Chris Connor & Maynard FergusonDouble Exposure ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Near Mint- ... $16.99
One of Chris Connor's standout albums for Atlantic Records – and a session that actually makes us really appreciate the presence of Maynard Ferguson! The album's got a bit more punch than some of Chris' other records for the label, and is a nice shift in mood after a series of sad, dreamy, sometimes sleepy albums of ballads and sadder songs. Chris still manages to get in some rich emotion on the set, but the overall sound is a bit more swinging and upbeat – with a good set of tunes that includes "Summertime", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "That's How It Went All Right", "It Never Entered My Mind", and "Black Coffee". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono red & purple label pressing. Includes the Atlantic inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and aging.)

Chris Connor & Maynard FergusonTwo's Company ... LP
Roulette, 1961. Very Good ... $1.99
Despite any prejudice you might have against Maynard Ferguson, he actually does a damn good job backing up Chris Connor's lovely voice on this record – probably because his band is super-hip, and includes players like Jaki Byard, Joe Farrell, and Rufus Jones. Connor is in fine icy form, as usual – and it's nice to hear her get a bit more jazzy backing than some of the more somber arrangements you'll hear on her Atlantic sessions. Titles include "The Wind", "Send For Me", "Where Do You Go?", and "Deep Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono color bar pressing with deep groove. Cover is completely split with clear tape on the top & bottom seams, staining & wear on the lower corner, light surface wear.)

Maynard FergusonChameleon ... LP
Columbia, 1974. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Funky Maynard Ferguson – and one of his sweetest albums of the 70s! The set features a wonderful remake of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon" – done here as a big band version that countless other groups would copy during the 70s – in a way that almost showed that Maynard had a more farther-reaching influence at the time than Herbie! Other tracks are equally great – and mix in funky rhythms with some mellower moments – all topped by great solo work from players who include trombonist Randy Purcell, baritone saxophonist Bruce Johnstone, and keyboardist Alan Zavod. Apart from "Chameleon", other titles include great covers of Wings' "Jet" and Stevie Wonders' "Livin For the City" – plus "La Fiesta", "Superbone Meets The Bad Man", and "Gospel John".

✨✧ Maynard FergusonMaynard Ferguson & His Birdland Dream Band Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
RCA/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A double-length CD that features both original albums recorded in the 50s by Maynard Ferguson's Birdland Dream Band – a dream band indeed, as the set features Maynard working with some excellent players who manage to come together tightly as a unit, then break out in really strong and hard-blown solos! Even in these early recordings, the style of the Ferguson group is firmly in place – incredible tightness, but a real respect for the soloists – and a power to kick it louder and larger than even in a small group setting. Players include Herb Geller, Al Cohn, Hank Jones, Budd Johnson, and Ernie Wilkins – and titles on this set includes all the master takes for 24 titles that include "Maynard The Fox", "The Wailing Boat", "Somebody Wants Me Down There", "Little Girl Kimbi", "Tell Me Funky", "You Said It", "Nightmare Alley", "Free Lee", "Geller's Cellar", "Sleep Softly", "Straight Up", and "Button Nose".

Roulette, 1959. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Put aside your reservations about Maynard Ferguson, because this is a very hip little record – one of Maynard's excellent early sessions for Roulette Records, and like the rest, done with a group that's overflowing with top-shelf players! Ferguson's definitely got a great ear for putting together an ensemble – because players here include Don Ellis on trumpet, Slide Hampton and Don Sebesky on trombones, and Joe Zawinul on piano – all working strongly alongside some lesser-known talents who are equally great! And although the group is large, there's a definite modern edge to the set – strong writing, unusual timings, and some sharp-edged solos that really make some of the longer tracks bristle. Titles include versions of Benny Golson's "Starfire" and "Night Life", Marty Paich's "Lonely Time", and Slide Hampton's "The Mark Of Jazz" – plus "Oleo" and "Back In The Satellite Again", the latter of which was written by Willie Maiden, one of the tenor players on the date.

