Woody HermanChildren Of Lima ... CD
Fantasy/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
An overlooked chapter of the 70s genius of Woody Herman – and the kind of album that shows him continuing to grow strongly, many years after his initial fame! The record takes off ambitiously from some of the funkier Herman sessions of the start of the 70s – and features the core group augmented by the Houston Symphony Orchestra on side one – offering up larger backings to color in the sophisticated sounds of the tunes "Variation On A Scene" and "Children Of Lima", both jazz suites penned by Alan Broadbent, who'd done great work with Herman's group. Side two is back to straighter big band numbers – tunes that burst out with a lot of life and energy, and which have a few of the soulful stylings of Herman's previous funk. Highlights include great covers of "25 Or 6 To 4" and "Where Is The Love", plus a version of Broadbent's driving "Far In". CD

✨✧ Woody HermanWoody Herman Volume 2 – Guest Artist Charlie Byrd & Tito Puente (aka Herman's Heat & Puente's Beat!) ... LP
Everest, 1958. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little meeting of Latin and jazz players – an oft-overlooked album in Puente's catalog of the time! The album features Woody leading a small group of jazz players – including Al Cohn, Paul Quinichette, Billy Byers, and Nick Travis – with extra timbales by Puente and congas by Ray Barretto – and the overall approach is light but tight, with more of a straight jazz component than you'd find on most of Tito's records from the time, but also a wonderfully driven groove that still keeps the rhythms mostly on the Latin end of things! Titles include "Cha Cha Chick", "Tito Meets Woody", "Pillar To Post", "Midnight Sun", "Blue Station", and "Mambo Herd". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Woody HermanHerd At Montreux ... LP
Fantasy, 1974. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Funky Woody caught live at Montreux – a really wonderful set that follows strongly from his tight grooves of the Cadet years, and which is easily one of his best for Fantasy! Despite the live setting, the group are every bit as tight as they were in the studio during these years – really cracking the rhythms at the bottom of the tunes, so that even unlikely numbers come up sounding nights and groovy. Arrangements are by Richard Evans, Gary Anderson, and Alan Broadbent – and titles include a surprisingly funky version of "Fanfare For The Common Man", the electric piano groover "Montevideo", a funky take on Billy Cobham's "Crosswinds", and versions of "Superstar" and "Can't Get Next To You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap is lightly shopworn.)

✨✧ ChaseChase ... LP
Epic, 1971. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The debut album from Chase – one of the hippest jazz rock combos of the 70s! The self-titled Chase album first burned onto the market in 1971 – and it's a great distillation of a groove that was bubbling around in various other segments at the time – some of the tighter big band rhythms of the late 60s, as you might find in the work of Maynard Ferguson or Woody Herman – mixed with the hipper rhythms from the rockish underground, particularly in the work of Blood Sweat & Tears or Chicago. Chase is a fair bit jazzier than both of those groups – as they often put the horns more upfront than the vocals – although most numbers do have some sort of vocals as well. Instrumentation is heavy on trumpets – which come together in blasting, blaring groove, even despite the smaller size of the combo – and Phil Porter lays down some great keyboard lines that really help some of the best tracks cook nicely. Titles include "Handbags & Gladrags", "Livin In Heat", "Open Up Wide", "Hello Groceries", "Boys & Girls Together", and "Invitation To A River". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label stereo pressing. Cover has light wear and a small promo sticker on back.)

North Texas State University Lab BandLab 76! ... LP
NTSU, 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An obscure college big band record – but a groovy one! The group's a great one – really tight, really swinging, and with a slight bit of funk. The tracks are all original, played with a mixture of acoustic horns and piano, pushed by electric bass, very much in the mode of Woody Herman's best funky records from the late 60s/early 70s. The writing is pretty darn great overall – and tracks include "Myth Of Sisyphus", "Love Beams", "Phonk A Trois", and "Labyrinth". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a bit of fading along the spine.)

