Art Tatum-Roy Eldridge-Alvin Stoller-John Simmons Quartet

LP (Item 12330) Clef, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good

Classic Norman Granz swing session, with Roy Eldridge on flugelhorn, Alvin Stoller on drums, and John Simmons on bass. Tatum's up front, with some good laidback solos. The LP has a number of short cuts "Night and Day", "This Can't Be Love", "I Won't Dance", and "Moon Song". Nice David Stone Martin cover too!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Clef pressing with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has some surface wear and some faded marker on front.)

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.

A gimmicky cover, a gimmick title, but one heck of a soulful set of jazz!
