June Christy Recalls Those Kenton Days

LP (Item 78601) Capitol, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+

A later Capitol gem by June – where she reprisies a number of classics from her early years with Stan Kenton – new versions of late 40s tunes, done here with Pete Rugolo arrangements that go a good way towards showing how both he and June had grown during the 50s. Titles include "How High The Moon", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "Easy Street", "Across The Alley From The Alamo", "She's Funny That Way", and "A Hundred Years From Today".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono rainbow label pressing. Cover has a half split top seam.)

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.

June Christy

Misty Miss Christy
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good+
One of June's all-time classics – and perhaps her most famous album, next to the sublime Something Cool. The set, like that one, was arranged and conducted by Pete Rugolo – whose icy and modern touches are the perfect foil for June's sad and dark voice. Familiar tunes are completely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
From its booze-soaked title cut, to its haunting selection of lonely ballads like "Midnight Sun" and "Stranger Called The Blues", this is one of the most fantastic vocal jazz albums of all time – and a record that we'd recommend instantly to anyone! June Christy has an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Nancy – Naturally
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good-
A great one from Nancy Wilson – a set that has the singer working with full arrangements from Billy May, who's got this surprisingly subtle approach at times that works really well with the soulful currents in Nancy's vocals! The approach is almost more like Oliver Nelson, especially with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

In The Wee Small Hours
Capitol, 1955. Very Good-
One of the greatest vocal albums of all time! Sinatra's never sounded better than on this album – one of the first truly cohesive albums of torch and ballad songs ever recorded – done by Frank at a time when his heart was really breaking, and sung with a depth you'd hardly ever find in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carole Simpson

All About Carol
Capitol, 1957. Near Mint-
A lost vocal gem from 50s LA – featuring the singing talents of Carole Simpson, who also plays piano on the session! Arrangements are more striking than usual for this sort of gal singer session – handled by Eddie Cano and Lennie Niehaus – with a moody small combo sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy Wilson

Broadway My Way
Capitol, 1963. Very Good-
A great counterpart to Nancy Wilson's classic Hollywood My Way album for Capitol – and like that one, a classy set of tunes arranged and conducted by Jimmy Jones! The style is similar to Nancy's more pop-oriented work, with perhaps a bit more pause on the ballads to unlock their more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good
A rare Stan Kenton session with a vocalist – one that features the little-known Jean Turner, a really great singer with a mix of soul and jazz that's a lot like Nancy Wilson! Kenton's a bit looser and more swinging here than usual – almost in an Oliver Nelson mode at times to match the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole

Welcome To The Club
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+
One of our favorite albums by Nat King Cole – done with a bit more depth and feeling than some of his other Capitol sets of the time – and some great jazzy backings, too! Arrangements are by Dave Cavanaugh, but there's almost a Basie-like quality to the group at times – never too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy Lee

Natural Woman
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A key album in the transformation of Peggy Lee's sound at the end of the 60s – one that has her moving from just being a jazz singer, into a more complicated role of interpreting contemporary singer/songwriter material – often with a mature and experienced tone, one that makes her ...

Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
Anita O'Day pays tribute to Downbeat poll winners by singing vocal versions of their big hits in this lively set of jazz tracks from the 50s! Arrangements are by Marty Paich and Russ Garcia, both swinging as nicely as they ever did – and the setting of the album keeps Anita nicely in line, ... LP, Vinyl record album
