Stan GetzBossas & Ballads – The Lost Sessions ... CD
Verve, 1989. Used ... $4.99
A lost late session by Stan Getz – and one of his greatest recordings of the 80s! The album's got the simple elegance of some of his best Verve work – with a group that features Stan on tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The combination of Barron and Getz is magical – with a laidback soulfulness that takes us back to the days of Sweet Rain, Voices, and some of our favorite Getz sessions from the 60s. Tracks are all quite long – most well over 7 minutes – with a simple, unfettered approach that offers Stan in all his lyrical beauty. Recorded in 1989 – but oddly never issued until now – and a real treasure all the way through! Titles include "Beatrice", "Spiral", "Sunshow", "Joanne Julia", "Soul Eyes", and "El Sueno". CD

Stan GetzDynasty ... LP
Verve, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A great lost album from Stan Getz! The record features Stan in a totally new setting, playing with some relatively unfamiliar French talents – Eddie Louiss on organ, Rene Thomas on guitar, and Bernard Lubat on drums. Louiss is incredible, and has a free spacey sound that recalls Larry Young – which works perfectly with Getz's post-Coltrane explorations here. The whole album's a triumph, and a tribute to Stan's never-ending quest for new sounds, despite the fact that labels always wanted him to reproduce his bigger hits. Titles include "Our Kind Of Sabi", "Song For Martine", "Invitation", and "Dum Dum". All tracks are long, and the album's a delightful meeting of European jazz and masterful solo talents!

Stan GetzFocus ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1961. Used ... $12.99
Oft-overlooked album that's actually one of Getz's most far-reaching of the 60s! Recorded in the year before he got caught up in his bossa pop frenzy, the record shows Getz as a darkly toned modernist, weaving out complex solos over the album's extended suite "Focus", written and arranged by the great Eddie Sauter, with whom Stan worked on the Mickey One soundtrack. The album's a surprisingly refreshing one, and shows yet another complex side of Getz's endlessly compelling career. Titles include "I'm Late, I'm Late", "I Remember When", "Pan", "Her", "Night Rider", and "Once Upon A Time", plus bonus single versions of "I'm Late, I'm Late" and "I Remember When"! CD

Stan GetzGetz At The Gate – The Stan Getz Quartet Live At The Village Gate 1961 ... CD
Verve, 1961. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
A fantastic lost slice of work from Stan Getz – one that features an early 60s group that was barely recorded at all, and which really shows Getz stretching out right before his bossa nova years! The quartet features a very young Steve Kuhn on piano, the great Roy Haynes on drums, and John Neves on bass – a lineup that has only been featured on Stan's album with trombonist Bob Brookmeyer from the same year – but which sounds very different here without a second horn player in the lead! The tracks are long, and very open – and Stan's hitting modes that are a lot more like the sounds he'd reach during his Sweet Rain years, with the group that included Chick Corea – making this record a key bridge backwards, showing what might have happened to early 60s Getz, had the bossa nova recordings not dominated that time. Stan's tone is fantastic – and the solos are very open and fluid, given plenty of inspiration by Kuhn's piano, which is still yet to find its later voice, but which definitely has the right sense of space. Haynes and Neves are wonderful too – especially the latter, who's got this tone that's well-placed, but never dominating – a great complement to Roy's always-creative sense of rhythm. The whole thing's a delight – as essential an addition to Stan's catalog as the discovery of the Nobody Else But Me album in the CD era. Titles include "Wildwood", "Impressions", "Airegin", "Blues", "Woody N You", "Where Do You Go", "Yesterday's Gardenias", "It's You Or No One", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

Stan GetzLive In Dusseldorf 1960 ... LP
Jazz Line (Germany), 1960. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99
A gem of an unreleased live performance from the mighty Stan Getz – working here in a quartet that ties together his time on both the Swedish and American scenes of the 50s! The group is great – with Jan Johansson on piano, still swinging, but clearly a budding modernist too, especially when he hits his solos – stepping out with superb rhythm from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums, both players who were becoming very familiar with the European scene at the time! The tunes are all familiar numbers, but really opened up strongly by the solos – and Stan's got that superbly edgey tone he was starting to dip into at the time – right up there with the few other European live dates he recorded in the same year. Titles include "Pernod", "The Thrill Is Gone", "Woody N You", and "Out Of Nowhere" – plus a bonus alternate of "Out Of Nowhere". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzOut Of Nowhere – Dear Old Stan Getz Vol 2 ... LP
Marshmallow (Japan), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $44.99
Great overseas material from Stan Getz – tracks that echo some of his work on the Stan Getz At Large album from Sweden, but which also take off nicely in other directions as well! The first half of the set features Stan blowing tenor with piano from Swedish genius Jan Johansson, plus rhythm from the Oscar Peterson team of Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums! The set's got an unusual balance that sets it apart from even other Getz albums of the time – a vibe that might have made it a special Verve album, had it gotten released at the time – recorded beautifully with a clarity that matches any of Stan's studio albums too! Tracks are nice and long, with wonderfully fluid tenor lines from Getz – and titles include "Land's End", "Woody N You", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", and "I Remember Clifford". Next are two tracks recorded in Stockholm in 1958 - with Oscar Peterson on piano and Herb Ellis on guitar – on "Out Of Nowhere" and "It Never Entered My Mind". Last are three numbers recorded in Copenhagen in 1959 – with Johansson on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Joe Harris on drums – on "Laverne Walk", "I Remember Clifford", and "Stuffy".

