LP (Item 3580) Jazzland, 1961 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of the few sessions ever recorded as a leader by the great alto player Sonny Red! Red's tone on the alto has always been one of our favorites – raspy, soulful, and sharp-edged in a way that's really unique – but even if you include his work as a sideman, there's probably only a dozen albums on which you might hear him play from the 50s and 60s, making this record an extremely key chance to hear his talents! This set's got a nice soul jazz groove, with accompaniment by Grant Green, Blue Mitchell, and Barry Harris, and a lot of nice laidback tracks in the Jazzland style. Tracks include "Blue Sonny", "Images", "Dodge City", and "The Rhythm Thing".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(OJC pressing, still in the shrink, with hype sticker.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Sonny Stitt

Low Flame
Jazzland, 1962. Very Good
A mellow late-night set of jazz tracks, cut with Don Patterson and his trio that included Paul Weeden and Billy James. The record has a great soulful sound that's a lot more like some of Patterson's work on Prestige than the usual stuff on Jazzland – and we almost wonder if the session wasn't ...

Paul Gonsalves

Gettin' Together
Jazzland, 1960. Near Mint-
Hard edged jazz stuff, featuring the great tenorist in a spare (and rare) setting away from Duke Ellington's band. Wynton Kelly, Jimmy Cobb, Nat Adderley, and Sam Jones lay down a nice soulful groove with a deep bottom, and Gonsalves plays with warmth and imagination throughout. The set includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1961. Sealed
A firey little trio session from Junior Mance – one that features tracks taken at a pace that's even more uptempo than usual, and which really pushes his skills on the keys! The speed of the set is by no means a detriment to Mance's soulful playing – and if anything, the record stands ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Johnny Griffin

Griff & Lock
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint-
Classic tenors head-to-head – as Griff & Lock lay out one of their excellent 2 tenor classics from the early 60s! The rhythm section's deeply soulful – with Junior Mance on piano, Larry Gales on bass, and Ben Riley on drums – and the album grooves through some long blowers, a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1957/Early 60s. Near Mint-
An interesting little LP that compiles alternate takes from Monk's classic album for Riverside – Monk's Music – the session that featured the unique twin tenor lineup of John Coltrane and Coleman Hawkins. The album features 4 different alternates of tunes from that set – "Nut ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1957. Very Good
A really wonderful album by Herbie – and one of the few to feature him exclusively on bass clarinet! Bass clarinet is one of the hippest of instruments – mastered only by a few strong solo players in jazz, like Eric Dolphy or David Murray – and Herbie shows here that he was way ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1960. Very Good+
Excellent work from Oscar Pettiford – his last sessions, in case you couldn't tell by the title, recorded in Copenhagen in 1959 and 1960, with players that include Allan Botchinsky on trumpet, Jan Johansson on piano, Erik Nordstrom on tenor, and Luis Hjulmand on vibes. Despite the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Red Garland

Solar
Jazzland, 1962. Near Mint-
An obscure little quartet session from Red Garland – recorded with Les Spann on both guitar and flute, caught at a time when he was just starting to make waves on the New York scene! The presence of Spann gives the record a decidedly different feel than most of Garland's work on Prestige ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland/Landmark, 1960. Sealed
Fantastic work from the Cannonball Adderley Quintet – one of their greatest performances from the seminal early 60s years! The band at this time includes Cannon on alto, Nat on cornet, Victor Feldman on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and although Feldman's not as ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Shearing & The Montgomery Brothers

George Shearing & The Montgomery Brothers
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint-
Some of jazz's most sensitive artists get together in a lyrical set of light-handed ditties. Shearing's piano is a surprisingly nice complement to the vibes/bass/guitar sound of The Montgomery Brothers – and the group is augmented by some nice Latin percussion. Tracks are short, and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCann

Layers
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold
This might well be the best album that Les McCann ever cut during the 70s! It's got some killer electric piano riffs, of the sort that are being sampled heavily today by the kids, and which are getting his music to a whole new af generation. The tracks have a tight spacey funk sound, and they don' ... 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
