Small FacesSmall Faces (Decca) (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Decca (UK), 1966. Used 2CD ... $13.99
There's nobody like The Small Faces at their best – as you'll hear from the group's killer 1966 album on Decca! The style here is tight, right, and fully-formed straight from the start – easily one of the best UK 60s hybrids of American influences from R&B, garage rock, and early psych – sorted out perfectly by a quartet of lads who really know what they're doing. And the album's maybe even more focused than the group's later album on Immediate – as here, The Small Faces are all business, and the right kind of gritty – just fantastic stuff that's fresh and exciting even today! Titles include "Shake", "Come On Children", "You Better Believe It", "IT's Too Late", "One Night Stand", "Sorry She's Mine", "Sha La La Lee", and "Own Up Time". 2CD version is filled with great stuff – the full mono mix of the album, plus bonus tracks that include "Patterns", "Grow Your Own", "What's A Matter Baby", and "I've Got Mine" – and then a full bonus CD of 14 more tracks – all strange mixes and alternate versions of album tracks!

New Quartette Tres BienBoss Tres Bien (Decca pressing) ... LP
Decca, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark blend of soul jazz and bossa nova – cut by the legendary Quartette Tres Bien back in the 60s! The group are kind of a "piano trio plus" – an outfit with piano, bass, and drums in the lead – but also plenty of conga and added percussion – a style used here to really underscore the bossa inspiration of the set – often in ways that are more driving and more complicated than original 60s bossa recordings themselves! The feel is really unique – almost equally inspired by African rhythms in parts – and even when the group are playing familiar numbers, then manage to transform the tracks completely with their inventive approach to rhythms and super-searing work on piano! Titles include the jazz dance classic "Boss Tres Bien", plus "Rhodesian Chant", "Always on Saturday", "The Sweetest Sounds", "I Love Paris", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "Days Of Wine & Roses".

New Webb PierceKing Of The Honky Tonk – Decca Masters 1952-1959 ... CD
Decca/MCA, 1950s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of best honky tonk performances ever captured on record – by one of the greatest performers ever to sling a guitar over his Nudie Suit! Webb Pierce's stuff isn't cannonized so much as Hank Williams's catalog – but Webb's 50s work here is just as strong as Hank's – if not, dare we say it, better. Aww, to hell with it. It IS better! All the great Decca sessions Webb recorded throughout the 50s – sounding wonderful on CD! Produced in conjuction with the Country Music Foundation, a brand you can trust to do historic work justice. 18 works of hillbilly genius: "Wondering", "Back Street Affair", "There Stands The Glass", "I'm Walking The Dog", "Even 'Tho", "I Don't Care", "Why Baby Why", "Honky Tonk Song", "I'm Tired", "Tupelo County Jail" and more.

New Quartette Tres BienKilimanjaro (Decca pressing) ... LP
Decca, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the earliest albums from the legendary Quartette Tres Bien – the hip piano combo from the St Louis scene – one who were almost to that city's jazz world what Ramsey Lewis was to Chicago! Unlike other piano groups of the time, which were trios, the Quartette featured an additional percussionist in their lineup of piano, bass, and drums – and that added percussion really gives records like this a super-cool kick – a romping sort of rhythm that's totally great! Pianist Jeter Thompson's also one heck of a great writer – as you'll hear on the album's original "Kilimanjaro" – and percussionist Percy James really makes other tunes groove, including versions of "You Came A Long Way From St Louis", "I Left My Heart In San Francisco", "Secretly", "My Favorite Things", and "My One And Only Love".

