Meet Milt Jackson

LP (Item 13364) Savoy, Mid 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Great early material from Milt Jackson – very different than his 50s material with the MJQ, and much more in the spirit of his work for Blue Note! The groups here vary – and in addition to vibes, milt handles a bit of piano, and even sings on one track too – alongside players who include Lucky Thompson and Billy Mitchell on tenor, Bill Massey on trumpet, Frank Morgan on alto, Frank Wess on flute and tenor, and Walter Bishop and Gerry Wiggins on piano! Titles include "Flamingo", "Junior", "Hearing Bells", "Bubu", "Soulful", and "Bluesology"  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Maroon label pressing. Record and cover are great!)

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.

Vibrations
Atlantic, 1964. Very Good+
Excellent work as a leader from vibist Milt Jackson – very different than his Atlantic recordings with the Modern Jazz Quartet!

Jimmy Smith

Cat
Verve, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
A real high point in Jimmy Smith's famous 60s run at Verve Records – a key collaboration with arranger Lalo Schfrin, who brings a great blend of jazz and soundtrack styles to Jimmy's famous groove on the Hammond! Lalo's backings are totally great – with touches of Latin and Brazilian ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

Day In The Life
CTI/A&M, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
Mindblowing! This is when Wes Montgomery really starts to get interesting to us – when he's working with a top-line arranger like Don Sebesky, crafting some incredibly compelling chords over lightly jazzy arrangements and soaring strings, in a whole new mode of expression that would go onto ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones

Smackwater Jack
A&M, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great bit of 70s electric work from Quincy – and probably his funkiest album ever! Quincy's really stepping out here from the straighter and spacier styles of earlier records – going for more of the dirty grooves he was cutting up for soundtrack albums, and hitting notes that were a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Von Freeman

Doin' It Right Now
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint-
A classic "discovery" of tenor saxophonist Von Freeman – one that was already relatively late in his career, but a key appearance on Atlantic under the auspices of Roland Kirk! The setting here is as loose and laidback as Von needs to really do his thing – backing by a trio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Carter

Further Definitions
Impulse, 1961. Near Mint- Gatefold
A key later album from alto saxophonist Benny Carter – one that has him at the helm of a largeish group, but playing with a nicely focused sort of groove! In addition to Benny's alto, the record also features tenor sax from Charlie Rouse and Coleman Hawkins, plus one more alto from Phil ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

I Remember Bird
Catalyst, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
Stitt remembers Bird? How could he ever forget him? Seriously, though, this is a nice set of boppish material that moves past the usual "Bird" tribute. In fact, none of the stuff's by Bird, and most of the track list is a fairly non-traditional list of tracks. However, Stitt is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie McCoy

Lonely Avenue
Prestige, 1965. Very Good-
The first record by vibist Freddie McCoy, and one that's got much more of a straight jazz feel than some of his later Prestige albums. Feddie's vibes are set in a group with a lesser-known group of Prestige players, like Gil Askey on trumpet, Tate Houston on baritone, and James Thomas on organ ... LP, Vinyl record album

Albert Ayler

Witches & Devils
Arista Freedom, 1964/1975. Near Mint-
Classic early material by Albert Ayler, recorded in New York in 1964, but originally issued only in Europe! The session features Ayler with the obscure trumpeter Norman Howard, plus Henry Grimes on bass and Sonny Murray on drums – and has all the crackle and imagination of Ayler's ESP ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!
Capitol, 1966. Near Mint-
If the 60's ever had a "hit" jazz record, it was probably this one! The album's a sparkling live session featuring the trademark soul jazz sounds of the Cannonball Adderley group with Joe Zawinul on acoustic and electric piano, and brother Nat Adderley on cornet. The tracks have a long ... LP, Vinyl record album
