George Shearing & The Montgomery Brothers

LP (Item 22970) Jazzland, 1961 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Some of jazz's most sensitive artists get together in a lyrical set of light-handed ditties. Shearing's piano is a surprisingly nice complement to the vibes/bass/guitar sound of The Montgomery Brothers – and the group is augmented by some nice Latin percussion. Tracks are short, and titles include "Double Deal", "Mambo In Chimes", "Lois Ann", "And Then I Wrote", and "No Hard Feelings". (Orange label Bill Grauer Productions pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Alma Alegre (aka Afro Jaws)
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good
A second version of the album that was also issued under the title Afro Jaws – a beautiful record that has Lockjaw's hard tenor blowing strong over a Latin group led by Ray Barretto. An amazing mix of sounds, and one of the few cross-genre attempts in jazz that actually works. Hear Lock ... LP, Vinyl record album
Glidin' Along
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good
Benny Green's trombone playing has always been a bright light in a sometimes bleak side of the jazz spectrum. His style is deep and soulful, and he swings the trombone with a fluidity that most would apply to hardbop trumpet players. This sweet quintet session from 1961 has him playing in a very ...

A collection of some of Kenton's early 50s hits, presented here as "encores", with most of the tracks arranged by Pete Rugolo. 11 tracks in all, including "He's Funny That Way", "Painted Rhythm", "Journey To Brazil", "Somnambulism", "Chorale ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cruisin' Featuring The Rhythm Sections
Jazzland, Late 50s. Good+
A pretty cool-looking Jazzland album that combines tracks from 2 other earlier Riverside albums – one that we've identified as Clark Terry's Serenade To A Bus Seat, the other we're not sure of. Side 1 features Kelly, Jones, Paul Chambers, Johnny Griffin, and Clark Terry on the tunes "Sta ... LP, Vinyl record album
Whisper Not
Jazzland, 1958. Very Good-
A surprisingly wonderful set from Wynton Kelly – really fluid and swinging, and with a unique approach on half the material! The core group of the set features Kenny Burrell on guitar, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but then Jones sits it out on the second side ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good-
One of Johnny Lytle's monster vibes 'n organ LPs from the early 60's. Released on the Jazzland subsidiary of Riverside, and a tough one to find! The album comes complete with the great original track "Lela", a jazz dance classic if there ever was one, and other nice tracks like "Hap ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dr Chicago
Beehive, 1985. Sealed
A nice hardbop revival session for Clifford Jordan – recorded with a style that takes us back to his first years on wax – with an excellent lineup, and a very strong focus on the dynamic of the ensemble! The lineup includes Red Rodney on trumpet and flugelhorn, Jaki Byard on piano, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Night Of The Cookers Vol 2
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good+
A landmark set for Blue Note – one that features Freddie Hubbard working in raw, firey, freewheeling territory – given space that few other players at the label were getting at the time! The two volume set features tracks recorded live at Club La Marchal in Brooklyn – and have ... LP, Vinyl record album
Yellow & Green
CTI, 1976. Very Good Gatefold
Moody, moody stuff from Ron – who's really opening up his scope on this album, one cut during his strong emergence as an arranger/composer with a bent for pushing the bass way past its traditional jazz role. The record features Carter on a variety of basses, and features different groupings ... LP, Vinyl record album
Taste Of Freedom
MGM, 1970. Very Good
Massively groovy work from Monty Alexander – thanks to some hip, soulful backings from the legendary Johnny Pate! The sound here is a lot more swinging than some of Alexander's trio albums – much more of a Verve-styled session with fuller backings behind a main soloist – in this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dial S For Sonny
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good
Could there be a more classic Blue Note session? From the cover, to the title, to the hardbopping grooves of the set, this Sonny Clark late 50s smoker is one of the label's best! Clark's working here at the height of his powers – leading an all-star group that includes Art Farmer on trumpet ... LP, Vinyl record album
