✨✧ Woody HermanHeavy Exposure ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Very Good- ... $1.99
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!

Woody HermanThundering Herd ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, 1974. Used ... $3.99
Great work from Woody – not as funky as some of his other 70s albums, but still a really excellent album with a much better sound than you'd expect! The group's filled with young hip players – most of whom we don't know, but who play with a lot of soul – and even Woody's pretty darn great, playing alto and soprano sax with much more of an edge than in earlier years. Inlcudes a funky remake of "Corazon", plus the tracks "Naima", "Lazy Bird", "America Drinks & Goes Home", "Blues For Poland", and "Bass Folk Song". Nice electric piano work too! CD

✨✧ Dick Collins & Runaway HerdHorn of Plenty ... LP
RCA, 1954. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
Trumpeter Dick Collins plays with a "runaway herd" of saxophonists culled from the band of his boss, Woody Herman – a really great lineup that features Al Cohn on tenor, Med Flory on alto, Jack Nimitz on baritone, and Bill Perkins on flute and tenor too! The blend of reeds is totally great – often used tightly to offset Collins' trumpet solos in the lead – well-blown and economical, but allowing for a bit of solo space at points for the reed players too. Rhythm is by Nat Pierce on piano, Red Kelly on bass, and Chuck Flores on drums – and the album's got a surprisingly easygoing feel at times, more so than other RCA dates of this type. Titles include "Angel Eyes", "Why Was I Born", "Tricky Dick", "No Soap", "Very Shifty", and "The Long Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has seam splitting and wear on the back.)

Four Brothers (Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, etc)Together Again (French pressing) ... LP
Vik/RCA (France), 1957. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy GiuffreFour Brothers Sound ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Terry Gibbs & Bill HarrisWoodchoppers' Ball (aka Ex-Hermanites) ... LP
Mode/Premier, 1957. Very Good ... $4.99
A repackaging of the album Ex Hermanites – originally issued with Bill Harris as a leader! On the set, trombonist Harris leads a quintet of "Ex Hermanites" – that is, players who used to work, like Bill, in the group of Woody Herman – and who are stepping out here on their own in a swinging batch of small group numbers! The origin of and setting for the players is no accident – as Herman's group of the era was such a hotbed of musical activity that it was a key force in jazz for players getting together and trying out ideas of their own. Harris himself is a great guiding force on the set – blowing with a style that's fluidly soulful, and warmly spontaneous – accompanied by Terry Gibbs on vibes, Lou Levy on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Stan Levey on drums – the latter 3 of whom make one heck of a great rhythm section! Titles include "Everywhere", "Apple Honey", "Lemon Drop", "Early Autumn", "Blue Flame", and "Laura". LP, Vinyl record album

Chubby JacksonOoh What An Outfit – New York 1949 ... CD
Uptown, 1949. New Copy 2 CDs ... $20.99 24.98
A marvelous document of the power of bassist Chubby Jackson at his best – served up here in a double-length package of rare recordings from the end of the 40s! Chubby has a really unique place in jazz – a special space between bop and swing, where he was able to work with some of the best players of his generation – and help forge an audience for the modern tones of the newer music by bringing in some of the more powerful elements of the old! This quality really comes through in the initial batch of big band recordings in the package, which take up most of CD1 – tunes that echo some of the work Jackson had done with Woody Herman's group in the late 40s, but arguably even more hard-biting and boppish – with strong work from Frank Socolow on alto, Teddy Charles on vibes, Ray Turner and Al Young on tenor, and the trio of Norman Faye, Al Porcino, and Charlie Walp on trumpets. Arrangements are by drummer Tiny Khan for the big band sides – and the set also features smaller ensemble work with Gene Roland's Boppers, led by trumpeter Gene Roland – plus work by the quintet of vibist Joe Roland with singer Paula Castle. The set also features a very cool combo recorded in Sweden – Chubby Jackson's Fifth Dimensional Jazz Group – with Conte Candoli on trumpet, Terry Gibbs on vibes, Lou Levy on piano, and Frank Socolow on tenor. The whopping package features 2CDs, 37 tracks – and mixes together live tracks, radio broadcasts, and some rare recording sessions too. CD

Nat Pierce-Dick Collins/Charlie MarianoNat Pierce-Dick Collins Nonet/Charlie Mariano Sextet ... LP
Fantasy, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $8.99
An incredible set of tracks – featuring some of the best early work by a young Charlie Mariano! Side one of the album features a nonet led by the team of Nat Pierce and Dick Collins – larger arrangements in a Woody Herman-esque style, played by a group that includes Jerry Coker, Jack Nimetz, and Cy Touff – on titles that include "Some of These Days", "Easy Living", "Blue Lester", and "The King". But the real charmer here is side two – fantastic material by a sextet led by Charlie Mariano, recorded in San Francisco with a wonderful focus on Charlie's edgey early tone! The Mariano sides are tremendous – really incredible, with a sense of soul and depth that grabs you right away – and which even surpasses Charlie's excellent 50s work on Bethlehem. Titles include "The Nymph", "The Thrill Is Gone", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "After Coffee", and "My Friend Ethel". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ 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
