✨✧ Blossom Dearie/Bobby JasparAdorable Blossom Dearie (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s. New Copy 3CD ... Just Sold Out!
A great look at the earliest years of the lovely Blossom Dearie – and a set that also features a surprising amount of work from reedman Bobby Jaspar, who was making big waves on the Paris jazz scene at the same time the young Blossom was living in France! CD1 features the pair together – a lovely set of duos with Bobby on flute and Blossom on piano, pulled from a rare 7" EP – which is then followed by a set of piano instrumentals lead by Dearie, from the album Jazz Sweet – a French-only release! The CD then follows with Blossom's great vocal jazz group The Blues Stars Of France – with tracks from both their first album and their rare EP – great vocal harmony numbers of bebop tunes. CD2 features Blossom's famous self-titled album for Verve – a great American debut – but then follows with lots more rare material, including a Blue Stars 7" single, a rare Dave Lambert & Buddy Stewart 78rpm single, and even other vocal tracks by Annie Ross and King Pleasure. CD3 mostly features material that focuses on the talents of Bobby Jaspar on flute – some under his own leadership, plus more with other artists and groups, including work with singer Helen Merrill, guitarist Rene Thomas, and trombonist JJ Johnson. 75 tracks in all – and a booklet of notes!

Herbie Mann & Bobby JasparFlute Souffle ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good+ ... $28.99
A surprisingly great album – one that features Herbie and Bobby trading flutes and tenor, blowing long solos in a set that gives them plenty of room to work! The album only features four long tracks – "Let's March", "Tel Aviv", "Somewhere Else", and "Chasing The Bird" – blown in the open-ended mode that made some of the best Prestiges sides from the time so great. Joe Puma plays guitar, Tommy Flanagan is on piano, and rhythm is by Wendell Marshall and Bobby Donaldson. LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label 50th Street NYC pressing with deep groove, RVG stamp, and AB etch.)

✨✧ Bobby JasparBobby Jaspar (aka Jeux De Quartes) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Barclay/Sam Records (France), 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really special album from Belgian reedman Bobby Jaspar – a rare late 50s record that features some of his best work of the decade on flute! The session's got Bobby playing with great backings on vibes by Fats Sadi and Michel Hausser – both of whom use the instrument in ways that resonate strongly with the modern tones in Jaspar's phrasing – and the great Kenny Clarke is on drums, with bass from either Paul Rovere or Jimmy Merrit, plus additional percussion from Humberto Canto. There's a light groove on most numbers – kind of a lyrical swing that's perfect for the flute and vibes! Titles include "Le JAMF", "Speak Low", "Doxology", "Jeux De Quartes", "Chasing The Bird", and "Misterioso". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000! Beautiful heavy vinyl pressing – with a flipback cover, just like the original.)

A great Japanese release – with vintage 1953 material from Lars Gullin – on tracks that include "The Front", "The Boy Next Door", "Hershey Bar", "Ablution", and "Lady Fingers".

JJ JohnsonJ Is For Jazz ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $22.99
Nicely sharp sounds from the great JJ Johnson – a set that has the trombonist really honing his edge on a host of tight, short tracks – with a vibe that almost recalls his initial bop recordings on Blue Note and Prestige! The style here is a bit more sophisticated – definitely with an ear towards the modern directions that JJ was exploring in the 50s – but the sound is also nicely spontaneous, with more focus on improvisation between group members than larger arrangements – quite nice, given that the group features excellent tenor from Bobby Jaspar on tenor – and either Tommy Flanagan or Hank Jones on piano, Percy Heath or Wilbur Little on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Tracks are short, and titles include "Overdrive", "Cube Steak", "Chasin The Bird", and "Solar". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing with deep groove.)

JJ JohnsonReally Livin ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the hippest, hardest albums that trombonist JJ Johnson ever cut for Columbia – a session we'd rank right up there with his amazing JJ Inc record, and like that one a really cooking hardbop record that maybe even rivals the best on Blue Note and Prestige at the time! As with that gem, the strength here is really the group – not just tremendous trombone from JJ, but great work from Nat Adderley on trumpet, Bobby Jaspar on tenor and flute, Cedar Walton on piano, Spanky DeBrest on bass, and Albert Heath on drums – all working with a soaring, soulful energy that's a lot more hardbop heavy than you might expect from JJ Johnson on some of his other projects for the label. Titles include "Me Too", "Decision", "Stardust", "Sidewinder", "Speak Low", and "Red Cross". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 6 eye pressing, with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

A wonderfully mellow record by John Lewis – recorded with some great European jazzmen!

The tracks are long, and a number of them also feature a string quartet behind the jazz group. Titles include "Monday In Milan", "Danielle In The Lion's Den", "In A Crowd", and "Winter Tale".