New Louis ArmstrongNew Orleans Nights ... LP
Decca, 1954. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the hipper Louis Armstrong albums of the 50s – a set that still has him singing in that charming comeback style of other sessions of the time – but which also has a slightly deeper groove overall! The New Orleans Nights title is taken very strongly here – and the session has a much more stretched out, open-ended feel than some of Armstrong's sessions from the time – almost the sort of material you'd hear in a Crescent City club in the small hours of the evening, polished a bit perhaps for a larger audience. Players include Barney Bigard on clarinet, Jack Teagarden on trombone, Bud Freeman on tenor, and Earl Hines on piano – and titles include the hip suite "New Orleans Function", which features narration by Armstrong – plus "Struttin With Some Barbecue", "Basin Street Blues", "My Bucket's Got A Hole In It", and "Bugle Call Rag".

Vicki BenetFrench Touch ... LP
Decca, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $6.99
A classic cheescake set from the 50s – and maybe one of the best records ever from singer Vicki Benet! Benet definitely sings in some of the French modes promised in the title, but she mixes in a fair bit of English language as well – although the musical arrangements are often able to throw in the odd sort of sound from the Left Bank – particularly on accordion! Charles Bud Dant handled the backings – often with a gentle, dreamy feel that's mighty nice – on titles that include "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Miss You, Monsieur", "Tea For Two", "C'est Magnifique", and "September In The Rain".

She is more of a cabaret type singer than a jazz singer and the tracks include "Autumn Leaves", "Pigalle", "La Seine", "Mademoiselle De Paris", "Mon Homme", and "Hymne A L'Amour".

New Elmer BernsteinSweet Smell Of Success ... LP
Decca, 1957. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The full orchestral version of the Sweet Smell Of Success soundtrack – but done in a style that's almost as jazzy and swinging as the small combo one! Elmer Bernstein's at the helm here – and the music's a wonderful pastiche of modes that's right up there with his sublime score for The Man With The Golden Arm – done in a similar blend of driving jazz, somber moments, and some slightly more raucous touches! As with that album, the players are all great – and soloists on the album include Pete Candoli, Ted Nash, and Shelly Manne – west coast players despite the New York setting of the film, and playing here with a fair bit of grit in their groove. Titles include "The Street", "Hot Dogs & Juice", "Toots Shor's Blues", "Nite Spot Rock", "Love Scene", and "Out Of Darkness". LP, Vinyl record album

Elmer Bernstein/Shorty Rogers & His GiantsMan With The Golden Arm – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Decca, 1955. Very Good- ... $9.99
One of the greatest jazz soundtracks of all time! Elmer Bernstein wrote the score to Otto Preminger's chilling film version of Nelson Algren's book The Man With The Golden Arm – a sad tale of jazz, gambling, and heroin addiction on the streets of Chicago (not far from Dusty Groove, in fact!) – and in doing so, he came up with one of the first jazz soundtracks to really work strongly with a dramatic narrative. The film's striking theme is played in a number of variations, either with orchestral backing, or in small combo format by Shorty Rogers & His Giants, a crack west coast group that features work by Bud Shank, Shelly Manne, Bob Cooper, and Pete Candoli. The tracks work perfectly together as a suite of tracks, even without the images of the film – telling a tale of temptation, sadness, tragedy, and rebirth. Titles include "Clark Street", "Breakup", "The Fix", "Zosh", "Frankie Machine", and "Audition". Worth the price for the Saul Bass cover alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing with a deep groove. Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track two. Cover has light wear, some small stains, a center split on the top seam, and a sticker on the back.)

Xavier CugatMidnight Roses – The Quiet New Excitement Of Xavier Cugat ... LP
Decca, 1969. Near Mint- ... $5.99
The definitely got the "quiet excitement" in the title right here – because the Cugie featured on this record is a long way from his harder, heavier 50s sides! The mode is lush and laidback – strongly inspired by 60s bossa arrangements, and penned here by Dick Jacobs – who brings a gentle brilliance to the album that's hardly Cugat, but which is plenty darn groovy nonetheless! There's a real lighter than air quality to most numbers – as soft percussion, warm guitars, and bits of other instrumentation sparkle nicely in the breeze – and while the sound is much more bossa than Latin, it's still plenty darn nice in our book! Titles include "Watch What Happens", "Triste", "All At Once It's Love", "Misty Roses", "Wave", "On A Clear Day", and "I Have Dreamed". LP, Vinyl record album

