Wardell GrayShades Of Gray (aka Way Out Wardell) ... LP
United, 1948. Very Good ... $6.99
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
(Light blue label Custom pressing.)

Alberta HunterRemember My Name ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... $7.99 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
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".

Dicky WellsBones For The King ... LP
Felsted, 1958. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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.)

✨✧ 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
(Black label Bill Grauer pressing.)

✨✧ Jimmy RushingIf This Ain't The Blues ... LP
Vanguard, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam.)
