Hans Koller, Benny Bailey, Sahib Shihab, & OthersInternational Jazz Workshop ... LP
EmArcy, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $13.99
A great one – and the kind of European jazz album that kicks like a Clarke/Boland Big Band album! Hans Koller directs a large-scale swinging big band of some of the best European and American expatriot players of the time – like Sahib Shihab, Benny Bailey, Donald Byrd, Johnny Griffin, and Albert Mangelsdorff – and the set screams with intense solos, and a tight groove that pushes past any of the cliches you could imagine for a set like this. One of the things that makes the session great is some groovy organ, played by Infried Hoffman, the German player who was in Klaus Doldinger's early group. Doldinger's also on here, and his sound is way better than on his 70's work. Titles include "Hip Hit", "Revelation", "Conversation", "Knodel-Waltzer", and "Blazy Bones Revisited".

Sahib ShihabCompanionship – Jazz Joint Vol 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vogue/Rearward (Italy), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 34.98
Double-length brilliance from the mighty Sahib Shihab – a set that collects a number of killer 60s sessions with members of the Clarke Boland Big Band – all of them great! The small combo work here is amazing – hard-hitting modal jazz that matches, if not tops the best MPS/Saba sounds of the time – all produced to perfection with a really sharp edge, and a cutting approach to jazz that's gone onto inspired countless others in the current scene – including artists on Schema and Ricky-Tick Records, as well as most Japanese club jazz combos! But long before any of those cats started copping his groove, Sahib Shihab had it all totally together – a great ear for his own amazing solos on baritone and flute, and a way of hooking up with players like Francy Boland on piano, Fats Sadi on vibes, Benny Bailey on trumpet, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. All players here were Shihab's partners in the Clarke Boland Big Band, and they use these small combo sessions to explore some great new ideas – stripped-down groovers that are heavy on rhythm, and really allow full expression from all the players involved. Titles include "Companionship", "Om Mani Padme Hum", "Bohemia After Dark", "Serenata", "Yah Yah Blues", "Balafon", "Talk Some Yak-ee Dak", "The Turk's Bolero", "CT + CB", "Jay Jay", "Stoned Ghosts", "Just Give Me Time", and "Dijdar".

Sahib ShihabSahib Shihab & All Those Cats ... LP
Rearward/Schema (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 39.99
Although reed player Sahib Shihab made a few records in the US in the late 50's, it wasn't until he moved to Europe and started hanging out with the likes of the Clarke-Boland Big Band that his talents really started to flower. This cool new LP brings together 15 small-combo recordings made by Shihab and other members of the CBBB (like Fats Sadi, Benny Bailey, Francy Boland, and Jimmy Woode) during the mid 60's. All the material was recorded by CBBB manager/producer Gigi Campi, and none of the stuff's been issued before as far as we can tell. The groove is nice and swinging, with excellent rolling grooves by Sadi on bongos and vibes. Shihab plays both flute and baritone, and the set swings with the same sort of modal groove as the best Saba/MPS recordings from the time. Cuts include "Campi's Idea", "Dijdar", "Companionship (I + II)", "Peter's Waltz", "Om Mani Padme Hum", and "Herr Fixit". As with the other titles in this series, the music's accompanied by a great package, with loads of excellent photos, good notes, and stellar sound quality. This is the kind of stuff we collect jazz for, and it's great to have it in stock at a nice low price! LP, Vinyl record album

Sahib ShihabSeeds (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vogue/Rearward (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 32.98
A legendary album from saxophonist Sahib Shihab – a record that's gone onto become the birth of all things modal and club jazz in the current scene! Shihab always sounded great, no matter what the setting, but there was definitely something magical going on with this session – a one-of-a-kind energy that made his baritone and flute work sound incredibly soulful, searching, and searing – set up with a tight small combo that includes Francy Boland on piano, Fats Sadi on vibes, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – a hip slice of the Clarke Boland Big Band that works beautifully together! Every tune here is wonderful, and you're bound to recognized a few covered or sampled classics over the years – on cuts that include "Seeds", "Peter's Waltz", "Who'll Buy My Dream", "Another Samba", "Jay Jay", "Uma Fita De Tres Cores", and "Mauve".

