Mustang!

LP (Item 16968) Verve, 1966 — Condition: Near Mint-
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

A fantastic LP of beautiful modal tracks, played by one of the most underrated reed players ever, during the most fruitful time of his career. At this point, Amy's moved away from his bluesy Texas roots, and has discovered a freer Coltrane-esque sound that works beautifully with his spiritual, strident compositions. Although the record was pushed by Verve with the funkier track "Mustang" (also recorded by Donald Byrd), the record really sounds more like a Nathan Davis record, with a mix of tenor and soprano sax that is extremely spiritual. Tracks include "Mustang" (2 versions), "Shaker Heights", "Enojo", and "Old Devil Moon".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(MGM pressing. Cover has two cutout holes, a very light stain at the bottom of the spine, and a small split in the top seam.)

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.

Curtis Amy

Way Down
Pacific Jazz, 1962. Very Good
An incredible album by one of the best soul jazz reed players to emerge from the LA scene of the 60s! Amy started his career playing R&B-ish organ/tenor material, but by this point, he was really opening up his bag a lot – hitting modalish grooves that showed definite traces of Coltrane, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis Amy

Tippin On Through
Pacific Jazz, 1963. Very Good-
One of the best albums ever by Curtis Amy, and a tasty live set recorded during the period when he was beginning to steep himself in Coltrane influences, and stretch out his tenor sound a bit. The album's also notable for being an early appearance on wax by Roy Ayers, who is incorrectly listed in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cal Tjader

Prophet
Verve, 1968. Very Good+
One of the last albums that Cal Tjader ever cut for Verve – and it's also one of the best! The great Joao Donato's sitting in on piano, and the set has a beautiful mix of Brazilian and Latin grooves, with added Verve groovy touches thrown in for good measure! Don Sebesky did the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Luiz Bonfa

Jazz Samba Encore!
Verve, 1963. Very Good
Hardly an "encore" of the first Stan Getz Jazz Samba album – as this set's got a slightly different feel, and lots of great elements that make it really unique! This time around, Brazilian musician Luiz Bonfa is on guitar – already a skilled proponent of the bossa by the time ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1960. Very Good+
One of the strongest sides to feature Diz's mid 50s format – a larger group than usual, an octet, with a more tightly arranged style that showed that he continued to develop as an artist long after the days of his early bop sides. The album's also noteworthy for demonstrating Dizzy's great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
We don't know if we'd stretch so far as to use the word "exciting" to talk about Terry's work – but his band here is filled with some great west coast players – including Bill Perkins, Richie Kamuca, Mel Lewis, Frank Rosolino, and Joe Maini – all coming together with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Burrell

Asphalt Canyon Suite
Verve, 1970. Very Good+
A stunner from Kenny Burrell – one of his most sophisticated and soulful sessions of the 60s! Kenny's working here with the ultra-cool arranger Johnny Pate – best known for his work with Curtis Mayfield, and his 70s soundtrack fame – but a heck of a creative talent when it comes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

Have Trumpet Will Excite
Verve, 1959. Good+
Diz breaks past his bop playing, takes a bit of a turn towards swing-based material, and also hits this nice rolling groove that gives a bit of a peek at the way he'd sound in the 60's, when he had Lalo Schifrin on piano, and more of a Latin sound. He's backed here by Junior Mance on piano, Les ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

Tequila
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
A classic from Wes Montgomery – and exactly the kind of record that made him a legend in the 60s! The set's one of Wes' collaborations with arranger Claus Ogerman – a key talent who was really on the rise at the time, and who understood how to perfectly balance Montgomery's unique ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

California Dreaming
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
A stone classic on Verve! Back in the 60s, Wes Montgomery must have been California Dreamin – because by the time of this LP, he'd come a long way from his Indiana roots – and had used the best part of the hip west coast scene to add a lot to his style – fuller rhythms and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Laurindo Almeida

Stan Getz With Laurindo Almeida
Verve, 1963. Very Good Gatefold
One of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Horace Silver

Stylings Of Silver
Blue Note, 1957. Sealed
A great Horace Silver album – and one of the rarest! The record features some top-line material that virtually defines Silver's post-Jazz Messengers sound – tracks that come out with a hard and heavy groove, yet which also have a lightness in the mix too – a sense of play and ...
