Gary Burton, Hank Garland, & OthersAfter The Riot At Newport ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good ... $14.99
It's a little known fact that Nashville, although best remembered as a center of country music, has also given the world some pretty great jazz players – some of whom easily skirt the line between jazz and country studio work. This set's a great summation of that tradition – featuring jam session tracks by some of the city's best jazzmen at the turn of the 60s – Gary Burton, Hank Garland, Chet Atkins, Floyd Cramer, Bob Moore, Brenton Banks, and Boots Randolph. Some of the players are best known as pop instrumentalists, but open up here nicely in the album's more relaxed setting – summed up well by the tune "Relaxin", and heard over other tracks that include "Opus De Funk", "Nashville To Newport", "Round Midnight", and "Riot Chorus".

✨✧ Red GarlandGroovy ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Long tracks and plenty of room to move around – a perfect setting for the classic sound of the Red Garland Trio on Prestige! Despite the title, the album's not so much groovy as it is lyrically beautiful and filled with sensitivity – a key bridge between piano players of the mainstream in the years before Garland, and some of the bigger, bolder names that would rise up during the 60s soul jazz years. Rhythm is by Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and the longer tracks give Chambers plenty of room to express his unique talents on the bass. Titles include "Gone Again", "Hey Now", "Will You Still Be Mine", "What Can I Say Dear", and "C-Jam Blues". CD

Prestige, 1958. Very Good ... $34.99
One of the best by Red Garland for Prestige – a totally cooking record that features some great added conga work from Ray Barretto! Ray's presence really helps the record live up to its Latin-styled title – and Garland's usual trio with Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on drums seems to get a whole new life from the added percussion – really stepping things up with a bit more of a groove than usual! The title cut – "Manteca" – is an 8 minute jam that's gone onto become a real jazz dance classic – and other tracks include "Exactly Like You", "S'Wonderful", and "Mort's Report".

This album was recorded in 1980 in Tokyo. Garland plays piano and his band mates include Jamil Nasser on bass, Jimmy Cobb on drums and Lou Donaldson plays alto sax on two of the tracks. The record is a nice collection of standards and they include "That's All", "My Romance", "Moonlight In Vermont", "My Funny Valentine", "Street Of Dreams", "I Should Care", and "When Sunny Gets Blue".

Red Garland with Ray BarrettoRojo ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... $9.99
Red Garland's really cooking on this late 50s set – thanks to some added conga work from Ray Barretto on most of the album's tracks – and that great little groove that Barretto's percussion brought to some other soul jazz cookers like this from the time! Garland still gets plenty of space to spin out in that lyrical style he did better than just about anyone else – and core trio rhythm support is from George Joyner on bass and Charlie Persip on drums, who burn nicely when Barretto sits out – although we're definitely partial to the more complicated grooves featured with Ray. Titles include "Rojo", "Mr. Wonderful", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", and the nice groover "Ralph J Gleason Blues". CD

✨✧ Regional GarlandMixed Sugar – The Complete Works 1970 to 1987 ... CD
Now Again, 1970s/1980s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic anthology of Flint, MI soul great Regional Garland – 70s soul empires were built on lesser talent than you'll find on this set put together by Egon & Now Again! Garland is a performer, producer, songwriter and arranger of whom we were most familiar with for his work with the group Hunt's Determination – a taste of which is included here, along with Regional's recordings with The Perfections, 21st Generations, Mixed Sugar, Brilliance and others. Even the few Hunts Determination records we were familiar with show a fairly staggering stylistic range, while holding together as a tight whole – and that's all the more impressive with a broader collection of work with varying personnel here. The heart of the collection is early-to-late 70s recordings, from dancefloor soul, funk and strains of disco later in the decade – revelatory stuff for us. We knew the man was good, but, damn! The set also features several mid 80s recordings with that era's synth textured sound with the 70s soul vocals surprisingly well. Includes "I Need Love" & "Hey James" with 21st Generations, "Get On Down" & "Girl You Better Hurry" with The Perfections, "I Need Love" and "Are We Through" with Hunts Determination, "15 Ain't Young No More", "It's A Bad Feeling" and "Disco Jam Bam Bam" with Mixed Sugar, the previously unreleased "Gangster Girl" and "I'm Sad We've Broke Up", "I'm Falling In Love" with Vann & Reggie, "Hit Girl" with Brilliance and more. Nice notes with personnel, and a couple bonus versions "I Need Love". CD

