Swinging Mr Rogers (Jazzlore)

LP (Item 603480) Atlantic, 1955 — Condition: Sealed
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

A standout set from Shorty – tightly arranged numbers performed by a quartet that includes Jimmy Giuffre, Pete Jolly, Curtis Counce, and Shelly Manne – all working with Shorty in perfect west coast form! Despite the length of the tunes, the overall feel is similar to Rogers' excellent Wherever The Five Winds Blow album for RCA – and makes the record a great set, done without any gimmicks or tricks – and enough of the modern touch still left from Rogers' first few years on record. Titles include "Martians Go Home", "Trickleydidlier", "Not Really The Blues", and "Michele's Meditation".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 80s Jazzlore issue, still sealed, but with a hole in front from sticker removal and a mostly split and frayed spine.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Duke Pearson

Honey Buns
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good
An excellent Duke Pearson album – and (dare we say it?) better than any of his Blue Note LPs!

Herbie Mann

Discotheque
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint-
Herbie Mann hits the discos – but given the flute player's roots in jazz, the set's more of an electric funk outing overall! Herbie's working here with his Family of Mann group – that cool combo that features lots of work on keyboards from Pat Rebillot, who also handled the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz Quartet

Legendary Profile
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint-
A cool 70s album from the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one that has John Lewis playing a bit of electric piano, in addition to his usual acoustic keys! At some level, it almost feels like the group's working off the lessons learned during their Apple Records years – and are also picking ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Bell & The Contemporary Jazz Quartet

Another Dimension
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+
A wonderful set by the enigmatic Charles Bell – a 60s modernist, but one with a great sense of soul! The album definitely lives up to its title, and has a fresh approach to the medium – a style that has some of the Modern Jazz Quartet influence in its structure, yet which also shares ... LP, Vinyl record album

Max Roach

Drums Unlimited
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
The drums are certainly unlimited here – and the album's a really unique one, in that it shows Max Roach in 2 different settings – one with a group, and one that's simply solo! One batch of tracks has Max in the company of a tight group of soul jazz players like Freddie Hubbard, Roland ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette Coleman

Ornette On Tenor
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+
An early standout set from Ornette Coleman – and a record that features him blowing on tenor, instead of his usual alto – as you might guess from the title! In a way, Ornette's playing on tenor is almost freer than his alto work – a bit more open-ended and exploratory, stretching ... LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz Quartet

Pyramid
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good
Features a long reading of "Pyramid" – plus "Django", "Romaine", "Vendome", and "It Don't Mean A Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Art Ensemble Of Chicago

Fanfare For The Warriors
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint-
A beautiful little record from the Art Ensemble of Chicago – and although performed for a bigger label than some of their previous indie outings, the set may be one of the most dynamic the group ever recorded! Atlantic Records is clearly giving the group a lot of space here – as they're ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis Trio & Jean DuShon

You Better Believe Me
Argo, 1965. Very Good
A great set of soul jazz vocals from the Chicago scene – one of a few rare albums cut by singer Jean DuShon, who gets superb backing from the Ramsey Lewis trio! The group is great, and the style of the record allows for plenty of tight contributions from Eldee Young on bass and Red Holt on ... LP, Vinyl record album
