This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
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.
The first of two famous live recordings made by tenorist Stan Getz at the Lighthouse in California – with accompaniment from Bob Cooper on tenor, Jimmy Giuffre on baritone, Teddy Charles on vibes, and Russ Freeman on piano! LP, Vinyl record album
The title's not a typo, but a strong reference to the influence of Lester Young on the tenor sound of Stan Getz – especially in these early recordings! The material is right from the end of the 40s – and shows a young Stan really coming into his own on Prestige Records – blowing ... LP, Vinyl record album
A beautiful bit of lost Getz from the 60s – a record of incredible depth that's somehow gotten lost in the shuffle of time! The album has Stan playing at Tanglewood with a core group that includes Gary Burton, Jim Hall, Steve Swallow, and Roy Haynes, plus musical backings by the Boston Pops ... LP, Vinyl record album
Incredible electric work from Stan Getz – one of his few sessions of this type from the 70s, and a doozy! The album follows heavily on the heels of Getz's brilliant Captain Marvel set – mixing together electric rhythms and some wonderfully open-minded blowing, in a sound that shows ... LP, Vinyl record album
A wicked album that's one of Stan Getz's best from the 70s! The record features Stan reunited with Chick Corea, whose warm lyricism was the lynchpin in Getz's landmark Sweet Rain – the stunning session from 1968 that is perhaps our favorite-ever Getz album. Corea plays electric piano here, ... LP, Vinyl record album
An incredibly haunting session that has Stan's edgey alto fronting some of Russ Garcia's arch-modernist string arrangements – similar to those that he contributed to other Verve albums of the same style. Getz maintains a wonderfully breathy tone that floats above the orchestrations, and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
About as classic as you can get for Ben Webster on Verve Records – a nicely mature, nicely laidback session that really captures the energy promised in the title! The sidemen are all in an easygoing, soulful mode – Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dizzy's in Greece, looking very cool in a fez on the cover – and really wailing hard with a larger group that includes Billy Mitchell, Charlie Persip, Lee Morgan, Wynton Kelly, and Phil Woods! The mode here is still quite boppish, despite the larger size of the ensemble – but Dizzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Count Basie taken down a few notches – not in quality, but in terms of the size of the group – as Oscar really opens up some of the Count's standards in a whole new way, by playing them with a stripped-down quartet that features Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on ... LP, Vinyl record album
70s issue of a pair of 1961 sessions – with Johnny Hodges on alto, working alongside sidemen from the Ellington orchestra! Billy Strayhorn handles arrangements, and titles include "Azure", "Day Dream", "I Didn't Know About You", "I'm Just A Lucky So & ... LP, Vinyl record album
A key example of the popularity of the Oscar Peterson Trio in the mid 60s – an album of tracks that listeners wanted to hear done in the group's familiar style! The tunes are simple ones, mostly standards and 60s covers – but they're done by Oscar, Ray Brown, and Ed Thigpen in a mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
Small group material from Lester Youn sessions of the 50s for Verve – with additional solo work from Harry Edison on trumpet, Oscar Peterson and Hank Jones on piano, and Barney Kessel and Herb Ellis on guitar! LP, Vinyl record album
