What's New

LP (Item 26941) Roulette, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Stitt hits the Varitone for Roulette, and while his work isn't as funky as that of Eddie Harris or Lou Donaldson, the instrument lets him get in a nice raw tone, with a good honest edge that comes through despite backing by a largeish group. Other players include Ernie Hayes on organ, Walter Perkins on drums, and JJ Johnson on trombone – and the set includes short tracks like "Round Midnight", "Beastly Blues", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "Morgan's Song".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Sonny Stitt

Sonny Stitt
Argo, 1958. Very Good+
A record with a simple, elegant title – and a similar cover image too – but if you know Sonny Stitt, you know there's often plenty beneath the surface, and this classic Chess Records has plenty to offer, once you start listening! The album's right up there with Sonny's work for Roost ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie

Basie At Birdland
Roulette, 1961. Near Mint-
A killer set from Count Basie – recorded during the height of his years at Roulette! The back cover of the record proclaims that "Basie Is Back Home" – clearly a bit by Birdland to lay claim to being the Count's home address, which is a bit of a challenge to his KC roots! ...

Maynard Ferguson

Maynard '61
Roulette, 1961. Near Mint-
Incredible work from Maynard Ferguson – the kind of record that will blow you away, and make you forget all the cliches you've ever had about him!

Art Blakey

Gypsy Folk Tales
Roulette, 1977. Very Good+
An explosive moment of greatness from the legendary Art Blakey – a record that takes off immediately, thanks to help from a young lineup that features Bobby Watson on alto, Valery Ponomarev on trumpet, and Dave Schnitter on tenor – three talents who would go onto become jazz legends in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roulette, 1960/1962. Near Mint- 2LP Ga tefold
A Basie 2-fer! First up is Kanas City Suite – a great little set – despite our initial fears! We'll admit that we're the first ones to shy away from anything that says "Kansas City" in the title – as we expect a lot of hoke – but this album's a surprisingly great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Doggett

Honky Tonk A-La Mod!
Roulette, 1966. Very Good+
The soulful Hammond of Bill Doggett gets a sweet shift for the 60s – hitting a mod jazz mode that Bill no doubt inspired by his groundbreaking work of the 50s! The groove here is nicely snapping – in a space between soul instrumental work and jazz, with lots of tight guitar from Billy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roulette, 1958. Very Good+
Incredibly hip big band work from trumpeter Herb Pomeroy – proof that the Boston influence in the 50s was a very good force in modern jazz! The group here is large, but the sound is often quite lean – done with an open focus on the strongest soloists in the group – players who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard

Echoes Of Blue
Atlantic, Late 60s/1976. Near Mint-
A great collection of Freddie's late 60s recordings for Atlantic – some of the best tracks pulled from the albums Backlash and High Blues Pressure! The groups on the albums are great – slightly larger than usual, but with wonderful players who make the most of the setting, coming ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Luiz Bonfa

Jazz Samba Encore!
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
Hardly an "encore" of the first Stan Getz Jazz Samba album – as this set's got a slightly different feel, and lots of great elements that make it really unique! This time around, Brazilian musician Luiz Bonfa is on guitar – already a skilled proponent of the bossa by the time ... LP, Vinyl record album
CBS/Sony (Japan), 1965/1976. Near Mint-
This stunning live set has been hailed by many as one of the finest moments of Miles' mid 60s career – music played with a frenetic energy that even blows away the famous studio sessions of the time! The group here is a landmark lineup – young modernists Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Lloyd

Dream Weaver
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint-
A classic set from reedman Charles Lloyd – a set that really pushes forward all the experiments he'd begun in the Chico Hamilton group – and shows a bold move forward for rhythms in 60s jazz! The tracks are long, and spiral out wonderfully – but in ways that are different than ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clarke Boland Big Band

At Her Majesty's Pleasure
Black Lion, 1969. Near Mint-
One of the greatest long-form albums from the Clarke Boland Big Band – a sophisticated suite that not only shows off the writing ability of Francy Boland, but also demonstrates the group's ability to swing like a mofo, even when things are serious! The album's a jazz suite written by Boland, ... LP, Vinyl record album
