✨✧ Junior ManceJunior Mance Trio At The Village Vanguard ... CD
Jazzland/OJC, 1961. Used ... $6.99
A firey little trio session from Junior Mance – one that features tracks taken at a pace that's even more uptempo than usual, and which really pushes his skills on the keys! The speed of the set is by no means a detriment to Mance's soulful playing – and if anything, the record stands as one of his most compelling from the period – not just a batch of soul jazz styles that were soon becoming cliches, but a vibrant example of the full range of Mance's talents, caught in a very spontaneous setting. Trio members include Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Smokey Blues", "Bingo Domingo", "Looptown", "Letter From Home", and "Girl Of My Dreams". CD

Phineas NewbornWorld Of Piano ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1961. Used ... $6.99
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The sound here is really tremendous – boldly leaping forth from the keys with a strength that's really surprising – but still sensitive enough to slide in a few more contemplative notes when the moment calls – sometimes while Newborn is still racing down the keys at breakneck speed! Rhythm on both sides is great – with Paul Chambers & Philly Joe Jones on side one, and Sam Jones and Louis Hayes on side two – and titles include "Cheryl", "Manteca", "Oleo", "Daahoud", "Cabu", and "For Carl".

✨✧ Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins Plus 4 ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A crackling bit of hardbop from Sonny Rollins – and a session that has Sonny playing with the Max Roach/Clifford Brown group that included Bud Powell's brother Richie on piano! Sonny had already made a strong name for himself on albums issued under the Roach/Brown tag at the time, and here the group returns the favor by allowing Sonny to lead, and by giving him a good deal of time in the spotlight! Rollins' solo ability is risen to a razor-sharp level for the set – really getting fire, and managing to invent at a speed and sharpness that's simply amazing. Titles include Sonny's classic reading of "Pent-up House", plus "Valse Hot", "Kiss & Run", and "Count Your Blessings". CD

✨✧ Johnny LytleDone It Again (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Get On Down, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very very very groovy stuff by this masterful jazz vibist, recorded with a sort of late 60s swingin' feel – but still very much in the pocket and warm as a summer breeze! Lytle has a pretty remarkable way of playing the vibes with speed and energy, yet the overall feel still has kind of a relaxed West Coast vibe – a beautiful blend that rivals, if not beats, the sound of Cal Tjader on late 60s Verve! Jimmy Foster grooves along on organ, and the interplay with Lytle is key to the classic sound – but the whole group is great here – Major Holley on bass, Peppy Hinant on drums and Don Alias on conga, which brings in plenty of Latin kick. 6 of the 10 numbers are Lytle originals, including "Done It Again", "Sleepy Dozier", "Zote", "Jungle Child" and "Happy Preacher" – plus "If Ever I Should Leave You", "People" and "The Nearness Of You". CD
(Comes in a great, heavy cardboard gatefold-style package!)

✨✧ Moebius Plank NeumeierZero Set ... CD
Sky (Germany), 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Searing synth and pummeling drums from Moebius, Plank & Neumeier – with Cluster great Dieter Moebius teamed up with procucer Conny Plank and Mani Neumeier of Guru Guru for the early 80s Zero Set! Neumeier's drums provide a heck of a spark for the the synths, and all in all it's uncommonly abrasive material from the German rock scene of the time, with a compelling groove, too! Titles include Speed Display", "Load", "Pitch Control", All Repro", "Search Zero" and "Recall". CD

✨✧ Gil EvansGil Evans & Ten ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic early work from Gil Evans – emerging here in this early session as an already far-thinking modernist. The tracks are shorter and less ambitious than some of Evans' work on Impulse, but the group is excellent – and even in a shorter format, the conception of the work still contains plenty of rich new ideas. Players include Louis Mucci, John Carisi, Steve Lacy, Willie Ruff, Paul Chambers, Nick Stabulis, and "Zeke Tolin" on alto, who is certainly a more famous player under a fake name. Titles include "Ella Speed", "Big Stuff", "Jambangle", "Nobody's Heart", and "Remember". CD

