Art BlakeyGolden Boy ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Near Mint- ... $34.99
An obscure Jazz Messengers session – but a great one! The album is ostensibly a set of jazz versions of tunes from the musical Golden Boy, and the group this time is a larger one than usual – a total of 10 players, led by Blakey – and playing beautifully over arrangements from Wayne Shorter, Curtis Fuller, and Cedar Walton! The style's not any sort of clunky "jazz meets Broadway" mode, though – as the care taken by the artists involved help elevate the tunes, and the performance, to a whole new soulful level – hardly what you'd expect! The group features trumpet work from Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard, tenor from Wayne Shorter, alto from James Spaulding, trombone from Curtis Fuller, baritone from Charles Davis, piano from Cedar Walton, and bass from Reggie Workman – all very hip cats, working here with the same sort of large group textures you might hear on Freddie Hubbard's Body & Soul album from the same time, mixed with some more traditionally Blakey-led moments. Titles include "Yes I Can", "Theme From Golden Boy", "Lorna's Here", "This is The Life", and "There's A Party". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove.)

Earl HagenNew Interns ... LP
Colpix, 1964. Sealed ... $6.99
Nice little soundtrack, written as the follow-up to the 1962 film The Interns. Like that one, there's some nice party sequences here – easily jazzy numbers grooving along nicely, in the style of Hagen's best work of the 60s. Strings mix with jazzy rhythms and some strong instrumental solos, and overall, the soundtrack's really a strong cut above the usual one for this type of movie – and filled with some really great jazz-based tracks. Titles include "Goodbye To Nancy", "Needle Stickin Blues", "Split", "Considine & Laura", "A Matter Of Time", and "New Interns Watusi". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)

Laurie JohnsonEngland's New Big Band Sound ... LP
Colpix, 1964. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A rare American outing from British bandleader Laurie Johnson – an artist who's probably best known for his famous soundtrack work of the 60s, but who steps out here in a surprisingly nice instrumental mode! The style here is a bit like that of John Dankworth on some of his American records – jazzy at the core, but also with larger orchestral flourishes that put the work somewhere between jazz and popular instrumental. But given Johnson's penchant for hip timing and a nicely swinging groove, the album's pretty nice all the way through – never sleepy, and done with a good sense of presence on some of the instruments. Titles include "Jenny", "By Myself", "Pagan Love Song", "Nevada", "South Of The Border", "Bali Hai", "Twango", and "My Favorite Things". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono white label promo.)

John LewisOrchestra USA ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Near Mint- ... $11.99
The first recordings ever from Orchestra USA – the landmark third stream jazz group co-led by John Lewis and Gunther Schuller! The group sprang out of Schuller and Lewis' preoccupations with bringing jazz to a more serious environment – merging traits of 20th century classical with jazz-based improvisation – in a format that included standout solo players, as well as larger backings from strings and woodwinds. And while some of that group's recordings were a bit dull, this one's totally great – not nearly as stiff and academic as you'd think – with some really strong solo work on saxes, and a soulful approach that gets past any formalism that could mar the proceedings. Players include Eric Dolphy, Phil Woods, Leo Wright, Nick Travis, and Jim Hall – and titles include "Three Little Feelings, "Milesign", "Milano", "Natural Affection", and "Donnie's Theme".

Zoot SimsNew Beat Bossa Nova Vol 1 ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. Used ... $14.99
A great chapter in 60s bossa jazz – Zoot Sims "answer" to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – recorded in a similar jazz-meets-bossa style, with some great guitar work by Jim Hall! Zoot's solos are a bit tighter and not as laidback as Stan's – giving a more jazz-based sound to the work that makes for a nice change – and most of the tunes feature larger backings from Manny Albam and Al Cohn – never too over-arranged, but with enough of a full swinging sound to set things right. Hall's guitar works surprisingly well in the setting – and titles include "Barquinho De Papel", "Ciume", "Recado Bossa Nova (parts 1 & 2)", and "Cano Canoe". CD

Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, and OthersJazz Mission To Moscow ... LP
Colpix, 1962. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Jazz from the heart of the cold war – not actually recorded in Moscow, but featuring a bunch of hip players on their return from a tour of the Soviet Union – a historic moment in which west met east, with some groovy jazz in the offing! Apart from the tenor of Zoot Sims and alto of Phil Woods, the record also features flute and alto from Jerry Dodgion, trombone from Willie Dennis, trumpets from Markie Markowitz and Jimmy Maxwell, and piano from Eddie Costa – and the set features arrangements from Al Cohn on tracks that hit the 5 minute range – tight at the top, with breakaway solos, as you might hear during some of the Cohn/Sims sides for RCA during the 50s! Titles include "Let's Dance", "Mission To Moscow", "The Sochi Boatman", and the obligatory "Russian Lullaby". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chet BakerMost Important Jazz Album Of 1964/65 ... LP
Colpix, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Chet Baker, and one of his strongest jazz albums of the 60s – even if the title makes a pretty ambitious claim! (And given those heady years of 1964 and 1965, Chet's got an awful lot of important albums to contend with!) The album steps nicely off of some of Chet's late 50s work for Pacific Jazz – the harder, more burning sides he cut at the end of the previous decade – records that marked a real departure from some of his mellower early work. The group here is well suited to help Chet reach a new level – as players include Phil Urso on tenor, Hal Galper on piano, Jymie Merritt on bass, and Charlie Rice on drums – all working in tight formation to arrangements by Galper, Tadd Dameron, and Jimmy Mundy. Titles include "Soultrane", "Mating Call", "Flight To Jordan", "Retsim B", "Walkin", and "Gnid". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label mono promo! Cover has a wrinkle in the front paste-on from application and very light aging on back.)

✨✧ Nina SimoneAmazing Nina Simone ... LP
Colpix, 1959. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing is right – as Nina Simone is really taking off here – showing the world that she's way more than just another jazz singer – able to hit some righteous currents that would only explode even more in years to come! Nina's emotion is subtle, but extremely powerful – maybe not as bold as in her late 60s recordings, but already very much part of the performance – even on some of the more standard jazz tunes. Arrangements are by Bob Mersey, and titles include "Blue Prelude", "You've Been Gone Too Long", "Chilly Winds Don't Blow", "Can't Get Out Of This Mood", and "That's Him Over There". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram 4 Men With Beards pressing from 2005.)
