Eddie Costa & Art FarmerEddie Costa Quintet (Interlude pressing) ... LP
Interlude, 1957. Very Good- ... $29.99
An extremely great session from Eddie Costa – one of his best sessions recorded for Mode from 1957! In what is an odd meeting of players, especially for the label, Eddie's piano and vibes meet up with Art Farmer's trumpet, the alto of Phil Woods, bass of Teddy Kotick, and drums of Paul Motian – all of whom work together with the fluidity and soulfulness of some of the best Prestige sessions of the time. The horn work is tremendous – and it's hard to remember Woods sounding this great on other albums of the time, really cutting an edge next to Farmer's trumpet – which also has an incredible tone for the album, right up there with his Farmer's Market record. Titles include "Big Ben", "Blues Plus Eight", "Stretch In F", and "Get Out Of The Road". LP, Vinyl record album

Art FarmerArt Farmer In Europe ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
Brilliant live work from Farmer – far-reaching, firey, and with a strong approach that differs it from most of his other recordings of the 70s! The set was recorded in Munich at a time when Farmer was working with pianist Fritz Pauer – a free-thinking modernist who cut some great recordings for MPS at the time, including one under Farmer's name – and the album has Farmer and Pauer's trio working through 5 long original tunes all written by Farmer, with a soulful majesty that reminds us a bit of Woody Shaw's work from the time. All titles are nearly 10 minutes long, or longer – and titles include "Concord", "Overnight", "Re-Entry", "Concourse", and "Rainmaker". CD
(Part of the "Enja – Real Jazz Classics" series!)

✨✧ Art FarmerArt/Perception ... CD
Argo/Gambit (Spain), Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A couple of wonderful efforts from trumpet great Art Farmer at the beginning of the 60s – the Argo LPs Art and Perception – back-to-back on CD! 1960's Art is an album of understated brilliance – one of Farmer's early shifts into the sublime, an easily blown batch of trumpet tracks played with 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". Next up is 61's Perception – an amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Farmer – playing here with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern on piano, in a laidback 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", Art's "Punsu" and "Kayin", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", "Change Partners" and "Nobody's Heart".

Contemporary, 1987. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An unexpected treasure – like so many of Art Farmer's later albums! The record is ostensibly a tribute to the music of Billy Strayhorn – which might make us expect some soporific Ellington cliches – but the session's really just a small group one, played by Art with a quintet that includes Clifford Jordan, James Williams, Rufus Reid, and Marvin Smitty Smith – all coming together in a fluidly soulful style that's really great. 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".

Art FarmerSoul Eyes (with bonus track) ... CD
Enja/Solid (Japan), 1992. New Copy ... $13.99 About May 26, 2021
Never-failing genius from Art Farmer – recording here in his later years, and working in that long and open-ended mode we love so much! There's few trumpeters who could make a record like this work – but Farmer's got a tremendous ability to stretch out on longer tunes with well-crafted solos that make beautiful use of soundspace and texture – letting his trumpet almost float along in the air and find its own notes, while the trio of Geoff Keezer piano, Kenny Davis bass, and Lewis Nash on drums provide just the right sort of accompaniment. The album's got a grace that matches any of Art's excellent mid 70s sides from Japan – and is proof that his talents never waned as the years went on – making him one of the few talents from his generation who continued to create and invent beautifully over time. Titles include "Soul Eyes", "Isfahan", "Will You Still Be Mine", "Sad To Say", "Time On My Hands", and "Recorda Me". CD

Art FarmerTime & The Place ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A tremendous document of a really wonderful group – a 60s ensemble that pairs the lyrical trumpet of Art Farmer with the sharp tenor of Jimmy Heath! The pair are completely sublime together – balancing out sound and soul with this amazing quality that's quite different both from Farmer's larger body of work, and from most sounds that Jimmy would do on his own (although at another level, the record does point the way towards the seminal Heath dates as a leader in the early 70s.) The rhythm section is a key part of the strength of the album – with Cedar Walton as an amazing bridge between the spirit of the two horn players – set up perfectly with Walter Booker on bass and Mickey Roker on drums. Art's got this edge that really stands out, but he also retains his majestic sense of lyrical beauty too. One of our favorites – with titles that include "One For Juan", "Nino's Scene", "Short Cake", and "The Time & The Place". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art Farmer & Benny Golson Jazztet & John LewisJazztet & John Lewis ... CD
Argo/Universal (Japan), 1961. Used ... $14.99
We'll be the first to admit that the piano and compositions of John Lewis can sometimes be a bit stiff and academic – but that's definitely not the case on this great little record! The album features interpretations of Lewis' work by the great Farmer/Golson Jazztet – and is a pretty sweet batch of tracks that adds a lot of the emotion and soul that's usually missing from Lewis' music. Cedar Walton's playing the piano parts, which probably helps the groove a bit, and the group's tight hard sound puts in a "bottom" that you'd hardly hear when listening to John Lewis with the MJQ. In fact, Lewis isn't even on the record – just billed in the title because he contributed the compositions – classics that include "Odds Against Tomorrow", "Bel", "Milano", and "New York 19". CD