Sahib ShihabSentiments ... CD
Storyville/Solid (Japan), 1965/1971. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99 About December 7, 2022 (delayed)
One of the coolest, most compelling albums we've ever heard from reedman Sahib Shihab – and that's saying a lot, given how much we love all his other music! This rare gem's got a very exotic feel –explained by Shihab in the notes as coming from a Tunisian influence on the leadoff track, but which also seems to influence the whole record all the way through – not just in Sahib's amazing phrasing on soprano, baritone, and flute – but also on the album's angular modal rhythms from Kenny Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Jimmy Hopps on drums. The record's one of the hippest that Drew's ever played on – and has a vibrant feel that's much more Saba/MPS than the usual sessions on Storyville. All tracks are original – and titles include "Ma'nee", "The Call", "Rue De La Harpe", "Sentiments", "From Me To You", and "Companionship". CD

✨✧ Leo Parker, Sahib Shihab, Red SaundersLate Great King Of The Baritone Sax – Rare Unissued Recordings Vintage 1951 to 1953 ... LP
Chess, Early 50s/1963. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set – and for more reasons than one! Most of the album features rare early 78s by jazz baritonist Leo Parker – one of the real giants on the instrument, and a player with a hard-wailing tone that makes it sound more like a tenor than a clunky giant-sized horn. Parker's tracks are all long out of print – and titles include "Tippin Lightly", "Anything Can Happen", "Candlelight Serenade", and "Hornet". The album also features a stellar modal groover from Sahib Shihab, recorded in Europe in 1963, and titled "Campi's Idea". The cut's very different than the rest of the record – but is almost worth the price alone! Also included is "Lawdy Lucy", by the Red Saunders group. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sahib Shihab & Jef GilsonSahib Shihab + Gilson Unit – La Marche Dans Le Desert ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing meeting of two of the most revolutionary talents on the European jazz scene of the early 70s – American expat Sahib Shihab, blowing some of his most exotic reeds ever – and pianist Jef Gilson, working here on electric keys and ondioline! The album's got a sound that echoes some of Gilson's most creative world/jazz experiments – a feel that definitely lives up to the desert march of the title, and which comes across with a loose, freewheeling sound that's almost in the territory of Sun Ra or Salah Ragab! Shihab plays baritone sax and Varitone soprano, and other group members include Bruno Di Gioia on flute, balafon, and bongos; Pierre Moret on Hohner organ, percussion, and ondioline; Maurice Bouhana on flute and percussion; and Jean-Claude Pourtier on whistle and percussion. Titles include the extended "Mirage (parts 1 & 2)" – plus "Les Touches Noires" and "La Marche Dans Le Desert". LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy, Late 50s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An almost-overlooked session on Savoy – but a great one, and a record that really carries that raw blowing session energy of the best work on Prestige at the time! Side one features a killer lineup that includes Sahib Shihab on baritone, Clifford Jordan on tenor, and John Jenkins on alto – all blowing in the front line with rhythm from the trio of Hank Jones on piano, Addison Farmer on bass, and Danny Richmond on drums. Side two features a lighter group – with Herbie Mann, Phil Woods, Eddie Costa, and Joe Puma – playing with the unusual rhythm accompaniment of Wilbur Ware on bass and Jerry Segal on drums. Tracks are all long, and nicely jamming – and titles include "SMTWTFSS Blues", "Rockaway", "Green Stamp Monsta", and "World Wide Boots". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sahib ShihabSahib's Jazz Party ... CD
Debut/Skokiaan (Germany), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the first European recordings from Sahib Shihab – a classic set that's the start of an amazing 60s run on the continent! Shihab here is quite different than his American dates of the 50s – bolder, and blowing with a really open, fluid sort of groove that marks a great development in his sound – using baritone sax, soprano, and flute – a range of instruments that really creates a wide range of feeling in the set! The performance is a live one, and the group is great too – with Allen Botschinsky on flugelhorn, Ole Molin on guitar, Niles Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and both Alex Riel and Bjarne Rostvold on drums. Rhythms are a key part of the set – really free and open, setting the scene for Sahib's modal genius to come – and titles include "47th Blues", "Billy Boy", and the 3-part track "Conversations". CD

Four altos in perfect formation – a record that captures a young Phil Woods at the height of his powers, and offers a rare non-baritone set from the great Sahib Shihab! The style here is similar to the Prestige tenor blowing sessions of the time – with core rhythms by a trio that features Mal Waldron on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and altos from the four players in the lead – coming together a bit at the start, then breaking off into some really wonderful solo work that's arguably tighter and better executed than most tenor sessions of this type! Titles include "Pedal Eyes", "Kokochee", "No More Nights", "Kinda Kanonic", and "Staggers". LP, Vinyl record album

