Johnny LytleHappy Ground! (Jazzland LP – 1961) ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good- ... $5.99
A killer set of grooves from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – one of the first and one of the few to ever combine vibes with Hammond organ – in this case, the work of Milt Harris on the keys! The group is a very rhythmic trio, thanks to Harris on the bass pedals, and Penny Hinant on the drums – and titles include the great "Lela", a jazz dance classic if there ever was one – and a precursor to some of Lytle's work to come on the Tuba label. Other tracks include "Secret Love", "Happy Ground", "It's All Right With Me", and "Tag Along". LP, Vinyl record album
(Teal label Orpheum pressing. Cover has aged tape on all seams, light surface wear, and a name in marker.)

✨✧ Beady BelleAt Welding Bridge ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2010. Used ... $2.99
A beautiful album from Beady Belle – the group and wonderful vessel for the seductive, entrancing voice and songs of Beate S. Lech – possibly their best yet! Beady Belle have made deeply engaging blend of modern jazzy soul and beautiful mood music for most of the outs, taking a step back just a bit from the slightly more crossover ready songs of Belvedere album into more intimate, yet just was inviting material on At Welding Bridge. Beate's vocals are as sultry and hypnotic as ever, singing with warmth and genuine emotion in elegant, but not overly precious way – and the instrumentation suits her perfectly. Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer or other keys, some truly excellent guitar, clarinet, flute, electric bass and percussion frame the vocals on most tracks, and some of the tracks were cut at home, which we believe, given the warmth and intimacy. Titles include "Diamond In The Rough", "Come Home", "The Storm", "Runaway Mind", "Bird's-Eye View", "Turn Back Time", "Press Of Canvas", "Leeway", "Ambush" and "Walk On Air". CD

Mari BoineEight Seasons ... CD
Jazzland/Northside, 2002. Used ... $6.99
The lovely vocals of Mari Boine are paired with the far-thinking production work of Bugge Wesseltoft, who also plays keyboards on the set. Bugge's presence makes for an album that's quite different than some of Mari's earlier work – a bit starker, and with less of the easy world production that's always kept us from enjoying her fully. That's not to say that the charms of earlier records are gone, or that the album's an all-out electronic affair that resembles Wesseltoft's own work – just to say that it's a strong blending of cultures with a really unique sound. Titles include "Liegga Gokcas", "Guovssahasaid Ajagattis", "Song For The Unborn", "Boadan Nuppi Bealde", and "Sarakha Vina". CD

Sidsel EndresenUndertow ... CD
Jazzland/Universal, 2001. Used ... $6.99
New work from Sidsel Endresen – one of the compelling Norewegian artists currently part of the Jazzland underground future of electronic jazz! Sidsel's one of the few singers to emerge from the scene – and he's got a spare breathy voice that's halfway between Bjork and Jay Jay Johansson – singing in English, but slightly off-kilter because of his accent, and the way the vocals are layered amidst moody electronics and soundscapey backdrops. Music on the album is created with help from Bugge Wesseltoft, Nils Petter Molvaer, and Roger Ludvigsen – and titles include "Angel", "Undertow", "You Cover Time", "Travelling Still", and "Blessed Instant".

✨✧ Red GarlandNearness Of You ... CD
Jazzland/OJC, 1961. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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". CD

Johnny LytleNice & Easy ... LP
Jazzland, 1962. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An unusual record for vibist Johnny Lytle – one that has him breaking from his usual trio formation, to work in a super-tight lineup that includes some soul jazz heavyweights! The sound's quite different than Lytle's usual mix of organ and vibes, but still pretty darn great – thanks to a group that includes Bobby Timmons on piano, Johnny Griffin on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. Johnny's vibes are out front in the mix – leaping around some really inventive grooves that have a rollicking early 60s soul jazz approach – and titles include "Soul Time", "322-Wow!", "Coroner's Blues", and "That's All".

Junior ManceJunior Mance Trio At The Village Vanguard (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Jazzland (Japan), 1961. Used ... $13.99
A firey little trio session from Junior Mance – one that features tracks taken at a pace that's even more uptempo than usual, and which really pushes his skills on the keys! The speed of the set is by no means a detriment to Mance's soulful playing – and if anything, the record stands as one of his most compelling from the period – not just a batch of soul jazz styles that were soon becoming cliches, but a vibrant example of the full range of Mance's talents, caught in a very spontaneous setting. Trio members include Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Smokey Blues", "Bingo Domingo", "Looptown", "Letter From Home", and "Girl Of My Dreams". CD

Thelonious MonkThelonious Monk With John Coltrane (SACD) ... CD
Jazzland, 1957. Used ... $14.99
An interesting little LP that compiles alternate takes from Monk's classic album for Riverside – Monk's Music – the session that featured the unique twin tenor lineup of John Coltrane and Coleman Hawkins. The album features 4 different alternates of tunes from that set – "Nutty", "Epistrophy", "Functional", and "Off Minor" – plus 2 other tunes played by a quartet that features Monk, Coltrane, Wilbur Ware, and Shadow Wilson – on the tunes "Ruby My Dear" and "Trinkle Trinkle". A real odd one in the catalog, but with some great music! CD

Sonny RedBreezing ... LP
Jazzland, 1960. Very Good ... $59.99
A real winner from Sonny Red's initial burst upon the New York scene – and a great mix of soul jazz and hardbop, all augmented by Red's wonderful tone! The group's a sextet, in the tight Jazzland style – and players include Barry Harris, Blue Mitchell, and Yusef Lateef. Tracks are relatively short, but solos are precise – and a few of the cuts feature Red as the only main soloist. Titles include "Ditty", "The New Blues", "Brother B", and "Teef".