There's definitely lots of brass here – as you might guess from the title – but never so much so that it gets in the way of individual soloing by Maynard Ferguson! The date features Maynard working with arrangements by Willie Maiden, Al Cohn, Ernie Wilkins, and Bill Holman – all for a largeish group that's wonderfully hip – Bobby Timmons on piano, Anthony Ortega on alto, Jimmy Ford on alto and tenor, Willie Maiden on tenor, Tate Houston on baritone, Richard Evans on bass, and Larry Bunker on drums – plus some added trumpets and trombones! Maynard himself plays both instruments on the date, and the album also feature some surprising guest vocals by Irene Kral on 4 tracks – spicing up the instrumental blend with lyrics on "Moonlight In Vermont", "I Hadn't Anyone Till You", "Imagination", and "The Song Is You". Instrumental tracks include "Jeepers Creepers", "I Never Knew", "A Foggy Day", "Love Me Or Leave Me", and "The Lamp Is Low". CD

Columbia, 1971. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Maynard Ferguson's looking a bit shaggy on the cover of this one, but his grooves are as tight as ever – and packed with a good degree of funk in the arrangements too! Maynard's returning here to the great territory of the MF Horn album – and using help from British arrangers that include Keith Mansfield, John Cameron, and Kenny Wheeler – all of whom help push the already-blasting MF groove even further into the stratosphere! There's a great mix of American pop, British groovy, and jazzy soloing to the set – and somehow the construction of the tunes is actually a perfect place for the tricks, twists, and turns that Maynard was bringing into his solo work at the time. Titles include "The Serpent", "Move Over", "Aquarius", "Your Song", "Stoney End", "Living In The Past", and "Fire & Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Maynard FergusonNew Sounds Of Maynard Ferguson/Come Blow Your Horn ... CD
Fresh Sound New Talent (Spain), 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two great albums from a time when Maynard Ferguson was really hitting his stride – back to back on one CD! New Sounds is a really nice set, and very much in the best spirit of the excellent early 60s albums that Maynard cut for Roulette! As with those, there's some great players working in the group – a lineup that includes Willie Maiden on tenor sax, Dusko Goykovich (horribly misspelled in the notes) on trumpet, Ronnie Cuber on Baritone, and Lanny Morgan on alto – all of whom get to step out in short but soulful solos that make the tracks bristle with more excitement than you'd think. And as with other Cameo jazz sides from the time, Rufus Jones is on drums – bringing in a nice little punch to the tracks that kicks them up in just the right sort of way. Titles include the originals "Bossa Nova De Funk", "Maine Bone", and "At The Sound Of The Trumpet" – plus a version of "Watermelon Man", and the bonus track "The Song Is You". Come Blow Your Horn is a surprisingly nice album of big band material from Maynard – recorded at a time when he was just getting his start as a big name, and still handling some hip enough players to make the groove swing! One track claims to have a "Dusan Goykovich" as a soloist – who we can only imagine to be our man Dusko Goykovich – and the record has plenty other nice solos by Lanny Morgan. Arrangements are by Don Sebesky, Al Cohn, Willie Maiden, and Oliver Nelson – and tracks include "Groove", "Whisper Not", "Blues For A Four String Guitar", "New Hope", and "Naked City Theme". CD

Jazz City/Fresh Sound (Spain), Early 1950s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really great collection of an under-documented side of the career of trumpeter Maynard Ferguson – early singles recorded for Capitol and Mercury Records, done at a time when he was with the Stan Kenton band, but really stepping out as a leader! The format here is almost similar to that of the Kenton group at the time – with tunes that are all-out swinging one moment, then more laidback and concerned with color and tone the next. Many of the players are similar too – and include Shorty Rogers, Milt Bernhart, John Graas, Bob Cooper, Shelly Manne, Bud Shank, Bob Gordon, and Art Pepper. 4 tracks are from sessions that have Ferguson's group backing singer Kay Brown – and the rest are instrumental outings with varying lineups, featuring arrangements by Willie Maiden, Pete Rugolo, Shorty Rogers, and Joe Roland. Titles include "Band Ain't Draggin", "Short Wave", "What's New", "The Hot Canary", "Roses All The Way", "And So I Waited Around", "Wow", and "Willie Nillie". CD

A cool cooker from Maynard Ferguson – and a set that has all the upbeat tones you'd expect from the title, but lots of funky currents underneath! The set really sparkles right from the start – and has that sweet vibe that Maynard was really getting perfect on these late 70s records for Columbia – jazzy fusion that's tight, but never too uptight – with lots of room for sweet solos from the leader himself, plus Bill Hannon on moog, John Qdini on guitar, Eric Traub on tenor, and Mike Migliore on alto. Titles include a famous working of Earth Wind & Fier's "Fantasy" – plus "Battlestar Galactica", "MF Carnival", "Baker Street", "Birdland", "How Ya Doin Baby", and "Stella By Starlight".

