Lee KonitzLee Konitz At Storyville (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1954. Used ... $11.99
Tight early work from Lee Konitz – recorded on location at the very hospitable Storyville nightclub in Boston – a sweet setting for his angular tones on the alto! The style here is great – cutting lines that are incredibly precise, yet crafted with enough soul to keep them from just being exercises in sound – delivered with a bit more warmth than some of Lee's other recordings of the time. The group's a quartet with Ronnie Ball on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Al Levitt on drums – and titles include "Sound Lee", "Subconscious Lee", "Hi Beck", and "These Foolish Things". Great reissue of the original 10" LP! CD

Lee KonitzLee Konitz At Storyville/At Harvard Square/Konitz (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1954. New Copy 2CDs ... $24.99
Three early 10" albums from alto genius Lee Konitz – packaged together here in one great 2CD set! First up is Lee Konitz At Storyville – tight early work from Lee Konitz – recorded on location at the very hospitable Storyville nightclub in Boston – a sweet setting for his angular tones on the alto! The style here is great – cutting lines that are incredibly precise, yet crafted with enough soul to keep them from just being exercises in sound – delivered with a bit more warmth than some of Lee's other recordings of the time. The group's a quartet with Ronnie Ball on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Al Levitt on drums – and titles include "Sound Lee", "Subconscious Lee", "Hi Beck", and "These Foolish Things". Next is Lee Konitz At Harvard Square – clear, clean early work from Lee Konitz – recorded with that crispy edge that he brought to all of his best early work! The album's a treasure all the way through – really amazing stuff, with a sharpness that's quite noticeable, but also a sense of humanity that Lee didn't always have in his later work. The group's nicely relaxed, but still driven by modern ideals – and other players include Ronnie Ball on piano, Jeff Morton on drums, and Peter Ind on bass. Tracks are short, but pack a punch, and titles include "No Splice", "Foolin Myself", "Ronnie's Tune", "Froggy Day", and "My Old Flame". Last is the great Konitz album – some of the greatest work ever recorded by Lee Konitz – crisp, cool, and with that perfect icy tone that was his unique trademark during the mid 50s! The style here is a bit less angular and academic than some of Lee's earliest work – and there's a subtle warmth, almost an intimacy to the way the whole thing's recorded – but also a Tristano-styled approach to the tunes that still makes everything feel a bit off-kilter, even when relaxed. The group's a quartet – with Lee on alto, Ronnie Ball on piano, Jeff Morton on drums, and the great Tristano-ite Peter Ind on bass. Titles include "317 East 32nd", "Bop Goes The Leesel", "Nursery Rhyme", and a great version of "Skylark". 31 tracks in all – with some bonus alternates too! CD

✨✧ Stan GetzStan Getz Quintet At Storyville 1951 ... CD
Roulette/Vogue (France), 1951. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great CD that combines volumes 1 and 2 of Stan's early live recordings at Storyville – excellent small group sessions done with a group that includes Jimmy Raney on guitar, Al Haig on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Tiny Kahn on drums. The mix of guitar and tenor is great together – a sound that became one of Stan's calling cards in the early 50s – and even the live setting can't stifle the strength of his unique tone. The CD features a total of 13 cuts in all – and titles include "Budo", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "Yesterdays", "Thou Swell", "Mosquito Knees", and "Parker 51". CD

Blue Note, 1953. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rare work by Charlie Parker, recorded at Storyville Nightclub in Boston in 1953 – originally broadcast on radio station WHDH, and featuring Bird in a more open, relaxed style than his studio sessions. The recording quality is a bit dated, but the quality of the playing isn't – with extremely fresh solo work by Parker, and great supporting work by players that include Herb Pomeroy, Red Garland, Roy Haynes, Kenny Clarke, and Sir Charles Thompson. Titles include "Cool Blues", "Dancing On The Ceiling", "Groovin High", "Out Of Nowhere", "Moose The Mooche", and "I'll Walk Alone". CD

