Some of the best work that Stan Getz ever recorded – a fantastic collaboration with French soundtrack maestro Michel Legrand! The album features larger orchestrations by Legrand, often touched with voices – swirling, swaying, and swinging in a style that's as hip, modern, and fresh as some of the greatest soundtracks Legrand wrote in the 60s. The setting lets Stan really open up – blowing freely in his best post-Coltrane mode, but with a tightness that's missing from other records – and a soulful approach to the tunes that really leaves us breathless! Tremendous stuff – a record that's unlike anything else we can describe, and one we've treasured for years! We love this one to death, and never tire of hearing it! Titles include "Soul Dance", "Flight", "Redemption", and "Bonjour Tristesse". (Cover has a cut corner, a split top seam, and ringwear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Kaleidoscope
Verve, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the grooviest records we've ever heard from guitarist Johnny Smith – a sweet batch of mellow tunes, played with some warm chromatic touches! Smith still has that wonderful tone here that he first exhibited on his 50s recordings, but he also works in a style that's a bit more fluid ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1969. Very Good+
A very groovy batch of tracks that's got a sweet and easy feel – one that features Stan blowing to arrangements by the great Johnny Pate, recorded at a time when both of them were at the height of their powers! Although Pate's style is usually a bit funky, on this set, he's amazingly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tune In, Turn On
Verve, Late 60s. Good+
You know, in these days of vintage pop songs used ad nauseum in every commercial, it's easy to forget that at one time, loads of great music was written just for advertising! This great album was cut at the height of the Madison Avenue Music Industry – and it features Benny Golson leading a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wings & Things
Verve, 1965. Very Good+
Although we've always thought that Wild Bill Davis was a bit of a snoozer, these records that he made with Johnny Hodges are all pretty groovy, especially this one, which has Grant Green on guitar. The group plays a number of originals, with a solid soul jazz sound that borders on a Blue Note bag. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mondo Cane 2
Verve, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A sweet return of the cool sounds that Kai Winding cut on his Soul Surfin album – not really jazz, but a wicked hybrid of groovy 60s modes – set to larger orchestrations this time around, but still featuring some great ondioline from Jean Jacques Perry! Perry's instrument is really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazz At Ann Arbor
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Good
An excellent early album from Chet Baker – recorded with his classic quartet lineup that included Russ Freeman on piano – and done in conjunction with a concert recorded in Ann Arbor, Michigan – oddly promoted by Ollie McLaughlin, a legendary figure on the Detroit soul scene in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1959. Good+
Classic Blue Note work by Horace Silver – the stuff that soul jazz legends are made of, and an album that showed he was destined to be a huge force away from the Jazz Messengers! Blue Mitchell and Junior Cook hold down the frontline with Horace – playing in a mellifluous style that ... LP, Vinyl record album
