Sam RiversContrasts (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ECM (Germany), 1979. New Copy ... $27.99 30.99
A beautifully avant session from ECM – and a great late 70s showcase for the reed talents of the great Sam Rivers! The album's got a mixture of focus and freedom that makes it one of Sam's best from this period – a group outing that features Rivers on tenor, soprano, and flute – in a quartet that features exceptional work on trombone from George Lewis, plus Dave Holland on bass and Thurman Barker on drums. And while the music has some of the open, improvised feel of Rivers' other 70s material – it's also got some of the sharper structure that we love in his earliest 60s work too – kind of a redefinition of "new thing" modes via fresh ideas explored in the loft jazz years. The album's a real standout in ECM from the time – and titles include "Circles", "Zip", "Solace", 'Dazzle", "Images", and "Lines". LP, Vinyl record album

Sam RiversDimensions & Extensions (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1967. Used ... $22.99
Some of the freest, most far-reaching work that Sam Rivers ever cut for Blue Note – a set recorded in 1967, but not issued until nearly a decade later by the label! The album's a great precursor of some of the work that Sam would do later in the 70s – still somewhat in a "new thing" mode, at points, but also sharper, and more angular too – with a nice sense of space in the playing. The group is a piano-less one – with Sam on reeds, joined by James Spaulding on alto, Donald Byrd on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, Steve Ellington on drums, and Cecil McBee on bass – all mighty hip players who really realize Rivers' vision perfectly. Titles include "Precis", "Paean", "Effusive Melange", "Involution", "Afflatus", and "Helix". CD

Roots (Nathan Davis, Sam Rivers, et al)Stablemates ... CD
In & Out (Germany), 1993. Used ... $9.99 11.99
A pretty great session – if only for the work of the sax players! The "stablemates" on the session are a host of older spiritual and soul jazz players – including Nathan Davis, Sam Rivers, Chico Freeman, and Arthur Blythe – alternating solos and coming together in some angular ensemble parts that really sound wonderful. The "Stablemates" reference is well chosen, as there's a lot of Benny Golson influences on the album – especially in the rhythm section of Don Pullen, Santi Debriano, and Idris Muhammad, who groove together with the crackling tightness that Golson would have used on a classic early 60s album, keeping the pace with a soulful swing, so that the horn players can cut loose in some modernist inflections. Titles include "Walkin", "I Remember Eric Dolphy", "Stolen Moments", "Linden Boulevard", and "Stablemates". CD

✨✧ Sam RiversPurple Violets ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 2005. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest Sam Rivers albums we've heard in years – a really compelling little set that has Sam playing in a relatively straight manner, and working alongside vibes-based Bryan Carrott trio! The mix of vibes, bass, and drums is a great accompaniment to Rivers' searching work on tenor, soprano sax, and flute – and many of the tunes have a slightly modal approach that keeps things rhythmic, and which seems to deepen Rivers' sense of soul a bit more than usual. A few tracks go a bit out, but there's a nicely straight feel to most of the numbers – and titles include "Solace", "The Mooche", "In Search Of Black Benny", "Moderation", "Space", "Abalone", and "Captain America".

No Business (Lithuania), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing music from the great Sam Rivers – and, like the other albums in this essential Archive Series, a performance that appears on record for the first time ever! The set has Rivers working on a live date in Italy from 1981 – really spinning things out in ways that recall some of the freewheeling concert improvisations he gave the world in the early 70s – music that really had Sam setting out almost a new agenda for a generation, which he follows through on strongly here with an unusual group that has Jerry Byrd on guitar, Rael-Wesley Grant on electric bass, and Steve Ellington on drums. The use of two electric instruments is slightly unusual, but comes across wonderfully – and the album has lots of long solo passages from each player, with work from Rivers on tenor, flute, and piano – shifting nicely throughout the long set.

Unissued work from the fantastic Sam Rivers – a live date recorded in Germany in 1979, with a vibe that's somewhere in the territory of Sam's late 70s albums for the Circle label with Joe Daley – but handled here in a nicely different way! Daley is in the group on euphonium and tuba, blowing these deep lines that are very moody and filled with a strong sense of "bottom" mixed with surprising melody in the improvisations – and other players include Dave Holland on bass and cello, and Thurman Barker on drums – the last of whom has a great way of pulsating with intensity, ala Rivers. Sam blows tenor, soprano, and flute, and also plays piano – and the set features one long improvisation that stretches out for almost an hour, divided into two sections. CD

No Business (Lithuania), 2002. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great late performance by Sam Rivers – one that has the musician working with all the free-thinking imagination he gave the world on his groundbreaking improvisation albums of the 70s! Sam blows tenor and soprano here, but is also pretty amazing on piano and flute – and the rest of the trio is equally multi-instrumental – as bassist Doug Matthews plays bass clarinet as well – and Anthony Cole not only handles drums, but also tenor and piano! The set begins with a beautifully bold, long improvisation – then moves into a number of shorter tracks with really fantastic shifts in sound and approach – before hitting another long improvisation near the end, and one more very long one as the final moment of the performance. Titles include "Unity", "Beatrice", "Offering", "Drum Solo", "Improvisation 1", "Bass Solo", and "Improvisation 3". CD

