Jackie Paris Sound

LP (Item 78685) East West, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+

A pretty obscure record by Jackie Paris – a light-voiced jazz singer who cut some key albums in the 50s! The set was very briefly issued by East West, a short-lived Atlantic Records subsidiary – and features Paris singing to some great small group accompaniment from players that include Barry Galbraith on guitar, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Joe Benjamin on drums. The feel is easy and laidback – in the same intimate small group vocal style used by Joe Derise, Matt Dennis, and others of the great lost male jazz singer era of the time. Titles include "It's Only A Paper Moon", "On A Slow Boat To China", "Until The Real Thing Comes Along", "We Three", "I've Got A Pocketful Of Dreams", "This Is My Night To Dream", and "This Year's Kisses".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing, with deep groove! Vinyl has a few light surface marks from the old inner sleeve, but this is a nice copy overall.)

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.

Wing, Mid 50s. Very Good
One of the first albums ever cut by Jackie Paris – an excellent male singer from the 50s, of the same generation as Mark Murphy and Bobby Troup, but who unfortunately never made a name as big as either of those two. This set has Jackie singing with arrangements by Manny Albam – fairly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra

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

Richard Harris

Tramp Shining
ABC, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
Pretty stunning work from the team of Richard Harris & Jimmy Webb – a shining point in both of their careers! Harris wasn't much of a singer, and was mostly known as an actor before these two albums. He teamed up with Jimmy Webb as the perfect foil for some of Webb's late sixties song-st ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jo Grinage

Ode To Kim
Chiaroscuro, 1976. Near Mint-
A very cool set – a mix of jazz vocals, righteous ideas, and some nicely complex instrumentation – a bit like the hippest territory that Carmen McRae was hitting at the start of the 70s! The great Nadi Qamar directs the group, and handles the arrangements – and players include a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ella Fitzgerald

Sunshine Of Your Love
MPS (Germany), 1969. Near Mint-
Very cool, very groovy, and one of Ella Fitzgerald's hippest albums of the 60s! The set was recorded in San Francisco in the late 60s, but was issued by MPS in Germany as proof that the label always had an ear for bringing something different out of a mainstream artist. And although live, the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Lee Wilson & Bond Street

Shout For Trane
Why Not (Japan), 1976. Near Mint-
Maybe the best Joe Lee Wilson album you can ever get! Joe Lee Wilson's got a spiritual jazz vocal style that's in the vein of Leon Thomas, but which often falls short of Thomas' greatness on other recordings – yet here, though, he's totally great – hitting a beautifully soulful vein ...

Skyline, Mid 70s. Very Good-

The strongest number on the set is a sweetly-sung version of "One Note Samba" – using Jon Hendricks' lyrics, and done ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clare Fischer

Manteca!
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of our favorite albums ever from the great Clare Fischer – and one of the first to really show his special talents at their best! The sound here is a wonderful blend of jazz, Latin, and Brazilian modes – and in addition to piano, Clare plays plenty of organ on the date – ... LP, Vinyl record album
