PassportDoldinger Jubilee 75 ... CD
Warner, 1975. Used ... $4.99
A great follow-up to the Doldinger Jubilee album of a few years previous – easily one of the most successful Passport records for Atlantic, thanks to a host of great guest stars! The format is followed again for this recording too – by augmenting the core Passport quartet with players that include Philip Catherine on guitar, Johnny Griffin on tenor, and Les McCann on Fender Rhodes – plus a surprising bit of vocals and guitar from Buddy Guy! Les steps out on their rendition of his "Compared To What" – and other tracks are more fusion-centrist numbers in the Passport mode – with titles that include "Albatros Song", "Abracadabra", "Jadoo", and "Angel Wings".

Sequel (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set of rare female soul from the 60s – 24 hard-hitting tracks from the Jubilee label, a sweet mix of early soul and R&B sounds, all served up with a very righteous edge! The set is nicely divided into segments of songs by the artists included, allowing you to get a better feel of some of the more obscure singers on the set, and supporting the work with a good set of notes. Titles include "Drive Daddy Drive", "Blue Heaven", and "I Went To Your Wedding" by Little Sylvia; "Heavenly Father", "It's Raining", and "I Love You" by Edna McGriff; "There Goes My Heart" and "Really Real" by Viola Watkins; "Housewife Blues", "I've Lost", and "How Could You" by The Enchanters; and "Just A Letter", "I Know", and "Any Day Love Walks In" by Carole Fran.

Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A spare and sweet little set from the team of Eddie Costa and Vinnie Burke – one of the best of the east coast chamber jazz groups of the mid 50s! The pair's trio has Eddie on piano and vibes, Vinnie on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – all working together to craft light, rhythmic versions of tunes that really change them up rhythmically – working in the most playful mode of the time to freely create over the top of familiar numbers that include "Fascinating Rhythm", "It Could Happen To You", "Sweet & Lovely", "Yesterdays", and "Let's Do It". The set also features two nice originals – "Unison Blues" and "Pile Driver". LP, Vinyl record album

Matt DennisWelcome Matt Dennis ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
A lesser-known set from vocalist Matt Dennis – not as well-remembered as his 50s dates for RCA and Kapp, but still pretty darn great nonetheless! Matt's working here with full backings from Sy Oliver – in a set that showcases his talents more as a singer than a songwriter – but which still manages to include a few great Dennis originals. And despite a cover that looks a bit lurid – with Dennis cornering a model inside a hotel room – the overall feel of the record is quite homey and domestic, with tunes that echo images of hearth and family, but often with the kind of nod and a wink which you might expect from Matt's usual approach to a tune. Titles include "Home", "Welcome Mat", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "By The Fireside", "A Cup Of Coffe A Sandwich & You", "Let's Put Out The Lights", and "Your Family". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Draper with John ColtraneTuba Jazz ... CD
Jubilee (Japan), 1958. Used ... $11.99
Fantastic work – and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by Ray Draper, a jazz tuba player, with an approach to the instrument that's a lot better than you might think! Draper plays the tuba like the best baritone saxophonists – using the lower registers of the instrument to groove around in tight step with the basslines, but always still managing to swing – a remarkable feat, given the heaviness of the instrument! Draper's talents were quite respected at the time – both by Jackie McLean, who used him on a record, and by John Coltrane, who makes a rare appearance here as a sideman on the set! The mixture of Coltrane's angularity and Draper's bassiness is sublime – and the album's filled with great tracks that have a fresh late 50s modernist hardbop approach. Titles include "Essii"s Dance", "Yesterdays", "Oleo", and "Doxy". CD

Lou McGarityMusic From Some Like It Hot ... LP
Jubilee, 1959. Very Good ... $9.99
An album that's way better than you might expect – not the easy cash-in on the film Some Like It Hot that's telegraphed by the cover – but instead a tight trad jazz date by trombonist Lou McGarity – done in some of the same mature modes as Jack Teagarden's work from the same time! The group's a quintet, with lots of room for Lou's bold solos in the lead – and other players include Dick Cary on trumpet and piano, Jack Lesberg on bass, George Barnes on guitar, and Don Marino on drums. Barnes provides a nice link between classic and modern styles – and titles include "Runnin wild", "La Cumparasita", "I'm Thru With Love", "Sugar Blues", "Sweet Sue Just You", and "Stairway To The Stars".

