  • Kessell Barney - Live at the jazz mill 1954


    Barney Kessel Live At The Jazz Mill 1954 (Vinyl LP) A fantastic addition to the Barney Kessel catalog of the 50s – a never-heard live set that has the guitarist in form that’s every bit as strong as his famous albums for Contemporary Records! In fact, the strength of the recording may well capture Kessel at a level that beats those sessions – as Barney’s playing live, with a bit more bite – and really grabs us with the strong tone on his solos – and the sense of energy he gets in a quartet that also includes a young Pete Jolly on piano! The recording quality is excellent – crystal-clear, and very focused – and the set isn’t one of those lost tapes that should have stayed ”lost” – but instead a real lost chapter in Barney’s tremendous career. Titles include ”Seven Come Eleven”, ”How About You”, ”Somebody Loves Me”, ”Embraceable You”, ”Get Happy”, and ”Stardust”. © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

  • Ellington Duke, Mingus Charles & Roach Max - Money Jungle + 3 bonus tracks (LP)


    The music is superb and to my ear sounds quite “out there” and surprisingly modern. Great playing by all three musicians. The vinyl is excellent – flat and quiet and the music sounds real which is the whole point I suppose. Piano always sounds a little odd in old recordings (I’m not sure why but I’ve been told that recording piano well is very hard ) – and it does sound a little “strained” in places but given the age of the recording it is pretty excellent. Superb. A good investment.

    Christmas Ball!
    With this compilation we want to give more exuberance to the celebration of love, even if some songs are nostalgic and dreamy and you might even feel taken back to your own childhood. This Christmas disc invites you to the Christmas ball, to dancing, to swinging, to contemplation and exuberance among family members, friends, like-minded people and guests. This music brings glamour into every hut, with all the candles, lights and crackling stoves, while it’s snowing and stormy outside…
    Again a parade of rarities for Christmas
    As always, part of the concept is to focus on rare recordings that are not found on every Christmas collection. For example, a complete single of the Georgie Auld Orchestra with the fantastic singer Bill Darnel, which was released on Coral at the time and contains the title song Christmas Ball, as well as the accompanying B-side, It Ain’t Snowin’ Outside is included. An exotic component comes from The Surfers with Hawaiian sounds and The Enchanters with a mix of doo wop and mambo! To make you laugh, the LP also contains some novelty recordings of greats like Jerry Lewis and Kay Martin. Film star Jerry Lewis had legendary comedic talents in Hollywood’s golden era! Rare recordings, but listen for yourself!

  • Kessel Barney - Live At The Jazz Mill 1954, Vol 2 (LP)

    29,00 22,00

    This is another album of relaxed, swingin’ jazz from Kessel and the Jazz Millers–Pete Jolly-piano, Art Kile-drums, and Gene Stoffel-bass. Like the first volume, these tapes come from a young audiophile who brought his tape machine into the club to record various performers playing there. The sound is warm and actually pretty clean sounding, with a feel of the ’50s. Both volumes are issued on the Modern Harmonic label which is part of the Sundazed label. The disc slips into a pocket in the wallet style cardboard package. There’s a nice two page essay on the inside panels and a track list, photo of the group, and recording info on the back cover.

    This is a good chance for Kessel and/or jazz guitar fans in general to hear a true master of jazz guitar, playing with a small sympathetic group. The ’50s is when Kessel was either near or at the top of jazz polls, and these live tapes will show why that was. Jolly’s piano is also a great feature here. His playing accents Kessel’s lyrical style–listen to ”Tea For Two” as just one example of how well they play together.

    Like the first volume, this album is filled with standards like ”Indian Summer”, ”Blue Moon” (with a nice bass solo), ”I Can’t Get Started” (a beautiful version), ”Godchild” (Kessel’s playing is especially lyrical), and a couple of other tunes. The small club ambience helps define this music–a good example of jazz in a small club that didn’t last a year before closing it’s doors. That fact makes these tapes not only rare, but historic as well. And Kessel’s and the group’s relaxed familiarity with these tunes makes for a good listening experience.

    Kessel fans should check out both volumes. Both are full of Kessel in his prime, backed by a fine pianist and a rhythm section that is never intrusive yet pushed the music along nicely. For swinging, fluid, ’50s jazz guitar, both volumes deserve attention from fans. Both are good examples of what small gigs were like during this era. Can you imagine what it would be like to walk into a small club like the Jazz Mill and hear Kessel during his best years? Both volumes can sit next to other Kessel albums from this prime era.

  • Various - Slow Grind Fever Volume 10 (LP)


    Volume #10 in this amazing series of slow grinding R&B/Soul/Exotica tunes as they are being played in a club in Melbourne/Australia.
    Around midnight on the last Saturday of every month, an assemblage of juiceheads, grifters, kittens, dandies and derelicts gather in a dimly-lit, smoke-filled room and dance
    together real slow. These are some of the records we dance to… Thanks to all the flute players and backing singers of yore for flavouring these old records up just like we like them. (Richie1250/Melbourne, 2019)

    Here’s again a rather eclectic, swingin’ blend of some 1940s jump blues, ’50s exotic mambo, kinky doowop, wild eastern surf and Hawaiian rock’n’roll, a coupla burlesque instros and even a bit of groovy twist and soul.
