Dances – Paris 1969

LP (Item 11228) Birth, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

One of Gunter Hampel's better records, and one that features him playing solo on vibes, flute, piano, and bass clarinet. The bass clarinet stuff is especially good, and gets very noisy at times, with lots of repeated phrasing. The LP's broken up into "dances" for the different instruments, with titles like "Dance For Piano No 5", "Dance for Vibraphone No 2", and so on.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original German pressing, with raised ink on the image. Spine has some light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Freddie Hubbard

Liquid Love
Columbia, 1975. Near Mint-
Electric funk from Freddie Hubbard – a great 70s session that has him bringing in a bit more soul to the mix than usual! Things are a bit tighter here than on the CTI sides, but still pretty open and fluid – almost in a Donald Byrd mode with Larry Mizell, given the fuller backings on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard

High Energy
Columbia, 1974. Near Mint-
Sweet electric Freddie Hubbard – a wonderfully laidback session that's filled with space and soul – hardly what you'd expect from the title! The album follows nicely in the style that Hubbard hit at CTI – an openly flowing groove that has Freddie's trumpet on top of long electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Passport

Looking Thru
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint-
A cosmic leap forward for Passport – a record that's even more keyboard-heavy than some of the group's earlier work, and which stretches out in a spacey sound that's very much in keeping with the cover! The keys here are handled by (yet again) another new player in the group – Kristian ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cross Collateral
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint-
The jamming fusion 70s run of Passport continues – this time with a somewhat-cemented lineup that features Wolfgang Schmid on bass and guitar, Kristian Schultze on keyboards, and Curt Cress on drums and electric percussion – all led by the mighty saxophone work of Klaus Doldinger!

Turn It On
Prestige, 1971. Near Mint-
Stitt's in the funky Prestige sound of the early 70s – complete with Idris Muhammad on drums, organ by Leon Spencer, guitar by Melvin Sparks, and trumpet by Virgil Jones. After years of noodling around on the Varitone, never quite hitting his right moment, Stitt breaks out nicely in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

An album so heavy, it blew plenty of minds when first released at the end of the 60s!

Tito Puente

On Broadway
Picante, 1982. Near Mint-
Not really a "Broadway" album, as you might guess from the title – although Tito and group do play a version of the soul hit "On Broadway" on the set – but a nicely-honed set with a strong Latin jazz groove, much more back to basics than some of Tito's work from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Scott

Lonely Man
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+
An excellent album of uptown soul from Freddie – recorded after his work for Colpix, with arrangements by Belford Hendricks and Garry Sherman, in a sweet 60s New York mode!
