✨✧ Johnny GriffinJohnny Griffin Sextet ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Few people could make a session cook like Johnny Griffin in his early years – and this late 50s sextet date is great proof of that fact! The album's a relaxed, open, almost unstructured set that might be dubbed a "blowing session", were it not for the tightness of the players and the relatively unified feel of the date. Griffin's tenor is very firmly in the lead, and he's very clearly the leader here – helping shape the sound of the group that includes Donald Byrd on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone, Kenny Drew on piano, Wilbur Ware on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. There's some really hard-wailing extended numbers that come across as full-on hardbop workouts – really driving things along as you might guess with a rhythm section like that in action – but other tunes show some more fully-fleshed sounds from the group – that slight undercurrent of modern expression that was always present in Griff's music. Titles include "Johnny GG", "Catharsis", "Stix Trix", and "What's New" – plus a take on "Woody N You" that just has Griffin wailing along with the rhythm section! CD

Chick CoreaNow He Sings, Now He Sobs (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Solid State (Japan), 1968. Used Gatefold ... $14.99
Excellent early trio material from Chick – and proof that he could really be a fantastic player when he wanted to be! The album's filled with wonderful lyrical playing, and some of the best compositions of Corea's early career – all sparkling and bright, filled with creativity and imagination, and not crippled by overindulgence. Titles include "Now He Sings – Now He Sobs", "Steps – What Was", "Matrix", and "The Law Of Falling & Catching Up". CD

Sequel (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of funky sample tracks – with a range of grooves that goes way beyond the usual block party pack! This one's got 20 tracks in all – all at a great price, if you consider the fact that some of these numbers just about never show up in other formats – and the mode of the cuts runs from funky soul to jazzy grooves to a few tunes from surprising sources that bust out with funky breaks!
