Mose AllisonCreek Bank ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
One of Mose's best early albums – even though he hardly gets a chance to sing on it! The album features some great work by Allison's trio of the time – Addison Farmer on bass and Ronnie Free on drums – simple piano-driven groovers, performed with a slight gutbuckety approach, and lots of sweet down home soul. Mose sings a bit on the classic "Seventh Son", a groover that's kept him going for years, and on the great tune "If You Live", which also has a similar feel. Other tracks include "Mule", "If I Didn't Care", "Moon & Cypress", and "Creek Bank". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a sticker spot.)

Mose AllisonMose Alive ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Sealed ... $19.99
One of Mose's mid 60s albums for Atlantic – recorded live, with a bit more of a hip flair than some of his earlier work for Prestige and Columbia, but still with those great vocals that went onto influence a generation of beatnik jazz singers. Mose has more than a bit of New Orleans in his tone – but he's also got some northern distance from his material, bringing a nice bit of wit into the recordings. There's a total of 11 tracks including "Parchman Farm", "Smashed", "Seventh Son", "Fool's Paradise", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "The Chaser". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)

Mose AllisonMose In Your Ear ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ ... $2.99
It's the early 70s, and Mose is still going strong – grooving with a unique blend of New Orleans soul and Northern jazz influences, his own particular brand of music, timeless from the day it was born! The setting here is a live one, and Mose is playing with a trio that includes Clyde Flowers on bass and Eddie Charlton on drums. The album features a number of strong originals – including "Look What You Made Me Do", "Powerhouse", "I Don't Worry About A Thing", and "Don't Forget To Smile" – plus versions of "The Seventh Son" and "Fool's Paradise".

Mose AllisonWestern Man ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Near Mint- ... $5.99
An amazing record by Mose Allison – with some good funky tracks! The real key here is the fact that Mose plays electric piano and is working in a hip trio with Billy Cobham playing some funky and soulful drums! We don't know what kind of piano Mose is using, but on the tracks where he's playing the electric, it's got a jagged and raw kind of sound, almost recalling the one used on the Atlantic albums by Eugene McDaniels. Includes the great funky track "If You Only Knew", which has a real McDaniels kind of feel – plus the cuts "Western Man", "Mountains", "Ask Me Nice", "Night Club", and "Meadows". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red and green Rockefeller label pressing. Cover looks great, save for a small cutout notch.)

✨✧ Mose AllisonI Don't Worry About A Thing ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Mose Allison's first albums for Atlantic – a great set of soulful jazz vocals, done in a rootsy style that has some slight New Orleans touches – and a nice sort of beat undercurrent! The sound of the set follows nicely from Mose's earlier work for Prestige and Columbia – with Mose on piano, plus Addison Farmer on bass and Osie Johnson on drums. The set features 10 tracks in all – including "I Don't Worry About A Thing", "It Didn't Turn Out That Way", "Your Mind Is On Vacation", "Stand By", "Meet Me At No Special Place" and "The Song Is Ended".

✨✧ Mose AllisonMose Allison Plays For Lovers ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A strange title, but the record's a pretty nice collection of Mose Allison's early work for Prestige – a collection that focuses only on his instrumental work as a pianist, and doesn't include any of his better-known vocals! Mose is a pretty great talent on the keys, and these tracks have him stretching out in a way that doesn't always occur on his vocal-oriented sessions – always in trio formation with mostly Addison Farmer on bass, and a variety of drummers that include Ronnie Free, Frank Isola, and Nick Stabulas. Titles include "It's Crazy", "You Belong To Me", "Somebody Else Is Taking My Place", "My Kinda Love", "Strange", "Kissin Bug", and "If I Didn't Care". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles BrownBlues 'N' Brown ... LP
Jewel, Early 70s. Good+ ... $9.99
By this point in his career, Charles has come a long way from his "Drifting Blues" hit of earlier years – but he's still one heck of a singer, and in a modern soul/blues format like this, it's interesting to hear him sound like singers like Mose Allison, on whom he had an undeniable effect. The group's a small combo with some wah wah and fuzzy guitar, and Charles is probably the one playing piano. Titles include "Jilted", "Black Night", "Trouble Blues", "For You", and "Moonlight & Shadows". LP, Vinyl record album

Al Cohn QuintetAl Cohn Quintet Featuring Bob Brookmeyer ... LP
Coral, 1956. Very Good+ ... $34.99
A rare and unusual chapter in the career of Al Cohn – and an incredible set cut in the mid 50s with Bob Brookmeyer on trombone! The style's a bit like that used by Al and Zoot Sims together – tightly arranged shorter tracks, with a focus on well-crafted horn work, but enough space to allow each of the leaders break out and express their personality on the record. The rest of the group features Mose Allison on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the arrangements are all pretty darn fresh, handled by Al and Bob themselves. Titles include "So Far So Good", "Winter", "Back To Back", "Shine", "Good Spirits", and "Lazy Man Stomp". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy original pressing. Vinyl is nice and clean, with just a few light marks. Cover has a small bit of tape and some light wear, but is great too.)