A searing live performance from Sam Rivers – never issued before, and recorded as one non-stop improvisation with a really amazing trio! Rivers plays tenor, soprano, flute, and piano – and the record is a great example of the constantly creative energy that he can bring to the fold – especially when working with Dave Holland on bass and Barry Altschul on drums – two players we've always loved, but who we're still blown away with in the company of the leader! The energy here matches classic 70s Rivers records on Impulse and Horo – and the single long improvisation, titled "Ricochet", runs for 52 minutes in length. CD

Posi tone, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
A freewheeling trio set from reedman Sam Rivers – the kind of hard-burning, open-ended record he does so well! Rivers' energy here is amazing – a fire that hasn't dimmed since the start of the 70s, when he first started letting loose like this – and throughout the course of the album's space, Sam plays tenor, soprano sax, flute, and piano – in a trio with Doug Mathews on bass and bass clarinet, and Anthony Cole on drums, tenor, and piano. Given that both players move between rhythm instruments and horns, they've really got the right sort of dexterity to match Sam's efforts – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Commemoration", "Observance", "Dedication", "Effusion", "Appreciation", and "Currents".

Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1964. New Copy Gatefold ... $38.99 39.99
Miles Davis' first-ever performance in Japan – a really unique concert that featured the quintet with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by a young Sam Rivers on tenor! The presence of Rivers really gives the set an edge – and although Miles is holding Sam a bit more in check than on some of his "new thing" albums from the time, there's an overall quality here that's different than the other Davis quintet albums of the time. The set was one of a number of important Miles Davis live sessions from the period – including albums from Berlin, Antibes, and Chicago – and titles include "If I Were A Bell", "My Funny Valentine", "So What", "Walkin'" and "All Of You".

Drummer Billy Hart's working in some solid modern company here – a host of compositions by legendary modernists who include Eric Dolphy, Ornette Coleman, Jaki Byard, Mal Waldron, and Sam Rivers – all delivered with fresh new energy by Billy's group of bold younger players! The lineup features the kind of horns that work perfectly cresting over tunes like these – trumpet from Jason Palmer and alto from Logan Richardson – and the set also adds in some striking vibes from Michael Pinto, underscoring one of our favorite side-streams of 60s modernism, but ringing out here with a freshness that's undeniable. Hart's core rhythm combo features Dan Tepfer on piano and Chris Tordini on bass – and titles include "Mrs Parker In KC", "Number Eight", "What Reason", "Fire Waltz", "Cyclic Episode", and "Out There".

Dave Holland QuartetConference Of The Birds ... CD
ECM, 1973. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the avant garde classics in the early catalog of ECM Records – a set that has bassist Dave Holland working with two key bandmates from the Circle group – Anthony Braxton on saxes and flute, and Barry Altschul on percussion – as well as the great Sam Rivers on flute and sax, who was really taking off at the time! All tracks are originals by Holland – and Rivers' emotive, flowing approach proves the perfect balance for Braxton's intellectual approach – in a setting that really brings the most out of both players, thanks in part to elastic rhythms from Holland and Altschul. The overall approach leaves a great deal of space on this atmospheric set – but not in the usual mellower ECM way. Titles include "Four Winds", "Q & A", "Conference Of The Birds", "Interception", "Now Here (Nowhere)", and "See Saw". CD

One of Bobby Hutcherson's most important albums ever – and an essential piece of "new thing" jazz that ranks up there with such key Blue note sessions of the genre as Tony Williams' album Life Time, Dolphy's Out To Lunch, and Jackie McLean's One Step Beyond! Hutcherson's sound on the vibes is amazing – metallic, yet melodic – in a sublime blend of the modern and the soulful, all wrapped up in tones and colors that few other players have ever managed to get from the instrument! All the other players on the session really rise to the occasion too – and the album features tremendous work from Sam Rivers, Freddie Hubbard, Andrew Hill, and Joe Chambers. Titles include "Ghetto Lights", "Catta", and "Idle While". CD also features the bonus track "Jasper" – not on the original LP! CD

Blue Note (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Moody material from Bobby Hutcherson – and one of the first records to feature his vibes in the company of tenorist Harold Land – a player who would help Hutcherson make some mighty fine music over the years! The set's got a super-hip group – with Stanley Cowell on piano, giving the record a warm, spiritual undercurrent – one that works perfectly with the lyrical soul of Land's horn. Other players include Reggie Johnson on bass and Joe Chambers on drums – and titles include "Spiral", "Ruth", "Poor People's March", and "Visions". The album also includes one more track – "Jasper" – which was recorded in a 1965 session without Land and Cowell – but with Sam Rivers on tenor and bass clarinet, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Andrew Hill on piano! Recorded in the 60s, but only initially issued on vinyl in 1979! CD

