✨✧ Symphony Sid & OthersSymphony Sid's Last Radio Broadcast ... LP
Fania, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful, baby! Symphony Sid was one of the pivotal Latin DJs in New York radio, and throughout his career, he helped many of the city's best players and singers get their start on the scene. In 1972, Sid did his last radio show ever – and the event was broadcast from the famous Cheetah night club, with the help of a host of famous Latin music guest stars like Willie Colon, Willie Rosario, Ray Baretto, Orchestra Harlow, and others! This 2LP captures all the excitement of that broadcast, and has Sid rapping his usual rap in between songs, just as he did on radio. The release is an amazing way to sneak a peek into the NY Latin scene as it really existed, and since it's a double LP set, you get a huge amount of great material, put together and introduced by one of the greatest figures in the business. Very nice, and a priceless treasure! LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Lambert/John HendricksSing Along & Swing Along With Dave Lambert/Evolution Of The Blues Song ... CD
United Artists/El (UK), 1960. New Copy ... $7.99 14.99
Quite possibly the only full album ever recorded as a solo act by Dave Lambert, the vocalist that we know and love from the team of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – but who's also a heck of a great singer on his own! As you may know from the group, Dave's got a slightly quirky vocal approach that warbles with the honesty of a good horn solo – a style that we might rank next to Bob Dorough's in its appeal, except for the fact that Dave, like his fellow members in the trio, has a much greater jazz-based quality – and on some of the tunes here, he improvises wonderfully and inflects the tunes in really unique ways. Players on the album aren't credited, but it sounds like it's probably Gildo Mahones on piano backing Dave up – and titles include 2 great wordless numbers titled "Blues" and "Short Blues Around The Broadway Bridge" – plus the tunes "Over The Weekend", "Autumn Nocturne", "All Alone", "Yesterdays", and "We Could Make Such Beautiful Music". Evolution Of The Blues, an early concept album from the great Jon Hendricks – one that tells the story of blues through jazz – all put together as a flowing story in music! Jon speaks and sings the whole tale – but also gets some help on vocals from Big Miller, Hanna Dean, and Jimmy Witherspoon – as well as great musical backing from the core Ike Isaac Trio, with solos by Pony Poindexter and Ben Webster! The music is mostly rooted in blues, but with a hipper jazz sensibility – almost in the way that Oscar Brown Jr and others were going back to the roots, but updating them for the 60s. Titles include "WPA Blues", "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child", "New Orleans", "If I Had My Share", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "Please Send Me Someone To Love". CD

✨✧ Hamiet BluiettHamiet Bluiett – Orchestra, Duo & Septet ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1977. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A nice, if a bit obscure, recording featuring Bluiett's compositions for a larger group, with a stellar lineup that includes Chief Bey, Michael Carvin, Ahmed Abdul-Malik, Abdul Wadud, Reggie Workman, Olu Dara, Don Pullen and others. There's a strong pulse and some heavy African influence here, buoying Bluiett's robust playing, and Dara's trumpet offers up some nice lines, which we don't hear often enough on recordings. Mining a vein that pulls from some of the other more overtly Afro-centric out jazz explorations of the time, this set stands up nicely alongside more groove and vamp oriented material like the Tribe records stuff from the same era. "Glory (Symphony For World Peace)" features a large group, "Nioka" is a duet with Don Pullen and "Oasis – The Well" is a septet side. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Terje RypdalWhenever I Seem To Be Far Away ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic early record by one of the true guitar geniuses of the 70s – and a set that shows why even at ECM, Terje Rypdal could still sound unlike anybody else in his generation! Side one features a quintet working through two very striking tunes – a bit noisy and funky at times, atmospheric at others – filled with freaky lines from Rypdal on guitar! Other players include Pete Knutsen on mellotron and electric piano, Odd Ulleberg on French horn, Sveinung Hovensjo on basses, and Jon Christensen on percussion – and the group plays the tunes "Silver Bird Is Heading For The Sun" and "The Hunt". Side two features a very different mode – the title track "Whenever I Seem To Be Far Away" – billed as an "image for electric guitar, strings, oboe, and clarinet"! Rypdal's guitar is mixed with work from members of the Sudfunk Symphony – and the 17 minute track is a masterful showcase not just for Terje's guitar, but also for his large conceptions of music. CD

✨✧ Saxes IncSaxes Inc ... LP
Warner, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A concept album, but one with a really great approach – a heady group of top-shelf saxophonists from the end of the 50s – all coming together in surprisingly tight formation, yet also getting a bit of solo space as well! The project is headed by arranger Bob Prince – who's got a great ear for letting the ensemble step out at the start, then lay back just slightly to let some of the genius talents on the set get a few licks in – a mighty lineup that includes Coleman Hawkins, Herb Geller, Phil Woods, Gene Quill, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Seldon Powell, Hal McKusick, and Georgie Auld. Things are a lot less gimmicky than you'd expect – and the album's a great meeting of older large group modes and some of the best modern inflections of the time. Titles include "Four Brothers", "The Gypsy", "Night In Tunisia", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "Axmobile". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vitaphonic stereo pressing. Cover has light wear, a center split with clear tape on the bottom seam, and a bit of pencil on the back.)
