Ellis, Don - Autumn Autumn
Jazz New - LP CS 9721 Columbia
Factory Sealed 1969 Stereo (Label Variation Unknown) Priced As A 2nd Issue. Features Frank Strozier, John Klemmer And Others. “Don Ellis' Orchestra Is Heard At The Peak Of Its Powers On This Columbia LP. "Pussy Wiggle Stomp," A Variation On "My Dad's Better Than Your Dad" But Performed In 7/4 Time, Became The Band's Theme Song, And It Has Its Riotous Moments. The 19-And-A-Half Minute, Six-Part "Variations For Trumpet" Is A Major Showcase For Ellis, "Scratt And Fluggs" Is A Brief Bit Of Silliness, And The Relatively Straightforward "K.C. Blues" Features Altoist Frank Strozier, John Klemmer On Tenor, And Keyboardist Pete Robinson. However It Is The 17-And-A-Half Minute "Indian Lady" (A Live Remake) That Really Finds The Band Going Crazy. Ellis, Trombonist Glen Ferris, And Keyboardist Robinson Play Humorous Solos Before Tenors John Klemmer And Sam Falzone Engage In A Long And Nutty Tradeoff That Is Often Quite Hilarious. The Many False Endings At The End Of This Performance Add To The General Atmosphere. This Is A Classic Release.” Scott Yanow, All Music Guide.... more details

Ellis, Don - Essence Essence
Jazz New - LP S 55 Pacific Jazz
Sealed 1962 Stereo Original. Don Ellis, Trumpet; Paul Bley, Piano; Gary Peacock, Bass; Gene Stone, Drums; Nick Martinis, Drums. “The Rarest Of All Don Ellis Sessions, Essence Matches The Trumpeter With Pianist Paul Bley, Bassist Gary Peacock, And Either Nick Martinis Or Gene Stone On Drums. Ellis, Who Sought During This Period To Transfer Ideas And Concepts From Modern Classical Music Into Adventurous Jazz, Often Experimented With Time, Tempos And The Use Of Space While Still Swinging. His Renditions Of Billy Strayhorn's "Johnny Come Lately," "Angel Eyes" And "Lover" Are Quite Fresh, He Contributes Four Interesting Originals And Introduces Carla Bley's "Wrong Key Donkey" (Here Simply Called "Donkey"). This Is Thought-Provoking Music That Is Certainly Way Overdue To Be Reissued.” Scott Yanow, All Music Guide.... more details

Ellis, Don - At Fillmore At Fillmore
Jazz New - LP G 30243 Columbia
Sealed 1970 2LP Gatefold Original. “This Is A Crazy And Consistently Riotous Two-Disc Set That Features The Don Ellis Orchestra At Its Height. The 20-Piece Orchestra (With Trumpeter Ellis Doubling On Drums Along With A Regular Drummer And Two Percussionists) Often Used Electronic Devices (Such As Ring Modulators) At The Time To Really Distort Its Sound. When Coupled With Odd Time Signatures And Such Exuberant Soloists As Ellis, Trombonist Glenn Ferris, Tenor Saxophonist John Klemmer (Showcased On The Remarkable "Excursion II"), Guitarist Jay Graydon, Altoists Fred Selden And Lonnie Shetter, And Tenor Sam Falzone, The Results Are Quite Memorable. Highlights Of The Date Include "Final Analysis" (Which Contains A Countless Number Of False Endings), A Bizarre Rendition Of "Hey Jude," And An Often Hilarious Remake Of "Pussy Wiggle Stomp.”... more details

Ellis, Don - Tears Of Joy Tears Of Joy
Jazz Quad - LP GQ 30927 Columbia
Sealed, Rare SQ Quadraphonic 2LP Gold Label Housed In A Gatefold Cover. Compatible With Stereo Systems. “Recorded In 1971, Tears Of Joy Is A Don Ellis Classic. The Sheer Musical Strength Of This Ensemble Is Pretty Much Unparalleled In His Career. The Trumpeter/Leader Had Backed Off -- A Bit -- From Some Of His Outlandish And Beautifully Excessive Use Of Strange And Unconventional Time Signatures, Though There Is No Lack Of Pioneering Experimentalism In Tone, Color, Arrangement, Or Style. This Double LP/CD Features A String Quartet, A Brass Octet (Four Trumpets, Tuba, Bass Trombone, Trombone, And French Horn), Four Winds, And A Rhythm Section Boasting Two Drummers, A Percussionist, A Bassist, And The Bulgarian Jazz Piano Wizard Milcho Leviev. The Most Notable Tunes Are The Intense Adrenaline Surge Of "5/4 Getaway" (With A Killer String Arrangement By Hank Levy, One Of Three Arrangers On This Set) And The Blazing Eastern European Klezmer Meets Bulgarian Wedding Music Meets Hard Bop Blues Of "Bulgarian Bulge." Leviev's Solo On The Latter Comes Right Out Of The Knotty, Full-On Bore Of The Tune's Melody (Written By Ellis, Who Scored All But Three Selections), And Cites Everyone From Wynton Kelly To Scott Joplin To Mal Waldron. Elsewhere, Such As On "Quiet Longing," The Strings Are Utilized As The Base And Texture Of Color. One Can Hear Gil Evans' Influence Here, And In The Restrained Tenderness Of This Short Work One Can Also Hear Ellis' Profound Lyricism In His Flügelhorn Solo. On The 17-Plus Minute "Strawberry Soup" (With A Vocal Quartet In The Background), Ellis Gets To Show What His Band Is Capable Of In Its Different Formations. Full Of Both Subtle And Garish Colors, Timbral Grace And Vulgarity, Elegant And Roughly Hewn Textures, And A Controlled Yet Wildly Divergent Set Of Dynamics, This Tune Is One Of The Most Adventurous And Most Brilliantly Composed, Arranged, And Executed Works To Come Out Of The Modern Big Band Literature. It Is Virtually A Big-Band Concerto. Ultimately, Tears Of Joy Stands As A Singular Achievement In A Career Full Of Them By A Musical Auteur Whose Creativity Seemingly Knew Few If Any Bounds.” Thom Jurek, AMG.... more details
