Ornette Coleman Something Else
Already his own man in this 1958 recording debut, on plastic alto, with Don Cherry and Billy Higgins in the line-up from the get-go. Great OC tunes, bluesy and wonky, not really something else quite yet. DC's ace. ...

Curtis Amy Katanga!
Terrific early-sixties west coast soul jazz, recorded for Pacific, with Jack Wilson and Dupree Bolton.

Hampton Hawes For Real!
An all-time HJ favourite, the 1958 Contemporary — with Harold Land, Frank Butler, Scott LaFaro. Silly CD has three extras; and some 1968 live stuff with Jimmy Woode and Kenny Clarke. LP from Jazz Workshop.

Dollar Brand The Journey
Magnificent jazz from 1977 by this nonet including Don Cherry, Johnny Dyani — both top-form — Hamiett Bluiett and Roy Brooks. The grooving, rolling, side-long Hajj — with eastern-style oboe — is knockout.

Krzysztof Komeda Rosemary's Baby, Original Soundtrack
Right up there with his best work. A haunting mix of jazz, horror and Penderecki — featuring Don Ellis on trumpet. Properly manufactured and well-presented, including a foot-square print of the cover-art-work.

Tru West The Dowc Part 2
Gripping jazz improvisation and noise, with reworks by Mass Prod and Harmonious Thelonious. Schwander really gets his teeth into it, conjuring up the tough D-funk of Waajeed and Jay Dee. Refreshing, recommended.

J.R. Monterose J.R. Monterose
The Mingus sax-man with Horace Silver, Philly Joe.
Japanese vinyl pressing.

Jimmy  Smith Plain Talk
Spun out of the Open House sessions, with Jackie Mac, Ike Quebec and Blue Mitchell in the front line. Blue and white Liberty labels.

Donald Byrd Parisian Thoroughfare
The 1958 Olympia performance with Bobby Jaspar and co as reissued by French Polygram Jazz in 1987. 'Byrd In Paris Volume 2.'

Carl Perkins
Terrific piano-trio record, originally out on Dootsie William’s LA-based Dootone label in the mid-50s. With Leroy Vinnegar and Lawrence Marable. True blue jazz. Miles loved him. Very warmly recommended.

Dexter Gordon Dexter Blows Hot And Cool
Tremendous Dexter. Carl Perkins in the place. Our favourite version of Cry Me A River.

Curtis Counce Exploring The Future
You need the two Contemporaries, and you need this — with the great pianist Elmo Hope replacing Carl Perkins (dead from heroin at 29), alongside Harold Land and Frank Butler, two more HJ heroes.

Grant Green Shades Of Green
From 1972, including three killer JB's, the funkiest of them In The Middle. Seventies issue with blue Liberty labels: the vinyl is perfect; the sleeve excellent, still wrapped, with a cut-corner top-right.
