Roger GuerinLe Formidable Roger Guerin – Paris Meetings ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A well-done overview of some of the best recordings by trumpeter Roger Guerin – one of the most important players on his instrument in Paris during the postwar years – and one of the few to regularly interact with important soloists from overseas! This set brings together Guerin in both dates as a leader, and as a key guest with others – pulled from a section of rare 10" and 7" releases, plus a few full album recordings as well – all bundled together here in a package that really lets Roger's trumpet talents shine! There's a huge range of material here – and the set begins with a few tracks from a session with James Moody on alto in 1961, a few more from a date with guitarist Jimmy Raney in 1954 – then moves into a quartet date with Martial Solal in 1956 and one with pianist Christian Chevailier during that same year. The set has four great tracks with a 1958 date co-led with the great Benny Golson on tenor, with Bobby Timmons on piano in the group – then ends with one track with Michel Hausser on vibes and Martial Solal on piano. The book includes detailed notes on all the sessions – and titles include "Bootsie", "Vline", "Chet", "Mythe", "Blues March", "I Remember Clifford", "Not Serious", "Ca Turne", "Night & Day", "Deep Purple", and "Sweet Feeling".

Andy Bey/Harold Nicholas/June RichmondJazz In Paris – Harold Nicholas/June Richmond/Andy & The Bey Sisters ... CD
Universal (France), 1957/1959. Used ... $11.99
3 lost vocal gems from 50s Paris! The set pulls together some rare eps on the Barclay and Fontana labels – all the picture of Left Bank hip! The first 8 tracks are by Harold Nicholas – singing in French and English with a swinging combo on tunes that include "Que Reste-t-il De Nos Amours?", "That Old Black Magic", "Teach Me Tonight", and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" – in a style that's similar to early work by Claude Nougaro, but perhaps a bit more mellow. The next 4 tracks feature June Richmond singing with a hip group arranged by Quincy Jones – and featuring work by Billy Byers, Roger Guerin, Kenny Clarke, and Henri Renaud. Tracks on that set include "Sleep", "Everybody's Doing It", and "I've Gotta Right To Sing The Blues". The last two tracks are rare gems by Andy Bey and his sisters Salome and Geraldine – performing in the style of their classic Andy & The Bey Sisters albums in the US, and recorded in 1959, quite early in their career! Their two tracks are wonderful – and feature the trio grooving soulfully on the tunes "Smooth Sailin" and "Scoubidou". CD

Sonny GreySonny Grey & His Orchestra In Concert (En Directo plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1967. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
Trumpeter Sonny Grey has a brash, bold tone on his instrument here – similar to that of Jamaican contemporary Shake Keane – well-recorded out front of a larger ensemble in a Spanish performance – with these breakout solos that create a real sense of electricity throughout! In addition to Grey's trumpet, the group features work from a host of great players from the French scene where Sonny was making his home in the 60s – a lineup that includes Pierre Brissaud and Roger Guerin on trumpets, Bill Tamper and Jean Orieux on trombones, Raymond Leblond on tenor, and Jean Aldegon on alto – working with arrangements by Ivan Jullien and others. The vibe of the record is very similar to some of Jullien's best of the period – and titles include "Blue Jones", "Little Jazz", "Scotch Squatch", "Cry A Blue Tear", "No Sleep", and a version of "Work Song". CD features six more bonus tracks from a 1968 French live date – with Sonny's trumpet in the lead, trumpet from Ivan Jullien, and alto from Dominique Chanson and Philippe Mate – on titles that include "Antony", "Easy To Love", "Scorpion", "Head Under Legs", and "Tenor Madness".