A lost chapter in the Stan Getz sound of the 60s – an album that features Stan blowing in front of some beautiful backdrops set by Lalo Schifrin and Claus Ogerman! The sound is super mellow – dreamy, but never sleepy – with Stan blowing in these soulful, magical, exploratory lines that sweep and swirl with his best 60s work. The sound is incredible – a whole new level of genius to a player who'd already recorded in so many other strong modes at the time – and titles include "Sleeping Bee", "Nitetime Street", "Early Autumn", "Charade", "Love", and "Reflections".

One of Stan's last truly great albums – a wonderful concert recorded in Copenhagen in 1987, with his late quartet that featured Kenny Barron on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The soulful searching quality of the players is right in line with Stan's unfettered tone at the time – a honing down of his post-Coltrane wail, into more of lyrical one, with slight modal touches. All tracks are very long – and titles include "Voyage", "I Remember You", "I Love You", and "On Green Dolphin Street". CD

Verve, 1957. Used ... $4.99
A great little session – and a meeting that was one of the best things to happen to the Oscar Peterson trio during the 50s! Stan's tone fits perfectly with the group here – and his playing next to the guitar of Herb Ellis recalls many of the fine strengths of the early 50s Getz sides with Jimmy Raney – although somehow coming across with even more depth and imagination here – probably a result of the more sophisticated approach to productions handled by Verve! Peterson's no slouch, either – but Stan's the man who really makes the session sparkle – as you'll hear on tunes that include "Tour's End", "Bronx Blues", "I Was Doing All Right", and "I'm Glad There's You".

Stan GetzStan Getz In Stockholm ... LP
Verve, 1955. Near Mint- ... $43.99
Stan Getz makes a key musical trip to Sweden – to showcase his affection for a jazz scene that had been growing strongly in the postwar years – often in directions that were similar to Stan's own sound at the time! The session is one of the first to pair Stan's tenor with a Swedish group – in this case the bass of Gunnar Johnson, drums of Anders Burman, and piano of Bengt Hallberg – the last of which brings sharper, more angular style to the music than some of Stan's accompanists on earlier American dates – pointing the way towards new experiments to come in his music! Hallberg really helps break the mold from other Getz Verve sessions of the period – and the relaxed, open-ended recording style of the date is almost an equal showcase for his talents as it is for Stan's! Titles include "Indiana", "Get Happy", "I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me", "Everything Happens To Me", "Without A Song", and "I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance With You".

Dragon (Sweden), Late 50s. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
We can never get enough Stan Getz – especially when it's a record like this, which offers up some previously-overlooked sides of his career! Stan spent plenty of time on the Swedish scene in the late 50s – even managed to pick up a bride in the process – and while there, he really gelled wonderfully with the best players of the time – not just local modernists, who were a perfect fit for his music, but also trumpeter Benny Bailey, who was working on the Scandinavian scene too! This 2CD set is a massive document of Stan's best work in Sweden during these years – and it features studio, radio, and live performance material – with players who include Benny Bailey on trumpet, Ake Persson on trombone, Lars Gullin on baritone, Erik Norstrom on tenor, and both Bengt Hallberg and Jan Johansson on piano. Tunes follow a bit of the Verve Records approach used with Stan in the 50s – with arrangements by Persson, Hallberg, and Gullin on some numbers – and titles include "Topsy", "Celebrating", "Cabin In The Sky", "Speak Low", "Like Someone In Love", "Jordu", "Gold Rush", "Night In Tunisia", "Just A Child", "Ah Moore", and "Lover Come Back To Me".

Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
A killer record from the late 50s – and one that hints at all the sides Stan would take in later years: his bossa sides, his vibes quartet with Gary Burton, and the playful lyricism of his recordings with Chick Corea. The set was recorded in San Francisco, when Stan had that great bassist Scott LaFaro in his group, and when he was brought into the studio by Fantasy to meet with local talents like Cal Tjader, Eddie Duran, and Vince Guaraldi. Billy Higgins is also added on drums, giving the set a lively songlike sound that's just great. The group works incredibly well together, and it's a shame they only really gelled for this rare non-Verve session. Titles include "Big Bear", "Crow's Nest", and "Ginza Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1983. Used ... $8.99
A lovely later recording from Stan Getz – very spare and spacious, and recorded with a casual approach that's quite striking, and really fresh! The album features Stan playing alongside pianist Albert Dailey – with no other rhythm accompaniment, just piano and tenor sax. The tunes are mostly familiar numbers, played in a relaxed, improvised mode that makes the whole thing feel like you're getting a lucky glimpse of Stan and Albert playing together in an after hours session or rehearsal. There's a bit of roughness in the recording, but given the depth of soul and color from both players, that quality also emerges as an honest humanity that only serves to make the recording more compelling! Titles include "Tune Up", "A Child Is Born", "Confirmation", "Round Midnight", and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most". CD

Stan Getz & Astrud GilbertoGetz Au Go Go ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible lineup that made for some wonderfully moody sounds! The vibes/tenor approach was a high point in Getz's career – especially as the young Burton could create these beautiful washes of sound that were a perfect counterpoint to Getz's breathy playing. And although Astrud Gilberto is thrown into the mix here to give the album a bit of bossa appeal – vocals on 6 titles that include "Corovado", "Eu E Voce", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "One Note Samba", "Only Trust Your Heart", and "The Telephone Song" – there's also 4 more tracks that are all instrumental, and which show the Getz/Burton union in all of its glory! These tracks include "6 Nix Pix Flix", "The Singing Song", "Here's That Rainy Day", and "Summertime". And for reference, the rest of the group includes Gene Cherico on bass and Joe Hunt on drums – but on 3 tracks, Chuck Israels plays bass instead of Cherico, and on a few others, Helcio Milito plays drums instead of Hunt, and Kenny Burrell joins in on guitar.

The tenor of Stan Getz meets the baritone sax of Gerry Mulligan – and then they switch things around for half of the record, as Stan picks up the baritone and Mulligan takes on tenor! Gerry always seems to open up whole new sides of his playing when sharing the leader spotlight with another star – and here, in the company of Getz, he hits a shimmering, sparkling sound that's really great, and filled with feeling. Stan's wonderful too – very much in his best mid 50s Verve period – working in a groove that's deep and laidback, with a strong undercurrent of warmth – thanks to familiar rhythm backing from the trio of Lou Levy on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Stan Levey on drums. Titles include "Anything Goes", "Ballad", and "That Old Feeling". CD

Verve, 1963. Very Good ... $24.99
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with guitarist Joao Gilberto really pushed the format over the top – thanks in part to the vocals of Gilberto's lovely wife Astrud, who'd never sung in the studio before this famous recording! The record created a sound that was copied endlessly, and which catapulted Astrud to unbelievable fame worldwide – even though she was only included in the session at the last minute, because Joao couldn't sing in English – and the mix of Stan's tenor and Joao's guitar is wonderful – and backed throughout by this light, lilting bossa nova rhythms. Titles include the classic recording of "Girl From Ipanema", plus loads of other bossa classics like "Desafinado", "Cocovado", "O Grande Amor", and "Vivo Sonhando". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1964. Used ... $4.99
A very different record than the first collaboration between Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto – but that's also one of the things that makes it great! The album's more of a split LP than a shared one – as side one features a live performance from the great mid 60s Stan Getz quartet that featured Gary Burton on vibes – a wonderfully cool combo that was very under-documented on record, and which makes a key appearance here. The combination of Burton's vibes and Stan's tenor is pure genius – a sound that's got all the subtle hues and cool colors of the Getz bossa recordings, but which is quite different overall. Stan's tone is amazing on these tunes – and titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Tonight I Shall Sleep With A Smile On My Face", "Grandfather's Waltz", and "Stan's Blues". Side two features Joao Gilberto without Stan – playing in a very groovy trio that's more straight bossa than most of his other US recordings – cool small combo grooving that's totally great! The lineup features Gilberto on guitar and vocals, Keeter Betts on bass, and Helcio Milito on drums – all working in a sweetly grooving mode on titles that include "Samba De Minha Terra", "Meditation", "Bim Bom", "Rosa Moreno", and "O Pato". CD also features 5 bonus tracks with vocals from Astrud Gilberto – "It Might As Well Be Spring", "Only Trust Your Heart", "Corcovado", "Garota De Ipanema", and "Eu E Voce" – all from the Getz Au Go Go album.

