Eddie Lockjaw DavisAfro-Jaws ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good ... $24.99
A soul jazz Latin classic – one that matches the searing tenor work of Eddie Lockjaw Davis with the hard-hitting conga of a young Ray Barretto! The core group of the set is a soul jazz one – with Lockjaw blowing over rhythm by Lloyd Mayers on piano, Larry Gales on bass, and Ben Riley on drums – plus a small added trumpet section on a few tracks. Ray comes into the mix with some really tight percussion on the bottom, aided by a few other players at times – kicking up the tunes and giving them a lot of fire – something that Davis seems to really respond to in his horn. Thanks should also be given to arranger Gil Lopez, who put together the overall sound of the set – and the album's a hard groover all the way through, filled with Latin jammers like "Wild Rice", "Jazz-a-Samba", "Guanco Lament", "Afro Jaws", and "Tin Tin Deo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo Bill Grauer Productions Inc pressing, with microphone logo and deep groove. Cover has a split spine, edge wear, staple holes in the top right corner, and some splitting in the bottom seam.)

Eddie Lockjaw DavisJaw's Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
Tenorist Eddie Lockjaw Davis always had a hell of a tone – and although his best-remembered dates are maybe from the 50s and 60s, the saxophonist still kept on making great records for many years to come! This album's definitely one of those – a European live recording, done in Munich, with Eddie stretching out with the sort of raspy tone that always made his early duets with Johnny Griffin such a delight – getting the sort of sensitive accompaniment here that Griff had on some of his later European dates too. The wonderful Horace Parlan is on piano, with Reggie Johnson on bass, and Alvin Queen on drums – and although it's clear that the Davis tenor solos are the main attraction, the album's a very sold group effort too. Titles include "What Is This Thing Called Love", "Jaw's Blues", "I'll Remember April", "Young Man With A Horn", and "But Beautiful". CD features two bonus tracks – "On Green Dolphin Street" and "Days Of Wine & Roses". CD
(Part of the "Enja – Real Jazz Classics" series!)

Kai Winding/Brew Moore/Eddie Lockjaw DavisIn The Beginning – Bebop ... CD
Savoy/Nippon (Japan), Late 40s. Used ... $7.99
A nice selection of late 40s work by a few groups, collected by Savoy as a kind of introduction to the bebop movement, a look back at the early days of bop. Kai Winding and his quintet, featuring Allen Eager on tenor and Shelley Manne on drums, lead off the set with four tracks including "Mr. Dues" and "O-Go-Mo". From there tenor sax man Brew Moore's quartet, featuring Jimmy Johnson on bass and Stan Levey on drums, contribute four tracks including "Blew Brew" and "More Brew". Eddie Lockjaw Davis rounds out the set, with a group that features Fats Navarro on trumpet and Al Haig on piano. His four tracks include "Spinal" and "Red Pepper". CD

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny GriffinMidnight Show – Live! At Minton's Playhouse ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set of hard-blowing tenor duets from Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Johnny Griffin – recorded at Minton's Playhouse in Harlem, with a very lively audience, and a twin tenor frontline that really set a new standard for material like this! The vibe is great – very different than tenor battles of the postwar years, as the players clearly understand each other, and encourage themselves a lot – working through material that's a nice mix of soul jazz and modern jazz inspirations – with help from Junior Mance on piano, Larry Gales on bass, and Ben Riley on drums. Titles include versions of Monk's "In Walked Bud" and Tadd Dameron's "Our Delight", as well as Davis' hard-grooving, darkly-tinged original "Beano", and a take on "Land Of Dreams".

✨✧ Red Garland Trio with Eddie Lockjaw DavisMoodsville Vol 1 – Red Garland Trio + Eddie Lockjaw Davis ... LP
Prestige/Moodsville, Early 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gentle genius from Red Garland – working here in classic trio formation with Sam Jones and Art Taylor – on a mellow set of late nite numbers and subtle ballads, all carried off in the best tradition of the Moodsville label! Eddie Lockjaw Davis joins the group on 3 tracks on the set – blowing in a style that's spare, open-mouthed, and amazingly soulful – more so almost than even his best ballad blowing on his organ-based records for Prestige during the same time. Davis really sparkles tremendously on the tunes "Softly Baby", "When Your Lover Has Gone", and "We'll Be Together Again" – and other tracks include "Stella By Starlight", "Blue Room", and "Wonder Why". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 3 ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
Volume 3 of Lockjaw's classic early Cookbook sessions – cut for Prestige in a key transitional moment, when Lock was trying to break past the R&B roots of earlier years, and emerge as a more sophisticated jazz soloist, capable of carrying an idea way past the short format of singles and jukebox sides. The sessions provide a perfect format for such an effort – as the tracks are long and open-ended, and match Eddie with a great quintet that includes Shirley Scott on organ and Jerome Richardson on flute and tenor. Tracks include "Heat & Serve", "Simmerin", and "The Goose Hangs High". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label NYC pressing with deep groove and RVG etch. Cover some wear, aging, and notes in pen on the back.)