✨✧ Maynard FergusonDancing Sessions (Plays Jazz For Dancing/Let's Face The Music & Dance) ... CD
Roulette/Jazz Beat (Spain), 1959/1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 lesser-known gems from a young Maynard Ferguson – back to back on a single CD! First up is Plays Jazz For Dancing – a record that hones the usual Ferguson groove a bit more for the dancefloor, yet still keeps in plenty of room for the sorts of solo space that Maynard first forged earlier in the 50s! The lineup here features some great work from Willie Maiden on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, and Jimmy Ford on alto sax – as well as performances from Maynard himself on trumpet, valve trombone, and even a bit of euphonium. Titles include "Hey There", "Where's Teddy", "Soft Winds", "Tis Autumn", "Secret Love", "I'll Be Seeing You", and "If I Should Lose You". Let's Face The Music & Dance follows in very similar form – a well-crafted batch of big band numbers from Maynard Ferguson, with more than enough swing and sway for the dancefloor, but also that stronger sense of personality and power you'd expect from Maynard. As usual for the time, the lineup of players is totally great – a surprising batch of hipsters that includes Jaki Byard on piano, Slide Hampton on trombone, Joe Farrell on tenor and clarinet, and Willie Maiden on tenor and flute – plys some great drum work from Rufus Jones, who really keeps a nice punch in the rhythms. Titles include "Let's Do It", "Spring Is Here", "Teach Me Tonight", "Let's Face The Music & Dance", and "Mangos". CD

Maynard Ferguson live – and still holding onto all the great sort of grooves he cooked up in the studio during the 70s! The performance is from a 1984 appearance at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall – and Maynard's got the group in super-tight, super-soulful formation – with a very strong focus on the rhythms at the bottom, but plenty of room for spirited solos over the top – including work by Ferguson on trumpet, Tim Reis on soprano and alto, Steve Wiest on trombone, and Gregg Bissonette on drums. Titles include "Coconut Champagne", "Fireshaker", "Ganesha", "Bebop Buffet", and "South 21st Shuffle". CD

Roulette, 1958. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Maynard Ferguson's got a message from Newport – and that message is loud, proud, and pretty darn compelling – one that states a whole new level of genius for Maynard in years to come! Ferguson had previously already been a strong soloist and a good arranger – but here, he really takes off – working with an amazing lineup of young modernists, on material that provides a breathtaking array of new ideas, while still hitting a mighty swing – and all while allowing room for all the great voices who make up the group! Musicians include Slide Hampton and Don Sebesky on trombone, Willie Maiden and Carmen Leggio on tenor, John Bunch on piano, and Jimmie Ford on alto – all players who shine on titles that include "The Fugue", "Fan It Janet", "Tag Team", "The Waltz", "Slide's Derangement", and "Three Little Foxes".

A sweet jazzy storm from Maynard Ferguson – a record from the early 80s, but one that's still got all the dynamic power and groove of Maynard's Columbia Records classics from the decade before! As with those, the approach here mixes electricity in the rhythms with sublime horn charts over the top – allowing Maynard plenty of room to solo on trumpet, but with additional flourishes from the rest of the group – making for soulful sounds with a strong sense of groove, but in a mode that's got more of a bite than smoother fusion from the time. Titles include "Jar Star", "Admiral's Horn", "Latino Lovewalk", "Hit In The Head", "Go With The Flo", and a groovy cover of "Sesame Street". CD

Mainstream/Mobile Fidelity, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Maynard Ferguson cut an undue number of excellent records in his early years – and this smoking set is definitely part of that group! At the time, Maynard was one of the few cats trying to find a way to move the larger band forward in jazz – finding ways to groove like Basie, but also add in some higher ideals, too – all with a surprisingly soulful current that definitely earns the title, and hints at his funky work to come in the 70s! Here, things are more shaded in blue tones and given a nice rhythmic kick – and as always with Maynard, the choice of band members is great – as the lineup features Charlie Mariano on alto, Don Rader on trumpet, Phil Bodner on reeds, Richard Davis on bass, and Mel Lewis on drums – working with strong creative energy on titles that include "What'd I Say", "Baltimore Oriole", "I Believe To My Soul", "I've Got A Woman", and "Alright OK You Win".

