Dizzy GillespiePerceptions (Verve Elite pressing) ... CD
Verve, 1961. Used ... $19.99
A swirling array of tones, colors, and sounds – written and arranged by JJ Johnson, conducted by Gunther Schuller, and with Dizzy at the helm, blowing some of his most complicated solos ever. The approach is firmly in the Verve jazz orchestra tradition – and recalls the earlier ... (Jazz) read more CD

Dizzy GillespiePortrait Of Duke Ellington ... LP
Verve, 1960. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A portrait of Duke, done by Dizzy – and one that's got a whole different feel than you might think! Gillespie's working here with arrangements by a young Clare Fischer – who takes Ellington's themes and recasts them with an even deeper sense of color and tone – one that pushes ...

(Verve Inc pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has some wear and a half split top seam.)

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieSonny Rollins/Sonny Stitt Sessions ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Of the classic "big names get together for a session" albums on Verve, the best ones always seem to be the ones with one of the "Sonnys" in the list of leaders. This one compiles titles from the Sonny Side Up album – which featured Stitt and Rollins, plus others from 1957 ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dizzy Gillespie & Stan GetzDiz & Getz ... CD
Verve, 1955. Used ... $4.99
Nicely grooving material – with tracks that are a bit shorter than the usual Verve "celebrity meets celebrity" set, but which are no less well-played. Dizzy is always fantastic in this sort of loosely-crafted setting – and Getz's playing here is nicely relaxed, with more open- ... (Jazz) read more CD

Dizzy Gillespie & Stuff SmithDizzy Gillespie & Stuff Smith ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Diz meets the great jazz violinist in one of his few sets for Verve from the 50's. Wynton Kelly's on piano, and the groove is pretty laid-back, with the nice sort of long swing-oriented tracks that you'd find on some of the best Verve sessions from the time. Cuts include "Rio Pakistan", ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve pressing, with the trumpeter logo and the deep groove! Vinyl and cover are in great shape – save for a split along the top of the cover.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dizzy Gillespie with Sonny Rollins & Sonny StittDuets ... CD
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... $6.99
One of the greatest jam session albums on Verve! Although some of the label's "big horn talent" albums tended to be a bit snoozy, this one crackles with energy, and features three different classes of boppers working together perfectly on long, lively tracks with Ray Bryant on piano, ...

✨✧ Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Stitt, Sonny RollinsSonny Side Up ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little blowing session for Verve – one that has Dizzy Gillespie working here with two different "Sonnys" – Sonny Stitt and Sonny Rollins, both of whom play tenor on the set! The tracks here are all quite long and open – more loose vehicles for extended soloing ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Dizzy Gillespie/Django ReinhardtJazz From Paris ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some obscure work – and nice! We really dig side one of this LP – as it's got Diz in one of his rare "with strings" sessions, recorded here with backings by the Paris Opera-Comique Orchestra, on tunes that include "Night & Day", "The Man I Love", " ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy Giuffre 3Easy Way ... LP
Verve, 1959. Good+ ... $14.99
The Easy Way? Jimmy Giuffre never did anything the easy way – and his classic albums from the late 50s, some of the strongest modern jazz sides of the time, are a great testament to that fact! This album's one of the most obscure – and features Jimmy in his groundbreaking percussion-le ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy Giuffre 3Fusion ... LP
Verve, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the great albums that Jimmy Giuffre made for Verve, and one in which he really begins to stretch out – but not too far, and with that great edge that marks all of his recordings from the time. There's loads of free-floating interplay between Giuffre's clarinet, Paul Bley's piano, and ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Giuffre 3Thesis ... LP
Verve, 1961. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $28.99
Fantastic stuff from Jimmy Giuffre! This record captures him at a perfect turning point in his career – after his initial piano-less experiments on Atlantic, but before the totally free work that graced his later years. The group is his trio with Paul Bley on piano and Steve Swallow on bass ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel HamptonFlying Home ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
If you ask us, Hamp from this time is a lot more exciting than he was in the early days! Here, Hampton's working with his very popular mid 50s orchestra – in an open-ended Verve setting that lets the group play long and open-ended versions of the sorts of material that they'd do in a live ...

Lionel HamptonHamp's Big Four ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Although Lionel Hampton's always best remembered for his storming swing days in the early 40s, we love him on records like this one – an easy open-ended straight jazz session from the 50s, with lots of room for soloing in a much more jazz-oriented vein than you'll hear on Hamp's early records. ...

Lionel Hampton & Stan GetzHamp & Getz ... CD
Norgran/Verve, Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
A great little album that's one of Getz's strongest from the period! The format for the album is in the mode of Hampton's early 50s Verve sides – long tracks, very open-ended, cut in a small group format that shows a different side than his more popular big band grooving. There's only 5 ... (Jazz) read more CD
