LP (Item 372552) ABC/Impulse, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Very Good
2LP

A 2LP set issued in 1974 – one that features an assortment of late 50s and early 60s recordings done by Quincy for the ABC label! The album's graced with a stylish photo of Quincy on the cover, clearly designed to cash in on his big albums of the time – but the sound here is more in an older big band mode – the roots of 70s soul jazz and soundtrack grooves, heard in the earliest sides that Quincy recorded as a leader. Tracks are pulled from the albums Go West Young Man, This Is How I Feel About Jazz, The Quintessence, and My Fair Lady Loves Jazz, a Billy Taylor album arranged by Quincy – and titles include "Boo's Bloos", "Stockholm Sweetnin", "The Oom Is Blues", "No Bones At All", "Quintessence", and "Dancin Pants".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner and split top seam.)

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.

Quincy Jones

We Had A Ball
Philips (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint-
Nice compilation that brings together tight jazzy big band material from Quincy's years at the Mercury label! Most of the cuts on here are pre-bossa, pre-soundtrack – but there's some great uptempo numbers that still prove that Quincy knew how to jam. Titles include "Happy Faces", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones

Gula Matari
A&M, 1970. Sealed Gatefold
A real step forward for Quincy Jones – a record that really shows the jazzman moving into sophisticated new territory – a sound that's just right for the CTI generation! The album's got a vibe that's a bit similar to Quincy's Walking In Space album, but it's a lot deeper too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah Sanders

Jewels Of Thought
Impulse, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold
A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-H ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963/1964. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A pretty nice 2LP set that collects together McCoy's early trio sides for Impulse – pulled from albums that were issued under his own name, and mostly featuring Coltrane-based lineups that either include Jimmy Garrison or Art Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The set features 2 tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
Modal Coltrane at its finest – a record that almost returns the great one to the territory explored at the end of his years at Atlantic Records, but which still incorporates all of the new ideas learned afterwards! The album's actually one of the straightest that John Coltrane cut after 1964 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Scott

Scott Free
ABC, 1955. Very Good+
Killer trio work from pianist Bobby Scott – a set that's a bit more freewheeling than some of his other work of the 50s, and totally great overall! The focus here isn't nearly as strongly on the arrangements as you'll get on some of Scott's other records – and instead, his piano work, ... 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

Pee Wee Russell

Ask Me Now!
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover! Sure, Pee Wee was a bit of a traditionalist on his instrument – the clarinet – but he's working here in a starkly modern way that almost recalls some of the best 50s work of Jimmy Guiffre, or ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of a late 70's series of unissued takes from 'Trane's Impulse years. This set features the "classic" quartet with McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison & Elvin Jones, augmented by Art Davis as a second bassist on a couple of tracks. It's clear from the material here that Coltrane was on ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

His Greatest Years Vol 3
Impulse, 1960s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A 2 LP retrospective of some of the more spiritual exploratory sides 'Trane was cutting in the mid to late '60's for Impulse. A number of cuts feature the classic quartet with Jimmy Garrison, McCoy Tyner & Elvin Jones, but a few feature some of the later lineups with Pharoah Sanders, Reggie ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keith Jarrett

Byablue
Impulse, 1976. Near Mint-
There's a nicely warming vibe on this album from Keith Jarrett – a sound that's sometimes a bit more laidback and personal, but which is still carried off with familiar associates Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums! Most of the tunes are shorter ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman

John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman
Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark album of vocal jazz – and one of the few sessions that John Coltrane ever cut with a singer! In a way, the album's more Hartman's than it is Coltrane's – given that Johnny's warm, mellow style of singing isn't as free and open as Trane at his most adventurous – but at ...
