Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer later date from tenor genius Charlie Rouse – one that's quite different than his famous 60s work with Thelonious Monk, but equally wonderful in its own sort of way! The tracks are open, relaxed, and nicely swinging – with Rouse at the head of a quartet that features Hugh ... read more CD

Capitol/Return To Analog (Canada), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Kinda Groovy, indeed – one of the most interesting records ever from pianist Jimmy Rowles – as it also features the pianist singing a bit, too – in that raspy voice of his we find totally charming!

The title makes this one sound like a batch of bachelor pad tunes, but the album itself is easily one of Pete Rugolo's best of the 50s – a really tremendous big band outing that's filled with all-star players – all in a groove that breaks Pete very firmly past his Kenton heritage!
