Bill EvansLive In Paris 1965 ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1965. Used ... $14.99
Bill Evans at the height of his mid 60s powers – recorded in Paris for the ORTF, with a wonderful trio that features Chuck Israels on bass and Larry Bunker on drums! Evans has a strength on the keys that's really wonderful – possibly a bit more force than on some of his later live European sides, but always with an ear for some of the most sensitive tones on the piano – bright and blue colors that make each new tune a tiny little painting in sound. Given the setting, the recording quality is quite well – a bit dimmed with age, but better than the usual non-label Evans live set. A few tracks feature an announcer introducing the tunes – and titles include "Nardis", "Elsa", "Time Remembered", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "Some Other Time", "How Deep Is The Ocean", and "Israel". CD also features 3 bonus tracks from a Birdland date in 1962 with Paul Motian on drums instead of Bunker – tracks that include "Gloria's Step", "Nardis", and "Haunted Heart". CD

Modern Jazz Quartet with Jimmy GiuffreComplete Recordings (Historic Jazz Concert At Music Inn/Modern Jazz Quartet At Music Inn/Third Stream Music) ... CD
Atlantic/Lonehill (Spain), 1956/1957. Used ... $9.99
The meeting of two key modern jazz talents in the late 50s third stream of jazz – heard on material pulled from three different Atlantic albums recorded at the Music Inn during 1956! The core of the set features the clarinet of Jimmy Giuffre blowing alongside the Modern Jazz Quartet – in a spacious style that's very much in the spirit of Jimmy's own loosely-crafted groups of the time, and which makes surprisingly gentle use of piano, drums, and vibes next to his own gentle phrasing on clarinet. 2 of the 5 tracks with the MJQ add in Giuffre trio members Jim Hall and Ralph Pena – and titles for all include "A Fugue For Music Inn", "Serenade", "Fun",j "Da Capo", and "Fine". Added to these are 4 more titles that have Giuffre in the shifting company of other all-star players on tunes that take on a more traditional nature overall – longer jamming tracks that feature Rex Stewart, Pee Wee Russell, Teddy Charles, and Herbie Mann on titles that include "Blues In E Flat", "In A Mellotone", "The Quiet Time", and "Body & Soul". The last 3 tracks on the set return us to the Modern Jazz Quartet – working here on their own – on tracks that include "2 Degrees East 3 Degrees West", "Variation No 1 On God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", and "Oh Bess Where's My Bess".

Clark TerrySwahili (Clark Terry/Jimmy Hamilton & The New York Jazz Quintet) ... CD
EmArcy/Lonehill (Spain), 1954/1955. Used ... $8.99
2 rare sides of work by trumpeter Clark Terry – both with a fair bit more edge than many of his later recordings! The first half of the CD is from the amazing 1955 album Clark Terry for Emarcy – a real stunner, and one of Terry's finest moments ever! The record has a rawness and groove that you'd hardly expect from his later albums – no surprise, though, considering that it was cut during that really hip time at Emarcy, when the label was working in a mode that was darker and more challenging than many of the smaller labels at the time. Credit is also due to arranger Quincy Jones – who pulls together a group that includes Horace Silver, Jimmy Cleveland, Cecil Payne, and Art Blakey, all into a fiercely grooving sound that recalls some of his most adventurous work of the 50s. The album kicks off with the stunning "Swahili", a tune that will instantly make you happy you bought the record – and other tracks include "Coop", "Chuckles", "Tuma", "Kitten", and "The Countess". These tracks are followed by 8 more from an obscure 1954 session done under the leadership of clarinetist Jimmy Hamilton – and featuring Terry on trumpet, Barry Galbraith and Sidney Gross on guitars, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – all in a really unusual group formation that's totally great! One guitar's used for solos and the other for rhythm – and the lack of piano gives the record a decidedly different swing than you might expect from a Jimmy Hamilton session – one that's less traditional, and more airy and open – really inventive in the rhythmic construction of the tunes, in a mode that's followed up very nicely by the soloists in their own energy. Titles include "Chuckles", "Bohemia After Dark", "Blues In My Room", "Blues For Clarinet", and "What Am I Here For". CD

