VariousGonna Shake This Shack – From The Vaults Of Decca & Coral Records ... CD
Decca/Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
Rare hillbilly grooves from Decca Records – the kind of killer pre-country material that was not only a huge influence on rock and roll, but which will also show you that Elvis and Sun Records weren't the only people who'd figured out this kind of groove back in the 50s! The tracks are all upbeat, all very groovy, and filled with lots of wit and sweet instrumental touches – really moving the older modes of hillbilly music into the postwar years, often with a strong electric or steel guitar line instead of a fiddle or other stringed instrument! This is the sort of work that's been compiled on dodgy cheapo collections for years – but the Bear Family treatment here is superb – with great notes and wonderful sound, for titles that include "Pan American Boogie" by Lonnie Glosson, "I'm A Ding Dong Daddy" by Jimmy Atkins & His Pinetoppers, "Hesitation Boogie" by Hardrock Gunter, "I Mean I'm Mean" by Roy Duke, "Happy Go Lucky" by Autry Inman, "Blue Ribbon Boogie" by Chuck Murphy, "I'm Just Here To Get My Baby Out Of Jail" by Rusty Keefer, "Empty Seat In The Bar Room Booth" by Gene Stewart, "Inchin Up" by Tabby West, "Sixty Minute Man" by Roberta Lee & Hardrock Gunter, "Guitar Shuffle" by Hank Garland, and "Pretty Little Dedon" by Tabby West. 30 tracks in all!

Coral, 1958. Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the many releases in the surprisingly successful semi-genre of "jazz meets West Side Story" albums that came out in the late 50s and early 60s. Albam actually does a pretty great job of opening up the jazzy changes in Bernstein's score, and it helps that he's got great ensemble players like Al Cohn, Gene Quill, Nick Travis, Bob Brookmeyer, and Frank Socolow. Titles include "Jet Song", "Cool", "Maria", and "Something's Coming". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Walter Bishop JrCoral Keys ... CD
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The keys are coral, and the sound is sublime – one of the greatest albums ever from pianist Walter Bishop Jr, and proof that he can really stretch out, given the right setting! The piano here is all acoustic, but there's an almost-electric vibe to the date – long, open tracks that sway and swell with some great spiritual energy – made even more wonderful by work from reedman Harold Vick, who plays tenor, flute, and soprano sax on the record – and makes it one of his best recordings ever! The reedwork alone is worth the price of admission – but the rhythms are also great too – a mix of soulful, modal, and some slight funky bits – handled by Reggie Johnson on bass, and either Idris Muhammad or Alan Benger on drums. Woody Shaw plays trumpet on some cuts, too – and titles include "Coral Keys", "Soul Turn Around", "Freedom Suite", "Track Down", "Waltz For Zweetie", and "Three Loves". CD

✨✧ Al Cohn & Zoot SimsAl & Zoot ... CD
Coral/MCA, 1957. Used ... $6.99
Tremendous horn interplay from the team of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims – and a record that may well be one of the best illustrations of their famous magic together in the 50s! The record's got a way of focusing energy, yet letting each player state themselves clearly and cleanly – almost a perfect small group variation of the larger jazz modes of a generation before – carried out here by Cohn and Sims with a great balance of tone and timing, modernism and swing! There's an excellent rhythm group on the date – Mose Allison on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Nick Stabulus on drums – who almost bring in a slightly soulful undercurrent, which works especially well on Sims' solo moments. Tracks include "Two Funky People", "Just You Just Me", "The Wailing Boat", "You're A Lucky Guy", "Brandy & Beer", and "Chasing The Blues". CD

Al Cohn QuintetAl Cohn Quintet Featuring Bob Brookmeyer ... LP
Coral, 1956. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A rare and unusual chapter in the career of Al Cohn – and an incredible set cut in the mid 50s with Bob Brookmeyer on trombone! The style's a bit like that used by Al and Zoot Sims together – tightly arranged shorter tracks, with a focus on well-crafted horn work, but enough space to allow each of the leaders break out and express their personality on the record. The rest of the group features Mose Allison on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the arrangements are all pretty darn fresh, handled by Al and Bob themselves. Titles include "So Far So Good", "Winter", "Back To Back", "Shine", "Good Spirits", and "Lazy Man Stomp". LP, Vinyl record album

