LP (Item 1721) Capitol, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good

A collection of some of Kenton's early 50s hits, presented here as "encores", with most of the tracks arranged by Pete Rugolo. 11 tracks in all, including "He's Funny That Way", "Painted Rhythm", "Journey To Brazil", "Somnambulism", "Chorale For Brass, Piano And Bongo", "Capitol Punishment", "Ecuador" and "Abstraction". Packaged in a very cool cover featuring a conductor standing amidst a odd Dali-esque landscape of hands and lines. (Turquoise label pressing. Cover has a split top seam, half split spine, and some pen on back.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good
Wonderful work from Kenton – warm and seductive, yet also modern and adventurous, tunes that are familiar, yet inexplicably transformed by the Kentonite approach!

Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good-
A seminal work in the development of the American jazz avant garde, and one of the most "out" records that Kenton (or Capitol) ever released! The whole album is based around two startling compositions by Robert Graettinger – "This Modern World" and "City Of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Time & Chance
Capitol, 1978. Very Good
Caldera's third LP for Capitol – and with more fusiony riffing than some of their earlier work for the label. The record's got spacey keyboards by Eduardo Del Barrio and lots of guitar work by Jorge Strunz – and it includes the soulful track "Dreamborne", plus the cuts "S ... LP, Vinyl record album

The last full album from Caldera – and a wonderful set that's a perfect cap to their classic late 70s run on Capitol Records! The groove here is fusion, but with lots of Latin undercurrents – especially on the percussion, which rumbles up from the bottom to make for a nicely organic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love Affair
Capitol, 1978. Very Good
A wicked set from the great Gary Bartz – one done after his mid 70s association with Larry Mizell – but still very much in a similar groove! The album's a great blend of Gary's soulful alto work with sweet electric backings – often put together with that angular stepping mode he ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1974. Very Good
A stone classic from Supersax – a record with plenty of classic bop elements, despite a very 70s-styled group name and cover! The combo's a large one, and features tight horn formation deftly cutting through a host of bop classics – lots of ensemble passages at the start, then breakout ... LP, Vinyl record album
White Satin