✨✧ Niels Lan DokyTruth – Live At Montmartre ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988. Used ... $19.99
One of the most soulful sets we've ever heard from pianist Niels Lan Doky – an album recorded live, with long tracks that really bring out the best in both the leader's piano, and the tenor of Bob Berg! Berg always seems most at home on records like this – especially those cut on the European scene of the 80s – and his playing here, similar to his work with Cedar Walton, is a great reminder that he can really be one hell of a spiritual force when he wants to be! The rest of the group includes Bo Stief on bass and Terri Lyne Carrington on drums – and titles include "Love & Passion", "Panduro", "Ten Hours Later", "The Truth", and "I Thought About You". CD

Johnny GriffinCatharsis ... CD
Storyville/Solid (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $13.99
A later entry in the run of Johnny Griffin albums recorded overseas – and one that's very much in the openly-blown style of his classics from the 60s and 70s! As with some of those, the great Kenny Drew works alongside Griffin on piano – and the pair really step out on familiar tunes taken at very extended stretches – so that the long solo passages almost make for mini-songs themselves within the familiar melodies! The rest of the group features Jens Melgaard on bass and Ole Streenberg on drums – and titles include "Isfahan", "Rhythm A Ning", "Just Friends", "If I Should Lose You", and "Slukefter Blues". CD

Jim HallJazzpar Quartet + 4 ... CD
Storyville (Denmark), 1998. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A beautiful Jim Hall experiment for the Jazzpar Prize in Denmark – a special set that features a core combo with additional material from a string quartet – all with results that give the record some of Jim's most tonally beautiful performances from the time! The core group is more than enough – especially as a youngish Chris Potter plays tenor, and seems to bring out these sharper tones than usual from Hall – a sound on Jim's guitar that instantly reminds us what a modernist he can be in the right setting – as the duo are given subtle support from Thomas Ovesen on bass and Terry Clarke on drums. The string group comes in on the second half of the set, and bring in some even more arch tones to the record – quite offbeat and edgey, with much more presence than the more subtle sounds when a group like this accompanies a jazz combo – almost Kronos-like at times. Titles include a cool funky string version of "Purple Haze", plus "Mr Blues", "Stella By Starlight", "Thesis", "In A Sentimental Mood", and "Chelsea Bridge". CD

Jackie & RoyJackie & Roy (plus Sing Baby Sing) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1955. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Two rare Storyville albums from the tremendous vocal team of Jackie & Roy – back to back in a single set! First up is the self titled Jackie & Roy – one of the first albums ever from the team of Jackie Caine and Roy Kral – and one of the best, too! The album's got a relaxed, open-ended approach to jazz vocals that already carries all the hallmarks of the Jackie & Roy style – wordless scatting on some tunes, playful lyrical interplay on others, and a focus on Jackie's ballad talents on some of the gentler numbers – all wrapped up in small combo backing that's sensitive, creative, and modern – yet never in a way that overwhelms the vocals. It's hard to match the poise, class, and cleverness of this one – and the album easily set a new standard for vocal jazz in the 50s! Titles include a few great early tunes by Tommy Wolf – the songwriter who would become so important for the pair – and backing is by Roy on piano, Barney Kessel on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Titles include "Let's Take A Walk Around The Block", "You Smell So Good", "Listen Little Girl", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "Bill's Bit", "Dahuud", "I Wish I Were In Love Again", and "Lover". Sing Baby Sing is sublime work from the duo of Jackie & Roy – a guy/gal vocal team, but one with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! Both Jackie Cain and Roy Kral sing – and Roy also plays a mean piano, and writes a fair bit of the tunes too – really lively numbers that show off the bop-styled techniques they developed while working with Charlie Ventura – but with hipper, groovier lyrics – of the sort that are a key precursor to folks like Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg! Instrumentation on the set is great, too – a small combo with guitar from either Joe Rumero or Barry Galbraith – served up in a really great mix of tunes that includes "Season In The Sun", "Slowly", "Cheerful Little Earful", "Why Not Admit It", "You Are The One", and "Hook Line And Snare".

