Fourth Dimension

LP (Item 3513) Cadet, 1974 — Condition: Very Good+

An excellent album from Brother Jack – one that has him making a shift from organ to electric keyboards, but in a mode that loses none of his funkiness, none of his soul, and none of his wit! The album's got some wonderfully angular groovers – showing that McDuff was always growing his style, working into grooves that always pushed him past his earlier work. Includes the stellar tracks "The City Bump" and "Layin' Back" – plus "Show Casing", "Half Breed", and "Fourth Dimension".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner, ring and edge wear, some heavy wear at the spine, and is bent at the top right corner.)

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.

Prestige, 1966. Very Good+
Excellent stuff – a mid 60s collection of some of Jack's earlier work for Prestige, with a focus on the kind of jukebox-busting tracks that made him a legend right out of the box! Tracks are lean, mean, and with the kind of gutbucket organ groove that made Jack one of the best of the 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

Never Can Say Goodbye
Cadet, 1975. Very Good+
Sonny Stitt in a sweet electric funk mode – working here in a style that's almost more CTI/Kudu than the usual Cadet Records groove! Arrangements are by James Brown heavyweight Pee Wee Ellis – who also plays some moog on the set – and other players include Wilbur Bascomb on bass, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Bryant

Ray Bryant Touch
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+
Simple stuff – but very nice! Ray's working here in a live trio setting – ala Ramsey Lewis or Les McCann from the same time – and his work on the album has a similar gutbuckety soul feel to it. The rhythm section of Jimmy Rowser bass and Rudy Collins drums is very tight – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Bryant

Slow Freight
Cadet, 1966. Very Good+
A killer album by soul jazz pianist Ray Bryant! The title track, "Slow Freight", is an amazing 10 minute groover that moves at a very slow pace (just like a freight train), and which features some very cool ad-lib talking by Paul Serrano – a pretty groovy touch that really adds a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Herman

Heavy Exposure
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+
Excellent stuff – a record that we love it to death, and listen to all the time! Woody Herman's band meets the soulful arrangements of Richard Evans, and the whole thing cooks nicely in the Chess studios in Chicago. The result is a tasty blend of soulful big band tracks, with a strident ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Bryant

Swahili Strut
Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good+
An excellent bit of funky stuff from LA trumpeter Bobby Bryant. The set was recorded for Cadet in LA, features tight arangements by Bryant, and a lot of nice long cuts that have a bit more of a groove than some of his other recordings (although most of them are pretty great). Tracks include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Black Messiah
Capitol, Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A massive live set from Cannonball Adderley – and a record that really shows the growth he'd undergone in just a few short years! The album's done in close collaboration with David Axelrod – who'd handled Cannon's big live dates for Capitol in the 60s – but this record is much ... LP, Vinyl record album

Michel Legrand

Michel Legrand & Friends
RCA, 1975. Near Mint-
A really wonderful album from Michel Legrand – one of his few jazz efforts to really capture the same dynamic charm of his soundtracks! The album was recorded live – with a mixed group of electric and acoustic players that includes Joe Beck, Randy Brecker, Ron Carter, Phil Woods, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 40s. Near Mint- 3LP Box Set
A great little box set – one that brings together a wealth of material from the years 1945 to 1947 – recorded by various "Herds" led by Herman, some of his most famous and groundbreaking work of the time. Arrangements are by Ralph Burns, Shorty Rogers, and Neal Hefti. ... LP, Vinyl record album

McCoy Tyner

13th House
Milestone, 1980. Near Mint-
A really majestic set of tracks from McCoy Tyner – recorded at the end of the 70s, but easily one of his best records of that fruitful decade! The group's a large ensemble – and the feel is in that perfect searching spiritual soul jazz mode that Tyner focused on as the 70s wore on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1958. Fair
A surprisingly wonderful set from Wynton Kelly – really fluid and swinging, and with a unique approach on half the material! The core group of the set features Kenny Burrell on guitar, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but then Jones sits it out on the second side ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bluebird/RCA, Mid 40s. Near Mint- 4LP Box Set
A massive selection of songs from the same period as Ellington's album of the same name. With a whole bunch of his classic players, including Billy Strayhorn, Johnny Hodges, Ray Nance, Al Hibbler, Oscar Pettiford, and many more. Tracks include "Work Song", "Come Sundday", ...