One of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of long tracks, and nice laid-back solos by both Getz and Almeida – who's getting in some of his few jazz licks of the 60s here, working in a groove similar to that of his earlier sides with Bud Shank, but which sounds almost even better in the languid company of Getz. Cuts include "Outra Vez", "Winter Moon", "Maracatu-Too", and "Samba Da Sahra". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1963. Very Good ... $14.99
Hardly an "encore" of the first Stan Getz Jazz Samba album – as this set's got a slightly different feel, and lots of great elements that make it really unique! This time around, Brazilian musician Luiz Bonfa is on guitar – already a skilled proponent of the bossa by the time of the record, and arguably one of the few who really got it going back home in Rio. Stan's tenor sounds wonderful – as carefully and soufully blown as on the first set, but also with some new colors and tones too. Bonfa's wife Maria Toledo sings a bit on the record – hinting at Stan's work to come with Astrud Gilberto (this album was cut right before the Getz/Gilberto collaboration) – and the record also features added work on piano and guitar from the great Antonio Carlos Jobim – more than enough proof that the album's got a pure bossa pedigree! Titles include "Menina Flor", "Ebony Samba", "Saudade Vem Correndo", "Sambalero", "Samba De Duas Notas", and "Mania De Maria". LP, Vinyl record album

The remaining 4 tracks feature Stan and Al Cohn, working in a 1952 session with Geroge Wallington and Kai Winding – on some nice light boppish tracks that have that sweet smooth Getz tone firmly in place.

Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, & Sonny StittFor Musicians Only ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good ... $13.99
A tremendous little record – one that's greater even than the sum of its three mighty parts! Although we've always felt that some of the "all star" sets on Verve could sometimes be a bit too "easy", we're always very big fans of the few that feature strong performances from Dizzy Gillespie – as they have a tight bop groove that lets all the musicians find their right place, and solo in wonderful interplay with each other! Here, Dizz and Sonny Stitt provide the core of a group that also includes Stan Getz on tenor – and the three of them are given four nice long tracks to work through in a relaxed seamless fashion – moving openly and wonderfully over tunes that include "Dark Eyes", "We", and "Be Bop".

A great little album that's one of Getz's strongest from the period! The format for the album is in the mode of Hampton's early 50s Verve sides – long tracks, very open-ended, cut in a small group format that shows a different side than his more popular big band grooving. There's only 5 tracks on the album – and the focus is on solo work by Hamp and Getz, with rhythm by Lou Levy, Leroy Vinnegar, and Shelly Manne.

✨✧ Stan GetzLive In Dusseldorf 1960 ... CD
Jazz Line (Germany), 1960. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of an unreleased live performance from the mighty Stan Getz – working here in a quartet that ties together his time on both the Swedish and American scenes of the 50s! The group is great – with Jan Johansson on piano, still swinging, but clearly a budding modernist too, especially when he hits his solos – stepping out with superb rhythm from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums, both players who were becoming very familiar with the European scene at the time! The tunes are all familiar numbers, but really opened up strongly by the solos – and Stan's got that superbly edgey tone he was starting to dip into at the time – right up there with the few other European live dates he recorded in the same year. Titles include "Pernod", "The Thrill Is Gone", "Woody N You", and "Out Of Nowhere" – plus a bonus alternate of "Out Of Nowhere". CD

One of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire! The real credit here might almost go to guitarist Charlie Byrd – as Byrd was a big early proponent of bossa nova rhythms, and had already been experimenting with them on his records of the time – yet also gets a key extra "umph" here in the presence of Stan's tenor – a bold, rich, soulful sound that really helps give the music a lot of direction – in ways that still resonate strongly all these many years later! Getz is completely sublime – a master of tone and timing throughout – and perfectly fit to these tunes. Rhythms are mostly from Byrd's trio, augmented with some extra percussion – and titles include the classic "Desafinado", plus "E Luxo So", "Samba Dees Days", "Samba Triste", "O Pato", "Samba De Uma Nota So", and "Baia".

A fantastic rare album cut by Stan Getz in Europe! The session features Getz as the main soloist with the Clarke-Boland Big Band, and the overall sound is an incredible chapter in both the career of Getz and the CBBB. Given that most of the CBBB's soloists had a sharp angular sound, Getz's softer tenor approach is a real change for the group, and it's wonderful to hear the way that he floats around their driving arrangements – never getting lost in the mix, and instead adding whole new ranges of tones and color to their trademark sound. The set features 6 original compositions – including "Extravagances", "Escarmouches", "Provocations", and "Touchstone" – and it's packaged in a very nice fold-out cover! CD

Verve (Japan), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare set from one of Stan Getz's hippest groups! The album was recorded in Paris in 1966, during a time in which Stan was working with a groundbreaking quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes, Steve Swallow on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – a combo that unfortunately got a bit overshadowed by Stan's bossa work, which was recorded in earlier years, but still getting issued and played heavily during the time of the Burton quartet's reign. The upshot of that situation was that the combo weren't nearly as exposed, or recorded, as much as they should have been – making the record an essential look at this under-documented side of Stan's career. Getz's tone is fantastic – and he glides freely with the young modernists in a way that you barely ever hear on any of his sides from the 60s, save for, perhaps, the sublime Sweet Rain LP. Titles include the long "The Knight Rides Again" – plus the tracks "Singing Song", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Edelweiss", and "Manha De Carnaval". CD