Ricky Tick (Finland), 2004. Very Good+ (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Three groovy sides of the ever-impressive sounds of Five Corners Quintet, plus an allstar bevy of guest knob twirlers – on two sides of vinyl! "Three Corners" is a pert-near perfect taste of jazzy samba – remixed by the masterful touch of Nicola Conte! The Conte/Sahib Shihab/Five Corners collabo is a timeless number – rich, percussion heavy samba that builds into a jazzier piece led by sax and trombone, and back into the driving drums for the close. "Devil Kicks" is given two runs on the B-side – a squishy programmed beat and an incredible vibraphone performance lead the Sumo On Wheels mix, and the beats are kicked into an even faster clip on the Dharmaone mix. 12-inch, Vinyl record

In fact, much of the personnel remains the same, and the group includes Benny Bailey, Tony Coe, Ronnie Scott, and Sahib Shihab.

Rare tracks by the Clarke-Boland Sextet – a small group offshoot of the funky Big Band that was led by Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland – and which featured some of the key soloists in the group! The lineup here includes Sahib Shihab on flute, Fats Sadi on vibes and bongos, Joe Harris on percussion, and Jimmy Woode on bass – plus Clarke and Boland on drums and piano, respectively – a wonderful group that has an incredible sense of rhythm, and comes up with loads of wonderful modal numbers throughout! The vibe is wonderful – and the collection's a great look at this unusual combo – filled with fire and soul – and proof that in the jazz world, at least, great things can happen when global boundaries are crossed.

One of the hippest albums ever from the team of Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland – a unique small combo session that's even groovier than their famous big band work! The setting is wonderful – Clarke on drums, Boland on piano, and a sextet lineup that includes Sahib Shihab on flute, Fats Sadi on vibes, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Joe Harris on percussion – all players who know each other well, and groove together as one amazing unit on the set! The tunes here are lyrical and lively, modal and moving, and still some of the freshest jazz cut on the European scene of the 60s – music that's having a huge impact these days in the club jazz underground. Shihab's flute work is sublime, especially next to Sadi's vibes – and Harris' added percussion gives a number of the cuts a bit of a Latin kick that's totally great! There's a bit of vocals on the set, and titles include "Ebony Samba", "Tin Tin Deo", "Potter's Crossing", "Wives & Lovers", "Ensadinado", "Lorraine", "Day By Day", "Love Hungry", and "Please Don't Leave".

Great early genius from the Clarke Boland Big Band – proof that Kenny and Francy were onto something great, right from the start! The album really has the group hitting the heights of their MPS years – stretching out way past earlier big band modes, into the hip mix of rhythms and soulful solos that made the ensemble unlike any other group in the 60s – a really groundbreaking approach to their music, delivered by a range of top-shelf players! Arrangements are by Boland, who also plays piano – and other group members include Benny Bailey and Jimmy Deuchar on trumpets, Derek Humble on alto sax, Carl Drewo and Zoot Sims on tenor, Sahib Shihab on baritone sax and flute, and Ake Persson on trombone – plus rhythm from the rock-solid duo of Jimmy Woode on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums. Titles include the Latin-tinged "Los Bravos", and more great originals by Boland – including "Volutes", "The Styx", "Charon's Ferry", and "Box 703 Washington DC" – plus versions of "Gloria" and "Last Train From Overbrook".

Mid 70's 2LP set that combines fantastic early work from Gil Evans and Tadd Dameron. The Gil Evans tracks are shorter and less ambitious than some of Evans' work on Impulse, but the group is excellent – and even in a shorter format, the conception of the work still contains plenty of rich new ideas. Players include Louis Mucci, John Carisi, Steve Lacy, Willie Ruff, Paul Chambers, Nick Stabulis, and Lee Konitz on alto. Titles include "Ella Speed", "Big Stuff", "Jambangle", "Nobody's Heart", and "Remember". Tadd Dameron's contributions here are from a wonderful modernist session – and one that's especially great because it's filled with fresh themes that get past some of his over-reissued standards!