Teddi KingAll The King's Songs ... LP
Coral, 1959. Very Good ... $14.99
The title tells the story of the album's concept – as Teddi King pays tribute to a dozen male "kings" of music – including Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Dick Haymes, and Billy Eckstine! The tunes are all signature numbers by each of the male stars – redone by Teddi here with a female twist, and set to backings by Lew Douglas and Johnny Richards – both of whom give Teddi some of the best support of her 50s career. Richards' backings are especially great – nicely dynamic, in a way that breaks past some of Teddi's sleepier qualities – and even on the mellower numbers, the King vocals are in full force, sung with even more promise than on previous albums for RCA. Titles include "Flamingo", "Unforgettable", "April Showers", "A Cottage For Sale", "This Love Of Mine", "Keeping Out Of Mischief Now", and "Temptation". LP, Vinyl record album

Hal McKusickHal McKusick Quintet Featuring Art Farmer ... LP
Coral, 1957. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Hal McKusick is one of the most frequently overlooked reed players of the 50's – and until this great reissue of his rare Decca recordings came out a few years ago, his work was mostly only known to collectors of rare stuff who had the money to check him out. Fortunately, this lower-priced reissue set brings together some of McKusick's best sides for Decca (which were also probably his best sides ever), and the material is a haunting mix of bebop with a tighter approach to arrangements – sort of in the style of some of Benny Golson's work from the same time. Titles include "Ponsu", "For Art's Sake", "Criss Cross", "Down & Dirty", and "Old Devil Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Scott & The All Stars52nd Street Scene ... LP
Coral, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
In the years before he discovered zen meditation and yoga, Tony Scott was actually a pretty capable bopper, making his name on the 52nd Street scene which is recreated here by assembling the sort of "all star" groups that might have gigged together on the scene. Coral borrowed a bunch of players from other labels – like Al Cohn, Jimmy Knepper, George Wallington, Roy Haynes, Mundell Lowe, Tommy Flanagan, and others – and they put them together in various combinations with Scott at the head, feeding them open-ended solo vehicles like "Blues For The Street", "Lester Leaps In", "Ornithology", and "Mop Mop". And believe it or not, the formula works surprisingly well! LP, Vinyl record album

Coral/Lonehill (Spain), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Manny's really grooving wonderfully on this session – using the same formation from his Jazz Greats Vol 1 session for Decca, an assortment of the best New York soloists Albam could find, all brought together in one great band for the session! The group is a largeish one, but they've got an incredibly tight energy – and Album's well remembering his own days as a player in a larger group with the arrangements, and gives the soloists plenty of room to express themselves. Players include Donald Byrd, Art Farmer, Bob Brookmeyer, Frank Socolow, Eddie Costa, Dick Katz, Nick Travis, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Woods – all painting a beautiful sound portrait of New York arranged by Manny! Titles include "Thruway", "They All Laughed", "Fresh Flute", "Dot's Right", "The Nether Regions", and "Hebe The Cups Please". CD also features 2 bonus tracks from the Something New Something Blue session for Columbia from the same period – "Night Crawlers" and "Tin Roof Blues". CD

✨✧ Johnny BurnetteRock N Roll Trio/Tear It Up ... CD
Coral/BGO (UK), 1956/1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of full length albums from Johnny Burnette – one of the greatest talents in the early years of rock and roll! First up is the seminal Rock & Roll Trio album on Coral from 1956 – a stunning little record and one that's had an undeniable influence on the sound of guitar-based music for generations to come – from rockabilly to garage, psych, and punk – thanks to groundbreaking work from the Johnny Burnette Trio! The album's one of the first really raw records to be cut as a full length rock release – not a handful of previous singles mixed with filler, but a nonstop jammer that has the core trio occasionally augmented by larger horns, but never losing the energy of their sound – or that incredible bite on guitar. The use of fuzz here is landmark – especially on the classic "Train Kept A Rollin" – the group's remake of a Tiny Bradshaw tune, refocused in energy that would later be picked up by The Yardbirds. But the whole thing's great, too – and other titles include "Sweet Love On My Mind", "Lonesome Train", "Honey Hush", "I Just Found Out", "Chains Of Love", "I Love You So", and "Rock Billy Boogie". Tear It Up was a later 90s album that pulled together more obscure moments from the trio – but the quality of the work is rock-solid throughout – as Johnny and Dorsey Burnette play with raw intensity and razor-sharp musicianship. Titles include "Shattered Dreams", "My Love You're A Stranger", "Oh Baby Babe", "Tear It Up", "You're Undecided", "Midnight Train", and "If You Want It Enough". CD

