James Moody/George WallingtonJazz Classics – The Beginning & End Of Bop ... LP
Blue Note, 1948/1954. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $7.99
A great late 60s album that brings together earlier bop sides recorded for Blue Note – key material from two of the biggest modernists in the early days of the label! The James Moody tracks are from an early 10" session – recorded in 1948 with Dave Burns on trumpet, Art Blakey on drums, James Forman on piano, and Cecil Payne on baritone – all working under the name James Moody & His Modernists, on tracks that include "Oh Henry", "Tropicana", "The Fuller Bop Man", and "Moodamorphis" – all penned by Gil Fuller. Side two features a 1954 session led by pianist George Wallington with Burns on trumpet, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, and Frank Foster on tenor – on titles that include "Festival", "Bumpkins", "Frankie & Johnny", and "Baby Grand". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George WallingtonComplete Live At The Cafe Bohemia (plus George Wallington Showcase) ... CD
Prestige/Lonehill (Spain), 1954/1955. Used 2CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A great 2CD set that's filled with some of the best 50s work ever recorded by pianist George Wallington – a key full album plus bonus tracks, and material from an additional 10" LP! Live At The Cafe Bohemia is real standout in the catalog of Wallington – a very cooking live set, recorded with an expanded quintet! The record supposedly showcases Wallington's style (or gimmick) – called "The Peck", and explained as a series of incomplete phrases from the players – but to us, this approach is just prime 50s hardbop at its most inventive – a mode that might be dubbed "call and response", in which players trade lines back and forth with great dynamism and energy! Players here are all very well suited to the task – and include Donald Byrd on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all working with great boppish fire on a set of tunes that include "Sweet Blanche", "Minor March", "Jay Mac's Crib", and "Bohemia After Dark". And as an added bonus, this 2CD set features all the alternate takes from the album – a whopping 14 Bohemia titles in all! And added to those are another 10 tracks from the Blue Note 10" LP The George Wallington Showcase – recorded in 1954, with a largeish group that includes Dave Burns on trumpet, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, and Danny Bank on baritone – all playing to Quincy Jones arrangements. Titles include "Baby Grand", "Festival", "Bumpins", and a nice take on "Summertime". CD

Prestige/OJC, 1952/1953. Used ... Just Sold Out!
This is the kind of killer bop piano stuff that made Wallington a legend early on – collecting classic trios originally recorded for release as 10" LP in the early days of Prestige! The material features Wallington in three different groups, featuring Max Roach on drums, and either Charles Mingus, Oscar Pettiford or Curley Russell on bass. 15 titles in all including "Love Beat", "Escalating", "Laura", "Summer Rain", "Red, White & Blue", "Arriverderci", "Tenderly", "Squeezer's Breezer", "Among Friends", "Variations", "My Nephew & I", "Cuckoo Around The Clock" and "When Your Old Wedding Ring Was New".

✨✧ Frank Foster/George WallingtonHere Comes Frank Foster/George Wallington Showcase ... CD
Blue Note, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 rare 10" jazz albums from the early days of Blue Note – issued here on one great CD that has all the original cover art, great sound, and even a few bonus cuts! Tenorist Frank Foster is at the core of both of these sessions – as he leads the group on his own album, and he's the dominant reed soloist on the George Wallington session. Although Foster's often lumped into the cliche camp for his long years with Basie, he shines like a rough diamond on sessions like these, proving that he's got a tone and a style that he keeps tightly reserved for small group sessions like these. On the Here Comes Frank Foster album, he plays with the great Gildo Mahones on piano – on tracks like "Little Red", "Blues For Benny", and "How I Spent The Night". The second album of the CD is led by bop piano legend George Wallington, and has a slightly larger group that also includes Dave Burns on trumpet, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, and Danny Bank on baritone. Titles on that one include "Baby Grand", "Festival", "Bumpins", and a nice take on "Summertime". 16 cuts in all, and a very sharp-looking package of some of the best rare jazz of the 50s! CD

✨✧ George WallingtonNew York Scene ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
George Wallington's New York Scene is a very sharp one – touched by the fire of George's earliest bop influences, but expanded out here with a nice degree of late 50s modernism! The group has a drum-tight performance throughout – with Phil Woods on alto and Donald Byrd on trumpet providing an especially strong frontline – every bit as sharp as the best heard on Woods' seminal records from the same generation, but touched a bit more by some of Wallington's more introspective modes of later years. Rhythm is by Teddy Kotick on bass and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the album strikes a perfect balance between modern expression and personal interpretation – on titles that include "In Salah", "Up Tochickon Creek", "Dis Mornin", "Indian Summer", and "Sol's Ollie".

Savoy/Nippon (Japan), 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare quintet session from George Wallington – and a smoking little record we'd rate right up there with his other non-trio sides of the 50s! The set's done in that hard-edge Savoy mode of the time – relaxed and open, with lots of dark elements in the rhythms – and beautifully blown solos over the top from Donald Byrd on trumpet and Phil Woods on alto, plus plenty of piano from George! Knobby Totah handles bass and Nick Stabulas handles drums – and titles include "Dance of the Infidels", "Ow", "Before Dawn", and "Strange Music". CD

✨✧ George WallingtonKnight Music ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Great work from bop legend George Wallington – one of the last records in an initial run of 50s strengths from the pianist – and a set that features some great original compositions of his own! The set's a bit unusual for Atlantic Records at the time – almost more of a Prestige or Blue Note-styled date – as Wallington's loose, open, and really hits his groove – working alongside Teddy Kotick on bass and Nick Stabulis on drums, both players whose understated approach lets Wallington sparkle even more in the spotlight. The complexity of his performance is wonderful – even while swinging – and titles include "World Weary", "Billie's Tune", "Godchild", "Serendipity", and "Up Jumped The Devil". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George WallingtonPrestidigator ... LP
East West, 1957. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest albums ever from bop pianist George Wallington – a quintet session recorded for Atlantic's short-lived East/West subsidiary, right around the same time as his better-known group dates for Prestige! The core trio features Wallington alongside Teddy Kotick on bass and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the sharp-edged and imaginative tenor of JR Monterose appears on all tracks but one – a few of which also feature incredible bass trumpet from Jerry Lloyd! The sound is often more modern and inventive than Wallington's other non-trio dates of the 50s – somewhat playful, but also dominated by a deeper sense of soul – heard especially strongly on the Monterose compositions "The Prestidigitator" and "Jouons", as well as the Mose Allison numbers "In Salah", "Promised Land", and "Rural Route" – all slightly unusual choices for Wallington!

Proper (UK), Late 40s. Used ... $3.99

Seminal work from the legendary Gil Melle – one of his early 10" sessions for Blue Note, prime 50s modern jazz from the original Melle cover right down to the music in the grooves! The session features 2 different groups, and has Melle's haunting tenor (not baritone) playing amidst other bop-era modernists like Eddie Bert, Tal Farlow, George Wallington, and Max Roach – coming together on tunes that are as magical as the titles might imply – "Mars", "Four Moons", "Sunset Concerto", "The Gears", "October", "Cyclotron", and "Venus". Monica Dell also sings some incredible wordless vocals on a few tunes! LP, Vinyl record album

A classic early album on Prestige – and one that features some heavy bop sessions cut for early 78s, all nicely packaged in a great cover by the famous Mad Magazine cartoonist Don Martin!
