✨✧ Cat AndersonEllingtonia (ALA pressing) ... LP
ALA, 1959. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
Quite an obscure date from trumpeter Cat Anderson – done for the tiny Wynne label in 1959, and in a great small group approximation of the Duke Ellington spirit! Anderson's trumpet is set nicely in a very hip little group – with players who include Ray Nance on violin, Quentin Jackson on trombone, Budd Johnson on tenor sax, Rudy Powell on alto, Leroy Lovett on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Sam Woodyard on drums. The tracks are mostly Ellington standards, but are often done with a looser sort of feel than familiar takes – more small combo and open, in a way that really makes us appreciate Cat's skills for putting the set together. Titles include "Like Dig", "Chelsea Bridge", "The Mexican Bandit", "Lovelinnessence", "Between Some Place Goin No Place", and "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s pressing, still sealed with a hole at the top right. Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Benny CarterBenny Carter – Live & Well In Japan ... LP
Pablo, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
A live set very much in classic Verve mode – produced by Benny himself, and recorded in Tokyo in 1977 with a group that includes Budd Johnson on tenor and soprano, Cecil Payne on baritone, Cat Anderson and Joe Newman on trumpet, Britt Woodman on trombone, Nat Pierce on piano, Mudell Lowe on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Harold Jones on drums. Tracks are long, and titles include "Them There Eyes", "It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing", and "Squatty Roo". LP, Vinyl record album

Gil EvansOut Of The Cool (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Impulse, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 34.99 On May 14, 2021
A pivotal session for Gil Evans – one that brought his genius to the American public strongly and successfully, without the help of Miles Davis! Sure, Gil had recorded albums as a leader before this one – but the sparkling quality of this set is right up there with the charts he handled for Miles, and the quality of the players in the group make the performance every bit as great. Gil's band includes trumpeter Johnny Coles, plus Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, Budd Johnson on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar. Titles include "Stratusphunk", "Sunken Treasure", "La Nevada", and a great reading of Kurt Weil's "Bilbao Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Part of the Verve/Acoustic Sounds series!) This item will not be delivered to you before Friday, May 14.

✨✧ Coleman HawkinsBody & Soul ... CD
Bluebird/RCA, Late 30s/1940s/Mid 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A nice overview of Coleman Hawkins' career in a great 2LP set, containing material recorded between 1939 and 1947, and later work recorded in 1956. Most of the early work is in a wonderful small group format that lets Hawkins' tenor really come to the forefront. Other players on the sessions include Benny Carter, JC Higginbotham, Allen Eager, Peter Brown, and Budd Johnson – and titles include "Half Step Down Please", "Bouncing With Bean", "Meet Doctor Foo", and "Jumping For Jane". The later work features the orchestra of Billy Byers, including soloists Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, and Hank Jones. Coleman's the main blower, though – and the arrangements have a solid base that lets him open up in that exploratory tone he was crafting during the time. And although tracks are short, there's a heck of a lot of soul packed into them – recorded with impeccable quality, much more so than earlier sides. Titles include "The Essence of You", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Dinner For One Please, James", and "Little Girl Blue". CD

Earl HinesUp To Date With Earl Hines ... LP
RCA, 1965. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of the many nice sides that Hines made during the 60s, when he was being rediscovered by the labels, and touted as a traditionalist who was still working to expand his style. The group's here are nice and small, and Hines trio is augmented by either Budd Johnson or Ray Nance on most tracks. With the tracks "Linger Awhile", "Hour Of Parting", "But Not For Me", and "Father's Freeway". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove.)

