Woody HermanWoody Herman 1963 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve/Philips, 1963. Used ... $1.99
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 Herman & Tito PuenteHerman's Heat & Puente's Beat! ... LP
Everest, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99
A great little meeting of Latin and jazz players – an oft-overlooked album in Puente's catalog of the time! The album features Woody leading a small group of jazz players – including Al Cohn, Paul Quinichette, Billy Byers, and Nick Travis – with extra timbales by Puente and congas by Ray Barretto – and the overall approach is light but tight, with more of a straight jazz component than you'd find on most of Tito's records from the time, but also a wonderfully driven groove that still keeps the rhythms mostly on the Latin end of things! Titles include "Cha Cha Chick", "Tito Meets Woody", "Pillar To Post", "Midnight Sun", "Blue Station", "Mambo Herd", and "Balu". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Woody HermanFourth Herd (Gold CD) ... CD
Jazzland/Mobile Fidelity, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A unique album from Woody Herman – a one-off recording for the Jazzland label, and one that has him working with both a full group (his Fourth Herd), and with a smaller combo of players! The album's noteworthy for the presence of some great solo stars – Zoot Sims on tenor, Nat Adderley on cornet, and Eddie Costa on vibes – as well as Herman himself on clarinet. Titles are pretty short, but very swinging – and tunes include "Lament For Linda", "The Thirteenth Instant", "Johnny On The Spot", "The Magpie", "Blues For Indian Jim", and "Summer Nights". CD

Fantasy, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hip Woody – recorded right after his years with Cadet, and in a similar funky big band vein! The record's got a very nice version of "Fat Mama", plus one of our all-time favorites, "Alone Again Naturally"! Players include Harold Danko on Fender Rhodes, Pat Martino on guitar, and Al Johnson on bass. Other tunes include "Bill's Blues", "Sandia Chicao", and "It's Too Late". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy BurnsDrum Set Artistry ... LP
Alfred Music, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $13.99
Drummer Roy Burns leads a funky big band that includes Fender Rhodes, electric bass, and electric guitar – in addition to the usual brace of horns and woodwinds. The tracks are all quite hip – bouncing along in a mode that might have made the folks at MPS proud, or which reminds us of the funkier side of Stan Kenton or Woody Herman during the 70s. Titles include "Funky Shuffle", "Meet A Cheetah", "All About The Blues", "Timetable", "Big Orange", and "Look Out". LP, Vinyl record album

ChaseChase/Ennea/Pure Music ... CD
Epic/Wounded Bird, 1971/1972/1974. Used 2CD ... $11.99
A trio of albums 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". Ennea is a jazz rock classic that still sounds pretty darn tasty today – forged on the heels of Chicago and Blood Sweat & Tears, but with a sound that's leaner and meaner! The group's led by trumpeter Bill Chase – hence their name – and features lead vocals by GG Shinn and Terry Richards, both in a style that's got the same blue-eyed jazz soul overtones as that used by the groups mentioned above. The real strength of the tracks, though, is their jazzy backings – horn-heavy, as you'd expect, and hitting some great riffs and licks on the album's side-long title "suite", which features many instrumental passages. Titles include "Hades", "Aphrodite (parts 1 & 2)", "Zeus", "Poseidon", "Cronus", "It Won't Be Long", "I Can Feel It", and "Night". Pure Music is the third album from the mighty Chase – and proof that the group was still going strong even after their groundbreaking debut! The grooves here are almost tighter than before – a bit more complicated instrumentally, with some of the trumpets backed off a bit, to leave more room for great lines on guitar and keyboards. There's still some vocals on the record, but they seem a bit more on the backburner than before – and titles include "Close Up Tight", "Twinkles", "Weird Song #1", "Run Back To Mama", and "Bochawa".

Jimmy GiuffreFour Brothers Sound ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1958. New Copy ... $8.99
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". CD

Lucky Thompson & Barney WilenFour Brothers ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. New Copy ... $19.99
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

Jimmy Witherspoon & Others1959 Monterey Jazz Festival (aka Jimmy Witherspoon At Monterey) ... LP
Hi Fi/Everest, 1959. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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

✨✧ Dusko GoykovichInternational Jazz Octet with Kenny Clarke/Belgrade Blues ... CD
Cosmic Sounds (UK), 1961/1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great CD that brings together 2 rare albums by Yugoslavian trumpter Dusko Goykovich! The International Jazz Octet album features Goykovich leading an all-star group that includes players that would later become partners in the Clarke Boland Big Band – like Kenny Clarke, Francy Boland, Karl Drewo, and Derek Humble! Francy Boland handled the arrangements – and in a way, this one sounds a lot like some of the classic MPS work of the CBBB from the 60s. There's a nice hard groove on most tracks, with sweet soloing by Dusko on the ballads – and titles include "To Je Sve (That's All", "La Campimania", "Doo Doosh", and "Mr. X". Belgrade Blues is a rare 1966 session that features Goykovich leading a sextet comprised of musicians who were playing in Woody Herman's mid 60s group – Nat Pierce, Ronnie Zito, Sal Nistico, Carl Fontana, and Mike Moore – and on this open-ended hardbop set, the group are given a lot more room to solo than they might on some of Herman's albums from the time. The solos of Nistico are especially great – well-crafted, and sharply edged in a way that matches Goykovich's firey trumpet work. Titles include "Wee", "Belgrade Blues", and "Be My Love". CD

✨✧ Bill HarrisEx-Hermanites ... CD
Mode/VSOP, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Trombonist Bill 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". CD

✨✧ Bill WatrousTiger Of San Pedro ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked bit of 70s big band jamming – one of a few great sides cut for Columbia by trombonist Bill Watrous, done in a mode that's partially like the funky Maynard Ferguson records for the label at the time, but which also has some of the hipper and more expansive approaches that you'd get on some of Woody Herman's best from the period, or (even better) some of the MPS big band classics of the time! The playing is mostly all acoustic, but there is a bit of Fender Rhodes, clavinet, guitar, and organ on the session – bubbling under with a style that pumps up the groove nicely – bringing in a sound that's not entirely funky, but still tight, spacious, and syncopated enough to really kick into the tracks! Titles include "TS TS", "Somewhere Along The Way", "Dirty Dan", "Quiet Lady", and the excellent "Tiger Of San Pedro". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ HerdsmenHerdsmen Play Paris ... LP
Fantasy, 1954. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic from The Herdsmen – a smaller group of players who'd all worked with Woody Herman – all of them budding modernists in their own right! The ensemble here includes Ralph Burns on piano, Dick Collins on trumpet, Cy Touff on bass trumpet, Jerry Coker and Bill Perkins on tenor, and Dick Hafer on alto – plus rhythm from French players who include Henri Renaud on piano, Jimmy Gourley on guitar, and Jean Louis Viale on drums! There's an open, flowing quality to the work that's great – a bit more of a relaxed vibe than the Woody Herman sound, with lots of nice Parisian postwar touches in the way the tunes are put together. Titles include "The Gypsy", "Wet Back On The Left Bank", "Embarkation", "Just 40 Bars", "Pot Luck", and "Palm Cafe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy green vinyl pressing! Cover has some black tape on bottom seam, and clear on top – but overall still a very nice copy.)
