In The Pocket

LP (Item 27165) Fantasy, 1975 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
Originally: 9.99
Although this should be a "sell out" album for Stan – because it's got his tenor set amidst some sweeping larger arrangements – it's actually still a pretty dope little LP, and one that shows Turrentine's capacity for hitting a nice groove in kind of a soundtrack-y funk vein. The record features keyboards by Gene Page, who also arranged the whole thing – and it's also got a little bit of background vocals by Edna Wright and Jim Gilstrap. A nice batch of sophisticated easy tunes from Stan the Man – and with the cuts "In The Pocket", "Naked As The Day I Was Born", "Spaced", and "Black Lassie".  © 1996-2022, 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.

Phoenix10, 1970/1981. Very Good+
A lost bit of Stanley Turrentine funky work – recorded between his years at Blue Note and his time at CTI, and nearly lost to the pages of history! Despite the obscurity, though, the album's a great one – done with these short stomping sort of arrangements that remind us a lot of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pieces Of Dreams
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
A 70s soulful classic from the mighty Stanley Turrentine! Stan's not the bad "Mister T" on this set – he's more in a smooth, mellow mode – blowing over some nice soulful arrangements by Gene Page, ones that take the CTI funk approach, add in some strings, and create a bit of ...

Another Story
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good+
One of the last great acoustic sessions before Stanley Turrentine's big electric run of the 70s – a laidback, open-ended session that really paves the way for the energy of his records on CTI – even though none of the players is plugging in at all! The tracks are all nice and long, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hustlin'
Blue Note, 1964. Near Mint-
One of Stanley Turrentine's few organ-based sessions for Blue Note – recorded in the company of his wife Shirley Scott, a real cooker on the Hammond who holds it down masterfully here – and great band that's filled out by Kenny Burrell on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass and Otis Finch on ...

Joyride
Blue Note, 1965. Near Mint-
A very successful album for Blue Note – and one that took the searing tenor sax of Stanley Turrentine and backed it with some boldly soulful arrangements from Oliver Nelson! Nelson was perfect at this sort of session – able to provide full backings that infused the record with energy, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Evans

Tokyo Concert
Fantasy, 1973. Very Good+
A great live date from Bill Evans – one of his essential sides of the 70s, even if you've already got a bunch of other Evans live material! We know what you're thinking: "Do I have this one? Seems to be a lot of tunes here that I've got on other Evans recordings." But take it ... LP, Vinyl record album

McCoy Tyner

Greeting
Fantasy/Milestone, 1978. Very Good+
A strong live set from the end of the 70s – one that shows the culmination of McCoy Tyner's work within larger concept settings, a format that he'd been exploring thoroughly since the passing of his old leader, John Coltrane. The ensemble here is quite strong – with George Adams and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Higgins

Bridgework
Fantasy, 1987. Near Mint-
A great date with tenor sax from James Clay and Harold Land – plus sublime piano from Cedar Walton! Titles include "Deception", "Evidence", "Bridgework", "Old Folks", "The Theme", and "Plexus". LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, Early 50s. Very Good
Pretty nice stuff from Brubeck's early years! The record features the work of his octet – a group that gives a rare opportunity to hear Brubeck in a large group setting, and one that also features work by Cal Tjader on drums (!), plus Dick Collins and Paul Desmond on their usual instruments. ...

Cal Tjader

Guarabe
Fantasy, 1977. Very Good
Moody mellow vibes from the great Cal Tjader – recording here with some excellent work on electric piano from Clare Fischer! Fischer didn't always use electric keys on records like this – and his presence here really makes the set sparkle – giving it an extra added Latin current ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazz Workshop/Fantasy, 1964. Very Good+
Great live work by Mingus – recorded around the same vintage as his Town Hall Concert, or as some of his sublime European recordings from the 1964 tour. The group is late and hip – with Charles McPherson as the "saxophonist of tomorrow", plus Jaki Byard on piano, Lonnie ... LP, Vinyl record album
