European Jazz Trio featuring Art FarmerWindmills Of Your Mind ... CD
M&I/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2004. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99 About August 17, 2022
Really lovely work from the European Jazz Trio – a 1997 session recorded for the Japanese market, with some stunning guest work by Art Farmer on flugelhorn! The core trio features Marc Van Roon on piano, Frans Van Der Hoeven on bass, and Roy Dackus on drums, playing with the warm and lush feel of other of their sessions from the time – but it's Farmer's work on the record that really makes it shine – bringing a gliding soulfulness to the best tracks on the set. Titles include "Windmills Of Your Mind", "Nocturne #2", "Night Has A Thousand Eyes", "Snow Angels", and "A Minor Vamp". CD

Art FarmerBrass Shout ... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1959. Used ... $9.99
A great little album by this wonderful trumpeter – and one that we passed up for years because we were afraid of the words "brass" and "shout" in the title! If you're a Farmer fan, though, don't worry about this being some sort of snoozy "bold n brassy" session – because it's a much more subtle record, and features some excellent lead solos by Farmer, set amidst a larger group arranged wonderfully by Benny Golson! Golson brings a great sense of balance to the album – mixing some larger horn passages with soulfully snapping rhythms, all at a level that still allows plenty of space for Farmer to solo sweetly on trumpet. Other players on the record include Lee Morgan on trumpet and Curtis Fuller on trombone, Percy Heath on bass, and either Philly Joe Jones or Elvin Jones on drums – and titles include "Minor Vamp", "Nica's Dream", "Stella By Starlight", "Moanin", "April In Paris", and "Five Spot After Dark".

Art FarmerFrom Sweden With Love ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Never-issued music from a really legendary group – titled in a way that's similar to their famous 60s record for Atlantic Records – but a batch of live material recorded in Sweden with an equally sublime sort of feel! Art Farmer works here on flugelhorn alongside guitarist Jim Hall – a brief but important pairing in 60s modern jazz – especially when combined with the talents of Steve Swallow on bass and Pete LaRoca on drums – four artists who make for a really revolutionary quartet, as they explore the space of sound, and the space between the notes, in ways that still sound as revolutionary now as they did when recorded back in 1964! Titles include "Theme For Jobim", "Sometime Ago", "Waltz Hot", "Birk's Works", "I Love You", and "Bilbao Song". CD

Art FarmerModern Art ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $4.99
A seminal session as a leader by the young Art Farmer – recorded for United Artists, and a great set of tight lyrical tunes, played by Farmer in his sparkling style – in a group along with Benny Golson on tenor and Bill Evans on piano. Evans is a special treat here, as the 1958 session was recorded at a time when he was making a fair bit of appearances in various rhythm sections for horn players (like Miles Davis) – and although this role in Evans' career was a short one, it yielded some amazingly beautiful moments, as you'll hear on this album. Art's brother Addison plays bass, and Dave Bailey rounds out the group on drums. Tracks include "Cold Breeze", "Mox Nix", "Jubilation", and "Fair Weather". Originally recorded for United Artists, but reissued here by Blue Note. CD

Art FarmerSomething You Got ... LP
CTI, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99 11.99
A sweet funky album from Art Farmer– an artist we don't normally associate with 70s funk, but who does a really great job on this CTI session! Art's working here in the frontline with Yusef Lateef on reeds – another unlikely candidate for a record like this – and the pair get some strong backing from the band of Dave Matthews, who manages to provide just the right blend of tight arrangements and jazz funk, so that each player gets plenty of room to soar, but the whole album sticks in a nice smooth groove on the rhythms! Includes a soaring version of Chick Corea's "Spain", a slow funk take on Chris Kenner's "Something You Got", and the cuts "Flute Song", "Hombre Del Sol", "Sauhade", and "Sandu".

