Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good+
Maybe Zoot was trying to compete with Stan Getz here, we don't know, but the groove's actually pretty great, and it's nice to hear a soloist as strong as Zoot working his way through some bossa covers. Of course this isn't authentic, but it's a nice groovy album nonetheless, and the arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Golden Boy
Colpix, 1963. Very Good
An obscure Jazz Messengers session – but a great one! The album is ostensibly a set of jazz versions of tunes from the musical Golden Boy, and the group this time is a larger one than usual – a total of 10 players, led by Blakey – and playing beautifully over arrangements from ...

Eddie Costa – Memorial Concert
Colpix, Early 60s. Good+
An interesting tribute to the passing of pianist Eddie Costa – mostly because the overall feel is much more in a soulful hardbop mode, quite different than the modern and chamber sides that Costa cut during the 50s! Side one features work by the Clark Terry quartet – with Terry on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Take Twelve
Jazzland, 1962. Very Good+
A rare non-Blue Note outing from Lee Morgan – and a record that's sometimes mistaken as a large group effort because of the "twelve" in the title, but which is a tight small group set that's equally cooking as some of Lee's better known records! As with the best mid 60s Blue Note ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Message
Prestige, 1965. Very Good
A key album in the career of Richard Groove Holmes – his first session ever for Prestige Records, and the one that yielded the monster crossover hit version of "Misty"! The sound here is much leaner and cleaner than Groove in his Pacific Jazz years – a tight trio approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Perspective
Blue Note, 1963. Near Mint-
A classic album that mixes trumpet and voices in a swirling soulful sound that worked very well for Byrd's career! Byrd's sparkling trumpet fronts a tight septet that includes Hank Mobley, Herbie Hancock, and Kenny Burrell – and which is backed by arrangements by Coleridge Perkinson and Duke ...

Blue Note, 1970. Good+ Gatefold
The title's no lie – because the album is one of the shining jewels of Lou Donaldson's legendary funk years for Blue Note – that second period when he returned to the label at the end of the 60s, and really helped redefine the sound of soul jazz at the time! The format here is very ... LP, Vinyl record album
