Sipping tea with my man, Tete! This Tete/Tootie/NHOP trio album is a gem. I really bought it for A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, so everything else is just a sweet bonus. Tete was a bad cat! This one is so nice, I’m listening twice. #tetemontoliu #nhop #alberttootieheath #catalanmusic #innercityrecords #steeplechaserecords #quarantinemusic #vinylcollector

These cats could play! The unsung hero for me is Frank Strozier though. That alto just fills in the spaces so nicely. Don’t see this one too often. #jazzvinyl #jazzrecords #nowspinning #vinylcollection #vinylcommunity #wayneshorter #leemorgan #frankstrozier #bobbytimmons #bobcranshaw #louishayes #alberttootieheath

Time for another first outing, Coltrane's debut as a leader doesn't reach the heights of "Blue Train," which he cut five months later, but "Coltrane" (not to be confused with the 1962 Impulse release of the same name) is still a mighty fine effort. It's early 1957, Trane has lost his chair in the Miles David Quintet over his drug habit. After going cold turkey and cleaning himself up back home in Philadelphia, Bob Weinstock, owner of Prestige Records, offers him a three-album contract paying an advance of $300 per release, which Coltrane signs April 9th. One month later, the saxophonist returns to New York City for the first of a series of recording sessions. Although Trane is coming into his own, he is still playing it somewhat safe with his choice of material and performances, almost as if he was testing the waters after years of addiction. Still, this is a great session of hard bop with plenty of Coltrane's powerful, intense blowing. Calvin Massey's "Bakai" is the opener. Stretching over eight and a half minutes, it starts with a contrasting riff theme and slips into a late night lovely minimalist piano solo by #RedGarland along with walking bass lines from #PaulChambers. We don't hear Trane until nearly four minutes in, but its worth the wait, because he plays with much clarity, it's almost like you can feel his personal liberation from the monkey on his back. There is also some great soloing by baritonist #SahibShihab and by #JohnnieSplawn on trumpet, with the polyrhythmic drumming by #AlbertTootieHeath keeping a steady foundation. Trane did manage to get two of his own compositions onto the album, "Straight Street" and "Chronic Blues" (possibly a hint of his former heroin habit), evidence for the high regard in which Prestige held him. Here, Garland is replaced by #MalWaldron on piano. The cover art is one of my favorites, Coltrane's intense look lets you know that he means business. My copy is an original mono pressing with NJ labels. #JohnColtrane #Prestige #RVG #Jazz #hardbop #vinyl #jazzvinyl #jazzrecords #jazzcollector #vinyloftheday #recordcollection #igvinyl #igjazzvinyl

“In the Tradition - Volume 2” by Anthony Braxton. Album recorded in 1974 and pressed in 1976 by SteepleChase: SCS-1045. First pressing. The second of two Anthony Braxton albums that team the avant-garde altoist with a conventional rhythm section (pianist Tete Montoliu, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath) features Braxton exploring five standards ("What's New," "Body And Soul," "Donna Lee," "My Funny Valentine" and "Half Nelson"). Braxton pays tribute to each song's melody before making his abstract improvisations; the rhythm section mostly ignores what he plays. A short "Duet" (which teams the leader with Pedersen) is a change-of-pace and much freer. These two records are historical curiosities but feature much less interaction between the trio and Anthony Braxton than one would hope. #InTheTraditionVolume2 #AnthonyBraxton #NielsHenningØrstedPedersen #AlbertHeath #AlbertTootieHeath #TeteMontoliu #NHØP #SteepleChase #SteepleChaseRecords #BodyAndSoul #DonnaLee #MyFunnyValentine #audiophile #audiophilerecords #audiophilevinyl #hifiaudio #hiendaudio #hifisound #instahifi #instajazz #freejazz #vinylgram #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcollectionpost #vinyladdict #vinylpost #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #instavinyl