Art Farmer with Joe HendersonYama ... LP
CTI, 1979. Sealed Gatefold ... $14.99 19.99
An obscure late 70s set from CTI – and a near-lost chapter in the career of both artists in the title! Mike Mainieri arranged and produced the set – and the album's got a sweet, warm fusion approach that's very much like his own work – using a larger group of keyboards, vibes, bass, and percussion to set up backgrounds for solos by Farmer on flugelhorn and Joe Henderson on tenor! The mode's nicely colorful – different than early 70s CTI – and although the tracks have electric components, the main glow in the set seems to come from the horns. Players include Mainieri on vibes, Don Grolnick and Warren Bernhardt on keyboards, John Tropea on guitar, and Suzanne Ciani on electronics – and the approach is actually quite nice, and more sensitive than you'd think – with almost a soundtrack sort of feel overall. Titles include "Blue Montreux", "Lotus Blossom", "Dulzura", and "Stop". LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer/Benny GolsonMeet The Jazztet ... CD
Argo/Chess, 1960. Used ... $11.99
Landmark work by one of the greatest jazz outfits of the early 60s! Art Farmer and Benny Golson were both known as well-composed players during the 50s – strongly soulful, but often with a fine sense of arrangement that usually tended towards the lyrical side of things. With this group, though, they turned that approach towards a heavier sounding style of jazz – tightly stepping soul jazz, in the manner that was being explored at the time by Cannonball Adderley, Art Blakey, and others – presented by Farmer and Golson with a bit more groove and a wonderful kick at the bottom! This album's the first the group cut together – and apart from trumpet by Farmer and tenor by Golson, it also features Curtis Fuller on trombone, McCoy Tyner on piano, Addison Farmer (brother of Art) on bass, and Lex Humphries on drums. Includes the massive original recording of "Killer Joe", which went onto become one of the most recorded jazz standards ever, plus the tracks "Blues March", "Mox Nix", "Park Avenue Petite", and "I Remember Clifford". Perfect tone, perfect groove, and a perfect sound all the way through! CD

CAM/Ultra Vybe (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
What happens when Art Farmer and Phil Woods get together? Some pretty magical music – and a set that's quite different than most of their other 60s recordings! The session is a special date – put together by Clarke-Boland Band impresario Gigi Campi – with Farmer's flugelhorn and Woods' alto backed by a very cool French rhythm trio – which features Martial Solal on piano, Henri Texier on bass, and Daniel Humair on the drums! The group's a bit more modern than some of Art's usual combos, which makes for really surprising results, and often a much harder sound – one that matches the growing intensity of Woods during this part in his career. The tracks are long and openly grooving – and titles include "Blue Bossa", "Watch What Happens", "Blue Lights", "Sunrise Sunset", and "The Day After". CD

Argo, 1960. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful album of understated brilliance – one of Art Farmer's early shifts into the sublime, and an easily-blown batch of trumpet tracks that always takes our breath away! There's a sense of relaxed freedom here that's really tremendous – a difference from some of Farmer's more arranged, or more hard-blown moments of the 50s – and a real move into notes that are airier and more open – almost effortless at times, and played like nobody else! The group's a quartet – with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Tommy Williams on bass, and Albert Heath on drums – and the tracks are all in the four to five minute range, with Art crafting lyrically soulful lines over the top. Titles include "Who Cares", "Out Of The Past", "Younger Than Springtime", "That Ole Devil Called Love", and "Goodbye Old Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

CTI, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No crawl space here – as the sound is wide open, and surprisingly funky – a set that stands as one of Art Farmer's few great 70s outings for the CTI label! The album's got Art blowing with all the cool, compressed sound that he'd bring to a straighter album – but on longer tracks, with that open, flowing vibe you might hear on some of Freddie Hubbard's efforts for the label with less bite, and more flow overall! The set includes great work on flute from Jeremy Steig – plus guitar from Eric Gale, keyboards from Dave Grusin, and drums from Steve Gadd – and although the date of this one is late, the sound is in that prime 1972/1973 CTI mode! The album features four long tracks – and titles include "Crawl Space", "Siddhartha", "Petite Belle", and "Chanson". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art FarmerFarmer's Market ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An essential Art Farmer session from the mid 50s – and a magnificent batch of hardbop tracks that we'd rank with some of our favorite work on Blue Note! The group is incredibly strong – with Hank Mobley on tenor, Kenny Drew on piano, Addison Farmer on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – all coming together with a magical in-the-pocket groove that persists on nearly every track. Farmer's still at a formative stage here – and he's going for a much harder sound than usual, with an excellent tone and extremely well calculated solos throughout. Mobley's at his best from this period, and his playing puts this session more in the tightly executed Blue Note camp (ala some of the Horace Silver late 50s recordings), than it does the Prestige/New Jazz blowing session mode. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Ad-Dis-Un", "By Myself", "Farmer's Market", "With Prestige", and "Wailin' With Hank". CD

A great later album by Art Farmer – done with a driving Latin-tinged feel and a mellifluous groove that really shows the best side of Art's playing! The set was recorded while Art was living in Vienna, and the group features Jimmy Heath on soulful tenor, soprano sax, and flute, plus some great piano work by Fritz Pauer. Jimmy Woode's in the rhythm section, giving the set the light dancing feel he brought to his best work for MPS – and the album's got a lot of drive, especially on cuts like Heath's "The Gap Sealer" or "Cascavelo", another great original from the session. Other tracks include "The Day After", "Con Fab", and "Cocodrilo". This is another in the excellent crop of new MPS remastered editions – with the crispest sound quality possible on CD! CD

Farmer's work on flugelhorn seems even more inventive than ever – and titles include "Bloodcount", "Johnny Come Lately", "Isfahan", "Raincheck", and "Upper Manhattan Medical Group".

