Uniquely Mancini

LP (Item 489667) RCA, 1963 — Condition: Near Mint-

Uniquely Mancini work from the great Henry – a sweet set of early 60s work for RCA, done with a harder jazz style than some of his other work of the time! Mancini's group is filled with west coast jazzmen – working under tight leadership to craft some tracks with a bold, sort of flourish that draws strongly from the late 50s crime jazz styles of Mancini, but which also shows some of his more complicated scoring modes of the 60s. Many tunes are standards, but given a vibrant new swing here – and those are offset by a few especially nice originals composed by Hank, such as "Lonesome", "Cheers", and "Banzai Pipeline". Players include Plas Johnson and Gene Cipriano on flute and tenor, Larry Bunker on vibes and marimba, Bob Bain on guitar, and Pete and Conte Candoli on trumpets – and titles include "Green Onions", "Night Train", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "C Jam Blues", "The Hot Canary", and "Moonlight Serenade".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo Dynagroove pressing with deep groove.)

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.

A collaboration with poet John Laws – a project that almost recalls some of the Rod McKuen/Anita Kerr projects of the late 60s, but which has a deeper, more sophisticated Mancini feel!

Exploring the Unknown
RCA, 1955. Very Good
One of the postwar space-age classics!
