Night Of The Cookers Vol 1

LP (Item 14184) Blue Note, 1965 — Condition: Very Good+
A landmark set for Blue Note – one that features Freddie Hubbard working in raw, firey, freewheeling territory – given space that few other players at the label were getting at the time! The two volume set features tracks recorded live at Club La Marchal in Brooklyn – and have Hubbard working with a completely hip group that features Lee Morgan, James Spaulding, Harold Mabern, Larry Ridley, Pete La Roca, and Big Black on conga. Each side of the album features one long track – and this first volume features the tunes "Pensativa" and "Walkin" – done in an extended style that's much rougher and rawer than Hubbard's studio albums of the time!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s black b label pressing, in green-tinted cover. Vinyl is nice, cover has some 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.

Freddie Hubbard

Born To Be Blue
Pablo, 1982. Near Mint-
A beautiful set from Freddie Hubbard – part of his move back to straighter, more long-form jazz at the start of the 80s! The set's still got some keyboards in the mix, but it's also got a soaring, searching, soulful groove that reminds us a lot of Hubbard's best late 60s moments for Atlantic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pablo, 1980. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A great long live set – very extended tracks, blown soulfully by Freddie Hubbard in that excellent return to basics mode he hit at the start of the 80s! The group is a killer quintet – with David Schnitter on tenor and Billy Childs on keyboards. LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard

High Energy
Columbia, 1974. Very Good+
Sweet electric Freddie Hubbard – a wonderfully laidback session that's filled with space and soul – hardly what you'd expect from the title! The album follows nicely in the style that Hubbard hit at CTI – an openly flowing groove that has Freddie's trumpet on top of long electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard

Sing Me A Song Of Songmy
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Freddie Hubbard's wildest records ever – a really unique experiment with electronics, and a set that sounds way different than his other albums for Atlantic, Blue Note, or CTI! The key factor here is experimentalist Ilhan Mimaroglu – who adds lots of electronics and processed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Horace Silver

Silver's Serenade
Blue Note, 1963. Near Mint-
A bit less well-known than some of the real Horace Silver classics on Blue Note – but an incredible record that shows the Silver Quintet at all its lyrical best! The record is a masterpiece of original voicings from Horace – not just in the unique tunes he penned for the set, but also ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Hancock

Maiden Voyage
Blue Note, 1965. Near Mint-
A brilliant album – and real turning point for Herbie Hancock! After first coming onto the scene as the soul jazz hero between Blue Note funky classics like "Watermelon Man" or "Blind Man, Blind Man" – Herbie emerges here as a concerned modernist with a strand of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1961. Very Good
One of the few live recordings ever done by Horace Silver during his Blue Note years – a real surprise, considering what a crowd pleaser he was at the time! The set catches Horace working with that great quintet that graced most of his best early Blue Notes – with Blue Mitchell on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1953. Sealed
Seminal early work from Elmo Hope that was part of Blue Note's "New Faces – New Sounds" series during the early 50s. Hope's working here with Percy Heath and Philly Joe Jones – and the trio go to town on numbers that include complicated bop tunes like "Carving The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie McLean

Consequence
Blue Note, 1965/1979. Near Mint-
A great slice from Jackie McLean's rare unissued 60s sessions for Blue Note – a rollingly soulful session that stands in stark contrast to some of his more modern sides of the time! The set's got Jackie working with a group that includes Lee Morgan on trumpet and Harold Mabern on piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Evans

Alternative Man
Blue Note, 1985. Near Mint-
Saxophonist Bill Evans plays with Manolo Badrena, Hiram Bullock, Clifford Carter, Mark Egan, Mitchel Forman, Al Foster, Jeff Golub, Danny Gottlieb, Chuck Loeb, Sid McGinnis, John McLaughlan, Marcus Miller, and Lew Soloff. LP, Vinyl record album

Joel Ross

Who Are You
Blue Note, 2020. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Beautiful work from vibist Joel Ross – a player who's just starting to blossom as a leader, and who's clearly on the right path! The sound is wonderfully rich – not just vibes from Ross, but especially nice work from bassist Kanoa Mendenhall, who's a really key part of the sound here ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1974. Very Good+
A great collection of work by Lee – mostly from the mid 60s, packaged together here as a Memorial Album issued by Blue Note as part of a long tradition of such albums for jazz labels (more famous examples include those released for Wardell Gray or Clifford Brown by Prestige). Titles include ... LP, Vinyl record album
