Totally groovy work from John Dankworth – a 70s album that features slightly electrified versions of some of his older film and TV themes! The approach is quite different than the originals at times – with horn passages that are even quirkier, and some cool use of electric piano by Tony Hymas, which really sets the mood of the best tracks. The album's best known for its funky break version of "Modesty Blaise" – made famous by a sample from Del – but the whole thing's pretty great, both if you dig soundtrack work, and if you like the cooler big band styles of the British scene. Titles include "Modesty Blaise", "Long John", "Look Stranger", "Whirly Birly", "Round Table Round", "Herbie Walks Again", "All Gone", and "Morgan".

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

RCA, 1957. Very Good
One of the greatest albums from the early years of Phineas Newborn – a large group session from the pianist, and one with a very different feel than some of his trio sides! The music is all from the Harold Arlen musical Jamaica – but the groove is pure Newborn all the way, and a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album

A brilliant mix of jazz and world music!

Swingin' With Bud
RCA, 1957. Very Good
One of the few Bud Powell sessions cut for RCA, but a brilliantly swinging date that has the pianist working at the height of his powers! There's an edge here that comes through right from the start – an off kilter vibe in both Bud's tone, and even in the way he's vocalizing joyously in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Really hard-jamming work from keyboardist Brian Auger – the first of a 2-part live set from the US, and easily some of his greatest work on record! The tracks are all very long and stretched out here – an extrapolation of the territory Auger was already exploring on studio sides, taken ... LP, Vinyl record album

Straight Ahead
RCA, 1974. Very Good
Long lean groovers from Brian Auger and the Oblivion Express group – recorded with a slightly freer feel than some of the group's earlier albums, and an approach that has them stretching out nicely!

Lofty Fake Anagram
RCA, 1967. Very Good
A standout classic from Gary Burton – the kind of fresh-voiced and angularly modern session that showed why his sound on the vibes was one of the most revolutionary in jazz at the time! The session features a quartet with Larry Coryell on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Bob Moses on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
