✨✧ Clifford Brown & Max RoachBrown & Roach Incorporated ... CD
EmArcy, 1955. Used ... $6.99
Quite possibly THE key example of the magic of Clifford Brown and Max Roach on record – a brilliant studio session that really has the group "incorporating" their sound – forging a bold musical statement that would forever leave its imprint on jazz for years to come! The format here shows Brown and Roach as a key force in 50s hardbop – extending Max's bop idiom of years back, and using Clifford's more lyrical approach to solo work to expand the tone, color, and spirit of their music – linking styles and worlds wonderfully, and forging a sound that's tight, yet also beautifully spontaneous and personal. The rest of the group includes Harold Land on tenor, Richie Powell on piano, and George Morrow on bass – and titles include "Sweet Clifford", "Ghost Of A Chance", "Stompin At The Savoy", "I'll String Along With You", "Mildama", "Darn That Dream", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You".

✨✧ Clifford Brown & Max RoachMore Study In Brown ... CD
EmArcy (Germany), 1955. Used ... $7.99
A great follow up to the legendary Study In Brown album – featuring work recorded by Clifford Brown in the 50s, but not issued until nearly 30 years later, in this Japanese-collected batch of rare material! As with the original album, the core group on the record features Clifford Brown on trumpet, Max Roach on drums, Richie Powell on piano, and George Morrow on bass – plus Harold Land on most of the tenor tracks, replaced by Sonny Rollins on a few more – showing a shift that would occur in the group shortly after Brown's death. The focus is a bit more strongly on Clifford Brown's trumpet work than some of the other Brown/Roach albums – but is still a great group effort overall – and tracks are shortish and very tight, with titles that include "The Blues Walk", "Jordu", "Mildama", "Land's End", and "Junior's Arrival".

✨✧ Clifford Brown & Max RoachStudy In Brown (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EmArcy/Verve, 1955. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 34.99
A study in brown, and a study in hardbop too – a seminal album of 50s jazz that forever went on to set the tone for the music! The album was one of a few that trumpeter Clifford Brown cut as his star was strongly rising, before a tragic early accident took his life – and it's a masterpiece of bop modernism, done with the co-leadership of drummer Max Roach – with an equally well-matched group that includes Harold Land on tenor, George Morrow on bass, and Bud Powell's brother Richie on piano. Tracks are short, and played with great boppish fire and fury – virtually the blueprint for the hardbop sound of the 50s, and one of the strongest expressions from this important, but short-lived group. Titles include "Gerkin For Perkin", "Sandu", "Jacqui", "Swingin", and the great "Land's End". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke EllingtonDuke Ellington Live At The Newport Jazz Festival 1959 ... CD
EmArcy, 1959. Used ... $5.99
A rare slice of Duke Ellington at Newport in the 50s – recorded live at the festival in 1959, but unlike other sessions of the time, never issued on record! The set remained unissued until Duke's 90th birthday, and it's a great discovery that easily matches the strength of Ellington's larger live recordings for Columbia at the same time. As is usual for this type of outing, there's a number of shorter tracks that reprise Ellington favorites for the crowd – but those are offset by longer, more serious works that are deeply complex, the highlight of which is "Idiom 59", a great lost composition done especially for the Festival! The full performance runs for over an hour – with players that include Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Harry Carney, and Johnny Hodges – and other tunes include "Cop Out", "Rockin In Rhythm", "Skin Deep", "Jam With Sam", "Perdido", and "Jones".

Herb GellerHerb Geller Plays (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
EmArcy/Universal (Japan), Mid 50s. Used ... $14.99
A seminal piece of west coast bop from the mid 50s – featuring altoist Geller in group with wife Lorraine on piano, and either Curtis Counce or Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and either Larry Marable or Eldridge Freeman on drums. The groove's nice and hard, nice and stripped-down – and Geller proves himself to be a fantastic player with a soulful edge that sets him apart from most of his LA contemporaries. Titles include "Sweet Vinegar", "Love Is Like a Turtle", "Kahagon", "Breaking Through The Sound Barrier", and "Days I Never Knew". 12 tracks in all! CD

