Milt Jackson In A New Setting

LP (Item 29849) Limelight, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

A great one from vibist Milt Jackson – one of the treasures from that 60s stretch when he split with the Modern Jazz Quartet, and recorded some of his most soulful material ever! Milt's definitely in a new setting here – playing with a good little soul jazz combo that includes Jimmy Heath on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, and Bob Cranshaw on bass. The overall sound is much tighter than Milt's earlier work – with a focus on groovy short cuts that have a nice vibes/piano/tenor sound. Titles include "Clay's Blues", "Slow Death", "Ineffable", "That's In", and "Project S".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Savoy, 1955. Good+
One of the best-known 50s jazz sessions from the Savoy label – a laidback classic that's a great illustration of the label's shift in modes after the early bop years!

Milt Jackson

Soul Route
Pablo, 1983. Near Mint-
A set that definitely moves along the Soul Route promised in the title – thanks to great vibes from Milt Jackson, and a mix of electric and acoustic piano from Gene Harris! Harris here has none of the hoke of some of his Concord sides – and instead, slides in alongside Jackson to give ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz Skyline
Savoy, Mid 50s. Very Good+
A great little set from Milt Jackson – not just for his work on vibes, but also for some great tenor from Lucky Thompson! Thompson's raspy edge brings a nice degree of soulfulness to the set – a sound that adds depth to the sometimes mellower moments set down by Jackson and the rhythm ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson

Milt Jackson Quartet
Prestige, 1955. Very Good-
A slightly different take on the Modern Jazz Quartet sound of the early years – as the album features Milt Jackson's vibes in the company of MJQ bandmates Percy Heath and Connie Kay, but also includes Horace Silver on piano – in the spot normally reserved for John Lewis! The presence ... LP, Vinyl record album
Limelight, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the hippest Milt Jackson albums of the 60s – a set that definitely lives up to its Museum Of Modern Art setting! The performance is one of the most famous from that museum's well-remembered series of 60s jazz concerts – and it features Milt Jackson's quintet really stretching ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson

Goodbye
CTI, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sweet 70s electric work from the great vibist Milt Jackson – a record that has him hitting some nicely moody modes, and in a spacious style that's almost a 70s remake of the energy of the Modern Jazz Quartet! Cedar Walton plays piano and Fender Rhodes – and Hubert Laws is in the group ... LP, Vinyl record album
Limelight, 1965. Very Good
Yipes! What a bitter title – especially when you consider that Gerry actually added a piano to the group for this session, and that he's playing versions of 60s pop hits like "King Of The Road", "Downtown", "Mr Tambourine Man", "Hard Day's Night", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Limelight, 1960. Very Good+ Gatefold
An unusual chapter in the label-hopping career of Charles Mingus – a one-off date recorded for Mercury right after Mingus' legendary sessions for Columbia! The format here may well be Mingus' most ambitious to date – as the album features larger groups than before, exploring a range of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

New Continent
Limelight, 1962. Very Good Gatefold
A wickedly great album from Dizzy Gillespie – one of his most striking sessions of the early 60s, and a perfect blend of his Latin and modern modes! The album features an extended suite – composed and arranged by Lalo Schifrin, who'd just begun working with Dizzy at the time, and who ... LP, Vinyl record album
World Pacific, Late 60s. Near Mint-
This album's got a very telling title – as Joe's guitar is working here with bigger arrangements by Bob Florence, backings that go for a mod 60s sound! Florence uses a range of instrumentation on the set, plus some occasional vocal choruses, all in a mode that's got some very nice mid 60s LA ... LP, Vinyl record album

Budd Johnson

Ya Ya (Argo)
Argo, 1964. Very Good+
One of the most soulful sessions ever cut by tenorist Budd Johnson – recorded with a cool combo that features Al Williams on some smoking Hammond – plus bass and drums. Lots of tracks are originals – and titles include the jazz dance groover "Ya Ya" – plus "Ex ... LP, Vinyl record album
