Art BlakeyArt Blakey & The Jazz Messengers (Savoy) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Savoy (Japan), 1957. Used ... $14.99
During the late 50s – after an initial burst of recordings with Blue Note, and before a later successful run for the label – Art Blakey recorded on a number of labels with a lesser-known version of The Jazz Messengers. This album's from that stretch – and like others from the period it's a darn nice batch of tracks, and while it lacks some of the polished tightness of the later Blue Notes it crackles with the energy that's been the Jazz Messengers trademark from day one. The group features Bill Hardman on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, and Sam Dockery on piano – and the set's a loose batch of hardbop numbers like "Casino", "Ugh!", "Mirage", "The Biddie Griddies", "Potpourri" and "Reflections Of Buhania".

Milt JacksonSecond Nature – The Savoy Sessions ... LP
Savoy, Mid 50s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A great collection of Milt's excellent sides as a leader for Savoy, pulled together for a 70s release. Wonderful bop rendered here in a small agile group that features the vibist alongside the great Lucky Thompson on tenor, with Hank Jones, Wendell Marshall and Kenny Clarke in the rhythm section. These tracks were cut in the mid 50s, when Savoy was transitioning from the early bop 78's that were their stock in trade to making longer LP sessions giving the players a bit more room to stretch out. 16 numbers in all, including "Flamingo", "Can't Help Lovin' That Man", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Ellington Medley" "Now's The Time", "Soul In 3/4", "Minor Conception", "Fred's Mood", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "Angel Face" and "Soulful".

Robin KenyattaStompin' At The Savoy ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A great blend of older jazz styles and the sweet 70s funk of Robin Kenyatta – served up with a hip sort of sparkle overall! There's a few familiar jazz modes in here that definitely live up to the spirit of the title – but most of the record is more open, laidback, and somewhat spiritual – thanks to help from a hip lineup that includes Billy Harper on tenor sax, Dwight Brewster and Larry Willis on electric piano, Winston Wright on organ, Lew Soloff on trumpet, and Jimmy Knepper on trombone! Some of the best tracks here are surprisingly open and earthy – almost pointing back towards Kenyatta's Until album, but a bit more inside – and other cuts have a warmer sort of 70s glow, more in the mode that Robin was hitting on other Atlantic albums of the time. Titles include "The Need To Smile", "Mellow In The Park", "Jessica", "River Boat", "Two Bass Blues", and "Smooth Sailing". CD

Timo LassyBig Brass – Live At Savoy Theatre Helsinki ... CD
MustHaveJazz/Membran (Finland), 2020. New Copy ... $18.99
A gem of a record from Finnish saxophonist Timo Lassy – a straight jazz set that reunites him with members of the Ricky Tick Big Band – including some of the musicians who first made big waves with Timo on record in the early part of this century! Lassy's at his best here – really creative as a soloist, and dropping some of the more groove-oriented qualities you'd hear on his other records – to work in an array of soulful sounds with a core quintet that includes electric piano, bass, drums, and percussion – augmented by larger horns from the Ricky Tick band, arranged by Valtteri Laurell Poyhonen, and featuring solos from Jukka Eskola and Kalevi Louhivuori on trumpets, and Aaro Huopainen on trombone. The tunes move along with a nice sense of rhythm, but also have all these amazing colors and tones that burst out with a great sense of delight throughout the performance – on titles that include "Teddy The Sweeper", "Waltz Unsolved", "Grande Opening", "Universal Four", "African Rumble", and "Sweet Spot".

Red NorvoRed Norvo Trio With Tal Farlow & Charles Mingus – The Savoy Sessions ... CD
Savoy, 1950/1951. Used ... $6.99
Norvo may have cut some sleepy recordings in his day, but his early sides are usually all pretty great – especially this material, recorded with Tal Farlow on guitar and Charles Mingus on bass! The drum-less combination of vibes, guitar, and bass makes for an almost-exotic approach – one that rings out with some new moods and tones on tracks that are old standards – in a manner that really helps us understand why folks from the old days think Norvo's so great! Titles include "Night & Day", "Godchild", "September Song", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Swedish Pastry", "Time & Tide", "Little White Lies", and "Prelude To A Kiss". CD

