Charlie Ventura Plays Hi-Fi Jazz
This one can be found for purchase/download online so I won't be posting a sample. But I thought I share the smoking hot cover because, for me, the 13 x 13 inch jacket art is half the fun of collecting records.
Tops printed some unusually dark and interesting jackets in the late 50s. The music (I'm not a jazz buff) seems advanced and solid for the late 50s. I also found a nice copy and can say the engineering is top shelf.