Sammy Davis JrStarring Sammy Davis Jr ... LP
Decca, 1955. Very Good- ... $2.99
The first album ever released by Sammy Davis Jr – a great debut for Decca Records, filled with a range of tunes that beautifully sum up his many talents! The Sam heard here is a fair bit straighter than the Sammy D of later Ratpack years – an amazing young singer with a really incredible voice – one that's just perfect for mellow ballads or more upbeat, swinging numbers. Backings are by Mort Stevens, Sy Oliver, and Joseph Gershenson – often with a hint of jazz, but usually with a fuller, more dramatic approach that matches the incredible vocal range of the young Davis. Titles include "And This Is My Beloved", "Lonesome Road", "Hey There", "My Funny Valentine", "Spoken For", "Birth Of The Blues", and "Stan Up & Fight". LP, Vinyl record album

John GraasJazz-Lab 2 ... LP
Decca, 1955. Good+ ... $6.99
A classic session from the second wave of LA cool jazz of the 50s – headed up by French horn player John Graas, a player as important to his instrument as Gerry Mulligan was to the baritone sax! Like Mulligan, Graas was working with an instrument that you might normally think of as clunky – but he managed to swing with an incredibly fluid style – bringing the French horn into jazz with amazing skill, and working with groups of top-shelf LA players in a tightly arranged style that crackled with energy! Graas is working here in a slightly experimental "lab" style – mostly in smaller groups than some of his other recortdings, with a varied cast of characters including Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones, Jack Montrose, Paul Moer, Howard Roberts, Jimmy Giuffre and others. 8 tracks in all, including "Love Me Or Leave Me", "Cluster", "Mood", "Three Line Blues", "Chuggin'", "Trio", "Canon-Friar" and "Be My Guest".

Wardell Gray & Dexter GordonChase ... CD
Decca/Giants Of Jazz, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
A classic meeting of two powerful tenors on the west coast – Wardell Gray and Dexter Gordon – locked together beautifully in this seminal recording from an early Gene Norman concert! The format is loose and free – a key bop illustration of what the tenor sax could offer, when set in the hands of giants like this – and each track runs for an entire side of the record, with mighty bold solos from both Gray and Gordon, blowing head to head in the "chase" – plus trumpet from Conte Candoli, piano from Bob Tucker, bass from Don Bagley, and drums from Chico Hamilton. The album only features two long tracks – "The Chase" and "The Steeplechase" – but both of those are more than enough! This CD also includes 11 other tracks from the time period. CD

This set catches Hamp and a great group at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium – playing on long tracks with plenty of cool flourishes and really strong standout moments – pyrotechnic throughout, even in the mellower moments! Hampton is on piano, vibes, and drums – and other players include Willie Smith on alto, Charlie Shaves on trumpet, and Barney Kessel on guitar.. Tunes include "Star Dust" and "The Man I Love".

Carmen McRaeAfter Glow ... LP
Decca, 1957. Very Good ... $49.99
Sublime early work from Carmen McRae – done with backing from pianist Ray Bryant in a small group setting! Carmen's singing in a beautifully fragile mode – with only Ray's piano and a bit of bass and drums to back her up – and it's a real treat to her the McRae vocal approach in such an unfettered format, because even at this earlier age, Carmen had a sense of control, poise, and grace that shines through immediately. 12 tracks in all – and titles include "I Can't Escape From You", "Guess Who I Saw Today", "Exactly Like You", "All My Life", "Dream Of Life", "I'm Thru With Love", "The Little Things That Mean So Much", and "Nice Work If You Can Get It".

