Dance Of The Infidels (aka Jazz At Hotchkiss)

LP (Item 27621) Savoy, 1957 — Condition: Near Mint-

A rare quintet session from George Wallington – and a smoking little record we'd rate right up there with his other non-trio sides of the 50s! The set's done in that hard-edge Savoy mode of the time – relaxed and open, with lots of dark elements in the rhythms – and beautifully blown solos over the top from Donald Byrd on trumpet and Phil Woods on alto, plus plenty of piano from George! Knobby Totah handles bass and Nick Stabulas handles drums – and titles include "Dance of the Infidels", "Ow", "Before Dawn", and "Strange Music".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s pressing.)

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.

George Wallington

Knight Music
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good+
Great work from bop legend George Wallington – one of the last records in an initial run of 50s strengths from the pianist – and a set that features some great original compositions of his own! The set's a bit unusual for Atlantic Records at the time – almost more of a Prestige ... LP, Vinyl record album

Signals
Savoy/Signal, Mid 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
An interesting record that collects the output of the rare Savoy subsidiary Signal. The label released recordings in the Music Minus One vein, but used the then new stereo technology to separate out the soloist, and always featured top flight soloists and rhythm sections. For this reissue the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Savoy, 1955. Near Mint-
One of the best-known 50s jazz sessions from the Savoy label – a laidback classic that's a great illustration of the label's shift in modes after the early bop years! The setting here is relatively informal – with Milt Jackson as the ersatz leader, working almost in blowing session ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey

Mirage
Savoy, 1957. Very Good+
During the late 50s – after an initial burst of recordings with Blue Note, and before a later successful run for the label – Art Blakey recorded on a number of labels with a lesser-known version of The Jazz Messengers. This album's from that stretch – and it's actually a pretty ... LP, Vinyl record album
Savoy, Late 40s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
An excellent set that brings together Fats Navarro's recordings for Savoy – late 40s sides that were always poorly packaged and annotated on record, which are compiled here wonderfully, with great notes, and a few unissued tracks! Players include Leo Parker, Kenny Dorham, Sonny Stitt, Ernie ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Parker

One Night In Chicago
Savoy, 1950. Near Mint-
Quite possibly our favorite Charlie Parker album ever – and not just because we're from Chicago! The material is actually from a really great live set done in the Windy City in 1950 – one that's rougher and rawer than a lot of his studio sides, and which shows the incredible energy ...

Coleman Hawkins

Hawk Returns
Savoy, 1954. Near Mint-
Classic Coleman Hawkins work for Savoy – featuring Hawk blowing in a number of small group settings. We're not really sure where he "returns" from on this one – but the playing is great, and tracks include "Flight Eleven", "Should I", "Modern ... LP, Vinyl record album
Savoy, Late 40s. Very Good
Magical early work from Erroll Garner – a 10" LP featuring sides done for Savoy Records, all in that wonderfully evocative, wonderfully fluid Garner style! There's a bit less rhythmic force here than on some of Erroll's more famous work in the 50s, and most tunes have a very gentle, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette Coleman

Tomorrow Is the Question!
Contemporary, 1959. Sealed
Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied! The sound here is kind of a rougher take on the mode that would gel more strongly on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Wild electric work from Les McCann – an album of free, open sounds that's quite a change from his styles of the 60s – and from most of his other work of the 70s too! Side one features an extended 26 minute track titled "The Lovers" – a slow-building number that has Les ... LP, Vinyl record album
