Clifford BrownMemorial Album (Blue Note) ... CD
Blue Note, 1953. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with the modernist Gigi Gryce on flute and alto sax – plus Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Lewis on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – a lineup that has a strong sense of soul, balanced with a dose of modernism – on titles that include the classic "Hymn to the Orient" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Easy Living", "Cherokee", "Wail Bait", and "Minor Mood". Side two features an equally sharp group – with Lou Donaldson on some excellent alto, and the great Elmo Hope on piano – on titles that include "Brownie Speaks", "De Dah", "Cookin", "You Go To My Head", and "Carving The Rock".

Curtis CounceExploring The Future (remastered edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dooto/Boplicity (UK), 1958. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A great little album that's every bit as wonderful as you might expect from its cover – one of the key late 50s sides as a leader from bassist Curtis Counce – cut with a killer lineup that includes Harold Land on tenor sax, Rolf Ericson on trumpet, and Elmo Hope on piano! The set's got the mix of modernism and soul bop leanings you might expect from the players – a really fresh approach that comes off especially well in the non-iconic production style of the Dootone label – a mode that really let the players do their own thing, and break out from some of the tighter restrictions of other LA labels on the scene. Frank Butler completes the quintet on drums – and titles include "The Countdown", "Into The Orbit", "Race For Space", "Move", "Angel Eyes", and "So Nice". CD also features 4 bonus tracks – "Foreplay", "Chasin The Bird", "Move (unedited version)", and "Head Gear (Countdown) (unedited version)". CD

✨✧ Horace TapscottSongs Of The Unsung ... LP
Interplay/Survival Research (Australia), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Solo piano work from the magical Horace Tapscott – a blend of original compositions, plus work by hip composers like Cal Massey and Elmo Hope – key modern jazz talents with whom Tapscott genuinely shares a lineage! Tapscott's got the usual fluid touch on the keys – opening forth with a tremendously expressive style, showing the world of ideas that bubble forth from his piano – yet there's also a warmth here that's a bit different from some of his other solo dates too – a bit different than the vibe of his recordings at Nimbus, which were a bit more rough around the edges (although all still pretty darn great too.) Titles include "Mary On Sunday", "Bakai", "In Times Like These", and "Something For Kenny". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny RollinsMoving Out ... LP
Prestige, 1954. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Key recordings from Sonny's breakout year of 1954 – tracks from 2 different sessions, brought together into one album that packs a hell of a punch! The modernist Rollins tenor is at its early peak here – fresh, bold, and highly creative – yet equally concerned with the role of the ensemble as well. And with players like Kenny Dorham, Elmo Hope, Thelonious Monk, and Art Blakey helping things out, the sessions are both cookers all the way through! Titles include 4 by a group with Dorham, Hope, and Blakey – "Solid", "Moving Out", "Swingin For Bumsy", and "Silk N Satin" – plus 1 more by a quartet with Monk, Tommy Potter, and Art Taylor – the longer "More Than You Know". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow and black label NYC 50th street pressing – with deep groove and RVG etch! Cover is nice.)
