Dexter Gordon & Slide HamptonDay In Copenhagen (180 gram pressing) ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 23.99
A tremendous European meeting of tenorist Dexter Gordon and trombonist Slide Hampton – brought together in this impeccable sextet session for MPS – a real standout in the label's straight jazz catalog over the years! By the time of the set, Gordon had been working heavily in Europe, especially Copenhagen – a locale where he was given ample freedom to stretch out and really explore his tone and phrasing. Hampton had also kicked around the continent a fair bit too, but in a tighter format, doing arrangements for others and working in bigger groups – and it's actually his careful touch that really helps shape the sound of the set – by bringing Gordon's groove into a focus more strongly than before, and reminding us that Dex was a great group player when he wanted to be! The frontline features Gordon's tenor, Hampton's trombone, and the trumpet of Dizzy Reece – often stating the heads in a fluidly soulful way, then breaking out nicely with individual voices – very much in the best Blue Note mode. Rhythm is by the trio of Kenny Drew on piano, Art Taylor on drums, and Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass – and titles include 3 excellent originals by Hampton – "A New Thing", "My Blues", and "A Day In Vienna" – plus a wicked almost-Lee Morgan-esque take on "What's New", and versions of "Shadow Of Your Smile" and "You Don't Know What Love Is".

Slide HamptonSister Salvation ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of Slide Hampton's first albums – and a massively hard-wailing set that will make any doubters sit up and take notice! The set really packs a punch – as Slide leads a hip group that features Freddie Hubbard, Richard Williams, Bernard McKinney, and George Coleman through some tightly woven arrangements that manage to swing with the grace of small combo work, yet wail with the intensity of a big band. Great solos pop out all over the set – and there's a soul jazz groove that makes the album sound like a classic Prestige session. Titles include "Asseveration", "Hi Fly", "Sister Salvation", and "A Little Night Music". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono red and purple label pressing with deep groove. Includes the Atlantic inner sleeve. Cover has light wear, aging, gloss separation along the top seam, a 5-inch center split with some clear tape at the bottom seam, and a light stain on back.)

Slide HamptonWorld Of Trombones ... CD
1201 Music, 1979. Used ... $9.99
The title's no lie, as Slide Hampton's working here with a very trombone-heavy group – a lineup that features 8 other players on the instrument - including Clifford Adams, Curtis Fuller, Papo Vasquez, Steve Turre, and Earl McIntyre! The only other music in the group is from the trio of Albert Dailey on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, and Leroy Williams on drums – and Hampton's deft arranging skills really hone the larger group of players into a wonderful groove – one that still allows a fair bit of solo space, but which never lets things get cliched in a too-brassy sort of way. There's a leanness here that's really surprising, and at many points the rhythm section seems to drop out and let the trombones handle most of the sound in the set. Titles include "Con Alma", "Impressions", "Chorale", "Lester Leaps In", and "Lament". CD

CBS Jazz All StarsMontreux Summit Vol 1 ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
A really amazing little record – way more than usual for this sort of live recording – given that it features some very unique performances together by artists we've never heard on the same stage otherwise! The premise is simple, but wonderfully effective – in that the album brings together some of the leading lights of the Columbia/CBS jazz stable at the time – a massive lineup of talent from a few key generations in jazz, sounding surprisingly great hear together! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include a brilliant version of "Infant Eyes" by a quartet with Stan Getz on tenor and Bob James on piano; "Fried Bananas" with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and George Duke on piano; "Bahama Mama" with Bob James on keyboards, Bobbi Humphrey on flute, Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitars, and Billy Cobham on drums – and the long jam session tracks "Montreux Summit", "Blues March", and "Andromeda" – which feature work from most of the players above, all working in one large group – plus added flute from Hubert Laws and Thijs Van Leer, percussion from Ralph Maconald, and bass from Alphonso Johnson.