Teddi KingNow In Vogue (plus Miss Teddi King & Round Midnight) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1955. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Three rare Storyville albums from singer Teddi King – all packaged up here in a cool Japanese paper sleeve set! First up is Now In Vogue – one of a number of great small group sessions done by singer Teddi King for the Storyville label – nicely relaxed, with backing from a septet that features Billy Taylor on piano, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Gene Quill on alto! The Storyville approach really brings out the best in Teddi's vocals – as the easy-going nature of the record has King sounding a bit more grown-up and adult than before – singing lines in a slightly sultry style, yet still with some of the bird-like notes heard on other albums. Taylor's piano adds a nice grounding to the record – and titles include "Old Folks", "Why Do You Suppose", "I'm In The Market For You", "You Hit The Spot", "Something To Live For", and "Like A Ship Without A Sail". Miss Teddi King is great early work from vocalist Teddi King – a set that's got a lot more dark corners and moody moments than some of her later work! The group here is nice and small – a quartet that features Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jimmy Jones on piano, Jo Jones on drums, and Milt Hinton on bass – all of whom accompany Teddi with a nicely sensitive sound – often augmenting her trilling vocals with some nicely blue tones of their own. The tracks are all familiar ones, but they're done in a mellow late nite feel that really gives them a new life of their own. Titles include "I Saw Stars", "New Orleans", "Love Is A Now & Then Thing", "It's The Talk of the Town", "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plan", and "It's All In The Mind". Round Midnight features vocals as dark as they are lovely – a sublime early set from singer Teddi King, served up in a style that's nicely perched between two decades of jazz! There's a moody, intimate feel here that really takes us back to an earlier era – a bit in the way that Lee Wiley often does at the same period, with a sound that's almost timeless, yet never outdated. The only backings here are piano from Beryl Booker – and in a way, the record's almost a duet outing between Teddi and Beryl, with a wonderfully intimate feel overall. Tracks include "Round Midnight", "What's New", "I Concentrate On You", "Little Girl Blue", and "It Never Entered My Mind". CD

Sahib ShihabSentiments (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Storyville (Denmark), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.99
One of the coolest, most compelling albums we've ever heard from reedman Sahib Shihab – and that's saying a lot, given how much we love all his other music! This rare gem's got a very exotic feel –explained by Shihab in the notes as coming from a Tunisian influence on the leadoff track, but which also seems to influence the whole record all the way through – not just in Sahib's amazing phrasing on soprano, baritone, and flute – but also on the album's angular modal rhythms from Kenny Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Jimmy Hopps on drums. The record's one of the hippest that Drew's ever played on – and has a vibrant feel that's much more Saba/MPS than the usual sessions on Storyville. All tracks are original – and titles include "Ma'nee", "The Call", "Rue De La Harpe", "Sentiments", "From Me To You", and "Companionship". LP, Vinyl record album

Jens SondergaardJens Sondergaard Quartet Plays The Brubeck/Desmond Songbook ... CD
Storyville (Denmark), 2020. New Copy ... $7.99 15.99
A really great take on the sound of the Dave Brubeck/Paul Desmond quartet of the 50s and 60s – that magical unit that really transformed the sound of jazz at the time, and continues to hold strong over the decades! The approach here, though, is also a nice change from Paul and Dave – in that Jens Sondergaard has maybe a bit more spirit in his alto, and also plays soprano sax too – and is matched by some fantastic piano from Ole Kock Hansen, a player with a much more organic flow than Brubeck – not that we don't like Dave's piano, but Ole's got a warmth that really changes things up – as does the bass work of Lasse Lundstrom, who's upfront and full in the mix, and also brings a lot of humanity to the proceedings! Tunes are all gems from the key years of the original group – and titles include "Why Not", "Bossa Antiqua", "The Duke", "Broadway Bossa Nova", "Embarcadero", "In Your Own Sweet Way", and "Brandenburger Gate".

