Tony ScottModern Art Of Jazz ... LP
Seeco, Late 50s. Very Good ... $9.99
One of Tony Scott's best straight jazz sessions of the 50s – a wonderfully done small combo set that shows Scott beginning to move from straight bop into more modern modes! The album features Tony on baritone sax and clarinet – blowing with a well-chosen group of fresh modern talents that include Sahib Shihab, Bill Evans, Henry Grimes, and Paul Motian. Clark Terry also plays a bit of trumpet, but it's the Evans/Motian combination that seems to work the most magic – opening up the rhythms a lot, and really pulling some spacious sounds out of Scott's horn. Titles include "Five", "She's Different", "Blues For 3 Horns", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", and "Tenderly". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove and DBH etch. Cover has a small split in the top seam.)

Clef, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Great small combo work from Gene Krupa – one of his excellent sides for Verve during the 50s! Players here include the great Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor, Charlie Shavers on trumpet, and Bill Harris on trombone – and rhythm is from Teddy Wilson on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Krupa on drums – a swinging little unit that keeps plenty of room for warm solo lines in the set! Titles include "Who's Rhythm", "Second Helping Blues", "Bloozy Woozy", "Meddle My Minor", and "Windy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy black label Clef pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has light wear and an index sticker.)

✨✧ Plunky & Oneness Of JujuLive In Paris ... CD
Corner Shop, 2006. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
One of the best recordings we've heard in years from saxophonist Plunky Branch – and one of the few to really capture the glory of his 70s classics with Oneness Of Juju! Given the billing of this set, it's clear that the older soul jazz spirit of Oneness is very strong in the conception of the set – and the live performance features many classics from the group's 70s albums on Black Fire, played here with a good live energy and a strong sense of soul that's way way better than the smoother jazz Plunky has been putting down in recent studio sets. The lineup here is a small combo one – with Tanya Lazenby-Jackson on keyboards and vocals – working alongside Plunky's saxes, plus additional keyboards, bass, and lots of percussion. We'd even go so far as to say that the material here easily stands with the classic and all-too-small Oneness Of Juju catalog from the 70s – and the double-length 2CD set features 22 tracks that include "Up & Down", "Be About The Future", "Follow Me", "River Luvrite", "Space Jungle Luv", "Nia", "Sex Machine", "Kool/One World Music", "World Wide Party", and "Plastic (Is Easy To See Through)".

Ornette ColemanArt Of The Improvisers ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s/1970. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Great lost work from Ornette Coleman – material recorded in New York and LA during the years 1959 through 1961 – never issued at the time, but pulled together in this wonderful package at the start of the 70s! Although not recorded as an official album, the record stands easily with the best Ornette had to offer at Atlantic Records – and all tracks here have that sense of sharpness, rhythm, and timing that made the Coleman combo one of the most exciting of the time. Players include Ornette on alto throughout, plus Don Cherry on trumpet and pocket trumpet, Ed Blackwell and Billy Higgins on drums, and Charlie Haden (mostly), Scott LaFaro, and Jimmy Garrison on bass. All tracks are originals by Ornette – and titles include "Moon Inhabitants", "The Fifth of Beethoven", "Circle with a Hole In the Middle", and "The Alchemy of Scott La Faro", featuring the great late bassist, Scott La Faro!

✨✧ Quinn Harris & The MastermindsAll In The Soul ... CD
Reynolds/Undercover Brother, 1970. Used ... $7.99
An obscure west coast soul set from Quinn Harris – a well-titled "mastermind" with a great ear for a gritty groove! The set's got a really unique sort of feel – not just straight funk, but not straight soul either – kind of a hip blend of modes that often includes some warmly jazzy touches next to deeper soul vocals from soul sister Lady Bianca! Harris directs the group, and plays sax, flute, piano, and organ – all of which are used to nice effect in an array of different modes – especially the flute, which is often mixed with a stepping bassline to create a blackspolitation sort of groove. There's a small horn section in the combo, and they play without cliche – just the right sort of coloring to shade in the tunes without overpowering them in the usual horn section way. Billy Street handles male vocals on a few other tracks in the set, and titles include "Stop Telling Me Lies", "All In The Soul", "We Got To Get Together", "Never Too Hard To Bear", "Doctor Of Love", and "This Summer". CD also features bonus 7" versions of "Stop Telling Me Lies" and "We Got To Get Together". CD
(Original Undercover Brother pressing – still sealed!)

