Miles Davis/Dizzy Gillespie/Fats NavarroTrumpet Giants ... LP
New Jazz/Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $33.99
An odd collection for the Prestige family of labels, featuring groups led by two artists who aren't normally associated with the label. The first four numbers are by Fats Navarro, recording alongside Don Lanphere, Al Haig, Tommy Potter and Max Roach: "Stop", "Go", "Infatuation" and "Wailing Wall". Miles leads a great bop group with Jackie McLean, Sonny Rollins, Walter Bishop, Tommy Potter and Art Blakey on "My Old Flame" and "Conception", and Diz rounds out the set in a sextet that features Jimmy Heath, Jimmy Oliver, Milt Jackson, Percy Heath and Joe Harris on "Thinking Of You", "Too Much Weight", "She's Gone Again" amd "Nice Work If You Can Get It".

Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, & Harry EdisonTour De Force – The Trumpets Of Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, & Harry Edison ... LP
Verve, 1955. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A triple-trumpet session with a really wonderful sound – the kind of all-star date that only a label like Verve could have done so well! As you'll guess from the title, the record's a showcase for the three trumpeters in the lead – and the tracks are long, with plenty of space for each player to state their case in a very distinct solo voice. Rhythm is by a familiar quartet that features Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums – and the use of guitar in a set like this creates an especially ringing tone at the bottom, one that often seems echoed by the brighter notes of the trumpet over the top. The album's got a great extended "Ballad Medley", plus long takes on "Tour De Force" and "Steeplechase". LP, Vinyl record album

Gil Fuller with Dizzy GillespieGil Fuller & The Monterey Jazz Festival Orchestra featuring Dizzy Gillespie ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Blue Note, 1965. Used ... $5.99
One of Dizzy Gillespie's hippest big band sessions ever – and one of the few dates as a leader from arranger Gil Fuller! Fuller will always be best-remembered as the man who composed some of Dizzy Gillespie's best known tunes from the bop era – like "Manteca", "One Bass Hit", and "Things To Come" – but on this album from 1965, he's reunited with Dizzy for a large group set of tracks that feature Diz as the main soloist – at a level that really shows the growth of both men at the time! Fuller's charts are large and full, but with a sense of space that's really amazing – almost like some of the soundtrack work Dizzy had done for The Cool World – with a mix of soulful and modern moments that's really wonderful. The group's kind of a mix of hip LA players – with Phil Moore Jr on piano, Dennis Budimir on guitar, and Jimmy Bond on bass – plus a larger set of horn players backing Dizzy up. Titles include a number of great originals – such as "Be's That Way", "Big Sur", "Things Are Here", "Man From Monterey", and "Angel City". CD

Dizzy GillespieBahiana ... LP
Pablo, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
A beautifully mellow set of funky grooves, played by Diz with a west coast group that includes Roger Glenn on flute, Mickey Roker on drums, and Michael Howell on guitars – very similar to Dizzy's excellent Portrait Of Jenny album on Perception. The "Bahia" reference is quite pointed, as these cuts have a nice Braziliany groove, in a way that other west coast jazz groups were exploring at the time. The original release was a double album, and this 8 track set features some excellent long groovers like "Samba", "In The Land Of The Living Dead", "Olinga", "Pele", and "The Truth". Extremely haunting, and similar to Diz's "Portrait Of Jenny" LP. LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieCornucopia ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
A pretty groovy record – very different than lots of Dizzy's other work! The set has Dizzy as the main soloist in front of large arrangements by Don Sebesky – sweeping and soulful, in a real CTI style, especially when the label was coming out through A&M. Tunes are mostly a selection of pop tracks, but they're completely transformed by Sebesky – and played with some occasional funky touches that really make the album sound great. Dizzy's got a mute on for most of the solos, and is blowing in a lightly playful mode that almost creates an MPS easy feel. Titles include "Both Sides Now", "The Windmills Of Your Mind", "Lorraine", "Yesterday's Dream", "Ann Wonderful One", and "Tango-Rine". LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieDizzy Gillespie & The Mitchell Ruff Duo ... LP
Mainstream, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
Wild – but pretty darn wonderful stuff! Dizzy's recording here in one of his sparest settings ever – blowing trumpet with accompaniment from the duo of Willie Ruff, bass and French horn, and Dwike Mitchell, piano – working in a mode that's really cool, really stripped down, and which has an amazingly understated tone! Given that the album has two horns, bass, and piano – and none of those all at the same time, with no other drums or instrumentation – the format is really amazing. Add to that the fact that the tracks are often quite long, and you get a sweet and introspective side of Diz (and the Mitchell Ruff Duo) that you might not have otherwise heard! Titles include "Con Alma", "Blues People", "Bella Bella", and "Dartmouth Duet". LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieDizzy Gillespie Quartet – At Onkel PO's Carnegie Hall Hamburg 1978 ... CD
Jazz Line (Germany), 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
The only thing better than small combo work from Dizzy Gillespie is live small combo work from Dizzy Gillespie – as the legendary trumpeter really takes off in a concert setting! This excellent German set from the late 70s is a great case in point – as the tracks are long and flowing, and really show the imaginative solo style that Dizzy can have when let loose in such a format – served up here at a level that's even groovier than some of his American live dates of the same time! The group gets nice and funky at times – with guitar from Rodney Jones as both a key rhythmic and melodic element, and bass from Benjamin brown, who seems to be playing electric – all given tight, sharp work on drums from Mickey Roker. Leo Wright joins the group on alto for four of the album's 13 tracks – and titles include "Unicorn", "Sunshine", "Brother K", "Blues", "Olinga", "The Land Of Milk & Honey", and the massively funky "Diddy Wa Diddy".