The tenor of Stan Getz meets the baritone sax of Gerry Mulligan – and then they switch things around for half of the record, as Stan picks up the baritone and Mulligan takes on tenor! Gerry always seems to open up whole new sides of his playing when sharing the leader spotlight with another star – and here, in the company of Getz, he hits a shimmering, sparkling sound that's really great, and filled with feeling. Stan's wonderful too – very much in his best mid 50s Verve period – working in a groove that's deep and laidback, with a strong undercurrent of warmth – thanks to familiar rhythm backing from the trio of Lou Levy on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Stan Levey on drums. Titles include "Anything Goes", "Ballad", and "That Old Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very different record than the first collaboration between Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto – but that's also one of the things that makes it great! The album's more of a split LP than a shared one – as side one features a live performance from the great mid 60s Stan Getz quartet that featured Gary Burton on vibes – a wonderfully cool combo that was very under-documented on record, and which makes a key appearance here. The combination of Burton's vibes and Stan's tenor is pure genius – a sound that's got all the subtle hues and cool colors of the Getz bossa recordings, but which is quite different overall. Stan's tone is amazing on these tunes – and titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Tonight I Shall Sleep With A Smile On My Face", "Grandfather's Waltz", and "Stan's Blues". Side two features Joao Gilberto without Stan – playing in a very groovy trio that's more straight bossa than most of his other US recordings – cool small combo grooving that's totally great! The lineup features Gilberto on guitar and vocals, Keeter Betts on bass, and Helcio Milito on drums – all working in a sweetly grooving mode on titles that include "Samba De Minha Terra", "Meditation", "Bim Bom", "Rosa Moreno", and "O Pato".

The set was recorded in San Francisco, when Stan had that great bassist Scott LaFaro in his group, and when he was brought into the studio by Fantasy to meet with local talents like Cal Tjader, Eddie Duran, and Vince Guaraldi. Billy Higgins is also added on drums, giving the set a lively songlike sound that's just great. The group works incredibly well together, and it's a shame they only really gelled for this rare non-Verve session. Titles include "Big Bear", "Crow's Nest", and "Ginza Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

Mose AllisonRamblin' With Mose ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A pivotal album for Mose Allison – and one of the first records to ever feature his voice, even if only on one track! During the 50s, Allison was mostly known for his work as a bop-styled pianist – on records by Stan Getz and others – but at the end of the decade, he really returned to his roots, and began to forge a New Orleans-styled approach to jazz that had lots of bluesy inflections and a much earthier sensibility. This album offers a bit of both Allison sides of the fence – some straighter piano jazz with a trio that features Addison Farmer on bass and Ronnie Free on drums, but also some rootsier numbers that come off nicely. Mose sings on "I Got A Right To Cry", and other titles include "Ramble", "Saritha", "Ingenue", "Old Devil Moon", "The Minstrels", "Old Man John", and "The Kissin Bug".

Laurindo Almeida & Bud ShankBrazilliance ... LP
World Pacific, Early 50s. Sealed Gatefold ... $14.99
A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. The mix of alto and guitar, in a jazzy vein, but with Latiny rhythms, is very similar to the early bossa jazz recordings – and even more so to the later American ones by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Supposedly, original 10" LPs of the material made their way to Brazil, and later influenced Jobim and Gilberto. Although we can't confirm that rumor entirely, you'll sure hear a similarity, and even if you don't, the stuff's still pretty darn great.

The date's a great small combo one – with Bob's valve trombone at the head of a quartet that includes Jimmy Rowles on piano, Buddy Clark on bass, and Mel Lewis on drums – all working with Brookmeyer in a very easygoing way that makes for some of his most expressive solos on record at the time. Tracks are never that long – save for one – but Bob really packs plenty into the space, and clearly learns a lesson here from his time with Stan Getz.

There's a definite R&B vibe going on, but it's also one that's still quite heavy on bass work from Stanley – a groove that's not far from Bootsy Collins at times, but perhaps with a bit more jazz inflections. Jamming is kept to a minimum, which is fine by us – and the album's filled with really tuneful tunes that have an almost George Duke-like appeal. Guests include Tom Scott and Stan Getz on saxes, George Duke on piano, Harvey Mason and Steve Gadd on drums, and Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals.

An expanded version of Chick Corea's amazing Tones For Joan's Bones album from the late 60s – presented here with some key bonus tracks as well! The core album is amazing stuff – quite different than Chick Corea's 70s work, and a set that's filled with heavy soul jazz and Latin influences! Chick's coming off of years of work in Latin bands, and in smaller soul jazz combos, and his writing here is a mix of the freer style that would later become too free, with the rootsier elements of his background. The players on the record include Woody Shaw on trumpet, Joe Farrell on tenor and flute, Steve Swallow on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – and all tracks are long, with a sweeping, searching, soulful sound. Titles include a beautiful rendition of Chick's "Litha", which he also recorded with Stan Getz on Sweet Rain, plus two other nice originals – "Tones For Joan's Bones" and "Straight Up And Down". This set also includes two numbers left off the original release, "Inner Space" and "Guijira" – recorded at the same time, and a wonderful expansion of the already-great set. Added to the record are two more Chick-centered tracks from the Hubert Laws album Laws' Cause – "Windows" and "Trio For Flute, Bassoon & Piano" – arranged by Corea, and featuring him on piano and Hubert Laws on flute.

