Modern Jazz Quartet & The All-Star Jazz BandJazz Dialogue ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Larger group meditations by the Modern Jazz Quartet – working here in an expanded lineup that includes work from Phil Woods, Charlie Mariano, Seldon Powell, Richie Kamuca, Clark Terry, and Jimmy Cleveland! The album takes a core MJQ groove, and only seems to lay out out over the larger arrangements as backing – almost as if the set were recorded in two parts, and stitched together – but in a way that works with a brilliant sense of counterpart, one that brings a lot more soul and color to the group's work than usual. Titles include versions of the John Lewis numbers "One Never Knows", "Animal Dance", "The Golden Striker", "Django", and "Home" – plus Milt Jackson's "Ralph's New Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue & green label pressing.)

Bud PowellAlternate Takes ... LP
Blue Note, 1985. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A collection of different odds and ends from a pretty broad swath of Powell's career, one of the sort of reissues Michael Cuscuna was producing in the mid 80s where he'd dig up some nice lost gems. The set starts with some radio transcriptions from 1949 featuring a great line up of young bop stars with Fats Navarro, Sonny Rollins, Tommy Potter and Roy Haynes running through 2 takes of "Bouncing With Bud", plus "Wail" and "Dance Of The Infidels". For most of the rest of the album the format's Bud's favored trio setting in 1953, 1957, 1958 and 1963, recorded with George Duvivier, Paul Chambers, Sam Jones or Pierre Michelot on bass, and Art Taylor, Philly Joe Jones or Kenny Clarke on drums, and featuring Dexter Gordon sitting in on one number, "Our Love Is Here To Stay". 11 tracks in all, also includes "Collard Greens And Black Eyed Peas", "Blue Pearl", "John's Abbey" and "Like Someone In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bud PowellBebop ... CD
Pablo/Fantasy, 1948/1959/1960/1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
A well-titled collection of work from Bud Powell – one that brings together a host of different bop-tinged sides, all from different points in his career! The first half of the set features a vintage 1948 broadcast from the Royal Roost – featuring Powell's piano in a larger group that includes Benny Harris on trumpet, JJ Johnson on trombone, Lee Konitz on alto, Budd Johnson on tenor, Cecil Payne on baritone, and Buddy DeFranco on clarinet – quite a lineup of heavyweight horn players, making for a flavor that's different than some of Bud's usual trio dates. Titles include "Perdido", "52nd Street Theme", "Ornithology", "I'll Be Seeing You", and "Jumping With Symphony Sid". Next up are a handful of 1959/1960 Parisian recordings with Pierre Michelot on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums – showing a more modern Powell than before, on titles that include "Blues In The Closet", "Confirmation", and "Now's The Time". Last is a batch of 4 live tracks recorded in Edenville, France – in 1964, shortly before Powell's death. Johnny Griffin joins the trio on a version of "Hot House" – and other titles include "Salt Peanuts", "Lady Bird", and "I Remember Clifford". CD

Eliane EliasCross Currents ... CD
Denon (Japan), 1987. Used ... $11.99
Lovely work from Eliane Elias – and exactly the set you should turn to if you ever doubted her chops on the piano! Elias starts with a quick rendition of Bud Powell's "Hallucinations", played with a deftness that Toshiko Akiyoshi would appreciate – and the set then runs into a batch of tunes that includes some charming originals from Eliane – those fully-formed numbers that always made her a well-rounded talent right from the start! The blend of sensitivity and swing on the record is really impressive – and made even better by a set of players that includes Eddie Gomez on bass, Barry Finnerty on guitar, and Jack DeJohnette and Peter Erskine on drums. Titles include "One Side Of You", "Impulsive", "Cross Current", "Campari & Soda", and "Peggy's Blue Skylight". CD

