LP, Vinyl record album

The future is now! Or at least it seemed to be back in 1983 when Herbie teamed up with Bill Laswell to record this classic album of computer-driven keyboard grooves! Whatever you might think of the music, the record was a genius move for Herbie – who was kind of flopping around in a number of different styles on previous albums, most of which we like, but none of which seemed to earn him the same cred as his albums in the 70s. Well this one not only earned him plenty of cred, but also a lot of cash, and continued assurance to Columbia that their contract with Herbie was well-placed – and it certainly cast Bill Laswell into the spotlight as well, given that his efforts really provided the core of the album. Tracks include "Rockit", "Earth Beat", "Future Shock", "Autodrive", and "Rough". (Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia, 1959. Very Good
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz!

Nutcracker Suite
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good
Duke and Billy Strayhorn take on The Nutcracker Suite – getting more than a few nice jazzy changes out of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet! As Jimmy Smith and others have also shown, the Nutcracker's got some pretty nice themes to improvise around – and Ellington's group here is filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album

What Is Jazz?
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good
Hilarious! Always one to try to prove that he wasn't just a stodgy uptowner, Leonard Bernstein cut this album as a "guide to jazz" – featuring narration by Mr. B himself, plus playing by Miles Davis, Buck Clayton, Teo Macero, and Louis Armstrong. The record traces the evolution of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blues
Trip, 1966. Sealed
Trip issue of material from Randy Weston's under-issued years of the mid 60s – just 3 long tracks that are all totally great! Randy's playing with a group that's similar in spirit to that used on the classic African Cookbook – Ray Copeland on trumpet, Frank Haynes on tenor, Bill Wood ... LP, Vinyl record album

Excellent cool jazz work from the postwar explosion on the Swedish jazz scene!

Tracks include "You Can Count On Me", "Party ... LP, Vinyl record album
