LP (Item 1721) Capitol, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good
(€2.41 || £2.12 || ¥317) (approx.)

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.

Spinning Wheel
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
Hip sh*t from Howard Roberts – working here with David Axelrod production, which brings an even cooler edge to his already-great approach to jazzy funk. Tom Scott is on saxes, Dave Grusin plays organ and electric piano, and Roberts' guitar is a lot more unbridled than on some of the other ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!
Capitol, 1966. Very Good+
If the 60's ever had a "hit" jazz record, it was probably this one! The album's a sparkling live session featuring the trademark soul jazz sounds of the Cannonball Adderley group with Joe Zawinul on acoustic and electric piano, and brother Nat Adderley on cornet. The tracks have a long ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nightsongs
Capitol, 1984. Near Mint-
Earl Klugh's guitar gets plenty of rich colors to work with here – some deeper backdrops from arrangers Don Sebesky and Dave Matthews – each of whom bring a different mood to the set! Sebesky's got those lush, full charts that we love so much from his classic orchestral charts of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good-
If you ever needed a key example of the genius of Cannonball on Capitol Records, this tight little set may well be it! The record's got all the best elements of a Cannon classic firmly in place – production by David Axelrod, electric piano by Joe Zawinul, and some tremendously soulful work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Duke Ellington Showcase
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good
One of Duke's few Capitol recordings – featuring sides recorded in Chicago, New York, and Hollywood between the years 1953 and 1955. Tunes are short, but hitting that more sophisticated Ellington 50s mode – and players include Clark Terry, Jimmy Woode, Cat Anderson, Harry Carney, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jumpin' With Jonah
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
Classic trumpet-heavy jive from Jonah Jones! The focus is on Jonah's gutbucket swinging style, with his trumpet up front in the mix in post-KC swing-type tunes. Things get a bit campy at times, but this pop-jazz-swing style worked extremely well for Jones and Capitol. Titles include "Moten ... LP, Vinyl record album
