Wynton KellyKelly At Midnight ... CD
Vee Jay, 1960. Used ... $5.99
Midnite is right – as the session's a moody, mellow late nite one – just spare trio material by Wynton, played in a group that features Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums! The titles are all nice and long – and really let Kelly stretch out on the keys – working in a mode that's lyrical and soulful – on a set of titles that include include Babs Gonzales' "Weird Lullaby", plus "Skatin", "Temperance", "On Stage", and "Pot Luck".

Wynton KellyKelly Blue ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used ... $3.99
A great little session from Wynton Kelly – one that has him breaking out of the lyrical roots of his trio work, and hitting some harder notes as a leader of a larger hardbop group! The album features Kelly working in both trio and sextet format – the latter with players who include Nat Adderley, Bobby Jaspar, and Benny Golson; and the former with Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb (who also play with the sextet). The sextet tracks are the ones that we really love here – as they tend to feature 2 long original numbers by Kelly – much more open than usual, and in a mode that was rarely captured as well on Wynton's albums as a leader. The trio sides are still nice too, though – although a bit more like some of his other sides – and the album features 6 tracks in all, titles that include "Kelly Blue", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "Green Dollphin Street", "Keep It Moving", and "Old Clothes".

✨✧ Wynton KellyLast Trio Session ... CD
Delmark, 1968. Used ... $8.99
Wynton Kelly's last recording session – a trio side from 1968, with Paul Chambers on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums – not issued until later, after Kelly's death. The album's almost a return to the feel of his earlier Vee Jay albums with Chambers and Cobb – but tracks are a bit more open-ended than usual, with some more unusual titles in the mix. There's a total of 9 cuts in all – and titles include "Castilian Waltz", "Say A Little Prayer For Me", "Kelly's Blues", and "When Love Slips Away". CD

Wynton KellyUndiluted/It's All Right! ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1964/1965. Used ... $7.99
First up is Undiluted – a sweetly soulful set that proves that Wynton Kelly working for Verve was a heck of a great idea! There's a cohesion and direction to the session that's missing from some of Kelly's other work of the 60s – even though the format is mostly the same, with trio backing that includes Paul Chambers on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums. The tunes skip along with a really great little groove – soulful and lyrical, but always concerned with the swing – hitting all the right notes without any hoke, and making us love Kelly more than we expected! Titles include "Swinging til The Girls Come Home", "My Ship", "Out Front", "Never", "Blues On Purpose", "If You Could See Me Now", and "Six Eight" – plus the great Latin-ized groover "Bobo", which features some nice work by an uncredited flute player! It's All Right is a tight little groover – one of a few mid 60s gems done for Verve in a style that's harder-hitting and more focused than some of Kelly's other work! The record's got an approach that's a bit pop, but plenty darn soulful too – a style that focuses the already-great Kelly approach to the keys, and brings it into territory explored by Ramsey Lewis and Ray Bryant – kicking up the rhythms with lots of playful touches, including extra guitar by Kenny Burrell and conga from Candido, and even an added steel band on one number! The record's got a few mellower ballads that recall the lyrical Kelly mode of the past – but most is upbeat and very grooving – with titles that include "South Seas", "Not A Tear", "It's All Right", "Kelly Roll", "Moving Up", and "Escapade".

✨✧ Wynton KellySomeday My Prince Will Come ... CD
Vee Jay, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We're not sure if this was ever issued as a discrete album under this title or not – although the notes seem to indicate that that was the case. But to our record-collecting ears, the album seems to contain mostly material from the album that was originally titled Kelly At Midnight. The session dates from 1961, and features Kelly in a trio with Jimmy Cobb and Paul Chambers – grooving on soul jazz versions of tracks like "Someday My Prince Will Come", "Gone With The Wind", "Sassy", and "On Stage". The CD also features a quintet number with Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter – titled "Wrinkles", and a great little 8 minute tune that ranks with his best work of the time. Lots of bonus material – 15 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Wynton KellyWynton Kelly! ... LP
Vee Jay, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rock-solid work from Wynton Kelly – a standout trio side from the early 60s, and one of his few dates recorded for Vee Jay Records! Kelly seems to have a bit more kick here than in the 50s – and a bit more of a down to earth quality than on his later sides for Verve – really laying back on the keys of the piano, and getting some great help from a rhythm group that features Jimmy Cobbs on drums, and either Sam Jones or Paul Chambers on bass. The tunes are mostly familiar numbers, but they're offset by a few strong Kelly originals – including "Joe's Avenue" and "Sassy" – amidst other titles that include "Love I've Found You", "Autumn Leaves", "Gone With The Wind", and "Autumn Leaves". LP, Vinyl record album

