Duke EllingtonAnd His Mother Called Him Bill (Bluebird pressing) ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1968. Used ... $3.99
A nicely understated session that was recorded in honor of Billy Strayhorn – who'd passed away a few months before the recording. The set features all classic Strayhorn compositions – played in new versions by Duke and a group that includes Clark Terry, Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, Aaron Bell, and Jimmy Hamilton. The recording quality is great, and the sound of the album really makes old classics sparkle nicely once again! Titles include "UMMG", "Blood Count", "Boo Dah", "Rain Check", "Day Dream", "All Day Long", and "Lotus Blossom", done in a haunting solo piano version by Duke! CD

Duke EllingtonFar East Suite – Special Mix (Bluebird) ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1966. Used ... $5.99
One of Ellington's greatest albums of the 60s – and a record tinged with Eastern themes and darkly angular modern arrangements. The group here features Ellington stalwarts Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, Harry Carney, Cootie Williams, Mercer Ellington, and Rufus Jones – and the players work together tightly to craft the suite of tracks based on Ellington's impressions of recent travels through the Mid and Far East during the 60s. Titles include "Tourist Point Of View", "Isfahan", "Depk", "Mount Harissa", "Amad", "Agra", and "Blue Pepper". Plus, the CD reissue features 4 alternate takes not on the LP! CD

Charles MingusTijuana Moods (US expanded edition) ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1957. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Oh how we love this album – and we think it may well be the best album ever from Charles Mingus! The set was recorded in that magical Mingus year of 1957, but oddly not released until 1962 – missing some of the initial frenzy of his discovery during the Atlantic and Columbia years. But the album's actually a treasure that predates the better-known latter sides – with a sharpness and intensity that Mingus hardly ever matched again! The group is one of his strongest ever – with Shafi Hadi on alto, Clarence Shaw on trumpet, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and Bill Triglia on piano. There's a slight Latin vibe, as you might expect from the title – but it's very slight overall, and most of the tunes are in that sharply angular, fully expressive style that flowered most strongly for Mingus in the late 50s. There's not a wasted moment of music on the whole album – with tight solos and incredible rhythms that dominate every second of the extended tracks – and titles include "Dizzy Moods", "Flamingo", "Los Mariachis", "Ysabel's Tabel Dance", and "Tijuana Gift Shop". Plus, this 2CD set features a whopping 19 tracks added to the original album – with the bonus "A Colloquial Dream (aka Scenes In The City)", plus many alternates, breakdowns, and partial takes. A fitting tribute to this amazing album! CD

George Russell SmalltetJazz Workshop ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1957. Used ... $8.99
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".

Tommy FlanaganFlanagan's Shenanigans ... CD
Storyville (Denmark), 1993. New Copy ... On March 6, 2020
The title's a bit of a rough pun, but don't hold that against it – as the album's got pianist Tommy Flanagan nicely stretching out – expanding past his familiar trio mode on a few great tracks on the set! Make no mistake, the core trio is great – with help from Jasper Lundgaard on bass and Lewis Nash on drums – but the first three tracks on the set also feature the Jazzpar Windtet – a group of added reeds who bring a nice layer of color to the set, almost making us wish that Flanagan had recorded more in such a mode! Tenorist Jasper Thilo joins the group on one other number – leaving the rest as trio tracks – and titles include "Minor Mishap", "For Lena & Lennie", "Let's", "Tin Tin Deo", "The Balanced Scales", "Eclypso", and "Beyond The Bluebird".

