Laurindo Almeida & Bud ShankBrazilliance ... LP
World Pacific, Early 50s. Very Good ... $11.99
A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. The mix of alto and guitar, in a jazzy vein, but with Latiny rhythms, is very similar to the early bossa jazz recordings – and even more so to the later American ones by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Supposedly, original 10" LPs of the material made their way to Brazil, and later influenced Jobim and Gilberto. Although we can't confirm that rumor entirely, you'll sure hear a similarity, and even if you don't, the stuff's still pretty darn great. Titles include "Terra Seca", "Amor Flamenco", "Atabaque", "No No", "Noctambulism", "Tocata", and "Carinoso". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 60s pressing.)

Stan Getz & Laurindo AlmeidaStan Getz With Laurindo Almeida ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of long tracks, and nice laid-back solos by both Getz and Almeida – who's getting in some of his few jazz licks of the 60s here, working in a groove similar to that of his earlier sides with Bud Shank, but which sounds almost even better in the languid company of Getz. Cuts include "Outra Vez", "Winter Moon", "Maracatu-Too", and "Samba Da Sahra". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing with deep groove.)

Modern Jazz Quartet & Laurindo AlmeidaCollaboration ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Moody vibes and light guitar – a wonderful meeting of two unique talents – the third stream jazz of the Modern Jazz Quartet, and the introspective guitar of Laurindo Almeida! The session blends together a host of different influences – from classical guitar to bossa nova to modern jazz – all with the light and spacious touches of the MJQ at their best, recorded with some really warm brilliance that makes the whole set sparkle! Titles include "Foi A Saudade", "One Note Samba", "Fugue In A Minor", "Silver", "Trieste", and "Concierto De Arajunez". LP, Vinyl record album

Bud Shank & Laurindo AlmeidaBrazilliance Vol 2 ... LP
World Pacific, 1958. Near Mint- ... $14.99
5 years after they made their first set of groundbreaking Braziliany jazz tracks together, Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida went back into the studio to record another great batch for Pacific Jazz. That second set of sessions is captured here in its entirety, and it features Shank and Almeida playing with the looser rhythm team of Gary Peacock and Chuck Flores on a number of short groovy tracks that clearly had a big influence on the bossa generation. 10 tracks are included in this volume: "Simpatico", "Little Girl Blue", "Mood Antigua", "The Color Of Her Hair", "Carioca Hills", "Choro In A", "Nocturno", "Lonely", "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" and "Rio Rhapsody". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaViva Bossa Nova! ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – a great 60s update to the groove he first forged in the 50s with Bud Shank – featuring even more swinging rhythms, inventive instrumentation, and a slightly larger group with players who include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Howard Roberts on guitar, Bob Cooper on tenor, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Justin Gordon on flute, and Shelly Manne, Chico Guerrero, and Milt Holland on percussion! The use of organ is especially nice – a warm wave of sound on top of some great bossa rhythms – and titles include "Naked City Theme", "Teach Me Tonight", "Desafinado", "Mr Lucky", "Theme From Route 66", and "One Note Samba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing.)

✨✧ Lenita BrunoWork Of Love ... LP
Nucleus, 1967. Sealed ... $4.99
A light and dreamy set of Brazilian vocal tracks – recorded in 1967, and featuring the voice of singer Lenita Bruno, a strong 60s talent with a style that's somewhat like Sylvia Telles. Arrangements on the set are by Clare Fischer – who plays piano, organ, and electric harpsichord in a small combo that also includes guitar by Laurindo Almeida, flute by Bud Shank, and percussion by Paulinho. Some tracks augment the ensemble with a string quartet – who give the material an appropriately sad tone, perfect for Lenita's blue-styled vocals. Includes a nicely grooving version of "Chove Chuva", plus the tracks "Wave", "Winter Moon", "Sing Sing More", "Dindi", "Stay My Love", and "Someone To Light Up My Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing!)

