Kicker

LP (Item 1547) Milestone, 1967 — Condition: Very Good+

A key link between Joe Henderson's earlier years at Blue Note and his later, freer work for Milestone – recorded in a style that's got plenty of Blue Note hardbop touches, yet also done with a sense of freedom that you'd never expect from that label! Joe's grooving in a straight, yet angular mode – working with a sextet that include Mike Lawrence on trumpet, Grachan Moncur III on trombone, Kenny Barron on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – all in a mix of soulful, exotic, and slight Latin styles – a sound that's clearly influenced by the work of Horace Silver at times, but carried off beautifully by Joe in a bold, young tenor voice. Titles include the classic "Mamacit", plus "Mo Joe", "O Amor Em Paz", "The Kicker", "If", and "Nardis".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Orange/brown label 70s pressing – in great shape!)

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.

Ron Carter w/Herbie Hancock & Tony Williams

Third Plane
Milestone, 1978. Near Mint-
Nice trio side from the rhythm section that fueled Miles' classic quintet. Ron, Herbie & Tony developed an advanced interplay backing Miles, almost telepathic, with just the right amount of space & a great harmonic underpinning, and this is one of the few trio sides they cut. Most of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don't Stop The Carnival
Milestone, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Despite the title, which seems a bit silly, the album's actually one of Sonny's best from the 70s – an open-ended live set, recorded with a group that features both electric and acoustic piano, plus guitar and electric bass in the rhythm section – making for a nice slightly funky groove ...

McCoy Tyner

Sahara
Milestone, 1972. Very Good+
Pretty darn nice stuff from McCoy Tyner, from a period when he was opening up to the soul jazz spiritualism that was around him – a movement that was clearly directly inspired by his work with Coltrane, but which also helped to shape his playing, and return the favor of influence. The group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Griffin & Eddie Lockjaw Davis

Toughest Tenors
Milestone, Early 60s/1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
70's 2LP set that reissues some of the classic tenor material from Griff and Lockjaw recorded for the Jazzland label in the early 60's.

A 70s two-fer that brings together 2 of Evans' wonderful albums recorded with the trio of drummer Paul Motian and bassist Scott LaFaro.

McCoy Tyner

Horizon
Milestone, 1979. Near Mint-
A bit of a change for McCoy Tyner – but a set that's every bit as righteous as his other classics from the 70s! The lineup here is slightly different – with John Blake's violin playing a strong role in the sound, and lots of percussion from Guilherme Franco giving the set an almost ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1979. Near Mint-
A rare electric outing from legendary altoist Jackie McLean – and one that comes off surprisingly well, given that the move was quite a shift for the reedman! The album's got a spiritual current that McLean developed in some of his earlier 70s material – like his gems for the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Composers Workshop Ensemble
Strata East, 1972. Near Mint-