The format features Fuller's trombone in the lead, plus alto by Sahib Shihab – and the pair are backed up by a twin French horn lineup played by Julius Watkins and David Amram. If the horns sound hokey, don't worry, because they're not. If you've heard Watkins hardbop work, you know he can make things swing whatever the format – and the added French horns work more like an extra brace of trumpets, coloring the performance with extra washes of color, and a harsh-edged rhythm on the best cuts. Hampton Hawes plays piano, Addison Farmer is on bass, and Jerry Segal rounds out the group on drums. Tracks include "Roc & Troll", "A-Drift", "Lyriste", "No Crooks", and "Ronnie's Tune". CD

The session's a bit like some of Milt's soul jazz work for Riverside and other labels – in that it's got rhythms, timings, and solos that all are much more gutbuckety than you'd expect from the other side of his career – a real nod towards the nascent soul jazz sound in the late 50s, served up with lots of undercurrents from R&B and gospel in the mix. Side one features players that include Ronnie Peters on alto sax, Frank Foster on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone – plus Horace Silver on piano – and Silver makes a return appearance on side two, alongside a group that includes Lucky Thompson on tenor and Joe Newman on trumpet.

Mercury/EmArcy, Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
A great 80s EmArcy two-fer from Q's Mercury years! The Birth Of A Band is a very swingin', very groovy early album from Quincy – one that's clearly in the big band mode, but handled with soulful touches that really set it apart from the genre! The band is a great one all the way through – and the album features solos by Zoot Sims, Jerome Richardson, Phil Woods, Clark Terry, and Harry Edison. Tracks are very often in a soul jazz mode – arranged by Quincy and Melba Liston – and featuring versions of some of the best jazz compositions of the time. Titles include "Moanin", "I Remember Clifford", "Along Came Betty", and "Whisper Not". Quincy's world is great and wide indeed – and even at this early point in his career, he was displaying a wonderful talent for bringing in bits from all sources! The album's essentially a straight jazz set, but it's got some great exotic touches that are in keeping with the "world" theme and the globe-trotting titles on the set. The group's excellent too – with players that include Sahib Shihab, Budd Johnson, Les Spann, Lee Morgan, and Phil Woods – all working through hip arrangements by Al Cohn, Bill Potts, and Ernie Wilkins. Titles include "Ghana", "Air Mail Special", "Chant Of The Weed", "Eesom", and "I Never Has Seen Snow". Plus, this set adds "Midnight Sun Will Never Set" from the Birth Of sessions!

Lost work from Quincy – recorded live in Switzerland around the same time as his Great Wide World album, but featuring a slightly different group – and a sound that's a lot more open! Players on the set include Les Spann on flute and guitar, Patti Brown on piano, Benny Bailey and Freddie Hubbard on trumpets, Curtis Fuller and Melba Liston on trombones, and Sahib Shihab on baritone sax – and the tracks are long, with some nice solo space throughout.

(Mid 80s Japanese Phonogram pressing, with obi and insert. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Quincy JonesLive In Paris – 14 Mars 1961 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1961. Used ... $9.99
Hard-driving live work from Quincy Jones – material recorded during one of the most productive, creative years of his large jazz ensemble! Material is from a very hip all-star group – and in addition to the sorts of tracks that Quincy was doing for ABC and Mercury during the period, there's also some longer, extended tunes that really showcase the growing complexity of Quincy's music – and that visionary quality that would make him one of the hippest bandleaders in the world by the end of the 60s! Players include Sahib Shihab on baritone, Phil Woods on alto, Budd Johnson and Eric Dixon on tenor, Freddie Hubbard and Benny Bailey on trumpets, Melba Liston and Curtis Fuller on trombones, Les Spann on guitar and flute, Patti Brown on piano, Stu Martin on drums, and Patato Valdes on congas – and long tracks include extended takes on "Stolen Moments"," Africana", and "Banja Luka" – plus other titles that include "Gwan Train", "Moanin", "Solitude", "Caravan", "Boy In The Tree", and "Summertime".

Jackie McLean & Dexter GordonMeeting Vol 1 ... LP
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1976. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A great meeting of two generations of jazz – and one that really blows the top off some of Dexter Gordon's other European sessions of the time! The setting here is definitely one that's more a Gordon-based date – long tracks with rhythm backing from a trio with Kenny Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Alex Riel on drums. But unlike some of the other long-blown Gordon-heavy albums for the stretch, the presence of Jackie McLean really brings in a new sort of fire – the kind of soaring, soulful energy he brought to his own records in these immediate post-Blue Note years – almost a Coltrane influence, and a sense of spiritualism that really comes through on some of his solo moments – even in this relatively straight setting. Titles include Gordon's "All Clean", Sahib Shihab's "Rue De La Harpe", Drew's "Sunset", and a nice take of "On The Trail". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing on Inner City.)