Gently graceful work from Art Farmer – and a wonderful example of the way he was expanding his talents in the 70s! The set's got a slow burning sensuality that seems to bring even more soul out of Farmer's work on flugelhorn than before – especially on the mellower cuts, which seem especially written as showcases for Art's masterful examples of understatement. But don't go thinking that the album's all ballads, because with a rhythm section that includes Cedar Walton, Sam Jones, and Billy Higgins, the tracks move along nicely, even when in a gentler mode. Titles include "The Summer Knows", "Ditty", "Manha Do Carnaval", and "When I Fall In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1960. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massively soulful, massively stepping – and one of the greatest albums ever from the team of Art Farmer and Benny Golson! The record sparkles with an amazing edge – rhythm totally in place from the trio of Cedar Walton, Tommy Williams, and Albert Heath – and horns braced over the top with a clean-blown sound that's as impeccable as it is soulful! Farmer, Golson, and trombonist Tom McIntosh update the soulfully arranged style that Golson first forged in the 50s – taking it into earthier territory with more of a soul jazz flair, but still allowing for the space and modern edge that made Golson's work noticeable from the start. The album features some great originals, and key takes on jazz standards from the time – an all-great run of titles that includes "The Cool One", "Blues On Down", "Hi Fly", "Bean Bag", and "Con Alma".

One of our favorite records ever from the legendary Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet – and a rare later date, recorded after their more famous albums for Chess! The lineup here is a bit unusual – in that a young Grachan Moncur III is in the combo on trombone – really adding some deep, soulful tones to the music – in ways that are very different than his famous Blue Note performances – but which really shape the sound of the music here wonderfully! Harold Mabern's on piano – again bringing in a different feel to this record for the group, with some lyrical undercurrents that are beautiful – and the rest of the lineup features Roy McCurdy on drums and Herb Lewis on bass – in addition to the sublime trumpet of Art Farmer and tenor of Benny Golson. Titles include one of the best versions of "Along Came Betty" that we've ever heard – plus the tracks "Domino", "Another Git Together", "Reggie", and "Space Station. LP, Vinyl record album

A great CD that combines most of the material on Art's two albums for Argo – Art (1960) and Perception (1961). Art is a beautiful album of understated brilliance – one of Farmer's early shifts into the sublime, an easily blown batch of trumpet tracks played with trio backing by Tommy Flanagan, Tommy Williams, and Albert Heath. The tracks are all in the four to five minute range, with Art crafting lyrically soulful lines over the top. Titles include "Who Cares", "Out Of The Past", "Younger Than Springtime", "That Ole Devil Called Love", and "Goodbye Old Girl". Perception is similar, an amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Art – playing with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern, in a laidback quartet format that really lets Art open up! Art's playing is fresh and creative throughout – never over the top, with that subtle genius that he was bringing to his work in the 60s – and the choice of material includes Tom McIntosh's great composition "The Day After", plus Art's "Punsu" and "Kayin". One track from each album has been omitted to fit the material on one CD (which is BS, by the way, as the CD is only 64 minutes long!) – but if you can stand having the incomplete versions of the albums, this is a great deal for some rare material!

The album's based on a number of historical and mythical southern themes – and although it gets a bit hokey at times, the work of Adderley and Art Farmer on the solo sections really opens up the piece and gives it a deep sense of soul. The setting is a drummer-less small group, with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Brooks on occasional piano – and themes include "The Loop", "Trampin", "Little John Shoes", "Milord's Calling", and "Rufus Playboy".

Ray's piano is in the lead, with a sinister soulful groove – and he's backed by his patented two-trumpet rhythm sound, played here by Art Farmer and Snookie Young – blasting away with a tightly vamping approach that's really in the groove. The rest of the record's great too – and other tracks include "The Fox Stalker" and "Return Of The Prodigal Son". One of Ray's best ever! LP, Vinyl record album

The album's a crowning achievement for pianist Sonny Clark – a player who'd already brought greatness to the world before the record, but really knocks it out of the park during the session – leading a razor sharp lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all coming together with some magic in the studio, crafting a sound that forever put Blue Note on the map! Tracks are long, open-ended, and almost effortlessly soulful – and titles include Clark's classics "Cool Struttin" and "Blue Minor", plus versions of "Sippin At Bells" and "Deep Night".

