Pre-Atlantic work from Ornette Coleman – one of his first recorded statements in jazz – and one of his boldest! At some level, the complete Coleman sound isn't entirely in place here – as there's a bit of a trace of hardbop in the mix – not entirely, but just a bit. But at ...

Two of the best west coast boppers of the postwar years – back together again in a killer revival date cut by Contemporary Records!

Contemporary/OJC, 1957. Used ... $9.99
Red Norvo's dragged his vibes out into a field of wildflowers – and while we hate to think what that's done to the sound of his instrument (not to mention his hayfever), we can definitely say that the album's a groovy treat from the decade when Red was turning out some of his finest music ...

✨✧ Art PepperArt Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Art Pepper's classic recordings, in which he plays with a spare quartet backing by Miles Davis' rhythm section at the time – Paul Chambers, Red Garland, and Philly Joe Jones. An essential East meets West jazz recording, with Art at the top of his game, playing in a unique setting for ... (Jazz) read more CD

Contemporary, 1960. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice straight batch of tracks from Pepper – and a record that we like more than some of the more "classic" ones on Contemporary! The album's got quite a strange title – Smack Up, a very strange choice, given Pepper's well-known experience as a junkie – and features ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Art PepperThursday Night At The Village Vanguard Vol 1 ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1977. Used ... $5.99
A rather late recording for Pepper, but a great one played with some fierceness that you might not expect from the date of the recording. It helps that he's accompanied by a remarkable rhythm section of George Cables, George Mraz and Elvin Jones, all seasoned vets by this point, and playing with ... (Jazz) read more CD

Andre PrevinPal Joey ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $0.99
Surprisingly nice stuff – especially considering that the album was one in a string of Previn piano sessions for Contemporary – all based around Broadway themes as part of the success of his My Fair Lady date with Shelly Manne! This set still features Manne on drums – and Red ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Andre Previn & Russ FreemanDouble Play! ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $19.99
A goofy title and cover – but a really unique session of two-piano jazz, recorded with Russ Freeman and Andre Previn on the keys, plus only the drums of Shelly Manne to provide additional support! The sound is really great – and Previn's especially wonderful here, really stretching out ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny RollinsWay Out West ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic set that brings the east coast tenor of Sonny Rollins into contact with a west coast rhythm section of Ray Brown and Shelly Manne! Despite Rollins' silly look on the cover, and the album's overall "western" theme, the session's a brilliant one – right up there with Sonny's ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Early mono yellow label pressing with deep groove – with black printing on back cover, and white bar at bottom of front. Vinyl has a very short click in one spot, but is great overall. Cover has some slight edgewear, but is also very nice.)

Contemporary, 1953. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of the earliest sets issued under the name of the Lighthouse All-Stars – that hip assemblage of west coast players headed by bassist Howard Rumsey – hardly a household name on his own, but well-remembered for all the great work done at this famous club! The lineup is a who's who of ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary, 1953. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Great early work from Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse group – working here at a level that's almost more freewheeling than on some of their later Contemporary albums! The format's still very much in place here – a host of key All Stars who include Milt Bernhart on trombone, Russ Freeman on ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Sheesh, Howard Rumsey sure knew how to stick his name on a lot of records! (He must have been trying to give Norman Granz and Leonard Feather a run for their money!)

Tremendous work from Howard Rumsey's early Lighthouse group – and a great example of why they were such a great act at the time! The "solo spotlight" in the title is extremely apt here – as each of the album's tracks features a standout performance by group members who emerge ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Although it's easy to get mixed up with all the Leroy Vinnegar albums that have "walk" in the title, this one's a great soul jazz session from the early 60s – one that nicely draws upon an LA scene that includes Roy Ayers, Freddie Hill, Teddy Edwards, Mike Melvoin, and Ron Jefferson ...

Arguably one of the best 50s jazz sessions on west coast powerhouse label Contemporary – superbly recorded, and done in a format that really breaks from the format of a lot of LA jazz at the time!