An overlooked chapter in American bossa jazz of the 60s – recordings that weren't nearly as well-circulated as the Stan Getz bossa nova albums on Verve, but which have an equally special sort of sparkle! The arrangements here are by Manny Albam and Al Cohn – who both bring an earlier sense of large jazz charts into play with the tighter rhythms of the bossa – at a level that makes things explode nicely with a sense of color, while still keeping the groove light overall! Zoot Sims sounds great in the setting – which opens up with that great mouthy sound he brought to tenor – a voice that's nicely earthy at times, but which still has the right lyricism to match the music.

EmArcy/Universal (Japan), 1955. Used ... $11.99
Don't get this John Williams confused with the bigger-name soundtrack composer of later years – because this set is pure piano jazz all the way through, played by an artist who shined briefly with Stan Getz in the mid 50s! Although little-known, Williams is a great link between bop and mainstream piano jazz worlds at the time – and really sparkles on this session for Emarcy from the mid 50s – a record that goes way beyond simple standards and easy inflections – always voiced freshly by Williams in a mode that's modern, yet not self-consciously so. Rhythm is from Bill Anthony, Ernie Farrow, or Chuck Andrus on bass – and by Frank Isola or Jack Edie on drums. Titles include the originals "Shiloh", "Okeefenokee Holiday" – plus versions of "Manteca", "Like Someone In Love", "Baubles Bangles & Beads", and "Someday My Prince Will Come". CD

✨✧ Paul Winter & Carlos LyraSound Of Ipanema ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $33.99
The sound of Ipanema in the 60s – served up here in a great partnership between American jazzman Paul Winter, and bossa composer Carlos Lyra! The album's an excellent bossa jazz session all the way through – with alto from Winter that's some of his sharpest on record in the 60s, and both guitar and vocals from Lyra – who's getting his American time in the spotlight here, in the way that Joao Gilberto got with Stan Getz! Yet this album's much more of a core bossa jazz combo set than the Getz/Gilberto records – with work from a quintet that includes Sergio Mendes on piano, Milton Banana on drums, and Sebatiao Neto on bass. Titles include "O Morro", "Voce E Eu", "Maria Ninguem", "De Quem Ama", "Lobo Bobo", and "Tem Do De Mim". LP, Vinyl record album

Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski QuartetFlyin Lady ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1978. Used ... $4.99
A charming little 70s session from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – one of the greatest tenor stars of the Polish jazz scene of the 60s and 70s! Jan's got a style that's a bit like Stan Getz during the same time – warmly carved notes that are perfectly at home in easygoing tunes that allow Wroblewski to stretch out in a mode that's exploratory, yet never too out, and relaxed, but never too sleepy. The titles on the set are all nicely extended, giving Jan plenty of room to roam around – and the backing is by a quartet with guitar, bass, and drums – hitting a groove that's partly modal, and partly electric – almost a bit like that on Getz's Captain Marvel album, but a bit less freewheeling. Titles include "Flyin Lady", "Bossa Nostra", "Pastuszek Stomp", and "Why The Monkey". CD

VariousClassic Savoy Be-Bop Sessions 1945 to 1949 (10CD set) ... CD
Savoy/Mosaic, Late 40s. New Copy 10CD ... $168.99 169.00
The roots of modern jazz never sounded this great before – and this is the first time ever that all the early bop recordings by Savoy have been properly brought together in one place! Savoy was one of the most important labels to record the early bop pioneers – and had a dedication to the music that begin in 1945, and moved well into the 50s – as the label captured some of the brightest young stars who'd go onto shape a generation! Almost all of this material was originally issued just as 78rpm singles – then later scattered and repackaged in a confusing way – although many tracks here also never made it into the LP or CD generation, either. The folks at Mosaic have worked incredible magic to correct that error – and have pulled together a stunning 10CD package that finally presents this amazing legacy of music in its proper form – complete with notes and session details that were never given in later years, too. There's way too much here to list in this space – but the set features dates recorded under the name of Dexter Gordon, Fats Navarro, Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, Sonny Stitt & Kenny Dorham's Bebop Boys, Allen Eager, Kai Winding, Ray Brown, Eddie Davis, Serge Chaloff, Kenny Hagood, Leo Parker, Tadd Dameron, Teddy Reig, Brew Moore, Milt Jackson, Kenny Clarke, and Gil Fuller – all with groups that are filled with equally hip and important musicians too. We love Mosaic all the time – but with a collection of 78rpm material, they really knock it out of the park – and do us, and the jazz history books, a mighty big favor! CD