Garland GreenSweet Loving Woman/Sending My Best Wishes ... 7-inch
Spring, 1974. Near Mint- ... $5.99
One of many great singles cut by Garland Green that never made it to LP! "Sweet Loving" is a fantastic mellow soul number – one that begins with a slow plodding bass, then gives way to some wonderfully pure focals from Garland, the kind he sings that always sends chills down our spine! "Sending" is more of an uptempo number – with these mad tripping strings that really give the cut a great sound. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice, cooking bop side, led by Red Garland and featuring 'Trane at his late 50s best, when he was moving between playing with the top East coast talents of the day, and playing with a ferocity that betrayed the direction he'd later take when he got really out. Donald Byrd's also in the frontline and George Joyner and Art Taylor round out the rhythm section, though Joyner's replaced by Paul Chambers on the trio number "Crazy Rhythm". The other three tracks featured here are "Billie's Bounce", "CTA" and a the nice, long slow burner "Lazy Mae" that takes up all of side 2. LP, Vinyl record album

MPS, 1971. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly wonderful 70s session from pianist Red Garland – thanks to the presence of saxophonist Jimmy Heath on the set! Although Red's most commonly heard in a trio setting, the presence of Heath here really makes the session stand out – as Jimmy's playing with all the best sense of warmth and soulfulness he brought to his own wonderful work of the early 70s – helping Red's rare session for MPS sparkle nicely with his added touches! Heath plays both tenor and soprano sax on the record, and other players include Peck Morrison on bass and Lenny McBrowne on drums. Titles include a great version of Jimmy's "The Quota" – plus "Love For Sale", "On A Clear Day", "The Squirrel", "For Carl", and "Days Of Wine & Roses". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Red GarlandSwingin On The Korner – Live At Keystone Korner (3LP set) ... LP
Resonance, 1977. Near Mint- 3LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Never-heard music from pianist Red Garland – working here with a unique trio that features Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – a lineup that only existed for this one set of performances from 1977! The material is great – maybe better than most Garland albums issued at the time – and the tracks were recorded with great care at the Keystone Korner club in San Francisco – at a level that's similar to the best Fantasy Records live dates from the venue, which were often like this album – a great chance for the artist to really stretch out and do something new! Garland still has that fluid, lyrical sensibility we love in his famous 50s sides – but there's also a much richer, more sophisticated approach to the piano as well – an even deeper sense of tonal color that comes through on the album's long tracks. Jones is great too – increasingly complex during these years, as you'd hear on his own recordings – and a great accompaniment to Red's new modes of expression. The whole thing presents 150 minutes of unreleased music, plus some great notes and photos too – and titles include "Love For Sale", "Billy Boy", "Blues In Bebop", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Bag's Groove", "On A Clear Day", "Straight No Chaser", "Autumn Leaves", and even a version of "The Christmas Song" (since the material was recorded a few weeks before Christmas!)

✨✧ Red GarlandNearness Of You ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A lesser-known post-Prestige album by Red Garland – played in a mellow mode that features plenty of smokey tunes and late nite numbers! The style's certainly more gentle, and almost more tentative, than Red on Prestige – and many numbers have him slowly stepping along the keys of the piano in a way that sometimes comes off as weary – but that great weariness that comes from having a heavy soul, an emotive depth that brings a deeply personal approach to some older standards, in a way that's quite different than before. The trio features Larry Ridley on bass and Frank Gant on drums – and titles include "Why Was I Born", "Where Or When", "Long Ago & Far Away", "Lush Life", "All Alone", and "Don't Worry About Me".

Exellent late work by Hawk – way darker than you'd guess! The set features Coleman Hawkins as the main soloist with the Red Garland trio, and it's got a very open-ended session that has him blowing tones and phrases that you'd never hear on his earlier albums – moody, angular, and surprisingly modern at times – clearly picking up a bit of inspiration from his time with Monk and some of the younger players of the period. The record's also got a slightly gutbuckety quality that's more deeply soulful than the usual Red Garland outing – and titles include the great long track "Bean's Blues", plus "Blues For Ron", "Red Beans", and "It's A Blue World".

The format is beautiful – simple small group backings by Tommy Flanagan, Wendell Marshall, and Osie Johnson – with Coleman out front, blowing these deep and mellow tenor lines that could stop a locomotive in its tracks!

