✨✧ June ChristyCool School/Do Re Mi ... CD
Capitol (UK), 1960/1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 rare gems from June Christy's later years on Capitol – back to back on one CD! The Cool School is easily one of June's greatest albums – even if it is an unusual one! The format here is a far cry from the boozier modes of Christy's earlier career – as the tunes on the set are mostly children's songs, redone as jazzier numbers by June and the Joe Castro Quartet – the latter of whom provides some rare small combo backing for Christy, in a lightly dancing mode that really makes the album work! And while you might expect the children's tunes to be simple-minded or cloying, June's delivery of the material unlocks the secret sense of loss, sadness, and longing that's often buried in the songs – completely transforming familiar numbers in a way that really leaves us breathless! Titles include "Kee Mo Ky Mo", "Small Fry", "Swinging On A Star", "Give A Little Whistle", "The Magic Window", "Baby's Birthday Party", and "Aren't You Glad You're You". Do Re Mi is another unusual session for Christy – one done in tight collaboration with husband Bob Cooper! Bob and June work together here to interpret work from the musical Do Re Mi – with June singing about half the tunes, and Bob playing the other half instrumentally – on tenor, and working with a smaller group that includes Bud Shank, Conte Candoli, and Buddy Collette. The format's got a fresh feel that changes things up nicely from June's other Capitol albums – and although things are a bit lighter than usual, they're still very much in the best Christy/Capitol mode! Vocal tunes include "Cry Like The Wind", "I Know About Love", "Asking For You", "Make Someone Happy", and "All You Need Is A Quarter" – alongside instrumentals that include "All Of My Life", "Fireworks", "It's Legitimate", and "Ambition".

Stan KentonInnovations Orchestra ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
A brilliant collection of work from Stan Kenton – recordings from his Innovations Orchestra, the groundbreaking group from the years 1950 and 1951, which featured players that include Art Pepper, Bob Cooper, Shorty Rogers, and Laurindo Almeida! The work features Kenton in some of his most modern modes – taking the broad range of colors and tones he first started forging in the late 40s, and fusing them onto some modern jazz ideals of the early 50s. The result is some incredible music that still sounds extremely fresh today – tracks that still have a swinging rhythm and jazz-based solos, but which also have a keen ear towards the 20th Century Classical Music of mid century. Titles include "Solitaire", "Soliloquy", "June Christy", "Shelly Manne", "House Of Strings", "Cello-logy", "Art Pepper", "Halls Of Brass", "In Veradero", "Blues In Riff", and "Coop's Solo". 2CDs, great notes, and 30 tracks in all!
