House Calls

LP (Item 2078) New Note, 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

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.

Jimmy Smith

Sit On It!
Mercury, 1977. Near Mint-
One of our favorite later albums from organist Jimmy Smith – and a set that cooks heavily in a wicked blend of jazz, funk, and soul! The style's a bit like the groove that Johnny Hammond hit during his Gears period – arranged by Eugene McDaniels and Alan Silvestri, with an approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Sermon!
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good
One of the Jimmy Smith "jam session" Blue Notes, with a large group that includes Lee Morgan, Lou Donaldson, George Coleman, Tina Brooks, and Art Blakey – nearly all of whom take long solos and dig deep to compete with each other. 3 long tracks, "The Sermon", "JOS&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jerome Richardson

Groove Merchant
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good
A great little album of jazzy tracks from multi-talented reedman Jerome Richardson! The album's got a sort of jazzy meets Now Sound sound – sort of like the Benny Golson or Cal Tjader albums on Verve from the time, and it's a great one if you dig that sort of thing. The tracks are mostly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Lytle

Everything Must Change
Muse, 1978. Very Good
A later Muse date with legend John Patton on organ, Miles' drummer Al Foster diggin' in with the legendary George Duvivier on bass, and harp and synthesizer thrown in for added layers of sound. Johnny's signature songs the "Village Caller" and the mellow burner "Lela" are cast ... LP, Vinyl record album

Deodato

Deodato 2
CTI, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Funky keyboards galore – and one of the greatest records ever from this legendary Brazilian jazz talent! The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Barnet & His Orchestra

Redskin Romp
RCA, 1955. Near Mint-
Later work from swing sax giant Charlie Barnet. While this theme seems rather un-PC these days, the style here is even more sophisticated than before – as the Barnet groove is updated with some nice 50s arrangements from Billy May. Includes Barnet's famous playing of "Cherokee", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Blues Quintet Plus One

Introducing The Afro Blues Quintet Plus One
Mira, Late 60s. Very Good
Excellent work from this totally sweet west coast Latin combo – a wonderful group who mixed Latin percussion with piano and vibes – in a manner that's similar to some of Cal Tjader's best Verve work of the 60s! Some tracks also make nice use of flute or alto sax – creating a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Roach

Freddie Roach Soul Book
Prestige, 1966. Very Good
Incredibly groovy work from one of the hippest organ talents of the 60s – a true "soul book" of tu nes, most of which are originals penned by Freddie Roach! The sound here is really unique – a bit in the R&B-inspired style of Freddie's work for Blue Note, but also with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
People, 1973. Very Good
An incredible album – a landmark piece of funk that nobody should be without, funk fan or not! The album is the second to feature James Brown's famous backing combo of the early 70s – and unlike their first one, which was really more of a collection of singles, this album has the group ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chocolate City, 1978. Very Good
One of our favorite Cameo albums of all time – a record that still has the group sounding plenty funky, but also maybe hitting a more sophisticated one – one that comes through perfectly on the message-oriented title track! There's a sense of compression going on here – ... LP, Vinyl record album

George McCrae

Rock Your Baby
TK, 1974. Very Good
The record that forever put George McCrae on the map – and a crossover bit of Miami soul from the 70s with all the key elements of the TK sound firmly in place! George's vocals are nicely flanged out in that cool production mode that TK was using with its big acts of the time (an approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bohannon

Insides Out
Dakar, 1974. Very Good
A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual! Although most of Bohannon's work from the time is up-tempo and funky, side two of this album has some amazing slow spacey cuts – done with a drum sound that's still quite hard, but just slower than ...
