✨✧ Charlie VenturaCharlie Ventura & His Band In Concert ... LP
GNP, 1949. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A perfect example of why the Charlie Ventura group was one of the most popular live acts on the west coast scene of it's day! Producer Gene Norman really manages to capture the charm of the group in all its glory – recorded live in a lineup that features Conte Candoli on trumpet, Bennie Green on trombone, and Boots Mussulli on alto – plus some great scatted vocals from the team of Jackie & Roy! The recording's got a natural, flowing quality that really gets at the liveness of the set – and the horns come together beautifully throughout – in that wonderful mix of bop and swing that was the Ventura trademark! Titles include "Boptura", "Flamingo", "Birdland", "Dark Eyes", "High On An Open Mike", and "Lullaby In Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s issue. Cover has the recording year written in pencil on back.)

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieNew Wave ... LP
Philips, 1962. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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 in the 60s. Rhythms are percolated by the piano of Schifrin, guitar of Bola Sete, bass of Chris White, and some well-chosen added percussion work – and the overall groove is one of the best American takes on the bossa jazz sound of the time, delivered with wonderful horn work from Dizzy on trumpet, Leo Wright on flute and alto, and Charlie Ventura on tenor! Even familiar tunes are transformed by the sound – and titles include "In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town", "Careless Love", "Taboo", "One Note Samba", "Pergunte Ao Joao", and "Chega de Saudade". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing – nice and clean. Cover is nice.)

✨✧ Jackie & RoyJackie & Roy (Savoy) ... LP
Savoy, 1948. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by Jackie & Roy – cut when the fab vocal duo was still in the company of Charlie Ventura, forging a bop harmony sound that was as groundbreaking as the early vocalese work of Jon Hendricks, Dave Lambert, or Annie Ross! The pair had a hip swinging style that was always great – with a strong talent for riffing vocally on a bebop tune, then shifting over for a serious interpretation of a moody ballad, and rolling back again into a hard uptempo number. This set has them in the company of some tight members from Ventura's group – including Charlie himself on tenor, Norman Faye on trumpet, and Benny Green on trombone. Titles include "Lonely Woman", "Pina Colada", "FYI", "Euphoria", and "Deed I Do". (Vocalists, Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing in a black and white cover.)
