Big Band Bossa Nova

LP (Item 3306) Verve, 1962 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

An overlooked gem from the Verve bossa years – a session that features the sweet tenor sax work of Stan Getz, alongside some swinging bossa arrangements from the great Gary McFarland! Given the strength of Gary's own work for Verve at the time, it's no surprise that he's a perfect accompanist for Getz on the session – working with just the right amount of space to let Stan stand out from the pack, and really creating a great blend of Brazilian rhythms and some of the modder 60s styles at Verve. Gary contributed a number of originals to the session too – and titles include "Bim Bom", "Manlancolico", "Balanco No Samba", "Noite Triste", "Chega De Saudade", and "Manha De Carnival".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono MGM pressing. Cover has light aging and an embossed X on the back.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Focus (70s issue)
Verve, 1961. Near Mint- Gatefold
Oft-overlooked album that's actually one of Getz's most far-reaching of the 60s! Recorded in the year before he got caught up in his bossa pop frenzy, the record shows Getz as a darkly toned modernist, weaving out complex solos over the album's extended suite "Focus", written and ...

Stan Getz

Master
Columbia, 1975. Near Mint-
A gem of a session from Stan Getz – recorded in 1975, but unissued until the mid 80s!

Duke Ellington & Johnny Hodges

Blues Summit (Side By Side/Back To Back)
Verve, 1959. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A great little album that builds on the strength of Johnny Hodges' small group 50s sessions for Verve – and which lets Duke Ellington in on some of the action!

Gene Krupa

Percussion King
Verve, 1961. Near Mint-
Gene Krupa's definitely the percussion king here – working on a lot of additional percussion with help from Joe Venuto, Doug Allen, and Mousey Alexander – under the direction of George Williams, who arranged all sorts of unusual material for the session! LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Gerry Mulligan

Getz Meets Mulligan In Hi Fi
Verve, 1958. Near Mint-
The tenor of Stan Getz meets the baritone sax of Gerry Mulligan – and then they switch things around for half of the record, as Stan picks up the baritone and Mulligan takes on tenor!

Verve, 1959. Very Good+
Cole Porter's tunes are great enough on their own, but Oscar really opens them up on this set – picking up the inherent rhythms in the numbers and really working them over – in a way that makes the outing one of the most lively in Peterson's songbook series for Verve! Oscar's fluid ... LP, Vinyl record album
