Pres & Teddy & Oscar

LP (Item 13077) Verve, 1952/1956 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔
A pairing of 2 mid-50s sides by Lester Young for Verve – one album recorded with Teddy Wilson on piano, the other with Oscar Peterson – hence the title! The Wilson session was recorded in 1956, and featuers Gene Ramey on bass and Jo Jones on drums – with tracks that include "Louise", "Pres Returns", "All Of Me", "Prisoner Of Love", and "Love Is Here To Stay". The Peterson session was recorded earlier, in 1952, with Barney Kessel on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and JC Heard on drums – with titles that include "Ad Lib Blues", "Star Dust", "I Can't Give You Anything But Love", "There Will Never Ever Be Another You", "I'm Confessin", and "These Foolish Things".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s issue. A nice copy.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Lester Young

Lester Young Story
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good-
A well-done collection of Lester Young's work for Verve – issued shortly after his death, and offering Prez in a variety of different settings! Most of the work is small combo material, recorded between 1950 and 1956 – all in that open, easygoing Verve style that seemed to work almost ... LP, Vinyl record album
Aladdin/Imperial, Late 40s. Very Good+
Great early work from Lester Young – an Imperial Records collection of early material from the 78rpm days of Aladdin Records! The work is a great bridge between swing and pop – and Lester Young's tone is superb throughout – on titles that include "One O'Clock Jump", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pres (Charlie Parker)
Charlie Parker, Early 50s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Rare live material from Lester Young – one of the first albums to offer up Pres in such a setting, although without some of the details and notes of other records of this nature! The vibe is definitely "live", and like some of the other Charlie Parker label releases, the record's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Swinging Lester Young
Score, Late 40s/1958. Very Good
A late 50s issue of some of Prez's early bop sides – mostly recorded in LA, with groups that include players like Dodo Marmarosa, Red Callender, Willie Smith, Curtis Counce, Howard McGhee, and Chico Hamilton. Tracks include "DB Blues", "Jumpin At Mesner's", "She's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1956. Very Good-
Beautiful small group playing by Lester Young – recorded with 2 different groups: one that includes John Lewis, Gene Ramey, and Jo Jones; the other including Gildo Mahones, Jessie Drakes, Gene Ramey, and Connie Kay. The mellow aspects of the players come out nicely against Young's soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary McFarland

Soft Samba
Verve, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
A dream of a record from Gary McFarland – lightly jazzy instrumentals with a warm bossa nova undercurrent! The style is incredible – a sweet blend of vibes, guitar, and even some light whistling – often also featuring wordless jazz vocals – scatting along with the groove in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Evans

Alone
Verve, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
Solo work by Bill Evans – recorded in 1968, at a time when he was increasingly exploring gentleness in his work! The album's quite haunting – done with no other musicians, no overdubs (as in other solo 60s albums) – just Evans alone at the keys, expressing himself with a somber ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1944. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A nice mid 70s 2LP set – one that features the complete first Jazz At The Philharmonic concert – with performances by Nat King Cole, Illinois Jacquet, Billie Holiday, Les Paul, and JJ Johnson. LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1950s/1960s. Near Mint-
Basie hits the hits of the 50s and early 60s – working here with some tight Billy Byers arrangements that really help transform the tunes!

Scorpio & Other Signs
Verve, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
Great stuff from Gary – one of his more obscure albums, and a record dedicated to the signs of the Zodiac! The tracks are a mixture of Gary's usual easy jazz approach – with vibes, whistling, and bossa-style rhythms showing up a lot – plus a few more driving numbers that are more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A nice, nice compilation of sides cut by Powell for Norman Granz, from 1949 to 1951. Given Powell's well documented bouts with instability and alcoholism, there are several periods that lasted for months and sometimes years when he would go unrecorded. The first dates on this set come at the end ... LP, Vinyl record album
