About this copy: This copy of Let’s Get Acquainted With Jazz …For People Who Hate Jazz! is a 1958 U.S. pressing on the Tampa label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.
The loose bag wrap is fully intact except for a small 1′ (2.5 cm) split at the top right corner. The cover is M-.
A beautiful copy of a highly regarded Jazz LP and a hard album to find in stereo.
Background: Released in 1958 on the small California-based Tampa label, Let’s Get Acquainted With Jazz …For People Who Hate Jazz! was the third album by pianist Jimmy Rowles.
The drawing on the cover and the liner notes, such as they are, are rather silly, but the music on this brief, but enjoyable, (album) features some fine playing from a variety of top West Coast-based musicians. Pianist Jimmy Rowles is the leader and is assisted by guitarist Barney Kessel, bassist Red Mitchell, drummer Mel Lewis, sometimes vibraphonist Larry Bunker and tenor saxophonist Harold Land, or trumpeter Pete Candoli. They perform six standards, three takes on “The Blues” and three originals by Rowles. It’s a program of tasteful and lightly swinging mainstream jazz.
