Frank SinatraSwingin Affair (plus bonus track) ... CD
Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... $5.99
A Swingin Affair indeed – as the album's one of our favorite ever from Frank's Capitol years! Nelson Riddle shows here that he can be just as great on the uptempo numbers as he is on the ballads – and casts Sinatra's full rich vocals into a great set of older swinging tunes. Frank really breathes new life into these standards – completely transforming them and making them his own – and in the process making us love tunes that we never thought we'd care for! Titles include "Oh Look At Me Now", "At Long Last Love", "From This Moment On", "I Got Plenty O Nuttin", "I Wish I Were In Love Again", and "Night & Day" – plus the bonus track "The Lady Is A Tramp".

Mark MurphyStart Of Something ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Quite possibly the greatest of Mark Murphy's early albums for Capitol – a heavily swinging set that features some great arrangements from Bill Holman, and Mark's classic version of the title tune – which he'd reprise nicely in years to come! The album's got Murphy in great west coast jazz territory – working with players who include Bill Holman and Richie Kamuca on tenors, Conte Candoli and Stu Williamson on trumpets, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bobby Gibbons on guitar, and Mel Lewis on drums – plus a bit of extra conga on half of the set! Side one features great readings of "This Could Be The Start Of Something", "Just In Time", "Falling In Love With Love", and "The Lady Is A Tramp" – and side two features a swinging medley of tracks that include "Lucky In Love", "Cheek To Cheek", "That Old Black Magic", and "For Me & My Gal". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear and a partially split top seam.)

✨✧ Sammy Davis, Jr.That's All! ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The greatest entertainer ever? We think so – and this 2LP set offers Sammy D in the best possible way to get him: live, and in the very familiar turf of the Sands Hotel. This live album, and it's counterpart (At The Cocoanut Grove, also on Reprise) are, in our opinion, Sammy's best recordings – because they feature him ripping through a bunch of material, doing lots of great impressions and medleys, and really swinging with a tight little combo led by Michael Silva, the drummer. The groove is really jazzy – way jazzier than on some of Sammy's studio LPs from the time – and he runs through a range of material from pop tunes to standards, done in a style that's far different than you'd expect for the titles. The vocals are tight, heartfelt, but also given a professional little finesse that really makes them sparkle. Titles include "Ain't I", "Another Spring", "On A Clear Day", "As Long As She Needs Me", "Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home", "The Lady Is A Tramp", and 2 fantastic medleys with lots of jazzy songs. Heck, Dean Martin never got a chance to cut a double live album – and Frank really ever did one – so given that Sammy got a chance to do two of them, you've gotta figure the format really worked for him! This is the real Mr. Entertainment, and you owe it to yourself to hear him as he really was. LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 60s pressing! Cover has a small cutout hole.)