Music Revelation EnsembleIn The Name Of ... CD
DIW/Columbia, 1994. Used ... $19.99
Bold tones from the Music Revelation Ensemble – a group that's heavy on guitar work from James Blood Ulmer, but which also features some great guest reeds from Arthur Blythe, Sam Rivers, and Hamiett Bluiett! The core trio features Amin Ali on electric bass and Cornell Rochester on drums – moving in somewhat harmelodic formation – echoing Ulmer's styles of the decade before, but perhaps pushing his sound with a more forceful feel, possibly to showcase his crossing over to bigger audiences at the time. But the real charm here is the reed work – contributions that include alto from Blythe, baritone from Bluiett, and either soprano, tenor, or flute from Rivers – players that are heard separately from track to track, but who really help bring a deeper sense of spirit to the record. Titles include "The Dawn", "Mankind", "Purity", "Abundance", "In Time", and "Non-Believer". CD

The record is maybe one of the first times that Taylor was really able to break free on record – and hit the style that would become his standard for years to come – working here in an excellent quartet with Jimmy Lyons on alto, Sam Rivers on tenor and soprano, and Andrew Cyrille on drums! This volume includes "Second Act of A" part 1. The group perform "The Second Act Of A" (part 3), and the piece takes up both sides of the record. LP, Vinyl record album

Tony WilliamsLife Time & Spring Revisited ... CD
Hat Art (Switzerland), 1964/1965. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Two early classics from drummer Tony Williams – back to back on a single CD! First up is Life Time – a record that represents the pinnacle of Blue Note's "new thing" era! This amazing album was led by drummer Tony Williams (then just a wee lad, playing with Miles Davis, in his legendary 60s quintet) – but it's more of a "roundtable" session that features equal contributions by some of Blue Note's best avant garde players from the time, all of them young firey geniuses like Williams. The configurations of the players change drastically from track to track – and some feature Sam Rivers, Richard Davis, and Gary Peacock playing in a 2-bass and tenor lineup with Williams; others feature Bobby Hutcherson and Herbie Hancock playing heavily percussive vibes and piano solos next to Williams' assorted percussion playing; and one track doesn't even feature Williams at all, but has Herbie Hancock and Ron Carter in a beautifully moody bass and piano duet! The record is a treasure – and it's a landmark recording that's probably one of the greatest that Blue Note (or any other label) released during the 60s! Titles include "Barb's Song to The Wizard", "Memory", and "Two Pieces Of One: Red & Green". Spring is another gem – cut for Blue Note, back when he was just hitting the age of 20, and when he was already blowing the minds of masters like Jackie McLean (who first hired him) and Miles Davis (who stole him from Jackie for his own group!) with an approach to drumming that was freed from usual time constraints. Williams conception was so unique, other young modernists – like the album's Wayne Shorter and Sam Rivers on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, and Gary Peacock on bass – quickly benefited from his presence, as you'll hear in this amazing session that sounds very little like any other Blue Note release. Williams wrote all of the tracks, but the style is much freer than any sense of composition might imply – and the group is shaken up differently from track to track. Titles include "From Before", "Echo", and "Extras". CD

VariousYou Need This – An Introduction To Black Saint & Soul Note Records 1975 to 1985 (3LP set) ... LP
Black Saint/BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $29.99 36.99
A tremendous look at one of the coolest jazz labels of all time – and one that has an especially strong focus on the more spiritual side of its music! The paired Black Saint and Soul Note labels came along from the Italian scene right at a time when so many other American companies were shutting their doors – former spiritual jazz powerhouses like Strata East, Impulse, and Black Jazz were moving beyond the music, or disappearing entirely – which made the role of Black Saint/Soul Note such a crucial one! The company came into the game at a time of boundless creativity in American jazz – and really captured a post-Coltrane generation that was brimming over with fire and new ideas, but just needed a place to find expression – which it did at the label, who recorded dozens of albums in the space of less than a decade, nearly all of which have gone onto become classics over the years. And while there's a side of the label that's much more free jazz and avant garde, the cuts here reflect a Black Saint/Soul Note that's just slightly inside – tunes that are still freewheeling, but also have a rhythmic core – and the kinds of open, soaring solos that were first inspired in the 60s generation of Coltrane and Shepp. The choice of cuts is great – similar to the others in the If Music series – and titles include "Mr Seven" by M'Booom, "Joycie Girl" by Don Pullen with Sam Rivers, "Il Giro Del Giorno In 80 Mondi" by Enrico Rava, "Oasis" by Hamiet Bluiett, "Confessin" by John Stubblefield, "Joobubie" by George Adams & Dannie Richmond, "Verde Que Eu Te Quero Ver" by Rava String Band, "Down Home In New York" by Archie Shepp, "BK" by Air, and "The Nagual Julian" by Billy Bang Sextet.