Lorez AlexandriaAlexandria The Great ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful album from Lorez Alexanderia – one of her two excellent sessions for Impulse! The record was cut after Lorez recorded some great sides for the Argo label – and it works off the strength of those sides, taking her unique vocal approach, forged in R&B, but smoothed by jazz, into a whole new level of expression! The backing is great – small combo, with featured musicians who include Bunk Shank and Paul Horn on reeds, and Victor Feldman and Wynton Kelly on piano – all working with moody, soulful arrangements that are a perfect accompaniment to Lorez' beautiful voice. Includes the cuts "Get Me To The Church On Time", "Satin Doll", "Show Me", "The Best Is Yet to Come", "I'm Through With Love", and 5 more! CD

Quite possibly the best of Cleveland's albums for Mercury during the 50s – a tight hardbop set of tracks recorded with a septet that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Benny Golson on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, and Charlie Persip on drums. Tracks are more open-ended than on some of Cleveland's other albums, with more room for soloing. Titles include "Posterity", "A Jazz Ballad", "Jimmie's Tune", "Long Ago & Far Away", and "Goodbye Ebbets Field". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisIn Person Saturday Night At The Blackhawk – Vol 2 ... CD
Columbia, 1961. Used ... $1.99
Legendary early live work from Miles Davis – one of the first examples on record of the way that Davis could really stretch out in a concert setting! The music's a bit more straight ahead than later live dates, but still pretty open and exploratory – and in addition to Davis' sparkling work on trumpet, the album also features some killer tenor lines from Hank Mobley – working here as a key part of Miles' group, and blowing with a hell of a lot of soul. Rhythm is by the rock-solid trio of Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and titles include "Neo", "So What", "Fran Dance", and "Well You Needn't". CD

Miles DavisMiles Davis At Carnegie Hall – The Legendary Performance Of May 19, 1961 (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1961. Used ... $16.99
Sparkling live work from Miles Davis – and a set that captures both sides of his talents on Columbia at the time! Half the material features a smoking quintet – with Hank Mobley on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and the other half of the date features a larger orchestra led by Gil Evans – in the modern mode that make the Miles/Evans collaborations sound so great on some of the pair's studio records! Together, the material offers up a beautiful live portrait of Davis' early 60s genius – allowed a bit more space to roam in the live setting, on titles that include "So What", "New Rhumba", "Lament", and "No Blues" – all taken at a bit of a faster clip than in the studio, as Miles was wont to do in a live performance! 8 tracks in all. CD

Curtis FullerAll Star Sextets ... LP
Savoy, 1959. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Outstanding early work from Curtis Fuller, leading a smoking small group through bop and hard bop numbers in a modernist mode like some of the best Jazztet sides Art Farmer and Benny Golson would go on to cut a few years later. Golson's featured here alongside Fuller in the front line, with either Lee Morgan or Thad Jones on trumpet, and the group filled out with a batch of top notch sidemen in the rhythm section as the title implies: Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, Charlie Persip, Mcoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Dave Bailey. Some of the best bop sides issued on Savoy, and among the hardest to find, too! Includes "It's All Right With Me", "Arabia", "I'll Walk Alone", "Judy's Dilemma", "Wheatleigh Hall", "Kachin", "Bang Bang", "Imagination", "Blues De Funk" and "Lido Road". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieSchool Days ... LP
Regent/Savoy, 1951. Very Good ... $19.99
A bebop classic from Dizzy Gillespie – a full album comprised of some famous 78s recorded for the Savoy label at the start of the 50s – the kind of hard-grooving material that made Diz a fan favorite right from the start! There's some nice use of vocals in the mix – not just from Dizzy, but also from Joe Carroll as well – an overlooked vocalese genius from the early days of bebop – not as well-known as Eddie Jefferson or King Pleasure, but working here in a very similar spirit! Diz sings with Joe a bit too, and other players include JJ Johnson on trombone, Milt Jackson on vibes, Bill Graham on alto and baritone sax, and Wynton Kelly on piano. Cuts include "Bopsie's Blues", "School Days", "We Love To Boogie", "Umbrella Man", "I Couldn't Beat The Rap", "Pop's Confession", and "Lady Be Good". LP, Vinyl record album

