This is an unusual album, in that it presents the results of what is probably the first modern jazz record date to take place in New Orleans. The Adderleys and Sam Jones are reinforced by three excellent young musicians, Nat Perrilliat (tenor), Ellis Marsalis (piano) and James Black— the latter being an outstanding drummer, influenced by Elvin Jones more than anyone else. Even if the other two newcomers are less than outstanding, they illustrate something I have long suspected —that there are almost as many good musicians (if not brilliant ones) who never see the inside of a recording studio as there are modest talents who are constantly thrust upon us.
Nat Adderley is in fine form on this record, playing inventive solos on most tracks. As might be expected, most of the tracks are blues of one sort or another, several written by the locals. An exception is R.S.V.P., a pleasing ballad feature for Nat. Adderley addicts will want this, of course, and others are advised to hear it for James Black.

Dave Douglas Quintet Live at the Jazz Standard 2006

320 KBPS

Live at the Jazz Standard showcases trumpeter Dave Douglas — on cornet this time! — and his quintet performing Live at the NYC club the Jazz Standard on various nights in December of 2006. Joining Douglas here are tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin, Fender Rhodes specialist Uri Caine, bassist James Genus and drummer Clarence Penn. Originally released as complete download-only sets on Douglas' own Greenleaf Label website, here Douglas has pruned the sets down to 18 cuts over two discs. Furthermore, he's also focused the album on original compositions never before released on album. In that sense, fans of Douglas' past work with this ensemble on such studio efforts as 2002's Infinite and 2006's Meaning and Mystery will surely dig this stuff as it essentially plays as an all new recording and not just a live documentation of the quintet. In fact, disc two focuses on compositions Douglas wrote while delving into the iconic work of innovative pocket-trumpeter Don Cherry and were initially intended for inclusion on Meaning and Mystery. This is soulful, visceral, moody and propulsive post-bop that often leans heavily toward late-'60s and '70s modal and free jazz.

:: Slide Trombone ::

Biography by Scott Yanow (Allmusic Guide)
''One of the great swing trombonists, Lawrence Brown tends to be underrated because he spent so much of his career with Duke Ellington's Orchestra. Actually, Brown's initial solos with Ellington upset some of Duke's fans because it was feared that his virtuosity did not fit into a band where primitive effects and mutes were liberally utilized. But over time, Brown carved out his own place in the Ellington legacy.
Lawrence Brown learned piano, violin, and tuba before deciding to stick to the trombone. He recorded with Paul Howard's Quality Serenaders (1929-1930) and Louis Armstrong (with Les Hite's Orchestra in 1930) in Los Angeles before joining Ellington in 1932, staying until 1951 when he left to join Johnny Hodges' new small group. After 1955, Brown became a studio musician in New York, but then spent 1960-1970 back with Ellington (where he reluctantly had to play some solos with a plunger mute) before retiring. Although he only led two albums of his own (a 1955-1956 outing for Clef, 'Slide Trombone' and 1965's 'Inspired Abandon' for Impulse), Brown was well-featured on many recordings with Ellington through the years; "The Sheik of Araby" (1932) and "Rose of the Rio Grande" (1938) were favorites.''

I think this is a great album, but it's one of those that needs to grow on you. The more you hear it, the more you hear in it.


Roy Eldridge and his Central Plaza Dixielanders - Swing Goes Dixie (1956)

Don't let the 'Dixie' in the title put you off (I know some jazzers stear clear of this branch of our music!). This is so well played and infectious that you just can't help but enjoy it, and there is so much more than your average New Orleans work-out contained within. These are master musicians, on top form, enjoying themselves. I love it!!

Bobby Hackett & Jack Teagarden - Coast Concert & Jazz Ultimate (1955/1957)

A great pair of Albums, made a couple of years apart, both featuring Bobby Hackett and Jack Teargarden as well as a host of top flight Jazz/Dixieland players. I said in a previous post not to be put off by the Dixieland tag, and I say the same here.

Vic Dickenson Septet (1953/54)

This is a great Album by Vic Dickenson, another of those musicians who recorded with numerous top stars during his career. You don't see that many dates where he is leader, but the two sessions included here are absolutely top class. Everyone gets plenty of solo space, and they certainly make good use of it. Once again, highly recommended.

:: Brookmeyer ::

Ace writer, arranger, sometimes piano player, and above all Valve Trombone player Bob Brookmeyer is featured here on three sessions from 1956. Well supported by a host of top names, the results speak for themselves. Excellent.

This LP, originally made for the Vik label (RCA), features three distinctly different groups. The big band has a ball with the leader's upbeat "Oh, Jane Snavely" and one of his best known works, the snappy "Open Country" (which turned up on more than a few of Gerry Mulligan's albums), as well as a quick take of the standard "Just You, Just Me." A smaller group with three saxes (Gene Quill, Al Cohn, and Sol Schlinger) and trumpeter Nick Travis covers the old chestnut "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart" and a pair of Brookmeyer's songs. Another medium-size band with only one sax player (Al Cohn, who doubles on clarinet) plus French horns, tuba, baritone, and English horn conjure up an unusual approach to "Nature Boy," while Brookmeyer switches to piano for his reflective ballad "Big City Life." Brookmeyer's fascinating arrangements and the excellent musicianship throughout all three sessions make this an essential acquisition.

Gerry Mulligan (Sax (Baritone))

Larry Bunker (Drums), 

Carson Smith (Bass)
Bobby Whitlock (Bass)


The first half of this album has the six rarest studio performances by the Gerry Mulligan quartet, excellent music that does not duplicate the Mosaic box or Jeru’s Prestige output. The quartet with trumpeter Chet Baker sounds at the top of its form on such songs as “Varsity Drag,” “Speak Low,” “Half Nelson,” “Lady Bird,” “Love Me or Leave Me” and “Swing House.” The second half of this set is not on the same level, finding the Buddy DeFranco quartet of 1953 hampered by The Herman McCoy Swing Choir on six numbers, all of which have “Star” in its title. This budget set inexcusably leaves off any personnel or date listing but is worth picking up for the Mulligan performances.

Bethlehem BCP-6034

Although he only lived to be 23 and recorded for just a little over three years, Booker Little proved to be one of the top young trumpeters of his era. Victory and Sorrow was his fourth and final recording as a leader. Little's melancholy tone is heartbreaking on the date's lone standard, "If I Should Lose You," and he contributed all of the other six selections, this advanced session has many touching and hard-swinging moments.

Barnaby / Candid Jazz BR-5019

Booker Little was the first trumpet soloist to emerge in jazz after the death of Clifford Brown to have his own sound. His tragically brief life (he died at age 23 later in 1961) cut short what would have certainly been a major career.
