Joe Harriott Quintet And Sextet - Southern Horizons
Joe Harriott Quintet And Sextet
Southern Horizons
LP | 1960 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
13,99 €*
Release:1960 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
This is Harriott on the verge of the free form/abstract period, but here, still anchored in the hard bop mode. This is stylish, elegant, tight, swinging; whatever label of appreciation you want to attach to it, this is still fresh music creation. This record sticks to the quintet line-up of sax, trumpet, piano, bass and drums (as on Movement), but with the added pizzazz of a superb bongos player on a couple of tracks, just to heighten the sense of hepness to the proceedings. Partly original compositions, partly covers (including a dynamic take on Caravan), this was Harriott's first long-playing record as a leader. Personnel : Joe Harriott (Alto Saxophone), Coleridge Goode (Bass), Frank Holder (Bongos), Bobby Orr (Drums), Harry South (Piano), Hank Shaw (Trumpet), Shake Keane (Trumpet, Flugelhorn)

Booker Little
LP | 1960 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
13,99 €*
Release:1960 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Trumpet genius Booker Little appeared on many seminal records such as Max Roach's "We insist", Eric Dolphys' "Far Cry" and John Coltrane's "Africa Brass". Recorded in 1960 for the Time label, this is Booker Little's second album as a leader (there would only be four) and a major statement in his too short career. A dynamic and yet relaxed session with Little as the only horn in the band, a fine quartet featuring Winton Kelly or Tommy Flanagan on piano, Scott LaFaro on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums. A highly interactive combo inspired by Little's unique trumpet approach. "Little's immediately recognizable melancholy sound and lyrical style are heard in top form" as Scott Yanow stated in his 4½ stars album review.

Genre:Organic Grooves
House Party is the fourteenth album by American jazz organist Jimmy Smith featuring performances recorded in 1957 and 1958 and released on the Blue Note label. Rudy Van Gelder used the Manhattan Towers Hotel Ballroom in New York City for recording sessions in 1957-1958, while he was still using his parents' Hackensack, N.J. home studio to record artists for Blue Note. House Party was the first of two Smith albums recorded on two dates, the second was Smith's next album The Sermon!, released in 1959. Van Gelder mainly used the ballroom for larger groups of musicians that would not fit in his parent's living room, or when New York was a more convenient location to record the artists involved.

These are good solid blowing sessions, originally not even scheduled for a release and consisting of fine and surprising renditions of Charlie Parker's "Dexterity", Benny Golson's "Stablemates" and Cole Porter's "Easy to Love", plus three originals by Coltrane, Chambers and Drew.
Charles Mingus - Town Hall Concert
Charles Mingus
Town Hall Concert
LP | 1962 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
11,99 €*
Release:1962 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
For this legendary Town Hall Concert recorded on October 12, 1962, the great jazz composer and bassist Charles Mingus brought together an amazing lineup spanning the totality of the nation’s jazz scene with such luminaries as Eric Dolphy, Buddy Collette, Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, Pepper Adams, Jaki Byard, Grady Tate, and more. Brought together to perform new Mingus compositions for the first time in public, the recording was initially considered weak due to limited rehearsal time but the years have been kind to this recording and it’s a fantastic set of Mingus compositions, including the powerful “Freedom” which rivals the works on Mingus Ah-Um for its strength of purpose and message, in a similar vein to Max Roach’s legendary We Insist! album. Mingus is one of the most important figures in 20th Century music and this live recording documents his compositional and arranging prowess as well as sheer swinging joy. Essential.