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw Davis/Coleman Hawkins/Arnett Cobb/BuVery Saxy (OJC pressing) ... CD
Prestige, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title's terrible, but the album's a great one – a really classic-styled jam session, of the sort that the Prestige label hardly ever recorded! The session features 4 tenor giants of slightly older vintage – Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Coleman Hawkins, Arnett Cobb, and Buddy Tate – all coming together in some loosely-structured arrangements that offer the same sympathetic blowing space that you might get from an all-star tenor date on Verve. Rhythm is by a trio with Shirley Scott on organ, George Duvivier on bass, and Art Edgehill on drums – and titles include "Very Saxy", "Fourmost", "Foot Pattin", and "Light & Lovely". CD

Count BasieComplete Atomic Basie ... CD
Blue Note/Roulette, 1957. Used ... $3.99
One of THE seminal Basie albums of all time – and a masterful pairing between the Count and arranger Neal Hefti! Hefti has an amazing ear for the Basie groove, and he works here to re-fit the overall sound of the group with a tighter, more fluid approach – one that ensured that they'd be alive and booming well into the 60s. The Hefti touch is one that's slightly lighter than the Basie of before – one that assumes the bump at the bottom, but never overdoes it – and instead almost uses the sound of no sound at all to carry the rhythm – while the horns at the top of the group are vamping around in these majestic charts that break out into fantastically searing solos. Basie's on piano, natch – and other players include Thad Jones, Joe Newman, Henry Coker, Al Grey, Frank Wess, Frank Foster, and Eddie Lockjaw Davis. Titles are all brilliant Hefti originals – and include "After Supper", "Flight Of The Foo Birds", "Teddy The Toad", "Splanky", "Fantail", and "Lil Darlin". CD features 5 bonus tracks too – including "The Late Late Show", "Sleepwalker's Serenade", and "Silks & Satins". CD

Count Basie & His OrchestraBasie Meets Bond ... LP
United Artists, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
An excellent gimmick – and yet another way that United Artists was trying to push its "Bond" catalog in the 60s! Count Basie brings a soulful swing to the work of John Barry – hitting hard on the tracks with his own smoking piano, and an orchestra filled with some of his best players, like Al Grey, Eric Dixon, and Freddie Green – as well as Eddie Lockjaw Davis, an artist who wasn't credited on the session at he time. Arrangements are by Chico O'Farrill and George Williams – and titles include "Thunderball", "From Russia With Love", "007", "Girl Trouble", and "Goldfinger". LP, Vinyl record album

Ella FitzgeraldNewport Jazz Festival – Live At Carnegie Hall ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
A great set from Ella Fitzgerald – recorded at Carnegie Hall during a stretch when Fitzgerald was hitting new worldwide fame, and singing a lot of groovy contemporary tunes – but done here in a very old school style that hearkens back to Ella's earliest days in the jazz world! The orchestra here is that of Chick Webb, directed by Eddie Barefield – who brings a vintage swing to the music that's mighty nice, and free from some of the more modern modes of some of Fitzgerald's studio work of the time. The live setting allows for Ella to open up nicely on some tunes – especially some of the medley numbers, which may well be some of the most entertaining on the record. Ella sings with some backing from Ellis Larkins on piano on a few numbers – and a few other tracks are instrumental, with work by Tommy Flanagan on piano, Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor, and Al Grey on trombone. Titles include "Stardust", "Some Of These Days", "I've Gotta Be Me", "C Jam Blues", "Smooth Sailing", "Indian Summer", and "Lemon Drop". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy Forrest with Shirley ScottHeart Of The Forrest ... LP
PAJ, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A really classic tenor/organ sort of album – one recorded live in the late 70s, but with the sort of open-ended feel we remember from Shirley Scott's late 50s material with Eddie Lockjaw Davis! Jimmy Forrest is one of those players that always has a nice little bite in his tone – and he sounds especially sharp here, working with Shirley at a small club in Michigan – helping the organist to hit notes she was hardly reaching at the time, and really taking the sound back to the gutbuckety years of early Hammond jazz. Randy Marsh completes the group on drums, and titles include "Love For Sale", "These Foolish Things", "Take The A Train", and "Night Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Cash, Early 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
A nice lost killer! The record's a great batch of dreamy tenor/organ material from LA – recorded for the legendary Cash label, under the supervision of John Dolphin. Bo Rhambo plays some very nice tenor lines – in the manner of early (King-era) Eddie Lockjaw Davis – with backing by a raw little combo that includes Teddy Woods on organ and Bobby Pittman on drums. The sound is very spare, and very dreamy – and titles include "Bo's Blues", "Blue Mist", "Loafing", and "Move It On Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove pressing. Cover has a stained corner.)

