Bunky GreenPlayin' For Keeps ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Tremendous work from an alto player with a very unique conception – a player who was unlike Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt, or some of his precursors on the instrument – and instead really took off in bold new directions, like Lou Donaldson or fellow Chicagoan Sonny Cox in the mid 60s! Bunky's got a very sharp edge on his horn – one that's deft and skillful, but never too boppish. Instead, he really uses space and timing to carve out a new sort of groove – one that's punctuated slightly by the rhythms of the combo, but which also firmly takes its cue from Bunky's own forcefully blown horn. Players here include Cleveland Eaton on bass, Willie Pickins on piano, and Harold Jones on drums – and titles include "Playin For Keeps", "Mi Compasion", "Brazilano", "Mama Looka Boo Boo", and "What Can I Do". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono blue fade label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a cutout hole, light surface wear, and a name in pen.)

Bunky GreenTransformations ... LP
Vanguard, 1977. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Funky Bunky from Chicago, with backing from Al Dailey on piano, Billy Butler and Carl Lynch on guitar, Wilbur Bascomb on bass, Jimmy Johnson on drums, Al Chalk on percussion, and Jeff Bova on ARP string ensemble and ARP 2600. The sound's quite different from his Cadet albums – but not bad overall, kind of a smooth jazz funk approach. Tracks include "Funk Ain't a Word", "Chillon", and "The Lady from Ancona". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a cutout hole.)

Elvin JonesTime Capsule ... CD
Vanguard/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A real standout in the 70s catalog of Elvin Jones – for a number of key reasons! First up, the set's got more of an electric vibe than usual – thanks to Fender Rhodes from Kenny Barron and guitar from Ryo Kawasaki, who really help shape the sound of the set! Second, production is by Ed Bland – who does a masterful job of blending soul, spirit, and harder-edged jazz modes – on tunes that often have a nice modal vibe at the core! The group also features excellent alto work from Bunky Green – who really sparkles strongly throughout, and who also wrote more than half the material on the album. Guests include Frank Wess on flute, Frank Foster on soprano, and George Coleman on tenor – and titles include "Frost Bite", "Digital Display", "Moon Dance", "Time Capsule", and "Spacing". CD

Ben SidranDon't Let Go ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Tight funky jazz from vocalist Ben Sidran – still very much in his best early mode, and playing with a really raw sound overall! Ben's vocals are in that down-home Mose Allison mode, but the real charm is the music – which features funky drums by Clyde Stubblefield, the man responsible for the legendary break on James Brown's "Funky Drummer" – plus great playing by Chicago talents Sonny Seals on tenor, Bunky Green on alto, and Phil Upchurch on bass. Ben's piano is pretty great too – especially on the funky tracks – as it comes across with a hard left side sort of sound that really makes for a wonderful groove! Key titles include "Snatch", "The Funky Elephant", "The Foolkiller", "Fat Jam", and "Hey Hey Baby" – which has a great funky break! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has a small cutout hole, and a tiny bit of pen in one corner – but this is a very nice copy overall.)

✨✧ Eddie HarrisLost Album Plus The Better Half ... CD
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible work by the great Eddie Harris – an album that was initially recorded for Vee Jay during his early tenure at the label, but not issued for years! The album's one of Eddie's greatest from the time – a really far-reaching blend of soul jazz, hardbop, and some of the more exotic influences running through the Chicago scene from whence he came. Two tracks on the album are especially long groovers – "Cuttin Out" and "Shakey Jake" – both in the 15 minute mark, and extended jammers with Ira Sullivan on trumpet, Bunky Green on alto, and Melvin Rhyne on organ. The first two tracks on the set feature Eddie in a lineup with Willie Pickens, Raphael Don Garrett, and Ira Sullivan – on the modal groovers "The Dancing Bull" and "Antidote". And the last 4 tracks on the CD are pulled from the album "Half & Half" – an 8 track release that initially featured 4 tunes with Eddie blowing with a vocal group, and these other 4 that have him working with a very hip group that includes Charles Stepney on piano, Melvin Jackson on bass, Joe Dorio on guitar, and Marshall Thompson on drums. Titles include "Half & Half", "KC Blues", "Lawrence Of Arabia", and "Yea Yea Yea". CD
(Out of print, promotional stamp on CD.)

✨✧ Star-TelsExterminator Man/What More Can I Ask For ... 7-inch
Lamarr, Late 60s. Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy Chicago soul group single! "Exterminator" is a sort of Temps-ish track about bugs – kind of a political number about the vermin in the ghetto! "What More" is even better – a fantastic group harmony track with a deep feeling, sweet vocals, and great production by Burgess Gardner. It's a wonderful late-nite cut – and it's "Bunky's Pick" too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Plays with pops and some surface noise.)

✨✧ Elvin Jones, Clark Terry, James Moody & OthersSummit Meeting ... CD
Vanguard/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great session of all-star work by artists who were recording for Vanguard Records in the 70s – a crack lineup that features Elvin Jones on drums, James Moody on tenor, Clark Terry on trumpet and flugelhorn, Roland Prince on guitar, and Bunky Green on alto sax! The group also gets some non all-star help on rhythm from Albert Dailey on piano and keyboards, Angel Allende on percussion, and David Williams on bass – players who really help flesh out the groove, and keep things from just being more in an old school blowing session style. The great Ed Bland produced, and clearly had a hand in the overall sound – as there's moments here that recall his work for Perception Records – and tunes include a great one by Bland, and two more by Green – titles that include "Moody Magic", "Blues For Clark", "Summit Song", "Jones", and "Tee Pee Music".
