Dave Digs Disney

LP (Item 388269) Columbia, 1957 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Dave Brubeck Quartet — Dave Digs Disney (Japanese pressing) ... CD 9.99
Dave Digs Disney – and hence, so do we! The album's one of the first to ever pay tribute to the great compositions heard in Disney films – and it features the magical sound of the Brubeck Quartet, turned upon a host of familiar numbers, and transforming them into longer vehicles for jazz improvisation. Given Dave's great sense of play with rhythm and timings, the tunes really get changed up in these versions – in a way that takes best advantage of the modal rhythms and jazz waltz styles that many of them share. Paul Desmond's alto work is as impeccably-handled as ever, and Joe Morello's sprightly drums seem perfectly at home with the tunes – as does Dave's warmly lyrical work on piano. Titles include "Alice In Wonderland", "Give A Little Whistle", "One Song", and "Someday My Prince Will Come".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono 6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split spine, light surface wear, and aging.)

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.

Concord, 1985. Near Mint-
With Bill Smith on clarinet, Chris Brubeck on electric bass and bass trombone, and Randy Jones on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Water Babies
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint-
A much different album than you might expect from the cover – hardly the funky 70s set implied by the Big Fun-styled cover – and instead a lost slice of work from his groundbreaking late 60s years! The set was recorded in 1967, but unissued until Miles late 70s time away from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Clarke

Let Me Know You
Columbia, 1982. Very Good
Stanley Clarke's a lot more soul-based than fusion here – but that's A-OK with us, because we like this sort of work a lot better than his jamming jazz rock of the 70s! The record's got a great mellow soul vibe – laidback and gently stepping – sometimes in a way that's a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Seven Steps To Heaven
Columbia, 1963. Very Good+
A key point in the development of the Miles Davis sound of the 60s – his first album to feature work from Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by some equally nice work on other tracks from Victor Feldman and Frank Butler! The sound here is beautifully spare – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington

Newport 1958
Columbia, 1958. Very Good+
Duke Ellington at Newport and in the studio – in a set of tracks recorded both live and away from the concert – but with a really unified feel overall! Duke's group here is in fine fine form – with key late 50s players who include Johnny Hodges on alto, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington

Piano In The Foreground
Columbia, 1963. Near Mint-
One of the Duke's greatest jazz recordings – and an album that features some incredible solo work on piano – at a level with other modernist small group sessions in the Ellington catalog, like Money Jungle or Live at the Whitney! As the title says, Duke's piano is very much in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 30s/Early 40s. Near Mint-
Conducted by Eugene Ormandy, with sidemen that include Les Robinson, Billy Butterfield, Cootie Williams, Slam Stewart, and Nick Fatool. LP, Vinyl record album

Dreams

Dreams
Columbia, 1970. Near Mint-
A nice little funky fusion set by Dreams – who were basically the Brecker Brothers, before they stepped out on their own and started calling themselves by that name! The fusion super group actually hews a little closer to the rock side of the fusion game at times, but there's no shortage of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Clarke

I Wanna Play For You
Columbia, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A wickedly funky album from Stanley Clarke – perhaps his most fully-formed album of the Columbia years, and a set that really brings together his jazz and soul styles! There's a definite R&B vibe going on, but it's also one that's still quite heavy on bass work from Stanley – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

GO
Blue Note, 1962. Very Good+
A seminal set of work from the Blue Note scene of the 60s – a record that's not just noteworthy for its role in helping return tenorist Dexter Gordon to the spotlight, but also for the fantastic work of pianist Sonny Clark in the quartet! Sonny's in wonderful form throughout – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+
Late 60's issue of the album previously released as The Village Caller, recorded in the early part of the decade. The set's funky vibes classic – and a landmark side from Detroit vibist Johnny Lytle! The set's one of the purest examples of Johnny's great early groove – a tightly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cecil Taylor

Indent
Arista, 1973/1977. Near Mint-
A beautiful solo piano set by Cecil Taylor – recorded live in Ohio in 1973, and originally released on his own small Unit Core label. The work is a perfect example of how Cecil was stretching himself at the time – working in a mode that was part free jazz, part 70s spiritualism, ... LP, Vinyl record album
