LP, Vinyl record album

(€12.81 || £11.53 || ¥1658) (approx.)

Groovin' set of tracks that has the lady organist in two settings – one with her trio with Jimmy Cobb on drums, the other with a hard swingin' big band led by Oliver Nelson. She's great with Nelson's band, and swings in the same hard way that Jimmy Smith does in the same setting. Tracks include "Blue Piano", "Toys In The Attic", and the groovin' "Freedom Dance". (Orange & black label stereo pressing, with Van Gelder/Stereo stamp. Cover has some pen on back.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Sweet Soul
Prestige, Mid 60s. Very Good-
One of her early trio albums, with a nice laidback, late-night, organ soul groove. She's backed by Earl May on bass and Roy Brooks on drums, and the tracks include "Sweet Slumber", "Happy Talk", and "I Hear A Rhapsody". LP, Vinyl record album
Scottie Plays The Duke
Prestige, 1959. Good+

Shirley's Sounds
Prestige, 1958. Very Good+
Straight organ trio stuff from Shirley, with her as the lead soloist, backed by either George Duvivier or George Tucker on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums. The tracks are mostly standards – "Bye Bye Blackbird", "S'posin", "Indiana", "Summertime", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Workin
Prestige, 1967. Very Good
Nice one – and a record that's heavier-duty than Shirley's other ones on Prestige. The album (which might have been recorded in earlier days), supports a great group on the b-side, which includes Wally Richardson, Ronell Bright, Peck Morrison, and Roy Haynes. The expanded lineup works ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great Scott!! (Impulse)
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
Swinging organ tracks from Shirley, with large band backing by Oliver Nelson, very much in the mode of Jimmy Smith's albums with Nelson on Verve! Includes a nice reading of the theme from "Shot In The Dark", plus "Hoe Down", "Shadows Of Paris", and "Great ... LP, Vinyl record album
On A Clear Day
Impulse, 1966. Good+ Gatefold
One of the best Shirley Scott albums ever – a wonderfully groovy little set that seems to stand head and shoulders above some of her other trio dates of the 60s! Shirley really hits a nice clean groove here – a sense of tone we don't always hear this beautifully on earlier Prestige ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ballads
Impulse, 1962. Very Good Gatefold
A perennial favorite in the John Coltrane catalog – a beautiful set of standards, handled in a warm laidback style – one that shows that Trane's groundbreaking group with Jimmy Garrison on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and McCoy Tyner on piano could still express themselves with even more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ascension (Version 1)
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
This is the rare first take of Ascension, and it differs greatly from the second take, which is the more widely available one. It's designated by the fact that the recording doesn't say "Version II" on the runoff groove. One of the freest, most exploratory albums ever recorded by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love Supreme
Impulse, 1964. Very Good Gatefold
Maybe one of the greatest jazz albums of all time – a real breakthrough moment for the legendary John Coltrane, and the blueprint for generations of jazz records to come! Trane was already breaking down plenty of boundaries before Love Supreme – but he knocked it out of the park for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Om
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s! The 1965 recording was one of Trane's most adventurous so far – as it featured just one album-length track, building up out of relatively free expressions from Coltrane in the studio ... LP, Vinyl record album
Outertimeinnerspace
Impulse, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the most open-ended 70s albums from the great Ahmad Jamal – a live performance that features two side-long tracks that really show Jamal getting into the spirit of the Impulse Records scene of the time! In addition to these wonderful, long-spun lines on acoustic piano – really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Carnival
Arista Freedom, 1974. Very Good
An unusual record for Randy Weston – a freewheeling live set recorded at Montreux in 1974, with Billy Harper joining Weston's group on tenor and flute, playing long spiritual solos that work wonderfully next to Weston's spiralling piano lines! Harper's searching quality really opens up the ... LP, Vinyl record album