✨✧ Art Farmer/Benny GolsonMeet The Jazztet ... CD
Argo/Chess, 1960. Used ... $4.99
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

Prestige/OJC, 1953/1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal modern jazz from Art Farmer and Gigi Gryce, with more than a little help from Quincy Jones! The two groups represented here are both medium sized, with Art joined by Jimmy Cleveland up front, and a variety of other sidemen including Cliff Solomon, Oscar Estell, Charlie Rouse and Danny Bank on saxes, and Quincy Jones, Horace Silver, Monk Montgomery, Percy Heath, Sonny Johnson and Arthur Taylor in the rhythm section. The music is a great balance of some of Gryce's academic tendencies set against very soulful hard bop performances. Tracks include "Work Of Art", "The Little Bandmaster", "Mau Mau", "Up In Quincy's Room", "Wildwood", "Evening In Paris", "Elephant Walk" and "Tiajuana".

✨✧ Art FarmerAztec Suite (second cover) ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare Latin outing from trumpeter Art Farmer – one that has him working with the mighty Cuban arranger Chico O'Farrill! The grooves here are hardly "Aztec", as Chico brings a hip postwar vibe to the session – a blend of American jazz and Latin rhythms that's totally great, and played by an all-star array of players conducted by Al Cohn! Side one of the record features the extended "Aztec Suite" – an ambitious number that begins with modern moments that are somewhere in a space between Stan Kenton and Ralph Burns' experiments of this nature, but which always has Farmer's trumpet as the center focus. Side two features tracks that are a bit more conventional Latin jazz – still played by the bigger group, but with an even stronger sense of swing! Titles include "Aztec Suite", "Heat Wave", "Drume Negrita", "Alone Together", "Woody N You", and "Delirio". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art FarmerFarmer's Market (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Prestige, 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

One of the best albums ever by this crack soul jazz combo – the mighty Jazztet, an early 60s group led by Art Farmer and Benny Golson! The set was recorded in Chicago, and it features the group hard-grooving through some really well-arranged numbers – lively tunes with a snapping, in-the-pocket kind of groove, played with a lot more soul than you'd expect from either Golson or Farmer's solo albums. The rest of the group's great, too – and features Cedar Walton on piano, Tom McIntosh on trombone, and Albert Heath on drums. A few tracks are nice and long, and titles include "Farmer's Market", "Junction", "November Afternoon", and "Shutterbug". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art FarmerLive At The Half Note ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from the legendary Art Farmer – sounds from a time when the trumpeter was really coming into his own, and finding a way to carve out a special space for himself in modern jazz! The sounds here are fresh, but never overstated – blown with that compact mode that makes Farmer's phrasing so distinct, and set up here with a perfect quartet that features Jim Hall on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Walter Perkins on drums. All players are masters of understatement – and the band is sort of a perfect extension of some of Jimmy Guiffre's earlier work on Atlantic with Hall – as they've perfected a simple style that leaves the instrumental solos floating in air, interacting with each other in subtle complex ways that never cease to amaze. Tracks are longer than on some of the studio albums by the group – and titles include "Swing Spring", "I Want To Be Happy", and "What's New". LP, Vinyl record album

Black Saint (Italy), 1980s. New Copy 6 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Overlooked later work from trumpeter Art Farmer – a series of recordings done for the Italian Soul Note label in the 80s – featuring Art in his most mature and expressive modes! Farmer's trumpet was one of the warmer instruments to appear on the often-avant label – and in that setting, Art seems to take on a bit more of an edge than usual – crafting these soulful lines on flugelhorn and a bit of trumpet, in the company of musicians that include Clifford Jordan and Benny Golson on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Sahib Shihab on baritone, and Kenny Drew on piano. One album features Farmer joining the group of pianist Enrico Pieranunzi, and another is a set of duets with pianist Fritz Pauer – and the box features the full six albums Isis, Manhattan, Mirage, Moment To Moment, You Make Me Smile, and Azure – all with original artwork.

An amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Art Farmer – playing here with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern on piano, in a laidback quartet format that really lets Art open up! Art's playing is fresh and creative throughout – never too over the top, and always blown with that subtle genius that he was bringing to his work in the 60s – a pure exercise in understatement, with a quality that seems to make the notes fall out of the air by themselves. Rhythm is by Tommy Williams on bass and Roy McCurdy on drums – and the choice of material includes Tom McIntosh's great composition "The Day After", plus Art's "Punsu" and "Kayin" – and versions of "Change Partners", "Blue Room", and "Nobody's Heart".

A great large group project from arranger Manny Albam – one that teams him up with "jazz greats" of the east coast scene, in a really hard-swinging set of tracks that showcase some wonderful solo work! Manny's working here with a set of players who are well-chosen for their ability to work strongly in an ensemble, yet also break out with strong solo work when the moment comes – and the lineup includes Gerry Mulligan, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, Bob Brookmeyer, and Art Farmer – with rhythm by the trio of Hank Jones, Milt Hinton, and Osie Johnson. The tracks are long, with more room for soloing than usual on this sort of album – and nearly all of them are originals by Manny.

Titles on that one include "Stringin The Jug", "New Blues Up & Down", and "You Can Depend On Me". The other side of the record features Ammons in one of those great Prestige open-ended groups – with crack players like Art Farmer, Lou Donaldson, and Freddie Redd – all soloing long and soulfully on two tracks – "Woofin & Tweetin" and "Juggernaut".

Rhythm's handled by Addison Farmer on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and the mighty Candido also adds in some congas, to really give things a kick.

And while Brown never recorded much for Prestige – and never really as a leader – these sides are still a great example of his completely unique touch on the trumpet!

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99 About May 26, 2021
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

There's a lovely sort of balance to the record that makes it stand out from some of Dusko's other recent work – and titles include "Ballad For Belgrade", "All My Love", "One Morning In May", "Little Theo", "I Miss You So", and "In My Dreams".

The set has Dusko playing a set of bossa-inspired tunes – working with a quartet that includes guitar, bass, and drums – in a warmly chromatic style that reminds us a lot of the classic Art Farmer/Jim Hall sessions of the early 60s! Dusko's playing is as imaginative as ever – and takes on whole new levels of expression in this setting. The light rhythms of the tunes are a real contrast from the modal and soul jazz approaches of earlier years – and in some ways, they seem to set Dusko free to explore whole new territory. Great stuff all around – with titles that include "The Fish", "Quo Vadis", "Sunset", "Samba Do Mar", "Jim's Ballad", and "Love & Deception". CD

ABC, 1956/1961. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
A split 70s LP – with two earlier classics! First up is How I Feel About Jazz – an important early album from Quincy Jones! Q's working here in some of his hippest settings of the 50s – scoring longish versions of jazz tunes for groups that include players like Lucky Thompson on tenor, Herbie Mann on flute, Art Farmer on trumpet, Phil Woods and Gene Quill on alto sax, Hank Jones on piano, and even Charles Mingus on bass! As with most Jones albums of the time, Quincy has a way of making a bigger group sound nice and lean – hitting some especially nice edges along with the rhythms, and really showing the way towards a new soulful sound for a bigger band. Titles include a sublime 10 minute version of "Walkin" that kicks off the album with a great soulful groove – plus original tunes "Evening In Paris", "Stockholm Sweetnin", and "Boo's Blues", as well as a version of Cannonball Adderley's "Sermonette". Next is Quintessence – a very soulful set of big band material from Quincy Jones – recorded during that tight early 60s period when his arrangements just couldn't fail! The album's his only session for Impulse, and it's got a slightly deeper style than his work from the time for Mercury – a bit more sophisticated, with nice modern touches that take the tunes in surprising directions. Part of the greatness of the set lies in the players – as the album features work by Curtis Fuller, Thad Jones, Stu Martin, Freddie Hubbard, Patty Brown, Phil Woods, and Jerome Richardson – and titles include "Robot Portrait", "Hard Sock Dance", "The Twitch", and "For Lena & Lennie".

