal's guitar is right out front, sounding as strong as on other albums of the period – and the only relation to the title of the set is in the choice of tunes, all which are kind of jokes on quitting smoking: "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "I'll Never Be Free", "You Go To My Head", "You Irritate Me So", and the original tune "Stop Smoking Or Else Blues".

Sal Salvador All Star QuartetJuicy Lucy ... LP
Beehive, 1979. Sealed ... $2.99
A great return to form for guitarist Sal Salvador – a player who didn't always get that much time in the spotlight in the 70s, until a big wave of fresh exposure from the Beehive label! Sal got his start in the Stan Kenton group, where he learned a great sense of color and phrasing – but his approach here is much more down to earth, as he plays in a relaxed combo with Billy Taylor on piano, Art Davis on bass, and Joe Morello on drums! Some tracks are nice and long – with superb solos from Sal and Billy – and titles include "Opus De Funk", "Northern Lights", "Juicy Lucy", and "Tune For Two". LP, Vinyl record album

Don BagleyJazz On The Rocks ... LP
Regent, 1957. Very Good- ... $29.99
An obscure little Savoy jazz session – recorded by a group led by bassist Don Bagley, but featuring some especially great work from alto saxophonist Phil Woods! Woods is captured here at a real turning point in his career – that late 50s time when he was putting away some of his more bop-leaning tendencies, and hitting a sound that was modern, yet warm – exploratory, yet always soulfully in the pocket! The Woods solos alone are the main reason we love this record so much – but the set also features excellent work from Sal Salvador on guitar, Charlie Persip on drums, and Eddie Costa on both piano and vibes. The track list is all original material by Bagley, with a few tunes that really stretch out nicely – and titles include "Batter Up", "Bull Pen", "Come Out Swingin", "Hold In There", and "Miss De Minor".

Tal FarlowThis Is Tal Farlow ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1958. Used ... $6.99
Guitar jazz genius from the amazing Tal Farlow – working here at the height of his powers on a classic session for Verve – a real standout album from the 50s, and one with some slightly more modern overtones than even other Farlow sessions at the time! Part of the strength of the set is the piano work of Eddie Costa – which dances nicely in between the notes, often creating the same sense of counterpoint and interplay as on Costa's excellent albums with Sal Salvador from the same period. Farlow's tone is amazing throughout – rough and pointed, yet always fluid – and titles include "Lean On Me", "The More I See You", "Stella By Starlight", "Topsy", "All The Things You Are", and "Wonder Why".

Capitol, 1952. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Beautiful modernist work from Kenton – one of the first albums to cull his genius together as a whole, filled with the kind of tracks that perfectly sum up his unique approach at the time! If you've ever wondered what makes Kenton so great, this is the album to begin with – as it's filled with fantastic original tunes that provide a shimmering solo showcase for work of players like Lee Konitz, Frank Rosolino, and Bill Holman. Titles include "23 N - 82 W", "Young Blood", "Improvisation", and the haunting "Invention For Guitar And Trumpet", which features Sal Salvador and a young Maynard Ferguson. LP, Vinyl record album

Beehive, Late 70s. Sealed ... $4.99
A treasure trove of rare jazz recordings – all material that was cut during the short run of the Beehive label – that excellent Chicago imprint that was based along the ideals of recordings first put in place by Blue Note and Prestige! Beehive also grabbed a lot of players who worked for those older labels, and gave them some of their best showcase in the studio – as you'll hear here on tracks that include a version of "Moonlight In Vermont", with Johnny Hartman on vocals and Al Gafa on guitar; "Like Someone In Love" with Sal Nistico on tenor and Ronnie Mathews on piano; "Blues In F" by the Walter Davis Jr piano trio; "Stablemates" performed by a sextet with Nick Brignola on alto, Pepper Adams on baritone, and Ted Curson on trumpet; and the titles "On Green Dolphin Street" and "Blues In The Closet", played by Sal Salvador on guitar, Eddie Bert on trombone, Nick Brignola on baritone, Derek Smith on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Mel Lewis on drums.

Afro-Cuban Jazz ProjectTributo A Emiliano Salvador ... CD
Yemaya (Spain), 2000. New Copy ... $9.99 14.95
A wonderfully-done session of Latin jazz – played by a combo formed to pay tribute to the music of Cuban composer Emiliano Salvador! The group on the set is totally great – and features piano by Chuco Valdes, trombone by Juan Pablo Torres, tenor and flute from Juan Manuel, and congas from Tata Guines – all coming together with a number of other players, working in a style that's deeply soulful, and which often has more of a focus on the jazz component of the tracks than usual! The horn work is especially great on the set – arcing and dipping with some heartfelt turns that bring a nice edge to the tracks, and which remind us a bit of the styles we love on some of the older work by Bobby Vince Paunetto. Titles include "A Puerto Padre", "Angelica", "En Una Volanta Actual", "Jazz Plaza", "En Una Manana De Domingo", and "Danza Para Cuatro". CD

