Blues For Tomorrow

LP (Item 32191) Riverside, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Kind of a hodge-podge from different sessions – but a nice little record, and one that's come to stand on its own over the years, thanks to the strength of the work! The album's a set of previously unissued tunes from Riverside sessions of the late 50s - material from classic dates that didn't make it onto the albums, but which is every bit as good! Titles include many classics – like Sonny Rollins and Sonny Clark playing "Funky Hotel Blues", plus "Blues For Tomorrow" by a septet that included Coleman Hawkins, Coltrane, Gigi Gryce, and Ray Copeland, which was lifted from a Monk session (without Monk!) Also includes "A Sad Thing" by Herbie Mann's Californians and "Let's Blow Some Blues" by Mundell Lowe Quintet.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(OJC pressing with obi.)

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.

Nat Adderley

Much Brass
Riverside, 1959. Very Good-
Despite the "much brass" tag in the title, this album's really just a sextet session – and not a clunky big brass ensemble one. Cannonball's brother plays with a very swingin' sextet that includes the brassy touches of Slide Hampton on trombone and Laymon Jackson on tuba. Wynton ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Jones

Chant
Riverside, 1961. Very Good
Early genius from Sam Jones – the kind of record that showed the world that he was way more than just a bass player – even though he was pretty darn great at that! At the time of the set, Sam was already raising plenty of ears with his work in the Cannonball Adderley group, an outfit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barry Harris

Newer Than New
Riverside, 1961. Very Good
An excellent early session from Barry Harris – one of his rarest, and a group side that features playing by two young bright stars, fellow Detroiter Charles McPherson on alto, and the talented Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet! The session's got a lot of lyrical flourishes, but the horn players also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1961. Very Good
Early work by Dave Pike – one of his first albums ever, recorded with an all-star lineup that includes Barry Harris on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. Pike's got less of the groovy and fuzzed-out sound of his later work – but even at this young age, he's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1955. Very Good
An early full length album by Randy Weston – one that mostly features tunes by other composers, all given a slightly modern twist at the piano! The style here isn't as arch-modern or African-inspired as some of Weston's other 50s work – but it's still plenty darn great, and very much ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clifford Jordan

Soul Fountain
Vortex, 1966. Near Mint-
A very unusual album from Clifford Jordan – a session of shorter soul jazz numbers cut in the years between his earlier hardbop albums and his later, more righteous sounds of the 70s! The style here is straightforward and to the point – very much in the Atlantic soul jazz style of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Om
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s! The 1965 recording was one of Trane's most adventurous so far – as it featured just one album-length track, building up out of relatively free expressions from Coltrane in the studio ...

Visions Of A New World
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
Lonnie Liston Smith is really tightening up his groove on this one – bringing a bit more funk into the mix, and creating that amazingly sweet glide in his keyboard sound! The record's still steeped in the righteous influences of years past, but it brings the message out to a bigger audience ... LP, Vinyl record album
