Swingin Miss D

LP (Item 52365) EmArcy, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Swingin is right – as Dinah lets go with Quincy Jones orchestra, singing strong and hard in a set that's one of her best jazz sides from the 50s! Quincy knows how to mix just the right doses of straight jazz and tighter vocal arrangements – and Dinah's very comfortably at home in the setting, stretching out with a great sense of soul that really stands out. The album's an early example of Jones' great ability to work with singers – and titles include "I'll Close My Eyes", "Perdido", "Caravan", "You're Crying", "They Didn't Believe Me", "But Not For Me", and "Somebody Loves Me".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s Dutch pressing.)

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.

EmArcy, 1956. Near Mint-

Sarah Vaughan

Sassy
EmArcy, 1956. Very Good+
One of Vaughan's nice jazz sides from the 50s on EmArcy, but cut with slightly larger backing, almost in the vein of some here concurrent pop oriented work at the Mercury parent label during the same time. Arrangements are by Hal Mooney, and Vaughan takes an approach that showcases how she ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Voice In Jazz
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good
Kitty White's first album for Mercury – a sublime set recorded right at the height of Mercury's jazz years – and done in a personal, unfettered style that's really great – right up there with more famous albums for the label by Dinah Washington or Sarah Vaughan from the same time. ...

Carmen McRae

Can't Hide Love
Blue Note, 1976. Near Mint-
Sweet soul from Carmen McRae – a great 70s album for Blue Note, and one that has the classic singer moving into some very groovy material! The feel here is much more soul than jazz – at least the jazz of the torchy style from Carmen's roots – but as you'd guess from McRae, the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1961. Near Mint-
One of Frank's liveliest albums for Capitol – a return to the harder-swinging mode of the early and mid 50s, after a wealth of sadder albums in the later part of the decade. Backings are by Billy May – in that brassy mode he used at the time, one that kept the tunes hiply grooving, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dinah Shore

Bouquet Of Blues
RCA, 1956. Very Good+
Dinah Shore's definitely got a bouquet of blues here – thanks to some backings that echo the moody, late nite image on the cover! The set's one of Shore's most blue-hued ever – a surprisingly beautiful little record that features orchestrations from Henri Rene, Frank DeVol, and Harry ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1964. Near Mint-
Very groovy work from Marian Montgomery – an overlooked 60s singer who had a wonderful "punch" in her voice!

Muse, 1986. Sealed
Later work from Morgana King – but further proof that the lady's one hell of a singer, and kept on making wonderful music long after fading from the public spotlight!