Dizzy GillespieDizzy Gillespie's Big 4 ... LP
Pablo, 1974. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Dizzy's Big 4 here are a quartet of players that includes Ray Brown on bass, Joe Pass on guitar, and Mickey Roker on drums – all of whom work with Dizzy in a lightly skipping groove that's a nice contrast to some of his other 70s work! The style certainly has some of the spacious qualities that Dizzy was bringing to his records of the 70s – that post-bop "little says more than a lot" style that we really love – but the overall mode is somewhat gentler too, and with just a guitar to emphasize some of the rhythms of the tune, there's some airiness to the numbers that's really compelling. Dizzy's trumpet is often muted, and titles include "Birk's Works", "Tenga", "Hurry Home", "Russian Lullaby", and "September Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieEbullient Mr Gillespie ... LP
Verve, 1959. Very Good ... $14.99
Ahhh . . . Diz in the 50s. What a great thing! He's post bop, post cubop, but still has all the best elements of those eras – wrapped up into a more complicated Latin-tinged style that's filled with warmth, humor, and some pretty compelling grooves. This set is one of Diz's best from the time – and it's got some tracks that are real classics in his book, like "Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac", "Ungawa", "Lorraine", and "Constantinople". The group's small and hip – with Junior Mance on piano, Les Spann on flute and guitar, Sam Jones on bass, Lex Humphries on drums, and Chano Pozo on conga. LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieKusch ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1955/1976. Used ... $3.99
Not much on notes, but some plenty great tunes – music so good we can forgive the CD for it's lack of clear details and cheap-looking cover! The best tracks here are long, drawn out, and have that modern Latin-inflected groove that Dizzy first started heavily on his 60s recordings for Philips, Limelight, and Impulse – tunes that roll out with an open-ended feeling based upon strongly pulsating rhythms, which are then topped by freely exploratory solos by Diz! The dates on the package list the material as being recorded in 1955 and 1976 – but the mid 70s numbers dominate, and are really the reason to seek out the album. Players on these numbers include Rodney Jones on guitar, Benjamin Brown on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – on tracks that include "Kusch", "Be Bop", "Swing Low Sweet Cadillac", and "Brother K". The other 1955 numbers are more traditionally bop oriented – and include "Emanon", "Two Bass Hit", "Minor Walk", and "Things To Come". CD

Dizzy GillespieNew Wave ... LP
Philips, 1962. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A lost bossa jazz classic from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded at a time when Lalo Schifrin was working in his combo! The record's got a cool, laidback kind of groove – one that's miles away from Gillespie's earlier bop work, and which shows him opening up his rhythmic conception strongly in the 60s. Rhythms are percolated by the piano of Schifrin, guitar of Bola Sete, bass of Chris White, and some well-chosen added percussion work – and the overall groove is one of the best American takes on the bossa jazz sound of the time, delivered with wonderful horn work from Dizzy on trumpet, Leo Wright on flute and alto, and Charlie Ventura on tenor! Even familiar tunes are transformed by the sound – and titles include "In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town", "Careless Love", "Taboo", "One Note Samba", "Pergunte Ao Joao", and "Chega de Saudade".

Dizzy GillespieReal Thing ... LP
Perception, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stunning funk from the great Dizzy Gillespie – light years away from his early bop recordings! The album's a slammin batch of 70s instrumentals – Dizzy's trumpet firmly in the lead over electric backings that have more than a bit of funk in them. The bass is the main driving factor of the tunes – played either by Phil Upchurch or Chuck Rainey – and the tracks bounce along with a fierce and righteous groove that also includes hard riffing on guitar and some sweet piano lines. Players include Mike Longo, James Moody, and Bernard Purdie – and tracks include "N'Bani", "Matrix", "Soul Kiss", "Ding A Ling", and "Alligator". Great stuff, and a crucial album in Dizzy's lost career! Damn funky, too. LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy, 1951. Used ... $2.99
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 Confessin", and "Lady Be Good". CD

Philips, 1963. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Beautiful work from one of Dizzy's greatest periods – and a record not to pass up! The set features Diz playing 5 old bop tunes, and 4 new tracks from the pen of the great Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "This Lovely Afternoon", "Good Bait", and "Dizzy Atmosphere". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic bit of late 60's funk, and a surprisingly slammin' record from Dizzy! The album's got tight, hard, choppy funk arrangements from Ed Bland – who went onto to do some great work at the Perception label – and the group features James Moody blowing hard lean funky solos right next to Diz, in the way that he'd do on some of his own funk work from the same time. The record is wonderful all the way through – with a mad mad full-on funk sound that will make your jaw drop! Titles include "Blue Chuchifrito", "Chicken Giblets", "Rutabega Pie", "The Fly Fox", "Stomped & Wasted" and "Casbah Melon".

