Buddy RichBig Band Machine ... CD
Groove Merchant/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. Used ... $18.99
Pretty darn great stuff from Buddy Rich – despite his stupid haircut on the cover! The album's got Buddy working in a tight funky mode – with strong players like Steve Marcus on soprano and tenor, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Ray Armando on congas, Greg Kogan on piano, and Lloyd Michaels on trumpet – all of whom come together in a really solid, really hard hitting funky big band style! The best tracks are strongly driving, almost in a blacksploitation soundtrack mode – and titles include "Three Day Sucker", "Pieces Of Dreams", "Ease On Down The Road", and a pretty darn sublime 12 minute medley of tunes from The Who's "Tommy", done at a fast funky pace!

✨✧ Buddy RichKeep The Customer Satisfied (Jazz Heritage pressing with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Jazz Heritage, 1970. Used ... $5.99
Buddy certainly knew how to keep the customer satisfied – as you'll hear on this hip set of big band grooves, recorded by Buddy for Liberty Records in 1970. The set's got Buddy working with a tight group of younger players, in a mode that's not exactly funky, but which owes a lot to the funking up of the big band scene that was going on during the late 60s. There's electric bass underneath most of the cuts, and bubbly organ emerges from the horns on a good number of titles. Tracks include "Groovin Hard", "The Juicer Is Wild", "Long Day's Journey", "Celebration", "He Quit Me", and more. CD also includes bonus tracks "Body & Soul", "Happy Time", "Nitty Gritty", "Straight & Narrow", "Cornerstone", and an alternate take of "Groovin' Hard". CD

✨✧ Buddy RichSpeak No Evil ... LP
RCA, 1976. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the tightest 70s albums from Buddy Rich – a record that's got some smooth and soulful touches, and a groove that's quite different than most of his other work! Chicago soul maestro Richard Evans handled the arrangements for the record – and he's got a great way of making things groove, even with a larger groove – leaving plenty of space for key solos from players who include Jon Faddis on trumpet, Joe Farrell on tenor sax, Ross Trout on guitar, and Kenny Barron on electric piano! Most numbers are somewhat upbeat and clubby – like some of the funky fusion on the Kudu label from the time – and a few numbers feature chorus vocals from a trio of female soul singers that includes Rhetta Hughes, Vivian Cherry, and Lain Grooves. Titles include "Yearnin Learnin", "Speak No Evil", "Fight The Power", "Sneakin Up Behind You", and the great "How Long" – which features the famous "Betcha Got A Chick On The Side" sampled by Salt N Pepa!

✨✧ Buddy RichRichcraft (Trip) ... LP
Mercury/Trip, 1959. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tighter than usual for Buddy Rich at Verve – but still a great little set, thanks to some soulfully swinging arrangements from Ernie Wilkins – who was really at the top of his game at this point in his career! The lineup is filled with great players – including Phil Woods, Harry Edison, Al Cohn, and Benny Golson – and in a way, the record almost grooves with some of the same energy that Quincy Jones was bringing to his big band records of the time – save for a bit more emphasis on the drums! Titles include "Yardbird Suite", "Richcraft", "From The Sticks", "Song Of The Islands", and "Sweets Tooth". LP, Vinyl record album

Pacific Jazz, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hard and heavy side from Buddy, and true to his reputation and the title of the LP, he comes out swinging! The set features a top notch mid 60s group, and from the sound of the numbers on this set, ol' Buddy did need to hand out any of his famous lectures on the bus afterwards, with some crisp soloing and great ensemble playing. 8 tracks in all, including "Basically Blues", "The Critics Choice", "My Man's Gone Now", "Uptight (Everything's Alright)" and "Sister Sadie".

✨✧ Buddy RichVery Live At Buddy's Place ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard-swinging Buddy Rich from the prime early 70s years – not exactly an all-out funk affair, but still a great groover, with plenty of hip little big band numbers! The groove here is nice and lean – and Buddy and the group are working at Buddy's own club – hitting that trademark all-out Rich sound, but still leaving plenty of room for the soloists. The group's got some great soul jazz players – including Sonny Fortune on alto, Jack Wilkins on guitar, and Kenny Barron on piano – as well as some really smoking tenor work from Sal Nistico, who's always adaptable to a setting like this. The album's got a tasty version of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon", plus other nice tracks that include "Sierra Lonely", "Nica's Dream", "Billy's Bounce", "Cardin Blue" and "Jumpin At The Woodside". CD

