Trio & Duet

LP (Item 11290) Sackville, Mid 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Really creative work from Anthony Braxton – a 70s gem that has the reedman working in two different settings – both of them great! The first half of the record reunites Braxton with the electronics of Richard Teitelbaum – working here on some very cool moog, mixed with percussion – all in the best dark sounds of the Time Zones recording from the pair. Leo Smith is also in the group on trumpet – adding in a sense of space that's really wonderful – and Braxton himself works a variety of clarinets with really rich sounds – as the trio takes off on "Composition 36". The rest of the record shows that great old school side of Braxton – that crucial knowledge of the American jazz songbook that he only showed the world this strongly in the mid 70s – and which sparkles here as one of the best examples of that love! The remaining tracks feature Anthony on alto and Dave Holland on bass – working out some really special magic on "The Song Is You", "You Go To My Head", and "Embraceable You".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Coral/Sackville, 1957. Near Mint-
Fabulous is right! Bill's never sounded better – and the album's got a maturity of expression that pushes him way past his Kenton years! The tracks are all larger ensemble ones, arranged and partially written by Bill, and played by the group in a broad chromatic style that's very nice. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+
Eric Kloss' great first jazz outing, recorded back when he was a teenage virtuoso attending the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children.

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- 2 LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power!

Live At The Lighthouse
Prestige, 1972. Very Good
A real killer from Earland! The record swings incredibly hard, with a tight jazzy groove that sounds like his early work for Prestige from the first few albums. The band includes lesser known players like trumpeter Elmer Coles, alto player James Vass, and conga player Kenneth Nash – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dial S For Sonny
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good
Could there be a more classic Blue Note session? From the cover, to the title, to the hardbopping grooves of the set, this Sonny Clark late 50s smoker is one of the label's best! Clark's working here at the height of his powers – leading an all-star group that includes Art Farmer on trumpet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tough!
Cadet, 1957. Very Good+
One of those obscure sessions recorded during the years after the time Blakey and Horace Silver broke up, and before he reestablished himself as a key leader on Blue Note during 1958.

New Boss Guitar Of George Benson
Prestige, 1964. Very Good-
The first album ever cut by George Benson as a leader – a cooker of a soul jazz set, recorded back when George was the guitarist in Jack McDuff's classic 60s quartet! The album's almost a McDuff Quartet one – since Jack's on Hammond and Red Holloway is on tenor – but the group's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Free For All
Blue Note, 1964. Very Good+
Hardly a free for all at all – as the album's a masterpiece of focus and direction, and a classic set from the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers!

Jackson's Action
Prestige, 1964. Very Good
Lots and lots of action here – a stone cooker from tenorist Willis Jackson, who always seems to burn even stronger than usual in concert performance!