Lennie TristanoLennie Tristano/New Tristano ... CD
Atlantic, 1955/1961. Used ... $6.99
A double-length set of work from one of the greatest pianists of the 50s – both of his Atlantic albums together on a single CD! First up is the self-titled Lennie Tristano, from 1955 – darkly imaginative work from the great Tristano – and one of the few full albums he ever cut as a leader! The record features the incredible track "Turkish Mambo" – which has Tristano overdubbed 3 times in this dark modal way that's totally amazing, and which will hook you into his playing immediately! A number of other tracks feature a quartet with Lee Konitz – always a good match for Tristano – and a few others have a great trio that's completed by Peter Ind and Jeff Morton. Tracks include "Requiem", "East 32nd", "You Go To My Head", and "Line Up". New Tristano is an incredible record by Lenny – one that features him playing solo piano, but in a way that's so inventive, so creative, so pyrotechnic, that Atlantic Records had to include text on the back cover saying "No use is made of multi-tracking, over-dubbing, or tape-speeding." The album's also one of the last (the last?) that Lennie ever cut – and although many other players are kind of faltering in last sessions like this, Lennie's sounding better than ever – ready to take on a realm of new challenges in the 60s. Titles include "Love Lines", "G Minor Complex", "Becoming", and "Deliberation". CD

Vandermark 5Beat Reader ... CD
Atavistic, 2008. Used ... $6.99
Searing work from the Vandermark 5 – just the kind of set that shows why these guys are have been one of the greatest things going on the US jazz scene for many years! In addition to Ken Vandermark's always-great work on reeds – baritone sax and clarinets this time around – the group's got a rock-solid rhythm section in drummer Tim Daisy and bassist Kent Kessler, both of whom play with a tremendous sense of power and timing, yet never in ways that are too-jamming or too over the top. The cello and light electronics of Fred Lonberg-Holm rounds out a slightly gentler side of the group's sound, and provides some great tonal colors too – and Dave Rempis joins Vandermark as the second reedman, blowing tremendous tenor and alto lines with a great sense of shape. Titles include "Friction", "Speedplay", "Signposts", "New Acrylic", "Any Given Number", and "Desireless". CD

✨✧ VariousApollo Saturday Night/Saturday Night At The Uptown ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1964. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of legendary live soul records – back to back on a single CD! Apollo Saturday Night is an incredible session of soul – tracks recorded live at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, featuring some of the hippest Stax and Atlantic artists in a very raw setting! The album's got a feel that's a lot less forced than other famous live Apollo sets of the time – very relaxed, but very authentic too – as the singers are given plenty of space to take the lead, and heard here with a quality that's more spontaneous than some of their studio sides. The audience gets a bit of space – but never as bombastically so as on a James Brown record – and given how many artists Atlantic discovered at The Apollo, the album's a nice nod of "thanks" in the right direction! Titles include "I Found A Love" and "Alabama Bound" by The Falcons, "Pain In My Heart" and "These Arms Of Mine" by Otis Redding, "Speedo's Back In Town" by The Coasters, "Misty" and "Say Yeah" by Doris Troy, "Rockin Chair" and "Walkin The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "Stand By Me" and "Groovin" by Ben E King, and a special finale version of "What'd I Say". Saturday Night At The Uptown features Atlantic soul live – recorded in a great grassroots setting! The performance comes from the Uptown Theater in Philly – as important to that city as The Apollo was to New York – and features a host of key Atlantic Records talents from the 60s, really hitting some hard and heavy notes in the live setting – with a bit of MC introduction at the start from Jimmy Bishop! There's a few great surprises here – artists you don't normally associate with Atlantic – and titles include "Mixed Up Shook Up Girl" by Patty & The Emblems, "Can't You Hear The Beat" by The Carltons, "My Girl Sloopy" and "The Watusi" by The Vibrations – plus "Under The Boardwalk" and "On Broadway" by The Drifters, "Down The Aisle" by Patti LaBelle & The Bluebells, and "I'm Gonna Cry" and "If You Need Me" by Wilson Pickett.

✨✧ Cory Wright OutfitApples + Oranges ... CD
Singlespeed, 2013. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's a great one for this project – especially if you understand the older reference of the saying – as the quintet manages to keep all the separate instruments at a level that's very distinct and individual, yet somehow creates a musical space of comparison as well! Cory Wright's bass clarinet and tenor, the alto and flute of Evan Francis, and trombone of Rob Ewing each maintain a very distinct quality in the performance – sometimes at a level that's even different from a rhythmic perspective – yet they really find a way to resonate together strongly, in some sort of jagged variant on counterpoint. Likewise, the bass of Lisa Mezzacappa and drums of Jordan Glenn often go off and do their own thing – yet the whole recording never has the feeling of free jazz, nor chaos. Titles include "Eyedrop", "The Sea & Space", "St Bruno's Preview", "Low Impact Critter", and "Freddie Awaits The Sleepers". CD
