Duke JordanFlight To Jordan ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1960. Used ... $11.99
Quite possibly the greatest album ever cut by pianist Duke Jordan – a seminal force in bop, both for his writing and playing – but an artist who rarely ever got the chance to work as a leader! This session's a prime bit of lost Blue Note – with an unusual and edgey lineup that includes Dizzy Reece on trumpet, Stanley Turrentine on tenor, Reggie Workman on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all coming together under Jordan's direction. The set's got a wonderfully classic feel – a mix of hardbop with slightly more lyrical leanings, and a few darker undercurrents – heard to best effect in Jordan's writing, which reminds us of some of his work on French soundtracks from the same time. Titles include "Deacon Joe", "Si-Joya", "Flight To Jordan", and "Squawkin". CD
(Out of print, 2004 pressing.)

Spotlite (UK), 1973. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A fantastic lost moment in the career of Duke Jordan – a UK album that features some great quartet material with Cecil Payne on baritone sax, alongside David Williams on bass and Al Foster on drums! The remaining third of the album features a different trio – with Lloyd Buchanan on bass and Brian Brake on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Jordan/Sadik HakimEast & West Of Jazz ... LP
Charlie Parker, 1962. Sealed ... $11.99
An overlooked bit of piano genius from the 60s – a split LP with great work from both artists! Sadik kicks things off with the "east" side of the record – tunes that have a supposedly exotic feel, but which are mostly soul jazz piano groovers – performed by a quartet with Eddie Wright on guitar, Kalil Madi on drums, and Lloyd Buchanon on bass. Titles are all originals by Hakim, and include "Impulse", "Buch's Blues", "Goodies For The Goodies", and "Little Lou". The "west" side of the album features Duke Jordan leading a quintet with Cecil Payne on baritone sax and Johnny Coles on trumpet – in a mode that's got a similar earthy feel to Payne's own album on the Charlie Parker label. Tunes include "I'm Gonna Learn Your Style", "Tall Grass", "Like Church", and "Yes He's Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gigi Gryce/Duke Jordan/Hall OvertonSignals ... LP
Savoy/Signal, Mid 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An interesting record that collects the output of the rare Savoy subsidiary Signal. The label released recordings in the Music Minus One vein, but used the then new stereo technology to separate out the soloist, and always featured top flight soloists and rhythm sections. For this reissue the mix has been restored so it plays like a normal recording. The list of participants is great, and includes Gigi Gryce, Duke Jordan, Oscar Pettiford, Kenny Clarke, Phil Woods, Hall Overton, Teddy Kotick, Art Farmer, Horace Silver, Thelonious Monk,Percy Heath, Art Blakey and more, and the playing throughout is a step above what you'd expect from this sort of recording. There's 18 tracks in all, with quite a few standards as you'd expect from a recording of this nature, including "Embraceable You", "Jordu", "Oh Yeah", "Yesterdays", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "Smoke Signal", "Nica's Tempo" and loads more. LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny BurrellBlue Lights Vol 2 ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $6.99
Some of Kenny Burrell's best early work! The album catches Kenny in the perfect Blue Note jam session mode of the late 50s – which features a number of the label's star players hitting hard with the main soloist. Players on the two volume set include Duke Jordan or Bobby Timmons piano, Junior Cook and Tina Brooks tenor, Louis Smith trumpet, and Art Blakey on Drums. The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings. Titles on this volume include "Rock Salt", "Chuckin", and "Caravan". CD

Teddy EdwardsInimitable Teddy Edwards ... CD
Xanadu, 1976. New Copy ... $9.99 15.99
70s brilliance from tenorist Teddy Edwards – a really overlooked album, and one that marks a great step forward from some of Edwards' better-known material of the 60s! That impeccable tone is still very strongly in place – that Edwards way of blowing smooth, but with a subtle bite, too – and Teddy's also developed this sense of flow that's really special – a difference than the way he played fifteen or twenty years before – with almost a Sonny Criss-like approach that really holds us rapt, even in more subtle moments. The album's beautifully recorded – in that stunning Xanadu label way – and the group's a quartet, with Duke Jordan on piano, Larry Ridley on bass, and Freddie Waits on drums. Edwards is clearly the start of the show, though – and really shines on titles that include "Sunset Eyes", "Imagination", "One By One", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

Charles McPhersonBeautiful! (with bonus track) ... CD
Xanadu, 1975. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
Incredible work from Charles McPherson – his first for Xanadu in the mid 70s – wherein his amazing quartet breathes fresh, bop-inspired urgency and a deft sense of soul into some older standards – maybe even as strongly as on his best work for Prestige in the 60s! It's truly timeless – holding true to the classic songcraft of the compositions, but leaving plenty of room to riff and improvise in ways that add both subtle shades and energetic flourishes. The group includes Duke Jordan on piano, Sam Jones on bass and Leroy Williams on drums – all on their game. Beautiful indeed! Songs include "It Could Happen to You," "Lover," "This Can't Be Love", "They Say its Wonderful", "Body And Soul","But Beautiful". CD includes a bonus track, and it's a great one – a tremendous 9 minute take on "All God's Children Got Rhythm". CD

✨✧ Thelonious MonkLes Liaisons Dangereuses 1960 ... CD
Sam Records/Saga, 1959. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
A rare and unused soundtrack recording by Thelonious Monk – and a set of music that would be a standout in his catalog, even if it wasn't planned for a film! You probably know the Art Blakey soundtrack for the movie – which was the used and released version – and you might even know the Duke Jordan recording, too – but this batch of material is equally wonderful, and features an unusual quintet that has Monk's piano alongside the twin tenors of both Charlie Rouse and Barney Wilen – the latter of whom was such a key part of the French scene that gave the world the film in the late 50s. Other group members include Sam Jones on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and most numbers are reworkings of other Monk compositions, but done especially for the film – with titles that include "Six In One", "Light Blue", "Bye & Bye", "Ba Lue Bolivar Ba Lues Are", "Pannonica", "Well You Needn't", and "Rhythm-A-Ning" – all presented here in differing versions and mixes. Great package – 2CDs, with a bonus 60 page color book with photos and essays! CD

