King Pleasure Sings/Annie Ross Sings

CD (Item 840008) Prestige/OJC, Early 50s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

CD


A record that revolutionized the concept of jazz vocals in the 50s – thanks to famous performances by Annie Ross and King Pleasure! The tracks on the LP include Ross' early interpretations of Wardell Gray's classics "Twisted" and "Farmer's Market", and the King Pleasure set includes classics like "Red Top", "This Is Always", "Sometimes I'm Happy", and his great duet with Jon Hendricks, "Don't Get Scared". A landmark LP of jazz vocal sides, and one that no fan of vocalese should be without. (Early CD pressing with the same 12 tracks as the original LP.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Prestige, 1963. Used
Extra-soulful magic from Etta Jones – a great little session for Prestige that has her singing with Kenny Burrell on all tracks, working with a varied lineup of musicians that includes Larry Young on organ on about half the tracks, and piano from Detroit modernist Kenny Cox on the others! ... CD
Drive Archive, Mid 40s. Used
This album is a collection of Gaillard's work from the mid-1940s that apparently doesn't turn up in too many other places. Gaillard plays with an all-star bunch of musicians including Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bam Brown, Howard McGhee, Zutty Singleton, Lucky Thompson, Jack McVea, Dodo ... CD
Body & Soul
Prestige/OJC, 1968. Used
Seminal work from one of the hippest jazz singers ever – a session that showed the world that Eddie Jefferson was firmly back in business during the 60s! The set's got a really rollicking feel, and a bit more influence from soul than the bop of Eddie's roots – with elements of gospel ... CD

Tony Bennett Bill Evans Album
Fantasy/OJC, 1975. Used
If you've ever doubted the real jazz sensibility of Tony Bennett, then this is an album to change your mind – because Tony's working here in a marvelously unadorned setting – with only the piano of Bill Evans to back him up! The record's a rare gem from years after Bennett was cracking ... CD

Afro Blue
Trio/AMJ (Japan), 1974. Used
One of the greatest jazz vocal albums of all time – and one of the first true moments of genius from a young Dee Dee Bridgewater! The album's a Japanese only release (proof that they're always hipper to our jazz artists than we are!) – and it features Dee Dee singing material that's ... CD

Prestige/Victor (Japan), 1961. Used
One of a few rare sides cut by vocalist Betty Roche – a really wonderful singer from the end of the 50s who should have been huge – at least given the quality of records like this! The delightful Roche's vocals are backed by a mellow quartet featuring Jimmy Neely on piano and Wally ... CD
Swing Around Rosie
Coral/MCA (Japan), 1959. Used
Rosie's always been a heck of a jazz singer, but she doesn't always get to show her chops on record – which is why this late 50s session is such a treat! Backings are by the Buddy Cole trio (with Buddy on both piano and organ!) – a now-forgotten group that were frequently called upon ... CD
Muse, 1979. Used
Humes is on vocals – with backing from Arnett Cobb and Buddy Tate on tenor, Eddie Vinson on alto, and Gerald Wiggins on piano! CD