Titles include "Mondongo", "Cachita", "Mi Bumbane", "Adele", "Wham", and "Coco Seco". LP, Vinyl record album

Randy WestonPiano A La Mode ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the most obscure Randy Weston albums of the 50s – and one of the most striking, too! The title and cover are a bit unassuming, but Weston's in his prime modern mode throughout – working both through his own compositions, and on some amazing remakes of older standards – all with understated brilliance, in the company of bassist Peck Morrison and drummer Connie Kay. The original tunes have that jagged edge and spiraling sense of line that Weston was bringing to jazz at the period – and those tunes are offset by a surprising sense of lyricism on some of the standards. Titles include "Earth Birth", "Saucer Eyes", "I Got Rhythm", "Gingerbread", "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen", "Cocktails For Two", "Honeysuckle Rose" and "Fe-Double-U Blues".

Whoppers indeed – a killer collection of vocal group material from the 50s – issued here in a classic package with a great "juvenile delinquent" cover! The tracks here are almost pre-doo wop in their historicity – work done when the genre was just getting started, by artists who helped bridge musical styles from an earlier era. Titles include "Sweethearts On Parade" and "Take Me Back To Heaven" by The Dominoes, "Marie" and "Sugar Lump" by The Four Tunes, "Crying In The Chapel" and "It's Too Soon To Know" by The Orioles, and "Green Eyes" and "I'll Always Be In Love With You" by The Ravens.

✨✧ Herb GellerFire In The West (aka Herb Geller) ... LP
Jubilee, 1957. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of a record – easily one of Herb Geller's best, and a set that definitely has the "fire" promised in the title! There's a bite to the record we really love – a quality in Geller's tone that really blows us away – and which has had us going back and re-evaluating his career after hearing this set. Part of the strength is the setting – a nicely dark vibe, typical to some of the other Jubilee jazz sessions of the time – played by a lineup that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Harold Land on tenor, Lou Levy on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Lawrence Marable on bass – an ensemble that have a fuller punch than some of Geller's other groups in the 60s. The track's are easily grooving hardbop numbers – nearly all originals, and handled with a style that's much more New York oriented than you'd expect from Geller's west coast roots. Titles include "S'Pacific View", "The Fruit", "Marable Eyes", "Melrose & Sam", and "An Air For The Heir". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lou LevyLou Levy Plays Baby Grand Jazz ... LP
Jubilee, 1958. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Given that a busty babe is leaning into the left side of the piano keyboard on the cover, we'd almost expect Lou Levy to focus mostly on the lighter notes on the right – but instead, he really opens up with some great deep notes on the cover, and takes the album far past anything you might expect! Levy's a really subtle player, one who never overstates his obvious ear for modern tones and musical elements – but he's really got a way of bringing them into his music in ways you wouldn't expect – either in the way he shapes a note on the mellower cuts, or comes up with a groove on the more lively ones. There's none of the flowery sounds you might expect from the "baby grand" title – and instead, Lou is in very comfortable territory – working in trio format with the great Max Bennett on bass, and drummer Gus Johnson – on titles that include "Little Girl", "Undecided", "The Gypsy", "Sunday Kind Of Love", "I've Found A New Baby", and "You Don't Know What Love Is".

ArgusArgus ... LP
Sommor (Spain), 1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Plenty of fuzz, heavy drums, and basslines that certainly make our speakers rumble – all in support of the raw lead vocals that really send the whole thing home! Argus are an obscure UK hard rock quartet from the early 70s – and their near-complete work is presented here, with a searing intensity that should have gotten these guys a big label contract at the time – especially when guitarist Del Watkins really takes off with his solos! The set also features a few tracks by Anaconda – a later incarnation of the group, added here to round out the five Argus tracks – and that later group actually features some jazzy flute, which is a nice touch. Argus titles include "Road Of Life", "Friend Of Mine", "Twenty Four Hours", and "Superstition" – and Anaconda titles include "Funk Song", "Jubilee Shuffle", and "77 St Thomas Road".

Freddie Douggie (Ben LaMar Gay & JayVe Montgomery)Freddie Douggie – Live On Juneteenth ... Cassette
International Anthem, 2019. New Copy ... $8.99 11.00
One of the most enigmatic records we've ever heard on the International Anthem label – and that's really saying a lot, given their unique musical legacy! Freddie Douggie is a collaboration between Ben LaMar Gay and JayVe Montgomery – working here in modes that go way beyond jazz and improvised music – with all these unusual sonic touches that paint a richly colorful portrait of the Juneteenth day of celebration! Some tracks might use percussion or a stringed instrument, others are more electronic in nature – and vocals are used occasionally, but not often – and as with some of the best releases on International Anthem, the music is very powerful and moving – but in ways we can hardly describe! Titles include "Slave To Employee", "Gravel Spring", "Any Train We Can Catch", "Dutty Rice", "Jubilee", "LEVAS", "Freedom Day", and "Such A Frolic". Cassette

