Wizardry Of Greg Hatza

LP (Item 1247) Coral, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A fantastic little record of 60s organ jazz – despite an unseemly photo of Greg Hatza's pimply face on the cover! Greg's young at this point, but he's really a whiz at the keyboard – and grooves hard in a trio that features a young Eric Gale on guitar, and Grady Tate on drums. The record's got a nice long original groover called "Sputnik", plus titles that include "Charlene", "Summertime", "Charade", and "I'll Remember April", all done in long versions.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Coral, 1955. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great 4-part suite that rivals any of Manny Albam's other sessions from the time – including Jazz Greats Of Our Time, or Jazz New York – and, like that one, a set that's filled with top-shelf jazz talents at the time!

Coral, 1956. Very Good+
A rare and unusual chapter in the career of Al Cohn – and an incredible set cut in the mid 50s with Bob Brookmeyer on trombone!

Heinie Beau

Moviesville Jazz
Coral, Mid 50s. Very Good
An obscure west coast session led by reedman Heinie Beau – a player who mostly recorded with film orchestras of the 50s, but who sounds great here in the company of better-known LA names like Howard Roberts, John Graas, Don Fagerquist, Buddy Collette, and Red Callender! The style here is a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Modern jazz from the Coral Records label – a great collection of sides that really made the imprint sparkle in the 50s!

Miles Davis

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

CTI, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark album – not only for Bob James, but for CTI and the Fender Rhodes as well!

Ramsey Lewis Trio

Upendo Ni Pamoja
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+
Sublime electric work from Ramsey Lewis! Ramsey's working here with his hip 70s group that included Morris Jennings and Cleveland Eaton, and he's playing some fantastic electric piano – a blend of funky grooves and soulful spiritualism, stripped down into a sound that's one of his leanest ...

Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
Unlike the mellower Breeze from the East LP (another Tjader "eastern" session), this one's got some very lively Latiny stuff – despite the orientalist theme of the LP. There's a monster version of Horace Silver's "Tokyo Blues", plus takes of Lalo Schifrin's "The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
Wild electric work from Les McCann – an album of free, open sounds that's quite a change from his styles of the 60s – and from most of his other work of the 70s too!
