Harold Land Quintet: Jazz At The Cellar 1958 (CD: Lone Hill Jazz)Harold Land Quintet: Jazz At The Cellar 1958 (CD: Lone Hill Jazz)
Glorious music by an otherwise unrecorded quartet. A previously unknown extended concert featuring long solos by Harold Land, Elmo Hope and Scott LaFaro. 


Price:  £11.99 


Harold Land: The Fox (CD: Contemporary- US Import)
It would be fair to say that Land's best records were made with the legendary Clifford Brown- Max Roach group in the early fifties. However, 'The Fox' is a very distinctive solo outing, capturing a good band with an inspired Elmo Hope on piano and the only notable appearance of the mysterious figure of Dupree Bolton, a class trumpeter who came from nowhere and seemingly disappeared into oblivion.

Harold Land: Harold In the Land Of Jazz (CD: Contemporary- US Import)Harold Land: Harold In the Land Of Jazz (CD: Contemporary- US Import)
In the late 1950s Harold Land earned a reputation as one of the first and most individual hard-bop musicians based in Los Angeles. Until his July 2001 death, he continued to record many “blowing dates,” of which this is a typical and invigorating example. Along with standard themes, Land uses original material (his own “Lydia’s Lament” and pianist Carl Perkins’s “Grooveyard”). This was also one of the few combo recordings made in America by the outstanding Swedish trumpeter Rolf Ericson. (Fantasy Inc.)

Harold Land: Grooveyard (Vinyl LP: Jazz Workshop)
Other than four titles from 1949, this set has tenor saxophonist Harold Land's first sessions as a leader. Teamed up on the West Coast with trumpeter Rolf Ericson, pianist Carl Perkins, bassist Leroy Vinnegar, and drummer Frank Butler. Land shows that hard bop was very much alive in Los Angeles in the late '50s. His tone is cooler and softer than it would become later on, but it was already pretty distinctive. Land performs three of his swinging originals, the original version of Perkins' "Grooveyard" (which became a minor standard), an obscurity by Elmo Hope, and the standards "Speak Low" and "You Don't Know What Love Is." This reissue also adds "Promised Land" to the original program. Fine straight-ahead music. (Discovery Records)

Audiophile grade 180g vinyl.