Dodo MarmarosaOn The Coast 1945 to 1947 & 1952 ... CD
Uptown, Mid 40s/1952. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99 24.99
Many great slices of work from the early years of pianist Dodo Marmarosa – actually the only years that had Dodo really shining in the limelight – as he made only a handful of rare recordings between 1953 and 1961! Yet these sides are equally rare – as the set brings together obscure 78rpm singles, sometimes with Dodo as the leader, sometimes working with other groups – and also includes a fair bit of rare broadcast material too, really tracing a great evolution of Marmarosa's style over a few short years! The package is overflowing with material – far more than for us to mention in just a few short notes – but we can tell you that it includes Atomic Records 78rpm releases under the name of the Dodo Marmarosa Quartet with Lucky Thompson on tenor, the Dodo Marmarosa Trio, Lyle Griffin & His Orchestra, and the Barney Kessel All Stars – plus Down Beat label 78s by the Lucky Thompson Quartet with Marmarosa on piano, Irra Records material by singer Miss Danna, and Encore Records work by Ray Linn & His Orchestra. There's also MacGregor transcription tracks by the Dodo Marmarosa Trio, Jubilee Transcriptions by the Just Jazz All Stars with Howard McGhee on trumpet, and radio broadcast material by Boyd Raeburn All-Stars, Viven Garry Trio, and Lucky Thompson Quartet – all featuring Marmarosa. The set mostly features mid-40s work – but ends with two long tracks recorded at the Lighthouse in 1952 – with Dodo in a group that also includes Shorty Rogers on trumpet, Jimmy Giuffre and Bob Cooper on tenors, and Milt Bernhart on trombone.

James MoodyHey It's James Moody ... LP
Argo, 1959. Sealed ... $13.99
A magnificent little album – one of James Moody's first collaborations with arranger Tom McIntosh – one of the most sensitive jazz voices of his time. McIntosh works in a world of many tones and colors – and he really pushes Moody past straighter solo approaches, into a mode where he's shaping sound into complex emotion – hitting a level of soulfulness that might never been expected in earlier years! Moody plays both tenor and flute on the session, and rhythm is by a piano-less trio that features John Gray on guitar, Eldee Young on bass, and Clarence Johnston on drums. And if that's not enough, Eddie Jefferson joins in on vocals on 2 tracks – lending his own lyrics to Moody's great original "Last Train From Overbrook", and doing a great reading of "Summertime". Other tracks include "Stella By Starlight", "Indian Summer", "Please Say Yes", and "Blue Jubilee". LP, Vinyl record album

This reissue set also includes the Bud Powell trio sides which were issued separately as Jazz At Massey Hall Vol 2. The quintet runs down "Perdido", "Salt Peanuts", "All The Things You Are", "Wee", "Hot House" and "A Night In Tunisia" and the trio sides are "Embraceable You", "Sure Thing", "My Devotion", "Polka Dots & Moon Beams", "Cherokee", "Jubilee", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "My Heart Stood Still", "I Want To Be Happy" and "Lullaby Of Birdland".

A great lost session by Stan The Man – recorded in the early 60s when he was doing some of his best work, but not issued by Blue Note until the mid 80s! The album stands right up there with other Blue Note gems of the time – especially albums like Comin Your Way and Jubilee Shout, both of which also had to wait many years to be discovered – and Turrentine's got all the bold, raspy tones we love in his youthful horn – a sense of phrasing and energy that's quite different than his later years. The group on the record helps keep the vibe a lot – with some excellent guitar from Grant Green, always a great one on a date like this – plus Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The interplay between Green and Turrentine is wonderful – even before they start soloing – and titles include "ZT's Blues", "Be My Love", "The Lamp Is Low", and "The Way You Look Tonight".

Sun/Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Gospel genius from the legendary Sun Records – an imprint usually associated with the earliest roots of rockabilly, but also a Memphis powerhouse that managed to capture a number of different styles surprisingly well during the 50s! Sun had one of its big early hits with The Prisonaires – a group of convicts who could harmonize beautifully – and many of these tracks follow a similar vibe, with that up-close, uncluttered style of recording that Sam Phillips did so well – which really lets the vocals of the groups come through! But there's also some surprising crossover moments going on here too – as some tracks feature more familiar Sun artists singing spiritual tunes – showing just how much the gospel side of the market was during these formative years of country, pop, and rock. The set's got 32 tracks in all – a huge amount of overlooked material from Sun – and titles include "Softly & Tenderly" by The Prisonaires, "Forgive Me Lord" by Southern Jubilee Singers, "I Need Jesus" by Song Fellows, "Amazing Grace" by Jones Brothers, "House Of God" by an Unknown Female Trio, "Nobody's Looking Back" by Wally Fowler, "Rainbow Of Love" by Evans Family Singers, "Until I Pray For You" by Rudi Richardson, "Where Shall I Be" by Brewsteraires, "My Heart Is A Chapel" by Mary Johnson, "My God Is Real" by Prisonaires, "All My Sins Been Taken Away" by Sonny Burgess, "Round Up In Glory" by Sun Spot Quartet" – and the tracks "Just A Little Talk With Jesus" by the Million Dollar Quartet, and even a "Sermon" by Jerry Lee Lewis.

