Four CD set 99 of Armstrong's classic early recordings from 1923 through 1928. The first disc covers his work as a sideman with King Olver, Fletcher Henderson, Clarence Willism' Blue Five and other.

DAVE BRUBECK Proper Box 90 Time Was ● CD $24.98
4 discs, 79 tracks, essential
The complete early works of the "Time Out" man, starting with his experimental post-army group The Octet with Paul Desmond, Bill Smith Dave Van Kreidt & Cal Tjader, with strange voicings, inspired by the Miles Davis "Birth Of The Cool" band, as well as strange time signatures, which would be Dave's trademark. Brubeck preferred to play well-known tunes so that his expertise would really stand out. Switching to a trio with Cal Tjader early on then his quartet with Paul Desmond (as) in '51, this covers numerous LPs as well as a few live radio-shots previously only available on bootlegs. The set ends with the live recordings that made up his 1st Columbia LP, the classic "Jazz Goes To College" from '54. With 44 page booklet. (GM)

 
BUDDY CLARK Collectors' Choice 506 Remembering Buddy Clark ● CD $15.98
24 tracks, 71 min, excellent
Known mostly as a Bing sound-alike & original member of "Your Hit Parade", Buddy's mostly been served by Greatest Hits compilations. This is the 1st set to step outside that realm with lots of pleasant pop recorded for Vocalion '38-42 - I especially like a little-known Cole Porter tune I Hate You Darling. Buddy went to war in '43, & came back in '46 signed to Columbia where he stayed until his death in a plane crash in '49. Includes a few seldom heard duets with Doris Day (You Was/ Confess) & Dinah Shore (Easy To Love/ Nobody's Home At My House.). (GM)

 
ROSEMARY CLOONEY Acrobat 219 Greatest Hits, 1948-1954 ● CD $9.98
25 tracks, 66 min, recommended
Rosie's Columbia hits, First as singer with the Tony Pastor Orch including "A" You're Adorable with sister Betty (they were originally billed as The Cloony Sisters), then Rosie's' solo sides, many of which were pop covers of country hits. Lots of #1's & standards including Come On A My House (written by William Saroyan & his cousin Ross Bagdasarian, who would later be known as David Saville)/ Tenderly/ Beautiful Brown Eyes/ Blues In The Night/ This Ole House/ Hey There, even the hit cover of Cliff Carlisle's Too Old To Cut The Mustard as a duet with Marlene Dietrich. 12 page booklet with pics & discographical info. (GM)

 
NAT "KING" COLE Acrobat 4211 Jukebox Hits 1942-1953 ● CD $13.98
26 tracks, 67 minutes, highly recommended
All 26 tracks here hit the Top 10 - five of them #1's, including the opener That Ain't Right done for Decca - the rest are from Capitol except for I'm Lost, done for Excelsior & released in '44 when Nat hit the majors. The majority is by the original King Cole Trio, with Nat on piano & vocals, Oscar Moore on guitar & Wesley Prince replaced by Johnny Miller on bass. By '49 there was the new Nat King Cole & The Trio with Irv Ashby on guitar & Joe Comfort on bass, but after Nat hit the big time with the orchestral-backed Nature Boy, starting with Mona Lisa in 1950 it was lush orchestration. But if you, like me, love the Trio sound, 19 of the 26 are in this setting, including I'm A Shy Guy/ Straighten Up & Fly Right/ Route 66/ Gee Baby Ain't I Good To You. (GM)

 
JOHN COLTRANE Shout Factory 37986 The Bethlehem Years ● CD $24.98
2 CDs, 27 tracks, highly recommended
Not your typical Trane date as he is often heard as soloist in a big-band setting. This set reissues two Bethlehem LPs, "Winners' Circle" (Bethlehem 6066 from '61), & "Art Blakey's Big Band" (Bethlehem 6027 from '58). The Circle sides are 4 tracks with a mighty 9-piece band that includes Freddie Hubbard, Al Cohn, Oscar Pettiford & Phillie Joe Jones, recorded during the last 3 months of '57. The Blakey sides are make up the majority of this set - mostly a 15-piece band that includes Cohn, Donald Byrd, Sahib Shihab, Idrees Sulieman, as well as a couple quintet tracks with Trane & Byrd in the front line, recorded 12/57. However it's the second disc that's the treasure, a whole disc of outtakes from the Blakey sessions including Oasis which didn't make it to the original set & one to three alternates of 7 of the other 8 tracks - you can hear Trane working on his solos. (GM)

