Dizzy Gillespie — New Wave ... CD 14.99

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". (Mono pressing with deep groove.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

Cornucopia
Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
A pretty groovy record – very different than lots of Dizzy's other work! The set has Dizzy as the main soloist in front of large arrangements by Don Sebesky – sweeping and soulful, in a real CTI style, especially when the label was coming out through A&M. Tunes are mostly a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gateway, Early 70s. Very Good+
A fantastic bit of late 60's funk, and a surprisingly slammin' record from Dizzy! The album was clearly recorded at the same time as Dizzy's classic Soul & Salvation session – as it's got the same funky feel as that record, one that stands as one of our all time favorite albums by Diz. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, Early 50s. Good
A really obscure album for Diz – making a rare appearance here on Atlantic Records! The LP features short tracks in a very playful boppish mode – typical of the populist Diz of the early 50s, of whom we have no complaints! Titles include "Just Blues", "Moon ... LP, Vinyl record album
Allegro, Early 50s. 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
Verve, 1961. Very Good
While actually not as electrifying as some of Dizzy's other albums from the time, this one's still pretty darn great, and features his great group with Leo Wright on alto and Lalo Schfrin on piano. The band grooves with a subtly Latinish vibe, and the tracks are nice and long long long. Titles ... 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
Atlantic, 1950. Good+
Beautiful early material by Erroll Garner – sides recorded at the start of the 50s, when he was really hitting his rhythmic stride! The tunes bristle with an approach to the material that's filled with life – as Garner seems to sense a rhythm where there might not necessarily be one ... LP, Vinyl record album
