LP, Vinyl record album

(€5.08 || £4.50 || ¥673) (approx.)

A totally great Grover Washington record – and with 25 years behind us, we really now realize how fantastic all the early Kudu sessions really were! The record was recorded live at the Bijou, and is spread out over 2 long LPs, with lots of room for tasty open-ended solos by Grover and the group. Includes the great version of "Lock It In The Pocket", plus "Funkfoot", "Sausalito", "Summer Song", and a long version of "Mr Magic". (Cover has light wear, a cutout hole, and a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

All The King's Horses
Kudu, 1972. Near Mint-
One of Grover Washington's first albums as a leader – cut hot on the heels of some great work as a sideman, including some key funky dates with Charles Earland on Prestige! The sound here is a bit looser than some of Groover's smoother sides to come – a nice blend of his earthy jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Secret Place
Kudu, 1976. Near Mint-
Nothing too secret about this record – given that it was one of Grover Washington's biggest hits of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album features four long tracks – all stretched out and layered together with washes of funky, yet subtle sounds – in a perfect blend that let ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drum Suite
Columbia, 1956/1957. Very Good-
An incredible early experimental album from Art Blakey – one of the first to feature him in expanded percussion format! Side one of the album features the extended "Drum Suite" – a set of 3 tracks ("The Sacrifice", "Cubano Chant", and "Oscalypso") ... LP, Vinyl record album
1st Bassman
Vee Jay, 1961. Very Good
One of the most obscure sessions as a leader from the legendary bassman Paul Chambers – the crucial talent who really helped reinvent the role of his instrument in jazz during the 50s – and who left our planet all too soon! The record's got a vibe that's a bit different than Paul's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico Rico
Kudu, 1976. Near Mint-
Hank Crawford's always been a great saxophonist – but he's also one that sometimes works even more strongly in a bigger group setting – as you'll hear on this 70s Kudu session with funky arranger David Matthews! Dave takes the groove forward from the sound that Hank sometimes had back ... LP, Vinyl record album
Anything Goes
Kudu, 1975. Near Mint-
Ron Carter gets sweet and funky on this 70s classic for Kudu Records – a set that's a fair bit different than some of Carter's acoustic trio sides of the decade, or some of his more high-concept work in recent years! The approach here is free and flowing – larger arrangements penned by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tenor Conclave
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint-
Tenors can't get any more conclaved than this – as the record brings together 4 players on the instrument in a great match from 2 of the best sides of 50s jazz! John Coltrane and Hank Mobley represent the more open, soulful side of the spectrum – and Al Cohn and Zoot Sims the tighter, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prophet
Kudu, 1972. Very Good
One of the best of Johnny Hammond's albums for Kudu! The arrangements are by Pee Wee Ellis – yes, THAT Pee Wee Ellis, the guy who played alto for James Brown! Ellis gives the record a slightly different feel than other Kudu arrangers (like Bob James) might have, and the usual slow building ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Classic Jimmy Smith trio material, and a savage bit of raw organ grooves from the late 50's. Jimmy's work on the keys is fierce, and filled with wild flourishes that you don't always hear in his later albums. The record includes a nice long version of Dizzy Gillespie's "The Champ", plus ...

Wild Horses Rock Steady
Kudu, 1971. Very Good+
Excellent Kudu work from one of the greatest organists of the 70s – a player who really stretched out and opened up his groove during the decade! Johnny Hammond was also known as Johnny Hammond Smith back in the 60s – but by the time of his legendary run at Kudu/CTI, he'd hit a much ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint-
A great collection of Miles' classic work for Columbia – one that features a few really hard to find gems! To us, the highlight is 2 tracks – "Stella By Starlight" and "On Green Dolphin Street" – both of which are subtle modal gems lifted from Miles' rare Jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
