Big Band Jazz From The Summit

LP (Item 39944) Roulette, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

One of Louie's hippest records – a hard grooving set of tracks recorded live, with a swinging off-beat edge that's very different than some of his other straighter work. The players include Conte Candoli on trumpet, Joe Maini on alto, Willie Green on tenor, and Bill Perkins on baritone – as well as Gene Estes on vibes and "boo bams"(?) Most tracks are uptempo, often with a bit of a swinging crime jazz sound to them – and titles include "Cool", "Gumshoe", "Blitzen", "Doozy", and "The Diplomat Speaks".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s Spanish Fresh Sound pressing.)

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.

Louie Bellson

Break Through!
Project 3, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
Some very groovy big band work from Louis Bellson – working here in a Project 3 mode that's as much funky easy as it is jazz! The album's got some very tasty Varitone work by Pete Christlieb – blowing over the top of the group's vamping, chomping charts with a flatly soulful tone on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roulette, 1960/1962. Near Mint- 2LP Ga tefold
A Basie 2-fer! First up is Kanas City Suite – a great little set – despite our initial fears! We'll admit that we're the first ones to shy away from anything that says "Kansas City" in the title – as we expect a lot of hoke – but this album's a surprisingly great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Doggett

Honky Tonk A-La Mod!
Roulette, 1966. Very Good+
The soulful Hammond of Bill Doggett gets a sweet shift for the 60s – hitting a mod jazz mode that Bill no doubt inspired by his groundbreaking work of the 50s! The groove here is nicely snapping – in a space between soul instrumental work and jazz, with lots of tight guitar from Billy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grant Green

Blue Note, 1970. Very Good-
A really fantastic album from guitarist Grant Green – a set that's every bit as great as his other Blue Note funk albums from the time – but in a very different way! First off, the group has vibes – played by the more obscure Willie Bivens, sometimes with this hard chromatic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+
More of a soul album than a jazz album – and a stripped-down mellow set that has Les singing and playing keyboards with a quartet that includes Miroslaw Kudykowski on guitar. Cuts include "Everywhere I Go, People Ask Me a Question", "Woman, Come Home", "I've Been ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Sketches Of Spain
Columbia, 1960. Very Good+
A beautiful collaboration between Miles Davis and the great Gil Evans – and perhaps the most perfectly realized of all their projects! The album's got a wonderfully unified feel – as it begins with long compositions that have a distinct Spanish-tinge (and not a Latin-tinge, which is an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Golson

Turning Point
Mercury, 1963. Very Good+
An incredible, and oft-overlooked album from the great Benny Golson – and one of the few early albums that really point the way to his huge run of work for decades to come! The style here is a bit looser, and more open than some of Golson's previous albums – less of a focus on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Improvising Artists Inc, 1978. Very Good+
Beautiful solo piano work from Sun Ra – presented in a style that's nicely different from his material on Saturn Records! Ra plays solo on his own compositions – "Sky & Sun", "I Am We Are I", "Thoughts On Thoth" – plus some older material that he ... LP, Vinyl record album
