Shorty RogersChances Are It Swings ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good ... $14.99
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 some wear.)

Shorty RogersShorty In Stereo (Martians Come Back) ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Kind of an unusual variation on the Martians Come Back album – done during a time when record labels almost saw their stereo releases as a completely different product! The tracks aren't the same entirely as Martians – although the album does include "Astral Alley" and "Chant Of The Cosmos" – plus "Dickie's Dream", "Baklava Bridge", and "Serenade In Sweets" – all in stunning early stereo! LP, Vinyl record album
(Green & blue spindle label with deep groove. Cover has a small cutout hole, sticker remnants on front, and an old price sticker on back.)

Shorty RogersShorty Rogers & His Giants ... LP
RCA, Early 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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.)

✨✧ Shorty Rogers & Andre PrevinCollaboration (Jim Flora cover) ... LP
RCA, 1954. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare mid 50s collaboration between pianist Andre Previn and trumpeter Shorty Rogers – an instrumental collaboration between the pair – one that's mostly set up in the mode of Rogers style of the time with his Giants group – but which also really sparkles tremendously with the addition of Previn's brightly-colored piano lines! We'd honestly never thought that highly of Andre's work until hearing this set – and his presence here really adds a new dimension to the Shorty Rogers groove of the 50s – a set of tones that spring out wonderfully, and really illuminate the set! Other players include Bud Shank, Milt Bernhart, Jimmy Giuffre, and Bob Cooper – on 13 titles that include "It's Delovely", "Heat Wave", "40 Below", "Claudia", "General Cluster", "Everything I've Got", "Call For Cole", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some aging.)

Stan GetzStan Getz Vol 2 (10 inch LP – photo cover) ... LP
New Jazz/Prestige, Early 50s. Good+ ... $24.99
Sublime early Getz all the way through – material that shows why even right out of the gate, Stan's sound on the tenor was one to be reckoned with! Side one features a quartet with Al Haig on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – all giving Stan plenty of room to dominate with tenor on tunes that include "What's New", "There's A Small Hotel", "Too Marvelous For Words", and "I've Got You Under My Skin". Side two features a different larger group – a modern ensemble with plenty of bop touches, and players that include Terry Gibbs on vibes, Shorty Rogers on trumpet, Earl Swope on trombone, and George Wallington on piano. Titles include "T & S", "Terry's Tune", and "Speedway". LP, Vinyl record album

John GraasFrench Horn Jazz ... LP
Kapp, 1955. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great 50s LPs by John Graas, one of the few French horn players who brought the instrument in to the jazz genre. Like his other recordings, this set is very much in the chamber jazz style, with numbers alternating between his octet featuring Jimmy Giuffre, Shorty Rogers, Shelly Manne and Bud Shank, and a quintet with Jack Montrose, Gerald Wiggins, Walter Clark, and Larry Bunker. A dozen tracks in all, including "Lady Like", "Egypt", "Argyles", "Blue Haze", "Pyramid", "6/4 Trend", "Not Exactly", "Cordova", "Be My Guest", "Frappe", "Bananera", and "Sequence". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonConcert In Progressive Jazz (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, 1947/1951. Very Good ... $3.99
Incredible work – and one of Kenton's greatest records! This "concert" brings together material perfectly paired to demonstrate Kenton's keen talent for modern jazz that still swings heavily! Players on the set include Art Pepper, Bob Cooper, Bud Shank, and Shorty Rogers – and the tunes are short little paintings in sound – building off the Kenton styles of the swing years, but moving towards the more abstract styles of later years, yet still managing to keep their groove. The titles alone give a great idea of the sound – and tunes include "Elegy For Alto", Lament", "Monotony", and "Impressionism". LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly ManneThree (10 inch LP) ... LP
Contemporary, 1954. Near Mint- ... $38.99
Excellent early work from Shelly Manne – an early 10" session that featured Manne on drums, Shorty Rogers on trumpet, and Jimmy Giuffre on tenor, clarinet, and baritone. The sound is very free, but still swinging with a strong rhythmic pulse – and in a way, it presages some of Giuffre's later experimental trio recordings for Atlantic. The trio work their way – bass and piano-less – through tunes that include "Pas De Trois", "Flip", "Abstract No 1", and "Steeplechase". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – in nice shape! Cover has a bit of aging, but is intact, with no splits at all.)

Shelly ManneThree/Two ... LP
Contemporary, 1954. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A 12" LP that brings together 2 different earlier 10" sessions by Manne – groundbreaking work in a freer mode than most of what was going on in LA during the mid 50s! Side one features material from The Three – a 10" session that featured Manne on drums, Shorty Rogers on trumpet, and Jimmy Giuffre on tenor, clarinet, and baritone. The trio work their way – bass and piano-less – through tunes that include "Pas De Trois", "Flip", "Abstract No 1", and "Steeplechase". Side two features material from The Two – an even freer session, with Manne on drums and Russ Freeman on piano – no other accompaniment, and sounding quite revolutionary for the time! Titles include "Billie's Bounce", "The Sound Effects Manne", "Everything Happens To Me", and "Speak Easy". LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing.)

Shelly Manne/Bill RussoDeep People (aka Jazz Composers Workshop) (BYG) ... LP
Savoy/BYG (France), Mid 50s. Sealed ... $6.99
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
(Shrinkwrap has some tears.)

Dave PellPell Of A Time ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good- ... $3.99
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.)

Leith StevensJazz Themes From The Wild One (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Decca/Not Now, 1955. Sealed (reissue)... $11.99
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".

✨✧ Cy Touff, Richie Kamuca, Harry Edison, & OthersKeester Parade ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1962. Very Good ... $19.99
Think what you like of the title on this one – but it's one of the better sessions to ever come out of the west coast scene. The record's got some of the best post-early 50s arrangements (by either Johnny Mandel, Cy Touff, or Richie Kamuca) – and the tracks are nicely off-kilter, in the vein of some of Shorty Rogers work from 10 years before. Other players on the session include Russ Freeman, Pete Jolly, Chuck Flores, and Leroy Vinnegar – and titles include "Prez-ence", "Primative Cats", "TNT", and "It's Sand Man". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWarm ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic record from the late 60s years of Herb Alpert – a time when the trumpeter was really opening up his sound, and starting to hit some of the same cool styles of his other great acts on the A&M label! Gone are the trademark Cali-Mex arrangements of the early Tijuana Brass records – and in their place are these soaring, soulful styles that draw heavily from the late 60s changes in Brazilian music, American soundtracks, and jazz! Shorty Rogers helped a bit with the charts, and you can definitely hear his cool touches in the mix – and the trumpet solos are nicely changed up from previous records too. Herb does a great job with Nilsson's excellent cut "Without Her", and the band grooves nicely on Brazil cuts "The Sea Is My Soil" and "Zazueira", plus "Pretty World", "To Wait For Love", "Sandbox", "Marjorine", and "The Continental".

✨✧ June ChristyBig Band Specials ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(Stereo rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Stan KentonInnovations In Modern Music Vol 1 ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 Chico O'Farrill's haunting "Cuban Episode", with vocals and conga by Carlos Vidal – plus the haunting "Conflict", with a June Christy wordless vocal, and the titles "Trajectories", "Incident In Jazz", and "Solitaire".

The group includes Art Pepper on alto, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Bob Enevoldsen on trombone, and Marty Paich on piano. LP, Vinyl record album
