Shorty RogersChances Are It Swings ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good- ... $5.99
One of Shorty's best albums for RCA, and an album of hard-driving jazz by The Giants that's comparable to some of the great work they did in the soundtrack to Man With The Golden Arm. The group includes Shorty, Bil Holman, Richie Kamuca, Paul Horn, Bud Shank, and the Candoli Brothers – and titles (all written by Robert Allen) includes "Lilac Chiffon", "Who Needs You", "No Such Luck", "Chances Are", "Very Special Love", and "Teacher, Teacher". Very swinging, as the title says! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing, with deep groove. Cover has moderate wear, splitting & a peeled spot from sticker removal.)

Shorty RogersJazz Waltz (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... About March 1, 2018
Don't think "waltz music", think "modal jazz" – because the version of jazz waltz that Shorty Rogers serves up here is a great precursor to the great grooves to come on the European scene – especially the work from the artists at MPS Records! Tunes all have this great rhythmic pulse – a way of leaping into a groove that has the piano and bass dancing together wonderfully – often with some cool vibes from Emil Richards, and loads of great reed lines from Bud Shank and Paul Horn! Some tracks feature a small combo, some feature a larger group – and the whole thing is wonderful – with energy that almost rivals the Clarke Boland Big Band with Gigi Campi. Titles include "Be As Children", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Jazz Waltz", "Terrence's Farewell", and "A Taste Of Honey". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shorty Rogers & His GiantsRe-Entry ... LP
Atlas (Japan), 1983. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Early 80's Japanese-only session featuring a reunion of some of Rogers' old bandmates in his legendary Giants ensemble. Rogers heads up the group on flugelhorn, and other players include Bob Cooper, Bill Perkins, Pete Jolly, Bud Shank, and Shelly Manne. The set's got a nice straight ahead sound, with a style that's very much in keeping with Rogers' 50's RCA sessions. Titles include "Bunny", "Walk, Don't Run", "The Goof & I", "Powder Puff", and "Short Stop". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert and obi.)

Ernie AndrewsSoul Proprietor ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great little set from Ernie Andrews – sounding quite different than on most of his other work! Although Ernie's best known as a jazz vocalist, he steps out here in a mode that's got a heck of a lot of 60s soul – working with arrangements by Shorty Rogers in a style that's got plenty of the same feel as Lou Rawls' best work at Capitol from the same time. The tunes are all nice and jaunty, grooving along with a hip and well-punctuated approach to the material that brings in plenty of light funk – and titles include "Crackerbox Livin", "More Than Ever Before", "Charms Of The Arms Of Love", "Knock On Wood", "Walk Tall", "Go To Hell", and "You Can Make It Baby".

Barney KesselBreakfast At Tiffany's ... LP
Reprise, 1962. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the grooviest albums ever recorded by guitarist Barney Kessel – a sweet reworking of Henry Mancini's fabulous music for Breakfast At Tiffanys! The set's got a warm feel and more than a bit of bossa nova inspiration – similar to some of the other Kessel and Shorty Rogers projects for Reprise at the time – and the group features some wicked reed work from Bud Shank and Paul Horn, both of whom add some great color to the set – and make it way more than just another trio date from Kessel! The whole thing's wonderful – filled with favorites from the Mancini songbook – titles that include "Something For Cat", "Sally's Tomato", "Mr Yunioshi", "The Big Blowout", "Hub Caps & Tail Lights", "Breakfast At Tiffany's", "Latin Golightly", "Loose Caboose", and "Moon River Cha Cha". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color stereo pressing. Cover has light surface wear and a mostly split spine.)

Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All StarsJazz Rolls Royce (Omega pressing) ... LP
Omega, 1957. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great little record – and one that gets past the over-used "Howard Rumsey Lighthouse" name, to move into a set of 50s west coast jazz at its best! The core group features Bob Cooper, Frank Rosolino, Stu Williamson, Stan Levy, Victor Feldman, and Rumsey – and for the session, they're joined by 10 additional players, including Larry Bunker, Red Callender, Milt Bernhart, and Pete Candoli. The sound is a bit like Shorty Rogers larger group sides with The Giants – but the tunes are all pretty long, 5 minutes or more, and there's a bit more room for open solos from the best players in the group. Williamson frankly sounds better than we even remember hearing on his own albums, and Bunker adds in some great work on vibes. Titles include "Mambo Del Quado", "The Clown's Dance", "Prelude To The Queen", and "Bruinville My Bruinville". LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove pressing. Cover has a splitting on the top seam & a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Shelly ManneMy Son The Jazz Drummer! ... LP
Contemporary, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the stranger examples of a very short-lived jazz trend – the "jazz meets folk" style that appeared on a handful of albums in the early 60s. This one features Shelly Manne exploring his Jewish heritage on a host of Israeli and Jewish folk tunes, played with a group that includes Shorty Rogers, Teddy Edwards, Victor Feldman, and Al Viola. The overall sound is pretty cool – as the tracks have an angular jaunty approach that lends itself well to Manne's dexterous drumming, and a lingering sadness that brings out a nice tone in Edwards' tenor. Titles include "Zamar Nodad", "Bokrei Lachish", "Orchah Bamidbar", "My Yiddishe Momme", and "Tzena". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassChristmas Album ... LP
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A beautiful Holiday classic from Herb – recorded for A&M during his glory years, and done in the core Tijuana Brass style, but with some added arrangements on voices and strings by Shorty Rogers! The album's worth it alone for Herb's great take on the Bacharach groover "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" – but it also includes the tasty track "Las Mananitas", plus the holiday favorites "Winter Wonderland", "Jingle Bells", "The Christmas Song", "Sleigh Ride", "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" and "Jingle Bell Rock". 10 tracks in all, the perfect backdrop for the holiday office party! LP, Vinyl record album
(Newly remastered version – nice and heavy!)