✨✧ Shirley ScottLegends Of Acid Jazz (Hip Soul/Hip Twist) ... CD
Prestige, 1961. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Two hip recvords from organist Shirley Scott – back to back on a single CD! First up is Hip Soul – early Shirley Scott at her best – working with husband Stanley Turrentine to craft a great set of soul jazz tracks! The mood is laidback and easygoing, and honestly, it's Turrentine's deeply soulful solos that really make the set crackle – bringing an edge to the record that Shirley didn't always have, even on her earlier recordings with Eddie Lockjaw Davis. Stan's tone is superb – with a subtle rasp that really breaks open the sound – and his playing is extremely well-handled – always keeping us on the edge of our seat, blowing as he goes with incredible confidence and creativity! The rest of the group features Herb Lewis on bass and Roy Brooks on drums – and titles include "Trane's Blues", "Hip Soul", "411 West", "By Myself", and "Stanley's Time". On Hip Twist, Shirley's joined by husband Stanley Turrentine, whose tenor work on any Scott album always takes it to the next level! Stan's tone is still nice and raw here – blowing out some hard and soulful lines that are the perfect complement to Shirley's more composed work on the Hammond. The rest of the group includes George Tucker on bass and Otis Finch on drums – and tracks include "Hip Twist", "Violent Blues", "That's All", "All Tore Down", and "Rippin & Runnin". CD

✨✧ Tiny GrimesCallin' The Blues ... LP
Prestige/Swingville, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal bit of early soul jazz guitar work from Tiny Grimes – a player better known for his work in an R&B vein, but an excellent jazz-based talent on this tasty session! Tiny's working here with a group that includes Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor and Ray Bryant on piano, in a mode that opens up the album's 4 long tracks into freely flowing vehicles for improvisation. Trombonist JC Higginbotham brings a nice "bottom" sound to the record, making for a slightly unusual frontline – and titles include "Blue Tiny", "Callin The Blues", "Grimes Times", and "Airmail Special".

Titles include "Traveling Light", "From This Moment On", "Down By The Riverside", and "You're My Everything".

✨✧ Count BasieGet Together ... LP
Pablo, 1979. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little Count Basie get together – one of those small group sessions from the 70s, which made some of these later years of his career such a delight! The album's nicely relaxed – in the best Pablo Records way – almost an extension of the Verve swing modes of the 50s, when players really got to open up more on their solos – but maybe with a bit more Basie bite in the groove, too! The Count's on piano – and the group features Clark Terry and Harry Edison on trumpets, Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor, Budd Johnson on tenor and baritone, Freddie Green on guitar, John Clayton on bass, and Gus Johnson drums. The Green/Basie sense of rhythm is as impeccable as always – and titles include "Ode To Pres", "Basie's Bag", "Like It Used To be", "Swinging On The Cusp", and "My Main Men". LP, Vinyl record album

A really wonderful back to basics session for Basie – featuring arrangements by longtime band members Frank Foster, Erick Dixon, Bobby Plater, and Thad Jones! The set also features vocals on 2 tracks by bluesy vocalist Richard Boone – a singer with a really great scatting approach – but overall, the real strength is the horn section, particularly Al Aarons, Dixon, and Eddie Lockjaw Davis – who all get in some very nice solo work. Tracks are mostly older numbers, Basie-ized – and played with a laidback tone that's a real contrast from the higher energy early 60s recordings. Titles include "Squeeze Me", "Frankie & Johnny", "Boone's Blues", "I Got Rhythm", and "Hey Jim". CD
