Instrumental Classics

LP (Item 27271) Capitol, Late 40s — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 18.99
Nice Capitol album from the 50s, one that compiles instrumental sides by Nat King Cole and his tight little LA combo that forever changed the face of jazz and R&B. It's nice to hear Nat only on piano here – and backing by the great Oscar Moore on guitar is really a treat! Titles include "Rhumba Azul", "Prelude In C Sharp Minor", "Laugh! Cool Clown", "This Way Out", "Bop Kick", and "Easy Listenin' Blues".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Japanese pressing, with obi – ECJ 50057)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Miles Davis

Birth Of The Cool
Capitol, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint-
Legendary early work from trumpeter Miles Davis – late 40s sessions for Capitol Records that are completely different than the bop material he was cutting with Charlie Parker and on his own!

Stan Kenton

Cuban Fire
Capitol, 1956. Very Good
One of Kenton's greatest records, and the one in which he proves his dedication to Latin styles, by serving up a killer batch of Afro-Cuban tracks with an incredibly authentic feel.

Coleman Hawkins

Gilded Hawk
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Tremendous work from Coleman Hawkins – a sublime "with strings" session from the 50s, and one of Bean's greatest albums from the decade! The setting is quite different than other sets with Hawk on tenor – soft strings from Glen Osser, cascading beautifully and gently – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Domination
Capitol, 1965. Very Good+
A key meeting of Cannonball Adderley and David Axelrod – and one of the pair's first larger collaborations together!

Cannonball Adderley Quintet

Happy People
Capitol, 1972. Very Good
A really unique little album from Cannonball's all-great late years at Capitol – a session that features some strong influences from Brazilian music – "The Happy People" – and production from the legendary David Axelrod! The mix makes for a really unique little record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley with Sergio Mendes

Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars
Capitol/Pickwick, 1962. Very Good+
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Stan Kenton Presents
Capitol, 1950. Near Mint-
Excellent early Stan Kenton – and a perfect album to pick if you're looking for a great example of the way he blended modernist jazz with more traditional swing based forms. The album's a showcase of rich shimmering colors, played by Kenton and the orchestra to perfection, and highlighting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

74 Miles Away/Walk Tall
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
A stone classic from Cannonball Adderley – and a pivotal set that has him continuing the live recording setting of some of his best 60s albums, while also stretching forward to some of the more inventive ideas of the latter part of the decade! David Axelrod produced, and the album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Hancock

Man-Child
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+
Funky mid 70s Herbie Hancock – one his funkiest albums of the era! Herbie plays a host of cool keyboards – like Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – and he's joined by a group that includes just about all of the Headhunters – including Paul Jackson on bass and Mike Clarke on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette Coleman

Body Meta
Artists House, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
Heavy duty stuff, and one of Ornette's best LPs from the 70's. Recorded in 1976, this is a perfect demonstration of the harmelodic style, with the whole group jaunting along in tight choppy bits. James Blood Ulmer's on guitar, and the sound is very dark and deep. Tracks include "Voice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arista Freedom, 1964/1975. Very Good+
A seminal early moment from the legendary Albert Ayler – an important session recorded overseas in Copenhagen – where enthusiasm for Ayler's music caught fire more strongly than in the US! The group's got an edge that's maybe even sharper than some of Ayler's ESP material, but no less ... LP, Vinyl record album
