Woody HermanMen From Mars ... LP
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the weirdest-titled albums ever from Woody Herman – possibly his answer to some of Shorty Rogers' sci-fi titled albums of the 50s! The set's somewhat straight, but pretty great overall – upbeat, jazzy, and swinging – with instrumentation that includes Woody himself on clarinet, plus Bill Perkins on tenor, Nat Pierce on piano and "organo" (a weird combo of organ and piano), Sam Taylor on tenor, and a four-trombone section featuring Urbie Green, Kai Winding, Frank Rehak, and Vern Friley. The album's got a great sci-fi cover image – and titles include "Marakeesh", "Four Others", " Wooftie", "Mambo The Most", and "Men From Mars". LP, Vinyl record album

Woody HermanWoody ... LP
Cadet, 1970. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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 HermanWoody Herman 1963 ... LP
Philips, 1963. Very Good+ ... $0.99
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 HermanBlue Flame ... CD
LRC, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from our favorite period of Woody Herman's career – that great time when he was mixing a bit of funk into his big band stylings – for a groovy groovy sound that made for some of his bounciest work ever! The set shows both sides of Woody's sound at the time – as it features some of driving, contemporary numbers he forged at Chess/Cadet with Richard Evans arrangements – plus some older numbers done in a more traditional mode, but still one with a heck of a lot of youthful spirit overall! The album is live, and players include Sal Nistico on tenor and John Hicks on piano – and the bass used in the group appears to be electric. The recording quality is surprisingly great on the set – and numbers include "Say A Little Prayer", "Light My Fire", "Free Again", "Hey Jude", "Hard To Keep My Mind On You", "Shadow Of Your Smile", and "Somewhere".

Fantasy, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky Woody from the 70s – an excellent and overlooked album, one that has Woody leading a great group with a fair bit of electric players, in a funky big band style that sparkles with the best of the genre! The group's filled with younger unknown players – but from the sound of the record, you can tell that these kids had been listening to a lot of funk – and had a great ear for mixing electric rhythms with cutting solos on tenor, trumpet, and funky flute. Includes a great version of Chick Corea's "Spain", plus the tracks "Lake Taco", "King Cobra", "Toothless Grin", "Jazzman", and "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Aless with Seldon PowellTony Aless & His Long Island Suite ... CD
Roost/Warner (Japan), 1955. Used ... $4.99
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

Buck ClaytonJumpin' At The Woodside ... LP

A classic from the undisputed master of the swing jazz jam session! Jumpin' At The Woodside has Buck Clayton recreating a Count Basie vibe, but in a much more open-ended, and long-grooving way! Most of the tracks on the record are nice and long – really opening up with a solo-heavy, jam session sort of style – and players shift from track to track, and include Woody Herman on clarinet, Coleman Hawkins on tenor, Al Cohn on tenor, Urbie Green on trombone, and Ruby Braff on trumpet. Titles include "Broadway", "Rock A Bye Basie", "Jumpin At The Woodside", and "Blue & Sentimental". LP, Vinyl record album

Four Brothers (Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, etc)Together Again ... CD
RCA, 1957. Used ... $11.99
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".

✨✧ 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".

Ten Years AfterUndead ... LP
Deram, 1968. Very Good+ ... $12.99
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!

Phil WoodsUnheard Herd ... CD
Jazzed Media, 2004. Used ... $9.99
A great revival of the classic Woody Herman groove – and a set that features fresh takes of under-recorded Herman charts from the late 40s, all with Phil Woods as the main soloist! The tunes come mostly from the Second Herd headed by Woody in the late 50s – a group that wasn't nearly as recorded as the first incarnation – and the performance here features trumpeter Ron Stout directing the LA Jazz Orchestra, and leaving plenty of room for Woods to come in and blow with that brilliantly crisp alto sax tone we love so much! Titles include "More Moon", "Yardbird Suite", "The Great Lie", "Keen & Peachy", and "Man Don't Be Ridiculous". CD

✨✧ Dick Collins & Runaway HerdHorn of Plenty (3x7" EP) ... 7-inch
RCA, 1954. Used 3x7" Gatefold (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ 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

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!

✨✧ Zoot Sims/Al Cohn/Herb Steward/Serge ChaloffFour Brothers Together Again ... CD
Vik/Sony (France), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".