Dom SalvadorDom Salvador Trio ... CD
Imagem (Brazil), 1965. Used ... $14.99
Wicked jazzy bossa from 60s Brazil – a crackling early classic from pianist Dom Salvador! The group here is super-tight – a tremendous triangle of piano, bass, and drums – all grooving at equal pace, with a great deal of energy – and given a heck of a lot of soul from Dom's bold lines on the piano! There's a slight lyrical vibe at points, too – making for music that's mighty sweet, and very seductive – and the whole thing's right up there with some of the best bossa trio dates of the time. Trio features bass by Edson Lobo and drums by Victor Manga – and titles include "Arrastao", "Promessa", "Pro Batera", "Santarem", and "Tematrio". CD

Henri SalvadorLive In Paris – January to June 1958 – Mes Inedits ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
Some of the coolest work we've ever heard from the great French singer Henri Salvador – and some of his jazziest, too! Much of the work is in a vocalese style, popularized by American singers like Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson – in which Salvador provides his own lyrics to familiar jazz tunes, both French and American – often with hip small combo backing from players who include Raymond Fol or Art Simmons on piano, Jimmy Gourley on guitar, Barney Wilen on tenor, Benny Vasseur on trombone, and even the Count Basie band on two tracks! Some numbers are straight French language covers of American jazz tunes, others have more improvisation on the vocals – and all are in a soulful style that's different than some of Salvador's later work – much more a postwar blend of American jazz and left bank cool. Titles include "Count Basie", "La Panade", "Blues De La Pausa", "Un Poeme", "Compagnons", "Le Gosse", "Tu Ne Risques Rien", "C'Est-Y Qu T'Es C'Est-Y Qu T'es Pas", and "J'Suis Un Feignant". CD

Lua (Brazil), 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
New work from Brazilian piano legend Dom Salvador – a spare trio set, recorded with all the elegance and power of his best early albums, but with a darkness that we wouldn't have expected. The session was cut in New York a few years back, and it's got a lightly lyrical style that opens up without getting overindulgent – a good match between the striking quality of Salvador's early bossa work, and the richly soulful influences he's soaked up in his years on the American scene. Titles include "Piano Vignette", "Azul Contente", "Bahia Com H", "Ana Luiza", "Toada", "Bass Vignette", and "Transition". CD

Europe 1/Universal (France), 1959. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99
A very cool collection that pays tribute to an explosive postwar decade in the French music scene – a time when the overseas market was really embracing the new styles of rock and soul from America and England, but also making some wonderful music of its own! The series does a great job of mixing up modes – so that you'll hear a French tune one minute, an English one the next – with an ever-evolving sense of styles as the series move on – especially as a lot more French material tends to dominate in the latter half of the 60s! The effect is almost like tuning into Paris radio during the year in the title – and it's no surprise that the whole thing was done as a project by Europe's Radio 1, in collaboration with Universal – at a level that's way better than some of those overstuffed schlockier hits package on the market. Titles on this 1959 volume include "Petite Fleur" by Henri Salvador, "Oh Pauvre Amour" by Danyel Gerard, "A Teenager In Love" by Marty Wilde, "Sweet Nothin's" by Brenda Lee, "Tout Doux Tout Doucement" by Marcel Amont, "What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For" by Emile Ford & The Checkmates, "Salut Les Copains" by Gilbert Becaud, "Le Claquer De Doigts" by Serge Gainsbourg, "Brand New Cadillac" by Vince Taylor & His Playboys, "Nouvelle Vauge" by Richard Anthony, "Trent-Neuf De Fievre" by Gabirle Dalar, and "Nous Avions Vingt Ans" by Huges Aufray.

Dom Um RomaoDom Um Romao/Spirit Of The Times ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of amazing records from percussionist Dom Um Romao – back to back in a single set! The self-titled Dom Um Romao is an unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut! Dom recorded this set in America with a blend of Brazilian and New York musicians – creating an incredible sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – a rich harmony of Brazilian roots and more creative 70s electric instrumentation – filled with complicated shades, tones, and colors! We'd place this record next to the best electric work by David Axelrod, the dopest funk on CTI, and a rare few other jazz funk albums from the 70s – and the whole thing's completely sublime all the way through! Players include Joao Donato on piano, Dom Salvador on Fender Rhodes, Lloyd McNeil on flute, Mauricio Smith on tenor and soprano sax, Sivuca on organ and guitar, and Joe Beck on electric guitar – and titles include the spare spacey groover "Dom's Tune", the lively dancer "Cinnamon Flower", the jazzy "Family Talk", a great version of "Ponteio", and a take on Sivuca's "Adeus Maria Fulo". Spirit Of The Times is an incredible set of Brazilian jazz – one of the few albums that percussionist Dom Um Romao recorded as a leader, and sublime all the way through! The record's got a wonderful blend of funky fusion and Brazilian percussion – and features a group from two continents that includes Sivuca on organ, Dom Salvador on electric piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on alto sax, Lloyd McNeill on flute, and Mauricio Smith on tenor, soprano, and flute. Includes the percussion jammer "Shake (Ginga Gingou)", the modal groover "Wait on the Corner", and the lively scatting tune "The Angels" – but the whole album's great, and other tracks include "The Salvation Army", "Kitchen", and "Lamento Negro".