A late performance from Dizzy Gillespie, but a great one too – and just the kind of record that shows he was always a constantly creative player! At a point when many others would have been content to just lay back and rehash the same old lines, Dizzy clocked out a masterpiece like this – music originally recorded (but not used) for a film, put together in a wonderfully sophisticated jazz soundtrack mode! There's an evocative quality to the record that takes us back to older European jazz film scores of the 50s and 60s – and the instrumentation mixes small group performances with some augmented string passages too. Other players include Danilo Perez on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Grady Tate on drums – and titles include "San Sebastian", "Magic Summer", "Isthmus", "Lisbon", "Burma", and "Bill's Song". CD

A real gem from the height of Dizzy's big band years at Verve – a stunning little set that features a hip larger group that includes Joe Gordon, Melba Liston, Rod Leavitt, Phil Woods, Ernie Wilkins, and Billy Mitchell. The groove here is well-orchestrated, well-placed soul – with less of the playful bop touches of earlier sides, and more of a hiply modern style that shows Dizzy stretching out in larger shades of color and tone. And while the "World Statesmen" cover and image might make you wary of some gimmick on the set, the album's key Gillespie through and through – a deft turn away from the styles of the bop years, into a world of sound that would support his career strongly for years to come! Titles include "Tour De Force", "Doodlin", "Night In Tunisia", "The Champ", "My Reverie", and "Dizzy's Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Later live work from Dizzy Gillespie – working in London here with a very hip ensemble! We're not entirely sure of the date, but given the skinny ties on a few of the players, we're guessing it's from that 80s stretch when Dizzy was still going strong – working in a great mix of Latin and bop modes that's always kept fresh through his creative energies! Slide Hampton's on trombone – and also wrote most of the arrangements – and other players include Arturo Sandoval on trumpet, Paquito D'Rivera on reeds, James Moody on sax and flute, Airto on percussion, and Danilo Perez on vocals – and Flora Purim also joins the group on vocals for a few numbers. Titles include "Kush", "Tanga", "Dizzy Shells", "Night In Tunisia", "Tin Tin Deo", "Seresta", and "Samba For Carmen". CD

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 than the usual sort of Verve tracks – almost a mini-jam session with the three horn giants in the lead. Rhythm is from the trio of Ray Bryant on piano, Tommy Bryant on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums – but the real stars are the horn players – not just Diz, who cuts some of his hippest lines of the late 50s here, but also Rollins and Stitt, who seem to get a bit more care in recording than they did over at Prestige earlier in the decade.

Although we've always felt that some of the "all star" sets on Verve could sometimes be a bit too "easy", we're always very big fans of the few that feature strong performances from Dizzy Gillespie – as they have a tight bop groove that lets all the musicians find their right place, and solo in wonderful interplay with each other! Here, Dizz and Sonny Stitt provide the core of a group that also includes Stan Getz on tenor – and the three of them are given four nice long tracks to work through in a relaxed seamless fashion – moving openly and wonderfully over tunes that include "Dark Eyes", "We", and "Be Bop".

A classic meeting of two giants from the early years of bop – altoist Charlie Parker and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie – brought together here in a session that Norman Granz would later list as one of the truest realizations of his vision for recording jazz music! Parker's sharp lines are a great contrast to the robust horn work of Diz – and the players work here with a rhythm section that features Thelonious Monk on piano, Curley Russell on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums.

A striking little record – and the kind that both players could only have made with the new freedoms in jazz recording of the 70s! Although Peterson and Gillespie had played together before on earlier Verve albums, the setting was never like this – because the album's only a duet between trumpet and piano, with no other instrumentation at all – yet the sound is amazing swinging! Peterson works almost as a one man rhythm section here – bouncing the tunes with plenty of hard inflections on his left hand – and setting up a swing that Dizzy blows over with warmly muted tones. There's a quality here that's personal – but not in that "oh look at us, we're such big stars" sort of way – and titles include "Mozambique", "Caravan", "Dizzy Atmosphere", "Blues For Bird", and "Con Alma" – always a treat to hear in a setting like this!

A legendary concert – recorded at Massey Hall in Toronto, with a previously-unmatched quintet of superstar bop players – Charlie Parker on alto, Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Bud Powell on piano, Charles Mingus on bass, and Max Roach on drums – all coming together in a performance that's a bit rough at times, but which more than makes up for that roughness in its own sense of history! This single LP features the quintet performances from the date (others featured the trio of Powell, Mingus, and Roach) – on titles that include "Perdido", "Salt Peanuts", "All The Things You Are", "Wee", and "Hot House".