Possibly the strongest album ever recorded by mellow-voiced jazz vocalist Earl Coleman – a singer with a deeper style that's very much in the classic Billy Eckstine mode, but which swings a bit more freely in a small combo! The set's got a nicely open style – with longer tracks than usual for a jazz vocal date, and lots of room for jazz soloists that include Art Farmer on trumpet, Gigi Gryce on alto, and Hank Jones on piano. The backing is in a great small group mode, and in a way, the album's almost unique for the time – and really predates a lot of later male vocal sides of this nature – offering Coleman more of a fresh start than just a standard "return" – and really paving the way for Johnny Hartman sides in the 60s. Titles include "Say It Isn't So", "Reminiscing", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "No Love No Nothin", and a great version of "Social Call". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny ColesWarm Sound ... LP
Epic, 1961. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by trumpeter Johnny Coles – a player who's probably best known to the world for his work with Charles Mingus, or for his other 60s session on Blue Note! This album's quite different than both of those aspects of Johnny's career – and has him blowing some sweetly soulful ballads in a quartet setting with Kenny Drew on piano, Peck Morrison on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums. The feel is quite like some of Art Farmer's best of this nature from the time – laidback, but never too sleepy or sloppy – and Johnny definitely brings an edge to the record on the best numbers. Titles include some great Randy Weston compositions – "Hi Fly", "Pretty Strange", and "Where" – plus Johnny Coles' own "Room 3". LP, Vinyl record album

Hank De ManoHank De Mano Quartet In Concert (Flyin Flugelhorn/Hank De Mano Quartet In Concert) ... CD
Freeway/Fresh Sound (Spain), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A pair of rare albums from Hank De Mano – a flugelhorn player from the LA scene of the 60s – one who mostly seemed to work in a live setting! On Flyin Fluegelhorn, Hank De Mano is a great player on the flugelhorn – hardly "flyin" at all, despite the title – and instead a very careful, sensitive soloist who really takes his time with his instrument – and opens things up like a rare few players on that horn! The set's a live one, but has an intimate vibe throughout – nicely long tracks with a quartet that features Irv Rochlin on piano, Joe Richardson on bass, and Jack Lynde on drums – all working with lots of room for DeMano do really stretch out and do his thing! Titles include "Four", "Summertime", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", and "These Foolish Things". Next is the Hank De Mano Quartet Live In Concert – a rare set of live material, recorded in a really stretched-out, open formation that's quite unique for the time! Hank plays flugelhorn throughout the set – blowing in the spacious tones remind us a bit of Art Farmer's handling of the instrument, or of the wonderful work Clark Terry did on the horn when working with Bob Brookmeyer. Like both of those players, Hank's sound here is a wonderful balance of tone and timing – never too rushed, and always taking the time to find the right sort of style and phrasing for each tune. He's working here with a very well-matched group, too – one that features a young Frank Strazzeri on piano, plus Monte Budwig on bass and Nick Martinis on drums. Strazzeri's especially great, and shares a similarly fluid sensibility with De Mano – and titles include long takes on "Summertime", "Delilah", "Long Ago & Far Away", and "Angel Eyes". CD

Benny leads two groups – a quintet and a nontet – both of which feature players that include Art Farmer, Wynton Kelly, Sahib Shihab, Gigi Gryce, and Paul Chambers – working with arrangements by Golson and Gryce that are very much in the spirit of Benny's classic The Modern Touch album – with a similar blend of tight conception and soulfully confident solo work!

Dusko GoykovichBrandenberg Concert – Dusko Goykovich With Strings ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the greatest trumpeters on the European scene of the past few decades – heard here in a completely sublime setting! Dusko Goykovich has played in many styles and many ways, but hasn't ever done a date with full strings before – a long-overdue placement for his wonderful tone on trumpet – shimmering out front of a larger ensemble, in the manner of classic "with strings" dates by Dizzy Gillespie or Art Farmer! Altoist Peter King arranged the album – and titles are all originals by Dusko, some of which you might know from earlier records – reworked here beautifully for the new setting. King also solos on a handful of tracks too – a rich voice that provides a nice balance with Dusko's trumpet. Strings are never overdone, and the album's always got a nice swing from a core rhythm trio that features Renato Chicco on piano. Titles include "Good Old Days", "Handful O Soul", "Danca Comigo", "St Germain Des Pres", "Adriatica", "In My Dreams", and "I Miss You So". CD

The unique session has him playing in an MPS 60s mode – more straight-on than some of his more airy moments – with a sound and tone that still recalls his work with Paul Desmond or Art Farmer, but a more direct approach, and an occasional groove as well! The trio's as unique as the record – the great Jimmy Woode on bass and drums from Daniel Humair – and titles include "Blue Joe", "Romaine", "Young One For Debra", "Body & Soul", and a great version of "Up Up & Away", which soars to the sky in a way you'd never expect from Jim!