The last remaining treasures from Andrew Hill's legendary years at Blue Note Records – a 3CD collection of incredible work from the late 70s, most of which has never been issued before! 6 of the collection's 31 tracks once appeared on the short-lived One For One reissue in the mid 70s – but the other 25 tracks here are seeing their release for the first time ever – and represent a wealth of genius from pivotal and under-documented years of Hill's career. Recordings are from the years 1967, 1969, and 1970 – with players that include Pat Patrick on flute and saxes, Benny Maupin on flute & saxes, Ron Careter on bass, Robin Kenyatta on alto, Sam Rivers on flute and saxes, Nadi Quamar on thumb piano and percussion, and Teddy Robinson on drums – and Hill plays his usual piano throughout, but also hits the organ on a few of the set's really standout tracks! There's a depth here that goes beyond even most of what we know from Andrew – a sound that's modern, yet often quite soulful – poised nicely between the Passing Ships and Grass Roots years of his career. Titles include "The Dance", "Moma", "Chained", "Sis At The Top", "Fragments", "Illusion", "Yomo", "Prevue", "Now", "Oriba", "Wake", "For Blue People Only", "Without Malice", "Ocho Rios", "Monkash", and "Mother's Tale".

Charlie Byrd & Woody HermanBamba Samba Bossa Nova – The Byrd & The Herd ... LP
Everest/Pickwick, 1959. Very Good ... $4.99
A rare bit of early bossa jazz from the US – an obscure 1959 session by Charlie Byrd, and one that predates most of his more famous work on Riverside, Columbia, and Verve! The session's a bit different than most of Charlie's lighter bossa recordings – in that it features his acoustic guitar work over bigger band backings from Woody Herman – done in modes that borrow a sense of sound and space from bossa nova, but which also share plenty of modern jazz touches as well. Arrangers for the record are Sid Feller and Ralph Burns – the latter of whom does a tremendous job with his 4-part "Summer Sequence" – a tone-based Kenton-esque suite that's a real standout part of the record, even if it's not as bossa-styled as some of the other work. Other tunes are all originals by Charlie – and include "Bamba Samba", "Love Song Ballad", "Prelude A Cha Cha", and "Original #2". LP, Vinyl record album

Argo/Verve, Late 50s. Used ... $5.99
Excellent early work by Johnny Griffin – a set that's a bit more obscure than some of his Blue Note classics to come, and which was recorded on the Chicago hometown scene from which he first sprang! The group here is a quartet – with Junior Mance on piano and Wilbur Ware on bass – the same lineup that graced the legendary Chicago Sound album under Ware's own name, which was issued on Riverside – a record that shares a lot with this one in its mix of soul and modernism, new ideas just brimming over from all of the young players involved. The album's overflowing with great tenor work from Griffin – angular, imaginative, and really breaking out of tenor modes of the early 50s. Original titles include "Lollypop", "Satin Wrap", "Riff Raff", and "Bee-Ees" – and the group does some nice work on a few mellower ballads as well! CD

Thelonious MonkThelonious Monk Orchestra At Town Hall ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good ... $34.99
A unique large group effort from Thelonious Monk – but one that bristles with all the angular energy of his other great work for Riverside! The group here is a tentet – filled with excellent players who include Donald Byrd, Phil Woods, Pepper Adams, Eddie Bert, Robert Northern, and Charlie Rouse – all supported by rhythm from the team of Sam Jones on bass and Art Taylor on drums, possibly one of the key factors for the success of the record! The album's comprised of Monk classics like "Little Rootie Tootie", "Thelonious", "Friday The 13th", "Off Minor", "Crepuscule with Nellie" and "Monk's Mood" – all arranged by Hall Overton, a little-remembered modernist from the 50s, but one with a keen dedication towards pushing new sounds from old formats! Overton really keeps the spirit of Monk's music intact here – penning charts that allow for plenty of solo space and the kind of cross-trading lines you'd hear in some of Monk's best multi-horn small group sides for Riverside! LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label, silver text, microphone logo, and deep groove. Vinyl is nice and clean, with a few light cosmetic marks. Cover has some light wear on front, and back has a bit of pen and a bit more light wear.)

