Warm Sound

LP (Item 738467) Atlantic, 1957 — Condition: Near Mint-

A wonderful little record from Frances Wayne – thanks to some great arrangements from Neal Hefti! Hefti's approach here is just perfect – not as over the top as his work with Count Basie, but with the right blend of sophistication and soulfulness to make Wayne sound great – really coming across with a lot more depth than we remember from other albums. Frances' vocals are slightly breathy at times, but never too much so – and she's got a slightly snakey quality that slides out nicely amidst small combo instrumentation from Al Cohn on tenor, Hank Jones on piano, Billy Mure on guitar, and Jerome Richardson on flute. Titles include "In Other Words", "Early Autumn", "Round Midnight", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Blue & Sentimental", "Soft Winds", and "Oh What A Night For Love".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Japanese Warner-Pioneer pressing, P-6133A. Includes the insert. Cover has some wear and aging.)

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 classic album of Cole Porter tunes – sung by Mabel Mercer with just a bit of tinkling piano in the background!

Witchcraft
Atlantic, 1959. Sealed
A lovely side by Chris Connor for Atlantic, recorded not too long after her stint at Bethlehem – where she'd perfected an icy cool style of singing that's still to be matched to this day! The album features larger arrangements by Richard Wess – but still has a light jazzy feel, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Come Dance With Me
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Billy May's got Frank nicely swinging on this one – working on a set of older numbers, retuned for the Sinatra sound of 50s Capitol! The band is tight, the sound is right, and Frank steps out nicely on songs that he sung years before in other settings – but quite possibly never so well ... LP, Vinyl record album
