I'll Take Romance

LP (Item 594370) World Pacific, 1958 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 5

A beautiful album of ballads from Bud Shank – quite unusual, given that most of his output at the time was in a small group mode – but a great little session, and one that's handled with sensitivity and soul that you might not hear on his other records! The backings are by the Len Mercer Strings – mostly done with a light touch, and never too overbearing – so that Bud's work on alto and flute is right upfront in the mix, the latter of which sounds especially nice in the setting – as there's a sharper edge that offsets the strings wonderfully. Titles include "Out Of This World", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "These Foolish Things", "Deep Purple", "Embraceable You", and "When Your Lover Has Gone".

The last session that The Mastersounds ever cut as a group – and a strangely compelling montage of tracks from the musical Kismet.

Workin' On A Groovy Thing
World Pacific, 1969. Sealed Gatefold
Groove Holmes and Gerald Wilson – a wonderful combination on this late 60s session – in a style that's everything great about mainstream LA jazz at the time! Wilson really has a way with the charts on the session – and although the group is large, they've got a lean, clean sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

More Or Les McCann
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A nice session of west coast soul jazz – and one that has Les McCann fronting the soulful group of Gerald Wilson. Les sings on a few tracks, but these are mostly sleepy covers of bluesy standards – like "Please Send Me Someone To Love" and "Since I Fell For You". ... LP, Vinyl record album

World Pacific, Early 60s. Very Good+
A sweet little Latin jazz-styled session – done in the hippest west coast mode of the start of the 60s! Early organ from Charles Kynard, great flute from Buddy Collette, plus vibes from Johnny Rae, bass from Al McKibbon, and lots of Latin percussion played by Armando Peraza and others!

Joe Roland
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good
A sweet little session with great mellow sound – and one of the few records ever cut by vibist Joe Roland! Once upon a time, we might have said Joe Roland a bit too soft for us – but this 1956 Bethlehem session has him playing in the company of a hip group that includes Freddie Redd on ...

Blue Note, 1974. Very Good-
A monster – and one of our jazz funk favorites of all-time! This is the best record ever cut by the great flute player Bobbi Humphrey – and the record features some stellar production work by the great Larry Mizell, very much in the same vein as that which he used on classic sessions ...
