Kirk In Copenhagen

LP (Item 3569) Mercury, 1963 — Condition: Very Good
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

A rare slice of work by Roland Kirk from his early years – a great live set recorded in Europe in the mid 60's – done in a looser mode than his studio sessions from the time! Kirk's playing his usual array of incredible horns – tenor, stritch, flute, nose flute, and manzello – with an international group that features Tete Montoliu on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pederson on bass, and J.C. Moses on drums. In the setting, there's more of a hardbop feel to the material than on some of Kirk's studio sets – but given Roland's penchant for unusual phrasing, twin-reed blowing, and general free-thinking overall, the sound is pretty unique overall! Titles include "Mingus-Griff Song", "The Monkey Thing", and "On the Corner of King and Scott Streets".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono red label pressing with deep groove! Back cover has some aging.)

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.

Roland Kirk

We Free Kings
Mercury, 1961. Near Mint-
One of Roland Kirk's classic early recordings for Mercury, and the kind of stuff that has him mixing his wild reed playing with more traditional hardbop structures. Most of the tracks are quartet sides, with piano, bass, and drums backing Kirk up – but the real focus is on Kirks solos, which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roland Kirk

Volunteered Slavery
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint-
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Limelight, 1965. Very Good+
Mindblowing work from Roland Kirk – a record that really pushes the boundaries of his music even farther than some of his earlier, and excellent, albums for the Mercury label! Kirk's really stretching out here – finding a space in jazz that's uniquely his own – modern, yet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1957. Very Good+
John, aka Johnny Frigo, who's best known to our set for the rare dynamite jazz dance sides he recorded later on, and to the jazz world at large for his work as a bassist, leads a small group on this rare, early full length for Mercury as as a leader on his first instrument – the violin! It's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry Mulligan

Profile Of Gerry Mulligan
Mercury, 1955. Very Good
A pretty obscure session by Gerry – recorded in 1955, and featuring Jon Eardly on trumpet, Zoot Sims on tenor, and Bob Brookmeyer on trombone. Gerry actually plays a bit of piano, in addition to his usual baritone – and the set bubbles with a lightly swinging, slightly modern feel that' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Great Pyramid
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+
One of the most spiritual, soulful albums ever from the great Charles Earland – a set that's almost his answer to the keyboard styles of Lonnie Liston Smith in the 70s – and done with a very spiritual vibe! We love Earland on Hammond – but here he also plays Fender Rhodes, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Hamilton

Catwalk
Mercury, 1977. Near Mint-
Not classic Chico – but a pretty darn nice album of fusion tracks, very much in the spirit of other Mercury jazz work from the 1976/1977 generation! The tracks have a nice riffing groove to them – with fast tight drums from Chico, souflul sax work by Arthur Blythe and Gary Gordon, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1946/1959/1960. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A nice range of Buddy Rich work from the postwar years! LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones

Birth Of A Band
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+
A very swingin, very groovy early album from Quincy – one that's clearly in the big band mode, but handled with soulful touches that really set it apart from the genre!
