✨✧ Ike QuebecHeavy Soul ... CD
Blue Note, 1961. Used ... $9.99
Heavy soul from Ike Quebec – one of Blue Note's greatest players of the 78 era in the 40s, stepping out here on one of his brilliant comeback sets from the early 60s! The set features Ike blowing in an all soul jazz mode – working with a quartet that includes some great work from organist Freddie Roach – swinging here in a great straight ahead mode, and really pushing Ike to lay out some of the best solos of his later Blue Note years. There's a few tracks on the set that step out in a tight modal jazz groove – organ vamping as Ike blows away – and titles include "Heavy Soul", "Que's Dilemma", "Acquitted", and a very spooky version of "Nature Boy".

Ike QuebecSoul Samba (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1962. Used ... $18.99
One of the few Blue Note albums with a bossa groove – and a great one too! The record features soulful tenor star Ike Quebec blowing in front of Brazilian-styled rhythms laid out by a combo that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, and a duo of Latin percussionists! Willie Bobo plays drums on the session, and the cuts have a short groovy feel, with a sax-heavy lead, in a similar style to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – but much more soulful overall, and with a nicely rougher feel on the rhythms. Really great stuff, and with titles that include "Loie", "Goin Home", "Favela", "Blue Samba", and "Shu Shu". CD
(1994 Japanese pressing.)

✨✧ Ike QuebecWith A Song In My Heart ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer album that stands as a wonderful complement to Ike Quebec's classic LP sessions for Blue Note – and a set that's even more noteworthy for a rare early appearance of keyboardist Earl Van Dyke! Earl's best known for later famous work at Motown – but here, he plays some great mellow Hammond – really laying back nicely, alongside Quebec's soulful tenor – in a group that also features Willie Jones on guitar, Sam Jones on bass, and Wilbert Hogan on drums. The tunes here were all originally recorded as potential singles for Quebec, but most weren't issued by Blue Note at the time – and they're pulled together here as a really well-crafted album that's essential listening if you're a fan of the tremendous tenorist! Titles include "Intermezzo", "With A Song In My Heart", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "What Is There To Say", "All The Way", and "But Not For Me". CD

✨✧ Ike QuebecEasy Living ... LP
Blue Note, 1962/1987. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A killer set of work from this tremendous tenorist – rare sides, but titles that stand with his best classics from the time! Lost material that Ike Quebec recorded for Blue Note in the early 60s, but which wasn't issued until the 80s. A few of the tracks on the album were issued on the rare short-lived 1981 album Congo Lament, but this is the first time the tracks were brought together for the first time. Half of the material features a quartet with Quebec on tenor, Sonny Clark on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and the other half feature a larger group with Stanley Turrentine and Bennie Green added in. Overall, the larger group titles are a lot harder grooving than some of Quebec's other work – especially the titles "Congo Lament" and "Que's Pill". Other tracks have a nice mellow easy feel, with great gutsy tenor work from the master! Titles include "Easy Living", "Nancy", and "I've Got A Crush On You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ike QuebecIt Might As Well Be Spring ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of the all-time great 60s albums from Blue Note – a seminal session from tenor legend Ike Quebec, cut in a warm, mellow style that's simply wonderful! Ike's working here with a quartet that includes organist Freddie Roach – a perfect match for the Quebec tone of the time – with a lean and soulful bottom sound on the Hammond that lets Ike soar on his solos over the top! The group plays a set of mellow standards, plus a few originals – all in the warm soulful vein that was Quebec's virtual domain at the time. Titles include "Lover Man", "A Light Reprieve", and "Easy – Don't Hurt". An incredible Blue Note release, and rare, too (we almost never see a vinyl copy!) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ike QuebecComplete Blue Note 45 Sessions ... CD
Blue Note, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The "flipside" of Ike Quebec's legendary run of albums for Blue Note – a huge set of material recorded only as 45 singles during his same stretch at the label! Although Quebec's work as a soulful tenorist has been well documented and reissued over the years on albums like Blue & Sentimental and Heavy Soul, Ike also cut a fair number of singles aimed at the jukebox and radio crowds of the time – tunes that were more in the gutsy tenor and organ mode recorded by labels like Prestige or Chess, and which never made it onto any of the full-length sets for Blue Note! This great little package brings together all of Ike's 26 tracks recorded for 45s in the late 50s and early 60s – material that features organ on most numbers, played by either Ike Quebec, Sir Charles Thompson, or the enigmatic Edwin Swanston. Quebec's tone and phrasing is similar to his Blue Note LP work of the period, but there's also a more relaxed, and more punctuated feel to these recordings – one that's not as rough or raw as other jukebox tenor stars of the time, but which still steps out past the usual Blue Note poise, especially on the original numbers. Some tracks were briefly issued on the 80s collection With A Song In My Heart, and in a Mosaic box – but this is the first proper Blue Note album of the material. Titles include "Buzzard Lope", "Zonky", "Blue Monday", "Later For The Rock", "Dear John", "Blue Friday", "Ill Wind", "Mardis Gras", "Everything Happens To Me", "Me N Mabe", "All The Way", "Intermezzo", "All Of Me", and "Imagination".