Abbey Lincoln
Straight Ahead
LP | 1985 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
13,99 €*
Release:1985 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Abbey Lincoln, often remembered for her seminal work with Max Roach, was a powerful performer and indeed one of the greatest Jazz voices of all time. "Straight Ahead" stands as one her best albums. Lincoln is matched here by a ultra-stellar line up including Jazz masters such as Booker Little — trumpet, Julian Priester — trombone Eric Dolphy — alto saxophone, bass clarinet, flute, Walter Benton and Coleman Hawkins — tenor saxophone, Mal Waldron — piano, Art Davis — bass, Max Roach — drums, Roger Sanders and Robert Whitley — congas. "Straight Ahead" is the perfect combination between Lincoln 's strong "Afro-Blue" tone singing, conscious lyrics and angular modern Jazz arrangements. Recorded in New York in a one-off studio session held on February 22, 1961 and released by Candid Records in the same year, the album includes highlights such as Oscar Brown jr's "When Malindy Sings", Thelonious Monk's "Blue Monk", Billie Holiday and Mal Waldron's "Left Alone" and "African Lady" a Randy Weston composition based on lyrics by the great writer Langston Hughes.

Elmo Hope Trio - New Faces, New Sounds
Elmo Hope Trio
New Faces, New Sounds
LP | 1953 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
12,99 €*
Release:1953 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Originally issued in 1953 on Blue Note in the fascinating 10 inch format, the album is now being reissued with an extra track on Side B
(from the original liner notes) What style of piano does Elmo Hope play? It would be easy to answer “The same as Bud Powell,” but this would not do justice to a musician who, while coming along the same route as Bud for so many years, is now ploughing a separate path for himself, though in a similar general neighborhood. His original material, though it has the intense, rapt quality of Bud’s, remains personal, whether it be the relatively serene approach of Happy Hour or the minor Moroccan mood of Stars Over Marakech. When you hear Elmo Hope, your first reaction will quite possibly be “Well, where has he been all these years?” And the fact is that while Elmo was giving recitals at the age of 14 and even won medals during his teen-aged concertizing, he has never, until now, achieved much more than local recognition. If you will pardon the pun, this might be the time to say that there is new hope for Elmo.
Clifford Brown Sextet - New Star On The Horizon
Clifford Brown Sextet
New Star On The Horizon
LP | 1953 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)
12,99 €*
Release:1953 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Formerly a 10 inch issued on Blue Note in 1953 on Mono, this improved reissue now features 4 bonus tracks on the B side.
(From the original liner notes)The date took place just a week before Brownie took off for Europe, as a member of that vast edifice built by the master of multiple decibels, the Lionel Hampton orchestra. Like Gigi Gryce, the alto saxophonist and fellow-Hamptonian whom Brownie pressed into service for this session, the young hornman found the occasions for expressing his individual personality few and far between in so large and monolithic an organization. The opportunity to record with a small, compact group, aimed at the creation of originality and relaxation rather than intensity and consternation, was a welcome change of setting for the two eager youngsters.
A third Hampton star also helped to mold this date. He had also been installed for some time in Hamp’s trumpet section, but is perhaps known better as an arranger, and it is in the latter capacity that Quincy Jones, a new star from Boston, contributed two originals, Wail Bait and Brownie Eyes, for the Brown session. Completing the front line is Charlie Rouse, a tenor man whom most fans will remember from the famous Tadd Dameron conclave that produced The Squirrel, Our Delight, Dameronia, etc. on BLP 5004. Charlie has also been heard in the orchestras of Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and others.

Jazz Piano
LP | 1959 | EU | Reissue (Down At Dawn)

Release:1959 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
More famous for his great film music works than for his Jazz piano playing, composer and orchestra conductor, Armando Trovajoli was in fact one of the very first musicians to carry the standard of Jazz in Italy. Originally released on Italian RCA in 1959, "Trovajoli Jazz piano" was his first official Jazz album and today after 60 years from its release it still stands as an important proof of an early Italian approach to Jazz. This is a fine session based on a perfect mixture of all-time favorite Jazz standards, among them: "These foolish things" and "Round Midnight", and some highly sophisticated renditions of Broadway Musical themes such as "Have You Met Miss Jones?"

With conducting assistance from the legendary South African trumpeter, Hugh Masekela, this is Makeba’s 3rd album, originally released in 1963, and a stunning example of of her modern afro-pop sound.