✨✧ Bud PowellPortrait Of Thelonious (with bonus track) ... CD
Columbia, 1961. Used ... $7.99
Quite an interesting session from Bud Powell – a tribute to Thelonious Monk, recorded in Paris in 1961, but not issued until 1965, shortly before his death. Cannonball Adderley was the producer on the session, and it's got the same sort of groundbreaking approach as some of the other Cannonball-produced albums for Riverside from the same stretch – a bit more farther reaching than the players' work in an ordinary setting. Powell's take on the Monk sound is a very unusual one – a bit more fragile and tentative than Monk's own interpretations of the material, but performed with an equal commitment to a modern sound overall. Backing is from Kenny Clarke on drums and Pierre Michelot on bass – and titles include "No Name Blues", "Ruby My Dear", "Off Minor", "Squatty", and "Thelonious". CD

Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $6.99
A great little record, and one that shows just why Blue Note chose to put "amazing" in the title of every Bud Powell album they released! The set's a live one, done at Birdland – and Bud's working here with a trio that features the young Sam Jones on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – both musicians you might be more likely to hear over at Riverside Records, and who help give Powell a mighty solid formation here! There's a strong sense of cohesiveness to the trio, and we're always in love with Jones on bass – but it's also clear that Bud's the shining star of the date, as he amazes the world once again with his restless sense of imagination and creativity on the keys of the piano! Titles include "Marmalade", "Monopoly", "John's Abbey", "Dry Soul", "Time Waits", "Buster Rides Again", and two takes of "Sub City". CD

Steven & SterlingOne Magic Night ... CD
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
A groovy little gem from early 80s RCA – a set that sparkles with the same sort of energy as the label's work with Keni Burke at the time! Steven & Sterling are a hip duo who trade vocals back and forth nicely – working over rhythms that are mellow and midtempo, often with a hip undercurrent of jazz as well! The pair worked together previously in the trio Living Proof – but really come into their own here as a duo – with a mature sound that's even better than before. The players are a big factor in the album's sound – and they include Reggie Burke on keyboards, Paul Jackson Jr on guitar, Ollie E Brown on drums – all working with arrangements handled by Sylvester Rivers and the album's producer Tito Jackson – who's surprisingly sharp at the helm of the whole thing. The balance here is great – smooth, but never sleepy – and the record stays away from some of the more chart-friendly modes of the time. Titles include "One Magical Night", "Fragile", "Don't Stop", "Just One Step", "Dead Giveaway", and "Tomorrow". CD

A great Japanese take on the sound of Thelonious Monk at the end of the 50s – one that's led by pianist Masao Yagi, and which features some of the same dynamic horn interplay as Monk's best work on Riverside! Yagi's got a really great group here – with Sadao Watanabe on alto sax and Akira Nakano on trumpet – both stepping out in sharp-edged, angular lines at the front of the tunes – then soaring out in beautifully expressive solos on their own. Yagi's piano is strong too – surprisingly sensitive at times – and the record does a great job of nodding towards the original without clearly aping it too much. Titles include "Off Minor", "Evidence", "Monk's Mood", "Straight No Chaser", and "Blue Monk". CD

A masterful overview of American soul styles from the 60s – one that brings together a fair bit of deep soul gems, along with some other material that really helps round out the set in a great way! The package is superb – as the album comes with the same huge booklet that you'll find in the other Cairo releases from Mississippi Records – a big 12" square publication that's got notes on all the singers, and a wealth of vintage images – not just photos, but some other great bits too! There's plenty to love here if you like material from the Dave Godin Deep Soul series, or classic southern soul – and titles include "Got No One" by The Delcados, "No Man Is An Island" by The Van Dykes, "Sit Down & Cry" by Jean Wells, "Gotta Make A Comeback" by Eddie Floyd, "It's A Weak Man Who cries" by Eddie & Ernie, "The Dark End Of The Street" by The Glories, "A Love That Never Grows Cold" by Jimmy & Louise Tig, "Many Rivers To Cross" by The Raelettes, "Bad Girl" by The Fabulous Denos, "Long Lonely Broken Heart" by Kal's Kids, and "When I Grow Old" by the Symphonics.

An all-star set from Cannonball Adderley – a hip standout in his pre-Capitol years for Riverside! The "plus" in the title is pianist Wynton Kelly – who works with the group wonderfully on 4 of the album's 6 tracks – bringing in a slightly different feel on the keys than you might get from some of Cannon's other albums – slightly lyrical at points, in a really great way. Rhythm is from the rock-solid team of Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums – and of course Nat Adderley's also in the group on cornet, and Victor Feldman rounds out the ensemble on vibes, but also plays piano on the tracks that don't feature Kelly. There's a strong undercurrent of Adderley's Riverside soul jazz vibe on the set – and titles include "Arriving Soon", "New Delhi", "Winetone", "Well You Needn't", "Star Eyes", and "Lisa". CD

Made In Germany (Germany), 1975. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic live set from reedman Gary Bartz – captured here with his ultra-hip NTU group – who you might know from their classic albums on Milestone in the 70s! Gary's soaring out with a hell of a lot of pride and power right from the start – effortlessly spinning these long lines on soprano sax and alto, and bringing a bit of his voice into the mix too – working with a very sharp group that features Charles Mimms on both electric and acoustic piano, Curtis Robertson on bass, and Howard King on drums – players who follow Gary's lead wonderfully, and stretch out on some very long tracks that are even different than the spirit of the double-length live album that Bartz recorded around the same time. Titles include a smoking 24 minute take on "I've Known Rivers" – plus "Nation Time/Juju Man", "Rise/Celestial Blues/Sounding Song/Incident/Uhuru Sasa", "For The Love Of You", "Sweet Tooth", and "Peace & Love/Sifa Zote".

