✨✧ Jimmy RogersChicago Bound ... CD
Chess, 1950s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's an apt one here, as Jimmy Rogers was one of the many bluesmen who started out in the south, but headed to Chicago for greater fame – which was a good thing for Chess Records, who managed to come some of these great sides in the 50s! Rogers both sings and plays guitar – the later of which has a sometimes snakey quality that almost echoes a slight bit of jazz – a mode that recalls some of the inventions T Bone Walker was putting down at the time, but a little bit rootsier overall. Players on these sessions include Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Otis Spann, and Willie Dixon – and tracks include "Money Marbles & Chalk", "Ludella", "You're The One", "Back Door Friend", "I Used To Have A Woman", "Sloppy Drunk", "Blues Leave Me Alone", and "Walking By Myself".

✨✧ Jimmy RogersThat's All Right (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The great Jimmy Rogers was a key figure on the Chicago blues scene in the 60s – yet apart from a few recordings for Chess, it always seemed that some of his best recordings were done overseas – as is the case with this great French session from the early 70s! Despite the overseas setting, Rogers is singing and playing guitar here with a core Chicago combo – Willie Mabon on piano, Louis Myers on guitar, Dave Myers on bass, and Fred Below on drums – a lineup who keep things nice and lean, while Jimmy gets plenty of time in the spotlight to do his thing. Titles include "Sloppy Drunk", "The Last Time", "Shelby Country", "Tricky Woman", "You Are So Sweet", and "Ludella". CD features 9 more bonus tracks! CD
(Part of the "True Blue Masters – Black & Blue" series!)

Jimmy GreeneWhile Looking Up ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2020. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
We're sure that Jimmy Greene shot that cover photo before the Covid-19 lockdown, but the image has a particularly strong resonance after all of us have faced that situation – which is why the "looking up" title on the album is very well placed! Greene's music has this sense of positivity that's really great – not an easy, blithely optimistic vibe – but this personal spirit that really comes through in his music – a vibe that's uplifting, but never too facile too – this great quality that comes through the interplay of Jimmy's work on tenor and soprano, with guitar from Lage Lund, piano and Fender Rhodes from Aaron Goldberg, bass from Reuben Rogers, and drums from Kendrick Scott – plus some guest vibes from Stefon Harris too. Most tracks are Greene originals – and titles include "Overreaction", "Steadfast", "Simple Prayer", "While Looking Up", and "April 4th". CD

✨✧ Jimmy GiuffreComplete 1947 to1953 Small Group Sessions – Vol 2 1953 ... CD
Blue Moon (Spain), 1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A much-needed collection of the early work of Jimmy Guiffre – one of the best sax talents of the west coast 50s scene, and an ever-committed modernist whose work here displays a keen early ear for the fresh and the new! The tunes appear to have been released on a variety of different labels – from RCA to Decca and a number of smaller imprints – and in most cases, Jimmy's blowing with a group led by a slightly more famous LA arranger or leader. The set features work in groups led by Shelly Manne, Shorty Rogers and Boots Brown – and titles include "Bunny", "Mallets", "Fugue", "Breakfast Ball", "Hip Boots", "Morpho", "Diablo's Dance", "The Pesky Serpent", "Powder Puff", and "Afrodesia". 20 tracks in all!

✨✧ Shorty RogersSwinging Mr Rogers (Jazzlore) ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A standout set from Shorty – tightly arranged numbers performed by a quartet that includes Jimmy Giuffre, Pete Jolly, Curtis Counce, and Shelly Manne – all working with Shorty in perfect west coast form! Despite the length of the tunes, the overall feel is similar to Rogers' excellent Wherever The Five Winds Blow album for RCA – and makes the record a great set, done without any gimmicks or tricks – and enough of the modern touch still left from Rogers' first few years on record. Titles include "Martians Go Home", "Trickleydidlier", "Not Really The Blues", and "Michele's Meditation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Al Cohn & Shorty RogersEast Coast – West Coast Scene ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1954. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic session in the tried and true marketing style of "East Coast vs West Coast" jazz, with one side of tracks by a group led by Al Cohn, and featuring Gene Quill, Hal McKusick, and Joe Newman. The other side's got Shorty Rogers representin' on the West Coast, with Jimmy Giuffre, Zoot Sims, Bud Shank, and Shelly Manne. The album's a nice batch of tracks, in the tightly arranged style that characterizes many of these mid-50's RCA jazz sessions. However, since Cohn's measured playing could never really be taken for New York Hot, and since his longtime partner Zoot Sims is part of Rogers' West Coast group, it's hard to say that these sides are really any sort of true battle between the coasts. Instead, though, the tracks are nice and long, with more room for solos than usual, and titles that include "Loki", "Cool Sunshine", and "Inside Out". CD

Capitol, 1951/1953. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Great early west coast jazz! This album puts together 2 different sessions both recorded by Gene Norman in the early 50s. One features Shorty Rogers heading up a great group with Art Pepper and Jimmy Giuffre – on the tracks "Four Mothers", "Didi", "Sam & The Lady", and "Popo". The other features classic cool Gerry Mulligan material – played by a tentet with Chet Baker, Bud Shank, and Bob Enevoldsen. Titles on that one include "Westwood Walk", "Simbah", "Walking Shoes", and "Rocker". LP, Vinyl record album