Maynard really grooves it up on this one – playing with a group that's even larger than some of his early 70s funk sessions, in a style that's got traces of disco and R&B-styled fusion! The set was arranged, conducted, and produced by Jay Chataway – who's going for a nice smooth mode on most of the cuts, almost in the slick manner of some late 70s cop show soundtrack. Tracks are a bit longer than usual, with more room for the groove, and titles include the originals "Oasis" and "El Vuelvo", a surprisingly nice disco take on "Maria", and the cuts "Airegin" and "Star Wars".

The record's a tight batch of groovers, with production and keyboards by Bob James – and the whole thing's a mixture of big band funk and electronics that's simply out of this world! Side one kicks off with two massive numbers – the Arp-heavy "Cheshire Cat Walk", and the Kool & The Gang-ish "Primal Scream" – and both cuts are quite long, with loads of cool instrumental effects. Side two is a bit softer, but it does include a long keyboard groover called "Swamp". CD

Mercury/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1955/1956. Used ... $11.99
Great work from saxophonist Georgie Auld – a player who'd first shone brightly in earlier years, but who revived his career wonderfully in the 50s with sides like these! The style's pointed a bit towards an older jazz era – swinging bigger band tracks arranged by Billy May, but played with a fresher 50s approach by LA players that include Paul Smith, Maynard Ferguson, Frank Rosolino, Milt Bernhart, Ray Linn, and Barney Kessel – all coming together in tight formation to support Auld's raspy tenor sound in the lead! CD features 24 tracks from 2 different albums recorded for Mercury – with titles that include "Swingin In Moore Park", "I May Be Wrong", "My Blue Heaven", "Dinah", "For You", "Tippin In", "In The Land Of Hi Fi", "Got A Date With An Angel", "Laura", "Blue Lou", "Prisoner's Song", and "Sunday Kind Of Love".

One of the earliest sets issued under the name of the Lighthouse All-Stars – that hip assemblage of west coast players headed by bassist Howard Rumsey – hardly a household name on his own, but well-remembered for all the great work done at this famous club! The lineup is a who's who of key players on the west coast at the time – Shorty Rogers and Maynard Ferguson on trumpet, Jimmy Giuffre and Bob Cooper on tenor, Hampton Hawes on piano, Milt Bernhart on trombone, and Shelly Manne on drums – and some tracks are a bit longer than usual, offering up freer solo space than you're likely to get on other west coast dates – a key contribution of the All-Stars recording mode.

VariousJazz Am Rhein – 1967 to 1968 (6CD set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1967/1968. Used ... $89.99
Fantastic work from two different years of this important German Jazz Festival – material that provides a great live complement to some of the best studio jazz recordings of the late 60s European scene – such as those coming from the MPS label, and some of the record companies in Paris and London! The vibe here is mostly straight, but there are plenty of currents of modern, and maybe just a bit of free – and the set's especially great in illustrating the sort of unique groupings and musical moments that can make the jazz festival scene so rewarding! Material from 1967 includes three long tracks by the group of saxophonist Klaus Doldinger with organist Ingfried Hoffmann; a long performance from a big band led by Kurt Edelhagen, with work from trumpeters Shake Keane and Jimmy Deuchar, tenorists Wilton Gaynair and Karl Drewo, and altoist Derek Humble; four tracks by a quartet led by trumpeter Dusko Goykovich, with Bent Jaedig on tenor; two long improvisations from a group that features Manfred Schoof on trumpet, Gerd Dudek on tenor, Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, and Jaki Liebezeit on drums; one track by a quartet with Ted Curson on trumpet and Nick Bridnola on soprano sax; four long cuts by the Clarke Boland Sextet, with Sahib Shihab on flute and baritone, Ake Persson on trombone, and Idrees Sulieman on trumpet; a sweet large group led by organist Ingfried Hoffmann, and a few other hip cuts too. 1968 features work by a sextet led by bassist Peter Trunk, with Shake Keane on flugelhorn, Jiggs Whigham on trombone, and Rob Pronk on piano; four tracks by the Clarke Boland Big Band, with Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone; two cuts by the twin tenor group of Hank Mobley and Johnny Griffin; a vocal performance by Jon Hendricks with a Clarke Boland group with Johnny Griffin in the lead; twin trombones from the Slide Hampton and Ake Persson Quintet; hip work from the trio of pianist George Gruntz, bassist Henri Texier, and drummer Daniel Humair; a number of tight tracks from the Maynard Ferguson big band, with Pete King on tenor; and two shorter trio tracks from Joachim Kuhn. Like other Be Music titles, the presentation is great – a really well-done box, and big booklet of notes and images. CD