“In the Tradition - Volume 1” by Anthony Braxton. Album recorded and pressed in 1974 by SteepleChase: SCS-1015. First pressing. The great avant-gardist Anthony Braxton threw the jazz world a curve with this album. Braxton was joined by pianist Tete Montoliu, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Tootie Heath for a set of five jazz standards. After playing the melodies fairly straight, Braxton tears into Warne Marsh's "Marshmallow," "Just Friends" and "Lush Life" with very complex and abstract improvisations that are generally ignored by the rhythm section who go about playing in their usual bop-oriented style. An exception is a duet with bassist Pedersen on a very spooky "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat," one of two songs on which Braxton plays contrabass clarinet. #InTheTraditionVolume1 #AnthonyBraxton #NielsHenningØrstedPedersen #AlbertHeath #AlbertTootieHeath #TeteMontoliu #NHØP #SteepleChase #SteepleChaseRecords #Ornitology #LushLife #Marshmallow #audiophile #audiophilerecords #audiophilevinyl #hifiaudio #hiendaudio #hifisound #instahifi #instajazz #freejazz #vinylgram #vinylcollection #vinylcollector #vinylcollectionpost #vinyladdict #vinylpost #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #instavinyl

R.I.P.: Jimmy Heath, aged 93. Brilliant composer, arranger and saxophone player. Brother of bassist Percy Heath (founding member of the Modern Jazz Quartet) and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath, with whom he formed The Heath Brother, a fabulous group whose first concert in my native Rio de Janeiro, back in 1982, I had the pleasure to attend.

#foundrecently 👀📦 “KENNY BARRON - Peruvian Blue” I was about to post this gem until I found out a little earlier today that @jazz_party_free and @needlegroovevinyl were paying attention to this great artist. Some people call that synchronicity😄 I was really happy to add this album to my collection as I looked for quite a long time to find my copy. A diverse album ranging from post-bop to some electrified funky jazz. Another example of great and often underrated ‘Muse records’ output 🎵🖤🎶

DEXTER GORDON QUARTET: The Apartment (Inner City Records IC 2025, US 1976) #DexterGordon, tenor sax; #NielsHenningOrstedPedersen, bass. Rosenberg Studio, Copenhagen, Denmark, May 24, 1974; + Dexter Gordon, tenor sax; #KennyDrew, piano; Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen bass; #AlbertTootieHeath, drums. Rosenberg Studio, Copenhagen, Denmark, September 8, 1974. While living in Europe, Dexter Gordon took advantage of a great many opportunities. This album is chockfull of great compositions bebop classics Wee-Dot and Old Folks (which Charlie Parker recorded with strings); and Horace Silver's hard bop power house Strollin'. I think that this will be my last of this series of European jazz recordings 1974-1977, what did you think? #SteepleChaseRecords #InnerCityRecords #BeBop #HardBop #Jazz #JazzVinyl #JazzCollector JazzCollection #NowPlaying

For me, highlights is the epic "Catalan Suite". SteeplechaseRecords #Jazz #JazzVinyl #improvisation #improvisationaljazz #nowplaying #postbop

JOHNNY GRIFFIN - THE MAN I LOVE (Recorded March 30,1967). This set includes a 33 and 45rpm of this incredible show. Johnny is bringing down the house! It includes a belt (seems unnecessary) with foil stamped number and embossed Black Lion emblem. The gatefold has the lion die-cut and is otherwise all black. Great sound from Bernie Grundman, but the jacket feels unfinished. Maybe include some pictures? Or a maze so listeners can find there way from the studio to the gig. Works well on cereal boxes. #vinyl #vinylcollection #records #jazz #jazzrecords #NowPlaying #vinylrecords #nowspinning #johnnygriffin #kennydrew #berniegrundman #alberttootieheath #nhop

This album marked the second recording by The Heath Brothers for Columbia and is fine combination of original compositions and standards.

