Stepping Into Tomorrow

LP (Item 3055) Blue Note, 1975 — Condition: Very Good+

An essential bit of jazz funk from Donald Byrd and Larry Mizell! The groove's very similar to their classic Places & Spaces LP, and the record's got loads of cool spacey tracks with hot funky trumpet from Donald, and cool waves of synth and sound from Larry. The title cut's a great groover, and other nice ones include "Think Twice" (sampled by Main Source for "Lookin' At the Front Door"), "I Love The Girl", and "You Are The World". Great great great stuff!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cut corner, some surface wear, and a an unglued bottom seam.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Donald Byrd

Donald Byrd's Best
Blue Note, Early 70s/1975. Very Good
A tasty collection of goodies that Donald recorded with the great Larry Mizell during the early 70s. Certainly not his all-inclusive best, but some of our favorite material by this legendary soul jazz trumpeter. The tracks have a sparkling electric jazz funk sound, with amazing production that ...

Hank Mobley

Peckin' Time
Blue Note, 1958. Near Mint-
One of the first great pairings of Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan – a trumpet/tenor team that was always a treasure, no matter what the setting! This one's a pretty open-ended blowing date – one that gives both horn players plenty of room to stretch out, in a setting that's filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1957. Near Mint-
We put the catalog number in the title of this one because it seemed that Blue Note was putting out too many title-less Hank Mobley albums during the late 50s. Who cares, though? This album's a great batch of hardbop tracks that show Mobley at his finest, and which hardly need a title to hang ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Patton

Let 'Em Roll
Blue Note, 1965. Sealed
A wonderfully wicked meeting of the minds – and a legendary bit of soul jazz from organist Big John Patton! The core of the record features the usual Patton groove – with John on Hammond, Grant Green on guitar, and Otis Finch on drums – but added to that mix is Bobby Hutcherson ... LP, Vinyl record album

Horace Silver

Silver 'N Voices
Blue Note, 1977. Very Good
A beautiful, beautiful record from Horace Silver – one of his great 70s experiments for Blue Note – and a set that has him working in the same "jazz with voices" mode explored by Max Roach and Donald Byrd in earlier years! The core of the set is focused around the great work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1955/1959. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
This is the great Blue Note two-fer from the 70's that combines two rare Cecil Taylor albums from the 50's – one recorded for the Transition label, one for United Artists. First up is Jazz Advance – one of the best pre-1960 sessions by Cecil Taylor, recorded in Boston in 1956, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, Late 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1961. Very Good
One of the few live recordings ever done by Horace Silver during his Blue Note years – a real surprise, considering what a crowd pleaser he was at the time! The set catches Horace working with that great quintet that graced most of his best early Blue Notes – with Blue Mitchell on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Williams

Civilization
Blue Note, 1986. Very Good
Features Tony Williams on drums, Wallace Roney on trumpet, Billy Pierce on soprano and tenor sax, Mulgrew Miller on piano, and Charnett Moffett on bass! LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...

Cal Tjader

Best Of Cal Tjader
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Cal cut so many great sides for Verve during the 60s, it's hard to imagine how anyone could come up with a "best of" – but this album fits the bill nicely, and includes a number of solid groover and Latin jazz tracks that fit just right! Includes "Sake & Greens", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tab Smith

Keeping Tab
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good
Very nice set of moody mellow late-nite tracks from Chicago tenorist Tab Smith. Although Smith played for years in bands such as those of Basie and Lucky Millinder, this is one of the few records he ever cut under his own name. The session's got Smith fronting solos with uncredited backing by a ... LP, Vinyl record album