Soloists include Johnny Griffin, Toots Thielemans, Gerry Mulligan, Slide Hampton, and Art Farmer – and although the sound isn't as funky as Peter's MPS work, there's a few nice tracks that open up and groove nicely! Highlights include a nice take on Chick Corea's "Times Lie", Herbolzheimer's "Gentle Mood", Nat Adderley's "Work Song", and a version of "Moondance" that features vocals by Grady Tate!

Decca, 1955. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the rare few albums cut by 50s tenor star Joe Holiday – and a gem of a session that has him fronting a larger group, blowing lean well-cut solos on a number of very hip original tunes! The group's a large one, but the sound's still quite tight and swinging – a great follow-up to Joe's previous recordings on Prestige, showing an even more mature side of his talents. Holiday's got a great tone here – slightly echoey in its own right, and almost with some of the presence of bolder tenor players in the R&B world – yet still all jazz all the way through. Other players on the sessions include Thad Jones, Blue Mitchell, and Art Farmer on trumpets; Eddie Bert on trombone; Cecil Payne on baritone sax; and Duke Jordan on piano – and some of the arrangements are by Hal Mitchell. Titles are all originals by Joe – and include "Mimi The Champ", "Hello To You", "Opening Night", "Timmy's Tune", "Cousin Nino", "Skeetie", and "Tiny Mite". LP, Vinyl record album

A strange bit of funk from Yusef Lateef – a bit of a change from his other 70s records, but pretty nice too! The record was recorded late in the CTI electric years – and it's got Yusef fronting a funky jazz group on five long tracks that have a decidedly R&B-ish current – that Kudu/CTI vibe, stretched out in arrangements by the great Dave Matthews – the maestro who maybe made the second greatest contribution to CTI charts after Bob James! Lateef plays tenor, soprano sax, flute, shenhai, and even vocalizes a bit – and Art Farmer also gets in lots of solos on flugelhorn – in a lineup that also includes Cliff Carter on keyboards, Gary King on bass, and Eric Gale on guitar.

Bill PottsJazz Soul Of Porgy & Bess (2nd cover) ... LP

A stone cooker – and one of the best versions of Porgy & Bess recorded in a jazz format! It's a slightly-forgotten fact that at the time of the big late 50s film version of Porgy & Bess, there was a bit of trouble with the soundtrack – so the market was flooded with other versions of Gershwin's score in a hope to fill the void. This is one of the best of that bunch – a very well-done set of tunes arranged and conducted by Bill Potts, recorded with a strong set of soloists that include Al Cohn, Gene Quill, Zoot Sims, Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Charlie Shavers, Bob Brookmeyer, and Harry Edison. Tracks are the usual batch of Porgy & Bess numbers – "I Loves You Porgy", "It Ain't Necessarily So", "My Man's Gone Now", "A Woman Is A Sometimes Thing", "Summertime" – all woven together wonderfully in a rich tapestry of sound, with some particularly evocative solos.

Previn's working here in a mode that's sometimes lush and emotive, but often more upbeat and jazzy – and performed by a host of great jazz players that include Gerry Mulligan, Carmen McRae, Dave Bailey, Russ Freeman, Art Farmer, Art Pepper, and Jack Sheldon! There's loads of numbers that have a dark, moody finish – mixing together jazz soloing and strings, in a style that really gets at some of the sadness of the story.

RCA, 1957. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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".

Horace SilverFurther Explorations ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $8.99
One of the most fantastic Horace Silver albums from the 50s – a set of complicated tunes that really lives up to its "further explorations" title! The session's a perfect example of the way that Silver was mixing hard bop sensibilities with more exotic styles of arranging in the late 50s – pushing past the straighter bop of his Jazz Messengers years, and moving into a territory that can only be described as "Silver-esque", and which went onto have a strong impact on many other players in years to come. And although not as well known as some of Silver's other classics from the time, the album's got some key tracks that show his talents at their best – like the genius "Moon Rays", or other originals that include "The Outlaw", "Melancholy Mood", "Pyramid", and "Safari". The group, which features Clifford Jordan on tenor and Art Farmer on trumpet, has an emotional maturity that you don't always get on Blue Note sessions from these days – and the album is a hauntingly lyrical batch of tracks that is among some of Silver's finest recorded work!

