Shorty RogersCool & Crazy (10 inch LP) ... LP
RCA, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $7.99
Classic West Coast session, long hailed by critics as one of the best to come out of the LA scene. Shorty Rogers leads a crack group of players (Art Pepper, Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper) through a bunch of short swinging tracks that really have an edge to them. One of the best things Rogers ever did, released here on the original RCA 10" LP, in beautiful shape! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and aging.)

Shorty RogersJazz Waltz (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $38.99
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 RogersSwinging Mr Rogers ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A standout set from Shorty – tightly arranged numbers performed by a quartet that includes Jimmy Giuffre, Pete Jolly, Curtis Counce, and Shelly Manne – all working with Shorty in perfect west coast form! Despite the length of the tunes, the overall feel is similar to Rogers' excellent Wherever The Five Winds Blow album for RCA – and makes the record a great set, done without any gimmicks or tricks – and enough of the modern touch still left from Rogers' first few years on record. Titles include "Martians Go Home", "Trickleydidlier", "Not Really The Blues", and "Michele's Meditation". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing.)

Shorty Rogers & His GiantsRe-Entry ... LP
Atlas (Japan), 1983. Near Mint- ... $11.99
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.)

Shorty Rogers/Kenny RogersFools ... LP
Reprise, 1970. Sealed ... $2.99
Kenny Rogers gets bigger billing on the cover, but the real treat is the instrumentals by Shorty Rogers – including "Cajun Source", "Take A Walk", "Up Yours", "Someone Who Cares", and "Anais & Mathew". LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap has sticker remnants. Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Shorty RogersShorty Rogers Courts The Count ... LP
RCA, 1955. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Shorty Rogers courts Count Basie – but he does so in a way that's definitely all his own! The material may have Basie roots, but the overall execution is Shorty at his early 50s best – in a way that makes the album one of his strongest for RCA at the time – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the great run of records! The lineup is filled with well-chosen players who fall together wonderfully under Shorty's leadership – Buck Clayton, Pete Candoli, and Harry Edison on trumpets – and reed work from Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper, and Bud Shank. The set swings with all the power of the Basie band, yet has all the wonderful arrangements we love from Rogers – and titles include "Basie Eyes", "Doggin Around", "Jump For Me", "Over & Out", and "Walk, Don't Run". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono RCA Victor pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear, aging, and clear tape on the spine.)

✨✧ Shorty RogersWizard Of Oz & Other Harold Arlen Songs ... LP
RCA, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty darn great record, and a lot more swinging than you'd expect! The basic theme is the Wizard Of Oz – but Shorty makes the tunes groove way way more than they ever did, and thanks to help from hip players like Jimmy Giuffre, Herb Geller, and Bud Shank, the tracks have loads of breakway moments that are nice and jazzy! In way, working in this sort of tightly restricted set was a great way to get Rogers out of his mid 50s slump – when he was writing himself into a corner with the same sort of chamber jazz numbers all the time. In this sort of album, he's already got the basic pattern – and is free to really open up the band and the charts with the sort of creativity that he began his career with. Titles include "The Jitterbug", "Over The Rainbow", "We're Off To See The Wizard", and "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Bud Shank & Shorty RogersCalifornia Concert ... LP
Contemporary, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title and cover are an homage to the Pacific Jazz label live dates from LA in the 50s – and the music here does a good job of following suit as well! Altoist Bud Shank and trumpeter Shorty Rogers are reunited beautifully in an open-ended live setting – the kind of date that really recalls some of the music Bud, Shorty, and some of their contemporaries recorded many years back – although with perhaps a rhythmic undercurrent here that shows new depths in jazz explored during subsequent decades. Remaining group members include George Cables on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Sherman Ferguson on drums – and titles include "Kansas City Tango", "Makin Whoopee", "It's Sand Man", "Aurex", and "Mia".

Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All StarsJazz Rolls Royce (Lighthouse pressing) ... LP
Lighthouse, 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
(Yellow label pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Leith StevensJazz Themes From The Wild One (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Decca/DOL, 1955. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic sides of Hollywood jazz, written for the early Brando biker flick The Wild One! Leith Stevens wrote, arranged, and conducted the material – and the players on the album include Jimmy Giuffre, Bud Shank, Bob Cooper, Shorty Rogers, Shelly Manne, and other likely suspects. The tracks have a stark harsh sound, and are very much in the tradition of scores like Man With The Golden Arm and I Want To Live. Titles include "Beetle", "Blues for Brando", "Chino", and "Hotshoe". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram EU pressing on red vinyl.)
