Three For Shepp

LP (Item 3543) Impulse, 1966 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

An unbelievable recording! As Archie Shepp made his first album for Impulse a tribute to Coltrane, Marion Brown made his a tribute to Shepp – a wonderful lineage of avant talent in the 60s, stated boldly here, given Brown's amazing talent on the record! The album's filled with hard, soulful playing that goes out, but never too far – like Shepp in his best sixties moments – and Brown's working with a great lineup of players that includes Grachan Moncur on trombone, Beaver Harris on drums, and Stanley Cowell on piano! The tunes include three Marion Brown originals on side one, plus three tracks by Shepp on side two. "Spooks" alone will leave you loving this album for years to come – and other tracks include "West India", "Delicado", "New Blue", and "Fortunato". A brilliant blend of 60s "new thing" playing and 70s underground jazz!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Michael White

Land Of Spirit & Light
Impulse, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Beautiful work from Michael White – one of the few musicians who can actually make us love the sound of the violin in jazz! White's working here in a style that's very much in line with some of the post-Coltrane spiritual soul jazz in Impulse in the early 70s – an approach that's free-t ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Chapter 2 of Gato's Latin American trilogy – and like the first, a set of tracks that features Gato's firey sax work engaging a complex series of Latin rhythms. Some of the tracks on the record feature Brazilian influences – from players like Helio Delmiro and Novelli – and one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
A really great little album – one that really gets at the bright, joyous feel that Clark Terry brings to his music! Despite the "happy" in the title – which might make you think this one would be a bit silly – the album's a pretty great record! Terry plays both trumpet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah Sanders

Jewels Of Thought
Impulse, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-H ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Rivers

Crystals
Impulse, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Sam Rivers' most striking albums for Impulse, a record that has him leading a fairly large group – working in an "orchestral context", as the notes on the cover say, but not really a jazz orchestra – more of a freewheeling avant ensemble, in the tradition of work by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott

Queen Of The Organ
Impulse, 1964. Very Good Gatefold
Classic Shirley Scott – in her best mode of the 60s! Here's the reasons: 1. The group features husband Stanley Turrentine on tenor, adding in some nice extra tones to Shirley's usual trio! 2. The rhythm section is Bob Cranshaw and Otis Finch – surely one of Shirley's best. 3. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keith Jarrett

Shades
ABC/Impulse, 1976. Near Mint-
A lost gem from Keith's "with horns" period – a quintet session from the mid 70s, recorded with a group that features Dewey Redman on tenor, plus Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums and percussion, and Guilherme Franco on additional percussion. The feel is a bit straighter ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keith Jarrett

Byablue
Impulse, 1976. Near Mint-
There's a nicely warming vibe on this album from Keith Jarrett – a sound that's sometimes a bit more laidback and personal, but which is still carried off with familiar associates Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums! Most of the tunes are shorter ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1961/1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Excellent work from the same sessions that yielded Coltrane's massive Africa/Brass album – recorded in 1961, but not issued until the time of this 1974 release! The tracks feature Trane leading a group young modernists through a set of larger arranged charts, woven tightly together in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Selflessness
Impulse, 1963/1965. Very Good Gatefold
A great set of unreleased recordings that was issued after John Coltrane's death, but which stands as an essential chapter in his groundbreaking body of work for Impulse! The album features 2 tracks recorded at the Newport Jazz fest in 1963 – both with Roy Haynes on drums, plus the usual ... 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
