✨✧ George BraithExtension ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterpiece from George Braith – one of the most unique sax players of the 60s! The album's a Blue Note classic in the Larry Young vein – with lots of free spiralling modal lines, and heavenly solos on organ, guitar, and reeds – the former of which are played by Billy Gardner and Grant Green. Braith's playing is incredible – slightly exotic, but also quite soulful – in a vein that recalls Yusef Lateef and Roland Kirk, but which also has a strong voice of its own. Braith plays tenor, soprano, and alto sax on the set – and the album is filled with groovy modal tracks like "Nut City", "Sweetville", and "Extension". Very very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

George RussellComplete Bluebird Recordings (Jazz Workshop/Hal McKusick Jazz Workshop) ... CD
RCA/Lonehill (Spain), 1956. Used ... $14.99
Some great 50s work from modernist George Russell – an expanded version of his work for the RCA label at the time! The first 12 tracks, plus 2 alternates, are from the Jazz Workshop album issued under Russell's name for RCA – A nice little set that's not as arch-modern as some of his later work, with strong playing in kind of that east coast chamber jazz mode that you'd find in some of the other RCA sides of the time. Players include Art Farmer, Hal McKusick, Bill Evans, Barry Galbraith, and Joe Harris – and the tracks are mostly originals, written with slight touches of whimsy, but less of the indulgence on that front as you'd hear on west coast material. Titles include "Witch Hunt", "The Sad Sargeant", "Ballad Of Hix Blewitt", "Knights of The Steamtable", "Jack's Blues", and "Night Sound". Added to these 14 tracks are an additional 4 from the Hal McKusick Jazz Workshop album on RCA – all tunes penned by Russell, and played by a group that's essentially the same as those on Russell's album, with a few slight personnel shifts. Titles include "Lydian Lullaby", "Miss Clara", and "The Day John Brown Was Hanged". CD

George RussellJazz Workshop ... CD
RCA/Koch, 1956. Used ... $9.99
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe! Russell's trying out some of his new tonal ideas here – and has a group that's very well-chosen for the project – with Art Farmer on trumpet, Hal McKusick on alto, Bill Evans on piano, and Barry Galbraith on guitar – all players with just the right sort of color in their tone, able to illustrate George's ideas but still bring a bit of personality to the mix as well. Titles are mostly originals, written with slight touches of whimsy, but less of the indulgence on that front as you'd hear on west coast material – and tracks include "Witch Hunt", "The Sad Sargeant", "Ballad Of Hix Blewitt", "Knights of The Steamtable", "Jack's Blues", and "Night Sound".

Michael ColdinSilhouettes In Jazz ... LP
Everest, 1959. Very Good ... $19.99
A very cool set from the combo of Michael Coldin – a player we only know from this record, and one who has a great way of mixing harpsichord with some unusual instruments for jazz! The record's got Coldin hitting the plucked keys – acoustic, not electric, as on later 60s records – and working with a great group of like-minded quirky musicians – including Jerome Richardson on flute, Urbie Green on trombone, Gloria Agostini on harp, George Shaw on bass, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Herbie Lovelle on drums. Given the lineup, there's a vibe to the record that's almost like some RCA or Bethlehem experiments from the mid 50s – and the group bring some fresh energy to tunes that include "Caravan", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Mack The Knife", "A Foggy Day", "My Reverie", and "Diga Diga Doo".

Murder Inc (Irving Joseph)Murder Inc+ ... LP
Time, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A very cool little record – one that imagines itself as a crime jazz soundtrack for a movie that doesn't exist – yet manages to come across with all the best styles of the time, with a quality to rival the best from Henry Mancini, Pete Rugolo, and Elmer Bernstein! Like famous scores by all of those artists, the work here features a strong array of jazz musicians and studio giants, coming together in tight formation to create these cuts that have a very vivid feel overall – music that's instantly able to paint these brilliant little pictures in sound, with dynamic energy that comes not just from the group as a whole,b ut also from strong breakout solo moments! The set includes vibes from Eddie Costa, trumpet from Lou Mucci, bass from George Duvivier, guitars from Barry Galbraith and Bucky Pizzarelli, percussion from Phil Kraus, and a whole lot of great reeds from Phil Bodner – on a set of original titles that include "State's Evidence", "Third Degree", "We The Jury", "Prison Break", "Stool Pigeon", and "Bad Day In Brooklyn" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hal McKusickCross Section Saxes ... LP
Decca, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Hal McKusick – one of the greatest modern sax talents of the 50s, heard here in a set of impeccably-arranged tunes! McKusick's work on the album rivals that of better-known 50s modernists like Jimmy Guiffre and Lee Konitz – both of whom are clearly an influence on Hal's sound for the set, especially Guiffre, who's represented here by three different arrangements of tunes, all of which show his marked talent for making multiple horns come together magically! Other arrangers featured are Ernie Wilkins and George Russell – both of whom bring in different flavors to the session, but still allow McKusick to work in a tightly-arranged horn format, along with players that include Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Frank Socolow, Barry Galbraith, and Paul Chambers. Titles include "Whisper Not", "It Never Entered My Mind", "Stratusphunk", "Yesterdays", "The End Of A Love Affair", "Sing Song", and "La Rue". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hal McKusickJazz Workshop ... LP
RCA, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Hal McKusick – one of those mid 50s modernists who offered up such hope for new ideas at the time, and who seemed to all but disappear by the middle of the next decade! This album's one of Hal's finest – an optimistically crafted batch of tunes written by many of the 50s best modernists: Gil Evans, Jimmy Giuffre, George Russell, and others – played by a group that includes Art Farmer, Barry Galbraith, Jimmy Cleveland, and Milt Hinton. The approach is east coast chamber jazz – a refreshing change from the west coast version, made all the better by McKusick's crisp tone and precise blowing. Titles include "Alto Cumulus", "Tommy Hawk", "Lydian Lullaby", "One Score & Eight Horns Ago", "Jambangle", and "Just Leave It Alone". LP, Vinyl record album