A great cubop revival date – one that has Mongo Santamaria working with the great Dizzy Gillespie – all really opening up on some long live tracks that go quite a bit farther than bop/Latin sets like this from the late 40s! The tracks are all nicely extended, with lots of room for solos – and other players include Toots Thielemans on harmonica, Doug Harris on tenor and flute, and Allen Hoist on alto flute and baritone – all great players who really make a lot out of the energy set down by Mongo. Titles include "Summertime", "Afro Blue", "Virtue", and "Mambo Mongo". CD

A nice little collection of some of Dizzy Gillespie's best bop material for Savoy – tunes that were originally recorded as 78rpm singles – then issued together on this classic album of all-star players! The tunes are short, catchy, and often very grooving – that mix of whimsy and modernism that made Dizzy stand out from the start – handled by a few different groups of players, with musicians who include Milt Jackson on vibes, John Coltrane on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, and Percy Heath on bass. Titles include "Tin Tin Deo", "Star Dust", "The Bluest Blues", "The Champ", "Birk's Works", "Caravan", "Time On My Hands", and "Ooh Shoo Be Doo Bee". CD

There's a wonderful 10 minute version of "Chega De Saudade", done as "No More Blues" to start it out, and it's got a great loping Latin vibe, in the manner of Dizzy's best sides from the 60s. Lalo's on piano, and the great Leo Wright is on flute and alto, with Tzigane Elek Bacsik on guitar, Chris White on bass, Ruby Collins on drums and Pepitoo Riestria on percussion. Other nice ones include "Long Long Summer", "Desafinado", and "Pau De Arara". A great album, and one not to pass up! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieLive At The Village Vanguard Featuring Chick Corea & Elvin Jones (2CD set) (aka Jazz For a Sunday Afternoon) ... CD
Blue Note, 1967. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing jam session set – of the sort that was rarely issued in the 60s, and hardly ever on labels like Solid State Records! The album features a small group of all-star players recorded live at the Village Vanguard in 1967 – all blowing on long, unstructured tunes that offer amazing solo space, and the kind of spontaneity that's rarely captured so well in a live jazz setting. Players include Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone sax, Chick Corea on piano, Ray Nance on violin, Richard Davis on bass, and either Elvin Jones or Mel Lewis on drums – and the unusual mix of players really comes together beautifully for the record, in a rare spirit that recalls the best of the Norman Granz JATP sessions, but with a hipper sort of 60s feel. Titles include "Birk's Works", "Blues For Max", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "Lullaby At The Leaves" – all presented in very long versions, 2 of which are longer here than ever before! The second disc in this series that captures the fire and spontaneity of the famous late 60s Sunday afternoon sessions at the Village Vanguard – recorded when that club was an important site for criss-crossing of styles and traditions, as you'll hear wonderfully in this set! The album features a sextet that includes Pepper Adams, Dizzy Gillespie, Chick Corea, Richard Davis, Mel Lewis, and Garnet Brown – playing in an easy, open format that has them really stretching out on 3 long tracks. The focus here is on the solo work of the players, but there's also a surprisingly great sense of cohesiveness and lyrical interplay as well. Titles include "Tour De Force", "On The Trail", and "Sweet Gorgia Brown" – 2 of which are here in tracks that have never been issued in this longer format! CD

Pablo, 1981. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great live date from Dizzy Gillespie – one that has a fair bit of speaking in between some of the tracks, as hinted at by the title – but a set that's most noteworthy for the fantastic sound of the group! The tracks are long, open, and stretched out in that best way that Dizzy brought to small group live recordings from the end of the 50s onward – and the sextet features some wonderful instrumentation from Milt Jackson on vibes, Ed Cherry on guitar, and James Moody on alto, tenor, and flute! The guitar and vibes make for some nice twists on familiar Gillespie numbers – and Jackson really gets a lot of room to step in and make the tunes his own. Plus, drummer George Hughes gets a bit funky at times, too – bringing an unexpected kick to the tunes in a great way, augmented by deft work from Michael Howell on bass. Tracks are mostly nice and long – and the set features versions of "Olinga", "Brother King", "Tanga", "Manteca", "SKJ", and "Con Alma". CD

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 sessions in which Diz played with one or the other player. The set's a beautiful batch of long tracks with lots of blowing room, and a deep soulful hardbop groove that you don't always hear on Verve. The rhythm section for all groups is comprised of Ray Bryant, Tommy Bryant, and Charlie Persip – who are part of the reason for the magnanimous groove of the set – and titles include "After Hours", "Con Alma", "Haute Mon", "Sumphin", "Weatleigh Hall", "I Know That You Know", and "The Eternal Triangle".

A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz! The record takes off from the soulful/modal mood of the early 60s groups with Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and features a young Mike Longo crafting some fantastic lines on piano, stretched out over tight rhythms on electric bass and drums, with Dizzy soloing on trumpet, and James Moody adding in washes of color and emotion on alto, tenor, and flute. The best tracks are long groovers that really show the group stretching out – especially on the album's 16 minute reading of Dizzy's classic "Kush", the title track "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", and a great version of "Mas Que Nada"!