Hal McKusickJazz Workshop ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1957. Used ... $14.99
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". CD

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio (green & yellow vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. New Copy ... $24.99
Sergio Mendes is definitely a swinger – especially on this jazz-based session that was recorded before his famous work with Brasil 66! This album was recorded in New York, at a time when Mendes was one of the hottest things brewing in the bossa scene in Brazil – and apart from the great Antonio Carlos Jobim on guitar, many of the other players are American jazz musicians – including Art Farmer on flugelhorn, Phil Woods on alto sax, and Hubert Laws on flute – all adding in some nice jazzy elements to the tunes! The music is all instrumental, and a great mix of jazz and bossa that really lets you hear the young Sergio's skills on piano. Titles include "Maria Moita", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", "The Dreamer", "Primavera", "Favela", and "Pau Brazil". LP, Vinyl record album

This is the small combo recording of tracks from the legendary jazz score to I Want To Live! Although not featured that prominently in the film, the band of Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, Bud Shank, and others were a pretty tight little group – even though it was strange to see this west coast whitebread group playing in scenes of jazz/crime/evil. The record's a nice one, though, and features some of the livelier playing you'll hear from the players. Tracks are long, and titles include "Black Nightgown", "Night Watch", and the raging "Theme From I Want To Live". LP, Vinyl record album

Black Saint (Italy), 1980s/1990s. New Copy 6CD ... $32.99 41.99
The Black Saint/Soul Note label is perhaps best remembered for its work with American avant players, but it also gave plenty of Italian players some great exposure, too – as you'll hear in this excellent collection of work from pianist Enrico Pieranunzi! The set features 6 albums for the label by Pieranunzi – all beautifully remastered, and packaged in tiny record-type sleeves. First up is the lovely Isis (1981), a date that features excellent flugelhorn from Art Farmer, and alto from Massimo Urbani. Next are two trio dates, Deep Down (1987), with Joey Baron on drums and Marc Johnson on bass – and No Man's Land (1990), with Johnson on bass and Steve Houghton on drums. Flux & Change (1995) features some great duets between Pieranunzi's piano and the drums of Paul Motian – stretched out over short tracks wrapped up into three different "suites" of music. Pieranunzi returns to the trio on Seaward (1996), with Hein Van DeGeyn on bass and Andre Ceccarelli on drums – and Ma L'Amore No (1997) features the horns of Lee Konitz and Enrico Rava added to various tracks with a trio. 6 albums in all!

A beat-era film classic – Andre Previn's jazzy score to the film based on Jack Kerouac's novel The Subterraneans! 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. Tracks include "Guido's Blackhawk", "Analyst", "Raising Caen", and "Like Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Decca, 1958. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful album from George Russell – a refreshing change from his overly-academic modernist work – and a brilliant bit of new ideas with some very down to earth expression! The session's an unusual one – a musical portrait of New York City, performed with an all-star cast who really flesh out the ideas in the music – linked together with these fantastic spoken bits by Jon Hendricks – patter about the city and the scene that really make the whole thing come alive! The lineup is virtually a who's who of modern jazz at the moment – John Coltrane and Benny Golson on tenors, Art Farmer on trumpet, Bill Evans on piano, Hal McKusick and Phil Woods on alto, and Max Roach on drums – coming together under some of the clearest leadership that George Russell has ever provided.

Horace SilverFurther Explorations (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 34.99
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!

Not just cool jazz – despite what the title might say – and instead a whole host of soulful jazzy styles from the late 50s and early 60s – pulled forth from the kind of singles that once boomed from backroom jukeboxes in taverns on the south side of town! The collection is great – very much in the spirit of some of the Mod Jazz compilations on Ace, but maybe even a bit more farther-reaching too – and the tracks are a great mix of instrumental and vocal jazz numbers, put together with the same great ear as the soul collections on the Outta Sight label. Titles include "Like Young" by Ann Henry, "I Walk The Streets" by Lyn Avalon, "Scenes In The City (edit)" by Charles Mingus, "Comin Home Baby" by Dave Bailey, "Johnny With The Gentle Hands" by Cootie Williams & Wini Brown, "Baby Do You Ever Think Of Me" by Sonny Stitt, "Goodbye Old Girl" by Art Farmer, "Wayning Moments" by Wayne Shorter, and "Sack O Woe" by Ray Bryant.

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.

