Master Trio

CD (Item 158796) Prestige (UK), 1983 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
The Master Trio of the early 80s – a group that featured Tommy Flanagan on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – and which was recorded in a spirit that was very similar to the Great Jazz Trio and Super Trio – not surprising, as all members here played in one of those groups! The feel of the set is lightly lyrical and swinging – with shortish tracks, but still enough of an equal focus on all components of the group – a feature that's especially nice, given the inventive qualities that Carter and Williams bring to their playing. CD features a total of 7 tracks – and titles include "New Song", "Angel Eyes", "Milestones", "Misterioso", "St Thomas", and "It Don't Mean A Thing".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

We'll Be Together Again
Prestige/OJC, 1961/1968. Used
Nothing fancy – but some great straight-ahead blowing from Stitt and Jug! The album's a quintet session, with John Houston piano, Buster Williams bass, and George Brown drums providing all the rhythm. But the real focus is on the twin-sax frontline – with Sitt taking up the alto on a ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used
An early pairing of Miles Davis & John Coltrane – one of the duo's mid 50s classics for Prestige, as you might guess from the verb in the title! And although "Steamin" might be a word that's a bit too firey to describe the action going on here, the album's got a tremendous ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used
One of the classic early Miles Davis & John Coltrane sessions for Prestige – a well-crafted quintet album that shows Miles finding a stronger voice than ever, and Coltrane beginning to emerge as a key force on his own! Backing is subtle and soulful – handled by the trio of Red ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used
A seminal set from the young Miles Davis – working here on one of his legendary pairings with tenorist John Coltrane, who's equally important to the sound of the session as Miles! Tracks are long, and mix up some modern modes with remade ballads – both sublime expressions of the new ... CD
Prestige, 1965. Used
An excellent live set from Jaki Byard – one of his best Prestige albums ever, and a key indication of his growing genius in the mid 60s! The group's a quartet – with the amazing rhythm team of George Tucker on bass and Alan Dawson on drums – and a young Joe Farrell plays both ... CD

Sonny Rollins

Saxophone Colossus
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used
Quite possibly THE greatest Sonny Rollins album of the early years – or at least the one that has received the most accolades over the years! The record is a brilliant batch of quartet tracks that reinvents bop through Sonny's complicated, yet seemingly automatic solos – an excellent ... CD

Prestige (Japan), 1967. Used
A fantastically beautiful album that strongly proves the old jazz adage "It's not the song, but the singer"! The "singer" in this case is alto player Sonny Criss – and the songs are a middle of the road batch of compositions, like "Sunny", "Willow Weep For ... CD

Calvin Keys

Shawn-Neeq
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1971. Used
A stone classic on the Black Jazz label – and one of the most unique guitar albums ever! We're not sure what the title meant originally – but over the past few decades, it's come to stand for some heavy heavy guitar work from the legendary Calvin Keys – a record that's really ... CD

Lee Konitz

Jazz Nocturne
Evidence, 1994. Used
A great straight set from the later years of Lee Konitz – one that has the altoist swinging wonderfully in the company of pianist Kenny Barron! There's a soulful undercurrent to the record that really shows Barron's hand in the sound of the session – that mature groove that Kenny ... CD

Red Clay (with bonus track)
CTI, 1970. Used
Amazing work from Freddie Hubbard – one of his best albums ever! The title cut's a classic, but all cuts on the album are great – and really set a whole new standard for soul jazz in the 70s! Unlike the freer runs of Miles Davis, Freddie takes things into territory here that's open, ... CD
