Classics Of Modern Jazz Vol 3 – The Tadd Dameron Band

LP (Item 20452) Jazzland, Late 40s/1962 — Condition: Very Good+

Very sharp LP issue of some of the legendary late 40's bop recordings that were cut in New York under the leadership of Tadd Dameron! The groups are all pretty darn smoking, and the record features some classic work by Fats Navarro on trumpet, Allan Eager on tenor, Milt Jackson on vibes, and Kenny Clarke on drums. Tracks are longer than the usual 3-minute bop side, and titles include "Wahoo", "Good Bait", "Tiny's Blues", and "Symphonette".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Orange label Jazzland pressing. Cover has some clear tape in each corner, but is nice overall – and vinyl is nice and clean.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Clark Terry/Kenny Dorham

Top Trumpets
Jazzland, Late 50s. Very Good
A strange little album that combines tracks from 2 different earlier Riverside LPs – Serenade To A Bus Set by Clark Terry, and another session that features Kenny Dorham and Ernie Henry, possibly issued under Henry's name as Seven Standards & A Blues. The Terry set features Johnny ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint-
A killer set of grooves from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – one of the first and one of the few to ever combine vibes with Hammond organ – in this case, the work of Milt Harris on the keys! The group is a very rhythmic trio, thanks to Harris on the bass pedals, and Penny Hinant on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Astrud Gilberto

Getz Au Go Go
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! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tom Browne

Love Approach
GRP/Arista, 1980. Very Good- Gatefold
An early gem from trumpeter Tom Browne – a set that not only firmly established Browne as one of the best young players of his generation, but which also paved the way for a whole new direction for jazz funk in the 80s! The record is a perfect example of how great the mix of R&B rhythms ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bethlehem, 1957. Near Mint-
A nice selection of recordings done by John Coltrane for Bethlehem Records – mostly cut during December of 1957, and issued on the albums The Winner's Circle and Art Blakey Big Band! The music's a bit atypical for Trane, but is more than just a curiosity, with Trane fitting nicely into the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll Garner

Dreamstreet
ABC/Octave, 1961. Near Mint-
Garner grooves nicely here – finding an almost renewed energy for the 60s, but still hitting all those highly-rhythmic modes we love so much in his early work! The recording quality is great – lots of bold echo from the piano, and even a bit of Erroll's grunting vocalizations somewhere ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia (Japan), 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
Miles Davis' first-ever performance in Japan – a really unique concert that featured the quintet with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by a young Sam Rivers on tenor! The presence of Rivers really gives the set an edge – and although Miles is holding Sam ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Infinity
Impulse, 1965/1972. Very Good Gatefold
The John Coltrane sound stretching out to Infinity – beautifully collaborating core spiritual sounds recorded when The Great One was still alive, and later string passages done by Alice Coltrane in the early 70s! The initial tracks are very open and almost easygoing – not the full-on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maze

Joy & Pain
Capitol, 1980. Very Good-
Classic modern soul from the legendary Frankie Beverly! The record's perhaps one of their best remembered – most likely for the killer cut "Joy & Pain", which has a great hook that's been sampled many times over the years. The record also features the wonderful "Southern ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

Fever
Polydor, 1979. Very Good-
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely ... LP, Vinyl record album

Norman Connors

Romantic Journey
Buddah, 1976. Near Mint-
A warmly romantic journey from the stellar Norman Connors – but a set that's also got a fair bit of spiritual jazz undercurrents too! Norman's at that perfect Starship point in his career – giving equal space to the vocals and instrumental passages on the record – at a level that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Kendricks

Eddie Kendricks
Tamla, 1973. Very Good-
A legendary album from the great Eddie Kendricks – a set that not only has the singer soaring on the kind of sublime old school vocal numbers he always did so well – but one that also has Eddie stepping out into some great dancefloor modes that would have a huge impact for years to come! ...