✨✧ Luiz Bonfa & Maria ToledoBraziliana ... LP
Philips, 1965. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy bossa tracks – very much in the mode of some of the Verve hit recordings of the mid 60s! After the success of the Astrud Gilberto/Joao Gilberto work with Stan Getz, it's clear that Philips and Luiz Bonfa wanted to get in on the act – and they've paired Bonfa's guitar with vocals from his wife Maria Toledo – a really wonderful singer with very Astrud-like appeal! The album's got some larger backings from Bobby Scott, who brings in a nice undercurrent of jazz – and while some of Bonfa's other work of the time is somewhat spare and dreamy, the style is nicely full here. Toledo sings in both English and Portuguese, and even scats wordlessly a bit – which we really like – on titles that include "Sambura", "Whistle Samba", "Tanto Amor", "Boticario", "Promessa", and "Sugar Loaf".

✨✧ Joe HendersonMirror Mirror ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great lost session from tenorist Joe Henderson – recorded in 1980 for MPS Records, in a mellower, more easy-going style than some of his electric sides of the 70s! Joe's blowing in a really fluid style – almost like Stan Getz at times, but with a darker, edgier approach – and he's working here with a Getz-like group that includes Chick Corea on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. The set features some great originals by Corea and Carter, and in a way, we're tempted to make a comparison to Getz's Sweet Rain album – which shares a similar mellifluous modern quality to this one. Titles include "Joe's Bolero", "Candlelight", "Mirror Mirror", and "Keystone". CD

Most of the material takes off from Lewis' work with the MJQ, and the band includes two of his bandmates from that group, Connie Kay & Percy Heath – as well as soloists Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, Aaron Sachs, and Lucky Thompson. Titles include "Little David's Fugue", "Sun Dance", "Django", and "Midsommer". In a great David Stone Martin cover, too! CD

✨✧ Ike QuebecSoul Samba (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few Blue Note albums with a bossa groove – and a great one too! The record features soulful tenor star Ike Quebec blowing in front of Brazilian-styled rhythms laid out by a combo that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, and a duo of Latin percussionists! Willie Bobo plays drums on the session, and the cuts have a short groovy feel, with a sax-heavy lead, in a similar style to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – but much more soulful overall, and with a nicely rougher feel on the rhythms. Really great stuff, and with titles that include "Loie", "Goin Home", "Favela", "Blue Samba", and "Shu Shu". Features 3 bonus tracks too! CD

✨✧ Count Basie & Lester YoungClassic 1936 to 1947 Count Basie & Lester Young Studio Sessions (8CD set) ... CD
Mosaic, Late 30s/1940s. New Copy 8 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An incredible document of one of the greatest pairings in jazz – the groundbreaking tenor sax of Lester Young, and the legendary orchestra of Count Basie! The Young/Basie pairing is the stuff of history books, and has certainly been showcased on other releases – but never in this much detail, or with this much attention to both the sound and discographical information – as the 8CD package pulls together tracks from labels that include Decca, Aladdin, Brunswick, Commodore, Emarcy, Keynote, Mercury, Victor, Vocalion, and a few other imprints – spanning over a decade of recording, with a total of 173 tracks in all! Young's horn is amazing – birthed in swing, but given a sense of soul that would shape countless generations to come – a huge influence on young boppers of the Stan Getz generation, but also a real guide to some of the soul jazz musicians of the 60s, and new traditionalists of later generations too. Some sides here are small groups, many more large ensembles with Basie as the leader – plus a few cuts with Benny Goodman, the Kansas City Six, Teddy Wilson, Sam Price, and Dicky Wells – all numbers that might just feature Young but not Basie. There's even a few with singer Una Mae Carlisle, and a few other tracks feature vocals – although the bulk of the work is instrumental. Wonderful throughout – and a great example of how great the Mosaic presentation can be for music of the 78rpm generation! CD

✨✧ Al Cohn & Jimmy RowlesHeavy Love (with bonus track) ... CD
Xanadu, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lots of heavy love here – a wonderful sense of rapport between the great tenorist Al Cohn and piano genius Jimmy Rowles! Both musicians were still recording heavily at the time of this album, but the record seems to capture them in a really special space that still stands strongly on its own – a mode that's much more relaxes than some of the Pablo Records sessions of the time, and which has Cohn in an especially striking mode – really hitting these openly-blown, often-angular lines that are dripping with soul – more heart and feeling than we might normally expect from him, matched equally by Jimmy Rowles' wonderful phrasing on piano – very much here at the top shelf level he delivered with Stan Getz on The Peacocks album. Titles include "I Hadn't Anyone Till You", "Bar Talk", "These Foolish Things", "Them There Eyes", and "Sweet & Lovely". Features the bonus track "For All We Know". CD

