I'm Always Dancin' To The Music

LP (Item 3544) Columbia, 1978 — Condition: Very Good-

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".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Benny Golson

Stockholm Sojourn
Prestige, 1965. Very Good
Quite an unusual session for Golson – a mid 60s album of larger arrangements, recorded during a brief period when Prestige was really letting him run with the style (including some tasty albums done with Jack McDuff!) The album's noteworthy for a couple of reasons – first because it's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Golson

Killer Joe
Columbia, 1977. Very Good
A fantastic album from tenor legend Benny Golson – one in which he reinvents his sound for the 70s, but still keeps all the tight sense of arrangement we loved in his earlier work! Benny's going for a funky jazz groove on most cuts – a bit clubby, in a Kudu Records mode – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1974. Very Good+
A lost fusion classic from the early 70s – one of the only records cut under the leadership of drummer Horacee Arnold, but a heck of a great little set with a soaringly righteous sound! The style here is plenty full-on, but a bit less rock-leaning than some of the other Columbia fusion of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Horacee Arnold

Tribe
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+
A very soulful batch of fusion tracks from drummer Horacee Arnold – here leading a group that includes reed talents Billy Harper and Joe Farrell, percussionist Ralph McDonald, guitarist Ralph Towner, and Dave Friedman on vibes and percussion. Tracks are long and spiralling, with a spiritual ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A sophisticated session from Sadao Watanabe – a live performance, but one that features some very ambitious arrangements from Dave Grusin – work that's almost at the level of some of Dave's more complicated work on 70s soundtracks! Grusin plays Fender Rhodes on the album, really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob James

H
Tappan Zee/Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ 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

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Handy

New View!
Columbia, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
One of his oft-overlooked 60's albums, and a nice batch of tracks with Bobby Hutcherson on vibes and Pat Martino on guitar. Some of the record's laid back, but some of it goes quite out, and has long tracks that let Handy wander around with nice soulful solos, while Hutcherson hits some very hard ...

Columbia, 1959/1960. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Nice 2-fer that brings together tracks from the classic albums Mingus Ah Um and Mingus Dynasty – 2 of Mingus' best albums! Both records come from the most fruitful time in Mingus' career, when he never seemed to do wrong, and when he was surrounded with some of the best young players of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Round About Midnight
Columbia, 1956. Very Good
Thelonious Monk may have written the title tune, but Miles Davis makes it all his own here – blowing with a subtle moody magic that makes the album one of his true treasures from the early Columbia Records years! John Coltrane's along on tenor sax – helping Davis expand the sound the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clifford Brown & Max Roach

Live At The Bee Hive
Columbia, 1955. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A rare slice of the career of this famous and short-lived jazz duo – tapes that were recorded in 1955 at the legendary Bee Hive niteclub in Chicago, but not issued until the end of the 70s, in this smashing 2LP set that was produced by Max himself! The material offers a strong contrast to ... LP, Vinyl record album