Jazzland, 1961. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
Some of jazz's most sensitive artists get together in a lyrical set of light-handed ditties. Shearing's piano is a surprisingly nice complement to the vibes/bass/guitar sound of The Montgomery Brothers – and the group is augmented by some nice Latin percussion. Tracks are short, and titles include "Double Deal", "Mambo In Chimes", "Lois Ann", "And Then I Wrote", and "No Hard Feelings". LP, Vinyl record album

Bugge Wesseltoft (New Conception Of Jazz)Moving ... CD
Jazzland/Universal (UK), 2001. Used ... $9.99
Maybe the best album so far by this groundbreaking Norweigian keyboardist! Bugge plays Fender Rhodes and grand piano on the set – and it's a warm batch of uptempo tracks that push the envelope a lot further than some of his previous work, sort of a mix of jazzy house and ECM-ish soundscapes, wrapped up in an icily clean style of production that really makes the set sparkle with the "new conception" that's promised in the title! Tracks include "Moving", "Yellow Is The Color", "Lone", "Heim", and "Gare Du Nord". CD

✨✧ Dexter GordonResurgence (aka Resugrence Of Dexter Gordon) ... LP
Jazzland/Prestige, 1960. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album by Dexter Gordon – his first after a number of years spent without recording in the late 50s, and one that marked a real return to serious growth as a player during the 60s! The album takes the same approach as Dexter's soon to be recorded Blue Note classics – putting the tenorman in the company of some excellent sidemen – but the group's a bit larger too, with added horns from Richard Boon on trombone and Martin Banks on trumpet – in addition to rhythm from the trio of Dolo Coker on piano, Charles Green on bass, and Lawrence Marable on drums. There's some nice head arrangements that open up to some well-crafted tenor lines from Dex – and the set's got an extra-special feature in that it was produced by Cannonball Adderly as part of his "overlooked talents" series for Jazzland. Hard to believe that Gordon would qualify for that distinction at the time – especially given his rise a few years later! Titles include "Affair In Havana", "Field Day", "Jodi", "Home Run", and "Dolo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joe HarriottSouthern Horizons ... LP
Jazzland/Down At Dawn (Italy), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent! This record is one of the lost chapters in the career of the great British alto player Joe Harriott. The session was recorded before Joe's experimental "Abstract" release, and way before his "Indo Jazz Fusions" experiments – but it's still an excellent session of off-kilter bop that shows what a keen talent Joe was on the alto. He's playing here in the company of the great Shake Keane on trumpet – another fellow West Indian expatriate who was living in London – along with Coleridge Goode on bass, Harry South on piano, and Bobby Orr on drums – plus some bonus from Frank Holder on a few tracks, which sound mighty nice. The session was probably released in the UK, but this US issue is the only time we ever seem to see it – and it's not a record that shows up often. Tracks include "Liggin", "Caravan", "Senor Blues", "Count Twelve", and "Southern Horizons". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny RollinsSonny's Time ... LP
Jazzland, Late 50s/1962. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice batch of tracks that had been recorded earlier in Rollins career (during the late 50s), but which were unearthed in 1962 in an effort to cash in on Rollins' return to jazz playing. Even though the motivation behind the album was a bit mercenary, though, it's a nice thing that it came out – as these tracks are very nice, and feature Rollins playing some excellent pre-retirement hardbop. Some of the cuts feature a quartet with Sonny Clark on piano, and others have Rollins in the Kenny Dorham Quintet (one of which even has some additional harp playing!) with Oscar Pettiford, Hank Jones, and Max Roach. Titles include "Mangoes", "Cutie", "Funky Hotel Blues", and "La Villa". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bugge WesseltoftFilming ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The greatest album to date from one of the most enigmatic talents in modern music! Bugge Wesseltoft has been a key force in the Scandinavian underground for years – bringing together worlds of jazz, electronics, and underground pop – not only through his own music, but recordings he's produced and promoted for many others. For this set, Bugge breaks out of his own style even further – offering up tunes that shift effortlessly from jazzy groovers to moody soundscapes – sometimes featuring full group performances (including a bit of tenor from Joshua Redman!), and sometimes just Bugge alone on the keys. The depth of his vision is quite striking, and even fresher than on previous albums – and titles include "Skog", "Hi Is", "Oh Ye", "Piano", "Hope", "El", "Frik", and "Indie". CD

