Actually, Chick's on New Mood Indigo -- not Happy Reunion.

Understandable mistake.  Both LPs appeared on Bob Thiele's Doctor Jazz with fairly generic covers.

 

 

My bad. Oops!!!

Nancy Wilson - Now I'm a Woman (Capitol, 1970)

Nancy Wilson keeping up with the times.  New decade, new sound.  For this album, she hired the Gamble & Huff production team (including arrangers Bobby Martin and Thom Bell) to make a Soul-oriented record with the "Philadelphia International" sound. 

Wilson is like Stanley Turrentine.  She always sounds comfortable -- fully inside the music -- in nearly any context.  Jazz, blues, soul, pop.  It doesn't matter.

Such a great record.  One of Joe Farrell's finest hours, imo.

 

I remember on the old Blue Note bulletin board when Greg Maltz used to go on & on about this needing to be reissued on CD. It was even funnier when it came out in the Mosaic box and he still wanted it out separately so we could get the full artwork. :)

Sonny-Stitt-Stardust-Roulette.png

This 1976 LP is a re-titled version of What's New!!!, which Roulette first released in 1966. 

The original title speaks to the fact that Stitt uses a new-at-the-time Varitone sax throughout.

Back in 2011, Marc Myers wrote an interesting blogpost about Stitt's use of the Varitone.  It's worth a look, if the Stitt and/or Varitone saxes interest you.

Norgran  MG N-1094 - Buddy DeFranco " Odalisque" - rec. 1953 (A) / 1954 (B)

I may be repeating myself (!) -- but I really dig that cover.  It's striking.  Simple but potent.

That type of design can look dated (not unpleasantly so, but you know what I'm saying).  This one still looks fresh.

 

I bet the music is good too.  ;)

:D

Yes do agree what you say. Good coverart is very important for me too but seldom seen these days. I may refer  to DSM on CLEF/NORGRAN & Verve.

The music inside is excellent.

Dannie Richmond Quintet. Gatemouth 1004 [1980}

Excellent .... special mention goes to unsung Bob Neloms .... btw the Landmark CD reissue from 1994 adds a fiery alternate version of "Cumbia And Jazz Fusion" ....