A great little jam session from Verve – done in a style that's looser and freer than some of the JATP albums, and with a smaller group overall! Players include Stan Getz, Paul Gonsalves, and Coleman Hawkins on tenor, Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, and Wynton Kelly on piano – plus bass by Wendell and drums from JC Heard. There's a rougher, more spontaneous quality here than even on some of the other Norman Granz jam session records – a feel that's almost more "real" overall, as if you were catching the players all working together in a club. Each side features 2 long tracks – one upbeat and one mellow – and the tenor interplay alone is worth the price of the record! Titles include long takes on "Dizzy Atmosphere" and "The Way You Look Tonight" – plus 2 additional ballad medleys! LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
A later and lesser-known set from Dizzy Gillespie – and a real departure both from his bop of the 40s and his funk of the 70s! The album's got Dizzy working in a more modern soul-influenced setting – blowing over larger electric-tinged backings arranged by Kenny Kirkland, Marcus Miller, and Barry Eastmond – almost in a format that's a bit like some of Freddie Hubbard's R&B-styled albums of the time. Gillespie's always up for the challenges of any sort of session, and more than holds his own in the format – but the overall credit for the groove is less focused on his solo work, than it is the smoothly soulful style of the backings. The album includes a great cover of Leroy Hutson's "Closer To The Source" – complete with a sweet female lead vocal – plus other jazz versions of R&B material, like "It's Time For Love", "You're Number 1 In My Book", and "Textures".

Philips, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant little soundtrack from Dizzy Gillespie – composed by Mal Waldron, and played by Diz with a sound and sensitivity that few of his other 60s albums can match! The feel here is quite bold and righteous – a perfect accompaniment for the documentary-like black and white images of Shirley Clarke's film – set in Harlem, and mostly recorded on location in the early 60s! Dizzy's tone is wonderful – bracing one minute, blue-toned the next – and the rest of the group is wonderful too – with James Moody on tenor and flute, Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums. There's a richly expressive feel to the music that makes the set hold up fantastically both as a soundtrack and as a jazz album – and titles include "The Pusher", "Duke's Fantasy", "Coney Island", "Bonnie's Blues", "Duke's Awakening", "Coolie", and "Enter Priest".

Players include Machito, Charlie Parker, Diz, Mario Bauza, Eddie Bert, Flip Phillips, Chano Pozo, and Jos Mangual – and the quality of the work unifies the sessions wonderfully, even though they were recorded separately over a 5 year period.

Verve, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best albums ever in Verve's classic set of recordings from the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival – a set that captures the Dizzy Gillespie group of the decade in top live formation! The ensemble here is plenty hip – with a young Lee Morgan joining Dizzy on trumpet, and a host of other great players who include Melba Liston and Al Grey on trombones, Benny Golson and Billy Mitchell on saxes, and rhythm from the trio of Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul West on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums! Although big, the band often had the sharper groove of a small combo – and even when hitting some older moments from Gillespie's earlier years, they still kept a modern edge in their approach – thanks to arrangements by AK Salim, Tadd Dameron, Benny Golson, Quincy Jones, and Dizzy himself. Titles include "School Days", "I Remember Clifford", "Manteca", "Dizzy's Blues", "Cool Breeze", and "Doodlin". CD also features a full bonus side from another album – Dizzy Gillespie with Mary Lou Williams At Newport – featuring Mary Lou Williams with the same group, on titles that include the extended "Zodiac Suite", plus "Carioca" and "Night In Tunisia".

Nothing dizzy at all here – as the record's got a confident, forward-moving direction right from the start – a hard-burning saxophone trio, in a manner that you'd usually be used to hearing from a tenor – but featuring the bold alto of Jukka Perko on the lead! Perko works with Antti Lotjonen on bass and Teppo Makynen on drums – both players who have the same powerful approach as the leader, and who nicely balance between freedom and structure – a bit in the manner of the Sonny Rollins trio work at the end of the 50s – but more freewheeling, and really with its own sense of energy! A number of tracks are old jazz standards from the Dizzy Gillespie songbook, but completely transformed by the presentation – and titles include "Con Alma", "Woody N You", "One Bass Hit", "Tin Tin Deo", "Dizzy's Business", "Night In Tunisia", and "Cubano Be Cubano Bop".

This set moves past the modernism of some of Duke's other sessions at the time, and offers a more straight-ahead set in true "jazz party" tradition. Jimmy Rushing sings vocals on a few tracks, and Duke's band features Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonzalves, Jimmy Woode, and a guest appearance by Dizzy Gillespie.

Like a lot of the jazz recordings on Perception at the time (by the likes of Dizzy Gillespie and Shirley Horn), this set's got an edge you wouldn't expect – with some very hip arrangements overall that really sound great – performed on the first album by a quartet that includes George Coleman on tenor and Herman Foster on piano, and on the second album by a group with Ken Ascher on keyboards and Jimmy Heath on tenor and flute. The set features interpretations of material that range from brilliant, to daring but off-track – and titles include "Sunday Sun", "Feelin' Groovy", "I've Got To Be Me", "Didn't We", "Summer Wind", and "Betcha By Golly Wow".

