Woody Herman Octet & BandBlues & Swing Groove ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1955/1956. Used ... $8.99
A very unusual side of Woody Herman's career – one that features the mid 50s octet he put together to play live shows in Las Vegas! The lineup in the group is unusual – with two trumpets by Dick Collins and Johnny Coppola, bass trumpet by Cy Touff, tenor by Richie Kamuca, piano by Norman Pockrandt, and drums by Chuck Flores – plus clarinet and vocals from Woody himself, all in a very grooving sort of style! Arrangements are by Coppola, Touff, and Ralph Burns – and the vocal numbers really set the sound of the record strongly – showing a lively, entertaining side of Herman's talents that didn't always come through on other records. The use of trumpets, especially bass trumpet, makes for a very heavy bottom sound – especially considering that there's no bass in the group – and titles include "Bass Face", "Junior", "The Boot", "9:20 Special", "Bag's Groove", "Broadway", and "Wailing Wall". CD then moves on to feature 7 more numbers from a fuller Woody Herman band in 1956 – with Kamuca, Collins, Victor Feldman, and Vince Guaraldi – on titles that include "Pinetop's Blues", "Blues Groove", "Trouble In Mind", "Smack Dab In The Middle", and "I Want A Little Girl".

Tony Aless with Seldon PowellTony Aless & His Long Island Suite ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by pianist Tony Aless – an unsung hero of the big band years, especially in the Woody Herman group – and a great arranger too! This set's an all-original outing – a suite of tracks dedicated to Long Island, and played by a very hip group that has tenorist Seldon Powell in the lead – serving up work that's every bit as great here as on his own albums for Roost from the time! The record's got a slightly largish group – a tentet that's stuffed with great players – including Billy Bauer on guitar, JJ Johnson and Kai Winding on trombones, and Nick Travis on trumpet – all modernists who really bring in the sound you'd expect. Titles include "Fire Island", "Valley Stream", "Levittown", and "Massapequa". CD

Charlie ByrdBamba-Samba Bossa Nova ... CD
Everest/Empire, 1959. Used ... $6.99
A rare bit of early bossa jazz from the US – an obscure 1959 session by Charlie Byrd, and one that predates most of his more famous work on Riverside, Columbia, and Verve! The session's a bit different than most of Charlie's lighter bossa recordings – in that it features his acoustic guitar work over bigger band backings from Woody Herman – done in modes that borrow a sense of sound and space from bossa nova, but which also share plenty of modern jazz touches as well. Arrangers for the record are Sid Feller and Ralph Burns – the latter of whom does a tremendous job with his 4-part "Summer Sequence" – a tone-based Kenton-esque suite that's a real standout part of the record, even if it's not as bossa-styled as some of the other work. Other tunes are all originals by Charlie – and include "Bamba Samba", "Love Song Ballad", "Prelude A Cha Cha", and "Original #2". CD

Med FloryJazz Wave ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $14.99
A big, bold jazz wave from Med Flory – a leader/arranger from the west coast scene, and one who takes the power of some cool jazz legends, and puts them in a setting where they can really pack a punch! The group features Bill Holman on tenor, Al Porcino on trumpet, and Bob Enevoldsen on trombone – and there's a deftness to the horn arrangements that seems rooted in the best earlier Woody Herman modes, but taken to hipper territory in the end! There's lots of contributions from the soloists – even in the shorter space of the tunes – and titles include the originals "Davy Jones", "Jazz Wave", "Rapture", and "Sea Chase" – plus the tracks "An Occasional Man", "Jonah & The Whale", and "Ocean Motion".

John La PortaTheme & Variations (Conceptions plus previously unreleased material) ... CD
Fantasy, Late 50s. Used ... $3.99
Pretty amazing work from one of the greatest under-rated talents of 50s modern jazz! John LaPorta was a brilliant multi-instrumentalist who's probably best known for his work with Mingus in the mid 50s Jazz Workshop years, and for his earlier sides with Woody Herman – but it's on records under his own name that LaPorta really begins to shine. This great set features 14 tracks that were recorded in the 50s, but never issued before – and 9 more that were from the album Conceptions, issued briefly in the 50s by Fantasy Records. The first 14 tracks form a long suite of jazz-based compositions, handled with a modernist chamber-type approach – and based around some really great solo work on trumpet, baritone, tenor, and bass. The feel is almost like a 50s jazz soundtrack – with lots of moody moments paired with others that break out in a stronger swinging groove. The remaining tracks are equally nice – in a similar style, and showing LaPorta as a composer who could have handled just about any ambitious jazz project of the time. Titles include "Forward Motion", "Jazz Canon", "Images", "Lucidity", "Little Fantasy", "Ferme LaPorta", "En Rapport", and "Triplets You Say". CD

Sal NisticoNeo/Nistico ... LP
Beehive, 1978. Sealed ... $7.99
Fantastic small group work from tenorist Sal Nistico – and one of the few records that really finds a way to capture his genius! Sal got his start in the Woody Herman band of the 60s – and although a standout there, he really shines even more brightly here in a small group setting – with a sharp edge on his horn that maybe only comes through this well in a handful of his European recordings, especially for the Ego label. In the spirit of that imprint, the great trumpeter Ted Curson is on board – and Sal's tone is also balanced out nicely by some equally great work from Nick Brignola on baritone. The rest of the combo is equally great – with superb rhythm from Ronnie Mathews on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – and titles include "Be My Love", "Blues For KD", "Bambu", "Fee Fi Fo Fum", and "Anthropology".

