George Gershwin Songbook – Vol 2

CD (Item 589830) EmArcy, 1950s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

One of the fuller-sounding albums recorded by Sarah Vaughan for Emarcy in the 50s – a set of George Gershwin numbers, mostly set to large studio backings directed by Hal Mooney! The lush approach is a nice one for Vaughan, and an early hint of her talents in such a setting – one that makes for sophisticated sounds and phrasing that really sets her apart from the pack! Jimmy Jones plays piano on most numbers, and titles include "But Not For Me", "Isn't It A Pity", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Bidin' My Time", "Man I Love", "My One & Only", "Lorelei", "I've Got A Crush On You", "Summertime" and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Crazy & Mixed Up
Pablo, 1982. Used
Nothing crazy and mixed up here, but a wonderful later date from Sarah Vaughan – one that's recorded with subtly sophisticated brilliance! The setting is easygoing and relaxed – far more so than most of Vaughan's records from many years past – and backing is provided by Roland ... CD

At Long Last
Concord, 1998. Used
A surprising later gem from Rosemary Clooney – a record that has her working with a late version of the Count Basie Band, and really hitting a very swinging groove! The group at this point is directed by Grover Mitchell, and the arrangements have that old Basie bounce – a style that ... CD

Roulette/Fresh Sound (Spain), Early 60s. Used
Despite any prejudice you might have against Maynard Ferguson, he actually does a damn good job backing up Chris Connor's lovely voice on this record – probably because his band is super-hip, and includes players like Jaki Byard, Joe Farrell, and Rufus Jones. Connor is in fine icy form, as ... CD
