Jazz At Massey Hall Vol 2

LP (Item 363534) Debut, 1953 — Condition: Sealed

An early packaging of material recorded at the legendary Jazz At Massey Hall concert in 1953 – featuring the non-Charlie Parker & Dizzy Gillespie sides, recorded by a trio that featured Powell on piano, Charles Mingus on bass, and Max Roach on drums. The album was one of the first on the important Debut label – originally issued as a 10", but expanded later to a full 12" release, with additional material. This is the 12" release, with titles that include "Embraceable You", "Jubilee", "Bassically Speaking", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", "Cherokee", and "Sure Thing".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(OJC pressing – sealed with review sticker. Cover has a cut corner.)


This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.