✨✧ Zoot Sims/Al Cohn/Herb Steward/Serge ChaloffFour Brothers Together Again ... CD
Vik/Sony (France), 1957. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A set that's great in two different ways – first in that it revives the "four brothers" sound of four saxophonists at once, first forged in the Woody Herman band of the late 40s – and secondly, because the album's a further demonstration of the magical pairing of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims! The group here is only part of a recreation of the Herman lineup, as Al's presence is new – but he also contributes a lot to the songs and arrangements, which really make the small group setting sparkle. Tenors are by Cohn, Sims, and Herbie Steward – and Serge Chaloff plays baritone – with rhythm from Elliott Lawrence on piano, Burgher Jones on bass, and Don Lamond on drums. A number of tunes are new – not just remakes of Herman classics, but titles that riff on and modernize the earlier spirit – and tracks include "Ten Years Later", "Four & One More", "So Blue", "The Swinging Door", "Aged In Wood", "Here We Go Again", "The Pretty One", and "Four Brothers".

Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The latest volume in one of our favorite series of soul jazz tracks! This one opens the scope way past previous volumes, and features a rollicking party of tasty little groovers – most of them with a raw, uptempo, funky 45 jukebox kind of feel! Tracks are from the Chess, Fantasy, Jewel, and Brunswick catalogs – with many rare numbers like "Fever" by Sharon Cash, "Get Ready" by Ella Fitzgerald, "Ain't There Something That Money Can't Buy" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Light My Fire" by Erma Franklin, "Hush" by Woody Herman, "Another Plan For School Mix Up" by The Cals, "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" by Karen Hernandez, "Caesar's Pad" by Googie Rene, "The Point" by Aaron (Chico) Bailey & The Family Affair Band, "I Got To See My Baby" by Lee Jones & The Unforgotten Two, and "Ain't It A Groove" by Dave Hamilton. 23 cuts in all – and very very groovy!

✨✧ Dusko GoykovichInternational Jazz Octet with Kenny Clarke/Belgrade Blues ... CD
Cosmic Sounds (UK), 1961/1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great CD that brings together 2 rare albums by Yugoslavian trumpter Dusko Goykovich! The International Jazz Octet album features Goykovich leading an all-star group that includes players that would later become partners in the Clarke Boland Big Band – like Kenny Clarke, Francy Boland, Karl Drewo, and Derek Humble! Francy Boland handled the arrangements – and in a way, this one sounds a lot like some of the classic MPS work of the CBBB from the 60s. There's a nice hard groove on most tracks, with sweet soloing by Dusko on the ballads – and titles include "To Je Sve (That's All", "La Campimania", "Doo Doosh", and "Mr. X". Belgrade Blues is a rare 1966 session that features Goykovich leading a sextet comprised of musicians who were playing in Woody Herman's mid 60s group – Nat Pierce, Ronnie Zito, Sal Nistico, Carl Fontana, and Mike Moore – and on this open-ended hardbop set, the group are given a lot more room to solo than they might on some of Herman's albums from the time. The solos of Nistico are especially great – well-crafted, and sharply edged in a way that matches Goykovich's firey trumpet work. Titles include "Wee", "Belgrade Blues", and "Be My Love". CD

✨✧ Chubby JacksonChubby Takes Over ... CD
Fresh Sound, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Don't hold Chubby's name against him – because this is a really great little set, leaner and meaner than you might expect! The album has Chubby taking over from Woody Herman – with whom he'd worked for many years, and from whom he got most of the players for this session. The album's got that tight ensemble feel of Woody's best 50s work – extremely powerful and hard-swinging, but with searing breakout room for the soloists – who include Al Cohn, Frank Rehack, Sam Most, and Sam Markowitz. Titles include "Tradition", "A Ballad For Jai", "Oh Look At Me Now", "Mt Everest", and "Yes Indeed". CD

✨✧ VariousClassic Big Band Christmas Album ... LP
Columbia, Late 30s/1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great idea for a Christmas record – a set that pulls together a host of special Holiday tracks recorded during the big band generation, and serves them up in a really wonderful collection! Some of this material is from the 78rpm generation, and most are mono – and they work together here in a mix of vocal and instrumental numbers that go way way past the obvious! The cover's maybe a bit mainstream, but the choice of tracks is very thoughtful – and titles include "Snowfall" by Claude Thornhill, "Don't Wait Till The Night Before Christmas" by Eddy Duchin, "Winter Weather" by Peggy Lee & Benny Goodman, "It's Winter Again" by Isham Jones, "Let It Snow" by Woody Herman, "A Wonderful Winter" by Charlie Spivak, "Jingle Bells" by Glenn Miller, "Hello Mr Kringle" by Kay Kyser, "Little Jack Frost Get Lost" by Frankie Carle & Marjorie Hughes, and "I Want You For Christmas" by Russ Morgan.

✨✧ Lucky Thompson & Barney WilenFour Brothers ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great recasting of the older four brothers jazz modes – that four horn chorus and solo format first created by Woody Herman with Stan Getz – given a much more modern twist here by a top-shelf lineup of players! The group has the American genius Lucky Thompson on soprano and tenor – joined by European heavyweights Barney Wilen on soprano and tenor, Bent Jaedig on tenor, and Helmut Brandt on baritone – all coming together in this way that really recognizes the changes in jazz since the format was first developed – with strong echoes of both west coast modern and soulful hardbop, depending on the tune. Rhythm is from a quartet that features Roland Kovac on piano, Larry Atwell on guitar, Jurgen Ehlers on bass, and Rudy Pronk on drums – and the music comes from a never-issued studio performance in 1960. Titles include "Iris", "Dusseldorf Sud", "Have A Light", "Why Weep", "This Here", "Jahrgang", and "The Mysterioso Mr X". CD
