Eastward Ho! – Harold Land In New York

LP (Item 26813) Jazzland, 1960 — Condition: Very Good

A great record – and easily one of Harold Land's best! The session brings Land in from the west coast, and records him in New York with his regular rhythm combo that included the great Amos Trice on piano, Clarence Jones on bass, and Joe Peters on drums. But, added to that quartet is the wonderful Kenny Dorham on trumpet – blowing with a sweetly soulful sound that really opens up the groove – and which sounds wonderful next to Land's raspy edge on the tenor! The tracks are all quite long, and the overall approach is nice and hard, with some mighty fierce solos by Land and Dorham. Titles include "Okay Blues", "So In Love", "Slowly", and "Triple Trouble".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label stereo Bill Grauer Productions Inc pressing with deep groove. Co;ver has a large light stain at the bottom right corner, some seam splitting, and a name written twice in pen on back.)

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.

Johnny Lytle

Nice & Easy
Jazzland, 1962. Very Good+
An unusual record for vibist Johnny Lytle – one that has him breaking from his usual trio formation, to work in a super-tight lineup that includes some soul jazz heavyweights! The sound's quite different than Lytle's usual mix of organ and vibes, but still pretty darn great – thanks to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good-
A killer set of grooves from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – one of the first and one of the few to ever combine vibes with Hammond organ – in this case, the work of Milt Harris on the keys! The group is a very rhythmic trio, thanks to Harris on the bass pedals, and Penny Hinant on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Griffin

Little Giant
Riverside, 1959. Near Mint-
One of Johnny Griffin's hard blowing LPs as a leader for Jazzland – recorded with a crack lineup that includes Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, Wynton Kelly on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Albert Heath on drums! This is the kind of work that the term "hard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Hancock

Treasure Chest
Warner, 1974. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Seminal sides from Herbie Hancock – amazing material recorded for Warner Brothers in the years between his time at Blue Note and his big fame at Columbia Records – all sides that definitely show Hancock as one mighty righteous cat! Herbie's really stretching past his more conventional ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Mariano

Reflections (Catalyst)
Catalyst, 1974/1977. Near Mint-
A great set of fusion tunes – recorded by American saxophonist Charlie Mariano, in the company of a very hip Finnish ensemble! This 1974 gem features some of Charlie's best work of the decade – freewheeling, but never too out, and with none of the rock flourishes that sometimes mar his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1969. Near Mint-
One of the most beautiful albums that Charlie Haden ever recorded – and if he only ever appeared on one record in his life, we'd still love him tremendously for this one! The album has a feel that's very much in keeping with both the "liberation" and "orchestra" in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz/Eddie Sauter

Mickey One – Original Soundtrack
MGM, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
An excellent one from Getz – recorded here as the lead soloist over backings composed by Eddie Sauter, designed to accompany the film Mickey One, an early directorial effort from Arthur Penn (and starring Warren Beatty as well!) The score has a very edgey quality to it, and Getz's playing is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marilyn Crispell

Live In Berlin
Black Saint (Italy), 1984. Near Mint-
Firey piano work from Marilyn Crispell – playing here in a very open-ended live setting that really lets her stretch out on the keyboard! The group's a quartet, with Billy Bang on violin, Peter Kowald on bass, and John Bestch on drums – but it's clear that Crispell's creative energy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phyllis Hyman

Living All Alone
Philadelphia International, 1986. Very Good+
Sparkling modern soul from the lovely Phyllis Hyman – and an album that has the singer picking up the wonderfully smooth groove that had become the Philly International sound of the mid 80s. This format works surprisingly well for Phyllis – quite possibly more so than it did even for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Asha Puthli

L'Indiana
Dash, 1978. Near Mint-
The only album ever issued in the US by European soul singer Asha Pulthi – an artist who was doing some great spacey funk in the mid 70s, then made a strong shift into tighter grooves in the disco years! This album's a great blend of Asha's earlier vocal style and some of the newer clubby ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jean Knight

Mr Big Stuff
Stax, 1970. Near Mint-
Jean Knight's classic – and a monumental album of funky female soul that was one of the best albums in the "second generation" Stax era! You probably know the title cut, as it was her biggest hit, and the inspiration for loads of "answer" songs (some of which came from ... LP, Vinyl record album
