Rising

LP (Item 12750) Dharma, 1976 — Condition: Very Good+

Free funky fusion, with a bit of the hard edge that European groups were using at the time, but played by an obscure group from Chicago, and with Chico Freeman guesting on reeds. There's some nice funky drumming in here by Andy Potter, with chunky breaks that you'd expect to find on a fusion record like this. Tracks include "Bridges", "Moon In The Water", "Visualization", and "Comocossic".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Bob James

One
CTI, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
A landmark album – not only for Bob James, but for CTI and the Fender Rhodes as well! This is the album where all the magic starts – the first of many extremely successful albums that Bob recorded during the 70s under his own name, and almost the birthplace of the modern hip hop ...

Johnny Hammond

Wild Horses Rock Steady
Kudu, 1971. Very Good+
Excellent Kudu work from one of the greatest organists of the 70s – a player who really stretched out and opened up his groove during the decade! Johnny Hammond was also known as Johnny Hammond Smith back in the 60s – but by the time of his legendary run at Kudu/CTI, he'd hit a much ... LP, Vinyl record album

Houston Person

Pure Pleasure
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+
Slicker than usual for Houston Person, but still a pretty nice album of tighly produced R&B-oriented jazz. The group includes a lot of hip players, like Cecil Bridgewater, Paul Griffin, and Bruce Nazarian – and the record has arrangements by Jimmy Roach. Tracks are long, and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob James

Two
CTI, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that's a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in a groove that's never too slick or too overproduced – ...

Pierre Courbois/Association

Earwax
Munich (Netherlands), 1970. Very Good+
Funky fusion recording from 1970, featuring drummer Pierre Courbois, guitarist Toto Blanke, bassist Sigi Busch, and keyboardist Jasper Van't Hoff. The sound is nice and spare at times, with sort of a freewheeling post-Bitches Brew feel to it, and none of the overdone bam-bam-bam moments that mar ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Klemmer

All The Children Cried
Cadet, 1969. Very Good
Fairly free-blowing set of tracks by the young Klemmer, with lots of pyrotechnics on the reeds, and even a bit of playing on the "echo-plex", which is a cool electronic processing thingy that makes Klemmer's already-great reed style sound even more spacious! He's joined here by a firey ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grover Washington Jr

Mister Magic
Kudu, 1974. Very Good
Pure dark magic from Grover Washington – a record that was a megahit back in the 70s, but which still sounds amazing many decades later! There's a sound here that's completely sublime – and the album is to Grover's career what the first 2 CTI sets by Bob James were to his – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Morton Subotnick

Wild Bull
Nonesuch, 1968. Very Good+
A landmark early recording from Morton Subotnick – and a piece of music that really pushed analogue electronics forward from the previous academic generation! Subtonick's style here is much more freewheeling – with almost an improvisational feel at times – sounds and noises that ... LP, Vinyl record album

DJ Rogers

On The Road Again
RCA, 1976. Sealed
Classic work from the great DJ Rogers – with a soaring, sweeping, righteous soul feel that reminds us of Rance Allen at his best, or of some of the smooth work of Lamont Dozier from the same time. DJ wrote, arranged, and produced all the tracks on this album, and the cuts have a slight nod ... LP, Vinyl record album