VariousStranger I May Be – Savoy Gospel 1954 to 1966 ... LP
Savoy/Honest Jons (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
An insanely fantastic look at the strong legacy of gospel music from Savoy Records – a company who were initially a powerhouse in the fields of jazz and R&B, but who moved into the gospel world and dominated that market for decades! Savoy is a bit like Chess Records – a company who really learned how to record blues singers and soulful styles from the secular world, then used that same ability to work some real magic on songs from the more spiritual side of the spectrum – an approach that really made for top-shelf music, even as the decades moved on! Savoy's gospel legacy has always been a bit underground – not nearly as reissued for larger audiences as their jazz and blues material – but this collection does a great job of correcting that lack, by presenting their music in a wonderful format – all in a mix of rare cuts and classics from the gospel underground. This first volume focuses on work from the earliest years of Savoy's gospel productions – and features 24 tracks by The Davis Sisters, Gospel Chimes, Jimmy Scott, Roberta Martin Singers, Swindell Brothers, Christones, Gospel Harmonettes Specials, Harmonizing Five, Famous Ward Singers, Blind Boys Of Alabama, Stars Of Faith, Gospel Cavaliers, and even the Staple Singers!

Savoy/Nippon (Japan), 1945/1946. Used ... $3.99
Amazing work from the early, legendary years of Billy Eckstine – that time when he was fronting one of the hippest backing groups a vocalist could hope to have! Eckstine's voice was already becoming the stuff of legend by the time of these recordings – but thanks to contributions from a host of famous boppers, his band was getting equal fame, too – a really legendary lineup that includes such greats as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Kenny Dorham, and Fats Navarro on trumpets; Wardell Gray, Dexter Gordon, and Gene Ammons on tenor; Leo Parker on baritone; Art Blakey on drums; and many other huge names too! The band was virtually a school for a whole generation of jazzmen to come – allowing them to play together, get to know each other, and spin off in important small groups – much in the way the Kenton group a few years later allowed so much development on the west coast. And amidst all this great music, Billy's vocals have never sounded better – much bolder and hard-swinging than in later years! CD

Savoy, 1960. Used ... $14.99
Killer stuff from Booker Ervin – and one of his first sessions as a leader! The album was recorded during a stretch when Ervin was coming into fame as a member of the Mingus group – and he's playing here with a number of Mingus-ites like Richard Williams on trumpet, Horace Parlan on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums – plus some great bass work from George Tucker – not exactly Mingus, but with a soulful undercurrent that's totally great! The record's got a hardbop groove with a modernist tinge, and it features some excellent playing by Booker that shows off both sides of his style – the deep Texas tenor roots, and some of the sharper tones he picked up with Mingus. Tracks include "Mister Wiggles", "Well Well", "Dee Da Do", and "Down in the Dumps". CD

Curtis FullerJazz – It's Magic! ... CD
Regent/Savoy, 1957. Used ... $16.99
One of the great dates that Curtis Fuller cut for the Savoy label in the late 50s – material that's much more hard-edged than his Blue Note sessions, and which points the way towards a rich legacy of jazz work in decades to come! The group here has a nicely open, laidback approach – that Savoy style that was almost a blowing session mode, but a bit more controlled – long tracks handled by the group with some of the energy they might bring to a live club performance of the time. The groove is mostly hardbop – with Curtis Fuller's trombone and Sonny Red's alto taking strong solos – in a group that also features Tommy Flanagan on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. Titles include a medley of "It's Magic/My One & Only Love/They Didn't Believe Me" – plus "Two Ton", "Soul Station", "Club Car", and "Upper Berth". CD

Classic early bop material from Dexter Gordon – originally issued as 78s in the 40s, and packaged here in a hip 50s album with a very groovy cover! The set features work from 1945, 1946, and 1947 – with Gordon in different three different groups – one with Leo Parker on baritone and Tadd Dameron on piano, one with Leonard Hawkins on trumpet and Bud Powell on piano, and one with Argonne Horton on piano. Titles include "Setting The Pace (parts 1 & 2)", "Dexter's Riff", "So Easy", "Long Tall Dexter", "Dexter Digs In", and "Dexter's Deck". CD

