CD

✈

The first album ever from Pinky Winters – a beautiful little set that already has the singer reaching some great heights in her music! The feel of the record is quite similar to some of the vocal sessions on Bethlehem from the mid 50s – particularly the Chris Connors albums – and Pinky sits nicely alongside some small group backing from Bud Lavin on piano, Jim Wolf on bass, and Stan Levey on drums! As with a Bethlehem date, the charm here comes not from the songs, or the arrangements – but from the personal, relaxed way that Pinky puts together her performance – free of cliche, and really crafted in that freshly intimate style of jazz singing that was just coming into play when Winters hit the west coast. Titles include "Cool Sazerac", "This Can't Be Love", "Darn That Dream", "The World Is Your Balloon", and "Little Girl Blue".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print – comes in a cool LP style sleeve!)

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.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.

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
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used
Given what a freewheeling, open-minded, and lyrical jazz singer Mark Murphy is, it's hard to imagine him really loving "the blues" – and fortunately, most of that love is extended in the title, because the album itself is less of the blues effort that you might think. True, the ... CD

ABC-Paramount Years

We love Jackie & Roy! This hip swinging husband/wife team are one of the high spots in the history of jazz vocals, and until now, most of their ABC recordings from the 50's have been damn hard to find. Now, this cool 16 track set brings together some of their best moments on ABC. The tracks ... CD
