Adventures In Jazz

LP (Item 39320) Capitol, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Stan reprises his famous modernist swing in a great little album that's one of his best works from the early 60s. The tracks are longish, with the mixture of dark shading and breakout solos that grace some of his best early work – and although the players in the group aren't the famous west coasters that Stan first brought to fame, they all do a fine job when the solo moment comes. Titles include "Waltz Of The Prophets", "Turtle Talk", "Malaguena", and "Body & Soul".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono rainbow label pressing. Cover has a surface wear, a price sticker remnant, and minor splitting on the top seam.)

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.

Later modern work by Kenton – but still pretty darn great!

Capitol, 1961. Near Mint-
A great set by Stan Kenton – one that applies the dark tones of his style to a range of popular numbers that end up completely transformed! The album features some wonderful charts from arranger Lennie Niehaus – emerging here as one of the more complicated talents of the west coast ... LP, Vinyl record album
Creative World, 1973. Near Mint-
Funky stuff from Stan – a very different album than usual! The style here is 70s big band funk – mixing the usual horn-heavy frontline with some electric bass and more of the groove that was showing up with the European big bands at the time – particularly those on the MPS label. ...

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
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
Late Kenton on Capitol – but great Kenton too! In a way, Stan was almost best when he was working with standards – as on a set like this, he has an incredible way of transforming the sound of familiar numbers into something dark, moody, and modern. It's amazing to hear the way he ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fire, Fury & Fun
Creative World, 1974. Near Mint-
A hokey title, but a nice little set – one of Stan's under-rated cookers for his own Creative World label from the 70s! The tracks are all long, fresh, and warmly chromatic – a bit funky at times, and kind of a 70s take on the Kenton style of earlier years – pushing the solos ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Why Am I Treated So Bad?
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 ...