Garland/Beat Rocket, Late 60s. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
A lost legacy in the always-hip Pacific Northwest scene of the 60s – rare psych and garage tracks from the tiny Garland Records – an Oregon imprint who only issued a small amount of singles, but also recorded some really excellent music back in the day! All the tracks here are pretty darn rare, and the package also features some unissued music too – work that shows a great evolution of northwest sounds since the bigger guitar bands of the early 60s – with some trippier, headier elements showing up in the instrumentation, lyrical modes, and even the production – which is often pretty darn hip for a small label like Garland. The package is one of the best discoveries we've heard from Sundazed/Beat Rocket in recent years – and titles include "Hip Girl" by Stop, "Night Life" by The Heard, "Take It As It Comes" by The Third Stone, "It'll Come Easy" by The Other Side, "Your Mind Was Never Free" by The Zero End, "Suzie Q" by Smack, "Love Is Such A Game" by Grant's Blue Boys, "True Justice" by The Third Stone, "Transparent Soul" by White Feather, and "Blow Your Mind" by The Zero End.

We're not entirely sure what a "stash box" means in terms of music – but after hearing this very groovy collection, we may well be using it as a term ourselves! The set features rare material recorded for the tiny Garland Records label in Salem, Oregon during the late 60s – but the sound and style is different than other Pacific Northwest material of that decade – often a bit sweeter and sunnier, with elements that resonate more strongly with changes taking place on the LA scene of the mid 60s – including some great harmony vocals on a few numbers, and a way of mixing slight psych touches with romping rhythms – all to to create sounds that are almost a garage equivalent of Sunshine Pop from bigger studios. Most of these tracks were never issued at the time, and even the few that were are pretty darn obscure – making the whole thing a treasure trove of really fresh music – with titles that include "Life Laced Leaf" by Inner Circle, "Maybe Today" by Tim Culbertson, "What Goes Up Must Come Down" by Fatty Twice Together, "Grey Day" by The Wild Side, "Parousia" by Lawe, "We'll Meet Again" by Tyme, "Part Time Love" by Will Logan, "Keep On Looing" by The Ultimate, and "Tears" by The New Dawn.

Prestige, Late 50s/1964. Very Good- ... $19.99
A great title for this one – given how many believers found the path to John Coltrane in the 60s! The session's a bit earlier, though – a later release of material that Trane recorded during his first solo stretch as a leader at Prestige Records – with long, open lines that are given plenty of strong accompaniment by the Red Garland Trio! The tracks are all quite long – the title track takes up all of side one – and the record features either Donald Byrd or Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, both giving a bit of bite that's different than Coltrane's music with Miles Davis, and which almost echoes his work with Wilbur Harden. Titles include "The Believer", "Nakatini Serenade", and "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's got a beautifully laidback feel that prefaces some of the Coltrane's more exploratory work on Impulse and Atlantic – but one that still also has the earthy, straight ahead feel of his best early years on Prestige – a great combination that makes the record a key moment in the early career of The Great One. Tracks are all quite long – not exactly blowing session tunes, but done with a feel that's more open than some of the other Coltrane albums of the time – and titles include "Black Pearls", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "Sweet Sapphire Blues".

The groove here is a bit harder, heavier, and hardbop-inflected than some of Trane's late 50s sides with Red Garland – thanks to a lineup that features Lee Morgan on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Kenny Drew on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. There's a crisp modern edge to the record that really holds up beautifully – even after years of play – and titles include "Blue Train, "Locomotion", "Moment's Notice", and "Lazy Bird". CD

John ColtraneColtrane 58 – Prestige Recordings (5CD set) ... CD
Prestige/Craft, 1958. New Copy 5CD ... $66.99 74.99
A fantastic document of this breakout moment for the legendary John Coltrane – every single Prestige Records recording from the important year of 1958, a time when the tenorist really emerged as a leader, while still also sharing his talents in collaborative sessions too! This isn't the Coltrane of Love Supreme, but there's already a majestically soulful, deeply personal conception taking place here – one that makes Coltrane's sound instantly compelling, with long solos throughout that really show the spark of his young imagination at work! Much of this material was recorded during the year, then released later in many cut-up packages – so the set marks the first time that these tracks have all been put together properly, along with some of the "blowing session" or co-leader dates for Prestige from the time – and while many feature the core trio of pianist Red Garland on rhythm, other musicians include Freddie Hubbard and Donald Byrd on trumpet, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb and Art Taylor on drums. The set features 37 tracks in all, wrapped up in a really beautiful package with a huge book that collects rare photos and other ephemera, and very extensive liner notes from Ashley Khan – who's written extensively on Coltrane. Titles include "Lush Life", "Nakatini Serenade", "Theme For Ernie", "I Never Knew", "Big Paul", "Freight Trane", "Invitation", "Love Thy Neighbor", "Bahia", "Goldsboro Express", "Lyresto", "You Say You Care", "Russian Lullaby", "The Believer", "I See Your Face Before Me", and "Little Melonae".