Kenny Burrell with Coleman HawkinsBluesy Burrell ... CD
Moodsville/OJC, 1962. Used ... $8.99
A great little album from Kenny Burrell – one that has Ray Barretto's congas on most cuts, giving the album a similar Latiny feel to Kenny's classic Midnight Blue album on Blue Note! The Latin undercurrent hits both New York and bossa-styled modes – a great setting for Burrell's thin, snakey lines on guitar – and also a surprisingly great showcase for the tenor of Coleman Hawkins, which really opens up nicely in this setting – in ways that are a bit like his own bossa date for Impulse, or the sound of Ike Quebec's Soul Samba album! Rhythm is by Tommy Flanagan on piano, Major Holley on bass, and Eddie Locke on drums – and titles include "Tres Talbras", "Montono Blues", "Guilty", "No More", and "It's Getting Dark". CD

Grant GreenBorn To Be Blue ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... $9.99
A rare one from Grant Green – recorded in 1962, but not issued until 1985. The set's one of Green's early classics recorded with pianist Sonny Clark – a deeply soulful player who really had the right feel for Green's more lyrical soul jazz numbers. The rest of the group includes Ike Quebec on tenor, plus Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. The tracks are laidback and introspective – but still have enough of a groove to fit with Green's best work at the time. Titles include "Count Every Star", "If I Should Lose You", "Born To Be Blue", and "My One And Only Love". CD

Grant GreenRetrospective 1961 to 1966 (4CD set) ... CD
Blue Note, 1960s. Used 4 CDs ... $44.99
A wonderful 4 disc box set documenting one of our favorite jazz guitarist's work for one of our favorite jazz labels. We initially got hip to Grant Green on his amazing funky jazz sides, but as we made our way back through his recording career, we discovered a wealth of sublime material. The tracks collected here are pulled from over 30 albums, and span a wide section of the post bop spectrum, with two discs worth focusing on his work in organ combos, the second on quartet settings, like the Grant Green/Sonny Clark set on Mosaic and the last his work on hard bop sides. As you might imagine, the list of sidemen's pretty exhaustive, and so is the track lising, but rest assured there's plenty of solid material here, like "Baby's Minor Lope" off Grant's First Stand, "Swingin At Sugar Ray's" off Baby Face Willette's Face To Face, "Bop Bop Bing Bash" off George Braith's Soul Stream, "Let 'Em Roll" off John Patton's Let 'Em Roll, "Talkin' Bout JC" off Talkin' Bout, "Plaza Del Toros" off Larry Young's "Into Somethin", "Round Midnight" off Green Street, "It Ain't Necessarily So" off Nigeria, "Uh Huh" off Hank Mobley's Workout, "Blues For Charlie" off Ike Quebec's Blue & Sentimental and "A Tune For Richard" off Horace Parlan's Happy Frame Of Mind, plus many, many more.

Dodo GreeneMy Hour Of Need ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $38.99 44.99
One of the few vocal albums on Blue Note's short lived 89000 series – and one of the only few ever cut by the obscure singer Dodo Greene! Green's got this raspy voice that's just great – somewhat fragile, but not in a wispy way – kind of honest and human, and somewhere in the Billie Holiday tradition, yet very much her own bag too! The backings are quite unique – handled by an excellent group led by tenorist Ike Quebec, who's also working with Grant Green on guitar and Sir Charles Thompson on organ. The band is nice, and Quebec gets in a few solos, but the real highlight is Greene, whose beautifully fragile voice gives haunting renditions of standards like "Let There Be Love", "My Hour Of Need", "Trouble In Mind", and "I Won't Cry Anymore". A fairly mournful album, and with a nice moody late night feel. LP, Vinyl record album

The record features 8 extended tracks, with an all-star jam session lineup that includes Blue Mitchell, Jackie McLean, and Ike Quebec. Down and dirty organ jazz, played in the open jam style that Blue Note was using with Jimmy after the initial trio sides.

VariousLost Sessions (previously unissued material by Blue Note artists) ... CD
Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... $18.99
A treasure for all jazz fans worldwide! As is known to many, the great Blue Note label often recorded more material than it could issue on a regular basis – and some of the label's best bits often got lost in the cracks, and never saw the light of day! Over the past 30 years, many of these lost albums have come out on their own – but there's still been a lot of great single tracks that have never been issued before. This CD corrects that trend, by bringing together a sumptious batch of single titles from groups that are hardly (or never) represented in Blue Note's regular line of releases. You'll get Charlie Rouse leading a quintet on the track "One For Five"; Tadd Dameron heading up a large group on "Bevan Beeps", "The Elder Speaks", and "Aloof Spoof"; Sonny Stitt wailing with Dexter Gordon on "Lady Be Good"; Fred Jackson playing tenor with John Patton and Grant Green on "Cowbell Boogie"; Ike Quebec blowing with The Three Sounds on "Blues On Trial", and Herbie Hancock leading a very hip 2-guitar group on the track "Don't Even Go There". Like finding a time machine, this CD will introduce you to a world of jazz history you never even imagined! CD

