2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

A great example of the Kenton powerhouse in action – a 90 minute double-live recording that really set a new standard for jazz sets of its type! The album features a side apiece dedicated to each of the three acts – one by Kenton's orchestra, one by Christy on vocals, and one by the Four Freshmen – the latter two supported by Kenton's group on their own sides, then joining together for a final fourth side that features all artists together. The approach is a great one – very vibrant, and certainly crowd-pleasing – and titles include "Artistry In Rhythm", "My Old Flame", "I Want To Be Happy", "Midnight Sun", "Day In Day Out", "Angel Eyes", and "Love For Sale". (In a gatefold sleeve with a booklet in the middle. Cover has some splitting on the top seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

After Dark
Capitol, 1955. Very Good
An excellent album by Marian McPartland – a bit "high concept", but that's what makes it work! Marian's usually sleepy trio is augmented by cello and harp – and instead of turning the record into a snooze fest, the added strings actually give it a slightly darker quality than ...

Cool & Quiet (10 inch LP)
Capitol, Late 40s. Good+
A great "birth of the cool" album from Capitol – a 10" record that brings together some key recordings from that pivotal jazz year of 1949! Titles include "Imagination" by a large group with Bill Harris in the lead on trombone; "Wow", "Marionette" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Zodiac
Capitol, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Of The Bible
Capitol, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Prime material from Cannonball and David Axelrod – and despite the biblical leanings of the title, the record is pretty darn funky! As they did for the Zodiac, Cannonball and Adderley take a trip through a host of cultural milestones – stopping along the way to turn each one into a new ... LP, Vinyl record album

Here & Now
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A bit mellower than usual for George – but very nice! George's quintet is backed by a larger orchestra – the usual mixture of vibes, piano, guitar, and percussion supported by a larger set of strings, which gives the record a lightly drifting kind of feel. There's not as many Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Price You Got To Pay To Be Free
Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Classic funkiness with David Axelrod producing, and lots of funky electric piano by Joe Zawinul. Recorded live, when the group was at their best, and with 2 LPs worth of great originals – many by Zawinul. Titles include "Alto Sex", "Lonesome Stranger", "Wild-Cat ... LP, Vinyl record album

True Blue
Atlantic, 1964. Very Good
A cool cooker from altoist Hank Crawford – cut in a tightly-grooving ensemble mode that really reflects his roots with Ray Charles! The tunes are mostly short, but have a great sense of personality – a vibrant approach that comes not just from Hank's lead solos, but also from the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Swiss Movement
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good
The extremely successful union of two of Atlantic's biggest funky jazz stars, caught live in Switzerland, with the amazing Benny Bailey sitting in on trumpet. The tracks are long and funky, and are virtually a blueprint for pop soul jazz playing of the time – mixing slinky rhythms with some ... LP, Vinyl record album