John ColtraneJohn Coltrane (Traneing In/Soultrane) ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
2 classic John Coltrane albums in a single set! The package first offers up Traneing In – a beautiful album that more than lives up to its evocative title – an early session from John Coltrane, filled with long tracks that slide along brilliantly! As with many other classic Prestige albums from Trane, backing is by the trio of Red Garland piano, Paul Chambers bass, and Art Taylor drums – all holding back nicely when Coltrane opens up on his solos, but also coloring the tunes with soulful lyricism in a masterful understatement. The sound is about as classic as you can get during these early years in The Great One's career – and titles include "Traneing In", "Slow Dance", "Soft Lights & Sweet Music", and "Bass Blues". Next is Soultrane – a bold early statement from a young John Coltrane – and an album that really has him expanding his talents as a tenor soloist! Coltrane's working here in open-ended quartet format – with backing from the Red Garland trio that includes Paul Chambers and Art Taylor – on a set of longer tunes that really let the young Trane stretch out on his solos, unobstructed by any other horns in the lineup. There's a nice mix of hardbop ideals, gentle ballads, and personal soul to the set – and titles include Coltrane's classic reading of Tadd Dameron's "Good Bait", plus "I Want To Talk About You", "Russian Lullaby", and "Theme For Ernie".

John ColtraneLast Trane ... LP
Prestige, 1957/1958. Very Good ... $14.99
A nice set – despite being kind of a put-together batch of tunes! The album's titled "The Last Trane" because it represents the last material that Prestige Records had in its vault from the time that John Coltrane was recording for the label in the late 50s. Titles were recorded on 3 different dates from 1957 and 1958 – mostly with Red Garland on piano, and also featuring some additional horn work by Donald Byrd on 2 tracks. The album's got a great spare track called "Slowtrane" – one that features Coltrane playing with only bass and drums for accompaniment – and which recalls the genius of some of his sessions for Transition or Imperial. Byrd's blowing alongside the tenor on versions of "Lover" and "Come Rain Or Come Shine" – and the set's rounded up by a nice open-ended track called "By The Numbers", which has a warm bluesy solo by Trane!

The original tracks were issued on a groundbreaking run of albums that include the classics Cookin, Relaxin, Steamin, and Workin With The Miles Davis Quintet – all with Davis on trumpet, Coltrane on tenor, and rhythm from the trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. But in addition to the 32 tracks of studio material from the group – presented on the first 3 CDs in the set – the package also features 8 more live numbers, recorded for the Tonight Show in 1955, and live at the Blue Note in Philly in 1956 and at Cafe Bohemia in 1958!

Most of the record features Miles Davis recording with a quintet that includes Thelonious Monk on piano, Milt Jackson on vibes, Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – on longer versions of "The Man I Love" (in 2 takes), "Swing Spring", and "Bemsha Swing". These sides have a great bop/modern approach that's a nice extension of the styles that Jackson and Davis were playing on Blue Note in earlier years. Also added to the set is one number from 1956 – a version of "Round Midnight" recorded in early sessions with John Coltrane on tenor, and the Red Garland Trio on rhythm – different than the rest of the tracks, but still quite nice!

Rare live work from the Miles Davis quintet with John Coltrane – issued here with some even more interesting bonus tracks! The first 5 tracks on the album feature Davis and Coltrane blowing live in Den Haag in April of 1960 – playing long renditions of Davis-tuned classics that include "So What", "Walkin", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Round Midnight". These are followed by a Studio 61 TV broadcast of "So What" with the same group from 1959 – but then go back even further, to 1955, when Coltrane had first met up with Davis – as the quintet (with Red Garland) plays live on "Max Is Making Wax" and "It Never Entered My Mind", both recorded for the Tonight Show! The last 2 tracks on the set feature the same group a year later, recorded at the Blue Note in Philly – on versions of "Tune Up" and "Walkin". 10 tracks in all – and a great document of this important group!

The session's relatively spare – mostly just alto sax, sarod, and violin from L Subramaniam – plus additional tabla and tanpura to set up a hypnotically rhythmic groove. Tunes build slowly, and beautifully – and Handy's saxophone is light years away from his crossover recordings for ABC a few years before – filled with the depth of soul we'd come to love in his classic sides of the 60s.