THE FOUR ACES Proper Intro 2080 Heart And Soul ● CD $9.98
24 tracks, 65 min., recommended
A post-war, pre-rock and roll, white, close-harmony vocal group, The Four Aces, with leader Al Alberts, financed their own first single Sin (It's No Sin) (Victoria V-101-A) and, following its success, signed with Decca, where they hit it big with Three Coins InA Fountain, Heart And Soul, Stranger In Paradise, and Mister Sandman. But with the rise of doo wop and rock and roll came a corresponding drop in popularity for The Four Aces and their more sedate style. In 1956, Alberts folded his hand and went solo without wild success. The Four Aces replaced him and carried on, but musical tastes had changed and left them behind. A nice collection of their work at an even nicer price. (JC)

CHARLIE PARKER Proper Intro 2077 Star Eyes - A Proper Introduction To Charlie Parker ● CD $9.98
25 tracks, 78 min, essential
As usual, the problem with any Charlie Parker anthology is that all his studio recordings (Savoy, Dial, Norgram-Verve) are in print all are essential. This set touches on all three labels &, if this is your introduction to Bird, you'll eventually want to get 'em all. This is a nice taster, with classics from Savoy (Now's The Time/ Billie's Bounce/ Parker's Mood), Dial (Yardbird Suite/ Moose The Mooche/ Relaxin' At Camarillo) & Norgram/Verve (Just Friends/ Star Eyes). Sidemen include Diz, Miles, Red Rodney, Max Roach, Bud Powell, Erroll Garner, & on the "strings" session, Buddy Rich & Mitch Miller! (GM)

FRANK SINATRA Proper Intro 2081 Young At Heart - A Proper Introduction To Frank Sinatra ● CD $9.98
28 tracks, 79 min, essential
Thanks to the European law that anything over 50 years old is in the public domain, Proper is now starting to delve into Frank's Capitol recordings. Wish I could say there was rhyme or reason for what's here, but it's mostly everything chronologically. In Frank's first year with Capitol, From 4/2/53 - 4/19/54 Frank recorded 38 songs & 28 are here. Except for his first single Lean Baby, the only tune here from his first session & arranged by Axel Stordahl, the remaining tunes are all done by Nelson Riddle & include some of the recordings that defined "The Great American Songbook" - I've Got The World On A String/ My Funny Valentine/ They Can't Take That Away From Me/ I Get A Kick Out Of You/ Young At Heart/ All Of Me, etc. (GM)

VARIOUS ARTISTS JSP JSPCD 923 Away From Base - Basie Sidemen With Other Leaders ● CD $28.98
4 discs, 100 tracks, essential
They could have called this a Billie Holiday box, as it seems that the singer of choice here is Lady Day, hard on over half the tunes here & singing at her peak. These vacationing Basie-ites (which also includes many Ellingtonians & Goodmaniacs) are often heard on small group recordings initially done to fill jukeboxes, with the nominal leader being Billie or Teddy Wilson.

Recorded between '36 & '41, all these cats are DEFINITELY in their prime! Some of the Wilson sides have Teddy with the other _ of the All-American Rhythm Section (Freddie Green, Walter Page, Jo Jones). Besides Teddy & Bille, the most-often heard voice is Lester Yong, but there are plenty of others including Herschal Evans, Buck Clayton, Don Byas, Eddie Durham, Sweets Edison, along with other greats as Benny Carter, Cozy Cole, John Kirby, Edmund Hall, Buster Bailey & Johnny Hodges. Small group jazz at its peak! (GM)

DINAH WASHINGTON EMI Gold 34218-2 The Collection ● CD $14.98
2 discs, 40 tracks, highly recommended
If you don't want to spring for Mosaic's massive "Complete Roulette" recordings, this two disc set is a wonderful sampling from her last years, delving a bit more into orchestrated pop than previous, but also with plenty of jazz, R&B & even, with her tackling of tunes like Key To The Highway, blues. Recruited from Mercury by Morris Levy during his wholesale courting of great black performers (also including Count Basie), these were recorded between '62 & her death in 12/63. Includes such greats as Drinking Again/ Destination Moon/ The Blues Ain't Nothing (But A Woman Crying For Her Man)/ Is You Is Is You Ain't My Baby/ Coquette/ That's My Desire/ Do Nothin' 'Til You Hear From Me/ I'll Be Around/ / Don't Come Running Back To Me/ Me & My Gin/ Drown In My Own Tears.