Very nice album of short jazzy cuts, recorded by Bill Harris, the guitarist for The Clovers. This Bill's not to be confused with the trombonist Bill, also from the same era – as his sound's a lot more soulful, with nice touches of his R&B roots. Titles include "Golden Sunset", "Baker's Dozen", "Spring", "Rock Bottom Blues", and "The Harris Touch". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Max RoachJazz In 3/4 Time (Trip reissue) ... LP
EmArcy, 1957. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A great little album from Max Roach – one that has him finding a whole new voice in jazz! The set was recorded on the heels of Max's time with Clifford Brown – and it's a great little album that has him bouncing back nicely from the loss by moving into a new realm that shows off his more lyrical side! The group on the album features Kenny Dorham, Sonny Rollins, Billy Wallace, and George Morrow – and as you'd guess by the title, most tunes are in a jazz waltz mode, which gives them a nicely dancing quality, soft and a bit exotic – almost modal at times – and a nice change from Roach's more full-on hardbop style of the Clifford Brown years. Titles include "Little Folks", "Lover", "The Most Beautiful Girl In the World", and "Blues Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

Dinah WashingtonIn The Land Of Hi Fi ... LP
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The Hi Fi in the title might imply that there's a bit more going on here arrangement-wise than on some of Dinah's other albums – but the scoring by Hal Mooney is still pretty straight, in a sophisticated jazzy mode that works best with the vocals, and which never overwhelms the singing for sake of some silly instrumental flourishes. Junior Mance plays piano with the group, and titles include "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "My Ideal", "Nothing Ever Changes My Love For You", "If I Were A Bell", "Say It Isn't So", and "What'll I Tell My Heart".

EmArcy/Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
About as classic as you can get for the Brown/Roach group – recorded at Basin Street with a group that includes Richie Powell on piano, Sonny Rollins on tenor, and George Morrow on bass. Tracks are tight and in that firey hardbop mode the pair pioneered – and titles include "Gertrude's Bounce", "Powell's Prances", "Time", "The Scene Is Clean", and "I'll Remember April". Most notable is the work by Powell on the record – as Bud's brother really shines here, turning out some great original compositions, and arranging the group with tight precision! Plus, the CD reissue features 4 bonus tracks – including alternates of some tunes on the record, and a few breakdowns. CD

✨✧ Max RoachMax Roach + 4 At Newport ... LP
EmArcy, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Incredible material from Max's "plus 4" group that included Ray Draper, George Coleman, Booker Little, and Art Davis! The band at the time was forging a haunting mix of hardbop and lyrical modernism, and was driven by Max's progressive vision and rich talent for selecting just the right players for just the right moments. This Newport set by the group is far better than most of the other late 50s Newport snoozers, and it catches them playing some nicely open-ended versions of tracks like Kenny Dorham's "Villa", Booker Little's "Minor Mode", and Eddie Vinson's "Tune Up". Also features a nice extended version of "Love For Sale". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Clark TerryClark Terry ... LP
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Fair ... Out Of Stock
A stunner – and one of Clark Terry's finest moments ever! The record has a rawness and groove that you'd hardly expect from his later albums – no surprise, though, considering that it was cut during that really hip time at Emarcy, when the label was working in a mode that was darker and more challenging than many of the smaller labels at the time. Credit is also due to arranger Quincy Jones – who pulls together a group that includes Horace Silver, Jimmy Cleveland, Cecil Payne, and Art Blakey, all into a fiercely grooving sound that recalls some of his most adventurous work of the 50s. The album kicks off with the stunning "Swahili", a tune that will instantly make you happy you bought the record – and other tracks include "Coop", "Chuckles", "Tuma", "Kitten", and "The Countess".

Sarah's working here in an intimate group arranged by Ernie Wilkins – filled with famous trumpet solo work by Clifford Brown, during his last few years on the planet - plus tenor from Paul Quinichette, flute from Herbie Mann, and piano from Jimmy Jones. Sarah's vocals are incredible – curving, turning, and lilting with a tremendous amount of jazz-based inflection – and titles include "Lullaby Of Birdland", "April In Paris", "September Song", "He's My Guy", and "I'm Glad There Is You".