A very unusual record from a time when America was starting to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Civil War – a moment that yielded a surprisingly large number of war-themed recordings, although done with a vibe that was pure 60s overall! Marijohn Wilkin is a folk singer by trade, but one who also sang a fair bit of country too – and here, she brings together both of those elements in a session directed by guitarist Hank Garland, with backup vocals from Nashville stalwarts the Jordanaires! The tunes are mostly older numbers, but given a tight punch that's almost early pop folk – with Marijohn's voice upfront in the mix, recorded with a nice degree of echo that would work well with pop records too. Titles include "Johnny Is My Darling", "The Southern Soldier Boy", "Oh Freedom", "Aura Lee", "Two Brothers", and "Weeping Sad & Lonely". Even better, though, are the bonus tracks here – which are numbers that are more country overall, and have great production that really knows what to do with Wilkin as a singer – titles that include "Wayfaring Blues", "Cold Cold Heart", "What Can I Do To Please You", "Babara Allen", "Sparks", "Higher Than High", "Whip Poor Whill", "If You're Sure", and "Carmel By The Sea".

Most of the material here comes through with a good deal of clarity, and the CD features 12 tracks that include "Four", "Walkin", "Two Bass Hit", "All Of You", "Round Midnight", "Sid's Ahead", "Bye Bye Blackbird", "Straight No Chaser", and "Bag's Groove".

✨✧ Miles DavisRelaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the classic early Miles Davis & John Coltrane sessions for Prestige – a well-crafted quintet album that shows Miles finding a stronger voice than ever, and Coltrane beginning to emerge as a key force on his own! Backing is subtle and soulful – handled by the trio of Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – and although the tracks are mostly ballads and standards, they're all nicely given the Davis treatment on the set, turned into beautiful new vehicles for jazz imagination and improvisation! Titles include "If I Were A Bell", "I Could Write A Book", "Oleo", and "Woody'n You". CD

✨✧ Miles Davis featuring John ColtraneMiles Davis Quintet With John Coltrane Live In Den Haag (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1956/1959/1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare live work from the Miles Davis quintet with John Coltrane – issued here with some even more interesting bonus tracks! The first 5 tracks on the album feature Davis and Coltrane blowing live in Den Haag in April of 1960 – playing long renditions of Davis-tuned classics that include "So What", "Walkin", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Round Midnight". These are followed by a Studio 61 TV broadcast of "So What" with the same group from 1959 – but then go back even further, to 1955, when Coltrane had first met up with Davis – as the quintet (with Red Garland) plays live on "Max Is Making Wax" and "It Never Entered My Mind", both recorded for the Tonight Show! The last 2 tracks on the set feature the same group a year later, recorded at the Blue Note in Philly – on versions of "Tune Up" and "Walkin". 10 tracks in all – and a great document of this important group!

Prestige/Craft, Mid 50s. New Copy 6LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful overview of some of the most legendary material in the catalog of both Miles Davis and John Coltrane – quintet collaborations for Prestige Records from the late 50s, presented here with all master and alternate takes, plus a full bonus CD of unreleased material! The original tracks were issued on a groundbreaking run of albums that include the classics Cookin, Relaxin, Steamin, and Workin With The Miles Davis Quintet – all with Davis on trumpet, Coltrane on tenor, and rhythm from the trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. But in addition to the 33 tracks of studio material from the group – presented on the first 5LPs in the set – the package also features 10 more live numbers, recorded for the Tonight Show in 1955, and live at the Blue Note in Philly in 1956 and at Cafe Bohemia in 1958! Original studio tunes include "Stablemates", "The Theme", "How Am I To Know", "Four", "Salt Peanuts", "Woody'n You", "Ahmad's Blues", "Well You Needn't", "Half Nelson", "Oleo", "Tune Up", and "Blues By Five".