One of Doc Severinsen's sweet funky sets from the 70s – an album that features some great arrangements from Tom Scott, who really knows how to make things groove! The sound's a bit like some of the Maynard Ferguson albums on Columbia from the decade, but a bit warmer overall – fuller clubby rhythms mixed in with the jazz, but always at a level that's never too slick or commercial. Other players include Richard Tee on keyboards and Eric Gale on guitar – plus Scott on saxes – and there's almost a Kudu Records sort of feel to the record. Titles include "Shenandoah", "There Is A Girl", "Fernando's Fantasy", "Do It To It", and "Chicken Chatter". CD

The arrangements are nicely tasteful – electric, but never clunkily so, especially for the time – and Alpert's trumpet really does a great job of warming things up.

The style here is a bit more unusual than some Verve dates, though – maybe even more in the spontaneous spirit of a real jam session – with a lineup of all-stars that includes Clifford Brown, Clark Terry, and Maynard Ferguson on trumpets – plus Herb Geller on alto, Harold Land on tenor, Max Roach on drums, and either Richie Powell or Junior Mance on piano! There's a definite tie here to the Brown/Roach recordings for Emarcy – augmented by the presence of Powell and Land – but the others clearly change things up, and Dinah Washington even makes a vocal appearance on one track too. Titles include "What Is This Thing Called Love", "Darn That Dream", "Move", and a medley of "My Funny Valentine/Don't Worry Bout Me/Bess You Is My Woman/It Might As Well Be Spring". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label drummer logo pressing with deep groove! Cover has some light lifting of the paste-on image, which also has a touch of oxidation.)

✨✧ Russell Garcia/Frances FayeRussell Garcia & His Four Trombone Band (Four Horns & A Lush Life) ... CD
Bethlehem/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
Russ Garcia's got a big ol' smile on his face on the cover of this one – and it's no surprise, given the strength of the work on the set! The first 12 tracks on the CD are from Garcia's excellent Bethlehem album Four Horns & A Lush Life – one that has Russ leading a 4-horn frontline that includes Rosolino, Herbie Harper, Tommy Pederson, and Maynard Ferguson – with backing by a small rhythm group that includes Stan Levy, Red Mitchell, and Marty Paich. The resultant sound is a smooth wall of bass-y trombone sounds, and it works equally well on the album's mellow ballads and tighter west-coasty numbers. Tracks include "I'll Never Forget What's Her Name", "Zigeuner", "Limehouse Blues", "Lush Life", "Ramona", and "What Is This Thing Called Love?". The remaining 11 tracks on the set are from a 1955 Frances Faye session – one that also features Garcia's 4-trombone ensemble, backing Faye up with a fluid groove that's totally great! We're not always the biggest fan of Frances in the studio, but for this outing, she picks up a lot of bite from the Garcia arrangements – and gets a quality that brings a bit more grit into her presentation of the material. Titles include "Somebody Loves Me", "September In The Rain", "Toreador", "He's Funny That Way", "I've Got You Under My Skin", and "Love For Sale". CD

✨✧ Stan KentonNew Concepts Of Artistry In Rhythm ... CD
Capitol, 1952. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful modernist work from Kenton – one of the first albums to cull his genius together as a whole, filled with the kind of tracks that perfectly sum up his unique approach at the time! If you've ever wondered what makes Kenton so great, this is the album to begin with – as it's filled with fantastic original tunes that provide a shimmering solo showcase for work of players like Lee Konitz, Frank Rosolino, and Bill Holman. Titles include "23 N - 82 W", "Young Blood", "Improvisation", and the haunting "Invention For Guitar And Trumpet", which features Sal Salvador and a young Maynard Ferguson. CD adds 4 bonus tracks to the original 10" LP. CD

✨✧ Vido MussoSwingin'st ... LP
Crown, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Tight hard tenor work by the great Vido Musso – featuring a set of tracks that skirts between bop and R&B tenor tunes, with backing by a little combo that includes Chico Alvaraz and Maynard Ferguson on trumpets. Vido's got a tone that's just great – raw, with the reed almost blown out, but also still with enough composure to keep him more in the jazz range than the R&B one. Titles include "Vido's Boogie", "Rollin", "On Stage", "Movin On", and "Rockin Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam and a small sticker remnant.)

