I'm Always Dancin' To The Music

LP (Item 3544) Columbia, 1978 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Great stuff from Benny Golson! Sure, the record features Benny's tenor set amidst some sweeter R&B arrangements – but the formula works nicely, and is Benny's lost bid to capture some of the same sort of modern soul excitement than Donald Byrd was getting in the 70s. Titles include the dancefloor classic "I'm Always Dancin' to the Music", the funky version of "Blues March", and the sweet cover of "Don't Ask My Neighbors". (Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover & labels have an ink stamp.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Message From Hambro
Columbia, Mid 50s. Very Good+
A bold little message from alto saxophonist Lenny Hambro – a very strong record that should have made him as much of a giant on his instrument as contemporary talents like Lee Konitz or Herb Geller! Hambro has some of the soulful edge of the latter, and lots of the crisp, modern chromes of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Romeo & Juliet
Columbia, 1976. Very Good
Forget the snoozy title – because this set's a nice bit of funky flute jazz from Hubert Laws, with a strong CTI-ish feel! The set was produced by Bob James, and has lots of strong James touches – from the sweet work on Fender Rhodes and clavinet that works nicely with the flute on most ... LP, Vinyl record album
Electric Rendezvous
Columbia, 1982. Very Good
A sweet electric rendezvous from guitarist Al Di Meola – and a record that stands in sharp contrast to some of the mellower acoustic sessions he was cutting at the time! The album's got a mix of fuzz and funk that's a bit like some of Stanley Clarke's albums for Columbia in the same stretch ... LP, Vinyl record album
Communication
Columbia (UK), 1967. Very Good
A very cool small combo set from Johnny Scott – the British jazzman who'd also be known for his larger arrangements and soundtrack work! This set features a quintet with a very cool vibe – flute from Johnny, tenor from Duncan Lamont, and harp from David Snell – which gives the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Exotic Mysteries
Columbia, 1978. Very Good
One of the fullest-sounding albums ever cut by Lonnie Liston Smith – but one of the greatest albums too! The set has Smith really taking off a bit more than on his work for RCA or Flying Dutchman – hitting some fuller sounds in the studio, thanks to backings arranged by Berg DeCoteaux, ... LP, Vinyl record album
My Funny Valentine
Columbia, 1964. Very Good
One of those key cases where Miles Davis took a familiar song and made it his own! The set's a live one, and features a famous 15 minute version of "My Funny Valentine" – played by Davis in a spacious, open sort of way – and one that has key hints of the modernism to come in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love Devotion Surrender
Columbia, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Pretty hip stuff, with a definite Coltrane influence – and Larry Young in the group on organ, along with Billy Cobham on drums and Armando Peraza on congas. Titles include "Naima", "A Love Supreme", "Let Us Go Into The House Of The Lord", "Meditation", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+
An excellent live outing from pianist Denny Zeitlin – recorded at the height of his early powers! The session's got a fresly new conception to piano-based jazz – a style that resonates nicely with the best 60s work of Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett, sharing some of the tenderness of the ...

Heard Round The World
Columbia, 1964. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Great set that reissues material from 2 live albums that were never properly issued in the US – Miles In Tokyo, recorded in 1964, with Sam Rivers, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams; and Miles In Berlin, recorded in 64 as well, with the same group, minus Rivers, plus Wayne Shorter ...

Kind Of Blue
Columbia, 1959. Near Mint-
What can we say? This is the ultimate Miles Davis album – the one that includes so many songs that we've heard way too much in Starbucks, in retail stores, or at a friend's house who claims to be a "jazz expert", but is really a yuppie dilettante. Yet somehow, over all the years, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Always Know
Columbia, Mid 60s/1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Nice 2LP set that brings together a large amount of material by Monk that was recorded during the 60s, but never issued at the time. Most of the material is live, and some of the tracks did come out previously in edited form – but this collection (like so many of the other great Columbia 70's ... LP, Vinyl record album
H
Tappan Zee/Columbia, 1980. Near Mint- Gatefold
The cover might be a bit gimmicky – with a giant image of a hot dog – but the album's actually one of the more sensitive outings from keyboardist Bob James at the time – a really refreshing blend of modes and styles, served up on Fender Rhodes, Oberheim, and acoustic piano! There' ... LP, Vinyl record album
