Condition: Vinyl VG+ (clean, a few light scratches), Jacket VG- (general wear, discoloration from age, seams repaired with clear tape)

From the All Music Guide:
The George Shearing Quintet's valuable early recordings for MGM have never been reissued complete and in chronological order so several of his long-out-of-print LPs are worth searching for, this one among them. This LP covers a three-year period when Shearing's group gradually became one of the most popular in the country. Among the highpoints of the enjoyable set are "Mambo Inn," "The Continental," "Jumpin' with Symphony Sid," "Roses of Picardy" and "I'll Remember April."

The tracks are:
1. Mambo Inn
2. To A Wild Rose
3. The Continental
4. Jumpin' With Symphony Sid
5. Roses of Picardy
6. Body and Soul
7. Little White Lies
8. I'll Remember April
9. The Breeze and I
10. Swedish Pastry
11. In a Chinese Garden Part One
12. In a Chinese Garden Part Two

PLEASE NOTE: Unless otherwise noted, all of the LPs we are offering are used. Our grading system for each LP is strictly visual, as we don't have time to listen to each record from beginning to end. Unless otherwise stated, there is usually a small price sticker affixed somewhere on the back cover.

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
