Picked these up from a small local record store here in SF. Mostly sealed between $3-10. Supposedly from Orrin Keepnews' estate.

Nice score.  :tup

I hit another Toronto record store yesterday -- Playa de Record on Spadina.  Picked up these LPs:

Cy Touff – His Octet & Quintet

R-12554562-1572702127-4807.jpg

I cleared out a lot of records today; over thirty. Short sharp and brutal. My four year old son had tears in his eyes thinking that I might sell Jump Up Calypso by Harry Belafonte, but I took pity.

Then I took myself to Alan's on the Finchley Road, and bought myself this as a consolation prize. I've been going through a Kamuca phase for a while and this is the first time I've seen a record of his in the wild other than the Shelly Manne live set.

I came very close to buying this the last time someone brought this up and I found it darn hard to find. It's also very short (~28 minutes). Never on CD that I'm aware. Take a listen to it here and see if you think it's worth paying the current asking prices for it:

Nice ones. Are you still in Canada?

Yes. 

There are many record stores in Toronto. ... It's dangerous.  ;)

Rab,

If you're on a Richie Kamuca kick, you might want keep an eye out for this LP:

Mi5qcGVn.jpeg

The Richie Kamuca Quartet - Richie (Concord, 1977)
with Mundell Lowe (g), Monty Budwig (b), and Nick Ceroli (d)

The Concord LP is actually a reissue.  Originally, it was issued on the tiny, L.A.-based Jazzz label as Richard Kamuca: 1976.

Like a slug of good whiskey, it goes down smooth and makes you feel warm.

I know that one, and am definitely on the lookout for it. Kamuca records (other than the Shelly Manne set) are hard to find.

Well I have it a long time ago.

Can also recommend this one (on CD only)

Already owned the Mulligan but sent that one back cause it was heavily damaged. Found a good copy. This is some of my favorite West Coast stuff on record.

Yesterday, I picked up a few things from the newly-reopened Bull Moose Music in Portsmouth, NH.

LPs

Paul Desmond - Summertime (A&M/CTI)

Paul Desmond - Bridge Over Troubled Water (A&M). Bought this on an All Music Guide recommendation. It's good - not great - and I only thought one track was "eh" ("America").

Duke Ellington - Meets Coleman Hawkins (Impulse!/Analogue Productions). This is the recent reissue.

CDs

Al Cohn/Zoot Sims - From A To Z - And Beyond (RCA)

Stan Getz - The Song Is You (Laserlight Digital). This one was bought after the discussions here. It is pretty good stuff.

:) I got the other five releases from the 80th birthday celebration at TUM but am still resisting here... and I do have to say that the first box I got, the one with Laswell and Graves, is still my favorite by far, followed by the Chicago Symphonies... the remainder is also fine, but it's a lot of cds even without the string quartet box