Cecil PayneCecil Payne (aka Patterns Of Jazz) ... LP
Signal, 1956. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A warmly crafted set that features Cecil Payne at the height of his powers on baritone sax – blowing with a sense of soul and timing that's right up there with some of the hipper tenor players of his generation! Payne's sound on the instrument is amazingly precise and wonderfully fluid – blown beautifully in two different settings for the album – one in a quartet with Duke Jordan on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – the other in the same group, but with Kenny Dorham added in on trumpet! Dorham's tones further emphasize the sweeter sound of Cecil on his chosen instrument – and titles on the set include "Arnetta", "Chessman's Delight", "Bringing Up Father", "Groovin High", "Saucer Eyes", and "Man Of Moods". LP, Vinyl record album

Cecil PayneCecil Payne Performing Charlie Parker Music ... LP
Charlie Parker, 1961. Very Good+ ... $9.99
As you'd expect from the title, this one features Cecil Payne performing a number of Charlie Parker compositions – and for the Charlie Parker label, no less! The session has a slightly off-beat quality, given that Payne's horn is a baritone, and not an alto, like Parker's – but given the fluid approach that Cecil always used, the sound is great – thanks also to support from a great combo that includes Duke Jordan on piano, Clark Terry on trumpet, Charlie Persip on drums, and Ron Carter on bass. Titles include "Cool Blues", "The Hymn", "Communion", and "Bongo Beep". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove.)

Cecil PayneConnection – New Original Score ... LP
Charlie Parker, 1962. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A remake of the score to The Connection – the famous play about drug addicts and jazz musicians that was later made into a film by Shirley Clarke, and which featured a soundtrack (issued on Blue Note) by Freddie Redd and Jackie McLean. Before it was a film, though, the play toured a number of local areas – each of which would have a new group of jazz musicians, the event of which would often yield a new score to the play. From the notes, it's hard to tell if Payne was ever in the play – or if the group here was just one put together to cash in on the success of the well-received work. We tend to think the latter – as the group's a bit to pro and too big (a sextet) to be just a pick-up combo in a New York loft, waiting for some drugs to arrive. The record is a nice one, though – one of the few fine albums to feature Payne as a leader, recorded with players that include Bennie Green, Clark Terry, Duke Jordan, Charlie Persip, and Ron Carter. Tracks are all new ones – either by Payne or Kenny Drew – and titles include "Stop & Listen", "Dear People", "Born Again", and "Kenny's One". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCuba In America 1939 to 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $22.99 29.99
A fantastic collection of music – 66 tracks that show the huge influence of Cuban rhythms in American music during the mid-century years – presented here in a wider range of styles than you might expect! This isn't just Latin music, made by Cuban cats hitting the New York scene – and instead, these are tracks that show the very deep penetration of sounds from Havana – at a level that has the rhythms emerging in soul, hardbop, R&B, and even more standard blues material! The CD divides the music up into three different CDs, each with a different theme – one that looks at rumba in jazz music, another the influence of the mambo, and the third the range of slower Cuban rhythms well into the 60s. Titles include "Dem Tambourines" by Don Wilkerson, "Cuba Doll" by Lloyd Glenn, "Summertime" by Red Saunders, "Soony Roony" by Slim Gaillard, "De Laff's On You" by Louis Jordan, "Conga Brava" by Duke Ellington, "I Come From America" by Chris Powell, "Jock A Mo" by Sugar Boy Crawford, "Woke Up This Morning" by BB King, "Fool Burro" by Mabel Scott, "Cu-Blue" by Billy Taylor, "Arabian Love Call" by Art Neville, "Out Of Nowhere" by Cal Tjader, "I've Waited So Long" by Eddie Cochran, "She Wants To Mambo" by The Chanters, "Mambo Hop" by Oscar Saldana, and "Mambocito Mio" by Illinois Jacquet.

✨✧ Tommy Chase QuartetHard! ... CD
BGP (UK), 1983. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A well-titled album from drummer Tommy Chase – and an overlooked bit of hardbop from the 80s scene in the UK! Although recorded just a few years before the Acid Jazz boom in London, the record's got a much more old school feel overall – one that recalls the sound of Blue Note or Prestige at the end of the 50s – with Chase kicking it hard in a quartet that features piano from Nick Weldon, bass from Andrew Cleyndert, and some great work on tenor and alto sax from Alan Barnes – who really gets plenty of space to shine in the spotlight. The feel's a bit like some of Johnny Griffin's earliest albums – with the sax really driving the rest of the quartet – and titles include versions of Duke Jordan's "No Problem", Gigi Gryce's "Minorty", Sonny Criss' "Blue Sunset", and Tadd Dameron's "Ladybird".

✨✧ Julius WatkinsJulius Watkins Sextet – Volumes 1 & 2 ... LP
Blue Note (Japan), 1955/1984. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Cool Japanese reissue that brings together both of the 10" LPs that were recorded by Julius Watkins for Blue Note in the early 50's. This material is a key part of the label's history, but it's also the kind of stuff that they'd never release over here. It's a real shame, too, because the sessions include stellar performances by Frank Foster, Kenny Clarke, Hank Mobley, Duke Jordan, and little known guitarist Perry Lopez, who complements Watkins' playing on both LPs. The tracks include "Leete", "Linda Delia", "Perpetuation", and "Garden Delights" – and the music is an excellent mix of hard bop and modernist ideas. LP, Vinyl record album
