Shorty RogersBossa Nova ... LP
Reprise, 1962. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A real standout from the great Shorty Rogers – and a smoking set that has him turning his many talents towards the world of bossa nova! By the time of this set, Shorty was as great an arranger as he was a trumpeter – really one of the go-to guys around LA for hipper soundtracks and vocal dates – and he really shows off his skills on a set of lively arrangements that pop and sparkle a lot more than other American bossa jazz outings of this nature! The set features lots of acoustic guitar and percussion – and bold trumpet and flugelhorn solos by Shorty – on titles that include "Samba Do Lorinho", "Samba Triste", "O Amore E A Rosa", "Pao De Assucar", "So Um Amor", and "O Menino Desce O Morro". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color mono pressing. Cover has clear tape on the top seam, a punched hole in one corner, and some splitting on the bottom seam.)

Shorty RogersShorty Rogers Meets Tarzan ... LP
MGM, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Quite possibly our favorite Shorty Rogers album ever – an incredible soundtrack that's unlike most of his other work of the time! The record features Shorty's score for the film Tarzan The Ape Man (and a cover that has Shorty being carried in the arms of same!) – and as you might guess from the setting, there's a heck of a lot of drums on the album – a highly rhythmic, junglistic approach that's carried off by 5 drummers who are clearly using a lot of Latin percussion too. Shorty tops them off with a great horn sextion that includes Don Fagerquist, Buddy Childers, Bud Shank, Frank Rosolino, Bill Perkins, Bob Cooper, and Bill Holman – and the reed players really make for the best moments on the set – stepping out in snakey lines that complement the driving rhythms nicely, all pushed along their path by the rest of the horns. The record's got a blasting, savage quality that's really great – jungle jazz at its best, and carried off perfectly throughout! Side two features the extended "Tarzanic Suite" – and other tracks include "The Elephants Wail", "Los Barbaros", "Paradise Found", and "Trapped". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a piece of clear tape on the bottom seam.)

Shorty RogersSwinging Mr Rogers ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good ... $6.99
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 with deep groove.)

✨✧ Shorty RogersAfro-Cuban Influence ... LP
RCA, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful album of Latin grooves from Shorty! The record is one of his best, and features a whopping array of percussionists – including Carlos Vidal, Modesto Duran, and Mike Pacheco all coming into play with Shorty's west coast style of arrangements, tweaked greatly here to pick up an Afro Cuban sound. Players include Bud Shank, Bill Holman, Frank Rosolino, Herb Geller, and Bob Cooper – and the album is very similar to Perez Prado's Voodoo Suite album, which was also recorded for RCA around the same time. Includes the cuts "Un Poco Loco", "Manteca", "Viva Puente", and the extended suite "Wuayacanjanga". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear, aging, splitting and pen on the back.)

✨✧ Shorty RogersMartians Come Back! ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Shorty Rogers' greatest records – and a very nice set of tight west coast arrangements that really shows off the Rogers sense of sparkle and swing – a vibe that definitely comes through in the famous cover image too! Shorty wrote nearly all of the tracks, and the writing's a great example of the good side of the west coast style – when the tightness of arranging is used to bring out the best elements in the players, and bend them around in some nice twists and turns, with good solos, and lots of nice little surprising bits. And in this case, the players are all great – with Jimmy Giuffre and Bud Shank on reeds, Pete Candoli and Don Fagerquist on trumpets, and Lou Levy on piano. Titles include "Lotus Bud", "Martians Come Back", "Chant Of The Cosmos", and "Astral Alley". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has moderate wear, aging and writing on the back.)

