Laurindo AlmeidaGuitar From Ipanema ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Breezy bossa nova – Hollywood 60s style! The album's one of the best cut for Capitol by guitarist Laurindo Almeida – and has a sweet groovy little style that features Laurindo's lovely guitar work over some lightly dancing small combo backings that include flute, harmonica, organ, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaViva Bossa Nova! ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Les BaxterSkins! - Bongo Party With Les Baxter ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy LP of bongo-oriented tracks conducted by Les Baxter for "young America" (or so says the label!) The overall feel is nice and jazzy, and the tracks have a nice snapping bongo sound. Tracks include "Reverberasia", "Bustin the Bongos", "Brazilian ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A 2LP set, released in the mid 60's as a "Capitol Record Club Exclusive" – and one that compiles some of Baxter's best work for the label.

Gordon JenkinsComplete Manhattan Tower ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A beautiful testament to the glory of New York in the postwar years – a concept album penned and conducted by Gordon Jenkins, as kind of a musical tribute to the city and its apartment culture! The core narrative is about a guy who moves to, discovers, and falls in love with and in New York ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Dean MartinCha Cha de Amor ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
Dean Martin does a batch of Latiny material, with cha cha cha orchestrations by Nelson Riddle. Not straight Latin stuff, but a very different take on Dino's style, and a cool way to hear him sing – even if it's not the right side of the Atlantic. A dozen tracks in all, including "Somebo ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

David McCallum (with David Axelrod)Music – It's Happening Now! ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
McCallum's third album for Capitol – and like the first, a genius batch of instrumental tunes that's graced with the talents of HB Barnum and David Axelrod! As beathead revivalists have shown, the album would be nothing without that pair, especially Axelrod – and McCallum's really just ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

George ShearingBlack & White Satin ... CD
Capitol/Razor & Tie, 1956/1959. Used ... $9.99
The satin Shearing sound is in perfect form here – backed by added strings and woodwinds conducted by Billy May – and key proof that Billy could come up with some richly subtle arrangements when he wanted! Most prominent instrumentation comes from George's piano, and the group's ... (Jazz, Now Sound) read more CD

✨✧ George ShearingShearing Bossa Nova ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A heavenly album, and easily one of our favorite George Shearing records of the 60s – thanks to some sweet bossa arrangements by a young Clare Fischer! Fischer's got a better ear for this groove than just about anyone else – and he beautifully mixes light woodwinds with bossa rhythms ... (Jazz, Now Sound) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tak ShindoBrass And Bamboo ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the best albums by Tak Shindo – a west coast Japanese composer/arranger who was one of the few exotica artists to actually have the cultural cred to the sound! The arrangements – as the title might imply – mix together jazzy Capitol swinging and some more Eastern-oriented ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Yma SumacLegend Of The Jivaro ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The notes say that the album is "the rare plum of authenticity". We don't know if we'd go that far, but we can tell you that the record features Yma performing songs of the legendary Jivaro headhunters! Supposedly, Yma learned them in her "South American jungle-home", but we ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Yma SumacLegend Of The Sun Virgin ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Early work from Yma Sumac – with that moody mix of other worldly vocals and semi-Latin instrumentation that made her a popular one with the early exotic crowd. Yma runs up and down the vocal scale, while Moises Vivanco leads the band in a set of crashing dramatic orchestrations with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

TartagliaTartaglian Theorem ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
Sweet and dreamy instrumental pop from John Andrews Tartaglia – an arranger we only know from a few late 60s sides at Capitol Records – all of which are pretty great! Tartaglia's got a style that's still heavy in mainstream 60s easy modes, but borrows a fair bit from the generation of ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFrom The Vaults Volume 2 – Vine Street Divas ... CD
Capitol, 1940s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
During the 1940s, Capitol Records recorded some of the best female vocal records of the decade – blending swing with jazz and bits of emerging R&B, to cut sides that still sound pretty darn great today, and which are often used to define our sense of the classic American girl singer. ...
