Grand Reunion

LP (Item 18581) Limelight, 1965 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

Earl Hines leads a group that includes special guests like Roy Eldridge and Coleman Hawkins – and the material's a relatively traditional batch of tunes, done in Earl's classic piano style. The group performs an extended "Portrait Of Fats Waller", plus shorter tracks like "C Jam Blues", "Rosetta", and "Sunday".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing with deep groove, in the extravagant gatefold cover, with booklet. Cover has light wear and a promo sticker.)

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.

Dizzy Gillespie

New Continent
Limelight, 1962. Very Good Gatefold
A wickedly great album from Dizzy Gillespie – one of his most striking sessions of the early 60s, and a perfect blend of his Latin and modern modes! The album features an extended suite – composed and arranged by Lalo Schifrin, who'd just begun working with Dizzy at the time, and who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey

Buttercorn Lady
Limelight, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
An unusual little record from Art Blakey – a live set recorded at the Lighthouse in 1966, with a band that includes the surprising lineup of Keith Jarrett on piano and Chuck Mangione on trumpet! If you're surprised at the mix of players, and figure that they won't groove with Blakey's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCann

Bucket O' Grease
Limelight, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A killer little set from Les McCann – one of his greatest records of the 60s, thanks to a fair bit of Latin Soul influences! The album's got a groove that's much grittier than Les' other work – a solid, soulful emphasis on bottom rhythms – which are mostly in a boogaloo and shing- ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry Mulligan

Feelin' Good
Limelight, 1965. Very Good+
A surprisingly groovy set of mid 60s tunes by Gerry – recorded in LA with backing by a small group that includes the great Hal Blaine on drums and Pete Jolly on piano, plus a string section conducted by Harry Bluestone. Mulligan's main role is to lay down some moody solos – in a manner ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson & Coleman Hawkins

Bean Bags
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good
A wonderful little record – a real standout in both the careers of Milt Jackson and Coleman Hawkins! The album captures Hawk during his great later years – that time when his sound was even more soulful and inventive than ever – with lots of odd modern undercurrents that really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

ESP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good
An album of dark and subtle beauty – and still one of our favorite Miles Davis albums of all time! The set's not as earth-shattering as some of Davis' other work of the 60s, but that's why we like it so much – because the emerging genius of the group with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Three (Joe Sample, Ray Brown, Shelly Manne)

Three
Inner City, 1976. Very Good+
Quite possibly one of the most successful Japanese piano trio recordings of the 70s – a super-session performed by a group that includes Joe Sample on acoustic piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums! Given that Sample's best known during the era for his electric keys with the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, Late 50s. Very Good
A fantastic album from Clark Terry – head and shoulders above most of his other work, with a sound that's probably only matched by his fine first LP for Emarcy. The record was cut during a batch of sessions that Argo put together in the late 50s – sessions that featured Paul Gonsalves ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

Stitt Plays Bird
Atlantic, 1963. Very Good+
After years of staying free of comparisons with Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt steps confidently into a set of compositions by the late, great one – sounding really wonderful in his own interpretations of these classics! The album's got the same simple and focused still as Stitt's best work on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1960. Very Good
A sweet little album from Johnny – quite different than most of his other sessions at the time, as this one features a big band – a "Big Soul Band", as the title says – filled with some strong Chicago and soul jazz players, and featuring killer arrangements by the great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Allen Vizzutti

Allen Vizzutti
Headfirst, 1980. Very Good+
Allen's on the front cover in a white turtleneck that makes him look like a bit of a square, but the session's a nice jazzy fusion outing, in the best tradition of some of the excellent work from the time on the short-lived Headfirst label! Vizzutti plays trumpet in the lead, often in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