A great illustration of the genius of Carmen McRae in the 70s – a record that easily shows why Carmen was hipper than most of her contemporaries from two decades before! The set has the vocalist somehow managing to still stick in a straight jazz style, without going for cheaper soul routines – yet also opening up with more of a sense of mature presence that showed the sophistication of the times – a killer blend that really makes the album a gem from these 70s years! The live setting features Carmen working through a mixture of new and old material in some really unique variations – working with a small group that includes Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet and Marshall Otwell on keyboards, carving out some space with a really wonderfully confident feel. Numbers include "No More Blues", "Only Women Bleed", "A Beautiful Friendship", "Star Eyes", "Dindi", "Never Let Me Go", "On A Clear Day", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "I'm Always Drunk In San Francisco".

That's the Modern Jazz Sextet – not the Modern Jazz Quartet – although the group definitely borrows a bit of energy from the MJQ, and some personnel too! The group was only put together for this date – and combines the subtle touches of MJQ members John Lewis on piano and Percy Heath on bass, with some harder-edged, hardbop-driven sounds from Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Sonny Stitt on alto, Skeeter Best on guitar, and Charlie Persip on drums! The set's got an open, easygoing feel – that loose Verve studio mode of the time – which stems from their jam session modes, but is a bit tighter overall – in ways that really help the players find their energy together in the tunes. Titles include 2 standards, in the usual Verve style – "Mean To Me" and a ballad medley of "Old Folks", "What's New" and "How Deep Is The Ocean" – plus 3 originals – "Blues For Bird", "Tour De Force", and "Dizzy Meets Sonny".

The album may well be worth it, just to hear Bird playing with a Hammond – but the whole thing's great, and titles include "Cool Blues", "Star Eyes", "Blue N Boogie", "Anthropology", "Night In Tunisia", and "Groovin High".

Blue Note/Universal, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $17.99 19.99
5 classic albums from Hammond organ giant Jimmy Smith – all packaged together in cool LP-styled sleeves! First up is The Champ – aka A New Sound A New Star Vol 2 – a savage bit of raw organ grooves from the late 50s. Jimmy's work on the keys is fierce, and filled with wild flourishes that you don't always hear in his later albums. The record includes a nice long version of Dizzy Gillespie's "The Champ", plus the cuts "Bayou", "Ready N Able", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Deep Purple", "Tuquoise", and "Bubbis". (Catalog number BLP 1514, in case you can't remember the cover.) House Party is one of the best hard-wailing all-star sessions that Jimmy did so well for Blue Note! The album features an amazing array of top-line players – like Tina Brooks, Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Lou Donaldson, Art Blakey, and Kenny Burrell – and they all play with Smith in differing combinations, all of which have an open-ended groove that sounds very nice, and very much like the kind of material that Smith would have laid down at some small club in the late 50s. Titles include "Blues After All", "Au Private", and "Lover Man". Plays Fats Waller is a Jimmy Smith Blue Note session dedicated to Fats Waller, one of the first jazz musicians to work out his skills on the organ! Jimmy's working with a tight trio that includes Quentin Warren on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums – and although Waller never wowed anybody on the instrument in the same way that Smith did, he did come up with a nice way of getting a good sound out of the instrument – one that Jimmy rightly acknowledges here, then takes to the next level! The album features familiar tunes from the Waller songbook, but the performance is definitely prime Jimmy Smith on Blue Note – a set with titles that include "Lulu's Back In Town", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Ain't Misbehavin", "I've Found A New Baby", "Ain't She Sweet", and "Squeeze Me". Last up are Volumes 1 and 2 of Live At The Club Baby Grand – both of which feature Jimmy Smith heard in the kind of setting that spawned him – playing live at Delaware's Club Baby Grand – just the sort of smoky little jazz room that initially fostered his talents! The liveness of the set brings a really nice edge to the album – a sound that's grittier than some of Jimmy Smith's studio work of the early Blue Note years – and which features him really stretching out on the Hammond, taking close to 10 minutes to run through each tune – and that's saying a lot, given that there's hardly any other soloists! The rest of the group features Thornel Schwartz on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums – and tracks include "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Where Or When", "Rosetta", "Caravan", "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing", "Get Happy", "It's All Right With Me", and "The Preacher".

Les SpannGemini ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by Les Spann – an extremely talented jazz player who worked a lot with Dizzy Gillespie in the 50s, and Quincy Jones in the 60s! Les plays both guitar and flute on the set – grooving soulfully in a mode that recalls the stylings of Frank Wess or Kenny Burrell (depending on the instrument), but which is handled here in an easily soulful mode that recalls the sound of Les Jazz Modes at times. Players include Julius Watkins, Tommy Flanagan, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes. LP, Vinyl record album

Cal TjaderSoul Sauce ... LP
Verve, 1964. Very Good ... $11.99
Arguably THE classic Cal Tjader album of the 60s – a landmark album that crossed over equally into Latin, jazz, and mainstream audiences – and a stone cooker that's filled with smoking little grooves! The set's probably best known for its title track "Soul Sauce" – one of the biggest jazz hits of the 60s, and a catchy groover that was built around a riff from Dizzy Gillespie, but which also featured a groovier 60s sound, thanks to Cal's use of vibes. The whole album follows in similar format – and features great work by a core combo that includes Armando Pereza on congas, Lonnie Hewitt on piano, and Johnny Rae on drums. Titles include "Soul Sauce" – also known as "Guacha Guaro" – plus the tracks "Joao", "Leyete", "Maramoor", and a killer reading of "Afro Blue" that features guest appearances by Donald Byrd, Jimmy Heath, and Kenny Burrell.