Blue Note, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most legendary albums on Blue Note – or maybe THE most legendary albums on Blue Note – a stunning session that shows what the label was capable of when it was really hitting on all burners – from the lineup to the music to the production – and even the classic cover art on the front! 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". Plus, this CD also adds 2 long bonus cuts – "Lover" and "Royal Flush" – both of which weren't on the original album! CD

The horn work is tremendous – and it's hard to remember Woods sounding this great on other albums of the time, really cutting an edge next to Farmer's trumpet – which also has an incredible tone for the album, right up there with his Farmer's Market record!

The set's almost a maturation of the earliest modern grooves that Milt forged in his earlier sessions for Blue Note and Prestige – a sound that comes across here with a lot more confidence and focus than some of his 50s Savoy sides – with a sharper, edgier quality that comes from Golson's great arrangements for the record. Milt's vibes have a really chromatic feel here, and a sound that's almost louder than usual – and the rest of the group features Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Connie Kay on drums. Titles include "Blues For Diahann", "I Remember Clifford", "Thinking Of You", and "Whisper Not". CD

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.

Wheeler had already made a number of key recordings by the time of this ECM set, but the label's approach seems to unlock something new in his playing – a deeper sensitivity, yet never in the slower, too-open way of other ECM players – almost an Art Farmer sort of approach to the flugelhorn, which he uses exclusively on this set. The tracks are all quite long, but very focused and flowing – with key rhythmic support from the trio of Keith Jarrett on piano, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all of whom are happy to put their own agendas aside, and let Wheeler's magnificent lines direct the album's sound. Titles include "Heyoke", "Smatter", and "Gnu Suite". CD

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 the set Wardell plays tenor in one group with Al Haig on piano and Roy Haynes on drums – on titles that include "Easy Living", "Twisted", and "Southside". Another combo features Phil Hill on piano – on "Treadin", "Grayhound", and "Blue Gray". And the last combo is Teddy Charles' West Coasters – with Charles on vibes, Frank Morgan on alto, and Sonny Clark on piano – the last two of whom make their debut on the record! On the second half, 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".

Bob Brookmeyer's got a cool, compressed tone – that great approach he developed on valve trombone in the 50s – and it brings a new level of sophistication to the trumpet of Clark Terry here – at a time when the player was really opening up to new ideas, and effortlessly balancing a fresh modern vibe with a swinging sense of soul! The horns work a special magic together – one that's like a more sophisticated take on the sound that Art Farmer and various trombonists could craft in the Jazztet – and rhythm is from the trio of Roger Kellaway on piano, Bill Crow on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums – the last of whom seems to remember the great energy he brought to his own records on Epic a few years before, which also featured Terry.

3 great CTI records from Jim Hall – including work with Art Farmer, Chet Baker & Hubert Laws – in a great 2CD set! Concierto is one Hall's most compelling albums from the 70s – a mix of lightly swinging tunes and more complicated numbers, recorded with some of his best partners from earlier years! Chet Baker is on trumpet, Paul Desmond is on alto sax – and the rest of the group includes Ron Carter bass, Roland Hanna piano, and Steve Gadd on drums. The centerpiece of the album is the 19 minute long "Concierto De Aranjuez", and other tracks include "The Answer Is Yes", "Two's Blues" and 5 bonus tracks including "Rock Skippin'", "Unfinished Business" plus a few alternate takes of album tracks. Big Blues is sweet and subtle genius from Art Farmer and Jim Hall – in a quintet with vibes by Mike Mainieri – in a style that eschews the electric funk of other CTI records, but has a similar sense of space, sound, and rhythm overall – proof that the label's groundbreaking approach didn't always have to be electrified! Tracks are quite long, and the two leaders effortlessly craft notes that magically hang in space with an airily soulful feel. Titles include wonderfully reworked versions of "Whisper Not", "A Child Is Born", and "Pavane For A Dead Princess". Studio Trieste is great later date with Chet Baker & Hubert Laws! The session's a larger group effort headed up by Don Sebesky, and featuring key solos by Chet Baker, Jim Hall, and Hubert Laws – all of whom get plenty of room to do their thing on the album's longer tracks! Other players include Kenny Barron, Jack Wilkins, Jorge Dalto, George Mraz, and Steve Gadd – plus bit of added percussion – and although the group is large, the overall sound is relatively lean – spacious and airy, in keeping with Baker's best moments on records like these, and always sensitive enough to let Hall's gentle work on the strings of his guitar shine through nicely! Titles include "Malaguena", "Django", "Swan Lake", and "All Blues". CD

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.

