✨✧ Elmer Bernstein/Shorty Rogers & His GiantsMan With The Golden Arm – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Decca, 1955. Good+ ... $3.99
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 with deep groove. Cover has some pen on back.)

Shorty RogersShorty In Stereo (Martians Come Back) ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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

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.)

✨✧ Shorty RogersSwingin Nutcracker ... LP
RCA, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hip take on the famous score – played here with jazzy arrangements from Shorty Rogers, and a lineup that includes Frank Rosolino on trombone, Conte Candoli on trumpet, Art Pepper on alto, Richie Kamuca on tenor, and Bill Holman, Bud Shank, and Bill Perkins on additional reeds! There's also a cool sax quintet at one point – with Holman, Perkins, Kamuca, Harold Land, and Bill Hood. LP, Vinyl record album

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

Shelly ManneThree/Two ... LP
Contemporary, 1954. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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

Jack MontroseHorn's Full ... LP
RCA, 1958. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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.)

Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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.)