Sarah VaughanEmbraceable You ... CD
Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... About September 26, 2018
Great 70s live work from Sarah Vaughan – material that easily stands alongside her best for the Pablo label at the same time, but which is far more obscure overall! The notes on the CD aren't much – and obviously help enforce the obscurity of the sessions – but we can say that all the performances are from live dates, and backing appears to be from a trio led by Bob James on acoustic piano on some tracks – and by a larger group with Hank Mobley and Dizzy Gillespie on a few more. Sarah's vocals are simple and straightforward, but have a confidence and poise that's totally great – qualities that have always almost made her a better singer live than in the studio. Titles include "Sassy's Blues", "Scat Blues", "Alfie", "Misty", "I Had A Ball", "The Theme", "Lover Man", "What Now My Love", and "Lover Come Back To Me". CD

T Bone WalkerVery Rare ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
A pretty darn cool record from the great T-Bone Walker – and one that has a lot more funk than blues! Some might complain that the older styles of some of the 50s bluesmen was ruined by 70s funk arrangers – but we can't agree, since the arrangements by David Matthews on this one sound soooo nice! Plus, T-Bone gets some help from hip players like Wilton Felder, Dizzy Gillespie, King Errison, Larry Carlton, and others – all of whom turn the record into a funky jazzy bluesy party! Tracks include "Striking On You, Baby", "The Last Clean Shirt", "The Come BAck", "hard Times", "Three Corn Patches", "I'm Still In Love With You", and "Person To Person". Lieber & Stoller produced, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Cedar WaltonSoul Cycle ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1969. Used ... $9.99
Very very groovy work from Cedar Walton – a near-lost set that's filled with styles not heard on some of his other albums! There's a lot of key elements that make this set great – such as Cedar's use of electric piano on a number of cuts, the presence of a guitarist in the group, use of Fender bass, and most importantly, some great work from James Moody on both tenor and flute – done in the soulful style that he was using at the time on his own albums, and his work with Dizzy Gillespie! The album's not a funk outing, but is extremely soulful all the way through – making good use of the electric elements without going over the top, and bringing Cedar's always-lyrical vision into a realm not heard previously. The rest of the group includes Rudy Stevenson on guitar, Reggie Workman on both electric and acoustic bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums – and titles include a great bossa version of Clare Fischer's "Pensativa", plus "Easy Walker", "Quiet Dawn", "Sundown Express", and "My Cherie Amour".

VariousBest Of Newport '57 ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
The full scope of Verve's massive recordings from the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival – served up in a 2CD set that includes many lesser-known numbers! The set certainly features some of the bigger name acts from Newport who've filled Verve's catalog over the years – Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, and others – but it also features some of the younger, hipper talents that hit the Newport stage that year – as well as some of the older trad players who were being re-exposed to a younger audience at the festival too! 2CD set features 24 tracks in all – some on CD for the first time – including "I Never Knew" by Mat Mathews, "Blue Lou" by Leon Sash, "Love Is Here To Stay" by Carmen McRae, "Blues For Louis" by Bobby Henderson, "Bourbon Street Parade" by George Lewis, "Between Me & Myself" by Toshiko Akioshi, "Love For Sale" by Gigi Gryce & Donald Byrd, "Nona's Blues" by Cecil Taylor, "There Will Never Be Another You" by Eddie Costa, "Lady Sings The Blues" by Billie Holiday, "S Wonderful" by Don Elliott, "I Got Rhythm" by Teddy Wilson, and "Boogie Woogie" by Jimmy Rushing.

✨✧ Mike LongoAwakening ... LP
Mainstream, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer electric piano work from the mighty Mike Longo – recorded at a time when he was definitely at the height of his powers! The album sports a rare Mainstream Records appearance from James Moody – who was a frequent partner of Longos on sessions at the time – particularly on some of Dizzy Gillespie's funky records – which bear a lot of similarity to the sharp-edged grooves on this one! The rhythm section is wonderfully tight, and a big part of the success of the set – as they keep things grooving with a slightly sharper edge than some of Longo's other records – thanks to bass from Ron Carter, drums from Mickey Roker, and even a bit of extra congas from Dizzy Gillespie, of all people! Other players include Moody on alto, tenor, and flute – plus Virgil Jones on trumpet and Curtis Fuller on trombone. Titles include "Just To Let You Know", "A Piece Of Resistance", "The Awakening", "Pass It", and "Bitchin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James MoodyFeelin' It Together ... LP
Muse, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
James Moody's definitely feelin it here – stepping back into a straighter hardbop mode after some funkier sets of the early 70s – really sounding great on tenor, alto, and flute – and working with a very hip quartet for the date! Kenny Barron's in the group on both electric and acoustic piano (plus a bit of harpsichord) – and given his previous work with Moody in Dizzy Gillespie's group, the players already have a well-established repoire that shows clearly on the record – at at times, Barron nicely sets the scene with some of his moodier 70s playing, which really suits James' flute work well. Bass is by Larry Ridley and drums are by Freddie Waits – two more key players in this very hip quartet – and titles include "Anthropolgy", "Dreams", "Autumn Leaves", 'Wave", "Morning Glory", and "Kriss Kross".

