Vic Dickenson & Joe ThomasMainstream ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great trad revival set from trombonist Vic Dickenson – working here with trumpeter Joe Thomas, in a style that really shows the respect that Atlantic Records had for older jazz modes – even during the height of their R&B and modern jazz years! The group's a great one – with trumpet from Buck Clayton, and tenor from Hal Singer and Buddy Tate – and the session features one great long jam session that's almost Verve-like in nature – a cut called "Blues For Baby", that's obviously a great setting for these players. Other shorter numbers include "Undecided", "Lamp Is Low", and "Crazy Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing.)

Roy Eldridge & Vic DickensonRoy Eldridge & Vic Dickenson With With Eddie Locke & His Friends ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Trombonist Vic Dickenson is more of a trad player in most settings – but here, he swings things nicely in a combo with Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Budd Johnson on tenor, and Tommy Flanagan on piano! The group's led by drummer Eddie Lock – who works with Major Holley to create some fluid, open grooves that let the horn soloists really take off – and Roy's bite works nicely to bring out some bolder moments from Vic – all underscored by the always-great work of Tate on tenor! Titles include the 16 minute jam session "Blues For My Friends", plus "No Greater Love", "Caravan", "Yesterdays", "Lady Be Good", and "Like Someone In Love". CD

OdettaOdetta & The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Early early work from Odetta – still done in the folksy mode you'd expect from other records of the 60s, but also with a slight flavor of trad jazz too – thanks to the presence of some great musicians on the date! The group features some standout horn work from Buck Clayton on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, and Herb Hall on clarinet – all of whom bring in a New Orleans flavor to the music that's quite surprising – almost a back door link of Odetta's groove to older African-American traditions, but not in the ways that are usually foregrounded in her work. Other players include Dick Wellstood on piano, Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass, and Shep Shepherd on drums – and titles include "Hard Oh Lord", "Oh My Babe", "Yonder Come The Blues", "Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor", "Hogan's Alley", and "Leavin This Mornin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Bill Grauer Productions pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and a split spine.)

Buddy TateAll Star Jive At Five (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Buddy Tate on the relatively trad side of the spectrum – but still blowing here with that wonderfully deep tone that we love on his famous tenor! The set features a group named as The Buddy Tate All Starts – a combo that also features Doc Cheatham on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, and Johnny Guarnieri on piano! As you'd guess from the lineup, there's an undercurrent of trad in the session – but all players certainly show off some more contemporary leanings in their solos – with modern edges that really show the different sort of sound you'd get from players like this in the 70s. Titles include "Constantly", "Jive At Five", "Sweethearts On Parade", and "I Never Knew". Also features a few bonus alternate takes. CD

Dicky WellsBones For The King ... LP
Felsted, 1958. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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
(UK pressing in Affinity.)

Dicky WellsStanley Dance Sessions – Bones For The King/Trombone Four In Hand ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1958/1959. Used ... $5.99
2 of the great late 50s swing sessions on the short-lived Felsted label – both albums that feature 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", "Bones For The King", "Girl Hunt", "Wine O Junction", and "Sweet Daddy Spo-de-o". 12 tracks in all! CD

Buck Clayton, Bud Freeman, Pee Wee Russel, et alNewport Jazz Festival All Stars ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1960. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
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". CD