Herbie MannFlute Flight ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Better than you might think – and a nice set of flute-oriented hardbop that has Herbie Mann playing next to Belgian flautist Bobby Jaspar! The pair of them trade off lines in a couple of long tracks that have that Prestige "blowin' session" feel to them, with lots of spare rhythm playing in the back that lets the soloists wander amply in the front – and Jaspar takes over on main flute duties on some other tracks too. Other players include Tommy Flanagan, Joe Puma, Eddie Costa, and Doug Watkins – and tracks include "Bo Do", "Solacium", "Flute Bass Blues", and "Flute Bob". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Blossom DearieMy Gentleman Friend ... CD
Verve/Universal, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A magical exercise in understatement – and one of Blossom's best albums for Verve! The late 50s session features Blossom back in the US and working with a small combo that includes Bobby Jaspar on flute, Ray Brown on bass, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Ed Thigpen on drums – all grooving with Blossom's vocals and piano in a spare, yet swinging approach to jazz! The tracks are touched with those wonderful little touches and sweetly-voiced moments that always make Blossom's records better than the rest – and titles include "Little Jazz Bird", "Gentleman Friend", "Boum", "L'Etang", and "Chez Moi".

EmArcy, Early 50s. Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare set from pianist Bernard Peiffer, leading a hip sextet that includes horn players Roger Guerin, and Bobby Jaspar – through a set of tightly arranged tracks that are sort of a mix of west coast cool jazz and Swedish postwar modern. Francy Boland arranged the 8 tunes – and tracks include "Strip Tease", "Paris Je T'Aime . . . D'Amour", "Who Is Me", and "Frozen Feet". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Francoise Hardy/Sacha DistelFrancoise Hardy/Canta Per Voi In Italiano/Swinging Jazz Guitarist (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A very cool little package – one that's got one CD of early work by French singer Francois Hardy – and two more CDs that feature lots of fantastic jazz material from Sacha Distel! CD1 features Hardy at her early best – singing blue-tinged French pop on both her debut album, and on a special album recorded in Italian – which features backings by Enzio Leoni, and tunes that are a nice variation from her better-known French material – especially as a number of tracks are reworked Italian versions of tunes from the first album! Titles include "Ca A Rate", "Oh Oh Cheri", "Il Est Parti Un Jour"," J'Suis D'Accord", "C'Est A L'Amour Auquel Je Pense", "L'Eta Dell'Amore", "Ci-Sto", "Per Tanto Tempo", "L'Amore Va", and "Quelli Della Mia Eta". The real treat here might be the music by Sacha Distel, though – as the artist is also known as a French pop singer, with many hits – but works here as a jazz guitarist, with a strongly chromatic sound! Amidst his vocal recordings, Sacha made a fair number of early jazz albums too – and nearly all of them are here on the set. The package features the EP Hommage A Django, with arrangements by Claude Bolling; another EP done in co-leadership with reedman Bobby Jaspar; performances with the Bobby Jaspar All Stars at Club Saint Germain; a quartet date with guitarist Jean-Pierre Sasson; Distel's famous album with pianist John Lewis, which also features great tenor from Barney Wilen; the very rare Jazz Today record, with trombone, arrangements, and songs by Billy Byers; and a few tracks from the soundtrack to Roger Vadim's Pride chapter of The Seven Deadly Sins. 36 Distel tracks in all – and 22 more by Hardy – all with a nice booklet of notes!

✨✧ JJ JohnsonJJ Johnson In Sweden 1957 ... LP
Marshmallow (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
JJ Johnson in Sweden, but a set that also features some American tracks too – and European reedman Bobby Jaspar is on all of the material from both sides of the Atlantic! The core of the collection has a group recorded in the Karlaplan Studio in Stockholm, with better sound than just another live recording from overseas – and the group features JJ on both trombone and trombonium, with Bobby Jaspar on tenor and flute, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Wilbur Little on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – on titles that include "Thou Swell", "Undecided", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "Night In Tunisia", and "Never Let Me Go". Next are a few more tracks with the same group, but recorded at the Red Hill Inn in New Jersey – on titles that include "Solar", "It's All Right With Me", and "Thad Ben Wess". Last are some takes on Charlie Parker material by the combo – a few variations on "Chasin The Bird". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 999! Heavy vinyl, and heavy tip-on cover!)

✨✧ JJ JohnsonDial J J 5 ... LP
Columbia, 1957. Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of JJ's best from the late 50s – a tightly crackling hardbop set, recorded very much in the manner of his classic JJ Inc album! The sound here is a bit more compact overall – with some shorter tracks that really allow Johnson to display his keen sense of economy on his horn, while working in a burning mode that recalls some of his best bop sides from the early years – particularly his work on Blue Note. Bobby Jaspar's in the frontline with JJ – playing both tenor and flute – and rhythm is from a trio that features Tommy Flanagan on piano, Wilbur Little on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Jones' touch on the kit gives the album a nicely dancing feel throughout – and is a real reminder of his simple genius in an early setting like this. Titles include "Bird Song", "Blue Haze", "Old Devil Moon", "Tea Pot", "Barbados", "Cette Chose", and "So Sorry Please". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 6 eye pressing with deep groove, matrix ending in 1A. Cover has a split top seam, some wear, and aging.)
