Ray Brown/Milt Jackson

LP (Item 28287) Verve, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good

A really hip record from the team of bassist Ray Brown and vibist Milt Jackson – a swinging large group record that has them fronting arrangements from Oliver Nelson and Jimmy Heath! Nelson and Heath are both mighty hip cats at this point in their career – and bring a soulful swing to the record that really takes off – a groove that's lively, but tuned with lots of cool colors and tones too – shifting effortlessly while things move forward – but always with the right soulful appeal for older fans of both leaders. Milt's especially great in this setting – even more on fire than some of his other collaborations with Brown – and titles include "Dew & Mud", "Lined With A Groove", "Lazy Theme", "In A Crowd", and "Now Hear My Meaning".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(MGM stereo pressing. Cover has light wear. Vinyl has a small mark that clicks during "Lined With A Groove" but plays fine otherwise.)

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.

Herbie Mann

Sound Of Mann
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+
Herbie hits some nice Afro-Cuban grooves, with backing by Latin percussionists like Ray Barretto, Ray Mantilla, Jose Mangual, and Patato Valdez. The set's a lively one, in the manner of his Flautista album, with some tracks that are a bit longer than usual, with a nice heavy groove. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Golson

Tune In, Turn On
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+
You know, in these days of vintage pop songs used ad nauseum in every commercial, it's easy to forget that at one time, loads of great music was written just for advertising! This great album was cut at the height of the Madison Avenue Music Industry – and it features Benny Golson leading a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

Goin Out Of My Head
Verve, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Wes Montgomery's grooviest albums on Verve – a set that features his smooth chromatic work on guitar set to lively arrangements from Oliver Nelson!

Verve, 1959. Near Mint-
Cole Porter's tunes are great enough on their own, but Oscar really opens them up on this set – picking up the inherent rhythms in the numbers and really working them over – in a way that makes the outing one of the most lively in Peterson's songbook series for Verve! Oscar's fluid ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington & Johnny Hodges

Blues Summit (Side By Side/Back To Back)
Verve, 1959. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A great little album that builds on the strength of Johnny Hodges' small group 50s sessions for Verve – and which lets Duke Ellington in on some of the action! The format is nicely stripped-down throughout – featuring Hodges in sextet and septet formation with players that include Ben ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lester Young

Lester Swings
Verve, 1945/1950/1951. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Lester Young definitely swings here – on material from a number of different Verve albums of the early 50s – with work from Nat King Cole on piano and Buddy Rich on drums on one session – plus more work from either Hank Jones or John Lewis on piano, and Buddy Rich and Jo Jones on ...

Verve, 1960. Near Mint- Gatefold
A sweet little large group session from Gerry – a bit harder swinging than some of his mid 50s small group work, but still with that mellifluous glide that's the trademark Mulligan sound!

World Pacific, 1957. Near Mint-
Beautifully modernist material from the great Brookmeyer – performing here with a well-suited group that features Jimmy Giuffre and Jim Hall, plus the great Dave Bailey on drums.

Jenkins, Jordan, & Timmons
New Jazz, 1957. Near Mint-
About as hip as you can get for a hardbop session – a real cooker from the left end of the spectrum, filled with great work from all three players in the title!
