Sweet Talk

LP (Item 5965) Roulette, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+

One of the fullest-staffed albums ever recorded by Kitty White – but a set that still gives her plenty private, personal space! The album features different groupings of players who include Benny Carter on alto, Ted Nash on tenor and flute, Harry Edison on trumpet, Larry Bunker on vibes, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Laurindo Almeida on guitar – plus some Latin percussion from Carlos Vidal on the bottom. Yet despite the presence of all of these players, many numbers have an up-close quality that makes us feel like we're hearing Kitty's moody vocals in the backroom of some private club in LA. Her phrasing is great throughout – articulate, but never too much so – and titles include "Lazy Afternoon", "It Was So Beautiful", "Alone Together", "Talk Me Some Sweet Talk", "Please Be Patient", and "Dat's Love".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Orange & pink label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a sticker spot.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Kitty White

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. ...

Sarah Vaughan

Dreamy
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+
A perfect title for a perfect album from Sarah Vaughan – one of those wonderful dates from the singer's second chapter of her career – a time when she was finding newly sophisticated ways to spin out her songs!

Joe Williams & Lambert, Hendricks & Ross

Sing Along With Basie
Roulette, 1958. Near Mint-
One of the more obscure albums by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – a session of Basie tunes, performed with backing by the Count, plus additional lead vocals by Joe Williams, the voice most closely associated with the Basie group at the time! The style is similar to the trio's Sing A Song Of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great stuff from Leonard Nimoy – one of his best records, largely because he's upfront about the Spock side of his persona! As is well known, Nimoy really thought of himself as more of a serious singer than just a pointy-eared alien – so other records have a lot more of him singing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Sinatra

Boots
Reprise, 1966. Very Good+
The album that put Nancy over the top – and one with lots of stellar Lee Hazlewood writing and production, and cuts like "I Move Around", "So Long, Babe", "Flowers On The Wall", and the title cut. Nice liner notes, too – with a conversation in which Nancy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold
A very unusual concert from Billie Holiday – one that features narration by Gilbert Millstein, telling the story of Billie's life! The format is quite unusual – almost a live documentary, with the subject of the documentary there in person herself! Millstein narrates from the start, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Mathis

This Is Love
Mercury, 1964. Very Good+
Great arrangements really make this one sparkle – thanks to backings from Allyn Ferguson, done in that perfect mix of soft strings and shimmering brass that seems to work best for the vocals of Johnny Mathis! The album's got a feel that's full, but never in a too-lush or sleepy way – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vanguard, Early 50s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Roost, 1955. Very Good
One of the best-remembered jazz albums from singer Bev Kelly – partly for the record's great use of guitar by Johnny Smith, but also for the great vocals from Bev herself! The album's one of a few that really set a new standard for small combo jazz in the 50s – different than the ... LP, Vinyl record album
