LP (Item 24179) Roost, 1955 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

A great album of original tracks by pianist Tony Aless, and a record that features some great playing by Seldon Powell! The album is one long set of tracks dedicated to Long Island – with titles like "Fire Island", "Valley Stream", "Levittown", and "Massapequa" – and the piece is performed by a tentet that includes Billy Bauer, Kai Winding, JJ Johnson, Davey Schildkraut, and Nick Travis. The whole thing's got tightly arranged style, in the manner of RCA sessions from the same time. (Japanese pressing, with insert.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

One of the most obscure Johnny Smith albums for Roost – and one of the most striking, too!

A beautiful document of some of the most laidback jazz ever recorded – the sublime 50s recordings of the Johnny Smith quintet, done at a time when the lineup included Stan Getz!

Roost, Early 50s. Very Good
Beautiful early bop material by Getz – recorded at Storyville with a crack little combo that includes Al Haig on piano and Jimmy Raney on guitar. The Raney/Getz sound is a great one – with Raney's jangly guitar notes providing a nice edge for Getz's smoother alto. Titles include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roost, 1956. Very Good-
Nice one! This is the kind of material that's made Sonny Stitt a favorite for rare jazz vinyl hounds, and it's also the kind of session that's previously been sorely missed in most reissue campaigns of his work. The set's nothing fancy – but its warm soulful grooves show Stitt at his best, ... LP, Vinyl record album
