House Calls

LP (Item 2078) New Note, 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-

A great album of soulful tenor work from Willie Williams – with some great rhythm support from Ronnie Mathews on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass, and Kenny Washington on drums – very much in that great space the New Note label hit during the mid 80s! Tracks include "House Calls", "Philly Syndrome", "Osai Light", "Nomad", "City Slicker", "Snow White", "Figure Ten", and "There Will Never Be Another You".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has lightly bent corners and stuck-on cellophane.)

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.

Arista Freedom, 1969/1975. Very Good+
Wonderful early work from the great pianist Stanley Cowell – a set that pre-dates his famous sides for the Strata East label – but which soars out in a very similar style! The material was recorded in New York in 1969 – with a great lineup that features Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Max Roach

Drums Unlimited
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
The drums are certainly unlimited here – and the album's a really unique one, in that it shows Max Roach in 2 different settings – one with a group, and one that's simply solo! One batch of tracks has Max in the company of a tight group of soul jazz players like Freddie Hubbard, Roland ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly Manne

Boss Sounds!
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
One of Shelly Manne's best records of the 60s – largely because the group's so great! Altoist Frank Strozier was playing with Shelly at the time, and his rich talents on the alto make the record almost worth seeking out for him alone – because here, Strozier's opening up his sound a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly Manne

Outside
Contemporary, 1970. Very Good+
If you've ever doubted the influence of Coltrane on jazz, just check this 1970 session from Shelly Manne – one in which he's broken past the usual tight west coast TV jazz sound, and has moved into much freer territory with a group of younger (and hairier!) players. The group includes Pete ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

White Rabbit
CTI, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the moodiest sessions on CTI from the early days – and a landmark album that took George Benson from the funky jazz scene into the upper reaches of 70s jazz. The record was put together by Don Sebesky, and it's a lot more high concept than some of George's earlier work – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson with Clark Terry

Oscar Peterson Trio + One
Mercury, 1964. Very Good
Oscar Peterson's trio is augmented here by a famous guest – trumpeter Clark Terry, whose horn adds a nice bit of punctuation to the set, and makes the record a strong standout in the 60s catalogs of both players! The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising ... LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll Garner

Gemini
London, 1971. Very Good+
Erroll Garner gets a great added boost here – thanks to Jose Mangual Jr, who plays congas on this great date from 1971! The presence of Mangual's congas make the album sound a bit like some of the George Shearing Amigos albums on MPS – a sound that still echoes the older modes of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Off The Top
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+
A lean little set from Jimmy Smith's back to basics years of the early 80s – an album that's recorded in a relatively old school soul jazz mode! Jimmy's mostly playing Hammond here – but also uses a bit of Arp strings at times – and the rest of the group members include George ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lorez Alexandria

How Will I Remember You?
Discovery, 1977. Very Good
A great album from the late 70's, featuring the excellent jazz vocalist backed by a totally tight group led by Gildo Mahones. The sound is deep and loud, and there's some nice phat bass on here, particularly on the intro to "Baltimore Oriole", which has a nice break sound at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Brown

People
Polydor, 1980. Very Good
Late 70s James, and a little bit more up-tempo and clubby funky, but still some decent stuff from The Godfather. Includes "Don't Stop the Funk", "Let the Funk Flow", "Stone Cold Drag", and "Are We Really Dancing". LP, Vinyl record album

Roxanne Shante

Bad Sister
Cold Chillin, 1989. Very Good+
Surprisingly nice album from the late 80s, with tight Marley Marl production that sounds great on tracks like "Knockin' Hiney", "Fatal Attraction", "Go On Girl", and "Live On Stage". LP, Vinyl record album

Intruders

Energy Of Love
Philadelphia International, 1974. Very Good+
A fantastic album from The Intruders – their last full record as a group, and a set that really shows all the growth they'd experienced as a harmony group in just a few short years! We love their early singles, and even their previous album for Philly International – but there's also ... LP, Vinyl record album
