Shorty RogersShorty Rogers & His Giants ... LP
RCA, Early 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Excellent early west coast material – and some of the greatest work that Shorty Rogers ever put on record! Unlike some of Rogers' other sides for RCA, which were often a bit gimmicky or strangely-themed, this one's a straight grooving session of west coast jazz, played by some of the finest players in LA, all arranged by Rogers with the kind of razor sharp precision that made him one of the city's most exciting talents in the early days. Tracks include "Mambo Del Crow", "Morpo", "Powder Puff", "The Pesky Serpent", and "Diablo's Dance". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has split seams.)

✨✧ Elmer Bernstein/Shorty Rogers & His GiantsMan With The Golden Arm – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Decca, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest jazz soundtracks of all time! Elmer Bernstein wrote the score to Otto Preminger's chilling film version of Nelson Algren's book The Man With The Golden Arm – a sad tale of jazz, gambling, and heroin addiction on the streets of Chicago (not far from Dusty Groove, in fact!) – and in doing so, he came up with one of the first jazz soundtracks to really work strongly with a dramatic narrative. The film's striking theme is played in a number of variations, either with orchestral backing, or in small combo format by Shorty Rogers & His Giants, a crack west coast group that features work by Bud Shank, Shelly Manne, Bob Cooper, and Pete Candoli. The tracks work perfectly together as a suite of tracks, even without the images of the film – telling a tale of temptation, sadness, tragedy, and rebirth. Titles include "Clark Street", "Breakup", "The Fix", "Zosh", "Frankie Machine", and "Audition". Worth the price for the Saul Bass cover alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has a bit of pen on back.)

✨✧ Shorty RogersBlues Express (aka Big Shorty Rogers Express) ... LP
RCA (France), 1956. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
French reissue of this 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 that includes Art Pepper, Jimmy Giuffre and Bob Cooper through a bunch of short swinging tracks that really have an edge to them. The tracks were originally recorded for a 10" LP, and they're combined here with a few more that were recorded during another Rogers session in 1956. Titles include "Blues Express", "Coop The Graas", "Contours", "Tales Of An African Lobster", "Pink Squirrel", "Boar-Jibou", and "The Sweetheart Of Sigmund Freud". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Teddy Charles/Shorty RogersCollaboration West (OJC) ... LP
Prestige, 1953. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great vibes from the legendary Teddy Charles – a set that brings together some of his best early moments for Prestige Records! This full set combines two earlier 10" sessions recorded by Charles – both done in LA in 1953, in small group formations with Shorty Rogers on trumpet, Curtis Counce on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – plus Jimmy Giuffre on tenor on a few added tracks! The tunes have more of a west coast groove than some of Charles later 50s work – but his tone and approach still keeps things nice and edgey – filled with those great tones and colors that made Teddy one of the most inventive players on vibes at the time. The other west coast players definitely rise to the occasion, playing with an modern style that's greater than usual – and titles include "Variations On A Motive By Bud", "Wailing Dervish", "Further Out", "Boabalob 1 & 2", and "Margo".

Jesse BelvinJust Jesse Belvin ... LP
RCA, 1959. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Some of Jesse's smooth RCA vocal tracks, recorded in Hollywood with orchestrations by Shorty Rogers, Dennis Farnon, and Ray Martin. Nice mix of standards and pop stuff, like "Witchcraft", "Guess Who", "Alright, Okay, You Win", and "Funny". Sure, it's not the early R&B-ish stuff he cut his teeth on, but it's still pretty sweet, and some great LA vocal stuff. LP, Vinyl record album

Jack MontroseHorn's Full ... LP
RCA, 1958. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great set, and one of the few obscure sides of west coast jazz from Jack Montrose (not to be confused with east coast player JR Montrose). Shorty Rogers supervised the session, and the album features some open-ended tracks done in quintet format that are similar to some of Shorty's best work for RCA in this mode. Jack heads up 2 different groups on the set – but they both have a vibes (Red Norvo) and guitar (Barney Kessel or Jim Hall) lineup that really gives the record an unusual sound for an LA cool jazz set at the time. Titles include "The Horn's Full", "Headline", "True Blue", "Solid Citizen", "Dark Angel", "This Little House", and "Rosanne". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Spanish pressing, on Fresh Sounds. Cover has some light wear.)

Dave recreates the sound of some hip bands – those of Lester Young, Miles Davis, Shorty Rogers, Raymond Scott, Gerry Mulligan, and others – on tunes that include "Mountain Greenery", "Walking Shoes", "At The Codfish Ball", "A Smooth One", "Then I'll Be Happy", and "Popo". The group includes Art Pepper on alto, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Bob Enevoldsen on trombone, and Marty Paich on piano. LP, Vinyl record album

Dave PellPell Of A Time ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good- ... $7.99
A set that's a bit looser than some of Dave Pell's other work of the 50s – with tracks that are slightly longer than usual, but still done in that wonderfully fluid Pell groove! Dave has a way here of keeping things tight, but letting the soloists step out strongly on their own – getting great work from Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone sax, Tommy Tedesco on guitar, Marty Paich on piano, and Bobby Burgess on trombone – all players who really pack a lot into a little for the set. Shorty Rogers supervised the record, and you can definitely feel his influence on the groove – and tracks include "Jazz Goes To Siwash", "Suze Blues", "Grey Flannel", "Angel Eyes", "G Tune", "Cameo", and "Them There Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split bottom seam.)

✨✧ Four FreshmenFunny How Time Slips Away ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant harmony vocals by the Four Freshman! A jaunty 1964 session that has the Freshmen moving into territory they'd explore more deeply on their work for Liberty Records – expanding into a range of new styles for the 60s, and working here with some nicely groovy arrangements from Jimmie Haskell and Shorty Rogers! There's some nice use of electric bass and guitar on a few tracks – giving them a bit more of a romp than usual – and a few others feature some nicely-recorded tinkling piano that trips alongside the vocals with a breezy 60s edge, including a few with country western tinges. Titles include "Don't Make Me Sorry", "My Baby's Gone", "Charade", "Wake The Town & Tell The People", "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Hold Me", "We've Got A World That Swings", and "Tears In Our Eyes".

✨✧ Howard RobertsSomething's Cookin' ... LP
Capitol, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy! The record's a hip batch of jazzy tracks played by the great Howard Roberts, caught here at the height of his 60s groovy bossa style, and playing with his regular combo plus backing by a larger group of horns. Jack Marshall and Shorty Rogers helped Howard with the arrangements, and the record has that groovy LA jazz sound that graced the best of the Capitol sides of the time. Charles Kynard gets in some nice organ, Howard plays a nicely-toned Epiphone, and titles include "Bluesette", "The Lonesome Cowboy", "Charade", "Maniac", and "Recado Bossa Nova". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original rainbow label pressing.)
