Woody HermanHeavy Exposure ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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 HermanLight My Fire ... LP
Cadet, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterpiece – one of 2 crazy albums in which Woody Herman's late band meets the Cadet arrangements of Richard Evans. You might think the combination wouldn't work – Woody's big band flourishes meeting up with Evans' compressed soulful grooves – but gosh, the record is simply incredible, and it's one that we'd never part with in a million billion years! Worth it alone for the version of Edu Lobo's "Pontieo", but there's lots of other nice stuff – like "I Say A Little Prayer", "Hush", "Keep On Keepin On", and "Light My Fire". LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot Sims/Al Cohn/Herb Steward/Serge ChaloffFour Brothers Together Again ... CD
Vik/Sony (France), 1957. New Copy ... $5.99 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".

Ten Years AfterUndead (mono) ... LP
Deram/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
A searing live document of the magic of Ten Years After – recorded at London's Klooks Kleek as a great example of the kind of sound that got the group a huge amount of attention before they were even signed to a record label! The sound's still got some of the bluesy influences that both the group and that club were known for – but the guitar of Alvin Lee is really taking off, especially on the album's very long tracks – which seem to insist on solos that would go onto influence a whole psychedelic generation. The Hammond solos are great, too – and titles include "I May Be Wrong But I Won't Be Wrong Always", "Spider In My Web", "I'm Going Home", and a surprisingly great take on Woody Herman's "Woodchopper's Ball", which is completely transformed here!

Lucky Thompson & Barney WilenFour Brothers ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Ben Webster & Harry EdisonComplete Sextet Studio Sessions (Sweets/Some Of My Favorites/Gee Baby Ain't I Good To You/Songs For Hip Lovers) ... CD
Verve/Lonehill (Spain), Late 50s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A big assortment of sextet sessions featuring Ben Webster and Harry Edison – 2CDs worth of material collected from the original LPs Sweets, Some Of My Favorites, Gee Baby Ain't I Good To You, and Songs For Hip Lovers! First up are 9 tracks from Sweets – Easy-going Verve swing at its best – the kind of small group session that let a player like Harry "Sweets" Edison shine in a way that he didn't always get to do in a larger group! He's joined by Webster on tenor sax, Barney Kessel on guitar, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Alvin Stoller on drums and Joe Mondragon on bass. Titles include several Edison originals – including "Hollering At The Watkins", "Used To Be Basie", "Studio Call", "Opus 711", "K.M. Blues", and "Walkin With Sweets". Next up are 3 tracks from the Some Of My Favorites LP: Easy On The Eyes", "Just A Mood" and "Sunrise Blues". The second CD starts with 8 tracks from Gee, Baby Ain't I Good To You – which features Herb Ellis on guitar for a few tracks. Titles include "Blues For The Blues", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Taste On The Place", "Blues For Bill Basie" and the title track. Bonus tracks include 6 numbers from the Woody Herman vocals album Songs For Hip Lovers – the ones from that set which feature Web & Sweets! Titles include "Alone Together", "Willow, Weep For Me", "Bidin' My Time", "Makin' Whoopie" and more. CD

✨✧ VariousClassic Big Band Christmas Album ... LP
Columbia, Late 30s/1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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 ... $10.99 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!

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Jimmy WitherspoonJimmy Witherspoon At Monterey (Jimmy Witherspoon At The Monterey Jazz Festival) ... LP
Hi Fi, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arguably one of the greatest albums ever cut by Jimmy Witherspoon – recorded live at an early Monterey Jazz Festival, and done in a style that shows the strong link between jazz and blues in Jimmy's work! The group on the set includes Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, Coleman Hawkins, and Woody Herman – and the longish tracks on the set give them all more than enough room to solo alongside Jimmy's bluesy vocals. The album's also one of the first to be produced by a young David Axelrod – and shows a clear respect for both the singer and the musicians, in a combination that would come out even more strongly on Axe's later productions for Capitol. Titles include "No Rollin Blues", "Big Fine Girl", "Good Rockin Tonight", "Ain't Nobody's Business", and "When I Been Drinkin". LP, Vinyl record album
