  • Williams Joe - Basie & Beyond 1955-1957 (CD)

    13,00

    Here are 22 tracks illustrating Joe Williams’ transition from Count Basie’s greatest singer to a solo star in the jazz world. The set begins with 10 tracks from his tenure with Basie recorded between 1955 and 1957. The second half of this set features his debut LP released in 1957 ’A Man Ain’t Supposed to Cry’ which is featured in its entirety from tracks 11-22.

    This is a wonderful mix of rocking blues and sophisticated ballads from a performer of immense importance who after leaving his tenure with the Basie band in 1961 went on to record scores of excellent albums.

    Sit back and listen as Joe Williams wraps his rich baritone voice around these superb tracks.

    Fully detailed liner notes.

  • Clark Sonny - Cool Struttin´(180 gram) (LP)

    27,00

    Conrad Yeatis Clark, otherwise known as Sonny Clark, was in many ways the quintessential hard bop pianist. Possessed of an enviable lyrical flow and a wealth of inventive melodic ideas that unfurled with clarity and without fuss, Clark had a deeply rooted feeling for the blues.

    After moving from his hometown of Pittsburgh to New York, Clark emerged as a ubiquitous presence on Blue Note starting in 1957. It was on his fifth Blue Note date as a leader that Clark arrived at his masterwork, Cool Struttin’, recorded in January 1958 with a top-shelf quintet featuring Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto saxophone, Paul Chambers on bass, and ‘Philly’ Joe Jones on drums. The album has only grown in stature as a timeless hard bop classic since Clark’s premature death at age 31 in 1963.

    This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.

  • Smith Jimmy - Back At The Chicken Shack (180 gram) (LP)

    27,00

    Jimmy Smith was a self-taught pianist who abandoned the instrument in 1954 in favour of the Hammond B3 organ, renting a Philadelphia warehouse and woodshedding for a year until he emerged with a revolutionary style that immediately caught the ear of Alfred Lion. The Blue Note boss dubbed him The Incredible Jimmy Smith and recorded the B3 innovator as frequently as he could between 1956 and 1963.

    It’s a testament to Smith’s volcanic creativity that he recorded not one but two soul jazz classics — Midnight Special and Back at the Chicken Shack — when he entered Rudy Van Gelder’s studio on April 25, 1960 with Stanley Turrentine on tenor saxophone, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Donald Bailey on drums.

  • Davis Miles - Ascenseur Pour L’Echafaud (180 gram, Coloured) (LP)

    20,00

    It was recorded at Le Poste Parisien Studio in Paris on December 4 and 5, 1957. The album features the musical cues for the 1958 Louis Malle film Ascenseur pour l’Échafaud.

    Jean-Paul Rappeneau, a jazz fan and Malle’s assistant at the time, suggested asking Miles Davis to create the film’s soundtrack – possibly inspired by the Modern Jazz Quartet’s recording for Roger Vadim’s Sait-on jamais (Does One Ever Know), released a few months earlier in 1957.

    Davis was booked to perform at the Club Saint-Germain in Paris for November 1957. Rappeneau introduced him to Malle, and Davis agreed to record the music after attending a private screening. On December 4, he brought his four sidemen to the recording studio without having had them prepare anything. Davis only gave the musicians a few rudimentary harmonic sequences he had assembled in his hotel room, and, once the plot was explained, the band improvised without any precomposed theme, while edited loops of the musically relevant film sequences were projected in the background.

    The soundtrack was not released on its own in the USA but ten songs from this soundtrack were released as one side of the album Jazz Track which received a 1960 Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Performance, Solo or Small Group.

    This soundtrack might also be referred to as ”Elevator to the Gallows (French: Ascenseur pour l’échafaud; previously known as Frantic in the US), also known as Lift to the Scaffold (UK)”.

    13,00

    28 tracks of music mostly from the world of jazz and r&b to take your clothes off to.

    8 of these titles come from a famous 1950s LP called ’How To Strip for Your Husband’ and most of the other tracks and artists come from the world of jazz and r&b.

