LP (Item 44141) Capitol, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good

A collection of some of Kenton's early 50s hits. Most of the tracks that are included were arranged by Pete Rugolo and they include "Peg O' My Heart", "He's Funny That Way", "Capitol Punishment", "Painted Rhythm", "Lover", "Somnambulism", "Abstraction", and "Chorale For Brass, Piano & Bongo". Packaged in a very cool cover featuring a conductor standing amidst a odd Dali-esque landscape of hands and lines.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Purple label pressing with deep groove.)

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.

Capitol/Creative World, Early 50s. Near Mint-
Wonderful work from Kenton – warm and seductive, yet also modern and adventurous, tunes that are familiar, yet inexplicably transformed by the Kentonite approach! The record's got a similar feel to some of the best work coming out of the Kenton school at the time – and players on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Adventures In Time
Capitol, 1962. Very Good+
Later modern work by Kenton – but still pretty darn great! The album features arrangements by Johnny Richards – clever explorations in time that still swing with that nice Richards touch, played by a group that features a number of lesser-known younger players, including Don Menza, who' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Adventures In Jazz
Capitol, Early 60s. 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
One of the hippest Stan Kenton albums of the 60s – a set of original compositions by Dee Barton – Stan's drummer at the time, and a composer to rival the great ones who contributed to the Kenton group of the 40s and 50s! Barton's work here is totally great – modern, but never too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Plas Johnson

This Must Be The Plas!
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
A gem of a session from tenorman Plas Johnson – recorded for Capitol with small group backing that includes organ, piano, vibes, and a bit of guitar – all grooving in a mode that's much more suited to Johnson's deeply riffing style than the easy arrangements of much of his other work. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ronnie Laws

Mr Nice Guy
Capitol, 1983. Near Mint-
Ronnie Laws really makes a big move into the soul field with this one – quite a big record for him back in the day, and a set that helped Laws reach an even wider audience at the time! Ronnie sings as much as playing sax on the set – and he also handles a fair bit of keyboards too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Earl Klugh

Low Ride
Capitol, 1983. Near Mint-
Featuring guest keys from Ronnie Foster and orchestral arrangements by Johnny Mandel, Clare Fischer, and Dave Matthews. LP, Vinyl record album

Ebony In Rhythem

Ebony In Rhythem
Capitol (Canada), Mid 60s. Very Good+
A very unusual set from 60s Canada – a set that features a unique blend of jazz, vocal, and Caribbean modes – all handled by the large ensemble pictured on the cover! Some tracks are vocal, some are instrumental, and there's a nicely varied approach throughout – all directed by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Morgan

Sidewinder
Blue Note, 1964. Very Good-
A jazz classic if there ever was one – and the best-selling album ever by Lee Morgan, thanks to the use of the title track in a car commercial! Sure, you've probably heard "The Sidewinder" enough that you think you know the album already – but the rest of the tunes really ... LP, Vinyl record album
