A killer session from Horace's famous quintet that included Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook, Gene Taylor, and Louis Hayes – and one of the group's earliest recordings for Blue Note. The band had a unique mix of rootsy soul jazz playing and more exotic approaches to arranging, and they managed to play both early funk tracks and more thoughtful compositions with incredible lyrical beauty. The album includes tracks that mix both of these styles – like "Sister Sadie", "Break City", "St. Vitus Dance", and the lovely "Peace". (63rd street mono pressing with deep groove, RVG stamp and ear. Cover has light staining and a name in pen on the back.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.

Stylings Of Silver
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good-
A great Horace Silver album – and one of the rarest! The record features some top-line material that virtually defines Silver's post-Jazz Messengers sound – tracks that come out with a hard and heavy groove, yet which also have a lightness in the mix too – a sense of play and ...

Blue Note, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
Super-hip stuff from Horace – the third part of his United States Of Mind series, and a great electric-tinged set that features vocals by Andy and Salome Bey! The tracks are slightly funky, very soulful, and a real departure from Horace stock 60s Blue Note riffs. Harold Vick plays tenor, ... LP, Vinyl record album

6 Pieces Of Silver
Blue Note, Late 50s. Very Good-
The lyrical genius at his best! Horace plays with a tight quintet that includes Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Doug Watkins, and Louis Hayes. Hayes is particularly great, and his warm drumming brings Silver's playing into a new range that still keeps a lot of his bop roots, but which also allows more ... LP, Vinyl record album

On Broadway
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good+
Hammond hero Reuben Wilson's on Broadway – and he hits a massively soulful groove that's light years from the cliched sounds of the great white way! The set's one of the tightest cookers from Wilson's early years on Blue Note – and has a vibe that's a bit different than the rest, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Late 50s. Very Good-
Forget the "pretty" in the title here – as this stuff's not glossy or fancy – just wonderfully stripped-down Hammond work from Jimmy, performed with a trio that includes Eddie McFadden on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums. The title should probably read "mellow" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mr Shing-A-Ling
Blue Note, 1967. Very Good+
Funky funky Lou Donaldson – and one of the first albums to feature the tight drum work of Idris Muhammad behind Lou's horn – so early, in fact, that Muhammad's listed here on the label as Leo Morris, which was his original name! The group also features Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Jimmy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Original 10" LP featuring the second set of historic duets between Brazilian guitarist Almeida and the great LA alto player Bud Shank.
