Charlie Ventura & Charlie KennedyCrazy Rhythms ... CD
Savoy, 1945. Used ... $9.99
Tremendous tenor work from the mid 40s – a side each of Savoy singles done by Charlie Ventura and Charlie Kennedy, packaged here in a mid 50s album! Kennedy's featured on side one – playing with a small combo that includes Johnny Guarnieri on piano, and B DeArango on guitar – in a relaxed, open mode that's certainly swing-based, but shows some modern jazz inflections on the solos. Side two is even tighter – with Ventura hitting on all burners in a quartet with Arnold Ross on piano and Specs Powell on drums – playing with the fire that made him a strong link between many sides of the jazz spectrum at the time! Kennedy titles include "I'll See You In My Dreams", "Whispering", "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", and "I Can't Get Started" – and Ventura numbers include "Jackpot", "Big Deal", "Dark Eyes", and "Charlie Comes On".

Jackie & RoyJackie & Roy (plus Sing Baby Sing) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1955. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Two rare Storyville albums from the tremendous vocal team of Jackie & Roy – back to back in a single set! First up is the self titled Jackie & Roy – one of the first albums ever from the team of Jackie Caine and Roy Kral – and one of the best, too! The album's got a relaxed, open-ended approach to jazz vocals that already carries all the hallmarks of the Jackie & Roy style – wordless scatting on some tunes, playful lyrical interplay on others, and a focus on Jackie's ballad talents on some of the gentler numbers – all wrapped up in small combo backing that's sensitive, creative, and modern – yet never in a way that overwhelms the vocals. It's hard to match the poise, class, and cleverness of this one – and the album easily set a new standard for vocal jazz in the 50s! Titles include a few great early tunes by Tommy Wolf – the songwriter who would become so important for the pair – and backing is by Roy on piano, Barney Kessel on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Titles include "Let's Take A Walk Around The Block", "You Smell So Good", "Listen Little Girl", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "Bill's Bit", "Dahuud", "I Wish I Were In Love Again", and "Lover". Sing Baby Sing is sublime work from the duo of Jackie & Roy – a guy/gal vocal team, but one with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Both Jackie Cain and Roy Kral sing – and Roy also plays a mean piano, and writes a fair bit of the tunes too – really lively numbers that show off the bop-styled techniques they developed while working with Charlie Ventura – but with hipper, groovier lyrics – of the sort that are a key precursor to folks like Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg! Instrumentation on the set is great, too – a small combo with guitar from either Joe Rumero or Barry Galbraith – served up in a really great mix of tunes that includes "Season In The Sun", "Slowly", "Cheerful Little Earful", "Why Not Admit It", "You Are The One", and "Hook Line And Snare".

✨✧ Gene KrupaDrum Boogie ... LP
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little record that features Krupa in two modes – trio and sextet. The trio sides feature Teddy Napoleon on piano and Charlie Ventura on tenor and baritone on tracks that include "Stardust", "Perdido", "Drum Boogie", and "Fine's Idea" – and without a bass, there's a bit more freedom in the sound of these tunes than you might expect. The other two tracks on the set – "Capital Idea" and "Paradise" – feature a sextet with Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Teddy Wilson on piano, and Willie Smith on alto sax, and as with the rare bits of Smith's work from the time, his work on alto is worth the price of the album alone! LP, Vinyl record album