✨✧ Charlie ParkerSummit Meeting At Birdland ... LP
Columbia, 1951/1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very well-done collection of Charlie Parker performances from the legendary Birdland nightclub – originally presented on radio, but cleaned up here with a great sense of sound! The mighty Symphony Sid can be heard introducing a few tracks, but the main focus is on the music – with the kind of razor-sharp solos that always made Parker a knockout, especially during these key early 50s years – and accompaniment from musicians who include Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Bud Powell or John Lewis on piano, Kenny Clarke or Roy Haynes on drums, and even the surprising inclusion of organist Milt Buckner at one point! The album may well be worth it, just to hear Bird playing with a Hammond – but the whole thing's great, and titles include "Cool Blues", "Star Eyes", "Blue N Boogie", "Anthropology", "Night In Tunisia", and "Groovin High".

Blue Note, 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful tribute to Dizzy Gillespie – featuring songs penned by Diz, or played by him famously – presented by the fluid fingers of Gonzalo Rubalcaba, who takes Gillespie's inspiration into a whole new realm with his trio! Rubalcaba's got lots of sharp notes on hand – able to create these little corners of sound while still moving forward – spurred on by the deft drum work of Julio Barreto, who's work on the album is mighty nice too. Ron Carter's bass rounds out the set, and brings in some sensitive moments that really balance the record nicely – and titles include "Hot House", "Night In Tunisia", "I Remember Clifford", "Smooch", "Con Alma", and "Woody N You".

After the huge success of Cal's hit "Soul Sauce" for Verve, Fantasy put together this greatest hits compilation based around the tune "Wachi Wara", which Cal had recorded for them previously, and which had the same basic sound and style as "Soul Sauce" (which uses the chorus "wachi wara", lifted from a Dizzy Gillespie song!) The groove is followed nicely on the rest of the tracks, which have Cal playing in mostly a Latin vein – on titles like "Mamblues", "Cool", "Cubano Chant", "Doxie", and "Afro Blue".

✨✧ Bill BarronMotivation ... LP
Savoy, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album of modernist jazz! The record is one of a few that tenorist Bill Barron cut for Savoy Records during the early 60s, and it's work that we'd rank right up there with the best early 60s sessions by similar modernists like Eric Dolphy, Ken McIntyre, or Ornette Coleman. The album's a quartet session – with brother Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Al Hicks on drums – and it's probably the freest side that Bill Barron cut at the time. Barron and White were playing in Dizzy Gillespie's Latin-influenced group at the time, but they're playing here is groundbreaking – free, but swinging at the same time, deeply concerned with finding a modernist voice that would perfectly match Barron's unique tone and phrasing. The record is one of the most striking jazz sessions you'll find from the time – and it's a rare glimpse into a jazz underground that often gets lost in the pages of history, but which in our minds shone more brightly than some of the bigger, better-known avant gardeists of the time. Titles include "Cosmos", "Hold Back Tomorrow", "Blues For RA", and "Motivation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leo WrightSuddenly The Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
A record of incredible beauty from the great Leo Wright – and one that we'd never part with at all! Wright's one of those excellent players from the 60s who never really gets his due – largely because he was always hiding behind larger groups, and because he left the US in the decade for an extended stint in Europe. Still he cut some fantastic early work with both Dizzy Gillespie and Lalo Schifrin – and this album captures him right during the peak of that early period! The record features light lively backing from a quartet that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and some tracks have a beautifully groovy sound that's slightly bossa, slightly soul jazz. One of the best of these is Wright's great cover of "A Felicidade", but the record contains many other great moments, like "The Wiggler", "Tali", "Sassy Lady", and "Dionysis". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Duke EllingtonEllington Jazz Party In Stereo ... LP

Very nice work from one of Ellington's revival periods – when he was signed to Columbia in the late 50s, and recording some of the best work of his career. This set moves past the modernism of some of Duke's other sessions at the time, and offers a more straight-ahead set in true "jazz party" tradition. Jimmy Rushing sings vocals on a few tracks, and Duke's band features Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonzalves, Jimmy Woode, and a guest appearance by Dizzy Gillespie. Tracks include "Ready Go", "Red Garter", "Malletoba Spank", "UMMG", and "Tymperturbably Blue". LP, Vinyl record album