Benny GolsonBenny Golson Quartet (Turning Point/Free) ... CD
Mercury/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1962. Used ... $9.99
2 LPs of Benny Golson quartet sessions – 1962's Turning Point and Free – back-to-back on CD! First up is Turning Point, a beautiful album showcasing the tenor stylings of Golson in an intimate setting with Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Golson plays two originals, plus standards, and his tone is fantastic throughout! This is one of the few efforts from the period that really shows him in an open-ended jazz vein, without a focus on his arrangements – which are excellent! Titles include "Turning Point", "Stella By Starlight", "Three Little Words", "Alone Together" and "Dear Kathy". Next up is Free – another great one! The material has a beautifully confident tone, with Golson's tenor cutting, changing, and swinging perfectly in lines that are masterfully crafted, yet full of raw emotion. This quartet includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Arthur Taylor on drums – and titles inlcude "Sock Cha-Cha", "Shades Of Stein", "Just By Myself", "My Romance" and "Just In Time".

✨✧ Billie HolidayLady Sings the Blues ... LP
Verve, 1956. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Possibly one of the most essential Billie Holiday albums for Verve – a set that carries the same title as her famous autobiography, and which also features many key numbers from her songbook at the time! The feel here is quite easygoing and relaxed – with small group backing behind Billie's vocals, which themselves are recorded cleanly and clearly throughout. One side features backing by a combo that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, and Paul Quinichette on tenor – and the other features a group that includes Bobby Tucker on piano, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Barney Kessel on guitar, and the great Willie Smith on alto sax. Titles include plenty of classics – including "God Bless The Child", "Strange Fruit", "Lady Sings The Blues", "No Good Man", "Good Morning Heartache", "I Must Have That Man", and "Trav'lin' Light".

Prestige, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A 1970 re-titled version of the earlier album The New Scene Of King Curtis – one of his best from the time! The "new scene" of King Curtis here is a jazz one – as Prestige takes him into the studio, and backs up his tenor with accompaniment from Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Oliver Jackson – plus trumpet from Nat Adderley, billed on the back as "Little Brother" for contractual reasons! The tracks are long and open, with less of King's tenor tricks, and more of a laidback Gene Ammons-ish style of blowing. Titles include "Little Brother Soul", "In A Funky Groove", "Have You Heard", and "Da Duh Duh". LP, Vinyl record album
(Purple label pressing. Cover has light wear and two label maker stickers on front.)

Johnny LytleLoop/New & Groovy ... CD
BGP (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99
Killer set that combines both of Johnny's rare albums cut for the tiny Tuba label in the mid 60s! The records both have a great funky vibes sound, with lots of tight drumming, and soulful bubbling organ grooves. These are very sought after in their original pressings, and both LPs usually fetch upwards of $40 when we get them in – and they fly right out the door as soon as they hit the web. Loop is the rarer of Johnny Lytle's two albums for the obscure Tuba label from Detroit. Johnny's classic trio, with Peppy Hinnant on organ, is backed by a larger group that features Wynton Kelly on piano and Willie Rodriguez on conga. New and Groovy is very nicely stripped down - and the focus of the album is on down-and-dirty groovers, perfect for the jazzy stepper set that still digs Lytle loads! Loads of short groovy steppin jazz vibes cuts, like "The Loop", "The Man", "The Snapper", "Selim", and way way more! CD

A rare second chapter to Mobley's famous Workout album – recorded in the early 60s, but not issued until the mid 80s – and even then, only momentarily on vinyl! The session's a great one – a quartet outing with a structure that's similar to Hank's classic Soul Station record, but which is a bit more fluid and free-thinking overall! The long tracks give Mobley plenty of room to open up on his solos – really commanding the record with his deeply soulful tone and strong sense of timing. Other players include Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – and titles include "Out Of Joe's Bag", "I Should Care", "Getting & Jettin", "Hank's Other Soul", and "Three Coins In A Fountain".

