Bash!

LP (Item 31442) Jazz Line, 1961 — Condition: Near Mint-

Rare material from Dave Bailey – a set that's filled with fire, soul, and imagination – recorded as part of the drummer's amazing (and amazingly short) early 60s run as a leader! The date smokes with the same sort of energy as Dave's great "Gutter" albums for Epic – a groove that's part Blue Note, part Prestige, and carried off with so much precision, we wonder why Bailey never recorded more as a leader. Players are all wonderful – Kenny Dorham's on trumpet, Curtis Fuller's on trombone, Frank Haynes is on tenor, and Tommy Flanagan's on piano. Ben Tucker provides excellent basswork, and proves that him and Bailey were one of the best hardbop rhythm teams ever! Cuts include "Grand Street", "Osmosis", "Soul Support", and "An Oscar For Oscar".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Brian Auger's Oblivion Express

Reinforcements
RCA, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great later sleeper from Brian Auger – a record that's much deeper and more soulful than some of his earlier work – and done in a soaring style that's really great! Alex Lighterwood sings as much as Auger plays the keys here, but that's ok with us – because he fuses his voice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vee Jay, Mid 60s. Very Good
Great jazz version of Mancini's famous score, played by Eddie Harris and his killer Chicago group from the old days. There's a great bunch of tracks here besides the hit "Moon River" – like "Sally's Tomato", "Mr. Yunioshi", "Latin Golightly", and " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walter Norris & George Mraz

Drifting
Enja, 1974. Near Mint-
The title's an appropriate one – as the record drifts a bit lazily from track to track. The energy never really picks up, and but it's got a nice laid back, spacious approach, settling comfortably into its destiny as a set of piano/bass duets. Titles include "Space Maker", "No ...

Chico Hamilton

El Exigente
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
Great work from a fantastic period of drummer Chico Hamilton – a time when he'd moved way past the chamber jazz of his 50s years, and even some of his more freewheeling 60s modes on Impulse Records! Here, Chico seems really obsessed with rhythm – to a level where he's not afraid to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jan Akkerman

Profile
Sire, 1972. Near Mint-
Very heavy stuff from guitarist Jan Akkerman – almost more rock than jazz, with a hard-on jamming style that was the heaviest the European scene had to offer at the time! Some tracks have a bit of funky rhythm, but the real focus here is on the guitar – not only the jamming electric, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Salvation, 1975. Near Mint-
A great set by one of the more obscure groups to record for the CTI/Motown subsidiary Salvation – a great quartet that features Frank Wess on soprano sax and flute, Roland Hanna on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Ben Riley on drums. The group play in a mode that really pushes past that of ... LP, Vinyl record album
EmArcy, Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A nice little 2LP set that compiles all the work that Ben Webster did for Emarcy in the early 50s – including one sextet session with Benny Carter and Gerald Wiggins, dates done with the Johnny Richards Orchestra, the Marshall Royal Quintet, Johnny Otis, Jay McShann, Dinah Washington, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1955. Near Mint-
Pretty incredible work from Lennie Niehaus – one of his seminal albums for Contemporary – nearly all of which were as poorly titled as this one, but equally worth checking out! This side has Lennie grooving on alto – blowing in a tighter, harder style than most west coasters ... LP, Vinyl record album

New York Neophonic Orchestra

Jazz In Concert
Sandcastle, Late 70s. Near Mint-
A New York group led by Joel Kaye – featuring a full trumpet section, plus other horns, hip reeds, guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "Eurydice", "Royal Flush", "Xochiquetzal", and "Fata Morgana". LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Primitiva
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
One of Martin Denny's greatest albums – thanks to some extra special added elements! For the record, Denny's classic quartet is augmented by a wealth of odd added percussion – including gongs, cymbals, tuned logs, steel drums, chimes, and "chromatic bamboo"! All of these ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Wonder

In Square Circle
Tamla, 1985. Very Good Gatefold
Mid 80s, and while never that bad (nothing Stevie does is ever terrible – well, except for "Don't Drive Drunk"!), the record lacks that certain greatness that you'll find on even the lesser Stevie Wonder albums. Titles include "Stranger On The Shore Of Love", "Spiritu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker T & The MGs

Hip Hug-Her
Stax, 1967. Very Good-
Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, ... LP, Vinyl record album