  • Dors Diana - Swinging Dors – Expanded Edition (CD)

    13,00

    Blonde Bombshell DIANA DORS is one of a handful of big-name, bill-topping ’Hollywood Golden Era’ actresses who were greatly underrated as singers, and as a result made very few records.

    Consequently her recorded legacy is minimal, running to little more than the sides gathered together on this set.

    This compilation is built around her highly-regarded LP ’Swinging Dors’, recorded for Pye Records in 1960, which has become a collectors’ item over the ensuing years.

    Also included is another serious collectors’ rarity, an earlier 78rpm single, ’I Feel So Mmm……’ / ’A Kiss And A Cuddle’, from 1953, alongside a track from a 1955 musical comedy, and five live performances from 1950s U.S. television shows.

    A special ’bonus track’ features the soundbed to a short 1956 television interview with Bob Hope, on American TV.

    This is a wholly unique compilation as this body of work has never been thus collated before, while the live TV performances have never previously appeared on CD.

  • Martin Dean - That’s Amore Baby! – The Great Hit Sounds Of… (2CD) (CD)

    15,00

    Like the other legendary members of ’The Rat Pack’, the eternally cool Dean Martin really needs no introduction but in case you didn’t know… Dean Martin was a major star of records, stage, screen, radio, television and night clubs as a singer, comedian, dramatic actor. How’s that for a start?

    Here we have some of his very best recording sessions of the ’50s and early ’60s including the major hits: ’That’s Amore’, ’Memories Are Made of This’, ’Standing on the Corner’, ’Innamorata’, ’Young and Foolish’, and ’Return to Me’.

    Along with the hits there are also many of the most popular songs of the ’50s. However one the greatest features of this set has to be the inclusion of the full length album ’This Time I’m Swingin’!’ recorded with the gifted Nelson Riddle and in glorious stereo!

  • Martin Dean - Joins Reprise (CD)

    13,00

    When Frank Sinatra launched the Reprise label in 1961, his friends and cronies gradually signed for the label; DEAN MARTIN was a case in point, joining their roster in early 1962, upon the expiry of his Capitol contract.

    This compilation features his first two Reprise LPs, ’Dean Martin – French Style’ and ’Dino Latino’, the latter being a collection of largely Spanish favourites; both albums would be successfully reissued after Dino hit big with ’Everybody Loves Somebody’, a couple of years hence.

    Also included, as bonus tracks, are Dino’s first few Reprise singles, ’Tik-A-Tee, Tik-A-Tay’, ’Just Close Your Eyes’, ’From The Bottom Of My Heart (Dammi, Dammi, Dammi)’, ’Who’s Got The Action?’, and ’Sam’s Song’ , the latter a duet with Sammy Davis Jr.

    This is the first time this body of work has been thus compiled, while the bonus tracks are notoriously difficult to find elsewhere on CD.

  • Kessell Barney - Live at the jazz mill 1954

    22,00

    Barney Kessel Live At The Jazz Mill 1954 (Vinyl LP) A fantastic addition to the Barney Kessel catalog of the 50s – a never-heard live set that has the guitarist in form that’s every bit as strong as his famous albums for Contemporary Records! In fact, the strength of the recording may well capture Kessel at a level that beats those sessions – as Barney’s playing live, with a bit more bite – and really grabs us with the strong tone on his solos – and the sense of energy he gets in a quartet that also includes a young Pete Jolly on piano! The recording quality is excellent – crystal-clear, and very focused – and the set isn’t one of those lost tapes that should have stayed ”lost” – but instead a real lost chapter in Barney’s tremendous career. Titles include ”Seven Come Eleven”, ”How About You”, ”Somebody Loves Me”, ”Embraceable You”, ”Get Happy”, and ”Stardust”. © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

  • Ellington Duke, Mingus Charles & Roach Max - Money Jungle + 3 bonus tracks (LP)

    18,00

    The music is superb and to my ear sounds quite “out there” and surprisingly modern. Great playing by all three musicians. The vinyl is excellent – flat and quiet and the music sounds real which is the whole point I suppose. Piano always sounds a little odd in old recordings (I’m not sure why but I’ve been told that recording piano well is very hard ) – and it does sound a little “strained” in places but given the age of the recording it is pretty excellent. Superb. A good investment.
