George Russell Sextet featuring Don Ellis & Eric Dolphy

LP (Item 32642) Riverside/ABC, Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

A late 60s issue of material from some of Russell's earlier albums on Riverside – great sides from the early 60s featuring Russell at the head of a group of some of the better young modernists of the age, like Ellis, Dolphy, Pete La Roca, and Steve Swallow. The record features Russell-conceived versions of "Round Midnight", "Au Prive", and "Nardis" – as well as the originals "Thoughts" and "Blues In Orbit".  © 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.

RCA, 1957. Very Good
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe!

Verve, 1960. Very Good
An nice lost session by modernist George Russell – recorded in New York in 1960, with one of his more obscure groups of the time. The set was originally recorded for the Decca label, as one of Russell's few LPs for the imprint – and like the others, it's got a fresh, unacademic tone ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Dutchman, 1970. Very Good+
George Russell's stepping quite far out from his earlier work here – recording in Scandinavia in the late 60s, with some very trippy effects! The album is dominated by the two-part "Othello Ballet Suite" – recorded in Stockholm in 1967 with a group that includes Rolf ... LP, Vinyl record album

Outer View
Riverside, 1962. Very Good
George Russell was always committed to exploring new territory – as he proves well on this hard to find album cut for Riverside during the early 60s! Russell's surrounded himself here with some great younger and lesser-known players – including trumpeter Don Ellis, trombonist Garnett ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ezz-Thetic (RCA)
RCA, 1956. Very Good- Gatefold
French reissue of a nice little set from Russell – not to be confused with the Riverside LP with a similar title. Not as arch-modern as some of his later work, with strong playing in kind of that east coast chamber jazz mode that you'd find in some of the other RCA sides of the time. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dancing Sunbeam
ABC/Impulse, Mid 50s/1975. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Really standout material from Lucky – an excellent set collecting small group sessions recorded for Paramount in the mid 50s, featuring Oscar Pettiford on bass! The format's a bit like the small combo mode that Americans from larger touring ensembles were recording in Europe – a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside/Offbeat, 1956. Very Good
Less of a jazz effort than some of Lowe's other albums of the time – with a focus on the compositional work of Alec Wilder, featuring 12 new tunes written specially for the album, jazzy, but also with some more expansive soundtrack touches. Players include Lowe, Joe Wilder, Don Hammond, Milt ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1959. Very Good
One of a handful of late 50s albums that Chet Baker recorded for Riverside – all of which are some of his last great 50s work in the studio, before a shift in the 60s to a wider-ranging approach to his music! The style here is definitely in the "classic" Baker mode set down for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, Early 60s. Sealed
A pretty darn important album for Wes – as it was his first session with the sort of larger arrangements that would later make him huge! Although Montgomery was mostly recording for Riverside in small combos, this session has him playing in front of larger backings by Jimmy Jones – not ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spring Fever
Riverside, 1961. Very Good+
These guys are the Mangione Brothers – but don't hold that against them! This album's a great one – with a young Gap and Chuck, joined by Sal Nistico on tenor – all of them playing in an edgey, almost modern mode that's very different than any of their later work. The set opens ... LP, Vinyl record album