New Carmen McRaeBy Special Request ... LP
Decca, 1955. Very Good- ... $4.99
A cool session for Decca that has Carmen's vocals flowing out wonderfully amidst some very haunting backings! The sound here is a bit unusual – given that the groups are headed by accordion Mat Mathews and pianist Dick Katz – both of whom have a good ear for unusual phrasing, and who help keep the record from being just another torchy vocal set from the 50s. Carmen's warmly fluid voice cascades nicely over the top of the tunes – and instrumentation often features a bit of guitar from Mundell Lowe luring in the background – furthering the warmth of the record, and almost giving it a nicely laidback, late nite quality. Titles include "Supper Time", "Yardbird Suite", "Something To Live For", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "I'll Remember April", and "This Will Make You Laugh". LP, Vinyl record album

Quartette Tres BienHere It Is! ... LP
Decca, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The Quartette Tres Bien had a trademark piano/percussion/bass/conga sound that grooved nicely on their own material, and on their mellow covers of 60s pop and jazz standards. This nice mid-period Decca album by the group features some nice originals – like "Jamsine Eyes", "Tracy's Boogaloo", "Happy Donna", and "Pamelam-A-Lam" – all of which are nice and soulful. Also includes versions of "Shadow Of Your Smile" and "Goin Out Of My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

George RussellNew York New York & Jazz In The Space Age ... LP
Decca/MCA, Late 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
A 70s issue of 2 seminal sides from George Russell, originally recorded in the 50s. The first, New York New York is a wonderful album from George Russell – and a refreshing change from his overly-academic modernist work! The session's an unusual one – a musical portrait of New York City, performed with an all-star cast that includes John Coltrane, Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Phil Woods, Benny Golson, Max Roach, and Hal McKusick – all working together to paint tones on the tunes that George has crafted to set up his scene of New York in the 50s. Most importantly, though, Jon Hendricks acts as the narrator of the album – talking and scatting in hipster mode, laying out a bit of beat rapportage about the Big Apple, all done in a very cool 50s style that's a bit different from his own vocal work. Titles include "Manhattan", "Big City Blues", "Manhattan-Rico", and "A Helluva Town". And don't let the title of the second, Jazz In The Space Age, mislead you into thinking it's a record of bachelor pad musi. The set's one of Russell's finest recordings of the 50s, and it features some wonderful work in odd tones and scales, executed by another awesome cast of players, including Bill Evans, Paul Bley, Hal McKusick, Bob Brookmeyer, and David Young. An essential chapter in Russell's career, and nice to have in any form. Titles include "Chromatic Universe (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Dimensions", "Waltz From Outer Space", and "The Lydiot".

Sal SalvadorColors In Sound – Sal Salvador Quartet With Brass ... LP
Decca, Late 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
A beautiful title for a beautiful session – one that unlocks the tones and hues in Sal Salvador's guitar work! Sal's working here with arranger George Roumanis, who brings some real Kenton-like touches to his backings for Salvador's guitar solos on the sessions – and like Stan, he manages to write charts for the set that let the soloist stand out starkly, yet still get plenty of assistance from the larger group. And while you might be worried that the "brass" in the title could overwhelm Sal's guitar, don't – because there's a perfect poise and subtle timing here that avoids any pitfalls that might occur. Part of the excellent Mood Jazz In Hi Fi series for Decca – with titles that include "Desert Fever", "What Is There To Say", "Deep Down", "Easy Living", "Walkin Time", and "Yesterdays". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has light wear and some small stains.)