#OnTheOfficeTurnTable NEW YORK JAZZ SEXTET: Group Therapy - Recorded Together For The First Time (Scepter Records SLP 526, Stereo, 1965) #ArtFarmer Flugelhorn ; #JamesMoody flute & tenor sax; #TomMcIntosh trombone; #TommyFlanagan piano; #RichardDavis bass; #AlbertTootieHeath drums with #MarieVolpee vocals; #ReggieWorkman bass; #PattiBrown piano. First off, how was it that Scepter Records was releasing jazz records? And that their jazz releases were solely limited to Art Farmer and James Moody related tracks? You need to track this album down for the musical content, there is no such thing as a bad Art Farmer release, with seven tracks included here, two are from trombonist Tom McIntosh, two are from Dennis Sandole, one from his brother Adolph Sandole, plus a very interesting cover of Coltrane's Giant Steps with vocals by Marie Volpee, and oddly selected rendition of Indian Summer by Victor Herbert. #NewYorkJazzSextet #ScepterRecords #Jazz #JazzVinyl #JazzCollector #JazzCollection #HardBop #NewAgeBachelorPadMusic #Vinyl #VinylPorn #VinylJunkie #NowPlaying

Yet another grab from the other day. I hardly ever see Mal Waldron records out in the wild, so I grabbed this right up. It's an 80s Original Jazz Classics version, but it cost a few bucks instead of a few dozen and it's a quality pressing from what I can tell. Pianist Mal Waldron has his fingerprints all over some of the great jazz recordings of the 50s and 60s (I first heard him on some of Jackie McLean's albums), but his own releases are harder to come by, which is a shame. In any case, I'm happy to add this gem to the collection. #beatuprecords #malwaldron #addisonfarmer #alberttootieheath #malwaldrontrio #prestigenewjazz #jazzvinyl

For #blackhistorymonth I thought it would be fun but also thoughtful and necessary to share 28 Black drummers that are not only an influence to me, but to many other drummers around the world today. These guys are LEGENDARY 🥁. My first #historicblackdrummer is Albert “Tootie” Heath. Born May 31, 1935, is a hard bop jazz drummer and man he can definitely swing 👍🏾. I discovered him while checking out Sonny Rollin’s LIVE in Denmark ‘68. In that live performance you can see him gelling well and playing dynamically and crisp with the rhythm section and behind Sonny. His ideas are fluid and so melodic. Knows how to keep a groove that’s not only funky but swinging at the same time. Fun fact about Tootie: he’s one of three Heath Brothers who are also jazz legends. Jimmy Heath - Saxophone and his late brother Albert -double bass. Tootie has also worked with Indianapolis jazz giants #jjjohnson and #wesmontgomery talk about a #historicblackdrummer 🙏🏾 #blackhistory #drummer #jazz #jazzhistory #febuary #blackhistoryfact #drums #alberttootieheath

Tonight's listening pleasure continued. Imagine sitting in a Jazz club on a July evening 1967 in Copehagen and listening to a wonderful set by a newly arrived in your country expatriate jazz musician. In that heady atmosphere you listen to standards like "Body and Soul", "Misty", "For all we know" and "But not For Me" permormed not as trite pop songs, or even the canon that musicians at times unfamiliar with eachother on stage communicate but this time as high art not only performed with a Soul and elegance that surpasses any experience you have had of the music but surpasses what the musicians themselves have experienced. That is what I think of music on the three albums gleaned from the performances of DEXTER GORDON and his quartet July 20 and 21 1967 at the MONTMONTRE JAZZHUS. Dexter is of course on Tenor Sax. His bandmates are lomg-time collaborator Kenny Drew on piano, Nils-Henning Orsted Pederson on bass NHOP was destined to become on of the all time greats on upright bass, but on these nights he is a 21 year old kid from the a small town of Osted, Denmark (the only countryman sitting in with a band full of American Jazz legends), rounding out the group on drums is Albert "Tootie" Heath the kid brother of the more famous Percy Heath and Jimmy Heath. During these nights recorded three albums THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT, BODY AND SOUL and TAKE THE A TRAIN. I was not of course there, but I have been at other performance she musician and audience transcend the everydayness of their lives and are truly present to one another on a higher level. As an audient it is that communication and mindfulness we should aspire to. Free of the distractions of our modern life but to be truly and fully present at a prrformamce. #dextergordon #kennydrew #nhop #alberttootieheath
