Venezuela Joropo

LP (Item 2515) Pacific Jazz, 1967 — Condition: Very Good+
Fantastic record, and perhaps the best thing that Victor Feldman ever did. He takes his vibes and marimba – which are normally very snoozy in a jazz context – and gives them a nice Now Sound twist, with a cool studio South American feel. He plays with some great LA studio players – like Dennis Budimir, Bill Perkins, and Emil Richards – in a nice small combo that works well throughout. Great stuff, including nice versions of "Pavane", "Frenesi", and "Summer Island".  © 1996-2023, 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.

Capitol, 1958. Near Mint-
Beautiful music for the blue at heart – and the kind of record that really helps get us through a late night after a big breakup!

Jean Jacques Perrey

Moog Indigo
Vanguard, 1970. Near Mint-
An incredible record of funky moogy grooves – possibly one of the best of the genre! Jean Jacques Perry really outdid himself on this record – going past the simple cut ups of his work with Gershon Kingsley, and hitting a style that was more groovy, and more song oriented. The best ... LP, Vinyl record album
Command, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before! Dick turns out to be a wonderful talent on the moog – very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie Gleason

Music To Change Her Mind
Capitol, 1956. Near Mint-
The album's one of Jackie Gleason's finest – and a perfect demonstration of the lush, romantic backings that he did so well for Capitol during the decade – an approach that was very much in direct contrast to Gleason's pyrotechnic personality in TV comedies, but which was a surprisingly ...

Killing Me Softly
United Artists, 1973. Very Good
A set that's heavy on strings, but still has some of the nice punch you'd find in the best Ferrante & Teicher albums of the 70s – done in conjunction with producer George Butler, but still with some traces of the old days too! The piano is mostly acoustic, and arrangements often have ... LP, Vinyl record album

Home Cookin'
SOUL, 1968. Near Mint-
Heavy duty instrumentals from this legendary Detroit tenor giant! This album's one of Jr's best – recorded with a rawer tone than later work, almost a mixture of funky 45 and R&B grooving. Motown favorites like "Come See About Me" and "What Does It Take To Win Your ... LP, Vinyl record album

A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s!
