Albert's House

LP (Item 398454) Beverly Hills, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+

A lost little gem from Chet Baker – recorded with a gentle, homey feel that we really like! The album's not one of the standouts in Chet's catalog, but it's got a personal, almost intimate quality that we find really compelling – almost a broken soul sense of playing, with Chet stumbling a bit amidst relaxed backings by a small combo that includes Barney Kessel on guitar, and Paul Smith on piano and organ. The tunes are nothing fancy, but often quite nice – and the set includes a number of original tunes written by Steve Allen that get past the obvious Baker numbers. Titles include "Abert's House", "Farewell San Francisco", "Time", "How Dare You Sir", "End Of The Line", "Life", and "Sunday In Town".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original 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.

Bob James

Three
CTI, 1976. Very Good- Gatefold
Dark genius from keyboardist Bob James – one of his seminal 70s classics for CTI! The album follows strongly in the spirit of the records One and Two – using James' spacious approach to Fender Rhodes alongside some backings that are electric, yet have an earthily funky quality that ...

Prestige, 1964. Very Good-
Bad Bossa Nova is right – as Gene Ammons really hits a great groove here – one that's not exactly bossa, but which has lots of Latin and tropical touches! The session makes great use of 2 guitars at the same time – using that of Kenny Burrell for soulful rhythm, but also adding ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Hodges

Big Sound
Verve, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Hodges leads a large group of Ellington players that includes Willie Cook, Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Jimmy Hamilton, Harry Carney, Ray Nance, and Jimmy Woode.

Columbia, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Mingus live is always a treat – especially in these later years, when the fire seemed to go out of most of his studio recordings. Live, though, he always managed to kick it hard - with the sort of emotion that graced his strong early albums. And despite the fact that this one's conducted by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Burrell & Jimmy Smith

Blue Bash
Verve, 1963. Very Good-
A surprisingly great meeting between Kenny Burrell and Jimmy Smith – and a set that's one of Jimmy's standout small combo sessions for Verve! The feel here is much more Jimmy Smith at Blue Note than some of the bigger group Verve dates of the 60s – and Kenny Burrell's sensitive guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Dankworth

Movies N Me
RCA, 1974. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1958. Near Mint-
Although Stan Kenton's always best known for his famous work with 50s LA reedmen, he's equally great at working with strings as he is with saxes! This set reunites Stan with arranger Pete Rugolo – the darkly modern talent who helped Kenton hit some of his highest heights in the early 50s, ... LP, Vinyl record album