✨✧ Buddy Rich & Max RoachRich Versus Roach ... LP
Mercury, 1959. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A legendary meeting of these two jazz talents – and knowing the famous temper of Buddy Rich, this probably really was a battle of the drummers! Kidding aside, though, the set's a very unusual one for Buddy – as the group here features players normally associated with Max Roach – a very cool lineup that includes Julian Priester on trombone, Tommy Turrentine on trumpet, and Stanley Turrentine on tenor – all of whom keep things cool, and bring in some great solo moments when needed! Rich also brings a few of his key men to the set, too – including Phil Woods on alto and Willie Dennis on trombone – on titles that include "Sleep", "The Casbah", "Limehouse Blues", and "Big Foot". LP, Vinyl record album

John McLaughlinDevotion ... CD
Celluloid/Movie Play, 1970. Used ... $9.99
An intensely jamming album from guitarist John McLaughlin – and a record that set a whole new tone for electric jazz in the 70s! The album was recorded shortly after McLaughlin's work with Miles Davis on Bitches Brew and Tony Williams on the first Emergency album – and in a way, it's a key piece of the jazz-rock fusion puzzle that has those two sets as cornerstones. McLaughlin's working here with keyboardist Larry Young from the Emergency group – playing both his usual organ on the record, plus a bit of electric piano – and the rest of the group includes bassist Billy Rich, plus superdrummer Buddy Miles – really giving a lot of power to the album's sound at the bottom! McLaughlin is getting into a bit of his mystic trip on the record, but is still playing with a lot of electric power here – plenty distorted and fuzzy on most numbers, and really jamming throughout! Titles include "Devotion", "Dragon Song", "Marbles", "Siren", "Don't Let The Dragon Eat Your Mother", and "Purpose Of When". CD

Zoot Sims & Bucky PizzarelliNirvana ... CD
Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 7, 2021
A really beautiful later album from Zoot Sims – one that might easily be overlooked, given its understated appearance on a sometimes-cheap label – but a record that really helps Zoot find whole new magic for the 70s! The date's nice and laidback – with great guitar from Bucky Pizzarelli, who himself is really a cut above here – a master of chromes, balancing out the sharply raspy tone that makes Sims' tenor so fantastic – with subtle but strong accompaniment on bass by Milt Hilton, and nicely restrained work by Buddy Rich on drums! The feel is maybe like some of Zoot's work on Pablo, but hipper too – and titles include "Memories Of You", "Summerset", "A Summer Thing", "Somebody Loves Me", and "Nirvana". CD

✨✧ Charlie Parker & Dizzy GillespieBird & Diz (Verve master edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic meeting of two giants from the early years of bop – altoist Charlie Parker and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie – brought together here in a session that Norman Granz would later list as one of the truest realizations of his vision for recording jazz music! Parker's sharp lines are a great contrast to the robust horn work of Diz – and the players work here with a rhythm section that features Thelonious Monk on piano, Curley Russell on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums. Titles include "Relaxin With Lee", "Leap Frog", "Oscar For Treadwell", and "Mohawk". The LP also includes a number of alternate takes, and has a nice photo of the 2 jazz giants on the cover.

✨✧ Buddy TateGroovin With Buddy Tate (Tate's Date/Groovin With Buddy Tate) ... CD
Prestige, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two swinging killers from the great Buddy Tate – a tenor talent with a sound to transcend generations! First up is the obscure Swingville album Tate's Date – a set that has Buddy working with Pat Jenkins on trumpet, Ben Richardson on alto and baritone, and Eli Robinson on trombone – all with rhythm from Sakik Hakim on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. The group's a bit fuller than the usual Swingville session, but Hakim's gentle approach to the piano makes for a nicely personal sort of feel here – one that touches the bolder horn passages with a good degree of sensitivity, and which pushes the group into plenty of playful riffs! Titles include "Blow Low", "Idling", "Me N You", and "No Kidding". Groovin With Buddy Tate is a very nicely grooving set from Buddy Tate – recorded in a mellow laidback way that has him soloing with room and a down-home spirit that you don't always find on some of his other albums from the time. Tate plays tenor and clarinet – and the interesting quintet includes Ronnell Bright on piano, Wally Richardson on guitar, and Roy Brooks on drums. Titles include "The Salt Mines", "A Lucky So & So","Blues For Trix", and "Overdrive". CD

Fantasy, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two albums back to back – both by this obscure and groovy group that featured Wes Montgomery's brothers (Buddy and Monk) on vibes and bass, plus Richie Crabtree on piano and Benny Barth on drums. The group had a piano/vibes sound that was clearly inspired by 50s work of the George Shearing Quintet or the MJQ – but given their roots in the Montgomery Brothers' Indianapolis soul jazz scene, the Mastersounds managed to swing a bit more than their contemporaries – going for a slightly exotic approach to jazz that also had lots of traces of the work of Horace Silver. The two albums on this set were both recorded in 1960 – and comprise a total of 13 tracks in all (one was omitted due to space restrictions on the CD) – with titles that include "Golden Earrings", "West Coast Blues", "Fink Fank Funk", "For Now", "Try It", and "It Could Happen To You".
