Charlie Parker Story #2

LP (Item 10938) Verve, Early 50s — Condition: Sealed
Volume 2 in Verve's LP collection of Parker's work for the label, with a mix of tracks that includes some straight quartet material, and some recorded with strings from the Midnight Jazz At Carnegie Hall LP. The quartet sides are some of the best, and include "Repetition", "Laird Baird", "Confirmation", and "Now's The Time" – but the strings session also includes a great version of "Repetition".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Simulated stereo pressing – V6-8001 – still sealed with a small corner cut.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Classic bop session work, featuring Bird, Miles, JJ Johnson, Max Roach, Duke Jordan, and Tommy Potter.

Verve, Early 50s. Near Mint-
Charlie Parker takes on the music of Cole Porter – with results that make for some of his most classic moments at Verve!

Portrait Of Duke Ellington
Verve, 1960. Very Good+
A portrait of Duke, done by Dizzy – and one that's got a whole different feel than you might think!
