New Music-New Poetry

LP (Item 13366) India Navigation, 1981 — Condition: Near Mint-

This album was recorded live and features Baraka speaking poetry with David Murray and Steve McCall playing tenor sax, bass clarinet and drums in the background. The words and music compliment each other nicely and some of the titles follow in Baraka's usual political vein and they include "The Last Revolutionary (For Abbie Hoffman)", "Against Bourgeois Art", "I Love Music", "Dope", "Class Struggle in Music (Parts 1 & 2)", and "In Thje Tradition (For Black Arthur Blythe)".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Big Nick
India Navigation, 1985. Near Mint-
Big Nick Nicholas is one of these lost tenor stars that you always hear whispers about, but can never find on wax. Years ago, Coltrane honored him with the great composition "Big Nick", but despite that fame, Nicholas had never cut a record as a leader until this obscure session in 1985. ...

Al Cohn

Mr Music
RCA, 1954. Near Mint-
A tight little record – with a strong focus on Al Cohn's solo work! Al's the lead soloist in a number of largish groups that are often tightly arranged, but which let the leader break out nicely – cutting with an edge on his tenor that's sometimes even sharper than usual. Cohn handled ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie Liston Smith

Reflections Of A Golden Dream
Flying Dutchman, 1976. Good+ Gatefold
Lonnie Liston Smith grooves it hard here with his Cosmic Echoes group – mixing in a stronger dose of soul than ever before, yet still giving tracks a righteous feel overall! The approach here is a bit like that of Roy Ayers work from the 70s – still jazzy at its core and conception, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Mingus

Oh Yeah
Atlantic, 1962. Near Mint-
Quite a crazy little record from Charles Mingus! Mingus plays piano and sings (yes, you read that right!) in a tight sextet with Booker Ervin and Roland Kirk on reeds, and Jimmy Knepper on trombone. Mingus is trying out a kind of messed-up, blues-inspired sound here – but for some reason ... LP, Vinyl record album
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
A the time they were taking Paris by storm, the Art Ensemble recorded this brilliant message to folks everywhere – one of their best early albums, and a landmark in Chicago avant garde jazz! The record features the group at their best – playing very tightly, but also with a sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album

My Fair Lady – With The Un-Original Cast
Capitol, 1964. Very Good
Way way more than just a simple "jazz meets Broadway" session – as Shelly's working here with vocals by Jack Sheldon & Irene Kral, and arrangements by soundtrack maestro Johnny Williams – in a style that completely recasts the score! The album's got a really dynamic kind ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ted Curson

Blue Piccolo
Why Not (Japan), 1976. Near Mint-
One of the hippest records ever cut by trumpeter Ted Curson – and that's saying a lot, because all his records are pretty darn hip! Curson's working in a quartet with Jim McNeely on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Steve McCall on drums – and the group's a lot tighter than some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lena Horne & Gabor Szabo

Lena & Gabor
Skye, 1970. Very Good-
Think what you want about Lena Horne – but this is a plenty darn groovy album! Sure, Lena's style is usually a bit classy and uptown – almost so much so that we don't really dig most of her records. But here, she's working in a very groovy style – paired with the great guitarist ... LP, Vinyl record album
