Woody HermanWoody Herman's Big New Herd At The Monterey Jazz Festival ... CD
Koch, 1959. Used ... $7.99
Proof that Woody Herman kept on burning hard, long after the 40s – continuing to work in great new modes, with the best players he could find! There's a touch of 60s grooviness to the record – mixed with some older California modes – and the lineup features massive tenor work from Zoot Sims, Bill Perkins, and Richie Kamuca – all of whom really know how to soar out of the larger group when needed, yet come together with that tightness that made Herman famous, back in the day! More modern touches come from Victor Feldman on vibes and piano, and Charlie Byrd on guitar – adding a nice dimension not always heard with the earlier Herman group. The live setting allows for some sweet longer numbers with more solo space – like "Monterey Apple Tree" and "Like Some Blues Man" – as well as some shorter tight numbers in the band's ensemble style – like "The Magpie", "Skoobeedoobee", and a reading of "Four Brothers".

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

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".

Stan GetzComplete Columbia Albums Collection (Captain Marvel/Best Of Both Worlds/Master/Peacocks/Another World/Children Of The World/Fores (8CD set) ... CD
Sony, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 8 CDs ... $44.99
Stan Getz on Columbia Records – a period that's filled with wonderful moments and lots of surprises – all of which are on this great little set! Folks normally think "Verve" when they think of Stan Getz – but his Columbia years have some wonderful elements too – as Getz was really stretching out, and doing some amazing things with his tenor – taking on Coltrane inspirations, moving into some freer fusion modes, and even going back to some of those great Brazilian and modal styles he explored at Verve in the 60s! This package is filled with great records – a number of which haven't been on CD in the US – and also some rare bonus material too! Titles include the electric Chick Corea grooves of Captain Marvel, the bossa-revival of The Best Of Two Worlds, the soaring sounds of The Master, the Jimmy Rowles piano of The Peacocks, the soulful Another World, the gentle Children Of The World, the rare dutch soundtrack Forest Eyes, and a Bonus Disc of rare live material from 1977 at Montreux, the 1979 Havana Jam, and a Carnegie Hall Woody Herman tribute!

✨✧ Stan KentonKenton '76 ... LP
Creative World, 1976. Very Good ... $0.99
Like some of the better bandleaders of earlier years, Stan Kenton hit the 70s with a keen ear for younger talents and fresher sounds – and although his fame at the time was waning, the quality of his work really seemed to be taking off! This set's one of Stan's best from the period – a batch of warmly-grooving numbers that stretch out in a completely different way than earlier work – almost soul jazz at times, with a good blend of rhythms that soar with some of the changes that were showing up in Woody Herman's work of the time. The record's got a great jazz dance number called "Samba De Haps", with solo work by a young Tim Hagans – plus a nice soaring tune called "Time For A Change", and the tracks "Tiburon", "Decoupage", and "A Smith Named Greg".

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

✨✧ VariousClassic Big Band Christmas Album ... LP
Columbia, Late 30s/1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
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.

Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
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!

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Sal NisticoNeo/Nistico ... LP
Beehive, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Four Brothers (Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, etc)Together Again ... CD
RCA, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
How many different iterations of the "Four Brothers" were there? We don't know, but as near as we can tell, this grouping might most resemble the "original", with four West coast heavies joining forces for a swinging side. Originally making up the sax section of Woody Herman's Thundering Herd, Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Herbie Steward and Serge Chaloff are the brothers, and they're joined by fellow Herman alum Buddy Jones, plus Elliot Lawrence and Don Lamond in the rhythm section on this side for Vik. As you'd expect, the numbers are all West coast gems, by the likes of Cohn, Sims, Jimmy Giuffre, Gerry Mulligan and Manny Albam amongst others, and featuring the brothers blowing in a remarkably spry manner for such a heavyweight lineup. 10 tracks in all: "Four And One More", "So Blue", "The Swinging Door", 'Four In Hand", "A Quick One", 'Four Brothers", "Ten Years Later", "The Pretty One", "Aged In Wood" and "Here We Go Again".
