Tito Puente & Buddy MorrowRevolving Bandstand ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A rare 70s appearance on RCA for both Tito Puente and Buddy Morrow – both leaders who recorded some great work for the label in the 50s, sounding great here in a unique variation on their classic sounds! The album has both Morrow and Puente playing back to back – creating a "revolving bandstand" that has both groups playing the same tunes at the same time – a very odd approach, but one that comes off well here – mixing Tito's Latin and Buddy's swing nicely, without too much confusion in the instrumentation. There's some great vibes on a few tracks – and arrangements are by Puente and George Williams, on tunes that include "Temptation", "So In Love", "Kiss Of Fire", "The Continental", "Baia", and "Blue Moon".

✨✧ Cecil TaylorLifting The Bandstand ... CD
Listen Foundation, 1998. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A late 90s recording, and one that has Cecil Taylor really going strong – soaring out on a long, improvised piece that runs for 75 minutes in length – with a strong and unusual group that features Tristan Honsinger on cello, Harri Sjostrom on soprano sax, Teppo Hauta-Aho on bass, and Paul Lovens on drums, cymbals, and gongs! In a way, there's a resonance between Taylor and Lovens that holds the whole thing together – sometimes Cecil's voice and Lovens' percussion ringing out – while free interplay takes place between the entire group, but really with a sense of patience that shows the way that things open up over the long time of the performance! The set features one long cut – "Desperados", improvised freely – and the album's title is from an enthusiastic statement by Steve Lacy after the concert. CD

Miles DavisAt Last – Miles Davis & The Lighthouse All Stars ... LP
Contemporary, 1953. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Quite an unusual moment in west coast jazz history – one tremendous night at the legendary Lighthouse nightclub, that featured performances by both Chet Baker and Miles Davis! Chet and Miles didn't play in the same group, but both graced the same bandstand on the same night – working through a shifting lineup of personnel in what was a "showdown" of sorts – especially since Chet had just beat Miles out in the 1953 Downbeat poll! Most of this issue is actually Miles playing with the Lighthouse group, which includes Bob Cooper, Howard Rumsey, Bud Shank and Max Roach who also gets a moment to shine on his solo "Drum Conversation" – and other titles include "At Last", "Infinity Promenade", "Round Midnight" and "Night In Tunisia".

Sheila JordanSheila Jordan Live At Mezzrow ... CD
Cellar Live/Smalls Live, 2022. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A beautifully intimate setting for the vocal magic of Sheila Jordan – a singer we always seem to like even more in a live performance than we do in the studio! There's a special sort of charm to the way that Jordan delivers a tune – straighter in recent years than her modern experiments of the 70s, but still with an edge that often belies her sweeter look on the bandstand – and an understanding of both the underground songbook and the kind of more obscure, hipper jazz numbers that have always made her records so great. The recording preserves all the wit and warmth that Sheila can have on stage – and she's working here with Harvie S on bass and Alan Broadbent on piano – on titles that include "Bird Alone", "Blue In Green", "Baltimore Oriole", "Falling In Love With Love", "The Bird/Confirmation", and "Lucky To Be Me".

Jack McDuffLive!/Live! At The Jazz Workshop ... CD
Prestige, 1963/1965. Used ... $8.99
Slammin live work from the legendary Brother Jack McDuff – a player who was almost better on the bandstand than he was in the studio! First up is the album Live – a killer, and one of three live sides McDuff cut for Prestige during the 60s – a monster session of stretched-out jazzy grooves, with many fine little dancers, and a raw soulful feel throughout! The group's one of Jack's best – as Red Holloway's tenor blows and hollers over the fingerpoppin' grooves delivered by a young George Benson on his first major guitar gig – and the soulful drums of Joe Dukes scatter across the place, taking the whole band into some incredible rhythms! Titles include cookin' live versions of "Rock Candy", "Sanctified Samba", "Undecided", and "A Real Goodun'". Live At The Jazz Workshop features a group that's one of Jack's best ever – a lineup that includes the twin tenors of Red Holloway and Harold Vick, plus incredibly sharp guitar from a young George Benson, and some of the most unique soul jazz drum work you'll ever hear – courtesy of the amazing Joe Dukes. Despite their individual strengths, which might make this whole thing an ego-fest – all players fit perfectly into place on the album's hard wailing batch of groovers, and groove together with a sympathetic energy that's simply amazing! Titles include a great remake of "Jive Samba", plus "Dink's Blues", "Grease Monkey", "Passing Through", and "Vas Dis". This is the kind of thing live recording equipment was made for! CD

VariousThat'll Flat Git It! Volume 40 – Rockabilly & Rock N Roll From The Vaults Of MGM, Cub, & Metro Records ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 20.99
MGM Records was mostly a pop label during the 50s – but the company was also home to Hank Williams, and had a great ear for hillbilly and country artists too – which led to the surprisingly strong streak of rockabilly numbers that you'll hear in this set! Only a few of these artists ended up as bigger names at the time – and most are the sort that were recorded briefly for a company like MGM – given some top-shelf treatment in the studio, but no promotion out in the world – leaving rare nuggets like this to only get properly discovered by a collection like this! The package is another great feather in the cap of this fantastic long-running series – one that's only seemed to dig deeper and get better as the years move on – as you'll hear in the set list of 32 tracks that include "We've Got Some Dreaming To Do" by Rita Faye, "Shake My Hand" by Jack Turner, "Bandstand Baby" by Jan & Jerry, "The Customary Thing" by Johnny Rivers, "Makin Up With You" by Gary Walker, "Doin My Time" by Bill Flagg, "Runaway Heart" by Gary Walker, "Doubt" by George McCormick, "I Ain't Gonna Waste My Time" by Don Gibson, "Rockin Piano Outta Tune Guitar" by Don Ruby, "Teen Age Rebel" by Arthur Smith, "Troubles" by Billy Jack Willis, "I Didn't Mean It" by Rocky Scott, and "Wicked" by Ronnie Isle & The Blisters.