Mercury/Lonehill (Spain), 1956/1957/1958. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A huge amount of early material by Cannonball Adderley – 3 full albums for Mercury Records, plus live material from a variety of different settings! First in the set is the album Sophisticated Swing, a record that swings all the way – and it features a young Cannon blowing hard with a tight little combo that's kind of a precursor of his hit recordings on Riverside a few years later. Brother Nat's on cornet, and the rhythm's by Junior Mance, Jimmy Cobb, and Sam Jones. Adderley's solos are choppy and free – a bit more unbridled than on some of his later work, very pinched in tone, which makes for a wonderfully soulful sound. Titles include "Miss Jackie's Delight", "Another Kind Of Soul", "Jeanie", "Spectacular", and "Eddie McLin". On Cannonball Enroute, Cannon's working out his soul jazz groove nicely – and if we can take the "enroute" in the title to imply a transition from his more bop-driven roots, then so be it! The group's a quintet with players that form a great basis for Adderley's rolling sound – Nat Adderley on trumpet, Junior Mance on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Titles include "Porky", "Hoppin John", "That Funky Train", "I'll Remember April", and "18th Century Ballroom". Cannonball's Sharpshooters is one of Cannon's first really strongly voiced albums, and a key set in developing the idea of his working best in a set, soulful group. He's playing here with brother Nat on trumpet, Junior Mance on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and while not ever player is representative of the glory of the Riverside or Capitol years, they really come close, and the set opens Cannon and Nat up in a very in the pocket groove that is still mostly hardbop, but which is beginning to show distinct traces of soul jazz. Titles include "Jubilation", "Our Delight", "Fuller Bop Man", and "Stay On It". The remaining 7 tracks on the CD are from a Stars Of Jazz TV performance in 1956 and Newport Jazz Fest performance in 1957 – with titles that include "Cobb Web", "Spectacular", "Wee Dot", "Sermonette", "Sam's Tune", and "Hurricane Connie". 32 tracks in all!

Searing rockabilly work from the Texas scene of the late 50s – all work that came from the powerhouse TNT label out of San Antonio, and the related Marathon Records too! These cuts aren't country twangers, and are instead definitely the kind of raw early rockers that this series does such a good job of tracking down – really wonderful numbers that we never would have heard otherwise, and which explode with the same sort of energy that must have made them fantastic to hear from some backroom jukebox in a small corner tavern! As with the other volumes, there's very detailed notes within, and label scans too – the kind of package that makes this series such a great antidote to some of the more random rockabilly compilations out there. Titles include "China Doll" by Ray Stone, "Here I Come" by Jimmy Dee & The Offbeats, "Catapiller" by Ray Campi, "Set Me Free" by Bill Morrison, "I Love Her" by The Blue Notes, "One More Time" by The Traits, "Pink Bow Tie" by Jerry Dove & His String Dusters, "Duck Tail Cat" by Dan Virva & The Flying D Ramblers, "Trapped" by Cecil Moore & The Notes, "Living Myself To Death" by Chuck Goddard, "I Want You To Love Me Tonight" by Ray Liberto, and "Truck Drivers Special" by Lonnie Lille.

The album's overflowing with great tenor work from Griffin – angular, imaginative, and really breaking out of tenor modes of the early 50s.

Bethlehem, 1960. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of the most hard-hitting sessions ever recorded for the Bethlehem label – and a rare date for the imprint by the team of trumpeter Donald Byrd and saxophonist Pepper Adams! The style here is similar to work the pair recorded for Riverside and Blue Note at the same time – razor-sharp hardbop, played with a strong sense of imagination, and plenty of room for drawn-out, creatively-blown solos. Adams is especially great – playing the baritone here with the leanness of a tenor sax – but Byrd is wonderful too, and really starts to break out of some of the more staid modes of his work from a few years back. The group's a sextet that includes guitarist Kenny Burrell, pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer "Hey" Lewis (pseudonym for Lewis Hayes) – on titles that include "Trio", "Philson", "Libeccio", and "Bitty Ditty".

The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame.

The album's one of a number of key live sides from Cannon in the 60s – and although it pre-dates his work on Capitol, it's done in a similar spacious mode – with plenty of longish tracks that build upon the core groove set down by Joe Zawinul's piano, Sam Jones' bass, and Louis Hayes' drums – a perfect backdrop for the creative and complicated solos of Cannon on alto, Nat Adderley on cornet, and Yusef Lateef on tenor, flute, and oboe!