This album was one of a number that Jug cut for Prestige during the mid 50s, all excellent examples of how perfectly the label's "blowing session" style could work when it wanted to. The set takes Ammons' tenor, and groups it with an all-star cast that includes Art Farmer and Donald Byrd on trumpets, Jackie McLean on alto, Mal Waldron on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. All the horn players are given free reign to solo – and as most of the tracks go on and on and on, they really get room to open up, blowing with the kind of competitive creativity you'd hear in a live set at the same time.

We've got a long-standing love affair with the music of Gil Melle, and this CD's a perfect example of why we think he's so great! Melle was an enigmatic baritone player who recorded for Blue Note and Prestige in the 50's, and his recordings for both labels have a strange other-wordly quality that's very difficult to describe, and which sets him apart from any other practitioner of the instrument at the time. Far from the clunky sounds you might expect from such a giant instrument, Melle produces these amazingly light waves of sound, which are interpolated by the members of his quartet – guitarist Joe Cinderella, bassist Vinnie Burke, and drummer Ed Thigpen – in a tangled web of spooky delights. The group's augmented here by some famous guests that are perfect choices for Melle's sound – like Art Farmer, Hal McKusick, Julius Watkins, and Don Butterfield – and the CD's filled with great compositions like "Soudan", "Block Island", "Funk For Star People", "Herbie", "Tomorrow", and "Ghengis".

The trio's as unique as the record – the great Jimmy Woode on bass and drums from Daniel Humair – and titles include "Blue Joe", "Romaine", "Young One For Debra", "Body & Soul", and a great version of "Up Up & Away", which soars to the sky in a way you'd never expect from Jim!

✨✧ Bob JamesBJ4 ... LP
CTI, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The 4th in Bob James legendary run of Fender Rhodes classics for CTI – and a record that still has him working with the dark edges that made the first few so great! As usual with these sets, there's a way of putting over the groove that's really unique – not really funky, but spacious enough to make even the simplest instrumental statements resonate with a punch that other fusion records never had – a James-like approach to rhythm and sound that's totally great, and which is made even better by key contributions from CTI labelmates who include Hubert Laws, Eric Gale, and Art Farmer. James plays Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – and titles include the funky sample cut "Tappan Zee", plus "Nights Are Forever Without You", "Where The Wind Blows Free", "Pure Imagination", "Treasure Island", and "El Verano". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Horace SilverStylings Of Silver (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great Horace Silver album – and one of the rarest! The record features some top-line material that virtually defines Silver's post-Jazz Messengers sound – tracks that come out with a hard and heavy groove, yet which also have a lightness in the mix too – a sense of play and lyricism that's always made Silver's soul deeper than most of his contemporaries! The group on the set is top-shelf all the way through – with Art Farmer on trumpet and Hank Mobley on tenor – alongside a rhythm team that includes Teddy Kotick on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. Titles include "Metamorphosis", "Home Cookin", "No Smokin", and "Soulville". CD

✨✧ VariousReturn Of Jazz Club – Dancefloor Classics From The Original Jazz Dance DJ ... CD
Prestige/BGP (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really classic jazz grooves from the vaults of Prestige Records – the kind of cuts that first broke big on the London scene of the 80s, at a time when diggers were setting fire to the rare groove scene too! The cuts here are proof that some of the best work doesn't need to come from completely obscure groups or super-tiny labels – as the music here is exactly the kind of work that made huge waves in the US jazz scene when first released, then went underground for many years – until later collectors and diggers brought it back to the limelight! The great thing is how many of these cuts are all acoustic – no need for electricity to make things funky – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Hiyo Silver" by Bennie Green, "Grease Monkey" by Kenny Burrell with Jack McDuff, "Mau Mau" by Art Farmer, "Mambo Inn" by Billy Taylor with Candido, "Manteca" by Red Garland, "Blue Stompin" by Hal Singer, "Spider Man" by Freddie McCoy, "Filthy McNasty" by Eddie Jefferson, "Flatjacks" by Willie Rodriguez, "Blue Gator" by Willis Jackson, and "Pedro Stroller" by Johnny Lytle.

