Cecil Taylor Unit

LP (Item 4060) New World, 1978 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

The Cecil Taylor Unit here is composed of Taylor, Jimmy Lyons on alto, Raphe Malik on trumpet, Ramsey Ameen on violin, Sirone on bass, and Ronald Shannon Jackson on drums. The three songs performed are "Idut", "Serdab", and the nearly 30 minute-long "Holiday En Masque"  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a split top seam and light surface 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.

Brian Auger

Genesis
Polydor, Late 60s/1974. Near Mint-
US collection of work by Brian Auger from the late 60s – released on Polygram, most likely to cash in on the fame he was having with the Oblivion Express group. Not that that fame was that great, though – and frankly, we always like this stuff a lot better, as Brian's funky organ is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Chandler

Outlook
Eastbound, 1972. Near Mint-
Maybe the only album ever issued under the name of trumpeter Gary Chandler – but a smoking little set that rivals some of the best jazz funk records at the start of the 70s – including heavyweight classics on Prestige by Melvin Sparks, Leon Spencer, and Boogaloo Joe Jones! The feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gunter Hampel

Dances – Paris 1969
Birth, 1969. Very Good+
One of Gunter Hampel's better records, and one that features him playing solo on vibes, flute, piano, and bass clarinet. The bass clarinet stuff is especially good, and gets very noisy at times, with lots of repeated phrasing. The LP's broken up into "dances" for the different ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

Now!
Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
A tight swinger from Sonny Stitt – one of the standout 60s dates he recorded for the Impulse label, a place where he seemed to get even more care and focus in the studio! The record's got all the soulful swing of Stitt's classics for Roost, but also hits a slightly more lyrical groove at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
This session shouldn't work, but it does – and beautifully! By all means, an album that includes Diz, Art Blakey, Monk, and Sonny Stitt playing together should be a first-rate snoozer, with hackneyed performances of common-denominator material that they can all get their hooks around – ...

Horace Silver

Silver's Blue
Epic, 1956. Near Mint-
Killer early work from Horace Silver – and a rare non-Blue Note session from the 50s! The album's Horace's only date for Columbia, and it's got a feel that's similar to some of the Jazz Messengers' hardbop recordings for the label at the time – cooking with a soulful intensity at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flashlight

Flashlight
Philly Groove, 1978. Near Mint-
Flashlight is a sweet little disco combo – one who are working here with prime Philly maestros Norman Harris, Ron Kersey, Arnold Coley, and Bobby Eli – all of whom give the group's tracks a warmly soulful quality, and a sound that's more in the mode of early/mid 70s vocal groups like ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1971. Very Good+
A great summation of Jose Feliciano's genius during his initial years at RCA – that unique mix of Chicano soul, acoustic folk, and Latin rhythms that made him sound unlike anyone else at the time! There's a charm to this work that's undeniable – an instantly compelling feel that makes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Main Ingredient

Euphrates River
RCA, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold
Although the Main Ingredient were best known for their early 70's singles, this album from '74 is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula. Bert DeCoteaux was still arranging, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