✨✧ Junior ManceHappy Time ... LP
Jazzland, 1962. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's nothing hokey about this one – despite a "happy time" title that might make you think so – as the album's one of the first great statements from pianist Junior Mance, a player who was really coming into his own at the time! Rhythm here is by the team of Ron Carter on bass and Mickey Roker on drums – and as with other Mance records from the time, there's a style that's certainly soul jazz directed, but which also comes off with a bit more sensitivity at times – in modes that occasionally recall Red Garland or Tommy Flanagan. Titles include the original numbers "Taggie's Tune", "Happy Time", and "Out South" – plus versions of "Azure Te", "Simple Waltz", and "Tin Tin Deo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny RollinsTenor Madness ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking album from Rollins, largely for the extended track "Tenor Madness", which runs on for 13 minutes, and features him and Coltrane blowing head to head – redefining the sound of the tenor sax in jazz through the course of that amazing track! Backing is by the Red Garland/Paul Chambers/Philly Joe Jones group that backed up 'Trane on many of his Prestige sides, and they work equally well with Rollins – especially on the ballads "When Your Lover Has Gone" and "My Reverie", plus the lyrical "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Phil WoodsSugan ... LP
Status, 1957. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The genius of Phil Woods emerges fully on this rare album from 1957 – an unusually-titled session, and one of the few to really set Phil up in a looser, more intimate setting! The approach is a bit like Woods sublime work for Epic Records, but more soulful too – and very different than some of his chamber jazz work on RCA, or the more blowing-session styled records on Prestige. Here, everything falls into place beautifully – as Phil's razor-sharp tones sparkle strongly on some well-conceived tracks that also feature trumpet work by Ray Copeland – and rhythm from the trio of Red Garland on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums. The tunes are bop-oriented, but Woods already stretches out way past any cliches – really finding his voice and showing a tremendous amount of growth in just a few years. Titles include "Steeplechase", "Au Prive", "Last Fling", "Sugan", and "Green Pines". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing with Van Gelder stamp, in great shape! Cover has some very light wear, but is nice overall.)

✨✧ John ColtraneColtrane (Prestige) ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Classic early John Coltrane for Prestige – less a bold statement as a leader than a strong batch of blowing session-styled tracks that show how well Coltrane could hold his own with more established players! The groups on the set vary from track to track – and feature players that include Sahib Shihab, Mal Waldron, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Al Heath – plus underappreciated Philly trumpeter Johnnie Splawn. Trane's in great form here – even though the overall set's a bit less structured than some of his later albums – and his tone and solo approach are already stepping out from the rest of the pack with great vigor! Titles include "Bakai", "Time Was", "Straight Street", and "Chronic Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneMore Lasting Than Bronze (Lush Life/Coltrane) ... LP
Prestige, 1957/1958. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Strong work – even if the album is sort of a collection of tracks that Trane recorded for Prestige, instead of a discreet album. The 2LP set is from the mid 70s – and combines tracks originally issued on the albums Lush Life and Coltrane. Side one of Lush Life features Coltrane's tenor in a spare setting with Earl May on bass and Art Taylor on drums – playing mellow tunes like "I Love You" and "Like Someone In Love", as well as the original "Trane's Slow Blues". Side two features a blowing session mode – with Donald Byrd, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Louis Hayes – on the cuts "Lush Life" and "I Hear A Rhapsody". Coltrane is a classic set for Prestige – a set of blowing session tracks with Trane in the lead, featuring players like Sahib Shihab, Mal Waldron, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Al Heath. Trane's in great form here – even though the overall set's a bit less structured than some of his later albums – and his tone and solo approach are already stepping out from the rest of the pack with great vigor! Titles include "Bakai", "Time Was", "Straight Street", and "Chronic Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisMilestones ... LP
Columbia, 1958. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of our 50s favorites by Miles Davis – and a record that offers the same twin-sax sound as his classic Kind Of Blue – with both John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley working alongside Miles in the group! Rhythm here is by the Prestige-era trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but it's the two saxophonists who really help Davis shape the feel of the record, pushing things past the initial Coltrane/Davis groove with a really wonderful sense of space and sound! Titles include the classic "Milestones", plus "Two Bass Hit", "Dr Jeckyll", and "Sid's Ahead". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has a split top seam held with tape and some wear.)

✨✧ Miles DavisWorkin' With The Miles Davis Quintet ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the four essential quintet sides Miles Davis cut for Prestige in the mid 50s – all modern jazz classics by anyone's measure, along with Steamin', Relaxin' and Cookin'. These quintet sides established Davis and John Coltrane as a significant force to be reckoned with, and helped set the tone for much of the small group and post bop jazz cut in that era. Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones lay a smooth swinging pulse for Miles and Trane to blow over on the set – and titles include "It Never Entered My Mind", "Four", "In Your Own Sweet Way", "The Theme (takes 1 & 2)", "Trane's Blues", "Ahmad's Blues" and "Half Nelson".
