Colorful Percussions Of Arthur Lyman

LP (Item 8613) Hi Fi, 1962 — Condition: Very Good+

Arthur Lyman's percussions were always pretty colorful, but they sound especially so on this set – a record that has the group coming off with a bit more sensitivity than usual! The music here is really great – a stunning array of percussion techniques, odd sounds, and some jazzier riffs – all quite different than some of the work that Lyman did with Martin Denny, and with a great ear for the overall sound of each tune. Players include John Kramer on bass and flute, Harold Chang on bongos, and Lyman on vibes – and titles include "Rhumba Rhapsody", "I Talked To The Trees", "Blue Hawaii", "Aloha No Honolulu", "Carabunta", "Tangi Tiki", "Geisha Waltz" and "Moanin".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Raymond Scott

Everest, Late 50s. Very Good
The softer sound of Raymond Scott – not as way-out and wild as you'd know from his better-publicized work on classic cartoons – but still plenty darn great overall! The album's heavy with strings – billed as "swinging" on the cover, but a bit more "swaying" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
Bossa guitar, dreamy orchestrations, and a wonderful American take on the Brazilian sound of the 60s – served up with sparkling Capitol Records production in a set that's easily one of the greatest by guitarist Laurindo Almeida! Almeida's guitar is matched here with some lightly jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sounds Orchestral

Soul Of Sounds Orchestral
Parkway, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
There's not as much "soul" as you'd expect here from some of the later work of Sounds Orchestral – but the record's a real mid 60s feather in the cap of arranger John Schroeder and pianist Johnny Pearson – the pair who came together wonderfully on these early sides that helped ...

New Thresholds In Sound
RCA, 1963. Very Good+
Sid Ramin at his most dynamic – heard here on this sweet RCA session from the early 60s, in modes that really show the same kind of arrangements that Sid was doing for TV at the time! The feel of the record really lives up to the "new thresholds" title – as Ramin pushes the ... LP, Vinyl record album

In The Mood
Columbia, 1979. Very Good
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too!
