Dexter GordonCa'Purange ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1973. Used ... $11.99
One of Dexter's best sessions from the 70s – and one that's got more soul, more power, and more ensemble playing than a lot of his other "soloist with European rhythm section" albums. The group's a great one – with Thad Jones, Hank Jones, and Louis Hayes laying down some very ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Dexter GordonPanther! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1970. Used ... $6.99
An overlooked US date from 1970 – a set that Dexter Gordon recorded during a quick stop home from his time abroad – really cooking away in the Prestige studios with a great little rhythm section, in ways that are quite different than his better-known European work of the time! The ... (Jazz) read more CD

Bennie GreenBennie Green With Art Farmer ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... $14.99
A brilliant pairing from the 50s hardbop years at Prestige – the tight trombone of Bennie Green, and the sweet trumpet of Art Farmer – both captured here at an early point when they had plenty of edge! The match is a great one – given the trumpet-like phrasing that often made ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Bennie GreenWalking Down ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... $14.99
A stone classic from the great Bennie Green – working here at a sharp 50s level that easily makes him one of the most hard-edged players in jazz at the time! Bennie's rooted in bop, but has plenty of deeper soulful elements too – a groove that others would expand more in the soul jazz ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Bennie Green QuintetGlidin' Along ... CD
Jazzland/OJC, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Benny Green's trombone playing has always been a bright light in a sometimes bleak side of the jazz spectrum. His style is deep and soulful, and he swings the trombone with a fluidity that most would apply to hardbop trumpet players. This sweet quintet session from 1961 has him playing in a very ...

✨✧ Johnny GriffinBig Soul Band (with bonus track) ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet little album from Johnny – quite different than most of his other sessions at the time, as this one features a big band – a "Big Soul Band", as the title says – filled with some strong Chicago and soul jazz players, and featuring killer arrangements by the great ... (Jazz) read more CD

Johnny GriffinGrab This! ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... $18.99
A really obscure little session from tenorist Johnny Griffin – and one of his few dates from the time cut with an organist – in this case the up-and-coming LA player Paul Bryant! Bryant's probably best known for his cookers with Curtis Amy, and he hits a similar mode here – by ... (Jazz) read more CD

Johnny GriffinJohnny Griffin Sextet ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $6.99
Few people could make a session cook like Johnny Griffin in his early years – and this late 50s sextet date is great proof of that fact! The album's a relaxed, open, almost unstructured set that might be dubbed a "blowing session", were it not for the tightness of the players and ... (Jazz) read more CD

Johnny GriffinLittle Giant ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used ... $5.99
One of Johnny Griffin's hard blowing LPs as a leader for Jazzland – recorded with a crack lineup that includes Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, Wynton Kelly on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Albert Heath on drums! This is the kind of work that the term "hard ... (Jazz) read more CD

Johnny GriffinStudio Jazz Party ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1960. Used ... $22.99
Stellar early Riverside session put together by Johnny Griffin's friend (and impresario) Babs Gonzales. Babs decided that the session would be real swingin', real groovy, if they had sort of a "party" in the studio, so he opened up the session, invited a lot of guests, got a lot of food ...

✨✧ Johnny GriffinWay Out! ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the sharpest 50s sessions from Johnny Griffin – a hip quartet date for Riverside, done at the time when he was working heavily with Thelonious Monk! The album's definitely got an angular groove that shows Monk's influence, but it's also shows Griffin's Chicago's roots as well – ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Johnny GriffinWhite Gardenia ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used ... $14.99
A tribute to Billie Holiday – with Johnny Griffin's tenor fronting some larger backing on strings and brass – but hipper than most efforts of this type, thanks to some great arrangements by Melba Liston and Norman Simmons! The record's a good change from some of Johnny's more full-on ... (Jazz) read more CD

Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost jazz treasure – previously unissued material from the mighty 60s pairing of Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Johnny Griffin – a twin-tenor team that was one of the strongest forces in jazz at the time! The set's a really unusual one in that it has the pair moving away from the hard-wailin ... (Jazz) read more CD

Johnny Griffin & Eddie Lockjaw DavisTough Tenor Favorites ... CD
Jazzland/OJC, 1962. Used ... $16.99
The soulful tenor of Eddie Lockjaw Davis meets the modernist bop sounds of Johnny Griffin in another one of their fierce two-tenor sides from the early 60s! The group on here includes the always-amazing Horace Parlan on piano, plus some lively drumming from the oft-overlooked Ben Riley. This one's ... (Jazz) read more CD

Fantasy/OJC, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another one of the great Griffin/Davis collaborations from the early 60's, and a tight bit of work with the added appearance of Junior Mance on piano. As you might expect from this cast of characters,the set's got a groove that straddles the hardbop and soul jazz camps, and Griffin and Davis prove ... (Jazz) read more CD

Tiny GrimesCallin' The Blues ... CD
Prestige/OJC, Late 50s. Used ... $14.99
A seminal bit of early soul jazz guitar work from Tiny Grimes – a player better known for his work in an R&B vein, but an excellent jazz-based talent on this tasty session! Tiny's working here with a group that includes Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor and Ray Bryant on piano, in a mode that ... (Jazz) read more CD

Swingville/OJC, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tiny's in Swingville – and as far as we're concerned, it's a great place to be! The set's got Tiny grooving on guitar in that easy-going, open-ended style that made the Prestige Swingville sessions so great – nothing fancy, just a relaxed approach to the session that makes for some of ...

New Jazz/OJC, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set from one of the most-overlooked talents of the 50s – the great Gigi Gryce, a fantastic arranger and player whose talents get more forgotten as every year passes by! This set features Gryce working in a well-fitting quintet with the great Richard Williams on trumpet – and ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Gigi GryceSaying Somethin' ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real heavy-hitter – one of the few albums of hardbop that Gryce cut for Prestige, done in a more relaxed, more soulful, more down-n-dirty style than some of his more arranged work from the 50s. The groove's still pretty modern on the set – thanks to a great group that includes ... (Jazz) read more CD

Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used ... $14.99
Hard to find Riverside LP of this group led by Gigi Gryce running down nice hard bop numbers. There's no dry academic performances here, not that you'd guess that from the line-up, but the title kind of leads you in that direction. Donald Byrd and Gryce are playing nice and hard up front, with ... (Jazz) read more CD
