Capitol, 1967. Very Good ... $3.99
Bossa guitar, dreamy orchestrations, and a wonderful American take on the Brazilian sound of the 60s – served up with sparkling Capitol Records production in a set that's easily one of the greatest by guitarist Laurindo Almeida!

✨✧ David AxelrodSong Of Innocence (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Capitol, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A masterpiece! This is one of David Axelrod's most perfectly realized albums – and it's a brilliant batch of baroque arrangements, jazzy solos, and slightly subtle funky bits! The album contains the much-sampled song "Holy Thursday", but the whole thing has a very similar feel to ... (Jazz, Now Sound) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Les BaxterAfrican Jazz ... LP
Capitol/So Far Out (UK), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest, grooviest records we've ever heard from the great Les Baxter – and a real standout set, even amidst his other exotica albums for Capitol! This one really delivers on the "jazz" promised in the title – thanks to strong tenor solos from Plas Johnson, who ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Les BaxterConfetti ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A groovy Les Baxter album from the pre-exotica years – a set that showcases all the lively, jaunty styles that Les brought to his initial instrumental run on Capitol Records! The mix of sounds is as colorful as the title might imply – some Latin modes, wordless vocal passages, and ... read more CD

Les BaxterFruit Of Dreams (Ports Of Pleasure/The Sacred Idol) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy ... $3.99
2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD! The first half of the set features material from the album Ports Of Pleasure – a dreamy exploration of south sea ideals that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of Baxter's more percussive exotica albums, and ... read more CD

Capitol/El (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock

Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the better of the Webley Edwards pseudo-ethnographic albums, and one that features some haunting female voices that have a nice moody exotica quality.

Jackie GleasonCome Saturday Morning/How Sweet It Is For Lovers ... CD
Capitol/Vocalion (UK), 1966/1970. New Copy ... $16.99
Two unusual Jackie Gleason albums – back to back on a single CD! On Come Saturday Morning, Jackie Gleason steps nicely into the 70s – on a record that has the aging maestro still very much in the lush, laidback style of his classic albums of the 50s – but over a set of tunes that ... read more CD

Jackie GleasonLonesome Echo ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $1.99
A fantastic album – if only for the cover! The record features a rare cover image that's an obscure painting by Salvador Dali – and the back cover features a photo of Jackie and Dali shaking hands!

✨✧ Kenyon HopkinsContrasting Colors ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully jazzy backdrops from Kenyon Hopkins – an arranger we known mostly from soundtrack work, but who got an earlier start penning charts for records like these!

Larry HovisMy Heart Belongs To Only You ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Later to be of Hogan's Heroes fame, Larry Horvis recorded this LP of vocals with the orchestra of Jack Marshall for Capitol in the early 60's. The material's fairly standard, but Jack Marshall's always pretty sparkling with the arrangements, so the sound's pretty good. LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie & RoyGrass ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Don't miss this one! For years, we passed this one by, thinking it an impure version of the great jazz duo Jackie & Roy.

Peggy LeeBlues Cross Country ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Sealed ... $7.99
One of Peggy Lee's jazziest albums, thanks to some pretty darn smart arrangements by a young Quincy Jones! Quincy takes Peggy's great vocal style and gives it a nice extra umph, in the way that he did on similar vocal sessions from the same time (like Sinatra's famous "Fly Me to the Moon" ...

✨✧ Alvino ReyPing Pong! ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Alvion Rey always seems to get a little bit overlooked, but his band, led by a steel guitar that goes "wow-WOW-wow", sounds a lot like Esquivel's, as proven by the tracks on this LP. Lots of standards, but greatly pepped up and stretched out, in the Rey tradition. With "Aloha ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