✨✧ Ray BryantSlow Freight ... CD
Cadet/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer album by soul jazz pianist Ray Bryant! The title track, "Slow Freight", is an amazing 10 minute groover that moves at a very slow pace (just like a freight train), and which features some very cool ad-lib talking by Paul Serrano – a pretty groovy touch that really adds a lot to the track! Ray's piano is in the lead, with a sinister soulful groove – and he's backed by his patented two-trumpet rhythm sound, played here by Art Farmer and Snookie Young – blasting away with a tightly vamping approach that's really in the groove. The rest of the record's great too – and other tracks include "The Fox Stalker" and "Return Of The Prodigal Son". One of Ray's best ever! CD

A beautiful album from bassist Riccardo Del Fra – the French player who made some amazing records with Chet Baker in the 80s, and worked with Barney Wilen too! The album's dedicated to Chet, but has a vibe that's all Riccardo's own – as the tunes features mostly duets with a variety of wonderful artists – Art Farmer on flugelhorn, Dave Liebman on soprano sax, Michel Grallier and Enrico Pieranunzi on piano, and Rachel Gould on vocals!

✨✧ Wardell GrayWardell Gray Memorial Album Vol 2 ... CD
Prestige/OJC, Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best-ever documents of the young genius of tenorist Wardell Gray – exactly the kind of music that shows why he was one of the biggest and best of the bop saxophonists – before he was taken away from us all too soon! The material here was originally issued on 78s or 45s, and comes together as a great full length representation of Gray at his best – and on this second volume, Wardell works in some bigger groups on great long tracks with a nicely jamming feel! Players include Sonny Criss on alto, Art Farmer and Clark Terry on trumpet, Dexter Gordon on tenor, and Hampton Hawes on piano – and titles include "Move", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Lover", "Farmer's Market", "April Skies", "Jackie", and "Sweet & Lovely".

VariousNuggets – Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965 to 1968 ... LP
Rhino, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 33.99
One of those few classic cases where a compilation of tracks was maybe even more influential than the original music itself – as this early 70s collection of 60s material turned out to shape and influence generations for decades to come! Guitar genius Lenny Kaye put the set together famously for Elektra Records in 1972 – as a reminder that, just a few years before, there were some amazing sounds that were not only brewing up in local indie scenes around the country, but also on the radio as well – even though most of those groups had been pushed into relative obscurity by the rise of soft rock, hard rock, and classic rock of the early 70s! The package is a return to the pre-prog years, with an especially strong ear for garage-tuned tracks that would go on to shape later punk, 80s indie, and lots more underground sounds in the future. Titles include "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)" by Electric Prunes, "Dirty Water" by the Standells, "Respect" by Vagrants, "No Time Like The Right Time" by Blues Project, "Invitation To Cry" by Magicians, "You're Gonna Miss Me" by Thirteenth Floor Elevators, "Psychotic Reaction" by Count Five, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Amboy Dukes, "My World Fell Down" by Sagittarius, "Open My Eyes" by Nazz, "It's A Happening" by The Magic Mushrooms, "Lies" by The Knickerbockers, "Oh Yeah" by Shadows Of Knight, "Sit Down I Think I Love You" by The Mojo Men, "Just Like Romeo & Juliet" by Michael & The Messengers, "Hey Joe" by The Leaves, and "Farmer John" by The Premiers.

✨✧ Perry Robinson QuartetCall To The Stars ... CD
West Wind (Germany), 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful little set from clarinetist Perry Robinson – the greatest modern player on his instrument since Jimmy Giuffre! Robinson first caught attention for his groundbreaking 60s avant work on Savoy and ESP, but was hardly heard from much in following decades, save for a few sporadic recordings – which is what makes this set all the more important! The feel here is very much like Robinson's best work of the 60s – angular, edgey, but never too free to lose a sense of swing – and often with a surprising groove at times. There's some nice Eastern European touches to a few of the tunes, and the quartet set features mostly original numbers that include "Henry's Dance", "Unisphere", "Farmer Alfalfa", "Call To The Stars", and "Perrywinkle Blue".

Mose AllisonI Don't Worry About A Thing (gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Modern Harmonic, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
Early Atlantic Records work from the great Mose Allison – easily one of the most unique jazz artists of his time! Most started out as a pianist with a nicely bluesy vibe, but soon added in this excellent vocal approach that was maybe part New Orleans, part New York hipster – delivered here with a vibe that follows nicely from his earlier recordings for Columbia and Prestige Records! The sound is nice and stripped-down – none of the larger arrangements that Mose would soon use on Atlantic – and the set features accompaniment from Addison Farmer on bass and Osie Johnson on drums. Titles include the classic "Your Mind Is On Vacation" – plus "I Don't Worry About A Thing", "It Didn't Turn Out That Way", "Stand By", "Meet Me At No Special Place", and "The Song Is Ended".

