This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.
With Sonny Fortune on alto, Larry Willis on piano, Walter Booker on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Includes a great version of "Book's Bossa" – plus "Blue Autumn", "Tallahassee Kid", "Fifth Labor Of Hercules", and "For Duke & Cannon". LP, Vinyl record album
Sweet sweet sweet! Double Image was a late 70s jazz combo that features the dual powers of David Friedman and David Samuels on vibes – as well as marimba and percussion – making for a really moody two-vibes feel that was years ahead of its time! The tracks spin out with an airy feel ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Johnny Griffin's best European recordings of the 70s! Like a number of the contemporaneous releases by older American reedmen on the Steeplechase label, this one has the leader as the main soloist in a small group setting that includes Kenny Drew on piano, Mads Vinding on bass, and Ed ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the best Japanese trumpeters of the 70s – heard here in a great set of fusion that mixes his solo talents with a whole host of great American players too! The set was recorded in Electric Lady at the end of the 70s – and also features some great tenor and soprano sax from Carter ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very apt title – as Jackie McLean sits in for a soulful session with the Great Jazz Trio of Hank Jones, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – all "old bottles" at this point in their career, but working together beautifully to brew some very mellow "new wine"! The album' ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little session that features some of the best work of both players from the 70s! Toshiko Akioshi produced the record for husband Lew – and he and Marsh both have plenty of room to blow around creatively, working with a piano-less group that features Larry Bunker on drums and John ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of a number of late 70s milestones from the Great Jazz Trio – that sublime grouping of Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! Like the rest of their gems from the time, the album's got this simple, subtle brilliance – a way of approaching piano trio ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the more compelling sessions from the left side of the Inner City jazz label of the 70s – work that's partly fusion, but with plenty of aspects that push it far from the mainstream! Leader David Friesen plays acoustic bass on the set, but he's in a group with John Stowell on electric ... LP, Vinyl record album
A real standout in the early career of trumpeter Freddie Hubbard – a very unique session that has him working with some larger arrangements in the background – blowing these magical solos over the top, while still hitting a great edge with the rest of the musicians as well! There's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
