Getz/Gilberto

LP (Item 8124) Verve, 1963 — Condition: Very Good-
Gatefold
Also available
Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto — Getz/Gilberto (mono & stereo mixes with bonus tracks) ... CD 6.99

A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with guitarist Joao Gilberto really pushed the format over the top – thanks in part to the vocals of Gilberto's lovely wife Astrud, who'd never sung in the studio before this famous recording! The record created a sound that was copied endlessly, and which catapulted Astrud to unbelievable fame worldwide – even though she was only included in the session at the last minute, because Joao couldn't sing in English – and the mix of Stan's tenor and Joao's guitar is wonderful – and backed throughout by this light, lilting bossa nova rhythms. Titles include the classic recording of "Girl From Ipanema", plus loads of other bossa classics like "Desafinado", "Cocovado", "O Grande Amor", and "Vivo Sonhando".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto

Getz/Gilberto #2
Verve, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold
A very different record than the first collaboration between Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto – but that's also one of the things that makes it great! The album's more of a split LP than a shared one – as side one features a live performance from the great mid 60s Stan Getz quartet that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cal Tjader

Soul Sauce
Verve, 1964. Very Good-
Arguably THE classic Cal Tjader album of the 60s – a landmark album that crossed over equally into Latin, jazz, and mainstream audiences – and a stone cooker that's filled with smoking little grooves! The set's probably best known for its title track "Soul Sauce" – one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good+
A classic 50s collection of Verve material by Charlie Parker – and one of those records that will definitely help you understand his genius right from the start! The lineup here is slightly large – wonderful arrangements by Joe Lipman that are a bit orchestral, with strings as well ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good-
An unusual Verve album from Oscar Peterson, and one that really lives up to its title! There's no drummer on the album at all – just bass from either Ray Brown or Major Holley – which leaves plenty of space for Oscar's work on the keys of the piano, opening up warmly with a really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Hodges

Castle Rock
Verve/Norgran, 1952. Very Good-
An undisputed Verve classic, and proof that Johnny Hodges could make damn good records away from Duke Ellington! The set features a number of small groupings of Ellington players – like Al Sears, Billy Strayhorn, Lawrence Brown, and others – but the sound is quite different than with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1960. Very Good
Herb Ellis pays homage to one of the first great jazz guitarists – the legendary Charlie Christian, certainly one of the first true soulful talents to emerge on the instrument! The set's one of Ellis' nicer ones for Verve – and although it mentions Christian in the title, there's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Got My Mojo Workin'
Verve, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold
The title's a bit bluesy, and the record is too – one of the grittier collaborations between Hammond legend Jimmy Smith and ultra-hip arranger Oliver Nelson – who manages to make the whole thing come across with all the right soul styles in the end! There's definitely a nod to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Down Home/Verve, Late 50s. Very Good
Sullivan plays solo piano versions of a number of Fats Waller tunes such as "Ain't Misbehavin", "Black And Blue", and "Keep Out Of Mischief Now", as well as a number of his own compositions such as "In The Middle Of A Kiss", "Just Strolling", "B ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1959. Very Good
Cole Porter's tunes are great enough on their own, but Oscar really opens them up on this set – picking up the inherent rhythms in the numbers and really working them over – in a way that makes the outing one of the most lively in Peterson's songbook series for Verve! Oscar's fluid ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good-
One of Oscar Peterson's few albums with a larger group – featuring some great arrangements from Russ Garcia! Titles include "Blues For Big Scotia", "Con Alma", "Cubano Chant", "OP", and "Little Pea's Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good+
An unusual pairing, but a great Stitt set from Verve – recorded with a west coast group that also includes Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and even a bit of Jimmy Giuffre near the end! Titles include "Down Country", "Downtown", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobbi Humphrey

Satin Doll
Blue Note, 1974. Very Good-
Fabulous stuff – one of the legendary albums that funky flute player Bobbi Humphrey cut with producer Larry Mizell! The record's a prime example of the Mizell genius at work – as Larry's arranged these fantastic backdrops for Bobbi's flute – soaring keyboard lines, layers and ... LP, Vinyl record album
