June Christy & Stan KentonDuet ... LP
Capitol, 1955. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Haunting stuff – and one of June Christy's darkest albums! June's singing here with her old boss, Stan Kenton, at the piano – no other real backing, just the pair of them working together in a session that's uniquely stripped down for the time. June's vocals are frail and tender – with even more sadness than in some of her more fully arranged sessions, all of which we love to death. Titles include "Come To The Party", "Angel Eyes", "Lonely Woman", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "We Kiss In A Shadow", and "You're Mine You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono turquoise label pressing. Cover is lightly stained at the bottom.)

Stan Kenton7.5 On The Richter Scale ... LP
Creative World, 1973. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Funky stuff from Stan – a very different album than usual! The style here is 70s big band funk – mixing the usual horn-heavy frontline with some electric bass and more of the groove that was showing up with the European big bands at the time – particularly those on the MPS label. The best proof of this is the cuts "2002-Zarathustrarevistied", and "Down and Dirty", both of which are great funky numbers, and the latter of which features a very tasty break on the intro! Other cuts include "Country Cousin", "Live & Let Die", "Blue Gene", and "It's Not Easy Bein Green". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonAdventures In Time ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good- ... $0.99
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's pretty great on tenor. Titles include "Commencement", "Apercu", "Artemis & Apollo", "Septour From Antares", and "Quintile". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonBallad Style Of Stan Kenton ... LP
Capitol, 1958. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of Stan's excellent later sides for Capitol – recorded during a flurry of incredible sessions that really pushed the already-great Kenton sound over the top! Here, Stan's working with a host of familiar ballads – but in a way that completely transforms the tunes, and turns them into sound sculptures crafted on blocks of rich color, tone, and hue. The sound is incredible – with perfectly-poised horn passages that shift in the dark like a musical version of the Northern Lights – all topped off by Stan's piano lines, recorded in a magical way that floats them effortlessly over the rest of the group. Titles include "Early Autumn", "How Am I To Know?", "We'll Be Together Again", "The End Of A Love Affair", "More Than You Know", "A Sunday Kind Of Love", "Moon Song", "How Deep Is The Ocean (How High Is The Sky)", 'The Night We Called It A Day" and "When Stars Looked Down".

Stan KentonCity Of Glass (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
A seminal work in the development of the American jazz avant garde, and one of the most "out" records that Kenton (or Capitol) ever released! The whole album is based around a startling compositions by Robert Graettinger – "City Of Glass" – a chilling longform work in a distinctly modern idiom. The pieces have been cited often in the development of American avant garde jazz, and they represent a postwar crossroads of ideas that incorporates atonal composition and bop-oriented approaches to instrumentation. 4 tracks in all: Part I – Entrance Into The City", "Part II – The Structures", "Part III – Dance Before The Mirror" and "Part IV – Reflections".

Stan KentonCuban Fire ... CD
Capitol, 1956. Used ... $3.99
One of Kenton's greatest records, and the one in which he proves his dedication to Latin styles, by serving up a killer batch of Afro-Cuban tracks with an incredibly authentic feel. The great Johnny Richards handled the arrangements, and the tracks are long and drawn out, with plenty of solo space for the group. Titles include "Fuego Cubano", "Quien Sabe", and "La Quera Baila". Plus, this killer CD reissue also features a whopping 6 bonus cuts that weren't on the original – including "Wagon", "Carnival", and "Malibu Moonlight". CD

Stan KentonKenton In Hi-Fi ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Very Good- ... $0.99
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".

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.

Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
Beautiful work from Kenton – lush string settings that have as much power and imagination as his work with horns, and which come across with some really dark edges. The tunes are awash in color and tone – never sleepy strings, but edgey ones, as in the mode of Ralph Burns' best orchestrations from the early 50s. Titles include "Salute", "Minor Riff", "Painted Rhythm", "Ballade For Drums", and "Elegy For Alto". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonStan Kenton Today/Stan Kenton Recorded Live In London ... CD
Decca/Vocalion (UK), 1972. Used 2 CDs ... $13.99
Hip 70s work from Stan Kenton – 2 albums recorded live in the UK in 1972, both of them in the best modern style he was using at the time! As with some of Kenton's other excellent 70s sessions, the players on the records are lesser-known than on his classic sets – but all are extremely well-suited to the Kenton groove, and are younger players that have a free-thinking approach that makes for some great solo work. Tracks are all relatively long, and have a rhythmic pulse that's really great – not really electric, but clearly informed at times by the use of electric instrumentation in bigger bands at the time. Titles include "Malaga", "Artistry In Percussion", "Chiapas", "Bogota", "Fringe Benefits", "Walk Softly", and "Ambivalence". CD

