Woody HermanMy Kind Of Broadway ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1965. Used ... $18.99
Broadway tunes, but some very hip ones – thanks to mightily swinging work from the Woody Herman group of the 60s! Many of the numbers here are familiar ones pulled from big shows of the 1950s and early 60s – but Herman and crew change things up wonderfully by using the tunes as lively vehicles for jazz improvisation – coming together beautifully on the head arrangements, usually with upbeat rhythms – then taking off on solo passages that sparkle with touches from players who including Nat Pierce on piano, Dusko Goykovich and Don Rader on trumpets, Andy McGhee on tenor, Phil Wilson on trombone, and Woody himself on clarinet and alto sax! Titles include "A Lot Of Lovin To Do", "I Do Like You", "My Favorite Things", "Warm All Over", "Never Will I Marry", "Hello Young Lovers", "Who Can I Turn To", "This Can't Be Love", and "The Sound Of Music".

✨✧ Woody HermanWoody Herman 1963 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve, 1963. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Despite what you might think about some of Woody's big band contemporaries from the 40s, you've got to admit that Woody himself was always growing and changing as the decades went on – as this 1963 album will attest! Woody's in great form here – still working with a tight group of ensemble players, but also hitting a groovier sound that's more in keeping with the time of the material – pointing the way towards some of his sublime sides of the late 60s and early 70s with a subtle shift from swing to groove. You can hear that especially on some of the original tunes – like "Camel Walk", "Sig Ep", and "Tunin In" – and the album also features nice versions of Horace Silver's "Sister Sadie" and Horace Parlan's "Blues For JP".

✨✧ Woody HermanHeavy Exposure ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent stuff – a record that we love it to death, and listen to all the time! Woody Herman's band meets the soulful arrangements of Richard Evans, and the whole thing cooks nicely in the Chess studios in Chicago. The result is a tasty blend of soulful big band tracks, with a strident groove that Woody never duplicated, and with the kind of baroque arrangements that Evans was bringing to some of the best soul work on Cadet at the time. Donny Hathaway plays organ, and the group does a killer version of his own "Flying Easy". Other titles include "The Hut", "Sex Machine", and "It's Your Thing" – but it's all great!

Al Cohn/Bill Perkins/Richie KamucaBrothers! – The Complete Sessions ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1955. Used ... $4.99
A classic set of interlocking tenor work from 3 giants who made up the best part of Woody Herman's classic 4 horn lineup – Al Cohn, Bill Perkins, and Richie Kamuca – all coming together here in small group formation! The album's a wonderful example of the way that the hornplay of the larger Herman group had an influence on the smaller combos of the west coast scene – and Perkins and Kamuca are especially great here, working with a strong sense of precision, but also some nice humanity in their tone. Other group members include either Jimmy Raney or Barry Galbraith on guitar, Hank Jones on piano, John Beal on bass, and Chuck Flores on drums – and titles include "Cap Snapper", "Pro Ex", "Hags", "Gay Blade", and "The Walrus". This CD offers up the complete sessions, and features a number of extra tracks! CD

Hollywood Saxophone QuartetJazz In Hollywood ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Long before the advent of groups like Rova or the World Sax Quartet, the idea of a 4-horn group meant a recreation (or approximation) of Woody Herman's famous "4 Brothers" style. In this case, the west coast group features a stranger take on the style – in that it includes alto, soprano, tenor, and baritone saxes – yet still retains the basic tight ensemble reed style. Players include Russ Cheever, Jack Dumont, Morrie Crawford, and Bill Ulyate – and they are backed by bass and drums, but no piano. Kind of in a Mulliganish vein, with arrangements by Marty Paich, Lennie Niehaus, Jack Montrose, and Russ Garcia. Titles include "Nightcap", "New York City Ghost", "Mixed Commotions", "Make The Most of It", and "Ghost Of A Chance". LP, Vinyl record album

Lucky Thompson & Barney WilenFour Brothers ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. New Copy ... $18.99
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

✨✧ ChaseChase ... LP
Epic, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The debut album from Chase – one of the hippest jazz rock combos of the 70s! The self-titled Chase album first burned onto the market in 1971 – and it's a great distillation of a groove that was bubbling around in various other segments at the time – some of the tighter big band rhythms of the late 60s, as you might find in the work of Maynard Ferguson or Woody Herman – mixed with the hipper rhythms from the rockish underground, particularly in the work of Blood Sweat & Tears or Chicago. Chase is a fair bit jazzier than both of those groups – as they often put the horns more upfront than the vocals – although most numbers do have some sort of vocals as well. Instrumentation is heavy on trumpets – which come together in blasting, blaring groove, even despite the smaller size of the combo – and Phil Porter lays down some great keyboard lines that really help some of the best tracks cook nicely. Titles include "Handbags & Gladrags", "Livin In Heat", "Open Up Wide", "Hello Groceries", "Boys & Girls Together", and "Invitation To A River". LP, Vinyl record album

Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... 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!

✨✧ Jimmy GiuffreFour Brothers Sound ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing record by Jimmy Giuffre – one that he uses to replicate the "4 Brothers Sound" of the years when he played with Woody Herman as one of a group of four saxophonists blowing together – but done here by Jimmy himself on all 4 horns, using early overdubbing techniques that let him play four tenor sax parts at once! The sound is wonderful – filled with complex colors, tones, and changes you won't find on Giuffre's other albums of the time – and Jimmy's backed by usual trio-mates Brookmeyer and Jim Hall – with Brookmeyer on piano, swinging things a bit more than usual next to Hall's guitar. The 4-tenor frontline is wonderful, and titles include "Four Brothers", "Ode To Switzerland", "Space", "Blues In The Barn", and "Memphis In June". CD
