Jumpin Blues

LP (Item 407745) Prestige, 1970 — Condition: Near Mint-
An unusual one from the Dexter's early 70s years – a US session cut with a tighter format than some of Gordon's imports, in a mode that kind of recalls his best Blue Note work of the 60s! The group on the set features Wynton Kelly on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Roy Brooks on drums – and the tunes have a focus that's really great – still dominated by Dex's tone on tenor, but nicely compacted and recorded with a raspy sort of edge. Titles include "Evergreenish", "Star Eyes", "Straight No Chaser", "If You Could See Me Now", and "Jumpin Blues".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mid 80s Japanese stereo pressing – VIJ-4063 – with obi and insert.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

A pivotal album for Brother Jack McDuff – and one that has him cleaning the sound of his Hammond a bit – moving into the lean, clear tone that would dominate his work for most of the 60s!
