Push Push

LP (Item 28192) Embryo, 1971 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold
One of Herbie Mann's biggest albums – and one of his funkiest too! The cover's a bit of an off-putter – although it probably helped sell the record, back in the day – but the grooves are as rock-solid as anything that Herbie cut at the time – tight, focused, and a perfect showcase for his soulful work on flute! Tracks have a groove that's somewhat relaxed – almost a shift from the soul jazz vibe of Mann's earlier Atlantic work into some of the freer modes that were showing up in the CTI generation – and the players on the date include both Duane Allman and Cornell Dupree on guitars, Richard Tee on keyboards, Chuck Rainey on bass, Ralph MacDonald on percussion, and Bernard Purdie on drums – a player whose work here is definitely a key part of the sound! All tracks are long and slinky funky – and titles include "Push Push", "Spirit In The Dark", "What's Going On", "What'd I Say", and "Never Can Say Goodbye".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In the die-cut gatefold cover, with some edge wear and torn bits at the die-cut.)

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.

Herbie Mann

Reggae
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint-
A surprisingly strong mix of 70s modes happening here – as the funky flute of Herbie Mann takes on some of the nascent reggae grooves of the time – with results that are a lot nicer than you might expect! There's some core rhythms on the record from Tommy McCook, but Herbie's regular ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint-
Different work than usual for Herbie – a series of sides recorded in Sweden in the late 50s, featuring Herbie on both flute and tenor! The feel here is at once more poised and more open than some of Herbie's US sides from the time – as the groups shift from track to track, and Herbie's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1965. Near Mint-
A surprisingly great album from Herbie Mann – especially considering that it's based around a Broadway score! The set goes way beyond the source of the tunes, though – and Herbie's combo makes some great groovy magic out of the music – often with some sweet Latin touches, as you'd ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann

Right Now
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+
LP...$9.99 14.99
Another great groover from Herbie's Latin days! The band has a very unusual modal sound, with Herbie's flute next to vibes by Hagood Hardy, guitar by Billy Bean, and percussion by Willie Bobo & Patato Valdes. Includes a nice version of "O Barquino", plus the cuts "Cool ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1962. Near Mint-
Herbie Mann's at the Village Gate – really wailing away in a set of extended numbers that not only set a whole new standard for live recording in jazz, but which also pushed forward the role of the flute in the music as well! There's a heck of a lot of soul in the grooves here – served ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Haden, Jan Garbarek, & Egberto Gismonti

Magico
ECM, 1980. Near Mint-
Moody atmospherics from the second wave of ECM – a spacious trio outing that features Charlie Haden on bass, Jan Garbarek on saxophones, and Egberto Gismonti on guitars and piano. With any other group of players, the setting might be a bit too spare and relaxed for our ears, but Gismonti ... LP, Vinyl record album

Human Arts Ensemble

Under The Sun (Arista Freedom)
Arista Freedom, 1973. Near Mint-
Chicago had the Art Ensemble of Chicago at the end of the 60s – and St Louis had the fantastic Human Arts Ensemble at the start of the 70s – a wonderfully creative jazz group who shared a lot of the same ideas of improvisation and artistic freedom as the AACM up in the Windy City! This ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge Dalto

Rendez-Vous
EMI/Cheetah, 1983/1988. Near Mint-
Warm and mellow keyboards from the great Jorge Dalto – an obscure Japanese set from the early 80s, but one that has all the spacious grooves of his US classic from the 70s! Jorge plays a range of acoustic and electric keys here – mostly in a small group setting that features guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Haden/Jan Garbarek/Egberto Gismonti

Folk Songs
ECM, 1981. Near Mint-
A trio date, with Garbarek on tenor and soprano sax, Charlie Haden on bass, and Egberto Gismonti on guitars and piano. LP, Vinyl record album

Tom Buckner/Gerald Oshita/Roscoe Mitchell

New Music For Woodwinds & Voice
Arch, 1981. Near Mint-
A jazz set, but one that also marks some of the first steps into more "serious" settings for Roscoe Mitchell – who plays bass sax, tenor, and e flat soprano clarinet here. Gerald Oshita plays baritone, Conn-o-sax, and Sarussophone – and Tom Buckner provides voice. LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Zawinul

Dialects
Columbia/Legacy, 1986. Near Mint-
Music for solo synthesizers and voices, all composed and performed by Zawinul, with guest vocalist Bobby McFerrin, and ensemble that includes Carl Anderson, Dee Dee Bellson, and Alfie Silas. LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

Dizzy In Greece
Verve, 1956. Very Good
Dizzy's in Greece, looking very cool in a fez on the cover – and really wailing hard with a larger group that includes Billy Mitchell, Charlie Persip, Lee Morgan, Wynton Kelly, and Phil Woods! The mode here is still quite boppish, despite the larger size of the ensemble – but Dizzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