Ten Years AfterUndead ... LP
Deram, 1968. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A searing live document of the magic of Ten Years After – recorded at London's Klooks Kleek as a great example of the kind of sound that got the group a huge amount of attention before they were even signed to a record label! The sound's still got some of the bluesy influences that both the group and that club were known for – but the guitar of Alvin Lee is really taking off, especially on the album's very long tracks – which seem to insist on solos that would go onto influence a whole psychedelic generation. The Hammond solos are great, too – and titles include "I May Be Wrong But I Won't Be Wrong Always", "Spider In My Web", "I'm Going Home", and a surprisingly great take on Woody Herman's "Woodchopper's Ball", which is completely transformed here! LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Witherspoon & OthersLive At The Monterey Jazz Festival (aka Jimmy Witherspoon At Monterey) ... LP
Hi Fi/Everest, 1959. Sealed ... $11.99
Arguably one of the greatest albums ever cut by Jimmy Witherspoon – recorded live at an early Monterey Jazz Festival, and done in a style that shows the strong link between jazz and blues in Jimmy's work! The group on the set includes Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, Coleman Hawkins, and Woody Herman – and the longish tracks on the set give them all more than enough room to solo alongside Jimmy's bluesy vocals. The album's also one of the first to be produced by a young David Axelrod – and shows a clear respect for both the singer and the musicians, in a combination that would come out even more strongly on Axe's later productions for Capitol. Titles include "No Rollin Blues", "Big Fine Girl", "Good Rockin Tonight", "Ain't Nobody's Business", and "When I Been Drinkin", plus the bonus cuts "Froggy Bottom" and "Oo Wee, When The Lights Go Out"!

✨✧ Al Cohn/Bill Perkins/Richie KamucaBrothers! – The Complete Sessions ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic set of interlocking tenor work from 3 giants who made up the best part of Woody Herman's classic 4 horn lineup – Al Cohn, Bill Perkins, and Richie Kamuca – all coming together here in small group formation! The album's a wonderful example of the way that the hornplay of the larger Herman group had an influence on the smaller combos of the west coast scene – and Perkins and Kamuca are especially great here, working with a strong sense of precision, but also some nice humanity in their tone. Other group members include either Jimmy Raney or Barry Galbraith on guitar, Hank Jones on piano, John Beal on bass, and Chuck Flores on drums – and titles include "Cap Snapper", "Pro Ex", "Hags", "Gay Blade", and "The Walrus". This CD offers up the complete sessions, and features a number of extra tracks! CD

✨✧ Bill HarrisEx-Hermanites ... CD
Mode/VSOP, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Trombonist Bill Harris leads a quintet of "Ex Hermanites" – that is, players who used to work, like Bill, in the group of Woody Herman – and who are stepping out here on their own in a swinging batch of small group numbers! The origin of and setting for the players is no accident – as Herman's group of the era was such a hotbed of musical activity that it was a key force in jazz for players getting together and trying out ideas of their own. Harris himself is a great guiding force on the set – blowing with a style that's fluidly soulful, and warmly spontaneous – accompanied by Terry Gibbs on vibes, Lou Levy on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Stan Levey on drums – the latter 3 of whom make one heck of a great rhythm section! Titles include "Everywhere", "Apple Honey", "Lemon Drop", "Early Autumn", "Blue Flame", and "Laura". CD

Jazzclub/Verve (Germany), Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Groovy 60s pop numbers, all redone as instrumental and vocal jazz tunes – pulled from a range of hip labels that include Verve, Cadet, and MPS! The set is one of our favorite so far in the great Jazz Club series – and it's got a vibe that's right up the Dusty Groove alley – blending together bits of soul, bossa, and psychedelic-styled jazz! Some of the numbers are familiar, some are more obscure, and together the set's as groovy as groovy can be – with tracks that include "She Loves You" by Mark Murphy, "MacArthur Park" by Kurt Edelhagen, "Up Up & Away" by Jim Hall, "Satisfaction" by Gary McFarland, "Ode To Billy Joe" by Oscar Peterson, "Can't Buy Me Love" by Rita Reys, "Knock On Wood" by Willie Bobo, "Hang On Sloopy" by Quincy Jones, "Daydream" by Amber Rock Association, "Yesterday" by Count Basie with Bill Henderson, "Soulful Strut" by Horst Jankowski, "Sunny" by Les McCann, and "Light My Fire" by Woody Herman.

Everest, 1958. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Don't hold Chubby's name against him – because this is a really great little set, leaner and meaner than you might expect! The album has Chubby taking over from Woody Herman – with whom he'd worked for many years, and from whom he got most of the players for this session. The album's got that tight ensemble feel of Woody's best 50s work – extremely powerful and hard-swinging, but with searing breakout room for the soloists – who include Al Cohn, Frank Rehack, Sam Most, and Sam Markowitz. Titles include "Tradition", "A Ballad For Jai", "Oh Look At Me Now", "Mt Everest", and "Yes Indeed". LP, Vinyl record album
