Exotic Sounds From The Silver Screen

LP (Item 37428) Liberty, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Denny's combo with Augie Colon and Julius Wechter groove their way through some nice numbers from films of the 40s, 60s, and early 60s – mostly in the vein of familiar tunes, but as always, redone in a groovy exotic way by Denny's unique approach to easy instrumentals! The vibes, piano, and conga sound great together – and there's even some nice celeste on the album in a few parts. Titles include "Carioca", "Sayonara", "Paradise", "We're Off The See The Wizard", and "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has half split seams and a mark from sticker removal.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Mindblowing work from the duo of Ferrante & Teicher – a set that's filled with odd experiments, prepared piano techniques, and a lot more weird sounds than their straighter pop albums of the 60s!

Coral, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Not as freewheeling as some of Raymond Scott's earlier work, but still quite nice – a set that features added strings in the mix, but used with a sound that's every bit as wild and dynamic as some of Scot's small combo recordings! A few of the tunes are familiar Scott classics, others are a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ping Pong!
Capitol, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Alvion Rey always seems to get a little bit overlooked, but his band, led by a steel guitar that goes "wow-WOW-wow", sounds a lot like Esquivel's, as proven by the tracks on this LP. Lots of standards, but greatly pepped up and stretched out, in the Rey tradition. With "Aloha ... LP, Vinyl record album