Great Jazz TrioClub New Yorker ... CD
Denon (Japan), 1983. Used ... $11.99
A slightly different setting than usual for the Great Jazz Trio – in that about half of this record features a violin added to the trio lineup, bringing a slight "with strings" quality to a few of the mellower tunes and ballads! The trio here features Hank Jones on piano at the helm, along with bass by Eddie Gomez and drums from Jimmy Cobb – both subtle accompanists who really get into the spirit of the session, which is mostly comprised of Gershwin tunes, plus 2 more from Rogers & Hart. Violin is by Lewis Eley, and titles include "Isn't It Romantic", "S'Wonderful", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "I've Got A Crush On You", "Manhattan", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". CD
(Out of print, early Japanese pressing. Inner pages of the booklet have some age spots.)

✨✧ Willie MabonShake That Thing ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (France), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
A great date from this legendary Chicago musician – an artist who recorded in the early days for Chess Records, then seemed to find his most welcome recording home overseas on albums like this! The material is from a 1973 session in France, but has all the grit and growl of a Chicago recording – with Willie on vocals, piano, and a bit of harmonica – and some sweet electric lines on guitar from the team of Louis Myers on lead, and Jimmy Rogers on rhythm – alongside Dave Myers on bass and Fred Below on drums. There's almost a slight current of funk at times, which Willie emphasizes with his piano in a great way – and titles include "Got To Have Some", "Shake That Thing", "Poison Ivy", "I'm Mad", "Lover Girl", "I Enjoyed Myself In Pau", "Hungry", and "Hey Girl". CD features a number of unissued tracks – including a few recorded at the same time in The Netherlands with guest vocals on one track by Koko Taylor! CD

Jack MillmanJazz Studio 4 – The Compositions Of Jack Millman ... LP
Decca, 1955. Very Good ... $24.99
A rare session as a leader by trumpeter Jack Millman – one that's based around his own compositions, and which a large group of west coast players alongside some lesser-known 50s talents! Players include Fred Aguirre, Lin Halliday, Artie Anto, Mike Pacheco, Curtis Counce, Herb Geller, Jimmy Giuffre, Howard Roberts, and Don Friedman – playing arrangements of Millman tunes by Shorty Rogers, Jimmy Giuffre, Jack Montrose, and Pete Rugolo. Tracks are short, but have wonderfully constructed horn passages – as well as some very nice use of Latin percussion – and titles include "Tom & Jerry", "Bolero De Mendez", "Groove Juice", "Pink Lady", "The Turk", and "Bambi".

✨✧ AcesChicago Beat (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970/1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from this Chicago group – material recorded in France, but which wails with the best sound of the small blues clubs on the south side at the time! The core group features Louis Myers on guitar and harmonica, Dave Myers on bass, and Fred Below on drums – joined by Eddie Taylor, Mickey Baker, and Jimmy Rogers on guitar at points – plus a bit of piano from the great Willie Mabon! The whole thing's excellent – very true to form, and more Delmark than some of the slicker blues recordings that were starting to show up at the time – on titles that include "Ace's Shuffle", "Tell Me Mama", "Take A Little Walk With Me", "Whole Lot Of Lovin", "Blues For Marcelle", and "Money Marbles & Chalk". CD features lots of bonus tracks – 6 more tracks added to the original album! CD

✨✧ Leon BryantMighty Body (Hotsy Totsy)/Finders Keepers (with bonus track) ... CD
De-Lite/Solid (Japan), 1981/1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of great records from Leon Bryant – both from the late De-Lite Records years, and offered up here back to back! First up is Mighty Body – a set also known as the self-titled Leon Bryant album – overlooked genius from Leon – a singer with a hell of a voice, and a range that can go from very low to super-soaring at the drop of a hat! And fortunately, that style works great here for the later De-Lite Records approach – funky club at its best, with grooves that are already great before Bryant steps into the mix – then find a special sort of magic, thanks to Leon's voice! There's also a good mix of balance, here – as the upbeat groovers are blended with some nice midtempo cuts, and one great stepper too. Titles include "Something More", "Come & Get It", "Just The Way You Like It", and "You Can Depend On Me". Next up is Finders Keepers, a record that would have been huge, had it gotten the kind of mainstream placement it deserved – which would have let the world hear what a great singer Leon Bryant could be! The set's got some top-shelf arrangements from Jimmy Mack and Sonny Sanders – both of whom are sliding perfectly into an 80s soul groove here, but still with all the hipper indie touches of the early years – which means that the whole thing perfectly avoids cliche or commercialism, while also giving Bryant the right sort of sophisticated vibe that works well with the depth of his voice. The range is almost one that we'd rank right up there with DJ Rogers – although with less of the spiritual vibe – and titles include "Are You Ready", "Honey", "Finders Keepers", "Your Kind Of Lovin", and "I Can See Me Loving You". CD also features the bonus track "Mighty Body (original 12" version)". CD
