Pres & Teddy & Oscar

LP (Item 13077) Verve, 1952/1956 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold

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".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a small rip on the bottom right corner, a small sticker, a name in marker, and light wear.)

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.

Lester Swings
Verve, 1945/1950/1951. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Lester Young definitely swings here – on material from a number of different Verve albums of the early 50s – with work from Nat King Cole on piano and Buddy Rich on drums on one session – plus more work from either Hank Jones or John Lewis on piano, and Buddy Rich and Jo Jones on ...

Verve, 1952. Near Mint-
Lester Young joins the Oscar Peterson trio – and the result is a classic meeting of the minds from early 50s Verve!

Pres (Charlie Parker)
Charlie Parker, Early 50s. Near Mint-
No real date or personnel on this one, and the album's a live set recorded, most likely, at some time in the 50s. The quality of the recording isn't great, and you hear a heck of a lot of crowd noise – but the work's an interesting document of Pres during the period, as the tunes are all ...

Verve, Late 50s. Very Good+
Quite an obscure one from this famous drummer – with a cool group that also features Willie Smith on alto sax, Juan Tizol on trombone, Buddy Collette on flute and tenor, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Harry Edison on trumpet! Many tracks are evocative originals by Bellson, too – and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1959. Near Mint-
Beautifully laidback blowing from the great Ben Webster – captured here in perfect late 50s formation, with wonderful rhythm support from the Oscar Peterson Trio! The tunes aren't super-long, but still have a relatively open feel – possibly improvised in the studio, with a mellow but ... LP, Vinyl record album
