LP, Vinyl record album

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

A lost bossa jazz classic from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded at a time when Lalo Schifrin was working in his combo! The record's got a cool, laidback kind of groove – one that's miles away from Gillespie's earlier bop work, and which shows him opening up his rhythmic conception strongly in the 60s. Rhythms are percolated by the piano of Schifrin, guitar of Bola Sete, bass of Chris White, and some well-chosen added percussion work – and the overall groove is one of the best American takes on the bossa jazz sound of the time, delivered with wonderful horn work from Dizzy on trumpet, Leo Wright on flute and alto, and Charlie Ventura on tenor! Even familiar tunes are transformed by the sound – and titles include "In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town", "Careless Love", "Taboo", "One Note Samba", "Pergunte Ao Joao", and "Chega de Saudade".

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.

Jazzman, 1970s. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Allegro, Early 50s. Very Good
Obscure work from Dizzy Gillespie – a session presented with no dates or players, but pretty nice stuff overall! Dizzy's trumpet is right out front, and most numbers feature a slightly larger group – not really a full orchestra, but most likely an octet or tentet. Titles include " ... LP, Vinyl record album
World Statesman
Verve, 1956. Very Good-
A real gem from the height of Dizzy's big band years at Verve – a stunning little set that features a hip larger group that includes Joe Gordon, Melba Liston, Rod Leavitt, Phil Woods, Ernie Wilkins, and Billy Mitchell. The groove here is well-orchestrated, well-placed soul – with less ... LP, Vinyl record album
New Continent
Limelight, 1962. Very Good+ Gatefold
A wickedly great album from Dizzy Gillespie – one of his most striking sessions of the early 60s, and a perfect blend of his Latin and modern modes! The album features an extended suite – composed and arranged by Lalo Schifrin, who'd just begun working with Dizzy at the time, and who ... LP, Vinyl record album
Free Ride
Pablo, 1977. Very Good+
A wicked bit of 70s funky fusion from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded with his old piano player from the 60s, Lalo Schifrin! Lalo arranged, conducted, and plays plenty of keyboards – giving the album a wicked groove that's a bit different than some of Dizzy's other 70s work – a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Have Trumpet Will Excite
Verve, 1959. Very Good
Diz breaks past his bop playing, takes a bit of a turn towards swing-based material, and also hits this nice rolling groove that gives a bit of a peek at the way he'd sound in the 60's, when he had Lalo Schifrin on piano, and more of a Latin sound. He's backed here by Junior Mance on piano, Les ... LP, Vinyl record album
Night Lights
Philips, 1963. Near Mint-
A really nice one from Gerry – an oft-overlooked mid 60s session, one that has him working with a sextet that includes Jim Hall, Art Farmer, and Bob Brookmeyer, in addition to usual Mulligan rhythm-mates Bill Crow and Dave Bailey. There's a nice soulful bottom to the set, and stronger ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flavors
Philips (Japan), 1980. Near Mint-
A totally great Japanese-only album from Hammond hero Lonnie Smith – a set with a 1980 date, but one that (we think) comes from the same time as his Afro-Desia sessions! As with that album, the material is produced by Sonny Lester – and the tracks are also long, and filled with really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hymn
Philips, 1962. Very Good+
One of the cookinest albums we've ever heard from pianist Lou Levy – an obscure early 60s trio session that shows a whole new side of his sound! Lou's playing with likely suspects Max Bennett on bass and Stan Levy on drums – but unlike some of his west coast sides of the late 50s, this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philips (Japan), 1978. Near Mint-
A warm solo piano tribute to Duke Ellington – kind of a nice "back atcha" effort from Dollar Brand, given that Duke was one of his big champions in the early years of his career! The style here is quite far from Ellingtons, even though Brand plays a few of Duke's compositions ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lifeline
Philips (UK), 1973. Very Good+
Pretty great jazzy work from Johnny Dankworth – one of the hipper Brit bandleaders of the 60s, working here in a sweet 70s mode that reminds us of some of the larger MPS projects of the same time. The tracks have a bit of an electric glow in the basswork and production, but the main focus is ... LP, Vinyl record album