New Jimmy ScottEverybody's Somebody's Fool ... CD
Decca/Verve, Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
Tremendous work from a young Jimmy Scott – a great collection that brings together rare singles for Decca, Coral, and Brunswick – plus a few tracks that were never issued at the time! Although Jimmy's work has become famous in recent years – thanks to much-needed support towards the later stretch of his life – he seems to sound even more compelling on these early sides – hanging in a sublime space between male and female vocal traditions, and often backed by groups that bring a bit of a modern flavor to the music. We'd almost say that we dig these sides more than Jimmy's better-known work for Savoy in the 50s – and backings are by the groups of Lionel Hampton, Billy Taylor, and Lucky Thompson – all artists who really keep jazz at the forefront. Titles include "Wheel Of Fortune", "I Wish I Knew", "I've Been A Fool", "Come What May", "They Say You Cry", "Alone With A Memory", "When You Surrender", "Why Was I Born", and "The Bluest Blues". CD

New William ShatnerTransformed Man ... LP
Decca, 1968. Very Good ... $34.99
Classic madness from William Shatner – a whole set of tunes performed in his famous role as Captain Kirk! The album's got a creepy sort of darkness that's hard to deny – especially as Shatner speaks, more than sings, most of the tunes on the set – giving them a very dramatic sort of reading, which is further underscored by his recitations of bits of Shakespeare too! Don Ralke did the arrangements, which move between serious and groovy – and titles include "How Insensitive", "Mr Tambourine Man", "The Transformed Man", "It Was A Very Good Year", "Elegy For The Brave", and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds".

New WhoMagic Bus/My Generation ... LP
Decca/MCA, 1965/1968. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
A Who double-header! On Magic Bus, The Who may look like they're tripping things out a bit – clearly a nod to the Magical Mystery Tour-era Beatles – but the groove here is tight, right, and pretty darn mod all the way through – very much in the spirit of the group's earlier albums on Decca! The tracks are all short, and still feature strong influences from soul and R&B – but they also show a great talent for sneaking in spookier bits or more complicated parts too – odd musical elements that might have their roots in older R&B, but which here are turned towards a more mature expression of the group's earlier idiom – really pointing the way towards some of their more ambitious projects in coming years! Titles include "Magic Bus", "Doctor Doctor", "Someone's Coming", "Our Love Was Is", "Call Me Lightning", "Pictures Of Lily", "Bucket T", "Run Run Run", and "Disguises". My Generation is the first full-length set from The Who – a blistering batch of rough-edged tunes that run the gamut from bluesy soul to sweeter pop to guitar-driven grinders that show an incredible amount of power – even at this early point! The album's somewhat all over the map, but in a good way – in that it already displays the rich talent the group had for many styles of music – that hard-to-peg quality that made The Who so undeniably Who-like over the years. Titles include the classics "The Kids Are Alright" and "My Generation" – plus "Instant Party", "A Legal Matter", "Out In The Street", "The Good's Gone", "La La La Lies", and "It's Not True".

New WhoMeaty Beaty Big & Bouncy ... LP
Decca, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
A classic greatest hits package from The Who – one that had almost as much life as any of their major full length albums, and a set that served to re-introduce new audiences to the group after the success of Tommy and Who's Next! Most of the tracks here predate those albums – pulled from the group's earliest years, and awash in mod rhythms, tight guitars, and lyrics that are quite edgey – even in the format of a two-minute pop tune. Titles include "Boris The Spider", "Happy Jack", "Pictures Of Lily", "My Generation", "The Seeker", "I Can't Explain", "The Kids Are Alright", "Anyway Anyhow Anywhere", "A Legal Matter", "Substitute", "I'm A Boy", and "Pinball Wizard".

New WhoTommy ... LP
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Trifold ... $16.99
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park with this one – and pushed the group way way past the simpler songs the were recording just a year before – into this deeply introspective territory, spun out both in the album's words and music. The Tommy tale's been well told many times over the years – so we won't bother with the full narrative – but just let us say that it's hard to go wrong with this one, an essential item in any collection of adventurous rock – classic or otherwise. Titles include "The Acid Queen", "It's A Boy", "Sally Simpson", "Miracle Cure", "Pinball Wizard", "Do You Think It's Alright", "Cousin Kevin", "Christmas", "Tommy's Holiday Camp", "I'm Free", and "We're Not Gonna Take It".
