✨✧ Woody HermanWoody ... LP
Cadet, 1970. Sealed ... $4.99
The most obscure of Woody's albums for Cadet – and a bit different than the other two! The album still features one side of upbeat groovy tunes – recorded with Richard Evans in a style that's a mix of big band funk and Cadet Records soul – and which show Woody to be a lot hipper than anyone might have thought at the time – putting together some amazing arrangements of tunes that soar with great power, still very jazzy, but also filled with a youthful energy that's really great. Includes a great version of "How Can I Be Sure", plus cool originals like "Smiling Phases", "A Stone Called Person", and "Saccharine Sally". The difference here, though, is that some of the tunes also have some vocals by Woody – sounding pretty cool, actually, and almost spoken – and that one side of the record is dominated by a long version of "Blues In The Night", with a solo by Tom Harrell.

Woody Herman Octet & BandBlues & Swing Groove ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1955/1956. Used ... $6.99
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 (Japan), 1955. Used ... $9.99
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 ... $4.99
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

A great little collection of hip 70s soul jazz tunes – recorded for the Mainstream level by a few different groups, but all united with a spirit of freedom and soulful exploration. Titles include "Dark Mood" by a group with Bobby Hutcherson, Harold Land, Mtume, and Buster Williams; "Quien Sabe" by Hadley Caliman, Larry Vuckovich, and others; "Miscegenation" by Buddy Terry, Woody Shaw, Eddie Henderson, and Joanne Brackeen; and "Valerie" by Blue Mitchell, Herman Riley, and Joe Sample.

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 ... $8.99 11.99
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".

Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the kind of record you might expect – neither a porno session, or a collection of work by artists named Richard – and instead, a sweet stack of rare tracks originally issued on 78rpm shellac – working together here in jiving jazzy brilliance! The work here is from the swing generation and beyond – with a strong focus on the sorts of sounds that would set the tone for the jump jive and R&B generation – including some especially nice vocal tracks! Titles on this first volume include "Jam Man" by Slim Gaillard, "The Minor Drag" by Fats Waller, "I Got Rhythm" by Horace Henderson, "Old Joe's Hittin The Jug" by Stuff Smith & His Onyx Club Orchestra, "Caledonia" by Woody Herman, "Voodoo Woman Blues" by Jay McShann, and "The Little Goose" by Rex Stewart's Big Eight.