ContinuumMad About Tadd ... LP
Quicksilver, 1983. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of those records that really takes you by surprise – a set that doesn't look like much on the front, but which opens up immediately the minute you drop it on the turntable – with a sense of soul and swing that really hold on throughout! The group's a great one – a quintet with Jimmy Heath on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Kenny Barron on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all seasoned players working together here on a set of Tadd Dameron tunes, but inflected with a nice early 80s sense of soul – almost a more relaxed Muse Records vibe that really makes the album way more than just another reading of Dameron's classics. Titles include "Lady Bird", "Squirrel", "The Scene Is Clean", "Sid's Delight", and "Nearness". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing on PAJ. Cover has some wear and aging.)

Maynard FergusonTrumpet Rhapsody (PA USA) ... LP
PA USA, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The hard wailing trumpet of Maynard Ferguson gets a perfect showcase on this obscure MPS session from the 60s – a record that offers up a nice bridge between his earlier albums on Roulette, and his more famous funk sides for Columbia! The sound here is mostly acoustic, but definitely hard-grooving – in ways that are similar to other MPS big band projects of the period, such as records by Gustav Brom, or the Clarke Boland Big Band! Like the latter, there's a great ensemble working with Maynard here – and even though he's the main soloist, the sense of the larger ensemble always helps shape the sound nicely. Deiter Reith plays piano on the date – and arrangements are by Slide Hampton, Don Sebesky, Bill Holman, Willie Maiden, and Mike Abene – on cuts that include a great reading of Slide Hampton's "Got The Spirit", plus the tracks "Knarf", "Ole", "Dancing Nitely", and "Whisper Not". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing on PA USA. Cover has ring and edge wear and a name in marker on back.)

✨✧ Dizzy Gillespie & The United Nations OrchestraDizzy Gillespie & The United Nations Orchestra – Live At The Royal Festival Hall, London ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $16.99 About November 17, 2021
Later live work from Dizzy Gillespie – working in London here with a very hip ensemble! We're not entirely sure of the date, but given the skinny ties on a few of the players, we're guessing it's from that 80s stretch when Dizzy was still going strong – working in a great mix of Latin and bop modes that's always kept fresh through his creative energies! Slide Hampton's on trombone – and also wrote most of the arrangements – and other players include Arturo Sandoval on trumpet, Paquito D'Rivera on reeds, James Moody on sax and flute, Airto on percussion, and Danilo Perez on vocals – and Flora Purim also joins the group on vocals for a few numbers. Titles include "Kush", "Tanga", "Dizzy Shells", "Night In Tunisia", "Tin Tin Deo", "Seresta", and "Samba For Carmen". CD

Dexter GordonSophisticated Giant ... CD
Columbia, 1977. Used ... $7.99
A really wonderful album from Dexter Gordon's later years at Columbia – and a rare session that pairs larger arrangements with his soulful voice on the tenor and soprano saxophone! Although other players worked often in this mode, the record may well be the only one of its type for Dexter – but that doesn't stop it from being a standout treasure that lets us hear a whole new side of his talents. Slide Hampton handled the arrangements, and he really works some magic with players that include Woody Shaw, Benny Bailey, Frank Wess, and Bobby Hutcherson – using their best talents to create richly chromatic backdrops for Dex's solos. A few of the players step out on their own lines on longer tracks, and titles include "Fried Bananas", "You're Blase", "Insensatez", "Moontrane", and "Laura". CD

Grover Washington JrAll My Tomorrows ... CD
Columbia, 1994. Used ... $3.99
An overlooked gem from reedman Grover Washington – recorded in his later years, but a set that's actually got more of an acoustic style overall – one that goes back to the roots farther than any of Grover's fusion records! Washington's a great straight player in this setting – filled with soul on tenor and soprano sax – and working with top-shelf small group players like Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Hank Jones on piano, Bobby Watson on alto, and Robin Eubanks on trombone. Guitarist Romero Lumbambo arranged one great Brazilian-tinged number – and other arrangements are by Grover, Larry Willis, Slide Hampton, and Freddy Cole – who sings on two tracks too. Titles include "E Preciso Perdoar", "Happenstance", "All My Tomorrows", "Nature Boy", "Flamingo", and "Estate". CD

