✨✧ Vince GuaraldiAlma-Ville ... LP
Warner, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great great stuff – one of the grooviest (and rarest) albums by lyrical piano maestro Vince Guaraldi! The record was cut during Vince's late 60s hipster phase – and it combines work on piano with a bit of electric playing, plus hip LA arrangements that include drums by Dom Um Romao, guitar by Herb Ellis, and added percussion by Rubens Bassini. Tracks are mostly originals – short groovers and sing-song numbers, a lot cooler than some of Vince's earlier work – all dancing along in a sweetly breezy groove that makes for a heck of a delightful little album! Titles include "Rio From The Air", "Cristo Redentor", "Uno Y Uno", "Detained In San Ysidro", "Jambos", "Alma Ville", and "The Masked Marvel". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, a 3" split on the spine, and some light wear.)

✨✧ Vince GuaraldiVince Guaraldi Trio ... LP
Fantasy, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early genius from pianist Vince Guaraldi – recorded years before his Peanuts fame, but proof that he was an extremely original talent even at the start! The setting is a trio one – and Vince is playing with longtime partner Eddie Duran on guitar, plus Dean Reilly on bass – and the lack of drums really unlocks the fluid, lyrical side of Guaraldi's playing – his great talent for pianistic colors, and strong ability to paint little scenes in sound. Even though most of the numbers are standards by other writers, Vince really takes off with the tunes – letting only the basic melody structure the tune's beginning, then really flying free on the keys. Duran's guitar work is nice too – hard and raspy one minute, but light and gentle the next – and titles include "Never Never Land", "Chelsea Bridge", "Sweet & Lovely", "Ossobucco", "3 Coins In A Fountain", and "Fenwyck Farfel".

✨✧ Vince Guaraldi & Bola SeteVince Guaraldi, Bola Sete & Friends ... LP
Fantasy, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums ever from the pair of Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete – a set of longer-than-usual tunes that really lets both players open up nicely! The setting is quite spare – just bass and drums behind Bola's guitar and Vince's piano – although there's a bossa/samba vibe to the work, there's also a more fluid sort of groove too – that lightly lyrical soul that always showed up in Guaraldi's own work of the 60s. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Mambossa", "Moon Rays", and "Casaba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Brown label pressing.)

✨✧ Stan GetzStan Getz (Prestige – early singles/Stan Getz With Cal Tjader) ... LP
Prestige, 1949/1950/1958. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A 2LP set that compiles early recordings made by Getz for Prestige – about half of them titles that were issued on early singles, combined with material from the album Stan Getz With Cal Tjader. The early singles feature a few tunes with the "brothers" style sound – Brew Moore, Allen Eager, Zoot Sims, and Al Cohn on tenor with Stan – plus some other quartet sides. The Cal Tjader album is killer record from the late 50s – and one that hints at all the sides Stan would take in later years: his bossa sides, his vibes quartet with Gary Burton, and the playful lyricism of his recordings with Chick Corea. The set was recorded in San Francisco, when Stan had that great bassist Scott LaFaro in his group, and when he was brought into the studio by Fantasy to meet with local talents like Cal Tjader, Eddie Duran, and Vince Guaraldi. Billy Higgins is also added on drums, giving the set a lively songlike sound that's just great. The group works incredibly well together, and it's a shame they only really gelled for this rare non-Verve session. Titles include "Big Bear", "Crow's Nest", "Lady In Red", "Prezervation", "Five Brothers", "Crazy Chords", "Long Island Sound", "My Buddy", and "Ginza Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pete JollySweet September ... LP
AVA, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great work from one of the grooviest pianists of the 60s – a player who could always keep things lively and swinging, even in a small combo session! The album's one of Pete Jolly's gems for the Ava label – a follow-up to his semi-hit Little Bird, and like that one, a record done with some slight additional help from Howard Roberts on a few tracks. But this time around, Roberts' work is only on a few of the titles – leaving Pete's core trio to take over most of the grooves themselves, building strongly from warmly rolling rhythms by Chuck Berghofer on bass and Larry Bunker on drums, topped by Jolly's surprisingly soulful lines on piano – all in a blend that reminds us of the great balance between lyricism and groove we always find in the best work of Vince Guaraldi. Titles include "Sweet September", "Can't We Be Friends", "Any Number Can Win", "Soft Winds", "Oleo", "Yours Is My Heart Alone", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", and "Kiss Me Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a partially split spine & some wear.)

✨✧ Cal TjaderCal Tjader's Latin Concert ... LP
Fantasy, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Not the sort of stodgy affair you might think from the "concert" in the title – and instead a relaxed, nicely-grooving little set – recorded by Cal Tjader in the very familiar territory of the Blackhawk night club in San Francisco! The recording quality is less live than other Tjader location recordings – less audience noise, or room feel – and instead a sound that's as crystal clear as any of Cal's great studio recordings from the time – served up with a warmth and glow that gets us right from the very first note! Tjader's vibes seem a bit harder-edged than usual – and the group's a quintet with Vince Guaraldi on piano, Al McKibbon on bass, Willie Bobo on timbales and drums, and Mongo Santamaria on congas. Titles include "Mi Guaguanco", "Cubano Chant", "Viva Cepeda", "A Young Love", "Tu Crees Que", and "Mood For Milt". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing on red vinyl. Cover has light wear. Vinyl plays with some clicks and crackles.)

✨✧ Cal TjaderNight At The Blackhawk ... LP
Fantasy, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Cal Tjader's best late 50s dates for Fantasy Records – thanks to some smoking tenor sax from Jose "Chombo" Silva! The album has Cal working in the very comfortable territory of San Francisco's Blackhawk Nightclub – in a combo that also features familiar players Vince Guaraldi on piano, Al McKibbon on bass, Willie Boby on drums, and Mongo Santamaria on congas – all musicians who'd previously helped Tjader hit some of his best Latin grooves! But the addition of Silva on a few tracks here really makes the set crackle – giving it a gutsy, soulful fee that you don't always get on some of Tjader's other records. Tracks are longish – and titles include the nice original "Bill B", plus jazzy versions of "I Love Paris", "Blue & Sentimental", and "Night In Tunisia". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing. Cover has some light stains.)
