Jeremy & The Satyrs

LP (Item 28298) Reprise, 1968 — Condition: Sealed

One of the first albums ever from ultra-cool flute man Jeremy Steig – a jazz album at its core, but one with some rock and folk elements as well! The instrumentation is heavy on Steig's funky flute – already blown here with that breathy quality that would come out even more strongly on later records – although the instrumentation here is somewhat fuller than on Jeremy's straight jazz records – given the presence of Warren Bernhardt on keyboards and Adrian Guillery on guitar and harmonica. The great Eddie Gomez is the bassist for the outing – and brings in some of his best bottom-bumping moments – although again, the interplay with Steig isn't as stark as on later records. And although there's a bit of vocals on the record – sung by Bernhardt and Guillery – they've got a raspy appeal that shows that Jeremy was trying to reach out towards other audiences before going straight jazz. Some tracks are instrumentals, though, with an even heavier focus on flute – and titles include "Mean Black Snake", "In The World Of Glass Teardrops", "Satyrized", "Let's Go To The Movie Show", "Lovely Child Of Tears", "Foreign Release", "Lovely Child Of Tears", and "The Do It".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Shorty Rogers

Jazz Waltz
Reprise, 1961. Sealed
Don't think "waltz music", think "modal jazz" – because the version of jazz waltz that Shorty Rogers serves up here is a great precursor to the great grooves to come on the European scene – especially the work from the artists at MPS Records! Tunes all have this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shorty Rogers

Bossa Nova
Reprise, 1962. Very Good+
A real standout from the great Shorty Rogers – and a smoking set that has him turning his many talents towards the world of bossa nova! By the time of this set, Shorty was as great an arranger as he was a trumpeter – really one of the go-to guys around LA for hipper soundtracks and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie

This Time By Basie!
Reprise, 1963. Very Good
We totally dig Basie's work from the mid 60s! He was working with Quincy Jones at the time – and Quince laid down some very soulful arrangements that used the best jazz elements of the Basie group to turn out some great pop instrumental tracks with a very groovy sound. This album's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Patterson

Soul Happening!
Prestige, 1967. Very Good+
Groovy trio set, with a organ/guitar/drums lineup playing through a batch of soul hits like "Uptight" and "Wade in the Water", plus "Wee Dot", and a few pop hits. More groovy organ lines from Patterson, who's the main star here, and a surprisingly nice version of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+
Totally totally cool LP that has this groovy group playing with Oliver Nelson – who plays soprano on most tracks. The sound is very groovy, and very Now Sound, with a female vocal duet, and mod swingin' jazzy lyrics. The LP's got a nice version of "My Favorite Things", a cool ... LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Shepp

Attica Blues
Impulse, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
A classic of spiritual, soulful jazz – and one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums!

LP, Vinyl record album

Willis Jackson

Blue Gator
Prestige, 1959. Very Good+
A massive early Prestige set from tenorist Willis Jackson – and just the kind of record that set him firmly in the soul jazz camp for the 60s! By the time of the set, Jackson had already won plenty of fame for his R&B-tinged work – but here, he stretches out a bit more, and really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, Early 50s. Very Good+
Brilliant early work by Miles Davis – some of his first truly important sessions to appear under his own name, recorded with players that include Jimmy Heath, JJ Johnson, Gil Coggins, Art Blakey, Kenny Clarke, Jackie McLean, and Oscar Pettiford. Tunes are shorter, and perhaps more boppish, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Patterson

Boss Men
Prestige, 1966. Very Good+
Nice cooker from Don, featuring a trio with Sonny Stitt on alto and Billy James on drums. The groove is that nice open-ended gutbucket style that Patterson was bringing to his Prestige sides of the time. There's rootsy soul jazz, but also a bit more freewheelingness than you'd expect – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
An album so heavy, it blew plenty of minds when first released at the end of the 60s! This set's the first-ever utterance from the King Crimson empire – the initial outing of the group, which featured Greg Lake on vocals, and lots of airy, darkly atmospheric guitar from the legendary Robert ...

Steve Miller Band

Sailor
Capitol, 1968. Very Good+
A classic set that really helps put the Steve Miller sound on the map – a wonderful blend of tightness and easy going energy that makes the group one of the greatest things going from San Francisco at the time! Some tunes have this burning quality that's completely sublime – while ... LP, Vinyl record album