Milt JacksonOpus De Jazz (first cover) ... LP
Savoy, 1955. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the best-known 50s jazz sessions from the Savoy label – a laidback classic that's a great illustration of the label's shift in modes after the early bop years! The setting here is relatively informal – with Milt Jackson as the ersatz leader, working almost in blowing session mode with hip players who include Frank Wess on flute and tenor, Hank Jones on piano, Eddie Jones on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums – all players who relax into a groove wonderfully, and really open up on the album's four long tracks. Titles include the classic reading of "Opus De Funk", plus "Opus Pocus", "You Leave Me Breathless", and "Opus & Interlude". LP, Vinyl record album

Fats NavarroFats Navarro Memorial Album ... CD
Savoy, 1946/1947. Used ... $6.99
One of the few full albums ever issued under the name of trumpeter Fats Navarro – and like most of them, a posthumous collection of material cut before his untimely early death! The set's a memorial of sorts, and it compiles some important sides from the mid 40s, recorded for Savoy – material that really helped set the stage for bop at the time, even though most folks were still just finding a name for the form. There's some really standout elements here – like a handful of tracks that feature sparkling arrangements from Gil Fuller, with Sonny Stitt on alto and Morris Lane on tenor – on titles that include "Boppin A Riff (parts 1 & 2)", "Fat Boy (parts 1 & 2)", and "Webb City (parts 1 & 2)". The moody singer Kay Penton makes an appearance on a few other great cuts – "Bebop Carroll", "Gone With The Wind", "The Tadd Walk", and "That Someone Must Be You". And other numbers feature Kenny Dorham on trumpet and Sonny Stitt on alto – on titles that include "Good Kick" and "Serenade To A Square". CD

A really well done memorial to the (then) recently-departed Charlie Parker – cut with an unusual lineup that features Cecil Payne on baritone sax, Phil Woods on alto, and Frank Socolow on tenor – all working through long, laidback takes of 4 of Bird's best known compositions! There's a really relaxed feel to the record that's totally great – and the players aren't so much aping the sound of Charlie Parker's work, as they are working in the newer freedoms allows by it – stretching out in freely creative lines that never fail to please, and working here with a rhythm section that includes Duke Jordan on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The album was recorded live at the Five Spot – and titles include "Parker's Mood", "Steeplechase", "Buzzy", and "Scrapple From The Apple". CD

A late date for Woody Shaw, but a great one too – a bit more straightforward than some of his more righteous albums of the 70s, but still proof that Shaw is easily one of the greatest trumpeters of his generation! The album's got a laidback sort of feel, and features a fair bit of familiar standards – but Woody and the group do plenty to transform them, especially on the solo spots. Shaw's leading a quintet here – with Steve Turre on trombone, Kirk Lightsey on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, and Carl Allen on drums – and titles include "Steve's Blues", "Dat Dere", "Imagination", "If I Were A Bell", "You & The Night & The Music", and "Stormy Weather".

The set brings together 16 tracks that were only ever issued on 78s – and which really haven't been reissued properly since this mid 80s album – complete with great notes and session information. Titles include "Hot Rod", "Crossroads", "Hound's Tooth", "Hometown", "Cornbread", "Swing Shift", "Rice & Red Beans", and "Rent Party". CD

Phil UrsoPhilosophy Of Urso ... LP
Savoy, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $39.99
One of the few albums ever issued as a leader by Phil Urso – a bright young tenor star in the 50s, known for his work with Chet Baker and Stan Getz! The album features Urso in 3 different settings – one with Getz alumni that include Bob Brookmeyer and Horace Silver, grooving hard on boppish tunes that include "Chik-eta", "Ozzie's Ode", and "Wizzards Gizzards". The next batch features a quartet with Walter Bishop Jr on piano, and more ballad-oriented tunes that include "Three Little Words", "She's Funny That Way", and "Little Pres". Last up are five tracks that are pretty darn cool – Urso blowing with only organ accompaniment from Bobby Banks! This mixture of just tenor and organ is pretty haunting, and a real surprise to our ears, given Urso's other sessions. Titles include "Easy Out", "Lush Tush", and "Where Or When".

