Explosive Drums

LP (Item 169782) Black & Blue (France), Mid 1970s — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 24.99
With selections by Jo Jones, Cozy Cole, Panama Francis, JC Heard, Oliver Jackson, Michael Silva, and Ed Thigpen.  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light ringwear, with some gloss peel around the edges in back.)

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.

I Ain't Got Nobody
Black & Blue (France), 1972/1975. Near Mint-
Includes sessions from 1975 with Jimmy Shirley on guitar, Slam Stewart on bass, and Jackie Williams on drums; and from 1972 with Jimmy Shirley on guitar, Al Hall on bass, and Tommy Benford on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw Davis

Light & Lovely
Black & Blue (France), 1975. Near Mint-
Nothing too light or lovely here – given that Eddie Lockjaw Davis plays with a tremendous growl on some of the best tracks on the set! Davis is a hell of a tenorist who found his biggest recording fame in the US during the 50s and 60s – but also cut some wonderful work overseas in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Harris

Bossa Nova
Vee Jay, 1963. Very Good+
Very nice, very tight little bossa nova set by Eddie Harris from his early days at Vee Jay! The groove is very open, and Eddie's still at the stage where he can really cut the stuff. His solos ring out hard and cold above some great Lalo Schifrin arrangements, and Lalo also plays piano on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Solo Monk
Columbia, 1965. Near Mint-
Monk plays unaccompanied on a mix of standards and originals, including "Monk's Point", "Dinah", "Ruby, My Dear", "Ask Me Now", and a classic version of "I Surrender, Dear" – done spare and moodily, with a really haunting tone! LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+
Incredible work from saxophonist John Handy – an extended performance from the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1965, and a set that shows that he's grown tremendously as an artist since his early recordings for Roulette! The tracks are quite long – with only 2 numbers overall, "Spanish ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1956. Very Good+
A sampling of nice Verve stuff from the 50's, and includes "Easy Going Bounce" by Johnny Hodges, "Bloomdido" by Charlie Parker, "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart" by Al Hibbler, "Pot Luck" by Stan Getz, and "Port Of Rico" by Illinois Jacquet. LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

Horn Culture
Milestone, 1973. Very Good+
One of Sonny Rollins' real standout sessions from the 70s – a different vibe than before, but a sound that's still as striking than any of his earlier records! The record features him in a slightly more modern group – with backing by Walter Davis Jr on piano, Masuo on gutiar, Bob ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard/Curtis Fuller/Yusef Lateef

Gettin It Together (aka Boss Of The Soul Stream Trombome)
TCB, Early 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+
A session originally issued under the name of Curtis Fuller – titled Boss Of The Soul Stream Trombone! We're not sure what "soul-stream" is as a genre – but given the strength of this record, we'd be more than willing to grant it onto Curtis Fuller all by himself! The record' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alphonse Mouzon

Man Incognito
Blue Note, 1975. Very Good+
A monstrous bit of jazz funk from drummer Alphonse Mouzon – spacey tracks in a choppy style that reminds us a bit of some of the best European fusion albums from the period, but with a harder groove overall! Mini Moog and ARP trip out the sound throughout, but the underlying rhythms are nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Idrees Sulieman, Pepper Adams, Cecil Payne, et al

Roots
Prestige, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
A great little Pretige blowing session album – featuring long long tracks, played by 2 groups of different players, both led by trumpeter Idrees Sulieman! Side one features the track "Roots" – a great laidback groover played by a sextet that include Sulieman on trumpet, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Hamilton (with Eric Dolphy)

With Strings Attached
Warner, 1959. Very Good+
One of the best records that Chico Hamilton cut during the 50s – and one that features Eric Dolphy, who was with Chico's group for a short while! The record's got the quintet (which also includes the excellent Dennis Budimir on guitar) fronting larger string arrangements by Fred Katz (no ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brainstorm

Stormin'
Tabu, 1977. Very Good+
A set that definitely lives up to its title – a stone stormer from Brainstorm – one of the tightest funky ensembles of their generation, and one of the few who could go deep while still laying down a groove! The set's got a perfect balance of modes – enough of the appeal of ... LP, Vinyl record album