Illinois JacquetSpectrum ... LP
Argo, 1965. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A pretty darn great little album from Jacquet – not his classic work, sure, but a wonderful session with some really great Argo/Cadet aspects! Side one features backing by a largeish group – arranged and led by Bert Keyes, and featuring Billy Butler and Eric Gale on guitars, Buddy Lucas on tenor, and an overall sound that's swinging, 60s, and very groovy. Side two features a hip soul jazz combo, with Russell Jacquet on trumpet and Patti Brown on piano – plus Candido on congas, kicking it up nicely underneath! Tracks are short and catchy, in a soul jazz mode that makes good use of Jacquet's tone – and titles include "Spanish Boots", "Elsie", "Now & Then", "Blue Horizon", "Big Music", and "Black Foot". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Argo pressing, with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Billy TaylorBilly Taylor Trio Vol 1 ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A flurry of fantastic recordings from the legendary Billy Taylor – material the pianist recorded for Prestige Records in the early 50s – at a time when he was really helping to transform the sound of the piano in jazz! These sides have Taylor showing that a small combo piano date can be just as exciting as a larger set with horns – and in a way, these recordings really helped move the instrument past some of the bluesier modes of 30s small group recordings, or some of the more cocktail-styled sounds of 40s instrumentalists. The trio formation is key to this – a great balance between the excellent bass of Earl May and drums of Charlie Smith – both of whom give things a lot of rhythmic intensity. Tracks on this first volume include "Man With A Horn", "Hey Lock", "Let's Get Away From It All", "Lover", and "All Too Soon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label 50th Street NYC pressing, with deep groove and RVG etch on one side. Cover has light wear and some discoloration from age.)

Sarah VaughanDuke Ellington Songbook Vol 2 ... LP
Pablo, 1979. Very Good ... $1.99
Sarah Vaughan takes on the work of Duke Ellington – almost presented here in a style that's similar to some of the Songbook albums on Verve from the 50s! Billy Byers handles most of the arrangements here – especially on the larger group numbers – but some tracks are also in a small combo mode, and are often the most interesting, because Sarah opens up with a looser feel than on some of the more "respectful" big group tracks. Titles on this second volume include "Black Butterfly", "Chelsea Bridge", "What Am I Here For", "Tonight I Shall Sleep", "Mood Indigo", "Everything But You", and "Rocks In My Bed".

✨✧ Braen/Raskovich/Kema (Alessandro Alessanadroni/Giuliano Sorgini/Giulia De Mutiis)Pawnshop EP ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A set that's billed as an EP, but which has more than enough funk and fuzz to top much longer soundtracks – thanks to great work from the legendary Braen/Raskovich studio combo! The group are really the brainchild of Alessandro Alessandroni – who plays guitar, bass, sitar, and even sings a bit – and Giuliano Sorgini – who handles drums, Hammond, and lots of percussion – both seasoned sound library maestros in their own right, but really set loose here under the guise of Braen to explore a unique blend of funk and psychedelia! The drums are amazing – truly heavy on most numbers, making for a super-funky set – and the use of moody guitar and sitar is wonderful, with lots of weird, wild shading – but always in a way that keeps things groovy throughout. Titles include "Please Don't Say No", "Carol", and both vocal and instrumental versions of the three tunes "My Shade", "Telegraph Is Callin", and "Laura What You Do". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 600 copies. Covers are variable in black and tan versions.)
