Fantastic work from John Klemmer – hard-edged, exploratory, with a mix of spiritualism and soulfulness, and a few touches of easy soloing. Todd Cochran (Bayete) plays Fender Rhodes, Woody Theus is on drums, and Klemmer's got an echoplex hooked up to his tenor on a few cuts. The tracks were recorded in a number of different settings, with different personnel – but the whole thing's got a unified feel, and shows the depth of Klemmer's approach to a variety of styles. Titles include the Miles-esque jammer "Last Summer's Spell", plus "Rapture Of The Deep", "Sea Of Passion", "Prayer For John Coltrane", and "Love Song To Katherine". (Black label ABC pressing. Cover has a promo sticker.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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 surprisingly big collection of tracks from Milt – documenting his oft-forgotten years at Impulse Records, plus a few more sides from albums he cut with other folks for ABC.

Tranquility (Impulse)
Impulse, 1968/1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
A really wonderful post-Chess album from pianist Ahmad Jamal – a set that's maybe got a bit more bite than some of his earlier work, and which features a bold groove that really points the way towards some of Jamal's sounds to come! The format and setting are familiar – Jamal's trio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Point Of Departure
Impulse, 1963. Good+ Gatefold
A great record – and one that's filled with so many wonderful little moments! The whole thing's a very cool, very off-beat set of jazz tracks recorded by vibist Gary McFarland, with a group that includes Jimmy Raney on guitar, Richie Kamuca on tenor, and Steve Swallow on bass – a ...

Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac
Impulse, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz! The record takes off from the soulful/modal mood of the early 60s groups with Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and features a young Mike Longo crafting some fantastic lines on piano, stretched out over tight rhythms on electric bass and drums, ...

Universal Consciousness
Impulse, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
One of Alice Coltrane's most adventurous albums – a beautiful blend of organ, harp, percussion, and strings – much of which are transcribed for the album by Ornette Coleman! The most haunting aspect of the album is Alice's work on organ – spare, jagged, with a nascent soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Streams
Impulse, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Classic live set for Impulse that marked Rivers' shift from a player who kept slightly inside in a modernist vein, to one who burst out in a very free style. Rivers plays long flowing lines on both flute and tenor, and he's backed by Cecil Mc Bee on bass and Norman Connors on drums. The whole LP ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of the killer albums that Michael White cut for Impulse Records in the early 70 – a sweet set of spiritual jazz that took his instrument to a whole new level!

Ear Of The Behearer
Impulse, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold
One of the few albums as a leader recorded by Dewey Redman during the years of his strongest contributions to avant garde jazz – a post-Coltrane, post-Ayler session that's filled with touches of the spiritualism that can be found in the work of other Impulse labelmates, such as Marion Brown ...

Chic Chic Chico
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
Very very cool set of weird grooves from Chico Hamilton. Some tracks are Latiny, others have lots of weird guitar, and they're all kind of spacey, but not exactly free. This period of Chico's is one of his weirdest, and it's kind of hard to figure out where he was heading, but the trip to that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Infant Eyes
Black Jazz, 1971. Very Good-
An undisputed 70s soul jazz classic – and arguably the best album that Doug Carn ever cut for the Black Jazz label!