A brilliant mid 70s set headlined by pianist Al Haig & guitarist Jimmy Raney – essentially a reunion of bandmates from the early 50s Stan Getz Quintet – beautifully done and in a timelessly appealing mode! What's great about this is that doesn't feel in the least a hokey revisit the old days kinda thing, as if we should have expected something so crass from such wonderful players. They play some evergreen jazz standards some numbers that made waves in the 60s and later, the group includes Jamil Nasser on bass, Frank Gand on drums, plus guitar by Doug Raney on "You Came To Me From Out Of Nowhere". Other numbers including the Eddie Harris penned title track, Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance", "Round Midnight", "Invitation", "Enigma" and close with Cole Porter's "Get Out Of Town" and "I Love You".

✨✧ Phil WoodsPhil Woods & The Japanese Rhythm Machine Live In Tokyo ... LP
RCA (Japan), 1975. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Key proof that Phil Woods kept on growing tremendously well into the 70s – pushing way past the Bird-inspired sound of his youth, into a whole new space of expression on alto sax! Woods is working here on a rare non-US date with his Japanese Rhythm Machine group – an acoustic trio that features Hideo Ichikawa on piano, Mitsuaki Furuno on bass, and George Otsuka on drums – really taking off on long tracks that build tremendously from his well-crafted and imaginative solo work! The leadoff track is a great reading of Chick Corea's "Windows", and in a way the record reminds us a bit of Stan Getz's work with Chick Corea – a setting in which an older player is set free from previous expectations to really open up an re-develop his sound! Other titles include "Doxy", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "Johnny Hodges", and "Speak Low". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Laurindo Almeida & Bud ShankBrazilliance ... LP
World Pacific, Early 50s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. The mix of alto and guitar, in a jazzy vein, but with Latiny rhythms, is very similar to the early bossa jazz recordings – and even more so to the later American ones by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Supposedly, original 10" LPs of the material made their way to Brazil, and later influenced Jobim and Gilberto. Although we can't confirm that rumor entirely, you'll sure hear a similarity, and even if you don't, the stuff's still pretty darn great. Titles include "Terra Seca", "Amor Flamenco", "Atabaque", "No No", "Noctambulism", "Tocata", and "Carinoso". LP, Vinyl record album

The title's a bit of a shocker – in that that we don't normally think of Herb as a bluesy player – but it's pretty darn honest, given the great sound of this set! Herb's playing in a really mellow and laidback style for this session – working with Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Ray Brown, and Stan Levey on a set of bluesy tunes that feature his guitar in the lead, working through some magical solos that are far more expressive than on some of his work on other albums from the time. The record's a genuine surprise, and a real lost Verve treasure – as Ellis steps out with a great tone and some nice rootsy solos on tracks that include "Patti Cake", "Blues For Junior", "Blues For Janet", "Pap's Blues", and "Tin Roof Blues".

2 nice live sets – put together by Norm Granz, as a tour of the JATP all stars in Europe. Originally issued separately, but pretty much under the same title, the first LP brings together the hottest jazz stars of the day, and on this volume it includes Dizzy Gillespie, Cannonball Adderley, JJ Johnson, Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge. There's a great jamming take on "Bernie's Tune" and a sidelong riffing version of "All The Things You Are", plus "Swedish Jam". The second album was issued ostensibly as a Dizzy Gillespie performance, but with like the first features some very strong guest stars! The core of the group is Diz's great one from the early 60s – with Lalo Schifrin on piano and Leo Wright on alto and flute, and they're joined by Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, and Candido for this tasty set of three long tracks: "Kush", "The Mooch" and "Wheatleigh Hall".

A really cool collection of sci-fi soundtrack work – a massive 79 tracks pulled from the short-lived but excellent TV show The Invaders – a striking visual experience that was presented with some equally great music! The whole thing is a great reminder of a time when the TV studios would really go all-out with a program – allowing a top-shelf composer to write a whole new score every week – often with a great sense of variety to fit the changing narrative on a week to week basis, which is definitely the case here! The package features great material from a host of west coast composers, some of them from the jazz world too – and CD1 features three full scores by Dominic Frontiere, who also wrote the main theme – for the episodes "The Mutation", "The Experiment", and "The Leeches" – plus the groovy "The Go Go A Go Go" by Don Ralke. CD2 features lots more music, and a really good sense of variety – work by modern jazzman Duane Tatro, for episodes that include "Counter Attack", "The Prophet", "Valley Of The Shadow", "The Spores", and "The Saucer" – plus music from more episodes "The Enemy" by Irving Gertz, "Quantity Unknown" by Richard Markowitz, and the episodes "The Condemned", "The Watchers", and "Condition Red" by Sidney Cutner. There's also a few standalone groovy tunes – "Broodin Mood" by Willard Jones, and "Sunset Strip Watusi" and "Cool Fool" by Don Ralke. CD