✨✧ Georgie AuldGeorgie Auld & His Hollywood All Stars Play The Swinging Arrangements Of Billy May ... CD
Jasmine, 1955/1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great work from saxophonist Georgie Auld – a player who'd first shone brightly in earlier years, but who revived his career wonderfully in the 50s with sides like these! The style's pointed a bit towards an older jazz era – swinging bigger band tracks arranged by Billy May, but played with a fresher 50s approach by LA players that include Paul Smith, Maynard Ferguson, Frank Rosolino, Milt Bernhart, Ray Linn, and Barney Kessel – all coming together in tight formation to support Auld's raspy tenor sound in the lead! CD features 24 tracks from 2 different albums recorded for Mercury – with titles that include "Swingin In Moore Park", "I May Be Wrong", "My Blue Heaven", "Dinah", "For You", "Tippin In", "In The Land Of Hi Fi", "Got A Date With An Angel", "Laura", "Blue Lou", "Prisoner's Song", and "Sunday Kind Of Love".

✨✧ Stan GetzStan Getz & The Lighthouse All Stars Live ... CD
Giant Steps (UK), 1953/1955. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A stunning roster of players made up the house band at Hermosa Beach, CA's legendary Lighthouse Cafe – an outfit accompanied on these early-to-mid 50s dates by tenor sax giant Stan Getz – with work that's as much an aural snapshot of the sound of place and time as it is a piece of the players' pedigrees! The 2CDs in this set is made up of work captured on a few dates in 1953 and 1955 – some of it laidback and charming, and some of it with more than a little bit of heat and heaviness – with lots of players that include Russ Freeman on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, Jimmy Guiffre on baritone, Teddy Charles on vibes, Howard Rumsey on bass, Shorty Rogers and Maynard Ferguson on trumpets, Milt Bernhart on trombone, and others! Disc 1 titles include "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Jive At Five", "Moonlight In Vermont", Topsy", "Bernie's Tune", "Solitaire" and more. Disc 2 includes "Morgan Davis", "La Soncailli", "The Big Top", "The Duke You Say!", "Mood For Lighthouse", "Casa De Luz" and more. CD

✨✧ Stan KentonKenton In Hi-Fi ... CD
Capitol, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
Easily the most successful album that Stan Kenton ever recorded – a brilliant reworking of older Kenton band standards, done with the dynamics of the 50s hi fi scene! The album's a much-needed one to any fan of Stan's genius – as the tunes are presented here in recordings that really sparkle a lot more than their original 40s readings – recordings that not only benefit from the better fidelity of the time, but also from Kenton's finer-tuning on the arrangements, in a way that pushes his original vision even more strongly than before. Players include Lennie Niehaus, Maynard Ferguson, Pete Candoli, Jack Nimitz, Vido Musso, and Bill Perkins – and titles include "Artistry Jumps", "Interlude", "Minor Riff", "Painted Rhythm", "Southern Scandal", and "Eager Beaver".

✨✧ Shorty RogersSweetheart Of Sigmund Freud ... CD
Giant Steps/Global Warming (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A massive overview of the early years of the career of trumpeter Shorty Rogers – a 2CD set that brings together performances by Shorty in other groups (Woody Herman, Red Norvo, Stan Kenton, Lighthouse All Stars), plus some of Rogers' seminal early 50s sides as a leader! The package is a great way to look at Shorty in these "bubbling under" years – the time when he was making bold strides as a soloist in other artists' groups, then first forging the Giants sound that became one of the most popular in 50s jazz. Titles include "Bop" by Red Norvo, "Igor" and "Lemon Drop" with Woody Herman, "Short Wave" with Maynard Ferguson, "Jolly Rogers" and "Viva Prado" with Stan Kenton, "Punkin" with Louis Bellson, "What's New" with Lighthouse All Stars, and "Chino", "Coop De Graas", "Morpo", "Diablo's Dance", "Pesky Serpent", "Indian Club", "Powder Puff", "Didi", and "Four Mothers" all issued under Shorty's name.