Blue Note, 1961. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer hardbop session from the early 60s – one of Sonny Clark's later sides for Blue Note, and an album that features a great lineup of players that includes lesser-known Blue Note hornmen Charlie Rouse and Tommy Turrentine! The record crackles with the energy and imagination of Clark's best work for the label – leaping and loping along the grooves with a free-thinking approach to the tunes, and coming up with some exotically-tinged takes on the hardbop sound of the time – yet still allowing plenty of space for searing solo work. Ike Quebec joins the group on a few tracks as well, and titles include some of Clark's best compositions – like "Melody for C" and "Voodoo" – as well as the tracks "Eric Walks", "Midnight Mambo", and "Deep In A Dream".

A very nice groover from Jimmy – and a session that was recorded earlier, but not issued by Blue Note until the end of the 60s. The format is hard-wailing sextet – with Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Ike Quebec on tenor, and Jackie McLean on alto. Jimmy's usual trio at the time holds the fort on the rhythm department, and all players groove very nicely on a set of 4 long tracks that includes "Big Fat Mama", "Plain Talk", and "Time After Time". Weird cover, too – with a lady's face in a cup of coffee! LP, Vinyl record album

No blues, but very much in the pocket – thanks to a killer collection of classics from the mighty Blue Note label! The set's straight jazz all the way through – but all that near-perfect Blue Note quality from the label's most classic years – that stretch when its artists were redefining hardbop and jazz with their sense of poise and power!

Blue Note (Germany), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The Latin side of Blue Note Records – and the Brazilian one, too – served up here in a series that brought together classic work from the label in a special sort of groove – tunes that are maybe more influenced by south of the border rhythms than you'd expect from the soul jazz and hardbop artists who originally made the records! There's a bit of bossa here, but the rhythms open up into a fair bit more, too – and it's great to hear the difference in these musicians as they change things up from straighter bop modes, and use the new grooves to open up their solos and rework their phrasing too! This side of Blue Note was sometimes buried in a world of collectors looking for more familiar hardbop, but it really lives again, thanks tot he Blue Bossa collection. 3CD set features 41 tracks in all – including "Afreaka" by Lee Morgan, "Avila & Tequila" by Hank Mobley, "Chitlins Con Carne" by Kenny Burrell, "Congalegre" by Horace Parlan, "Back Down To The Tropics" by Charlie Rouse, "Latona" by Big John Patton, "Girl From Ipanema" by Lou Rawls, "La Fiesta" by Stanley Turrentine, "Headin South" by Horace Parlan, "La Malanga" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Mama Inez" by Grant Green, "Swingin The Samba" by Horace Silver, "Upa Neguinho" by Duke Pearson, "Mambo Inn" by Grant Green, "Ghana" by Donald Byrd, "Love For Sale" by Dexter Gordon, "Samba De Orfeu" by Charlie Rouse, "Afrodisia" by Kenny Dorham, "Sambop" by Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio, "Loi" by Ike Quebec, "Sandalia Dela" by Duke Pearson, "Congo Lament" by Ike Quebec, "Corcovado" by Grant Green, "Tin Tin Deo" by James Moody, "El Gaucho" by Wayne Shorter, and "Stormy" by Duke Pearson.

Jean-Pierre Massiera & OthersMidnight Massiera – The B-Music Of Jean-Pierre Massiera ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $29.99
Mad music from Jean-Pierre Massiera – the legendary producer who was steeped in the hippest sounds of the French scene of the 60s, then moved to Quebec to forge a wild style that was all his own! Jean-Pierre rarely ever issued work under his own name – and instead recorded under a host of pseudonyms, or in projects with other artists – which made for an ever-shifting array of new names, new sounds, and unusual records – a good deal of which are collected here in this set! The package really focuses on the freakiest side of Massiera's sound – the fuzzy, electric qualities that were first picked up from a European scene that included early prog, analog electronics, and hip pop experiments by folks like Pierre Henry or Jean-Claude Vannier – moved well into Massiera's own territory over the course of recordings like this – with lots of weird studio tricks, odd effects, and other hip bits. There's a really funky feel to many of the tracks here – that psyche-funk groove you might find on other Finders Keepers collections – and Andy Votel has written some very copious notes for the package, fully detailing Jean-Pierre's massive (and massively weird!) musical legacy. 18 tracks in all – including "Space Woman" by Herman's Rocket, "Onomatopaeia" by Human Egg, "Bizarre" by Les Chats Renaissance, "Visitors" by Visitors, "Ivresse Des Profondeurs" by SEM Studios, "L'Eletrocute" by Jesus, "Itubo Del Anno" by Basile, "Mao Mao" by The Starlights, "Pop Or Not" by Chico Magnetic Band, "Kriminal Theme" by Les Maledictus Sound, "Egg" by Atlantide, "Sing Sing" by Chris Gallbert, and "Secret La Vielle Dame" by Afterlife.
