✨✧ 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

Ruby Braff, George Wein/Bob Brookmeyer & Al CohnJazz At Storyville 1 (Jazz At The Boston Arts Festival/Bob Brookmeyer Featuring Al Cohn) ... LP
Storyville/Trio (Japan), 1954. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A Japanese-only album – one that brings together two rare 10" jazz sessions for the Storyville label in Boston! First up is Jazz At The Boston Arts Festival – a great set of trad jazz grooves from the Boston scene of the 50s – recorded with an easygoing groove that's totally great, and put together by George Wein in the same spirit as some of his better-known live events of the time! Players include Ruby Braff on trumpet, Vic Dickenson and Dick Lefave on trombones, Al Drootin on clarinet, Sam Margolis on tenor, Buzzy Drootin on drums, and Wein himself on piano – and the tunes are open-ended swing-based numbers, with titles that include "High Society", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Swinging The Blues", "At The Jazz Band Ball", and "After You've Gone". The second half of the album is even better – the great 10" session Bob Brookmeyer Featuring Al Cohn – a great early session from trombonist Bob Brookmeyer – recorded with a light easy swing that's similar to his mid 50s work with Stan Getz, and in a format that's possibly more relaxed overall! This time around, Bob's working with Al Cohn on tenor – a nice choice for the date, and a player who gives the record a different feel than the more famous Getz/Brookmeyer combination of the time. The rest of the group includes John Williams on piano, Frank Isola on bass, and Bill Anthony on drums – and there's some great interplay between Cohn's tenor and Bob's trombone – the latter of which has that trademark compressed sound throughout! Titles include "Jive At Five", "In The Mode", "Skylark", and "Open Country". LP, Vinyl record album

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

✨✧ Coleman HawkinsColeman Hawkins All Stars ... CD
Prestige/Swingville/OJC, 1960. Used ... 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