The group here is every bit as wonderful as the combos on those sets – a young Yusef Lateef on reeds, really hitting his stride in the mix of soulful and exotic grooves in the set – working with Nat Adderley on cornet, Joe Zawinul on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. The tunes are a good mix of modal numbers and more straightforward hardbop – and titles include "P Bouk", "Gemini", "Work Song", "Trouble In Mind", and "Dizzy's Business". LP, Vinyl record album

This record captures him in the prime of his early soul jazz fame – working with an unbelievably heavy quintet that featured Bobby Timmons on piano (with Barry Harris sitting in on a few tracks), Sam Jones on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and brother Nat Adderley on cornet. The quintet forged a sound that made them an immediate hit – and which had their tight, jagged, soul-drenched sound getting copied by everyone. The record features some amazing soul jazz standards – like Nat's original version of "Work Song", the first-ever record of Timmons' amazing "Dat Dere", Cannon's slinky "Them Dirty Blues", and the jaunty groover "Jeannine", a wonderful cut by Duke Pearson that never sounded better!

The Latin Impressions here are more Brazilian than Cuban – and maybe a bit Spanish, too – given the strong use of acoustic guitar from Charlie Byrd! The set's got a laidback, open feel – and Byrd's guitar work is mighty deft, yet without all the frills and flowers of some of the more dramatic, emotive players of the time – a great illustration of the huge shift that the early bossa guitar recordings had at a global level. Byrd was one of the first big American proponents of bossa, and you can definitely hear that influence at work here – amidst additional guitar from Gene Byrd, bass from Keter Betts, and drums from Bill Reichenbach. A few tunes feature Charlie on solo guitar with no backing – and titles include "O Pato", "Homage A Villa Lobos", "Bogota", "Vals", "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Amor Flamengo", and "Azul Tiple".

Watkins french horn is on about half the tracks on the album – and the others feature Griffin as the main soloist, backed by two string basses (Bill Lee and Larry Gales), plus drums by Ben Riley. The result is a very different, but very compelling album by Griff – and in combination with Watkins (who was well-accquainted with deep tenor sounds from his work with Charlie Rouse in Les Jazz Modes), he opens up a whole new side of his playing. Titles include "Nocturne", "Soft & Furry", "Same To You", "Connie's Bounce", and "Why Not?" CD

Barry HarrisBarry Harris At The Jazz Workshop (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Riverside (Japan), 1960. Used ... $19.99
Early genius from Barry Harris – a live date recorded at San Francisco's Jazz Workshop, and one that has him gently grooving in a mix of sharp edges and lyricism! In a world where many up and comers were tempted by the fruits of the soul jazz sound, Harris remains nicely true to himself – and plays here with a style that's almost introspective at times, certainly filled with the flowing modes of pianistic expression that would emerge in other players more strongly in years to come. The trio features Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums – and titles include "Curtain Call", "Lolita", and "Morning Coffee", plus jazz standards like "Woody N You", "Star Eyes", and "Moose The Mooche". CD features 3 bonus tracks! CD

Milt Jackson & Wes MontgomeryBags Meets Wes! (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Riverside, 1961. Used ... $5.99
A beautiful combination we'd like to hear more of – one that comes from the meeting of Milt Jackson's vibes and the guitar of Wes Montgomery – both recorded here in easygoing brilliance! The session's a nice break from the usual sound of both players at the time – and although Wes played a bit with vibes when working in The Montgomery Brothers, the Jackson approach here is a bit different – more soulful, and a bit more driven on by the rhythm section of Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones. Titles include the originals "SKJ", "Blue Roz", "Jingles", and "Sam Sack" – plus bonus tracks "Stairway To The Stars (take 2)" & "Delilah (take 3)". CD

Abbey LincolnAbbey Is Blue ... CD
Riverside, 1959. Used ... $3.99 5.99
Key early work by Abbey – no so much the "blue" album you'd guess from the title, but a session that's filled with the kind of anger and emotion that makes us love her so much when she's this good! The group here is very hip – an ensemble brought to the date by her then-partner Max Roach – with Max on drums, Tommy Turrentine on trumpet, Stanley Turrentine on tenor, and Julian Preister on trombone – all working with Abbey in a mode that's quite similar to her best appearances on Roach records from the same stretch! Titles include her amazing early version of "Afro Blue", plus "Lonely House", "Come Sunday", "Let Up", and a great version of Oscar Brown, Jr's "Brother Where Are You?" CD

A strong early winner from Blue – recorded with an all-star group that includes Curtis Fuller, Jimmy Heath, Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones. Mitchell's not necessarily the leader – Benny Golson and Jimmy Heath handled the arrangements – but the group overall is great, and the set has a nice mix of lyricality and hard bop groove. 9 numbers in all, including "Minor Vamp", "The Head", "Top Shelf", "Blue Soul", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Park Avenue Petite", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Nica's Dream", and "Waverly Street".

