Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

A cool little Mercury compilation, featuring some of the hippest jazz acts recording for the label at the time – most of them young enough to live up to the title! The set mixes both vocal and instrumental selections – and titles include "That Old Devil Called Love" and "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams" by Jackie Paris, "Sun Dance" and "Little Joanie Walks" by Nat Adderley, "Little Beaver" by Jimmy Cleveland, "Gertrude's Bounce" by Clifford Brown, "Moon Song" by Joe Saye, and "Frankie & Johnny" by Morgana King. (Drummer logo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a center split on the bottom seam and some light stains.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Reminiscin'
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good
A great lost date from the wonderful Gigi Gryce – a set that features the altoist in an sextet, but often swinging with a looser vibe than on some of his better-known albums from the 50s! There's a mix of soulful and modern here that's not unlike the Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Adventure In Sound - Brass
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good
Pete Rugolo was one of the best arrangers of the 50's, and although his work with Stan Kenton and June Christy is well-known, his better albums (like this one) don't really show up that often. Here, he conducts a tight set of orchestral tracks that feature solos by players like Pete Candoli, Don ... LP, Vinyl record album

Girl From Ipanema
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good
A surprisingly great album – one that we might have passed up otherwise! Buddy DeFranco's always pretty darn nice, but he really sounds great on this one – his clarinet solo style mixing with the accordion sounds of Tommy Gumina, all set to some hip 60s arrangements that mix in a bit ...

Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good
Early Norman Granz recordings of Oscar Peterson, released on Mercury in the pre-Verve years, and featuring Peterson playing solo, with Ray Brown on bass. Titles include "Oscar's Blues", "All the Things You Are", "Where Or When", and "They Didn't Believe Me". ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Wave
Philips, 1962. Very Good+
A lost bossa jazz classic from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded at a time when Lalo Schifrin was working in his combo! The record's got a cool, laidback kind of groove – one that's miles away from Gillespie's earlier bop work, and which shows him opening up his rhythmic conception strongly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roots
Perception, 1973. Very Good
A wonderful bit of spiritual soul jazz! This sweet little record was recorded out of the same energy that produced Larry Young's Lawrence of Newark LP for Perception Records, and it's a strange session by Tyrone Washington – a young player from the Newark scene who'd previously cut a ...

Impulse, 1966. Sealed Gatefold
John Coltrane returns to the Village Vanguard – but his sound here is a lot more far-reaching than a few years before! The album's a great counterpart to the first Vanguard session – as it takes all of the bold, soaring energy of that date, and balances it with the newly introspective ... LP, Vinyl record album
