Best Of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross (aka The Hottest New Group In Jazz)

LP (Item 60884) Columbia, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good

How can we even begin to describe the genius of Lambert Hendricks and Ross? The group was a jazz vocal supergroup that merged three talents that had already made a big name in the bebop vocalese field – Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks, and the lovely Annie Ross – and the project was an attempt to completely work the emerging vocalese style onto a full-blown jazz group. This album wasn't their first – but it was the first to really break them with the masses, and it's a vocal jazz classic if there ever was one. Backings are by the Ike Isaacs Trio, plus Harry Edison on trumpet – and titles include "Moanin", "Twisted", "Cloudburst", "Everybody's Boppin", and "Sermonette". 70s version of the group's first album for Columbia – Hottest New Group In Jazz – but works fine as a best of!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Columbia, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A later repackaging of the excellent Flying High album – easily the group's best album by far, and unfortunately, too often the toughest one to find! The arrangements here are fantastic, and the material is waaaaaay more hip than the Ellington and Basie stuff that they wasted too much time ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Bennett

Many Moods Of Tony
Columbia, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
There's definitely many moods here, but the record also features some nice jazzy ones, too – thanks to work by the Ralph Sharon trio, plus guest appearances by Chico Hamilton on drums, Bobby Hackett on cornet, and even Dick Hyman on organ! LP, Vinyl record album

Kirby Stone Four

Baubles, Bangles & Beads
Columbia, 1958. Very Good+
The Kirby Stone Four were not always as right-on as other vocal quartets of their time, like the Four Freshmen or Hi-Lo's – but this album is one of their best, and features the group grooving in a tight harmony sound, with little of the "comedy" that sometimes mars other albums. ...

Columbia, 1973. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
A great set from Ella Fitzgerald – recorded at Carnegie Hall during a stretch when Fitzgerald was hitting new worldwide fame, and singing a lot of groovy contemporary tunes – but done here in a very old school style that hearkens back to Ella's earliest days in the jazz world!

Doris Day & Andre Previn

Duet
Columbia, 1962. Very Good+
Beautiful work from singer Doris Day – and a record that may well be her jazziest for Columbia – thanks to backing from the Andre Previn trio!

Follow Me
Columbia, 1988. Near Mint-
Sweet vocals in a spare setting – sung in English by Japanese vocalist Kimiko Itoh, and recorded in New York with arrangements by Richard Tee and Steve Gadd!

La Vergne Smith
Vik, 1956. Near Mint-
Obscure vocal session cut by New Orleans singer LaVergne Smith, and recorded in the Crescent City along with a local group that included Red Tyler, Wallace Davenport, and Earl Palmer. The material is bluesy and standard, and LaVergne's soulful voice wraps a bit of New Orleans in every track. ... LP, Vinyl record album
