Hooter

LP (Item 2571) Riverside, 1960 — Condition: Very Good+

One of the few albums by this hip modern jazz combo from the UK – a quintet with a twin horn lineup that plays the tenor of Vic Ash against the baritone of Harry Klein – maybe west west coast inspirations, but a harder swing overall! The res tof the group features Brian Dee on piano, Malcolm Cecil on bass, and either Bill Eyden or Tony Mann on drums – on titles that include "There It Is", "The Five Of Us", and "Still Life".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label pressing, with silver text, microphone logo, and deep groove! Vinyl has a very short click in one spot, but is great overall. Cover has a small bit of pen and tape in one corner, but is nice too.)

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.

James Clay & David Fathead Newman

Sound Of The Wide Open Spaces
Riverside, 1960. Very Good
Texas tenors locked in hard formation! The set's a wonderfully stripped-down set that has James Clay and David Fathead Newman playing head-to-head in a rootsy Texas tenor style jazz session – one that's a bit more open-ended and earthy than some of the faker tones on Newman's early work for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coleman Hawkins

Hawk Flies High
Riverside, 1957. Near Mint-
A key album in the reintroduction of Coleman Hawkins in the late 50s – recorded in a style that still bears a lot of traces of earlier years, but at a time when Hawk was being claimed as a key influence by a variety of younger modernists! The set's got a sense of freedom that's really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fats Navarro

Good Bait
Riverside, Early 50s. Very Good+
Late 60s issue of some material that was recorded early in the producing career of Orrin Keepnews – and which features trumpeter Fats Navarro in the company of a hip group of boppers – a lineup that includes Allan Eager on tenor, Tadd Dameron on piano, Curley Russell on bass, and Kenny ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1963. Very Good+
One of Art Blakey's best non-Blue Note albums of the 60s – a hard-wailing live set that fully exploits the best talents of the six-piece version of the Jazz Messengers! The group here is that tremendous sextet that featured Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Wayne Shorter ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

Sound Of Sonny
Riverside, 1957. Very Good
A landmark album from Sonny Rollins – a record that really lives up to its title, as it shows the maturing tenorist really finding his own voice in jazz – a sound that's unlike any other! Rollins' Riverside work sometimes seems to get overlooked sometimes in light of his freer late 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Portrait Of Cannonball
Riverside, 1958. Near Mint-
A jazzy portrait of Cannonball Adderley in his early soul jazz prime – oddly one that doesn't feature his regular quintet lineup, but which more than makes up for that lack with a batch of players that includes Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Bill Evans on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Philly Joe ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Unique Thelonious Monk
Riverside, 1956. Very Good
The session's billed as "very personal treatments of great standards" – and it's a great twist on familiar material, all given the Thelonius touch! There's less of Monk's creative composition and angular group arrangements going on here – and instead, the album's almost a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1959. Very Good-
A unique large group effort from Thelonious Monk – but one that bristles with all the angular energy of his other great work for Riverside! The group here is a tentet – filled with excellent players who include Donald Byrd, Phil Woods, Pepper Adams, Eddie Bert, Robert Northern, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Things Are Getting Better
Riverside, 1958. Very Good-
An album that definitely lives up to its title – given the great change and evolution in the style of Cannonball Adderley's music – definitely pointed towards the soul jazz fame to come in the 60s! The group here has Adderley's alto in the company of some all-stars who may not be his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff

Prelude
Prestige, 1964. Very Good
Soul jazz organ with big band? It's been done – and never better than on this set – which features Brother Jack's classic quartet – with George Benson, Red Hollway, and Joe Dukes – next to the the screamin' orchestrations of a hip Benny Golson! Golson leads a crack band ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gabor Szabo

Spellbinder
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
Breezy brilliance from the legendary Gabor Szabo – and one of the grooviest albums the Hungarian guitarist recorded during the 60s! The set's almost a tightening up of the style that Szabo first brought to prominence in his work with Chico Hamilton – a sound that's got roots in gypsy ... LP, Vinyl record album
