Latin Affair

LP (Item 39082) Capitol, 1958 — Condition: Near Mint-
Wonderful exotic work from George Shearing – a mixture of jazz piano, Latin percussion, and lyrical guitar and vibes – all intertwined beautifully in that unique groove that really set new standards at the time! The album's got plenty of jazz, but also a nice exotic twist too – thanks to the hip instrumentation – which has George balancing perfectly between a few key spots of American musical taste of the time – and finding a rich new territory of his own! Titles include "All Or Nothing At All", "Dearly Beloved", "Juana Palangana" "Afro #4", "Magic", "Mambo Balahu", "This Is Africa","Mambo Balahu", "You Stepped Out On A Dream" and "Estampa Cubana".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has surface wear.)

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.

Stan Kenton

Cuban Fire
Capitol, 1956. Very Good
One of Kenton's greatest records, and the one in which he proves his dedication to Latin styles, by serving up a killer batch of Afro-Cuban tracks with an incredibly authentic feel. The great Johnny Richards handled the arrangements, and the tracks are long and drawn out, with plenty of solo space ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coleman Hawkins

Gilded Hawk
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Tremendous work from Coleman Hawkins – a sublime "with strings" session from the 50s, and one of Bean's greatest albums from the decade! The setting is quite different than other sets with Hawk on tenor – soft strings from Glen Osser, cascading beautifully and gently – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Domination
Capitol, 1965. Very Good+

Cannonball Adderley Quintet

Happy People
Capitol, 1972. Very Good
A really unique little album from Cannonball's all-great late years at Capitol – a session that features some strong influences from Brazilian music – "The Happy People" – and production from the legendary David Axelrod! The mix makes for a really unique little record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zbigniew Seifert

Passion
Capitol, 1978. Very Good+
The last album ever recorded by jazz violinist Zbigniew Seifert before his tragic early death from cancer – and a really far-reaching set that's got more of a solid, acoustic feel than his first set for Capitol. Like that album, this one's co-produced by Chris Hinze, and has some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!
Capitol, 1966. Near Mint-
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

Cannonball Adderley with Sergio Mendes

Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars
Capitol/Pickwick, 1962. Very Good+
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Stan Kenton Presents
Capitol, 1950. Near Mint-
Excellent early Stan Kenton – and a perfect album to pick if you're looking for a great example of the way he blended modernist jazz with more traditional swing based forms. The album's a showcase of rich shimmering colors, played by Kenton and the orchestra to perfection, and highlighting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

74 Miles Away/Walk Tall
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
A stone classic from Cannonball Adderley – and a pivotal set that has him continuing the live recording setting of some of his best 60s albums, while also stretching forward to some of the more inventive ideas of the latter part of the decade! David Axelrod produced, and the album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony Braxton with Muhal Richard Abrams

Duets 1976
Arista, 1976. Near Mint-
The rich tones of Muhal's piano provide a perfect foil for Braxton, and one that gets him playing a wide range of styles on sopranino, clarinet, bass clarinet, and alto. The whole album resonates with a soulfulness that's not always apparent in Braxton's other work from the time – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orchestra USA/John Lewis

Debut
Colpix, 1963. Near Mint-
The first recordings ever from Orchestra USA – the landmark third stream jazz group co-led by John Lewis and Gunther Schuller!
