Teddy Charles/Shorty RogersCollaboration West (OJC) ... LP
Prestige, 1953. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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+ ... $9.99
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
(Mono pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Four FreshmenFunny How Time Slips Away ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... $0.99
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".

✨✧ Carmen McRaePortrait Of Carmen ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent album from Carmen McRae – one of her hippest records ever, and a great set of vocal gems that often gets overlooked! Arrangements are by Benny Carter, Shorty Rogers, and Oliver Nelson – and the album's got a swinging groovy style that pushes Carmen past her straighter jazz vocal roots – into some hiply sophisticated territory that really shows her growing as a singer in the 60s. The album kicks off with an amazing reading of Tommy Wolf's "I'm Always Drunk In San Francisco", done by Carmen in a way that makes you know she owns the song – and then it moves through a compelling blend of compositions that includes "My Very Own Person", "Ask Any Woman", "Boy, Do I Have A Surprise For You", and "Elusive Butterfly". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green & blue label pressing. Cover has a split bottom seam & some residue on the back.)

Jack MontroseHorn's Full ... LP
RCA, 1958. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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.)

✨✧ June ChristyBig Band Specials ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Used ... Temporarily 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
(Mono rainbow label pressing. Cover has a split top seam & spine.)

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassChristmas Album ... LP
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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! LP, Vinyl record album
(Newly remastered version – nice and heavy!)