✨✧ Carmen McRae with the Clarke Boland Big BandNovember Girl (Jazzman pressing) ... LP
Jazzman, 1970. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A rare gem from the Clarke Boland Big Band – and one of the group's few vocal sessions ever! The album's a really unique one – recorded in the UK in 1970, and featuring singer Carmen McCrae joining the group for a fresh and unusual batch of tracks – most of them originals written for the session! The CBBB is in fine fine form throughout – hard-swinging with an impossibly tight sound, and featuring solo work by Tony Coe, Sahib Shihab, and Billy Mitchell. But even more surprising is Carmen – really opening up on the record, thanks to the fresh, new material – and hitting dark moods that perfectly fit the November Girl title of the session! Titles include "Just Give Me Time", "A Handful Of Soul", "Dear Death", "My Kinda World", and "November Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1944/1947/1948. Used 4 CDs ... $19.99
A fantastic collection of Monk material for Blue Note – recorded in a few different periods and settings! The package features some late 40s sides with Idrees Sulieman on trumpet and Billy Smith on tenor; 1947 trio material with Art Blakey on drums; a 1947 quartet with Sahib Shihab on alto; a 1948 group with Milt Jackson on vibes and a bit of vocals from Kenny Pancho Hagood; a 1941 quintet with Shihab, Jackson, and Blakey; a 1952 group with Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Lucky Thompson on tenor, and Lou Donaldson on alto; and a 1957 session cut with tenorist Sonny Rollins. Includes some unissued tracks, too! CD

Tony Scott & Jimmy KnepperFree Blown Jazz ... LP
Carlton, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of Tony Scott's best records from the time, and an excellent batch of tracks that really shows the direction he would head in the 60s. Scott's solos are incredibly open-ended – and he's backed by a group of hip players that includes Henry Grimes, Bill Evans, Paul Motian, and Sahib Shihab. Knepper's pretty good, too – but he lacks some of the fire he has in his recordings with Mingus. Titles include "The Chant", "The Explorer", "Body & Soul", and "Portrait Of Ravi", which shows his early interest in Latin music. LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear & aging, partial splitting on seams. Includes Carlton inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Milt JacksonMilton Jackson – Wizard Of The Vibes (10 inch LP) (Vogue) ... LP
Vogue (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wicked early work from Milt Jackson – a record that's got a lot more of an edge than some of his later work with the Modern Jazz Quartet – a near-perfect modernist bop sound that's every bit the best side of Blue Note in the early 50s! The groups here are really great – one a quintet that features Jackson's partners in the MJQ – John Lewis on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums (who was in the first rendition of the quartet) – the group's also joined by Lou Donaldson on alto sax, who blows with this boppish edge that really deepens the sound! And the other quintet is even better – with Thelonious Monk on piano and Sahib Shihab on alto sax. Milt's vibes ring out in this boldly chromatic way – clearly a sense of discovery in process during the session – and titles include "Bag's Groove", "On The Scene", "Willow Weep For Me", "Criss Cross", "Eronel", "Tahiti", and "What's New". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some edge wear, discoloration from age, and a vintage price sticker in back.)

✨✧ Phil WoodsRights Of Swing (Music Heritage Society) ... LP
Candid/Musical Heritage Society, 1961. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really compelling large group work from Phil Woods – one of his first-ever efforts of its type, and a tremendous session that's filled with solos from a wide array of very hip players! The whole album's built around a 5-part "Rights Of Swing" work penned by Woods – a jazz modern number that's obviously taking off of Stravinsky, but without any classical overtones at all – just jazz-based instrumentation from players who include Benny Bailey on trumpet, Julius Watkins on French horn, Sahib Shihab on baritone sax, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Curtis Fuller on trombone. The horn interplay is wonderful – and the solos are too! LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wicked early work from Milt Jackson – a record that's got a lot more of an edge than some of his later work with the Modern Jazz Quartet – a near-perfect modernist bop sound that's every bit the best side of Blue Note in the early 50s! The package brings together material from a few different sessions – some originally on 10" LPs – and the core of the material features Jackson in the company of pianist Thelonious Monk, on some tracks that also feature Sahib Shihab on alto sax! John Lewis plays piano on another batch of tracks that are essentially the early MJQ lineup, but with Lou Donaldson on alto too – so they swing with a bit more soul than you might expect. Titles include "Bag's Groove", "On The Scene", "Willow Weep For Me", "Criss Cross", "Evidence", "Tahiti", "Misterioso", "Four In One", and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Part of the Blue Note Classic Vinyl Series!)

