Let's Cook!

LP (Item 33344) Contemporary, 1957 — Condition: Very Good

Well, if you've ever heard Barney play guitar, you know that he doesn't always cook – or at least not as hotly as other players – but this album is a nice batch of tracks that goes way beyond Kessel's usual uptight sound. Most of the cuts are very long, and they feature open-ended jam session playing by 2 groups – one with Victor Feldman, Hamp Hawes, and Leroy Vinnegar; the other with Ben Webster, Frank Rosolino, and Jimmie Rowles. Titles include "Jersey Bounce", "Let's Cook", and "Just In Time".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has split seams and some surface wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • 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.

Cables' Vision

We'd sure like to have Cables' Vision – because by the end of the 70s, he was one of the hippest cats on the California scene!

Contemporary, 1954. Near Mint-
Tremendous work from Howard Rumsey's early Lighthouse group – and a great example of why they were such a great act at the time! The "solo spotlight" in the title is extremely apt here – as each of the album's tracks features a standout performance by group members who emerge ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good
A beautiful set from Art – stripped-down and elegant, cut right at that time when his tone on trumpet was evolving into something sublime. The group's a perfect one for Farmer at this point – Hank Jones, Addison Farmer, and Roy Haynes, all lyrically-minded players with just the right ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hampton Hawes

All Night Session Vol 2
Contemporary, 1956. Near Mint-
A noteworthy session from pianist Hampton Hawes – a rare quartet session from the 50s (at a time when Hawes was mostly working in trios) – and also a three volume set of releases, all recorded in the space of a single night! The album is truly an All Night Session – as the ... LP, Vinyl record album

A strong 80s live date – Bud Shank on alto, with Dave Peck on piano, Chuck Deardorf on bass, and Jeff Hamilton on drums! LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good+
Curtis Counce is one of the few bassists who made a great leader too, and we've always sought out the albums under his name – and this collection of rare 50s material is excellent!

Phineas Newborn

Newborn Touch
Contemporary, 1964. Very Good+
The Newborn Touch is always a great one, but it sounds especially nice on this record – a set that seems to go even farther than any of Phineas' earlier trio sessions! There's an almost-ambitious sound to the record that we really like a lot – one that possibly comes from Newborn's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good+
A key early entry in the "jazz meets Broadway" genre – and a record that was so successful, it went onto inspire countless imitations! Shelly Manne's working here in a lightly playful trio setting – alongside Andre Previn on piano and Leroy Vinnegar on bass, in a reading of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

Now's The Time!
RCA, 1964. Very Good+
A killer album from Sonny Rollins' prime 60s years at RCA – almost a return to basics, but always with that edge that makes Rollins stand out way more than most of his contemporaries – a subtle balance between straight and modern that really makes the album crackle! The album features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Winter & Carlos Lyra

Sound Of Ipanema
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good-
The sound of Ipanema in the 60s – served up here in a great partnership between American jazzman Paul Winter, and bossa composer Carlos Lyra! The album's an excellent bossa jazz session all the way through – with alto from Winter that's some of his sharpest on record in the 60s, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
