Sounds Unheard Of!

LP (Item 28199) Contemporary, 1962 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

A very cool album that has Shelly Manne and Jack Marshall going nuts on a bunch of percussion, drums, and other odd instruments! Marshall mostly plays spare acoustic guitar, with some very nutty changes – and Manne proves that he's a very adept percussionist way past his usual west coast drumming style. Not the first album the pair cut together, but maybe the best, and with lots of nice cuts like "Poinciana", "By Myself", "Temptation", and "Night & Day".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Heavy black label stereo pressing with deep groove.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Contemporary, 1977. Near Mint-
A rather late recording for Pepper, but a great one played with some fierceness that you might not expect from the date of the recording. It helps that he's accompanied by a remarkable rhythm section of George Cables, George Mraz and Elvin Jones, all seasoned vets by this point, and playing with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Smith

Folk Jazz
Contemporary, 1959. Near Mint-
One of the few sides ever cut as a leader by west coast clarinetist Bill Smith – and a pretty groovy session that has the group performing jazz versions of folk tunes, a gimmick that was used briefly around the same time by players that included Harold Land and Benny Bailey. The quartet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good
A key early entry in the "jazz meets Broadway" genre – and a record that was so successful, it went onto inspire countless imitations! Shelly Manne's working here in a lightly playful trio setting – alongside Andre Previn on piano and Leroy Vinnegar on bass, in a reading of ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Cables

Phantom Of The City
Contemporary, 1985. Very Good+
With John Heard on bass and Tony Williams on drums – on titles that include "Phantom Of The City", "But He Knows", "Dark Side/Light Side", and "Blue Nights". LP, Vinyl record album
World Pacific, 1962. Very Good+
A very different take on this score than the vocal one – thanks to great work from Victor Feldman on both piano and vibes – in a hip trio with Bob Whitlock on bass, and the great LA drummer Lawrence Marable – who really keeps things great at the bottom! Titles include "Typica ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerald Wilson Orchestra

Golden Sword
Pacific Jazz, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Latiny tracks from Gerald Wilson – but done with his usual tight LA soul jazz groove! Wilson swings, as always, and leads a band of LA players with a fabulous mix of styles. The set's got Harold Land, Anthony Ortega, Laurindo Almeida, Roy Ayers, Teddy Edwards, and Jimmy Woods – to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Blue Note 2-fer that brings together some of Gil Evans' great modernist jazz pieces for the World Pacific label. The material was all recorded in New York in 1958 and 1959, and the groups include crack jazz players like Steve Lacy, Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderley, Johnn Coles, Elvin Jones, and ...

Rolf Kuhn Group featuring Phil Woods

Day After
MPS (Germany), 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the best Rolf Kuhn sessions we can think of – and a classic MPS album that mixes spiritual avant garde jazz with unusual rhythmic progressions and world percussion. Rolf's group here features Phil Woods guesting on alto, a great companion for Rolf's fluid clarinet lines, which sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great lost chapter in the Cannonball/David Axelrod story! The record features Cannon's classic quintet performing some longer, more serious works with orchestral backing – and the sound is vaguely similar to some of Axelrod's "high concept" work for Capitol. The record features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Strozier

Remember Me
Steeplechase/Inner City, 1977. Very Good+
A gem of a record – the kind of overlooked 70s session we really treasure! Reed player Frank Strozier was one of the all-time under-discovered greats – and this set reunites him with his old Memphis partner/MJT+3 bandmate, Harold Mabern – a perfect pairing for Strozier's warm and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Ellis

Soaring
MPS, 1973. Near Mint-
A well-titled album from trumpeter Don Ellis – as the set soars to the skies from the very first note! The album's got a dynamic energy that almost beats Don's American work of the time – lots of funky rhythms, and a cool MPS groove that shows the label's strong 70s legacy of larger ...

Art Van Damme & The Singers Unlimited

Invitation
MPS, 1974. Near Mint-
One of the coolest albums ever cut by the Singers Unlimited – thanks to great instrumentation from the mighty Art Van Damme! Art plays accordion – in a way that works perfectly with the banks of sound and sweetness we love from the group – an instrument whose own breathy tones ... LP, Vinyl record album