Chip lists both of these musicians as key influence in the notes, and we can definitely hear that in the music, too – which is a mix of modal groovers and more spacious numbers that blossom with Strata East-like energy – all handled by a great quartet that features Chip on both flute and tenor, plus Gabriel Casanova on piano, David Salvador on bass, and Antonio Pax on both drums and vibes. The music also has some hip European echoes – with styles that recall older work by Harold McNair on the flute numbers, or maybe the best of the Saba/MPS acoustic years. Easily the most righteous album ever issued by the Lovemonk label – with titles that include "Sling Shot", "Red Planet", "The Detour", "La Sombra", "Pushed Too Far", and "La Leyenda Del Tiempo". CD

Gianni Basso & Renato SellaniA La France 2 ... CD
Philology (Italy), 2001. New Copy ... $18.99 21.98
Italian tenorist Gianni Basso is one of those players who had a classic tone right from the start – but he maybe sounds even more classic than ever here, in a warm duet setting with pianist Renato Sellani! The set's got a very old school vibe – even in the way it was recorded direct to two track – and Sellani's got a subtly dark style that's a nice contrast to Basso's tenor – which has a raspy charm that goes back to the Ben Webster school, yet which also has a very open flow in this stripped-down setting! Many of the tunes are classic French numbers – penned by Charles Trenet, Henri Salvador, and others – and titles include "Infiniment", "Douce France", "Watch What Happens", "Dans Mon Ile", "J'Ai Deux Amours", "Bedelia", and "Pres De St Germain".

No keyboards, no percussion, no other instrumentation at all – just acoustic guitar from the great Egberto Gismonti, but used at a tremendously creative level! The songs are loose and free – never outside, but also not bossa or samba either – always those new paths forward that Egberto brought to his music, heard here in a wonderfully unadorned setting that allows us to appreciate his ideas more than ever! And despite the focus on solo instrumentation, the set's incredibly dynamic – hardly a mellow affair at all, and instead filled with fire and freedom throughout – all in ways that are light years past any previous guitar conceptions from Span, Brazil, or other scenes. Titles include "2 Violes", "Danca Dos Escravos", "Lundu", "Alegrinho", and "Salvador". CD

This one's really focused, with a very dynamic feel in the rhythms – thanks to great orchestrations from Dom Salvador. The whole thing's a real party throughout, with tracks that include "O Gato", "Barao Beleza", "ABC Da Vida", "Samba Da Pa", "Mais Do Que Eu", "Pulo Pulo", "Amor Perfeito", and "Cheguendengo". CD

Taschen, 2017. New Copy Book ... $39.99 69.99
A beautiful book that traces the intersection of art and commerce in the field of the record album cover – as museum-level creative talents from Salvador Dali, to Albert Oehlen, to Raymond Pettibon all got their time in the record racks – as you'll see in this huge book of full-color images! The book is done in the most lavish Taschen style – and goes way way past the obvious entries, like record covers that use Vincent Van Gough or Hieronymus Bosch – and instead includes mostly work by cutting-edge 20th Century artists, including loads of important talents from the underground – including a surprising amount of images that we never realized were the result of a famous talent. The book is about 450 pages – and doesn't just include the album covers, but also a fair bit in the way of notes and other credits – all laid out alphabetically, by the creators – as a great antidote to some of the more mainstream record album art books on the market. Super-huge, super-heavy, and beautiful color throughout. Book

Cultures Of Soul, Early 70s. New Copy 7 x 7 Inch ... $49.99 55.98
A stunning set of funky nuggets from 70s Brazil – an expertly chosen collection that really hones in on material that shows the strongest influence on the scene from American work of the time – complete with heavy drums, sharp guitars, funky basslines, and killer keyboards that all bring a funky sound to the Portuguese vocals of the tunes! There's some occasional regional influences – touches of samba soul here and there – but overall, most of these cuts could equally compete with the best American funk of the time – save for the difference of language! Yet there's also some really great production and arrangement twists and turns too – unique elements that really make these tunes stand out, as kind of a hip "something extra" that makes the set well worth checking out. The mighty Greg Caz picked the music – and he's been collecting and spinning this stuff for many years – and titles include "A Hora E Essa" by Celia, "Kizumbau" by Eduardo Araujo, "Aposta" by Toni Tornado, "Paz E Amor" by Os Incriveis, "Uma Vida" by Dom Salvador E Abolicao, "Ei Voce Psiu" by Franco, "Jimmy Rende Se" by Tom Ze, "America Latina" by Osmar Milito & Quarteto Forma, "Swinga Sambaby" by Trio Mocoto, "Bochechuda" by Toni Tornado, and "Quem Va La" by Antonio Carlos E Jocafi. 7-inch, Vinyl record
