Manny Albam & His Jazz GreatsJazz New York ... CD
Coral/Lonehill (Spain), 1958. Used ... $7.99
Manny's really grooving wonderfully on this session – using the same formation from his Jazz Greats Vol 1 session for Decca, an assortment of the best New York soloists Albam could find, all brought together in one great band for the session! The group is a largeish one, but they've got an incredibly tight energy – and Album's well remembering his own days as a player in a larger group with the arrangements, and gives the soloists plenty of room to express themselves. Players include Donald Byrd, Art Farmer, Bob Brookmeyer, Frank Socolow, Eddie Costa, Dick Katz, Nick Travis, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Woods – all painting a beautiful sound portrait of New York arranged by Manny! Titles include "Thruway", "They All Laughed", "Fresh Flute", "Dot's Right", "The Nether Regions", and "Hebe The Cups Please". CD also features 2 bonus tracks from the Something New Something Blue session for Columbia from the same period – "Night Crawlers" and "Tin Roof Blues". CD

Donald Byrd & Gigi GryceComplete Jazz Lab Studio Sessions Vol 1 ... CD
Columbia/Lonehill (Spain), 1957. Used ... $12.99
Incredible work from the team of Donald Byrd and Gigi Gryce – crisp modern jazz, filled with soul, and never failing to swing! During the time of these recordings, Gryce was one hell of an arranger – with a tight ensemble approach that worked magic in a small combo setting. He was also a tremendous alto player – with a tone that was unlike any other musician at the time, magically sharp, with a sound that always seemed to inspire a great deal of energy from his bandmates. He gets plenty of that here from trumpeter Donald Byrd – sounding better on these sides than on most of his other 50s recordings – thanks also to some great accompanists, who include Tommy Flanagan, Wendell Marshall, and Art Taylor. Some tunes feature additional horn work from players that include Benny Powell, Julius Watkins, and Sahib Shihab. Volume 1 in this Lonehill's Complete Jazz Lab Studio Sessions mixes 13 tracks originally released on the LPs Jazz Lab, Modern Jazz Perspective, plus mutual tracks with the rare compilation Jazz Omnibus. Titles include "Nica's Tempo", "Smoke Signal", "Over The Rainbow", "Sans Souci", "Speculation", "Stablemates", "Steppin Out", "Social Call", "Satellite", "An Evening In Casablanca" and more! CD

✨✧ Budd JohnsonStanley Dance Sessions – Blues A La Mode (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Felsted/Lonehill (Spain), 1958/1967. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A nicely packaged version of Budd Johnson's album Blues Ala Mode – a fantastically hard-blowing album from the tenorist – and one of the few jazz sides recorded for the short-lived Felsted label in the 50s! Budd blows hard Texas tenor in a really gutbuckety way – evoking a variety of jazz traditions within a single solo, but always heading back to the swinging territory that was most comfortable space. The lineup on the set is great too – and features Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Ray Bryant or Bert Keys on piano, Jo Jones on drums, and a bit of added baritone from the great Al Sears! Tracks are all quite long, with lots of room for solos, and Budd plays in perfect form – and in a much more stable way than on his later Argo recordings! Titles include "Used Blues", "Blues By Five", "Foggy Nights", and "Destination Blues". The CD expands the original album with 4 bonus tracks that feature Budd in quartet led by Earl Hines, recorded in 1967 – blowing tenor and soprano on tunes that include "Changin The Blues", "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone", "Summertime", and "Louisiana".

Dicky WellsStanley Dance Sessions – Bones For The King/Trombone Four In Hand ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1958/1959. Used ... $9.99
2 of the great late 50s swing sessions on the short-lived Felsted label – both albums that feature trombonist Dicky Wells on some long and open-ended tunes! Dicky's playing here with fellow trombonists Benny Morton, Vic Dickenson, and George Matthews – as well as Buddy Tate on tenor, Buck Clayton on trumpet, and Skip Hall on organ on a few tracks. The lineup changes from side to side, but the feel is certainly the same – and very strong. Titles include "Hello Smack", "Come & Get It", "Stan's Dance", "You Took My Heart", "Bones For The King", "Girl Hunt", "Wine O Junction", and "Sweet Daddy Spo-de-o". 12 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Tommy FlanaganComplete Original Trio Recordings ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Although Tommy Flanagan recorded often in trio format in the later years of his life, he didn't always do so at the start – which is how this 2CD set is able to contain all Flanagan's trio recordings of the pre-1978 years! First up is the best known material of this nature – the album Overseas, originally recorded by the Metronome label in Stockholm, but is issued here in the US by Prestige – hence the Overseas title! Tommy Flanagan is in perfect form in this stellar session of trio recordings, playing with Elvin Jones on drums and Wilbur Little on bass, in a mode that's both lyrical and boppish. Titles include "Skal Brothers", "Verdandi", "Delarna", "Little Rock", "Eclypso", and "Beat's Up". Remaining tracks on the 2CD set are from a very wide variety of sources – the album Lonely Town, The Tommy Flanagan Trio album on Moodsville, and cuts from The Cats and Dial JJ albums that only feature a trio, plus a few other assorted dates from the early 60s. These other cuts combine to make the CD a 32-track extravaganza of Flanagan Trio material from the years 1957 through 1964 – with titles that include "So Sorry Pleae", "Love For Sale", "Tonight", "America", "It's Love", "Make Our Garden Grow", "Lucky To Be Me", and "Come Sunday".