Walter Bishop Jr.Soul Village ... LP
Muse, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of a rare few electric albums from the great Walter Bishop Jr – a pianist who started during the bop years, but really grew into new modes in the 70s! The set's an album on Muse, but one with the same hip grooves as Walter Bishop's pair of excellent albums for the Black Jazz label – and like those gems, this set features Bishop working on Fender Rhodes – hitting a groove we never would have expected in the old days, and really going for a style that's at the hippest end of the soul jazz spectrum of the 70s! Tunes are a mix of funky fusion and modal, spiritual styles – and other players include Randy Brecker on trumpet, Gerry Niewood on tenor and flute, and George Young on soprano and alto sax – and the horns are all arranged tightly by Mitch Farber, in a way that adds an extra edge to the record, but still leaves plenty of space for Bishop's solo flights on the keys. Titles include great versions of "Soul Village", "Coral Keys", and "Soul Turnaround" – plus the cuts "Philadelphia Bright", "Sweet Rosa", and "Valerie". LP, Vinyl record album

Brother TheodoreFate Conspires With Destiny To Do Me Dirt – 1959 to 1972 ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Completely bizarre work from Brother Theodore – a strange postwar cultural figure who'd arrived in the US from a rescue of the holocaust hellhole of Dachau, then reinvented himself as an offbeat actor and monologist! Theodore's got a very strange voice, one that's partly inflected by his accent, but which mostly comes from the pointed way he presents his word – often with rolling consonants, and this sense of acting, even when speaking – which is what he mostly does on the record, save for some added musical effects and very slight production twists. Theodore briefly worked with Orson Welles, and there's almost a Welles-like sense of creativity and pomposity on these recordings – which were just part of the Brother's calling card, as he spent years doing his act in New York clubs, and also spent some time on the west coast too – a surprisingly strong underground figure. This release brings together the 1959 Coral Records album Theodore In Stereo, plus two tracks recorded for the PIP label in 1972, and one unreleased track – with titles that include "The Willow Landscape", "Quadrupedism", "The Curse Of The Toad", "Lisolatta Bindfel", and "I'm Just Plain Folks".

More Ink from The Dining Rooms – a cool CD that compiles all the vinyl remixes from their Ink album – previously only out as 12" singles at import prices, now brought together in a much more affordable package for the CD! The work here really pushes past the original spirit of the album – and the group seems to let each remixer really go to town on their versions – almost forgetting the sound and structure of the original tunes, and bringing lots more new ideas and instrumentation into play. Titles include "Ink (Cinematic Orchestra voc mix)", "Exit A New York", "Fatale (Christian Prommer rmx)", "Hear Us Now (Invisible Session rework)", "Free To Grow (S-Tone Inc rmx)", "Cobra Coral (Juju Orchestra rmx)", "Thank You (radio version)", "On The Beach (Santino Burnetto rmx)", "Thank You (Skwerl's ungrateful love mix)", and "Ink (Live At Teatro 1)".

Benny's command of the electric instrument is great – blocky in attack, but warmly spreading out as the notes emerge – given gentle rhythm accompaniment from David Wong on bass and Aaron Kimmel on drums – players who drop out in a few spots, and who really seem just like extra icing next to the core rhythmic approach of the leader! There's guest flute from Anne Drummond on two tracks, vocals from Veronica Swift on one more – and titles include "Coral Keys", "Harold Land", "Central Park South", "Benny's Crib", "Something In Common", and "Seascape".

There's less of a tendency to jam on this set – yet Seifert still plays with a nice sense of boldness, really feeling the shapes of the sounds, and exploring the full tonal possibilities of his instrument – a bit like Billy Bang at some of his most inventive moments! The core group really adds a lot to the sensitivity of the record – Joachim Kuhn on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – the two latter players bringing in some especially nice elements at the bottom of the rhythms. Jasper Van't Hof plays electric piano and organ on a few tracks – and titles include "Coral", "Turbulent Plover", "City Of Spring", "Man Of The Light", and "Stillness". LP, Vinyl record album

The first-ever full length collection of work from Sun Palace – the enigmatic duo who cut some great underground club work on the early 80s New York scene! The set's broken into two halves – titled "Raw Movements" and "Rude Movements", after the famous instrumental singles – which are both featured here, along with lots of other incredible 80s material that really fleshes out the groove! Most tracks feature some kind of wickedly weird guitar line from Mike Collins, and lots of cool keyboards from Keith O'Connell – all in modes that are as spare as some of the earliest house music, but with rhythms that are much more in an NYC electro mode! There's a lot of unreleased tracks here from those days – including a few that were just finished up for this set – and titles include "Raw Movements", "Love Train II", "Palace Strut", "Coral Reef", "Street Beat", "What's The Time", "Rude Movements (remaster)", "Movement 1 (winning)", "Movement 2 (reconstruction)", and "Movement 3 (completion)".

