Another Step Forward

LP (Item 16262) Ovation, 1969 — Condition: Very Good

Joe Morello is best known the to the world as the drummer for the Dave Brubeck Quartet, but he also cut some very nice LPs on his own, and this is one of them. The record is a nice set of jazzy tracks, with kind of a groovy 60s feel, and loud swinging arrangements that are nicely punctuated by Morello's tight drumming. Buddy Terry plays tenor, and his solos are in the lead on a lot of tracks. Titles include "Give Me A Simple Tune", "Church Key", "Not So Fast", and "The Sound Of Silence".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cutout hole. Vinyl has a click on "Sound Of Silence".)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Criss Cross
Ovation, 1976. Very Good+
Post-Black Jazz recording by Calvin Keys, but still for the same parent label (Ovation), and still with the same sort of feel.

Inflated Tear
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint-
A landmark album from Roland Kirk – one of his key 60s sides for Atlantic records, and an amazing blend of soul jazz, hardbop, and freer thinking styles!

Marion Brown

Why Not?
ESP, 1968. Near Mint-
Brilliant early work by Marion Brown – both soulful and adventurous, less "out" than some of the other ESP albums from the time – and more in the post-Coltrane spirit of work by Pharoah Sanders and some of the Strata East crowd. The group on the album is a quartet – ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Freeman

Franticdiagnosis
Bam-Boo, 1972. Sealed
A legendary bit of funk – and a killer record from one of the most unique guitarists ever!

Soul Message
Prestige, 1965. Very Good-

Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good Gatefold
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty!

Anthony Braxton

Five Pieces 1975
Arista, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Braxton's best records for Arista, and a great quartet session that features Kenny Wheeler on trumpet, Dave Holland on bass, and Barry Altschul on drums.

Sun Goddess
Columbia, 1974. Near Mint-
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s!