✨✧ Jazz ModesJazz Modes ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest albums by this fantastic combo from the late 50s! The band features the very strange mix of French horn, tenor, and soulful piano – played by Julius Watkins, Charlie Rouse, and Gildo Mahones, respectively. The sound shouldn't work, but it does, and beautifully – thanks to some pretty soulful rhythm work, and a nice conception that never gets too cute, or too full of itself. Rouse is great, and has a measured quality that hints at his work with Monk, but which also has a bit more soul. Mahones is always great, and is one of the true unsung heroes of soul jazz piano – and as an added unique element, the album features eerie vocals from Eileen Gilbert on a few numbers! Sahib Shihab sits in on a few cuts – and titles include "Knittin", "Blue Flame", "Mood In Motion", and "The Oblong". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing, with deep groove. Cover has two small numbers on back, and one slightly bumped corner – but this is a nice clean copy overall.)

✨✧ Mal WaldronMal 2 ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stunningly powerful batch of hardbop tracks from Mal Waldron, featuring a group that includes Coltrane, Jackie McLean, Sahib Shihab, Bill Hardman, and Art Taylor. The groove is incredible, and the tracks scream with a sheer raw power that is sometimes missing from these late 50's Prestige sides. Waldron takes all of his imagination from the looser "blowing" sessions for the label, and packs it into tight arrangements and compositions that bring out the best in all soloists. As with all of Waldron's early recordings, the album is excellent all the way through, and since this CD includes some extra tracks, you've got an even bigger serving of excellent hardbop than the original LP! Titles include "Potpourri", "JM's Dream Doll", "Blue Calypso", "One By One", "From This Moment On", and "Don't Explain". CD

Prestige/OJC, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Classic early John Coltrane for Prestige – less a bold statement as a leader than a strong batch of blowing session-styled tracks that show how well Coltrane could hold his own with more established players! The groups on the set vary from track to track – and feature players that include Sahib Shihab, Mal Waldron, Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Al Heath – plus underappreciated Philly trumpeter Johnnie Splawn. Trane's in great form here – even though the overall set's a bit less structured than some of his later albums – and his tone and solo approach are already stepping out from the rest of the pack with great vigor! Titles include "Bakai", "Time Was", "Straight Street", and "Chronic Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny GriffinLady Heavy Bottom's Waltz (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Rearward/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest Johnny Griffin albums ever – a set recorded as a side project when Griff was working with the Clarke Boland Big Band – in a lineup that features some of the best members from that great ensemble! The style's a bit more laidback and soulful than other CBBB projects – more in the mode of Johnny's roots in Chicago during the 50s, but still inflected with some of the sharper touches he picked up during his 60s years in Europe. Other players here are all wonderful – and include Benny Bailey on trumpet, Sahib Shihab on baritone sax, Ake Persson on trombone, Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and both Kenny Clarke and Kenny Clare on drums – seemingly playing together on some tracks, which creates a nicely skittish rhythm in the set! Titles include "The Turk's Bolero", "Deep Eight", "A Handful Of Soul", "Foot Patting", and "Lady Heavy Bottom's Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album
(Please note that the LP has two Side 1 labels on it but the records fine.)

✨✧ Clarke Boland Big BandComplete Live Recordings At Ronnie Scott's – Volcano/Rue Chaptal ... CD
MPS/Rearward (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A large group in a small club – the legendary Clarke Boland Big Band, playing at the home turf of one of their key members – tenorist Ronnie Scott! The set features a very legendary performance by the ensemble – a crack lineup that's easily one of the best ever sported by the CBBB – perfectly mixing American rhythms, and a trans-Atlantic lineup of soloists – all tied together with just the sort of rich arrangements that make the group so great! Things groove right from the get-go – thanks to a rhythm lineup that features Kenny Clarke on drums, and Francy Boland on piano – plus bassist Ron Matthewson, sitting in for the usual Jimmy Woode. The horn players really send things off, though – tight trumpets from Benny Bailey, Idrees Sulieman, and Dusko Goykovich; bold trombones from Ake Persson and Nat Peck; and some searing reed lines from Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, Derek Humble on alto, Sahib Shihab on baritone, and Tony Coe on both tenor and clarinet. This CD features both the first and second sets at Scotts by the group – albums titled Volcano and Rue Chaptal – with titles that include "Volcano", "Griff's Groove", "Now Hear My Meanin", "Box 703 Washington DC", "Thence We Issued Out Again to See the Stars", "Rue Chaptal", "I Don't Want Nothin From Nobody & I Ain't Giving Nothin Away", "Sax No End", "Minor Blues", and "The Girl & The Turk".
