Nightflight

LP (Item 10750) Mercury, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

Wonderful 70s work from Gabor Szabo – a record that has him picking up a bit more of a soulful undercurrent, while still keeping all his great guitar work nicely upfront! The album has Gabor recording at the legendary Sigma Sound Studios – with help from Philly soul arrangers Richie Rome and Bunny Sigler, who use some elements in the music from their work on Philly club hits – but still really keep enough space for Szabo to serve up some great solos as well! The groove is actually deeper and more inspiring than some of Gabor's work at CTI – with a bit more variety too – and titles include the spacey "Concorde (Night Flight)", plus "Babby Rattle Snake", "Smooth Sailin", "Theme For Gabor", "Every Minute Counts", and "Keep Smilin".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and a small cutout hole.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Very groovy stuff from Quincy – a mix of jazz, soundtrack, and popular themes, all done in that soulful swinging style that Quincy virtually helped invent back in the 60s! The album's got plenty of great groovers that take a popular tune and kind of turn it on its ear – takes on tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gigi Gryce

Reminiscin'
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good+
A great lost date from the wonderful Gigi Gryce – a set that features the altoist in an sextet, but often swinging with a looser vibe than on some of his better-known albums from the 50s! There's a mix of soulful and modern here that's not unlike the Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll Garner

Garnering
Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good+
This set's definitely full of Garnering – that lopingly rhythmic approach to the keys that set Erroll apart from all the rest back in the day – in a mode that almost sounds like he's making things up as he goes along, deciding which course to take at the very last moment. The album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Houston Person

Pure Pleasure
Mercury, 1976. Very Good
Slicker than usual for Houston Person, but still a pretty nice album of tighly produced R&B-oriented jazz. The group includes a lot of hip players, like Cecil Bridgewater, Paul Griffin, and Bruce Nazarian – and the record has arrangements by Jimmy Roach. Tracks are long, and titles ...

Stephane Grappelli

Improvisations
Mercury, 1956. Very Good
Not as freely improvised as you might think – but a nice set from the mid 50s, issued here with bonus unreleased tracks, and one that features Grappelli as the lead soloist in a quartet with Maurice Vander on piano and harpsichord, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Baptiste Reilles on drums. ...

Randy Weston

Little Niles
United Artists, 1958. Sealed
Some of the greatest work ever recorded by Randy Weston! Forget his trio stuff, this is the material that made him an instant legend in the late 50s! The record's a mindblowing batch of original compositions by Randy, arranged by Melba Liston, and featuring players like Ray Copeland, Johnny ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Hamilton

Different Journey
Reprise, 1963. Near Mint-
Different is right – as this obscure early 60s side shows Chico Hamilton really opening up, moving past the modern chamber style of the late 50s, into the freer modal rhythms that characterized his incredible work of the 60s! The group's the beginning of that sound too – with Charles ... LP, Vinyl record album
