Piano Style Of Nat King Cole

LP (Item 581499) Capitol, 1955 — Condition: Near Mint-

Not vocals, but Nat on piano – over orchestrations by Nelson Riddle!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mid 80s UK reissue in a barcode cover, slightly wavy along the opening.)

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 great collection of bop sides from LA in the forties – tracks that feature a young Nat King Cole on piano, jamming with Lester Young on tenor and a bit of trumpet from Howard McGhee!

Cannonball Adderley

74 Miles Away/Walk Tall
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
A stone classic from Cannonball Adderley – and a pivotal set that has him continuing the live recording setting of some of his best 60s albums, while also stretching forward to some of the more inventive ideas of the latter part of the decade! David Axelrod produced, and the album's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1961. Very Good+
A classic jazz interpretation of the score to West Side Story – served up in ultra-hip fashion by the Stan Kenton Orchestra!

Eddie Henderson

Comin' Through
Capitol, 1977. Near Mint-
Sweet smooth and funky work from Eddie Henderson – a nice move from his more righteous work of the mid 70s, into an R&B-tinged sound that would take him far in years to come! The sound is surprisingly great, and still pretty darn righteous – thanks to some great production by Skip ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Price You Got To Pay To Be Free
Capitol, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic work from the massive electric years of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet – one of the group's last records to feature the keyboards of Joe Zawinul – and also one of the heaviest from the time!

My Fair Lady – With The Un-Original Cast
Capitol, 1964. Near Mint-
Way way more than just a simple "jazz meets Broadway" session – as Shelly's working here with vocals by Jack Sheldon & Irene Kral, and arrangements by soundtrack maestro Johnny Williams – in a style that completely recasts the score! The album's got a really dynamic kind ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Romantic Approach
Capitol, 1961. Very Good

George Shearing Quintet

Latin Escapade
Capitol, 1956. Near Mint-
A great one from George Shearing – beautifully restrained, but coming across with these Latin grooves that are mighty nice too! Shearing's just about the only cat who could balance Latin percussion with piano this well – and the album's a perfect example of the way that George borrowed ... LP, Vinyl record album
