A killer session from Horace's famous quintet that included Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook, Gene Taylor, and Louis Hayes – one of the group's earliest recordings for Blue Note – and also one of their best! The band had a unique mix of rootsy soul jazz playing and more exotic approaches to arranging, playing in a way that manages to bring jazz funk mind, even at this early of a point – along with more meditative compositions with incredible lyrical beauty. The album includes tracks that mix both of these styles – and titles include the title track, "Baghdad Blues", "Melancholy Mood", "Sister Sadie", "Break City", "St. Vitus Dance", and the lovely "Peace". (63rd street mono pressing with deep groove, RVG stamp and "ear." Cover has some wear and aging.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.

Blue Note, Late 50s. Sealed
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

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!

Three Moods
Limelight, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A pretty great little record that has the Three Sounds usual piano trio sound backed by some larger arrangements – mostly floating strings that soar along and take the group into a whole sound! The addition of the arrangements really breaks things up from the standard soul jazz trio format ... LP, Vinyl record album
