Like Grass

LP (Item 33851) EMI (Sweden), 1973 — Condition: Very Good+

Beautiful stuff from one of Sweden's greatest jazz artists! Gullin's known mostly as a baritone player, but on this rare 1973 outing, he plays piano in a number of different settings – all touched with a uniquely creative vision that you don't always encounter on some of his earlier recordings on the large horn. There's slight bits of Monk and Herbie Nichols here, but Gullin also adds some wonderful bits of lyricism – which are quickly picked up by bandmates Lee Konitz, Bernt Rosengren, Red Mitchell, and Island Ostlund. A wonderful session throughout – still incredibly fresh, and unlike anything else we can think of. Titles include "Solvarm Vils", "Like Grass", "The Hambo Combo", "Blue Mail", and "Subway".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Peas & Rice
Prestige, 1967. Very Good
Stunning stuff – and one of the few great records that vibist Freddie McCoy cut for Prestige! Very different than the usual funky vibesmen, Freddie's got a style that leads itself nicely to modal pop soul jazz – as you'll hear on the short little groovers that fill up this album, all ...

Sonny Stitt

My Mother's Eyes
Pacific Jazz, 1963. Very Good
A rare one for Sonny Stitt – an album for Pacific Jazz recorded on the west coast, but done with some hard-burning organ work by Charles Kynard that easily matches any of Stitt's best soul jazz sides from the east! There's a tightly cooking feel to the entire set that's really great – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Third Degree Burn
Milestone, 1989. Near Mint-
A nice later set from the mighty burner, after he returned to the more bluesy organ based format from the more R&B and fusion inflected sets he'd released throughout the late 70s and early 80s. Though the rough edges are a bit more smoothed out on some of the numbers than we'd care for, the ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the hippest of Gerald Wilson's recordings for Pacific Jazz in the 60s – an excellent live session with a very groovy edge!