✨✧ Robin KenyattaEncourage The People ... CD
Wolf/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Post-Atlantic work from Robin Kenyatta – but an album that follows in a very similar mode! This date was done for the Wolf subsidiary of TK Records, but it's got a very hip New York groove – one that's almost even more righteous than some of Robin's earlier work, with some excellent arrangements from Arthur Jenkins – who's managed to fill the set with a great sense of soul! Kenyatta's alto and soprano sax are set up with keyboards from Jenkins and Richard Tee, plus bass, guitar, percussion, and some great backing vocals at points – used sparingly, but in ways that almost remind us of Oneness Of Juju at some of their smoother moments. Kenyatta's reeds have a Plunky-like feel too – more inside than the Juju work of the mid 70s, but pointing towards Plunky's smoother sounds to come. Given that the vocal group features Gwen Guthrie, Vivian Cherry, and Patti Austin, you can bet they sound pretty sweet – and titles on the set include "Love Me", "Oh Oh Oh", "You", "Bluebird", and "Of Life & Love".

✨✧ Paul McCartney & WingsBand On The Run ... LP
Apple, 1973. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most brilliant moments of genius from Paul McCartney & Wings – and a set that has Paul working with the group in perfect album formation – able to craft enough songs that became hit singles, yet also fit the whole thing together in a superb sonic reality that made the whole thing even more wonderful as a full length record! The shift of moods, tones, and sounds are as varied as the choice of celebrities appearing with the group on the cover – and the interplay between Paul, Linda, and Denny Laine has really hit its stride – on titles that include one of our all-time Wings favorites, "Nineteen Hundred Eighty Five" – plus "Band On The Run", "Bluebird", "Jet", "Mrs Vanderbilt", "Let Me Roll It", "Mamunia", "No Words", and "Picasso's Last Words (Drink To Me)".

ABC, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic stuff from John Lee Hooker, and a record that's unlike any other he's ever done! The groove is very hard and funky, with tight drumbreaks and excellent basslines that you'd hardly expect to find on an album by a blues artist – jamming around with a tight groove that really makes us love the record! The guitar on the set is wonderfully scratchy – ripping up and down over heavy drums, with some nice horn touches to flesh the sound up – and wicked vocals from Hook that give the whole set a nice and nasty feel! The best cuts include "Make It Funky", "713 Blues", "714 Blues", and "Bluebird" – and the record's got some very nice breaks! LP, Vinyl record album

Bear Family (Germany), Late 30s/1940s. Used 6CDs ... Out Of Stock
The birth of a legend – and the birth of modern bluegrass too – served up here in a set of seminal recordings from the great Bill Monroe – all of which helped to take the music from the hill country out to the wider American mainstream! And by "mainstream", don't think we mean that the sides here are commercial – because they're all pretty raw and stripped-down –a nd feature amazing mandolin work from Bill, wonderful vocals – and early partnerships with Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs, and Chubby Wise! The box features all the early Monroe Brothers tracks for Bluebird, and later RCA and Columbia material too – plus dozens of alternates and unreleased tracks from the Columbia years too – in a package that features over 160 different recordings! The set also features a very deep biography of Monroe during these years – penned by the great Charles Wolfe – and comes with a heavy, LP-sized hardcover book that's filled with photos, record images, and a full discography too. CD
(Box has a very light bump in one corner, but this is a great copy overall.)

✨✧ VariousHeartworn Highways ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1976. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible document of the new wave of country sounds that bubbled up from the underground in the 70s – amazing new music that went far beyond the styles of Nashville, to encompass a big range of modes from Texas and other points south – penned and performed by musicians who'd have a huge influence for generations to come! This expanded set features music from the Heartworn Highways film – which provided a documentary of this new generation – and the songs are recorded in just the right sort of stripped-down, personal style to make the right qualities shine through instantly. The set still blows away just about any insurgent country sounds from later years – and titles include "That Old Time Feeling" by Guy Clark, "I Still Sing The Old Songs" by David Allen Coe, "Bluebird Wine" by Rodney Crowell, "Alabama Highway" by Steve Young, "Waiting Round To Die" by Townes Van Zandt, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" by Steve Young, "Darlin Commit Me" by Steve Earle, "The Black Label Blues" by Gamble Rogers, "Pancho & Lefty" by Townes Van Zandt, and "One For The One" by John Hiatt.
