Tommy TuckerHi-Heel Sneakers ... LP
Checker, 1964. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Tommy Tucker may be best-remembered for the title track of this classic album – a tune that was covered by countless other artists in the 60s – but he's a hell of a talent with a mighty great range, and a gritty, soulful sound that's perfect for early 60s Chess Records! The album's got modes that move between New Orleans soul, raw R&B, and some surprisingly great mellow moments that almost have Tucker coming across with a slight tinge of jazz in his voice – in the way that Johnny Watson could also dip into styles of that nature at the time. Together, the racks make for a real revelation – way more than you'd might expect if you were only thinking of Tucker as a one-hit wonder – and titles include "Just For A Day", "Trouble In Mind", "I Don't Want Cha", "I Warned You About Him", "Walkin' The Dog", "Hard Luck Blues", "Long Tall Shorty" and "Hi Heel Sneakers". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, on P-Vine! Back cover has some light age spots near the bottom.)

Philly Joe JonesMean What You Say ... LP
Sonet (UK), 1977. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An incredible later session from Philly Joe Jones – recorded in Sweden in the late 70s, with a fire and imagination that's more in keeping with the European jazz scene of the time, than most of the American records by older players. The album's got a number of great elements – including piano by Mickey Tucker, guest trumpet by the great Tommy Turrentine, and some totally sweet soprano sax by Charles Bowen. The record grooves with a warm, round, spiritual sound that's very different than some of Jones' more bombastic recordings – and titles include "Jim's Jewel", "Gretchen", "Mean What You Say", "You Tell Me", and "DC Farewell".

Lucky ThompsonHappy Days Are Here Again ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $19.99
An overlooked gem from Lucky Thompson's mid 60s years – that wonderful time when he'd returned to the fold even stronger than ever – filled with hip new musical ideas, and a great command for the soprano sax! This set's got Lucky working on both soprano and tenor, both of which are handled with these angular, soulful tones that are totally great – right at home in a group that features Tommy Flanagan on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Walter Perkins on drums – all marvelously sensitive rhythm accompanists. Jack Melady adds harp on 2 tracks on the set – a very nice touch – and titles include "Safari", "Cry Me A River", "People", "You Don't Know What Love Is", and "As Time Goes By". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue trident label pressing. Cover has a name in marker, a promo stamp, and some aging.)

✨✧ Bill LeslieDiggin The Chicks ... LP
Argo, 1962. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent soul jazz cooker from the early 60s – one of the most obscure albums on the Argo label, but not for reason of quality! Bill Leslie plays both tenor sax and saxella on the set – working in a swinging groove that's got a bit of the Lou Donaldson early 60s sound, but which also has a lustier, fuller tone – especially on the album's mellower cuts. The group includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Thornel Schwartz on guitar, Ben Tucker on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – and the tracks have an easy going groove that's right up there with the best soul jazz of the time on Prestige, and which actually even steps past the usual Argo offering of this sort. The album features some great original "diggin the chicks" tracks like "Madge", "Margie", and "Rosetta" – plus a beautifully somber reading of Ornette's "Lonely Woman", which features Leslie on saxella! LP, Vinyl record album
(Grey label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small cutout hole.)
