Teddy EdwardsBe Bop (10 inch LP) ... LP
Rem, Early 50s. Fair ... $28.99
Very very rare early work from tenor genius Teddy Edwards – issued here on the small REM label! The set features nice small combo work – titles that include "Steady With Teddy", "Three Base Hit", "Roy's Boy", and "Bird Legs". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl plays with clicks and crackles – some spots are nicer than others – but Teddy's horn comes through well overall.)

Teddy EdwardsGood Gravy (Timeless) ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $7.99
A great later date from tenorist Teddy Edwards – captured at a time when he'd been away from the recording scene for a bit, but only seemed to deepen his talents on the saxophone in the process! The tracks here are long and very open – in that style that the Timeless label pioneered with Johnny Griffin and Dexter Gordon – and Teddy's very different voice in this mode is a really great change – full of soulful, slinky lines that are mighty nice – with support from Rein DeGraaff on piano, Henk Haverhoek on bass, and John Engels on drums! All tracks are long – and titles include "Good Gravy", "Oleo", "Georgia", and "Lady Be Good". CD

Teddy EdwardsSunset Eyes (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1959/1960. Used ... $6.99
Teddy Edwards at the height of his powers – packing a tight, soulful punch that made him one of the most popular players on the west coast in the early 60s – and a great link between earlier R&B tenorists and the leaner sound of 60s jazz! Edwards has a nice gutbuckety tone at times – the qualities you might hear from Hank Crawford or David Newman in the way they blended their sounds – but the overall feel is leaner and cleaner, too – not many cliches, and a kind of straightforward sound that really shows the new inroads that the LA soul jazz scene was making at the time. The set features a shifting lineup – piano from Amos Trice, Joe Castro, and Ronnie Ball – bass from Leroy Vinnegar and Ben Tucker – and drums from Al Levitt and Billy Higgins – on titles that include a whopping batch of originals like "Teddy's Tune", "Tempo De Blues", "Vintage '57", "Sunset Eyes", and "Takin Off". Plus, this CD's got some great notes, excellent packaging, and even includes 3 unreleased bonus cuts! CD
(Out of print, sealed West Coast Classics pressing. Booklet has a promo sticker and and barcode has a cutout mark.)

Howard McGhee & Teddy EdwardsYoung At Heart ... LP
Storyville, 1983. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Two giants from the LA bop scene of years past – still sounding wonderful here in the later years of their career! We're not sure we'd rapidly embrace the "young" in the title – but only because there's a maturity of playing here that really makes the record great – a sense of pacing and individuality that makes the trumpet of Howard McGhee and tenor of Teddy Edwards so strong – as they get respectful accompaniment from Art Hillery on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all players who seem to step into the McGhee/Edwards mode, rather than shape things on their own. Titles include "Reflections", "Relaxin At Camarillo", "Yardbird Suite", "On A Misty Night", and "Blues In The Closet". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Teddy EdwardsTeddy's Ready! ... LP
Contemporary, 1960. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Excellent set of LA hardbop tracks by the great tenor player Teddy Edwards, with a group that includes Joe Castro, Leroy Vinnegar, and Billy Higgins. Edwards' tone is fantastic, and the tracks give him a chance to show off his soloing talent in a way that he didn't always reach on other recordings. Tracks include "Blues In G", "You Name it", "Higgins' Hideaway", and "The Sermon". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s yellow label stereo pressing. Cover has some pen and ink stamps on back. Label has a bit of pen.)

George JenkinsDrum Magic ... LP
Tampa, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Hard wailing stuff – a mixture of jazz and R&B grooving, with some great tenor work by Fred Clark, over tightly jumping arrangements by the small combo of drummer George Jenkins! Despite the title, George gives all players plenty of space – and the record feels like a raw boppish side from the Central Ave scene in LA, especially as Clark is blowing as soulfully as Teddy Edwards! Titles include "Port Side", "Bar B Que", "GJ's Drums", "Bullfrog", and "Antipathy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pink label pressing with deep groove. Cover has discoloration from age and some flecks of stuck-on paper on front & back.)

Les McCann & Gerald WilsonMcCann/Wilson ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
2 of the greatest artists on Pacific Jazz meet head to head in the studio – as the Les McCann trio gets backed up by the Gerald Wilson Orchestra! Given the hipness of Wilson's sound, and the fact that his group features solo work by Teddy Edwards and Dennis Budimir, the overall approach to the record is really wonderful – pushing McCann way past his usual bag, and fleshing out the core grooves of the trio very very nicely! Tracks include "Maleah", "Love Of Living To Do", "Kathleen's Theme", "Gus Gus", "Restin In Jail", and "Bailor The Wailor". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Jimmy SmithBluesmith ... LP
Verve, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
One of the hippest Jimmy Smith albums of the early 70s – a lean and mean, down and dirty, back to basics session for Verve – one that's got plenty of grit in the grooves! L:ike the Root Down album, this set is recorded live with a very stretched out feel – tracks that take Jimmy Smith back to the more open-ended styles of his roots, and get past some of the slicker notes of later years. There's not as much heavy funk as on Root Down, but the sound is still equally great – with plenty of sharp edges on the instrumentation, which includes Jimmy's Hammond alongside bass from Leroy Vinnegar, tenor from Teddy Edwards, guitar from Ray Crawford, drums from Donald Dean, and congas from Victor Pantoja. One title – "Blues For 3 + 1" – hits a great little groove that's almost bossa-funky – and other tracks include "Absolutely Funky", "Lolita", "Bluesmith", and "Mournin Wes". LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has some wear and partially split seams.)
