Elliot Lawrence Big BandSwings Cohn & Kahn ... CD
Fantasy, Mid 50s. Used ... $9.99
Bold work from Elliot Lawrence – one of the groovier big band leaders on the west coast of the 50s – and one of the few who really found a way to mix older modes and some of the modern changes going on at the time! Lawrence's music almost always has a groove – his audience were often dancers at some of the bigger spots on the coast – but he also finds a way to fold in some strong solo work too, but all without some of the more academic tones that would come from a group like Stan Kenton's. Key soloists here include Al Cohn and Zoot Sims on tenor, Hal McKusick on alto, Nick Travis and Ernie Royal on trumpets, and Eddie Bert and Urbie Green on trombone – and the set features material from the albums Plays Tiny Kahn & Johnny Mandel Arrangements, Swinging At The Steel Pier, and Plays For Swinging Dancers. Titles include "Blue Room", "Who Fard That Shot", "Blues Alley", "Ponce", "Tenderly", "Walkin My Baby Back Home", "Hackin Around", "Cupcake", "Ivy Walk", "Handmade", "Nightfall", "Jazz Lullaby", and "Mood Midnight".

Ann GilbertIn A Swinging Mood ... LP
RCA, 1956. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Ann Gilbert's definitely in a swinging mode here – thanks to some great arrangements from Elliot Lawrence, who helps keep a hip, modern feel going on – and avoids some of the obvious vocal cliches of the time! Ann's a singer with a rich voice, both on ballads and uptempo numbers – but one that's never too overly-emotive or sentimental, in a way that makes her a perfect fit for Lawrence's well-penned backings here – supported by players who include Al Cohn on tenor, Nick Travis on trumpet, Eddie Bert on trombone, and Hal McKusick on alto sax. Titles include "Sweet & Lovely", "Lover Come Back To Me", "What'll I Do", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Love Is Just Around The Corner", and "Back In Your Own Backyard". LP, Vinyl record album

Jule Styne/Bob MerrillSugar ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Sealed ... $1.99
A surprisingly groovy musical based on the film Some Like It Hot – one of the better of a slew of 20s-set musicals that played big on Broadway in the 60s! The music and lyrics are by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill, respectively – but the thing that really makes the soundtrack itself work is the lead performances by Robert Morse and Tony Roberts – the former always a charming presence on the stage, the latter a surprisingly good straight man. Elaine Joyce handles the Marilyn Monroe character – and the music sports some nicely jazzy arrangements by Elliott Lawrence. Titles include "It's Always Love", "Hey Why Not", "Sugar", "November Song", and "Sun On My Face". LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap has some sticker remnants. Cover has a cut corner.)
