Evening At The Pump Room

LP (Item 26470) Mercury, 1958 — Condition: Very Good
Although the big New York hotels had their share of great Latin pianists, Chicago had it's own great one during the 50s – in the person of the little-known David Le Winter, a supremely talented pianist who seems to have only cut this one album for Mercury during the 50s. The record itself is hidden in a schmaltzy cover with notes about The Pump Room, Le Winter's home territory – but the music is incredible, and has a flowing Latiny groove played mostly by Le Winter's piano and backing by bass and bongo, and which falls in the same class as similar work by Noro Morales or Geri Galman. Titles include "Rhumba Rhapsody", "Malguena", "Cumana", "Autumn Leaves", and "Hand To Mouth Boogie".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover is nice.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.