Michel HausserMr Vibes – Michel Hausser Quartet & Octet Sessions 1958 to 1960 ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), Late 50s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 29.99
Michel Hausser was definitely "Mr Vibes" on the French scene of the 50s and 60s – a wonderful player on the instrument whose work on these tracks helped give the vibes as much of a place in European jazz world as the work of Milt Jackson over here in the US! Hauser's got a nicely sharp tone on the instrument – a good ear for the chromes on the vibes, but a quality that also mixes the sharpness of a percussive approach at times too – ringing out loud and proud on a selection of cuts from rare 10" albums, EP releases, and live material too! The scope of tracks here is fantastic – two sessions recorded with Bobby Jaspar on flute, another with Henri Renaud on piano, and another octet recording with Roger Guerin on trumpet, Bob Garcia on tenor, Rene Urteger on piano, and Dominique Chanson on flute and alto – plus live material with Arvanitas and Renaud, and one jam session track with Donald Byrd and Zoot Sims. 38 tracks in all, detailed notes on the sessions, and titles that include "Cliff Cliff", "Blues A San Pauli", "Made In Switzerland", "HEC Blues", "Rue Dauphone", "Blues Pour Le Chat", "Monsieur De", "Moanin", "4R", "Who You", "Phenil Isorpil Amine", and "Up In Hamburg".

Guy LafitteGuy Lafitte – His Tenor Sax & Orchestra 1954 to 1959 ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
Tenorist Guy Lafitte's a hell of a player – the kind of talent who easily rivaled some of the American greats of the postwar years on his instrument, but whose music rarely made it out of the French scene in which it was recorded! And although Lafitte sounded great in a small combo, his sound was bold enough to step out in larger groups too – which you'll hear hear on some of the sextet-plus groups that make up the recordings on the CD! The music's a great first step in the French jazz world as it was finding its own voice – and Lafitte blows alongside other giants who include Raymond Fol and Martial Solal on piano, Benny Vasseur on trombone, and Roger Guerin on trumpets – in this collection of material from some of his rare 10" album releases of the time. CD features 18 tracks in all – and titles include "Caravan", "Swingin The Berry's", "My Ideal", "Stay Cool", "Blues For Vidi", "Reminiscing Mood", "Cynthia's In Love", "Do Not Disturb", "Genevieve", and "Cameleon".

Guy LafitteGuy Lafitte – Quartet & Sextet Sessions 1956 to 1962 ... CD
Columbia/Fresh Sound (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A treasure trove of rare work from the great Guy Lafitte – a rich-voiced tenor talent from the French scene of the postwar years – every bit as important to their world as Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young were to ours! Lafitte's a player who came up in larger groups – and as such, developed a tone that could really stand out of the pack – a deep, soulful approach to jazz that's even more compelling in the small combo material features in this set – all tracks from rare 10" albums and 7" EP releases that are brought together here for the first time – a much-needed look at Lafitte's years before his more-circulated full albums recorded for RCA in the 60s and 70s. The sound is superb throughout – and other players include George Arvanitas and Raymond Fol on piano, Nat Peck on trombone, Roger Guerin on trumpet, and Dominique Chanson on alto and flute. Bop legend Kenny Hagood sings on three tracks – and titles include "Le Conte", "Corail", "Portrait De Camille", "A Song Was Born", "Queenie", "Tranquillment", "Plucky", "The Mill & The River", "Le Chat Qui Dort", and "Lonesome Lover Blues".

Martial SolalMartial Solal & His Orchestra 1956 to 1962 ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
Fantastic early work from Martial Solal – a player who's every bit as striking here in larger group recordings as he is in the trio and solo material that's dominated the later decades of his music! The groups are large, and filled with all-star musicians – yet the recording quality always seems to have Solal's piano strongly out front in the mix – spinning out these modern jazz solos that are really tremendous, and which often make for a fantastic contrast to some of the more forward-swinging modes of the rest of the group! If there's a French jazz musician from the late 50s you can think of, they're probably on one of these sessions – as players include Barney Wilen on tenor, Roger Guerin on trumpet, Benny Vasseur and Nat Peck on trombone, and Hubert Rostaing on alto – and rhythm is by Pierre Michelot on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums on a good number of tracks. The set features rare material from two 7" EP releases, and one full length set – all originals by Solal, with titles that include "Studio Fagon", "Yes Or No", "Petite Poupee", "Midi 1/4", "Horloge Parlant", "Fantasque", "Alhambra", and "Middle Jazz".