Charles' richly chromatic work on vibes is a precursor to some of Bobby Hutcherson's "new thing" playing or Walt Dickerson's groundbreaking work of the early 60s – and Mal Waldron is the perfect foil he needs for spinning out his lines in the long extended tracks on the album.

Titles on vinyl vol 3 include "Mother's Day" by Lenny Marcus Trio, "Africa The Beautiful" by Roland Hayes, "Muhammad Ali" by Jule Farmer, "Fulive" by Supa Lowery Brothers, "Themes & Variations" by Black Is, "Natural Life" by Natural Life, "Heal It" by Rama Dyushambee, and "Catechism For D" by The Hippest Set.

✨✧ VariousHere Today! – The Songs Of Brian Wilson ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Think the genius of Brian Wilson was only tapped by his partners in The Beach Boys? Think again – because as this lovely little set will show, a huge amount of other artists drew from the songwriting genius of Brian Wilson in the 60s – not just to cover the big hits of his famous group, but also to dig much deeper into the full spectrum of his songbook – and come up with their own versions of album tracks from Pet Sounds, Smile, and other gems of the time! The collection is wonderfully free of overdone hits – and instead is full of lots of our favorite songs from Wilson – and not just tunes he wrote for the Beach Boys, but other artists as well. And although Brian himself only produced a handful of cuts on the set, most of the 25 numbers have a very unified feel – thanks to a host of contemporary producers really working hard to explore things in the same way as Wilson in the studio. There's a few cuts from later years, but most are late 60s vintage – and titles include "Here Today" by Bobby Vee, "Guess I'm "Dumb" by Johnny Wells, "Time To Get Alone" by Redwood, "Farmer's Daughter" by Basil Swift & The Seegrams, "Girl Don't Tell Me" by Keith Green, "She Rides With Me" by Joey & The Continentals, "My Buddy Seat" by The Hondells, "Don't Hurt My Little Sister" by The Surfaris, "Caroline No" by Nick DeCaro, "Good Vibrations" by Hugo Montenegro, "You Still Believe In Me" by Kristy MacColl, and "God Only Knows" by Betty Everett.

✨✧ Bob BrookmeyerKansas City Revisited (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Pure Pleasure (UK), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... 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

✨✧ John KoernerSome American Folk Songs Like They Used To ... LP
Sweet Jane, 1974. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Rare work from the great Spider John Koerner – the unique singer whose mix of folk and blues was a key part in the development of the Elektra Records sound of the 60s – heard here in a much more obscure release from the mid 70s! The album features Koerner on vocals, guitar, and a bit of harmonica – working through a set of short, rootsy, folksy tunes that have all the bite and punch of his best early work – maybe even more so, as there's a slight "wink" going on here – kind of a post-hippie sense of wit that's a nice change from the more straightforward modes of John's earliest material. Backing is relatively spare throughout – and titles include "The Dodger", "Farmer's Curst Wife", "Careless Love", "Danville Girl", "Abdulla Bulbur Amir", and "Jack Of Diamonds".

Lucky BrownLucky Brown's Space Dream ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2011. Used ... $9.99
Spacey raw funk from Lucky Brown – perfectly raw and gritty instrumental jams and vocal numbers and some jazz funk heaviness from the man behind The Funk Revolution, Crawdad Farmers and more – one of the more furiously creative figures in the international funk scene! This compilation pulls together hard-to-find/out of print funky 45 tracks recorded with the above named combos, never-before-released funk bombs, and unheard longer versions – the latter of which show a range and a depth only hinted out on funk 45s! it's really great to have all this stuff together as one impeccable set. Includes "Still Listening", "Jesse's Party", "Redbeard", "Don't Go Away",, "Potato Cakes" (Pts 1 & 2), "Deal With It", "She's A Hard Workin' Woman", "Scatterbrain", "Izzy Come, Izzy Go", "Space Dream" and more.

Mal WaldronSing Or Play The Music Of Duke Ellington ... LP
Music Minus One, Mid 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
One of Mal's rare sessions for the Music Minus One label – performed by his trio with Addison Farmer on bass and Ed Shaughnessy on drums, and ostensibly designed to accompany a solo singer or instrumentalist – but equally nice on its own. The feel is a bit open, and titles include "Caravan", "I Got It Bad", "Jump For Joy", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", and "Solitude". LP, Vinyl record album
