Turn It Over

LP (Item 23427) Polydor, 1970 — Condition: Very Good

Although Tony Williams started out as one of the most subtle drummers of the 60s, this album has him coming a long way from his "new thing" Blue Note recordings – and taking off with enough power to reach the moon! The group featured is Williams classic Lifetime lineup – with John McLaughlin and Larry Young, who was also reaching far past his Blue Note groove here – and bassist Jack Bruce, who was working his jazz chops strongly after his years in Cream. There's a raw power here that cannot be denied – a ferocity that must have been incredibly fresh at the time, and which is still, today, one of the clearest visions of a jazz rock fusion that was soon muddied too quickly in the heady waters of 70s jazz. Titles include "To Whom It May Concern", "Right On", "This Night This Song", and "Allah Be Praised".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Return To Forever

Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy
Polydor, 1973. Near Mint-
Somehow it seems to us that the members of Return To Forever always cut better albums under their own names than for RTF, but these sides are still not without their merit. Like everyone else, we're rethinking our distaste for fusion, and this set finds Chick Corea, Lenny White, Stanley Clarke and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Return To Forever

No Mystery
Polydor, 1975. Very Good
Hard grooving work from the middle years of the Return To Forever group – featuring the line up with Chick Corea on keys, synths & percussion, Stanley Clarke on bass, organ and more, Lenny White on percussion and Al DiMeola on guitar. As you'd expect from this crew, this is some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chick Corea

My Spanish Heart
Polydor, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Given that Chick Corea first got his start working in the New York Latin scene back in the 60s, the album's a bit of a return to his roots – even if the general theme here is Spanish, and not Afro-Cuban! The Corea Spanish Heart here is cast in some darker, more contemplative tones than more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor (Germany), Mid 60s. Very Good+
Features the tracks "After You've Gone", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "Perlita", "Moon River" & more. LP, Vinyl record album

Max Greger

Greger In The Night
Polydor (Germany), Mid 60s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor (Germany), 1972. Near Mint-
An excellent non-US album from Stan Getz – and a real rarity too! The group here is the same one that recorded the soaring Captain Marvel album – and features excellent keyboards from Chick Corea – really stretching out alongside some wailing solos from Stan! Really beautiful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sammy Price with Lucky Thompson

Sammy Price Avec Lucky Thompson
Polydor (France), 1957. Very Good
A very unique session that features the often-modern tenor sax of Lucky Thompson in the company of bluesman Sammy Price, who plays piano and sings on a number of the tracks on the record. Amazingly, Thompson's raspy tenor tone is a perfect fit with the style of the recording – laying down ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Hamilton

El Chico
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
Amazing, simply amazing – and light years ahead of the staid sounds that Chico Hamilton was cutting in the 50s! Hamilton's one of those players who has an amazing range to his music – almost all of it really incredible, as Chico always shifts things up over time – continually ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Very nice 2LP set that collects some of Herbie's best 60s work for Blue Note – and which moves past the hits to feature some nice gems from hard to find albums. This work is a beautiful mix of tight soul jazz and freer modal playing – and nearly every track's a perfect example of why ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff

Dynamic Jack McDuff
Prestige, 1964. Good+ Gatefold
A great groover from Brother Jack! The record is one of a few that Prestige cut matching Jack's hot quartet with the larger arrangements of Benny Golson – and that formula created some real winners that still sound great today! Sure, the formula was initiated by matching Jimmy Smith with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Got My Mojo Workin'
Verve, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
The title's a bit bluesy, and the record is too – one of the grittier collaborations between Hammond legend Jimmy Smith and ultra-hip arranger Oliver Nelson – who manages to make the whole thing come across with all the right soul styles in the end! There's definitely a nod to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Swingtime (Italy), 1956. Near Mint-
An excellent collection that features rare work that Konitz recorded in Germany during 1956! The set has Konitz playing with a well-selected batch of European modernists – including Lars Gullin on baritone, Hans Koller on tenor, and Roland Kovac on piano – and the nature of the tracks ...