✨✧ Archie SheppDoodlin' ... LP
Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very different album from Archie Shepp – and an introspective record that shows a whole new side of his talents! For the session, Shepp plays piano, not tenor – an instrument he handles with an angular, modern tone – one that seems to echo bits of Herbie Nichols and Thelonious Monk, but with a wider range of sounds too – and a definite sense of spirit that shows Archie's larger growth as a musician in the 70s. The tunes are often familiar numbers, but they're recast in weird ways here – odd phrasing on piano, offbeat rhythms, and some hip backing from Bob Reid on bass and Muhammad Ali on drums. The great Alan Shorter joins the group on flugelhorn for a few numbers – bringing in a freer Paris jazz feel – and titles include "Doodlin", "Invitation", "Coral Rock", "More Than You Know", and Shepp's own "Worried About You".

ECM (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic 70s album from Gary Burton – a set that definitely has the "new" promised in the title, as it takes off more from some of Gary's work in previous years! The record's got this explosive sense of color that really comes through in Gary's vibes – and in the way the group can leaop into the fray when needed – almost funky at points, but also able to shift into more sensitive modes too – balanced between the guitar of Michael Goodrick,bass of Abraham Laboriel, and drums of Harry Blazer. Burton's got a bit more bite at times than before – pushing even past his Atlantic Records sound and the tunes are a well-chosen array of songs by contemporaries who include Keith Jarrett, Mike Gibbs, Chick Corea, and Carla Bley. Titles include "Open Your Eyes You Can Fly", "Coral", "Tying Up Loose Ends", "Olhos De Gato", and "Mallet Man". CD

Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet little island-based soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – one that's served up in just the right blend of exotica and jazz! Some elements here resonate with Umiliani's more familiar Italian scores of the time – some sweet keyboards that trip out nicely at a level that's a few notches down from funk, with maybe a bit of bossa in the mix – while others add in a bit more percussion or strings, to flesh things out with some sunnier, more tropical elements that are a nice contrast to some of the other moments. There's a bit of vocals in the mix, but most tunes are instrumental – and titles include "Le Isolle Dell'Amore", "Tamoure Titoli", "Papete Aru", "Vele Al Vento", "Comunita' Hippy", "La Danza Del Turista", "Corale Isole Dal Tema", "Palme E Cocchi", and "Nuku".

An instrumental set that's a tribute to the sea – but with a version of the ocean that's a lot moodier and more mysterious than the watery world of Sven Libaek! Edmondo Giuliani works in roughly similar territory here – often using flutes, light stringed instruments, vibes, and other woodwinds to evoke a watery depth – but he's not afraid to make some corners of the water seem a bit spookier and enigmatic, especially at a few points when he really surprises us with some noisier electronics! There's a strong sense of journey as the record progresses – light to darkness, and back again – on titles that include "Alghe", "Sonar Tre", "Scandaglio Zero", "Iridescenze", "Coralli", and "Marina".

✨✧ VariousLe Pop 2 ... CD
Groove Attack (Germany), 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty great little collection of tunes from the contemporary French pop scene – which is quite strong, catchy and diverse – at least as far as this batch chronicles! What really stands out here is how profoundly jazzy the tunes are – looking back to the sultry, easy groove of the strongest 60s inspirations but with a very contemporary electronic sheen. Of course you can hardly go wrong with a set of tunes that features a contribution from the wonderful Coralie Clement – her "Samba De Mon Coeur" is featured, and it's a wonderfully nice surprise how strong many of the other cuts are. We'll certainly keep our eyes peeled for full lengths from these artists! 16 tracks in all: "Ca Alors" by Pascal Parisot, "Les Yeux Tout Autour De Ka Tete" by Jerome Miniere, "Charlotte" by Romeo, "Tunis" by Holden, "Le Canon Des Sourds" by Lazzi, "Si J'Etais Toi" by Mickey 3D, "Facile" by Toma and more.