✨✧ Lorez AlexandriaEarly in the Morning/Deep Roots (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1960/1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early In The Morning, a gem – right up there with her best work ever! An excellent early album by one of the greatest jazz vocalists of all time! The session's a very hip affair – recorded with the Ramsey Lewis Trio backing her up on one side, and a group led by Frank Foster on another – both playing in a tight soul jazz mode that works perfectly for Lorez's great voice, and which takes her way past the straighter style of the King recordings. Includes a version of Louis Jordan's "Early In The Morning", plus "So Long", "Don't Explain", "Baby Don't You Cry", and "Rocks In My Bed". The groove's very deep, like hearing Lorez in a smoky club on the south side of Chicago! Deep Roots is a perfect summation of her rich talents as a singer! Backing is by a small Chicago trio that includes John Young on piano, Vernel Fournier on drums, and George Eskridge on bass – but the arrangements of the tracks, and Lorez's unique interpretations drive the tunes into territory that's surprisingly advanced for the 1962 date of the session. You'll recognize most of the tunes – but as the old adage goes, it's not the song, but the singer – and you'll hear Lorez crafting a rich tapestry of sound and emotion from titles like "No Moon At All", "I Was A Fool", "Detour Ahead", "Travlin Light", and "I Want To Talk About You".

✨✧ Dave BaileyComplete 1 & 2 Feet In The Gutter Sessions (Getting Into Something/One Foot In The Gutter/Two Feet In The Gutter) ... CD
Columbia/Lonehill (Spain), 1960/1961. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the most soulful jazz ever recorded for Columbia Records – 3 albums worth of material from the combo of drummer Dave Bailey! Bailey's probably best known for his work in the Gerry Mulligan group, but for a brief time at the start of the 60s he stepped out as a leader – working with a focus and intensity that easily matched the best hard boppers on Blue Note or Prestige! These 3 records for Columbia are all amazing sets that we'd rank with some of our favorite jazz from the time – razor-sharp records that have a really earthy finish, and which bring out some of the best hardbop work on record from horn soloists Curtis Fuller, Clark Terry, Junior Cook, Charlie Rouse, and Bill Hardman – all of whom really catch fire under Bailey's guidance! But even above the great horn work on the albums, we really have to note the piano – as Horace Parlan plays on 2 of the albums, easily matching his Blue Note classics, and Billy Gardner follows up on the last set – working with a low low bottom that we love from his sides with Lou Donaldson. Bassists are Peck Morrison and Ben Tucker – and titles include "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", "Blues For JP", "One Foot In The Gutter", "Sandu", "Two Feet In The Gutter", "Lady Iris B", "Coffee Walk", and "Brownie Speaks". And if 3 albums' worth of material isn't enough, the CD also features 3 more tunes from Bailey's rare Jazztime session with Grant Green and Frank Hayes – "Reaching Out", "Our Miss Brooks", and "One For Elena". 16 tracks in all – most of them quite long!

✨✧ Oscar PetersonOscar Peterson Trio At The London House – The Complete Master Takes ... CD
Verve/Lonehill (Spain), 1961. Used 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The complete recordings from the 1961 London House sessions by the Oscar Peterson Trio – recorded in Chicago by a lineup that includes Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums! Material on this 3CD package originally appeared on a handful of Verve albums in the 60s – including Put On A Happy Face, Sound Of The Trio, Something Warm, and Live In Chicago – and this collection features only the master takes from those recordings, not all the alternates and other bits that kind of cluttered up an earlier Verve 5CD release of the London House recordings. Peterson is at the height of his powers throughout – often really taking off on longer tunes that test the full range of his talents – working the keyboard with magnificent power, but always swinging, always grooving, and never showing off with unnecessary flutters and flourishes. Thigpen's drumming is an especial treat to our ears – as his mix of rhythm and melodic invention is almost a little sideshow on the record itself, were it not tied so strongly to the overall groove of the group. 3CD set features a total of 25 titles that include "Tricotism", "Billy Boy", "Whisper Not", "Chicago", "Thag's Dance", "Ill Wind", "Woody N You", "Yesterdays", "Diablo", "Soon", "I Love You", "Swamp Fire", and "I Remember Clifford".