Storyville (Denmark), 1964. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early example of Dexter Gordon on the European scene – recording here at his soon-to-be-frequent home of Club Montmartre – a club where Gordon was able to hole up, and really expand his sound! Some of the tracks here are a bit shorter than the 20 minute jams that Dex would let loose on in the late 60s – but he's already finding a way to bring new maturity to his horn, and repair some of the damage of his lifestyle in previous years – working with a superb group that features Tete Montoliu on piano, Alex Riel on drums, and some really fantastic bass from a young Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen. Titles include "Misty", "Manha De Carnival", "Loose Walk", and "I Want More" – and as a surprise, Dex even vocalizes a bit with a nice hip vibe. LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon takes it back to high school, but with a nicely mature sort of vibe – that incredible sense of extended solo creation that really marked some of his classic 60s performances like this from the European scene! The material was recorded at that time when Dex was making huge waves on the Copenhagen scene, but not issued until many years later – yet it stands with the best of his classics from those revelatory years – and features a familiar group as well – Kenny Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Albert Heath on drums. The transformative power of Gordon's tenor is breathtaking throughout – and titles include "Soy Califa", "Society Red", "For All We Know", "The Blues Up & Down", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile". CD

Beautiful work from pianist Geri Allen – a set that features the musician both with her trio, and with a larger nonet that was put together as part of her winning the 1996 Jazzpar prize – as well as a set that features some great late work from trumpeter Johnny Coles! The first half of the record features the trio – a wonderfully warm group that includes Palle Danielsson on bass and Lenny White on drums – really stretching out on the titles "Feed The Fire" and "A Beautiful Friendship". Then, Johnny Coles joins the trio – and gets a great solo space on a version of "Old Folks" – before the larger group comes in, still with Coles up front in the lead on flugelhorn. Those large group titles include "Smooth Attitudes", "Some Aspects Of Water", and "Skin". CD

Great drums from the legendary Roy Haynes – a player who was really coming into his own again at the time of this mid 90s set! The recording's a live one, done for Danish Broadcasting with a good sense of clarity – and the group is mostly European, with Tomas Franck on tenor, Thomas Clausen on piano, and Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass. Haynes' touch on the kit is quite heavy at some points, but light and sensitive at others– and the set's got a well-rounded groove that's great proof of Roy's vision as a leader during this time, especially in the way he uses Franck's strong tenor lines. Titles include "All Blues", "My Shining Hour", "Bessie's Blues", "A La Blues", "Bright", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily". CD

✨✧ Mulgrew Miller & Nils Henning Orsted PedersenDuke Ellington – The Duo ... CD
Storyville (Denmark), 1999. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music of Duke Ellington was famously scored for his orchestra – but the material also provides a surprisingly great showcase for the talents of a smaller unit, too – especially when in the hands of a duo like this! Mulgrew Miller plays piano and Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen plays bass – and the intimacy of the album reminds us of some of the best-recorded Pablo sessions of the 70s – particularly those that sought to re-work classic territory in a more contemporary vibe – which Miller definitely does with his superbly fluid touch on the keys! Pedersen is great, too – very well placed in the mix, and working with that sort of tone and soundshaping that always made him one of the all-time greats on the continent. Titles include "Caravan", "Solitude", "Just Squeeze Me", "Come Sunday", and "Pitter Patter Panther" – plus the Miller original "Blues In The PMs". CD

Drummer Adonis Rose leads a strongly soulful group here – a lineup that features Tia Fuller on alto and soprano sax, Maurice Brown on trumpet, and Miki Hayama on a mix of piano and Fender Rhodes – the latter of which sounds mighty nice next to the horns! The date's a live one, but there's a well-composed vibe to the set – almost echoes of earlier soul jazz styles on CTI and Atlantic – no surprise, given that the set features tracks by Freddie Hubbard and Bob James – but with a more personal vibe at times when Sasha Maskowski lends her vocals to the record. The last component of the lineup is Jasen Weaver on bass – and titles include "Piece Of Mind", "Entropy", "Nostalgic Impressions", "Maurice's Rap", "Blue Llama Jam", and "Keep Your Soul Together".

Karsten Vogel steps out here as more of a multi-instrumentalist than we might have guessed – still playing tenor, alto, and soprano sax on much of the record – but also adding in some keyboards, violin, and rhythm programs too! In fact, it's those programs that shape the sound more than we might have expected – creating this electric/acoustic balance that makes the whole thing sound like some of the more inventive fusion efforts of the 80s – like the better material issued by Gramavision Records, with a similar strong voice in the lead – and a mix of acoustic elements throughout. Vogel wrote, arranged, and produced – and titles include "Kyoto", "Montmartre", "Air Air", "Ouleeka", "No Time", "Lily & The Bird", and "Second Of May". CD