✨✧ Beady BelleDedication ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Beady Belle never lets us down – and even though the lady's been making music for well over a decade, she still turns out some of the most consistently thoughtful soul we can think of! Forget the fact that the singer's on a Norwegian label, as the lyrics here are all in English, backed by warmly jazzy instrumentation that's always made Beady's music hugely popular with our customers for American neo-soul – and which puts her in the same territory as other classic "in the know" artists, such as Monday Michiru or Incognito! The keyboards are especially nice this time around – as thoughtful as the lyrics and the vocals – and titles include "I Run You Ragged", "Hold Your Breath", "Traces", "Dedication", "Waste Of Grace", "Last Drop Of Blood", "Can You Smile", and "Out Of Orbit".

✨✧ Harold LandWest Coast Blues! ... LP
Jazzland, 1960. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from Harold Land, and a great set that has a hard soul jazz feel – despite the "west coast" in the title. Harold's playing with a great group that includes Barry Harris, Joe Gordon, and Sam Jones – as well as guitarist Wes Montgomery, who's work on the session really gives it a soulful edge! The cover lists the rhythm section as "all-soul", and it's right, as the accompaniment for Harold here is more sensitive, and more swinging than on most of his other records. The set sparkles with brilliance, and with great relaxed soulful playing. Cuts include "Compulsion", "Ursula", "Terrain", "Klactoveedsedstene", and "West Coast Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bugge WesseltoftNew Conception Of Jazz Live ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
Magical work from keyboardist Bugge Wesseltoft – one of the leading lights of the ultra-hip Scandinavian scene! The album features all live tracks – recorded by Bugge and his New Conception Of Jazz group, with a freer, more open feel than their also-excellent studio work. The focus here is a bit more on jazzy improvisation – using Bugge's work on Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano as the basis for larger sonic explorations that well earn the "new conception" tag! As further proof of this, the songs are mostly not even titled – just named after the location in which their event took place – with titles like "Live At Bla", "Sharing Live In Paris", "Live In Cologne", "Live In Amiens", and "Lone Live In Paris". The album also includes 2 studio tracks – "Feel Good" and "Existence". CD

Jazzland (Norway), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully dynamic set from Mohamed Issa Haji – aka Matona – a musician from Zanzibar with a specialty in Taarab, which is an unusual hybrid of African, Arabic, and Indian musical styles! The group here features Matona on oud, vocals, and percussion – illuminated by very colorful elements from guitar, tenor, bass, drums, violin, and percussion – plus vocals from the rest of the group as well – and Gora Mohamed Gora plays the rich-voiced qanun on three of the album's ten tracks, which adds this depth to the record that's amazing! Instrumental passages dominate more than the vocals – and there's some really fantastic interplay between some of the Norwegian musicians in the group too – on titles that include "Aziza", "Sikitiko", "Alaminadura", "Zena", "Ashairejea", and "Ashiki Baya".

Johnny GriffinLittle Giant ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of Johnny Griffin's hard blowing LPs as a leader for Jazzland – recorded with a crack lineup that includes Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, Wynton Kelly on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Albert Heath on drums! This is the kind of work that the term "hard bop" was coined for – sharp-edged jazz at its best – informed strongly by earlier bop and modern modes, but also played with a deeper dose of soul overall. The six players come together perfectly throughout – working with a tightness that matches most Blue Note work of the time – and titles are a great set of tracks that includes 3 by Chicago pianist Norman Simmons, and 1 by the great Babs Gonzales. Tunes include "Olive Refractions", "The Message", "Lonely One", "Playmates", and "63rd Street Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ben WebsterSee You At The Fair ... CD
Impulse, 1964. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great little album from Ben Webster – perhaps not his most sophisticated, jazz-wise, but done up in a cool cover that has him standing in front of the steel globe at the 1964 World's Fair in New York. The music on the disc has a similar optimistic approach – as Ben solos lightly over rhythms by either Hank Jones or Roger Kellaway on piano (and a bit of harpsichord), plus bass and drums backing by Richard Davis and Osie Johnson. The album's got a great rolling soul jazz number called "See You At The Fair", and a very odd crashing harpsichord number called "Lullaby Of Jazzland" – plus the tunes "Fall Of Love", "While We're Dancing", and "Our Love Is Here To Stay".

A fantastic lost soul jazz groover! The record is clearly one of the best ever cut by this fantastically overlooked bass player – and it's filled with a great set of players that includes Bobby Timmons, Nat Adderley, Charles Davis, and Jimmy Heath. The whole thing leaps along with that tight mix of hardbop, soul jazz, and spiritual modernism that would occasionally show up on the best Riverside/Jazzland session – and the level of writing and playing is superb throughout! Jones plays both bass and cello, and he kicks the group into Jazz Messengers-like precision for the duration of the session. Titles include "Home", "Some Kinda Mean", "The Old Country", and a great bass-heavy version of Timmons' "So Tired". CD