Capitol, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Contemporary concepts that are as bold today as they were when first released in the mid 50s! Stan's at the height of his powers here – working with the brilliant Bill Holman to craft some incredible versions of tunes that had become jazz standards, tired ones at that – but which explode into new colors and tones in the hands of the Kenton magic! Titles include sublime readings of "What's New", "Stella By Starlight", "Yesterdays", "Cherokee", and "I've Got You Under My Skin" – and the CD features bonus material that includes "Opus In Chartreuse", "Opus In Turquoise", "Opus In Beige", and "Sunset Tower" – most of which were arranged by Gene Roland, and are even more modern than some of the other material.

Ann's a more lustily voiced singer than the sort that usually worked with Stan Kenton during the 50s – with a deep range in her delivery of a song, and a mode of singing that's a bit more unbridled than you'd expect for someone working under Stan. This set's a lot more Ann's album than it is Kenton's – and arrangements, by the likes of Gene Roland, Bill Holman, and Johnny Richards, are all pretty swinging with more room for Ann's voice than horn solos. Titles include "No Moon At All", "The Morning After", "I Was The Last One To Know", "All Or Nothing At All", and "Don't Be That Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol/Jazz Heritage, Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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!

Jean TurnerFrom The Creative World Of Stan Kenton Comes The Exciting New Voice Of Jean Turner ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
A rare Stan Kenton session with a vocalist – one that features the little-known Jean Turner, a really great singer with a mix of soul and jazz that's a lot like Nancy Wilson! Kenton's a bit looser and more swinging here than usual – almost in an Oliver Nelson mode at times to match the style of Jean's vocals on the lively tunes, but sliding into more Kenton-like chromatic hues on the ballads in the set. Arrangements are by Stan, Lennie Niehaus, and Bill Holman – but Jean Turner's the real star of the set, and really captivates us with her confident vocals and wide range of styles! Titles include "Piel Canela", "Sleepy Lagoon", "A Lot Of Livin To Do", "Love Walked In", "You're The Top", and "It's A Big Wide Wonderful World". LP, Vinyl record album

Serge ChaloffBoston Blow-Up! ... LP
Capitol, 1955. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of the few key recordings issued by baritone saxophonist Serge Chaloff before his untimely early death – a tremendous little record that really helped redefine the place of his instrument in jazz! The album is one of a number produced by Stan Kenton for Capitol at the time, but it's far from the cooler jazz outings of other "Kenton Presents" sessions – a real Boston Blow up that has Serge standing starkly out front on the baritone, hitting some tremendous notes that show a command and dexterity on his instrument that few other players could match! Also noteworthy is the presence of the great Boots Mussulli on alto sax – a sharp-edge player with a lot of Charlie Mariano touches, and an artist who's rarely heard in a setting so stripped-down as this. Other artists include Herb Pomeroy on trumpet, Ray Santisi on piano, and Jimmy Zitano on drums – and titles include the original numbers "Kip", "Unison", "Bob The Robin", and "Sergical" – plus versions of "What's New", "Yesterday's Gardenias", and Jaki Byard's "Diane's Melody".

Art FarmerBrass Shout/Aztec Suite ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note, 1959. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An amazing 2-in-1 CD – filled with sublime work from the mighty Art Farmer! First up is Brass Shout – a great little album by this wonderful trumpeter – and one that we passed up for years because we were afraid of the words "brass" and "shout" in the title! If you're a Farmer fan, though, don't worry about this being some sort of snoozy "bold n brassy" session – because it's a much more subtle record, and features some excellent lead solos by Farmer, set amidst a larger group arranged wonderfully by Benny Golson! Golson brings a great sense of balance to the album – mixing some larger horn passages with soulfully snapping rhythms, all at a level that still allows plenty of space for Farmer to solo sweetly on trumpet. Other players on the record include Lee Morgan on trumpet and Curtis Fuller on trombone, Percy Heath on bass, and either Philly Joe Jones or Elvin Jones on drums – and titles include "Minor Vamp", "Nica's Dream", "Stella By Starlight", "Moanin", "April In Paris", and "Five Spot After Dark". Aztec Suite is a rare Latin outing from trumpeter Art Farmer – one that has him working with the mighty Cuban arranger Chico O'Farrill! The grooves here are hardly "Aztec", as Chico brings a hip postwar vibe to the session – a blend of American jazz and Latin rhythms that's totally great, and played by an all-star array of players conducted by Al Cohn! Side one of the record features the extended "Aztec Suite" – an ambitious number that begins with modern moments that are somewhere in a space between Stan Kenton and Ralph Burns' experiments of this nature, but which always has Farmer's trumpet as the center focus. Side two features tracks that are a bit more conventional Latin jazz – still played by the bigger group, but with an even stronger sense of swing! Titles include "Aztec Suite", "Heat Wave", "Drume Negrita", "Alone Together", "Woody N You", and "Delirio". CD