Grover Washington JrAll My Tomorrows/Soulful Strut/Breath Of Heaven ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1994/1996/1997. New Copy 3CDs ... $11.99 16.99
A trio of 90s albums from Grover Washington! All My Tomorrows is an overlooked gem from reedman Grover – recorded in his later years, but a set that's actually got more of an acoustic style overall – one that goes back to the roots farther than any of Grover's fusion records! Washington's a great straight player in this setting – filled with soul on tenor and soprano sax – and working with top-shelf small group players like Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Hank Jones on piano, Bobby Watson on alto, and Robin Eubanks on trombone. Guitarist Romero Lumbambo arranged one great Brazilian-tinged number – and other arrangements are by Grover, Larry Willis, Slide Hampton, and Freddy Cole – who sings on two tracks too. Titles include "E Preciso Perdoar", "Happenstance", "All My Tomorrows", "Nature Boy", "Flamingo", and "Estate". Soulful Strut is bouncy soul from Grover Washington – a set that returns to his earlier roots in a space between soulful fusion and R&B! The slinky Washington soprano sax gets plenty of space in this set – blown with those seductive notes that always made Grover one of the most distinctive players on the instrument – and the backings often have this gentle R&B groove that's even stronger on the few cuts here with vocals. Titles include "Soulful Strut", "Bordertown", "Village Groove", "I Can Count The Times", "Headman's Hunt", and "Can You Stop The Rain". Breath Of Heaven is a holiday record from Grover Washington – but one that's got a fair bit more to offer than just the usual Christmas tunes! The set mixes older favorites and lesser-known numbers – all done in that soulful fusion style that Washington brought to his records from other seasons of the years – set up here with the leader on alto, tenor, and soprano sax – amidst arrangements from vibist Joe Lock, and keyboardist Donald Robinson, and guitarist Hiram Bullock – all of whom play on the record. Lisa Fischer sings on one number, but most of the record is instrumental – and titles include "Breath Of Heaven", "The Magi's Song/A Child Is Born", "I Wonder As I Wonder", "Christmas Time Is Here", "The Love In His Infant Eyes", and "Christmas Day Chant".

Randy WestonDestry Rides Again ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good- ... $29.99
One of the strangest Randy Weston albums you'll ever see – but a great one too! Here, the great modernist pianist/composer plays selections from the hit musical Destry Rides Again – an unusual choice, but one that he makes all his own thanks to some really inventive touches. Randy's working here with his trio (Elvin Jones on drums and Peck Morrison on bass), plus a 4 trombone lineup that includes Melba Liston, Frank Rehak, Slide Hampton, and Bennie Green (all hip players in their own right!) Liston handles the arrangements, as with many other Weston sessions – and the tracks have a strangely off-kilter sound that actually makes the hokey material sound pretty darn great! Weston's playing is especially nice, and the strange tones that issue from the keyboard are certainly not the stuff that Harold Rome imagined when composing this score – although his notes on the back seem to indicate his favorable acceptance of the material. Titles include "We're Ladies", "I Say Hello", "Once Knew A Fella", and "That Ring On The Finger". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has half split seams and spine, some wear and aging, and is lightly stained at the right side.)

James WilliamsFlying Colors ... CD
Zim/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
An early date from pianist James Williams – one that has him opening up in a very hip, soulful 70s mode – on both acoustic and electric piano! If you only know Williams from later years, when his phrasing became a bit more "classic", you'll really be surprised at the open flow of this set – as it's a whole group effort, with really wonderful work from Bill Easley on alto and flute, Bill Pierce on soprano and tenor, and Slide Hampton on trombone! Rhythm is from James Baker on drums, and Sylvester Sample on electric bass – the latter of which adds a nice current of warmth – and titles include "Stretching", "Soulful Bill", "Flying Colors", and "1977 AD".
