Ebony In Rhythem

LP (Item 951399) Capitol (Canada), Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A very unusual set from 60s Canada – a set that features a unique blend of jazz, vocal, and Caribbean modes – all handled by the large ensemble pictured on the cover! Some tracks are vocal, some are instrumental, and there's a nicely varied approach throughout – all directed by leader Vernon Isaac, who plays tenor, alto, and vibes! (And PS – the "rhythem" spelling on the cover is intentional!)  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a small cutout hole.)

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.

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great lost chapter in the Cannonball/David Axelrod story! The record features Cannon's classic quintet performing some longer, more serious works with orchestral backing – and the sound is vaguely similar to some of Axelrod's "high concept" work for Capitol. The record features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Buckner

Rockin Hammond
Capitol, 1956. Very Good
A grooving set for Capitol, and one that features Milt Buckner both on organ and overdubbed piano – a blend that's pretty darn great, and which makes for some real twin-keyboard frenzy! The tunes are often upbeat and with an undercurrent of R&B – and guitar is by Everett Barksdale ... LP, Vinyl record album

Plas Johnson

This Must Be The Plas!
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
A gem of a session from tenorman Plas Johnson – recorded for Capitol with small group backing that includes organ, piano, vibes, and a bit of guitar – all grooving in a mode that's much more suited to Johnson's deeply riffing style than the easy arrangements of much of his other work. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ronnie Laws

Mr Nice Guy
Capitol, 1983. Near Mint-
Ronnie Laws really makes a big move into the soul field with this one – quite a big record for him back in the day, and a set that helped Laws reach an even wider audience at the time! Ronnie sings as much as playing sax on the set – and he also handles a fair bit of keyboards too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Adventures In Jazz
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
Stan reprises his famous modernist swing in a great little album that's one of his best works from the early 60s. The tracks are longish, with the mixture of dark shading and breakout solos that grace some of his best early work – and although the players in the group aren't the famous west ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Encores (10-inch)
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good
A collection of some of Kenton's early 50s hits. Most of the tracks that are included were arranged by Pete Rugolo and they include "Peg O' My Heart", "He's Funny That Way", "Capitol Punishment", "Painted Rhythm", "Lover", "Somnambulism", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Adventures In Time
Capitol, 1962. Very Good+
Later modern work by Kenton – but still pretty darn great! The album features arrangements by Johnny Richards – clever explorations in time that still swing with that nice Richards touch, played by a group that features a number of lesser-known younger players, including Don Menza, who' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
One of the hippest Stan Kenton albums of the 60s – a set of original compositions by Dee Barton – Stan's drummer at the time, and a composer to rival the great ones who contributed to the Kenton group of the 40s and 50s! Barton's work here is totally great – modern, but never too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCann

Talk To The People
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good-
One of the best of Les McCann's 70s Atlantic recordings, and one that captures him with a lot of fire and funkiness – and none of the looser modes of other recordings from the time! Les sings on about half the cuts – but the focus is still quite strongly on his funky jazz, which makes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo Schifrin

Black Widow
CTI, 1976. Very Good
Funky 70s work from film score maestro Lalo Schifrin – served up with a bit of a disco twist, and plenty of the electric jazz funk elements that were showing up in his soundtracks at the time! Lalo's on keyboards, playing a cool host of electric ones that give the record a nice spacey sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band

Tales of A Courtesan (Oirantan)
RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
Toshiko Akiyoshi really took off as a jazz musician in the 70s – already a great pianist known for her bop-like dexterity in the 50s, a compelling soloist and songwriter with her modern sound in the 60s, and a hell of a talent at the helm of a series of amazing big band records with reedman ... LP, Vinyl record album

Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big Band

Road Time
RCA, 1976. Near Mint- 2LP
A great little live set from the glory days of the Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band – a series of performances from Japan, recorded in 1976, all featuring the ensemble at its best! The double-length nature of the record takes the group even farther than usual – really letting ... LP, Vinyl record album