✨✧ Shorty RogersModern Sounds (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, 1951. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal west coast work from the start of the 50s – a groundbreaking 10" album that showed the best early talents of trumpeter Shorty Rogers! The group here is Rogers at his hippest – before a bigger rise to 50s fame, and right at the start of a great run as a leader and arranger on his own. The Giants combo here features Art Pepper on alto, Jimmy Giuffre on tenor, John Graas on French horn, and Hampton Hawes on piano – all playing with a style that's tight, yet still has plenty of swing, and a lot more room for individual group voices than other later arrangers who tried to cop Shorty's style! All tracks are extremely playful, but without sounding gimmicky – and tunes include "Four Mothers", "Didi", "Sam & The Lady", "Over The Rainbow", "Apropos" and "Popo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small peeled spot on one corner and an address label on back. Label has an address label.)

✨✧ Shorty RogersShorty Rogers & His Giants (10 inch LP) ... LP
RCA, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Original black label pressing.)

✨✧ Shelly Manne/Jimmy Giuffre/Shorty Rogers/Bill RussDeep People (aka Jazz Composers Workshop) ... LP
Savoy, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare counterpart to the Charles Mingus album on Savoy of the same name – an even more obscure date that features some equally modern music! The album features a shifting array of players throughout – small modern groups on side one, with Bill Russo on trombone, Conte Candoli on trumkpet, Shorty Rogers on trumpet, Art Pepper on alto, Jimmy Giuffre on tenor, Bob Gordon on baritone, and Shelly Manne on drums – all playing in modes that are similar to some of the small group Kenton offshoot material for other labels, or to some of Rogers' important early sides for Capitol and RCA. Titles on this side include "Deep People", "Count On Rush Street", "Slightly Brightly", "Princess Of Evil", and "All Of Me" – which features a vocal by Shelly! Side two features a bigger group arranged by Russo, and featuring a range of smaller players, plus a bit of vocals from Shelby Davis. Titles include "Ennui", "Sposin", "Cookie", "Cathy", and "An Esthete On Clark Street". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing. Cover has a small split in the top seam.)

Bud ShankBud Shank – Shorty Rogers/Bill Perkins ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Poor ... $0.99
A west coast classic – featuring some of Bud Shank's best small group work of the mid 50s! The album has Shank playing in two different groups, one with Shorty Rogers on trumpet, one with the great Bill Perkins on tenor – and we'll be honest in saying that Perkins' tone is incredible, a perfect match for Shank's well-honed sound of the time – blown with a nice edge that really deepens the sound of the record – a slight sense of soul that goes past traditional west coast modes, and really fits Shank's sometimes-edgey playing. Rogers is still pretty great too – and the casual setting of the album is a refreshing change from some of his more over-arranged work for other labels at the time! Titles include "Casa De Luz", "Jasmine", "Left Bank", "Paradise", "Fluted Columns", and "Royal Garden Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label pressing with deep groove. NOTE – Vinyl is in POOR condition. Cover is essentially the front & back panel taped together at the seams, with discoloration from age, and light stains.)

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassChristmas Album ... LP
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
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!

Jesse BelvinJust Jesse Belvin ... LP
RCA, 1959. Very Good+ ... $24.99
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

✨✧ June ChristyBig Band Specials ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good- ... $0.99
A very different album than usual for June Christy – one of her last for Capitol, and a very swinging, upbeat affair! As the title implies, June's singing a set of tunes made famous during the glory days of the big bands – tracks associated with Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, and others – all given a nice reworking here by June, in a style that's got a hipper, swinging California kind of groove! Arrangers on the set are Bill Holman, Bob Cooper, and Shorty Rogers – and they all keep things light and above board – shaking away the bluer tones and quieter moods of some of June's other records, taking her vocals back to the highly swinging style that first brought her fame in the 40s. Titles include "Frenesi", "Time Was", "Good Bye", "Night In Tunisia", "Stompin At the Savoy", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "Skyliner". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has some wear.)

Tight west coast jazz, arranged and led by Pell on tenor, and featuring work by Don Fagerquist, Marty Paich, Ray Sims, and Tommy Tedesco. Shorty Rogers supervised the session, and it's got a very similar feel to some of his RCA sides at the time. As you might guess from the title, the tracks are "western-themed" ones – like "I'm An Old Cowhand", "Wagon Wheels", "Cool Water", and "South Of The Border". Nice cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album
