A nice follow-up to the original Poll Winners set on Contemporary – one that features the trio of Barney Kessel, Shelly Manne, and Ray Brown – all working in a relatively relaxed setting, and hitting a vibe that's a bit more easygoing than you'd expect to catch for Contemporary at the time! The groove's surprisingly open and soulful, making the record feel a bit like a Prestige Swingville or Moodsville set – and it's especially nice to hear Kessel in such an unfettered set. Titles include "Foreign Intrigue", "Custard Puff", "Be Deedle Dee Do", "Volare", and "The Merry Go Round Broke Down". (Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover is stained and peeled on the bottom 3 inches.)  © 1996-2016, 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.

Cry!
Contemporary, 1963. Good+
A classic of spiritual jazz! The album is one of the few rare pairings of Sonny Simmons and Prince Lasha from the 60s – and it's arguably the greatest album they ever cut! The set was recorded for the Contemporary label in LA, but it's far far different than the cool jazz that was the label' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Volunteered Slavery
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sidewinder
Blue Note, 1964. Good
A jazz classic if there ever was one – and the best-selling album ever by Lee Morgan, thanks to the use of the title track in a car commercial! Sure, you've probably heard "The Sidewinder" enough that you think you know the album already – but the rest of the tunes really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Groove
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good-
An early cooker from Richard Groove Holmes – and one of the most important Hammond jazz sets to come out of the west coast at the time! At a point when most folks think the east has a lock on the instrument, Groove bursts forth here with a great hard-edged sound – proof that the LA ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold
One of the most righteous Horace Silver albums for Blue Note – and a far-reaching, politically-bent batch of tracks that feature vocals by Andy Bey, in a similar style to the work he did on the Gary Bartz records from the time – very hip, and quite different than other jazz vocal work ...
