Please Sunrise

LP (Item 11398) Brunswick, 1972 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Sweet vibes from the great Lionel Hampton – sounding different here than both his early swing years, and his later small combo modes – and working in a style that has his instrument in the lead over hip Chicago soul backings from the team at Brunswick Records! The album's got a nicely laidback vibe, and a mix of core instrumentation with larger charts that's not unlike some of the cool Cadet Records work by Ramsey Lewis at the end of the 60s – except with vibes, not piano. Willie Henderson and Tom Tom Washington did the arrangements – and nearly every track's an original by Eugene Record. Titles include "Please Sunrise", "Soulful Autumn", "It Must Be Love", "I Did It", and "I Call It Trouble". Tasty stuff, and tight Chicago soul grooves!  © 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.

Great Verve material from Lionel Hampton – and like most of his sides for the label, a set that offers small combo grooving in a very stretched out setting!

A great reason why Lionel Hampton on Verve is so great – especially on small combo dates like this! The set not only has a wonderful cover – with Hamp dressed up like royalty – but also features his vibes in a very open setting – alongside piano from Oscar Peterson, bass ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hamp!
Clef, Mid 50s. Very Good
One of Hamp's jazz sides for Verve, all of which were a lot different than the hard live sets he was still laying down around the world in the 50's. This one's a nice laid-back bit of jazz, with long tracks that let all the players – Hamp, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chisa, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
Wickedly funky work from the Jazz Crusaders – a pivotal set that has them electrifying their groove a bit more from the 60s, yet still not hitting the smother sound of later years! The core soul jazz mode of the group's start is still nicely in place – hard-hitting grooves from Wayne ... LP, Vinyl record album
Taste Of Freedom
MGM, 1970. Very Good
Massively groovy work from Monty Alexander – thanks to some hip, soulful backings from the legendary Johnny Pate! The sound here is a lot more swinging than some of Alexander's trio albums – much more of a Verve-styled session with fuller backings behind a main soloist – in this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beehive, Late 70s. Sealed
A treasure trove of rare jazz recordings – all material that was cut during the short run of the Beehive label – that excellent Chicago imprint that was based along the ideals of recordings first put in place by Blue Note and Prestige!

Brunswick/Be! (Germany), 1957. Sealed (reissue)
Some of the earliest work we've ever heard from German tenorist Joki Freund – a player who'd trip out a bit more in later years, but who blows here with a sound that's sharp, modern, and very swinging throughout! The group features trombone from Albert Mangelsdorff, who's also on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
