Shorty RogersShorty In Stereo (Martians Come Back) ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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.)

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWarm ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzStan Getz Vol 2 (10 inch LP – photo cover) ... LP
New Jazz/Prestige, Early 50s. Good+ ... $11.99
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
(Cover has light wear and a few small stains. Vinyl plays with some clicks & crackles.)

John GraasFrench Horn Jazz ... LP
Kapp, 1955. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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
(Original Kapp pressing. Cover has surface wear, small split on the top seam, and wide clear tape holding the spine.)

Woody HermanWoody Herman (Capitol) ... LP
Capitol, Late 40s. Very Good ... $3.99
Great work from Woody's late 40s years on Capitol Records – a time when he was one of the few bigger bandleaders who was open to really new ideas – working here with an amazing range of players who include Stan Getz, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Gene Ammons, Jimmy Giuffre, Serge Chaloff, Phil Urso, Conte Candoli, Dave McKenna, Bill Harris, Terry Gibbs, Shorty Rogers, and Lou Levy! 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
(Original yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some aging, half split top seam, and mostly split spine.)

Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All StarsJazz Rolls Royce (Omega pressing) ... LP
Omega, 1957. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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
(Deep groove pressing. Cover has a splitting on the top seam & a promo stamp.)

Leith StevensJazz Themes For Cops & Robbers ... LP
Coral, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $16.99
Leith Stevens doing what he did best in the 50s – serving up a variety of jazz-based crime and action themes – including a number pulled from his great score to the film Private Hell 36, plus other work from The Thin Man, M-Squad, Peter Gunn, and Perry Mason! About half the set is from Private Hell – done in a style that shifts easily from driving and edgey, to laidback and moody – really making the best of a range of strong players that include Shorty Rogers, Pete Candoli, John Graas, Bob Enevoldsen, Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper, Lennie Niehaus, and Bud Shank. Titles include "Private Hell 36", "Havana Interlude", "Easy Mood", "Peter Gunn", "Perry Mason", "Joshua", "Daddy Long Legs", and "Private Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Cy Touff, Richie Kamuca, Harry Edison, & OthersKeester Parade ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1962. Very Good ... $14.99
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
(Black & silver label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a half split top seam, with call letters in marker and some notes in pen on back.)

Wichita Train WhistleMike Nesmith Presents – The Wichita Train Whistle Sings ... LP
Dot, 1968. Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
An incredibly groovy album – filled with instrumental tracks that shift between funky big band and groovy 60s soundtrack – all arranged by Mike Nesmith and Shorty Rogers! The feel here is like that of some of Rogers' other groovy late 60s instrumental one-off albums – like his hot rod, dune buggy, or surf-orchestra sides – and Nesmith brings in a slightly cynical tone that manifests itself in the choice of some of the instrumentation for the tracks, and the overall setting of the record. Think Monkees instrumentals gone groovier, and you've got part of the picture – but there's also plenty of snippets of Sunset Strip hip and Warner Brothers longing for the past too! Titles include "While I Cried", "Don't Cry Now", "Tapioca Tundra", "Nine Times Blue", "Carlisle Wheeling", and "You Told Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the original die-cut cover, with split seams.)

✨✧ Perez PradoVoodoo Suite – Plus Six All Time Greats ... LP
RCA, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collaboration between Perez Prado and trumpeter Shorty Rogers – one in which Rogers' solos sparkle brilliantly over the top of Perez's tight Latin rhythms – all in a style that's as moody as it is evocative and rhythmic! Side one features the extended "Voodoo Suite" – a side-long track that builds nicely on rootsy Latin rhythms that are much freer than Prado's pop work of the 50s – and which features a growing jazz horizon at the edges, filled with players who include Bud Shank on alto and flute, Bob Cooper on tenor, Shelly Manne on drums, and Pete Candoli on trumpet – in a larger section underneath Shorty Rogers' solos. Side two features shorter tracks recorded a year later – a bit more in the standard Prado mode, but still with a really dynamic feel, and contributions from jazz players like Candoli and Rolf Erikson on trumpets, Willie Maiden on tenor, and Jay Hill on trombone. Titles include "Music Makers", "In The Mood", "St. James Infirmary", and "Jumpin At The Woodside". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)
