Slim GaillardSlim Gaillard Rides Again! ... LP
Dot, 1959. Very Good ... $9.99
Some of the best material Slim Gaillard ever recorded! Although he's best known for his Verve work, and for his early 40s sessions in LA – these 1959 recordings for Dot have Slim hitting a groove that's far tighter than usual, with a better jazz influence, and a much freer approach to singing than his usual stock style. There's a wonderful version of "How High The Moon" that's got crazy guitar, and wild lyrics from Slim about life on the moon. Other nice cuts include "Sukiyaka Cha Cha", "Chicken Rhythm", "Slim's Cee", "Lady Be Good", and "Thunderbird". If you've ever wondered why people think Slim is so great, check this one out – and you'll flip! LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has partially split seams and some aging.)

✨✧ Slim GaillardGroove Juice – The Norman Granz Recordings & More ... CD
Verve, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic material from the great Slim Gaillard – one of the most unique singers of all time, and a key link between jazz and the growing wave of R&B in the postwar years! Long before singers like Roy Brown, Wynonie Harris, Joe Turner, and others started making offbeat, uptempo material for indie labels like King and Atlantic – the great Slim Gaillard was cooking up his own unique brew on the LA scene – a small combo approach, which allowed for lots of flexibility – both in the stripped-down style of rhythm, and Slim's completely amazing vocal technique – which was often filled with slang, jive, and lots of sly jokes too! Gaillard started out years before Norman Granz came into his own as a record producer – but, like so many of his generation that Granz worked with, Gaillard really hit a new level on the material you'll hear here – a good deal of which we'd not heard on other collections. The set begins with a fantastic 12 minute "Opera In Vout (Groove Juice Symphony)" – from a Jazz At The Philharmonic performance – then rolls into 16 more rare singles recorded for MGM – including "Boip Boip", "Money Money Money", "The Hogan Song", "Down By The Station", "Mom's In The Kitchen But We've Got Pop On Ice", "Organ Oreenne", "Little Red Riding Woods", "Bongo Cito", and "When Banana Skins Are Falling". Next are 28 more tracks that were issued on Mercury, Clef, and Verve Records – loads of Slim Gaillard classics, including "Taxpayer's Blues", "Yo Yo Yo", "Chicken Rhythm", "Potatoe Chips", "I Know What To Do", "You Goofed", "Oh Lady Be Good", "Genius", "Babalu Oreeney", "Sabroso", "Laughing In Rhythm", "Gomen Nasai", and "Go Man Go". 2CD set also features 9 more bonus alternate takes – and some great notes too!

VariousBlack California Vol 2 ... LP
Savoy, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
A great compilation – despite the title – one that features west coast recordings made by Savoy, showing the less "cool jazz" side of the LA scene in the late 40s and early 50s! There's some excellent material on here not available elsewhere – especially some great bop groovers in the Central Ave kind of mode. The album's got 4 tracks by Slim Gaillard – "The Jam Man", "Slim's Riff", "I'm Confessin'" and "Oxydol Highball" plus "Blow Blow Blow" by the Wardell Gray All-Stars, 3 takes each of "Blues A La Russ" and "Wake Up Old Maid" by Russell Jacquet, 'What Is This Thing Called Love" by Wild Bill Moore and Gene Montgomery, "Strollin'", "Sonor", "Blues Mood", "Skoot" and "I've Lost Your Love" by a KennY Clarke Sextet that features Milty Jackson and Gerald Wiggins and 4 numbers from Helen Humes. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a large corner cut and a promo sticker.)

✨✧ Four Shades Of RhythmBartender Knock Me A Zombie (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Ace/Sensation (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A romping little groove from the Detroit scene of the postwar years – a mix of jump blues and jazz, with a catchy, quirky vocal that's a bit like Slim Gaillard at his best! The tune's a jiving little track – and has a great echoey guitar line in the middle – between very catchy choruses by the lead singer, who keeps calling out to a bartender – who also answers back! 7-inch, Vinyl record