✨✧ Ben Lamar GayDowntown Castles Can Never Block The Sun ... CD
International Anthem, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most unusual "best of" collections you'll ever own – given that it features material pulled together from seven different albums by Ben LaMar Gay – none of which were ever released! The package is more of a debut than anything else – and a hell of a musical statement, too – as Ben's music is almost completely without referent – and that's saying a lot, given the already genre-busting nature of other releases on the International Anthem label! We might list the music under jazz – as it does feature some jazz instrumentation – but there's also lots of electronic elements too, often used in these shape-shifting ways that criss cross with other elements – like bass clarinet, flute, viola, and voice – all kind of crashing together in waves of sonic energy that embrace multiple genres at once, but never have the hokey result of other music that might try to do such a thing. Instead, imagine Ben's voice as being this bold cut-up experiment (in the original William S Burroughs mode) – but one that might have been taken across the scope of an entire record collection, sweeping up snatches of jazz, electronica, orchestral music, folk, hip hop, and lots more – all with results that are as revolutionary as Burroughs' writing. Titles include "Muhal", "Music For 18 Hairdressers – Braids & Friends", "7th Stanza", "Gator Teeth", "Swim Swim", "Kunni", "Oh No Not Again", "Jubilee", and "A Seasoning Called Primavera". CD

The set's got a groove that's a lot more raw than the Eagles or Poco – maybe more tied to the world of the Flying Burrito Brothers and Gram Parsons, although you can definitely hear the Frey touches in the music at times! There's a nicely laidback, unadorned quality to the recording – which features fantastic studio contributions from James Burton, Ry Cooder, Larry Knectel, Buddy Emmons, and Doug Kershaw – just the right mix of Cali and country talents to bring out the best corners of the music. Most songs were written by Southern – although Frey hand a hand in a few – and the whole thing is especially great if you're a fan of JD's mighty talents – on titles that include "Star Spangled Bus", "Mister Mister", "Briong Back Funky Women", "Lucky Love", "Run Boy Run", "Jubilee Anne", and "Kite Woman".

Explores Guitar Country is maybe one of the rootsier efforts during the early RCA years of Jerry Reed – a set that definitely lives up to the "guitar country" promised in the title, as his strong command of the instrument is right up front in the mix – often on these midtempo numbers that sound perfect with his style! Jerry sings a bit, but his guitar is almost the strongest voice on the record – nicely unadorned, especially for RCA at the time – on titles that include "Bluegrass With Guts", "Are You From Dixie", "Wayfarin Stranger", "Barbara Allen", "In The Pines", "Swarmin", and "A Worried Man". Cookin has Jerry Reed reaching for some of the groovier material that would bring him great fame – but the songs are also balanced with some slightly folksy currents, maybe a bit like the late 60s work of Waylon Jennings – with some surprising commentary from time to time, and a richness of feeling that wasn't always allowed Jerry in some of his more famous, joke-heavy moments. Titles include "Turn It Around In Your Mind", "How Many Tomorrows", "Sometimes Feelin", "Plastic Saddle", "Alabama Jubilee", and "My Next Impersonation". Georgia Sunshine is a record that has Jerry Reed really hitting that formula that would make for some big albums in the 70s – a mix of witty, upbeat numbers and some occasional deeper moments – many of which are featured here in songs penned by Jerry himself! The set features the big hit "Amos Moses" – plus "Good Friends & Neighbors", "Talk About The Good Times", "Preacher & The Bear", "Georgia Sunshine", "That's All Part Of Losing", and "Dream Sweet Dreams About Me". Me & Jerry is a great duet album with Chet Atkins – a set that showcases the super-strong guitar talents of both musicians – very different in sound and style, but perfectly matched on a strong set of instrumentals! The tunes are mostly familiar, but nicely fresh in this setting – with lots of creativity from both musicians – and titles include "Tennessee Stud", "Wreck Of The John B", "Nut Sundae", "Stump Water", "Cannonball Rag", and "The January February March".