Tremendous tenor work from the mid 40s – a side each of Savoy singles done by Charlie Ventura and Charlie Kennedy, packaged here in a mid 50s album! Kennedy's featured on side one – playing with a small combo that includes Johnny Guarnieri on piano, and B DeArango on guitar – in a relaxed, open mode that's certainly swing-based, but shows some modern jazz inflections on the solos. Side two is even tighter – with Ventura hitting on all burners in a quartet with Arnold Ross on piano and Specs Powell on drums – playing with the fire that made him a strong link between many sides of the jazz spectrum at the time! Kennedy titles include "I'll See You In My Dreams", "Whispering", "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", and "I Can't Get Started" – and Ventura numbers include "Jackpot", "Big Deal", "Dark Eyes", and "Charlie Comes On".

Savoy, 1956. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest of the 50s Savoy "Opus" albums – and a loosely-done blowing session that's got a really unique feel! Instead of piano, the session features two guitarists – Kenny Burrell in lead and handling solos, and Freddie Greene comping in the background in a nicely rhythmic mode. Frank Wess plays flute throughout, and the mix of flute and two guitars is really wonderful – especially considering that the only other support they get here is from the bass of Eddie Jones and drums of Kenny Clarke. Tracks are all nice and long, and titles include "Wess Side", "East Wind", "Southern Exposure", and "Kansas City Side". CD

One of those classic 50s sessions in which a bunch of Count Basie players split off from the bigger group and do some great small combo work on their own! The album is leader-less in its billing – but only because all the players are so well tuned to each other, and have such a simpatico relationship that there's no need for egos to drive the record. Tracks are longish and more open than any Basie setting – and players include Frank Wess on flute and tenor, Kenny Burrell on solo guitar, Freddie Green on rhythm guitar, and Joe Newman on trumpet. Wess' solos are often out in the lead, but Burrell and Newman also get in some nice licks – and titles include "Pin Up", "Playboy", "Miss Blues", and "Blues For A Playmate". LP, Vinyl record album

The set features the late great trumpeter leading 3 different small groups – all top-shelf lineups, with players that include Charlie Rouse or Dexter Gordon on tenor, Tadd Dameron or Al Haig on piano, and Art Blakey on drums! The recordings have the raw bebop energy that characterized the best of these Savoy sessions, but Navarro's playing adds touches of lyricism not usually heard on recordings like these. Certainly one of the albums that will convince you why Fats was so great – with the tracks "Barry's Bop", "Dextrose", "Stealing Trash", and "Hollerin' & Screamin". CD

A hip one from the great AK Salim – one of his rare sides cut for Savoy during the late 50s, a swirling batch of soulful jazz tracks, featuring an octet that includes Kenny Dorham, Johnny Griffin, Pepper Adams, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, Max Roach, and Chino Pozo. Salim had a real talent for taking a group like this and making them swing hard – kind of in the way that Slide Hampton did on his early 60s sides for Atlantic, and with a similar soulful bent. The soloists break out of the group strongly on the best cuts – and all tunes are over five minutes long, with ample solo space. Titles include "Blu Binsky", "RU12", "Shirley Ray", "Ba Lu Ee Du", and "Pretty For The People". CD also features 2 alternate takes – never issued before! CD

Savoy, 1944/1945. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few albums issued under the name of bassist Slam Stewart – and a great testament to the genius of the player on his instrument in the days after his work with Slim Gaillard! The style here is much straighter jazz than Slam's work with Slim – and the numbers are mostly in a trio mode, but often feature a bit of vocals from Slam while he plays – the "singin" in the title, done in a way that often dips nicely alongside the bass. Stewart also bows the bass a bit too – giving it a melodic solo quality that's almost like a horn at times – slightly raspy, and with a nice sense of soul. Most the titles feature Johnny Guarnieri on piano and Sammy Weiss on drums – but two include Erroll Garner on piano, Mike Bryan on guitar, and Hal West on drums. Titles include "Bowin Swingin Slam", "Deuces Wild", "Deuces Mild", "New Excercise in Swing", "Hangover", "Gliss Me Again", "Firebird", and "Dark Eyesky".

Joe's not tied up in gimmicks or larger groups here – and he really sparkles in the company of a quartet that features Hank Jones on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – players that really match Wilder's inherent sense of soul and lyricism, as he waxes some beautiful solos on the set. There's a nice sort of blueness in Joe's tone, but one that's never too forced or cliched – and titles include "Mad About The Boy", "Six Bit Blues", "Darn That Dream", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "My Heart Stood Still".
