Wardell GrayWay Out Wardell ... CD CD format
RPM/Boplicity (UK), 1956. New Copy ... $8.99
Seminal sounds from the LA scene of the late 40s – one of the most important records to showcase the tenor talents of the legendary Wardell Gray – a key player on the harder side of the west coast for its formative bop years – and one whose career was cut short all too soon! The material here really shows that strong LA tradition of fervent jam session work – recorded here with Gray alongside additional tenor from Vido Musso – plus guitar from Barney Kessel and Irving Ashby, trumpet from Ernie Royal and Howard McGhee, trombone from Vic Dickenson, piano from Arnold Ross and Erroll Garner, and bass from Red Callender and Harry Babison. Tracks are nice and long – with plenty of room for Gray to show of his solo talents – and titles include "Tenderly", "Blue Lou", "Just You Just Me", and "One O'Clock Jump". CD

Edmond HallPetite Fleur ... CD CD format
United Artists/Mighty Quinn, 1959. Used ... $6.99
A compelling comeback set for clarinetist Edmond Hall – cut in 1959 when Chris Barber was enjoying a hit with a remake of Sidney Bechet's "Petite Fleur", which provided for a nice opportunity to get Hall back in the studio for a date under the same name! The record's got a lot more freedom than some of Hall's earlier work – with a few key longer tracks that expand upon the trad styles of earlier records, and some exceptional production that brings out the best strengths in all players. Hall's working here with Vic Dickenson, Ellis Larkins, Emmett Berry, Milt Hinton, and Jimmie Crawford – and titles include a great 9 minute "Ellington Medley", an 8 minute original titled "Off The Road", and the tunes "Don't Give Me Sympathy", "Adam & Evie", "Clarinet Marmalade", "Edmond Hall Blues", and "Petite Fleur".

Alberta HunterRemember My Name ... CD CD format
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Great later work from vocalist Alberta Hunter – a really well-recorded 70s session that was also done as a soundtrack – but which stands beautifully on its own! Backings here are by a great small combo, led by tenorist Budd Johnson and pianist Gerald Cook – with some nicely bluesy touches from Wally Richardson on guitar, plus trad horn lines from Vic Dickenson on trombone and Doc Cheatham on trumpet. Hunter's vocals are great – raspy enough to underscore her age and experience, yet wonderfully fluid as well – hardly dimmed at all by her advanced years. Titles include "I've Got A Mind To Ramble", "Workin Man", "You Reap Just What You Sow", "The Love I Have For You", "Chirpin The Blues", and "Some Sweet Day". CD

Jonah JonesJonah Jones Sextet ... CD CD format
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... $9.99
Not the Jonah Jones of Capitol Records crossover fame – but a different version of the player who's even leaner and meaner overall – set up here in a cool combo for this rare 50s date for Bethlehem Records! Jonah's still got some bright tones in his trumpet, but the whole group really gets down to business right away – shaking up some fresh tones from older New Orleans styles, all with an edgey energy that shows that the 50s revival wasn't just about playing the same on ways. Other players include Vic Dickenson and Urbie Green on trombone, Edmond Hall on clarinet, and George Clark on tenor – and titles include "Beale Street Blues", "JJ Special", "Stars Fell On Alabama", "European Blues", and "You're The Creame In My Coffee".

George Wein & The Newport All StarsJazz In Paris – Midnight Concert At The Olympia ... CD CD format
Smash/Universal (France), 1961. Used ... $6.99
A great Parisian outing from pianist George Wein – working here with a hip group of all-stars who include Ruby Braff on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Pee Wee Russell on clarinet – all in a trad swinging mode that recalls their famous work at the Newport Jazz Festival! The format is similar to a few other albums that Wein recorded under this name, but the setting's a bit more open and relaxed – not nearly as hokey or cliched, and very much an illustration that the best elements of trad jazz were given some new space to express themselves at the end of the 50s. Many tunes are somewhat laidback, with very well-recorded, well-voiced solos that showcase the players at the height of their creativity. Titles include "Blue & Sentimental", "Sugar", "I've Found A New Baby", "Blues Pour Commencer", and "Lover Come Back To Me". CD

Dicky WellsBones For The King ... LP LP format
Felsted, 1958. Very Good+ ... $33.99
One of the great late 50s swing sessions on the short-lived Felsted label – and an album that features trombonist Dicky Wells on some long and open-ended tunes! Dicky's playing here with fellow trombonists Benny Morton, Vic Dickenson, and George Matthews – as well as Buddy Tate on tenor, Buck Clayton on trumpet, and Skip Hall on organ on a few tracks. The lineup changes from side to side, but the feel is certainly the same – and very strong. Titles include "Hello Smack", "Come & Get It", "Stan's Dance", "You Took My Heart", and "Sweet Daddy Spo-de-o". LP, Vinyl record album
(US stereo pressing. Cover has some light wear and a few small spots of tape in the corners.)

Atlantic, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Trad jazz from this Dixieland/old Chicago-styled ensemble that featured Vic Dickenson, Billy Butterfield, Bud Freeman, Ralph Sutton, Lou McGarity, and Lawson and Haggart. Tracks are short and old-timey – recorded before a receptive crowd at New York's Roosevelt Grill in 1970. Titles include "That's A Plenty", "Five Point Blues", "Royal Garden Blues", "Come Back Sweet Papa", and "The Jazz Me Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

New Coleman HawkinsColeman Hawkins All Stars ... CD CD format
Prestige/Swingville/OJC, 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the sprawling session you'd usually get from a record with "all stars" in the title, and instead a tight small group record that features Coleman Hawkins at his later best! The setting is an outwardly trad one – recorded for the Swingville label with Joe Thomas on trumpet and Vic Dickenson on trombone – but there's a decidedly modern feel to the way that Hawk opens up the tunes – that undercurrent of darkness in his best later work, accented nicely by a hip rhythm trio that features Tommy Flanagan on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. Titles include "Cool Blue", "Some Stretching", "You Blew Out The Flame In My Heart", and "More Bounce To The Vonce". CD

New Buck Clayton, Bud Freeman, Pee Wee Russel, et alNewport Jazz Festival All Stars ... LP LP format
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good- ... $5.99
The trad side of the Newport Jazz Festival – a wonderfully open little set with a lineup that includes trumpeter Buck Clayton, tenorist Bud Freeman, trombonist Vick Dickenson, clarinetist Pee Wee Russell, and pianist George Wein! Clayton, Freeman, Russell, Dickenson, and Wein are joined by a few other trad players in this classic session cut for Atlantic after the band opened at the 1959 Newport Jazz Festival. As with a lot of the Atlantic trad sessions from this time, the recording quality is excellent, and the relaxed format offers the older players a chance to open up with solo space not afforded to them on earlier recordings. Tracks include "Rose Room", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Royal Garden Blues", and "Pee Wee Russell's Unique Sound". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing. Cover has some wear, a half split top seam with a small tear, a mark from sticker removal, and some splitting on the bottom seam.)

Jimmy RushingIf This Ain't The Blues ... LP LP format
Vanguard, Early 60s. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Killer rootsy blues from Jimmy Rushing – cut in a manner that's almost better than his original recordings! The session was done for Vanguard with a very trad sound, and with backing by great swing-era players like Buddy Tate, Clarence Johnson, Emmett Berry, and Vick Dickenson. Jimmy's voice is as great as ever – and tracks include "My Friend Mr. Blues", "Dinah", "Oh Love", "Sometimes I Think I Do", and "Take Me With You Baby". Great cover, too – with an image of Jimmy sitting outside of some old deli! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo presssing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam and spine.)
