Maynard Ferguson's Hollywood Party

LP (Item 474904) EmArcy, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good-

A great early demonstration of the bold talents as a leader from trumpeter Maynard Ferguson – heard here in a loose, open-ended performance that's more of a jam session than anything else! The style's almost similar to the Clifford Brown jam dates for Emarcy from the same time – two long tracks that are driven by well-crafted rhythms – and which really soar with open solo work from Ferguson on trumpet, Bud Shank on alto, Bob Cooper on tenor, and Bob Gordon on baritone. The work is nicely boppish and a fair bit more open than most of the players were getting at the time – and Maynard himself is often back a far bit to let everyone get in some good solo space! Each track lasts a side – and titles include "Night Letter" and "Somebody Loves Me".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Forum, Early 60s. Very Good+
A lesser-known gem from a young Maynard Ferguson!

EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good
A real cooker from Georgie Auld's years on Mercury – a record that comes across with some "hi fi" dynamics, but which also features a strongly swinging group overall!

Jimmy Cleveland

Cleveland Style
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
Quite possibly the best of Cleveland's albums for Mercury during the 50s – a tight hardbop set of tracks recorded with a septet that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Benny Golson on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, and Charlie Persip on drums. Tracks are more open-ended than on some of Cleveland' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mallets A Plenty
EmArcy, 1956. Very Good
A gem by vibist Terry Gibbs – just the kind of set that shows why Terry was one of the best known players on his instrument in the 50s!

Jimmy Cleveland

Rhythm Crazy
EmArcy, Mid 60s. Very Good
One of Cleveland's best albums ever – recorded with arrangements by Benny Golson and Gigi Gryce, both of whom give the album more of a soulful swing than you'd hear on some of Cleveland's earlier work. The group is a septet – with Jerome Richardson and Golson on reeds, Art Farmer on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clifford Brown

Clifford Brown All Stars
EmArcy, 1954. Very Good-
A key slice of Clifford Brown from the 50s – two long tracks both recorded in an open-ended jam session format, showing a side of Brown's powers that's even bolder and more inventive than some of his previous studio work! The album soars along beautifully – with Brownie in the lead ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hamp In Paris
EmArcy, Early 50s. Very Good-
A bit trad, but still a pretty great session of work from Hamp – recorded in Paris, as you'd expect from the title, a place where he did some of his finest work in the 50s! Players include Mezz Mezzrow, Buddy Banks, Andre Persiany, and Kansas Fields – and tracks include "Elmar The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lively R&B-tinged jazz material from this legendary Chicago tenorist!
