Something To Listen To

LP (Item 3144) Blue Note, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

An obscure little album by Jimmy – a real lost session that kind of fell between his Blue Note and Solid State years. The set's got Jimmy grooving in 2 different modes – one a more traditional soul jazz organ style, similar to other 60s work, but almost tighter; the other a freer, almost more modal groove, and quite different than his funkier work of the same time. Our favorite cut on here is the stellar "Deb Sambo", which has a nice Braziliany groove, and a good dancefloor groove. Other cuts include "Malcolm's Blues" and "Something To Listen To".

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Topkapi
Sue, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A very unusual album for Jimmy – but a great one too! The set breaks the mode of Jimmy's small combo Sue work and features his organ amidst some larger arrangements from Fred Norman – a blend of skipping strings and jazzy rhythms that really lets Jimmy open up and groove around the top ...

Electric Funk
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
One of Jimmy's funkiest albums ever – a sweeeeet batch of short, hard, and funky cuts – and a record that ranks right up there with the mighty Soul Sugar for sheer funkiness! Jimmy takes an upbeat and easygoing approach to the late 60s funk sound, with a nice, rubbery bass and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Veep, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A rare issue of some material that Jimmy cut for Sue – but issued here in the mid 60s by the United Artists subsidiary Veep, after Jimmy was cut for the label! The tracks are all originals, save for two cuts – and Jimmy's in very fine form, pumping out some hard heavy hammond grooves ... LP, Vinyl record album

I've Got A New Woman
Solid State, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great hard-wailing set from Jimmy McGriff – one that reproduces the searing soulful sound of his Sue Records work, but with a late 60s vibe! Titles include "Kiko", "All About My Girl", "Swingin' Shepherd Blues", "What's That" – and a nice cover ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stump Juice
Groove Merchant, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold
Massively funky – and one of Jimmy McGriff's best albums for the Groove Merchant label! The album's follows strongly on the mode of Jimmy's classic Worm album – also produced by Sonny Lester, issued slightly before on the Solid State label. The set's got that stripped-down, hard-n-funk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Natural Illusions
Blue Note, 1972. Very Good+
Vibes and orchestrations – a combination that makes for one of the coolest Bobby Hutcherson albums of the 70s – a really magical set that expands the sound of Bobby's work in ways we wouldn't have expected! The style is similar to that used with Grant Green and Lou Donaldson at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Asante
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good-
A wonderful record from McCoy Tyner – and a great reminder that some of his best post-Coltrane work was done for the Blue Note label – which was where Tyner seemed to hit the right sort of spiritual vibe to live up to his Impulse Records legacy! This album's got plenty of long, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Free Form
Blue Note, 1961. Very Good
A landmark album for Donald Byrd – one that marks a key departure in his sound! Donald's really opening up on this one – picking up more of the soulful and the spiritual side of jazz, and moving from the hardbop and modern jazz of his late 50s years – no surprise, since he's ...

Blue Note, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
An incredible album from Lee Morgan – one of his last records ever, and a set that shows a whole new promise in his music – one that was sadly unfulfilled as a result of his tragic early death. The songs hare are all quite long – stretched out live numbers, but never in a way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Easy Walker
Blue Note, 1966. Very Good+
An album of subtle genius and stellar soul from the great Stanley Turrentine – an over looked quartet date that plays with the sharper edge of some of his earlier work for Blue Note, but which also shows the growing sense of color and tone he'd picked up during the 60s! The group here is ... LP, Vinyl record album