Stan KentonInnovations Orchestra ... CD
Capitol/Jazz Heritage, Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
A brilliant collection of work from Stan Kenton – recordings from his Innovations Orchestra, the groundbreaking group from the years 1950 and 1951, which featured players that include Art Pepper, Bob Cooper, Shorty Rogers, and Laurindo Almeida! The work features Kenton in some of his most modern modes – taking the broad range of colors and tones he first started forging in the late 40s, and fusing them onto some modern jazz ideals of the early 50s. The result is some incredible music that still sounds extremely fresh today – tracks that still have a swinging rhythm and jazz-based solos, but which also have a keen ear towards the 20th Century Classical Music of mid century. Titles include "Solitaire", "Soliloquy", "June Christy", "Shelly Manne", "House Of Strings", "Cello-logy", "Art Pepper", "Halls Of Brass", "In Veradero", "Blues In Riff", and "Coop's Solo". 2CDs, great notes, and 30 tracks in all!

LA 4Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte ... LP
East Wind (Japan), 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
A beautiful group, and one with a very unique sound – a style that draws from the early 50s experiments in Brazilian jazz by Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida – but which also moves the approach into even more sophisticated 70s territory! The quartet features Almeida on acoustic guitar and Bud Shank on some wonderful reeds – plus bass from Ray Brown and drums from Shelly Manne, but players who are open to all the new ideas of Bud and Laurindo, but who can also throw in a stronger groove when needed. The album's a wonderful experiment in really pushing the envelope of jazz expression further – but never in any sort of outside ways – and titles include a reading of Ravel's "Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte", plus "C'Est What", "Corcovado", "Autumn Leaves", "Samba De Orfeu", and "Reveil". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with insert. Cover has an Audio Source sticker on back.)

Pete RugoloBehind Brigitte Bardot ... LP
Warner, 1960. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A very cool record! The album's sort of an American tribute to the emerging French sex goddess Brigitte Bardot – one that features a gatefold cover with a wraparound photo of Brigitte, and some nice images on the inside. Music on the set is by Pete Rugolo – the master arranger who'd worked with June Christy, Stan Kenton, and others – and although Bardot doesn't sing or even make an appearance on the set, Pete does more than enough of a good job of conjuring up her presence with a good selection of jazzy tunes. Players include Pete Candoli and Jack Sheldon on trumpets, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Paul Horn and Bud Shank on reeds, and Laurindo Almeida on guitar. Gloria Wood sings on one track – and titles include "Arsenic Blues", "Paris BB", "Jeff's Blues", "Mambo Bardot", "A T'Aimer", and "The Night Heaven Fell". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinGone With The Wave – Modern Sounds Go Surfing ... LP
Colpix, 1965. Very Good ... $19.99
Not a surf record – but a wonderful batch of groovy groovy jazz! Lalo penned this score for a Bruce Brown-like surfing documentary in the mid 60s – but instead of the usual guitar riffing and bongo drumming on such a score, he used a lot of jagged jazzy lines – working in a bit of light bossa, some heavier Latin rhythms, and plenty of cool instrumentation! The players alone make the set worth having – especially the percussion from Milt Holland, Francisco Aguabella, and Shelly Manne – as well as the light guitar touches from Howard Roberts, Bob Bain, and Laurindo Almeida. Paul Horn plays some great alto sax and flute on the set, Victor Feldman's on piano, and Frank Rosolino's on trombone – and Lalo changes up the instrumentation from track to track to really keep the overall feel of the set incredibly fresh! Titles include "Breaks", "Gone With The Wave", "Taco Taquito", "Halieva Blues", "A Taste Of Bamboo", "Aqua Blues", "Surf Waltz", and "Breaks Bossa Nova". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. NOTE – Cover is wrinkled on the bottom half, with an unglued bottom seam, and some marker on back.)

Kitty WhiteSweet Talk ... LP
Roulette, 1958. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of the fullest-staffed albums ever recorded by Kitty White – but a set that still gives her plenty private, personal space! The album features different groupings of players who include Benny Carter on alto, Ted Nash on tenor and flute, Harry Edison on trumpet, Larry Bunker on vibes, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Laurindo Almeida on guitar – plus some Latin percussion from Carlos Vidal on the bottom. Yet despite the presence of all of these players, many numbers have an up-close quality that makes us feel like we're hearing Kitty's moody vocals in the backroom of some private club in LA. Her phrasing is great throughout – articulate, but never too much so – and titles include "Lazy Afternoon", "It Was So Beautiful", "Alone Together", "Talk Me Some Sweet Talk", "Please Be Patient", and "Dat's Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Color bar pressing. Cover has a small split on the top seam.)
