Settlin' In

LP (Item 2825) Riverside, 1961 — Condition: Very Good

One of a few rare 60s albums from pianist Dick Morgan – a player from the Washington DC scene who didn't make it onto record that much back in the day! Joe Benjamin plays bass and Ben Riley plays drums, and the set includes a good mix of Morgan originals like "Bash!" and "Settlin' In", plus other jazz and pop standards like "Serenata" and "Work Song". Soulful, but with a bit of a lyrical, light-handed touch that keeps things moving freshly along.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono blue label Bill Grauer Productions pressing with microphone logo. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Work Song" and "I'll Take Romance". Cover has a split top seam, a 3 inch split in the bottom seam, and DJ Copy stamps on back.)

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.

Riverside, 1959. Very Good-
One of the greatest Cannonball Adderley albums from the Riverside years – a completely smoking live date recorded in San Francisco, often with long tracks that really let the group open up and do their thing! The lineup here is that classic one that first grabbed attention – the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Evans

How My Heart Sings
Riverside, 1962. Very Good-
Magical music from the very first note – the kind of record you need to hear if you've ever doubted the genius of Bill Evans! The sound here is subtle, and supple – but still often more revolutionary than that of the countless albums it inspired in years to come – and Evans is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1959. Near Mint-
Wes Montgomery's first album as a leader – a relatively obscure set that has him playing in a trio with Indianapolis bandmates Mel Rhyne on organ and Paul Parker on drums – a mode that strongly recalls Montgomery's roots in the Indy scene at the time! If you only know the later, famous ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Them Dirty Blues
Riverside, 1960. Very Good
One of the all-time great ones by Cannonball! This record captures him in the prime of his early soul jazz fame – working with an unbelievably heavy quintet that featured Bobby Timmons on piano (with Barry Harris sitting in on a few tracks), Sam Jones on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1964. Near Mint-
"Dynamic" is right – as Rod's one of the hippest large group arrangers of his time! The album's a really wonderful record that features Rod leading an octet with a distinctly modern touch – almost building off the styles of Kenton groups of the 50s, but with more of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A&M, 1978. Very Good
The Dude at the height of his powers – serving up a smooth blend of soul and jazz that set the standard for an entire generation! As with some of his other 70s albums, Quincy's working here with a host of great talents that make the record sizzle – guests that include Hubert Laws, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Louis Armstrong

Ambassador Satch
Columbia, 1955. Very Good
Ambassador Satch is a key statement of Armstrong's global power in the postwar years, a time when the State Department was using his talents to mend fences and open doors after WWII. The material is Armstrong at his best comeback stretch – and most of these recall the classic sound of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Morgan

Sidewinder
Blue Note, 1964. Very Good-
A jazz classic if there ever was one – and the best-selling album ever by Lee Morgan, thanks to the use of the title track in a car commercial! Sure, you've probably heard "The Sidewinder" enough that you think you know the album already – but the rest of the tunes really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clarence Wheeler

New Chicago Blues
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
No blues at all – despite the title – and a great set of tracks that showcases the southside Chicago tenor roots of Clarence Wheeler! The album's a bit different than the first two Wheeler albums for Atlantic – in that the group's slightly bigger, and more 70s electric overall ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Brasswind
Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Gene Ammons gets the Cannonball Adderley treatment – as he blows funky solos over an album arranged and conducted by David Axelrod! Brasswind has a larger, fuller funky sound than some of his earlier work for Prestige – and it works very well! The overall sound's a bit smoother, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clef, 1952. Very Good-
Dizzy and strings – a surprisingly great combination! Although it was Charlie Parker who first made famous the modernist "jazz with strings" approach, Dizzy does wonderfully here in the format – working in similar fashion with edgey backing from the "Operatic String ... LP, Vinyl record album

Our Night Together

A hip group led by reedman Marty Krystall, who also sings a bit – with work by Gene Cipriano on tenor, Jerry Peters on Hammond, Buell Neidlinger on bass, and Peter Erskine on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
