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 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.
A killer set by Cal Tader – every bit as great as some of his best work from earlier years! The album was recorded with a small tight combo – one that features the great Mark Levine on both acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes, plus flute and percussion by Roger Glenn, and congas and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic – and about as great as you'd imagine! The cool Latiny vibes of Cal Tjader meet the great compositions of Burt Bacharach, and the result is a shimmering set of tracks that forever defines the sound of groovy 60s! Cal's the perfect choice for music like this – as his sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arguably THE classic Cal Tjader album of the 60s – a landmark album that crossed over equally into Latin, jazz, and mainstream audiences – and a stone cooker that's filled with smoking little grooves! The set's probably best known for its title track "Soul Sauce" – one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Moody mellow vibes from the great Cal Tjader – recording here with some excellent work on electric piano from Clare Fischer! Fischer didn't always use electric keys on records like this – and his presence here really makes the set sparkle – giving it an extra added Latin current ... LP, Vinyl record album
Funky Woody caught live at Montreux – a really wonderful set that follows strongly from his tight grooves of the Cadet years, and which is easily one of his best for Fantasy! Despite the live setting, the group are every bit as tight as they were in the studio during these years – ... LP, Vinyl record album
A 70s soulful classic from the mighty Stanley Turrentine! Stan's not the bad "Mister T" on this set – he's more in a smooth, mellow mode – blowing over some nice soulful arrangements by Gene Page, ones that take the CTI funk approach, add in some strings, and create a bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album
A strong live set from the end of the 70s – one that shows the culmination of McCoy Tyner's work within larger concept settings, a format that he'd been exploring thoroughly since the passing of his old leader, John Coltrane. The ensemble here is quite strong – with George Adams and ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great date with tenor sax from James Clay and Harold Land – plus sublime piano from Cedar Walton! Titles include "Deception", "Evidence", "Bridgework", "Old Folks", "The Theme", and "Plexus". LP, Vinyl record album
Pretty nice stuff from Brubeck's early years! The record features the work of his octet – a group that gives a rare opportunity to hear Brubeck in a large group setting, and one that also features work by Cal Tjader on drums (!), plus Dick Collins and Paul Desmond on their usual instruments. ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic album from Dave – recorded at Oberlin College, the mid-Ohio haven of bohemiana, and a growing hotbed of jazz activity centered around students in the college's conservatory of music. Dave and crew made the trip at the request of the kids – breaking from their mostly San ... LP, Vinyl record album
A slightly smaller take on the Ellington sound – but one that's still a bit fuller than you might guess from the "Small Bands" on the cover! There's definitely a more intimate feel here than usual – especially given the size of ensembles Duke was working with in the 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
A full LP that combines early work by Dave Brubeck – pulled together from a few 10" LPs, and packaged in a nice cartoony cover. The record features the work of his octet – a group that gives a rare opportunity to hear Brubeck in a large group setting, and one that also features ... LP, Vinyl record album
