✨✧ Vic Dickenson & Joe ThomasMainstream ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD

Wardell GrayShades Of Gray (aka Way Out Wardell) ... LP
United, 1948. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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

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

Lester YoungJazz Giants '56 (French pressing) ... LP
Verve, 1956. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A set with the date of 1956 very firmly planted in the title – but one that's also gone onto become a timeless ensemble session from Verve Records! The feel here is almost in jam session mode, but perhaps a bit tighter – a group of all-star players from the mid-50s, with Lester Young on tenor, Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, Teddy Wilson on piano, and Freddie Green on guitar – a nice mix of generations and styles that really helps open up the sound of the record. Tracks are nice and long, taken in that open, solo-conscious Verve mode – and tunes include "I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan", "This Year's Kisses", "You Can Depend On Me", and "I Didn't Know What Time It Was". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some pen and spots of gloss separation.)

✨✧ OdettaOdetta & The Blues ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(OBC pressing. Cover has library sticker remnants and an unglued bottom seam.)

✨✧ Coleman HawkinsColeman Hawkins All Stars ... CD
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
