Sammy Price with Lucky ThompsonSammy Price Avec Lucky Thompson ... LP
Polydor (France), 1957. Very Good ... $29.99
A very unique session that features the often-modern tenor sax of Lucky Thompson in the company of bluesman Sammy Price, who plays piano and sings on a number of the tracks on the record. Amazingly, Thompson's raspy tenor tone is a perfect fit with the style of the recording – laying down lean blusey licks that really work nicely with Price's barrelhouse piano style, and which also give it a bit more of a jazz-oriented style than usual. The rest of the group features Pierre Michelot on bass, Jean-Pierre Sasson on guitar, and Gerard Pochonet on drums. Titles include "Lucky T", "Minor Blues", "Paris Blues", "Embassy Boogie", and "Up Above My Head". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy mono pressing! Cover has some ring and edge wear, bent corners, some splitting in the spnie and bottom seam, and small tears in the opening.)

Lucky ThompsonLucky Moments ... CD
Ocium (Spain), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $9.99
A great selection of "moments" from the early years of Lucky Thompson's career – tracks that capture the tenor giant at his best, working in a swing-based mode early on, but opening up to many new ideas as the CD progresses. Tracks are listed chronologically – and start with a 1945 date with Basie for Colubmia, moving into a Duke 78 with Freddie Green & The Kansas City 7, then into a series of tracks recorded under Lucky's own leadership – for the Excelsior label (1945), the Down Beat label (1946), Victor (1947), Triumph (1950), and Decca (1953/54). The set really moves past the over-collected Thompson moments, and brings to light a great amount of 78rpm material – all packaged very nicely, and with a good set of notes! 25 tracks in all, with titles that include "Avenue C", "Stay In There", "Boppin The Blues", "Boulevard Bounce", "Commercial Eyes", "Bunny", "Little Boy Blow", "The Scene Is Clean", "Schuffle That Ruff", and "Slam's Mishap".

✨✧ Jimmy McGriff, George Freeman, Lucky ThompsonFriday The 13th – Cook County Jail ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Gritty gritty gritty! This live set of soul jazz tracks was recorded in Chicago's Cook County Jail on Friday the 13th, 1972 – and we can hardly think of a darker place to record a soul jazz album! Side one features the aptly-named "Freedom Suite", an extended groover played by Jimmy McGriff, and a 2-guitar group that includes George Freeman and Odonel Levy – and side two has Lucky Thompson playing in a soulful group with Cedar Walton on electric piano, on the tracks "Green Dolphin Street" and "Everything Happens To Me". A pretty incredible event to be recorded – trust us, we drive by the jail a fair bit on the way to work! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lucky ThompsonDancing Sunbeam ... LP
ABC/Impulse, Mid 50s/1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Really standout material from Lucky – an excellent set collecting small group sessions recorded for Paramount in the mid 50s, featuring Oscar Pettiford on bass! The format's a bit like the small combo mode that Americans from larger touring ensembles were recording in Europe – a bit more laidback, and with more solo focus for players who were sometimes eclipsed in larger groups. There are 2 sides with Lucky playing in a quintet format, the first with Hank Jones, Pettiford, and Osie Johnson in the rhythm section – plus Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, and the second subbing Don Abney for Hank Jones. The real treat here though are the 2 sides of trio material, which feature Lucky, Oscar, and the guitar of Skeeter Best – setting up a spare, drum-less sound that really lets Lucky open up like we've never heard before. Titles include "Tricotism", "Bo Bi My Boy", "Op Meets It", "Tom Kattin", "Translation", "NR #2", "Once There Was", "Good Luck", "Mister Man", and "Little Tenderfoot". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label stereo promo. Cover has some ring and edge wear and a cut corner.)

Charlie Parker/Everest, Late 40s. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
Early bop sides, not led by Miles as you might imagine from this package, but featuring him.

✨✧ Quincy JonesQuintessential Charts (This Is How I Feel About Jazz/Quintessence) ... LP
ABC, 1956/1961. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
A split 70s LP – with two earlier classics! First up is How I Feel About Jazz – an important early album from Quincy Jones! Q's working here in some of his hippest settings of the 50s – scoring longish versions of jazz tunes for groups that include players like Lucky Thompson on tenor, Herbie Mann on flute, Art Farmer on trumpet, Phil Woods and Gene Quill on alto sax, Hank Jones on piano, and even Charles Mingus on bass! As with most Jones albums of the time, Quincy has a way of making a bigger group sound nice and lean – hitting some especially nice edges along with the rhythms, and really showing the way towards a new soulful sound for a bigger band. Titles include a sublime 10 minute version of "Walkin" that kicks off the album with a great soulful groove – plus original tunes "Evening In Paris", "Stockholm Sweetnin", and "Boo's Blues", as well as a version of Cannonball Adderley's "Sermonette". Next is Quintessence – a very soulful set of big band material from Quincy Jones – recorded during that tight early 60s period when his arrangements just couldn't fail! The album's his only session for Impulse, and it's got a slightly deeper style than his work from the time for Mercury – a bit more sophisticated, with nice modern touches that take the tunes in surprising directions. Part of the greatness of the set lies in the players – as the album features work by Curtis Fuller, Thad Jones, Stu Martin, Freddie Hubbard, Patty Brown, Phil Woods, and Jerome Richardson – and titles include "Robot Portrait", "Hard Sock Dance", "The Twitch", and "For Lena & Lennie". LP, Vinyl record album

Jack SelsJack Sels – Minor Works ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Tenorist Jack Sels may not be one of the best-known names on the European jazz scene of the postwar years – but that's likely because he passed away earlier than most, but not before leaving a strong legacy of jazz on the Belgian scene! Sels is a hell of a player – modern in conception, but possessed with a wonderfully soulful tone – one that goes deeper than some of the other European modernists of the period, and which has as much of a sense of Jack's person in the music as it does his overall vision for the sound. This package might be the first that most of us on this side of the Atlantic have experienced his work – and it's a wonderfully-done set that lives up to the quality of the other Belgian funk and jazz sets on this excellent label – with great song choices and very detailed notes. Sels plays with some of his own groups, but also with Lucky Thompson on tenor, Philip Catherine on guitar and Lou Bennett on organ, and also as part of the Saxorama group. Disc one features studio material, disc two features live sides – and titles include "Zonky", "Gemini", "Dong", "Tchack Tchak", "La Campimania", "African Dance", "Blue Triptichon", "Rain On The Grand Place", "Spanish Lady", "Ginger", "Blue Monk", "Swingin The Blues", and "Night In Tunisia".

Prestige, 1953/1954. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent 2 LP compilation, put together and remastered in the late 70s, of sides cut by Miles for the Prestige label. There's some remarkable performances from some of his greatest LPs from that early period, like Bags' Groove, when Miles was still playing smoldering bop and his sidemen include Max Roach, Lucky Thompson, Sonny Rollins, Monk and Kenny Clarke. 13 tracks in all: "Tune Up", "Solar", "Walkin", "Blue N Boogie", "Bag's Groove", "When Lights Are Low", "Four", "Old Devil Moon", "You Don't Know What Love Is", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "I'll Remember April", "But Not For Me" and "The Man I Love".
