Wardell GrayWay Out Wardell (Crown) ... LP
Crown, 1948. Good ... $1.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with a deep groove. Cover has split seams held with old masking tape. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

Johnny HodgesBlues A-Plenty ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1958. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Blues-a-plenty, but still pretty darn jazzy too – as the "blues" in the title is just Verve's code for the way the album's put together – loose, unstructured, and a great format for Johnny Hodges to do some wonderful blowing on alto sax! The album also features strong work from Ben Webster, too – whose tone is perfect for the late nite vibe of the record – and other players include Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, Billy Strayhorn on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Sam Woodyard on drums – kind of an Ellington small combo, relaxing here in a wonderfully intimate setting. The sound is beautiful, and the album's one of Hodges' best-ever for Verve – with cuts that include "Cool Your Motor", "Honey Hill", "Saturday Afternoon Blues", and "I Didn't Know About You". CD
(Out of print.)

Helen HumesNice Jazz 1978 ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1978. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Mighty nice small combo performances from Helen Humes – a jazz vocalist from an older generation, but still very much alive and well here at the Nice Jazz Festival in 1978! The CD brings together performances from the event that feature Humes with four different groups – possibly because she was stepping in to add vocals in sets that were mostly instrumentals by the combos. Players include a fair bit of artists getting a great chance to record in the 70s by the French Black & Blue label – and the four combos include one with Paul Bascomb on tenor, Vic Dickenson on trombone, and Gerald Wiggins on piano; one with Harry Edison on trumpet, Guy Lafitte and Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor, and Dicky Wells on trombone; one with Lafitte on tenor and Wiggins on piano; and a final group with Edison on trumpet, Wiggins on piano, and Hank Crawford on alto. Titles include "If You Were A Viper", "Lover Man", "He May Be Your Man", "You Can Take My Man", "Going To Chicago", "Good For Nothing Joe", "I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me", and "Don't Worry About Me".

Jonah JonesNice Jazz 1978 ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1978. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
You might know trumpeter Jonah Jones best from his crossover jazz hit records of the 50s and 60s – especially his albums for Capitol – but by the time the 70s rolled around, Jones was really going back to his roots, as you'll hear here on a nice set of live tracks recorded in France! Jones really opens up with more extended solos than he was ever getting during his famous years – and the live setting is nice and relaxed, with almost that matured swing recording style that the Prestige Swingville series crafted, and which the Black & Blue label took up strongly with their studio work in the 70s. There's three different groups on the record – and players include Bob Fields and Gerry Wiggins on piano, Vic Dickenson on trombone, Wild Bill Davidson on trumpet, Bob Wilber on alto, and Pierre Michelot on bass. Titles include "Just In Time", "Mack The Knife", "Basin Street Blues", "You Made Me Love You", "Royal Garden Blues", and "It's All Right With Me". CD

✨✧ Coleman HawkinsColeman Hawkins All Stars ... CD
Prestige/Swingville/OJC, 1960. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Buddy TateAll Star Jive At Five (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
