Joe Williams At Newport 63

LP (Item 22117) RCA, 1963 — Condition: Very Good

A killer album that's one of Joe's best! Unlike some of his other albums as a vocalist, in which the arrangements are a bit too cluttered to swing, this nice relaxed live set has Joe hitting a very soulful groove, and stepping out nicely on cuts like "Gravy Waltz", "Come Back Baby", "April In Paris", "Some Of This N Some Of That", and "She's Warm, She's Willing, She's Wonderful". Backing is by an all-star group that includes Coleman Hawkins, Junior Mance, and Zoot Sims.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Deep groove stereo pressing.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Solid State, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
A funky big band album, recorded by Thad Jones & Mel Lewis, with the great Joe Williams on vocals!

Great bold arrangements from Frank Hunter – perfect for the magnificent voice of Joe Williams! LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good
An excellent album of vocals by the great Joe Williams! Joe's always been a fine singer, but with Basie, he really gets the backing he needs to do his work the best. And although this album isn't as authenico as it might be, it still comes from a time when Verve really knew how to handle singers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Susan Barrett

Susan Barrett
RCA, 1966. Very Good+
A lesser-known swinger on the RCA label from the 60s – a vocalist who hearkens back to the imprint's female sessions of the 50s, but who brings in some groovier touches as well! Backings are by Marion Evans, who helps Susan's full vocals find some nice spaces in the tunes – sometimes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Wiley

West Of The Moon
RCA, 1956. Very Good
A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ames Brothers with Esquivel

Hello Amigos
RCA, 1960. Very Good
A very unique outing – a set that mixes the sweet harmonies of The Ames Brothers with wild backings from Esquivel! Most of the tracks are in Spanish, and have Esquivel doing a standard Latin sound, but which also approaches his own solo work in some of the more unusual moments! LP, Vinyl record album

Lambert, Hendricks & Bavan

Live At Basin Street East
RCA, 1963. Very Good-
If you're a fan of Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross, then you'll dig this set of tracks by the Lambert and Hendricks group with Yolanda Bavan, who replaced Annie Ross in the trio during the early 60's. Bavan swings like the best of them, and this live set's a nice batch of vocalese tracks with all the ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1960. Very Good
Della Reese gets a Latin twist – and result is one of her grooviest albums from the early days! Backings are arranged by OB Masingill, who does a good job of mixing RCA Latin modes with the soulful settings used on Della's straighter jazz records – balancing things out nicely so that ...

Toni Harper

Lady Lonely
RCA, 1959. Very Good-
Wonderful work from Toni Harper – a singer who was really years ahead of her time, given her sense of style and sophistication! Harper's working here with Marty Paich – and the tunes are a beautiful batch of late nite numbers that carry all the blue tones you might expect from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
