Classic early set featuring the Jazz Messengers back when the group still included Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, and Kenny Dorham. Hard hard hard bop, cracklin' with energy, and a great example of the kind of playing that made the group an instant success. Tracks on this second volume include "Sportin Crowd", "Avila & Tequila", "I Waited For You", and "Yesterdays".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s DMM pressing. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Horace Silver

Stylings Of Silver
Blue Note, 1957. Sealed
A great Horace Silver album – and one of the rarest! The record features some top-line material that virtually defines Silver's post-Jazz Messengers sound – tracks that come out with a hard and heavy groove, yet which also have a lightness in the mix too – a sense of play and ...

Jack Wilson

Song For My Daughter
Blue Note, 1969. Near Mint-
An overlooked gem from pianist Jack Wilson – a set that really showcases his magnificent sense of sound and space – while mixing in some larger ideas as well! The record features full arrangements from Billy Byers – who creates this seductive blend of jazz and strings that still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Griffin

Congregation
Blue Note, 1957. Sealed
An early killer from Johnny Griffin – a stripped-down quartet session for Blue Note, done in a format that really gave him plenty of room to open up! The rhythm section is a powerful trio led by Sonny Clark on piano, and featuring bassist Paul Chambers alongside the obscure drummer Kenny ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Dorham

Afro-Cuban
Blue Note, 1955. Near Mint-
A completely unique little session – and a record that's every bit as musically striking as you might guess from its title and cover! The date's a rare Latin-tinged one for trumpeter Kenny Dorham – a record that takes his usually smooth sound and sets it up against octet backings with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good+
Donald Byrd's second foray into the "with voices" genre – done with the same arranging talents of Coleridge Perkinson, the lyrical modernist who made Donald's A New Perspective such a success! The group that plays with Byrd is excellent, and includes Freddie Roach, Herbie Hancock, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Hutcherson

San Francisco
Blue Note, 1971. Very Good+
Genius, pure genius! This album's possibly the most perfectly realized set from the team of Bobby Hutcherson on vibes and Harold Land on reeds – a pair who work here with an electric bass player and a bit of electric piano (the latter from Joe Sample) – hitting territory that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Mitchell

Bantu Village
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good+
One of the funkiest albums ever on Blue Note – a set that mixes the trumpet talents of Blue Mitchell with some killer backings from Monk Higgins – all in a groove that more gritty edges than the best funky soundtracks of the time! Higgins keeps the backings full, but always quite lean ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Pearson

Phantom
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good
Incredible work from pianist Duke Pearson – a darkly-tinged album of grooves that surpasses all his other gems for Blue Note! The record showcases some great work from Bobby Hutcherson – slid into the mix in a really sly way, so that his jazzy vibes color all the tunes with an edgey ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie McLean

Hipnosis (2LP set)
Blue Note, 1962/1967/1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Blue Note 2-fer from the late 70's that releases 2 sessions of Jackie's that never made it onto wax during the 60's. The first session's from his wailing hard bop days, and features Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Sonny Clark on piano, and Billy Higgins on drums. Tracks from this one include "Blues ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz Crusaders

Young Rabbits
Blue Note, 1960s/1975. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Very cool 2LP set that reissues a lot of hard to find early recordings by this tight soul jazz combo from LA (by way of Texas, where they got their start). Most of this stuff features the group in its original lineup, but there's also some nice guest appearances by folks like Hubert Laws, Clare ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Ballads
Impulse, 1962. Near Mint- Gatefold
A perennial favorite in the John Coltrane catalog – a beautiful set of standards, handled in a warm laidback style – one that shows that Trane's groundbreaking group with Jimmy Garrison on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and McCoy Tyner on piano could still express themselves with even more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Ventura

Jumping With Ventura
EmArcy, Early 50s. Very Good
Classic bop work from Charlie Ventura – recorded with a large band that includes Neal Hefti, Bennie Green, Bill Harris, Tony Scott, and Jackie Cain on vocals. With a lineup like that, it's hard to miss – and the album's filled with the kind of raw energy that made Ventura a surprising ... LP, Vinyl record album
