Live At The Lighthouse

LP (Item 1200) Blue Note, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

A great little session by The Three Sounds – and one that features the band grooving away in a style that's a lot more lively than some of their studio recordings from the time! The whole thing was captured live at the legendary Lighthouse – and Gene Harris plays both piano and organ, while the group runs through some lively material that includes "Still I'm Sad", "Blues March", "Makin Bread Again", and "I Held My Head In Shame".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Liberty stereo pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has light wear and the top right corner has moderate moisture staining.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Volume 2 of a pair of LPs that brought together Miles Davis' early recordings for Blue Note – some excellent sessions recorded in 1952, 1953, and 1954, featuring Miles' young trumpet blowing in a wonderful mix of cool, bop, lyrical, and modern jazz. The style's a bit rougher than later years ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Lush Life
Blue Note, 1967. Sealed
An unusual session from the heart of Lou Donaldson's return to Blue Note in the late 60s – a mellower date that stands in strong contrast to his funkier albums of the time! As you might guess from the title, there's a lusher feel going on here – one that has Lou's alto sax augmented by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good+
Bud's second LP for Blue Note – a firey batch of trio tracks that feature George Duvivier on bass and Art Taylor on drums – some of Powell's best work from the time, and a nearly all-classic set of bop piano tracks! The album's nothing fancy on the outset, but Powell and the trio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie McLean

Tippin' The Scales
Blue Note, 1962/1984. Near Mint-
A sweet little quartet from Jackie McLean – a later entry into his bop-level sets for Blue Note, recorded right before his "new thing" years! The album never got a proper release back in the 60s, and only first saw the light of day two decades later – but it's a real cooker ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Midnight Sun
Blue Note, 1960/1980. Very Good+
A killer from Lou Donaldson's early hardbop years at Blue Note – recorded right during his classic run of albums for the label, but not issued until many years later! There's a sweet bounce to most tracks here – the kind of vibe that Lou had most famously on his Blues Walk album – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donald Byrd

Chant
Blue Note, 1961. Near Mint-
A Donald Byrd treasure – and an album that was almost left in the vaults by Blue Note, until they briefly released it at the end of the 70s! The cover and title are a bit unfamiliar, but the music is right up there with Byrd's classic sessions with baritonist Pepper Adams – a great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1975. Very Good-
An essential bit of jazz funk from Donald Byrd and Larry Mizell! The groove's very similar to their classic Places & Spaces LP, and the record's got loads of cool spacey tracks with hot funky trumpet from Donald, and cool waves of synth and sound from Larry. The title cut's a great groover, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

Our Man In Paris
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good-
One of our favorite Dexter Gordon sessions for Blue Note – and a unique album that's one of the first to illustrate his growing role in the European jazz scene! The group's a quartet – which let's Dex stand out front with plenty of space for marvelous tenor work – and it features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Organ Grinder Swing
Verve, 1965. Very Good- Gatefold
No hokey organ grinder here – no monkey on a leash, begging for change on a street corner – just a smoking little trio session that stands as one of the best records that Jimmy Smith ever recorded for Verve! The album's got a groove that's similar to Jimmy's early years at Blue Note ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

Bad Benson
CTI, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold
Pretty mellow stuff from George Benson, but with some nice moments! Don Sebesky handled the arrangements for this set of larger backings – but Benson's guitar is right out front, hitting some super-dope lines at the best moments, stretching out from the warm Fender Rhodes or horn heavy ...
