❔

Prime late 70s AACM/loft jazz material, composed and led by Threadgill, and featuring groups that include avant players like Joseph Jarman, Douglas Ewart, Amina Claudine Myers, and Rufus Reid. Titles include "Sir Simpleton", "Celebration", and "Air Song" – and most tracks have some poetic vocals, sung by Myers.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner and light wear.)

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.

Art Ensemble Of Chicago

Paris Session
Arista, 1969/1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Nice 2LP set that brought the US some of the great recordings cut by the Art Ensemble while they were in Paris (some of which have also come out under the Black Lion imprint). All of the material was recorded in the Polydor Studios in Paris in 1969, and the tracks include "The Spiritual" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Max Roach

Freedom Now Suite
Candid/Columbia, Early 60s/Late 70s. Very Good+
Reissue pressing of Max Roach's legendary political suite, an insistent plea for freedom and equality during the civil rights movement. Max's group is joined by Abbey Lincoln and Olatunji, and they pound their way through this powerful suite which features lyrics by Oscar Brown Jr. Includes the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Randy Weston

Tanjah
Polydor, 1973. Very Good+
One of Weston's many "comeback" albums – which he seems to make about every 10 years or so – but still a great one! Randy's playing cool electric piano, and he's backed by a tight larger ensemble arranged by Melba Liston. The record retains a lot of the best elements of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott

Blue Seven
Prestige, 1961. Very Good+
A standout early session from organist Shirley Scott – noteworthy in that it's a quintet recording, different than Shirley's mostly-trio output from the time! Here, she's working in a group that includes Oliver Nelson on tenor sax and Joe Newman on trumpet – and Nelson's edgey tone ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson

Canadiana Suite
Limelight, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Oscar Peterson's most sophisticated albums of the 60s – an extended suite of tracks dedicated to the soul and spirit of Canada! The tunes are all originals, and have a really lush, vivid sort of feel – one that still has undercurrents of Peterson's usual soulful style, but which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pentagon (Cedar Walton, Clifford Jordan, etc)

Pentagon
East Wind (Japan), 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
A really wonderful album that's sometimes overlooked because of it's relatively oblique cover and name – which both hide the wonderful talents within! In truth, the set might be billed as a Cedar Walton session – or maybe almost an Eastern Rebellion one – as the vibe here is very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Quiet Village
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
An undisputed classic in the exotica genre – and the record that yielded Martin Denny his biggest hit! The title track "Quiet Village" was originally written by Les Baxter, but it was Martin Denny's approach that really managed to send the tune over the top – using spare ... LP, Vinyl record album

June Christy

Gone For the Day
Capitol, 1957. Very Good
That's "gone" – as in the way June Christy really sends us – vocals that take us to a place that few other 50s singers could ever hope to reach! June's work here is a masterpiece of melancholic understatement – far less overblown than some of her pop contemporaries, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barry White & Glodean White

Barry & Glodean
CBS, 1981. Very Good
A later set from Barry – recorded at the beginning of the 80s with his wife Glodean! The album has Barry and Glodean singing together in a set of smooth modern soul duets – slightly different than his solo work, but with a subdued edge that's still very strongly in the Barry/Love ...