Merle HaggardKern River/Amber Waves Of Grain ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1985. New Copy ... $8.99 19.99
Two mid-80s sets from Merle Haggard – back to back on a single CD! First up is Kern River – a real classic from the Epic Records years of Merle Haggard – a set that has both the singer and the label realizing that one of the strongest suits of Hag's style at the time was his maturity – which is brought to light here in a great set of blue-tinged tunes filled with themes of loss and looking back! Grady Martin co-produced the set with Merle, and there's an easygoing vibe here that never pushes Haggard's vocals too much – and instead really revels in the gentler tones and more personal aspects of his voice. Titles include the classic "Kern River" – plus "Old Flames Can't Hold A Candle To You", "There Won't Be Another Now", "I Wonder Where I'll Find You At Tonight", "You Don't Love Me Any More", and "There's Somebody Else On Your Mind". Amber Waves is a later live set from Merle Haggard – one that echoes some of the attitudes of his famous concert recordings for Capitol, but which also has some nicely different qualities too! As with those albums, Merle's definitely pitching some of the ideas and politics towards a more populist audience – but he's also reveling in some of the more mature modes of his Epic Records years – sliding into some of the mellower tunes with the confidence that he often brought to his more uptempo early hits. Titles include "I Wish Things Were Simple Again", "Amber Waves", "American Waltz", "The Farmer's Daughter", and "Gone With The Wind" – plus cool medley cuts "Tulare Dust/Mama Tried", "The Okie From Muskogee's Comin Home/The Okie From Muskogee", and "Working Man's Blues/Always Late With Your Kisses".

Includes lots of tracks that rocked the rare groove scene in the 80s, including "(Somebody Got) Soul Soul Soul" and "Corey Died On The Battlefield". With nice sweet keyboards, and a good funky New Orleans sound that you won't find on many other records from the time. A great one!

✨✧ Bob BrookmeyerKansas City Revisited ... LP
United Artists, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very unusual session – especially considering Bob Brookmeyer's more modernist modes of the 50s! This album has Bob going back to roots you might not guess that he had – picking up bits of a Kansas City sound that (as he tells in the liner notes) clearly inspired him in the early days, and which is presented here surprisingly well by a septet that includes Bob on valve trombone, Al Cohn and Paul Quinichette on tenor, Nat Pierce on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Addison Farmer on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – all playing long and lean on some real Basie-styled numbers. Quinichette's presence really sets the tone for the record, and seems to pull out earthy qualities in the other players that we didn't even know they had – and on 2 numbers, Big Miller delivers some bluesy vocals as well. Titles include "Jumping At The Woodside", "A Blues", "Blue & Sentimental", and "Moten Swing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kasai All StarsBlack Ants Always Fly Together – One Bangle Makes No Sound (with bonus download) ... LP
Crammed (Belgium), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really fantastic work from the Kasai All Stars – a group we first discovered years ago, as part of the excellent Congotronics series – but one who here really stretch past their roots, and embrace a mature sound that really lets them spread their wings in fly! There's still some of the unusual electronic bits that marked the Congotronics work – but those qualities are often a bit lower in the mix, and replaced with warmly collaborative vocals, and guitar work that serves up the occasional solo passage that may well give the Tuareg scene a good run for its money! As before, the group bring together artists from a few different cultural paths in Kasai – and titles include "Baba Bende", "Unity Is Strength", "Betrayal By Gossip", "Like A Dry Leaf On A Tree", "Kasai Munene", "Hunters & Farmers Need The Blacksmith", and "Ecstasy Of Singing".

Iron Mountain Analog Research (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully deep dive into the darker corners of country music – not the tear-tinged weepies of the postwar years, but some of the more thoughtful, introspective tracks that emerged in the following generation – which represent a new level of maturity in the music, and reflect the way that country could maybe offer up some of the most personal, pointed songs songs of the time! The "psychodrama" here is reflected in a mix of philosophical and social themes – never too moody or dark to get in the way of these records just being damn great songs – and delivered by some of the giants of the time, but as cuts that are some of their lesser-known work. Titles include "You Can't Stop The Wind From Blowing" by Bobby Bare, "The Farmer's Prayer" by Dave Dudley, "Shadows Of Her Mind" by Ed Bruce, "Enough To Take The Me Out Of The Men" by Red Sovine, "What I'd Give To Be The Wind" by Roger Miller, "Searching" by Rube Gallagher, "It's A Rough Old Road To Travel" by Johnny Darnell, "Wine The River & You" by Clay Hart, and "War Is Hell" by Jim Ed Brown.