An extraordinary document of Mobley's earliest recordings for the Blue Note label! This box collects some of Mobley's hardest to find recordings and comprises of the LPs Hank Mobley Quartet, Hank Mobley Sextet, Hank Mobley & His All Stars, Hank Mobley Quintet, Hank, Hank Mobley, Curtain Call, Poppin' and Peckin' Time! Whew! If you know any of those albums, you know this is one whopping batch of hard bop that showcases the tenorist's soul jazz roots beautifully. The sidemen hear read like a who's who of the east coast scene of the 50s, with Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Donald Byrd, Lee Morgan, Milt Jackson, Art Farmer, John Jenkins, Sonny Clark, Kenny Dorham, Pepper Adams, Paul Chambers, Wynton Kelly and Philly Joe Jones all making appearances. There's a total of 56 tracks spread out over 6 discs, including titles like "Hank's Prank", 'Walkin' The Fence", "Just Coolin'", "Touch & Go", "Double Whammy", "Barrel Of Funk", "Lower Stratosphere", "Mobley's Musings", "Funk In Deep Freeze", "Wham & They're Off", "Startin' From Scratch", "Hi Groove, Low Feedback", "Double Exposure", "Don't Get Too Hip", "Poppin'", "East Of Brooklyn", "High & Flighty" and "Peckin' Time".

Blue Note, 1960. New Copy ... $6.99 9.98
A killer set of hardbop from the legendary Hank Mobley – recorded during the initial Mobley run at Blue Note, and a keen document of his amazing power on the tenor sax! The album's got a tightness that's almost impossible to believe – a summation of all the best bop trends of the 50s, rolled into a freewheeling and soulful expression, guided by Mobley's always-sharp ear for a groove. The group's great too – and Art Blakey is on drums, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and a young young Freddie Hubbard plays trumpet. All tracks are nice and long, with a firey hardbop sound, deeply held in place by Mobley's soulful tone on the tenor! Titles include "My Groove Your Move", "Baptist Beat", and "The Breakdown". CD features one more bonus track! CD

Simply astounding! Soul Station is a deceptively simple album that has tenor giant Hank Mobley playing standards and originals in a quartet with Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Blakey on drums– a spare and simple group, but one with a direct energy that's really amazing – in a way that makes for some of Mobley's best solos on record! The tracks here are all relatively basic in construction, but this territory allows all players to really relax and open up – especially Mobley, who really dominates the proceedings with some well-blown lines on tenor. Blakey's work is great too – nicely restrained, and the date marks one of his last sessions ever as a sideman. Titles include "Soul Station", "Split Feelin's", "Dig Dis", and "This I Dig Of You". LP, Vinyl record album

He never made a bad album, and even when playing straight, he had a sheer raw power that made every moment rich with excitement! This session's got a great lineup that features Grant Green on guitar, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all working together in razor-sharp formation, with strong guidance from Mobley's tenor in the lead.

A box packed with nothing but cracking hard bop! All of Lee Morgan's seminal 50s sides for Blue Note assembled in one package, including the albums Indeed!, Volume Two, Volume Three, City Lights, the Cooker and Candy. Morgan's quite young on these sessions, but his voice is fully formed and he plays with fire throughout, as do the sidemen, who include Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, Benny Golson, Gigi Gryce, Bobby Timmons, Philly Joe Jones, Art Taylor, Sonny Clark, Curtis Fuller, and Wynton Kelly. There's 37 tracks in all, spread out over 4 discs, including "Reggie Of Chester", "Little T", "Stand By", "Latin hangover", "D's Fink", "Slightly Hep", "Hasaan's Dream", "I Remember Clifford", "Mesabi Chant", "Domingo", "City Lights", "Kin Folks", "Heavy Dipper", "New-Ma", and "CTA".

Charlie Persip & His Jazz StatesmenDouble Or Nothin ... CD
Liberty (Japan), 1957. Used ... $6.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by crack drummer Charlie Persip – and a great record that you might have missed because Howard Rumsey's name is bigger on the cover than Charlie's! The album's one of Rumsey's "Lighthouse Series" sides of the 50s – but it's a lot harder-driving and more energy-filled than most of the other Lighthouse-related sides coming out of LA at the time. Half the record features Charlie's group – a set of east coasters that includes Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, and Wynton Kelly – and the other part features some of the players from that ensemble mixing it up with drummer Stan Levey and other LA talents that include Frank Rosolino, Conte Candoli, Bob Cooper, and others. In all, the album's a great meeting of east and west coast hardbop styles – with short driving tracks that include "Reggie Of Chester", "Celedia", "Moto", "The Champ", and "Wildwood". CD