Bernard Purdie (Pretty Purdie)Soul Drums (50th anniversary 2LP version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Date/Nature Sounds, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $33.99 34.98
Massive work from one of the funkiest drummers of all time – the legendary Bernard Pretty Purdie, stepping out here in a batch of instrumentals that may well be his greatest album ever! Bernard's drums are right up front in the mix – leading off all tunes with a full, funky, echoey sort of approach that's unlike anything else we can think of – and certainly different from any other late 60s albums of this type! The production is totally great – and has a way of pulling out some of the weirdest aspects of the music – which itself features guitar from Billy Butler and Eric Gale, bass from Bob Bushnell, tenor and flute from Seldon Powell, and organ and piano from Richard Tee – who also handled all the arrangements on the set! The centerpiece is the hit single "Funky Donkey", but just about every track's a groover in its own way – and titles include "Soul Drums", "Bill's Groove", "Jimmy's Back", "Testifyin", "Modern Jive", "Blow Your Lid", "Bee N Tee", and "Soul Bossa Nova". This new edition includes 8 bonus tracks, with a couple rare 45 tracks and more that have never been released – all soulful & funky – well paired with the Soul Drums album! Bonus tracks are in stereo, and include "Alexander's Rag Time Band", "Genuine John", "Soul Clappin", "If You Never Cried", "Stop" and "Time Is Tight". Also comes with a nice booklet with new liner notes, and choice quotes from Purdie's peers and those he influenced, from Galt MacDermot to Large Professor. LP, Vinyl record album

A beautifully expansive anthology that covers each decade of jazz music from the 20s to early 00s – tracing the evolution of the music throughout and pinpointed historically resonant, artistically essential moments all the way – a real treasure from Smithsonian Folkways!

Charlie ParkerSummit Meeting At Birdland ... CD
Columbia/Jazzotheque (France), 1951/1953. Used ... $4.99
A very well-done collection of Charlie Parker performances from the legendary Birdland nightclub – originally presented on radio, but cleaned up here with a great sense of sound! The mighty Symphony Sid can be heard introducing a few tracks, but the main focus is on the music – with the kind of razor-sharp solos that always made Parker a knockout, especially during these key early 50s years – and accompaniment from musicians who include Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Bud Powell or John Lewis on piano, Kenny Clarke or Roy Haynes on drums, and even the surprising inclusion of organist Milt Buckner at one point! The album may well be worth it, just to hear Bird playing with a Hammond – but the whole thing's great, and titles include "Cool Blues", "Star Eyes", "Blue N Boogie", "Anthropology", "Night In Tunisia", and "Groovin High".

✨✧ Juan Calle And His Latin LantzmenMazel Tov Mis Amigos ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice little album – despite what might be a gimmicky concept! The set offers up Latin versions of Jewish tunes – but even that's not much of a gimmick, when you consider how important the Jewish audiences were to the growth of Latin music in the New York in the 50s and 60s. From DJs like Symphony Sid, to vacationers at the Catskills, to dancers in classes at Arthur Murray on Long Island or the Palladium in Manhattan, the Jewish audiences were some of the strongest for the New York Latin acts – and it's no surprise that you get albums like this cropping up to address the situation! Calle's group is a fine Latin jazz ensemble, and they've got a clarinet in the mix on a few tracks, snaking away in an almost klezmer-like fashion over the piano/percussion grooves of the album. Players include a rock-solid batch of Latin and jazz musicians – including Charlie Palmieri on piano, Ray Barretto on congas, Willie Rodriguez on timbales, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Doc Cheatham on trumpet – plus John Cali on lute – the real name of Juan Calle, who also did all the arrangements. Ed Powell sings a bit of vocals, but most of the action here is instrumental – and very much in the best Riverside Latin mode of the time, but with a Jewish twist! Titles include "Papirossen", "Beltz Mein Shetele Betlz", "Die Greene Koseene", "Frilach A Nacht", and "Yossel Yossel". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label Bill Grauer pressing with microphone logo and deep groove.)
