Gambit and Lonehill are putting our wallets under serious bankrupt risk these days, at least mine for sure. They are reissuing tons of fantastic albums from the fifties and sixties, and you know, it's becoming difficult to buy everything my jazz heart desires! These very beautiful Lee Konitz albums have been out of print for decades except for the well known and high priced japanese editions. If we were waiting Verve for the re-release of these albums probably we could have wait forever. Verve has an incredible catalog but the label is very very slow in reprinting them. Now they have started to offer some old albums on their site for download but to me this is not the way to go. They have not understood yet that the majority of the jazz collectors want to have the original edition of the albums they really love in their hands. Download is not an option (at least for me, but I know a lot of cats that are on my side). I want to own the original album, with booklet and everything. Gambit and Lonehill have understood this and are seriously offering stellar albums from the past to the jazz collectors. Onestly I would have preferred the albums on their original label (Verve in this case) but if this is the only way to own them at a reasonable price, well ok, I'll get them. By the way, who can resist to buy "Very Cool" together with "Tranquility" for few bucks? Not me for sure! Both albums are from 1957 and both are important albums, but my preference goes to "Very Cool" which has been called "One of the best 100 jazz albums of all time". Well, I don't know if you agree, every cats has HIS 100 best albums, but "Very cool" would be in many of those lists I guess. "Very Cool" is perfect from the beginning to the end there's not a single weak moment in it.Read more ›

One needs to commend Gambit Records for reissuing these two 1957 Verve dates, which for so long were available only on Japanese releases (and hard to find). Both these sessions feature musicians who were long students of the great pianist Lennie Tristano, including, of course, Konitz himself: Don Ferrara (trumpet), Sal Mosca (piano), Billy Bauer (guitar) and Peter Ind (bass). Two Ferrara originals are included on the "Very Cool" outing (SUNFLOWER and MOVIN' AROUND), and both are excellent. Lee was already establishing his masterful KARY'S DANCE as a jazz standard with this his second recording of it in only seven months.

The "Tranquility" album drops Ferrara and is a quartet date with Henry Grimes on bass and Dave Bailey on drums (along with Lee and Bauer). That a modern group such as this would pull out and play the old traditional warhorse SUNDAY, and play it so well (though a tad slower than usual) is a tribute to its self confidence. Two other standards, WHEN YOU'RE SMILING and THE NEARNESS OF YOU, also end up being swinging performances. Both sessions, as one would expect from Tristano-inspired players, are held together by the most solid of rhythm sections. Lee Konitz has had a very full career both in person and in the recording studio; having these two dates, so illusive to track down (in my experience), on one package is worthy of high praise. Definitely worth getting.