Georgie FameShorty ... LP
Epic, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An excellent little album from British vocalist Georgie Fame – one that has him moving way past the simple beat group sound of his roots, into a sophisticated style that mixes jazz vocalizing, hard grooving, and lots of rock/R&B influences! Georgie's still got his Mose Allison-inspired vocal style, but the band behind him is a lot more open-ended, and grooves along freely in these great organ riffing rhythms – open-ended and very swinging on some numbers, but in a way that's different from Fame's rougher-edged roots. Titles include "Oliver's Gone", "Somebody Stole My Thunder", "Fully Booked", "Inside Story", and "Seventh Son". LP, Vinyl record album

Ben SidranI Lead A Life ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
Wonderful early work from Ben Sidran! The album's got a hip jazzy vocal style – similar to some of the best late 60s work by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg, but also with New Orleans touches – as in the work of Mose Allison or Dr John! Sidran brings in a smoother, groovier feel than those artists, though – and really helps out his vocals with some great work on electric piano too! The instrumentation's got a tripped-out California feel – often quite open-ended, and really rumbling around for different influences from jazz, funk, and soul – almost like some of Shuggie Otis' best work of the time, or like some of Ben's contemporaries on the Blue Thumb label. Titles include the great instrumental "Lust" – plus "Eliyahu", "When A Woman Says She's Ready", "Talking About Money", "I Lead A Life", "Slippery Hip", and "Chances Are". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Phil WoodsJazz Alive – A Night At The Half Note ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note (UK), 1959. Used ... $7.99
Alive, and plenty lively – one of our favorite albums ever to feature the team of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims – and one that has them really stretching out a lot more than usual! The album's got a format that's quite different than the tightly-reigned sound of Sims and Cohn on other dates – as all the four tracks here run for longer than nine minutes – really allowing lots of room for solo space – and some great interplay between the reedmen too! Phil Woods joins the twin tenors on alto for two tracks – and the rest of the group features Mose Allison on piano, Nabil Totah on bass, and Paul Motian on drums. Titles include "Lover Come Back To Me", "It Had To Be You", and "Wee Dot". CD

✨✧ VariousMo' Mod Jazz ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We really love all the different volumes in the Mod Jazz series from Kent Records – they've been instrumental to our musical education over the years – so we're always happy to have "Mo", especially with a collection this great! The material comes from a number of different indies from the 60s – and the style here is definitely mod, in that hip mix of R&B, soul, and jazz that was brewing on the London scene back in the day – but which was always best delivered by American artists like this! The music bristles with heavy tenor, Hammond organ, scratchy guitar, and the occasional well-belted vocal – and the whole thing feels like finding a jukebox full of carefully-selected 45s in some lost southside tavern. 22 tracks in all – including "Smokey Joe's La La" by Googie Rene, "Blue Vibes" by Johnny Lytle, "Cholo" by Brown Brothers of Soul, "Soul Jam" by Booker T & The MGs, "Money" by Freddie Roach, "Mission Impossible" by Johnny Gilliam, "Spider Man" by Freddie McCoy, "You Win I Lose" by Little Johnny Taylor, "You Can't Sit Down" by Chris Colombo, "Eyesight To The Blind" by Mose Allison, "My Train" by Merl Saunders, "Brother Ray" by Willis Jackson, and "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones.

✨✧ Al Cohn & Zoot SimsAl & Zoot ... CD
Coral/Universal (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous horn interplay from the team of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims – and a record that may well be one of the best illustrations of their famous magic together in the 50s! The record's got a way of focusing energy, yet letting each player state themselves clearly and cleanly – almost a perfect small group variation of the larger jazz modes of a generation before – carried out here by Cohn and Sims with a great balance of tone and timing, modernism and swing! There's an excellent rhythm group on the date – Mose Allison on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Nick Stabulus on drums – who almost bring in a slightly soulful undercurrent, which works especially well on Sims' solo moments. Tracks include "Two Funky People", "Just You Just Me", "The Wailing Boat", "You're A Lucky Guy", "Brandy & Beer", and "Chasing The Blues". CD

✨✧ Al Cohn & Zoot SimsYou N Me ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the best albums that Al Cohn and Zoot Sims ever cut together – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of their collaborations during the 50s and 60s! The set's got a nice small group feeling, and is a bit more open and relaxed than some of their RCA material – still in the sharp, thoughtful mode that marked both Cohn and Sims' sessions – but also a bit more earthy, too – possibly because they've got Mose Allison in the combo on piano. The album includes the incredible spare sax-only track "Improvisation For Unaccompanied Saxophones", which is an extremely haunting track that sounds unlike anything the pair had ever done together – and other titles have the full quintet playing, tunes that include "The Opener", "The Note" and "You N Me".

✨✧ Remo FourSmile (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Oldays (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from The Remo Four – a 60s Liverpool group who were always in the shadow of The Beatles – but always had a groove that was very much their own! The style on this material is very mod, with plenty of influences from American soul music – maybe a bit like Georgie Fame, but grittier – and graced by the group's wonderful use of organ, which punctuates the tunes in a fantastic way – almost carrying more than the guitars, and usually hitting these Alan Hawkshaw-like riffs that are totally right on the money! The song choices are also great, too – songs by Oscar Brown Jr, Mose Allison, Jack McDuff, and other likely suspects – tunes that include "Jive Samba", "No Money Down", "The Skate", "Heart Beat", "Brother Where Are You", "Seventh Son", "Rock Candy", and "Nothin's Too Good For My Baby". CD features four bonus tracks – "Peter Gunn", "Sing Hallelujah", "Live Like A Lady", and "Mickey's Monkey". CD
(Part of the Oldays Special Treasures series!)
