    Here are 22 tracks illustrating Joe Williams’ transition from Count Basie’s greatest singer to a solo star in the jazz world. The set begins with 10 tracks from his tenure with Basie recorded between 1955 and 1957. The second half of this set features his debut LP released in 1957 ’A Man Ain’t Supposed to Cry’ which is featured in its entirety from tracks 11-22.

    This is a wonderful mix of rocking blues and sophisticated ballads from a performer of immense importance who after leaving his tenure with the Basie band in 1961 went on to record scores of excellent albums.

  • Clark Sonny - Cool Struttin´(180 gram) (LP)

    27,00

    Conrad Yeatis Clark, otherwise known as Sonny Clark, was in many ways the quintessential hard bop pianist. Possessed of an enviable lyrical flow and a wealth of inventive melodic ideas that unfurled with clarity and without fuss, Clark had a deeply rooted feeling for the blues.

    After moving from his hometown of Pittsburgh to New York, Clark emerged as a ubiquitous presence on Blue Note starting in 1957. It was on his fifth Blue Note date as a leader that Clark arrived at his masterwork, Cool Struttin’, recorded in January 1958 with a top-shelf quintet featuring Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto saxophone, Paul Chambers on bass, and ‘Philly’ Joe Jones on drums. The album has only grown in stature as a timeless hard bop classic since Clark’s premature death at age 31 in 1963.

    This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.

  • Smith Jimmy - Back At The Chicken Shack (180 gram) (LP)

    27,00

    Jimmy Smith was a self-taught pianist who abandoned the instrument in 1954 in favour of the Hammond B3 organ, renting a Philadelphia warehouse and woodshedding for a year until he emerged with a revolutionary style that immediately caught the ear of Alfred Lion. The Blue Note boss dubbed him The Incredible Jimmy Smith and recorded the B3 innovator as frequently as he could between 1956 and 1963.

    It’s a testament to Smith’s volcanic creativity that he recorded not one but two soul jazz classics — Midnight Special and Back at the Chicken Shack — when he entered Rudy Van Gelder’s studio on April 25, 1960 with Stanley Turrentine on tenor saxophone, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Donald Bailey on drums.

  • Davis Miles - Ascenseur Pour L’Echafaud (180 gram, Coloured) (LP)

    20,00

    It was recorded at Le Poste Parisien Studio in Paris on December 4 and 5, 1957. The album features the musical cues for the 1958 Louis Malle film Ascenseur pour l’Échafaud.

    Jean-Paul Rappeneau, a jazz fan and Malle’s assistant at the time, suggested asking Miles Davis to create the film’s soundtrack – possibly inspired by the Modern Jazz Quartet’s recording for Roger Vadim’s Sait-on jamais (Does One Ever Know), released a few months earlier in 1957.

    Davis was booked to perform at the Club Saint-Germain in Paris for November 1957. Rappeneau introduced him to Malle, and Davis agreed to record the music after attending a private screening. On December 4, he brought his four sidemen to the recording studio without having had them prepare anything. Davis only gave the musicians a few rudimentary harmonic sequences he had assembled in his hotel room, and, once the plot was explained, the band improvised without any precomposed theme, while edited loops of the musically relevant film sequences were projected in the background.

    The soundtrack was not released on its own in the USA but ten songs from this soundtrack were released as one side of the album Jazz Track which received a 1960 Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Performance, Solo or Small Group.

    This soundtrack might also be referred to as ”Elevator to the Gallows (French: Ascenseur pour l’échafaud; previously known as Frantic in the US), also known as Lift to the Scaffold (UK)”.

    8 of these titles come from a famous 1950s LP called ’How To Strip for Your Husband’ and most of the other tracks and artists come from the world of jazz and r&b.

  • Leiber & Stoller Big Band - Good Rock and Roll for Dancing (CD)

    13,00

    This is the first collection to combine the two legendary albums made by the great songwriting team of Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller.

    ’Scooby Doo’ was released in 1956 under Jerry Leiber’s name and it is chock full of, as the title suggests, ’Good Rock & Roll for Dancing’ which is all played by the cream of Los Angeles jazz men including Ernie Freeman and Plas Johnson. ’Yakety Yak’ followed in 1960 and includes 11 superb versions of their biggest hits including ’Bazoom’, ’Jailhouse Rock’, ’Hound Dog’ and of course ’Yakety Yak’ all played by what is essentially the Count Basie Band just without the Count himself. Great stuff!

  • Dors Diana - Swinging Dors – Expanded Edition (CD)

    13,00

    Blonde Bombshell DIANA DORS is one of a handful of big-name, bill-topping ’Hollywood Golden Era’ actresses who were greatly underrated as singers, and as a result made very few records.

    Consequently her recorded legacy is minimal, running to little more than the sides gathered together on this set.

    This compilation is built around her highly-regarded LP ’Swinging Dors’, recorded for Pye Records in 1960, which has become a collectors’ item over the ensuing years.

    Also included is another serious collectors’ rarity, an earlier 78rpm single, ’I Feel So Mmm……’ / ’A Kiss And A Cuddle’, from 1953, alongside a track from a 1955 musical comedy, and five live performances from 1950s U.S. television shows.

    A special ’bonus track’ features the soundbed to a short 1956 television interview with Bob Hope, on American TV.

    This is a wholly unique compilation as this body of work has never been thus collated before, while the live TV performances have never previously appeared on CD.