A double-length set from this famous Japanese group – one that features a range of 60s recordings from the ensemble, all of which show why they were easily one of the best big bands working in the East! There's a charm here that's halfway between Stan Kenton and Count Basie – the sense of tone and timing of the former, and the loping soulful energy of the latter – tied together beautifully in ways that echo older American jazz traditions, but still sparkle with the most contemporary elements of their 60s recording dates. The set features 18 numbers in all – and titles include "Tumblin Tambourine", "Satin Doll", "Goodbye", "Moon River", "Blue Flame", "My Funny Valentine", and "In The Mood". CD

Fantasy, 1955. Sealed ... $7.99
A pretty hip set of big band arrangements – very much along the lines of early 50s Stan Kenton, with a tight swing, but a nicely modern undercurrent as well! The arrangements, as the title indicates, are all by Gerry Mulligan – and in addition to the piano of Elliot Lawrence, players include Al Cohn and Hal McKusick on saxes, Nick Travis on trumpet, Eddie Bert and Paul Sheldon on trombones, Buddy Saunders on bass, and Don Lamond on drums – all players with a great ear for mixing up tightness on the heads, and a more laidback groove during the solo moments. Tracks are short and angularly arranged – and titles include "But Not For Me", "Happy Hooligan", "My Silent Love", "Mullenium", and "Bweebida Bwobbida". LP, Vinyl record album

Bill RussoWorld Of Alcina ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the most ambitious recordings ever from Bill Russo – the composer/arranger who first rose to fame with Stan Kenton, and who's working here in an even more modern extension of Kentonite ideals! Side one of the record features Russo's beautiful composition "The World Of Alcina" – a tune originally written as a jazz ballet, but which comes across here with the fluid tones and deep colors of some of the more serious jazz soundtracks from the time. The 18 minute piece features some especially great work on horns – played by a large brace of brass instruments used with the careful, sensitive styles that clearly show an influence from Kenton. Side two features shorter tunes – most composed by Russo too, and played in ways that resonate more strongly with west coast small combo work of the time. There's a nice sense of counterpoint on most numbers, and a few tunes feature great interplay between Russo's valve trombone, Bill Porter's slide trombone, and the twin tenors of Sandy Mosse and Bill Trujillo – while others have a more open soloing style, with just Russo and Trujillo as the main horns. Rhythm is by Eddie Baker on piano, Israel Crosby on bass, and Mickey Simonetta on drums – and tracks include "For My Sister", "Under The Greenwood Tree", "L'Affair Bugs", "Bill's Blues", and "Speculum".

London, 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer soundtrack from jazzy Johnny Keating – a set that we'd rank right up there with his other non-film work of the 60s! The score's got a bold, edgey sort of quality – one that shows a real maturation in Keating's music since the earlier part of the decade – but still that great sense of rhythm and repetition that first made him stand out so strongly. The horns are especially great – bold and brassy one minute, then laidback and compressed the next – filled with great colors and tones that show a link back to Stan Kenton sounds of the 50s, turned towards much groovier ends for Johnny's 60s generation. All tracks are originals, and the titles include the lead vocal "Born To Lose", sung by Jackie Lee – plus "Kate's Theme", "Gang's Arrest", "Accident", "Diamond Robbery", "Breaking Into The Mail Van", and "Passing The Mail Bags".

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

✨✧ Duke EllingtonIndigos ... LP

One of Duke Ellington's best albums of the 50s – a well-conceived session of dark moody tracks that revisits a few old favorites, hits a few standards, and offers a new gem that's right up there with the classics! The "indigos" title is taken very seriously here – as the album's awash in blue tones and darker hues – a bit Kenton in inspiration, but carried off with a lot more intimacy and sense of soul throughout. The group by this point is completely mature – and old bandmates like Johnny Hodges on alto, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Jimmy Hamilton on clarinet, Cat Anderson and Ray Nance on trumpets, and Jimmy Woode on bass all fit together perfectly under Ellington's direction. Titles include Duke's great "The Sky Fell Down", plus "Mood Indigo", "Autumn Leaves", "Tenderly", "Dancing In The Dark", "Where Or When", and "Solitude". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo 6 eye pressing with deep groove.)
