Golden Delicious

LP (Item 371013) Inner City, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

A beautiful little fusion set from guitarist John Stowell – one that dances along at a really breezy pace, thanks to a nice "bottom" from drummer Billy Hart and percussionist Dom Um Romao! Stowell's practically by himself at the top of the set – playing with amazing control of the strings, and a tone that has a warm bell-like quality. Claudio Roditi also plays a bit of trumpet on the session, and Jim McNeely's handling piano for the record. The best tracks are longish, with a sound that's not exactly fusion – but a nice mix of acoustic and electric modes that ring out with breezy freshness. Titles include "Loran Mirage", "Afterburn", "Banging The Silent Zero", "Festival Dance", and "In Repose".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Certain Blacks (Inner City pressing)
America/Inner City, 1970. Very Good+
One of our favorite albums ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – a key French session that captures the group at the height of their powers!

Ken McIntyre

Home (US pressing)
Inner City, 1976. Very Good+
A beautiful little album that's as sparely evocative as its title! Ken McIntyre's playing a wonderful Dolphy-inspired assortment of reeds that include alto sax, flute, oboe, and bassoon – working with a quartet that includes Jaki Byard on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Andrei Strobert on ...

Hannibal Marvin Peterson

Hannibal In Antibes
Inner City, 1977. Very Good+
A classic live set from trumpeter Marvin Hannibal Peterson – done with two side-long tracks that really let the group stretch out in a very spiritual way!

Charlie Mariano

October
Contemp/Inner City, 1977. Very Good+
An icy set of tunes from Charlie – recorded in Germany with one of his electric 70s ensembles. Rainer Brunighaus plays a host of keyboards, Barre Phillips plays bass, and the album sports some tabla and percussion from Trilok Gurtu. The overall sound is pretty nice – tightly jamming ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cecil Taylor

Dark To Themselves
Inner City, 1976. Very Good+
One of Cecil Taylor's most spiritual sessions of the 70s – a live set recorded in Yugoslavia in 1976, and done with this really open sound, but one that comes as much from the horns as it does from Cecil's piano! In fact, we might well say that the horns are the best attraction here – ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Friedman

Futures Passed
Inner City, 1976. Sealed
One of the coolest, grooviest albums we've ever heard from vibist Dave Friedman – a set that really lives up to the promise we sometimes expect from other records of his, but never find this clearly! Friedman plays both marimba and vibes – the latter with this bold, chromatic quality ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cal Tjader

Warm Wave
Verve, Mid 60s. Sealed Gatefold
A mighty nice pairing – the vibes of Cal Tjader and the sophisticated arrangements of Claus Ogerman – who definitely ensures that the album's the warm wave promised in the title! The core group features Jerome Richardson on reeds, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Hank Jones on piano – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz Contemporaries (Keno Duke)

Reasons In Tonality
Strata East, 1973. Very Good+
One of the greatest Strata East albums, and one of the few albums ever by Keno Duke (and all of them are great). Duke leads a crack group of soul jazz players, featuring Clifford Jordan and George Coleman on tenor, plus Julius Watkins on French horn, and Harold Mabern on piano, who is in excellent ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Shaw

Carnival Sketches
Argo, 1964. Near Mint-
A fantastic record by one of the great lost trumpet talents of the 60s – and a key album on the Chicago scene of the time too! Gene "Clarence" Shaw played with Mingus, until the big one scared him away, and he fled to Chicago and started recording LPs for Argo. All of the LPs are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

Stitt Goes Latin
Roost, 1963. Very Good+
Sonny Stitt goes Latin – and the results are tremendous! The set's still got all the soulful feel of the best Stitt sessions for Roost, but it brings in some nice Latin rhythms too – inflecting things with that blend of soul jazz and congas you might find over at Prestige or Blue Note, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Rouse

Two Is One
Strata East, 1974. Very Good+
Tenorist Charlie Rouse is best known for his angular work with Monk in the 60's, but this album's a rare bit of funky soul jazz from the 70s – with a very different sound than you'd expect! A number of the tracks have electric guitar, cello, and extra percussion – all of which make for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Andrew's Music, 1971. Very Good+
An album of solo reed work from the enigmatic Andrew White – a brilliant talent who was part of the DC jazz scene in the 60s and 70s – but who chose to remain out of the limelight, releasing intimate albums like this on his own record label! The album's got a very unique sound – ... LP, Vinyl record album