Quincy JonesGreat Wide World Of Quincy Jones (Trip) ... LP
Mercury/Trip, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Quincy's world is great and wide indeed – and even at this early point in his career, he was displaying a wonderful talent for bringing in bits from all sources! The album's essentially a straight jazz set, but it's got some great exotic touches that are in keeping with the "world" theme and the globe-trotting titles on the set. The group's excellent too – with players that include Sahib Shihab, Budd Johnson, Les Spann, Lee Morgan, and Phil Woods – all working through hip arrangements by Al Cohn, Bill Potts, and Ernie Wilkins. Titles include "Ghana", "Air Mail Special", "Chant Of The Weed", "Eesom", and "I Never Has Seen Snow". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Quincy JonesLive In Paris – 14 Mars 1961 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1961. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Hard-driving live work from Quincy Jones – material recorded during one of the most productive, creative years of his large jazz ensemble! Material is from a very hip all-star group – and in addition to the sorts of tracks that Quincy was doing for ABC and Mercury during the period, there's also some longer, extended tunes that really showcase the growing complexity of Quincy's music – and that visionary quality that would make him one of the hippest bandleaders in the world by the end of the 60s! Players include Sahib Shihab on baritone, Phil Woods on alto, Budd Johnson and Eric Dixon on tenor, Freddie Hubbard and Benny Bailey on trumpets, Melba Liston and Curtis Fuller on trombones, Les Spann on guitar and flute, Patti Brown on piano, Stu Martin on drums, and Patato Valdes on congas – and long tracks include extended takes on "Stolen Moments"," Africana", and "Banja Luka" – plus other titles that include "Gwan Train", "Moanin", "Solitude", "Caravan", "Boy In The Tree", and "Summertime".

Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Plays Hip Hits (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1963. Used ... $39.99
One of Quincy Jones' best for Mercury Records in the 60s – a very groovy record that was done with a feel that's somewhere in between his Big Band Bossa album and his best 60s soundtrack work! The format is simple – Quincy picks a sweet batch of jazz semi-hits from the early 60s, plays them with a nice mix of soul jazz arrangements, and works with a great ensemble filled with wonderful players – including Roland Kirk, Budd Johnson, Seldon Powell, James Moody, and Jerome Richardson on reeds; Lalo Schifrin and Patti Brown on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Melba Liston on trombone – plus lots of great percussion at the bottom, helping bring some Latin energy to the grooves at points. Tunes are familiar, but all given a great Quincy Jones twist – and titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Jive Samba", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Bossa Nova USA", and "Watermelon Man". CD

✨✧ Count BasieBasie At Birdland ... LP
Roulette, 1961. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set from Count Basie – recorded during the height of his years at Roulette! The back cover of the record proclaims that "Basie Is Back Home" – clearly a bit by Birdland to lay claim to being the Count's home address, which is a bit of a challenge to his KC roots! Whatever the back story, though, the set's a nice one – swinging hard in that completely tight 60s mode, with a great lineup that includes Frank Foster and Budd Johnson on tenor, Thad Jones on trumpet, Bennie Powell on trombone, and Freddie Green on guitar – a really great group who definitely make the record a cooker! Tracks include "Good Time Blues", "Segue In C", "Little Pony", "Discommotion", and "Whirly Bird", which has a vocal by Jon Hendricks! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny StittBroadway Soul ... LP
Colpix, 1966. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost Sonny Stitt session from the 60s – but wonderfully swinging, and with a groove that really works well! The album's a set of Broadway tunes played jazz-wise – but in the hands of Stitt, they come up wonderfully – stretching out with soulful intensity that's mighty nice, amidst a larger ensemble that makes for a nice contrast from some of Sonny's smaller group sessions! Stitt plays both alto and tenor – and the group features some excellent other hornmen in the lineup – Zoot Sims, Jerome Richardson, and Budd Johnson on tenor saxes, Phil Woods on alto, and Thad Jones on trumpet – plus Walter Bishop Jr on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. Stitt's in the lead here – blowing cleanly and confidently, much more soaringly than on earlier records, and without the tricks of later electric ones. Titles include "Gimme Some", "Night Song", "Better All The Time", "You'd Better Love Me", and "Loads Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing. Cover has one slightly bumped corner, but the rest is great.)

