Silent Partner – Original Soundtrack

LP (Item 29594) Pablo, 1979 — Condition: Sealed
An obscure jazzy soundtrack by Oscar Peterson, and one of his nicest albums from the late 70s! The record moves past the usual Peterson trio format – and includes extra horn players like Benny Carter, Zoot Sims, and Clark Terry, as well as the vibes of Milt Jackson. All this makes for a nicer than usual set of original jazzy tracks, many with a strident groove that's very different than Peterson's other work from the time. Titles include "Theme For Celine", "Party Time USA", "Theme For Susannah", "Elliot", and "Blues For Chris".  © 1996-2024, 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.

Recital By Oscar Peterson
Clef, 1952/1954. Near Mint-
A great early example of the genius of mixing guitar with the piano of Oscar Peterson – a move that might have been inspired by the success of Ahmad Jamal, but which works equally well for Peterson's sound on the keys! The tracks here feature either Herb Ellis or Irving Ashby on guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Early 50s. Near Mint-
An unusual Verve album from Oscar Peterson, and one that really lives up to its title! There's no drummer on the album at all – just bass from either Ray Brown or Major Holley – which leaves plenty of space for Oscar's work on the keys of the piano, opening up warmly with a really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1955. Near Mint-
Count Basie taken down a few notches – not in quality, but in terms of the size of the group – as Oscar really opens up some of the Count's standards in a whole new way, by playing them with a stripped-down quartet that features Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on ...

Girl Talk
MPS (Germany), Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Mellow magic from Oscar Peterson – recorded for MPS during the mid 60s, but "secret sessions" that didn't get issued until later!

Oscar Peterson

Motions & Emotions
MPS, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
Pure genius from Oscar Peterson – one of his finest moments ever! The record is very different than most of Oscar's over-recorded trio format ones – and features Claus Ogerman crafting some impeccable backings of lofty strings and compressed horns, creating a pillow of air that takes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson & Harry Edison

Oscar Peterson & Harry Edison
Pablo, 1974. Near Mint-
Oscar Peterson and Harry Edison – two giants from the Verve Records scene of the 50s, reunited here in a wonderfully stripped-down setting!

John Coltrane

Afro Blue Impressions
Pablo, Early 60s/1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the best posthumous releases by the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – and a set that really captures the group at a perfect moment – when they were really beginning to stretch out a lot, yet still in a style that was mostly inside! The material was recorded in Berlin and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Innocent Years
Pablo, 1982. Near Mint-
Zoot Sims on tenor and soprano saxophones, Richard Wyands on piano, Frank Tate on bass and Akira Tana on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

Virtuoso
Pablo, 1973. Very Good+
Solo guitar by Joe Pass – a beautiful little album that's a perfect showcase for the new sensitivity in his music during his years at Pablo records!

Pablo, 1954. Near Mint-
Unusual trio material – with Benny Carter on alto and Louis Bellson on drums! LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington

Intimate Ellington
Pablo, Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint-
A really well-titled set – as it offers up some more intimate takes on the Duke Ellington sound of the cusp of the 70s – with some especially nice trio and solo numbers that are well worth the price of the whole collection! The album starts with the amazing "Moon Maiden" ... LP, Vinyl record album
