White Hot Stamper

Bud Shank
And the Sax Section

  (Item #: shankandth_1902_7_11_02) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This stellar copy of Bud Shank's 1966 release boasts Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on both sides - open, lively and dynamic throughout
  • Full, rich, and spacious with tons of Tubey Magic and, better yet, never dry, hard or transistory -- true DEMO DISC QUALITY sound
  • An absolutely amazing recording engineered by none other than Bruce Botnick - the sound of multiple saxes playing these lively arrangements is music to our ears
  • "... the album works, largely because of Bob Florence's arrangements and the shrewd doubling of the baritone and bass sax parts, which give the charts heft at the bottom... The overall sound remains wonderfully reedy and flighty."

Bud Shank
Brazilliance Vol. 2

  (Item #: shankbrazi_1903_9_01) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Shank's 1962 collaboration with Laurindo Almeida arrives with a Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) side one and an outstanding Double Plus (A++) side two - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Another superb Rickard Bock production from the early '60s, with huge amounts of studio space and Tubey Magic to die for
  • The combination of Shank's sax and flute with Almeida's Brazilan folk-influenced guitar creates a delightful and unique fusion of bossa nova-influenced jazz
  • These two would go on to form the L.A. 4, but we much prefer their earlier work on this album
  • 4 stars: "...once again combining Brazilian rhythms and folk melodies with cool bop improvising... highly recommended."

Art Pepper + Eleven
Modern Jazz Classics

  (Item #: peppemoder_2001) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This Must Own Art Pepper release earned outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades for sound - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Rich, warm and full-bodied, the brass is phenomenal on this pressing - here is the Tubey Magic of the originals without the problems that cause many originals to be opaque and uninvolving
  • If you buy only one Large Group Hot Stamper jazz record from us, make it this one - the music is swingin' fun and the sound is truly impressive, especially if all you know is the too modern OJC or the godawful Heavy Vinyl Analogue Productions reissue
  • A personal favorite - 5 stars: "This is a true classic. Essential music for all serious jazz collections."

Benny Carter
Further Definitions

  (Item #: cartefurth_1910_12) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • KILLER sound throughout for this original Impulse stereo pressing with each side earning Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) grades - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • These sides are clean, clear, spacious and natural, yet overflowing with the rich, Tubey Magical sound of vintage ANALOG
  • There's not a chance in the world the current 180 gram reissue can hold a candle to this early stereo pressing
  • 5 stars: "The all-star group (which also includes Hawkins, altoist Phil Woods, Charlie Rouse on second tenor, pianist Dick Katz, guitarist John Collins, bassist Jimmy Garrison, and drummer Jo Jones) performs a particularly inspired repertoire. Carter's charts, which allow Hawkins to stretch out on "Body and Soul," give everyone a chance to shine. ...Very highly recommended."

Astrud Gilberto
The Astrud Gilberto Album

  (Item #: gilbeastru_1912ex) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With seriously good Double Plus (A++) sides or close to them, this Van Gelder mastered copy was one of the best we played in our shootout (but the vinyl is iffy at best)
  • The sound here has real texture to the strings and breath to the vocals, key elements if this music is going to work
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The Astrud Gilberto Album was at least as good as Getz/Gilberto (despite what jazz fans say), for several reasons. Gilberto sounded beautiful on a range of material, from the sentimental "Dindi" to the playful "Agua de Beber," and as long as intelligent musicians were playing to her strengths (as they do here), the results were splendid."

  • Rich, warm and full-bodied, the brass is phenomenal on this pressing - here is the Tubey Magic of the originals without the problems that cause many originals to be opaque and uninvolving

Shorty Rogers
The Swingin' Nutcracker

  (Item #: rogerswing_1905_8_12) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Superb sound throughout with both sides earning solid Double Plus (A++) grades and playing about as quietly as any Living Stereo record from 1960 ever will
  • Al Schmitt handled the engineering duties, brilliantly, with Shorty and dozens of his West Coast Pals contributing to the dates, the likes of Conte Candoli, Art Pepper, Bill Perkins, Bud Shank, Harold Land, Richie Kamuca and more
  • "The most remarkable aspect about the score is how boldly it re-imagines the original. The Swingin' Nutcracker is contemporary from an American perspective without patronizing the European original." - Marc Meyers, Jazz Wax

  • "... the cool-toned singer is the main star. Highlights include a definitive "I Want to Be Happy," "Imagination," "When Sunny Gets Blue," and "It's Always You." All of June Christy's Capitol dates are well worth picking up."
