LP, Vinyl record album

(€17.69 || £15.38 || ¥2221) (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.

Hip Twist
Prestige, 1961. Very Good+
Hip Twist indeed – as Shirley's joined here by husband Stanley Turrentine, whose tenor work on any Scott album always takes it to the next level! Stan's tone is still nice and raw here – blowing out some hard and soulful lines that are the perfect complement to Shirley's more composed ... LP, Vinyl record album
Like Cozy
Moodsville, 1960. Very Good
A very well titled little album – as the sound here is nice and cozy – just Shirley Scott's organ with a bit of bass and drums, all stepping along in a mellow and soulful mood! The style is what you'd expect from the Moodsville label at the time – a more laidback, more intimate ... LP, Vinyl record album
Scottie Plays The Duke
Prestige, 1959. Very Good
Shirley Scott plays both the organ and piano with George Duviver on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums for these eight Duke Ellington tracks. The selections include "Caravan", "Just Squeeze In", "C Jam Blues", "Prelude To A Kiss", "In A Sentimental ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good
One of Shirley Scott's best records on Prestige (and in fact, one of the few really good ones). Shirley plays a bunch of Horace Silver compositions like "Moon Ray" and "Senor Blues", and the set's got a nice spiritual feel to it, without the hokiness of some of Shirley's other ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Once Upon A Time
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of our favorite records by Earl Hines – a hip little comeback set, recorded in the mid 60s with an Ellingtonish lineup that includes Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Ray Nance, Lawrence Brown, Jimmy Hamilton, and Johnny Hodges. Hines' piano is certainly a strong force in the record, but even ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Shadows
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great album from Shirley Scott – with some excellent arrangements by Gary McFarland! We've always felt that Shirley plays best when she's not leading the group – when someone else is handling the arrangements, so that she can groove mightily on her own – and this album is a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Everybody Loves A Lover
Impulse, 1964. Sealed Gatefold
A simple formula, but one of Shirley's best records from the mid 60s, and a tight batch of quartet tracks that also features Stanley Turrentine on tenor. The title cut's a classic jazz stepper in Chicago, with a subtly loping groove that works pretty darn well. Other tracks include "Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse/ABC, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Way nicer than some of Milt's earlier work – and one of the gems he recorded with bassist Ray Brown during the late 60s. The group's got a tight soul jazz stepping groove – with Monty Alexander on piano, comping along right over Ray's warm basslines in a very tasty way. Teddy Edwards ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963. Very Good Gatefold
Oliver Nelson's follow-up to his classic Blues & The Abstract Truth session for Impulse – and like that one, a tremendous little album – filled with deep tones and wonderful colors in sound! The group here's a bit larger than before – an ensemble that includes Phil Woods on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
John Coltrane returns to the Village Vanguard – but his sound here is a lot more far-reaching than a few years before! The album's a great counterpart to the first Vanguard session – as it takes all of the bold, soaring energy of that date, and balances it with the newly introspective ... LP, Vinyl record album
Carnival
Arista Freedom, 1974. 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