Blue MitchellOut Of The Blue ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $12.99
Nice hardbop from Blue Mitchell! He's heading up a quintet with Benny Golson, and Golson brings a tightness to the session that's missing from some of Blue's other Riverside albums. Art Blakey's on drums, and the bass position's held by either Sam Jones or Paul Chambers, both of which make for a nice solid bottom when paired with Blakey's playing. The record's got a great Golson compositon called "Blues On My Mind", plus "Boomerang", "Sweet Cakes", and "Missing You". CD

✨✧ Bobby TimmonsSweet & Soulful Sounds ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful mellow trio session from Bobby Timmons – done with a spare, relaxed approach that's a nice contrast to the recordings he was making for Prestige around the same time – but which still has the same deep, soulful approach to the piano that makes those records so great! Half a dozen trio numbers with Sam Jones and Roy McCurdy are rounded out with two piano solos, "God Bless The Child" and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most" – both of which present Bobby in an especially introspective mode, one you don't hear that often on record! Remaining trio tunes include "The Sweetest Sounds", "Turn Left", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Another Live One", "Alone Together", and "Why Was I Born". LP, Vinyl record album

Milestone/Prestige, Mid 50s-Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
Two of Randy's Weston's earliest albums – both recorded in the mid 50s, and briefly (and rarely) issued on the Riverside label. The album's feature Weston playing in a very spare setting – as only 5 of the tracks feature a trio (with Art Blakey on drums and Sam Gill on bass), and another 8 feature Weston and Gill musing intimately on some Cole Porter compositions. The remaining 5 tracks feature Weston solo, on standards and original tunes – and the titles on the set include "Zulu", "Pam's Waltz", "Solemn Meditation", "Again", "Lover", "I Love You", "Night & Day", "Get Out Of Town", and "Softness".

✨✧ James Clay & David Fathead NewmanSound Of The Wide Open Spaces ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Texas tenors locked in hard formation! The set's a wonderfully stripped-down set that has James Clay and David Fathead Newman playing head-to-head in a rootsy Texas tenor style jazz session – one that's a bit more open-ended and earthy than some of the faker tones on Newman's early work for Atlantic! The setting is nicely relaxed – New York blowing session, taken down south – and rhythm is from a trio that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Tracks are long, with lots of focus on the solos – and the set includes two hip compositions by Babs Gonzales – "Wide Open Spaces" and "Figger-ation" – plus the titles "Some Kinda Mean", "What's New", and "They Can't Take That Away From Me".

Everybody Digs Bill Evans – or at least it certainly seems that way from the cover endorsements by Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, and Ahmad Jamal – but the real proof is in the record, and the set is a great one from Bill's classic years on Riverside! Evans is at the peak of his early powers here – working with a straightforward rhythm combo that features Sam Jones on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but still hitting those beautifully fluid, beautifully spacious lines that set his playing apart from most who'd come before him. Tracks include 3 solo numbers – "Lucky To Be Me", "Peace Piece", and the very short "Epilogue" – plus trio tracks "Night & Day", "Minority", "Tenderly", and "Oleo". CD features 1 bonus track! CD

Is Bobby Timmons our all time favorite pianist? Well, if he's not, he's pretty darn near the top of the list! This sweet early side for Riverside finds him in his usual trio format, backed up by an agile rhythm section, Sam Jones and Jimmy Cobb, and serving up the hard swinging, soulful bop we love him for. Eight numbers in all, including three of his own, "Easy Does It", " A Little Busy" and "I Thought About You", a few standards and some modern numbers like "If You Could See Me Now", and "Groovin High".

Riverside, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest Cannonball Adderley albums from the Riverside years – a completely smoking live date recorded in San Francisco, often with long tracks that really let the group open up and do their thing! The lineup here is that classic one that first grabbed attention – the group with brother Nat on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, Louis Hayes on drums – and a young Bobby Timmons on piano, really cooking things up with tremendous drive, energy, and a sense of the groove! Titles include a great workout on Timmons' classic "This Here", plus originals "You Got It" and Spontaneous Combustion", and a great version of "Hi Fly". Soul jazz at its best, by one of the groups who gave the genre its name in the first place! CD also features the bonus track "Straight No Chaser". CD

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Sextet In New York (Keepnews collection) ... CD
Riverside/Concord, 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rock-solid live material from the classic Cannonball Adderley Sextet – a combo who could usually groove even better on a concert date then they could in the studio! The album's one of a number of key live sides from Cannon in the 60s – and although it pre-dates his work on Capitol, it's done in a similar spacious mode – with plenty of longish tracks that build upon the core groove set down by Joe Zawinul's piano, Sam Jones' bass, and Louis Hayes' drums – a perfect backdrop for the creative and complicated solos of Cannon on alto, Nat Adderley on cornet, and Yusef Lateef on tenor, flute, and oboe! The date was recorded live at the Village Vanguard in 1962 – and titles include "Gemini", "Planet Earth", "Dizzy's Business", "Syn-anthesia", "Scotch & Water", and "Cannon's Theme". CD

✨✧ Cannonball Adderley & The Bossa Rio SextetQuiet Nights ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". LP, Vinyl record album