✨✧ Helen MerrillCasa Forte ... CD
EmArcy/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from Helen Merrill – one of the few jazz singers we can think of who continued to grow stylistically as the years went on! This majestic album was recorded in 1980, and it features Merrill dipping into a modern Brazilian bag – working with baroque arrangements that blend jazz and strings in the style of some of Milton Nascimento's work, but handled here with a more sensitive approach that has a lot more focus on the vocals on a few tracks. The track selection is wonderful – and the album features great versions of songs like "Wave", "Natural Sounds", "Like A Lover", "Casa Forte", "Antonio's Song", "Vera Cruz", and "So Many Stars". Arrangements are by Torrie Zito, but done with even more jazz than usual – thanks to the presence of players like Sal Nistico on tenor, Urbie Green on trombone, Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar, and Zito himself on piano.

✨✧ Maynard FergusonMaynard Ferguson Octet ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
Maynard Ferguson's blowing full steam ahead here – working with an octet that's heavy on horn parts, but in a richly creative way! Ferguson nicely shows off some of his best influences from the 50s large group scene in LA – and gets some key help on the record from Bill Holman, who wrote almost all the tracks on the date, and no doubt arranged most of the material too. Holman's horn isn't heard on the set, but other players are equally great – and include Bob Gordon on baritone, Georgie Auld on tenor, Herb Geller on alto, Milt Bernhart on trombone, and Conte Candoli on trumpet – supported by a rhythm section that features Ian Bernhard on piano, Red Callender on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. As usual for the Emarcy years, Maynard plays a host of instruments – trumpet, bass trumpet, and valve trombone – and titles include "20 Rue De Madrid", "Super G", "Yeah", "What Was Her Name", "My New Flame", and "Inter-Space".

A rollicking batch of 60s instrumentals, served up by drummer June Gardner – billed as Gentleman June on the cover! June's from New Orleans, but the groove here is more in a Memphis mode – vamping along with a larger group in a post-Ray Charles mode – featuring tighter soul instrumental takes on hits of the 60s, plus a few key numbers written by producer Wardell Quezerque. And although June's the leader on drums, the real focus here is on the tenor and alto sax solos on the tracks – uncredited, but all pretty nice, and following in a mode that owes plenty to King Curtis. Titles include "99 Plus 1", "Last Night", "Hammerhead", "Hot Seat", "Mustard Greens", "Later Baby", and "The Joker". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John WilliamsJohn Williams Trio ... LP

Don't get this John Williams confused with the bigger-name soundtrack composer of later years – because this set is pure piano jazz all the way through, played by an artist who shined briefly with Stan Getz in the mid 50s! Although little-known, Williams is a great link between bop and mainstream piano jazz worlds at the time – and really sparkles on this session for Emarcy from the mid 50s – a record that goes way beyond simple standards and easy inflections – always voiced freshly by Williams in a mode that's modern, yet not self-consciously so. Rhythm is from Bill Anthony, Ernie Farrow, or Chuck Andrus on bass – and by Frank Isola or Jack Edie on drums. Titles include the originals "Shiloh", "Okeefenokee Holiday" – plus versions of "Manteca", "Like Someone In Love", "Baubles Bangles & Beads", and "Someday My Prince Will Come". LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, Late 50s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic album from Clark Terry – head and shoulders above most of his other work, with a sound that's probably only matched by his fine first LP for Emarcy. The record was cut during a batch of sessions that Argo put together in the late 50s – sessions that featured Paul Gonsalves and Jimmy Wood, both fellow Ellingtonians like Terry, and who also had albums come out under their own names during the sessions. The album is far more than just a bunch of small group Ellington material, though – as it swings with an edge that's as sharp as a razor, produced with a bit of roughness, and driving with a really rhythmic pulse. Tracks are short by very well handled – and titles include "Phlanges", "Daylite Express", "Blues For Daddy O's Jazz Patio Blues", "Clarke's Expedition", and "Trumpet Mouthpiece Blues".