✨✧ Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, James Moody, & OthersColorado Jazz Party – Recorded Live At Dick Gibson's 1971 Colorado Jazz Party ... LP
MPS, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best live jam sessions on MPS – a really freewheeling performance, filled with an assemblage of all star players! As the title indicates, the set was recorded live in Colorado in the early 70s – and all titles here are quite long, quite lively, and filled with great solo space – taken strong advantage of by some of the best players here, some of whom didn't get to record in this format much at the time. There's a mostly swing-based style going on here, but there's also a bit of bop as well, depending on the players on each track. Players work in various groupings, and artists include Carl Fontana, Kai Windingk, Urbie Green, and Trummy Young on trombone; Zoot Sims, James Moody, and Flip Phillips on tenor; Victor Feldman and Dick Hyman on piano; Budd Johnson on baritone and soprano sax; and Mousie Alexander and Alan Dawson on drums. Titles include "The Hymn", "On The Trail", "Just Squeeze Me", "Oleo", "Emily", "Undecided", and "Lover Come Back To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mary Lou WilliamsMary Lou Williams (Black Christ Of The Andes) ... CD
Mary, 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album – and one of the best records you'll ever find by Mary Lou Williams! The record's a mixture of jazz and spiritual themes, and it features Mary Lou's piano set in some super-hip jazz arrangements that include players like Grant Green, Budd Johnson, Larry Gales, Melba Liston, Ben Tucker, and Percy Heath. The bass and piano work is amazing, and many tracks have a dark groove that's very subtle, but very compelling. About half the tunes feature hip choral vocalizing – in the mode of some of the Donald Byrd or Max Roach albums from the same time – mostly handled by the group of Howard Roberts. Includes the classic groover "A Grand Nite For Swinging", plus "A Fungus Amongus", "Anima Christi", "Miss DD", "The Devil", "It Ain't Necessarily So", and "My Blue Heaven". Great stuff all around – and even better than we're describing it! This CD issue features the original Mary Records cover art – different than the Saba/MPS or later Smithsonian CD versions. CD
(Special limited CD – pressed up for us by the Smithsonian Folkways label. Comes with original cover artwork, and the CD also features a PDF file with the original liner notes and other materials from the original record release.)

✨✧ Benny GolsonModern Touch ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The modern touch indeed! You can't get any more classic Benny Golson than this – a sublime late 50s album that features Benny with a sextet, working out amazing versions of the sorts of material that set him apart from every other jazz arranger of the time! The tracks here are complicated, yet have a rootsy soulfulness that makes them instantly compelling – and Benny's tone on tenor sax is sharp and angular, yet also has a raspiness that gives it a degree of honesty you wouldn't expect from a budding young modernist. The rest of the players – Max Roach, Paul Chambers, Wynton Kelly, JJ Johnson, and Kenny Dorham – are equally great, too – and amidst Benny's arrangements, they come together as if they'd been playing in this format for years! Titles include "Out Of The Past", "Venetian Breeze", "Reunion", "Hymn To The Orient", and "Blues On Down". CD

✨✧ Blossom Dearie/Bobby JasparAdorable Blossom Dearie (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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!

VariousKickin Presents Mighty Mainstream – DJ's Choice 1965 to 1973 ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
A really fantastic collection of funky jazz from the Mainstream Records label – a funky powerhouse that was maybe only second to CTI in the early 70s – and which had a great way of moving forward older soul jazz players to a sweet electric sound for the new generation! The choice of cuts here is superb – some of our favorites from Mainstream, including a lot of lesser-known gems from their more obscure LPs – packed in a collection that runs for nearly 80 minutes in length, with never a letup on the funky moments! Titles include "El Torro Poo Poo" by Charles Kynard, "Red Clay" by Jack Wilkins, "House Of The Rising Funk" by Afrique, "Naima" by Charles McPherson, "Equipoise" by Roy Haynes, "Quadrivium" by Hadley Caliman, "Mambo Au Go Go" by Joe Cain, "Hot Peppers" by Mauricio Smith, "Mi Hermano" by Blue Mitchell, "Inner City Blues" by Sarah Vaughan, "M'Bassa" by Lamont Johnson, "The Loud Minority (edit)" by Frank Foster, "Babylon" by Buddy Terry, and "Ain't Got Nobody" by Maxine Weldon.
