Serge ChaloffBlue Serge ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A real classic in the canon of American postwar jazz – one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by Boston baritone player Serge Chaloff – one of a handful of musicians who really helped move the instrument forward in jazz, and help it take a rightful place next to the expressiveness of the tenor and alto sax! Even though he hardly got a chance to record, Serge was a hell of a player, and one who has both the rich tone of the instrument completely in hand, while also able to move with the fluidity of a much leaner horn – a quality that's augmented here by the fantastic rhythm work from Sonny Clark on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The set's a treasure through and through – from the cool cover image, to the great music within – served up on tunes that include "How About You", "Handful Of Stars", "The Goof & I", "Susie's Blues", and "All The Things You Are".

Serge ChaloffBoston Blow-Up! ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few key recordings issued by baritone saxophonist Serge Chaloff before his untimely early death – a tremendous little record that really helped redefine the place of his instrument in jazz! The album is one of a number produced by Stan Kenton for Capitol at the time, but it's far from the cooler jazz outings of other "Kenton Presents" sessions – a real Boston Blow up that has Serge standing starkly out front on the baritone, hitting some tremendous notes that show a command and dexterity on his instrument that few other players could match! Also noteworthy is the presence of the great Boots Mussulli on alto sax – a sharp-edge player with a lot of Charlie Mariano touches, and an artist who's rarely heard in a setting so stripped-down as this. Other artists include Herb Pomeroy on trumpet, Ray Santisi on piano, and Jimmy Zitano on drums – and titles include the original numbers "Kip", "Unison", "Bob The Robin", and "Sergical" – plus versions of "What's New", "Yesterday's Gardenias", and Jaki Byard's "Diane's Melody".

Four Brothers (Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, etc)Together Again (French pressing) ... LP
Vik/RCA (France), 1957. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
How many different iterations of the "Four Brothers" were there? We don't know, but as near as we can tell, this grouping might most resemble the "original", with four West coast heavies joining forces for a swinging side. Originally making up the sax section of Woody Herman's Thundering Herd, Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Herbie Steward and Serge Chaloff are the brothers, and they're joined by fellow Herman alum Buddy Jones, plus Elliot Lawrence and Don Lamond in the rhythm section on this side for Vik. As you'd expect, the numbers are all West coast gems, by the likes of Cohn, Sims, Jimmy Giuffre, Gerry Mulligan and Manny Albam amongst others, and featuring the brothers blowing in a remarkably spry manner for such a heavyweight lineup. 10 tracks in all: "Four And One More", "So Blue", "The Swinging Door", 'Four In Hand", "A Quick One", 'Four Brothers", "Ten Years Later", "The Pretty One", "Aged In Wood" and "Here We Go Again". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light surface wear and small sticker remnants.)

Lars GullinLars Gullin Vol 1 – With Chet Baker – 1955/1956 ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
The first entry in this wonderful series that documents the early genius of baritone saxophonist Lars Gullin – a player on the Swedish scene of the postwar years, but one who also got plenty of attention on our shores – thanks to key issues of his records by Emarcy/Mercury in the 50s! Lars has a wonderful tone on his instrument – and is one of a handful of players in his generation who were taking the instrument away from larger ensembles, and using it as a setting for sublime solo work in small groups – a quality that puts Gullin right alongside American greats of the time on the instrument, like Gerry Mulligan, Pepper Adams, or Serge Chaloff! Lars is probably more like the latter two here – swinging with some nice bop inclinations – on tracks recorded with a number of different combos, including four that have trumpeter Chet Baker joining in with Gullin. Titles include "Cool Blues", "Lars Meets Jeff", "Igloo", "Danny's Dream", "All Of Me", "Ma", "Perntz", "Lover Man", "Brash", "Fedja", and "I'll Remember April". CD

Jay Migliori & Dick TwardzikJazz Workshop Quintet – Harvard WHRB Session ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1954. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A rare live set from the Boston scene of the postwar years – a record that's not just noteworthy for the work of the great Dick Twardzik on piano, a player most folks know from his recordings with Chet Baker before he passed away in 1955 – but also some great vibes from Johnny Rae, an excellent musician who only made a handful of records in the 50s himself! And of course, there's also the mighty Jay Migliori – a tenorist who blows with the kind of sharp, modern tone that marks him as a key part of his city's scene – a voice on his instrument that's every bit as personal and revolutionary as the changes that Charlie Mariano was bringing to the alto, or Serge Chaloff to the baritone! The material here is from a well-recorded, never-issued radio broadcast for a Harvard station in 1954, and it's as essential as any studio session might have been by the group – which also includes Jack Carter on bass and Bob Atcheson on drums. Titles include "Fatty", "Round Midnight", "Get Happy", "Ryan's Love", "Chanticleer", and "Willow Weep For Me". CD
